Well, according to The Los Angeles Times, the area of ice lost in the Arctic last year was about the size of Texas. Nonetheless, global warming is a lie of the liberal left-wing media bent on destroying America by depriving it of cars, gasoline, fumes, and parking lots. According to the article (September 16, 2006):
About 288,000 square miles of perennial ice, which normally doesn’t melt during the summer, was lost from 2004 to 2005, scientists found using data from NASA’s QuickScat satellite.
I have a simple solution. Since the ice was Texas-sized, let’s wedge Texas up in the Arctic to replace the lost ice surface.
