"Arctic Sea Ice Melt Season Officially Over; ice up over 9% from last year

Watts Up With That?
Wednesday, Sept 17, 2008

We have news from the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC). They say: The melt is over. And we’ve added 9.4% ice coverage from this time last year. Though it appears NSIDC is attempting to downplay this in their web page announcement today, one can safely say that despite irrational predictions seen earlier this year, we didn’t reach an “ice free north pole” nor a new record low for sea ice extent.

Here is the current sea ice extent graph from NSIDC as of today, notice the upturn, which has been adding ice now for 5 days:


It will be interesting to see what they offer in the October press release. Plus we’ll be watching how much ice we add this winter, and what next year’s melt season will look like. Hopefully we won’t have a new crop of idiots like Lewis Gordon Pugh trying to reach the “ice free north pole” next year.

Nevertheless, we get this scitte shoveled by the globalist U.N.!


"Global network necessary to confront climate change crisis, says Ban

Global warming “is less in the news than last year,” Mr. Ban said at a service held at the Holy Family Church in New York. “Yet the evidence is all around that the problem is worse than most projections.”

The phenomenon is also spurring humanitarian crises, such as Cyclone Nargis in Myanmar and hunger in Haiti and the Horn of Africa, he added. --MORE--"

What an INCREDIBLE LIAR Mr. Ban is, huh?

Yeah, that just makes me angry so I'll move along.
