Growing ice cap contradicts global warming

Email

Ten years ago environmentalists claimed by the year 2013 all the northern ice cap would be gone. Actually, from the year 2012 to 2013 the northern ice cap has increased by 60 percent. This is according to an environmental researcher, Dr. Gammon.

Six years ago the BBC cited climate scientists in predicting that the Arctic would be free of ice by the summer of 2013. Instead, Arctic ice this August covered nearly a million square miles more of ocean than in August 2012. 

This has led Britain’s Mail on Sunday to report, “Some eminent scientists now believe the world is heading for a period of cooling that will not end until the middle of the century — a process that would expose computer forecasts of imminent catastrophic warming as dangerously misleading.”

They also asserted that global warming has paused since the beginning of 1997.

They go on to say that predictions of ever-increasing global warming have made many of the world’s economies divert billions of dollars into “green measures” to counter climate change. These predictions now appear gravely flawed.

Arctic ice now extends from Canada’s northern islands to Russia’s northern shore, thus blocking the Northwest Passage and leaving numerous boats ice bound.

Professor Anastauos of the University of Wisconsin, who has investigated ocean cycles, said, “We are already in a cooling trend, which I think will continue for the next 15 years at least. There is no doubt the warming of the 1980s and 1990s has stopped.”

So now why would any logical human support a carbon tax to fight global warming? The tax will only give more money to the crooks in Washington to waste your money and do nothing to prevent human-caused global warming, if it ever exists.
