Palin did NOT say that.

She said can see the polar ice caps melting from her house.

Right, the new Republican line is that they believe climate change is happening, but humans aren't causing it.
Next they will say humans are causing it, but it's only Democrats.

They already say all 3 of those things as soon as previous statements have been demonstrated to be fabrications to their face.  They will just jump straight from one wrong opinion to another as soon as it's necessary.  The same republican will hold 3 contradictory positions, and accuse you of "not getting it" when you point that out.

Also, that it's not actually a problem. Well, it's a problem for some, but a benefit for others. Like Russia and Canada.

Nah, they're already shifting that goalpost. The line is that there's nothing we can do about it. Although some of them have decided to take the "resignation" route and pretend that it's all good and it just means you'll be able to take a beach vacation in eastern PA in a few years.

Because farking with global food production couldn't possible have any negative consequences...

That was where mind went, and I was thinking it was odd the Subby thought he was a woman.

Palin reference threw me off a bit.

/then again, I am Canadian and he grew up in my neck of the woods.

FTA: The melting of arctic sea ice is indirectly leading to higher mortality among caribou calves

So i guess they're fine, then?

Not when you consider that (1) most of those gains were in penguin-land rather than Santa-land, and (2) 2012 was an extreme low for the arctic ice extent so 2013 shows a year-over-year gain despite being well below the 30-year trend.

Not really. Keep in mind that there was extremely low sea ice extent in 2012. An 'increase' this year compared to last year is still consistent with an overall decline in sea ice extent. See also: regression to the mean

Typical denier ... references everything to an extreme to push your propaganda.

I think it is time you plot some graphs that start in 1998. Not 1999 and not 1997; 2000 is definitely out of the question. The only graphs deniers like are ones that start at 1998 (or ones that go back so far that there is absolutely no resolution over the last 100 years).

It's good to keep in mind where information is coming from and the quality of said information. TFA is in reference to a scientific paper and therefore has at least some grounding in evidence. It probably isn't the best idea to lump that in with the opinions of celebrities, or articles that have nothing to do with climate change.

That aside, it's difficult to think of things that aren't affected in one way or another by climate - even more difficult if one includes indirect effects.

Maybe the caribou should adapt and get their lazy a$$e$ there earlier.

If you mean by 'dingbats', scientists and the scientific literature. The paper TFA is about can be found here:
