4. Were these US government agencies? If so, how did this get by Bushco?
Living here in Southwest Michigan I have experienced lake-effect snow first hand.

For those that are unaware of the phenomena, let me give a simple explanation. When frigid winds blow across the warmer waters of Lake Michigan they pick up moisture from the lake and subsequently deposit it in the form of snow (sometimes rain), in areas usually near the shoreline.

The reason I mention this is that as the lake freezes over in the winter, lake effect snow become less frequent and significant. What we have in the Arctic is just the opposite, areas that would normally be covered in ice, will then be open water and that will in of itself will change climate of the Arctic regions.
