Hmm, recently Arctic ice has began to decrease again.

No, it hasn't. It's increasing like it always does when the winter is coming. Look at the dates.

Sea Ice Volume

August ice volume was about 1400 km3 larger than in August of 2012 and within 200 km3 of the 2010 August ice volume. While ice volume at the maximum during April was on par with the previous two years, reduction in ice volume during the summer month was less than in previous years. August ice volume showed the first increase since 2008 but is still below the long-term trend line.

Sorry to get away from the amount of cubic ice existing, but there were some comments to the effect that in the '70s global cooling and a coming ice age was being mentioned only by a few, and the fast majority of whom ever didn't believe it.

I started college in 1969, and it was all the rage. Here is an article with more links than you can shake a polar bear at.

If noted scientists make claims that are reported in The New York Times, do you dismiss them because it's not reported in a journal? The scientists who claim global warming report it in the main stream press all the time, and they're not dismissed.

Here is only the slightest excerpt:

National Academy of Sciences Issued Report Warning of Coming Ice Age in 1975
Excerpt: “A major climatic change would force economic and social adjustments on a worldwide scale,” warns a recent report by the National Academy of Sciences, “because the global patterns of food production and population that have evolved are implicitly dependent on the climate of the present century.” – Newsweek – April 28, 1975 “The Cooling World”

NASA warned of human caused coming ‘ice age’ in 1971 – Washington Times – September 19, 2007
Excerpt: “The world “could be as little as 50 or 60 years away from a disastrous new ice age, a leading atmospheric scientist predicts,” read a July 9, 1971 Washington Post article. NASA scientist S.I. Rasool, a colleague of James Hansen, made the predictions. The 1971 article continues: “In the next 50 years” — or by 2021 — fossil-fuel dust injected by man into the atmosphere “could screen out so much sunlight that the average temperature could drop by six degrees,” resulting in a buildup of “new glaciers that could eventually cover huge areas.” If sustained over “several years, five to 10,” or so Mr. Rasool estimated, “such a temperature decrease could be sufficient to trigger an ice age.”

New York Times: Obama’s global warming promoting science czar Holdren ‘warned of a coming ice age’ in 1971 – September 29, 2009 – By John Tierney – Excerpt: In the 1971 essay, “Overpopulation and the Potential for Ecocide,” Dr. Holdren and his co-author, the ecologist Paul Ehrlich, warned of a coming ice age. They certainly weren’t the only scientists in the 1970s to warn of a coming ice age, but I can’t think of any others who were so creative in their catastrophizing. Although they noted that the greenhouse effect from rising emissions of carbon dioxide emissions could cause future warming of the planet, they concluded from the mid-century cooling trend that the consequences of human activities (like industrial soot, dust from farms, jet exhaust, urbanization and deforestation) were more likely to first cause an ice age.
