Lancaster Sound This is what the new Arctic will look like: it is very beautiful but not what the Arctic should be. The latest predictions are that the ice-free summers are likely to arrive between 2013 and 2030. That will open the Arctic to shipping and oil and gas exploration, while the warmer air at the top of the globe will change rain, wind and weather patterns far to the south.

    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.
