    You have to be one of the most entertaining hubbers, keeping abreast of science. Good one!

    I do all of them, and no, it's not that hard.

    If you do all that stuff, why on earth do you spend your spare time trying to change peoples minds on climate change, trying to get us to believe you and not the vast, vast majority of scientists in the world. It makes no sense....not sure why that surprises me!

    Dr John Cook perfectly sums up my objections to this sub par reporting.

    "COOK: The article is actually quoting from a UK tabloid, rather than quoting climate scientists or the actual IPCC report."

    http://www.radioaustralia.net.au/int...c-leak/1191262

    (Please note that I'm quoting an actual source and allowing you the chance to check it out for yourself rather than regurgitating what was said in the most l33t news source in the UK.)



    On a side note, I can't find any of those reports from the US media; the only publication leaking at present is The Daily Mail (and The Australian). Anyone wanna help a girl out with links?

    Maybe if the snowshoe hare moved toward the arctic, it would find a great deal of more white stuff to blend into
    The arctic ice has, afterall, grew by 60% in the last year. There is an inconvenient truth.

    And I believe you mean they should head towards the Antarctic.

    http://www.nasa.gov/topics/earth/fea...rctic-ice.html

    But alas, still not good news:

    '"There's been an overall increase in the sea ice cover in the Antarctic, which is the opposite of what is happening in the Arctic,” said lead author Claire Parkinson, a climate scientist with NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, Md. "However, this growth rate is not nearly as large as the decrease in the Arctic.”'

    You are quoting John Cook (a commentator on the article). I was quoting David Rose (the author of the article). Is your source better?

    US article?
