On thin ice?
Can the recent increase in the Arctic ice be used to prove that global warming proponents are wrong? Or would any one making that suggesting be standing on thin ice? In the month of March you should get the maximum increase of ice. Since this current increase took place in such a short time, how much more will the ice increase during March? How thick will the ice be, and how does that compare to past thickness of ice. We would have to wait until September or October to know what is the minimum amount of this ice remains. To make any argument now that the new formation of ice is evidence of the cyclical nature of Arctic ice would be premature but we would have to wait and see what the ice level does this year.
