Interesting how they seem to think this is good news. I wonder if they’ll be singing the same tune when it’s clear that a new ice age has begun. And speaking of polar bears - what happens to them when the ice in southern Canada is a few thousand feet thick?
In recent months, as anchor of CBC Television's The National, Mr. Mansbridge has taken camera crew and staff to record first hand the disappearing sea ice in Canada's North.
Thanks to really cold weather -- gee, where did that come from?--winter sea ice has been growing across the North.
There goes a good story. And if you doubt me on this, the source is as biased on climate change as sources get: The CBC.
"It's nice to know that the ice is recovering," Josefino Comiso, a senior research scientist ...told CBC News on Thursday.
"The ice is about 10 to 20 centimetres thicker than last year, so that's a significant increase," he said.
If temperatures remain cold this winter,... winter sea ice coverage will continue to expand.
Update (Feb 17): Following up on the comments re polar bears and the ice pack, these articles are relevant: Ice level highest in 15 years and Greenland polar bear invasion. The photo of Greenland brought back memories of a trip I made back in 1982 to a DEW site on top of the ice-cap (about 10,000 ft asl.) Transportation was a ski-equipped C-130D courtesy of 109 TAG Schenectady, NY Air National Guard. What a ride!
