There is no such thing as man-made global warming drastically melting ice in the Antarctic, according to analysis of Antarctic expeditions over the past 100 years.
When the current sea ice extent in Antarctica is superimposed over past routes of expedition ships, it reveals that ice on the frigid continent is largely the same now as it was in the early 20th century.
This is an revolutionary revelation given that “man-made climate change” advocates are constantly citing Antarctica as evidence of “global warming.”
“This further demonstrates that the global warming created by man is just a fraud to get more taxes,” reported Zero Hedge. “Scientists have looked over the logbooks of polar explorers Robert Falcon Scott and Ernest Shackleton from their expeditions during 1901-1904 and 1907-1909.”
“The theory that sea ice has declined post-1950 because of man cannot be supported.”
Even the Telegraph, an establishment media outlet, admitted the past expeditions indicate changes in sea ice are part of a natural cycle and not the result of man-made “global warming.”
“We know that sea ice in the Antarctic has increased slightly over the past 30 years, since satellite observations began,” said Dr. Jonathan Day, a meteorology professor who studied the data. “Scientists have been grappling to understand this trend in the context of global warming, but these new findings suggest it may not be anything new.”
“If ice levels were as low a century ago as estimated in this research, then a similar increase may have occurred between then and the middle of the century, when previous studies suggest ice levels were far higher.”
Additionally, the sun is reaching its lowest activity level since 2011, which is fueling concerns the Earth could enter a mini ice age.
“The longest minimum on record, the Maunder Minimum of 1645-1715, lasted an incredible 70 years,” reported the Global Warming Policy Forum. “It caused London’s River Thames to freeze over, and ‘frost fairs’ became popular.
“This period of solar inactivity also corresponds to a climatic period called the ‘Little Ice Age’ when rivers that are normally ice-free froze and snow fields remained year-round at lower altitudes.”
