A key component of the case for global warming has been the allegedly dwindling volume of sea ice. But according to the University of Illinois's Arctic Climate Research Center, sea ice levels are now equal to those of 29 years ago, making a dramatic rebound over the last three months.
Whether this is part of a trend appears to be uncertain, but it does seem to fly in face of more hysterical claims that the polar ice cap would melt entirely.
Wonder if we'll see the mainstream media pick this up and run with it like they did with stories about those poor polar bears seen swimming out at sea unable, so the reports went, to find any ice.
Oh, and don't expect to see this is Al Gore's next movie.
