Thank you!

People have been extremely generous this month, and are making it possible for me to not work, and do what I want to do with climate. I have been focused on content, and have not done a good job thanking people individually. Working on that today.

Peer-Reviewed Ignorance And Hearsay

When in a pinch, Zeke Hausfather is the go-to-man for climate disinformation. Here is one section of his latest work. He claims ignorance about the historical retreat of glaciers, and bases his argument around hearsay, misinformation and the beliefs of people who have been consistently wrong.

APS Physics | FPS | Climate Change: Robust Evidence of Causes and Impacts

He could have gone to the Glacier Bay National Park website, and found out that Alaska’s largest glacier retreated 45 miles from 1750 to 1880.

Glacier Bay’s Glacial History – Glacier Bay National Park & Preserve (U.S. National Park Service)

But Glacier Bay hardly retreated at all over the last 50 years.

He could have gone to the USGS web site and found out that Glacier National Park has been retreating since 1850.

History of Glaciers in Glacier National Park

Experts predicted Glacier National Park would be ice free by 1948.

He could have gone to the NASA web site, and found out that the Jakobshavn Glacier (which is now advancing) retreated very rapidly from 1851 to 1964, and then hardly at all through the end of the 20th century. Over the last three years it has been advancing.

When the glacier started advancing in 2016, climate experts were saying it was “retreating at galloping speed.” These are the same experts whom Zeke uses for his sources of  hearsay.

Credibility Of The Press Underwater By 2020

The press claims New Zealand will be underwater by 2050.

From 1900 to 2000, the tide gauge at Auckland showed very little sea level rise, and almost all of that occurred before 1955.

“Powerful” Junk Science

A new study claims that CFC’s not only destroyed the Ozone layer, but they also overheated the Arctic.

Closing the Ozone Hole Helped Slow Arctic Warming – Scientific American

The authors believe that a 0.3 w/m² increase in downwelling longwave radiation caused this. That is less than 0.1% of the total DLWR.

IFL Science says that CFC’s caused ice loss between 1955 and 2005.

Had they done any actual research, they would have known sea ice was at the century low in 1955.

The New York Times reported massive ice loss in 1958, and predicted an ice-free Arctic within a generation.

Climate alarmists want people to believe that the large amount of multi-year ice in the early 1980s were normal.

But in 1922, the ice between the north pole and Alaska was “thin, rotten, young” ice.

Arctic temperatures correlate with the AMO, not greenhouse gases.

Congress Gives NOAA Money To Pollute The Atmsophere

Congress has given NOAA money to study ways to pollute the atmosphere in order to stop “global warming”

NOAA Gets Go-Ahead to Study Controversial Climate Plan B – Scientific American

Record cold is being blamed on global warming, and experts want to make it even colder by blocking sunlight, and restricting availability of fossil fuels.

A Closer Look at the Polar Vortex’s Dangerously Cold Winds – The New York Times

The plan is to run the world off solar panels while polluting the atmosphere, and thus reduce the amount of sunlight available to those solar panels. And in the process, cut down tens of millions of trees to make room for the solar panels.

Forty-five years ago, climatologists wanted to melt the Arctic ice cap in order to save the world from global cooling.

I fought hard for the Clean Air Act, and now Congress wants to pollute the atmosphere in order to stop an imaginary problem blamed on non-pollutant CO2. A cheaper and safer solution would be to instruct NOAA to stop tampering with the data.
