Just two years ago, many mainstream media outlets declared that sea ice at the South Pole was melting at an “astonishing” rate.
As recently pointed out by notrickszone.com, German national daily Süddeutsche Zeitung reported in June 2019 that Antarctic sea ice had “shrunk 1.8 million square kilometers”, writing: “the massive disappearance of ice is astonishing”.
And while the reporting was technically factual, it has proven to be yet more AGW-driving obfuscation and cherry-picking rather than well-founded indications of a concerning climatic trend.
And now, in 2021, as the ice sharply rebounds, these same MSM outlets have fallen silent–which is speaking volumes…
Sea ice at the South Pole has rebounded in 2020 and 2021, to the levels of some 3-decades ago.
Moreover, the trend of the past 40+ years (the satellite era) remains one of significant growth (of approx 1% per decade).
In 2021, Antarctic sea ice is actually tracking well-above the multidecadal average (shown below).
MASSIVE SEA ICE REBOUND GOES UNREPORTED
The climate-ambulance chasing MSM have stopped reporting on the state of the ice across the Southern Hemisphere.
CLASSIC DISINFORMATION TECHNIQUE
“Researchers are in agreement that the decline in Antarctic sea ice from 2016 to 2019 is due to natural causes,” writes Die kalte Sonne. “Obviously this is not a good topic for the Süddeutsche Zeitung, who prefer not to report on the ice recovery.”
Not informing the public about the most recent developments, but instead leaving them with a false impression based on carefully cherry-picked data from two years prior, is a classic disinformation technique that has long been perfected by the activist media.
