In 2007, when Al Gore accepted the Nobel Peace Prize (pause for laughter), he said this:

Last September 21, as the Northern Hemisphere tilted away from the sun, scientists reported with unprecedented distress that the North Polar ice cap is “falling off a cliff.” One study estimated that it could be completely gone during summer in less than 22 years. Another new study, to be presented by U.S. Navy researchers later this week, warns it could happen in as little as 7 years.

Seven years from now.

Seven years later:

And when the Goracle saw the breadth of the contradictory evidence, he wept, for there were no more worlds to fear monger into carbon credit shams (h/t Hans Gruber):

The Mail on Sunday can reveal that, far from vanishing, the Arctic ice cap has expanded for the second year in succession – with a surge, depending on how you measure it, of between 43 and 63 per cent since 2012.

To put it another way, an area the size of Alaska, America’s biggest state, was open water two years ago, but is again now covered by ice.

The most widely used measurements of Arctic ice extent are the daily satellite readings issued by the US National Snow and Ice Data Center, which is co-funded by Nasa. These reveal that – while the long-term trend still shows a decline – last Monday, August 25, the area of the Arctic Ocean with at least 15 per cent ice cover was 5.62 million square kilometres.

This was the highest level recorded on that date since 2006 (see graph, right), and represents an increase of 1.71 million square kilometres over the past two years – an impressive 43 per cent.

Wow, it’s almost as if these things tend to be naturally cyclical.

Those on Gore’s side, who have adjusted on the fly and are now saying global warming climate change global climate disruption is making things colder, will draw that ice cap uptick into infinity and predict that if something isn’t done the entire world will be covered in ice within six years:

Behold the hockey stick of the future.
