believe that the soot being blown around the world is increasing. About 2 decades ago, seeing soot up here was really rare. Now we see them all the time and everywhere seems like. And these soot locations, tend to melt faster because they are dark. It's just noticeable up here North of 60th parallel. Also, the gravity in conjunction with human activity is also accelerating melting of snow I think. For years, we held no snomobile races until the turn of the millenia. The sea ice would melt and float away in much the same time during the same season. Now, I think that we are accelerating warming of the ambient temperatures too by our own activities.

Even if a New "Cold" War is unlikly, it's still a great pun.
