About that Disappearing Polar Ice

by Mark Stetson
NASA finally shows us that the disappearing polar ice came back years ago and has grown larger than before.
Al Gore and others of his tribe have assured us that the polar ice is receding, vanishing, melting…
But then odd things happen. Sometimes we get reports that the polar ice cap is thicker than ever. Other times a ship, carrying researchers who want to investigate the disappearing ice, gets stuck trapped in the ice that is not supposed to be there.
The reason, we are now told, is that the ice is, in fact, larger than it was. James Taylor writes about it at Forbes.com under the headline, “Updated NASA Data: Global Warming Not Causing Any Polar Ice Retreat.” The new data completely contradicts the “disappearing ice” allegations.
The timing of the 1979 NASA satellite instrument launch could not have been better for global warming alarmists. The late 1970s marked the end of a 30-year cooling trend. As a result, the polar ice caps were quite likely more extensive than they had been since at least the 1920s. Nevertheless, this abnormally extensive 1979 polar ice extent would appear to be the “normal” baseline when comparing post-1979 polar ice extent.

Updated NASA satellite data show the polar ice caps remained at approximately their 1979 extent until the middle of the last decade. Beginning in 2005, however, polar ice modestly receded for several years. By 2012, polar sea ice had receded by approximately 10 percent from 1979 measurements. (Total polar ice area – factoring in both sea and land ice – had receded by much less than 10 percent, but alarmists focused on the sea ice loss as “proof” of a global warming crisis.)
A 10-percent decline in polar sea ice is not very remarkable, especially considering the 1979 baseline was abnormally high anyway. Regardless, global warming activists and a compliant news media frequently and vociferously claimed the modest polar ice cap retreat was a sign of impending catastrophe. Al Gore even predicted the Arctic ice cap could completely disappear by 2014.
In late 2012, however, polar ice dramatically rebounded and quickly surpassed the post-1979 average. Ever since, the polar ice caps have been at a greater average extent than the post-1979 mean.
Now, in May 2015, the updated NASA data show polar sea ice is approximately 5 percent above the post-1979 average.
So do you think the EPA or the Mainstream Media will acknowledge the new information?
I don’t think so either!

U.N. CLIMATE CHIEF ADMITS GOAL IS WORLD WIDE REDISTRIBUTION OF WEALTH

christiana_figueres
A high UN official has admitted the real reason for the climate hysteria: to transform the world economy, redistributing income between from rich nations to poorer ones. Christiana Figueres, the Executive Secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), warned that the fight against climate change is a process and that the sought-after transformation of the world economy will not be decided at one conference or in one agreement.
At a press conference in Brussels, Figueres stated:
This is probably the most difficult task we have ever given ourselves, which is to intentionally transform the economic development model, for the first time in human history.
This is the first time in the history of mankind that we are setting ourselves the task of intentionally, within a defined period of time to change the economic development model that has been reigning for at least 150 years, since the industrial revolution. That will not happen overnight and it will not happen at a single conference on climate change, be it COP 15, 21, 40 — you choose the number. It just does not occur like that. It is a process, because of the depth of the transformation.
In 2011 speech in Madrid Figueres claimed that the recent unrest in Egypt was caused by rising food-prices which were in turn caused by global warming.
On a global level, increasingly unpredictable weather patterns will lead to falling agricultural production and higher food prices, leading to food insecurity. In Africa, crop yields could decline by as much as 50% by 2020. Recent experiences around the world clearly show how such situations can cause political instability and undermine the performance of already fragile states.
She added that if we took part of our defense spending and invested it in reducing carbon we could avoid the “horrors” associated with global warming.
Decisions on future defense spending are intricately linked to decisions on immediate climate investment through the different future risk assessments. What will be better?
Even under current trends, the rate of defence spending growth could account for a major part of the money needed to cut global emissions and to help the vulnerable, often in the most unstable areas of the world, to protect their societies from crumbling under climate
pressures.
In other words, we should cut defense spending and give that money to other countries so they can solve their carbon problems. A similar point was made in 2010 by United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) official Ottmar Edenhofer:
But one must say clearly that we redistribute de facto the world’s wealth by climate policy. Obviously, the owners of coal and oil will not be enthusiastic about this. One has to free oneself from the illusion that international climate policy is environmental policy. This has almost nothing to do with environmental policy anymore,with problems such as deforestation or the ozone hole.
It is a rare occurrence when the supporters of the climate change hypothesis tell the truth about why they are pushing their plan.
