Arctic Ice has returned. Not so thick though.

Record antarctic Ice returns.
Now gentlemen if you will go back and read carefully you will note I put an AND between the two word arctic and antarctic. To be clearer I should have said plus.
Also note the latest "scientific" predictions from the warmist camp says it is going to start warming real soon now - maybe in 5 years could even be less.
So expect more ice for the next few years.
Now what were the warmist predictions for 2007? Hottest year ever. That didn't pan out. Nor did that prediction for 2006, or 2005. So how good could the models be? Well not as good as the predictors predicted.
Now here is a guy who actually predicts a little ice age based on solar activity:
And here is a popular article on the subject:

Well it is driving the temp down. So what is the latest on what scientists are asking funding for?
Sun Stays Sluggish as Weathermen Fight for Anti-Ice Age Funding
Every day, scientists hoping to see an increase in solar activity train their instruments at the sun as it crosses the sky. This is no idle academic pursuit: A lull in solar action could potentially drive the planet’s temperature down, or even prompt a mini Ice Age.
The scientist have moved on (you know it is serious when they are asking for cooling funds) and you guys are still stuck in the warming phase. That is so 20th century.
Jeez the sun drives climate. That is so totally unexpected. Who would have guessed? Wasn't the consensus that CO2 was doing it?
Oh. Well. It was good for a funding ramp up. But if you guys are right about CO2 we are going to have to burn a heck of a lot more to make up for lower solar output.
With cooling and solar the new paradigm expect lots of papers in the coming years debunking the CO2 non-sense. The worm has turned.
Let me add that the whole CO2 non-sense was predicated on the fact that the water vapor/cloud models were so notoriously bad that even the modelers had to admit they didn't even know the sign let alone the magnitude. Big hole in their Ohhh Zone there.
Here is a guy who said last August that the climate "scientists" got the feedback wrong and explains why. Latest satellite data confirms his diagnosis.
