Contrary to the chorus of climate alarmists, the Arctic ice cap has not, by now, completely disappeared: in actual fact it has been growing rapidly lately, by an entire third just in 2013 and more since.
"It would suggest that sea ice is more resilient perhaps. If you get one year of cooler temperatures, we've almost wound the clock back a few years on this gradual decline that's been happening over decades," ice scientist Rachel Tilling tells the BBC. The Beeb was reporting on newly published updated research which has confirmed the Arctic ice's remarkable resurgence over the last couple of years, for all that last year was tied for warmest-ever with 2005 and 2010.
New study claims to have cracked predicting solar cycles Says that between 2030 and 2040 solar cycles will cancel each other out Could lead to 'Maunder minimum' effect that saw River Thames freeze over
The Earth could be headed for a 'mini ice age' researchers have warned. A new study claims to have cracked predicting solar cycles - and says that between 2020 and 2030 solar cycles will cancel each other out. This, they say, will lead to a phenomenon known as the 'Maunder minimum' - which has previously been known as a mini ice age when it hit between 1646 and 1715, even causing London's River Thames to freeze over.
