The failed Arctic Ocean predictions of global warming scientists


A quick holiday fund-raising campaign for Behind the Black!
 
Scroll down to read this post.
 
In past years I have managed to avoid asking for donations for Behind the Black during the holiday season. My finances however now compel me to do a short one-week fund-raiser, from November 11 to November 17.
 
I do not use Twitter for ethical reasons, which I have been told cuts down on traffic to the website. So be it. Furthermore, Facebook has clearly acted in the past two years to limit traffic to Behind the Black, almost certainly for political reasons. So be this as well. Finally, I do not post outside ads, as I have found them annoying to my readers and not that profitable to me.

 

Therefore, I need to ask for the direct support from my readers. If you like what I do here, please consider contributing, either by making a one-time donation or a monthly subscription, as indicated in the tip jar below.


 

Regular readers can support Behind The Black with a contribution via paypal:

Or with a subscription with regular donations from your Paypal or credit card account:


If Paypal doesn't work for you, you can support Behind The Black directly by sending your donation by check, payable to Robert Zimmerman, to
 
Behind The Black

P.O.Box 1262

Or you could consider purchasing one of my books, as indicated in the boxes scattered throughout the website. My histories of space exploration are award-winning and are aimed for the general public. All are page-turners, and all not only tell the story of the beginning of the human exploration of space, they also help explain why we are where we are today. And I also have a science fiction book available, Pioneer, which tells its own exciting story while trying to predict what life in space will be like two hundred years in the future.

 

Note that for this week only I am also having a sale on the purchase of the last 20 hardbacks of Leaving Earth. (Click on the link for more information about the book, which was endorsed by Arthur C. Clarke himself!) This award-winning out-of-print book is now only available as an ebook, but I still have a handful of hardbacks available, normally for sale for $70 plus $5 shipping. For this week only you can buy them, personally autographed by me, for $50 plus $5 shipping! Just send me a check, payable to Robert Zimmerman, to the address above, with a note saying that the money is for the Leaving Earth hardback.

 

Please consider donating. Your help will make it possible for me to continue to be an independent reporter in the field of space, science, technology, and culture.

Link here. The post at the link carefully documents the endless numbers of failed doomsday predictions foisted upon us for the past decade, claiming that due to global warming the Arctic Ocean icecap would be gone by 2018.

Instead, in the past three years there is evidence that the icecap has begun to thicken and expand, recovering from a two decade decline. Though this is not a certain conclusion, what is certain is that there is no sign of the icecap vanishing, in any sense. Every prediction documented at the link, by so-called experts, is completely bogus.

There is a reason the public does not take global warming very seriously. Its advocates have cried wolf too many times. Their predictions of doom have consistently failed. Every. Single. Time.

    I don’t remember if this was posted here at the time but National Geographic came clean about the starving polar bear video was not actually because of global warming.

    But because it raised awareness, they have no problem lying.

    To effectively understand –
    Global Warming/climate change is happening
    Global Warming/climate is bad
    Global Warming/climate is caused by man
    Man is bad
    To save the world – Man must be controlled

    Simple – pretty much sums up the bulk of the true believers – a religion by another name

    The media will always run with the more dramatic stories, the vast majority of scientists that have been long forecasting a slow decline in Arctic sea ice don’t get the headlines.

    “Instead, in the past three years there is evidence that the icecap has begun to thicken and expand, recovering from a two decade decline.”

    Seriously?? You’re going to claiming that a dubious increase in sea ice volume for 3 years against a 20 year trend constitutes evidence of a change in the long term trend? Seriously?

    Fortunately I am old enough to recall when the hysteria was global COOLING.

    As the great Louis Rukeyser used to say: “It looks like the end of the world is going to be a little late again this year.”

    You are going to take a 20 year trend assign a bunch of end of the world meaning to it and apply it indefinitely out into the future? Our climate is filled with naturally occurring 20, 50, 100, and even 1000 year fluctuations.

    The best thing for environmentalists that want to control people through the evolutionary fear of an uncertain future is that the climate is always changing, so there will always be something going to to try and scare people with.

    No, haven’t done that.

  • Andrew_W

    And the trend of a decline in arctic sea ice volume is at least 4 decades old.

  • Edward

    Andrew_W,
    You wrote: “And the trend of a decline in arctic sea ice volume is at least 4 decades old.

    You mean to say that when we were saved from the coming ice age the Arctic ice began to decline instead of grow? I, like Steve Holmberg, remember five decades ago, when the Arctic ice cap was going to grow to two miles deep and extend as far south as Minneapolis.

    Oh, thank goodness that we are no longer under threat of freezing and thus no longer need overbearing government regulation and intervention in order to save all our lives from a frozen wasteland of death and season after season of failed crops.

    And that the Northwest Passage will remain open a little longer (it was closed off during the Little Ice Age).

    Whew! Dodged a bullet (made of ice, of course) on that one.

    Bring on that global warming!!!!!

    Have land in Texas in case it gets colder and land in Canada in case it gets warmer.

    Bring it on baby.

    Well, now you all might believe this global warming. Stevie Wonder said it is what gave Aretha Franklin Cancer…
