From the Daily Mail: “Global warming computer models confounded as Antarctic sea ice hits new record high with 2.1million square miles more than is usual for time of year.”
The levels of Antarctic sea-ice last week hit an all-time high – confounding climate change computer models which say it should be in decline.
America’s National Snow and Ice Data Center, which is funded by NASA, revealed that ice around the southern continent covers about 16 million sq km, more than 2.1 million more than is usual for the time of year.
It is by far the highest level since satellite observations on which the figures depend began in 1979.
In statistical terms, the extent of the ice cover is hugely significant.
It represents the latest stage in a trend that started ten years ago, and means that an area the size of Greenland, which would normally be open water, is now frozen.
The Antarctic surge is so big that overall, although Arctic ice has decreased, the frozen area around both poles is one million square kilometres more than the long-term average.
In its authoritative Fifth Assessment Report released last year, the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change admitted that the computer models on which scientists base their projections say Antarctic ice should be in decline, not increasing.
The report said: “There is low confidence in the scientific understanding of the observed increase in Antarctic sea ice extent since 1979, due to… incomplete and competing scientific explanations for the causes of change.”
So… let me get this straight: You admit your scientists don’t have a clue as to why these things are happening and why your predictions are absolutely opposite of reality, but Barack Obama says we have to destroy the economy—inflict great harm on people through exponentially increasing energy prices—in order to save the world, and John Kerry is traveling the globe (creating a massive, massive “carbon footprint”) saying this is the gravest threat in existence to national security.
But… again… our computer models are completely wrong, and our scientists are absolutely clueless. What am I missing here?
Don’t buy the Climate Change lie.
