Antarctic Sea Ice Recovery Surprises Scientists… Classic Disinformation Technique Of Not Reporting

Just two years ago, many of Germany’s mainstream media outlets declared that sea ice at the South Pole had been melting at an “astonishing” rate. For example, the left of center, Munich based Süddeutsche Zeitung,

For example, German national daily Süddeutsche Zeitung (above) reported in June, 2019, that Antarctic sea ice had “shrunk 1.8 million square kilometers”, writing: “the massive disappearance of ice is astonishing”.

Many readers here, who are aware of the real data, know nothing of the sort over the long term has happened since satellite measurements began over 40 years ago.

Massive sea ice rebound goes unreported

Today, two years later, German climate science site Die kalte Sonne looks at recent sea ice developments in Antarctica – noting that the climate-ambulance chasing mainstream media like the Süddeutsche Zeitung have since mysteriously stopped reporting on Antarctica. Here’s why:

Sea ice at the South Pole has rebounded over the past two years to levels seen 30 years ago. In June, 2021, Antarctic sea ice was even well above normal. The doomsday scenario has disappeared, and not the ice.

The Antarctic sea ice rebound shows that there’s still a lot about natural drivers that remains unknown, says Die kalte Sonne. It appears that oceanic cycles, such ENSO, SAM or the Indian Ocean play major roles on Antarctic sea ice variability.

Classic disinformation technique

“Researchers are in agreement that the strong decline in Antarctic sea ice from 2016 to 2019 is mainly due to natural causes,” says 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 two years earlier is a classic disinformation technique that has long been perfected by activist media.
