Canada’s Leading Expert : Arctic Ice-Free by 2015

“Things are happening much faster in the Arctic. I think it will be summer ice-free by 2015,” said David Barber, an Arctic climatologist at the University of Manitoba.

Missed it by “that much”

Incompetence and fraud pays extremely well in the climate science business.

Dr. Barber raised over $38M in research funding over the past 5 years.

    This was from a 2008 International Arctic Change conference in Quebec City.

    The “expert” was David Barber, an Arctic climatologist at the University of Manitoba where, apparently, he still is as an Associate Dean of Research, … and so on.

    I wonder if anyone at that gathering questioned his views.
    It would be fun to check that out, and then contact all those in attendence for comments.
    It has been common in science not to disagree with the big guns, least you stay a little one.
    Anyway, as Feynman said: If observations do not agree with your theory, your theory is wrong.
    What could be clearer?

      That would be David “Rotten Sea Ice” Barber.

      “If observations do not agree with your theory, your theory is wrong.”
      That is a passive statement.
      Why not do as Mann-change method.
      Or as we have seen(We have to get rid of..)-change the observations.
      And then state “Science is settled!”

      It is amazing there is no consequences for these folks. I remember when Pons & Fleischman announced bench-top cold fusion in the late 1980s. When it could not be reproduced by others, their careers were over.

      Now when Laure Resplandy etal. from Princeton University and the Scripps Institution of Oceanography publish a paper in Nature that is blasted all over the globe by the MSM, that is mathematically incorrect, there are no consequences.

      What is funny is that had Willie Soon used the same basic statistics to determine that there was 60% less warming and tried to publish in the same journal the error would have been spotted within an hour.

      LESSON: As long as your paper finishes with the politically correct conclusion, you can publish whatever you like in Nature, sight unseen. Thus careers in Climate Science are made.

        There are no consequences for politicians,(or Clintons and Bushs+baby messiah would have been killed long time ago)
        therefore one can not expect consequences in political science.
        As soon as one leaves the safe space of political science he has to face consequences one has to face in the real world
        for incompetence,lies,betrayals as this is common sense and natural law.

        Real Science and Political Science are to each other as Donald Trump and Barack Obama.
        One will be examined in a forensic way and be attacked
        the other can do whatever it wants and will always be worshipped.

        That’s the difference of common sense and communistic sense
        and the difference between integrity and loyalty.
        And the more loyalty in science the less quality there is.
        As universities are spitting out huge numbers of comrades with a mission who already know that all their research is dedicated to prove global warming the quality goes to zero.

      • MGJ says:

        A common ruse in medical papers is to append phrases like ‘counter-intuitive’ and ‘paradoxical’, adjacent to any patently true but politically dangerous statements which may endanger future funding.

        Cowardly but effective, it seems.

    A quick check with Google and you find that Dr. David Barber is still with us. And so it is apparent that he failed the first tenet of climate science:

    1. Never make a prediction based on a timeline that expires before you do.

    • arn says:

      Well-climate science has at least improved on this subject.

      Nowadays they barely dare to make “short” term predictions
      but generally hide behind “in 30+++year the end is near” predictions
      as they moved so many goalposts so many times that their entire fundament is now full of holes as swiss cheese
      and with every new hole they dig to move their goalpost to they dig a hole for themselves.

    There was a good article in Breitbart about these false predictions yesterday:

    Only Anti-Science Suckers Believe Climate Change Hysteria

    Here is a very simple question for all of you upset over the fact that I do not believe in Climate Change: How many scientific doomsday prophecies do I have to see debunked before I am allowed to be skeptical of the next one?
    How many?

    Give me a number.

    How many?

    Give me a number.

    How about if I give you a number: Thirteen. Thirteen, y’all.

    I am on the dark side of 52 now, which is not young, but it also isn’t old. And yet, I have lived to see so many media and scientifically-driven end-of-the-world predictions collapse under the weight of reality, I have nearly lost count.

    This is how old I am. … Old enough to remember being told that by now:

    Griff will shortly drop in here to deplore the disgrace to science exemplified by the likes of alleged “climate scientists” Barber and Wadhams. And pigs may fly.
