Today, ice caps form over 80% of the fresh water on earth. Some species do not produce seeds at all, reproducing asexually through root growth.

The bare and sometimes rocky ground can only support low growing plants like mosses, heaths, and lichen. But on snow—even at concentrations below five parts per billion—such dark carbon triggers melting, and may be responsible for as much as 94 percent of Arctic warming....." Combine this study's results with recent Greenland ice sheet research and it becomes very evident why the empirical evidence (satellites and tide gauges) does not conform to the wild predictions of climate models; nor does the real world science conform to baseless, exaggerated "journalism" spoon-fed by the green climate activists.
