Also, the Artic sea ice has grown more than the average for the last three years, by 2 million square kilometers. In addition, the thickness of the ice is increasing in some areas, by about 10 to 20 centimeters, over last year.
I'm all for energy conservation and being responsible stewards of the environment, but I also know there is much we don't know about "climate change". I'm not ready to buy into anthropogenic global warming alarmism. These reports just go to show that the so-called "experts" don't know everything. With pretty much any field of scientific endeavor, there are three groups of facts: (1) what we know we know, (2) what we know we don't know and (3) what we don't know we don't know. So, all those man-made global warming pushers out there are being disingenious when they speak of sure things. And, as I posted yesterday, we don't need government to get clean alternative energy sources: the market will do that on its own. And the economy will be all the better for the government staying out of the way.
