Tom Nelson reported last year an amazing quote from President Obama’s “mandatory abortion” science advisor – John Holdren.
…if you lose the summer sea ice, there are phenomena that could lead you not so very long thereafter to lose the winter sea ice as well. And if you lose that sea ice year round, it’s going to mean drastic climatic change all over the hemisphere.
I realize that Holdren is from California and probably not well acquainted with the properties of ice outside of his freezer, but most people understand that below the freezing point – ice forms.
Temperatures in the high Arctic are already dipping below -30ºC, and this is only the second week of Autumn.

Temperatures in the Arctic will remain far below freezing until next May or June. A new Manhattan size area of ice forms every minute and a half. More than 1,000 Manhattans of new ice form every day.
How does someone so completely disconnected with reality become the President’s science advisor? What does that say about the competency and intelligence of the President?
h/t to Marc Morano for bringing this to my attention.
