The Arctic is hotter than it's been in 2,000 years and what's
startling is - it should be cooling because of differences in the
Earth's orbit that result in the region getting less direct sun.

Otto-Bliesner, a National Center for Atmospheric Research scientist and
co-author of this new study study of Arctic temperatures published in
Friday's edition of the journal Science says "If it hadn't been for the
increase in human-produced greenhouse gases, summer temperatures in the
Arctic should have cooled gradually over the last century,"

And with
the melting of land-based ice, such as the massive Greenland ice cap,
sea levels could rise across the world, threatening millions who live
in coastal cities.

The next big chance and maybe our last chance will
come in Copenhagen in December. Let your elected Reps know the US needs
to work hard to make the Copenhagen global warming meeting successful.
How hot is it?
