Polar Ice Caps Melting!
American Thinker ^ | January 02, 2010 | Larrey Anderson

Posted on 01/02/2010 2:29:54 PM PST by annie laurie

The Watts Up With That website has a scary story about our melting polar ice caps. John Lockwood from Washington D.C. found an interesting article from the Washington Post. Here are some excerpts:

The Arctic seems to be warming up. Reports ... all point to a radical change in climatic conditions, and hitherto unheard of high temperatures in that part of the earth's surface.

Ice conditions were exceptional. In fact, so little ice has never before been noted. Dr. Hoel reports that he made a section of the Gulf Stream at 81 degrees north latitude and took soundings to a depth of 3,100 meters. These show the Gulf Stream very warm, and it could be traced as a surface current till beyond the 81st parallel.

Where formerly great masses of ice were found, there are now often moraines, accumulations of earth and stone. At many points where glaciers formerly extended far into the sea they have entirely disappeared.

The article was written in 1922. See the whole story here.

In other news......It was 37 below zero in Minnesota this
morning, same as it was in 1922,1932,1942,1952,1962,1972,
1982,1992,2002, and will be in 2012. Did I mention it was
37 below in every year in between also?

Not surprising, given that the Earth is still warming after emerging from the last glacial epoch, and another warming trend that followed the end of the Little Ice Age in 1850.

Same as it ever was. Only in 1922 it was real, not political manipulation for one world government by Socialists.

But the great prophet AlGorian has foretold that such meltings will occur unless trillions of U.S. dollars are immediately extorted... er I mean redirected to his carbon credit companies and third world nations. A distinguished Nobel Peace Prize winner wouldn’t lie, would he?

1922 was before Penn State professor Michael Mann — namesake of “Mann-made global warming” — perfected grant hustling, junk science, crisis mongering, and tree ring data cherry picking.

Back then, so they say, science was pretty much on the up and up.

Neato.

And remember our fright merchants are talking about GLOBAL WARMING, not some N. hemisphere regional effect. Antarctic ice is growing, so maybe we need to spend billions keeping the centigrades from fleeing in the wrong direction.

37 degrees below Zero!

What fond memories I have of THAT!

Back in the good old days around 1988BC; that means “BeforeClinton”!

Snowmobiling in Yellowstone Park......while lying in the sack getting psyched up for another day on the trails, and watching the morning weather on the TV in West Yellowstone, MT.........I saw the temp hit -37 degrees.

But if you are dressed properly, it is a WONDERFUL experience!

Finally, an explanation for why the polar ice caps are melting that makes sense.

Some one needs to start a non-profit to collect money to protect polar bears ....... from freezing. I can see the TV ads now after we collect enough money from the internet. Can you imagine the reaction from the globul alarmists? Truly a WTF moment if there was ever one.

Thanks for the link!

How foolish can we be, allowing the world to end in 1922 by doing nothing about global warming, and now allowing it to end again in 2010?

Maybe in 88 more years there will be 100,000 Al Gore clones; enough to stop the insanity and prevent the world from ending for a third time!

Thanks for that link!

The video is short, factual, to the point and should be emailed to all your friends, co-workers, neighbors and relatives.

It’s the best, concise and colorful explanation I’ve seen that can be understood by a layman (believe me I’ve tried the longer way!)

Instead of Gore taking credit for inventing the internet, he ought to fess up and take credit for inventing global warming.

There’s an early 20th Century map of Greenland that shows islands and coastline that are only now being revealed again. Pretty sure I saw it originally at WattsUpWithThat...

The ice caps are not "melting." Arctic sea ice traditionally melts and reduces in size during the summer. The retreat has been increasing, but last summer was a little greater than the year before. OTOH, there is no evidence the Greenland ice cap is melting in the interior.

The interior of the Antarctic ice cap is actually thickening.
