I'm sure everyone's heard of the claim that the arctic ice is melting too fast because of global warming.
A new study proves differently:
In short, it's a cycle, not a catastrophe.
From 2002 to 2006, scientists and researchers from NASA and the University of Washington's Polar Science Center at the Applied Physics Laboratory observed a meaningful ongoing reversal in Arctic Ocean circulation. The cause is atmospheric circulation changes that vary in decade-long periods and the effect is, well, let the scientist who led the study explain it:
"Our study confirms many changes seen in upper Arctic Ocean circulation in the 1990s were mostly decadal in nature, rather than trends caused by global warming," said the University of Washington's James Morison.
I won't hold my breath waiting for a retraction from High Priest Algore, tho.
