Here Joe is talking about record highs!
Weatherbell Analytics meteorologist Joe Bastardi, a person studying and observing the weather for some 40 years, says in his latest Saturday Summary that global sea ice this year has a pretty good chance of setting a new record high since satellite measurements began.

At the 8:14 mark Joe starts talking about global sea ice. He shows how the current high Antarctic levels, should they continue, combined with the projected Arctic positive anomaly could result in a new record high.
What’s going to happen if the Antarctic maintains this very very robust anomaly here, and the Arctic actually goes above normal? What’s going to happen? Well, there’s the possibility we’re going to break the all-time global sea ice records.”
I beg your pardon! How can that be? Supposedly we have record global warming taking place. How can sea ice be rebounding with abandon if it’s getting warmer and warmer. It’s not adding up, folks.
Gore about to be humiliated
Joe then reminds his viewers of Al Gore’s 2007 prediction, and chides the former VP:
This is the summer that former vice president Al Gore back in 2007 said that this was the summer that the Arctic ice cap could disappear.”
Also in the summary Joe dumps a good amount of cold water on the probability the earth is going to see a very powerful 1997-like El Nino event, showing that the current circumstances in the Pacific are very different from those of 1997. So the chances of seeing a new annual, global record high temperature, something the warmists have been waiting 16 years to see, are diminishing.
2014 could see record high global temperature – with near record high sea ice?
On a new global temperature record this year, we have to keep in mind that there are a half dozen or so datasets tallying global temperature, and so we have to expect that at least one of them will be corrupt enough to concoct a new all-time record no matter what happens – mark my words. Ironically, this could be the year where we see both a “record warm” planet with near or even record global sea ice. Go figure that one out!
That’s climate science!
