Late-season freeze sets Baltic ice record
CET ^ | April 5, 2013

Posted on 04/06/2013 10:06:26 PM PDT by george76

"Since record keeping began in the sixties, we've never encountered anything like this before," ice breaker Ulf Gulldne told the local newspaper Örnsköldsviks Allehanda.

On March 29th, 176,000 square kilometers of the Baltic Sea was covered in ice, a record for the time of year. On a map, it means about half of the central and northern parts are frozen over. Far north, the ice is both thick and difficult to break through.

The date on which the ice reaches its maximum spread usually falls much earlier in the year. The previously latest date record was March 25th, 2008. That year, only 49,000 square kilometeres of the Baltic was covered in ice, which was the smallest maximum spread of ice in the previous 100 years.

"I've never seen this much ice this late in the season," said Karl Herlin, captain of the icebreaker Atle, currently working off the coast of Luleå in northern Sweden.

Global Varming is dying a fast death. Even “Get Smart” is getting it.

All you libs that follow the Goracle may want to sue his ass for breeding stupidity in the classroom.

In ten years we may be begging for some global warming.

Fools.

“Our global warming predictions?” “Missed it by ‘that much’”.

There is always another ice age coming. Been that way for tens of thousands of years.

The good news is we have had 6 days of increasing solar activity levels. Whoo Hoo. So we may be seeing the second and final peaking of this depressed solar maximum period. One must expect a violent spring on plant ape. The last gasp of short term energy from the sun infusing into a massive greater then decade long cooling trend.

This is why they changed it from "global warming" to "climate change". Wouldn't want to confuse their mindless zombie followers. "AGW is resulting in wild swings of climate" - like the earth has never seen that before....

It's still caused by "evil" mankind!!

Hi, Lancey. I’ve been saying for years that this so-called obesity pandemic is nature’s way of preparing us for a new mini ice age. Yhe more I see, the more I believe it.

I can’t believe the snark. A freezing planet is most certainly an effect of global warming. Every simulation predicted this.

Snow in Alaska this time of year is not surprising.

6” of snow last week in Blacksburg, VA - very strange.

i’ve had many debates with stupid liberals/democrats who asssured me the ice caps are melting ,seas are rising and that I’m destroying the planet by driving my car. I’ve told them what will you when it gets colder in a few years? and they said it won’t .

The entropic regression phenomena present the best example of climactic enthalopy seen in decades. There can be no better proof of man generated global temperature increase than these measurable events.

Hear, Hear! “Up north” in central Minnesot we have yet to see a 50 degree temperature this spring. Mpls-St Paul finally reached that mark this past week - I think 2 days reached that temp.
