Vanishing Arctic Ice

The following is taken from Christopher Booker's Notebook.

A chilling tale from the North

There is nothing that true believers in global warming like to use more to sustain their faith than a fear that Arctic ice may soon vanish.

Google News last week showed 492 articles promoting this scare, after Arctic sea-ice had last September shrunk to its lowest level since satellite records began in 1979.

What the articles didn't tell us (although it can be seen from the Cryosphere Today website) is that ice-cover last winter rose back at a record rate.

Although it is again in summer retreat, there are now 700,000 square kilometres more ice than at this time last year. As global temperatures decline, the warmists may have to wait rather longer for that ice finally to melt away.
