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

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.

Cause of deglaciation.

21st June 2010 10:39 GMT; Antarctic glacier melt maybe 'not due to climate change'.

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

Arctic sea ice grew between 2012 and 2014.

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.

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.
