Climate Changer Deniers...Here is more for you to think about. By Geniusofdespair

Speaking of the Arctic Ice:

For those who happen to be standing, please sit down to handle a knuckle sandwich:

“It is polar night in the Arctic—a darkness that lasts from early October to early March. Temperatures rarely escape freezing in that darkness, averaging -30° F until the light begins to return in spring. Right now, however, temperatures across much of the Arctic are 36 degrees F above normal. Large areas are well above freezing. And instead of rapidly expanding, sea ice extent is in decline. Taken together, this is not unusual. It’s unheard of.”

20 degrees Celsius is 68 degrees Fahrenheit (so 68 degrees milder than normal)

From the Siberian Times 11/21:

The Arctic district of Verkhoyansk, one of the coldest inhabited places in the world, recorded a temperature of 19.2C on 18 November, some 19C above average.

The district is in Yakutia, also known as the Sakha Republic, and in parts of the Arctic north of this region temperatures are even more surprising.

In the village of Olenek on the same day weathermen recorded minus 5.1C, a record warm. In the remote port of Tiksi, it was only minus 3C.

In Chukotka, on the Arctic shore, a November record was registered of a remarkable 4C, with a daily average of 20C milder than usual.

With a little bit of luck, we will still have a complete repugnican administration in power, when the methane in the north and Siberia starts to escape like a giant fart.
Will be interesting to see how that will be sold like a giant business opportunity then.
