Climate alarmists are everywhere — but real science continues to show that these scaremongers are the ones full of hot air. Back in 2008, a top “climate prophet” from NASA predicted that the Arctic would be free of sea ice by summer 2018.
But data from 2017 has shown quite the opposite: Ice mass in the Arctic has been growing — not disappearing, much to the chagrin of climate change propagandists everywhere, no doubt.
In June 2008, James Hansen (pictured above) — then-director of the Goddard Institute of Space Sciences — reportedly told the Associated Press, “This is our last chance.”
Hansen is also known as the “godfather of global warming science” (but perhaps global warming mythology would be more fitting). Before Congress, Hansen further declared that we had long passed the “dangerous level” of greenhouse gasses. Ultimately, the NASA expert concluded that within 5 to 10 years, the Arctic would be “free of sea ice in the summer.”
Despite the fears of major ice melts being propagated by Hansen and other proponents of climate change propaganda, the truth is that sea ice mass in the great north has been increasing. How is it that Hansen, the “godfather” of global warming could have gotten it so wrong?
Whatever the reason, over the last decade reports have continuously shown that sea ice mass is not under siege — though that is what the alarmists want you to believe. In September 2017, shocking data from Greenland showed that sea ice mass had increased by a staggering 40 percent since 2012.’
That was fun, now, what does the reality tells us?
