Missed It By “That” Much

The world’s leading climate experts and Nobel Prize winners predicted the Arctic would be ice-free sometime between 2013 and 2018.

    Ms Griff: Don’t tell me another alarmist Arctic prediction failed.
    Tony: Another alarmist Arctic prediction failed.
    Ms Griff: I asked you not to tell me that!

    Gore looks like a total imbecile staring at his hands like that. If it looks like an imbecile and makes makes imbecilic predictions, it is definitely and imbecile. To think he came so close to being President makes my blood curdle. Of course, the other imbecile that won was not a whole lot better.

      Apparently, the smarter people have chosen not to run for public office. We’re toast … but not from global warming.

      It has a reason.
      He first thought he was there to show some Hand Shadow Puppet theater for 3 year olds(he worked for 2 years on that performance and hand horeography) but entered the wrong room full of
      mad scientist and realised it is easier to fool them than a bunch of little children – and it is much better paid.

      He’s simply looking at the blood on his hands, as he should.

    It looks like CAGW may have finally jumped the shark:

    The U.N.’s Doomsday Climate Clock

    Maybe predicting the apocalypse isn’t the best political strategy.

    Have we reached peak alarmism on climate change? The question occurs after the muted reaction last week to the latest forecast from the United Nation’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. In case you hadn’t heard we’re all doomed, yet the world mostly yawned. This is less complacency than creeping scientific and political realism.

    Ms Griff: “But their prediction was only off by 5,000,000 square km’s ! Look at all that warm arctic air pushing the cold air down to Texas!” “That’s climate change”

  5. mopar440 says:

    Ms Griff: “What about Alaska, what about Alaska, there’s climate change there!

  6. Jeff L. says:

    Sorry about that Chief!

  7. Disillusioned says:

    Griff doesn’t care about reality. Nor does Phil. It’s all about protection of belief.

    CO2 doesn’t do what was predicted by the hyped-pothesis.

    Disillusionment is hard. However, disillusionment is good. Disillusionment brings freedom.

  8. angech says:

    Look at the Beaufort go, go, go
    Massive refreeze due in that area

  9. Squidly says:

    I am getting more pissed off by the day. They promised me new Arctic golf courses .. and I see none!They promised !!!

    • Gator says:

      Sorry Squidly, but it bears repeating that those courses are dominated and restricted to old white guys. They are bruining it for everyone.

    • Steven Fraser says:

      Sure. Your foursome has a tee time in Greenland tomorrow morning 8:05.

      Go with the floe! Wear your woolies.

  10. Mr Sir says:

    I love how you’re acting like you’ve “owned” the alarmists by saying the arctic isn’t ice-free yet, even though the sea ice extent in 2018 is still far below average.

    • Gator says:

      Which average Sir Mister? The cherrypicked and meaningless average starting in1979? Or the more realistic and meaningful average of the past 9000 years?

      You and the rest of your flock of bleating sheep are sooooo precious! LOL

      • Mr Sir says:

        The “average” I’m referring to is the 1981-2000 average in the graph shown in this post.

        • Gator says:

          So the meaningless cherrypicked alarmist “average”.

          Why do you suppose that grantologists and climanumerologists choose such an insignificant average?

          We are about to see just how honest/intelligent Sir Mister is!

    • spike55 says:

      You slur, are an IGNORANT FOOL

      You think the “average” is relevant just since the anomalous extreme of the late 1970s and LIA

      The “average” of the current inter-glacial is MUCH LOWER THAN the current high extent

      FACT IS, the current extent is well within THE TOP 10% of the last 10,000 years.. It is ANOMALOUSLY HIGH.

      You really shouldn’t remain so base-level IGNORANT, mr slur

      Try not to be a CLIMATE HISTORY DENIER all your feeble-minded existence.

    • Robert Austin says:

      “still far below average”

      Define far.
      Define average.
      And finally compare to the predictions of your Wadhams, Gores and Sereezes.

    • GCsquared says:

      In fairness, your point is well-taken: the “average” is the line inside the gray 2 standard deviation region, and recent ice levels are indeed well below that. If ice variation were truly random, then being outside the 2 standard deviation gray band would be something that random fluctuation could explain only 5% of the time, so the observed deviation is very significant. And so it has been, for several years running.
      This having been said, to claim this is a trend caused by CO2, you have to know what the variation would be without CO2, over the last 200 years at least, to see what solar orbital variation might cause, and over hundreds of thousands of years, to observe effects due to cosmic ray variation moving in and out of galactic arms. Do we have such ice volume data during the “new ice age” scare of the 1970’s, or the little ice age of the 1870’s?
      I think it’s really premature at this point to believe at a policy level that dropping CO2 levels is going to make a difference, and even whether cooling the earth would be a good thing. THAT debate is the one we should be having. Best-effort models shouldn’t be believed until they can explain non-anthropogenic climate variation, specifically the Roman and Medieval warmings, and the Maunder and Dalton mimima over the last 2 millenia. Get back when you’ve done that.
