Here We Go Again: Arctic Ice To Disappear Again

Only this time, after FAIL tags for the previous predictions by different groups of the Arctic being completely ice free with a year or a few years during the summer, now…

New data released Thursday suggests that the Arctic Ocean will be “largely ice free” during summer within a decade.

Run for the hills, the sky is falling! Oh, wait, more and more media sources and scientists are noticing, and, more importantly, speaking out on the whole “no warming in 10 years” thingy

The report, complied by the UK-based Catlin Arctic Survey and the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), is the latest research into ice thickness in the Arctic.

No, no, nothing biased in a report by those groups.

Researchers predict that within 20 years ice cover will be completely gone during the warmer months.

And, in 20 years, everyone will have forgotten that the groups made those predictions, so, we won’t remember to use the FAIL tag. But, it will get them notice, and, oh yes, $$$$$.

Professor Wadhams, who has analyzed the expedition data, added: “The Catlin Arctic Survey data supports the new consensus view that the Arctic will be ice-free in summer within about 20 years, and much of that decrease will be happening within 10 years.”

Consensus is NOT science.

Hadow fears that the current climate models developed by scientists may not be extreme enough. But he is hopeful that this new data will spur world leaders into action.

In other words, he thinks the models do not lie enough to scare people into living like it’s 1799.

Awe, they even have a cute picture of a polar bear on the ice looking sad

Too bad the polar bear population is exploding.

And, oh, the polar bear isn’t really sad. He/she is figuring out a way to get to the photographer for a quick snack.
