November 1, 2023

To exaggerate is to lie. Come and see a 24-chart sample of July 2023 temperatures throughout world; and not merely the cherry picked ones.

Take note: The newspaper article below was written in 1901, 122 years ago, when the atmospheric co2 level was very low.  It reached 109F in Italy in 1901.  The sea water off of Syracuse Sicily was so hot that people stopped going into it.  Italian Vineyards shriveled.  Now, did you hear of this happening in 2023?  If nothing of the such happened, then you were witnessing hyper-exaggerations, false-light reporting, and sleight-of-hand deceptions from the media, throughout the summer of 2023.

Today's media blames every weather event on co2.  In 1901, the people who inhabited the birthplace of the Renaissance knew that the heat came from Sirocco Winds.  A Sirocco Wind is one that comes from the Sahara.  Heat in the Mediterranean has been attributed to Sahara Winds throughout the centuries.  This sounds much more logical than blaming a trace gas that exists in the atmosphere at less than 1/2 of 1% and which is incapable of retaining infrared heat when it is going through a symmetric molecular dipolar vibration, concerning its two oxygen atoms. 

In the Summer of 2023, you witnessed a heat anomaly summer.  But, you did NOT witness the hottest summer in the history of the world ... or of mankind ... or even of Italy.  You did NOT witness the Planet Earth's atmosphere reaching a point of no-return.  Instead, you were witnessing climate activists in search of taxpayer funding, by means of marketing fear of the End of the World.  You were witnessing networks looking for high ratings, under the belief that "fear sales."  You were witnessing politicians trying to get some of that $370 BILLION Congressional climate outlay into their districts before re-election time, in 2024. 
Tell the movie stars whom Al Gore used as useful propaganda idiots that "it" has all happened before, over and over and over again.  After all, the world is round and it travels the same elliptical orbit (with variations thereof, of course).  Moreover, history repeats itself; even weather history.

  The Friday, July 5th, 1901 edition of the Sydney Morning Herald.  Now, this is a report in 1901, 122 years ago.  It shows that weather hasn't changed much on the long-term scale.

Purpose:  To show once again that summertime heat is nothing new.  It's a part of climate history, and history repeats itself.  Proof that this is an authentic early 1900s report exists in the mention that "horse traffic" was "suspended," in New York City, and that 250 animals died in the same New York City ... and that firemen intended to hose down the surviving animals, for relief.  

All of the 2023 (pre-election year) hype is merely because Climate Hysteria has become a Big Money Industry, due to the United States Congress whose members are not very well versed in Atmospheric science.  Some of them want the "taxpayer climate money" to go into their districts ... for re-election purposes.

To Distort a Fact is to Tell a Lie

Now, as far as goes July 2023 being the hottest month in the past 125,000 years, how about it being the hottest July in the past 11 years?  The Year 2012 was searing.  So too was 2011.  So, it's proper to compare July 2023 to 2011 & 12; not to 125,000 years ago.

In addition, how about July 2023 being the hottest summer month since tragic 2003?  Tragic 1976?  Blazing 1936?  Or since 1934, the worst drought year in memory?  Then there was the pole ice cap melt year of 1922.  1921 was a year of searing heat, also.  Then there is tragic 1911.  Searing 1910.  Shocking 1906.  And finally, there was triple digit 1901, when it did reach 109 in Italia.  

Then again, we could call July 2023 the hottest summer month since 1977, when Athens experienced 117F.  Folks, the heat has all happened before, far more recently than 125,000 years ago, and even more recently than 125 years ago.  When the Climate Hysteria People are not outright lying, they are hyper-exaggerating facts so badly that the facts they toot become distorted versions of themselves.  

Newsflash: Climate is cyclical, and the atmosphere is NOT driven by any trace gas, especially co2.  It's driven by the Coriolis Effect, the Tilt (Obliquity) of the Earth, and the Sun which happens to steer Pressure Gradient Force and all of its facets.  And there is nothing new under the Sun.

BTW, average temperatures ... where the average temperatures are in the 90s and even 100s ... do NOT constitute a heat anomaly.  Thus, 111F in Baghdad is NOT an end-of-the-world climate-crisis heatwave.  It's the same old same old for Baghdad.  That range of July heat was ongoing in Baghdad, even before the invention of the automobile ...  when the most popular form of transportation there was none other than ===> the flying carpet.  

Plus, 97F in Dallas is NOT an anomalous heatwave that guarantees the end of the world, either.  The historical monthly average in July for Dallas is 97F.  And concerning Dallas in July, it's easy to see why its NFL franchise chose to hold its yearly summer camp in Oxnard California.  When I was in Oxnard, one late July week, I had to turn on the motel heater in the morning, because it was chilly there during the  a.m. hours in July.

Now, you know that North Africa, Arabia, the majority of India, parts of China, Arizona, Texas, Rome, Granada, Seville, Madrid, and even Wichita Kansas will be hot every summer.  In fact, the historical monthly average for Wichita in July is 93F.  None the less, it's the departure from average temperatures is what counts, along with the number of cities enduring heat anomalies simultaneously ... as well as the frequency, in terms of years.  It's a broad scale equation; not a narrowed one of strategically selected cities that absorb asphalt from every angle, causing the Urban Heat Island Effect.  In as much, there are instances of surface temperature rise that have nothing to do with co2.  It has to do with asphalt.

For now, there are people who need to see that there was NOT a widespread occurrence of record high temperature "anomalies" in July of 2023.  So, take a look at the following photocopies of official temperature reports throughout the world.  You will easily see that the claim of July 4, 2023 being the warmest day in 125,000 years is the next phase of lying propaganda from talentless writers, talentless UN reps, and talentless activists, as well as talentless thinkers.

You say that this was the hottest month ever?  Prove it.  The Years 1936, 1934, 1931, 1922, 1921, 1913, 1911, 1910, 1906, 1901, 1895, 1878, and 1870 were hotter.  Then comes the matter of the Medieval Warm Period, the Roman Warm Period, and the Minoan Warm Period.  

Note:  Cities which do NOT have well established long-term monthly average temperatures will not be used here.

[1]  Let's begin with Mexico and its capital city.  The common citizen assumes that all of Mexico is blazing with heat every summer.  This is especially the case, being that the UN Gen-Sec claims that we are now in the phase of "global boiling." Therefore, if July 2023 is the hottest time in the past 125,000 years, then the summer would be much hotter, and there would be a few 90F temps charted below, along with a couple 100F temps.  The hottest July 2023 day in Mexico City was 82F.  Well, take a look at the Mexico City temperatures for July 2023.  Oh, and by the way, the average July high temperature for "hot-hot" Mexico City is . . . 74 Fahrenheit  ... which happens to be 23.33 Celsius.  No end-of-the-world heat to be found.  No Global Boiling here, folks.  Time to move-on.

[2]  Let's go further south to Venezuela; to its capital.  If July 2023 were the hottest month in the history of Planet Earth ... or in the past 125,000 years ... then surely Venezuela would have had several 90F & 100F July days, in 2023.  It has reached 100F in Caracas Venezuela, in the past.  But not in July of 2023.  83F was the hottest.  The average is 81F. This is far from Global Boiling.  The UN lied.

[3] Let's go to nearby Bogota Columbia.  It's located between the Equator and the tropics.  Surely it was hot there in July of 2023.  Only in your dreams.  The warmest it was in July of 2023 was 71F.  Are you sure that the world is heating out of control?  It looks more like the mouthpieces at the UN and in the Biden Administration are what's out of control.  See for yourself:
[4] Quito Ecuador is actually on the Equator.  The Equator gets direct sunlight.  It surely must be hot there in July.   The answer is, "No it's not."  The hottest it was there in July of 2023 was  69F.  On three of those days, the daily high was only 59F.  On two of those July days, the daily high was only 57F.  No Global Boiling at this part of the Equator, during July 2023.

[5]  To go any further south on the South America map is to go into Southern Hemispheric Winter.  So, let's you and I go north to a place where the average July high temperature is 91F.  Decade after decade, in Panama City Florida, July daytime averaged 91 degrees Fahrenheit.  This means that there would have been a wave of 100+ Fahrenheit during the hottest July in the past 125,000 years.  Well, all of July 2023 was average for Panama City.  In fact, 23 of those days were below average.  Seven of those days were 4 or more degrees below average.  Are you beginning to see how the UN is insulting the reasonable citizen's intelligence with its official lies?  
[6] Let's stay in Florida, for one more example of the UN's lies.   The Key Largo vicinity was recently heralded as the venue of the hottest Atlantic Ocean water in history.  Well firstly, the temperature involved is that of shallow exiting "tributary" Everglade run-off water and NOT Atlantic Ocean surface water.  Plus, years ago, near the same general area, five or ten or so years ago, 102F was reported.   The bottom line is that the July 2023 temperatures for Key Largo are completely average for Key Largo.  The hottest July 2023 day was no more than 2 degrees Fahrenheit ABOVE average.  The lowest temperature day in the same month was no more than 4 degrees Fahrenheit BELOW average.
[7] Let's now float over to San Juan Puerto Rico.  That location is definitively a Summertime hot spot.  In fact, the average July high temperature there is 90F.  Therefore, the hottest San Juan July in the history of all mankind has got to have included 90F & 100F days throughout the month.  Well, throughout the entire month of July 2023, all high temperatures were BELOW AVERAGE, in San Juan Puerto Rico, except for three.  The hottest July 2023 day there was 2 degrees Fahrenheit above average.  
[8] Nairobi Kenya is a capital city.  Kenya is bordered by South Sudan, Somalia, Ethiopia, and Uganda.  Surely it gets very hot there in July.  Surely it had reached 100F in Nairobi during the hottest July in human history.   Surely it hadn't.  It didn't even come close.  It was literally hotter in Pennsylvania, thousands of miles away.   Look for yourself.
[9] Rabat is the capital city of Morocco.  Surely it would have been over-heated throughout the hottest July in the history of mankind.  This is surely not true, for the capital city, at least.
[10] Next comes the city of Beirut Lebanon.  It's July average temperature is 88F.  Well, throughout the entire month of July 2023, Beirut's temperatures were either average or below average.  This is the opposite of "Global Boiling."

Okay then, take a look below and keep in mind that the average July temperature for Beirut is 88F.  There was NOT a single day ... from June 25 to July 29 ... that was above average.
[11] We now proceed to Southwestern India, between the Equator and the Tropic of Cancer.  The state is Kerala and the city is Iritty.  The average July high temperature there is 88F.  In July of 2023, there was not a single day above average.  The temperature on eight of those days was ten Fahrenheit degrees or more BELOW AVERAGE.  So, where is all this untold heat which makes July 2023 the hottest July in human history?  Not in Iritty Kerala.  That's for sure.
[12] We next go to historic Turkey, at its center, to a city which used to be called, Cappadocia.  Today, the central city is called Avanos, in the Nevsehir Province.  Its average high July temperature is 90 degrees Fahrenheit.  This means that it's hot there in the summertime.  Well, in July of 2023, no daily high was more than 3 degrees above average, except for one and only one 99 degree Fahrenheit day.  Twelve of the days were 4 degrees or more BELOW AVERAGE.  And on three of those days, the high temperature was 14 to 21 degrees BELOW AVERAGE.  This is NOT end-of-the-world heat.  Quit scaring schoolchildren. 
[13] Let's go further east, to the Ghazni District of Afghanistan.  That's located in eastern Afghanistan.  The average July high temperature there is 87F.  During July of 2023, not a signal day's high was more than 3 degrees Fahrenheit above average, except for July 3rd, where it was 5 degrees Fahrenheit above average.  Furthermore, ten of those days had highs that were more than 3 degrees BELOW AVERAGE.  In fact, six of those days had highs in the 70s.  This does not constitute historic heat in any capacity.

[14] Let's return to India, to a historic section of it.  Once upon a time, there was the Maratha Empire.  It's capital is found in the present-day Raigad District.  Now, India is reputed to get really hot in the summer.  Now, Raigad's historical monthly average high for July is 86F.  Throughout all of July 2023, Raigad did NOT have a day over the average July temperature.  No Global Boiling here. 
[15]  Let's now address the claim that, in 2023, Atlantic Ocean temps have dangerously rose to the point of an end-of-the-world climate crisis caliber.  Well, there was the MANGROVE SWAMP "101F farce" in Florida, where Everglade run-off was called "101F ocean water."  Now, if the Atlantic Ocean has heated-up above record high temperatures, then the Caribbean and Bermuda should have been saunas in July.  Let's start with Bermuda.  

The historic July temperature average for Hamilton, Pembroke, Bermuda is 85 degrees Fahrenheit.  And of course, Hamilton is in the center of that elongated island.  Throughout the entire month of July 2023, not a signal day resulted in a degree above the average high.  July 2023 was advertised as the month with the hottest Atlantic Ocean water temperatures in history.  Well, there was no record-breaking heat in Bermuda.  There wasn't even slightly-above average heat there.  

There was anomalous heat in Kingston Jamaica, though.  But, NOT it's-the-end-of-the-world-and-we're-all-gonna-die heat.  The bottom line is that the whole world is not on fire, as the media very immaturely claims.
[16] Staying in the Caribbean, we next review Bridgetown Barbados.  It's historical monthly temperature average for July is 85F.  The hottest day in July 2023 was two degrees above average. 

Now, certain "journalists" reported that the Atlantic Ocean water temperatures were higher than they ever were, in 2023.  Well, where?  I went through the official US government ocean coastal water temperature reports.  The hottest water temperature that I saw was 94.1F, off of Louisiana.  Everything else was reasonably within the historical temperature averages.  So, where is this end-of-the-world heat?  Not anywhere near Barbados.  That's for sure.
[17] The next Caribbean temperature we shall view is that of Basse-Terre Guadeloupe.  It's historical monthly average high for July is 89F.   Throughout all of July 2023 not a signal day's high temp was more than one degree Fahrenheit over the July average.   Two of the days were 6 degrees BELOW average, but you can be assured that they are not the harbingers of an oncoming ice age.  The question remains:  Where in the Atlantic Ocean is this end-of-the-world extreme heat?  Nowhere near Guadeloupe.  That's for sure.
[18] We continue to search the Caribbean for any possible signs of extreme heat as was never before encountered on Planet Earth.  Thus far, we have found temperatures hovering around average.  Let's see if there is any indication that extremely high, end-of-the-world temperatures are near Sainte Luce Martinique.   The historical monthly average high there is 86F.  The hottest July 2023 day there was two degrees Fahrenheit above average.  Well, if you can find this alleged raging Atlantic Ocean water heat, then let me know.  For now, I'm going east, to the West African data base.
[19] Let's go east, to West Africa.  The typical novice assumes that Africa per se is hot in July.  This would include Cameroon, a nation which knows what it is to have a competitive world cup soccer team.  Well, Yaounde Cameroon's historical monthly average high is 79F.  During July 2023, there were two 85F days and one 84F day.  But, there was also a 74F day.  However, all of the other days were within 3 degrees of average.  The temperature range went from 5 degrees below average to 6 degrees above average.  No apocalyptic end-of-the-world temperatures here.  Let's move on.
[20] We move on to neighboring Nigeria and its capital, Lagos.  Being that Nigeria is African, it's assumed by the casual novice that Nigeria roars with heat in July.  Well, Lagos Nigeria's average high temp is 83F.  That's a common Pennsylvania July temperature.  As far as went July 2023, Lagos had one day that was 4 degrees above average and two days that were 3 degrees above average.  The July 2023 high temperatures were in the Utterly-Average Range.  The hottest day that was a grand total of 4 degrees above average, and the coolest day there was an equally grand 4 degrees BELOW average.  No climate crisis here, folks.  Time to move onward to the next location
[21]  Ethiopia is a historic African nation bordered east of Sudan.  Now, the capital of Sudan reached 105F in July of 2023.  So, it's only logical to assume that Ethiopia gets as hot in July.  Well, in all of  July 2023, the capital of Ethiopia's highest temperature was 75F.  It's lowest temperature in July was 51F.  No Global Boiling here. The Sec-Gen of the UN needs to resign and be replaced by a honest man.
[22]  Let's go to Central America; to Honduras.  Central America is assumed to have blazing heat in July.  In fact, the average high for Santa Lucia, Honduras is a very counter-intuitive & tame 81 degrees Fahrenheit.  In the month of July 2023, there was one 86F day and one 84F day.  No other day was above the average high temp for July.   Fourteen days were more than 3 degrees BELOW normal.  Therefore, there was no searing heat in Santa Lucia for the entire month of July 2023.  So, where is all of this highly anomalous end-of-the-world heat?  Not in Santa Lucia.  That's for sure.
[23] Costa Rica is the land of tropical forests, waterfalls, and La Pura Vida.  It's capital is between the Tropic of Cancer and the Equator.  So, one would except hot hot summers in Costa Rica.  Well, in July of 2023 San Jose Costa Rica's highest temperature did not go above 82F.  That amounts 4F above average.  Furthermore, San Jose's lowest high was 72F, and that amounts to 6F BELOW average.  This sums-up to a typically average month during the month advertised as the hottest one in history.  

Well, in modern history, 1936 was the hottest.  World record heat was in 1913.  The worst drought year, according to NASA, was 1934.  And 1896, 1901, 1911, and 1921 were year of tremendous heat as well.  So too was 1976, 1980, 2003, and 2012. People need to realize that this end-of-the-world heat hype coincides with a recent US congressional appropriation of $370 BILLION for climate activism.
[24] We'll finish at the two dozen mark.  Now, the climate activists were mentioning how incredibly warm the Atlantic has been in the summer of 2023.  And of course, the quintessential mid-Atlantic archipelago is the Azores.  If the Atlantic Ocean is heating up with the highest heat in the history of mankind, then the Azores would be above average in temperature.  Well, in July 2023, the Azores had 7 days in the 80s, 22 days in the 70s, and 2 days in the 60s.  Concerning lows, 26 days were in the 50s.  Okay then, where exactly is the Atlantic Ocean doing the act of boiling?  Not around the Azores.  That's for sure.
With the above evidence having been posted, along with numerous pieces of "evidentiary support" within the Blue Marble Album's 54 climate discourses & tutorials, what will it take to get the mainstream media and the Climate Hysteria activists to cease & desist from insulting the intelligence of the common working man & woman?  This has been ongoing since June of 1988, starting with the Jim Hansen whose predictions of climate doom all failed.  That amounts to 35 years of fear mongering & the intentional infliction of emotional distress heaped upon human after human after human after human.  When's it gonna stop?

October 29, 2023

The UK in 2022: Increased crop yields, and NO "End of the World," "Climate Crisis," "CO2 Tipping Point," "London's-on-fire" crop failures.

Welcome to the REAL ENGLAND, and not to the science fiction version that can gain for dishonest scientists and activists a chunk of the US Congressional 10-yr climate funding appropriation of $370 BILLION, as seen in Lying for Dollars.
Perhaps you remember the July 19, 2022 reports out of London.  [1] Pursuant to the media mouthpieces, the atmospheric CO2 level reached a tipping point.  CO2 was now causing Greater London's fire numbers to escalate, even though, in 2014, it was reported that yearly fires in the 607 square mile London vicinity were at least half of what they were in each individual year, from 1969 and 2008.  [2] None the less, the less-than-honest media mouthpieces said that England was undergoing heat like never before.  [3] Simultaneously, journalists were stating that the heat would cause crops to dry-out, turn brown, and die in massive volumes of acreage.  

A killer famine was now inevitable ... all because of that darn co2.  The Year 2022 was declared a founding date for Climate Enlightenment.  But, the reality was that it was nothing more than another year of climate activist lies, taken from a page in the Climate Con Game Handbook.  

For starters, Greater London's number of fires decreased significantly from 2008 to today.  And in 2021, Greater London had the LEAST number of yearly fires in record-keeping history.  The Year 2022 was the year with the fourth lowest yearly fires.

Keep in mind that certain journals would headline their climate doom articles with photos of a parched stalk of corn or a dried-out patch of grains.  Thus, it is always a prediction that crops will dry and die, due to the present level of co2 which is less than 1/2 of 1% of the atmosphere.  However, in the middle of July 2022, that which England was experiencing was a Sirocco Wind, and NOT a co2 attack.  A Sirocco Wind is a wind that comes out of the Sahara.  Such winds are dry.

The Year 2022 has passed, and record-keeping has continued.  This included the UK's 2022 crop yields report of December 2022.  Now, according to the climate hysteria people, England was going to have low crop yields, due to the Summer of 2022.   Well, it is once again proven that the Climate Hysteria People have no idea what they're talking about.  The UK had crop yield gains across the proverbial board.

The two photo-copies below are from an official United Kingdom government site.  Those two photo-copies illustrate yet again that the Climate Doom People spent the last 35 years failing in every one of their doomsday climate predictions.  Contrary to the theatric "dire-consequence" predictions about 2022, it turns out that wheat production, barley production, total cereal production, and oilseed production were all up, in the United Kingdom, in 2022.  

As far as goes Oats, there was a "per capita" gain at harvest time; a gain "per acre planted."  You see, in 2022, 13% less acreage was used in planting oats.  On a per capita basis ... concerning the lesser amount of land used in oat farming ... there was a 2.9% increase in the harvesting thereof.  Therefore, the only reason why the UK had 10% less oat production than in 2021 was because less land was used in the planting of oats.  All in all, these 2022 UK Crop Yield Gains are the opposite of the dire predictions of the Global Warming People ... of the Climate Change People ... of the Climate Crisis People.

In addition, the 2022 harvest of British wheat & Winter barley both contained, on average, 93.7% of the 14.5% UK moisture content standard.   Spring Barley contained, on average, 92.4% of the moisture content standard.  Oats contained, on average,  91% of the British standard.  And oilseed contained 84.4% of its  9% moisture standard content.  Thus, parched crops waving in the Autumn air throughout British farmland was not occurring in 2022.

And of course, people of reason instinctively know that an increase in atmospheric co2 will cause an increase in crop harvesting, instead of it causing the End of the World.  The UN climate activists are people from Second World and Third World countries.  Thus, they have third world minds.   It's super-easy to catch them when they are lying.  But, the big question at present is:  When are they ever telling the truth?  Well, directly below is a public transmission from a department of the United Kingdom's government.

Now for the irony of 2022:  There was one crop which yielded 18% less than in 2021.  HOWEVER, the cause of this was ...  none other than ... cold and NOT heat.  The crop was sugar beets.  

"The first two weeks of December were the coldest start to the winter since 2010, according to Britain's Met Office.  Farmers have said the cold weather damaged sugar beet crops which were still in the ground."  (Nigel  Hunt;  Reuters)

Usually, the UK produces 7.5 million tonnes.  But, in 2022, it was approx 6 million.  That's not an end-of-the-world crop failure.  

In as much, the hysterical theatrics of the media in its climate reports don't come close to the reality you see when you do something called, "go outside and look around" ... or when you study crop reports ... or hospitals admissions ... or any number of things that the media never reports above and beyond a fleeting & token amount.  

October 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.

Antarctic Ice Gain, 2009 to 2019: 661 gigatons (2,048 sq miles of growth)

Credit goes to Julia R. Andreasen, Anna E. Hogg, and Heather L. Selley.
For those in a hurry, between 2009 and 2019, Antarctica had a net ice gain of 661 gigatons.  A gigaton is a billion tons.  Therefore, contrary to the climate doomsayers' claims that Antarctica is rapidly losing ice, there was actually a massive gain of surface mass balance there.  
The climate crisis propagandists were committing the predictable "false light deception" on the topic, when they kept speaking as if all of Antarctica were losing a massive amount of ice.  The climate doomsayers only focused on the ice shelves of West Antarctica which certainly have been retreating.  But, they occupy much less space than the ones of East Antarctica.  

More specifically, there are 34 ice shelves attached to Antarctica.  Of these, 18 have been retreating.  However, 16 of them having been growing, and two of those are the size of nations.  Antarctica is 5.5 MILLION square miles in size.  This means that it's 21 times LARGER than Texas and 134 times LARGER than the State of Ohio.  In fact, it's 4.25 times LARGER than India.

Plus, West Antarctica includes the Antarctic Peninsula which happens to NOT be within the Antarctic Polar Circle.  That peninsula is closer to Argentina than it is to the South Pole.  This means that it is not the End of the World when its summertime temperatures go above freezing, into 45F, and even into 65F.

The 2009 to 2019 Antarctic surface mass balance gain of  661 gigatons  was due to Eastern Antarctic ice gain which includes the two largest ice shelves in the continent.  Both of those ice shelves are actually attached to West Antarctica and to East Antarctica.   But, their ice gains are not counted as West Antarctic ice gains; only as East Antarctic ones.

None the less, one of those East Antarctic ice shelves is the size of Spain (The Ross Ice Shelf).  The other one is the size of California.  In fact, it's 16,000 square miles LARGER than Montana. (The Filche-Ronne Shelf ).   The net of ice gained in Antarctica, from 2009 to 2019, was 2,048 sq miles.

At this point, it's important to note that ...

[1] ... in 2015, Antarctica had its LARGEST sea ice extent in recorded history.  

[2] ... and the bottom of the massive Ross Ice Shelf was found to be crystalized, and NOT melting.

[3]  Moreover, Antarctica had its coldest recorded Winter in the Year 2021.  

In conclusion, for a person to claim that Antarctica is massively loosing ice is to contradict scientifically observed reality. 

The Year 2019, another year of super hysteria  

In the Year 2019, after the massive Antarctic ice gain of ten years, an individual without any kind of Ph.d claimed that the Ross Ice Shelf & elsewhere were massively losing so much ice that the melted ice was going into the Southern Ocean and creating a disaster to soon come upon humanity.  She asserted that Antarctica will melt to the point of soon creating a global sea level rise of 23 feet.  

Then the assertion suddenly changed to a sea level rise of 38 feet, all because of runaway Antarctic ice shelves and glaciers sliding into the Southern Ocean.  Then, the averment morphed into another change, where it was claimed that today's state of Antarctica will cause a global sea level rise of 45 feet.  And we are supposed to take people as idiotic as her seriously.

Antarctic ice shelves are already deeply within water.  In fact, concerning the northern top of Planet Earth, if all the ice on the Arctic Ocean (surrounding the NORTH POLE) were to melt tomorrow, there would be no sea level rise.  It's the same science as when all of the ice cubes in your ice tea glass melts.  The melted ice cubes don't cause the tea glass to overflow.

Being that the Antarctic ice shelves are already mostly submerged into the ocean, when a 15 mile-long piece of the Filche-Ronne Ice Shelf broke-off in 2019, Scientific America stated:

"Because the ice shelf that this berg calved from was already floating on water, the event won't directly impact sea levels."      (Note:  It's only correct to state, "already floating deeply within sea water."  But of course, today's scientists see how much money one can deceptively con out of Congressional members who seek re-election votes and who know that the average American voter is simply misinformed when the average voter is not being kept uninformed.)

The hysteric 2019 article then stated that it will cause Antarctic glaciers to slide into the Southern Ocean and create global sea level rise.  The claim was that the relatively minor piece of ice shelf was catching all glaciers up to the time of dislocating itself from the super-massive ice shelf.  The truth is that the inland glaciers become part of the ice shelves, themselves.  So, for any one glacier to fall into the Southern Ocean and cause Florida tourists to move their lounge chairs & sun tan lotion bottles five feet inland, that glacier needs to take a number, just like customers at an American bakery, waiting to be served.

Now, the Filche-Ronne Ice Shelf is bigger than Montana.  How long will it take an inland glacier to slide across a plain of ice the size of  Montana and fall into the ocean?   Yes, the ice shelves breathe, in that their sizes change according to the season ... as in Summer and Winter.   But, glaciers first become the ice shelf itself, and every ice shelf is like an iceberg.  The vast majority of each ice shelf is mostly underwater, already.

This type of hysteria has been ongoing since June of 1988, when Jim Hansen made his doomsday predictions in front of a few United States senators.  Yet, Saint Augustine Florida, the oldest city in the United States, is still NOT underwater, as of 2023.  

All in all, if the world comes to an end in the next ten years, it will do so by either [1] Nuclear Winter, [2] or a wave of meteoroid landings on Planet Earth, likened to the 1913 Tunguska Event, or an [3] an unexpected plague.  Even another Carrington Event (1859) wouldn't end life on Planet Earth.  However, it will have tragic consequences, resulting in human suffering squared and cubed ... and even hysteric warfare, where man turns into an animal.  

The confidently stated assertion by climate doomsayers is that Antarctica keeps losing gigatons of ice.

In review:

It was found that, between 2009 and 2019, sixteen of the 34 ice shelves of Antarctica were growing enough to produce a surface mass balance gain (an increase of ice) amounting to positive 661 Gigatons.  

It was found that East Antarctica's ice shelves let Antarctica grow another 5,305 square kilometers in ice, despite the 18 ice shelves in the West of Antarctica and on its peninsula which were retreating.  This translates into an aggregate ice growth of 2,048 square miles.   

Keep in mind that Antarctica's peninsula is outside of the Polar Circle of the Southern Hemisphere.  Thus, summertime temperatures above freezing there are not a sign of the End of the World.  In fact, the Antarctic Peninsula is closer to Argentina than it is to the South Pole.  This is understandable when you take into account the reality that Antarctica is 5.5 MILLION square miles wide.  It's the exact same size as the Arctic Ocean, on the other side of Planet Earth.  This brings the rationally minded person to a question:  Why is the South Pole all ice-covered terrain, while the North Pole is all ice-covered water the exact same size as Antarctica?   ... that is, why, in addition to the centipedal force caused by the Coriolis Effect?

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.
