Sorry, it's a hoax/It's actually cooler now than in the past/It's natural change/It's not our fault/We can't do anything about it anyway/We could do something about it but it would cost too much/It's too late to do anything about it.

The extent of ice in the arctic is at the lowest level for this date in recent history.
The graph demonstrates that it's been a rather persistent progression towards less and less ice during summer.


For what it's worth, the ice that is there is also dramatically thinner than in prior years.

The great part is all of the carbon being released, feeding into what caused it, thus completing the circle of life.  Ever wonder why the billionaires are are so anxious to get to Mars?

I was all for comprehensive legislative reform to tackle climate change, but then a Swedish girl scolded me, so now the world can burn. See what you libs made me do?

2020 may be a bad year but I think it might be better than 2120's going to be.

2120? Ha! At this rate, we will be lucky to make it until 2040, let alone 2120. Things are happening way faster than expected, and that is not a good thing.

Add to the list that bubonic plague is troubling the inner Mongolian area of Bayannur.
Viral diseases, infernos, muderous cops, earthquakes etc.

Ironically, this year will likely be hotter because of less pollution.

This spring there was 30 percent less air pollution thanks to global shutdowns. Instead of warming thanks to a greenhouse effect, we're seeing record temperatures because of fewer particles in the air absorbing solar energy and reflecting sunlight back into space.

Eh, I'm sure Russia will murder a few journalists and toss a few environmentalists out of windows; that'll solve the problem.

Well, a problem...

Nope. It's fake news. They only send disgraced hack losers to the Arctic. Obviously their reporting is untustworthy.

Ironically perhaps, I predict that the lack of co2 will be the root cause of the sterilization of this planet. We're definitely contributing now in a somewhat paradoxical way, but you can save this post and reflect upon it maybe 200 to 800 million years from now. But once it gets hot enough, we will actually run out of co2. And yes, cockroaches will probably be the last surviving animal species, so fark is good to go.

So, just buy into the narrative horror story the media is selling. Things will get better. That actually always have. I'm a cynic most days, but lean optimistic. We will get to a breaking point and collectively fix shiat.

They have an Arctic Circle in Siberia?  I know they used to be all over the place but I haven't seen one in years. The only one left in Washington is in Yakima.

Just because a man who draws fanart of Donald Trump as a muscular Olympian god also obsesses over spanking an underage girl, doesn't mean he's some sort of creep or something.

do you know what a tipping point is in terms of ecology? in terms of the carbon cycle? by the time "a breaking point" big enough for the majority of humans to care about occurs it is already too late to fix shiat......

It will be hilarious during this year's "Bring a snowball to Congress" day.  And since we're so good at dealing at a modern virus, let's see how we do when the melting permafrost releases an ancient one.

I assume he lives alone on some faux dude ranch or 'cabin' with four bedrooms and HVAC in the mountains of Colorado, because I cannot for the life of me imagine a world where Ben Garrison could go out in public without regularly getting socked in the jaw on general principle.

I remain convinced that Garrison recognizes a frothing flock of rubes ripe for the fleecing as well as the next guy.
