Years of screeching from liberals that the planet is doomed because of global warming have been a good indication of cold weather ahead. Sure enough:
A cold Arctic summer has led to a record increase in the ice cap, leading experts to predict a period of global cooling.
There has been a 60 per cent increase in the amount of ocean covered with ice compared to this time last year, the equivalent of almost a million square miles. …
The Northwest Passage from the Atlantic to the Pacific has remained blocked by pack-ice all year, forcing some ships to change their routes.
A leaked report to the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) seen by the Mail on Sunday, has led some scientists to claim that the world is heading for a period of cooling that will not end until the middle of this century.
If correct, it would contradict computer forecasts of imminent catastrophic warming. The news comes several years after the BBC predicted that the arctic would be ice-free by 2013.
Even at the risk of endangering lucrative government grants, some academics have been forced to acknowledge the obvious:
Professor Anastasios Tsonis, of the University of Wisconsin, said: “We are already in a cooling trend, which I think will continue for the next 15 years at least. There is no doubt the warming of the 1980s and 1990s has stopped.”
Yet the United Nations remains mired in denial of the global warming crisis’s catastrophic collapse:
The IPCC says it is “95 per cent confident” that global warming has been caused by humans — up from 90 per cent in 2007 — according to the draft report.
Comparably resilient to reality, the Obama Regime will goosestep forward with plans to use the EPA to cripple the economy in the name of a debunked hoax.
