Deny All You Want

These observations I find to be the most dramatic and disturbing than ever before.

"In Greenland, the melt was so severe that it took away the very instruments we used to measure the ice sheet," Scambos added. "Many instruments were melted out and toppled over because melt proceeded to a level we have never seen before."

 "Climate change is taking place before our eyes and will continue to do so as a result of the concentrations of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, which ... again reached new records."

The polar ice sheets of Antarctica and Greenland are now melting three times faster than in the 1990s, according to a study released Thursday and co-authored by a Boulder scientist.

We can't get this back. It's just too late and we can't even have an intelligent conversation about this issue.

  3. Over 40% of Americans believe that evolution is a myth and that the Earth was created less than 10,000 years ago.

    I don't know how anyone can have a conversation about science with them. They are immune to evidence.
