In Antarctica, sea-ice levels just smashed through the previous record highs. There is now more ice than at any point since records began.
In the Arctic, where global warming hoaxers prefer to keep the public focused since the Antarctic ice has been growing, scientists said sea-ice melt in 2014 fell below the long-term mean.
It is rumored that Al Gore is banging his head against the wall at his oceanfront property in Hawaii! Maybe he is worried about sea levels lowering and someone building in front of him.
The Principia-Scientific reports:
The most recent data show that the Antarctic is currently surrounded by more sea ice than at any other point since records began. In all, there are right now about 20 million square kilometers of frozen sea area surrounding the Antarctic continent. That is 170,000 square kilometers more than last year’s previous all-time record, and more than 1.2 million square kilometers above the 1981-to-2010 mean, according to researchers.
“This is an area covered by sea ice which we’ve never seen from space before,” meteorologist and sea ice scientist Jan Lieser with the Antarctic Climate and Ecosystems Cooperative Research Centre (CRC) told Australia’s ABC. “Thirty-five years ago the first satellites went up which were reliably telling us what area, two dimensional area, of sea ice was covered and we’ve never seen that before, that much area. That is roughly double the size of the Antarctic continent and about three times the size of Australia.”
Another key tactic of the warmists to deflect attention from the expanding polar ice in the Southern Hemisphere has been to hype changes occurring in the Arctic instead. Unfortunately for the alarmists, however — critics often ridicule the movement as a “cult” for desperately clinging to its beliefs despite the evidence, not to mention the “Climategate” scandal — that will now be much harder to do with a straight face.
“After the very high melt rates of the 2007-2012 period, the trend reversed in 2013 and especially in 2014 when the melt fell below the long-term average,” explained German professor and environment expert Fritz Vahrenholt, adding that the heat content of the North Atlantic was also plummeting. “In other words: The 21st century climate catastrophe is not taking place.”
Decades ago, of course, Newsweek reported that Arctic ice was growing so quickly due to man-made “global cooling” that “scientists” were proposing to melt the polar ice cap using black soot. Fortunately, cooler heads prevailed. More recently, “climate” guru Al Gore had been regularly predicting that the entire polar ice cap would be gone by now. Instead, it is now far more extensive than when he made his now-discredited predictions.
Of course, the whole issue is rather mute as Archimedes explained 2000 years ago that ice displaces water!
In a nutshell, as the Arctic Sea Ice has already displaced the sea water it sits in, the whole thing could melt and the sea levels would not rise! Bulgaria’s new Environment and Water Minister explains. Neno Dimov, appeared in a video describing global warming as a fraud and alleging that the European Union’s target for reducing emissions is intended to earn billions for business.
“There is a law of nature, discovered by Archimedes more than 2000 years ago, that a body immersed in water, displaces the volume of water of the volume of the body itself. The ice of the North Pole already has sunk into the world ocean and increased its level with that volume, of the ice itself.”
“We note that the European Commission has recently come up with a plan in which environmental protection is not an end in itself, but must be looked at also in the way it is received by people living in the regions and by businesses,” Dimov said.
Dimov is on to something here. Why don’t we concentrate on the real environmental issues, instead of messing around with this stupid global warming hoax designed to redistribute wealth?
It’s because there is no money in that! Al Gore has become a billionaire on the back of the global warming hoax. Socialism has thrived, taking money from the rich and giving it to the poor in the name of saving the world from immediate disaster.
Global Warming is a hoax folks. The left will tell you I hate science. No, science is what proves it’s all a hoax. What I hate is the manipulated data that the left uses to pusue the greatest con job ever.
