Near Record Fraudulent Arctic Reporting

The Weather Channel claims the Arctic was near record warm in 2019.

The Danish Meteorological Institute shows that winter temperatures near the North Pole were 5-10C cooler than 2016, and that summer temperatures were below the 1968-2002 mean.

Temperatures are extremely cold in the Bering Sea and the wind is blowing out of the North. This will bring the ice edge near or past the median in the next few days.

    I’m nauseous from seeing the blatant lies put forward by the media operatives.
    They have a well greased and financed machine.
    Keep up the good work mr.Heller.
    For my children s sake.
    Thank you

  2. Stewart Pid says:

    Re Alaska …. I think it was 3 days ago that Alaska caught my eye and I looked in detail and there were -40s everywhere and one -47 C. But the alarmist chicken littles will never report record cold temperatures.
    The swine are playing the game well and have all the low IQ types that were too dumb to take any science or math courses … even at a high school level …. totally sucked in and believing the world is ending in ten years unless we give them all our money.

  3. Patrick says:

    Why doesn’t this message make it to POTUS or at least whoever is running NASA and NOAA? They’ve been making this a political issue since James Hansen testified in 1988. Time to make this front-page news!!! Don’t you think?

  4. John F. Hultquist says:

    Peter Wadhams (academic) has been feeding media (Seth Borenstein and others) the disappearing ice theme for many years.
    When he (Wadhams) realized the Arctic ice wasn’t going to get to “ice free”, he changed the definition to less than 1 million square kilometers. That’s not happening either, so they just make up stuff.
    He received awards for his work in 1977, 1987, and 1990 ( Wikipedia) and since then seems to enjoy the warmth and glow of the television lights to the cold of the Arctic. He will soon be 72.
    Peter will likely disappear before the ice on the Arctic Ocean.

    The media types will have to find another oracle.

    • Phil. says:

      I wasn’t aware that Wadhams was responsible for the definition of ice-free, I thought that was IPCC WG1.

      • rah says:

        Waldhams made his own definition here: https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2016/aug/21/arctic-will-be-ice-free-in-summer-next-year
        ” Next year or the year after that, I think it will be free of ice in summer and by that I mean the central Arctic will be ice-free. You will be able to cross over the north pole by ship. There will still be about a million square kilometres of ice in the Arctic in summer but it will be packed into various nooks and crannies along the Northwest Passage and along bits of the Canadian coastline. Ice-free means the central basin of the Arctic will be ice-free and I think that that is going to happen in summer 2017 or 2018.”

        Since then we skeptics have sometimes expressed the amount of sea ice in the Arctic at a given time in “Waldhams”

  5. Johansen says:

    O..M..G.. Alaska is melting, we need to stop what we’re doing and immediately overthrow all popularly elected governments and bring back Kings, Kaisers, Czars, and ambitious Popes immediately, life was so much better back then for women and minorities and little autistic girls

  6. G W Smith says:

    Keep it up, Tony, we need you! These liars don’t give a damn about reality; only their grant money! Their lemmings will swallow all of it, and that’s all they care about. What a crazy world!

    I didn’t go into the comments though. I just posted Tonys story.

    • Archie says:

      I did scan the comments and we are in trouble. 99% were 100% sure the rest of us are complete idiots. Whenever I get a bit turned around on the “evidence,” I always go back to the satellite vs model graphs. It’s a shame that critical thought apparently isn’t taught or teachable.

      • T. Erickson says:

        Scott Adams has been doing a thing on Twitter to guess someones profession. I bet most commenting are “concerned” artists and actors.

        • R. Hall says:

          Yes! Most are not scientifically adept at seeing into the falsely presented evidence. What bugs me most is that not one of the so-called believers in pseudo-crap ever question why so many predictions have come and gone without happening as predicted.

    IT’S JUST A B—-Y BIG ICE CUBE. DUH!

  9. rah says:

    After a busy mid day getting prepared for vacation, getting oil changed in the vehicle, getting it cleaned inside and out, getting luggage down from the attic, arranging for a small U-Haul trailer, and checking that my ball hitch will fit and that ensuring the vehicle had the wiring, I ate and laid back in the easy chair to watch some TV. Fell asleep watching some show about underground spaces.

    Woke up to a World Wildlife Fund commercial featuring Polar Bears and the typically solemn and pleading female voice telling me they needed our help and I could help save those poor cute Polar Bears if only I would send $8.00 per month to the WWF. What a waking nightmare!

  10. Fairthorpe says:

    The arctic ice is melting articles are prolific and relentless. It’s almost a hopeless battle for Tony.

    Today’s Chicago Tribune editorial is titled, “ As polar ice melts, Russia and China probe”.

    https://digitaledition.chicagotribune.com/html5/mobile/production/default.aspx?edid=e2b2a14b-9da9-4452-a55d-5f55572010f6

    On the positive side, maybe this will encourage more global warming zealots to charter ice breaker trips to the arctic, and we’ll get a laugh when they get stuck up there in the ice free arctic.

    Good work Tony… You might be interested by this article:

    Examination of space-based bulk atmospheric temperatures used in climate research
    John R. Christy,Roy W. Spencer,William D. Braswell &Robert Junod
    Pages 3580-3607 | Received 05 Jun 2017, Accepted 06 Feb 2018, Published online: 08 Mar 2018

    “The rate of observed warming since 1979 for the tropical atmospheric TMT layer, which we calculate also as +0.10 ± 0.03°C decade−1, is significantly less than the average of that generated by the IPCC AR5 climate model simulations. Because the model trends are on average highly significantly more positive and with a pattern in which their warmest feature appears in the latent-heat release region of the atmosphere, we would hypothesize that a misrepresentation of the basic model physics of the tropical hydrologic cycle (i.e. water vapour, precipitation physics and cloud feedbacks) is a likely candidate.”

  12. Bill says:

    If I’m reading your top graph from the DMA correctly, it actually has been warmer at the North Pole during the winter months from 2016 to 2019 than the average from 1968-2002. However, the difference between a winter temperature of 255K and 245K is the difference between about 0 degrees F and -20 degrees F: still frozen and way below the +28 degrees F needed to freeze sea water. If anything, it has been a bit colder during the summer, just above freezing.

    So, although it is fair to say that the arctic around the North Pole is warmer during the winter months, it doesn’t really matter as far as ice extent is concerned. This is borne out by the MAISE charts that show a regular oscillation in sea ice extent. There hasn’t been a real pattern in sea ice volume estimates (according to the DMI), but that doesn’t really matter either, to polar bears or the Earth’s albedo.

    Since we really don’t have much in the way of historical records (satellite records only go back to about 1970), it’s impossible to say much about arctic sea ice. Does it mostly melt sometimes? Probably, based on historical accounts. Do changes in arctic sea ice volume or extent match up with the clear increase in atmospheric CO2? No.

    I’m really tired of being told scary stories by the news media.

  13. Eric Hatfield says:

    If memory serves Tony has presented videos showing what the sea ice coverage was going back to near the beginning of the 20th century by putting together a couple of other charts. Naturally those weren’t satellite based, but I would assume (I know what happens when you assume) the powers that be would certainly want a good handle on where the ice was at the time.

    Anyway the chart he presented showed the sea ice was less during the 1920s-1940s than present or before, grew to the 1970s, peaked in 1979 and declined some into the early part of this century before holding fairly steady over the last decade or so.

    I hope Tony reads this. I would ***highly*** recommend he create a reference section on his website and put a copy of the graphs (with the source) he uses in his videos there. I don’t see one. That way it would be easy to refer to them instead of trying to search for the right video.

  14. thxzetec says:

    The graph shows arctic temps similar in the summer (likely due to phase change at 273K) but sig warmer in the winter. Regarding that comment that anything below freezing is equivalent, I disagree . . . . the colder the faster ice forms (larger delta temperature, more heat transfer, faster ice formation).

    Arctic is only one region in the world, and plot only shows two specific years (2016 and 2019). That said arctic does look sig warmer on average . . . maybe I am missing something.
