My post was, for the most part, a dart thrown at the apparent hypocrisy of our govt regarding climate change and actions proposed in the arctic region. We read pronouncements regarding AGW and the loss of ice in the arctic region, and then we read about the need for ice breakers. Considering the albedo effect, one has to wonder how serious Obamer is about AGW when he turns around and proposes breaking up the ice that reflects so much heat away from the earth. (google albedo effect).
This is hypocrisy at it's finest...and most people do not have a freakin clue.

First your claim man's impact on the climate is insignificant, now you act like a handful of icebreakers will affect the albedo levels of the arctic ice significantly?
Who are you calling a hypocrite?
IF Obama believes that AGW is the greatest threat blah blah blah...
Then why would he want to REDUCE the albedo by destroying what is left of the ice in the arctic?
Ice and snow are the best reflectors, affecting climate, that the earth has so to speak.
So why would an AGW activist support breaking up any ice formations?
