Global warming cleverly hides itself with 1 million sq miles more arctic ice
Hot Air ^ | September 8, 2013 | JAZZ SHAW

Posted on 09/09/2013 6:06:56 PM PDT by neverdem

The science is settled unsettling. Comedian Lewis Black said it best on his White Album when he asked, “Do you know what Meteorologist means in English? It means liar.” It seems that we now have more science to settle atop the mountains of previous science which all purports to prove one thing or another. You can decide on the reasons for yourself, but the arctic ice sheet is back with a vengeance.

A chilly Arctic summer has left nearly a million more square miles of ocean covered with ice than at the same time last year – an increase of 60 per cent.

The rebound from 2012’s record low comes six years after the BBC reported that global warming would leave the Arctic ice-free in summer by 2013.

Instead, 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.

Good news for polar bears, if nothing else. But talks of a clear Northwest Passage seem to have fallen by the wayside. In fact, a few people who were counting on it rather heavily are left sort of… stuck.

Only six years ago, the BBC reported that the Arctic would be ice-free in summer by 2013, citing a scientist in the US who claimed this was a ‘conservative’ forecast. Perhaps it was their confidence that led more than 20 yachts to try to sail the Northwest Passage from the Atlantic to the Pacific this summer. As of last week, all these vessels were stuck in the ice, some at the eastern end of the passage in Prince Regent Inlet, others further west at Cape Bathurst.

Shipping experts said the only way these vessels were likely to be freed was by the icebreakers of the Canadian coastguard. According to the official Canadian government website, the Northwest Passage has remained ice-bound and impassable all summer.

Some of the analysts currently scratching their heads over how the planet stubbornly refuses to do what they insist it must are apparently now reflecting on some much older data. Reports are available which indicate a massive melting of the arctic ice sheet in the 1920′s and 30′s, long before the era of global climate studies. But then, it crashed into another period of increased freezing and expansion. The current photo has a few of them wondering if we might be in danger of heading into another ice age, which would be disastrous for mankind.

This just in from Jeff Dunetz.

Today’s UK Daily Mail gives more evidence that would have made my mother, of blessed memory issue a major Jewish Mother Sweater Alert because the Arctic Ice cap grew by 60% this past year and more scientists are warning of the coming ice age.

The heat is hiding at the bottom of the oceans. Trenberth says so.

What do you bet that all these icebound yachts are captained by liberal twits who believed their own political bull?

If the planet was about to freeze, would the hoax deniers tell us?

If that is true, they ought to sue algore. At any rate, we can only hope their insurance refuses to pay on the basis of the sanity clause in the fine print.

This is some serious s**t.

We might want to consider launching some large, VERY LARGE, reflective mylar sheets into space to reflect a little more sun on our planet if things go very cold. This was a freaky-cool summer in Atlanta, GA.

Doesn’t matter if it’s extreme heat or extreme cold. It’s all put into a box called climate change and blamed on humans using too much fossil fuel.

If the ice sheets began to advance southward I think I would consider a means of darkening the ice so it soaks up more sunlight. Its how I melt the ice off my sidewalk when I feel particularly lazy.

I throw out some black rubber mats and the ice under them melts in a couple hours even when it’s super cold.

You could always burn old tires and spread the resulting carbon black particles on the poles. That should stop another ice age from forming.

It's good, I suppose, to follow in the footsteps of famous explorers. Sir John Franklin, for example, who traveled that very route. Well, some of it. The money quote from the article:

The icebound ships were abandoned and the entire crew perished from starvation, hypothermia, tuberculosis, lead poisoning and scurvy.

But they were famous.

I’d give anything to see the reactions of the yacht owners who got trapped in the ice. I’ll betcha more than a few cursed Algore out loud.

In Colorado, they put coal dust on the roads instead of salt.

"They" have also claimed that China and India are putting out a cloud of soot that can be seen by satellites. The prevailing winds takes that black soot right over to the ice packs.

Before the epa started messing with internal combustion engines, good ol' Diesels could belch a big cloud of carbon black.. Maybe we should return to the days of high particulate diesel exhaust - we could collect the black and spread it on those pesky advancing glaciers... ;-)

It would be one way for Algore to use up his, umm, CARBON credits.

What global cooling will do to crops.

Fortunately we have real agricultural scientists working on crops that can compensate, in part, for shorter, cooler, dryer, growing seasons.

Obama on this like a laser...

King Obama issues an Executive Order to the Sun...

....to increase it's magnetic field....

and make a good crop of sunspots before elections in 2016....

(PhysOrg.com) -- Sunspot formation is triggered by a magnetic field, which scientists say is steadily declining. They predict that by 2016 there may be no remaining sunspots, and the sun may stay spotless for several decades.

The last time the sunspots disappeared altogether was in the 17th and 18th century, and coincided with a lengthy cool period on the planet known as the Little Ice Age....and lasted 400 years.

Good luck surviving with no electricity and GE modified seeds.

for 30 years the governmentS and the media have been screaming global warming.

30 years the governments have funded fake research, fake studies, fake science, fake experiments, all to create the hoax called global warming

the media has also been issuing fake news reports for 30 years to spread the lies and brainwash the democrat voters

we never believed that global warming hoax

so they are trying to change the name to climate change

and then they try to say that all this climate change causes more hurricanes but this has been the slowest hurricane season and coldest summer i can remember.

Rush said the media were ecstatic cause finally the first hurricane is way out there in the Atlantic

we should put all of this in the democrats’ face and catch them in their lies. will the low info democrat voters finally realize their gov and media and leaders have been lying to them about global warming for 30 years? and then will they ask what else have they've been lying about?

It has been cool, I live in Dahlonega now but I remember
a summer in the 80’s when we had thirty days straight of
over 100 degree heat, at night is seldom got below 80.
I thought I would die, we were downtown urban pioneers
and lived in a half converted loft.
The HORROR.

Had to look up, “pleniglacial.”

Yes, I agree. All I would tell them is, “Isn’t climate change great?!?!?”
