NoTricksZone is finally back online after having been unavailable for some 32 or so hours.
Apparently a WordPress version update “had faultily written the htaccess file“, the host company has just informed me. Don’t ask me what that is supposed to mean. At any rate, the problem seems to be resolved, and we’re well back in the “denial” business. 🙂
I’m short on time today and so this post will be a short one.
Awhile back I wrote a piece here about global sea ice. When one examines the chart objectively, one finds no sign of any global warming – assuming that it is an indication of global temperature as the warmists like to tell us (especially when sea ice shrinks).

Again we note that sea ice has been normal for over 2 years now. Antarctica has been constantly above normal for a long period of 3 years – something that is unprecedented and a record since satellite measurements began.
And when one really looks honestly and objectively at the above chart above, we see that global sea ice has been markedly below normal only about 4 of 36 years: half of 2006, 2007, half of 2010, 2011 and half of 2012. That’s 3.5 years – but we can round it up to four whole years out of 36.
One could argue 2002 should be included, but the amount is not significantly below normal. In 2008 there was only a sharp but brief dip. The last 4 years have seen a strong upward trend. Four years of course is too short to draw any conclusions (except when the ice melts).
The bottom line: Global sea ice shows no signs of a globe that is experiencing galloping warming.
