    Which flies in the face of their statement that 2019 was the warmest year ever. That statement is complete BS.

    calling on reggie….

      Reggie is still highly butt hurt, and he won’t dare show his lying face around here anymore. The little fella was taught a lesson by the adults in the room…

      Thanks to the Chico Police Department and officer Jim Parrott, I learned today that we were able to shut down a person living in Windsor Ontario who has been serially harassing me and threatening me and my family for over a year. He was doing this because of my views on “climate change” and my website:

      Officer Parrott reached out to the Windsor Police Department (Constable Strong in the WPD Major Crimes Unit) and provided him all the research I’d gathered (including setting up an Internet “honeypot” to trap him) and today we get word back that the suspect has been identified, and has had police officers show up at his front door.

      This particularly malicious troll is one of the “Arctic sea ice zealots” that inhabit Jim Hunt’s “Great White Con” website on sea ice. Both Jim and this troll were long ago banned from WUWT for serially bad behavior breaking our commenting policy multiple times, but this one troll couldn’t let it go. He escalated, and continued to do so…

      Thanks to the work of the Windsor Police Department and the Chico Police Department, this malicious Internet troll won’t be bothering me again.

      Thanks also to a number of bloggers who helped me zoom in on this guy by sharing information. Thanks also to “Poptech” whose research was very helpful. Great thanks to our own “Charles the Moderator” who helped me stay calm and focused on the “long game” rather than let this toad get under my skin.

      Its quite a feeling of satisfaction to [get some action on] this case, especially since this dirtbag had assumed multiple identities, used fake emails, and other techniques to hide his identity. Much like some of the other trolls we deal with here daily, but this one stepped over the line, time and time again…

      So, we nailed him. Despite his cowardice and shapeshifting, we prevailed, and we used his own stupidity against him to trap him in the “honeypot” so a positive ID could be made.

      I won’t share the technique I devised, but it’s safe to say he had no idea what hit him when officers showed up at his door in Windsor. While it is very very tempting to share the file I have on him thanks to the police, I’ve learned long ago that “discretion is the greater part of valor“. I’ll just keep it handy, just in case I need to exercise my rights further.

        Thanks for the heads up Gator.

        I had no idea that “Snow White” was quite so famous!

      • Gator says:

        The word is “infamous” Genocide Jim, but your site is not even that, it is a ghost town. And of course you are fine with aberrant and immoral behavior. After all, you hate poor brown people, and you are proud of that fact.

  3. S. K. Dodsland says:

    A recent article on Co2 Coalition reveal a HADCRUT 4 Global Surface Anomaly Graph that indicated warming trend from 1980 to the present.

    Is this credible in your opinion?

  4. Sonny Thorgren says:

    I would very much like someone to start a group on facebook named “Real science”. To become a member you would have to answer “No” to the question: “Is science settled?”

  5. Jim Hunt says:

    Arctic sea ice extent is hardly “normal” Tony, whatever that means in this context.

    FYI here’s the high resolution University of Hamburg edition:

  6. gregole says:

    2020 and there’s plenty of ice at the poles. What about all that MannMade CO2 trapping heat? You’d think by now the dreaded “Greenhouse Effect” would have kicked in by now…

    I mean, isn’t is suppose to be getting hotter?

  7. Joe in Wyo says:

    Anybody else following the Polarstern ship up by the North Pole?
    They are in a real pickle this year with all the ice.
    Even the icebreaker enroute to bring supplies and a fresh crew is having difficulty getting thru the ice. I thought the idea of purposefully trapping a ship in the Arctic for the Winter seemed risky but I bet they thought they’d be in ice free water soon.
    Instead they are still hovering near the North Pole.

      Yes, they’re drifting fairly fast towards the Nares, it looks like they might exit earlier than they expected. Their plan was to take 390 days.

  8. DCA says:

    The US Coast Guard sends an icebreaker to Antarctica every year to break out the channel for the resupply of the NSF research station at McMurdo. It is known as Operation Deepfreeze. The extent of fast ice to break varies from year to year. In January of 1980, the USCGC Polar Sea and USCGC Northwind had about 12 miles of ice to break out. This year, the USCGC Polar Star had 23 miles to break out.

    Two isolated data points like this are, of course, not a trend; nor are they indicative of anything other than business as usual.

  9. Rhys Read says:

    I saw a posting on the Wall street journal that 20% of global sea ice melted in the past 9 days. How do you respond to something like that?

    • DCA says:


      That is laughable at its face. Extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof.

      If you believe such a claim, I recommend you sell all of your worldly possessions and live it up – “for tomorrow we die.” After all, if 20% disappears in 9 days, what’s to stop the remaining 80% from disappearing in the next 36 days?

      If, however, you want to be a little more circumspect about such claims, you will just be another ignorant climate denier.

      Let us know what you choose.

    • Gator says:

      With laughter.

    • Steven Fraser says:

      You ask 2 questions: using what metric, and reported by whom?

      It is not likely to be true, but this will get you in the conversation without having to laugh.

    • Disillusioned says:

      1.) The only sea ice that is melting right now is in the southern hemisphere; it is summer down there and it is normal for sea ice to melt in summer (which being sea ice – does not raise sea levels one iota). We would need only be concerned if sea ice were not melting during summer, as it always does.

      2.) NO sea ice is melted during the last 9 days in the northern hemisphere.

      3.) Call them what they are – an alarmist.
