Deep freeze in western Greenland

The ice between Canada and southwestern Greenland has reached its highest level in 15 years.

15 Feb 08 - Minus 30 degrees Celsius. That's how cold it's been in large parts of western Greenland. At the same time, Denmark's Meteorological Institute states that the ice between Canada and southwest Greenland right now has reached its greatest extent in 15 years.

'Satellite pictures show that the ice expansion has extended farther south this year. On the eastern coast it hasn't been colder than normal, but there has been a good amount of snow.'

               How does this new knowledge jibe with the continual
               reports that ice in the Arctic Ocean has been melting 
               at a record rate due to global warming?

               The article twists its way through conundrum this by
               insisting "there is not anything inherently contradictory
               that extreme cold is replaced by higher temperatures 
               than average. Or that melting sea ice occasionally is
               replaced by expanding ice sheets."

               "To sum things up," the article ends, "global warming
               hasn't been called off."

               What a bunch of Orwellian doublespeak.

               Cold is now warmer, and more ice means global

               "I believe this is the geographical area the IPCC calls 
               "the tipping point" for global warming," says Norm. 
               "The problem is it's not tipping the way their computer
                models predicted. The sunspot hibernation appears 
                to be producing quick results.
