Well, it seems global warming skeptics have won another battle in the climate wars.  The Arctic ice cap grew by 920,000 square miles since last year.  That’s a 60% increase in just one year.  So, with this development, can we say that Earth is undergoing a period of global cooling?  It’s ironic.  Global cooling is exactly what scientists said about the earth’s temperature in the 1970s.  The hypothesis was basis of the 1975 Newsweek article called “The Cooling World,” where it was suggested that we stock up of food stuffs for the pending shortages worldwide.  It never happened.

Additionally, on the wild weather front, we’ve had the quietest tornado season in sixty years.  Should we be surprised?  No.  Global temperatures have stagnated for the past sixteen years according to the UK Meteorological Office.  Yet, let’s look at the growth in the Arctic ice cap.

A chilly Arctic summer has left nearly a million more square miles of ocean covered with ice than at the same time last year – an increase of 60 per cent.

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.

The Northwest Passage from the Atlantic to the Pacific has remained blocked by pack-ice all year. More than 20 yachts that had planned to sail it have been left ice-bound and a cruise ship attempting the route was forced to turn back.

Some eminent scientists now believe the world is heading for a period of cooling that will not end until the middle of this century – a process that would expose computer forecasts of imminent catastrophic warming as dangerously misleading.

Hopefully, liberals can you see why we don’t trust them with a multi-trillion dollar investment to curb something that isn’t even within the realm of our control – and is a natural occurrence on our planet.

BBC said in 2007 that there could be no ice in the Arctic by 2013.  Sorry, folks, but the charade is over.

I just cannot stand manipulation. Especially when an attempted of manipulation is soooo obvious like this. This article, this journalist is just twisting around the results of NASA studies and making some totally fake conclusion. DO NOT LISTEN TO ANYONE WITHOUT TAKING A DEEPER LOOK AT THE BACKGROUND. Here is an article, what u should read to figure out the truth:

'it is easy to stop funding the research'.

ahhh, if it were only true. lawyers love to spend other people's $$$, even 'pubs. right now the American working person is funding hundreds, if not thousands of things almost everybody would consider stupid and wasteful, if they only knew. global warming spending is just one of them. odumbocare is another. bridge(s) to nowhere - high speed trains nobody will ride - free phones for everybody - and on and on...

historical evidence suggests global climate change temp ranges go up and down for reasons still unknown and unproven, followed by the ice flows and the oceans. recent findings show many ancient structures exist right off the coasts of some countries, like egypt, india, france, and many more. physical evidence suggests the pace of that change can be dramatic as well. for instance, I read where a mammoth was found frozen w/ subtropical plants still in its stomach.

of course, being wrong and doubling down on stupid stuff, like his recent 'global warming is settled science' pronouncement, is right in barry's wheelhouse, isn't it? and sadly, major tax $$ will still be wasted on it.

the only unanswered question is how this early and extremely cold weather will wind up being bush's fault?

It's difficult to prove fraud, but it is easy to stop funding the research.
