Unusually cold year in the antarctic

The media recently reported that due to an unusually cold year the coverage of ice in the antarctic is quite good. For once the “unusal” weather was not blamed on global warming. It seems to me that scientists are becoming a little selective with their causality. If we blame an unusally warm year on climate change then we must also blame an unusually cold year.

 Ice

There are not two conflicting forces in  action here, there is just the climate changing in response to any number of drivers. One of these drivers is human driven green house gas emmissions. 

On the whole I go along with the theory of global warming but, as with anything, when people forsake their reason and start to believe in something as an article of faith I become skeptical.
