Yes...so many Canadian satellite photos....an unbelievable amount of Canadian satellite photos.

Yeah if you just google canada space agency you can see some.

What you need to know is that you need to get your facts right. There will always be snow falling and ice forming somewhere on earth just in case you are not aware of this fact. Far left liberals like yourself love eating up all that alarmist stuff, and then try to spread it around too others who you hope are gullible enough to listen to your nonsense about the sky is falling in. Quickly, get under cover somewhere. Ya, troll, not better get under that bridge. :D

Snow is just rain falling when the temperature is below freezing. It will be snow whether it is -1 or -50. Like he said, do some research.

Wow, aren't you a whiz. Dah. You have to stop trying to show people here that you think you know something.

So you don't think -1 is warmer than -50?

Uhmm, which is warmer now? -1 or -50?  Gee, let me think about that one, will you? I am trying to figure as to whether this is a liberal trick question or not. :rolleyes:

Any temperature below 70 degrees is cold. I think that if all the worlds temperatures were around 80 degrees during the day time, and 70 degrees during the night time and all year long that would be perfect for me. I hate snow. It's cold. I would rather swim in the Carribean waters rather than the Arctic waters. :)

Still working in Farhenheit i see.  So if the average temperature at 50N was 80 degrees, how hot do you think your Caribbean waters would be? The earth is  not flat, it is a sphere, its axis is tilted and it orbits the sun.

Yup, the one and only true way of telling the temperature. 80 degrees Fahrenheit sounds a lot better than 25 degrees Celsius. We should never have switched unless America did. I believe that we do more business with America rather than the rest of the world, and we should have kept our Imperial measurement system. But thanks to those liberals once again they screwed things up for Canada and Canadians. There is not much left of the old Canada that I use to know when I was growing up. Today, I feel like I am living in some foreign metric country. 

I don't know how hot the Caribbean waters would get? How hot do you think they would get? As far as I know, the waters around the equator are not boiling hot as yet. And the temperatures around the equator can get quite hot in certain places. Ever tried boiled Tuna?  :D

You are a fragile body that can only exist in a narrow temperature range. The health of the planet does not revolve around what you find comfortable.

So sad because if it did we would be all living in a nice warm comfortable climate. 

The temperature should be in the range of 75 - 95 degrees F for humans to survive comfortably without clothing. When humans decided to move to colder climates they now had to find something to wear to keep from freezing. Was there a Walmart back then? Just asking.

And  man oh man have I been to both sides of that range! From Cape Parry in January to Juba within 5 days tests the limits of at least this old body.

Climate change study cancelled due to Climate change: not enough ice.

http://glbn.ca/W8wXy2

Try again... it was because of too much ice.

“Considering the severe ice conditions and the increasing demand for Search And Rescue operations (SAR) and ice escort, we decided to cancel the BaySys mission. A second week of delay meant our research objectives just could not be safely achieved – the challenge for us all was that the marine ice hazards were exceedingly difficult for the maritime industry, the CCG, and science,” says Dr. David Barber, Expedition Chief Scientist and BaySys Scientific Lead.

The wrong ice in the wrong place is what it boils down to, (pardon that expression) but due to global warming. The Carnival Cruise ships should be able to proceed apace once again.

Well maybe you can get a job on one of those ships. Getting out of mom's basement for a few months might be good, I'm sure she'd appreciate it. Watch out for them icebergs, they're on the rise!

She might if she hadn't have died 27 years ago. Yes iceberg alley will be filling up around now as it always does. Now if we could just find that 800,000sq. km. of ice we're missing.

Sorry to hear that. Last time you said it was 8,000 km. I'll just assume you misspoke.

Anyway evidence shows the ice is coming back, both arctic and antarctic. It has something to do with cooler summers, and wasn't covered in the computer model.
It seems there is a self-regulating process taking place. http://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-33594654

Get some sleep.

Read the article. It was too little ice. The thinness of the ice allowed winds to blow it much farther south than usual.

I read the article this morning, and if you read the quote, it's obvious they could not go there because there is too much ice. You have the link, and the quote. The rest is up to you, I can help no further.

Dr. David Barber, who was heading the research project, said warming temperatures have made the ice in the high Arctic thinner. When buffeted by storms and high winds, the ice can move much more freely and travels south on ocean currents.

Sure it does, because he knows what he`s talking about.

There is so much talk about the carbon footprint that we in the western world leave behind. Even though I live in Finland which probably has one of the highest carbon footprint per capita as very existence here consumes resources I refuse to be the main culprit for my countrymen's sins in the destruction of the planet as I don't have kids, I don't own a car and I don't fly around the world in pointless journeys. (I have only flown once in my lifetime and that will be last flight of mine).

I had never heard of Camp Century but I find it's a very interesting installation the US built in Greenland during the cold was as a place to house ballistic missiles. Now it turns out global warming is threatening to uncover some nasty stuff the US and Norway hoped would be buried in the ice forever.

 

https://www.smithsonianmag.com/science-nature/radioactive-cold-war-military-base-will-soon-emerge-greenlands-melting-ice-180960036/

Climate change could uncover the toxic and radioactive waste left behind at Camp Century as early as 2090, reports a new study published yesterday in the journal Geophysical Research Letters. The 115 feet of snow and ice now covering the Cold War-era base is already melting faster than it can be replaced, a prospect the military likely hadn’t dreamed of at the time. The study’s authors warn that the soon-to-be-uncovered waste could become a political minefield and foreshadow future international conflicts as climate change reshapes Earth.

Wow...a whole 0.75° C....we're all gonna die !

As Chretien said without Kyoto people will start dying by 2029. Maybe a side benefit is that no one will die during the promised 30 year period.

And the latest reports on this subject show the temperature at the north pole is 50 degrees F above normal currently, and has been averaging between 20-30 degrees above normal for the last 4 of 5 years and of course great swaths of sea ice are gone so the warming will likely intensify without the reflectivity of that ice.
