  1. Ice is indeed a threat.

    Specifically, fresh water ice melting from Greenland’s glaciers.

    The latest study paper released by James Hansen and a team of respected climate scientists. Points out, because fresh water is lighter than sea water, all the trillions of tonnes of melting ice being dumped in the North Atlantic becomes what they call “a lens of fresh water” floating on top of the denser salty sea water.

    The effect of this floating “lens” of fresh water is to shut down and alter the normal oceanic currents that distribute and mix warm and cold water between the poles and the tropics.

    This will lead to extreme temperature inversions between global latitudes, like nothing in recorded history.

    It is temperature inversions, differences between clashing cold and warm fronts, that fuel our weather and give us our worst storms.

    The more extreme the temperature inversions, the more extreme the resulting weather patterns.

    How extreme?

    Like nothing we have ever experienced before.
