This sucks NASA releases time-lapse of the disappearing Arctic polar ice cap

NASA posted this video to YouTube with this description, “Arctic sea ice has not only been shrinking in surface area in recent years, it’s becoming younger and thinner as well. In this animation, where the ice cover almost looks gelatinous as it pulses through the seasons, cryospheric scientist Dr. Walt Meier of NASA Goddard Space Flight Center describes how the sea ice has undergone fundamental changes during the era of satellite measurements.”

2017 was once again one of the hottest years on record, ranked as the second-warmest by NASA and third-warmest by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

    Fake news. NASA are not credible scientists. The earth was way warmer than now before and it flourished with the dinosaurs...
    On a more serious note, I’m amazed how people can be so selfish and short termists out of pure greed...

    Apparently, there's a hidden radioactive heat source melting Antarctica from below, so I wouldn't be surprised if there's one under the Arctic pole too, but yeah let's blame it all on human activity :rolleyes: It makes us look very smart when we mock Big Bang and global warming deniers.

    Global warming alarmists can be more dogmatic than religious folks at times.

    Halla2 you're going to deny the big bang kamena Mr manifesto on top of the global warming alarmist BS you've been posting? Do you also think the earth is flat and that vaccines cause autism?

    Here's a quote from your article:

    '"The process of melting we observe has probably been going on for thousands or maybe even millions of years and isn't directly contributing to ice sheet change," says lead researcher Tom Jordan, from the British Antarctic Survey (BAS).

    "However, in the future the extra water at the ice sheet bed may make this region more sensitive to external factors such as climate change."

    The team of experts thinks radioactive rocks and hot water spurting from inside Earth's crust is contributing to this additional melt, based on observations taken up to 750 kilometres (almost 470 miles) inland from the shore."

    The ice sheets melting faster is not something you can chalk up to hey look at this, global warming alarmists human activity is not a factor!

    It really is scary how fast things are changing in the artic circles but i dont really see anything changing before theveconomies start to really suffer from meteorological aberrations.

    South and Southeast asia region has 1200 ongoing/under design coal power plants fir the next decade. They represent half the worlds population and have very consumerism oriented societies living what the west went through during the 60s and 70s, albeit with 10 times the population.

    Clean water sources are less and less reliable/usable and will be the first to be hit as climate change worsens. Water is going to take the headlines soon enough

    Human caused CO2 emissions exceed significantly volcanic caused CO2 emissions. Throughout earth's history when there were episodes of increased volcanic activity, the consequence was global warming periods. Consider today that the burning of fossil fuels produce well over a hundred times more CO2 emissions than volcanos, you can deduce that humans can indeed cause global climate change.

    Let's assume you're right for the sake of argument. What can we actually do about it?

    No need to assume, it's a factual statement. Focus and invest more in renewable/alternative energy. The technology is already there, just needs more development. Also make sure [] like you don't hold public office.

    Such news always depresses me. And what depresses me even more is that there are people who still think human-caused climate change is a hoax.

    I think the economy will not change it will be either carbon capture (which might be useless) or we deal with the fact that most of earths surface will not be habitable anymore and maybe go buy a house 15 KMs from the north sea and hope to have a sea view in 20 years! An deal with climate genocides and refugees (that already started due to the dry waves in africa)....maybe californian refugees in a few years!

    Norway sounds nice from july to august @Muki !

    I plan on creating a thread to discuss climate change in more detail, but:

    We know there's more CO2.

    We know that it's down to us -- partly because we can, in effect, carbon date it but largely because we know how much carbon we burn because we know how much tax we paid on it.

    We know that CO2 absorbs IR.

    We know that the Earth is not as hot as the Sun (and that the Sun is cooling).

    Because of those, we know that CO2 acts as a greenhouse gas.

    We know that the measurements show that the Earth is warming due to greenhouse gas effect.

    What the hell is there to doubt @manifesto?

    The only room for debate here is whether something else is warming the planet besides human activity. If so, what is it?

    Stop listening to crackpots. Buy subscription to a climate science journal and read the literature. If you don't want to buy a subscription then these three websites do a good job of explaining the science (from reputable sources) to laymen like you and I:

    These sources useless because we all know all the scientists (i dunno even what that means) in the world gathered together in a supersecret complex built in antarctica...with food and open bar and they decided to invent global warming...it was voted at almost 100% and the few fellas that were against it were killed!! 1 was able to survive and took a plane to new york city trump tower and told mr donald what was happening!

    Our hero Frederik Otter risked his life for the truth to tell us that penguins are trying to over the earth and want us to think they are weak and their homes are threatened so we forget the fact that they are a extremely advanced society that go on in their days wearing suits and slapping each other on the heads. The penguin lobby paid and threated every respectable scientist in the world ...and now the plan is moving forward but thank the lord and we have donald to save us!!!
