Global Warming: Scientists Warn It May Be Too Late To Save The Ice Caps

Free Internet Press – February 19, 2007

This blog talks about the IPCC report that recently came out recently and focuses on the melting ice caps and glaciers. Within the article itself, it cites very little scientific evidence since it is discussing an existing report.

New studies of Greenland and Antarctica have forced a United Nations expert panel to conclude there is a 50% chance that widespread ice sheet loss “may no longer be avoided” because of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.

…would raise sea levels by four to six meters (12 to 18 feet)…

The melting process could take centuries, but increased warming caused by a failure to cut emissions would accelerate the ice sheets’ demise, and give nations less time to adapt to the consequences.

An experiment that hints we are wrong on climate change

Times Online February 11,2007

This is an interesting article that says that we don’t truly understand the Global Warming phenomenon. The science in this article is very interesting, especially the following parts:

But did anyone tell you that in east Antarctica the Adélie penguins and Cape petrels are turning up at their spring nesting sites around nine days later than they did 50 years ago? While sea-ice has diminished in the Arctic since 1978, it has grown by 8% in the Southern Ocean

So one awkward question you can ask, when you’re forking out those extra taxes for climate change, is “Why is east Antarctica getting colder?” It makes no sense at all if carbon dioxide is driving global warming.

Antarctic temperatures disagree with climate model predictions

Ohio State University – February 15, 2007

This is an extremely strong article that basically says the models that some scientists are using to predict doom and gloom are not complete or not correct. Interesting that this report comes out only days after IPCC report gave a 90% chance that humans are causing global warming.

I don’t understand how he can say that the models are not exact and then the global population is supposed to take these same models, assume the sky is falling, and spend billions of dollars trying to correct it.
