Published on YouTube Dec 5, 2013: The most sobering evidence of the planet’s response to greenhouse gases comes from the fossil record. New evidence scientists are collecting suggests that ice sheets may be more vulnerable than previously believed, which has huge implications for sea level rise.

“We as a species have never experienced 400 parts per million of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere,” Guy McPherson, professor emeritus of evolutionary biology, natural resources, and ecology at the University of Arizona and a climate change expert of 25 years, told me. “We’ve never been on a planet with no Arctic ice, and we will hit the average of 400 ppm… within the next couple of years. At that time, we’ll also see the loss of Arctic ice in the summers… This planet has not experienced an ice-free Arctic for at least the last three million years.” [ see http://co2now.org/ ]

Professor Peter Wadhams, a leading Arctic expert at Cambridge University, has been measuring Arctic ice for 40 years, and his findings underscore McPherson’s fears. “The fall-off in ice volume is so fast it is going to bring us to zero very quickly,” Wadhams tolda reporter. According to current data, he estimates “with 95% confidence” that the Arctic will have completely ice-free summers by 2018. (U.S. Navy researchers have predicted an ice-free Arctic even earlier — by 2016.)

Brilliant! The data and science speak for themselves and help debunk the
science woo woo of climate change deniers and the shills of Big Oil and the
Koch brothers.

In order to combat the melting of ice sheets with the rise in sea water,
you take thorium, natural gas, oil, and the contaminated waters from
Fukushima nuclear disaster and mix them all together to create a new energy
fuel source. This will reduce the waters that cover the earth from 73% to
68% in the next five thousand to ten thousand years. I need top level
scientists across the globe to do accurate research and come up with the
correct measurements in my concoction.

“potential underestimating ” is another word for bad science, and seems to
be an ongoing problem for “scientists” aligned with the IPCC, like Mr Alley
projecting q 15m sea level rise, not unlike AL Gore predicting 4ºC in the
span that’s warmed only 0.6ºC. Hansen confirms this vid is baseless
propaganda, and NOTHING TO DO WITH VALID SCIENTIFIC THEORY

co2 levels will hit rock solid 400 ppm by 2015, after that it will
skyrocket to 500 ppm within 20 years as more an more methane is released on
top of everything else. we can say goodbye to cities like new York.

Global average temperature is up despite what people see as a colder than
normal late fall early winter so far in most of the US. How can you take a
look at this video and the data and say these scientists are lying or that
you do not care about sea level during the lifetime of your children and
your children’s children? maybe you do not know that a 1 meter /20 years
sea level rise is catastrophic to humans. Or maybe you do not care as long
as it does not negatively affect your wealth currently.

Apart from making me ashamed to be related to these idiots, some of the
dull comments by troll deniers make me regret that, although the shit will
very like hit the fan during their lifetime, it is unlikely that the dumb
twats will suffer enough for their stupidity. And, lets face it, the other
species upon the Earth could do with a break from humanity, so riddled with
individuals with shit for brains so, bring it on, the sooner the better and
make a fresh start.

The Earth’s climate been changing for over 4 million years. We either adapt
to environmental changes or we don’t. Why is that so difficult for people
to understand?

what a joke..the worlds oceans are at some of the lowest levels
they have ever been …only during ice ages has the ocenas been
lower and then everything is covered in ice …. the earth over
most of it’s history has been at a much higher temperature and sea
levels have been higher … we are in the longest cold period of
earths history ..of course its going to get hotter sometime ..there
is no “natural balance” that we are somehow changing …. nothing
stays the same, the earths temperature has changed dramatically many times
and when it changes it changes quickly … the LOW temperature the earth is
at now is unusual and will increase no matter what activity humans are
involved in …if we really want to stop human activity having any effects
it’s easy .. STOP letting our world population increase
