“It occurred to me ….” They say, incorrectly, one person cannot change the world. Unfortunately they usually change it for the worse. Al Gore did more to bring melting Arctic ice to global attention and concern than anyone. Polar bears became victims and poster animals for destructive human production of CO2. He’s done more [...]
“It occurred to me ….. ” Global warming is another undelivered government promise. Polar Bears were chosen by Al Gore as the poster animal for global warming. They added emotion and drama to his story about melting arctic ice. This was necessary because most people either had no mental image of the Arctic Ocean or [...]
Recently I identified a counterattack trying to defend the failed anthropogenic global warming (AGW) hypothesis. Claims about Arctic ice melt this summer (2012) are another example. Data and analysis are wrong, but they need to scare a disinterested public. I know about arctic sea ice from flying ice and anti-submarine patrols on Canada’s east coat [...]
Usually, whatever aboriginal or indigenous people say about the environment is sacrosanct to environmentalists and government. However, when they disagree their knowledge is belittled and ignored. It is happening to the Inuit about polar bears. Environmentalists and government claim polar bears are doomed because of global warming. “Most of the world’s polar bears are likely [...]
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) science and its promotion involves selection of only material that supports the hypothesis that human CO2 is causing warming and latterly climate change. It is used in everything from tree ring samples chosen to create the hockey stick, to omission of the Milankovitch Effect, and the role of [...]
It appears there’s a media blitz to recover lost momentum as the public reject claims of global warming.
Many claim sea level is rising because of global warming and point to changes along the Gulf of Mexico coast. Sea level has risen since the end of the last Ice Age (Figure 1), but it has slowed dramatically in the last few hundred years. However, shoreline change is not just a function of water [...]
There are frequent stories of impending doom. If it isn’t new it’s a recycled one, which works because few understood the original story was false. This allows exploiters to take normal events and present them as abnormal. A recent Canadian story identifies a hole in the Arctic ozone. How can this be? Wasn’t the problem [...]
Climate alarmists constantly search for claims of impending disaster. Usually they’re natural events they present as unnatural. Rarely does the actual outcome get published so people can keep track of false speculations. For example, in 2005 a report speculated that a weakening of the Gulf Stream would cause significant cooling in Europe. The story played [...]
Arctic ice pack is melting at approximately 54,000 square kilometers a day as the world warms. Why haven’t we seen this headline? Possibly because when journalists check, it’s the average rate of summer melt as the ice decreases from winter maximum of 14 million square km2 in April toward a minimum of 4.5 million km2 in September. Few people know this much ice melts every summer, but they don’t know a similar amount of ice forms every winter.
