Another Brilliant Prediction From 1969

 

John Holdren is still touting the ice free winter nonsense 40 years later. The definition of insanity is trying the same thing over and over and hoping for different results.

And of course the punch line. Nothing ever changes.

    Perhaps if he had access to satellite data and advanced computer modelling he would not have made such a claim.

    • Like Maslowski predicting an ice free Arctic in 2o13?

      • Brendon says:

        I’d say Maslowski is on the fringe given that other groups modelling forecast various figure between 2040 and 2100.

        But go ahead and cherry pick his forecast if casting doubt is all your are trying to do.

        A mroe balanced approach would be to consider the efforts of the various teams.

      Well I guess we’ll just have to wait and see if those things become available and the results change his opinion.
      Oh wait…

    Here is a revealing quote from this “scientist”:

    “Our projection of 2013 for the removal of ice in summer is not accounting for the last two minima, in 2005 and 2007,” the researcher from the Naval Postgraduate School, Monterey, California, explained to the BBC.

    “So given that fact, you can argue that may be our projection of 2013 is already too conservative.”

    Too conservative?

    LOLOLOLOLOL

    He is already wrong,as there has been a recovery trend since then.

    Alarmism has been around since the dawn of humanity.
    Today it has developed into well organized cult that involves all our role models.
    As a consequence people get dumb an deaf for the never ending barrage of propaganda from the MSM and many of them simply have stopped reading the news.

    There is a reason why for example CNN and the NYT are losing viewers and readers.
    And it’s not only the fault of the internet and the blogs.

    Another media bail out anyone?

      That’s about how long acorns have been falling from trees. 😉

    I thought it was because they provide a heavily edited version of what is going on the world.And they are miserable leftist retards.

    It’s interesting how little the ideas about global warming have changed over the past several decades. Of course, they postulated about the cooling effects of sulfates and particulates back then, and like now, they barely get mentioned (only appear in the last paragraphs).

    So Brendon, at what point do you know that the “advanced computer modelling” is good enough to make accurate predictions? By what criteria do you discern between 1969, 2009, or its guessed-at state as at 2049?
