A lot of things happened in 1979, Three Mile Island Nuclear Plant almost sent parts of Pennsylvania to China, Iran broke in to the US Embassy in Tehran and took 90 hostages, the Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan, Sadat and Begin signed a peace deal, the NY Mets sucked winning only 66 games, and….oh and NASA satellite instruments began measuring the ice caps.
When speaking at Coast Guard academy on Wednesday President Obama talked about NASA and polar ice:
Our scientists at NASA just reported that some of the sea ice around Antarctica is breaking up even faster than expected. The world’s glaciers are melting, pouring new water into the ocean.
The President was trying to deceive the American people:
take our poll - story continues below
Updated NASA satellite data show the polar ice caps remained at approximately their 1979 extent until the middle of the last decade. Beginning in 2005, however, polar ice modestly receded for several years. By 2012, polar sea ice had receded by approximately 10 percent from 1979 measurements. (Total polar ice area – factoring in both sea and land ice – had receded by much less than 10 percent, but alarmists focused on the sea ice loss as “proof” of a global warming crisis.)
But there is bad news for the Al Gore set:
In late 2012, however, polar ice dramatically rebounded and quickly surpassed the post-1979 average. Ever since, the polar ice caps have been at a greater average extent than the post-1979 mean. Now, in May 2015, the updated NASA data show polar sea ice is approximately 5 percent above the post-1979 average.
Despite the fact that Polar Ice has been growing since 2012, the climate alarmists are still screaming that the sky is falling.
“Climate change is melting more than just the polar ice caps”
“2020: Antarctic ice shelf could collapse”
“An Arctic ice cap’s shockingly rapid slide into the sea”
“New satellite maps show polar ice caps melting at ‘unprecedented rate’”
Sadly all that these warnings are doing is giving false hope to people in Ohio that the value of their homes are going up because the ice caps are melting the east coast will flood and they will soon have waterfront property.
According to Taylor the only place were one can find out that the Ice Caps aren’t going away are conservative websites
The “mainstream” media is alternating between maintaining radio silence on the extended run of above-average polar ice and falsely asserting the polar ice caps are receding at an alarming rate.
Beyond that there is President Obama who looks at global warming as an excuse to transfer wealth from the imperialistic nations who “have” to the subjugated nations who “have not.”
But mother nature is not cooperating temperatures haven’t risen in almost 18 and half years, and some scientists are predicting that the Earth is approaching an Ice Age. Some of those scientists predicting a colds work with some of the organizations who are pushing the climate change hypothesis the hardest such as NASA, the NOAA, the British Met office amongst others, and are saying temperature changes follow along with sunspot activity. The earth gets warmer as there are more sunspots, and we have begun a very low sunspot period which looks like it will match the low sunset period which brought us the “Little Ice Age” in the late 17th and 18th centuries.
