GOP Senator Predicts An Ice-Free Arctic

Dan Sullivan (R-Alaska) on Thursday said the U.S. must prepare for an Arctic Ocean that is ice-free in the summer months within the next 20 years.Sullivan, speaking at a hearing for the Senate Commerce Subcommittee on Oceans, Atmosphere, Fisheries, and Coast Guard, which he chairs, pointed to data from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration indicating that as of 2011, Arctic sea ice was “42 percent thinner than it was in 1979.” A close look at the arctic sea ice models that have launched the careers of a thousand polar bears. This is Expertise the UN can bank on In the GWPF 2018 Lecture, Richard Lindzen pointed out the genius of Arctic climate models First, for something to be evidence, it must have been unambiguously predicted.

Researchers found that ice conditions in the 19th century were remarkably similar to today’s, observations falling within normal variability.

Overview. DMI 1991 : Arctic Ice Thickening Since The 1940’s. On the contrary, temperatures have been falling steadily since the 1940s in Greenland, and the polar ice cap is getting thicker and thicker,” Lars Prahm, director of the Danish Meteorological Institute, said at the close of the annual meeting of Nordic Meteorological Institutes.

Mr Prahm, the meeting’s host, dismissed predictions by some scientists that the ice in Greenland, the world’s largest ice-covered island, would melt gradually, causing oceans to rise and flooding low-lying areas around the world, including Bangladesh, the Maldives and some Pacific states. 16 Aug 1991 – Cold water poured on theory that earth is warming up h/t Andy Oz He may have been responding to this wildly fraudulent claim three years earlier. 26 Sep 1988 – Threat to islands.

Long Term Arctic Temperature Trends. By Paul Homewood As I pointed out in my post, Arctic Sea Ice Update, the other day, we currently have low sea ice extent and unusually high temperature anomalies in the Arctic.

Long Term Arctic Temperature Trends

Although much of this is just weather, there is an underlying pattern of warming related to pulses of unusually warm water, which have been entering the Arctic Ocean from the Atlantic for the last decade or more. But just how unusual are conditions there? Visualizing Government Arctic Sea Ice Fraud. “It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends upon his not understanding it.”– Upton Sinclair Government agencies like NOAA, NASA and NSIDC start their sea ice graphs in 1979, in order to make it look like there is a linear decline in sea ice.

NOAA claims they don’t have satellite data before 1979, but they are lying. The 1990 IPCC report showed NOAA satellite data back to 1973, which was much lower than 1979. 1990 IPCC Report. German Scientists Vahrenholt and Lüning: PIK Greenland Meltdown Scenario Handily Refuted. Not long ago the catastrophe-obsessed scientists of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research claimed that another 1.6°C of warming may be enough to melt all of Greenland’s ice and cause global sea levels to rise catastrophically.

Keep in mind that the PIK is probably the biggest producer of catastrophe stories in the world after Hollywood. Prof. Fritz Vahrenholt and Dr. Sebastian Lüning now say this fringe scenario has been handily refuted, citing a new, recently published international study authored by scientists of the Alfred Wegener Institute and others. They write: Good news coming out of Greenland. The AWI study contains a surprising conclusion, say Vahrenholt and Lüning, who write at their Die kalte Sonne blog: Science : Fossil Fuels To Cause A New Ice Age. In 1975, the New York Times predicted spilling fossil fuels would cause a new ice age.

A mathematical model of the Sun's magnetic activity suggests temperatures could start dropping here from 2021, with the potential for winter skating on the River Thames by 2030. A team led by maths professor Valentina Zharkova at Northumbria University built on work from Moscow to predict the movements of two magnetic waves produced by the Sun. It predicts rapidly decreasing magnetic waves for three solar cycles beginning in 2021 and lasting 33 years.
