Me, I think it is highly stupid defining something ever changing that has been free from Ice several times and has had lots of more Ice than today as having a “normal” amount of ice. However, that’s how the paid for by big oil at NSIDC is seeing it…
But for me this is kind of strange actually. Contrary to popular belief when most of the world gets hotter, the Ice sheet in the arctics grows, not the other way around. This has to do with clouds, water vapor, and the normal state of affairs of this planet.
We’ve just had the coldest winter in the northern hemisphere in over a century and the Ice grows? I don’t know what real climatologists say about that one, but one thing is for sure, media will not pick up the story, not dooming and glooming enough.
The Bering Sea ice will melt this summer, it happens every year and has for millennia. Nothing strange about it, the winds and the summer warmth do it, but that will decrease the ice sheets during the summer and that will make the news, not this little report.
I find it very interesting that Mother Nature is screwing up this little icy theory of manmade climate change, as she usually does.
Remember how the members of the Church of Climatology were freezing their socks of last year during the Fraudenhagen talks? Or do you remember how the NOAA tried to call a press conference in Washington recently? The conference was supposed to be about “earlier snowmelt and extended ice-free seasons”, but it had to be postponed because of the heaviest snowfall in decades…
And now, just as Scientists in the US have presented one of the most dramatic forecasts yet for the disappearance of Arctic sea ice, then the Arctic is growing. Professor Wieslaw Maslowski told an American Geophysical Union meeting the other day that previous projections had underestimated the processes now driving ice loss claiming that by 2013 Arctic summers would be ice-free.
Being kind of intoxicated I feel the need to point out that right now I could probably come up with a story like this, but it is much better when the Earth and its normal functions do it for me.
I feel this crap is getting boring. Even regular people out there is starting to see through this scam, I don’t even need to get people drunk anymore before they want to slaughter some white bears.
Al Gore and the rest can probably still make millions (billions) out of this so they will continue to perpetrate the hoax for a while yet at the same time as governments impose more restrictions and taxes that never will be lifted - not even when even the mainstream pundits have left the asylum.
So the biggest scam in human history will continue for a couple of years more. Thank the lord of all that is unholy for the invention of vodka. How else could we sane survive?
