Arctic Ice Growing Rapidly

“This was also one of the earliest minimums on record, indeed the earliest since 1997. This is a good indication of just how cold it is in the Arctic at the moment.”

Weren’t we assured, under one of the principal tenets of CO2-induced global warming theory, that “polar amplification” would be the most obvious fingerprint of increased CO2 emissions? 🤔

Record cold and expanding ice down at the other pole, Antarctica, needs a theory check too perhaps!

NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT

It is now safe to confirm that the minimum Arctic sea ice extent has now been passed this year, with an area of 4.083 million sq km on 7th September.

This is 22% greater than in 2012, despite two major storms in August that led to break up of ice.

The ice has been regrowing remarkably rapidly for the last week, and already stands above the start of the month. Tentatively, we may be seeing one of the fastest September growths on record.

This was also one of the earliest minimums on record, indeed the earliest since 1997. This is a good indication of just how cold it is in the Arctic at the moment.

Already, ice extent is above that of 2007 on the same date, as well as 2012.

Sarkozy the latest and not the last.

“Sahara has become a desert, it isn’t because of industry. You need to be as arrogant as men are to believe we changed the climate.” — Sarkozy, The Local, 15 September 2016

Quite.

Watts Up With That?

Presidential hopeful Nicolas Sarkozy reckons that climate change is not caused by man [alone] and that the world has far bigger problems on its hands than global warming.

Presidential hopeful Nicolas Sarkozy reckons that climate change is not caused by man and that the world has far bigger problems on its hands than global warming. Nicolas Sarkozy, who is fighting to regain the presidency that he lost to François Hollande in 2012, has finally come out of the closet as a climate skeptic. Speaking in front of business leaders Sarkozy, a candidate for Les Republicains party primary in November, told them that man alone was not to blame for climate change. “Climate has been changing for four billion years,” the former president said according to AFP. “Sahara has become a desert, it isn’t because of industry. You need to be as arrogant as men are to believe we changed the…
