Ice Fails to Melt, But Obama Still to Use Global Warming Hoax to Finish Off Economy

Another blow to the global warming farce:

A glitch in satellite sensors caused scientists to underestimate the extent of Arctic sea ice by 500,000 square kilometers (193,000 square miles), a California- size area, the U.S. National Snow and Ice Data Center said.
The error, due to a problem called "sensor drift," began in early January and caused a slowly growing underestimation of sea ice extent until mid-February. That's when "puzzled readers" alerted the NSIDC about data showing ice-covered areas as stretches of open ocean, the Boulder, Colorado-based group said on its Web site. … The extent of Arctic sea ice is seen as a key measure of how rising temperatures are affecting the Earth.

It's good that someone is paying attention, rather than taking official propaganda at face value. We have reached the point in our slide toward totalitarianism where all data originating from the government is suspect, if not presumably false.

In light of the cold winters we've been having, it shouldn't be surprising that all the ice isn't melting after all. Nonetheless, the hoax is pressing full steam ahead. In the name of this fictional crisis, Obama will be imposing a cap-and-trade system to suppress harmless CO2 emissions. This is estimated to cost the American economy as much as $1.3 trillion over the next 21 years.

But at this point, what's another $trillion? We'll be burning US currency to heat our homes by the time we get Obama out of the White House.
