    It’s worse than we thought!!!

    Speaking of worse than we thought. Steve, I own the domain name ItsWorseThanWeThought.com. I had intended on doing something with this domain but have never found the time. The domain registration is coming due soon and I no longer wish to maintain it. Would you like to do something with this domain? If so, let me know and I will gladly transfer the domain over to you. I will give you first dibs on on this domain. Should you not want it, then I will offer this domain to anyone else (except a warmist) on this blog. Same deal, no charge, just transfer the domain to them.

    “Experts warn of self-perpetuating momentum”. So the atmosphere is going to get carried away with itself? Sounds like perpetual motion with a heavy dose of thermal runaway?
    Yeah, experts in propaganda? Must be all that DARK (lol) water. What a bunch of unphysical whackjobs! Steven, its simply amazing to watch teams of so called scientists(propagandists) crank out the pseudoscience. Looks like fraud, graft and pull are the norm in society now. Good luck to all of us “regular folk”.

    I was looking at the Intellicast satellite map of Alaska just this morning and it
    is not showing snow on the ground or ice off the coasts, in fact the off coast part of the image looks as if it’s been edited to show no sea ice as there are a few places they missed with their retouching. What’s up with that?
    I noticed the same with Hudson Bay. I know that Intellicast only covers the lower 48 and Alaska,
    and perhaps they just use an old satellite image for their map background.
    Then I found the Barrow Webcam and it looks as if there’s plenty of ice :

    @ squid2112: It’s snappier without the “its.” Tell you what: I’ll give you a quid, squid. What’s that? It’s worse than you thought? Bummer.

    Arctic sea ice extent is growing rapidly. It already exceeds the 2007-2008 level. If it approaches anywhere near the 1979-2000 average, the ice-free-arctic doomsayers will have to invent another creative explanation for their faulty prognostications. They are hopelessly in love with their AGW theory, despite the fact that it has been falsified seven ways from Sunday. They have grown increasingly desperate in a last-ditch attempt to resurrect their shattered theory, now engaging in the childish practice of blaming every severe weather event on mankind’s evil fossil fuel emissions. It’s amazing they continue to attract a body of true believers who still take them seriously.

      Their followers are also in denial , unable to absorb the facts in front of them because the facts contradict what they want to believe . The followers can’t accept the fact that their heroes are wrong and that they have been mislead because if they do they have to admit they are not as smart as they think they are .

    It’s xmass the time of miracles give them a break and wait until the new year THEN dump on them

  7. Marian says:

    Yeah, the BS factor really does get you alright.

    Even when its’ Winter and just about or completely frozen over. They claim it’s melting all year round.

    The Arctic must now be defying the seasons and the -30C temps because of all that CO2 and methane that’s supposed to be up their and keep melting. Yeah right!

  8. Andy DC says:

    According to Climate Progress, the ice is in a death spiral!!

  9. If some of the ice melts slowly over a few hundred years that’s basically a good thing. If the ice starts growing again, then get worried.

    Yes. I’ll take record minimums over record maximums, which in my locale would be a mile or two deep.

    Here is an idea..Everytime anyone suffers from the effects of cold..ship hitting iceberg,car crash on icy road,elderly dying from hypothermia,broken wrist from slipping on ice etc etc..you can think up plenty more,the wicked developed world should send a bill to the Maldives and Tuvalu.etc for not emitting enough C02, and maybe bill IPCC too if they have a bank account somewhere.No less daft than their ideas.
