Editorial: Antarctic Ice: Is It Going To Take Over The Planet?

Environment: For every scary piece of data held up by alarmists as proof of man-made global warming, it seems a bit of contrary evidence is uncovered — and, of course, is ignored. Let's see what Antarctica is telling us.

The professional fearmongers are predicting that Arctic sea ice will soon be gone during the warmer months of the year. This is supposed to worry us into action that "fights" global warming.

But then there's the fact, which we noted last week, that the Arctic's sea ice gain from the record low of summer 2012 is a record of its own.

We reported that we're in only the third winter in history in which more than 10 million square kilometers of new ice has formed in the Arctic.

We also mentioned that the Antarctic is nearing 450 days of uninterrupted above-normal ice.

That was last week. And this is this week: Antarctic sea ice is on an upward slope. Real Science, a science website, says it "has been increasing at a rate of half a million square kilometers per year.

"If this alarming trend continues, the planet will be completely covered with Antarctic ice in 1,000 years," said Real Science, using University of Illinois data to map out the trend and reach its conclusion. "The Australian coral reefs will freeze to death in less than 300 years."

We don't think Real Science expects Earth to be fully covered with Antarctic ice in 1,000 years. But it is a fine, though maybe somewhat snarky, response to Al Gore wildly claiming in his movie "An Inconvenient Truth" that sea levels will rise 20 feet due to global warming.

The point is, a lot of data look extreme if their trend lines are projected to go unbroken for decades and centuries, and no room is allowed for reversals.

As Antarctica was re-icing itself, America's new Secretary of State John Kerry was making his first foreign policy speech in which he addressed — yes, climate change. The silliness would be mildly amusing if the government weren't in the hands of such unserious people, effetes striving to be relevant by fixating on trendy issues rather than substantive ones.

But that really epitomizes the entire global warming fright-fest and green movement, doesn't it?

Facts contradictory to the popular narrative don't matter. Appearances do.

It's disturbing that our country has arrived at such a place.

» How much "Man Made" CO2 Is In The Earth's Atmosphere?
I think ALL of the CO2 in the Earth's Atmosphere is from man.
I'm not sure how much "Man Made" CO2 is in the Earth's Atmosphere.
There is .04% CO2 in the Earth's Atmosphere and of that "Man" has added an extra 4% (1 part in 62,500)
