On the contrary, temperatures have been falling steadily since the 1940s in Greenland, and the polar ice cap is getting thicker and thicker,” Lars Prahm, director of the Danish Meteorological Institute, said at the close of the annual meeting of Nordic Meteorological Institutes.
Mr Prahm, the meeting’s host, dismissed predictions by some scientists that the ice in Greenland, the world’s largest ice-covered island, would melt gradually, causing oceans to rise and flooding low-lying areas around the world, including Bangladesh, the Maldives and some Pacific states.

He may have been responding to this wildly fraudulent claim three years earlier.

NOAA climate scientists have since erased all the ice data before the 1979 peak, because it wrecked their global warming scam.
Unfortunately for NOAA climate fraudsters, the 1990 IPCC report documented the data they threw out.
Similarly, NOAA and NASA have erased the fall of Greenland temperatures from the 1940’s through 1990.
In 1989, NOAA’s Tom Karl said most global warming occurred before 1919, and that Earth cooled from 1921 to 1979.

Global warming is the biggest scam in science history, driven by tens of billions of dollars of government money – which has completely corrupted science.
So the Maldives will be completely underwater by next year. Meanwhile Saudi Arabia is investing billions developing real estate there. Yes…BILLIONS
I wish it was only tens of billions of dollars wasted…
Lost Opportunity: The world reportedly “invested” $1 billion a day last year to fight global warming. What a waste. Properly invested, a billion a day would yield productive results.
According to the Climate Policy Initiative, $359 billion was invested in 2012 to limit global warming. That’s a nice pile of cash. But of course it wasn’t enough to do the job. Media portal EurActiv.com reports that total was “barely half the $700 billion per year that the World Economic Forum has said is needed to tackle climate change.”
Rather than waste other people’s money, governments should let people keep what’s theirs so they’re able to invest or spend as they please. Which brings up the question: How much can a billion dollars a day buy?
It would buy nearly a million shares of wealth-generating Google stock. Or start 100,000 businesses — at the average $10,000-per-startup cost that’s been established by Wells Fargo. Those businesses would hire hundreds of thousands of workers.
More interested in the “humanitarian” possibilities? Consider how much clean water a billion dollars a day could provide for the Third World masses who die in the millions each year for lack of it.
Think of how those dollars could prevent malaria, which kills more than 650,000 a year — and one child every minute. The malaria control funding gap in Africa — $3.6 billion — would be closed in less than four days.
A billion a day could also develop a drug a day to save lives, ease suffering and generate wealth.
If man-made global warming were a real threat, it might be worth a billion a day to curb its effects. But it’s simply conjecture, not hard science. It’s a chimera that doesn’t deserve our attention, much less our money.
Pushing CAGW is nothing short of genocide.
If that money was from governments, then certainly “invested” is the wrong term; extorted maybe.
But that money went somewhere, most probably in the pockets of the fraud artists, but they hire people too. Now they may be working for nothing, and doing no good for humanity, but they get to feed their families.
How about we not confiscate the money in the first place and leave it with the poeple, who if they did not have to give the $10,000 to the government, may start a business on their own. Now they have skin in the game.
Now they may be working for nothing, and doing no good for humanity, but they get to feed their families.
Their familes are in no danger of starving to death, they can find honest work, or a handout. These folks have no such options…
Nah-this children do not need the money.
Climate Scientists,Banks participating in this scam and people like Al Gore do.
A thousand “AGW will kill us all”-scientists with failed predictions is not enough.
We need another thousand ‘experts’ spouting the very same BS with the very same wrong predictions
(because they are not aloud to get results that do not follow the agenda)
The big change in ice extent is in summer lows. Winter maxes are not changing that much. This means most of the “decrease” is recovered every winter. Since the year is not getting any longer, the only way for more ice to be recovered is if the winters are colder. An inconvenient truth for the one world communism crowd.
Looks to me like it’s working exactly the way it’s supposed to…..moving heat/moisture to the Arctic where it blows it off…..and there’s record snow in Alaska, Russia, and Europe
In other bad news, the arctic will soon be overrun with drilling rigs….
“Trump’s announcement that soon oil companies will be allowed to explore there is about as a big a provocation as if he’d turned up to the Sierra Club’s summer vegan barbecue, spit roasted a baby manatee, and served it up with a snail darter reduction and spotted owl sauce.“
Seems that in 1991 the totalitarian AGW truth was in tis infancy and certain scientists hadn’t be indoctrinated and said things they wouldn’t dare nowadays.
With the Red vs Blue team discussion on the table, we need Congress (while the R’s are in control) to conduct week long highly publicized hearings; the first being a major presentation of all of the old studies, reports and news coverage of the empirical evidence of our dramatic and always changing climate and weather patterns during the later part of the 19th and the first 75-80 years of the 20th Century (prior to any ‘consensus’ view of any observable/measurable human footprint on GW, AGW) – the first 10-20,000 documents of evidence compliments of Tony (and others).
The second week would be comprised presenting the evidence of the adjustments/changes to the historical record.
Wealthy contributors should play in, by investing a few $hundreds of billions of dollars in advertising the event, in advance.
It’s the perfect time – for the perfect storm – the perfect and final awakening.
I’ve been staring at that blinking Nuuk, Greenland temperature anomaly chart (raw versus “adjusted”). There’s something very strange there – it appears that the entire data set for the decade the 1980s was just thrown out after the “adjustments” were applied! Each point on the graph represents and entire ** year ** of temperature data. So someone must have sabotaged the Nuuk thermometer station for entire decade before someone noticed? Really??
