Featured Climate Fraudster Of The Day – David Barber

David Barber says thick multi-year ice which ruined his global warming expedition in the Hudson Bay, is due to global warming.

Climate change study in Canada’s Hudson Bay thwarted by climate change | World news | The Guardian

Eight years ago,  he said multi-year ice was effectively gone from the Arctic, and completely gone from Hudson Bay. He said it was due to global warming.

Climate alarmists are shameless liars and frauds. They run exactly the sort of operation which RICO laws were written for.

    Hey, we are a country where the entire media complex has been following a ‘story’ 24/7 for 6 months that there is absolutely zero evidence of Presidential malfeasance on any subject, therefore he must be impeached immediately if not assassinated. Why would one think a little lying about the climate should be of concern to any citizen?

  2. Douglas Hoyt says:

    Today is June 14 and the Barrow sea ice webcam shows the shoreline still packed with ice. It seems rather late in the season for so much ice to be around.


  3. I saved ice maps from the east coast as I was tracking polar bear sightings since January.

    As my post shows, the ice developed from thin first year ice to thick first year ice off the southern Labrador coast, in place (as it does every year) but a big storm in May drove a big piece of thick first year ice against the north shore of Newfoundland, mixing icebergs in with it.


    This suggests either Barber can’t tell multiyear pack ice from thick glacier ice from icebergs at a glance OR satellites cannot tell multiyear pack ice from icebergs.

    The ice charts show no sign of “old ice” (ie multiyear ice) until after the May storm, just lots of icebergs.

    Oddly, the charts show “old ice” after the storm that is almost certainly icebergs mixed and compressed into thick first year ice that developed in place (as earlier news reports suggest), as no multiyear ice is seen drifting down from the Arctic.

      Great! thanks for posting your response here.

      Dr. Crockford,
      Thanks for the link to your excellent blog. Excellent level of detail and background on the ice in your part of the world.

    • Griff says:

      The issue here is of course the storms in the arctic through a warmer and stormier winter…

      and I think that there’s a lot of exported ice coming down Baffin Bay which you seem to overlook in your account.

      The key point anyway is that this is NOT caused by any ‘recovery’ of the arctic ice or any change to a colder phase of climate.

      This is caused by climate change.

      • gator69 says:

        And climate change is a natural process, and nobody died.

        Why do you hate poor brown people Ms Griff?

      • AndyG55 says:

        The issue is that you are a moronic idiot, griff.. !

        But you are right , in your own ignorant way…

        ..The recovery from the extreme levels of Arctic sea ice , a small way back toward the MUCH LOWER Holocene average, does seem to have stalled.

        Pity, because less summer sea ice would have been a MASSIVE BENEFIT to all those living up there.

        Travel, freight, commerce, fishing, drilling, tourism,… all would have been possible for longer each year. What an absolute boon that would have been !!!

        But you DON’T CARE about the welfare and livelihood of people living up there , do you, griff.

        All you care about is spreading your propaganda LIES and MISINFORMATION.

        That makes you a particularly PUTRID, SICK-MINDED human being, if indeed you are a human being.

      • Ah Griff! Give it up…

        “and I think that there’s a lot of exported ice coming down Baffin Bay which you seem to overlook in your account.”

        Except nothing like that shows up on the ice charts. Exported multiyear ice WOULD show up if it was there: it would be brown mixed in with the green first year ice. The only reason it wouldn’t show up would be if the satellites can’t tell broken-up multiyear ice from icebergs.

        Perhaps they can’t. But oddly, no one over the last few months – not even the Coast Guard – has suggested that the “icebergs” floating all around Newfoundland are not actually towering bits of glacier ice but multiyear ice from the High Arctic pack ice – until Barber showed up and issued a press release.

        “The key point anyway is that this is NOT caused by any ‘recovery’ of the arctic ice or any change to a colder phase of climate.”

        I never said anything of the kind. You are arguing with a voice in your head, not me.

        • AndyG55 says:

          “You are arguing with a voice in your head, not me.”

          I suppose there could be a voice in griff’s head.

          Would be a manic echo, though !!

        • RAH says:

          We all know that what Griff “thinks” is far better data than all the information and ice charts you so kindly provided Dr. Crockford! ;-)

          BTW I have noticed that the Arctic Sea Ice hand wringer Jim Hunt that used to visit here frequently has been MIA (missing in action) with no posts on this blog for months now. Instead we get Griff and the occasional drive by insulter. The quality of the Natural Variability deniers has declined considerably of late.

        • Stewart Pid says:

          Re voices in Griffs head …. there is a whole choir in there singing the mantra of the true believers.
          Griff is nuttier than rat shit in a peanut factory!

        • rw says:

          Dear me. Griff is beginning to resemble the Black Knight in Monty Python’s Holy Grail.

      • Gerald Machnee says:

        **and I think that there’s a lot of exported ice coming down Baffin Bay which you seem to overlook in your account.**

        Yes, Griff you and barber are still drinking the CAGW Kool-Aid
        Time to quit dreaming and face reality

      • sunsettommy says:


        Did you know a ZERO Summer ice prediction, for this year was made by uber warmist Wadham’s?

        From the Guardian,

        Next year or the year after, the Arctic will be free of ice’

        “Ice-free means the central basin of the Arctic will be ice-free and I think that that is going to happen in summer 2017 or 2018.”


        He said similar in previous years…….

        Still going to follow these irresponsible scientists who keeps making a fool of themselves?

        • sunsettommy says:

          Griff, has ignored these:

          New Paper Indicates There Is More Arctic Sea Ice Now Than For Nearly All Of The Last 10,000 Years – See more at: http://notrickszone.com/2017/03/02/new-paper-indicates-there-is-more-arctic-sea-ice-now-than-for-nearly-all-of-the-last-10000-years/#comments

          and, this:

          “Between 1000 and 1300 average summer temperatures were about 1°C higher than today, with the mean annual temperature higher by perhaps 4°C in a largely ice-free Arctic. Eric the Red, a renowned world citizen of that time, has been much maligned as the first progressive publicity man for giving Greenland a false image in order to attract settlers; but in truth, the southwest of that vast country was warmer and greener by far than at any time until the Fieldfares Turdus pilaris arrived there in the mid-1930s. The sea-temperature of the Atlantic was higher than it has been since, and there appears to have been none or very little ice to hinder the Vikings’ communications between Iceland, Greenland, Newfoundland and Labrador (Mowat 1965). Indeed Brooks (1926) considers that the polar ice-cap may have disappeared entirely during the summer months, to build anew each winter.”


          I have more similar science research for you to ignore.

  4. Andy DC says:

    The entire global warming/climate change establishment, now getting increasingly crazed and desperate due to Mother Nature’s lack of cooperation, is now creating their very own “theater of the absurd”.

  5. CheshireRed says:

    How many times have these people seen Mother Nature contradict their own previous statements or claims? I’ve completely lost count yet here they go yet again.
    We here endless claims of ‘climate catastrophe’ and ‘climate change is here, now’, yet frankly nothing unusual of any consequence is occurring anywhere, literally nothing. The whole climate cabal has become a bad joke and following Trump’s Paris dump I think these people realise they’re closer than at any point in the past 30 years to losing this debate. They’re very, very concerned their gravy train could be diverted into sidings at any moment, and they’re right to be.

  6. frederik wisse says:

    This gentleman is a no brainer . Who is able to think that more ice is caused by globul warming ? Here ideology supersedes reality .

  7. toorightmate says:

    When I buy a bag of ice at the supermarket, how will I know if it is multiyear ice or not?
    Is multiyear ice Halal certified?

    BTW the lunatic woman that tried to run Republican congressman off the road gets no punishment. http://therightscoop.com/liberals-praise-woman-for-trying-to-run-gop-lawmaker-off-the-road-over-obamacare-repeal/

  9. Edmonton Al says:

    Dr. Crockford:
    I hope that you will submit your findings to the President of the University of Manitoba, along with Tony’s website link.
    Barber needs to get his debunking sent to the U of M Faculty.
    If someone like me sends a e-mail it just get deleted.
