No Sign of the Apocalypse Yet

Apocalyptic global warming scenarios peddled by people like Al Gore seem increasingly far-fetched, as Bearing Drift notes. “A recent article from Canada’s National Post points out the following:

– Snow cover over North America, much of Siberia, Mongolia and China is greater than at any time since 1966;
– The average temperature in January was -0.3 F cooler than the 1901-2000 (20th century) average;
– China is surviving its most brutal winter in a century;
– The Arctic Sea ice that had melted to its lowest levels on record . . . is back and, according to the Canadian Ice Service, ‘is actually 10 to 20 cm thicker in many places than at this time last year;’
– Respected scientists from Canada and Russia are now predicting a long period of severely cold weather if sunspot activity does not pick up soon.”
