    MOST AMOUNT OF ICE EVER RECORDED!!!!!




    "Antarctic sea ice set another record this past week, with the most amount of ice ever recorded on day 256 of the calendar year (September 12 of this leap year). Please, nobody tell the mainstream media or they might have to retract some stories and admit they are misrepresenting scientific data."


    Antarctic Sea Ice Sets Another Record - Forbes



    Oooooooops.............talk about k00k losing!!!!:D:D:fu::fu: Nothing more to say..........this blows up the tens of thousands of weenie posts by the alarmists in the past few years on here........in one single day!!!


    All the "consensus science"???


    Bye......bye............and Im laughing..........Ive been sayng it for years on here. The alarmist elevator continues its steep decline downward!!!

    Antarctic sea ice levels dont prove or disprove CAGW anymore than Arctic sea ice levels. but dont say that to the alarmists because they will show you the documents to prove that we were always at war with Eurasia.


    oops, I mean that CO2 causes more flood, drought, tornados, hurricanes, snow....

    unless it doesnt, then it stops flood, drought....

    no, no, I was right the first time....we were always at war with Eurasia.

    weren't we?

    LOL........its is funny as shit that these hysterical radicals NEVER want to talk about the south pole!!!:eusa_dance: As if it doesnt exist!!!


    Thats is exactly why their plaight has gone steadily downhill for the past 5 years..........people are on to this cherry picking the data BS.

    Forget the Melting Arctic, Sea Ice in Antarctica is Growing!
    Climate Central
    By Michael D. Lemonick
    Published: September 22nd, 2012
    (excerpts)

    The sea ice that covers the Arctic Ocean has plummeted to its lowest level on record — but down at the other end of the world, the sea ice surrounding Antarctica has swelled. That’s no surprise, considering that winter is just ending in the Southern Hemisphere — but what may be surprising is that the overall extent of Antarctic ice has grown by about one percent per decade, on average, since satellite records began a little over 30 years ago. You might reasonably suspect that all the fuss about disappearing Arctic sea ice is overblown, then, given the growth of ice down south. But you’d be wrong, for all sorts of reasons. The first is that the one percent growth per decade in the Antarctic pales next to the much faster 15.5 percent drop per decade in the Arctic. They aren’t even in the same ballpark. Not only that: while the sea ice bordering Antarctica has been growing slightly, the massive ice sheets that sit directly atop the frozen continent are shrinking, at an accelerating rate, with worrisome implications for global sea level rise. The disparity is even more dramatic when you realize that most of the sea ice surrounding Antarctica drifts away during the summer to melt in warmer waters, and reforms anew in the winter. The Antarctic sea ice cover is nearly all first-year ice, which is typically three to six feet thick. In the Arctic, by contrast, the ice is hemmed in by Canada, Alaska, Russia and Greenland. It mostly can’t drift away, so whatever is left behind at the end of summer gets even thicker the following winter. That multi-year ice, which can be up to 15 feet thick, which is much harder to melt, dominated the Arctic Ocean when satellites first went into orbit back in 1979. If you look at the volume of ice rather than just the area it covers, the disparity between the Arctic ice loss and Antarctic ice gain is just that much more impressive.

    Still, if the planet is warming, how can the sea ice be expanding in the waters surrounding Antarctica in the first place? Keeping in mind that it isn’t expanding by much, scientists offer several possible explanations. One is that there’s been more precipitation in recent decades (which itself could well be due to global warming). That puts a cap of relatively fresh water atop the denser, saltier water below, and in winter, when that top layer cools, it stays on top rather than mixing with the warmer water underneath, thus encouraging the growth of ice. Another factor may be the ozone hole that opens up at this time every year over the South Pole. Ozone loss tends to cool the upper atmosphere — an effect that percolates down to the surface. Still another factor is purely natural climate variation, which is still happening even though manmade global warming has a growing influence on every aspect of the Earth’s climate system with every passing decade. In any case, climate scientists have long expected that the Arctic would warm up faster than the Antarctic. After all, the former is an ocean surrounded by land, while the latter is land surrounded by ocean. Wind patterns, weather systems and ocean currents behave differently at the two poles. And because the coldest part of the Antarctic is land, the ice there has been able to accumulate into a giant ice cube the size of a continent and up to two miles thick — which tends to hold back local warming considerably. By the second half of the century, however, climatologists say that the human warming signal will become more apparent, and Antarctic sea ice will begin to follow its Arctic cousin in a downward spiral. That, in turn, could speed up melting of the all-important Antarctic land ice, thereby raising global sea levels.

    The AGW k00ks will never get it. After almost two decades, they still think this is about the science.:D:D:D

    But as has been overwhelmingly proven through polls, the public doesnt give a rats ass about global warming anymore. Why? Because of stories like this....:badgrin::badgrin::badgrin:....of ice expanding at an exponential rate!!! Your average Joe on the street see's stuff like this and gives a big yawn every time some AGW nutter throws a bomb, thus, in the world of carbon emmissions reductions, the nutters obviously have failed to make their case.......except if you talk to another nutter.:funnyface: And since those assholes are fringe in number, it begs the question...........

    Who are the real retards??


    Because the AGW truthers keep posting up the same crap, year after year, implying as they go, that the world is about to go on fire.!!!:eusa_dance::eusa_dance::2up:


    And the attitude of the public?


    "m e h"

    Make no mistake......this is a religion of mental cases who missed a few meetings somewhere along the way, and now define their lives by grasping at a cause.........any cause will do. Thats what oddballs do.

    But no matter how hard they try............they remain fringe except to like fringe.

    And by the way.....from the article.........how much of a predictable crock of shit is this???


    "After all, the former is an ocean surrounded by land, while the latter is land surrounded by ocean. Wind patterns, weather systems and ocean currents behave differently at the two poles."


    These people are all snake oil salesmen!!!:D:D:D


    Thankfully, the only people buying their crap are the hoelessly duped assholes on the planet.:eusa_dance::eusa_dance::eusa_dance:........who dont add up to dick.

    The deluded AGW denier cultists will never get it. After over five decades of intensive scientific climate research that has convinced virtually all of the leading scientists and every reputable scientific institution and organization on Earth, the dingbat denier cultists still imagine that this is about the politics. These bamboozled retards, closing their eyes to all of the evidence, still cling to their cultic faith in long ago debunked pseudo-science, misinformation and lies. They repeat their fallacious bullshit endlessly to each other in corporate sponsored rightwingnut media echo chambers and thereby fool themselves into imagining that most other people are as ignorant and brainwashed about AGW as they are. LOL. Case in point:
    There's the denier cult myth and here's the reality.


    Record Heat Wave Pushes U.S. Belief in Climate Change to 70%
    BusinessWeek - Bloomberg News
    By Mark Drajem
    July 18, 2012
    (excerpts)
    A record heat wave, drought and catastrophic wildfires are accomplishing what climate scientists could not: convincing a wide swath of Americans that global temperatures are rising. In the four months since March there has been a jump in U.S. citizens’ belief that climate change is taking place, especially among independent voters and those in southern states such as Texas, which is now in its second year of record drought, according to nationwide polls by the University of Texas. In a poll taken July 12-16, 70 percent of respondents said they think the climate is changing, compared with 65 percent in a similar poll in March. Those saying it’s not taking place fell to 15 percent from 22 percent, according to data set to be released this week by the UT Energy Poll. Following a winter of record snowfall in 2010, the public’s acceptance of climate change fell to a low of 52 percent, according to the National Survey of American Public Opinion on Climate Change, which was published by the Brookings Institution in Washington. After this year’s mild winter, support jumped to 65 percent, the same as that found by the UT Energy Poll in March. “There has been a rebound in belief” in global warming, Barry Rabe, a University of Michigan professor who published the research on the Brookings study.









    Here's a good demonstration of just how extremely retarded the deniers are. This particular (extremely!!!) retarded denier is claiming that Antarctic sea ice is "expanding at an exponential rate!!!". Leaving aside the fact that he is very obviously far too stupid to understand the meaning of 'exponential', the fact is that, as the article I posted mentioned, Antarctic sea ice extent has been expanding at a rate of about 1% per decade for the last few decades.

    "the overall extent of Antarctic ice has grown by about one percent per decade, on average, since satellite records began a little over 30 years ago"








    You are, every time, kookiepukie, you and all of your denier cult butt-buddies.

    skookerasbil :: Now THIS is 1st class entertainment.. Better than Joel McHale and "the Soup"...

    One isolated summer heatwave is DEFINATELY CO2 induced warming announcing the coming apocalypse. But an Antarctic ice record for this day in history --- that's KOOK talk..

    Me? I'm waiting for something "GLOBAL" to happen.. When it does --- PM me..

    Both you kids have fun --- and don't hurt the princess Skooker.

    The ice is increasing...because of Global Warming

    Amiright? Isn't that how AGW science works?

    Instead of adding "that's what she said!" to the statement, you add "Because of manmade global warming"

    Sure... If Bloomberg asked me ---- Hey FlaCalTenn !! Do you think the Climate is Changing?? Why I'd have to be part of that 70% that said "why YES Mr. Bloomberg -- I do"..... And then I'd be used as weapon by some moron on USMB who has NO CONCEPT of what I think about AGW...
