Fwd: Arctic ice cap melting 30 years ahead of forecast

Arctic ice cap melting 30 years ahead of forecast

WASHINGTON --The Arctic ice cap is melting much faster than expected
and is now about 30 years ahead of predictions made by the
Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a U.S. ice expert said

This means the ocean at the top of the world could be free or nearly
free of summer ice by 2020, three decades sooner than the global
panel's gloomiest forecast of 2050.

No ice on the Arctic Ocean during summer would be a major spur to
global warming, said Ted Scambos, a glaciologist at the National Snow
and Ice Center in Colorado.

"Right now ... the Arctic helps keep the Earth cool," Scambos said in
a telephone interview.

"Without that Arctic ice, or with much less of it, the Earth will
warm much faster."
That is because the ice reflects light and heat; when it is gone, the
much darker land or sea will absorb more light and heat, making it
more difficult for the planet to cool down, even in winter, he said.

Scambos and co-authors of the study, published in the journal
Geophysical Research Letters, used satellite data and visual
confirmation of Arctic ice to reach their conclusions, a far
different picture than that obtained from computer models used by the
scientists of the intergovernmental panel.

"The IPCC report was very careful, very thorough and cautious, so
they erred on the side of what would certainly occur as opposed to
what might occur," Scambos said in a telephone interview.


The wide possibility of what might occur included a much later melt
up north, or a much earlier one, Scambos said.

"It appears we're on pace about 30 years earlier than expected to
reach a state where we don't have sea ice or at least not very much
in late summer in the Arctic Ocean," he said.

He discounted the notion that the sharp warming trend in the Arctic
might be due to natural climate cycles. "There aren't many periods in
history that are this dramatic in terms of natural variability,"
Scambos said. He said he had no doubt that this was caused in large
part by greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, which he said was the
only thing capable of changing Earth on such a large scale over so
many latitudes.

Asked what could fix the problem -- the topic of a new report by the
intergovernmental panel to be released on Friday in Bangkok --
Scambos said a large volcanic eruption might hold Arctic ice melting
at bay for a few years.

But he saw a continued warm-up as inevitable in the coming decades.

"Long-term and for the next 50 years, I think even the new report
will agree that we're in for quite a bit of warming," Scambos said.

"We just barely now, I think, have enough time and enough collective
will to be able to get through this century in good shape, but it
means we have to start acting now and in a big way."
A very insightful interview with John McCarthy on 911 Truth and the
Citizens Grand Jury debacle.

Israel Zionists and US Fascists Murder USS Liberty Crew in War Plot -
Operation Cyanide and the 303 Committee

Dead in the Water

During the Six-Day War, Israel attacked and nearly sank the USS
Liberty belonging to its closest ally, the USA. Thirty-four American
servicemen were killed in the two-hour assault by Israeli warplanes
and torpedo boats. Survivors were placed under threat of prison for
revealing the atrocity.

Excellent BBC Documentary.

Documented announcement of proven facts of tyranny for at least 3
years as documented by JFK II - Massive Documented Evidence of the
Participants of the JFK Assassinations -
http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=2928756561478705121 - JFK II
confirms the noting of the participants as named in "Take a Look at
Operation Northwoods" Oct 14, 2004 by Ed Ward, MD.

Yes, there was a "Operation Northwoods" written and proposed to then
President Kennedy by L.L. Lemnitzer (Chairman, Joint Chiefs of
Staff), the document that was signed and approved by all of the Joint
Chiefs of Staff has been declassified. You can also find G.B. Sr.
connections with Brig. General Lansdale, Air Force General and Deputy
Director of the CIA Charles P. Cabell (brother of Earle Cabell, Mayor
of Dallas at the time of the JFK Assassination), Frank Sturgis and E,
Howard Hunt. GB Sr. did work for the CIA prior to 1966, with his ties
with Robert Mosbacher and Felix Rodriguez during that time. He also
may have had a hand in Operations: 40, Mongoose, Bounty, Bingo, Dirty
Tricks, Good Times, and Cyclone.

The Secret Government: The Constitution in Crisis - Bill Moyers 1987

How did US get to full fledged world wide tyranny? An Excellent
Documentary to see the progression of tyranny. This is the full
length 90 min. version of Bill Moyer's 1987 scathing critique of the
criminal subterfuge carried out by the Executive Branch of the United
States Government to carry out operations which are clearly contrary
to the wishes and values of the American people. The ability to
exercise this power with impunity is facilitated by the National
Security Act of 1947. The thrust of the exposé is the Iran-Contra
arms and drug-running operations which flooded the streets of our
nation with crack cocaine. The significance of the documentary is
probably greater today in 2007 than it was when it was made. We now
have a situation in which these same forces have committed the most
egregious terrorist attack on US soil and have declared a fraudulent
so-called "War on Terror". The ruling regime in the US who have
conducted the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq, are now banging the
war drum against Iran. We have the PATRIOT act which has stripped us
of many of our basic civil rights justified by the terror of 9/11
produced by the US government..
