Gloom! Doom! Arctic ice is melting at an alarming rate is what global warming alarmists at least would have you believe. Well, the sky is NOT falling
Scan of Arctic ice dispels melting gloom, scientist says
International team uncovers plenty of old, thick ice in extensive survey
An electromagnetic "bird" dispatched to the Arctic for the most detailed look yet at the thickness of the ice has turned up a reassuring picture.
The meltdown has not been as dire as some would suggest, said geophysicist Christian Haas of the University of Alberta. His international team flew across the top of the planet last year for the 2,412-kilometre survey. They found large expanses of ice four to five metres thick, despite the record retreat in 2007.
