Climate Change This Week: Record Sea Ice

“There is more sea ice now than there was on this date in 2002.”

Last week we documented the 60% year-over-year expansion in Arctic sea ice and how the overly bad predictions for an ice-free North Pole made back in 2007 failed to come to fruition. The fear mongering was utilized by environmental gurus like Al Gore and then-Senator John Kerry. Yet even as the facts prove otherwise, they remain unfazed.

This week we await whatever explanation they decide to cough up next. The Arctic’s significant ice growth combined with what’s happening in its southern counterpart have resulted in record-high global sea ice. “Earth has gained 19,000 Manhattans of sea ice since this date last year, the largest increase on record,” observes climate blogger Steven Goddard. “There is more sea ice now than there was on this date in 2002.”

Meteorologist Joe Bastardi observes, “Lost in all this is the Southern Hemisphere ice cap which grew to record levels in July. It’s closer to the top of the heap now than the Arctic ice cap is to the bottom.” Is it any surprise really that we have yet to see this being reported anywhere among the mainstream media? Indeed, media lapdogs are doing their best to keep the focus off Antarctica – and for good reason.

After all, it is an agenda that’s at stake. Expect the Left to adopt the economic playbook here: Don’t read too much into one report. But as Bastardi accurately concludes, “If the agenda was based on man-caused global cooling, then you can be sure the Antarctic ice cap would be in the news every day.”
