Polar Ice Cap Has Increased by Over 900,000 Square Miles

Written by Gary North on September 9, 2013

The London Daily Mail has some fun with the tax-funded BBC, which in 2007 predicted the disappearance of the polar ice cap. Over the last year, the polar ice cap has increased by over 900,000 square miles.

A chilly Arctic summer has left nearly a million more square miles of ocean covered with ice than at the same time last year – an increase of 60 per cent.

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.

Instead, days before the annual autumn re-freeze is due to begin, an unbroken ice sheet more than half the size of Europe already stretches from the Canadian islands to Russia’s northern shores.

The BBC had seriously in 2007 reported the prediction of a scientist with a politically correct agenda and a bad computer model.

The global warmers are now living in the shadow of 15 years with no global warming. They have had to change the name of their movement to “climate change.” This presents a problem. Getting voters scared enough to promote anti-growth policies in the name of climate change is not easy. Climates change all the time. “If you don’t like the weather, wait five minutes” is a familiar regional saying in many regions.

Now the weather has made the forecast of some academically certified global warmer look really silly in retrospect. The Daily Mail reminds people of just how badly the BBC got sucked in by a truly preposterous prediction.

That’s the trouble with the Web. It leaves a record that is easy to trace.

The global warming movement is losing steam. The movement has become fair game for skeptics to have fun at its expense. This is not going to change.

  1. Al baby, are you catching this latest little tidbit of reality? Sure you are, but you will either ignore it or spin it! You are such a pu

  2. And a truly interesting thing to me is that Michael Crichton in State of Fear predicted as much that Global Warming would be changed to Climate Change.

  3. Seymour Kleerly says:

    Why do Conservatives fight so hard for the GREEDY polluters?

    • After Al Gore selling out to Al Jazeera, who is greedy?

      • I think Seymour is an obamahead, a plant to distract..

        Dems are the greedy but no one talks about the filthy rich liberals like Clinton,
        Kerry, Reid, Pelosi,, and the list goes on!!! They all pollute like an essobee!!

        • Seymour Kleerly says:

          By calling me a plant, does that mean no opposing opinions allowed? You can't or shouldn't want to remain in a total Fox News/ Talk Radio alternative universe. Also, I'm referring to Industry polluters not individuals.

          • Texas Chris says:

            In a private property system, pollution is controlled based on remuneration for damages and lost property value. Not so in the current EPA system, which is designed specifically to protect polluters and enrich the regulating bureaucracy.

            Don't like pollution? Get the government out of the pollution regulation business.

          • Seymour Kleerly says:

            Do you actually believe that Industry would effectively police itself? Profit is the only thing that matters to them.

          • "Get the government out of the pollution regulation business."

            If only the government had done its job: you and I pay enormous taxes so federal agencies like the Minerals Management Bureau (which was supposed to be monitoring operations like the Deepwater Horizon rig) ensure that private industries like BP are doing scheduled maintenance.

            Instead, the MMB regulators were surfing porn sites on their taxpayer-paid laptops, doing recreational drugs, accepting "gifts" from those industries Seymour rants about, even allowing BP employees to fill out their own inspection reports. The result was the acoustical blowout preventers at Deepwater were 4 years past their scheduled maintenance, the rig exploded and sank, creating an ecological disaster that will last for generations.

            That' s what your honest government and selfless public servants do with your tax dollars.

      • Seymour Kleerly says:

        Nice convincing answer! I see Right Wing Propaganda has worked perfectly on you!

        • If the Army suppliers could just replicate the density of liberal heads for the soldiers body armor, they would be invulnerable. Nothing penetrates a liberal's head. They have perfect deflection.

    • Nancy Pelosi says:

      Are you suggesting conservatives went out to the arctic to add almost 1 million square miles of ice just so polluters could keep polluting?

      See more, nuclear radiation from Japan and GMO pollution are far more worrisome problems that the world needs to deal with. Let's stop wasting resources on the planet temperature.

      • Seymour Kleerly says:

        No I'm saying that it's probably Oil Industry funded research. At best, it's fighting for Greed Over People.

        • Texas Chris says:

          There is either a Europe-sized sheet of ice where there usually is water, or there is not. Funding for the research is immaterial.

          • Seymour Kleerly says:

            It can be either a lie or very deceptive. Or possibly true but a blip on the graph of an ever depressing situation. It's what Industry and it's Conservative defenders have done for over a century.

          • The evidence is from satellite images, controlled by a variety of governments and corporations. We need to face the fact that global warming was nothing but an epic false alarm.

    • Why do Progressives fight so hard for Corporate Welfare but only for "Politically Correct" Corporations?

    • They are not "greedy polluters" as you call them—which is you as well. Conservation is the answer and not crony green (non) capitalism). As time goes on people will naturally gravitate towards more inexpensive and more efficient ways of doing things without the government stealing money from hard pressed families just trying hard to pay their bills and make ends meet as they raise their children and grandchildren. Wake up up you easily fooled subject and understand the truth that the bureaucrats / politicians are finding more ways to raise taxes for their cronies.

  4. Ooooooo, I just hate it when Nature happens! That a politician is world spokesman for the carbonazis rather than a scientist is all you need to know about the "human caused global warming" hoax.

    Side note: a member of the special effects team that produced "The Day After Tomorrow", the Roland Emmerich environmental doomsday popcorn thriller, said some cgi disaster scenes from the movie were lifted without attribution and put in Al Gore's "An Inconvenient Truth" agit-prop film and presented as scientific fact, when it was nothing but pure Hollywood computer-generated fantasy!

    Be sure to spread that information far and wide so the world knows the global warming cultists are plagiarists as well as flunking Science 101. ;)

  5. Atlanta Tea Party 'founder' Jenny Beth Martin's latest fundraiser E-Mail hit my Inbox with "You Can Be A Hero" as Subject heading. Today Americans are so thoroughly brainwashed with the 'Hero' fetish nearly half its workers eat 'Hero' sandwiches for lunch. The 'War on Drugs' has left the United States with more heroines than heroin. Harvard Professor Tom Lehrer lectured about it 50 years ago at SIMPTE marker 01:38 of http://youtu.be/kTKn1aSOyOs

  6. So? HolyShirt, what exactly was it that Jenny Beth Martin was talking about in this "be a Hero" article? I joined up with Tea Party Patriots when it first came out ,but later dropped them because all I got for my donations where requests for more money without any acknowlegement of my donations, even after sending a letter to them. They never replied or communicated anything to me personally. I now support other tea party groups instead. Global warmists are out for more control over Americans and our $$$ through regulations and erroneous laws. Has nothing to do with the planet getting warmer, unless you are standing too claose to Al Gore. Plenty of Hot Air there!

  7. WhiteFalcon says:

    This does an excellent job of showing the fraud of the so called global warming that isn't going on. Al Gore and the rest of those fools are all frauds, and so are the Government officials that support them.

  8. cynthia swope-cobb says:

    It may be a fraud about global warming but as a person who lives close to nature i do still see the efects of polution on my environment so what if its to hot or cold it is gonna rain shine or snow the world is still turning and life keeps moving forward even if people dont i was never pro anything these thing are just fads but taking a nature hike and finding a two headed snake will let u know things arnt normal i get my water from a well and i want to know that im drinking a chemical that i didnt have anything with putting their
