The New Antarctic “Tipping Point”—Headlines and Facts
canadafreepress.com ^ | 5/14/2014 | Dr. Klaus L.E. Kaiser

Posted on 05/14/2014 7:21:12 AM PDT by rktman

A recent headline in the New York Times says “Scientists Warn of Rising Oceans from Polar Melt.” Other newspapers propagated the story with titles like “Ice sheet collapse ‘unstoppable,’ scientists warn” and “Huge Antarctic ice sheet collapsing.”

The story refers to two recent publications that conclude that “warm water upwelling from the [Antarctic] ocean depths has most likely triggered an inherent instability” that will lead to the envisaged collapse.

There are some problems with such predictions: The facts show otherwise.

Let's see here. It's unstoppable, john f'n kohn-heinz-kerry and the french foreign minister say there's only 500 days to "turn this around". What ever shall we do? Looks like miami will be under 6", 9", 3'6" or 6'9" of water a lot sooner than anticipated. I'm sure glad we moved out of Fl and avoided the rush. If this garbage took us 100 years to cause all these "problems", do these idiots think we can fix the "problems" in less than 500 days? That is, if there is actually a "problem". I guess the "problem" is that there ROI ain't big enough yet. Yeah, call me a denier.

I guess the next question is where to invest in oceanfront property? (better dig out a topo map...LOL!)

500 days can go by real fast.

I suggest we let it — and NOT expand government’s already burdensome regulations and taxes.

Besides, yesterday we were told it’s too late.

This is the same Antarctica where recently, a team of climate researchers (oops, vacationers, according to the MSM) were trapped in the unexpectedly large amounts of ice for several weeks? Where the ice and weather were so bad that a number of rescue attempts failed?

That Antarctica? Which planet do these "researchers" live on?

Of course, global warming Climate Change Climate Disruption proponents have two choices in situations like what's occurring now. Either they can 1) Say "Oops" and lose all of their funding or 2) Double down on the lies and hope that no one calls them on it.

The choice for them is obvious, if you think about it.

Was 15 F here last night, 100 miles north of our (supposed) southern border. Probably killed off the last of my fruit trees.

I think AlGore has saved us from being warm.
Thank you Algore.

Of course, global warming Climate Change Climate Disruption proponents ...

You make an excellent point here.

The only thing that will make Global Warming go away is "Climate Change".

And to get rid of "Climate Change" we will need "Climate Disruption".

To get rid of "Climate Disruption" we will need "Fill in the Blank".

You misunderstand.

We have 500 days to pass permanent, society altering laws that may or may not have an impact on global climate. The issue is that if we don't pass these laws in 500 days the earth god will smite us for our misdeeds.

It’s a comin’. Just that the ocean currents are having a hard time deciding just where to deposit all that excess liquid ice/unfrozen water.

Tipping Point? Is Antarctica going to be the next island that is in danger of tipping over?

(this makes about as much sense as the "threat")

Why in the world would evolutionists want to stop climate change? I mean, to an evolutionist, isn't man just part of the natural Earth system, and isn't change in nature progressive?

Seems to me these evolutionists are standing in the way of what they should believe is natural progress.

And if an evolutionist complains that climate change would endanger the human race, well shame on you for being so selfish that you're willing to halt planetary progress just for a bunch of bipedal pond-scum. There are other species waiting to emerge.

If not, why not?

This is an actual conversation I had with my dear wife (who is well to the left of me):

Me: This weather’s been crazy lately
Wifey: It’s global climate change.
Me: Yeah, it’s called planetary climate cycles. It’s been going on for millenia.
Wifey: Well, it seems more exaggerated the last few years.
Me: It’s certainly exaggerated by the media.

“Seems to me these evolutionists are standing in the way of what they should believe is natural progress.”

This is why humanity is an evolutionary dead end. We became intelligent enough to interfere with natural selection.

500 Days to build an ark!
It must be big enough to fit in all the congressmen, senators, government elites and lobbyists.
Only 500 days. They better get going. Executive order now!

A funny side issue is found in the fact that many of those rescued were “climate change scientists” looking to accumulate more evidence of the global catastrophe they are predicting.

NWO Enforcer (to citizen): To protect the environment, the world government requires you to turn over your suburban house, your private automobile, your plastic bags, your bottled water, your meat, and your incandescent light bulbs - now!

Citizen: But there is no anthropogenic global warming - it has been proven a hoax!

So when can we expect Gore and the others to sell off their mansions and start living a simple lifestyle off the grid? Shouldn’t these people be hanging around the Amish learning how to live without electricity and carbon belching automobiles? After all, who knows better how to recycle manure?

My niece who is a raving leftist at the ripe old age of 20 told me about this. So I asked her a simple question. If the ice sheets break off, and sink into the water, and water levels are going to rise, how long will it take that rise to reach land, and wouldn’t it raise water levels on every land mass?

She looked at me like I had two heads. So I asked her another question. If there is an ice cube in a drink and I break that ice cube into 10 pieces, how long would it take for the water in the drink to flow over the rim of the glass?

She said it is irrelevant because one is global warming and one isn’t. I shook my head and walked away. The only thing that would have confirmed her stupidity and my telling her mother not to waste the 40 grand a year on her colledge education would have been her calling me a racist.

Since we made a blood sacrifice by giving our children's healthcare over to the high priests of Washington DC and a material sacrifice by destroying our cars in cash for clunkers, the earth god was appeased.

Apparently, the volcano has started rumbling again and it is time for another sacrifice. This time she wants us to forgo our cars, jobs, food and standard of living by throwing them into the volcano. That is all that can save us now.
