While I hear there’s a LOT of money to be made practicing the fine art of global warming denying, it’s awfully entertaining to witness those who likely aren’t getting paid.

This was suppose to be the year that the Arctic was going to lose “record” amounts of ice. In fact the “experts” were saying that the North Pole would be “ice free in 2008”. That isn’t going to happen, in fact the North Pole has up to 30% more ice this year than last year at this time.
We’ve been hearing the frightening predictions for a few years now that the Arctic was soon going to be “ice free”. The past 18 months the media has been full of reports that the arctic was going to be “ice free in 2008 for the first time”.

This didn’t happen. Not only did it not happen but the Arctic actually gained up to 30% more ice in 2008 over the same period in 2007. Now that summer is over in the Arctic it is quite obvious that the North Pole won’t be ice free this year.
The University of Illinois Cryosphere Today project shows the Arctic sea ice extent up 30% from last year at this time:
