Arctic ice refuses to melt as ordered

Its because the blessed Algore (may someday he gain some intelligence) bought all those carbon credits from himself.

Just a few weeks ago, predictions of Arctic ice collapse were buzzing all over the internet. Some scientists were predicting that the “North Pole may be ice-free for first time this summer”. Others predicted that the entire “polar ice cap would disappear this summer”.
The Arctic melt season is nearly done for this year. The sun is now very low above the horizon and will set for the winter at the North Pole in five weeks. And none of these dire predictions have come to pass. Yet there is, however, something odd going on with the ice data.
A comparison of these maps (derived from NSIDC data) below shows that Arctic ice extent was 30 per cent greater on August 11, 2008 than it was on the August 12, 2007. (2008 is a leap year, so the dates are offset by one.

Ice at the Arctic
ice has grown in nearly every direction since last summer – with a large increase in the area north of Siberia
Northwest Passage (west of Greenland) has seen a significant increase in ice

The Polar Caps are Not Melting

Does scientific consensus know about this?

Satellite data shows that concerns over the levels of sea ice may have been premature.

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.

Will the sainted Algore have anything to do if the ice comes back?  And what about the polar bears?

Figures show that there is nearly a third more ice in Antarctica than is usual for the time of year.

The data flies in the face of many current thinkers and will be seized on by climate change sceptics who deny that the world is undergoing global warming.

A photograph of polar bears clinging on to a melting iceberg has become one of the most enduring images in the campaign against climate change.

It was used by former US Vice President Al Gore during his Inconvenient Truth lectures about mankind’s impact on the world. But scientists say the northern hemisphere has endured its coldest winter in decades.

They add that snow cover across the area is at its greatest since 1966.

 
Dear Al in Tennessee – what can be done to bring back manmade global warming?

Four Percent Success

If this wasn’t a government agency, but instead a private company, all those in charge would be fired immediately. And yet, this is twice the success these clowns had in 2006 so its great news.Pathetic

The good news is that ICE was twice as effective in 2007 than in the previous year:
Federal agents who track down fugitive illegal immigrants arrested more than 30,000 people nationally in fiscal year 2007, nearly double the previous year, officials said Tuesday. . . .
There were more than 30,408 arrests nationally in fiscal 2007, which ended Sept. 30, compared to 15,462 last year, ICE said.
The bad news is that at least half of the 10.3 million immigrants who have arrived since 2000 are illegal (about 5.6 million). That’s an average of 800,000 illegals per year.
Thus ICE is capturing less than 4 percent of the criminals coming into our country each year.
