From Al Gore\’s lecture, upon accepting the Nobel Peace Prize for his work in “educating” us about Global Warming:
“LastSeptember 21, as the Northern Hemisphere tilted away from the sun,scientists reported with unprecedented distress that the North Polarice cap is “falling off a cliff.” One study estimated thatit could be completely gone during summer in less than 22 years.Another new study, to be presented by U.S. Navy researchers laterthis week, warns it could happen in as little as 7 years. Sevenyears from now.”
Thespeech by former US Vice-President Al Gore was apocalyptic. \’heNorth Polar ice cap is falling off a cliff,\’ he said. \’It couldbe completely gone in summer in as little as seven years. Seven yearsfrom now.\’
Thosecomments came in 2007 as Mr Gore accepted the Nobel Peace Prize forhis campaigning on climate change.
Butseven years after his warning, The Mail on Sunday can reveal that,far from vanishing, the Arctic ice cap has expanded for the secondyear in succession – with a surge, depending on how you measure it,of between 43 and 63 per cent since 2012.
Themost widely used measurements of Arctic ice extent are the dailysatellite readings issued by the US National Snow and Ice DataCenter, which is co-funded by Nasa. These reveal that – while thelong-term trend still shows a decline – last Monday, August 25, thearea of the Arctic Ocean with at least 15 per cent ice cover was 5.62million square kilometres.
Notice a difference? Like that, since Al Gore lectured us about the global warming apocalypse soon to engulf us all, the ice cover has done nothing but expand? That it is now 43% – 63% greater than it was when he accepted the Nobel Prize?
Maybe they should rename it the Nobelievability Prize.
At this point, you might ask why, if these data were gathered by the NASA-funded U.S. National Snow and Ice Data Center, I would be using a London newspaper to tell you about them. Why am I not using one or another of the many reports about this obviously newsworthy story from U.S. media sources.
It\’s a good question, which deserves an answer.
The answer is that media in this country, in aggregate, are so completely sold on Gore\’s man-made global warming/climate change mantra, and/or so cowed by the groups which aggressively inform us that anyone who disagrees is a Neanderthal right wing imbecile with a lump of coal for a brain, that they do not – make that will not – report this information. Even though it is 100% science based and shows that there very definitely is another side to the story.
Add the fact that Barack Obama is all in with the man-made climate change crowd, so putting it in dispute could be embarrassing for his Accomplice Media, and there you have it. Factual data which challenge global warming/climate change/whatever else they\’re calling it this month are going to be suppressed.
But there is no lack of references to the bogus claim that 97% of all scientists agree man-made global warming is on the cusp of doing us all in.
Is there global warming? Over a long period of time (though not in the past 17 or so years – another fact that is largely suppressed), yes there is. Does man have something to do with it? Yes, But many scientists – one helluva lot more than 3% I am sure – point out that man\’s “contribution” is infinitesimal compared to natural phenomena we have no control over.
In fact, it is an excellent bet that cow burps and farts – which expel methane gas into the atmosphere – have more to do with global warming than anything man has done.
Don\’t laugh, either. I\’m not making a joke here. I mean it. Read this short-and-to-the-point description from the scientists out of University of California – Santa Barbara (UCSB) to see for yourself. And, trust me, they are far from the only ones. Google “cow farts global warming” for pages of similar sources.
Then think about the fact that cow burps and farts apparently provide more meaningful information about global warming than Al Gore did.
And, finally, with these conclusions in mind, spend a little time wondering whatever happened to media which are truly committed to presenting both sides of the issue….or whether we ever had such media in the first place.
