Arctic Ice Increasing.

Could this be true, could Al Gore be wrong, and guilty of fear mongering?

Antarctic Sea Ice Growing Despite Global Warming Warnings

The weather continues to embarrass the global warming quacks. I wonder if Al Gore has been able to sell as many so-called carbon offsets lately.

RP, there's a difference between sea ice and continental ice.

Continental ice is not increasing.

interesting. ICE LEVELS (SEA AND LAND ARE IN BALANCE SINCE 1955)

USGS Fact Sheet 2009?3046: Fifty-Year Record of Glacier Change Reveals Shifting Climate in the Pacific Northwest and Alaska, USA Notice US Government source...

Conclusions

The net mass balance of a glacier is the difference between the mass gain through accumulation of snow and the mass loss through ablation. A glacier that is in balance with the current climate will have zero net balance and a steady size.

No one who knows AGW is a hoax will read this, but increasing sea ice does not mean the planet is cooling off.

Climate change is getting worse. So why is Antarctica’s sea ice expanding?

I'm not sold on AGW and i read the article. The problem with the argument in convincing other people about it's validity starts at the very beginning and has confounded it ever since. The approach has been all wrong and right from the very beginning. It's been tainted by politics (Thanks to Gore), sensational alarmists reporting, a lack of clear... transparent... objective... scientific inquiry and the aggressive push of people into making a rushed judgement that they yet can't comprehend. We have a rough idea of the sh!tty clusterf*ck the latter can cause.

This is not too say that i deny the globe might be warming, it could be. And if so, is it man made, a natural cycle or being caused by a external source. Nothing is clear yet.
Thanks from roastpork and coke

LOL

Now the semantics about sea ice, which is at record levels, regardless of the games. And not all that long ago all the AGW crowd could do was trumpet sea ice decline.

As far as sheet ice, Antarctica has been losing it for centuries, and parts of the ice sheet sit atop massive volcanic regions and the resulting heat. Indeed tracks of ice falling off into the sea are clearly delineated by scientists. Been a long process.

Quite true!!! Warm may mean cold is coming...and vice versa! Look at NZ and how far south it is. But it's warm and balmy. That's the Great Ocean Conveyor at work...
