35. glad the news about this is getting out but
I don't think it comes as a shock to scientists. There are and have been many websites out of climate science departments detailing, graphing and discussing this decline in multi-year ice.

The shock to scientists is the sorry fact people can't hear them anymore behind the blizzard of lies coming from the PR industry.

It took what forty years to overcome the tobacco lobby after the proof cigarettes cause cancer and are addictive became indisputable in the 1950s. Within a year of that most doctors quit smoking, but sufferagettes marched in the Macy's parade proudly waving smoking cancer sticks.

Human cancer is one thing. Complete biosphere collapse is another. We don't have forty years for people to dimly come around, for whistleblowers to have their lives destroyed trying to expose the massively powerful extractive industry multinationals funding this convenient deception.

We have to smash through now. I can understand the urgency of the scientists trying to hide the noise in their data so it couldn't be used to create even more manufactured doubt. Trillions of lives (counting all the non-humans in peril too) are at stake.

Please please please Obama administration make this your top priority as soon as health care is done. The fate of the world literally hinges on this. Otherwise, we'll have to take to the streets and destroy the infrastructure of the PR industry. Actually, if you wouldn't mind doing that for us, it would be a great jobs program and would keep a lot of people employed for a very long time.
