More Bad News For Climate Alarmists

Climate scientists have a terrible reputation and forecast record, so they try to piggy back off of the good work of actual scientists. You can’t fake an eclipse, but you can fake temperature graphs.

The hits just keep coming!  Nothing but cold in the Arctic forecast.

The Navy is predicting little change in ice extent over the next week.

The Navy previously forecast an ice-free Arctic by 2014.

NASA’s top climate prophet agreed.

    So the Mayans were able to predict the RWP, the MWP, and the LIA?

    Huh. I did not know that.

  2. Rah says:

    I have no doubt that somewhere there is a primitive tribe that will call their Shaman out to bring back the sun because an eclipse is a sign of evil. Alarmists have a lot more in common with that tribe and the shaman than they know.

  3. Steve Parker says:

    I wonder if the Crystal Serenity will make it through this year. We’ll find out in a couple of weeks.

    “The Navy is predicting little change in ice extent over the next week.”

    If they are correct, it will really upset the Arctic sea-ice bed-wetters….. Diddums. ! :-)

    Both MASIE and NSIDC show a distinct levelling off of the usual downward trend over the last couple of days.

    If this levelling off continues, minimum could end up being above 5 Wadhams,

    maybe even 5.5 ! :-)

  5. R. Shearer says:

    The mainstream c_lie_mate science is like Columbus using his natural knowledge of a pending lunar eclipse to fool the natives in Jamaica, or so the story goes.

  6. Fred Harwood says:

    Eclipses never fail to remind me of Mark Twain’s “A Connecticut Yankee…” and the get out of jail free card.

    • annieoakley says:

      I have to re-read “A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court.” Mark Twain is always ahead of his time.

  7. Louis Hooffstetter says:

    Are these Witch Doctors seriously claiming that just because real scientists (astronomers) can accurately predict an eclipse, they are equally as competent at predicting changes in climate?

    Puhleeze! I’m no climastrologist, but I can predict the sun will rise tomorrow morning.

  8. Kris Johanson says:

    I keep reading Hansen is a modern day prophet. I think what the esteemed Congressman said was, “we consider Hansen a modern day profit…”, as in profit-center, as in “The business of government”, as in $4 Trillion in Revenue (for those outside the U.S. that’s 4 thousand thousand thousand thousand), as in $4 Trillion to spend each year without being encumbered by any Profit & Loss statements, return on investment reports, SWOT analyses, cost-to-completes, time & motion studies, cash flow forecasts, or any of those pesky things most people have to worry about

  9. Robert B says:
    I thought that this prediction stuff was so last century.
    “I’ve wanted to be a scientist since I was five years old.

    My idea of a scientist was someone in a lab, making hypotheses and testing theories. We often think of science only as a linear, objective process. This is also the way that science is presented in peer reviewed journal articles – a study begins with a research question or hypothesis, followed by methods, results and conclusions.

    It turns out that my work now as a climate scientist doesn’t quite gel with the way we typically talk about science and how science works.

    Climate change, and doing climate change research, has changed the way I see and do science. Here are five points that explain why.”

  10. Advocatus Diaboli says:

    I got a real kick out of that NY Times tweet. If astronomers had a prediction record as dismal as do climatologists, they would have long since been defunded and laughed out of polite company.

    Tony, have you done a video putting together a progression of these absurd AGW predictions over the decades?

  11. griff says:

    And yet the extent still declines and is still in contention for second/third lowest, beating 2016.

    this isn’t a recovery, is it?

    and you said yourself this has been a cold season in the central arctic – and still it melts more than last year…

    • gator69 says:

      this isn’t a recovery, is it?

    • AndyG55 says:

      You poor little bed-wetter.

      You know its WAY above what it has been for 90-95% of the last 10,000 years.

      The TRUTH will let you stay dry, griff.

      No more need for your chicken-little soddenness.

      btw. NSIDC has current day above 2007, 2011, 2012, and 2016

      MASIE has current day above 2007, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2015, and 2016

      The Central Arctic is NOT melting more than last year.

      You are LYING again, griff.

      It is in fact have a great deal of problem melting.

      Now, be a good little cretin, and go and get your nappy changed.

      • Griff says:

        yep – pick just part of the region, why don’t you

        • AndyG55 says:

          You really are a moron, griff.

          YOU were the one who mentioned central Arctic region.

          NSIDC has current day above 2007, 2011, 2012, and 2016

          MASIE has current day above 2007, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2015, and 2016

          Yet still your bed-wetting continues.

        • AndyG55 says:

          Actually , I’m guessing you are wetting your bed, because you see your reason for using Arctic sea-ice as your excuse for your bed-wetting is not going the way you want it to.

          Perpetual bed-wetting.

          Your life’s work, griff… and you are so, so proud of it.

    • sunsettommy says:


      You keep talking about a supposed recovery argument,while many here keep showing you the decline stopped a decade ago.

      Stop with the Strawman fallacy!

      • Griff says:

        But it didn’t tommy…
        The extent charts and volume charts show it is declining.

        Or are you crowing about the fact that we’ve had over a decade at lower than 2006 levels and billing it as a recovery?

        Or have you all given up on the ‘its a cycle’ argument?

        • AndyG55 says:

          LYING again griff. !!

          It was a recovery, from the extreme highs of the 1970;s and LIA.

          Unfortunately the AMO is turning, and the sun is having a snooze, so that recovery from the COLDEST period in 10,000 years has come to a halt

          Deep in DENIAL and IGNORANCE, aren’t you griff..

          You have to keep DENYING history, so you can keep your bed nice and wet.

          You really are like a chicken-little with its head chopped off, running around mindlessly.

        • sunsettommy says:

          You have been shown this and similar around 20 times by now:

          You lied as usual.

    • AndyG55 says:

      “this isn’t a recovery, is it?”

      No, unfortunately the recovery from the LIA, the COLDEST period in 10,000 years, seems to have come to a halt.

    • Robert B says:

      Griff, the experts predicted it to disappear rather than not recover to a higher extent than for most of the Holocene.

  12. Rah says:

    Recovery to what? And why is it so important? Greenland has had a cold and very snowy summer so potential SLR shouldn’t be keeping anyone up at night.

    • Griff says:

      That depends on whether the glaciers calved more than the snow added…

      And this is an untypical year, compared to recent decades

      • Rah says:

        Either it shows up in SLR rate or it doesn’t. Show it because I don’t see it.

      • Rah says:

        Since you didn’t answer the question. What are the ideal levels of SMB and sea ice extent and why?

        • gator69 says:

          There is no ideal level, this is all just smoke and mirrors. Leftists love their agendas more than poor brown people.

      • AndyG55 says:

        Yep recent decades and in fact the last couple of hundred years have been a period of COLD, and EXTREME ice levels , in Greenland , as well as the Arctic

        Greenland is only just a tiny amount down from its highest levels in 8000 years.

        Why to you continue to DENY this fact, griff.

        Is it because you would then have no reason to keep wetting your bed?

  13. Jimmy Haigh. says:

    In South East Asia and China they bang pots and pans and make as much noise as possible to scare away the sun and moon eating dragons. It always works.

  14. Stewart Pid says:

    Griff once again goes the strawman route and sez there is no recovery… WTF.
    No one said there is a pending recovery … the entire post is about shills LIKE U GRIFF who claim that arctic is melting at record rates and soon to be all free of ice. The post is about all the clowns that stated a year during which the arctic would be ice free. Griff you clueless twit … stop claiming that summer in the N Hemisphere is a recent and unusual phenomena.
