No warming: NASA admits Arctic ice loss due to storms, Antarctic ice sets record

"In a September 18 video posted by NASA on its website, they admit that the Arctic cyclone, which began on August 1, “wreaked havoc on the Arctic sea ice cover” by “breaking up sea ice,” Marc Moreno reports.  (NASA story here)

"Global warming activists have been giddy in their hyping of the satellite era record low Arctic sea ice extent while ignoring the satellite record sea ice expansion in the Antarctic."

"Reuters news service filed a September 21 report based on NASA’s video admission titled: “NASA says Arctic cyclone played ‘key role’ in record ice melt.” The news segment details how the Arctic sea ice was reduced due to “a powerful cyclone that scientists say ‘wreaked havoc’ on ice cover during the month of August.” (Reuters on “Arctic Cyclone” — 0:47 second long segment — Rob Muir reporting.)"

Meanwhile, the Antarctic ice is growing rapidly, something that doesn't happen in "global warming."

So rapidly, in fact, it's the most sea ice ever recorded at either pole. 

Generally the planet averages between 15 and 23 million square kilometers of sea ice.  Right now we have 18 million, which is 1 million more than the seasonal average.

67% of job creators will not hire under Obama

“Fifty-five percent of small business owners and manufacturers would not have started their businesses in today’s economy, according to a new poll,” The Washington Examiner’s Joel Gehrke writes.

The survey of job creators, conducted by the National Association of Manufacturers and the National Federation of Independent Businesses, also finds:
  • 67 percent say there is too much uncertainty in the market today to expand, grow or hire new workers.
  • 69 percent of small business owners and manufacturers say President Obama’s Executive Branch and regulatory policies have hurt American small businesses and manufacturers.
  • 55 percent say they would not start a business today given what they know now and in the current environment.
  • 54 percent say other countries like China and India are more supportive of their small businesses and manufacturers than the United States.
“There is far too much uncertainty, too many burdensome regulations and too few policymakers willing to put aside their egos and fulfill their responsibilities to the American people,” said NAM president Jay Thomas.

“To fix this problem, we need immediate action on pro-growth tax and regulatory policies that put manufacturers in the United States in a position to compete and succeed in an ever-more competitive global economy.”
