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.  

https://www.bluemarblealbum.com/2023/07/true-american-coastal-water-temps.html

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.  

https://www.bluemarblealbum.com/2023/06/July2022%20greater%20london%20fire%20stats.html

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:

https://www.bluemarblealbum.com/2023/08/661-gigaton-ice-gain.html

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.

The most coral cover in 36 years ... in two-thirds of the Great Barrier Reef

(The Southern sector became the buffet table of lots of hungry crown-of-thorn starfish.)

A few dozen news releases in the Summer of 2022 reported that two of the three sectors of the Great Barrier Reef had the most coral cover in it in 36 years.  This disproves doomsayer predictions about the reef being irreparably consigned to the extinction chapter of history books.  That reef is regenerating itself.

Clown Fish near Coral Reef, by Tom Fisk

And then comes the Climate Nazi nearest to a video camera, refusing to allow open debate, all the while telling us that the world will end "in 12 years" (from the Year 2019) if we don't make obsolete every gasoline powered vehicle.  Well, the truth is that the climate doomsayers' individual worlds ... and your world ... as well as the world of everyone you know ... will come to an end long before the world of the Great Barrier Reef does.  In fact, your world and my world will come to an end long before the arrival of THE epic & apocalyptic End of the World. 

None the less, all throughout history, there have been tragic events that served as dress rehearsals for THE apocalyptic End of the World. These events transpired when co2 levels were 98, 118, and 138 parts per million LESS than they are today.  So, when you think about it, the world has been repeatedly coming to an end, over and over and over again, century after century after century.  Scientific Newsflash:  Planet Earth is a Phoenix Bird.

Sky News Australia Report on Coral Reef Restoration 

Phys.org news: Most Coral Reef Cover in 36 Years 

The more knowledgeable Gili Islands news report on reef 

Australian Institute of Marine Science

At this point, keep in mind that the commercial media repeatedly predicted the demise of the 1,429 mile-long Great Barrier Reef of Northern Australia.  Its newscasters predicted equal doom for the other coral reefs, as well.  Now, when it comes to Australia, Dr Michael "Hockey Stick" Mann, assigned doom to the entire continent of Australia, in his vague, inarticulate, and noncommittal way, in January of 2020:

It is conceivable that much of Australia simply becomes too hot and dry for human habitation."   ...   “In that case, yes, unfortunately we could well see Australians join the ranks of the world’s climate refugees.“

This statement was made by Mann in Australia TWO MONTHS after Australia had its WETTEST November on record.  So, it's correct to say that Mann was wrong.  But it's more correct to say that Mann was so vague that he didn't say anything.  It's even more correct to state that Mann is an insufferable jackass, in light of the fact that Northern Australia gets yearly Monsoons.

Concerning Mann playing the role of Grim Reaper, in insinuating that Australia was in line to be a recipient of extinction, it was in 2021 when Australia enjoyed its record high wheat crop harvest.  In 2022, Australia underwent record "cold persistence," meaning that it had its longest duration of cold spells.  Such a thing is perceived by the reasonable registered voter as the opposite of  "dry & uninhabitable" Global Warming.   

This is yet another case which proves that Michael Mann doesn't think when he talks.  He simply announces disturbing insinuations of climate doom, all the while claiming that he cries for the children, despite the fact that he imposed suffering on an elderly Air Force veteran and doctorate holder who was and is advancing in years.  That was equivalent to mugging a senior citizen on the streets.  Mann is a pathetic communicator.   

More on Mann is elsewhere.  For now, it suffices for you to know that Michael Mann was NEVER the winner or co-winner of any type of Nobel Prize, ever.  The guy is a liar in an era where it appears that he who lies the most gets the most air time ... and the most money.

As an added note, Australia is almost the size of the United States.  It's a huge continent.

Yellow Fish Swimming Beside the Coral Reef, by Kevin C. Charpentier

The commercial media spent the Summer of 2022 ranting about cyclical droughts, as if such things never happened before.  It also ranted on one heat anomaly wave in Antarctica that went fast and was rare.  Those weather events were "Gotcha Moments" for people who want you to be stranded at the bus stop and in parking lots ... as they dismantle all common means of transportation, in the name of reducing co2, so that we can all go green.  They fail to realize that it takes co2 to make the greenery.

The media also reported on Lake Mead without mentioning that the population which uses its water has significantly increased, and that Lake Mead started filling-up again ... and that river water meant for Mead is sometimes diverted to the other man-made lakes in the US Southwest and even Mexico, including Lake Powell.  

Well, in August of 2022, CNN did report on the finding that the northern and central sector of the Great Barrier Reef had more coral in it than it has had in the past 36 years.  So, the Australian end of the world has been postponed.  

Coral comprises 1/4 of all marine life in the ocean.  So, the Michael Manns of this world have to go elsewhere, to cry-out that the sky is falling.  Well, Mann can run around and amplify that the southern sector of the reef is decreasing in cover, while hiding the fact that the other two sectors of the reef presently have the most reef cover in 36 years.  That's how the Climate Crisis propaganda works.  It works by having people like Michael Mann suppress the most important and pivotal facts on an issue; to hide a lot of evidence.  After all, Mann did hide the decline.  Guess what other truths Mann hid.

Great Barrier Reef South

Concerning the Southern portion of the reef, it was gaining coral in 2021.  Then came an infestation of hungry crown-of-thorn starfish who reportedly find the coral to be their delicacy of choice.  So, it was starfish, and NOT CO2, eating the Southern region of the coral reef.

Now, this coral cover increase is a huge issue, in light of all the doom-saying about the reef that transpired ... and in light of what was defined as the cause of coral bleaching and the eventual loss of all coral.  Concerning the alleged cause, the personnel paid through political dollars ... such as congressional or parliamentary funding ... claim that "global warming due to the burning of fossil fuels" causes it.  

Actually, those people were referring to "alleged" increased water temperatures as the cause of the bleaching of coral and the disappearance of coral.   This brings us to the obvious observation which gives cause to change the websites that claim warming waters causes the loss of coral reefs.  The observation is simple:

The "warming waters" are still there.  Yet, coral is regenerating.  Therefore, warming water per se is obviously not the cause of coral bleaching and/or coral loss.  It's not the water temperature per se that matters.  It's the behavior of water that matters, in relation to the much more unstable atmosphere above, with its changes in air pressure which is actually predictable per season.

A heat stress event is different than a relatively static water temperature which depends on the season, especially in mid-latitudes and upper-latitudes.  Now, warmer waters of the Tropical Latitudes can enrich and reinforce a low pressure system to the point of having it become headline news, in the form of a cyclone and even a hurricane.  But, any low pressure system comes from the air ... from the atmosphere, often created above land, as is often observed during the annual Cape Verdi Hurricane Season.  That yearly season was well known to the French Empire even before the birth of Napoleon Bonaparte ... and before the birth of the combustible engine.

The general rule is that ======> Planet Earth and its oceans are designed to proliferate the TRANSFER OF HEAT; and not to hoard heat.

The reality is that the oceans are NOT vaults of co2-captured-heat or any other kind of heat coming from the atmosphere.  The oceans are liquid spring boards that create LATENT HEAT that turns into a vapor, while simultaneously rising out of the oceans, getting caught in a wind, and then traveling to the colder latitudes of Planet Earth, thereby accomplishing its mission of Heat Transfer.   Latent Heat involves the RELEASE of heat ... not the absorption of it.   Obama was such a liar.  YOu remember him, perhaps; President Goldman-Sachs Obama, the Drone Strike President who owns a mansion at the Atlantic Coastline, within walking distance of the shoreline, three feet above sea level.

Remember, the atmosphere is always trying to achieve equilibrium, and that is what often causes turbulence and epic weather events to occur.  The attempt to balance-out the Earth's weather conditions, counter-intuitively enough, caused epics weather events.

I repeatedly stated that the vast majority of ocean water is 39 degrees Fahrenheit, all the way to the bottom, where an occasional volcano exists under the massive weight of a massive water basin.  Furthermore, the majority of the ocean is dark.  This is known as the APHOTIC ZONE.  

The depth of the Aphotic Zone in the Pacific, Indian, and Atlantic Oceans is 9,000+ feet.  The depth of the Southern Ocean's Aphotic Zone is 7,400 feet.  And finally, the depth of the Arctic Ocean's Aphotic Zone is 653 feet.  None of that part of the oceans is hoarding any increasing atmospheric heat, and that happens to be a massive amount of cubic area.  The oceans are not big tea pots.  They are only able to absorb and transport throughout its water basins the heat that comes from the Earth's mantle, via sliding tectonic plates.  

Incidentally, recent scientific discoveries concluded that the heat which ended the Major Ice Age, aka the last Glacial Maximum, came from the bottom of the ocean and eventually made its way into the Earth's Atmosphere.  The length of time that it took for this allocation of heat to occur was said ... by the research crew ... to have taken 1,300 years.

In summation, any heat stress endured by coral would be due to ocean water releasing calories during the creation of Latent Heat. Now, such a thing can be habitual.  But, do not think of the existence of a permanent & static temperature (sensible heat) rise permeating through any ocean below the surface level thereof.  Do not think of oceans as storing co2-captured heat in any stiff & static fashion. We are dealing with dynamics, and not statics in this science.  Dynamics deal with staging . . .with changing states ... phases.

Once vaporization has occurred, the temperature of the vaporized substance does NOT increase, even if heat continues to be applied.  So, this will NOT result in a major heat increase at the oceans' surfaces.  The claim that the oceans are warming has shown itself to be nothing more than a predictable con game played by those caught in the middle of the 1999-2016 Global Warming Pause.

The real bottom line is that CO2 did not eat up the Great Barrier Reef ... it did not boil the reef ... and it did not trigger hurricanes/typhoons that reek havoc on coral reefs.  After all, the law of Pressure Gradient Forcing shows that warm periods have less air turbulence, and therefore create less low pressure systems that turn into things called hurricanes. 

The hue of the coldest January in 40 years, by Patrick Anthony Pontillo

All in all, other things trigger hurricanes ... not the molecular compound which inhabits less than 1/2 of 1% of the Earth's Atmosphere and which has a night-light's radiative forcing of 3.7 watts per meter squared.  CO2 does NOT drive the other 99.95% of Planet Earth's atmosphere.  

Now, if you insist that greenhouse gases trigger turbulent weather, then you must concede that the only greenhouse gas that has any power do to such a thing is WATER VAPOR only.   CO2 is NOT the Big Bad Wolf.  It's Plant Nectar ... plant food ... plant fertilizer.  CO2 is Pygmalion giving life to a sculpture, on a molecular scale.

Neither atmospheric science nor oceanography is as simplex as American politicians make the two sciences out to be.  American politicians live by the assumption that the average American voter is a dimwit, and even an idiot who can't comprehend anything more than a ten second sound byte.

Also concerning the Great Barrier Reef ... and coral in general:  There is marine life which sees coral as a salad ... as dinner.  It's NOT co2 eating it up.  It's flatworms, starfish, and small red crustaceans doing so.   Therefore, if you want to be a good Climate Nazi, you have to kill all of the starfish and small red crustaceans.  Sieg Heil, baby.

Bleaching

When a reef turns white, it's because a bacteria formerly within it is no longer there.  It's known as zooxanthellae, and the coral is said to expel (or consume) the tan zooxanthellae.  Sometimes there is a colored form of bleaching also, as in the blue and light pink variety.  Some type of stress event is said to trigger the expelling thereof.  A hurricane/typhoon is one such stress event.

None the less, the most important issue is that, if American scientists want to get payed, they have to jump through a political operative's hoop, and cry out that the "burning of fossil fuels" and co2 are causing the Earth to warm to the point of an extinction event.  Perhaps they do realize how ridiculously stupid they sound.  If they do, then they perhaps think that you're too stupid to notice it.  However, there is a difference between a common citizen being stupid and one being deprived of information.

And of course, Michael Mann is the con artist who very falsely claimed that he was a Nobel Prize Laureate.  He also denies the past existence of the Medieval Warm Period (800 - 1300 AD) and the heavily documented Mini Ice Age (1300 - 1840 AD).  He stated that the world's climate was stable and mild throughout the past 1,000 years.  Thus, he denies the Great Southwest American Drought that started in 1279 or so.  

He also denies the dreaded 1313 drought, the Great FAMINE of 1315 - 1317,  the Drought of 1417 that shrunk the Elbe River, the Tudor Drought of 1540-41, the drought of 1616 and a number of other ones which occurred long before the invention of the gasoline engine and the establishment of the coal delivery truck route.  Mann, Climate Nazi that he is, also denies the documented existence of numerous cold weather events that were of the crisis stage caliber, during the Mini Ice Age of 1300 to 1840.  

Mann failed to realize that the historic chronicles of the past, along with thousands of newspaper reports of decades and centuries past, in addition to magazine articles of the same past constitute the TRUE CLIMATE RECORD, along with newly analyzed proxy evidence which gained new discoveries.  Michael Mann's assertions do NOT match the true Climate Record.   Period.

January 9, 2024

But, in 2022, Australia DID have a "brutal cold snap" & record cold.

Eastern Australia:  Sent by a close Aussie friend while she was "on holiday."

Perhaps you heard a certain interview where it was alleged, with confident theatrics, that Australia went through record heat in 2022 so much so that its survival is threatened ... and even its Great Barrier Reef is diminishing irreparably, to the point of skeletal remains.  Well, it would really help for interviewers to keep current on the news and on empirical science reports, before their end-of-the-world climate interviews.  

But of course, the reasonable person assumes that such interviews are orchestrated propaganda ploys ... done for the purposes of pushing for the "carbon tax", "carbon credit" sales, NGO funding to the U.N., Congressional funding to scientists and the U.N., and participation with whoever wants to ride the modern-day gravy train.   In as much, here's the response to the claim that Australia is presently in a state of climate doom:

See this video for starters:  7News Australia: "Brutal Cold Snap"

Australians shivered in 2022, in certain places, including Queensland.  

See the report of temps 8C to 12C below avg:  July 2022 record cold in Queensland

At this point, remember that Australia is the size of the United States, and it even has ski resorts.  Ironically, one resort that had reconstruction done on it was unable to finish two important elements of construction, due to too much snow in 2022, which impeded the construction crews from finishing the project.  

In fact, it was the Year 2022 when the official report came out, stating that the Great Barrier Reef had its most widespread coral cover in 36 years.  Such a thing was omitted in the unconscionable interview.  And such a thing sounds like the regeneration of Australia, and NOT the end-of-the-world for Australia.

See Great Barrier Reef Reports: Great Barrier Reef Reports Record Growth Levels ... 2022.

                                                  Report: Highest coral cover in 36 years.

                                             "Great news for Great Barrier Reef."

                                          "Continued coral recovery leads to 36 year highs" 

This is more proof that there certainly was cold temperatures on Planet Earth, in June & July of 2022; and that Australia isn't on its final stand.  The American Propaganda Outlets hyper-exaggerated a Northern Hemispheric Summer which was experienced multiple times before, as in the years 2012, 2003 (with tragedy in France), 1988, 1976 (with tragedy in France), 1954, 1936, 1935, 1934, 1922, 1921, 1910, 1896, 1878, and 1871, as well as the years of drought engraved on Elbe River hunger stones.  The dates of drought date back to 1417.   

To this list of similar weather conditions being experienced multiple times before, add the fact that the very costly American Civil War was fought during a long-term drought.  That drought came shortly after the end of the 550 year-long Little Ice Age (approximately 1300-1850) 

Also include the Great Chicago Heatwave of 1995.  More people died in that heatwave than in the Chicago Fire.  (500 deaths vs 300 deaths.)  The CO2 level at the time was 359.7 ppm; approximately 56 ppm LOWER than today.    None the less, the Australia which has been pictured as "on fire" actually does have ski resorts.

Observe further:  Large snowfall stops construction work on Aussie ski resort

In fact, I personally had a specific phone call with an Australian woman this year, in 2022, where she asked for tips on keeping herself warm in her house at night, due to the exceptionally cold winter, in her part of Australia.  All in all, in June of 2022, the whole world was NOT on fire as advertised . . . definitely not in Victoria, Queensland, Tasmania, etc.   

See also: Australia 7News: Bitterly cold start to winter in Victoria

Just because someone says something during a mainstream media interview, it doesn't make it the truth.  You must test for cracks whatever an interviewed person states.  There are rigged interviews out there.  They are political liars and lying politicians.  And falsehoods don't become the truth IF you believe them.  It simply becomes a matter of you believing in lies.

Another 2022 report:  9News Australia, May 28: Major cold weather system hits parts of Australia

Consider this philosophy:  On a spherical Planet that has [1] seas of whatever liquid, and [2] solid landmasses of whatever material, as well as [3] overhead clouds of variable behavior, along with [4] a star's light that reaches the planet, the following should apply:

One man's flood is another man's drought.  One man's heatwave is another man's deep freeze.  One man's dry season is another man's Monsoon season.  Etc.

The true reason for weather events exists in the fact that there exists constant atmospheric turbulence between the Earth's air masses, as well as their gradual degrees of air pressure difference all the way down to the surface of the Earth.  

This is also this case, in relation to the fact that the surface of the Earth varies from ~large gyrating liquid basins called oceans to ~running streams called rivers to ~low ground to ~high ground to ~level earth to ~mounded earth of varying heights.  

This constant atmospheric turbulence is also the case, in relation to the fact that the Earth is tilted ... presently at/or around 23.5 degrees.  The tilt of the Earth is the sole reason for its four seasons.  And of course, the four seasons is evidence of the valid existence of Natural Climate Change.  So, think!  The Earth's middle latitudes go through climate change four times a year.

The Earth is constantly moving in a process that acts to "balance out" the whole Planet.  This results in the Great Irony of it all:  In the effort to balance everything out, so much turbulence transacts.  Yes, a lot of things cross paths throughout Planet Earth's atmosphere which create confrontational situations.  The confrontational situations lead to sweeping actions ... like a broom ... that sweeps away all in the way.  After the calamity, there are clear skis.  

The Earth's history of costly weather events might seem randomly chaotic, but it's not.  It's quite organized, and it has gotten really costly to the inhabitants of Planet Earth, time after time after time again.

January 8, 2024

Michael Mann's Australia-is-doomed narrative is easily provable bull crap. It's just another con artist scare tactic.

close-up photography of koala bears eating leaves during daytime
So, where is all this end-of-the-world Australian doom Michael Mann was talking about?

My many 2022 Australian phone conversations informed me that hockey stick man, Michael Mann, was & is COMPLETELY full of fraud, in his dramatic, end-of-the-world theatrics, regarding his Australia-is-Doomed Show.  It started a couple years or so ago.  Nothing of the Doom Story that he has thus far told has been occurring in the proportion of time & space & intensity that Mann has been insinuating.  In fact, the opposite happened in Victoria and in the Coral Reef, as well as elsewhere in Australia.  
 
Now remember, according to Michael Mann, you should never spend any money on a vacation to Australia.  That's a form of false light defamation against the Australian tour industry.  After all, if people listen to Mann and decide to avoid Australia like a disease, then he basically robbing the Australian tour industry of its income.
 
Mann spoke of a possible future of Australian climate refugees.  Well, let's see.  We can start with the news that there definitely are Victorian dams which are full, as of 2022.  The others have been filling without impediment.  Some are overflowing.  No drought there.  Therefore, all of the predictions of a permanent Australian drought prove to be a matter of total incompetence on the part of the predictors.   They literally need to be removed from their posts, and their funding be revoked from them.  Not a joke.  They're emotional terrorists who spent at least 16 years terrifying schoolchildren.  And it's not a matter of them being well-meaning, though bumbling, buffoons.  They are deliberate liars who do things such as "hide the decline."

Now, remember what I wrote ... and what others have said:  Climate IS Cyclical.
 
***************************************************************************
 
 See: Melbourne's dams are full to the brim . . .    <========= <========= <=========

***************************************************************************

Below:  Dartmouth Dam, Oct 12, 2022: 101% capacity.   Hume is at 93%.  No drought there.
 
You can be assured that the Global Warming Profiteers will claim that the naturally gained water supply a deadly sign of evil evil Climate Change.  Thus, if it doesn't rain, it's Climate Change and the End of the World, and if it does rain, it's also Climate Change and the End of the World.  If you inhale, it's Climate change.  If you exhale, it's also Climate change.  Every type of weather event has recently been claimed to the result of the burning of fossil fuels & deadly Climate Change.  It's always the end of the world with the Climate Change People.  
 
                      The 2022 chart below is found at Elders Weather: Sydney Dam Levels

And to think, Obama's own EPA head was UNABLE to tell the House of Reps, during a hearing, what percentage of the atmosphere is CO2.  Well, it's less than one-half of 1%, at 42 parts per 100,000.  Nitrogen is 78,000 parts per 100,000, incidentally, and Oxygen is 21,000 parts per 100,000. 

                             We continue to the Indian Ocean side of the continent, with  Perth.

Perth, Australia.  Okay, where are all the dead leafless trees?

But of course, ever so coincidentally, Australia is on the other side of the world.  So, it looks as if Mann could easily get away with lying about things on the other side of the world, without 300+ MILLION Americans ever finding out about it.   Well, for starters, Australia recently had record cold and it had ski lodges open-for-business.   Yes, Australia gets snow. 

https://www.goodfreephotos.com/cache/australia/new-south-wales/other/perisher-valley-snow-fields-new-south-wales-australia_800.jpg?cached=1522527217
New South Wales, Australia.  A nation the size of the U.S. has snow.

Now, Australia is the size of the continental (contiguous) United States.  And of course, the weather is nowhere near the same throughout the United States.  So, you can't use one sentence to describe all of Australia as much as you cannot use one sentence to describe all of the United States.  We in America have snow country and desert-land ...  mountain ranges and flat lands ... hard water and soft water ... clay land and shale land ... as well as a corn belt that overlaps the Goiter Belt where iodine is non-existent.  

For the record, Australia is 2.9 million square miles in size.  It's the 6th largest nation on Earth and 1.7 MILLION square miles larger than India (which happens to be the 7th largest nation on Earth.)  It's also 2.2 million square miles larger than Texas.  This is why a person halfway around the world can instantly tell that any Australia-Is-Doomed tale is another Climate Nazi lie.  It's because the doomsday tales omit mention of the diversity and size of the Australian landmass.  

In addition to snow, Australia even gets Monsoons.   Remember, 370 BILLION American taxpayer-indebtedness dollars have been shelled out for this game-playing.  This game was taken to Australia.   So, where is all this end-of-the-world climate doom in Queensland, anyway?

Chevron Island, Queensland.  So, where is the drought and the brown tree leaves?

Moreover, it was in the Year 2022 when it was officially reported that two of the three Great Barrier Reef regions had the most coral cover in 36 years.  The third region of the Great Barrier Reef became a smorgasbord for hungry crown-of-thorn starfish.  All in all, the Great Barrier Reef is categorically regenerating, and this news invalidates Michael Mann's predictions of doom, as much as it negates his competency.  Mann looks to be too incompetent to make any forecast longer than five days into the future, if that long.

 Now, the 30th Parallel South Latitude runs through Southern Australia.  That latitude is where the Hadley Convection Cell exists, thereby causing the existence of deserts.  Thus, the desert lands of Australia are only there, because of a high pressure descending air convection cell, and NOT because of CO2  or  N2O  or  Methane  or whatever else the Global Warmists claim to be the cause of doom.   

For those unaware, all major deserts are on the 30th parallel, North & South, due to super large convection cells that circumference the Earth.  In addition, there are moderate deserts located on the Leeward side of Mountain ranges.  So stated for the record.

In addition, the Northern territory of Australia can be rough, and the Tropic of Cancer runs through the center of Australia.  Rugged land, yes.  But, Michael Mann is trying to deceive humanity into thinking that co2 only recently caused Australia to look the way it has looked for thousands of years.  You had to have heard of the Australian Outback.  Correct?  CO2 did NOT create it.   It has been around for a long time.

All in all, in my opinion (protected by U.S. Supreme Court case-law authority Times vs Sullivan) Michael Mann is a premeditated liar ... an outright con artist.  It's no mystery why Tim Ball said that Michael Mann belongs in the State Pen.  Lots of money was conned out of Congress, in the name of man-made-co2-driven Climate Change.  There still exists "theft by deception" in the law books, and there still exists in the U.S. Code, the False Claims Act. 

It would have been nice if someone would have told the public that only 42 parts per 100,000 is the concentration of atmospheric co2 --- that co2 only comprises 0.042% of the Troposphere.  It would have been nicer if someone would have told the public that far worse weather disasters, in number and in intensity, occurred in recent decades and in recent centuries, as well as in distant centuries.  In fact, it would be nice to have a government who doesn't constantly lie to its people.

Okay,  I'm ready to see all the Australian climate change doom that Michael Mann's talking about.  Hey, where'd it go?  All I see is Woodstock for seemingly well-fed kangaroos.

Yet Another Michael Mann Lie

As a refresher, keep in mind that Michael Mann falsely claimed to be a co-winner of some kind of Nobel Prize.  The link below will take you to the video recording of a Nobel Foundation rep emphatically & clearly stating that Michael Mann NEVER won or co-won any type of Nobel Prize.

See:  A representative of the Nobel Foundation clearly stating that Michael Mann is NOT a Nobel laureate of any kind. 

And remember, ladies & gentlemen, if it weren't for Michael Mann pushing his fraudulent end-of-the-world hockey stick graph, in his claiming that doom is soon to be here, you would not have to have payed $4.50, $5.50, and even $6.50 per gallon for fuel, just so that you could go from Usual Point A to Usual Point B.  After all, it was Mann who claimed that the Planet Earth's climate was mild for a thousand consecutive years, and then was made into a tempest by the Industrial Revolution.  

The truth is that turbulence is an aspect of the round, rotating, and tilted Earth's atmosphere.  Look at the time-lapsed video of cloud masses, if you don't believe this to be the case.  Then, simply look into the history of shipping, during the Age of Exploration ... and colonization.   

In summary . . .  in the past one thousand years, there have been hundreds and hundreds of documented sea storms and the accompanying destruction of ships and even fleets.  For example, there were 120 Spanish-language documentations of sea storms, for the 16th Century alone.  Even the Famous Ponce de Leon reported a 1508 storm.

During the past one thousand years, there were also numerous droughts, floods, early frosts, diseased crops, failed crops, diseased orchards, heatwaves, famines, rain storms, lightning storms, snow storms, floating icebergs, deep freezes, ice stacking, glacier rise, glacial melt, landslides, avalanches, wildfires, forest fires, plagues of insects, epidemics, pandemics, etc, all when atmospheric co2 levels were very low.

Mann made it sound as if, not listening to him would cause climate chaos and World War III.  Wrong.  Listening to him and following his Nazi guidelines is what is causing World War III to transpire, if not a dominoes effect of civil wars.

Tim Ball

You know, when the Mann v Tim Ball lawsuit came to a close, Tim Ball let me know that he intended on letting the world know how much suffering Michael Mann caused him to endure.  All that Tim Ball said, to trigger the lawsuit, was that, "Michael Mann is at Penn State, and he should be in the State Pen."  That one sentence caused Tim to release his financial reserves, out of desperation.  

Tim could not spend the remaining years of his life in peace.  He had to be tortured by Michael Mann.  Michael Mann showed that he does not care about humanity.  He has no sensitivity for human suffering, evidenced by him causing human suffering.  After all, how much money do the poor have to pay at the gas pumps, during the Biden administration years?

BTW, Tim Ball extended courtesies and diplomacy toward me, because I am the son of an United States Air Force decorated combat vet, and Tim was a pilot in the Canadian Air Force.  So, Tim reached out to me, out of respect for my father.  Plus, I did ask Tim for some advise on undoing the blatant meteorological, statistical, and historical lies told by the Gore-Hansen-Mann cabal.  
 
This Climate Con Game is so blatant.  It's like reading a trick question.  How could people not instantly see it ?  Oh, they were never taught textbook material that was known long before Al Gore put his face in front of a camera.  
 
In not allowing that textbook material to be readily spoken on TV, it is equivalent to doing a Nazi book burning, on a Crystal Night.  Nice Freedom of Speech that Al Gore, Michael Mann, and Captain Bow-tie allow, not to mention . . .           Oh, that's right.  I can't mention it.

The Great Rio Grande River Lie of 2022 ... told by a very dishonest media

 Another Blatant Lie of the Media

Let's confirm yet another example of the commercial media's lies, in its hyping-up of weather events that were never worse than any weather event or weather trend in the past thousand years.  This includes ==>"the nine flood-rich periods" of Europe, ==>the ice-jam-floods of the Little Ice Age, ==>wind storms, ==>cyclones, ==>the droughts throughout Asia, Europe, & America  ==>crop failure, ==>ice stacking during the Little Ice Age, ==>brutal cold snaps, ==>heat waves.

On July 25, 2022, it was reported that a five mile stretch of the Rio Grande River in Albuquerque New Mexico went dry, due to the burning of fossil fuels.  This sounded like long-term, parched territory that couldn't possibility be replenished in three or six years.  Well ...

Firstly, the long Rio Grande River has places where water diversion & bypass occurs, for irrigation purposes. Water was being deliberately bypassed into diversionary ditches, at that point of the river.

One thing to point out is that there is no way that any river moves with the regular flow of water and then suddenly dries-out at one point, only to have flowing water suddenly reappear in it, five miles later.  The actual truth is that . . .

. . .  the Albuquerque River water "gage height" was 1.62 ft on July 25, 2022.  Three days later, the gage height then elevated to 2.3 ft.  Three days after that, on July 31, the gage height rose even higher, to 3.39 ft.  Then, within three more days, on August 3, the gage height rose to 4.09 ft.  That's a very quick rise of water level that negates the assertion of "drought."

Conclusion:  On July 19, 2022, in England ... and on July 25, 2022, in America ... we were told that we have an irreversible "climate crisis" drought, due to the burning of fossil fuels.  Yet, within NINE days, the gage height of the Albuquerque segment of the Rio Grande River rose 250%!  As of May 15, 2023, the gage height of the same river was 6.65 ft, while the "maximum operating limit" there is 7.50 ft.  In fact, the "minor flood stage" there starts at 8.00 ft.  

The Rio Grande, in Albuquerque, rose 410% in 10 month's time ... in 294 days.  Without doubt, the July 25, 2022 commercial media report was & is a blatant fraud that frightens schoolchildren.   Look for yourself at the significant change for the better that the media did NOT reveal.  The media kept the lie going.

 

Schoolchildren of America, you do not have to fear that which Albert Gore predicted 16 years ago and which never materialized even slightly, other than an occasional heat wave in a world which has had multiple heat waves throughout its recorded history, along with droughts, famines, and floods.  And of course, this is the atmospheric equivalent to Lions and Tigers and Bears.  On my!
