Global warming alarmists (also known as climate changers or whatever the current parlance is) just took a major hit, as reports about a massive arctic ice gain over the past five years surfaced on the internet. Obviously, you’ll never read this in the mainstream media, but here we are:
As you can see from the picture/graph, the arctic sea ice extent is now up forty percent compared to what it was five years ago. Greenland also gained 10 times as much ice compared to 2012 figures, and one of its most famous glaciers (the Petermann) grew significantly over the past 5 years.
To put things into perspective, the glaciers of Norway and Greenland were on the verge of catastrophic collapse in 1939:
What was NASA’s response to the obvious warmth in the Eastern Arctic from the 1930’s? Well, they put it in the memory hole, i.e. they delete all references to it.
Also, sixty five years ago, glaciers of Alaska and Norway had lost fifty percent of their mass, threatening seaports with catastrophic flooding.
If you were wondering how did climate so-called scientists reported the big Arctic ice gain, well, they lied about it, as usual.
Let’s face it, the evening weather forecast is invariably wrong, so how the heck can we trust any of the 50-100 year predictions about climate change? Sorry, but I’m highly skeptical of the climate change religion. Individually, we have an experience of maybe 80 years since we have relatively accurate measurements. Our little world has existed for 4 to 5 billion years.
Computerized (and always wrong) climate models are a bit like the Oracle at Delphi. The high priest gives the magic potion to the prophetess and she mumbles something incoherent. He then secretly finds out what the customer wants and scribbles down something suitably generic. Customer goes away happy.
The climate models mumble their nonsense after being fed their magic data, provided by the white-coated priests, while the punters hang around outside to see if the world will end.
Alexander’s priests used to kill goats and examine their livers: it’s amazing that we still, in principle, do the same. “Scientists find ice core that proves the world will end!” “Death of penguins bodes ill for Atoll Dwellers” etc.
Here is what the IPCC itself has to say about climate modelling:
“In sum, a strategy must recognise what is possible. In climate research and modelling, we should recognize that we are dealing with a coupled non-linear chaotic system, and therefore that the long-term prediction of future climate states is not possible.”
IPCC Working Group I: The Scientific Basis, Third Assessment Report (TAR), Chapter 14 (final para., 18.104.22.168), p774.
Man made global warming is no more that a confidence trick. The tree-huggers have fooled the politicians and the rest of us are paying the bills. None of the dire predictions have come to pass even though we simply didn’t make the crazy cuts in ‘green house gas’ emissions the tree huggers demanded.
Over the last 500 million years, the average temperature has ranged quite widely – from as much as 14 C higher than today to 10 C lower than today. Over the last 3 million years, the average temperature has been below average only returning around the current average about 10,000 years ago.
Here is a graph of Earth’s historic temperature and CO2 concentration over the last 4,600 million years.
No evident correlation between CO2 and temperature there. Some 60 years ago reputable scientists were predicting an imminent ice age, now equally reputable scientists are predicting climate change catastrophe – excuse me for being skeptical of people whose jobs depend on Project Climate Change Fear.
