According to media reports, climate scientists at the National Snow and Ice Data Center in Boulder, Colorado have been placing informal bets on the future of the North Pole. It seems the odds have been set at 50/50 for Santa and his elves to have to start treading water in September, as global warming continues to melt Arctic ice.
Already last September, the fabled Northwest Passage was opened up in Arctic ice.
Now me, well even when its sad that the ice is melting cycle or no I can not wait to see the treasures that may be hidden under all that ice.

OK, beside the gore and global warming bashing not matter who is lying or who is reaping profits, this is going to affect the entire world.
This story is being circulated in order to produce fear and promote the global warming agenda.
"It has never occurred before in the past," NASA senior research scientist Josefino Comiso said in a phone interview. "It is alarming. ... This winter ice provides the kind of evidence that it is indeed associated with the greenhouse effect."
Scientists and climate models have long predicted a drop in winter sea ice, but it has been slow to happen. Skeptics of global warming have pointed to the lack of melting ice as a flaw in global-warming theory.
The latest findings are "coming more in line with what we expected to find," said Mark Serreze, a senior research scientist at the National Snow and Ice Data Center in Boulder, Colo. "We're starting to see a much more coherent and firm picture occurring."
"I hate to say we told you so, but we told you so," he said.
