NASA Finds Arctic Replenished Very Little Thick Sea Ice in 2005

A new NASA study has found that in 2005 the Arctic replaced very little of the thick sea ice it normally loses and replenishes each year. Replenishment of this thick, perennial sea ice each year is essential to the maintenance and stability of the Arctic summer ice cover.

The findings complement a NASA study released in fall 2006 that found a 14-percent drop in this perennial ice between 2004 and 2005. The lack of replenishment suggests that the decline may continue in the near future.
Recent studies indicate Arctic perennial ice is declining seven to 10 percent each decade.

I guess now somebody has to go pull Senator Inhofes head out of his own ass long enough to give him the bad news that NASA must be in on that “Global Warming Hoax” too.
