Antarctic ice unchanged

“Has global warming caused ice at the South Pole to disappear? Some believe so. But a study of the journals of great polar explorers from over 100 years ago like Ernest Shackleton and Robert Falcon Scott, indicate Antarctic sea ice has barely changed from where it was a century ago. According to the UK Telegraph, there was concern that man-made climate change had caused significant decline of South Pole ice since the 1950s. But new analysis reveals that conditions now are virtually identical to when the famous Terra Nova and Endurance expedition sailed in the early 1900s, indicating any temporary decline was simply part of a natural cycle.”

  • Folks will get a chuckle out of this article. March 03, 2017 Leonardo DiCaprio is a climate change fraud, just flew a woman 7,500 miles to shape his eyebrows

    At the U.N. awards ceremony last year, DiCaprio used part of his speech to talk about climate change, as he’s done several times prior. “There are a few very prominent people that still deny the overwhelming conclusions of the world’s scientists that climate change is largely human-caused and needs immediate urgent attention,” he declared.

    How disingenuous of Rothbard and CFACT to contribute to the misleading coverage of polar scientist Dr. Johnathon Day’s research. Here Day himself responds to those –including the UK Telegraph — who misrepresent his findings and erroneously cast doubt on the link between greenhouse gases and global mean temperature:

      So explain how it works.

        Brin: I’ve mentioned previously that I’m not doing your homework anymore. I’ve suggested that you spend some time in the library or visit your local post-secondary institution. For example, Cardiff University’s Tyndall°Centre for Climate Change Research does some excellent research on climate change as well as on public attitudes. Go make a visit and then tell us what you’ve learned.

        Dont you know? Yet? Golly!
        Anyhow, thats an odd reply to
        the information given to ya.
        How come it isnt along the lines of ” jeez eh, so Rothbard
        got Days work somewhat wrong. Why? Does Rothbard have cognition issues? ”
        or perhaps
        ” As im sure Rothbard is a writer of integrity, a clarification would surely be coming soon from him on this issue. ”

        Or somesuch.
        Not just change the subject.

    That’s weird – Antarctic land and sea ice currently decreasing & not unchanged. Says science, not some shill.

    And I do enjoy the ignorant confusion of sea ice and the ice sheet at the S Pole – a nice comedic touch.

    Best,

    Yes it’s dead, but the goal posts are shifted to pollution so no one needs to explain exactly how c02 causes warming. The taxation scam is still persued with vigour.

  • Nov 30, 2015 Won’t Someone Think of the Polar Bears?!?

    Those cute, furry little Global Warming icons are in danger according to the bought-and-paid-for campaigners in the global warming alarmist industry. The truth, however, is (as always) the polar opposite of what the alarmists want you to believe. Join James for today’s Thought for the Day as he breaks down the lies and misinformation about polar bear populations and how these lies have been used to sell the climate change hype.
