12 The Julian News Questions & Answers About Our Environment Dear EarthTalk: I heard that the Arctic summer sea ice is at its lowest level since we began recording it. What are the implications of all this melting? -- Jo Shoemaker, Bowie, MD It is true that on September 16, 2012 the world reached a new low: The National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) reported that the extent of sea ice across the Arctic was at its lowest since satellite record-keeping began in 1979. On that date the sea ice reached its summer minimum, 1.32 million square miles, half of what the average size of summer ice was between 1979 and 2000, and almost 20 percent lower than the previous record minimum of 1.61 million square miles set on Sept. 18, 2007. NSIDC added that, despite especially warm conditions in 2007 being much more favorable for sea ice loss than this year, the thinning of sea ice due to climate change has made the ice more vulnerable to breakup and melting. Meanwhile, researchers with the European Space Agency's CryoSat-2 probe reported in August that beyond the loss of sea-ice extent, the thickness and volume of the ice has also been declining significantly faster than expected: They found just 1,679 cubic miles this past summer as compared to 3,118 cubic miles in the summer of 2004. They anticipate that the Arctic could be ice-free in the summer for a day or more by the end of the decade. The implications of such melting are potentially immense. For starters, wildlife like polar bears, seals and walruses depend on sea ice for their survival; their habitat is literally being pulled out from under them. Polar bears were added to the federal Endangered Species List in 2008 for this very reason in what environmentalists herald as a great victory in that the federal government officially recognized the existence of global warming and would therefore be able to take more decisive action to rein in carbon pollution--of course, that part of the dream has yet to be realized. Perhaps even more alarming is the fact that melting sea ice and accelerating Arctic warming spur changes in the jet stream that increase the frequency of weather extremes like droughts, floods, heat waves and cold spells in the mid-latitude regions of the Northern Hemisphere. The fact that 2012 has been a scorcher all around--July was the hottest month on record, with two-thirds of the U.S. in drought, wildfires running rampant and half the counties in the country designated as federal disaster areas--only makes the connection between carbon pollution and the. greenhouse effect all the more apparent. Environmentalists argue that we already have the technology On September 16, 2012 thgNational Snow and Ice Data Center reported that the extent of sea ice across the Arctic was at its lowest since satellite record-keeping began in 1979. Pictured." Satellite data reveal how the new record low compares to the average minimum extent over the past 30 years (oultined area). and the legal tools to achieve rapid greenhouse pollution reductions "Full use of all of the Clean Air Act's successful pollution-reduction programs is our best route to quick reductions in greenhouse gas emissions," says Shaye Wolf, climate science director at the Center for Biological Diversity's Climate Law Institute. "The Obama administration, however, has been too slow and timid in using this bedrock law to cut pollution," "The polar meltdown shows we're teetering on the brink of climate-change catastrophe," adds Wolf. "Arctic sea ice plays a critical role in regulating the planet's climate. We can't wait any longer to cut carbon pollution."

On second down, Hunter pitches a lateral .to Cole who puts his arm into and throws for a wide-open Tah. The ball just skims Tah's hand for an INC. Hunter gets the first down with a 15-yard rocket to Kellen and follows up with a 32-yard catch and run to Cole. First and goal at the Rams 2. Jumbo time as Duey gets his first TD of the season. The Eagles attempt at a two-pointer end up short, but they're coming back ..... ..but will they run out of time? Less than 4 minutes to go, Borrego 33, Julian 27. The Rams get a good return on Brian's kick, but can't deal with a swarming flock of Eagles defenders and the ball goes back to Julian after an offensive pass interference call with a loss of down and a Rams' desperation pass attempt on a third down incompletion. Borrego's punt is deep into the Eagles territory. With 2:02 left on the clock and the game on the line, Hunter tried a quick pass to Kellen that went incomplete. On second down, Hunter finds Tah out in the open and gives the ball flight. Tah plucked the ovoid orb over the head of a Rams DB and sailed into the endzone for an 80-yard touchdown. About 6 yards from the endzone, Tah made a PPR highlights worthy move which the sidelines official, took as a taunt. The officials couldn't decide if the call would be for taunting or an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty. The ball was set at the 17 for the extra point. Which just made it a little bit longer of a chip shot for Brian. The PAT was good and now, with 1:48 left in the game, WE ARE UP 34 to 33. The game ain't over yet. Borrego takes Brian's kick deep and gets back to their 35- yard line. The Rams first pass falls incomplete. The Rams get no yards on a rush against the fired up Eagles D Line and October 31, 2012 get flagged for offsides on third down. Another flag for an illegal procedure call and the Rams go out on downs with 13 seconds left on the clock. Your Eagles take a knee and the game is over, flnitoH Final score, the Julian Eagles 34, the Borrego Springs Rams 33.
