According to GISS, NOAA, and CRU, the 1970’s were much warmer than the 1920’s. Yet we know that the Arctic was rapidly melting in the 1920’s and was rapidly freezing in the 1970’s.
According to global warming theory, the Arctic amplifies warming or cooling, and in fact Arctic temperatures dominate the GISS and Had-Crut v4 temperature record. That makes the claimed relative positioning of the 1920’s and 1970’s temperatures impossible.

Climate Change and its Effect on World Food
by Walter Orr Roberts
National Center for Atmospheric Research, Boulder, Colorado
In February of 1972 earth-orbiting artificial satellites revealed the existence of a greatly increased area of the snow and ice cover of the north polar cap as compared to all previous years of space age observations ….. The Earth may have entered a new “little ice age”.
The CIA said that the Arctic was freezing up in the 1970’s
Early in the 1970s, a series of adverse climatic anomalies occurred. …. The world’s snow and ice cover increased by 10-15%.
The IPCC said that the Arctic was freezing up in the 1970’s. The graph below is from the 1990 IPCC report, and shows Arctic sea ice satellite data which is conveniently omitted from NSIDC graphs that start at the 1979 peak.
Climatologists were so worried about the expanding Arctic ice in the 1970s, that they wanted to melt it.
Climatologists are pessimistic that political leaders will take any positive action to compensate for the climatic change, or even to allay its effects. They concede that some of the more spectacular solutions proposed, such as melting the Arctic ice cap by covering it with black soot or diverting arctic rivers, might create problems far greater than those they solve.

By contrast, The Weather Bureau said that the Arctic was melting down in the 1920’s.
NOVEMBER, 1922. MONTHLY WEATHER REVIEW
THE CHANGING ARCTIC.
The Arctic seems to be warming up. Reports from fishermen, seal hunters, and explorers who sail the seas about Spitsbergen and the eastern Arctic, all point to a radical change in climatic conditions, and hitherto unheard-of high temperatures in that part of the earth’s surface.
Many old landmarks are so changed as to be unrecognizable- Where formerly great masses of ice were found, there ore now often moraines, accumulations of earth and stones. At many points where glaciers formerly extended far into the sea they have entirely disappeared.
The change in temperature, says Captain Ingebrigtsen, has also brought about great change in the flora and fauna of the Arctic. This summer he sought for white fish in Spitsbergen waters. Formerly great shoals of them were found there. This year he saw none, although he visited all the old fishing grounds.
There were few seal in Spitsbergen waters this year, the catch being far under the average. This, however, did not surprise the captain- He pointed out that formerly the waters about Spitsbergen held an even summer temperature of about 3 Celsius; this year recorded temperatures up to 15, and last winter the ocean did not freeze over even on the north coast of Spitsbergen.
This meltdown continued until the early 1950’s. By 1947, the Arctic had warmed ten degrees and was melting “catastrophically.”
By far the largest number of local glaciers in north-east Greenland had receded very greatly during recent decades, and it would not be exaggerating to say that these glaciers were nearing a catastrophe.
Arctic sea ice was disappearing
Glaciers were disappearing.
In fact, glaciers were melting during the HadCrut and GISS coldest years ever.
The Braidwood Dispatch and Mining Journal – Wednesday 28 September 1910
What this tells us is that the published temperature record is a complete fraud. The 1970’s must been the colder than the 1920’s, as the National Academy of Sciences reported in 1975.
The National Academy of Science also reported the 1970’s cold.
Over the last 30 years, various government agencies have doctored the temperature record to elevate the 1970’s to be warmer than the 1920’s. This is patently false, and impossible. The freezing point of water has not changed.
Steven, we are awakening to a harsh reality that none of us wants to admit.
Thank you for your efforts to awaken citizens of the former “free world.”
With kind regards,

AMO chart to go along with your charts.
About midway through you have this: “The 1970′s must been the colder than the 1970′s, as the National Academy of Sciences reported in 1975.”
Why do you have a label that says IPCC satellites?
Also, “they” will just argue that one graph is global temperature and the other is northern hemisphere, although it is true they also spout the polar amplification meme all the time.
The IPCC graph shows pre-1979 satellite measurements which NSIDC pretends don’t exist.
Both hemispheres are dominated by ENSO, and as a result always trend in the same direction.
Exactly Steve. The Nimbus program by NASA/NOAA has been collecting sea ice data for both poles since 1965. Starting in 1972 with the launch of Nimbus 5, excellent data has been collected on sea ice concentrations up until late 1978 with the launch of NASA’s Scanning Multichannel Microwave Radiometer (SMMR) satellite. Their bullshit excuse for excluding the Nimbus data is that the technologies and technique is different so they only include the SMMR satellite data and start their graphs from 1979, which coincidentally is a peak year for sea ice concentrations. Remember who you are dealing with Steve, Their motto is a parody of the OJ Simpson Trial “If the data don’t fit, you must omit”
Funny, they seem to be ok with mixing apples and oranges when it comes to the ARGO floats and new satellite instruments over the last 5-10 years.
Ahhhh, got it. I had seen the IPCC graph before, was just confused by the wording.
The wise men of climate science have stroked their beards and proclaimed the recent warming and melting to be unprecedented. And since unprecedented means never done or known before, we couldn’t have had all that melting in the first half of the 20th century, therefore the temperature records, photographs, personal observations and other records must be incorrect. Winston Smith is still fully employed correcting historical errors.
Everyone knows that before 1979, heat made ice melt (except when it didn’t). And they changed the name to ‘climate change’ because regardless of temperature, CO2 causes ice to melt, seas to rise, poley bears to drown, drought-floods, more and less snow, rapes, war, debt, Republicans, bad hair days…
GISS have published their global and hemispheric temperature anomalies for September, which includes a SH anomaly figure of 0.85c, which as far as I can tell is the highest on record and about 0.38c higher than NOAA after adjustment to the same base period.
This seems to be mainly due to the different methods of calculating the temperature anomalies for Antarctica.
GISS also appear to have published the NH temperature anomaly for October already!
I assume this is a mistake but if it is indicative of how things are going in October, it suggests a very high global anomaly.
Hottest ocean surface temperatures on record.
But the arctic sea ice has grown!
Therefore, they must be lying.
You can’t possibly be as stupid as you pretend to be.
The ocean temperatures displayed on the map are mostly outside the regions of sea ice formation.
Also, they are anomalies, so the actual ocean temperature could still be cold enough for the formation of ice.
The fact that the ocean temperature anomaly in a particular location may be above average, doesn’t make it “hot”.
Finally, the actual figures for sea ice speak for themselves.
Those aren’t ocean temperatures and they are also wrong.
Reblogged this on CACA.
AGW is as fraudulent as the warm climate-induced brush fires now burning in Australia.
What I do not like is that the hysteria has now reached the point that every natural disaster is assumed specifically to be the consequence of global warming,. I mean climate change.
In the case of the Australian bush fires both Al Gore and some busy body from the EU climate panel were able to tell us this was climate change in action and specifically, it seemed the Australians deserved it, from a pompous precious woman called Figeures or something from EU Climate panel. Well of course the Australian military took the blame, and there were never any bush fires that hot before this and …..
as Gator above said ” Everyone knows that before 1979, heat made ice melt (except when it didn’t). And they changed the name to ‘climate change’ because regardless of temperature, CO2 causes ice “ melt, seas to rise, poley bears to drown, drought-floods, more and less snow, rapes, war, debt, Republicans, bad hair days…
