In an observation that is stunning in it’s obviousness and stupidity, The Associated Press notes that Arctic Sea Ice is now melting.
Study: Arctic sea ice melting faster than expected
WASHINGTON – Arctic sea ice is melting so fast most of it could be gone in 30 years. A new analysis of changing conditions in the region, using complex computer models of weather and climate, says conditions that had been forecast by the end of the century could occur much sooner.
The arctic sea ice will only be gone in thrity years . . . If it stays SPRINGTIME in the ARCTIC for thirty years, Randolph, you idiot.
A change in the amount of ice is important because the white surface reflects sunlight back into space. When ice is replaced by dark ocean water that sunlight can be absorbed, warming the water and increasing the warming of the planet.
Duh. No kidding?
A change in the amount of ice is also important because it signals springtime, when momma polar bears and poppa polar bears get together to make itsy-bitsy polar bears. Y’know — birds and bees type stuff.
There’s more self-flagellation and doomsaying in the article; but I have serious doubts about an Ap Science Writer who isn’t bright enough to capitalize both letters in “AP”.
