Hillary Caught Lying Again

Last spring, Hillary traveled to Nuuk Greenland during near record cold – and reported back about Arctic melting. She pulled the same trick again this weekend in Norway.

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton took a first hand look Saturday at the way a warming climate is changing the Arctic, opening a once frozen region to competition for vast oil reserves. Experts here estimate the value of the Arctic’s untapped oil alone — not including natural gas and minerals — at $900 trillion, making it a huge prize for the five countries that surround the Arctic if they can reach it. And with climate warming opening up some 46,000 square kilometres (18,000 square miles) a year that had once been bound in ice, the region is expected to burst open, not just with oil exploration but with East-West trade along a more accessible northern route. Returning from a tour of the Arctic coastline aboard a Norwegian research trawler with scientists and government officials, Clinton told reporters that she learned “many of the predictions about warming in the Arctic are being surpassed by the actual data.” “That was not necessarily surprising but sobering,” she said.

What Hillary actually encountered in Norway – was record cold and a country getting covered with snow in June.

As far as the claim that the Arctic used to be covered with ice goes – in 1935 a Russian ship sailed within 500 miles of the pole in ice free water, well north of Norway.

“Remarkable Changes”

“Our generation is living in a period when remarkable changes are taking place almost everywhere throughout the world,” writes Professor L. Berg, of the Soviet Academy of Sciences. ”‘Certainly these widely distributed phenomena cannot be due to the action of the Gulf Stream, which, however, naturally receives its share of the greater general warmth.” The slow thawing of the Arctic is given as a partial explanation for the record voyages of Soviet ice-breakers to northern latitudes, which have never before been reached by navigating vessels. The Sadko in 1935, in ice- free water of the North Kara Sea, steamed to 82 degrees, 42 minutes of northern latitude—an all-time record.

    Did she have to run for cover from snipers on the runway in Oslo as well?

    I can see the future headlines now: “Norweigians unable to tap oil due to Arctic ice, despite assurances made by Clinton”

    It might be helpful if they could sue her, but somehow I doubt it. If the oil drilling was being funded completely privately, I expect it wouldn’t even go ahead if ice was going to be a problem.

    • DirkH says:

      Norwegians feel very guilty about their oil wealth and squander billions in green projects. They drive electric cars with an oil heater installed so they don’t freeze to death in winter.
      They would feel extremely relieved if nature declined them future wealth.

  3. Lance says:

    I figure they will erect a wind mill on top of the drilling rig for all that untapped energy

    Evidence of more global warming:

    The English language The Local here writes that “Stockholm broke an 84-year-old cold record on Saturday, as the capital’s temperature only reached 6 degrees Celsius, the lowest June maximum daily temperature the city has seen since 1928.”

    Indeed, you could be excused for thinking that the current chill is more like winter than summer. It was actually colder in the capital yesterday than on Christmas Eve. ‘The temperature was a degree lower than it was at Christmas in Stockholm, so it is colder. And it’s windier, too,’ said SMHI’s meteorologist Lisa Frost to newspaper Dagens Nyheter.”

    I’m surprised Hillary’s expulsion of hot air didn’t open the Northwest Passage.

    the KNMI weather bureau said on Thursday.

    Spring 2012 was warm and sunny

    Obviously the Gore Effect now also is a Hilary Effect. Next time, I hope she visits in winter – the weather here in Oslo has been like winter weather for a few days now, after record-breaking heat a week before that.

  7. Is Mrs Clinton capable of telling the difference between warm and cold? Or does she just accept whatever her Greenpeace propaganda briefs tell her to say?

  8. Lizards are cold blooded………..Hillary probably felt quite at home in the snow!

  9. Andy DC says:

    How did Hillary get to Norway? On her transcontinental broom?

  10. Caleb says:

    On the other side of the blocking high, miserable stalled nor’easter in New Hampshire, USA, with dawn’s temperature around 49F and driving rain. Started up wood stove on June 4.

    68 years ago the D-day troops were boarding their ships in another storm. For many it was their last full day alive. They died so we might enjoy the light of freedom. We must not let the light fail.
