The iceman cometh

There is “unprecedented” climate change going on.  The ongoing impact of climate change is having an impact on the polar ice in ways that had previously not even been imagined.  Greenpeace was warning of a problem 13 years ago.   

“The first regions to be affected will be ice-dependent seas near but outside the Arctic Ocean proper, including the Bering Sea … These areas are currently covered in seasonal winter ice, which could vanish altogether with continued warming.”

The amount of floating ice in the Bering Sea reached an all time high last month.  Not just high for the year but the highest level ever recorded since record keeping began.  Probably makes up a little for the Artic sea ice proper being down a little.  Especially since the Antartic ice coverage is actually up a little more than that.  Overall measured sea ice in the planet is about 9000 square kilometers up from measured averages since measuring began.

Tricky thing, that global warming.

    And this means what for me?

    Well, it means that while we have had all the publicity about global warming(climate change) the total amount of sea ice in the world is higher and there’s even more in the Bering Sea than there’s ever been. So global warming’s hokey. You knew that.
    Just like Presbo’s birth certificate. But they admitted to that.
