Rep. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) suggested a novel use Saturday for a 100-square-mile ice sheet that has broken off Greenland.
An iceberg four times the size of Manhattan has broken off Greenland, creating plenty of room for global warming deniers to start their own country," Markey said in a statement. So far, 2010 has been the hottest year on record, and scientists agree arctic ice is a canary in a coal mine that provides clear warnings on climate."
Some scientists have attributed the breaking off of the ice sheet to abnormally warm temperatures this year.
Markey, who chairs the Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming, co-authored the House version of the climate change bill that's currently stalled in the Senate.
He said it was "unclear how many giant blocks of ice it will take to break the block of Republican climate deniers in the US Senate who continue hold this critical clean energy and climate legislation hostage."
Humans have nothing to do with changes in the climate. We can only react, and adapt to the situation, as best we can.
Hay, ignorant dorko congressman - even the chief scientist at IPCC admitted that there is “no statistical significance” to support the warming or cooling hypothesis in the recent global temperature record. Observing the carving of a glacier, which has happened for eons, is not evidence of global warming - it could be the opposite - an unusually massive ice pack on the continent pushed off an unusually big piece of ice. That is happening in the Antarctic.
Ignorant delusional idiot -----> Rep. Ed Markey (D-Mass.)
Pretty ballzy talk for the side that has no income and no guns.
In another solar system, preferably.
Even more preferably, a solar system in a completely different galaxy...
snow in Brazil and Argentina this week ...........
Very true. On this page is a summary of polls showing that a majority attribute global warming to planetary trends and not human activity. Send us a postcard, Markey.
.....Markey is a canary.
He’s just keeping the ASS in MASS.
