This year we have had an unprecedented rise in CO2 levels. We have likely seen the last time CO2 will ever be below 400 ppm at the bottom of last years dip. In An Inconvenient Truth Al Gore said hitting 400 at all would be a big deal.

In 2012 the ice coverage fell to below 4 million square kilometers for the first time in at least 800,000 years as best we can tell and since we've had satellites for sure.

If a picture is worth a thousand words..

Does this mean Santa Claus will drown this year? That's very sad!

I'll practice TAPS to prepare for mourning him. I should also help prepare CARE packages with vino, vino, from the children of Americas' elementary schools to the children of the world. Vino, vino for Virginia. Don't cry! There was indeed a Santa Claus. Here's the CARE nightcap.
