Keep Your Mind Open

Mark the following story up to why you should keep your mind open. We keep hearing the complete obviousness of anthropogenic global warming trend, and how it's obvious that this is a horrible thing that we need to make immediate and major sacrifices for the betterment of Mother Earth. Then I read this:

Sea Ice May Be on Increase in the Antarctic A new NASA-funded study finds that predicted increases in precipitation due to warmer air temperatures from greenhouse gas emissions may actually increase sea ice volume in the AntarcticÂ?s Southern Ocean. This adds new evidence of potential asymmetry between the two poles, and may be an indication that climate change processes may have different impact on different areas of the globe.

"Most people have heard of climate change and how rising air temperatures are melting glaciers and sea ice in the Arctic," said Dylan C. Powell, co-author of the paper and a doctoral candidate at the University of Maryland-Baltimore County. "However, findings from our simulations suggest a counterintuitive phenomenon. Some of the melt in the Arctic may be offset by increases in sea ice volume in the Antarctic."

Read the whole thing. This is just one of those pieces that underlines that we don't really know what's happening, why it's happening, and what the positive or negative effects are going to be from said unknown. And yet, even with all these unknowns, the powers-that-be on the American Left, the U.N., and the European elite are pushing us to make drastic changes to our lifestyle.

Touching on these unknowns is the latest by Michael Crichton, State of Fear, which I've written about before here.
