Ice Caps are growing, what???

Ice Caps are growing, what??? 


Global warming? No, actually we're cooling, claim scientists
A cold Arctic summer has led to a record increase in the ice cap, leading experts to predict a period of global cooling.

There has been a 60 per cent increase in the amount of ocean covered with ice compared to this time last year, they equivalent of almost a million square miles.

In a rebound from 2012's record low an unbroken ice sheet more than half the size of Europe already stretches from the Canadian islands to Russia's northern shores, days before the annual re-freeze is even set to begin.

The Northwest Passage from the Atlantic to the Pacific has remained blocked by pack-ice all year, forcing some ships to change their routes.

A leaked report to the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) seen by the Mail on Sunday, has led some scientists to claim that the world is heading for a period of cooling that will not end until the middle of this century.

If correct, it would contradict computer forecasts of imminent catastrophic warming. The news comes several years after the BBC predicted that the arctic would be ice-free by 2013.

Where were the tornados this spring?

Where are the hurricanes this summer and fall?

I hope is does cool some. I'm getting too old for this heat sh!t.

You guys are too late...the debate has been over for years. It doesn't matter anyway, they changed it to climate change several years ago just to insure they are right no matter which way it goes.

I'm assuming this is due to corrective measures initiated by Al Gore.

You can change the name, but it doesn't change the theory that increased CO2 = increased temperatures.

The reason for the change to 'climate change' is due to the fact the melting of polar ice will have different meanings for different areas. Example, melting of polar ice causes cooler waters to float into the gulf stream and making it cooler. Which will cool the termpeature of Ireland/England/Scotland. But the overall statement that the poles would warm never changed. If the poles are re-freezing, then the theory has a major issue.

Re-freezing of poles means water levels will not continue to increase. Means cooling of major water bodies of water will not continue.

I know these are not your words mall but there are some enormous holes in this logic.
