Jones Sound In the far north of Canada, the sea between Devon Island and Ellesmere Island used to be full of ice in early August. When I travelled there in 2007, the ice was gone except for these beautiful blue floes made of hard old ice. I arrived at an Inuit village to be told “we have never seen a ship here this early, ever.” The pace of change across the Arctic has stunned scientists: that catastrophic collapse in 2007 reduced the area of ice to a level that computer models had predicted would not arrive until 2056.

    Yawn. Another NON scientific warmist attempt to evangelize….

    The pictures are wonderful though….

  • Too bad

    What a shame you weren’t around as the Ice Age (or the more recent Little Ice Age) ended. You could have rung the global warming alarms and ensured that nothing happened to change the Ice Age climate. Come to think of it, you would have been useful during the entire 4.5 billion years of Earth’s climate change history. What a shame, indeed.
