Not that the Greenie Alarmists won’t come up with some new “the world is going to end because……” theme.

But “The world is going to end because the poles are melting and we’re all going to drown and those poor cuddly polar bears are gonna die” theme is pretty much debunked. At least for the moment.

Arctic Sea Ice extent AND Sea Ice area are both at normal 1979-2010 averaged levels. This may be temporary, this may be permanent (the Antarctic has been above normal for quite some time already). Who knows? But, is it too much to hope for that the damn climate zealots might shut up for a while? I know, I know, it’s probably too much to ask for.
