As always, I’ll note that I’ll believe it when I see it
(UK Telegraph) There has been a 60 per cent increase in the amount of ocean covered with ice compared to this time last year, they equivalent of almost a million square miles.
The UK Daily Mail has a big article on this
In a rebound from 2012′s record low an unbroken ice sheet more than half the size of Europe already stretches from the Canadian islands to Russia’s northern shores, days before the annual re-freeze is even set to begin.
The Northwest Passage from the Atlantic to the Pacific has remained blocked by pack-ice all year, forcing some ships to change their routes.
A leaked report to the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) seen by the Mail on Sunday, has led some scientists to claim that the world is heading for a period of cooling that will not end until the middle of this century.
If correct, it would contradict computer forecasts of imminent catastrophic warming. The news comes several years after it was predicted that the arctic would be ice-free by 2013.
Well, really, reality contradicts the computer models from the Warmists. Whether we are just in a pause or will move towards a) a slight cooling similar to the 1940′s through 1970′s, b) a flip to a cool period, as has been going on throughout the Holocene, or c) and actual glacial period remains to be seen. But what this all shows is that the Modern Warm Period, which started around the mid-1800′s, is mostly natural. Of course, Warmists won’t acknowledge natural variability, except as a way of trying to cover for the pause (though they still try hard to Blame Mankind for cold weather), yet they still fail to practice what they preach.
