The Climate Con Artists are at it again, playing games with the calendar

Perhaps you recently noticed it, while browsing through a search engine.  Numerous articles dated the 24th, 25th, or 26th of September 2023 exclaimed that Antarctica had its largest temperature rise in known history.  This included Newsweek Magazine.  The many similar headlines made it instantly seem that, at the end of Antarctica's coldest time of the year --- in September 2023 --- Antarctica underwent its highest temperature rise ever known to mankind, in a week-long heat wave.  

The great deception here was that each one of those September 24, 25, or 26, 2023 Antarctic heat rise news reports was referring to the Antarctic heat rise that occurred during the end of the Antarctic SUMMER of 2022 --- during March of 2022 --- one and a half years ago --- toward the end of the hottest time of the year for the South Pole.  

Those headlines and their affixed dates made it appear that a heat wave is invading Antarctica during its winter.  That's as good as telling people that the End of the World is here.   Thus, if you saw those September headlines while you were in a rush, you got deceived intentionally.  After all, the common person would think that a news report dated September 25th, 2023, is reporting something that happened in late September of 2023 . . . and NOT during March of 2022.

Six months of darkness.  Yet, the news reports are headlined with sunny daylight photos.

The supreme asininity of reporting on Antarctica in the wintertime, in trying to tell people that massive ice loss is evident there, consists in the fact that there actually are 6 consecutive months of darkness in Antarctica.  This is because the sun's orange globe is never seen above the horizon.  So, how can you confidently report on a massive place losing massive amounts of ice if you can't even see the massive place?  

Antarctica is a massive place that is dark for six consecutive months.  Do you understand, yet?  If you see a sunny daylight photo of ice melting on water, then you are not looking at Antarctica in the wintertime.  Chances are that you are viewing a summertime photo.  So, why are there so many Antarctic wintertime ice-melt news articles headlined by sunny daylight photos of ice plates melting on water?

This deception's only possible motive was that of making mankind feel a sense of urgency so severe that it would demand the US government to speed-up the spending of its $370 billion appropriation allotment to certain climate-related entities.  These journalists are crying wolf so often that it has gotten to be instantly annoying.  

It has gotten to the point where the working man and the ranch (homesteader) woman do not want to hear about "climate change" anymore.  This is especially the case, being that the vast majority of humans did NOT experience any type of exceptionally horrifying weather disaster.  People keep hearing about them, but they don't personally see any of them.   Thus, they are "just not feeling it."  As was previously mentioned,  this is a matter of climate con artists hyper-exaggerating weather events to the point of ridiculousness. 

This is what happens when geektoid, nerdo, swirly-boy scientific dweebs attempt to seduce.  They don't have the ingredients for such seduction.  If it weren't for the news entities that ever-so-coincidentally received a measure of donation money from Bill Gates, then the climate con game would have ended in 2009, with the disclosure of the Climategate emails.

The Blue Marble Album explained a number of recent climate hoaxes.  That's one of the reasons why there is a search box at the top righthand corner of this site.  You can search around here, free of charge.  There is no subscription fee here.  There is nothing for sale, here.  Neither peer reviewed papers, nor charts, nor printed t-shirts, nor posters, nor cookbooks, nor vacation packages, nor powdered protein, nor "survival kits," nor anything else for sale.  

There are a lot of pieces of evidentiary support at this site, to show you that "it" (Climate Hysteria) has been a predictable con game, all along.  The motive has been money --- taxpayer dollars, NGO donations, grassroots fundraising drive pledges, and of course ===> United Stated Congressional funding allotments, aka "appropriations.".

Below is a NASA/NSIDC visualization of the state of Antarctica, as of September 27, 2023.  Earlier this month, it was officially declared that the least amount of yearly MAXIMUM SEA ICE EXTENT occurred this September, in 2023.  And of course, climate activists are treating this event as the start of the End of the World.  

Now, the visualization below is that of the lowest amount of Antarctica's maximum sea ice volume.  As you can see, the smallest yearly maximum is still massively large in size. That is to say, the lowest amount is not much different than the yearly median.   The amber line below is the "median perimeter" of sea ice at the end of Antarctic winters.  Median is close to the "average."  Thus, the amber circular line is "the usual" sea ice volume for Antarctic winters.

In the visualization of 2023's sea ice, West Antarctica has more ice than usual.  And of course, it's only slightly more.  Some parts of Antarctica are the same as usual, in sea ice volume.  The other sectors show that there is not that much sea ice loss, in 2023.  All in all, there is not that much difference between the median and the lowest amount.   Yet, the climate activists have to make it look like the End of the World.

Antarctica was repeatedly covered in the Blue Marble Album.  Go read the discourses ... or, at the least, look at all of the evidentiary support in those discourses.  At the least, look at the pictures, charts, and graphs, as well as newspaper headlines from 1936, 1922, 1911, 1901, 1878, 1852, etc.

Journalists today painted Antarctica as a place in a dire mess.  It was painted as a place where ice is melting all over the place.  It's painted as a place where sun tanning is easy to do.  Well, that is, of course, an intelligence-insulting hoax.  None the less, the goal of this post was to show you that the Wintertime of 2023 reports about a massive Antarctic temperature rise involved the temperature rise during the Summer of 2022, a year and a half prior.  It's NOT happening right now.  Yet, the journalists made something that happened a year and a half ago look like it's occurring now --- to scare you.

September 28, 2023

The heat of July 1852 and other years, when atmospheric CO2 was very low.

Above: A news article published on July 27, 1852.  Atmospheric co2 was 285 ppm.  In of September 2023, it was 418 ppm. 
The article above shows that people in the 1850s commonly accepted the concept of the Medieval Warm Period.  This is indicated by mention of "the burning plough-shares of medieval times."  The article below (at the very end of this post) shows the 1850 understanding of the past 1,000 years weather not being mild, as con artists Michael Mann and David Attenborough very falsely claimed.  

There needs to be a Reality Check, concerning the proven FALSE ASSERTION that rising CO2 levels cause more severe weather events .... and more damage to Planet Earth.  After all, the textbook-defined "Pressure Gradient Force" is a law of nature by which the closer the temps between the poles and the Equator happen to be, the lesser is the turbulence in the atmosphere.   

For those in the American public school system, phases of global warming (such as the absolutely proven Medieval Warm Period) are times by which temperatures between the poles and the Equator come closer to each other.  Global Cooling phases (such as the 1284-1840 Little Ice Age) are accompanied by temperatures between the poles and the Equator getting further apart from each other.  

This means that global warming = less atmospheric turbulence, while global cooling = more atmospheric turbulence   Plus, El Nino brings with it "wind shearing propensity." And of course, El Nino directs heat in an Eastward direction.

All in all, Planet Earth has a mechanism by which the planet takes action to balance itself.  When the DIFFERENCE in temps between the poles and the Equator increase, the Earth experiences an imbalance.  So, it goes about,  to balance things out.  Thus come hurricanes which happen to be nature's way of sending excess heat from the Tropics northward.

It's during global cooling phases when more turbulent hurricanes such as Camille occur.  Camille occurred during the 1940-1979 temperature decline that Michael Mann hid in his hockey stick graph.  This decline was mentioned in the Climategate emails of 2009.  If you have viewed recent hurricane season stats, you would see that there are now more low-speed cyclones called Tropical Storms.  

BTW, during pronounced global cooling phases, there still occurs droughts and heatwaves, such as the Great Tudor Heatwave & Drought of 1540.  More importantly, the repeated assertion that "None of this has ever happened before" must be recognized as the lie it is, when talking about any recent heatwave, cyclone, or flood.  "It" all happened previously, in more pronounced severity --- in tragic proportions ... in more pronounced turbulency & in many more deaths.  So, historical accounts easily provide the evidence to show that the demonization of CO2 is a propagandist's lie.  

The motive for demonizing co2 was and is  1] U.S. Congressional taxpayer dollar appropriations.  2] the establishment & maintenance of the blatantly bogus "carbon credit market."  3] the equally bogus "carbon tax."  4] governmental control over every citizen's private daily life activities,  5] an equally bogus excuse for sterilization and abortion,  6] NGO financial donations which have a way of getting into activists' personnel bank accounts.  Thus, the motive has been to acquire ===> easy money. 

Below: An 1878 article which also shows that dreadful heat certainly occurred when the atmospheric co2 level was too low to have caused any of the many heat waves throughout history.  Statistically speaking, 1896 was the year of the hottest heat waves, and 1934 was the year of the worst drought in the past one thousand years; so stated for the record.
Below is a Sunday newspaper article, from London's The Observer newspaper, dated July 18, 1852.  In 1852, atmospheric CO2 was very low, and the news article below recounts disastrous weather years which occurred in the centuries when the atmospheric CO2 level was always extremely low --- (between 275 to 285 ppm).  This level was not far away from the atmospheric CO2 level during Caveman days (260 ppm) ... Fertile Crescent Days ... Assyrian Empire Days ... Alexander the Great Days ... Roman Empire Days ... Justinian Plague Years ... Medieval Warm Period Years ... and even Renaissance Era Years.

A certain British speech giver, along with the hockey stick graph drawer, Michael Mann, asserted that the past one thousand years were years of ongoing & non-stop mild weather, up and unto the Industrial Revolution.  For anyone enterprising enough to have studied even a small sample of the historical chronicles, the almanacs, the ship logs, the temperature reports, the newspaper articles, and the magazine articles on the subject, this mild-weather assertion is an insult to the reasonable person's intelligence.

The historical accounts, the military logs, the monastic records, the proxy evidence, the Elbe River "hunger stones" of Central Europe,  all show that life on Earth has been a challenge even when co2 was  very low.  Life on Earth has been tragic, even during low co2 levels.  It drained people.   Yet, civilization continued and mankind survived.  A Candyland is something that Planet Earth is not.

September 25, 2023

The Great South American Heatwave Hoax of 2023

It was a super big media alarm.  The End of the World was coming.  Oh my!  An untold, unprecedented, unparalleled, unimaginable, unquenchable, and unbearable heatwave was menacing South America, during its Winter of 2023.  The central focal point of time was August 1st of that year.  

Santiago was reported as being a place of oppressive & "sweltering heat," all the while creating plumes of deadly smog over the city ... even though smog is simply ground-level ozone and is NOT formed the way in which journalists uneducated in atmospheric science claim.  

None the less, also put on display was Vicuna, Coquimbe (in Chile).  It was reported to have reached 99F there, on August 1st, 2023 ... NOT.  It was then mentioned by none other than the less-than-honest CNN that 100F+ temperature readings were occurring throughout South America.  The meteorological companies tell a much more tame story.

As an example, world renown Accuweather and the equally renown Weather Channel marked Vicuna as having reached no higher than 63 degrees Fahrenheit, on August 1st..  The evidence is below, in multiple professional meteorological report illustrations, all posted pursuant to the United States Fair Use Act.  

Immediately below is part of a CNN article, also posted pursuant to the US Fair Use Act.  It's a report on the August temperatures in Chile.  Take note that it states:  "dozens of stations are recording their highest ever temperatures in the first half of August."  The mention of 100F temperature readings is also in that news article.  

Okay then.  Where is the list of the weather stations involved?  Where are the official stats, data, charts, calendars, graphs, reports, briefings?  Where's the evidence?  Were people being hospitalized by the tens of thousand in those areas?  Were people dying by the thousand there?   People were dying by the thousand in Paris France, in 1911.  Paris 1976 and 2003 were tragic summers, also.  So, if South America in the Winter of 2023 was not like Paris in 1911, then the recent news reports were a collective fraud via sensationalistic hyper-exaggeration ... done by media employees who need to be fired immediately.

Below is actually one of many Doomsday passages in the CNN Book of the Apocalypse.  This is countered by over 31 pieces of evidentiary support, all posted here.  Let us begin.  Shall we?

This makes it appear that South America ... between the 30th and 35th Parallels ... has become an apocalyptic inferno that demands an immediate environmental response by which all humans are to surrender all of their rights and then do whatever they are told to do.

Now remember, "extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence." (Carl Sagan)  In as much, where is the picture of the thermometer which recorded a 99F or a 100+ degree reading in Wintertime Chile? Where are all the certifications of all of these "hottest day ever" assertions? 

Concerning Santiago's "smog" and "sweltering heat," it was officially reported by meteorological professionals to have been a "foggy" ... and NOT smoggy ... day there, on August 1st --- with a 72F to 74F high and a 39F low.  Someone lied once again to humanity, in an intentional act to create emotional distress and to maybe get some of that US Congressional funding send their way.

Immediately below are three reports of Santiago, for August 2023, posted pursuant to the Fair Use Act.  One of from the world famous Weather Channel.  Another is from the equally known Accuweather.  The third one is the reading at the international airport in Santiago.  No 100F heat there.  No 90F heat there.  No 81F, 82F, 83F, 84F, or 85F heat there, in August of 2023.  The only brutal heat in Santiago was the heat coming out of the engines of the passenger jets there.

*   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   
A town near Santiago would have close to the same temperature as did Santiago.  Thus, the nearby town of Puento Alto could confirm if anywhere near Santiago was brutally hot.  It wasn't.  Puento Alto reported 72F as the high temperature on August the 1st.
Below:  Another two Puente Alto weather reports for the months of July and August 2023.  These are two products of the world renown Weather Channel.  According to this report, it was 73F or 74F in Puente Alto, on Tuesday, August 1st, 2023.  That's NOT sweltering heat.

We begin with the August 2023 calendar, so that you can see immediately that August 1st near Santiago was only in the low 70s Fahrenheit.  This is more evidence that the media reporters lie and lie and lie again.
Below here:  Take note how mild the July temperatures were, also.  You need to come to terms with the reality that the modern media lies.  Proof is that it never allows climate debates.  Media info is rigged info.
We next go to Vicuna ... in Chile ... being that the commercial media reported it as having been 99F there, in the middle of wintertime, on Aug 1st, 2023.  The reality is that both the world renown Weather Channel and the equally known Accuweather corporation reported Vicuna as having had a temperature no higher than 63 degrees Fahrenheit, on August 1, 2023.  

When it comes to discerning the truth about the claim of Vicuna Coquimbo's high temperature as of August 1, 2023, the tale of the tape will be found in [1] the temperatures of the towns surrounding Vicuna, [2] and in the temperatures of the days surrounding August 1st, 2023.

Below is the weather report for August 1st (2023), only.  The report was that Vicuna was only 24C.  Now, 24C = 75F.  That's 24F lower than what the media reported.  In fact, the Weather Channel & Accuweather reports were 36F lower than what the media reported. 

Below:  Towns relatively close to Vicuna

If Vicuna were 99F on August 1st, then nearby towns would have been unusually hot, also.  Let's start with PAIGUANO, 11.8 miles away from Vicuna,.  Surely two cities less than 12 miles apart from each other would have the same weather and temperatures.  Well, according to well-known Accuweather, on the day when the media reported Vicuna as having reached 99 degrees Fahrenheit, Paiguano's high for that same day was only 63 degrees Fahrenheit (17.2C).  In fact, throughout the entire month of July ... and throughout the first five days of August 2023, the temperature at Paiguano did NOT exceed 69F (20.5C) ... according to the same Accuweather meteorological service.  That is a 42-day period.  Where is this 100F heat that CNN said was out there?

Below is what worldweatheronline reported about Paiguano, for Tuesday August 01, 2023.  And it is the same Paiguano which is situated in the Region of Coquimbo, Chile, 12 miles away from Vicuna.
24C = 75F.  That's NOT a heatwave temperature.
One more temperature record of neighboring Paiguano is below.  This one is by the Weather Channel.  Where is all of the End-of-the-World heat that the mainstream media reported?  According to the world famous Weather Channel, nearby Paiguano was only 63 degrees Fahrenheit, and not anywhere near 99F.  Do you yet see how much and how badly today's mainstream media lies?  Do you see how some TV networks need to have their FCC licensing revoked?
Below:  Let's go next to Ovalle which happens to be 49 miles away from Vicuna.  Therefore, if there were a widespread heatwave, Ovalle could have reflected this.  However, it did not do so.  Ovalle was NOT reported as having had any 90+ Fahrenheit day in July or in early August 2023, by any weather website.  In fact, it didn't even register an 80F day, between June 25 to August 5, 2023.  The Weather Channel reported Ovalle as having had a 71F high temp on Aug 1, 2023.
Keep in mind that this is the July 2023 report.  This means that the report for Tuesday, August 1 high temp is in the bottom row here.  The first five days of August are reported in that row.
Next comes Accuweather's report on Ovalle, for the First of August, 2023.  63F on August 1st.  Now, Ovalle may get visited by true heatwave temperatures next week, but it didn't get visited by searing heat in late July or in early August.  The August 1 high temp report is at the bottom row of this calendar, along with the first five days of August.  This is because the calendar below is the one for July 2023.  It's here, instead of the August 2023 calendar, so that you can see that there was no "global boiling" transacting in Ovalle, during July, leading up to August 1st.  As you can see, there was no 100F days there, in July of 2023.  

Below:  Another town near Vicuna is Pisco Elqui.  It's 24 miles from Vicuna.  So, if Vicuna had blazing heat, then so too would have nearby Pisco Elqui.  Well, on August 1st, 2023, Pisco Elqui was said to have been only 63F according to the world famous Weather Channel & Accuweather corporation.   So, where's all the End-of-the-World heat?  
Below: Accuweather reported the exact same temperature for Pisco Elqui as did the Weather Channel.  No 100F temps there, and no debate here.   Only lies from CNN and similar intruders upon the modern mind exist.
Below:  Next is Andacollo Coquimbe.  It's approximately 26 miles from Vicuna.  The Weather Channel claimed that the August 1, 2023 high temperature there was only 63 degrees Fahrenheit.  That amounts to 36 degrees LESS THAN the 99F reported by the mainstream media as having occurred at nearby Vicuna.  
Below: Accuweather concurred with the Weather Channel ... or visa-vera.  Andacolla's high for August 1st, 2023 was only 63F.  Both mainstream weather services agreed that there was no 80+F day and no 90+F day in Andacollo, from late June to Early August.  
Below:  Also near Vicuna is La Serena, 35-40 miles away.  Now, if you have 99F in one town, then you will have nearly as hot a temperature 40 miles away.  The La Serena temp for Aug 1st was 63F, according to the Weather Channel.  That's 36 degrees Fahrenheit lower than what was reported by the mainstream media, for Vicuna.  This is yet another confirmation that the media of today is operated by liars who need to be fired at once.
Below is another weather chart report on the same La Serena, also in calendar form.  It concurs with the chart above.  Both weather agencies claim that it was 63F in La Serena on the day when nearby Vicuna was supposed to have been 99F.
Now, pursuant to the extremely famous Carl Sagan:  "Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence."  And of course, CNN and the other climate hysteria networks showed zero evidence to support their over-the-top claims.  Concerning CNN mentioning the creation of smog in Santiago, the professional meteorologists mentioned Santiago having --- NOT smog.  

Now, the greatest smog disaster ever ... which occurred in Donora Pennsylvania, in 1948 ... occurred due to a thermal inversion in late OCTOBER, when chilly autumn weather was present.  In a thermal inversion, the cold temps are at the surface, and the warmer temps are above the cooler temps.  To attribute a cloud of hovering smog to a heated day shows that the writer knows nothing about basic atmospheric science, even though he/she presents himself/herself as an expert with a degree of knowledge above and beyond "the little people."

"Smog" is a phrase that was originally used to describe the combination of fog & smoke during the days of heavy European coal use.  Heat does NOT cause smog.  Photochemical reactions do, and nitrogen oxides are ingredients.  Classical Smog is basically ground-level ozone (surface-level ozone) that needs cooler temps.  Furthermore, when it comes to photochemical smog, sunlight is required ffor that to occur.  More weather reports on Santiago are posed here, in addition to the ones above,  just to prove that CNN is nothing more than a corporation of liars.

Note: 24C = 75F ... 18C = 64F ... 12C = 53F.

Above:  According the this weather agency, it was only 72F on Tuesday, August 1st, 2023.  This proves CNN to have been a liar, in claiming that Santiago was going through never-before-seen "sweltering heat." 

Below confirms CNN's dishonesty.  It was 72F in Santiago on August 1st.  No "sweltering heat" was there, as the liars at CNN falsely stated.  And of course, CNN needs to fire every liar.

Now, for Buenos Aires

The mainstream reports specifically mentioned how Buenos Aires got caught in the alleged South American heatwave of 2023 with a heat wave of untold proportions, as well as Uruguay in general.  

Okay then, for my first trick, ladies & gentlemen of the jury, I will show you a professional temperature report of none other than hot hot Buenos Aires!!!  Needless to say, it's posted pursuant to the Fair Use Act of 2007.  Look for yourself and see ... see how full of crap the modern media and climate activists are.  Thirty-six days out of forty-two days there had high temperatures in the 50s & 60s Fahrenheit.  This is not any kind of climate crisis for that region at any time.

Below is another professional monthly temperature report on hot hot Buenos Aires, from June 26 to Aug 5 2023.  This one is from the world renown Weather Channel. 
Below:  Now for the city across the river from Buenos Aires.  If Buenos Aires were as hot as the media claimed, then the city across the Rio de la Plata would be as hot.  That city is Colonia del Sacramento, in Uruguay.  In a 42 day period, from June 25 to August 6, 2023, the city across from "hot hot" Buenos Aires had a high in the 50s for 20 of those days, along with a high in the 60s on 15 of those days.  Zero days were in the 80s or 90s.  So, where is this heatwave the media obsessively reported?
Below: Colonia del Sacramento, Uruguay once again, for confirmational & concurrence purposes.
Above:  In a 42 day period, 17 days had highs in the 50s, 15 days had  highs in the 60s, and even 2 days had highs in the 40s ... Fahrenheit, of course.
Below: Uruguay most definitely was mentioned in the commercial news reports as having been hit with massive heat this past Winter.  Let's next present the July/Aug temps of the largest city there.  That is Montevideo.  Below are the temps there, as of late June to early August 2023.   It shows the South American heatwave report to have been more dishonest than the 2009 Climategate emails.   Half of the highs were in the 50s Fahrenheit in Montevideo, and almost a third were in the 60s there.  See for yourself, below:
Below is another professional temperature calendar of Montevideo Uruguay, between late June and early August 2023.  In as much, where is this highest-temperature-ever South American heatwave?  

BTW, cities near the Tropics do NOT count, in claiming "global boiling" heat.  This is because the Tropics are the hottest places on Earth, next to valleys at the base of the leeward side of mountain ranges.  Thus, high temps are usual for the Tropics.  Heatwaves involve heat anomalies.
Let's now go toward the center of Uruguay, to Durazno.  Keep in mind that the media claimed that even Uruguay was getting pounded with heat in July and August of 2023.  Between June 25th and August 5th, Durazno had four days with highs in the 40s, 18 days with highs in the 50s,  and 11 days with highs in the 60s ... Fahrenheit.  No 99F days.  No 89F days.  That's not a climate crisis.  That's NOT Global Boiling.  Look for yourself:
Now, there was a place in central Argentina which did have an unexpected heatwave of note.  That, alone, would have been enough subject matter for the climate hysteria people to have reported.  But apparently, the climate folk had to "pour it on" and expand the perimeters of the heatwave, in order to scare you into submission.  This was apparently done, so that they will get a handsome share of that multi-billion dollar US congressional "climate funding."  

In order to get a large amount of taxpayer-indebted money from the US Congress, you have to deceive people into thinking that the world is coming to an end and it needs you to save it.  Keeping people stupid and easily deceived is absolutely necessary for you.   CNN works hard to accomplish the task of keeping modern humanity completely stupid and utterly mindless.

None the less, any true heat during July & Aug 2023 can all be attributed to El Nino, and NOT to the burning of fossil fuels.  As I illustrated in a previous post, El Nino can also be attributed as the cause of the lack of high velocity Atlantic Hurricanes.  El Nino brings wind shear power to the Atlantic.  And of course, Hurricane Lee was a prime example of El Nino taming a hurricane.  

In as much, climate is extremely intricate.  It's not the simpleton version presented by Al Gore to the English-speaking world in 2006.  That movie was an insult to one's intelligence.  The way of the climate activist is the way of hyper-exaggerating everything so much so that it becomes a ridiculous lie.  The climate activists blow everything out of proportion.  

Now, 2023 did have a "heat anomaly summer" attached to it.  In fact, 2023 had three heat anomaly months in a row.  But, it was not more severe than were the heatwave years of ~2012, ~tragic 2003, ~1988-90, ~1980, when Dallas had 42 consecutive days of 100+ Fahrenheit heat, ~tragic 1976, ~the Hurricane Hazel year of 1954, ~searing hot 1934-36, ~the Arctic ice melting years of 1921-22, ~the undertaker overtime year of 1911, ~the grape vine withering year of 1901, etc.   And let us not forgot the heat of 1895-96, when the co2 count was quite low, proving that a rise in co2 is NOT the cause of heatwaves. Additional proof that 2023 was not as bad as the other heatwave years of the past 140 years consists in the fact that you ... your friends ... your family ... your acquaintances ... are still alive.  

Plus, 2023 ever-so-coincidentally fits the 11 Year Sunspot Cycle Theory which is still only in "theory status."  None the less, 2023 was very close to the heatwave year of 2012, eleven years prior.  In addition, 2023 also had record cold in the first half of the year, as well as seemingly miraculous water replenishment and snowpack accumulation in the American West.

The "Iceless Arctic" Prediction ... that goes back to 1988 ... and gets recycled continuously

In review, if this summer were the hottest year in the last 125,000 ... or even 7.5 milllion years ... the Arctic Ocean would have been ice-free at the time of this writing.  

BELOW:   National Snow & Ice Data Ctr / NASA Earth Observatory, as of Aug 11, 2023.

For those of you who are products of the American Public School System, look below and know that you are looking at an official visual report of "a Hell of a lot of ice."  Yet, this year has the twelfth lowest amount of sea ice on top of the Arctic Ocean, since the satellite era began.  This means that ALL late summer sea ice extent volumes were large.  The lowest amount of Arctic ice cover ... in 2012 ... was an area of ice which had a perimeter equal to flying from NYC to Minneapolis to Houston to Miami, and back to New York City.  It was also the size of the subcontinent known as India.  That is a large chunk of land.

Most importantly is that fact that, even if all of the ice on the Arctic Ocean would suddenly turn into water, the sea level rise would be zero . . . just like when the ice cubes in your iced tea completely melt.  No water rises over the top of your glass.

Above:  The Arctic as of August 11, 2023.  Now, the daily July average ...  (actually, the 1981-2010 median) ... of Arctic Ocean ice-melt is 27,000 to 33,606 square miles.  The daily Arctic ice loss for July 2023 was 36,000 square miles.  Now, that's not the End of the World.  Yet, [1] politicians seeking to bring money into their districts, [2] grant-seeking scientists, [3] audible activists, and [4] media personnel hyper-exaggerated this recent 6-months-of-daylight in the Arctic, making it sound like the End of the World.  

In review:  At the end of August 2023, the Arctic Sea Ice Extent was 2.15 million square miles.  That's 19 Arizonas ... or 28 South Dakotas ... or 41 Louisianas ... or even 172 Marylands, when laid side by side, like jigsaw puzzle pieces.       
It's no longer a matter of proving the Michael Mann & Al Gore types wrong.  It's a matter of procuring False Claims Act filings in federal civil actions, as well as grand larceny theft-by-deception indictments in federal criminal actions.  These people have been inciting violence which is now evidenced by the recent "blessings given" by a climate activist to any of today's youths who will commit terrorism in the name of the climate agenda which basically comprises shutting down society . . . shutting down humanity.

And of course, keep in mind that Al Gore NEVER won a Nobel Prize in Physics (science.)  Only the Peace Prize.  Meanwhile, the Nobel Prize that Michael Mann claims to have co-won was also NOT the Nobel Prize in Physics (science.)  And Mann is not a nice Mann.  Peace is not his most viable asset.  Disturbing others tremendously is.  Mann should win the Anti-Peace Prize.  After all, he is inciting congressional financial irresponsibility and violence.  He tries to make people feel desperate and to believe that co2 is actually going to make the world come to an end.  Well, co2 below 150 ppm will result in the extinction of all species ... starting with plant-life.

Plus, it would only be proper to revoke from CNN its FCC license, for lying as a matter of habit.  After all, its newscasts are propaganda pieces.  They are infomercials.  Those "reports" are basically "in kind" donations to certain candidates of a certain political party.  After all, they are free campaign ads, telling everyone how evil the political opponents are, while stating how just and moral are the politicians benefitting by CNN's completely bogus propaganda pieces.

This needs to then be followed by procuring the highest extent of punishment allowed by civilized society, upon con artists engulfed in a racket.  These con artists have gone beyond the Sound Barriers of Obscenity.  They will be coming for your tax money ... your natural gas stove and your natural gas furnace ... and let us not forgot your grocery merchandise in your refrigerator.

The Ballad of Today's Polar Ice

The following was written by an individual whose DNA literally matched that of a Greenland Viking found at an archeological site (in Greenland, of course) ... as well as the DNA of Vikings found at archeological sites in Southern Sweden, Oxford England, and Iceland, not to mention Denmark itself.  Thus, the true existence of the Medieval Warm Period is literally in this author's DNA.  More importantly, the paranoiac hyper-exaggerations about Greenland melting into the pits of doom is a super-annoying insult to his intelligence.

Let's start with an instant thousand words.  For those of you in the American Public School System, know that there used to be an axiom which said, "A picture's worth a thousand words."  In this particular case, the 1,000 words are in the NASA Earth Observatory illustration below which shows that Antarctica is not going through any once-in-a-7.5-million-year meltdown --- or any "plummeting ice levels," either.  This picture shows you that CNN lied to humanity ... as usual.   

The amber perimeter line in the illustration is the median.  That's sort of the average.  Actually, it's the middle number in a list of data numbers.  When it comes to the lowest statistical number in the 5.48 MILLION square mile Antarctic continent --- and its surrounding ocean water --- the "lowest" is not much different than the average ... the usual ... the regular.   

In fact, as of  September 14, 2023, Antarctic Sea Ice Extent amounted to 6.54 MILLION square miles in area.  Now, add Antarctica's land ice of 5.31 million sq mi to Antarctica's sea ice of 6.54, and you have an ice sheet that is 11.85 MILLION SQUARE MILE ice sheet.  Now, the entire Antarctic Circle is 7.7 million sq mi in area.  11.85 minus 7.7 =  4.15.  This means that there is so much ice in Antarctica that 4.15 million square miles of it is located outside of the Antarctic Circle, even though it's attached to the ice within the 7.7 million square mile Antarctic Circle.

Above is a NASA & NSIDC product for public view.  According to the media, 2023 was a disastrous time of melting for Antarctica.  Antarctica was reported as having had it lowest wintertime "sea ice extent" ever known to mankind.  Well, here is your Antarctica, as of September 14, 2023.  The official NASA/NSIDC report is that the Antarctic sea ice extent for Sept 14, 2023 was 6.54 MILLION square miles.  

This means that the amount of continuous ice in the Antarctic Circle & beyond ... minus 2% of ice-free Antarctic desert land ... is 11.8 MILLION square miles.  This is the combined size of Canada, the United States, Mexico, Brazil, and Argentina.   Therefore, there has been NO Antarctic sea ice climate crisis at any time in 2023 or in any other year since the invention of the camera.  

And yes, a very long strand of East Antarctica is also located outside of the Antarctic.  This means that there is also sea ice which exists outside of the Antarctic Circle, all the while being connected to the Antarctic continent.  None the less, concerning Antarctic land, observe:

                               Ice-covered Antarctic terrain = 5,300,000 sq miles (approximately)
                                      Ice-free Antarctic terrain =   110,000 sq miles (approximately)   

Concerning the illustration above, the jagged amber line encircling the Antarctic sea ice extent and all of Antarctica itself, is the "median ice edge."  That's the middle number in a list of statistical ice measurement numbers dating back to 1981.   Technically, it goes from 1981 to 2010.

Concerning this, whenever you see the word, "median" in science or statistics, think "middle number" in a list of numbers --- middle number in a set of numbers.  It's somewhat like the average number.  

The reason why the illustration above is important is because certain "journalists" have recently claimed that Antarctica is in a chaotic crisis stage of "plummeting ice levels."  They stated that Antarctica is undergoing a once in a 7.5 million year event, where Antarctica is losing massive amounts of ice.  They make it sound as if Antarctica is melting all over the place, because of the burning of fossil fuels.  

In fact, one journalist added that there are long stretches of the Antarctic coastline which have no ice, even though it is wintertime there.  This deceives the reader into assuming that ice was formerly in those places, but is now only recently gone.  This deceives the reader into assuming that Antarctica will only have the skeletal remains of sea ice extent in a relatively short time.

The unconscionable omission of the journalists is that they kept hidden from the readers the fact that Antarctica is the driest desert on Earth, and snowfall there is an extreme rarity.  So, two percent of Antarctica has actually been ice-free for a very very very long time.  But of course, media entities such as CNN and the Guardian have to over-sensationalize everything to the point of lying about it.  

The reason why the media portrayed Antarctica as being in an apocalyptic meltdown is because [1] it was recently reported that, in July of 2023, Antarctica had its least amount of July sea ice extent, during any July, since record-keeping began.  [2] And in February of 2023, Antarctica had the lowest summertime sea ice extent.  [3] Then, a year prior, in 2022, Antarctica also had the lowest summertime sea ice extent ... until 2023 came along.  So, CNN had to embellish.  What CNN forgot to mention was that after every Antarctic summer, the sea ice extent is low . . . always low.  Thus, every single year, Antarctica literally performs a 'reset.'  

As you can see in the July 2023 illustration below (as opposed to the August 23rd illustration above), the least amount of Antarctic ice encircling Antarctica ... during any July ... wasn't that much different than the average amount of ice that specifically encircled the Antarctic continent during July 2023.

Throughout each year, any ice decrease in Antarctica was slight.  Any ice increase there was slight.  It all hovers around the same general & approximate equilibrium.  Video theatrics concerning Polar ice is nothing more than a con artist's ploy to absorb inordinately large & undeserved amounts of American taxpayer dollars.  It's all a matter of theft by deception --- theft of the American taxpayer which includes the American working class.  

They act as if to be all so charitable, saving you from heated doom, death, and destruction.  They then go into overdrive, getting you to pay for the money given to other people in your name ... and not given to you directly ... so done under the guise of saving you from a carbon footprint which is supposed exist in an atmosphere that is already 99.9734% carbon-free.  

Needless to say, CNN's corporate song is that Antarctica is now in a chaotic meltdown, because of the burning of fossil fuels.  None the less, the heat of 2022 and 2023 matches the heat of 2011 and 2012, in the Eleven Year Sunspot Cycle Theory.  In sequence, 2000 and 2001 are 11 years prior to 2011 and 2012.  Now, there was a deadly heatwave in the Southern states of America in the Year 2000.  In 2001, the northeast of the United States got hit with a deadly heatwave.  I continued the trend in other posts, admitting that this is still only a theory, but one backed-up by some measure of evidence.

Even at that, I showed in detail how the mainstream media lied and exaggerated the temperatures of the Summer of 2023.  This includes the extremely bogus 101F ocean water claim, when the truth is that the water in focus was Florida Everglade run-off water, next to the Hwy 1 Bridge which leads to Key Largo.

I also showed that the mainstream media LIED in 2022, when it claimed that, on July 19 2022, the London Fire Brigade had the most "incidents" in its history, since WWII.  I did this by posting the OFFICIAL London Fire Brigade July 19, 2022 Incidents Report.  On that day, the London Fire Brigade had no more than ten incidents more than the daily average of incidents for the Year of 2022.  And of course, numerous days in many prior decades had far more daily incidents than did July 19, 2022.

I uncovered lie after lie after statistical lie.  One more thing.  I work alone.  Michael Mann tried to get Climate Hysteria Dissenters criminally indicted under the RICO Act.  He wanted dissenters who consult with each other to be criminalized.  Basically, he wants dissenters to be left isolated.  Well, you can amass a lot of information while isolated and working alone.

Welcome to the Antarctic Box Score (the stats)

Now, the official science is that 98% of Antarctica is covered in ice.  Yet, the 2% of Antarctica which is NEVER covered in ice comprises 110,000 square miles of Antarctic terrain.  That is the same area as is the state of Nevada, and such iceless Antarctic terrain is predominately expanses of barren rock which look like the surfaces of another planet.   This is why a dishonest journalist can claim that long stretches of Antarctica are without ice, all the while deceiving people into thinking that all of Antarctica is having a meltdown, due to the burning of fossil fuels.  

The truth is that the barren rock lands of Antarctica were caused by convection & high pressure air coming from the Tropopause.  It's called, the Polar Cell.  Likewise, there is the Hadley Cell, at 30 degrees parallel, in both hemispheres.

Whereas the iceless parts of Antarctica combined is the size of Nevada, the ice-covered parts of the same Antarctica are collectively is the size of 20 Texases or 33 Californias . . . or even 82 Floridas.  When it comes to natural iceless terrain in Antarctica ... not caused by the burning of fossil fuels ... it's a matter of comparing one Nevada to 82 Floridas.  Or it's like comparing one Nevada to 48 Nevadas.

As was previously reported, when mid-August 2023 came, the Antarctic sea ice extent exceeded the size of the Antarctic continent to the tune of 5.84 million sq miles.   And this "low low low" 2023 sea ice extent, as of mid-August, was SEVEN TIMES LARGER then all of the area of Greenland.  Greenland is 836,000 sq mi.

Antarctic Coastline: 11,164 miles in length

Then comes the coastline length of Antarctica which happens to be 11,164 miles ... or 17,968 kilometers.  Now, 2% of 11,164 miles is 223 miles.  Thus, if you have 223 miles of ice-free Antarctic coastline, you also have 10,940 miles of coastline where the ice cover extends hundreds of miles into the ocean.  Thus, it's 223 vs 10,940.  If you want to round-off the numbers, then it's a matter of 10,800 miles vs 300 miles ... or even 10,500 miles vs 500 miles.   Yet, CNN claims that Antarctica is in the dire straits of a meltdown apocalypse.  Needless to say, it most certainly is NOT.  It's just that CNN is a harassing annoyance upon humanity.

Below:  Observe the amount of ice is surrounding 10,800+ miles of the Antarctic coastline.  Meanwhile 200-300 miles of ice-free coastline aligns the Palmer Peninsula and Wilkes Land, as well as Victoria Land & Ross Island (near McMurdo Station).  Thus, thousands and thousands of miles of Antarctic coastline was engulfed in massive widths of sea ice, while CNN claimed there to be an apocalyptic meltdown there.   

Now for the Arctic Ocean, aka the North Pole, as is illustrated below.  The Arctic Ocean was simply described as having had its twelfth lowest July sea ice extent on record.  Okay, but look at the illustration below and see how much sea ice extent that happens to be.  That's 3.16 million square miles of sea ice.  That's the size of 48 Floridas ... or 12 Texases . . . or even 69 Pennsylvanias.  

Even at the Arctic Ocean's lowest sea ice extent (in 2012), the area of sea ice there was the size of 28 Pennsylvanias.  A way of fathoming the massive size of even the smallest square acreage of Arctic sea ice extent is to drive from Miami to Baltimore to Minneapolis to Houston and back to Miami.  At it's smallest, Arctic sea ice was 36% the size of the United States ... slightly largest in area than India ... and 5 times larger than Texas.  

In wintertime, at it's lowest maximum measurement, Arctic sea ice area was the size of 20 Texases.  At its highest maximum, Arctic sea ice area was the size of 22 Texases.  So, you need to understand that there is not much of a difference between highest and lowest in the Arctic.  You also need to understand that climate doomsayers are con artists looking for massive amounts of federal funding ... or NGO grants.  Such a thing is known as Theft by Deception, and there does exist something known as the False Claims Act.
Above:  Now, this is at the end of July.  That's an area of  3.16 MILLION square miles of sea ice.  The Arctic Ocean's surface is 5.4 MILLION square miles in area.  Thus, 58% of the Arctic Ocean was still covered by ice when August 2023 commenced.
Let it be repeated from a previous post:  Before all else, there's one simple observation which proves that 2023 did NOT come close to having the hottest summer in the past 7.5 million years or 125,000 years or even 87 years. The observation consists in the fact that the Arctic Ocean is not anywhere near ice-free, and it's already the 25th of August.  Life is simple and con artists overlook the simplest of things.  So too do the ones who get conned by the con artists. 

There is still a massive amount of ice in the Arctic, as is the case every year, even in its lowest year.  It's simply that a perpetual climate doomsday narrative is being propagated by [1] money-seeking activists, [2]  media managers in search of high ratings, and [3] scientists who want into their personal portfolios some of that recently passed $370 BILLION Congressional "climate appropriations" money.  That is what they really mean when they say they are going green.

This is what activists, scientists, and network news producers mean when they say they are "going green."  After all, Al Gore went green 250 million times, so far.

Unless the I.R.A. (the inappropriately named, Inflation Reduction Act) gets repealed ... rescinded ... amended ... abrogated ... abolished ... scientists will spend the next ten years lying about the climate, creating hyper-exaggerations in the process thereof.  They will do so, with the intention of getting for themselves and/or their universities and/or their networks some of that climate money.  It's elementary, Watson.  If the scientists say that the atmosphere is fine and well balanced, then they get no grant money.  If they say that the atmosphere is in a state of crisis, then they get money that rivals the military industrial complex's financial rates of return.

The Dust Bowl Observation

There is another blatant observation which shows that 2023 was not the hottest summer in even the past 87 years.  There were not the dust storms of the 1930s anywhere in America in 2023.  The daily damage done to farmers in 1936, alone, when measured by today's dollars, eventually reached an equivalency of  $530 MILLION per day.  At the time, the accountants surmised that $25 million per day of property was being lost to dust storms, drought, and searing heat.  The Year 1936 was the End of Many Worlds.  

One more reminder:  CNN was dead set on pushing the Iraqi Weapons of Mass Destruction Hoax.  CNN turned out to be completely wrong.  CNN was also instrumental on pushing other hoaxes, annihilating its credibility amongst reasonably minded people.  When it comes to CNN's Climate Hysteria, do the math when calculating the probability that it's journalists are being honest.  

Let us review the July sea ice reports:

Now think.   El Nino arrived on June 8th.  This means that the Pacific Ocean got an extra dose of heat from a "westerly source."  In the illustration below, take note that the Atlantic side of the Arctic is as ice-packed as ever, concerning the 1981-2010 "median ice edge."  The Pacific side got the expected effects of El Nino, to the point where the coveted Northwest passage is open for sailors.  Even at that, there is still a massive amount of ice on and in the Arctic Ocean.   The NASA & NSIDC illustration below is marked as August 28, 2023.

ABOVE:  During this El Nino Summer, there still remains ice all the way up to Cape Morris Jesup, in Greenland. The ice extends from Northern Greenland, all the way past the Severnaya Zemlya Archipelago, which happens to be 25 miles away from the coast of Central Siberia.  The distance between the North Pole and Severnaya Z is 725 miles.  The distance between Cape Morris Jesup and the North Pole is 440 miles.  Thus, there exists a 1,165+ mile stretch of Arctic Ice, as of late August 2023.  This is because 2023 did NOT have the hottest Summer in the past 125,000 years ... or even in the past 87 years.  None the less, don't be surprised if the Arctic sea ice extent of 2023 ends up 3rd to 6th lowest, in the satellite era.

The lesson here is that even the lowest amount of Arctic sea ice minimum is absolutely massive.  In fact, the 2012 sea ice extent had an area slightly larger than that of the subcontinent of India.  For the record, India is the 7th largest country in the world, and it's much bigger than Greenland.

Moreover, NASA reported that the Summertime Arctic ice-loss rate was around average until the beginning of August.  Then ice-loss accelerated.  Now, if co2 were the cause of Arctic ice loss, then the summertime ice loss would have occurred in a uniform manner, each month.  This is because the atmospheric co2 level did NOT suddenly ratchet upward in August.  In fact, when the Earth approaches Northern Hemispheric harvest season, co2 levels slightly drop.  Yet, as co2 levels were slightly dropping, Arctic sea ice loss increased.

Ironically, science recently found that, in the past 2,000 years, eras of slight warming coincided with Greenland ice cap growth.  We start with the following research field scientist's quote:

"Because we're collecting a climate record from the coast, we're able to document for the first time that there were these large shifts in temperature, snowfall and melt over the last 2,000 years, showing much more variability than is observed in records from the interior of Greenland."  

The lesson here is that co2 is NOT the driver of Planet Earth's atmosphere.  The indication here is that decadal ocean oscillations are the determinant of climate ... or at the least, they are the determinant of the surface temperature of the area near the oscillations.  And of course, each decadal oscillation is of a massive size.  

The "Global Boiling" Propagandists' diversionary tactic

At the surface of every ocean are gyres.  Each ocean gyre is massive, and each ocean gyre is far far far more important than the unraveled-bowtie-looking current often highlighted by Climate Hysteria Activists.  The current obsessively presented in Climate Hysteria propaganda is called, the Thermohaline Circulation.  The Climate Change People often put it in neon lights without ever mentioning that it actually exists at the bottom of the oceans and that you walk faster than it moves.  In fact, it used to be called [1] the Deep Circulation.  At other times, it was called [2] the Abyssal Circulation.  And yes, it IS synonymous with 'abysmal.'

The Global Warming People accentuate the sea floor circulation, to scare an under-educated public about unsalted fresh water pouring into the salty oceans.  They keep saying that very soon all of the fresh water run-off from Greenland will reduce the Atlantic Ocean's salinity so much so that the warm Gulf Stream will stop flowing north, and England will turn into Siberia.  

The great falsehood here is the fact that dozens of major fresh-water rivers throughout Planet Earth pour into the salty oceans of the Earth every second of every minute of every day.  This is where the delta, the estuary, the lagoon, the slough, and the sound come into play.  Such fresh water rivers flowing into salty ocean water include:

[1] the Columbia,  [2] the Snake,  [3] the Stikine (of British Columbia),  [4] the Sacramento,  [5] the Mississippi,   [6] the Hudson,  [7] the Connecticut,  [8] the Amazon,  [9] the Orinoco,  [10]  the Yenisei,  [11] the Lena (of Siberia),  [12] the Mekong,  [13] the Mackenzie,  [14] the Congo,  [15] the Niger,  [16] the Magdalena,  [17] the Yukon,  [18] the Kapuas (of Borneo),  [19] the Essequibo (of Guyana),  [20] the Ogowe (of Gabon),  [21] the Hong,  [22] the Kolyma (of Siberia),  [23] the Atrato (of Columbia),  [24] the Zambezi,  [25] the Tabasco (in Mexico),  [26] the Rajang (of Malaysia),  [27] the Fraser,  [28] the Khatanga, [29] the Pulau,  [30] the Sao Francisco (Brazil),  and the list goes on.  

Due to the fact that the Climate Hysteria Activists bark like dogs at the seasonal ice melt of Greenland, while keeping entirely silent when it comes to dozens of large fresh water rivers emptying-out into oceans, they have a lot of  'splaining to do, Lucy.

And concerning the Amazon River, to make a long story short, a 2017 paper surmised that the climates of ages past would have been warmer without Amazon river water running off into the Atlantic Ocean.  This is beyond the scope and allotted space of this particular discourse.

Mention of the ocean gyres isn't in the vocabulary of climate activists.  And of course, they are blaming the ice-free coastline of southern Greenland on CO2 and even other greenhouse gases which only exist in the atmosphere in very small trace amounts.  The official United States' own NASA explained the ice-free borders of Greenland in a much different way:

"The surface ocean current brings new water to this region from the South Atlantic via the Gulf Stream and the water returns to the South Atlantic via the North Atlantic Deep Water current. The continual influx of warm water into the North Atlantic polar ocean keeps the regions around Iceland and southern Greenland mostly free of sea ice year round."  

The lesson is that an ice-free January in southern Greenland is NOT due to co2 levels or the burning of fossil fuels.  In fact, southern Greenland is outside of the Arctic Circle.  None the less, as recently as in 2022, honest-enough scientists surmised that it was the ocean waters themselves that were causing the ice-melt of the southern Greenland coastlines. 

In conclusion, the proximate driver of the Earth's climate is either decadal ocean oscillation or the behavior of the Sun.  Now, when it comes to the ultimate driver of the Earth's atmosphere, NASA officially stated that "the Sun is the driver of the Earth's climate."  But, such a thing effects air pressure systems.  This, in turn, translates into Pressure Gradient Forcing driving the climate ... but driving the climate in conjunction with none other than the Coriolis Effect AND the tilt of the Earth, otherwise known as "the obliquity of the Earth." 

The bottom line is that Al Gore gave humanity the proverbial red herring when he obsessed his 2006 movie with life-giving co2, making it the villain of his thoroughly asinine movie, and by making it the great enemy of mankind.  Without co2 we all die.

Now, concerning the Southern Hemisphere

The 2% of ice-free land on a polar continent 5.5 million square miles in size can deceptively make the 2% look like a pandemic of ice loss.  There is no Antarctic coastline not covered by massive amounts of ice, except for the tip of the Palmer Peninsula at the Drake Passage, Wilkes Land, Victoria Land, and the Ross Island near the McMurdo station.

That Antarctic peninsula tip is outside of the Polar Circle, to the tune of 1,840 miles away from the South Pole.  It's only 540 to 600 miles away from the southern tip of Chile, where one finds Cape Horn.  Other than that peninsula tip, Antarctica, during winter, is encased in massive quantities of ice.

So, why is the peninsula tip not submerged in ice?  ANS:  The Drake Passage's effect on the extremely massive Antarctic Circumpolar Current (the ACC).  It causes eddies to flow toward Antarctica, thereby providing a South Pole wintertime rarity, called warmth, to the peninsula's tip.   Eddies are small vortices ... whirlpools ... and they ever so coincidentally exist in two lanes, during El Nino, with the Equatorial current in the middle of the two eddy lanes.  During El Nino they sort of work like highway guardrails.  Actually, the work sort of like train tracks.

The ACC is the strongest current on Earth, and it does NOT merely occupy a layer of the Southern Ocean near Antarctica.  It encompasses all of the Southern Ocean near there, from the surface to the bottom.   It transports approximately 225 MILLION cubic yards of ocean water per second.  It causes a circular current that keeps the cold within the Antarctic continent.  When a ship sails outside of that ocean water circle, the ocean's heat-increase is suddenly noticeable.  It's not a gradual effect.  It's kind of like the St. Lawrence River's point where predominate salt water becomes predominate fresh water.

Every summer, the Antarctic sea ice extent recedes almost to the continent's shoreline ... except where there are ice shelves.  NOAA long since observed that approximately 15% of Antarctic wintertime sea ice remains in tact at the end of the Antarctic summer.  But, the most important thing to note is that there is no noticeable sea level rise after the end of Antarctic summertime, despite the disappearance of sea ice there.  In as much, the summertime ice loss of Antarctica is NOT a once in a 7.5 million year event.  It's a once in every one year event, year after year.

NASA attributed at least "some" of this effect to the gradual lessening of albedo in the Southern Ocean.  The lesser the sea ice, the more the surface water, and the lesser the albedo.

Albedo is the amount of the sun's energy that reflects back into space.  Now, snow-covered ice has much more albedo than does ice alone.  That is to say, more of the Sun's energy bounces back into space after hitting snow covered ice than hitting uncovered ice.  And of course, Antarctica is a desert.  Snowfall there is a rarity.  Each Pole is a high pressure convection zone, thereby translating into desert.  This is the same as both 30th parallel convection zones, north and south.  The 30th Parallel, north and south, is/are where the major deserts of Planet Earth are located.

None the less, when sunlight hits ice, snow, etc, most of the sunlight reflects back into outer-space.  When it hits water, most of it does not bounce back into space.  In fact, water, sand, grass, leaves, and dirt have very low "albedo values."  Furthermore, asphalt has the lowest albedo, meaning that it absorbs solar radiant heat the most.  Thus, when you are in the city, it's NOT co2 that's causing the "urban heat island effect."  It's asphalt.   

When it comes to water, there are exceptions in the "albedo value," where the majority of sunlight reflects back into space upon hitting certain types of water.  This depends on the Sun's angle.  The lower the angle, the higher the albedo.  

There is much more to include which can be considered "beyond the scope" of this discourse.  Explaining it all would take three posts, and there would still be decisive questions left to be answered about Antarctica and the Southern Ocean.  The bottom line is that atmospheric science & oceanography are very intricate sciences, and you cannot be a stereotypical corporate television airhead and reduce every weather condition on Planet Earth to "the burning of fossil fuels" and "co2" ... or even "greenhouse gases." 

Concerning the volume of greenhouse gases throughout the Earth's atmosphere, 90% of them is WATER VAPOR.  Needless to say, you cannot sequester the oceans and their 352 quintillion gallons of water.   You cannot ban water.  Where are you gonna hide it?

The other way in which ice can literally disappear

As a quick note, ice loss can also occur via "sublimation," where ice turns into vapor without first turning into a liquid called water.  Fast winds require this.  So, how were the Rossby waves/winds this Summer?  Some of us don't have the luxury of time to look into every type of file and report,  including updates on Rossby wave action.  None the less, the Year 2023 is NOT NOT NOT anywhere close to becoming the first ice-free August and/or September in the Arctic Ocean since who-knows-when.  

Then comes the Antarctic Ice Gains Hidden by the Mainstream Media

Between 2009 and 2019, East Antarctica had 661 gigatons of ice GAIN.  See:

It's West Antarctica where ice is receding, and ironically the vast majority of Antarctica's subglacial volcanoes are in West Antarctica, positioned like a "string of fire."  

Now, before 2017, it was taught that 91 subglacial volcanoes sit in Antarctica.  After 2017, the conjecture was that 138 volcanos in all are in Antarctica.  Thus, there are 7 to 11  dozen volcanos on Antarctica's continent.  

And finally, there were 34 ice shelves studied, out of Antarctica's 48 major ones.  Eighteen of those ice shelves were found to be retreating (receding.)   Sixteen of them were found to be growing.  Two of them are the largest ones on Antarctica.  One of them is the size of Spain, and the other one is slightly bigger than Montana.  They are the Ross Ice Shelf and the Filchner-Ronne Ice Shelf.

The decisive question is how much of this maximum Antarctic ice extent is the "least"?  The answer is 5.84 million square miles as of mid-August 2023, with approximately four weeks of Wintertime ice accumulation remaining.  

Now, the record high is 7.78 million sq miles which occurred in September of 2015.  More importantly, as recently as two years ago, the Antarctic maximum sea ice extent was 7.12 million sq mi.  Last year, the maximum extent was 7.02 million sq mi.  Thus, there is NO ongoing trend of disastrous ice decline in Antarctica.  In fact, the US government's Boulder Colorado crew stated, "In the past decade, the September winter maximum has been extremely variable, hitting record and near-record highs, as well as near-record lows."  

The bottom line is that the Antarctic continent remains surrounded by an overly massive amount of sea ice, during winter.  The equally important bottom line is that today's journalists, especially those who work for Bill-Gates-funded media outlets, are unconscionable liars who apparently don't care about the disgraceful legacy that they will leave behind them.  

Even though there is presently a stranglehold on the media outlets by outright liars, it won't always be that way.  The truth will eventually come forth, in a number of topics that are being misrepresented to the public, by CNN and similar unconscionable entities.  The con game will be out in the open for everyone to see, years, decades and even centuries from now.  The arrogant of today will be forever humbled.

Below:  Official stuff.  This IS a product of NASA, and it shows no end-of-the-world type of ice loss, even if 2023 comes to be the year with the least Antarctic maximum sea ice extent or the least sea ice concentration in known history.  When it comes to Antarctica, even the least is an astoundingly massive amount.
