Global warming computer models are proven wrong as Antarctic sea ice hits new record high with 2.1million square miles more than is usual for time of year.
Predictably, some scientists have suggested the Antarctic ice increase may itself be caused by global warming. But Professor Judith Curry, head of climate science at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, said the arguments were not convincing.
Climatologists base their doom-laden predictions of the Earth’s climate on computer simulations.
But these have long been the subject of ridicule because of their stunning failure to predict the pause in warming – nearly 18 years long on some measures – since the turn of the last century.
It’s the same with sea ice. We hear a great deal about the decline in Arctic sea ice, in line with or even ahead of predictions.
But why are environmentalists and scientists so much less keen to discuss the long-term increase in the southern hemisphere?
It’s politics, not science, driving the climate change mania.
Across the globe, there are about one million square kilometres more sea ice than 35 years ago, which is when satellite measurements began.
It’s fair to say that this has been something of an embarrassment for climate modellers. But it doesn’t stop there.
In recent days a new scandal over the integrity of temperature data has emerged, this time in America, where it has been revealed as much as 40 per cent of temperature data there are not real thermometer readings.
July 2 commemorates the supposed UFO crash in Roswell on July 2, 1947.
Some celebrate UFO day on June 24 which is the date that aviator Kenneth Arnold reported what is said to be the first unidentified flying object sighting in the United States. He reported several disk shaped objects flying at incredible speed. Somehow the description changed from flying discs to flying saucers.
The World UFO Day website says the whole point of World UFO day is to celebrate the existence of UFO’s and extra terrestrial life.
Having never seen a flying saucer nor met an extra terrestrial being I won’t be celebrating.
Although I have met several people who may have looked and acted like beings from another world, I’m sure they were not extra terrestrial.
Also, I prefer to use the term flying saucer rather than UFO. Calling them flying saucers puts them in a more humorous category in my mind which is how I think of these unidentified things said to be flying about the sky.
Someday I may actually see a flying saucer. Until then I remain a skeptic.
Since I have admitted to being a flying saucer skeptic I may as well also admit to being a Sasquatch (bigfoot, yeti) skeptic. I will remain a bigfoot skeptic until one is found dead or alive.
Technologies designed specifically to track and monitor human beings have been in development for at least two decades.
Revelation 16 - 17
King James version of the Bible
Revelation 16. And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads.
Revelation 17. And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
In the virtual realm, software programs are now capable of watching us in real time, going so far as to make predictions about our future behaviors and sending alerts to the appropriate monitoring station depending on how a computer algorithm flags your activities. That is in and of itself a scary proposition.
What may be even scarier, however, is what’s happening in the physical realm. According to researches working on human-embedded microchips it’s only a matter of time before these systems achieve widespread acceptance.
In the report at the link below Dr. Krauthammer says he is neither a global warming believer nor a global warming denier.
But he does say that sending tons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere cannot be good for humanity.
He also believes that those scientists who pretend to know exactly what this will cause in 20, 30 or 50 years are white-coated propagandists.
"The debate is settled,” asserted propagandist in chief Barack Obama in his latest State of the Union address. “Climate change is a fact.” Really?
There is nothing more anti-scientific than the very idea that science is settled, static, impervious to challenge.
Take a non-climate example. It was long assumed that mammograms help reduce breast cancer deaths. This fact was so settled that ObamaCare requires every insurance plan to offer mammograms (for free, no less) or be subject to termination.
Now we learn from a massive randomized study, where 90,000 women were followed for 25 years, that mammograms may have no effect on breast cancer deaths.
The mammogram example was no more ‘settled’ than the so-called ‘settled science’ of claimate change.
So much for settledness.
And climate is less well understood than breast cancer. If climate science is settled, why do its predictions keep changing?
And how is it that the great physicist Freeman Dyson, who did some climate research in the late 1970s, thinks today’s climate-change Cassandras are hopelessly mistaken?
A report at the link below is titled, Global Warming on Ice.
Very few main stream media reports are willing to admit what the true purpose of the expedition was. You’ve got to dig pretty deep to discover they essentially planned their voyage using the same fraudulent climate projections the global warming zealot’s have been using for decades, and promptly got stuck in Antarctic ice.
You’d need a heart of stone not to laugh at the spectacle of global warming fanatics trapped in the ice on their way to Antarctica, where they planned to make a big deal about the relative shortage of ice. It’s even funnier because the highly sympathetic mainstream media so clearly understands how utterly embarrassing this is.
Two rescue attempts by icebreakers have failed.
The ship will be abandoned and the global warming scientists will be rescued by Helicopter!
