Canada’s Arctic in danger

A record loss of sea ice in the Arctic this summer has convinced scientists that the northern hemisphere may have crossed a critical threshold beyond which the climate may never recover. Scientists fear that the Arctic has now entered an irreversible phase of warming which will accelerate the loss of the polar sea ice that has helped to keep the climate stable for thousands of years.

The Bush Administration responded by saying that reduced ice means less space for terrorists to hide, and that anyone who wants more ice hates freedom.
