Since we seem to have become another environment board and people have been questioning "Global Warming". OK its been cold this winter but that is weather not climate.

I used to fly over the area a lot beginning in 1971 with my last patrols in 1980. I also spent seven weeks up there on an "Ice Capable" navy AOR flying back seat utility helicopter work. You can't imagine how much fun you can have with 3000 pounds of batteries for a sub tracking system in a box slung 20 feet below the bird when it starts to twirl and swing. We had to move over 100 of these pallets from the ship to a site on Devon Island. This does not even mention "herding" a family of 3 Polar bears away from some scientists that were working on the ice or slinging a 3500 pound sea sled that wanted to fly itself. }};-O

While the great lakes are 80% covered in ice.

The Arctic ocean is warming and removing the reflective capability thereby speeding up the warming.

Good luck to us all.
