Global warming? Nah, just more Intelligent Design

The times, they are a changing... Green Car Congress reports on another study confirming major climate and ecosystem changes due to global warming: Seasonally Ice-Free Arctic Appears Locked and Loaded:

Current warming trends in the Arctic will shove the Arctic system into a seasonally ice-free state not seen for more than one million years, according to a new report.

While this is not the first forecast of the melting of Arctic sea ice due to global warming, the authors indicate that not only is melting accelerating, but that they were unable to identify any natural processes that might slow the de-icing of the Arctic, land and sea.

Over at WorldChanging there's been a lot of talk about the need for "terraforming" projects to help counter changes like this by helping the earth become more earth-like again. Yipes.
