I know this is difficult for some news and governmental organizations to understand but it just happens to be a fact on our planet that ice grows faster in the cold and melts with warmer temperatures. Yet the United States government, the United Nations and many media organizations are still trying to convince the public that we live in a warming world. Most hard data and the experience of people from around the world tell us something different.
Today we read that an area twice the size of Alaska was open water two years ago and is now covered in ice after the arctic ice cap has expanded for the second year in a row. For Obama and most democrats that means it is getting warmer. The Arctic ice extent is now at its highest for this date in 10 years according to the Danish Meteorological Institute. Stunning satellite images show summer ice cap is thicker and covers 1.7million square kilometers MORE than 2 years ago. Far from vanishing, the Arctic ice cap has expanded for the second year in succession – with a surge, depending on how you measure it, of between 43 and 63% since 2012.
In the alternative press we sometimes see a false report spread like wildfire because people do not check out what is true or not. We would not expect that from major news organizations so it is disappointing to see the same sloppiness coming from the mainstream press. What is being cloned around the net is that Arctic air temperatures are still increasing at twice the rate of global air temperatures reports Time Magazine. This statement makes no sense because global air temperatures are decreasing.
The NOAA-led report shows that Arctic air temperatures continue to rise at more than twice the rate of global air temperatures, a phenomenon known as Arctic amplification. Increasing air and sea surface temperatures, declining reflectivity at the surface of the Greenland ice sheet, shrinking spring snow cover on land and summer ice on the ocean all are included. NOAA is of course lying just as the CDC does about the safety of mercury-laden vaccines.
That black line shows quite clearly that global warming has been turned upside down at the North Pole. The bounce back in the extent of sea ice in the Arctic this summer was reflected also in the volume of ice. Data from Europe’s Cryosat spacecraft suggests there were almost 9,000 cu km of ice at the end of this year’s melt season. This is close to 50% more ice than in the corresponding period in 2012.
For those who only know how to think backwards (or in lies and deception) more ice means its warming. It is the new physics. Ice forms when it is warmer! This year’s record cold and record ice formation means it is the warmest year in forever. That is a summation of the deteriorating intelligence or dishonesty of the press and the government!
The more credible National Snow and Ice Data Center is saying, “Sea ice extent in November is 520,000 square kilometers (201,000 square miles) above the record low for the month observed in 2006. Arctic sea ice extent continued to increase throughout the month of November. By the end of the month, most of the Arctic Ocean was covered by ice.” Al Gore, who predicted an ice-free Artic, and many who believed in him, are of course terribly disappointed. Global warming was never a science but a religion. All the ice in the world seems incapable of melting their attachments to their false system of beliefs.
Does that look like it is warming in the Arctic? Last year we read that a chilly Arctic summer has left 533,000 more square miles of ocean covered with ice than at the same time last year – an increase of 29%. 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.
Interestingly we find that Antarctic sea ice has hit its second all-time record maximum this year. The new record is 2.112 million square kilometers above normal. The previous record had been 1.840 million square kilometers above normal; a mark hit on December 20, 2007. It was a cold summer down in Antarctica, with sea ice coverage growing about 43,500 square miles a day, according to the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSDC). April 2014 beats the previous sea-ice coverage record from April 2008 by a whopping 124,000 square miles.
In October of 2014, we read that for the first time since satellite records began in 1979 that Antarctic sea ice has passed the 20 million square kilometer mark making it more difficult to operate in the sea ice in Antarctica. Over the past three years, there has been a steady increase in sea ice, which scientists have linked to global warming, and a reduction in the mass of the Antarctic ice shelf.
At the Center for Ocean and Ice one can see charts like this going back to 1958. There is no evidence anywhere to be seen about rapid warming in the Arctic but we do have evidence of hyperactive imaginations and wishful thinking and many people who just cannot think of anything but what the press tells them.
Mike Lockwood, professor of space environment physics, from the University of Reading, through an analysis of ice-cores, which hold a long-term record of solar activity, suggests the decline in activity on the sun is the fastest that has been seen in 10,000 years. "It’s an unusually rapid decline," explains Prof Lockwood.
