Despite Al Gore And Obama Gobal Warming Alarmism, Polar Ice Refuses To Go Away

The Canadian Coast Guard icebreaker Amundsen, assigned to a global warming research mission in the Arctic, was called away from duty last week to help commercial ships navigate the unusually heavy ice in the Hudson Bay – a far cry from the scenario envisioned by Al Gore’s 2009 prediction of an ice-free Arctic by 2014. The episode brings to mind the ill-fated voyage of the Russian ship Akademik Shokalskiy that became stuck in unexpectedly heavy Antarctic ice in December 2013 while on a research mission to the South Pole. It seems Mother Nature is simply not cooperating with the ever-more dire global warming forecasts. A study reported last week that the amount of Arctic sea ice had rebounded by one-third after the cool summer of 2013, erasing the prior three years of sea ice melt. Global sea ice level is on a zero trend for the decade, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. All this is despite atmospheric levels of CO2 being about 8 percent higher over that …
