Yet another climate alarmist myth debunked. According to a book by Professor Peter Wadhams, sea ice was supposed to have completely disappeared by mid-decade but measurements show there was 31% more ice this year than in September 2012.
That’s an extra 1.09 million square kilometres of ice and this year, the most rapid refreeze ever recorded has occurred with the ice growing 1.05 million square kilometres in just three weeks.
We’ve been told time and again that doomsday is coming because climate is changing but the only thing these false claims really point to is that changes in climate are unpredictable and erratic.
There’s no denying that sea ice volumes have been declining since 1985, but that doesn’t mean this is a man-made phenomenon or that we should have to pay guilt taxes for it, or that we need to start over worrying.
The climate has been changing for billions of years. And if you look at the trends on the geologic time scale they took hundreds, if not thousands of years to develop.
Many scientists agree that anthropogenic climate change is real but the question is how much do humans contribute to it? That’s an entirely reasonable and level headed stance.
We’re always told that the science is settled on catastrophic climate change, but in reality science is never settled and alarmist arm waving helps nothing.
It looks like we can file the sea ice claim in the discredited folder.
