RT Headline: Arctic ice shrinks to record lows, prompting climate change fears

Arctic sea ice shrinkage, devastating droughts, floods and storms all reached new extremes in 2012, said the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) on Monday at a meeting in the Kenyan capital, Nairobi, following an annual review. All these disasters appear to be related to accelerating climate change on our planet. In the last year, Arctic ice covered a record low of 3.4 million sq. km, 18 per cent lower than in 2007, and 50 per cent below averages in the 1980s and ‘90s. The Arctic is considered an indicator for climate change events globally, and scientists worry these concerns are not being addressed in an urgent manner. Furthermore, countries are increasingly vying for precious fossil fuels underneath the ice caps – which initially fueled the melting of ice to begin with and threatens to release even greater amounts of greenhouse gases. The Nairobi meeting will run until Friday, and follows the UN’s Rio+20 talks of last June, continuing to stress the need for increasing UNEP efforts in the green economy.

  3. “Arctic sea ice shrinkage, devastating droughts, floods and storms all reached new extremes in 2012, said the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) on Monday at a meeting in the Kenyan capital, Nairobi, following an annual review.” This is nothing more than propaganda spin from the U.N. Let’s see, now…just HOW long has it been that they have been desperate to make sure that Agenda 21 comes to fruition? They would just love to see us stacked and packed in those tiny black areas across the country. If you don’t know what I mean, just go to any search engine and type in “Agenda 21 maps” in the image section. I believe this just demonstrates more of the cabal’s last-ditch attempts at control through fear.

    And yet, antarctic ice has been increasing as much or more as arctic ice has been melting. There has been no global warming for the past 16 years.

    The 2 things that have the biggest impact on earth’s surface temperature are 1) the massive
    amounts of poisonous aerosols dispersed in our skies by the U.S. Air Force via chemtrails and
    2) the activity of the sun, which is evolving from a yellow star into a white star.

    The nasty bankster carbon tax meme based on the lie of global warming is dead.
