Sea Ice Coverage vs. Polar Bear Population Predictions

by Steve MacDonald December 7, 2017

The bears are not cooperating. Data collected between 2007 and 2015 reveal that polar bear numbers have not declined as predicted and no subpopulation has been extirpated. Several subpopulations expected to be at high risk of decline remained stable and five showed increases in population size. Another at-risk subpopulation was not counted but showed marked […]

Increased Sea Ice Now Caused by ‘Climate Change’

by Steve MacDonald June 15, 2017

Remember when the Climate Cult said our children would never see snow in New Hampshire because of Global Warming but the snow wouldn’t cooperate, so it was decided that all that snow was caused by Global Warming? The same thing is happening with sea ice in the Arctic. Large Canadian Arctic climate change study canceled due […]

Ice Loss Claims Have Zero Impact on Polar Bear Population

by Steve MacDonald February 25, 2017

Another climate cult fantasy takes a beating from reality. If sea ice affects populations and sea ice is “disappearing at an alarming rate™” why are there more bears? Monday, Feb. 27th, is International Polar Bear Day. I’m sure you’ll hear about “sea ice loss” but don’t expect population growth to be part of any relevant […]

“Vanishing” Arctic Sea Ice Same Thickness As 1940

by Steve MacDonald January 7, 2017

Vanishing Arctic Sea Ice™ continues to be the lead Global Warming story. All the most reputable climate cult propagandists claim the ice is thinner. Its demise is imminent. What will become of us? Sandwich-board wearing prophets roaming digital streetcorners shouting about the end of the world. But the perennial ice today is the same thickness reported in […]

In 2014 Climate Cult Kool Aid Drinking yuppie tourists were going to make a point about global warming because “No Polar ice, dude.” They got stuck in the ice that was always there but that they’d been told was gone and had to be rescued. It just happened again. A group of adventurers, sailors, pilots and […]

And does this ‘seal’ the deal? A new paper that combines paleoclimatology data for the last 56 million years with molecular genetic evidence concludes there were no biological extinctions over the last 1.5M years despite profound Arctic sea ice changes that included ice-free summers: polar bears, seals, walrus and other species successfully adapted to habitat […]

NYT 1974 | Arctic ice has increased 12% – Why hasn’t it returned (shrunk) to its normal size? Normal size would be smaller, if I read that correctly. Normal like 1971?, which had less arctic sea ice than…2010. So why are the climate inquisitors posting data suggesting a linear decline in arctic sea ice for decades? […]

Some ice watchers who are committeed to observing and reporting the environmental affects of “climate change” on arctic ice ran into a bit of a problem. Severe weather conditions hindered our early progress and now ice chokes the passage ahead. Our ice router Victor has been very clear in what lies ahead. He writes, “Just […]

If Sea Ice Grew and No One Was There to ‘Report’ It, Did It Really Happen?

by Steve MacDonald September 20, 2012

Forbes has a story about the Antarctic.  It’s that other frozen wasteland, the one you never hear much about.   You don’t hear anything about it because for the past 33 years the amount of sea-ice in the antarctic has apparently been growing, and as of this week–due to record cold temperatures in the region–has reached […]
