In the 1970s "climatologists" predicted an impending ice age (incorrect) based on the (correct) observation the world was cooling.


Hubbard Glacier defies climate change, continues advancing

Jun 13, 2015 - Hubbard Glacier could permanently dam the entrance to Russell Fiord within 25 years

Stearns says the Hubbard Glacier is unusual because it has been steadily advancing for more than 100 years despite warmer temperatures. The glacier is accumulating mass near its origin faster than it's losing it in the ocean.


On Sept. 19, 2014, the five-day average of Antarctic sea ice extent exceeded 20 million square kilometers for the first time since 1979, according to the National Snow and Ice Data Center. The red line shows the average maximum extent from 1979-2014.

Growth in glaciers

The rapid growth in glacier size after the 1940s.

Turns out it does this every 150 years

Ice cores from Summit show that melting events of this type occur about once every 150 years on average. With the last one happening in 1889, this event is right on time.

Arctic sea ice grew between 2012 and 2014.

Industrial revolution kicked off Alpine glacier retreat fifty years before warming began.

It's not supposed to be there today.

Churchville, VA—The naïve advice of ardent activists can kill. Last spring, Paul Beckwith of Sierra Club Canada predicted that the Arctic seas would be ice-free ice this summer. This exciting adventure opportunity attracted a variety of yachts, sailboats, rowboats, and kayaks owners to try sailing the fabled Northwest Passage.

The Arctic sea ice suddenly expanded 60% this fall, after the coldest summer in the modern Alaska temperature record. The passage is now impassable. More than a dozen of the boats are trapped, apparently even including a group of tiny American jet-ski “personal watercraft” that were attempting to cross from the east coast of Russia to the North Atlantic. Arctic observers are now warning that even Canadian icebreakers might not be able to rescue them.

Arctic ice grows

Canadian government maps of the arctic show increased ice.
