It's been happening the past few summers, but researchers say it's getting bigger each season. It is a lake covering the North Pole during these summer months caused by ice melting in the summer sun. This year's lake formedn on July 13 and is about a foot deep. And since water absorbs more solar radiation than ice, researchers expect this lake to keep growing each season ass the ice underneath gets thinner.

I do not believe in global warming, I think it is just the natural change. If you go back millions of years there has been climate changes all over the world.

Yes cliemate change has occured with periods of warming and cooling, but if you do some reasearch and look at real scientific studies, we are currently in a very rapid period of warming. This can be linked to human activity. Its not that the earth is warming, but how fast and by how much that causes the worry.

It could very well be not true, but signs have shown for years that the climate has increased rather than decreased.

I think global warming is because of the greenhouse effect. Stop cutting down trees.

It's really important to stop global warming before the ice caps in Antartica melt and flood the surrounding ocean. If we do not solve this problem it will severly harm the earth.
