    Another example of government incompetence….
    “With the trend that we’re seeing now, it’s very likely that there’ll be a day within this century that there’ll be no ice in the arctic,” Josefino Comiso, senior research scientist at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center.

    • Andy DC says:

      Considering there is 86 years left of this century, none of us will be alive to see if it happens. A predicition that far out cannot be proved or disproved, so has absolutely no meaning.

    • Bill_W says:

      Wow, a whole day?? But the ice will be back up at 12-14 million sq. miles by mid-winter.

    • tom0mason says:

      I predict that NASA Goddard Space Flight Center will be a solar and windfarm area before the end of the century.
      Unless the unlikely thing happens, and someone in Washington presses the ‘Common Sense’ button.

    Slightly off topic, but here is the most spectacular specimen of alarmist claptrap I have encountered for many moons.

    Horrific Methane Eruptions in East Siberian Sea

    A catastrophe of unimaginable propertions is unfolding in the Arctic Ocean. Huge quantities of methane are erupting from the seafloor of the East Siberian Sea and entering the atmosphere over the Arctic Ocean.

    Such a shame the author couldn’t spell ‘proportions’.

    • jimash1 says:

      The idea that these methane deposits should remain locked in forever unto eternity,
      is yet another failure of the alarmist viewpoint to perceive reality, not unlike the apparent belief that in a perfect world enormous sheets of ice are permanent unchanging fixtures.

    • Gary H says:

      Well obviously, all of that missing heat, has been found. It’s at the bottom of the E Siberian Sea and is melting the once frozen sea bed.

      Note: All of the East Siberian Sea would have been well above sea level (abeit covered in ice) at the end of the last ice age.

      On spelling Mark Twain had this to say, from his recently-published Autobiography:

      As I have said before, I never had any large respect for good spelling. That is my feeling yet. Before the spelling book came with its arbitrary forms, men unconsciously revealed shades of their characters, and also added enlightening shades of expression to what they wrote by their spelling, and so it is possible that the spelling book has been a doubtful benevolence to us.

      To witch eye agree.
      🙂

    Ah yes, alarming indeed. So send us billions more of those less and less valuable $$$$$$$$ so we can keep up out alarmist rhetoric. It’s for the polar bears…….. errrr……… children. Whatever, just send more of it.

  4. Thomas Fox says:

    This deep sea methane eruption is truly alarming measuring 2000 + parts per billion when C02 is a small 400 ppm so how can humanity stop such an increase ,if this is a new phenomenon we are all surly all doomed long before mid century ?
