More of those darned inconvenient facts from Arctic mammal expert, Dr Susan Crockford:

 

This week, Arctic sea ice in Canada, where 2/3 of the world’s polar bears live, had more sea ice than was present in the early 1970s. Globally, the ice is spitting-distance close to the 1981-2010 average calculated by the NSIDC for this date – which means lots of winter/spring hunting habitat for polar bears.

This is the peak of the polar bear birthing season (both in the wild and in zoos.) Newborns will be snug in maternity dens built by their mothers onshore or on the sea ice; the rest of the population will be out on the ice.

Regional ice charts going back to the late 1960s and early 1970s for this week show even more surprises — have a look.

    How long does fact and reality have to go in the opposite direction to Global Warming theory? But of course we all know that this is not about reality or science or even the climate – it is just UN Agenda 21 guff.

    Will Climate Science adjust to reality as a science should? Well there are signs that it is very slowly dawning on some that what they were told at university and have believed ever since may not be as solid as they thought – but with grants and sinecures to be protected I think thaw will be slow.

    I think somehow the facts about adjusted data being the only real warming have to be got into the MSM – I really don’t know who will start a real Potentate’s Clothes event.

      Dave, the MSM are fully on board with the Climate brigade with just a few isolated Reporters trying report the truth, but the are pretty lonely voices at the moment.
      There does appear to be a bit of questioning going on in Germany as noted on No Trickszone.
      The BBC and Newspapers all made a big thing of no snow in the French Alps, noit a mention of all the snow in the rest of the world. Absolutely no balance whatsoever.

      Most of the public are wising up though due to mother nature calling them all liers.

    Thanks, Paul. Good graphics.
    The Daily AMSR2 sea ice maps: Arctic, Antarctic (University of Bremen, Germany), show corroborating data. See http://www.iup.uni-bremen.de:8084/amsr2/

    Truth has a tendency to come out, lies tend to drown. The relative speeds depends on the density of the minds.
    Wishing you all a happy and much better new Year!

    Well, what do you know?
    The arctic is filling up with ice again…
    Western Europe has got its snow, almost exactly on time, just 2 days late for Christmas…
    Here in Pretoria & Johannesburg the heavens have opened up- I have never seen such a deluge of water fall here for a long time….
    which still seems to make sense to me if you just know why

    (note that backwards and forward projection in this graph is the exact mirror of what is shown – remember the pendulum of a clock)

    global warming has stopped and now it is globally cooling…..

    One thing’s for sure: there will allways be skeptics and deniers, there will allways be manipulation, depending on which interests should be protected. A week ago I was reading that polar bears will have a bad time this winter and I was watching this clip going viral on social networks – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TelbdcnswK4 – now…. I’m happy to see that they’ll be all right. Sometimes I have the feeling that the truth is somewhere beyond us…..

    @smamarver
    nature itself will protect the arctic
    it will become very cold up there in the next few decades
    anyone investing in oil exploration in the face of these results must be darn stupid…
