    NASA satellite data from the years 2000 through 2011 show the Earth's atmosphere is allowing far more heat to be released into space than alarmist computer models have predicted, reports a new study in the peer-reviewed science journal Remote Sensing. The study indicates far less future global warming will occur than United Nations computer models have predicted, and supports prior studies indicating increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide trap far less heat than alarmists have claimed.

    So, the ice isn't melting?
  3. If you asked scientists backed by government money, yes.
  4. Ricter


    So the scientists backed by government money were saying the ice is melting, but now they are saying the ice is not melting? And the scientists backed by industry money were saying the ice is not melting, but now they're saying, what, the ice is melting, but not because of Man? Or are industry money backed scientists still saying the ice is melting?

    Meanwhile, what does the ice say? ; )
  5. The ice doesn't matter.

    The transfer of money is all that matters.

    I did not mean to imply that melting ice is necessarily tied to warming.
  7. I haven't read this yet but I've heard it's fantastic.


    In Watermelons, The Green Movement’s True Colors, British journalist/blogger James Delingpole promises to show that the man-made global warming is a fraud, one that has already cost billions of dollars and is a clear and present danger to our liberty and democratic traditions — and, ironically, to the environment itself.

    He largely accomplishes this task and, for the most part, does so without sounding hysterical or radical. This alone would recommend this book to all who care about the environment, the human condition and the foundations of our way of life.

    Delingpole was among the leading journalists who reported the Climategate scandal, in which he analyzed e-mails among leading climate scientists that had been hacked and posted on the web. What he discovered was a pattern of purposeful and coordinated efforts to:

    •Manipulate the data supporting the claims of a sudden and dangerous increase in the earth’s temperature;
    •Not disclose private doubts about whether the world was actually heating up;
    •Suppress evidence that contradicted the hypothesis of anthropogenic global warming (AGW);
    •Disguise the facts around the Medieval Warm Period, when the earth was warmer that it is today;
    •Suppress opposition by squeezing dissenting scientists out of the peer review process.
    Normally, disclosure of fraudulent behavior on this scale would throw the proponents of any position into disrepute and spell the end of their political power. Not so with the advocates of global warming.

    The reason: Global warming is not about science, but about politics — that is, about expanding the power of elites using the coercive instruments of government to control the lives of people everywhere. Just as the governing class embraces ineffective Keynesian stimulus spending to justify expansion of government, they now extol AGW as the basis for increasing their power to rule over the rest of us.

    I remember that in the 1970s, “scientists” had used computer models to “prove” that the increase in industrial activity was about to trigger another ice age. The villains and solutions were the same as with global warming: Economic growth, rising living standards, capitalism and increased economic activity were going to destroy the planet. Then, as now, reduction in the use of fossil fuels, de facto restrictions on the use of automobiles, higher taxes and forced reductions in living standards were the recommended policy responses.

    What makes AGW different is that the alleged pollutant is carbon dioxide — an odorless, colorless gas that is the basis of all life and human activity. Regulation of CO2 is the gateway for those who control government to regulate all economic and most human activity.

    With the stakes this high, it should not be surprising that those who seek power have simply ignored the fraud and continue to press forward with their agenda to regulate “carbon” emissions. Note: This language too is part of the fraud. The emissions they seek to regulate are not dirty, sooty carbon, but carbon dioxide, that harmless gas that we exhale with every breadth.

    Delingpole shows that science, itself, has been corrupted by tens of millions of dollars that governments all over the world provide in grants to scientists whose research supports global warming. “Post Normal Science” has become the new ethical standard for climate scientists. As the late Stephen Schneider, Stanford University Professor who had been one of the leading advocates of the dangers of global cooling in the 1970s, and then, as the lead author for the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) was one of the leading advocates of global warming, explained in an interview with Discover magazine:

    And like most people we’d like to see the world a better place, which in this context translates into our working to reduce the risk of potentially disastrous climatic change. To do that we need to get some broad based support, to capture the public’s imagination. That, of course, entails getting loads of media coverage. So we have to offer up scary scenarios, make simplified, dramatic statements, and make little mention of any doubts we might have. This ‘double ethical bind’ we frequently find ourselves in cannot be solved by any formula. Each of us has to decide what the right balance is between being effective and being honest. I hope that means both.

    There you have it. In the name of the greater good, scientists must be political advocates otherwise they are not being effective. The detached honesty that is the cornerstone of the scientific method? A mere hope.

    Only a few courageous scientists have spoken out publicly against this corruption. Among them is Patrick Moore, the Canadian co-founder of Greenpeace who resigned in 1986 because the organization had “abandoned scientific objectivity in favor of political agendas.”

    Another is Professor Frederick Seitz, formerly president of the National Academy of Sciences who in 1996 wrote in The Wall Street Journal, “I have never witnessed a more disturbing corruption of the peer-review process than the events which led up to this (1995) IPCC (Second Assessment) report.”

    Those events included the deletion of 15 passages from the document that had been approved by all 28 contributing authors who expressed considerable doubt about man-made global warming including these two:

    •“None of the studies cited above has shown clear evidence that we can attribute the observed changes to the specific cause of increase in greenhouse gases.”
    •“No study to date has positively attributed all or part (of the climate change observed) to (man-made) causes.”

    All of this and more supports one of Delingpole’s more provocative claims, that AGW has become a formidable secular religion led by zealots and supported by true believers. What makes it sinister is that it circumvents the First Amendment prohibition against a state sponsored religion. As a consequence, AGW is provided lavish support by government and taught as scientific fact in our schools. Like all state religions, its tenets are imposed on believers and non-believers alike.

    Already, billions of dollars have been wasted, resources squandered, and the environment put at risk by the policies of the warming alarmists. Spain has been lauded for creating 50,000 green jobs. What goes unsaid is the cost of the subsidy, $756,000 per job, likely destroyed 110,000 jobs. And Spain now is shackled with high cost “green” electricity that hobbles its economy, burdensome debt and high unemployment.

    In the aftermath of terrible floods in 1974 the government of Queensland, Australia promised to build dams and other flood control systems. Instead, persuaded by green activists that drought caused by global warming was now the real threat, the government diverted the money into a $13 billion water desalinization plant program. When heavy rains returned earlier this year, the terrible flooding killed dozens of people and caused billions in property losses.

    The American Bird Conservancy estimates 100,000 to 300,000 birds are killed by wind farms in the U.S. each year – roughly equal to the estimated 250,000 birds killed in 1989 by the Exxon Valdez oil spill. Yet, environmentalists fail to speak out, instead averting their eyes to the slaughter as unsightly windmills destroy vistas. And they remain strangely silent on the deployment of solar farms that will cover acres of ecologically sensitive desserts.

    The book is a bit disorganized and full of cheeky British humor, which does not fit my taste. But Delingpole has provided documented insight into a powerful political-scientific complex. This complex is led and supported by “Watermelons,” those whose rhetoric is green, but whose tactics and political ambitions he traces back to the national socialists and communists of earlier eras. Their goal is to control the economy and impose their vision of human society through the coercive power of government. All who cherish liberty, treasure the environment and aspire to a better life should take note.

    I'm sure the current recipients of profit would never resort to subterfuge or fraud to protect themselves.
  9. Perhaps Money is making the ice melt....Obama has been printing trillions of dollars and we all know money burns a hole in your pocket, so it must melt ice too.

    Apparently not....

    28 Mar 11 - Although the media has done a great job of covering this up, the inconvenient fact is that all seven glaciers on California’s Mount Shasta are growing. This includes Whitney Glacier, the state's largest.

    Yes, growing. Not melting

    Not only are Mt. Shasta's glaciers growing, two have nearly doubled in size.

    Both the Hotlum and Wintun Glaciers have nearly doubled in size since 1950, says this article on Wikipedia. The Bolam Glacier has increased by half, while the Whitney and Konwakiton Glaciers have grown by a third.

    Scientists first became aware of these growing California glaciers in 2002, and I began writing about them in 2003. Now, eight years later, most media outlets still refuse to acknowledge that these glaciers are growing.

    After this year's record snowfall, it will become harder to continue the deception.

    Record snowfall

    With a record 98 inches of snow during the month of March, and an estimated 6 feet of new powder during the past week, the Mt. Shasta Ski Park is extending its ski season, said an article yesterday on

    On Monday, the ski park had nearly 22 feet of snow at the top and more than 8 feet at its lodge.

    The City of Mount Shasta, sitting at the foot of the mountain about midway between San Francisco and Portland, Oregon, has broken a 108-year-old snowfall record for March with 97.9 inches, according to the National Weather Service. The old mark of 88 inches was set in 1903.

    For the season, 289 inches (24 feet) of snow has fallen on the city.

    With all of this snowfall, I expect to see more glacier growth on California's fifth tallest mountain.

    Glaciers also growing in Washington and Alaska

    But here's the kicker.

    Not only on Mt. Shasta, glaciers are also growing in Washington and Alaska.

    Look at Washington State. The Nisqually Glacier on Mt. Rainier is growing. Glaciers on Glacier Peak in northern Washington are growing. And Crater Glacier on Mt. Saint Helens is now larger than it was before the 1980 eruption.

    Or look at Alaska. Glaciers are growing in Alaska for the first time in 250 years. Two years ago in May, Alaska’s Hubbard Glacier was advancing at the rate of seven feet (two meters) per day - more than half-a-mile per year. In Icy Bay, at least three glaciers advanced a third of a mile (½ km) in one year.

    Fifth-largest ice field in the Western Hemisphere also growing

    And the Juneau Icefield, which covers 1,505 square miles (3,900 sq km) and is the fifth-largest ice field in the Western Hemisphere, is also growing.

    According to Michael Zemp at the University of Zurich - one of the scientists that Al Gore likes to quote - "some positive values were reported from the North Cascade Mountains and the Juneau Ice Field." ("Positive values" means "growing".)

    The fifth largest ice field in the entire Western Hemisphere is growing, and no one is bothering to report it.

    The next time someone tries to guilt you with talk of melting glaciers, ask if they're aware that glaciers are growing on Mt. Shasta, and in Washington, and in Alaska.

    Ask if they're aware that the fifth largest icefield in the Western Hemisphere is also growing.

    They'll probably be angry that you bothered them with such inconvenient facts.
