Media Ridiculed for Hyping "Antarctic Collapse" Amid Record Ice
The New American
26 May 2014
In stark contrast to mainstream media's headlines of an imminent collapse of an Antarctic ice sheet, sea ice levels there are the highest ever recorded.
They are counting on a “common core” educated public to make the global warming scam work.
Yes, but how many people see New American vs. are exposed to the myriad MSM outlets?
As well they should be.
Green is ice present in 2013, which was not present in 1992. Red shows the opposite.
Who is the lifeguard there for? Let me guess... He’s part of some government employee union?
I just posted a story here.
That factual scientific data is not helpful to their cause.
I’m pretty sure that makes you a racist
LOL that’s some funny stuff but I know the locals must be getting damn tired of looking at it.
Proof that the climate is changing.
“Proof that the climate is changing.”
The Earth has a fever..........
The justification is without question. Method, however.
A: Uragan D2 is the most cost effective, but B: Shooting is so much more satisfying, and C: Hanging is street theater.
The real question is how serious we are...
THE ANTARCTIC ICE IS MELTING!
It’s 70 below zero there.
If Antarctica and Greenland ever thaw it will be a boon that will benefit the whole world. The trick is keeping the Sorosians from controlling it.
But what if you shoot em, and then hang em?
OH MY!!!! When all that ice melts the there will be coastal flooding all the way to Illinois!
Ha. Good one. Once it finally melts in August the greenies will be panicking about the melting of the great Lake Superior glacier.
Nah, just repurposed.....like record keeping.....at the DMV.
only because I can’t resist.
There seems to be a beached whale in your picture.
Now I’m running for the hills heh.
That has a satisfyingly reptilian sound to it - very appropriate for the people it applies to.
HEY! That’s my WIFE!!
That is a hilarious photo. People getting a tan with ice out in the water.
only because I cant resist.

Now Im running for the hills heh.
I believe that is a fine specimen of Americanus Arcticus.
Submitted on 2014/05/12 at 2:39 pm All data from last weeks WUWT (May 8) Sea Ice Page. (Todays values (May 12) are slightly lower. Then again, we are 5 days closer to the maximum solar exposure in the Arctic. Thereafter, the arctic gets less sun every day.) But the Antarctic gets more sunshine everyday after June 22 as well.)
1. Excess total sea ice area anomaly is now (May 8) greater than 1.050 million sq kms.
Hmmmn. An excess total sea ice area anomaly (which combines both the Arctic and Antarctic sea ice areas together) approaching the size of Hudson Bay.
2. Excess Antarctic sea ice area is now 1.67 Million sq kms (May 8) Or 97% the area of the entire Greenland ice cap. (A fact which 97% of government-paid climate scientists in the Obama administration will chose to ignore.)
3. By itself, Excess Antarctic sea ice area is now back over 1.67 Mkm^2 a level only reached 5 times before.
A level NEVER reached between 1979 and 2007 in the entire modern (global warming) era, but a level that has been passed five times in the 7 years between 2007 and 2014. Obviously, the more CO2 is in the air, the more Antarctic sea ice area keep increasing, right?
Combine this with the Inconvenient Fact that actual measured satellite global temperatures have NOT increased since 1996 Makes Obama and NASA and NOAA and the NSIDC seem a bit premature maybe in claiming that global warming is a national crisis?
4. Excess Antarctic sea ice area in 2014 is now (May 8) about 1.0 Mkm^2 GREATER than 2013′s sea ice area on this date last year. And 2013 set a record-breaking maximum Antarctic sea ice area in late December. Makes you wonder what will come later in this year.
5. And the Great Lakes sea ice which is NOT included in the NSIDCs sea ice area calculations! has not yet melted away but we are now in the second week in May. Steel, iron ore, coal production are already being affected, companies have already announced second quarter incomes and jobs are being affected in the Great Lakes region.
Now, Arctic sea ice is of course melting, and Arctic sea ice area has been dropping since early April as it does every year. Total sunlight onto the Arctic is increasing, and will increase until June 22 about 5 weeks from now. Arctic sea ice will continue melting through the long summer days up north. But Arctic sea ice will continue decreasing its albedo until late July decreasing from its present 0.93 to towards its low of 0.45 or so in July. But by mid-September when Arctic sea ice is at its minimum and Antarctic sea ice will be near its maximum, the Antarctic sea ice edge will be irradiated by five TIMES as much solar energy per square meter than the Arctic sea ice edge.
So, if 5 times the solar radiation falls on 1.67 million extra square kilometers of newly-frozen excess Antarctic sea ice than falls on a missing 0.4 Mkm^2 of Arctic sea ice, what happens to the planets total heat balance?
Do we not cool off even more?
AFAIK, they’re talking about those red zones at the base of the Antarctic Peninsula, on the left. These are the outlets of glaciers which until recently had been grounded below sea level, but have recently thinned enough to allow seepage under their base, so that they “suddenly” become floating ice shelves and “Bang! Zoom!” there goes the glacier.
So this is the point.

As in any scam, there is money to be made.
There is also power and control of others to be gained.
They claim the WAIS (actually, three glaciers feeding from the WAIS, or 5% of the WAIS ice itself) are retreating catastrophically.
They claim the retreating is due to, or a symptom of, or is occurring simultaneously with, or is measured by a retreat of the grounding line towards deeper water. This deeper water is between the original grounding line, and the original continental bedrock at the original shoreline way back upstream of the glacier.
So If the moving glacier were melting on the bottom (due to an assumed warmer water current getting blown in somehow underneath 450 550 kilometers of packed antarctic sea ice!) then the glacier ice would be shallower at least near the tip, right? If not shallower completely across the toe of the glacier underwater, it would be weaker or less consistent and less able to resist the relentless pressure pushing down from the billions of tons of glacier ice higher up (further away from the grounding line), right?
So, if the bottom toe of the glacier were melting and were weakening or were disappearing completely, would not that relentless force of the upstream glacier ice FORCE the tip of the glacier to move DOWNSTREAM and further away from the continental sea coast? If it were melting underneath, then it would be shallower, and the glacier would move further UP the shallow slope of the grounding line bedrock?
So, the shallower the glacier ice -> the less ice there is underwater -> for the same force pushing the glacier downstream the tip of the glacier must be expanding (getting longer!) or getting pushed further up the sloping bedrock underwater -> the further forward the top of the glacier must be observed!
The deeper the glacier ice, the quicker it hits the sloped grounding line underwater, the further BACK the glacier is touching the grounding line bedrock, and the further back the top of the glacier appears to be moving.
I don’t think the ice sheet collapse has anything to do with the record sea ice levels.
You are correct. It is a scam. We the taxpayers are pouring our hard earned cash into the government trough. These scammers have free reign. They line the politician’s pockets to get access to the trough and they lie to the propagandists to get the people’s acquiescence. It is a money circle that is as diabolical as cancer, with the same results.
LOL! I will admit, the thought did cross my mind as I posted that. I was praying you’d have a sense of humor heh
Well, I’m chewing on it!
As you said, I couldn’t resist.
It’s good to be skeptical but yes, that was from today.
From the above link:
Peer-Reviewed Survey Finds Majority Of Scientists Skeptical Of Global Warming Crisis
It is becoming clear that not only do many scientists dispute the asserted global warming crisis, but these skeptical scientists may indeed form a scientific consensus.
Dont look now, but maybe a scientific consensus exists concerning global warming after all. Only 36 percent of geoscientists and engineers believe that humans are creating a global warming crisis, according to a survey reported in the peer-reviewed Organization Studies. By contrast, a strong majority of the 1,077 respondents believe that nature is the primary cause of recent global warming and/or that future global warming will not be a very serious problem.
Thanks Robert A. Cook, PE.
It’s quite real. I saw it with my own eyes on Sunday. Duluth Harbor still has large chunks of lake ice in it. The ice does tend to move between Duluth and the South Shore depending on which way the wind is blowing but this is the latest ice-out on the big lake that I can remember.
I love the sunbathers on the “ beach”. How desperate are they to catch some UV?
It's not that the ice shelf is collapsing, it's that IT'S TURNING GREEN !
