So much confusion, and I just can’t get that poor Polar Bear out of my mind out there on the last pieces of the Polar Ice Cap…and if all that ice is melting then the seas have to rise and all the devastation that will soon be upon us.
“Yes a picture is worth a thousand words, isn’t it? For those of you that visit these other blogs, be sure they see this updated picture and send my regards. While you are at it, ask them at the Telegraph to provide the source data and methodology for the creation of the two images used in the report. They look more like artist renderings than data based 3D models. The images were not part of the WWF report.”
“Another cause for concern is that ice piled up in Greenland and Antarctica, in layers up to one and a half miles thick, is shifting uneasily. “Glacial” used to mean “very slow”: but it now looks as if, rather than melting gradually from the top down, over thousands of years, these sheets will break up long before they have a chance to melt, cascading into the oceans in the form of a million icebergs.”
“The only problem with a project to prove that Arctic ice is disappearing is the fact that it is actually getting thicker, says Christopher Booker.”
“David Neath found the company guilty of discriminating against Mr Nicholson under the 2006 Equality (Religion and Belief) Regulations, because his faith in global warming was a “philosophical belief”. Recalling how “eco-psychologists’’ at the University of the West of England are pressing for “climate denial” to be classified as a form of “mental disorder”, one doubts whether the same legal protection would be given to those who fail to share Mr Nicholson’s “philosophical belief”.”
“If one thing more than any other is used to justify proposals that the world
must spend tens of trillions of dollars on combating global warming, it is the belief that we face a disastrous rise in sea levels. The Antarctic and Greenland ice caps will melt, we are told, warming oceans will expand, and the result will be catastrophe.”
“But if there is one scientist who knows more about sea levels than anyone else in the world it is the Swedish geologist and physicist Nils-Axel Mörner, formerly chairman of the INQUA International Commission on Sea Level Change. And the uncompromising verdict of Dr Mörner, who for 35 years has been using every known scientific method to study sea levels all over the globe, is that all this talk about the sea rising is nothing but a colossal scare story. Despite fluctuations down as well as up, “the sea is not rising,” he says. “It hasn’t risen in 50 years.”
