Is Planet Earth's ice really melting?

Mount Kilimanjaro, Tanzania

For many, part of the world, like Canada, this was the warmest winter ever.

I am not that sold by Linda Moulton Howe, however, she has some important research on this topic that at least deserve reading and draw your own conclusions. I am not sure how serious is this research since I am not a scientist but look hell scary to me.

About Dr. Lonnie Thompson, click here and here.

The research shows with no doubt that the planet's ice is melting, but what is not conclusive is the cause. For some, it doesn't have too much to do with CO2 gases coming from industries and cars but much to do as this is a planet cycle. If that's the case, there's nothing we can do to prevent it but to fasten our seat belts.

What worries scientist is the rate in which ice is melting, which is accelerating much faster than any projection done.
