Satellite Measurements Confirm Arctic Ice Is Increasing Massively

Last Friday marked an important anniversary in the history of the global warming hoax. On that day 5 years ago, Al Gore prophesied that the ice cap at the North Pole would be completely melted in 5 years. Let’s see how that prediction worked out:

The amount of sea ice in the Arctic has increased by close to 50 per cent compared to last year, according to satellite measurements.

ESA’s CryoSat mission revealed that in October this year the Arctic had 9000 cu km of sea ice. This compares to just 6000 cu km in October 2012.

Scientists believe part of this stronger performance is due to a greater retention of older ice.

It isn’t a 1-year fluke.

The CryoSat-2 satellite was designed to measure sea-ice thickness across the entire Arctic Ocean, and has allowed scientists, for the first time, to monitor the overall change in volume accurately.

Scientists claim around 90 per cent of the increase is due to growth of multi-year ice – which survives through more than one summer without melting – with only 10 per cent growth of first year ice.

They claim that thick, multi-year ice indicates healthy Arctic sea-ice cover.

This year’s multi-year ice is now on average about 20 per cent, or around 30 cm, thicker than last year.

Worldwide carbon emissions have been soaring. According to the theory on behalf of which we are expected to sacrifice our liberty and our standard of living, the ice should be melting away, just like the Goracle bellowed that it would.

The problem with predicting doom in the relatively near future is that when the doom doesn’t come, everyone who isn’t an utter fool will laugh at you. But everyone who isn’t an utter fool has been laughing at Gore since long before 2008 anyway, so he didn’t have much to lose.

Meanwhile, Obama continues to exploit the debunked hoax to advance his authoritarian collectivist agenda. This month he brought in hard left Clintonista John Podesta of the Center for American Progress to drive through draconian measures that will supposedly control the climate by “executive authority.”

It is as if liberals live in a world where objective facts have no relevance.

Al Gore Doom
If only the end of the hoax were in sight.

    Obama promised that he would make ocean levels lower. I’m thinking that this is happening because we all took his advice and inflated our tires properly! What crap!

    Remember, if you will, King Canute. His court officials (suckophants)were tripping all over themselves to try to out-flatter each other. Some said that the king was so powerful he could command the tides. To show them how wrong they were he went down to the shore, with them in tow, and commanded the tide to retreat–it didn’t.

    Obama does not have the humility that King Canute did.

    And to this day poor old King Canute takes it on the chin for trying to command the tides.

    With the obvious and growing weakness of the republican party, the almost MIA status of the Tea Party, and with hardly any protest from the Right, the Left is going for broke. There is now no limit to the amount of force, lies, manipulation, and disinformation they will use to push their radical agenda. Choosing a radical Leftist like Podesta makes that stunningly obvious.

    Globull Warming? I’m getting the F’ out of here and going for a swim!

    I hope someone sends this news to the LA Times who will no longer print letters disputing the global warming hoax.

    Marxist propaganda is all the media will publish from here on. All we need to fix this problem is a clear field of fire.

  6. The US Govt spent hundreds of millions to put that sat up there just for the purpose of proving this moon bat idea that the ice caps are shrinking. OOPS.

    But it goes to show that the taxpayers are going to get fleeced either way.

    I dont blame tippler one bit for getting a divorce from that eco-maniac

    The end of Al Gore is in sight.

  9. Press Watch says:

    Watch him commit suicide

    OR Stop him if he tries ??

    I don’t understand
