Santa can move to Ohio; we have plenty of deer, and the people are cold as ice

Seriously, do you believe that? This kind of change does not occur over a few years - but over several thousands of years. Remember the nutty professor who made all types of predictions with regards to overpopulation? This was in the 1970s.

He called for worldwide famine and said that England will not exist in the year 2000.

Come on Mr Borgman, you are smarter than this.

obviously it's out of the scope of the interest of the president since his democratic archrival has picked up the cause

Jim, I would have pushed back the year more for accuracy reasons, but otherwise, well done. As a good citizen, and a scientist, it is important to assess what these climate change reports are actually stating. Technology must focus upon resource conservation, but fear is something we need to leave to FOX News and Big Bear O'Reilly.

Interesting treatment of the thought bubble. Are those supposed to resemble snowballs?

Bravo.

Greenhouse gases may very well be the precipative cause of weather pattern changes over the entire planet...no doubt there's less ice and hotter year-round temperatures.
I'm no scientific phenom but over the last fifty or sixty years there has been a gargantuan amount of underground thermonuclear testing around the globe of nuclear bombs. An astronomical amount of mega-ton devices and all of the energy they contained released into the Earth.
Could these events create enough of a "push" to alter the axis ever-so-slightly as to mitigate the normal tilting of the globe so that a full winter tangent is no longer capable?
MIT and CalTechPoli...what's your take?

wait a minute, that's biased! what about UC?? what are you saying, our act scores aren't high enough?? by the way, we're the ones designing your jet engines...

I could see santa in a ferrari, it could happen...I hope he leaves me one, too!

santa should take away the toys from all the people causing global warming.

you know, that's about the life expectancy in this country:

Tragedy on Hueston Street

A 12-year-old boy in Hamilton today became the 10th Ohio child to die in a fire in less than a month, fire officials say.

High in the north pole this weekend...-6 degrees

Because I have no life, I thought I'd look at the highs and average temperatures from Barrow, AK on Jan 1 from 1945 til now and see what a simple trendline shows in regards to warming.

Results, there is a slight trend of warming in Barrow, Alaska. However, in the 60 year sample only once on New Years Day did the temperature even come close to the melting mark of 32 degrees, which was 1974. The next year was one of the coldest days with a high temp of -38 degrees. 2007 temp was -20.

It will be a long time before the ice is gone from the north pole.

nothing wrong with the south pole

Well, anyone who believes in Santa could believe in man caused Global Warming, their both fictional.

While everyone is concerned about the Artic ice shelf melting, the Antartic shelf is growing. Lest we also forget that 30 short years ago, the so called experts were predicting the next ice age.

Why are you all picking on Borgman for the science of this cartoon? This is a coalition of international scientists who truly believe that summer ice will no longer exist in the Arctic at least by 2050, some even say 2012. This is not a group of wacko nut jobs trying to incite panic or promote a liberal tree huggers agenda. This is happening, whether you nay-sayers want to give up your SUVs or not. Just because we likely won't suffer too much from global warming's effects in Ohio doesn't mean we shouldn't show some compassion and make some lifestyle changes that could have big effects on the earth that was given to our charge.

Not picking on Borgman on this one but all those in the religion of global warming. Scientists can be wrong and have been wrong in the past. Not to mention when you read the research its like reading a 9/11 conspiracy thoery and is based on a lot of the same scientific "principles" at the creation museum.

Arctic Sea Ice Re-Freezing at Record Pace

Arctic sea ice re-froze at a record pace, but still lags behind normal levels after a record summer melt.

The record melting of Arctic sea ice observed this summer and fall led to record-low levels of ice in both September and October, but a record-setting pace of re-freezing in November, according to the NASA Earth Observatory. Some 58,000 square miles of ice formed per day for 10 days in late October and early November, a new record.

Still, the extent of sea ice recorded in November was well shy of the median extent observed over the past quarter century, as the image from Nov. 14 (above, right) shows. The dramatic increase in ice is evident, when compared to the record-low amount observed Sept. 16 (below, right). In both images, 100% sea ice is shown in white, and the yellow line encompasses the area ion which there was at least 15% ice cover in at least half of the 25-year record for the given month.

Jim Borgman caught lying again. He's such a good little DemokkkRAT.

Hi Jim,
I differ with your take on global warming--all of the facts don't seem to support the mainstream media scare tactics. Great cartoon though--nice perspective.
