NOAA says December was really hot in the Arctic and it was your fault.
Given that there isn’t any sunlight in the Arctic in December, it is pretty incredible that people calling themselves scientists would attribute the relatively mild air to the greenhouse effect – which depends on sunlight.
The second half of December was record cold in the Eastern US, and even the New York Times understood that Arctic air in Florida means cold Arctic air is being displaced by milder air from the mid-latitudes.
During the ice age scare in 1977, Alaska was warmer than Florida – for the same reason. Home purchases in Florida came with “FREE LIFETIME SNOW REMOVAL.”
Before the 1970’s ice age scare, the Arctic warmed 10 degrees in the first half of the 20th century and glaciers were rapidly disappearing.
If NOAA climate scientists were actual scientists, they would know that Arctic temperatures are cyclical, and have nothing to do with CO2 or humans.
The level of mindless peer-reviewed fraud coming out of academia and government is really quite remarkable!
