ARCTIC ICE GREW BY 30% – GLOBAL COOLING?
Part 1: U.N.'s Report On Climate Change To Come Out ~ Arctic ice this summer is 30% greater than last summer. In September, the National Snow and Ice Data Center reported that the average amount of Arctic sea ice for the month of August was about 6.09 million square kilometers or 2.35 million square miles. That's up from the August 2012 average of 4.71 million square kilometers or 1.82 million square miles (the all-time low was made on September 16, 2012 when the sea ice dropped to 3.42 million square kilometers or 1.32 million square miles; read our August 27, 2012 article and its updates: "Arctic Ice Melts To Lowest Level Ever" ). And it didn't take long for certain right-wing media outlets such as the Daily Mail tabloid (UK) and Fox News to go on their usual insane rants about Global Warming being a hoax. ~ Lou Dobbs says there is significant Global Cooling...Really?

And according to scientists, the situation is still very dire for the Arctic in the long run. As of September 16th of this year, the Arctic ice extent has shrunk to 5.10 million kilometers (2.00 million square miles), click here . The Arctic ice this summer is far below average in surface area compared to other years since rec...
