    Global warming is a hoax

    A chunk of ice shelf nearly the size of Manhattan has broken away from Ellesmere Island in Canada's northern Arctic, another dramatic indication of how warmer temperatures are changing the polar frontier, scientists said Wednesday.
    Mueller also said that two large sections of ice detached from the Serson Ice Shelf, shrinking that ice feature by 47 square miles or 60 percent and that the Ward Hunt Ice Shelf has also continued to break up, losing an additional eight square miles.

    Mueller reported last month that seven square miles of the 170-square-mile and 130-feet-thick Ward Hunt shelf had broken off.

    This comes on the heels of unusual cracks in a northern Greenland glacier, rapid melting of a southern Greenland glacier, and a near record loss for Arctic sea ice this summer. And earlier this year a 160-square mile chunk of an Antarctic ice shelf disintegrated.
    "These changes are irreversible under the present climate and indicate that the environmental conditions that have kept these ice shelves in balance for thousands of years are no longer present," said Mueller.

    During the last century, when ice shelves would break off, thick sea ice would eventually reform in their place.

    "But today, warmer temperatures and a changing climate means there's no hope for regrowth. A scary scenario," said Mueller.

    It's not that so many now believe it's a hoax..as much as it is, that there's still a faction lead by big oil money, who believe that the ticket is still out on if man is contributing to it.


    There are some scientists who now believe that we have less than 10 years to arrest our green house gases before the burg hits New York.
