PRESIDENT OBAMA: We'll restore science to its rightful place.
VOICE: A series dedicated to President Obama's passion for everything science.
GLENN: That's right, you've heard it a million times, the Arctic sea is melting. All the extra water is going to raise sea levels 20 feet, putting city after city underwater. They said it this weekend. This weekend with President Obama, the islands are going to disappear. Panic, everyone! Polar bears, where are they going to vacation? It's all because of you, especially if you're a hate monger in Boston. You remember this from Barack Obama?
PRESIDENT OBAMA: As we speak, cars in Boston and factories in Beijing are melting the ice caps in the Arctic, shrinking coastlines in the Atlantic and bringing drought to farms from Kansas to Kenya.
GLENN: Yeah. If we don't do something to stop the human automobile atrocities, the melting in the Arctic sea ice, I mean, all those fancy vacations that you've been taking in Bangladesh, they're history, let me tell you that right now. The crowd in Berlin, they cheered. But apparently the crowd back home didn't, at least not as much as they used to. Rasmussen poll shows a drastic decline in people who believe that global warming and things like the Arctic sea ice melting are man's fault. The decline started as soon as Obama was the nominee. It was nearly half of Americans believing that it was manmade. Now it is 1/3 of Americans that believe it is manmade. But that's not going to stop the new regulations. Global cap and trade is coming. But could it be for those people who have decided, well, no, wait a minute; I don't think I believe in that, could it be that they just read the news and that's what's happening? Like this story from the Australian, quote: Antarctic ice is growing, not melting away. Ice is expanding in much of Antarctica, contrary to the widespread public belief that global warming is melting the Continental icecap. The results of ice core drilling and sea ice monitoring indicate there is no large scale melting of ice over most of Antarctica. Australian and Arctic division glaciology, the head there Ian Allison said sea ice losses in Western Antarctica over the past 30 years have been more than offset by increases in just one sector of East Antarctica. Sea ice conditions have remained stable in Antarctica generally, said Dr. Allison. "But Glenn, it's the west sea ice that's melting. You are talking about the east." Yeah, yeah, I know, I know, but as the good scientist said and who can dispute a scientist unless they say something contrary to Al Gore the gains in the east are four times the size of the losses in the west. It makes up for it. Things are stable. "Yeah, but what fun is stable?" I mean, how are we ever going to get cap and trade with reports like stable?
And finally I just have to point out that we are some pretty crafty polluters. I mean, we are able to make our pollution drift only to the relatively small west side of Antarctica instead of the whole thing. It's almost like the ocean temperatures or the winds have something to do with it. It's weird. Strikes me as odd that the only spot where a few chunks have fallen off which, by the way, Allison said is not unusual, is caused by global warming. But the ice is increasing everywhere else in Antarctica. Too bad. The polar bears live there. Oh, I forgot, what am I doing? I'm not a scientist. I'm just one of those flat Earth hating red staters clinging to my Bible and my gun!
