Skip to comments.Arctic ice cap grows 29% in one year
Posted on 12/02/2013 7:06:59 AM PST by SeekAndFind
Global warming hysterics at the BBC warned us in 2007 that by summer 2013, the Arctic would be ice-free. As with so many other doomsday predictions by warmists, the results turn out to be quite the opposite. The UK Daily Mail reports:
A chilly Arctic summer has left 533,000 more square miles of ocean covered with ice than at the same time last year - an increase of 29 per cent. (snip)
...days before the annual autumn re-freeze is due to begin, an unbroken ice sheet more than half the size of Europe already stretches from the Canadian islands to Russia's northern shores.
The Northwest Passage from the Atlantic to the Pacific has remained blocked by pack-ice all year. More than 20 yachts that had planned to sail it have been left ice-bound and a cruise ship attempting the route was forced to turn back.

Here is how the Daily Mail Summarizes their article:
* 533,000 more square miles of ocean covered with ice than in 2012
* BBC reported in 2007 global warming would leave Arctic ice-free in summer by 2013
* Publication of UN climate change report suggesting global warming caused by humans pushed back to later this month
The new Ice Age is beginning if it keeps up at that rate.
Polar bears PARTY ON !
This good news means liberals are very relieved and are celebrating, right?
At this rate, the entire earth will be covered in ice in less than 10 years!
A cruise ship did go through in September. There was more ice, but the passage was not blocked. While that ship made it, they had to detour a bit based on real time ice reports and the Canadian kept ice breakers on standby. Cruising the NW passage is a multi-million dollar business so they will do it with or without ice.
If they lived in a world based on reality, they would... but instead, they trash the "Mail" as nothing more than a tabloid using false information. Present liberals with the statistics that show the whole "global warming science" is junk, and they STILL cling to the notion of some 98% of scientists concluding the presence of man-made factors as a cause for "climate change." The liberals, trained monkeys as they are on this subject, almost universally disdain any counter-argument to their propaganda. The fun is when you try to get them to acknowledge the conclusions of scientists back in the late '70s about the coming Ice Age. They won't reply back about it... they won't touch the subject. They'll just spit some invective at you and go back to Square One (i.e. "consensus".. "settled science," etc.).
Current status of Arctic sea ice:
Al the Assclown wrong as usual. This is junk science just like evolution. Always trying to scare people and teach the low brows that this is the way it is. Then again, most of those that have a degree in this crap are just that, just what the leftists, goose stepping atheist.
These scams are the reason the communist changed it from global warming to their new buzz word of climate change. If it still does not work out, they probably have a 250 person committee working day and night working on a new “term” to call it if climate change does not work out.
And Antarctic sea ice is at a 35-year record high.
A happy prog? Never seen one, unless they were drunk and close to hooking up.

UK Forecasters 2013 Winter to be longest in history
(Heavy snow could fall until MAY warn forecasters.)
Britain is facing an unprecedented SIX MONTH winter with long-range forecasters warning that relentless heavy snow and sub-zero temperatures could last until MAY.
(These warnings come from forecasters James Madden of Exacta Weather and Jonathan Powell of Vantage Weather Services. Ive been told that their forecasts arent worth the paper theyre printed on, but heres the link in case youre interested.)
” Cruising the NW passage is a multi-million dollar business so they will do it with or without ice.”
Our CPA did it in the 1970s, i think it cost them $18,000 back then.
