Global Warming - 5
Weather Alarmists Forecasted “Ice-Free” Arctic by 2013; Ice Cover Expands 50%
Everyone who has been following news about “global warming” — now more often referred to as “climate change” owing to public-relations concerns — also know that global temperatures have not risen ''alarmingly" for last 17 years. 2013 marks the 17th year of no warming on the planet.
Almost everything that could go wrong did go wrong for the cause of global warming. 2013 was the best of years for climate sceptics; the worst of years for climate change enthusiasts for whom any change – or absence of change — in the weather served as irrefutable proof of climate change.
The spectacular lack of warming demolished all 73 of the “climate models” used by the United Nations to push its controversial theories.
Self-styled “global-warming” supposed “climate scientists” have egg all over their faces — big time. In 2007, 2008 and 2009, they publicly and very hysterically warned that the North Pole would be “ice-free” by around 2013 because of alleged “man-made global warming.” Citing “climate” experts, the governments hyped the mass hysteria, running a now-embarrassing article under the headline: “Arctic summers ice-free ‘by 2013’.”
German scientists have predicted that based on declining sunspot activity and natural climate oscillation the world will cool over the next century. Temperatures will eventually drop to levels corresponding with the “little ice age” of 1870.
Speaking to an audience in Germany five years ago, Gore alleged that “the entire North Polarized cap will disappear in 5 years.” “Five years,” Gore emphasized again, is “the period of time during which it is now expected to disappear.”
Well, 2013 is almost over, and contrary to the alarmist “predictions” and what critics refer to as “doomsday cult,” the latest satellite data show that Arctic ice cover has actually expanded 50 percent over 2012 levels. In fact, during October, sea-ice levels grew at the fastest pace since records began in 1979.
Experts now predict the expansion to continue in the years to come, leaving global-warming alarmists scrambling fiendishly for explanations to save face — and to save the rapidly melting climate hysteria.
In the Arctic, for example, data collected by Europe's Cryosat spacecraft pointed to about 9,000 cubic kilometres of ice at the end of the 2013 melt season. In 2012, which was admittedly a low year, the total volume was about 6,000 cubic kilometres — some 50 percent less than the 2013 total. (Polar bear populations are thriving, too.)
See the the Sat Images of Ice levels (as discussed which are purported to be decreasing) are shown here for 2013, 6 years ago 2007 and 13 years ago 2000. See the Ice coloured yellow.
Alarmists claims at a UN “climate” summit in Copenhagen.
“Some of the models ... suggest that there is a 75 percent chance that the entire north polar ice cap, during some of the summer months, could be completely ice-free within the next five to seven years,” Gore claimed in 2009, “We will find out.”
Lets see, here is the Sat Image of the Ice Cap end June 2013 !
In fairness, in December of 2007, the BBC highlighted alleged “modelling studies” that supposedly “indicate northern polar waters could be ice-free in summers within just 5-6 years.” Incredibly, some of the supposed “experts” even claimed it could happen before then, citing calculations performed by “super computers” that the BBC noted “has become a standard part of climate science in recent years.” BBC... too joined the band wagon ?
Across the southern hemisphere, the figures from 2012 showed a record high level of sea-ice cover — more than at any point since records began in 1978. This year set another new record, with ice covering more than 19.5 million square kilometres of ocean around Antarctica by September.
Around the world, meanwhile, record low temperatures continue to make a mockery of “global warming” theories. Cairo, Egypt, just saw its first snowfall in more than 100 years. In the United States there have been thousands of new records for cold temperatures and snowfalls just in the month of December.
Vietnam sees snowfall and Cambodia wrapped in a cold wave...See Here
Many experts are now even predicting global cooling.
And last, but not the least, a comment and video from our much respected meteorologist Joe Bastardi....see video here
Surprise! The media still doesn’t want to discuss climate change that much.The media and press are now increasingly failing to inform the general public of these "reverse" changes....And, as expected, the cause of this extreme cold and record snows ?....Global Warming say the "climate scientists" and the GW theory backers !.heat wave and cold wave..both caused by Global Warming. Some “climate scientists” have even started claiming that the freezing temperatures are actually more evidence of “global warming.” ...confusing isnt it ? You are the Best Judge ..??
