On March 7, the usual band of Arctic fraudsters announced that after months of ice growth, darkness and cold, Arctic sea ice had “sunk” to a record low.
Since then, Arctic sea ice has been much higher than recent years, and they have completely lost interest in it. This year brought the smallest melt of the last decade, and summer temperatures were below normal every day at the North Pole.
But that isn’t quite true. Now they just lie and/or spin.
Experts have now turned their attention to the Antarctic (which they ignored for the past 35 years as the ice expanded.) The bad news for these fraudsters is that when Antarctic sea ice declines, Arctic sea ice increases – as seen in the 1990 IPCC report. This indicates that whatever drives ice behavior, is not CO2.
One more reason why NOAA now pretends they don’t have any satellite data prior to 1979. Government climate experts are professional fraudsters, not scientists.
Which NFL team came in 8th last year? Did their ranking make the news?
What’s the NFL?
A waste of resources.
No Friggen Longer?
Here’s hoping it didn’t.
The coverage of this kneeling drama is absurd with people on both sides being so triggered over something that in the grand scheme of things is trivial. I think the players kneeling are clueless (they are defining irony) yet there are far more important matters going on than a bunch of spoiled millionaires kneeling.
The kneeling thing right now is the mother of all distractions and Americans as a whole should probably take a step back and wonder why the masses don’t put as much importance or show as much interest in things that actually matter like say the 20 trillion in debt that keeps expanding 750+ billion a year. Pretty sure that is more important than kneeling athletes.
Any gesture, speech, or symbolism that endorses the BLM lie needs to be stamped out. We have an extreme crime and violence problem that we are not allowed to discuss because of the BLM lies and PC BS, and if we cannot discuss it we cannot fix it.
The kneeling is a huge problem, in that it perpetuates the big lie.
And who is suffering from that which can’t be discussed? In general, violent crimes and homicides have dropped greatly since the 1990’s. That still holds true for most Americans, but not for blacks. Especially those living in big cities. Homicide rates are now back up to where they were 10 to 20 years ago. Young black men, just 6% to 7% of the population, now commit the majority of murders in this country. They are also the majority of the victims. The number I saw was 67%.
Consider the social implications of this. These guys are the fathers of the coming generations of young blacks. It is truly a cycle of despair that will never be broken if it isn’t faced honestly and openly.
And I promise you I am not speaking from just a bunch of stats and internet articles. I have seen this and the affects there of up close and personal. The big losers are the children. It is always the children who suffer.
Where is the national discussion on this?
but Mark……it’s black culture
We are all losers to the inner city thugocracy. We all pay. Some pay with their lives, some with their homes, and all through taxes and racist legislation.
Violent crime has been increasing. I attribute this to the O and his ” you are a victim” divisive identity politics.
Black people need to stop playing the victimization card. After all, they were freed over 150 years ago and Jim Crow ended 50 years ago. Every new immigrant group, including black Africans immediately leap frogs over our homegrown black people. It is time to look inward and determine why that is happening. White people cannot fix the problem for blacks if they are unwilling to compete like that rest of society.
It is a segment of the black culture any way. A couple of years ago I had the opportunity to spend some time visiting a county jail on the out skirts of Atlanta and talking to the inmates. It was an eye opening experience to say the least. There is a culture among young black people most people in this country have no clue about. It is as foreign to the experience of the average person of any color as an aboriginal culture in the Amazon basin. I see these highly educated black people on tv pontificate on the subject and I realize they either don’t know it exists or they refuse to acknowledge it. It is a frightening and ugly culture. These are people who revolve in and out of jail and or prison but that is not a punishment to them. It is a freaking vacation. They honestly do not care.
What needs to be pointed out is that kneeling is a mark of SUBMISSION.
They are SUBMITTING to the American flag,
Thus making SLAVES of themselves… this is their CHOICE.
Most real Americans would show PRIDE in their flag, not SUBMISSION.
I have brought up the fact that the Arctic and Antarctic are 180 out of phase with each other for years. Glad to see a post on it.
The past has to be erased.
The IPCC First Assessment Report does not support cAGW. It demonstrates that nothing unusual/unprecedented was happening towards the end of the 20th century.
Of course, since then, there has been much revision and past evidence/data hid from public gaze.
The statues of Al Gore need to be taken down and erased from history!
About the DOE data that goes back to the mid-1920’s, does this measurement/assessment consider Arctic sea ice extent for both the Eastern and Western Hemispheres? I ask because I’d imagine measurements/observations for regions outside the US & Canada in the 20’s and 30’s would have been difficult (i.e., ice formed in the Barents, Laptev, and East Siberian Sea)?
Another question – I’ve learned a lot about iceberg formation from this blog (actually everything I believed was wrong) and wondered…is there any link (I’ll even take correlation) between reduced sea ice extent and iceberg formation?
Not much of a relationship. Sea ice forms in winter and melts in summer. How much depends on weather conditions. Icebergs form when glaciers (or ice shelves) calve at seafronts. Glaciers and ice shelves move to the sea at rates determined primarily by past snowfall higher up inland (more precipitation=>more ice upglacier=>faster creep=>more calving).
Thanks for this. Being a layman, I held the traditional assumption of iceberg formation (likely from years of indoctrination from the left). I assumed that you had a polar ice cap and ice shelf extension that – as the climate is warming – is melting thin and breaking off into icebergs. In fact, this is not how icebergs are formed. However, you can see the logic in my question – as the left screams “Iceberg because of Anthropogenic climate change” they need to be challenged if they even know how icebergs are formed.
Glacier means “river of ice”.
They flow, and the coastal one empty into the sea.
Polar cyclones can push vast amounts of sea ice/bergs to lower latitudes also.
I am curious. Humans exhale CO2 at 40,0000 ppm, right? Has anyone calculated how many tonnes of CO2 the 7 billion+ people on this planet exhale each day and what impact on climate, ice, temperature that can be attributed to? Hummm, how many people does it take to equal a 1 HP IC engine, or how many 1 HP IC engines does it take to equal 1 person? Just curious…….
Humans produce exactly the same amount of carbon as they consume
Some I know must need to go on I diet then ;-)
Except for the CO2 used to grow, process and transport the food. I see another article making the rounds about how we’ve underestimated the amount of methane produced by cow farts.
These alarmists seem to never quit, in future years they’ll still be saying, ‘This is the ump-teenth lowest Arctic sea ice extent on record’… and on and on
I’m waiting to see what happens when the sea ice extent to start climbing again.
I bet some of them will turn around and start bed-wetting about the dangers of increasing sea ice !! :-)
