ARCTIC FAKE NEWS ON STEROIDS : ‘Next Year Or The Year After, The Arctic Will Be Free Of Ice’ (@Guardian 2016)

TWO years ago today, The Guardian proclaimed, under the ‘expert’ tutelage of professional Arctic alarmist ‘Professor’ Peter Wadhams, that ‘Next year or the year after, the Arctic will be free of ice’… 

Peter Wadhams has spent his career in the Arctic, making more than 50 trips there, some in submarines under the polar ice. He is credited with being one of the first scientists to show that the thick icecap that once covered the Arctic ocean was beginning to thin and shrink. He was director of the Scott Polar Institute in Cambridge from 1987 to 1992 and professor of ocean physics at Cambridge since 2001. His book, A Farewell to Ice, tells the story of his unravelling of this alarming trend and describes what the consequences for our planet will be if Arctic ice continues to disappear at its current rate.

You have said on several occasions that summer Arctic sea ice would disappear by the middle of this decade. It hasn’t. Are you being alarmist?
No. There is a clear trend down to zero for summer cover. However, each year chance events can give a boost to ice cover or take some away. The overall trend is a very strong downward one, however. Most people expect this year will see a record low in the Arctic’s summer sea-ice cover. Next year or the year after that, I think it will be free of ice in summer and by that I mean the central Arctic will be ice-free. You will be able to cross over the north pole by ship. There will still be about a million square kilometres of ice in the Arctic in summer but it will be packed into various nooks and crannies along the Northwest Passage and along bits of the Canadian coastline. Ice-free means the central basin of the Arctic will be ice-free and I think that that is going to happen in summer 2017 or 2018.

WADHAMS’ 2016 prediction has been proven “alarmist” by none other than Mother Nature, in the worst possible kind of way…

AT the time of Wadhams’ claim, in August 2016, Arctic sea-ice volume was approximately 5 million square kilometres:

HE claimed in 2016 that by 2017 or 2018 There will still be about a million square kilometres of ice in the Arctic in summer”.

EXACTLY two years later, Arctic sea-ice volume has grown to approximately 7 million square kilometres to date:

WADHAMS’ prediction out by only 6 million square kilometres!

ARCTIC sea-ice volume has grown from 5 million square kilometres in August 2016 to 7 millionsquare kilometres as of 20th August 2018:

MASSIVE growth in both sea-ice volume and thickness despite the howling and screams of Arctic alarmists and record and rising CO2 emissions!

THERE has been a massive expansion in multi-year, thick summer sea-ice over the past decade:

PURPLE (2008) = 0.1 – 1.0 metre thick sea-ice

GREEN (2018) = 2.0 – 3.0 metre thick sea-ice

WADHAMS has about as much credibility as climate charlatan and fellow Arctic alarmist Tim Flannery who also assured us that we will “see an ice-free North Pole in 2018” :

THEY are not alone.

MOST of the fake-news-mainstream-media, grant-driven alarmist climate ‘scientists’ and “97%” of those esteemed ‘scientific’ institutions ALL promised you an “ice-free” Arctic by now, in order to push their fraudulent global warming climate change agenda:

AS of today, the Guardian article is still up on their site.

NO retraction, no correction or no apology for such a gross dud-prediction and subsequent costly alarm incurred.

SO, the question must be asked again – who are the real science and data “deniers”?

AND, what other climate change falsehoods does The Guardian tell you in order to push their fraudulent global warming agenda?

Mad Scientist Wants To Spend £400bn To Refreeze The Arctic

By Paul Homewood – NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT

Feeding time for the fruitloops who read the Guardian!

Physicist Steven Desch has come up with a novel solution to the problems that now beset the Arctic. He and a team of colleagues from Arizona State University want to replenish the region’s shrinking sea ice – by building 10 million wind-powered pumps over the Arctic ice cap. In winter, these would be used to pump water to the surface of the ice where it would freeze, thickening the cap.

The pumps could add an extra metre of sea ice to the Arctic’s current layer, Desch argues. The current cap rarely exceeds 2-3 metres in thickness and is being eroded constantly as the planet succumbs to climate change.

“Thicker ice would mean longer-lasting ice. In turn, that would mean the danger of all sea ice disappearing from the Arctic in summer would be reduced significantly,” Desch told the Observer.

Desch and his team have put forward the scheme in a paper that has just been published in Earth’s Future, the journal of the American Geophysical Union, and have worked out a price tag for the project: $500bn (£400bn).

It is an astonishing sum. However, it is the kind of outlay that may become necessary if we want to halt the calamity that faces the Arctic, says Desch, who, like many other scientists, has become alarmed at temperature change in the region. They say that it is now warming twice as fast as their climate models predicted only a few years ago and argue that the 2015 Paris agreement to limit global warming will be insufficient to prevent the region’s sea ice disappearing completely in summer, possibly by 2030.

“Our only strategy at present seems to be to tell people to stop burning fossil fuels,” says Desch. “It’s a good idea but it is going to need a lot more than that to stop the Arctic’s sea ice from disappearing.”

All of the usual myths are there:

1) Temperatures are now so high at the north pole that scientists are contemplating radical schemes to avoid catastrophe

No they’re not. Temperatures across the Arctic were just as high in the 1930s and 40s:

2) This paucity of sea ice bodes ill for the Arctic’s summer months when cover traditionally drops to its lower annual level, and could plunge to a record minimum this year. Most scientists expect that, at current emission rates, the Arctic will be reliably free of sea ice in summer by 2030

Summer sea ice extent has been stable now since 2006. There is no evidence at all that it will all disappear by 2030.

3)  Last November, when sea ice should have begun thickening and spreading over the Arctic as winter set in, the region warmed up. Temperatures should have plummeted to -25C but reached several degrees above freezing instead. “It’s been about 20C warmer than normal over most of the Arctic Ocean. This is unprecedented,” research professor Jennifer Francis of Rutgers University told the Guardian in November. “These temperatures are literally off the charts for where they should be at this time of year. It is pretty shocking.

There was nothing “unprecedented” about last November’s spike in temperatures, which were in any event still well below freezing, contrary to Francis’ fake claim.

For instance, there were also large warm anomalies during the winter of 1972, when Arctic ice was expanding rapidly:

4)  With less ice to reflect solar radiation back into space, the dark ocean waters of the high latitudes will warm and the Arctic will heat up even further.

While this may be true for a short spell during summer months, for most of the year the opposite is the case. Ice free oceans will lose heat to the atmosphere, and thus into space.

This whole potty scheme is a classic case of what happens when you hand out billions of pounds in grants to research anything to do with climate. But Steven Desch ought to be more careful what he wishes for.

Messing around with natural climate forces might have cataclysmic effects, by creating too much ice. After all, why does he assume that the amount of ice we had in 1979 is “normal” or “desirable”. Countries like Iceland certainly did not think so, as it nearly wrecked their economy.

Before he wastes any more taxpayers’ money, maybe he ought to study Arctic climate history and the role of cycles. I suggest he reads HH Lamb, who had this to say in 1995:

455611-082018

285811-082018

In other words, Arctic climate revolves around an interdecadal cycle, and we are currently in the warm phase, just as we were in earlier decades.

One of the major drivers is that when the Arctic is warmer, it is also wetter. Rivers running south to north in Canada and Siberia drain this extra fresh water into the Arctic Ocean. Fresh water of course freezes more easily, thus eventually leading to increasing sea ice, and reversing the warm part of the cycle.

It has happened many times in the past, and will happen again in the next few years. If mad scientists like Desch get their way, we may end up with more ice than we know what to do with.

Is the World Starting to Repeat 1970’s Style Winters & Summers?

After earliest ever snow recorded in Japan, now reports of Aug 12 snows in Georgia along the Black Sea and near freezing temperatures in Alaska with Arctic temperatures below freezing in the same areas. Are we getting ready to repeat 1970’s style winters where Buffalo was buried and Iran got 24 feet of snow in one storm. It looks as if the sunspot count reflects this as we descend deeper into the grans solar minimum.

ARCTIC “Death Spiral” : Fifteen Years In Fifteen Seconds

ARCTIC "Death Spiral" CLIAMTISM.png

AUGUST is peak melt season for Arctic sea-ice. It’s also peak season for Arctic alarmists to scream and yell for an “ICE-FREE” Arctic.

HOWEVER, for the entire 21st Century, their cries, smears and slimes at “deniers” and Mother Nature have added up to nothing more than loud voices of a minority, with the usual and telling absence of empirical evidence or scientific reality.

THE attached fifteen second animation of all August years available via DMI, from 2003 – 2015, confirms the lies and falsehoods about the state of the Arctic that “Death Spiral” alarmists bleat about.

JUDGE for yourself if Arctic sea-ice is in a “Death Spiral” as a result of ‘evil’ human carbon dioxideemissions…
