    Arctic summers ice-free 'by 2013'


    Scientists in the US have presented one of the most dramatic forecasts yet for the disappearance of Arctic sea ice.

    Their latest modelling studies indicate northern polar waters could be ice-free in summers within just 5-6 years.

    Professor Wieslaw Maslowski told an American Geophysical Union meeting that previous projections had underestimated the processes now driving ice loss.

    Summer melting this year reduced the ice cover to 4.13 million sq km, the smallest ever extent in modern times.

    Remarkably, this stunning low point was not even incorporated into the model runs of Professor Maslowski and his team, which used data sets from 1979 to 2004 to constrain their future projections.

    And that prediction turned out like the rest of them have. I guess we really do have a war between science and religion. Science charlatans keep predicting the end of the world through Global Warming and the Religious charlatans predicting the Apocalypse and the Rapture. The Battle of the Apocalypses.
    Never argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level then beat you with experience.

    Meanwhile the Polar Bears continue to lounge around the caps and the Penguins all huddle together to stay warm.

    Some penguins break from huddling to offer free raft-inspections.
