Arctic ice melt slows down: NASA
AFP News ^ | September 21, 2013

Posted on 09/21/2013 4:21:31 PM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer

Arctic sea ice melted less this summer and continued to cover a greater expanse than last year's record minimum, NASA data shows.

But the remaining Arctic sea ice cover is much thinner overall compared to the previous decades by as much as 50 percent. Scientists say thinner seasonal ice is replacing older, thicker ice as it melts away.

"Thinner ice melts completely at a faster rate than thicker ice does, so if the average thickness of Arctic sea ice goes down, it's more likely that the extent of the summer ice will go down as well," said Goddard senior scientist Joey Comiso-Wanker.

"At the rate we're observing this decline, it's very likely that the Arctic's summer sea ice will completely disappear within this century."

We were already warned that the Arctic Ice cap would be totally gone this year, in 2013. Since that didn’t come to pass, I guess it’s time to revise the scare tactic and stretch it out to sometime this century.

Par for the course for the Global Warming/Climate Change-Must-Have-A-Society-Controlling-Policy-and-Tax crowd.

NASA is nothing more than another arm of the Ministry of Propaganda and Muslim Outreach.

Science there has regressed to superstition a la the middle ages.

I’m not sure I want an anti Christian, queer military force defending America. I know I don’t want an ineffective border control force.

The democrat sheep all still believe in the brainwashing the mainstream media programmed into them.

I laugh at and ridicule these idiot democrats all over the Internet and in person.

Of course it is thinner.

It is newly formed ice.

After this winter, it will be much thicker.

You just knew the warming fanatics would find something to complain about. Maybe six months of darkness will thicken up the ice.

OK!! Everybody pay attention!

Lesson for today:

1. The sun is 1,300,000 times as big as the earth.

2. The sun is a ball of fire that controls our climates.

3. The earth is a rock.

4. The earth is a speck in comparison to the size of the sun.

5. Inhabitants of the earth are less than specks.

Study Question: How do less-than-specks in congress plan to control the sun?

yes and C02 is less than 0.04% of the atmosphere. but Democrats want us to believe that a change that is a small percentage of that tiny amount will affect the Earth’s climate more than the Sun does.C02 does not affect the Earth’s climate at all .I have democrats on this site calling me names cause I said C02 does not affect the Earth’s climate. democrats are dumber than lint

Don't look at congress. The one who thinks he's in control is elsewhere.

And dumber than a box of rocks.

Dumber than a bag of hair.

Intelligence of weeds.

Democrats are from the LEFT side of the Bell Curve. That’s why they’re referred to as the LEFT.
