Arctic Ice Increasing Between Canada And Greenland. "Highest Level Of Ice In 15 Years."
Sermitsiak - Greenland News ^ | 02/20/2008 | Staff Writers

Posted on 02/20/2008 4:40:35 AM PST by joeclarke

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?

Shifting weather

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.

Now we have the melancholy Danes weighing in. Their "experts" see proof that there is no present global warming but, paraphrased, "it can still happen in the future."

These socialists just can't release their icy fingers from Algore's hot air global scam.

Algore's movie worked!

Hallelujah!

We are saved!

Ab-so-frickin-lutely A-damn-mazing!

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.

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.

Meteorological doublespeak.

Soon to be heard:

Global cooling is caused by global warming. As are: (1) unusual variations in global temperature, and (2) unusual constancy in global temperature.

I just browsed a Greenland tourism website and have discovered why there is so much concern about global warming.

From what I could see, there is absolutely nothing there other than rocks and ice and snow. On the "Things to do" list there is dogsledding, watching the musk oxen and hiking from town to town. No beaches, no para-sailing, no river rafting, no outside cafes, no nothing! I hope they have plenty of booze there because it looks like the only thing to do is to get drunk........

With that being said, they have to project a picture of Greenland melting away so as to attract scientists from all over the world to come and study the effects of global warming. Their tourist economy is totally dependent on government funded scientists........

But... but...

Human activities are releasing carbon dioxide faster than ever, while the natural processes that normally slow its build up in the atmosphere appear to be weakening. These conclusions are drawn in a new study in the early online edition of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, October 22-26. The report states that “together, these effects characterize a carbon cycle that is generating stronger-than-expected climate forcing sooner than expected.”

The ice between Canada and southwestern Greenland has reached its highest level in 15 years.

That can't be true. In his Houston Hope-a-Dope speech last night, Barack the Magic Negro said that we need his $150 billion renewable energy plan and emissions caps to stop the polar ice caps from melting.

Cut 'em some slack. The disclaimer is probably so they can keep their jobs.
At least they report what they found.
