Question: Is it true that the polar ice caps are melting?
Answer: Wrong. The British Antarctic Survey, working with NASA, last week confirmed ice around Antarctica has grown 100,000 sq km each decade for the past 30 years. There has been no polar ice-cap melting at all!
Long-term monitoring by the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration reports the same: southern hemisphere ice has been expanding for decades.
As for the Arctic, wrong again.
The Arctic ice cap shrank badly during few summers after years of steady decline, but has since recovered to its 1970 levels. Satellite data from NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center this week shows the Arctic hasn't had this much April ice for at least seven years.
Norway's Nansen Environmental and Remote Sensing Center says the ice is now within the standard deviation range for 1979 to 2007. (None of the above-mentioned outfits is sponsored by Big Oil!)
Remember that Albert Gore in his movie used styrofoam and faked film to show the ice melting at what looked like an alarming rate. This was never mentioned in the film, though, and was in fact presented as real.
Since climbing on the warming wagon, Al Gore has made almost $200 million and lives exactly the opposite of the way he says he wants the rest of us to live.
Sadly, millions of innocent, unsuspecting people have been deceived by alarmists of global warming and feel guilty because of humanity's industrial development, finding a reason to consent to ever higher prices of crude oil and natural gas, to compromise on comforts, unlike those who actually initiated the myth of man caused global warming.
