Thankfully, the anti-science propaganda campaign surrounding man-made climate change seems to have lost some of its effect.

Are you seeing storm clouds on the horizon? Two recent studies suggest that the latest anti-science campaign is following its forerunners--the propaganda campaigns attempting to refute science that tobacco causes cancer, that CFC's caused the hole in the ozone layer, and so on—into oblivion. Global warming denial seems to have climbed to a peak in 2010, and global warming acceptance is now climbing. This bodes well for rational public policy.

Stillhere. Do you just blindly find headlines that you think/assume support what you believe then fire them off on here without reading them?

Though some global warming cynics might see the ice trend as an opportunity to dispute the larger climate trend, the statistics on the Arctic warming indicate otherwise. NASA says that on an annual average basis, Arctic sea ice has decreased at a rate of 4.3 percent each decade since 1979, whereas in the Antarctic, sea ice has increased at a rate of 1.7 percent every 10 years.

Despite the current increase in Antarctic ice cover, scientists say the trend is likely to reverse in the future as global warming heats the planet.

"When we think about global warming we would expect intuitively that ice should also be declining in the Antarctic region as in the Arctic," NASA's senior research scientist Josefino Comiso explained. "But station and satellite data currently show that the trends in surface temperature are most positive in the Arctic while in the Antarctic region the trends are a mixture of positive and negative trends," he said, adding that cooling and declining sea surface temperatures could also contribute a "more rapid advance at the ice edge."

Snowfall could also be behind the growing ice pattern. NASA explains: "Snow landing on thin ice can actually push the thin ice below the water, which then allows cold ocean water to seep up through the ice and flood the snow - leading to a slushy mixture that freezes in the cold atmosphere and adds to the thickness of the ice."

And the ice was caused by guess what ? Climate change !

Is NASA government funded ? If it is then they have no credibility according to you ! No cant believe them because their funded by the government !

"But while the ocean depths have cooled, the top layers of the ocean have been warming, which JPL says is an “unequivocal” sign of global warming. "

Context is everything. NASA never said that there was no warming. Also global warming isn't uniform.

Funny how you ignored those parts of the story.

“The deep parts of the ocean are harder to measure,” said JPL’s William Llovel, the study’s lead author. “The combination of satellite and direct temperature data gives us a glimpse of how much sea level rise is due to deep warming. The answer is — not much.”

Ocean warming has also been a major explanation for rising sea levels because water expands as it warms. JPL study authors noted that sea levels are still rising, but ocean warming contributed almost nothing to this rise since 2005.

But while the ocean depths have cooled, the top layers of the ocean have been warming, which JPL says is an “unequivocal” sign of global warming. Recent studies have pointed to upper ocean warming — below 0.4 miles deep — as evidence of heat-trapping that is causing the planet to stay cooler than it otherwise would."

"But this theory seems to fall apart in the face of a new report by NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), which analyzes satellite and direct temperature data to conclude that the ocean’s depths — below 1.24 miles — have not warmed since 2005."

funny how NASA now admits there has been NO WARMING IN 18 years but the clingers still claim there has

SOOOOO where is the Global warming??? even YOUR source says its just aint so LOLOLOLOOL

You see theres your problem ! Its called "climate change " brought about by global warming ! You low IQ types think that abnormal snow fall is proof that there isn't global warming !Bigger storms , higher winds, etc, etc !But that's fine , stick your head in the sand or my favorite "don't duck "!

Is NASA not a credible source to the warmer crowd>?

SO, NASA admits that warming has STOPPED, and that the deep oceans have NOT warmed in a decade. HMMMM so where is the warming now?
