Bush Admin. hid evidence of global warming?

Graphic images that reveal the devastating impact of global warming in the Arctic have been released by the US military. The photographs, taken by spy satellites over the past decade, confirm that in recent years vast areas in high latitudes have lost their ice cover in summer months.

The pictures, kept secret by Washington during the presidency of George W Bush, were declassified by the White House last week. President Barack Obama is currently trying to galvanise Congress and the American public to take action to halt catastrophic climate change caused by rising levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.

  • One particularly striking set of images - selected from the 1,000 photographs released - includes views of the Alaskan port of Barrow. One, taken in July 2006, shows sea ice still nestling close to the shore. A second image shows that by the following July the coastal waters were entirely ice-free.

    The photographs demonstrate starkly how global warming is changing the Arctic. More than a million square kilometres of sea ice - a record loss - were missing in the summer of 2007 compared with the previous year.

    Nor has this loss shown any sign of recovery. Ice cover for 2008 was almost as bad as for 2007, and this year levels look equally sparse.

    These are one-metre resolution images, which give you a big picture of the summertime Arctic," said Thorsten Markus of Nasa's Goddard Space Flight Centre. "This is the main reason why we are so thrilled about it. One-metre resolution is the dimension that's been missing."

    Yeah, things like temperatures dropping and the ice cap actually growing over the past few years.

    You don't know that, you are not a scientist. You are only agreeing with that idea because it falls on your political side.

  • NASA's Goddard space flight center has been on board the alarmist bandwagon since it became headed by Gore adviser James Hansen who also happens to profit quite well from alarmism.

    No actually I did used to buy the global warming scam but there is way to much evidence that blows holes in the stupid theory. I could post peer reviewed proof for hours on studies not to mention the threats and fraud to keep people misinformed.

  • There is NO such thing as global warming, people. It's a lie. The earth's climates go in cycles.
