Remember Pope Albert I of the Church of AGW and all of his acolytes saying that the North Pole would be free of ice by now? Yeah. Me too. Instead, it’s getting thicker.
Satellite data shows that Arctic sea ice is getting thicker as Antarctic sea ice extent continues to expand to near record levels, according to a report issued by the US National Snow and Ice Data Center, in Boulder Colorado, today, 5 February 2014.
Uh oh. Another chink in the armor of AGW.
Satellite data shows that Arctic sea ice was 50 per cent thicker in Autumn 2013 than it was in Autumn 2012, according to the US National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC).
Data from the European Space Agency’s (ESA’s) CryoSat satellite which is equipped to measure the thickness of sea ice using radars shows that Arctic sea ice volumes grew by 50 per cent last year. This is due to an increase in ice thickness, since sea ice extent declined by around 3 per cent.
I can hear it now. Remember how the true believers said that the record cold we are experiencing in the continental US was because warming at the North Pole pushed cold air South? Yep. Me too. Our pet liberal told us that. I guess now that sea ice at the North Pole is thickening, it’s because warm air in the continental US is pushing cold air North and that’s what’s causing the sea ice to thicken.
Remember, to the true believers in the Church of AGW, global warming causes everything.
