If you think this is evidence against mans impact on the climate then you have some studying to do. Just because they refer to the problem as global warming does not mean that every square inch of the planet will get warmer or that all the changes will be an increase in temp. A better phrase that I have seen is global weirding, the weather is going to get weird.

the global warming/cooling flipped every 5-7 years or so since the 60's
its only since the crazy ass green brigade jumped all over it and rammed it down the goverments throats
(as no one payed attention to save the rain forests)
and then they (the goverment) found a way to use it for them selves and slow down oil/gas usage a little to make it last longer that any of us really heard about it (well except the occasional rare science program or 5 minute news flash)
I just had a hunter stay at the motel who was from Alaska. He was telling me that he didn't understand what all the talk was about with global warming as things are cold and nothing appears to be drastically different. He didn't think it was warming.

Ok but what about the national healt care 70% of Americans ( and others) wants that they can't get despite persistent appeals? Why have the 'greens' been so succesful; who should we be talking to 'get things done'? As always it's easy to get TPTB to cooperate when they were allready planning to do something....
Summer temperatures, which were some 3 degrees below average, allowed record levels of winter snow to remain much longer, leading to the increase in glacial mass.
Now, how did the oceans get warmer in the Arctic? We have no data suggesting a link to oceanic current changes which could cause this. But we do have data on undersea volcanic activity in the area. Volcanoes emit superheated gas and molten lava (melted rock!). These things are hot. Hot stuff makes the water hotter. Hotter water melts ice in the water.

The North Pole has melted for the first time.
As stated in a previous post in page 1,the north pole is made up of sea ice,therefore it constantly grows and shrinks on a regular basis.
