Global Warming or Global Cooling. Which is it?

I have read many articles today all across the mainstream media saying that we are experiencing global warming.  That the global warming is causing all of the rain and flooding that we have seen around the world.  Then I came across an article with satellite images from NASA that actually show the polar ice caps growing in size.  In fact they apparently have increased in size by 60% from 2012 to 2013.  They can’t both be right.  Which is it?  Maybe government scare tactics, propaganda to promote their “New World Order” agenda?  Scientists around the globe have been telling us for years that humans are creating “global warming”.  I bet that these are the same scientists who believe in evolution and the “Big Bang” theory!  Read the following article and decide for yourself.

I bet it’s all of those electric cars we’ve been buying.  Quick, don’t buy a Prius, sell your cars, it’s now time to purchase a Hummer!  LOL

And now it’s global COOLING! Record return of Arctic ice cap as it grows by 60% in a year

A chilly Arctic summer has left nearly a million more square miles of ocean covered with ice than at the same time last year – an increase of 60 per cent.

The rebound from 2012’s record low comes six years after the BBC reported that global warming would leave the Arctic ice-free in summer by 2013.

Instead, days before the annual autumn re-freeze is due to begin, an unbroken ice sheet more than half the size of Europe already stretches from the Canadian islands to Russia’s northern shores.

Global warming computer models collapse

Arctic ice sheets rapidly expand as planet plunges into global cooling

(NaturalNews) For years, we’ve all heard that global warming is threatening our planet. But now, in a stunning turnaround, world scientists are warning that an era of global cooling seems to be upon us, complete with extraordinary expansions of ocean ice being recorded in just the past year.

Even the latest UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report seems to indicate that an era of global cooling is now underway, according to many scientists.

It turns out that global warming predictions were little more than doom-and-gloom fear mongering based on failed computer models.

For example, in 2007, the BBC reported that the Arctic would be “ice-free” by the summer of 2013. Here’s exactly how that fear mongering was published by the BBC:

Scientists in the US have presented one of the most dramatic forecasts yet for the disappearance of Arctic sea ice. Their latest modelling studies indicate northern polar waters could be ice-free in summers within just 5-6 years. Professor Wieslaw Maslowski told an American Geophysical Union meeting that previous projections had underestimated the processes now driving ice loss.

Arctic methane release could cost economy $60 trillion

If trapped methane were to break the sea surface and escape into the atmosphere, it could accelerate the melting of ice sheets.

LONDON — A release of methane in the Arctic could speed the melting of sea ice and climate change with a cost to the global economy of up to $60 trillion over coming decades, according to a paper published in the journal Nature.

Researchers at the University of Cambridge and Erasmus University in the Netherlands used economic modeling to calculate the consequences of a release of a 50-gigaton reservoir of methane from thawing permafrost under the East Siberian Sea.

They examined a scenario in which there is a release of methane over a decade as global temperatures rise at their current pace.

They also looked at lower and slower releases, yet all produced “steep” economic costs stemming from physical changes to the Arctic.

“The global impact of a warming Arctic is an economic time bomb,” said Gail Whiteman, an author of the report and professor of sustainability, management and climate change at the Rotterdam School of Management, part of Erasmus University.

“In the absence of climate-change mitigation measures, the model calculates that it would increase mean global climate impacts by $60 trillion,” said Chris Hope, a reader in policy modeling at the Cambridge Judge Business School, part of the University of Cambridge.

That approaches the value of the global economy, which was around $70 trillion last year.
