Melting Arctic Sea Ice: Bad News for Iran

Science Daily — Arctic sea ice is melting at a significantly faster rate than projected by even the most advanced computer models, a new study concludes. The research, by scientists at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) and the University of Colorado’s National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC), shows that the Arctic’s ice cover is retreating more rapidly than estimated by any of the 18 computer models used by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) in preparing its 2007 assessment. …

“While the ice is disappearing faster than the computer models indicate, both observations and the models point in the same direction: the Arctic is losing ice at an increasingly rapid pace and the impact of greenhouse gases is growing,” says NCAR scientist Marika Holland, one of the study’s co-authors.

In order to stop the devastating effects of rampaging global warming, as leaders of the Free world, we have only one choice: we must nuke Iran. In a study published last year, a scientific consensus stated that the only sure way to stop global warming was a nuclear war.

“With the exchange of 100 15-kiloton weapons as posed in this scenario, the estimated quantities of smoke generated could lead to global climate anomalies exceeding any changes experienced in recorded history,” Robock said. And that’s just 0.03 percent of the total explosive power of the current world nuclear arsenal.”

The climate effects of particulate matter are of increasing interest to climate scientists. Some researchers have postulated that a similar release of sulfate aerosols into the atmosphere could be used in a worst-case scenario to block global warming. However no one is advocating nuclear war as a practical solution to global warming. source

This report was issued, however, before the Arctic Sea Ice study was completed.

Dear Mr. President, for the good of the planet, and to stop the deadly menace of global warming in its tracks, Iran has gotta go. /s

  1. While I’m all for global warming, you make a very persuasive case, Nuke.

  2. a slightly less nuke-hugging view. What if the melting ice let the northernmost countries the opportunity to develope the vast energysupplies lying under the ice-cover, leaving Iran w oil no-one ask for any longer?

  3. well, that would work, too.
