Baby, it's cold outside. Are you cold tonight?
I thought it was just me. Here in St. Louis, we've had a few way above average temp days this winter, including 70+ in January and February. But between those balmy days are many, many below average days and nights. My gas bill has been in over $200 a month, and I live in an 11-year-old, well insulated home.
Now, we learn that the polar ice caps have reversed five years of shrinkage by returning rapidly old levels. From the Daily Express:
It was feared that the polar caps were vanishing because of the effects of global warming.
But figures from the respected US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration show that almost all the “lost” ice has come back.
Ice levels which had shrunk from 13million sq km in January 2007 to just four million in October, are almost back to their original levels.
Figures show that there is nearly a third more ice in Antarctica than is usual for the time of year.
Damn. All that worry and rancor shot to hell.
Now, the idiots will tell us that record cold temperatures and increasing ice caps prove global warming is real. Just remember--they're idiots. (h/t Gateway Pundit)
