    Don’t worry. The ice will melt The Day After Tomorrow.

    It will be interesting to see how the New York Times or the Washington Post reports this development. Can they be honest and report there is too much ice in the Arctic to permit drilling.

    Oh, by the way, the Russians and the Norwegians would have used ice breakers by now. The PC evil oil company has committed not to do that. I wonder why the eco terrorists pushed for the no ice breaker provision if they believe the ice is melting.

    Global warming skeptics as knowledgeable about science as climate change believers, study says

    A study published Sunday in the journal Nature Climate Change finds that people who are not that worried about the effects of global warming tend to have a slightly higher level of scientific knowledge than those who are worried, as determined by their answers to questions like:

    “Electrons are smaller than atoms — true or false?”

    Dr. Richard Lindzen, said that the finding that skeptics know as much or more about science surprised him “not at all.”

    “MIT alumni are among my most receptive audiences,” he added.

    One would assume the German Chancellor would have no trouble locating her own country, and its main cities

    You could say “this is not your father’s global warming.”
    When they predicted in the 1980s over and over again that by now it would be hotter than a WT, and snow would be a thing of the past, and Antarctica and the Arctic would be nearly all melted even in winter, and that by now many low lying areas and countries would be flooded by a bulging sea, I’m sure they knew they were full of bull. They just thought they’d get their policies enacted soon, and by the time now came around, it would be too late, a fait accompli.
    Yet they continue to do the same thing. Just a shrill and wearisome cycle of continuous doom and gloom. Is it ever going to stop? Will this broken record of obviously false and laughable proclamations of doom ever cease? Spare us. No mas! Por favor.

  6. Isn’t this good news since we have more Ice?
