The Arctic ice pack has expanded dramatically despite years of doom-laden predictions that it was melting away for good.
British scientists discovered that it grew by more than 40 percent in 2013 thanks to cooler than expected temperatures, and say they were shocked at the speed of recovery in such a short time.
Three years ago Professor Peter Wadhams of Cambridge University forecast that the Arctic would be ice free by 2015 – or 2016 at the latest. And Al Gore made strong claims that the caps would disappear by 2014.
In 2007, 2008 and 2009, Gore publicly and very hysterically warned that the North Pole would be “ice-free” by around 2013 because of alleged ‘man-made global warming.
The government-funded BBC ran an article under the headline: ‘Arctic summers ice-free ‘by 2013’.’ Other establishment media outlets did the same.
Now Gore and his “climate scientist” friends have egg all over their faces — big time.
Not only is the Arctic ice pack growing, at the other end of the planet, NASA reports that sea ice in the Antarctic is at its greatest extent since records began in 1979.
The UCL researchers found that Arctic ice increased in volume by 41 percent two years ago when the Arctic summer had some of the coolest temperatures since the late 1990s.
Study leader Rachel Tilling admitted: “We were quite surprised by the findings.”
