Putting “Global Warming” On Ice

Published by at 11:47 am under All General Discussions,Global Warming

TigerHawk posted today on a matter I wanted to address – the reversal of Global Warming. The big speculation from the Chicken Littles at the Church of Al Gore/IPCC have been crying that the North Pole would lose its ice cover this year. In fact, just the opposite is happening as TigerHawk notes:

Notwithstanding confident warnings of a record summer melt in the Arctic, there are still around a half million more square kilometers of sea ice in the northern hemisphere than there was one year ago today. The melt reaches its high water mark, as it were, in mid-August, so we will know well before Labor Day whether we set another record.

I wanted to add more data to the picture by showing the dramatic differences between the Northern Hemisphere Ice Extent between this year and last (click picture to see larger image):

As even a scientific layman can see the amount of Northern Ice remaining is significantly larger than last year. If you click through the diagram to the main source you can evaluate for yourself the Northern Hemisphere Ice Extent for any year. Clearly, we are not in one of those catastrophic warming scenarios. And if the predictions of another decade or more of cooling are accurate (and they are more accurate than anything the Church of Al Gore/IPCC has ever produced) then we will find out for sure who was being hysterical and spinning the data.

    Check out this stunning story of scientific misconduct from the AGW Team in defense of their hockey stick:

    There’s some math. It’s unfortunate the story is so hard to tell, but the evidence is there for those who understand it.

    The war to restore sanity to environmental policy is just beginning.

    Here we have two Presidential candidates, neither of whom has recognized the new paradigm, neither of whom will allow drilling in ANWR, no doubt because to them carbon dioxide is still considered to be a cause of something nebulously catastrophic. The media will abet the cause for the environmentalist-socialists by ignoring the recent cooling and new findings.

    We must succeed in getting the powers that be to de-criminalize CO2 by getting off the backs of industry in
    reversing some of the egregious regulations in force and pending. The freight train that is propelled by CO2 hysteria has a great deal of inertia, and is going to require a tremendous effort to stop.

    Thanks to blogs like this one, battles are now being won by the good guys at the water cooler, but as usual, our government languishes.

    gwood: good points.

    I go into fits of rage when I hear the news or someone going on and on and on about “carbon”

    It’s completely ridiculous.. when in human history have so many smart people allowed themselves to be convinced of something as false as this.

    Well, they are also placing the polar bear on in “threatened” status when the population of them are at record high levels because someone’s computer model run 50 years into future predicts that there won’t be any ice. As if ice is a polar bear nutrient or something. If there is no ice, the seals will have to come onto shore to rest … exactly where the bears will be waiting for them. And the bears can swim for a hundred miles so they can reach offshore islands easily.

    I should build a computer model that shows Democrats evolving into three-headed dinosaurs and using that as justification for banning the party.
