IPCC Shock News : North Pole Disappeared Twelve Years Ago

Stupidity at the IPCC is a timeless tradition.

Ages-Old Icecap at North Pole Is Now Liquid, Scientists Find

August 19, 2000

At least for the time being, an ice-free patch of ocean about a mile wide has opened at the very top of the world, something that has presumably never before been seen by humans and is more evidence that global warming may be real and already affecting climate.

The last time scientists can be certain the pole was awash in water was more than 50 million years ago.

”It was totally unexpected,” said Dr. James J. McCarthy, an oceanographer, director of the Museum of Comparative Zoology at Harvard University and the co-leader of a group working for the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, which is sponsored by the United Nations. The panel is studying the potential environmental and economic consequences of marked climate change.

    The ice age scare was media generated. Climate Scientists at the time did not support that conclusion, and they had a consensus that warming would take place, not cooling.

    The one thing these folks seem to have in common is that they are easily astonished.

    Thanks for your efforts.

    The fact is that openings in the ice frequently crop up all over the Arctic and are called polyannas.
