Belay My Last

A few weeks ago, I had some fun posting pictures of all the global warming that was making it hard to get up the hill to my house. One response was that one local cooling variation does not a global global warming hysteria undo, and point taken. But it turns out to have been the hardest winter for a long time pretty much everywhere. And not only that, but the melting ice in the Artic that helped Al Gore shinny up the greasy pole of ethical stardom has, well . . . it kind of froze again.

“But figures from the respected US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration show that almost all the ‘lost’ ice has come back. Ice levels which had shrunk from 13 million sq km in January 2007 to just four million in October, are almost back to their original levels.”

As we used to say in the Navy, “Belay my last.”
