“Arctic Not Freezing”

During October, a well known climate researcher just across the border in Colorado sounded the alarm that the Arctic wasn’t freezing this winter. The press got hysterical.

Arctic sea ice extent is highest for the date in the last five years and just below the 1981-2010 two standard deviation range.

A few months ago, Antarctic sea ice extent was near a record high.

    That’s the problem with global warming. You never know what’s going to happen, you just know it’s going to be bad.

    The well known climate researcher needs to grab his kayak and paddle to the north pole. Make history.

    The press will just become excessively more hysterical now that they won’t have Trump to kick around anymore.

    Keep up the good work!

    Tell a lie often enough and loud enough, and people will end up believing it. Propaganda 101.

    It would be nice to think that the researcher, Labe, was just screwing with the idiots in the media. You know, maybe he was drinking beer with his buddies and bet them he could get his name in several major newspapers around the world in 1 week. They said, “no way” and he said, “no problem. I’ll just tell them the Arctic isn’t freezing and they’ll go wild. None of them will check it and 99% of their readers won’t check it either.”

    Postdocs usually are on “soft” money. So keeping the grant requires “whatever it takes”. CU and CSU were good universities in the 70s. Not so much now.

    Minor correction but it makes present ice extent even less of an issue.
    “1981-2010 two standard deviation range”
    Should be 1981-2000 two standard deviation range.

      That is an interesting point. Note that the reference range of 20 years is used, and not a climatological 30 years, even though 2 more decades of data are available.

  9. Just wondering when they’re gonna take Tony down on his own website for daring to challenge the tyranny of the warmists.

    this is kinda cute:


    perhaps our more talented readers might do a more rofessional version.
