Scientists just granted the Arctic a reprieve until the year 2040!
They have been telling us the same story for about a century. In 1923 they predicted an ice-free Arctic
In 1947, science said that Arctic melt would drown us all
In 1954, science predicted an ice-free Arctic in 25-50 years.

In 1958 science predicted an-ice free Arctic within the lifetime of the children.
In 1969, science said we were going to have a new ice age
In 1972, science predicted an ice-free Arctic by the year 2000
In 1975, science predicted a new ice age
Science predicted an ice-free Arctic by 2013
Science predicted an ice-free Arctic by 2014
The 2040 date just announced has granted the Arctic another 25 year reprieve!
The only problem with their theory, is that Arctic sea ice is almost identical to what it was 75 years ago – 2 metres thick.
Current ice thickness is the same as 1940
In other words, these wankers have no idea what they are talking about. The Arctic is not disappearing, and ice volume, thickness and extent is about the same as 10 years ago.
Amundsen saw the Northwest Passage open in 1904. It probably won’t be open this year, because the ice is too thick.
