Yet the most amazing thing is what happens there during the winter months. The lake disappears and becomes solid ice. Simply amazing.
Thee is no global warming, or man made climate change as they like to call it now. It's all got to do with the sun and it comes and goes in cycles.
You are being so ignorant of the BIG PICTURE!
This is the first time I see a lake at the North Pole. All other melts I have ever seen of ice breaking up to show water between the ice cubes floating in the water.
If you look at my second post you can clearly see that more and more ice is melting. Over that span of time, the North Pole is much smaller now.
Once again, try to think of the implications of such a climate changing issue please.
Since about 1976 the areal extent of sea-ice in the Northern Hemisphere has varied about a constant climatological level but in 1972-1975 sea-ice extent was significantly less. In the Southern Hemisphere since about 1981, sea-ice extent has also varied about a constant level. Between 1973 and 1980 there were periods of several years when Southern Hemisphere sea-ice extent was either appreciably more than or less than that typical in the 1980s.

Doesn't matter If it is caused by the sun or man made, If the climate changes drastically we will have real life problems.
Floods, diseases and death, countless people displaced, the cost to the world economy.
People arguing If it is man made or not isn't the issue it's what may happen in the future to us all.

True, BUT this particular cycle has been greatly affected by all the chemical pollutants we've pumped into our atmosphere.
Yes, cooling and warming is natural, but when humans add to the recipe, its uncharted waters.
