Is the Arctic Sea Ice in Retreat?
UPDATE : Its been a year now since I posted this article and felt it was time update a little bit. Here is the latest graph from IARC-JAXA:
April 29th 2011
Back in January of this year, it was very noticeable that many writers chose to no longer wait till minimum ice extent data in September, and chose to inundate many readers about how Arctic Sea Ice was at its lowest for December. That was very poor commentary, even for the ‘hot-heads’.
The measurement of annual Arctic Sea Ice , for good or bad, has always come at minimum ice extent in September. It is upon many predictions, that Co2 will create ice-free summers in the Arctic in the not so distant future.
When sea ice extent didn’t reach the milestone year of 2007, the hot-heads have had to alarm the media in other ways. Stories about thinning multi-year ice, increased concentrations of Co2, methane, and cherry-picking data has become the norm.
The alarmist suggests, that though the Arctic Ice hasn’t fallen below 2007, that it is just a matter of time. The alarmist will emphatically tell you that man-made Co2 will eventually create enough heat to end all of the debate over CAGW( Catastrophic Anthropogenic Global Warming).
The mantra in the media is hype every weather occurrence as man-made.
Be it glaciers, the Arctic, floods, drought, hurricanes, tornadoes, whatever. It’s pathetic to see such desperation, from so many people, to convince themselves and others, that YOU are to blame, for EVERYTHING.
The facts no longer matter. Its your belief that matters now.
The alarmist wants us all to just believe. The alarmist wants us to disregard any theory.
Because any theory or fact that sheds doubt over our blame, is untrue, unproven, political incorrect, and conspiratorial.
The alarmist want to shame you into belief. The alarmist wants to control what you think.
The media inundates us with news on, ‘How to talk to a skeptic’, ‘Its worse than expected’, ‘We’ve gone beyond the tipping point’, It’s our children that will suffer’, ‘The fossil fuel industry is only protecting it’s interests’. So on and so forth.
The only thing in retreat is common sense from those that would have you believe YOU caused all this.
Anyways, come check back by here in September, and lets see if there is anything worth feeling alarmed about. Read more of this post
