No sign of global warming in Great Lakes ice cover

Great lakes (Wikipedia)

An exceptionally cold winter has seen the ice coverage over the Great Lakes being extremely high. Lake Superior has experienced the latest ever recorded start to shipping.

The total accumulated ice cover since 1980/81 and till 2013/14 shows no sign of any global warming. The season 2011/12 with its low ice cover was often “produced” as proof of global warming. By that standard of proof, 2013/14 clearly demonstrates that global cooling is upon us and a new ice age is on the way.

    Not so sure you can say that one incredible winter cancels out 20 years of observed warming across the Great Lakes.

    Research was conducted by the University of Wisconsin-Madison, funded by Wisconsin Sea Grant. Researchers at the University of Minnesota Duluth’s Large Lakes Observatory who found that average Lake Superior surface water temperatures increased 2.5 degrees Celsius between 1979 and 2006, among the most dramatic examples of climate change in North America.
