Current Ice Conditions and Forecasts – Weather and Meteorology – Environment Canada showing the very slow ice melt this spring, Hudson Bay, the key area showing Ice Age conditions, is still virtually totally frozen and ice that gripped the entire west coast of Greenland has only lost its grip on the southern half of the continent. Finally, the Great Lakes have melted thanks to a week of very warm weather but a cold front is coming and there are blizzards across the Great Plains. Meanwhile, the liberal media is raising yet another global warming storm blaming the deaths of two rather silly ‘scientists’ who went to Greenland to study how it is ‘melting’ have died and naturally, their foolish deaths are blamed on ‘global warming’ not the extreme cold of the last two winters.
Inspirational climate researchers feared dead on Arctic expedition | Environment | The Guardian is 100% global warming all the time no matter how cold it gets. Naturally, the editors there are howling with rage that these two guys died.
When news came through last week that Marc and Philip were missing in the Arctic, presumed drowned during an expedition to collect data on the state of the ice, their former students started reaching out to each other. We have spent the last few days exchanging messages of grief and shock.
Marc was an experienced Polar explorer, with an unwavering commitment to tackling climate change. His expertise was in gathering ice and snow samples that could be used to validate existing data, such as that gathered by ESA’s CryoSat.
Where the hell did they DROWN????
So, in a very tiny sliver of ‘melt’, these two goofballs managed to drown? Amazing! The presumption that they drowned is peculiar. The fact that the warmists all gripped this explanation right off the bat shows us how ‘scientific’ they all are. Not even slightly. Zero proof is given for drowning. Perhaps they were eaten by polar bears? Polar bears are hungry due to the thick ice which means no seals.
Greenland is not melting much these days. Neither is Antarctica. The sun has bathed the earth with more solar radiation in the last week. SpaceWeather.com shows significant levels of sun spot activity this week.
The weeping and wailing over the news that two foolish young men managed to somehow drown in Greenland when 99.9% of the continent is frozen solid has liberals crying in their cups all across the internet: Climate change’s tragic toll: The Arctic, two missing researchers & unsettling questions about a warming planet – Salon.com
The purpose of Cornelissen and de Roo’s expedition was to measure the quality and thickness of the sea ice across 400 kilometers of this area, in order to help the WWF with its work. Much of the data they collected has yet to be recovered for analysis, said Marielle Feenstra, a spokesperson for ColdFacts. But their deaths seem to suggest that even this last stronghold in the Arctic is losing its stability…
They served a role, concurred Divoky, that not everyone can appreciate. He was touched, he told Salon, to read so many comments beneath news stories from people who remembered Cornelissen and de Roo, but dismayed to see several asking, “Well, what were they doing up there, anyway?”
“He was doing it to let people know that the Arctic was changing,” Divoky said of Cornelissen. “He was going out to try and find that out. If he had just stayed home, who else would be going out there and getting this information and bringing it back to people who would never go out on the ice?”
The utter insanity with which liberals have clutched the global warming story is killing the left across the entire planet earth. Yes, some places where global warming is seldom mentioned, leftists can cling to some political popularity based on demands for more social services. But in first world countries where global warmist demands that we pay a very high price for heating our homes in winter and where demands we live miserable lives in order to save polar bears is driving voters aways from liberal politicians…this lunacy is very destructive to the left.
Yes, the Pope in his immense palace and burning massive amounts of CO2 traveling and living at home, has embraced the global warming ideology but this simply reveals it as a religious fanatic issue similar to ISIS not rational science. The Pope’s meeting of leftists left out any scientists who were more than happy to explain how reality works and that we are in grave danger of sliding rapidly into another Ice Age.
FJORDS could help solve global warming as they trap huge quantities of carbon is a typical headline pushed by global warmists. Fjords happen to be geological landscape effects caused by gigantic glaciers during repeated Ice Ages. All this fretting and worrying about CO2 has become astonishing since scientists know that CO2 levels rise and fall a great deal over time, but the general geological trend is towards less CO2 over time, not more. Even with the burning of fossil fuels adding somewhat to the total, the levels are far below levels in previous earth cycles.
Climate Changes Affect Greenland First, Antarctica in 200 Years : Environment : Nature World News tells a truthful story only to slide into the usual propaganda howling about how we will all roast to death:
During the last ice age, Greenland experienced abrupt changes in mean annual temperature, each which occurred within several decades. These so-called “Dansgaard-Oeschger events” took place every few thousand years. Meanwhile, Antarctica’s climate at the time looked very different. In fact, it was the exact opposite, with the White Continent cooling when Greenland was warm, and vice versa.
In the study, a team of researchers from Oregon State University (OSU) discovered that the abrupt climate changes show up first in Greenland, with the response to the Antarctic climate delayed by about 200 years. The researchers documented 18 abrupt climate events in all during the past 68,000 years…
However, the researchers behind this latest study note that past episodes of climate change differ from what is happening today. The abrupt events of the ice age were regional in scope – and likely tied to large-scale changes in ocean circulation. Warming today is global and could be primarily driven by human carbon dioxide emissions. Even so, by better understanding the factors that are involved in past climate changes scientists may be able to apply their knowledge to the future.
Dansgaard–Oeschger events happen roughly every 1,500 years. These are SUPER COLD events! The article here doesn’t mention that terrifying detail. This is deliberate. In order to float the global warming navy, the reporters and fake scientists don’t tell people important information. When I read this article, I knew exactly what the Dansgaard-Oeschger events were: these nearly killed off most humans! We all evolved from the genetic bottleneck caused by severe, sudden FREEZES of these Ice Age events which happen DURING the Ice Ages!
Polar bears barely survived the sea ice habitat changes of the last Ice Age, evidence suggests | polarbearscience: yes, our buddies the polar bears nearly died during Dansgaard-Oeschger events, too. They evolved in Ireland and Scotland where these bears were caught up in sudden glaciation events and there is a definite recent genetic bottleneck from the last Ice Age showing that they nearly perished back then.
The deaths of many of the European and North American Ice Age animals was mainly due to humans coming suddenly out of Africa where the animals there were used to humanoid hunters for a million years, but the European animals didn’t know about these dangerous ape creatures and were hunted pretty ruthlessly and when the Ice Age sheets which didn’t cover much of Siberia or Alaska dropped the ocean levels a great deal, these hunting ape creatures poured into the Americas and proceeded to hammer the larger, slower moving Ice Age animals there. Somehow the buffalo survived and thrived as the ice sheets melted.
Record snowfall in Colorado today as global warming roasts Colorado pot smokers.
Newsweek Disgracefully Links the Mt Everest Tragedy to Rising CO2 which is insane because the avalanche was due to unusually high levels of ice and snow on the mountain’s flanks due to a very cold, snowy winter in Asia. Normally, at the base camp level where the climbers died, has little to no snow or ice at this time of year. But this year, the entire landscape still was buried in ice.
Now on to one of this week’s NYT headlines that reveals the stupidity of the global warmists screaming that everyone should be scared of warm, dry weather: Los Angeles and Its Booming Creative Class Lures New Yorkers – NYTimes.com
Chased out by rising rents, punishing winters and general malaise, New Yorkers head west to the city they once poked fun at…It started with Instagram. Or maybe it ended with Instagram. Last fall, Christina Turner, a fashion stylist in Brooklyn, was dreading another New York winter in her cramped, lightless Greenpoint, Brooklyn, apartment while gazing longingly at the succulent gardens and festive backyard dinner parties posted on social media by her friends in Los Angeles.
The grass IS greener in Hollywood: Aerial photos expose how stars like Kim, JLo and Streisand are wasting water to keep their gardens lush despite state’s worst drought in history! HAHAHA. The ‘succulent gardens’ are the super rich/liberal enclave clan! And note that the global warmist howlers at the New York Times talks about how ‘gray skies’ and ‘ice’ are driving the creative types out of New York City and to this fun in the SUN state that supposedly is falling apart and everyone is roasting to death and it is the center of the universe which proves that ice has to be melting in Greenland!
NONE of these clowns are moving to Greenland. Except for the two poor souls who thought it was melting while it was getting colder. They are dead whereas the liberals screaming about roasting to death are nice and toasty warm in Hollywood, the absolute center of the universe.
