Posted on 01/08/2012 5:51:53 AM PST by brookwood

Excess sea ice in the Antarctic (0.63 mm km^2) is greater than the deficit in the Arctic ( -0.53 mm km^2)

It’s obvious that we’re entering a new Ice Age. It’s caused by Global Warming.

Global Warming is *amazing*! Is there anything it cannot do?

Correct sir, If you look at the data on record, there is typically a temeprature spike period right before an Ice Age. Unfortunately, it’s probably related to solar activity and not anything happening on the planet. Al Gore won’t be able to save us.

Well, that kinda' sucks.

Can he put in a good word for me to St. Peter as an expert anyway?

All this data conflicting with the MMGW theories makes Al Gore weep. His program to make Earth more like his home world, Hoth, just keeps falling more and more behind schedule.

Now I’m really worried - it appears that the Arctic and Antarctic are out of sync and we will go into a death wobble it it isn’t straightened out. I sure hope nobody tips one of those small islands over; it could be the catalyst that allows global warming to do us all in.

Just shows what you know about Science with a capital "S". Anthropogenic Global Warming Theory is very robust with respect to data. All observations confirm it at the 100% confidence level.

The graph was ready-made and likely looks like this;



Of course, the image could be mirror flipped to show an decrease.

See, there is good news. With all that weight at the bottom, it will keep the planet from reversing poles and turning up side down dumping all of us out into space! Isnt science wonderful?

Its obvious that due to global warming that more fresh water is being evaporated and put into the atmosphere. Since global warming has shifted global air circulation, more warm moist air is traveling to the south and getting frozen into more and more Antarctic sea ice at a rate higher than the loss of ice from the arctic. This will threaten world population with a shortage of fresh drinking water and will threaten coastal towns with a drastic drop in sea levels. Owners of waterfront homes could see drastic changes to their shore lines and major ports could become landlocked-upsetting the global economy. I am submitting my grant application now to the federal government to study this new problem of drastic ice increases and global sea level drop caused by global warming.

Any chance the earth will “tip over”?

Maybe we should move the American military to the North Pole to counter-balance.

You forgot the /sarcasm tag. It’s necessary here because a certain percentage of loons actually believe what you wrote, some of them in positions of high office where they are busily spending our tax dollars on the basis of such idiocy.

One of the best sites for keeping track of the global warming scam is http://wattsupwiththat.com

It’s run by Anthony Watts and has that graph on the Sea Ice Page, as well as tons of other information, plus two or three new topics relevant to global warming nearly every day.

Here’s the link to the Sea Ice Page: http://wattsupwiththat.com/reference-pages/sea-ice-page/ The graph is near the top.

And by the same people who adjusted the measurements in the first place, so you know it’s all good.

Fuel ship 190 miles from iced-in Nome

"A Russian tanker carrying much-needed fuel for iced-in Nome was about 190 miles from its destination late Saturday afternoon and making slow but steady progress, a company official said.

The city of about 3,500 people on the northwest Alaska coastline didn't get its last pre-winter fuel delivery because of a massive storm and could run out of crucial supplies before spring without the delivery."

Thank the Good Lord that Antarctica is at the bottom of the world, or that ice imbalance could tip the planet over.

OTOH, it is only natural that the extra ice would float down hill from the Arctic Ocean to Antarctica.

OTOOH, if this is Anthropogenic Global Ice Imbalance, and is caused by Catastrophic Anthropogenic Climate Aberration, due to Anthropogenic Global Warming, then we must take steps to reverse this terribly alarming and dangerous situation!

What a load of bunk! As the earth warms, the expansion of sea water due to Temperature Change will MORE than offset your minuscule drop in Global Mean Sea Level, flooding coastal towns and ports.

I'm applying for a grant to debunk your crackpot premise.

And MY grant application is for MORE money than yours, so TAKE THAT!

(Do I really need a sarcasm tag for this?)

I use the "AGWT rois very bust with respect to data" line and "The AGWT is unfalsifiable" line a lot here on FR and it occassionally gets a rise out of some people. I admit it is a bit naughty of me. Still, it is my own thing, and I rather like it.
