Scientific Integrity Melting Six Times Faster Than The 1990s

The press is full of stories that polar ice is melting six times faster than the 1990s.

There has been no trend in temperatures at the capital of Greenland over the past century.

As is normally the case, climate alarmists cherry-picked the lowest point of the graph to start their trend. It is the only way they can keep their fraud going.

    Data link broken

    And, of course, it should be noted that the long-term average is (wait for it) – below freezing.

    Laws of thermodynamics and physics do not exist within the Arctic Circle, I guess

  3. G W Smith says:

    Whatever the facts, follow the narrative, if you want to stay on the team!

  4. Matthew says:

    And of course, it’s melting twice as fast as everywhere else: 12 times the melting! Why, I expect Greenland will be ice-free in 10 years! /sarcasm

    The alarmist view gets all the press. People believe what they read and what they see and hear on TV.

    It’s an old adage that you fight fire with fire.

    Realists need to get the sensible view into the media.

    That’s the task.

    A common practice that apologists for the climate change scam overlook. Willfully.

    The Svalbard isolation ladies must be peeved, nature’s still not supporting their stunt.

  8. Alessandro Maccari says:

    Not just that, but the ice around Svalbard is nearing the maximum extent ever recorded in the 1981-2010 period. Unfortunately the Norwegian Meteorological website has been down for a day and graphs can’t be extrapolated.
    Scientists are calling this a “brief cool wave”

  9. Bob says:

    Imagine the ‘Trend starts here’ when the WHO draws up final Covid19 graph.
    97% of world experts will agree. Polar bears will be rolling in the snow with laughter.

    • Disillusioned says:

      Yeah, I think it’s a sure bet they will be deceptive with the numbers, somehow.

      The bears? Of course, they don’t give a seal pup’s arse what the WHO and their experts do. ;-P

    And here I was thinking you might be out of a day job given the latest bogeyman appears to be achieving all their goals rapidly… I guess it will take a while for their train to run out of coal

  11. GeologyJim says:

    By the way, whatever has become of the ginormous NSF-funded meet-up in the Arctic? You know, the Russian icebreaker purposefully frozen into an ice field so they can drift around the Arctic conducting “sciencey” projects and some data gathering. Has to be supported by regular shipments on aircraft, gigantic diesel generators, etc. etc. Tag-teams of “climate scientists” and “climate sociologists” and probably a “climate poet” or two ferried up and down the latitudes on 4-6 week rotations

    Similar question – what’s going on in the Antarctic these days, hmmmm?

    If I cared, I might try to look them up, but we’re dealing with shut-downs driven by wretched COVID models down here in the real world

    Nothing but crickets

    • Colorado Wellington says:

      Who has time to worry about the Arctic and the Antarctic, Jim? Don’t we have a climate emergency right back home?

      Larison: Actual crisis

      It occurs to me in the midst of the current public health crisis that Longmont actually has two declared emergencies in effect …

      Dave Larison is a retired NOAA meteorologist who has worked with Longmont weather and climate since 1980.

      As they say, read the whole thing. 😎

    I suppose it’s good news to hear that the bulk of Greenland is still an ice-bound wasteland. Why is that the Warmunists think warming up and thawing out is bad?

    Oh well, perhaps it’s not such good news that Greenland is still an ice-bound wasteland.

  13. John Haller says:

    Well, all that pesky hot air must be coming from somewhere! Got it! All those climate alarmists are talking so much about this, that they are emitting 10 times the carbon dioxide than they did in the 90’s and they are heating up from the friction that their jaws
    produce from flapping so much. Another perfect hypothesis and in this case, proved correct.

  14. doug says:

    What are these alarmists trying to achieve? Is it funding for more research (and funding for their salaries)?

    “Scientific Integrity Melting Six Times Faster …”

    That was yesterday. They found a way to speed it up.

    Environmental Reporters Strategize On Using Coronavirus To Advance Climate Agenda

    With the nation locked down due to the coronavirus outbreak, members of the Society of Environmental Journalists (SEJ) last week compared the dangers of the pandemic with climate change and discussed how to leverage reporting on the public health crisis into advancing environmental policies.

    In a webinar entitled, “Covering a Crisis: Climate, Coronavirus, and Global (In)action),” discussion was moderated by Emily Holden, an environmental reporter for The Guardian and featured Katherine Hayhoe, a professor at Texas Tech University and Denis Hayes, a member of the Earth Day Network. *)

    *) Earth Day founder Ira Einhorn was unable to connect to the webinar and the participants missed his contribution on urban composting.

      Ha, in my county here in South Florida, the local leaders just had a meeting and were lamenting that they cannot implement their tax increase for “environmental” mitigation because everybody is out of work! And that real estate prices are likely to take a serious hit, so their proposed increase in property tax to fund their green dreams is on hold indefinitely.

      So the WuFlu hoax is having a net positive effect in one respect!

  16. Caleb Shaw says:

    I think we need to repeat the historical facts concerning low sea-ice in the past, (as you do so well with your “Arctic sea ice unchanged from sixty years ago” tab at the top of your site), because Alarmists have this desire to “purge” the historical record. Rather than learning from past masters, they see the past as a sort of wickedness, and want to burn the books. Both Stalin and Mao were big on erasing the record, even to the point of “disappearing” people from historical pictures. I suppose they wanted to rip things up and start over from scratch, which is fine if you are talking about a rough draft of your own work, but is evil when you are talking about the lives of other people.

    You might be interested in scanning over my recent post comparing the Russian knowledge of sea-ice through actual experience, with Greenpeace’s ignorant activism. It may contain a few historical images you don’t have yet, for your wonderful collection.

    One area of history I’d like to learn more about are the Russian drifting sea-ice bases of the Cold War. (Top secret at the time.) Of particular interest is Base NP 22, which drifted around for eight and a half years, from September 13, 1972 to April 8, 1981. This base lasted longer than any other base, and also was operational when sea-ice levels peaked in 1979. It would be interesting to learn what the sea-ice and the sea-ice-drift was like, at that time. If you (or your readers) could help me learn more I’d be very grateful.

    Very interesting how the sea-ice has piled up around Svalbard this winter. It’s reversing the headlines you post from 1922, although not as severe as it gets when the AMO is truly cold.

  17. I’m talking ablut downloading movies, not music, in a very number of minutes instead of hour
    like a lot of users of so-called high-speed internet go through now.
    Reality TV has almost bought out America’s television screens and fill the.
    Wireless cable makes use of SHF or Super High
    Frequenccy channels in transmitting which can be done in the
    air and employ any cable wires.
