OMG THERE'S ICE AT THE NORTH FARKING POLE GLOBAL WARMING IS A CONSPIRACY

Hey, guys, there's no global warming.  There's ice, at the north pole, in winter.  Even though there's less than any year in history besides last year or the year before, it's still totally evidence.

You'd have a point, but one of the tenets of global warming is that the north polar icecap should be breaking up. It is ironic to be stuck in ice there.

Oh, that is different.  It's summer at the coldest place on the planet, where some ice is literally millions of years old.  Totally disproving things.

I don't know; it seems pretty ironic to me that the global climate change people are trapped by ice.
 
2013-12-30 10:07:06 AM  
If the planet was so warm that there was no ice at the south pole we wouldn't be discussing global warming on the internet, we'd most likely be dead.

Remember in the 70's and early 80's when everyone was shiatting their pants over a second ice age? Where 60% of the earth would be covered in ice and snow, and we'd all be living in igloos in the Caribbean?

That was great

This is ironic ... for stupid people ... who don't understand the difference between weather and climate ... and that is is cold in the antarctic (even with global warming).

Just in your head.   An ice age is where we should be headed given those "natural cycles" you idiots keep blathering about.  Actual climate science had already settled on the natural of global warming by this point.

No. I remember the science being heavily leaning towards global warming in the 70's.

You know how I remember this? Because all the scientific literature from the 70's is available and it clearly shows this.

There was a time magazine cover in the 70's about cooling ... but you wouldn't be stupid enough to get your science from Time magazine would you?

Once again, the prognostication from the sudo-scientific sky is falling Chicken Littles that spent decades fear mongering with their "There will be no sea ice at all by 2013" prediction is being proved wrong. Wayyyy wrong. Laughably wrong. Again.

Once again, your predictions are less reliable than fromplaygroundstopolitics.files.wordpress.com

You can always debate what is or isn't ironic.

Personally I expect ice in the antarctic. I also expect climate scientists to go there. So climate scientists getting stuck in ice in the antarctic seems reasonably likely to me - as these things go.

Anymore rescue ships get stuck?  Heard Australia was sending an icebreaker.  Why do China and Australia have icebreakers?  China decided the whole of Antarctica lies in its territorial waters, so they need one?   Some guy named Bruce, in Australia, decided they need one after a drunken weekend, and the other Bruces built it?  Who's next to arrive on the scene with a icebreaker, the Dominican Republic.

Well sure, but by way of analogy: you expect skiers to go to cold places, you expect them to have a fire in their cabin, but "burning to death on a ski trip" is still ironic.

Seriously. You are saying that climate scientists, with years of experience, PhDs in the field, mountains of data, and peer-reviewed publications are "sudo-scientific"? (your spelling - you a Linux person?)

But you think right-wing bloggers with no education in the field, no research, no data, and a clear political agenda are scientific??

Wow.

Actually, there WAS much media coverage of the threat of Global Cooling.  See newsweek and The National Science Board's Patterns and Perspectives in Environmental Science report of 1972.

Actually, if you simply go to the Wikipedia page on 'global cooling', you will learn about several sources news about global cooling at the time. Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom is correct.  Global cooling was in the news in the 70s.  Add to that many of the major metropolitan area news programs eventually featured stories about it.

Antarctic sea ice has been growing since satellites first began measuring the ice 33 years ago and the sea ice has been above the 33-year average throughout 2012.

Hey, guys, there's no global warming. There's ice, at the north pole, in winter. Even though there's less than any year in history besides last year or the year before
A chilly Arctic summer has left 533,000 more square miles of ocean covered with ice than at the same time last year - an increase of 29 per cent.

...days before the annual autumn re-freeze is due to begin, an unbroken ice sheet more than half the size of Europe already stretches from the Canadian islands to Russia's northern shores.


Antarctic sea ice set another record this past week, with the most amount of ice ever recorded on day 256 of the calendar year (September 12 of this leap year).

More = Less. Got it. Let me guess. You learned math in U.S. public schools.


Green fear mongering prediction: 0 sea ice by 2013
Reality: Sea Ice Growing at Fastest Pace on Record
...and over 2,000 low temperature records.


Wow, you suck at reading comprehension.  Thanks for sucking so hard, making people with your opinion seem like dim-witted morons who can only regurgitate the same few points.

Just Time Magazine?

"The continued rapid cooling of the earth since WWII is in accord with the increase in global air pollution associated with industrialization, mechanization, urbanization and exploding population." -- Reid Bryson, "Global Ecology; Readings towards a rational strategy for Man", (1971)

"This cooling has already killed hundreds of thousands of people. If it continues and no strong action is taken, it will cause world famine, world chaos and world war, and this could all come about before the year 2000." -- Lowell Ponte "The Cooling", 1976

"If present trends continue, the world will be about four degrees colder for the global mean temperature in 1990, but eleven degrees colder by the year 2000...This is about twice what it would take to put us in an ice age". -- Kenneth E.F. Watt on air pollution and global cooling, Earth Day (1970)

More recent:


wo German scientists, Horst-Joachin Luedecke and Carl-Otto Weiss of the European Institute for Climate and Energy, say that "two naturally occurring climate cycles will combine to lower global temperatures during the next century."

They added, "by the year 2100, temperatures on this planet will plunge to levels seen at the end of the 'Little Ice Age' in 1870."

i.dailymail.co.uk

i.dailymail.co.uk

"Only six years ago, the BBC reported that the Arctic would be ice-free in summer by 2013, citing a scientist in the US who claimed this was a 'conservative' forecast. Perhaps it was their confidence that led more than 20 yachts to try to sail the Northwest Passage from the Atlantic to the Pacific this summer. As of last week, all these vessels were stuck in the ice, some at the eastern end of the passage in Prince Regent Inlet, others further west at Cape Bathurst."

I ask again: Who get's their science from Time magazine? And who cares what people who get their science from Time magazine think? When you want to know what the scientists in the 1970s were researching you look at the scientific literature from the 1970s.

The science is on record. There is no debate. The climate trends were less clear back then so there were a couple of papers on cooling, a large number of papers on warming and the rest were neutral.

People who claim that there was any sort of scientific consensus that global cooling was happening in the 1970s are liars. Which is typical for deniers.

The problem with this particular field is that it relies so heavily on computer modeling that even experienced scientists scratch their heads when asked if the models are correct and predictions accurate.

The biggest problem with all the pessimistic predictions is that aren't going to stop China and India, if anything they'll be encouraged to use even more energy by our continued efforts to cripple our industries .

No, come on, they're authoritarian nincompoops regurgitating the same points over and over.  Yes, liars do that, but the typical denier is a someone who gets told what to say, then says it, without thinking.  You will never ever ever ever hear a topical reply, and only ever, ever, ever, ever one of the same 10-12 talking points that they get told to spew.  If you dismantle their argument, rather than replying to that, they go to the next point, as if it's a reply.

The U.S. space agency NASA announced, the sea ice in the Antarctic has extended over an area of 19.47 million square meters at the end of September. That is the highest since measurements began in 1979.
