The whole reason Greenland was called Greenland, was because when the first Viking explorers went there, the place was GREEN!!! NOT WHITE, so  it looks like Greenland is going back to what it was over 1000 yrs ago! So the little Ice Age has ended!!!!!

I thought it was just the place they landed at that was green thus the name. They soon discovered the rest of the place was frozen.

Funny how many variations of the naming of Greenland have popped up in this thread, obviously I am the only one who could be possibly right. ;)

"The End of the World Has Begun"  such a panic-mongering title for a natural event, don't ya think?

Yup, but if you want people to read your thread...

The first line of the OP sorts the title out though ;)

There are way more simpler technologies like for example biodiesel (the technology exist it's just not exploited because it would hurt the wallets of few people which shall remain nameless) (heck like dubya's dad and his co-conspirator with whom I wouldn't go hunting, the bin ladin family of terrorists fame the saudis the quataris et few others).  Another way would be to limit the number of children per family, another way would be to stop buying the useless crap like 10 D photon plasma TV's, paying the kardashians, heck... I'm going to lunch because the list is too long and I would die of hunger before arriving half way through.

Bio-diesel has its own problems. It works as a technology but it means a huge amount of grain that could be used for food is being used to power cars. An huge amount. This is not something that is working towards being fixed - we can only grow a certain amount of grain.

And how would you limit the size of families the world over??

Biodiesel is made from sheat of wheat; corn; colza; algea but not from grain so actually it helps the planet and as far as population growth ;  Education for the poor!  Don't make kids you can't feed!  Another way is to stop giving money from the poor people of rich countries to the rich of poor countries, give them ... oh again Education

There is also more farmlands that can grow wheat.  The downside is there would be a wheat glut lowering prices and hurting farmers or wasting a lot of good wheat.  Of course we could export to other countries where there are food shortages.

If the "End of the World has Began" what I need to know, is when is is going to finish Ending,Because people have been saying this, before half of you( squabbling about Greenland),were born. The ice in the Arctic and Antarctic,freezes and melts every year,some years are worse some better than others.depending on a lot of factors like,ie:- Ocean Currents,Wind factors,Sun spots and a lot more.ONLY nature can answer the ice melt/freeze question,because weather "experts" have'nt a clue ,they just speculate like the rest of us...

(1) try your best, ............if that dont work.
(2) try your second best, ........if that dont work
(3) give up you aint gonna win

I like how they use the headline of 'unprecedented'.  That means it's never happened before.  But then in the very same study the paper quotes, they admit: "Goddard glaciologist Lora Koenig said that similar melting events occur about every 150 years, and this event is consistent with that schedule, citing the previous 1889 melt."

What blatant misinformation on their part.

I guess it would also have to be unprecedented that most of the 'unprecedented' warming has already stopped.  That makes two unprecedented events in one week.

Funny how I ran out all of the sudden and you sitting there looking (all so) innocent whistling dixie, Paracelse. But thank the chocolate gods I had some forgotten hidden reserves stored away. I think you're trying to bring about the Chocolate Apocalypse. *angels sing deep baritone in the background* So I got my one pyramidal eye on you my friend. Make no mistake.




You hinting at the possiblity of future ocean front property? I've got some of that future ocean front property myself in Arizona, just can't seem to convince anybody yet to buy it. Maybe if I put a large ditch, full of water, around it and claim that it's part of the Pacific Ocean I might get better results.



when the end comes, it will be more than impresive. it will be terrifying. gargantuanly terrifying.

Good I can't wait.  My back hurts, my hips bother me, I have bad knees, and now I have burning fungus on the bottoms of my feet.  It can't come soon enough to soot me!

I need a new body, or at least a new skeleton.  What I'd like is one of those duranium skeletons like the cyborgs on Terminator have.  Man that would be sweet.  I bet one of those things would never wear out.  I wonder if I'd be fully sexually functional?

back in the 80's if you spoke of climate change and greenhouse gasses etc ...
... then you'd be saying the place was going to freeze, not burn. 80s climate change fears were all about a new ice age, not global warming.

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

You may think you're cool, but you'll never be as cool as Peter Capaldi with an electric guitar, on a tank, playing the Doctor Who theme.

I'll be damn. You know I heard the exact same description from people who say they were abducted by aliens and got anal probed. To paraphase, their final thought, they said "it was the end of the world for them". *shivers*  Anyway, you might be on to something there.
