thank god this is all just a theory. otherwise, i'd be really concerned.
I was about to say the same thing .
This kind of says it all, there is a definite trend happening.
I think it would be ironicly fitting to say "let's ignore it and it might go away" .
this is all a cycle that the world goes through, hot points and cold points.
But if we just ignore it, it will go away!
"it" being the ice cap, of course.
You know that, do you?
When does the cold part happen? Maybe we're in for another ice age. Mother nature fighting back and all.

"there's a bear chewing on your leg."
"well, that's what bears do, isn't it?"
"isn't that going to kill you?"
"who am i to fight mother nature?"
again, you need to back up your comments with something more substantial than just thoughts.
It might become a self perpetuating system if the arctic ocean continues to absorb solar energy. Historically (in human time), there have been seasons when the summers have been ice free, but its not ever been a lasting cycle. What they're talking about here goes well beyond a Northwest Passage, though. I also think the time tables are a little optimistic/misleading, things will get a lot worse sooner - the 2100 for total melting doesn't really take into account what happens up to that point. Even a 50% reduction in ice cap size will cause havoc to the eco systems up north.
