From the AP and myway news...
Since Clinton's inauguration, summer Arctic sea ice has lost the equivalent of Alaska, California and Texas. The 10 hottest years on record have occurred since Clinton's second inauguration. Global warming is accelerating. Time is close to running out, and Obama knows it.
"The time for delay is over; the time for denial is over," he said on Tuesday after meeting with former Vice President Al Gore, who won a Nobel Peace Prize for his work on global warming. "We all believe what the scientists have been telling us for years now that this is a matter of urgency and national security and it has to be dealt with in a serious way." .....
"We need to start in January making significant changes," Gore said in a recent telephone interview with The Associated Press. "This year coming up is the most important opportunity the world has ever had to make progress in really solving the climate crisis."
Scientists are increasingly anxious, talking more often and more urgently about exceeding "tipping points."

I think I might consider e-mailing Dina Cappeillo and ask her how she enjoyed the 3-6 inches of snow in Houston the other day since she lives in Houston? Maybe she should go on a little tour up anywhere in the northern half of the US today that is being pummeled by an arctic air mass and snow and ice? Millions without power. Same going on in the Southern Hemisphere and it is late spring there. It's still days away from winter even starting here.
I'm posting the cryosphere site again that gives 30 year satellite photos of both poles as well as the last 30 days animations of both poles from four different satellites each. Go watch the north pole during the last 30 days totally recover and now actually cover the entire northern fourth of planet earth.
Then read these folks saying the arctic is melting and sit in amazement as you with your own eyes witness the actual photo evidence of their blindness to reality and their prejudice to the heretical dogma of man made global warming and climate change.
