The reality behind the Cult of Algore...



Those stubborn facts just keep getting in the way of the Cult of Algore!

The drop from January 2007 to January 2008 "appears to be the largest single year to year January drop for the entire GISS data set."


More from The Weekly Standard and the CBC:
Satellite images are showing that the cold spell is helping the sea ice expand in coverage by about 2 million square kilometres, compared to the average winter coverage in the previous three years.

"It's nice to know that the ice is recovering," Josefino Comiso, a senior research scientist with the Cryospheric Sciences Branch of NASA's Goddard Space Flight Centre in Maryland, told CBC News on Thursday.

"That means that maybe the perennial ice would not go down as low as last year."
...
The cold is also making the ice thicker in some areas, compared to recorded thicknesses last year, Lagnis added.

"The ice is about 10 to 20 centimetres thicker than last year, so that's a significant increase," he said.


You won't be seeing this data on the MSM/DNC. As Michael Goldfarb points out, "I'm starting to think that the left only pays attention to the Arctic in the summer--when it's supposed to melt."
