Arctic ice is back!

Ice coverage in the Arctic region is currently almost back to the 1991-2020 average, well above a 2012 low point and higher than 2020.

    According to the latest report from the EU’s Earth observation programme Copernicus, the 2021 March sea ice area was just 3 percent below the 30 year average. March is the annual maximum coverage of sea ice in the Arctic.

    The news has not changed the mainstream climate change narrative. In 2009, climate alarmist former US vice president Al Gore predicted that the North Pole would be ice free by 2013. The BBC Future Planet site in 2020 claimed that much of the ice was said to be “rapidly vanishing” and wanted to sprinkle the area with glass.

    Geological records show that the Earth has often been ice free. While climate alarmists maintain that the rate of change is a concern, the historical record suggests similar rates of change have been noted before.

    In 1816, it was observed by The Royal Society that “2000 square leagues [a league is three miles] of ice with which the Greenland Seas between latitudes of 74° and 80°N have been hitherto covered, has in the last two years entirely disappeared”.

    The UK government’s Chief Scientific Adviser Sir Patrick Vallance has been trying to scare the public with a number of extreme weather models and junk science, stating that Arctic sea ice was headed for a “tipping point”. By the end of 2021, the COP26 invitees were told that there was just “one minute to midnight” on the doomsday clock.

      Climate Alarmists are a pack of Chicken Littles with a exception, they make money panicking the rest of us about things we are not in control of nor ever will be.

      Micro-organisms have more control of the climate and atmosphere than we do – perhaps we should make friends? And by that I dont mean genetically modifying them to do what we think is best for us. They run the ecosphere, and our bodies, by the way.
