To the dismay of Al Gore and global-warming alarmists, ice covering the Arctic has increased dramatically after years of declining, reaching levels not seen this time of year for nearly a decade, Jerome Corsi’s Red Alert reports.

“Arctic sea ice reached its maximum extent for the year on March 31 at 15.25 million square kilometers (5.89 million square miles),” the National Snow and Ice Data Center stated in a recently published report. “This was the latest date for the maximum Arctic sea ice extent since the start of the satellite record in 1979.”

“Still, Corsi noted, “the Obama administration appears determined to tax carbon emissions, either with Congress through an energy bill, or without Congress through the Environmental Protection Agency, declaring CO2 to be a chemical noxious to human beings – even though humans exhale it.”

On April 1, the Environmental Protection Agency began imposing new greenhouse gas emission rules on U.S. vehicles with a set of new regulations that boosted fuel efficiency standards for the first time since the 1970s.

By the end of this month, the EPA is expected to tailor greenhouse-gas rules to require “major polluters,” defined as plants that emit more than about 75,000 tons of greenhouse gases a year, to get permits and demonstrate what technology they are implementing to limit their greenhouse gas emissions.

By March 31, 2011, major polluters will be forced to submit annual reports to the EPA disclosing their progress with reducing emissions of carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide. Opponents to EPA administrator Lisa Jackson’s proposed regulations have until June 1 to file legal challenges with the appeals court.

Red Alert’s author, whose books “The Obama Nation” and “Unfit for Command” have topped the New York Times best-sellers list, received his Ph.D. from Harvard University in political science in 1972. For nearly 25 years, beginning in 1981, he worked with banks throughout the U.S. and around the world to develop financial services marketing companies to assist banks in establishing broker/dealers and insurance subsidiaries to provide financial planning products and services to their retail customers. In this career, Corsi developed three different third-party financial services marketing firms that reached gross sales levels of $1 billion in annuities and equal volume in mutual funds. In 1999, he began developing Internet-based financial marketing firms, also adapted to work in conjunction with banks.

In his 25-year financial services career, Corsi has been a noted financial services speaker and writer, publishing three books and numerous articles in professional financial services journals and magazines.
