No Change In Arctic Ice Extent Over The Past Week

This may turn out to be the shortest melt season on record.

    Like flies on shit the Grifftard will be buzzing around this latest bait set by Tony. Keep up the awesome work Tony!!

    The alarmists remind me of my nephew on a Christmas Eve many years ago. He was desperately trying to get everyone to go to bed so that Santa would not skip his home. Exasperated, he finally ran down the stairs and loudly announced to everyone present that he heard bells!

    Alarmists are children trying to get what they want. They will stamp their feet, scream, cry, pout, throw tantrums, and generally make a nuisance of themselves in hopes of getting their way.

      Its fun to watch and encourage their tantrums. :-)

      To give them a chance to prove just how wilfully ignorant, brain-hosed, and lacking in any sort of rational science or thought they are.

      Give them the rope, they will tie themselves in ever tighter knots. ;-)

      They still sacrifice children, by the thousands daily.

      These were the bad projects. As you might see the bottom of the list was climate change. This offends a lot of people, and that’s probably one of the things where people will say I shouldn’t come back, either. And I’d like to talk about that, because that’s really curious. Why is it it came up? And I’ll actually also try to get back to this because it’s probably one of the things that we’ll disagree with on the list that you wrote down.

      The reason why they came up with saying that Kyoto — or doing something more than Kyoto — is a bad deal is simply because it’s very inefficient. It’s not saying that global warming is not happening. It’s not saying that it’s not a big problem. But it’s saying that what we can do about it is very little, at a very high cost. What they basically show us, the average of all macroeconomic models, is that Kyoto, if everyone agreed, would cost about 150 billion dollars a year. That’s a substantial amount of money. That’s two to three times the global development aid that we give the Third World every year. Yet it would do very little good. All models show it will postpone warming for about six years in 2100. So the guy in Bangladesh who gets a flood in 2100 can wait until 2106. Which is a little good, but not very much good. So the idea here really is to say, well, we’ve spent a lot of money doing a little good.

      And just to give you a sense of reference, the U.N. actually estimate that for half that amount, for about 75 billion dollars a year, we could solve all major basic problems in the world. We could give clean drinking water, sanitation, basic healthcare and education to every single human being on the planet. So we have to ask ourselves, do we want to spend twice the amount on doing very little good? Or half the amount on doing an amazing amount of good? And that is really why it becomes a bad project. It’s not to say that if we had all the money in the world, we wouldn’t want to do it. But it’s to say, when we don’t, it’s just simply not our first priority.

      Apparently alarmists believe that sacrificing humans, starving them to death, is the best way to deal with climate change. Some things never change.

      • GW Smith says:

        The idealists always want to fix all the problems in the world in one big swoop, but they ignore the reality of sovereign nations. For example, they want to spend money to give everyone in the world clean water, but the leaders of those countries say, “Give us the money and we will fix it ourselves.” Yet they don’t. They pocket the money or else spend it incompetently. This is where the fascism of the left comes in, they want to force these countries to into being saved. And that’s where it dies and where the money goes down the drain. They ignore reality.

        • Gator says:

          Worse. They want to waste the world’s treasure on a nonexistent problem in pursuit of an agenda, while millions needlessly starve.

          It is one thing to fail at genuinely trying to help someone, and it another thing entirely when we ignore actual existential threats in favor of our political agendas.

    Even NSIDC has the Arctic levelled out for the last week or so.

    If it bottoms out now, and starts to re-freeze, the squeals from the likes of the little-andy and the griffturd will be hilarious. !

  4. Cam says:

    What a difference 2 weeks can make. On 15 Aug, NSIDC penned this:

    Dead Heat
    At mid-month, Arctic sea ice extent is tracking close to 2012, the year with the lowest minimum in the satellite record.

    Two weeks later and the 2019 extent is 900,000 sq km higher than 2012 and also higher than 2016.

    • Nicholas McGinley says:

      And there is far more thick multiyear ice than was the case in those years.
      The huge amount of open water is releasing an unknowable amount of heat to the atmosphere where it is quickly lost to space In a little over three weeks the Sun will set at the North Pole and not rise again for six months, and everywhere else the angle is very low by now as the Sun is getting ready to cross the Equator.
      La Nina conditions are setting up across the tropical Pacific as the ENSO index has now gone negative.
      The disc of the Sun is blank. Solar activity is very low.
      The sunspot number for July was 1.6. I am not sure if there has been a single sunspot in August.
      PMOD fell off a cliff a few months back and is the lowest ever measured level of TSI.

      And the most reliable index of cooling, the alarmist insanity index, is at record stupid.
