Global cooling? The beginning of a New Mini Ice Age? Remember when some in the global warming community said that the North Pole will be free of ice in summer by 2013. Kinda hard to do during a mini ice age, isn’t it?
So what does the global warming crowd have to say about this? Well of course every one knows that global warming causes global cooling and vice versa. Heaven forbid it actuality all just be environmental climate patters.
According to the US National Snow and Ice Data Centre in Colorado, Arctic summer sea ice has increased by 409,000 square miles, or 26 per cent, since 2007 – and even the most committed global warming activists do not dispute this.
Wasn’t it just recently that some of the global warming crowd commented on this site that the cold weather that we were recently experiencing had nothing to do with global cooling, it was just cold weather temperatures. Looks like you were incorrect.
The bitter winter afflicting much of the Northern Hemisphere is only the start of a global trend towards cooler weather that is likely to last for 20 or 30 years, say some of the world’s most eminent climate scientists.
Last night he told The Mail on Sunday: ‘A significant share of the warming we saw from 1980 to 2000 and at earlier periods in the 20th Century was due to these cycles – perhaps as much as 50 per cent.
‘They have now gone into reverse, so winters like this one will become much more likely. Summers will also probably be cooler, and all this may well last two decades or longer.
‘The extreme retreats that we have seen in glaciers and sea ice will come to a halt. For the time being, global warming has paused, and there may well be some cooling.’
