Arctic ice cap grows
60% in one year

American Thinker, by Rick Moran

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 9/8/2013 10:44:08 AM

A much cooler than expected summer has caused more than a million square miles of ocean to be covered in ice this year - a 60% increase from August, 2012. See for yourself (snip)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.

I´m sure this collingis caused by global warming. It´s no doubt the pendulum swing of wild weather that occurs when the earth is heated so badly.

While touring Hoover Dam a Native American tour guide explained the indentations on the wall of the river feeding the dam as "...sometimes we get a lot of rain, other years we do not, we call it cycles..." Questioned further, she said everything occurs in cycles, no such thing as global warming. Just as this year, fewer tornadoes, fewer hurricanes, more ice at the poles. It´s called cycles.

When that ice keeps on growing, and we appear to be going in to the Ice Age we are overdue for, the leftists will be telling us that it´s caused by too much CO2 cooling the earth. The only solution is to de-industrialize and hand over power to them to manage our lives... no matter what happens

Children were taught that the Ice Ages came and went. In New England, I sit on sixty to eighty feet of sand and gravel under the topsoil. It was deposited by glaciers. Kids in school know this so I ask them, "What deposited it?" and they eagerly answer "Glaciers". Then I ask, "What happened to the glaciers?" and the eagerly answer "They melted". So I ask the last question that stymies them, "If we were not around to melt the mile thick glacier last time, why do you think we have anything to do with what may be happening now?". Warming/Cooling may be happening but only Simon Bar Sinister can control the weather and if the weather man can´t tell me with 100% certainty what next Thursady is going to look like, no one can tell me what one hundred years from now will look like. Hubris.

I think Dick Cheney gave the most accurate and supportive prediction of global warming.

He accurately predicted that a warming period would start called summer which would be followed by a noticeably cooler period called winter.

Kudos to Cheney for using his crystal ball and finally someone with the guts to us like it really is.

Oh, now I don´t know about that #11. The scientists in the early 1970´s predicted a rather serious cooling trend set to happen about 2 years ago.
And it is continuing. Now if ManBearPig had only gone with them instead of the warming junk, I would have believed him.
As to the apparent disappearance of the MBPman, I think that just enforces the fact that God does have a sense of humor. It is mighty, pre-seasonally cold in central and upper Alaska right now.

Global warming was to take a century to make the planet drastically different. Now global cooling changes global warming in a year that is part of a 16-year period called a "pause."

A million square miles of ice, where there was none, looks more like a reversal than a pause. A serious reversal. A totally upsetting reversal, akin to a revolution in weather which of course is to climate as a tornado to a super cell.

Hence one wonders why global warming wasn´t a pause in a larger scheme of global cooling, rather than the opposite. After all, global cooling has hard proof on its side while global warming only has politics, corrupt money and arrogance.

The issue can be welfare,drugs, education.....doesn´t matter.

They destroy everything they touch in an endless power grab.

But.....like the dog chasing the car, when they gain power they use it Stoooopidly.

No. 25. After several decades of subscribing to National Geographic, I canceled my subscription during the last election cycle when they insisted on airing a pro-Zero documentary the Sunday before Election Day in 2012.
For the last several years nearly every article mentioned or had a link to man-made global warming. If I wanted propaganda I would subscribe to the Washington Post or Baltimore Sun...which I don´t. Political agenda mixed with science is a bitter brew.

Two Climate Scientists up here in Alaska just completed a large "woe is me" study about Global Warming destroying the Arctic food chain. But in the last paragraph of their report, as presented in the papers up here, we get this:

Despite a general warming and greening of Arctic lands in North America, some areas in northern Russia and along the Bering Sea coast of Alaska are showing recent cooling trends and declines in vegetation productivity. "We don´t know why," Bhatt said.

They just don´t know why.

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

Funny question in the headline, yes? But since President Obama worries more about the threat of terrorists´ improvised nuclear device going off in a major American city than anything Russia can throw at us, I was wondering if the government had deigned to share with us citizens any tips for, you know, surviving something their own intelligence points to as the likeliest unlikely Black Swan event. Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem.
