Global Warming Comic Relief

You have probably heard a variation on this old question:  Does a tree falling in a forest make a sound, if nobody is there to hear it fall? 
Well, "global warming" is like that.  In the history of the world, ice sheets have broken off routinely in the arctic and antarctic, with no one even noticing.  There used to be glaciers down to Florida.  Yes, we would really be in bad shape if the Earth had never warmed (all without man, although my exclusive archeological sources do provide me with those recently discovered articles in the Ice Age Times, about the alarm of Al Gorice that FIRE would result in the end of the Ice Age way of life). 
The point is that ice breaking off used, correctly, to NOT be "news" except when it did something like hit the Titanic.  That does not mean it was not happening.  We just correctly paid little attention.  Now, as REAL evidence of "global warming" is sparse, and the world may be COOLING again, "global warming" priests are desperate for material to feed to the faithful.  Thus, you get FUNNY, propaganda non-stories like this:
"A chunk of ice spreading across seven square miles has broken off a Canadian ice shelf in the Arctic, scientists said Tuesday.
"Derek Mueller, a research at Trent University, was careful not to blame global warming, but said it the event was consistent with the theory that the current Arctic climate isn't rebuilding ice sheets".
The above two paragraphs are CLASSIC "global warming" propaganda.  Note that the "scientist" quoted is "careful" not to "blame" global warming (because he KNOWS this is a non-story), but goes ahed to do so by INNUENDO. 
Is the breaking off of this ice sheet CONSISTENT with the arctic cllimate being in a normal cycle.  Of course it is.  That is what the above SAYS, but it says it in a way that leaves the impression that this is "evidence" of a "global warming" "crisis" in the arctic.  It is classic propaganda--asying nothing that is actually false, but trying to leave an impression that is FALSE.
