Six years ago, the BBC reported that the Arctic would be ice-free by summer 2013.
Instead, almost a million more square miles of ocean are covered with ice than at the same time last year – an increase of 60 per cent.
“The rebound comes just six years after the BBC reported that global warming would leave the Arctic ice-free by summer 2013,” reports the UK Daily Mail.
“Instead, days before the annual autumn re-freeze is due to begin, an unbroken ice sheet more than half the size of Europe already stretches from the Canadian islands to Russia’s northern shores.”
“The Northwest Passage from the Atlantic to the Pacific has remained blocked by pack-ice all year. More than 20 yachts that had planned to sail it have been left ice-bound and a cruise ship attempting the route was forced to turn back.”
“Some eminent scientists now believe the world is heading for a period of cooling, which would expose computer forecasts of imminent catastrophic warming as dangerously misleading.”
“Those predictions now appear gravely flawed.”
Meanwhile, US climate expert Professor Judith Curry points to long-term cycles in ocean temperature suggesting that the world may be approaching a clear cooling trend.
Such a cooling trend from 1965 to 1975 led some scientists at the time to forecast an imminent ice age.

“The evidence continues to mount but the “sheeple” pay no heed,” says Johnnie.
