Arctic Canary in Fine Song!

Arctic ice when it was decreasing was described by many alarmist "scientists"as the Global Warming canary , but it seems that the canary is very healthy and getting healthier by theday!
In a contradiction to alarmist views a  Russian scientist Professort Oleg Pokrovsky has predicted a major build-up of ice over the next few years.

Research for mineral resources in the Arctic may be hampered by a global trend towards colder weather rather than global warming, a Russian scientist said on Friday.



Prof. Oleg Pokrovsky of the Voeikov Main Geophysical Observatory (MGO) said the cold snap began in 1998 and the temperatures are predicted to return to the lows of the 1950s-1960s and reach their peak in 15 years.
Despite the predictions of global warming, which has been the greatest economic and political challenge, most parts of the world have recently seen widespread low temperatures and extremely heavy snowfalls.
"Now all the components of the climate system are entering the negative phase. Politicians who placed their bets on global warming may lose the pot," Pokrovsky said at a conference on marine research in the Polar regions.
The scientist explains the possible climate miscalculation by the fact that most meteorological stations in the United States are located in urban areas which are affected by the city's microclimate where the temperature is usually higher.
If the ice continues it's buildup it will be interesting to see how the alarmist camp spins it in trying to weasel out of previous statements!
