November Arctic Sea Ice Growth Exceeds 1979-2000 Average (Talk about bad timing)
National Snow and Ice Data Center ^ | 12-7-09 | NSIDC STAFF

Posted on 12/08/2009 2:39:06 PM PST by icwhatudo

"In November, the average rate of Arctic sea ice growth slightly exceeded the 1979 to 2000 average growth rate for the month."

---snip---

"420,000 square kilometers (160,000 square miles) above the record low for the month, which occurred in November 2006. In general, the ice edge is now at or slightly beyond its average location, with two notable exceptions: Hudson Bay and the Barents Sea."

If 1/3 of the arctic ice cover is gone and sea lanes are now almost wide open...then how do they explain "In general, the ice edge is now at or slightly beyond its average location".

This is all propaganda by right-wing-racist naysayers who enjoy seeing poor people in Bangladesh get flooded out by the seas which are expected to rise 1000’s of feet in the next month if we don’t pass cap-and-trade NOW.

The MSM will explain it this way:

It’s a temporary short term phenomenom. El Nino is causing the Northern Hemisphere to be colder than normal this year. If it wasn’t for global warming, the November ice growth would have been even greater.

There’s that damn word....average...Now, we all know how you get an “average”, right?? You keep some numbers that look good, throw out some that look bad, keep some because you think they’re more truerer, throw some out because they mess up the answer....THEN....you toss all the numbers in a fish bowl....and pick the one up your sleeve.

Anyone else remember the 1970’s when we were going into another ice age?

I'm holed up here in a motel in Erick, OK, on my drive to CA, with the car, the parking lot, and the Interstate on-ramps coated with almost a quarter inch of ice. Traffic on the Interstate moving slowly. Saw an accident on the Interstate just near the motel between a semi and a pickup truck. The pickup spun around several times on the icy road. The semi couldn't stop. Ambulance later took the pickup driver away. I don't have any details.

Hope they get the roads cleared tomorrow so I can get on my way again. Tell me about Globull Warming. I could use some.

From sidney,...I think it's summer down under...do you know Fred?

It's 32 C down there,...I don't think ice is a problem at that temp....and I am stranded on the Southern California Beach and it isn't real warm either.... will be under 40 F tonight,...chilly the last few days with rain yesterday.

But I don't miss those ice storms back in my home country which is just north of where you are.

YOU WANT THE BABY POLAR BEARS TO DROWN, DON'T YOU??!!!????

(Sigh!) It just dipped below zero where I'm sitting. Maybe I'd be a little more receptive to the hazards of Global Warming if I weren't worried about the pipes freezing. And winter's only just started.

Global warming will erase your hard drive. Not the data, but your actual hard drive! Not only that, but it will scramble any disks that are even close to your computer. It will recalibrate your refrigerator's coolness setting so all your ice cream goes melty. It will demagnetize the strips on all your credit cards, screw up the tracking on your television and use subspace field harmonics to scratch any CD's you try to play.

It will give your ex-girlfriend your new phone number. It will mix Kool-aid into your fishtank. It will drink all your beer and leave its socks out on the coffee table when there's company coming over. It will put a dead kitten in the back pocket of your good suit pants and hide your car keys when you are late for work.

Global warming will make you fall in love with a penguin. It will give you nightmares about circus midgets. It will pour sugar in your gas tank and shave off both your eyebrows while dating your girlfriend behind your back and billing the dinner and hotel room to your Discover card.

It will seduce your grandmother. It does not matter if she is dead, such is the power of Global warming, it reaches out beyond the grave to sully those things we hold most dear.

It moves your car randomly around parking lots so you can't find it. It will kick your dog. It will leave libidinous messages on your boss's voice mail in your voice! It is insidious and subtle. It is dangerous and terrifying to behold. It is also a rather interesting shade of mauve.

Global warming will give you Dutch Elm disease. It will leave the toilet seat up. It will make a batch of Methanphedime in your bathtub and then leave bacon cooking on the stove while it goes out to chase gradeschoolers with your new snowblower.

Listen to me. Global warming does not exist.

It cannot do anything to you. But I can. I am sending this message to everyone in the world. Tell your friends, tell your family. If anyone else bothers me with fearmongering concerning Global warming, I will turn hating them into a religion. I will do things to them that would make a horsehead in your bed look like Easter Sunday brunch.

Rush just said that Gore was on NBC today saying it was melting and would soon be gone.

Excellent explanation, slightly tongue in cheek, but certainly true for the IPCC climate change "scientists."
