Five years ago snake oil salesman Al Gore predicted the north polar ice cap would be completely ice free in five years.
Gore was a bit off.
Alaska and Greenland are experiencing more ice this year than in the previous record year.
So much for that ice free icecap prediction…
Greenland and Alaska have more ice this year than in the previous record year, 1979.
Don Surber at The Daily Mail reported:
So much for an ice-free Arctic. Henry Hudson’s long-ago dream of a Northwest Passage that would link England to the Orient by sea will have to wait another century as Mother Earth gives him the cold shoulder. Again.
From Real Science: “1979 was the peak year for Arctic ice, yet 2012 has more ice around Greenland and Alaska than 1979 did.”
Same date satellite data seems to show that Iceland and everywhere else is iced over this year when they were feeling a little green 33 years ago.
Of course, our moral and intellectual superiors elsewhere in the press keep banging the drums of Man Caused Global Warming.
Sadly, this still won’t stop the Chicken Littles from pushing their junk science on the rest of us.
