I just heard on the radio that the Polar Ice Caps are not contracting (over the past 3 years) and are in fact GROWING - at an alarming rate.
I'm on the way out the door but it was about how certain places in the Northern US should not plant anything until mid-June (instead of the usual mid-May) because the cold air from the arctic is still hanging over Canada and will be dropping down onto the Northern states (eastern I believe) later than usual because it's staying colder for longer. So it said not to bother planting anything that is sensitive to frost until the middle of June... then went on to list reports coming out about the size of the Polar Ice Caps, and a discussion about an approaching Ice Age (that we are in what's called an Inter-Glacial Period right now).
But that's all I could gleen while rushing around, so maybe I can find an update later. Meanwhile, I'm going to go spew some more emissions into the atmosphere because it sounds to me like we SHOULD be trying to warm up the planet, dont-cha think?
