Global Warming

A matter of perspective

Dave In Texas notes how walrus have responded to a changing environment:
Walrus (yes, singular AND plural!) decide to cope with climate adjustments, and follow food.
I find this part of the AP story ridiculous:
According to the National Snow and Ice Data Center at the University of Colorado at Boulder, September sea ice was 39 percent below the long-term average from 1979 to 2000. Sea ice cover is in a downward spiral and may have passed the point of no return, with a possible ice-free Arctic Ocean by summer 2030, senior scientist Mark Serreze said.
The earth is roughly 4.5 billion years old, and somebody thinks that, in this context, 21 years is long term? Yikes.

(UPDATE: Corrected my spelling mistake.)
