New research shows the Arctic is practically baking under anthropogenic global warming, hottest in 120,000 years Comments

A new study reveals that temperatures across the Canadian Arctic are now greater than they have been in the last 44,000 years, and possibly longer. Scientists say it is more proof of anthropogenic global warming. Continue Reading

    More of us need to become active in addressing the climate change problem. It's an aspect of being a good steward. Join the effort. Here's one of many places to get more information. http://exhaustinghabitability.com/

    Interesting time line. The last ice age also called the Wisconsin Ice Age lasted from 85,000 to 11,000 years ago. i think the article written by activists should be reviewed by journalist before belief is accepted.

    There is a lot of politics and population bomb scare tactics behind the AGW hypothesis.

    That and the climategate scandal in which a number of climate researchers were caught
    falsifying data and collaborating to smear academics who disagreed with them, does not
    add up to science.

    I know there is a claim that there is a 'scientific consensus', but this doesn't persuade.
    There was a consensus of scientists who believed that Copernicus and Galileo were wrong.

    There are so many problems with the AGW hypothesis, and AGW is being pushed so dogmatically, that anyone that questions the hypothesis is immediately branded a 'denier'.

    The use of the term 'denier' is a rhetorical device, intended to put one in the same category of 'holocaust denier'.

    Neither the consensus, nor the rhetoric, are 'scientific'.

    For a scientific mainstream that cannot adequately explain why the corona is hotter than the surface of the sun, or the cause of surface temperatures fluctuation on other planets of the solar system, its a bit of a stretch to say that AGW is scientifically 'sound' and cannot be questioned.

    I'm not defending the use of fossil fuels, which is another 'rhetorical device' used to silence argument on the AGW hypothesis, namely that only people in thrall to the oil industry would dispute the surface logic of the AGW theory.

    There are a number of international policies being drawn up on the AGW theory, which is alarming, given that a) the science isn't "settled" and b) those policies have far reaching implications.
