    This is serious Steven! I had a missing ice cube threaten my glass of tea once.

    Okay, I admit I stole the ice cube for my margarita, but I am returning it because I don’t drink margaritas when the air temp is under 85 degrees. And, in NA, that appears to be a long time away.

    (OT, but whatever happened to Mike xxxxcola? I don’t remember the x’s, but he was a retired astronomer that knew IR really well, and commented here often.)

    Do Not try to talk them out of it. This is natural selection in action.
    Like the suicidal fish, it is probably due to the “ocean acidity” causing these women to lose their sense of self preservation. So you see, CO2 is to blame.
    Whatever you do, don’t send money.

    Oops, my bad….So that’s where my slice off the 9th tee at the Greenland Country Club ended up. Thanks Steve!

    Not just their sense of fear but feeling ability to move arms and legs then breath air . Then the acidic water will take the hair right off there heads . :>(

    The only problem I see for the Arctic ice at the end of next summer is the level of solar radiations- it has been a bit too high recently.
    OTOH, the Atlantic has been colder recently than in the corresponding periods of 2013 and previous years,


    This should be enough for the rate of melting to be similar to last year’s, or even 2005/06.
    The present relatively fast melting,

    is entirely due to high solar radiations.
