Well, here it is. I’m not saying I told you so. It seems that global warming is not the problem now, but instead global_cooling. Excerpts from the article:
Snow cover over North America and much of Siberia, Mongolia and China is greater than at any time since 1966.
And remember the Arctic Sea ice? The ice we were told so hysterically last fall had melted to its “lowest levels on record? Never mind that those records only date back as far as 1972 and that there is anthropological and geological evidence of much greater melts in the past.
The ice is back.
Gilles Langis, a senior forecaster with the Canadian Ice Service in Ottawa, says the Arctic winter has been so severe the ice has not only recovered, it is actually 10 to 20 cm thicker in many places than at this time last year.
But it is comforting to know that at least we don’t have to learn a new way of coping with it–according to the European Union, the same steps we have been using to combat global warming should work equally well against global cooling. Now, isn’t that interesting? Could that be because they were having precious little effect anyway? No, surely not.
A thought-provoking question is raised by Constance_Cumbey. (Scroll down to Sun, Mar 2–the Iceman Cometh) How does this tie into national security? Might it be played up so as to create an excuse for building of armies? Curious how all of these seemingly unrelated things might be related after all, as this world winds down.
