Today, I read an article on Foxnews.com that explains the possibility that the polar icecap at the north pole may completely melt this year. In the article, they quote a “Dr Mark Serreze” in Boulder, CO. He says,”“From the viewpoint of science, the North Pole is just another point on the globe, but symbolically it is hugely important. There is supposed to be ice at the North Pole, not open water.”
Correct me if I’m wrong, but what does symbolism have to do with science? There’s supposed to be ice at the north pole? Why? So Santa’s Workshop isn’t flooded? Come on, get realistic. If you ask the average American, Iceland has snow on the ground 12 months out of the year (if they have even heard of Iceland, that is).
Global Warming is not a scientific fact, it’s a doctrine in the Church of Environmentalism. If you don’t place your faith in the doctrine that man is destroying the earth with his “carbon footprints,” then you are a heretic, and denounced. What ever happened to the free exchange of ideas? Isn’t that what science is all about? Finding the truth? The scientific method is defined by Merriam Webster as, “principles and procedures for the systematic pursuit of knowledge involving the recognition and formulation of a problem, the collection of data through observation and experiment, and the formulation and testing of hypotheses.
In case you are afraid that the ice is melting forever, the first line of the article allays those fears: “If predictions hold true, the situation presents a “unique” prospect of sailing in open waters at the North Pole before the region begins to cool in September.“ The ice will re-form. God’s plan for the Earth will continue, no matter what Algore says.
Anthropogenic Global Warming is a hypothesis. Nothing more.
