Death Spiral Fraud – Part 2

Arctic ice cap in ‘death spiral’

THE Arctic ice cap has melted so much that open water is now just 350 miles from the North Pole, the shortest distance recorded, scientists say.

What they are referring to is a small notch in the ice, shown below


Besides the fact that this is the mother of all cherry-picks,  that notch was due wind patterns, not melt – as shown below

The next image overlays 2007 ice in pink. It shows that the distance of the edge from the pole was almost identical to this year.

In 2008, Mark “Death Spiral” Serreze predicted that the pole itself would be ice-free

1) The north pole issue: Back in June, there was some coverage about the possibility of the North Pole being ice free by the end of this summer. This was based on recognition that the area around the north pole was covered by firstyear ice that tends to be rather thin. Thin ice is the most vulnerable to melting our in summer. I gave it a 50/50 chance. Looks like I’ll lose my own bet and Santa Claus will be safe for another year. There was indeed some coverage a some years back of an open north pole (and I was interviewed). This opening, however, was pretty clearly causes by unusual winds breaking up this ice, and not from melting out.

In 2000, the New York Times reported that the North Pole was ice-free.

Published: August 19, 2000

The thick ice that has for ages covered the Arctic Ocean at the pole has turned to water, recent visitors there reported yesterday. 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

Walt Meier says that the Arctic was ice-free sometime since the last ice age.

“Examination of several proxy records (e.g., sediment cores) of sea ice indicate ice-free or near ice-free summer conditions for at least some time during the period of 15,000 to 5,000 years ago”

Here is a Navy photo from August, 1962 showing open water at the pole.

It is mind-boggling how much fraud and deception these people can pack into one article. Almost every claim in that article was either incorrect or deliberately misleading.

    I am happy they all admit it was all ice free before the Minoan Civilization! Anyone looking at the temperature record can see it was much, much warmer back then and earlier than then.

    First fact is, nearly all women in the world walked around wearing nothing on top…ahem. Except some light stuff with you know what showing uncovered entirely.

    It was WARM!

    Note, too, that all life forms didn’t die, either, they thrived.

    Here is a newsreel vid of the subs at the North Pole:
    Possible could be just normal surface melt, USS Sea Dragon captain says sea ice was 4 feet thick on second surfacing, 2 feet on third, shoal ice on first:

    but lots of holes in ice at were they could surface in open water, just a question of finding with sonar, normal in summer, see

    How can you be a true believer if your view is supported by facts, it’s just plain knowledge. Now if your belief is diametrically different, than all the world can see that you are REAL TRUE BELIEVER!
