Marc Morano observes that the great iceberg of anthropogenic global warming theory is now fast disintegrating into the Sea of Reality. AGW zealots are indeed now facing a nightmarish conundrum. What to do to save their reputations and glittering careers as Chief Scientists, Presidents of the Royal Society, Government Ministers for Climate Change, Failed US Presidential Candidates Turned Nobel Prize-Winners, Journalistic Would-Be Stringers-Up of AGW-Deniers, green NGO empire-builders and professors whose entire livelihoods and academic status have accrued from more than two decades of peddling the biggest anti-science scam of all time but which is now threatening to expose them all to ridicule on an epic scale as global temperatures cool?
The answer is that they pretend that this is not happening.
The BBCs brief and historic outbreak of sanity here last Friday when it asked timorously
What happened to global warming?gave way to normal service today when it reported a prediction that the Arctic could be free of ice in the summer within two decades. The prediction was made by Professor Peter Wadhams of Cambridge University, who was speaking at the launch of the findings of the Catlin Arctic Survey:
Led by explorer Pen Hadow, the teams measurements found that the ice-floes were on average 1.8m thick -- typical of so-called first year ice formed during the past winter and most vulnerable to melting. The survey route -- to the north of Canada -- had been expected to cross areas of older multi-year ice which is thicker and more resilient. When the ridges of ice between floes are included, the expedition found an average thickness of 4.8m.
Professor Wadhams said: The Catlin Arctic Survey data supports the new consensus view - based on seasonal variation of ice extent and

Personally, I think this cooling is God’s way of saying, “hey, your not as bright as you thought, now are you? Don’t have all the answer like you thought you had do you? Remember the Titanic?”
Do what the did back in the 1970's when the same gaggle of Creteians was pushing global cooling and the greenhouse effects of industrialization. The conventional wisdom was that the dust from industrialization would cut down on the amount of solar rays entering the earth and usher in a new ice age. The only solution was to turn the levers of political and economic power over to them so they could decide who got what was left of the diminishing resources in a fair and equitable manner.
They even elected their own president back then too. Some of us remember him as the all wise and great peanut farmer from Georgia.
Denial ain’t just a river in Egypt.
What I want solved is global IQ decreases.
These articles are pure stupidity. Even if we had a massive cooling trend, it would say absolutely nothing toward the issue about climate change having anything to do with man (anthropogenic, now).
We just climbed out of an ice age recently. The earth is warming as a trend within a larger cycle, and fluctuating in shorter cycles and micro-cycles.
Cooling trends don’t dismiss anthropogenic warming any more than warming trends prove it.
Inconvenient FACTS for Inconvenient People....
It’s VERY Orwellian to watch liberal Gore Worshippers deny these FACTS...
(Read this in a haughty British professor's accent)
It is my contention that we would be well into another Ice Age if not for mankinds current rate of production of green house gasses. As the current cooling trend shows, we are not doing enough. We need to increase green house gas production to stabalize our climate. It's either that or we are doomed...DOOMED I SAY.
You know what I always think about. Take a look at the world at night. See how few places on the earth are lite up. Notice that about 2/3 rds. of the earth is covered by water, no one lives there. Global warming my tootsies.
My mind is made up. Don’t confuse me with the facts....
Nothing will slow the Left’s progression for complete government control. Not facts, data, reality nor truth.
Snow on the ground this morning in NH and MA...and it’s only October 16th.
You Racist! (just practicing)
And two days of snow in north central Pennsylvania, too.
From the article: As Climate Skeptic (http://www.climate-skeptic.com/2009/10/telling-half-the-story-100-of-the-time.html) observes:
So 11% of worlds land ice shrinking - Front page headlines. 89% of worlds land ice growing. Silence.
That’s why we should all note very carefully the warning delivered by the President of the United States, in his remarks accepting his Nobel Peace Prize, that climate change was an unacceptable threat that
“could forever damage the world that we pass on to our children.”
What an idjit, that Bammy. He just reads what’s on the teleprompter in front of him. He’s in over his head. He’s the little car-chasing dog who catches one and don’t know now what to do with it.
Great pic...better off in the little boat!
lol.... I love the haughty British accent. It adds that extra touch of, you must know exactly what your talking about.
Heh, yeah, I did my grocery shopping last night, getting home about 8pm. It was beginning to rain when I came out of the store, but five minutes later, as I pulled into our driveway, I realized it was little snowflakes coming down! I think this is the earliest we’ve ever had any snow, even just that little spurt, in the 21 years we’ve lived here in MA.
LOL...Oh lookie it’s Al, isn’t that cute. You know, global warming causes global cooling?
This is even goofier. Is there such a word as, goofier? It’s been snowing here for a couple of weeks off and on, nothing much on the ground, not to unusual for here. Usually by now, the trees would have all turned and the leaves would be falling off or mostly gone. Yet, more than half the trees are still green.
