New York Times Thinks 1926 Was 50 Million Years Ago

The New York Times said in 2000 that the North Pole was ice-free for the first time in 50 million years

They also reported that it was ice-free in 1926, which must have been 50 million years ago.

    New “Times” old lies!

  2. Scott Scarborough says:

    In 1959 the nuclear submarine the “Skate” and its companion submarine surfaced at the north pole and took pictures of the open water.

    An ice-free north pole is nothing out of the ordinary. But Wadhams, the Arctic specialist, had said something entirely shocking.

    Independent – 27 June 2008
    Exclusive: Scientists warn that there may be no ice at North Pole this summer
    “…..It is quite likely that the North Pole will be exposed this summer – it’s not happened before,” Professor Wadhams said.”
    [Professor Peter Wadhams – Cambridge University]

    The only problem is that if it has not happened before then did the North Pole have ice when the central Arctic Ocean was ice-free?

    Abstract
    We therefore conclude that for a priod in the Early Holocene, probably for a millenium or more, the Arctic Ocean was free of sea ice at least for shorter periods in the summer. This may serve as an analogue to the predicted “greenhouse situation” expected to appear within our century.

    Abstract
    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.

    Abstract
    Calcareous nannofossils from approximately the past 7000 yr of the Holocene and from oxygen isotope stage 5 are present at 39 analyzed sites in the central Arctic Ocean. This indicates partly ice-free conditions during at least some summers. The depth of Holocene sediments in the Nansen basin is about 20 cm, or more where influenced by turbidites.

    Abstract
    ….Nevertheless, episodes of considerably reduced sea ice or even seasonally ice-free conditions occurred during warmer periods linked to orbital variations. The last low-ice event related to orbital forcing (high insolation) was in the early Holocene,…

    These are question we need answers to. Wadhams also says that the Arctic will be ice free in 2016 at the very latest. Just 2 years to go! 🙂 This idiot has created a trap of his own making.

      Here is the NOAA contradicting Wadhams.

      10. Is it true that the North Pole is now water?
      Recently there have been newspaper articles describing the existence of open water at the North Pole. This situation is infrequent but has been known to occur as the ice is shifted around by winds. In itself, this observation is not meaningful.

    NYT also thinks a depression is a recovery.
