1974 – Polar Ice Loss Caused By Global Cooling

In 1974, scientists explained that polar ice loss was caused by global cooling.

Now they say thickening Antarctic sea ice is killing penguins and is due to global warming.

Mass starvation has wiped out thousands of penguin chicks in Antarctica, with unusually thick sea ice forcing their parents to forage further for food

they have been declining in the Antarctic region more generally where climate change has taken its toll, with shifting ice reducing habitat while warming seas affect their prey.

In climate science – warming causes ice to grow, and cooling causes it to melt.

And scientists at the National Academy of Sciences were busy poisoning beagles, when they weren’t doing junk climate science.

    The Adélie penguins.

    Just last year an extensive survey http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S2351989416301172 of their numbers and breeding population found they are doing just fine overall:
    “The Adélie penguin breeding population in East Antarctica at the time of surveys was estimated to be 2.87 (2.69–3.32) million individuals =
    1.43 million breeding pairs,……..”

    Anyone that claims the expansion of sea ice which led to the failure of one particular colony of many to have a successful breeding season is due to climate change and then try to imply that this is an accurate reflection of the overall population is just lying.

    The WWF of course is doing just that.

      Have you ever smelled the Penguin exhibit at Sea World? They’re not exactly as cute and cuddly as the pictures would lead you to believe

        Just was at the Indy zoo this summer. They have a descent penguin exhibit but now days it’s all behind glass. Didn’t used to be though.

    Wow…pretty much all I can say over that brilliance by them. Like it is right out of 1984.

    Hey ???

    Wasn’t last year one of the smallest Antarctic sea ice extents in many years?
