    Yes, with a finite supply of oil down below that can be pumped out. Why the race to use it up?

    Exactly what they’re looking for in the arctic, actually. Antarctica is also a continent, not ice flows, and while U.N. treaty protects it for now, oil companies, and other mineral companies, still want access.

    If we lose to much ice on the north pole will the earth become unstable and start shaking?

    New report that global temps. Stopped rising 16 years ago, as emissions continued to rise. Yet the hoax continues.

    In last week’s New York Times, David Brooks (criticizing President Obama’s squandering money on renewable energy) pointed out that we have an unlimited supply of fossil fuel. Do you want to fire those hard-working American dinosaurs who are producing more fossil fuel than we consume every year?

    I have a feeling the impoverished socialist country of Greenland will return to its colony status very soon. Just a gut feeling.

    “As of October 15, sea ice extent stood at 5.18 million square kilometers (2.00 million square miles). This is 3.49 million square kilometers (1.35 million square miles) below the 1979 to 2000 mean for this time of year and 70,000 square kilometers (27,000 square miles) below the same date in 2007. Although it is still at record low levels, extent is climbing fast.” -National Snow and Ice Data Center.

    Uhm… You do know Greenland isn’t actually “free” atm, and any attempts to move in from other countries would be going against Denmark (which is same reason they can lay claim to the north pole).

    Well, we do have to do something with all those fat democrats.

    I love the conservative wackos posting here that global temps stopped rising 16 years ago! Facts are completely irrelevant to their fantasy world. Note to the clueless: 2012 so far is the hottest year on record. That doesn’t happen without temperatures rising. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Instrumental_temperature_record

    It is really sad that a magazine like Forbes misses the point of a scientific study. The growing ice in Antarctica is part of a bigger problem. The Ozone hole over Antarcica is causing a cooling effect in that area, the melting ice in the Arctic is putting more moisture into the air, hence the Antarctic ice is growing at an unstable rate. It is actually further proof of an unstable environment aggravated by human activity.
    Long term consequences – as ocean temperatures begin to rise, larger ice flows break off from the Antarctic ice shelf. If the ozone hole grows again (it began to shrink, but has since remained about the size of North America), possible radical climate changes in the southern hemisphere could begin drying out the rainforests.
    Please stop using articles that cherry pick sentences out of scientific research, just read the actual research.

    Initially I wanted to make fun of you, but thinking about it… I’m not sure if it would change much, the earth does “wobble” quite a bit anyway (2.3° right now), and has been since it’s formation (changing in long cycles), so it probably would be no biggie. The loss in albedo on the other hand really has me concerned…

    Intelligent people, save your breath; the illiterati will not be embracing climate change until they are also embracing their life preservers.

    RUSSIA is drilling and mining there. There’s no such thung as man caused climate change.

    Don’t forget. It’s very important that we all drive oversized trucks. It’s the American way.
