North and South Poles not melting: Global warming expert

27 Dec 2014


A leading global warming expert has stated that the North and South Poles are "not melting'' reported in an exclusive report.

As a matter of fact, the poles were "much more stable" than climate scientists once predicted and could even be much thicker than earlier thought.

Scientists had over the years suggested that both poles were melting at an alarming rate due to warming temperatures - dangerously raising the sea levels on the earth and threatening the homes of Arctic and Antarctic animals.

However, the uncertainty surrounding climate change and the polar ice caps reached a new level this month with research suggesting the ice in the Antarctic was actually growing.

Further there could be evidence to suggest the polar bear population was not under threat.

Oceanographer Ted Maksym of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution in Massachussets conducted a study in which he sent an underwater robot into the depths of the Antarctic sea for measuring the ice.

His results ran counter to assumptions made by scientists and showed that the ice was actually much thicker than had been predicted over the last 20 years.

According to Dr Benny Peiser from the Global Warming Policy Forum (GWPF), this latest research came as additional proof of unpredictability of the supposed effects of global warming.

In fact, the poles are "much more stable" than climate scientists once predicted and could even be much thicker than previously thought.

According to Peiser, the Antarctic was actually growing and all the evidence in the last few months suggested many assumptions about the poles were wrong.

He added that global sea ice was at a record high, another key indicator that something was working the opposite direction of what was predicted.

He added most people thought the poles were melting they were not. This was a huge inconvenience that reality was now catching up with climate alarmists, who were predicting that the poles would be melting fairly soon.

Separate satellite data released this month showed evidence that at the other end of the globe, the ice in the Arctic sea too was holding up against climate change better than expected.

The data from the European Space Agency's CryoSat-2 satellite indicated higher Arctic sea ice volumes in the autumn of 2014, higher than the average set over the last five years, and sharply up on the lows recorded in 2011 and 2012.
