Thats pretty revealing. Look at figures 2 and 3 – see something. The numbers look big but in the total scheme of things, they are virtually meaningless. Oh, sue the Alarmists conveniently forget that temperatures went down for some years now and the ice comes back with a vengeance. We lost – virtually nothing. We gain it back in a few years and as we are entering a protracted solar minimum now, there will likely be a lot more ice than the starting point not long from now. The Netherlands might be able to live without all their dikes someday in the not so far future.
Now, I’ve gotta admit that that sounds like a lot of ice, eleven billion with a “b” tonnes melted in one single day. However, I’m a tropical boy, so I’m kinda prejudiced in these matters.
