Revealed: The Secret Evidence of Global Warming Bush Tried to Hide

Photos from US spy satellites declassified by the Obama White House provide the first graphic images of how the polar ice sheets are retreating in the summer. The effects on the world's weather, environments and wildlife could be devastating

by Suzanne Goldenberg and Damian Carrington
Graphic images that reveal the devastating impact of global warming in the Arctic have been released by the US military. The photographs, taken by spy satellites over the past decade, confirm that in recent years vast areas in high latitudes have lost their ice cover in summer months.

The pictures, kept secret by Washington during the presidency of George W Bush, were declassified by the White House last week. President Barack Obama is currently trying to galvanize Congress and the American public to take action to halt catastrophic climate change caused by rising levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.

I knew that somehow this too would be Bush's fault.

Interesting considering we have been seeing pictures of ice melt from space for the last decade in global warming propoganda.

You do realize they have recently discovered that while these Arctic polar ice sheets are melting and retreating in summer; at the North Pole.

More ice caps/ice sheets are developing in the Antarctica.

How about there have been droughts since earth started cooling?

The Sahara used to be a lush forest. That was before CO2 became a "warming" gas.

Gas, that's for sure.

Stuff changes. Get used to it.

Pretty significant changes from the photos and interesting article.
From the article:

Satellite images of polar ice sheets taken in July 2006 and July 2007 showing the retreating ice during the summer. The pictures, kept secret by Washington during the presidency of George W Bush, were declassified by the White House last week.
...
The photographs demonstrate starkly how global warming is changing the Arctic. More than a million square kilometers of sea ice - a record loss - were missing in the summer of 2007 compared with the previous year.

Nor has this loss shown any sign of recovery. Ice cover for 2008 was almost as bad as for 2007, and this year levels look equally sparse.


If the photos were classified during the Bush Administration, yes, he was messing with the science.
If there was no evidence of climate change, why did he classify them in the first place?
