This is what global warming looks like
7 SEP 2011 3:52 PM
Alun Hubbard, a researcher at Aberystwyth University's Center for Glaciology in Wales, recently returned from Greenland's Petermann Glacier. Polar scientists last photographed the glacier, located in the northwest corner of the country, in the summer of 2009. They went back this summer to see how much ice it has lost in just the last two years, and the results were dramatic.

"Although I knew what to expect in terms of ice loss from satellite imagery, I was still completely unprepared for the gob-smacking scale of the breakup, which rendered me speechless," Hubbard said in response to the images. Below, you can see the original shots from 2009 beside those taken this summer:

3. Those images are so photoshopped!
I mean look! A two year old could see those were photoshopped! Global warming doesn't exist, there's more ice out there than WMDs in Iraq! We're having UNSEASONABLY COLD TEMPS right now! If that's not evidence that global warming is a myth, I don't know what is! Argle bargle fooferahhhh. Moofle boofle awaguuahhhh.

...

Sorry, I blacked out or a second, what did I miss?
