Surely the world must be coming to an end, preceded by the demise of Arctic Ice. Some of my current favorites are listed below.
Ultimately, the best way to make a name for oneself as a scientist is to overthrow the conventional hypothesis “but to do that it takes extraordinarily good science,” Schneider notes. Climate change contrarians have yet to do this.
(But it is OK for the IPCC to do “extraordinarily bad science.” Only 24 years till the last glacier melts in the Himalayas)
Nobel Prize winner Steven Chu – Obama’s Nobel Prize winning science advisor. Did I mention that he has a Nobel Prize? Anyway, Nobel Prize winner Steven Chu is going to stop that global warming spewing out of the BP well.
Less than a minute into President Obama’s Oval Office address, my heart sank. For the umpteenth time since the Gulf of Mexico oil spill began, an anxious nation was informed that Energy Secretary Steven Chu has a Nobel Prize. Obama’s speech pretty much went down hill from there.
Nobel Prize winner Al Gore has been busy with masseuses of late. This seems to have slowed down his activities to save the planet, just when his planet is screaming out to him.
She said she was intimidated by his physical size, calling him “rotund,” described his “violent temper, dictatorial, commanding attitude” — what she termed a contrast from his “Mr. Smiley global-warming concern persona.”
Surely, with ice at a record low volume, at record hot temperatures, with record decline of ice, the hottest sea surface temperatures ever, and the oceans turning acidic – we must be headed for a nearly ice-free Arctic this summer. Anyone who has been touting these undeniable facts from the leading experts, must be willing to sign up for a huge record minimum. Like Wilson, who is predicting 1.0 million km². What are you waiting for? If you believe all this stuff, Wilson is your man.
Wilson (No organization provided); 1.0 Million Square Kilometers; Statistical and Heuristic 2007’s El Nino did three things to melt off 40% of ice volume relative to 2006: (1) 2007 was hot, 2010 was more so; December was the highest monthly anomaly ever, February was 4th highest, March 10th highest, April 7th highest and the warmest April ever
I wonder if Lewis Pugh is getting his kayak ready again?
30 August 2008
This year, for the first time, scientists predict that the North Pole could briefly be ice free and that has inspired Mr Pugh to try to find a way through….”Nobody has ever attempted to kayak to the pole before. In fact, it would have been impossible last year because it was frozen over,” he said.
It should be an easy trip, because the New York Times reported 10 years ago that the North Pole had already melted, like the Wicked Witch Of The West :
Ages-Old Icecap at North Pole Is Now Liquid, Scientists Find
By JOHN NOBLE WILFORD Published: August 19, 2000
The thick ice that has for ages covered the Arctic Ocean at the pole has turned to water, recent visitors there reported yesterday. At least for the time being, an ice-free patch of ocean about a mile wide has opened at the very top of the world, something that has presumably never before been seen by humans and is more evidence that global warming may be real and already affecting climate. The last time scientists can be certain the pole was awash in water was more than 50 million years ago.
Hopefully this is all perfectly clear. “Just Do It”
