Skip to comments.Arctic Ice Increasing Between Canada And Greenland. "Highest Level Of Ice In 15 Years."

The ice between Canada and southwestern Greenland has reached its highest level in 15 years.
Minus 30 degrees Celsius. That's how cold it's been in large parts of western Greenland where the population has been bundling up in hats and scarves. At the same time, Denmark's Meteorological Institute states that the ice between Canada and southwest Greenland right now has reached its greatest extent in 15 years.
'Satellite pictures show that the ice expansion has extended farther south this year. In fact, it's a bit past the Nuuk area. We have to go back 15 years to find ice expansion so far south. On the eastern coast it hasn't been colder than normal, but there has been a good amount of snow.'
But how do these new reports fit in with continual reports that ice in the Arctic Ocean has been melting at a record rate due to increasing temperatures? And isn't global warming at the top of the political agenda these years?
If it's up to meteorologists from Denmark's Meteorological Institute, there is not anything inherently contradictory that extreme cold is replaced by higher temperatures than average. Or that melting sea ice occasionally is replaced by expanding ice sheets.
'Weather is a phenomenon which changes from year to year and right now the atmosphere has changed so we have cold weather. That will certainly mean that melting ice in the North Pole will be less this year, but next year the situation can look completely different,' according to Henriksen.
To sum things up, global warming hasn't been called off. In the meanwhile, western Greenlanders will have to accept that the cold weather continues for some time. At least until next Tuesday when milder weather could be on the way, according to Polarfronten online.
And Gore is deeply saddened.
These socialists just can't release their icy fingers from Algore's hot air global scam.
We are saved!
One - 1 - Uno - Ein - Une - movie and Global Warming(Climate Change for those in Rio Linda that missed the memo) is destroyed, reversed, cancelled, overcome.
How fortunate we were to not vote this man in as President so he could devote his full attention toward saving the planet.
< /sarcasm >
The facts elude the global warming religionists and always will. They are the sheeple of the marxist movement and fools that follow the blind and can not see the truth because they to love the lies of the left and rinos.
An inconvenient truth.
I’m sure McCain will announce his abandonment of that stupid, expensive, envirowhack global warming policy any time now...
Is that anywhere near the Nyuk area?
Quick send a large ship with liberals to try and sail the Northwest passage.
Polar Bears hardest hit...
Still, I wonder if liberals would believe it, if said with a straight face.
So what they’re saying is the earth is warming.. except when it isn’t.
It is called a miracle, I tell you - workings of the great swami AlGore, who has come to deliver the world from its Greenhouse sinning and the penalty of which is death by global warming.
All praise to the swami!
Now line up and take your mark like a good little Comrade... Bow down and worship the image.
