This Is Your Brain – This Is Your Brain On CAGW

ScienceDaily (Dec. 13, 2007) — Two researchers here spent months scouring through old expedition logs and reports, and reviewing 70-year-old maps and photos before making a surprising discovery: They found that the effects of the current warming and melting of Greenland’s glaciers that has alarmed the world’s climate scientists occurred in the decades following an abrupt warming in the 1920s.

Good news right? They discovered that climate is cyclical in Greenland. A quick stop at GISS would have given them all the information they needed.

Wrong. They found a way to toss logic into the AGW bottomless pit.

The fact that recent changes to Greenland’s ice sheet mirror its behavior nearly 70 years ago is increasing researchers’ confidence and alarm as to what the future holds. Recent warming around the frozen island actually lags behind the global average warming pattern by about 1-2 degrees C but if it fell into synch with global temperatures in a few years, the massive ice sheet might pass its “threshold of viability” – a tipping point where the loss of ice couldn’t be stopped.
“Once you pass that threshold,” Box said, “the current science suggests that it would become an irreversible process. And we simply don’t know how fast that might happen, how fast the ice might disappear.”

    So after this year cold the melting will stop, Greenland starts gaining ice mass and all this nonsense goes away, right?
    What is your prediction for the number of gigatons of ice added to Greenland by the end of the year?

    • So you know what the weather will be like this summer? The polar ice cap has been shrinking for at least 16,000 years. Do you expect something different this summer?

    • Sundance says:

      The combined sea ice data suggest that the seasonal Arctic sea ice cover was strongly reduced during most of the early Holocene and there appear to have been periods of ice free summers in the central Arctic Ocean. This has important consequences for our understanding of the recent trend of declining sea ice, and calls for further research on causal links between Arctic climate and sea ice.

    “….but IF it fell into synch with global temperatures in a few years, the massive ice sheet MIGHT pass its “threshold of viability” – a tipping point where the loss of ice couldn’t be stopped…” EGADS!!!
    (speculation, fantasy, delusion)

    “Once you pass that threshold,” Box said, “the CURRENT SCIENCE (see fantasy/delusion above) SUGGESTS that it would become an irreversible process. (!!! Holy Hockey stick, Batman!!) And WE SIMPLY DON’T KNOW (got that right) how fast that might happen, how fast the ice might disappear.”

    Pure unadulterated BS.

    Look what Phil Jones has to say about Greenland:

    “the warmest year in the extended Greenland temperature
    record is 1941, while the 1930s and 1940s are the
    warmest decades.”
