Arctic Thaw May Bring Disaster

If the Antarctic ice regions and the major Greenland ice-cap should reduce at the same rate as at present, melting oceanic surfaces would rise to catastrophic proportions, and people living in the lowlands along the shores would be inundated

temperatures in the Arctic had increased by 10 degrees F. since 1900, and “enormous” rise from a scientific standpoint.

Waters in the Spitsbergen area, in the same period, had risen three to five degrees in temperature said Dr. Hans Ahlmann, noted Swedish geophysicist today at the University of California’s Geophysical Institute.

“The Arctic change is so serious that I hope an international agency can speedily be formed to study conditions on a global basis,” he said.

    Climate Science has always just been disaster propaganda and nothing else.

    But these days it is used to make people acceppt a disaster ideology
    they would not accept otherwise.
    It is not about saving people from disaster but bringing it to them.

    Unless one has one’s head in the sand you would think this ongoing alarmism would eventually ring some bells and someone would speak up.
    Thanks again, Tony!

    There may have been a past reference to chicken little, but its relevance to the climate scare is especially telling in this 1937 version:

    In the words of one commentators:

    “. . . if the original story, where the animals all end up mostly dead, seems a bit, well, harsh for a simple freakout over an acorn, or a rose petal, or any other small thing that just happens to fall on the head of a chicken—removing that harshness also removes the impact of the tale’s two main messages: first, not to overreact to small things, or blow them out of proportion, and second, not to believe everything that you’re told. After all, in the revised version, nothing much happens to Chicken Little and her friends, apart from a brief scare, and the chance to meet and chat with an actual king. Arguably, having to reassure them even means that he suffers more than they do, though I suppose it can also be argued that reassuring chickens is sort of his job. In the older version, Chicken Little and her followers face the real danger—and consequences—of their credulity.”

      It’s actually 1943.
      On a personal note, when Disney was doing it again 60 years later, I admit I was suckered due to my prepubescent love for cartoon animals for what turned out to be the low point in their main animation studio’s history. At least Zootopia was much better 10 years later.

    “OMG, it’s worse than we thought, we’re all gonna die from global warming” said nobody in 1948
