Greenpeace tried to declare that by 2030 we would be seeing "ice free" summers in the Arctic. By declaring such sensationalism, they hope to persuade people to jump on board with limiting carbon dioxide.
Finally, however, reporters are beginning to question these ridiculous statements. The BBC pressed Gerd Leipold, the retiring leader of Greenpeace. Leipold had to admit that the ice wasn't going to be gone, he explained that "we, as a pressure group, have to emotionalize issues."
And there you have it! The truth, finally! It's not about science, its about emotion. Do it because it feels good, not because it is actually going to cool the planet.
