Arctic Sea Ice Extent Now Largest Since 2001

Quoting The Daily Mail:

“The amount of sea ice covering the Arctic dramatically increased last month, reaching levels not seen at this time of year for nearly a decade.

Returning ice - after years of declining cover - has astonished climate scientists who blamed unusually cold weather over the Bering Sea.

Researchers said they recorded the most ice in March since 2001 - and that the cover is approaching long-term average levels for the first time in ten years.”

Arctic Sea Ice is becoming a serious danger to the world.

We should convene an IPCC to investigate ways to mitigate this crisis.

Hurry before it is too late.

Hypsithermal,

Right you are! Just extend the last month of ice gain linearly into the next century and it should be clear to all what an unmitigated catastrophe the entire planet is facing.

Next month, when the line begins to drop, will prove NOTHING! That will be just a momentary pause in the march to certain calamity.

QUICK! Somebody make a movie! Call Hollywood celebrities! We need their help in spreading the word!

Well, I have a solution to expanding ice.

I can save you.

It might involve some cash expenditures; can you handle such?

Your life depends on it; remember.

SBVOR said...

I dunno...
Polls indicate that once the folks understand the monetary cost of saving the world from mythological horrors, they begin to shift their views.

Maybe I should reconsider this.

hypsithermal said...

Yikes you are threatening my business.

That is NOT COOL.

Please contact Waxman and/or you will be audited.

sorry.

Hope and Change.

And, about that bang for the buck…
It don’t look so good.
