I would simply be amiss if I didn’t write about this news. Remember how we have been informed by the scientific community that global warming is on the march and how it is all our fault? Remember the claims they have made that the Arctic could experience an ice-free summer in 2013? As it turns out, that hasn’t happened. In fact, quite the opposite has taken place. Instead of the ice receding, it has gained ground (or would that be water) in 2013. This comes to us from The Daily Mail, via Hot Air.
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.
Here’s an image to show you the difference between 2012 and 2013.
As you can see, there has been quite the change from 2012 to 2013. As one commenter pointed out on the Hot Air post, this isn’t so much drastic change, as it is the natural ebb and flow of the Earth’s weather patterns. But, not to be outdone, some climate scientists are now claiming we are about to enter into a period that may result in another ice age. These people really do go from one extreme to another.
Once again, we see the science of global warming on display for what it really is. It isn’t real science, but more so a religion that is aimed at gathering all the money it can pull in. For further research, of course. I know this isn’t Syria or Iran, or any of the other trouble spots in the world, but it is worth writing about. Anytime this global warming junk science is laid bare, it needs to be reported. For what it’s worth, I’m sure the polar bears are happy.
How foolish is all this talk about climate change and global warming? It is foolish enough that some people really believed the Arctic was going to be free of ice in the summer of 2013. So much so, that some mariners were talking about sailing the Northwest Passage. In case you are wondering, there are over 20 yachts stuck in the ice, trying to sail from the Atlantic to the Pacific Oceans. The Arctic ice has gotten its revenge.
