      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

An alarming trend is...

Recommended Posts

more arctic sea ice. according to USA Today

 

Crucial Arctic sea ice this summer shrank to its second lowest level on record, continuing an alarming trend, scientists said Tuesday.

 

The ice covered 1.74 million square miles on Friday, marking a low point for this summer, according to NASA and the National Snow and Ice Data Center in Boulder, Colo. Last summer, the sea ice covered only 1.59 million square miles, the lowest since record-keeping began in 1979

 

PROOF!!!!11`

 

right, you can say that two years in a row don't make a significant trend in a 30 year study. well, how significant is 30 years in a world that is, for argument's sake, more than 6000 years old?

 

at any rate - the alarmists should do a better job of slanting their data.

yes it is alarming, but using USA today as your primary fact source can be questioned. They are focused on general news for the general public. They are not really focused on science.
