According to climate experts, Antarctic sea ice has climbed to record highs due to global warming. They also pretend that the satellite record began in 1979.
But the 1990 IPCC report had satellite data back to 1973, showing a sharp drop in Antarctic sea ice extent prior to 1979.
I merged the two graphs together at the same scale, and it turns out that Antarctic sea ice hasn’t changed over the past 40 years.
“Unprecedented climate change” is a term used by experts to mean “no climate change.”
Whether the cycle is consistent or not – I feel that we’re not far away to finding/understanding that the cycles are polar-opposite between the southern and northern poles; Antarctic sea ice has been expanding for 35ish years, while Arctic sea ice had been on a downward trend for about the same period of time . . well, until that ended in about 2007ish.
And I wonder how far away we are from finding out/understanding that the theory of Catastrophic Global Warming consists mostly of exaggeration, propaganda, lies, and plain old garden variety bullshit.
I hope to live long enough to see that day. I’m 70.
You and me both, though I am a bit younger I have already out lived most of my mother’s side of the family. (They die late 50s, early 60s)
And while the Antarctic returns to the high part of the cycle, Ma Nature is putting the lie to the “Warmest Year Evah!’ B.S.
And on the other side of the world in Northern Africa, Algeria is seeing heavy snow

Mean while the Russians in collapsing economy panic-buy Soviet-era staple amid national shortage “….Bad harvest in Siberia has seen Russia run out of the loved grain….”
There is more to the story. Because of the crash in the oil prices and economic sanctions, the russian rouble is falling in value. We really do not need a hungry Russian Bear again.
(Story contains pictures of pretty girls)
Oh yea and the Russians are pissed at the US for it. They need to look at themselves Perhaps try they should try reining in their Love affair with Putin and his imperialistic designs and obvious desire to start another cold war and threatening Europe with a Natural Gas embargo and they then might return to a time of relative plenty Mother Russia?
Depends on your point of view.
The European Union was dragging eastern bloc countries into the EU country by country. Russia finally got royally P.O. when they went after the Ukraine. Remember Russia doesn’t have good grain growing areas and they NEED the Ukraine in their ‘sphere of influence’ and not in the EU’s.
It doesn’t help that a top Russian scientist, solar physicist Habibullo Abdussamatov predicts the current lull in solar activity will continue and lead to a new Little Ice Age within the next 30 years, and has been predicting the same for years.
Washington’s War Against Russia — Paul Craig Roberts
John Pilger Says The West Is Lying Itself To Nuclear War (wwwDOT)informationclearinghouse.info/article40537.htm
We already know the MSM is just the propaganda arm of the international bankers. We know they promote war because lending money to countries at war allows them to confiscate wealth from the tax payers. I have zero idea how much of what Roberts is saying is true but we do know that the EU has annexed several countries and when they do so they give up their sovereignty.
We also know that in the last year or so the BRICS countries thumbed their noses at the international bankers and created their own ‘World Bank’ and are also amassing gold.
Also there is a story of “… exactly why or how the Gadhafi regime went from “a model” and an “important ally” to the next target for regime change in a period of just a few years…” Remember ex-prime minster Tony Blair got Gadhafi’s son into the London School of Economics. Blair was sent as representative of the UN and JP Morgan to the Middle East to ‘talk to’ Gadhafi. When those talks failed to bring Gadhafi back in line he was shortly there after subject to a ‘regime change’ and assassination.
This from 2011:
Then you have the BRICS countries doing the exact same thing shortly there after. Threatening the dollar and more important the world wide control of the international bankers
I wrote a bit about this a while back in this comment.
A bit more.
The Rothschilds in London set the gold prices for two hundred years. Rothschild supposedly pulled out in 2004. (Much fanfare in the MSM) but Zero Hedge says the price fixing continues. http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2013-11-25/how-gold-price-manipulated-during-london-fix
I have mentioned several times that China has been buying gold like there is no tomorrow and China, Russia and South Africa are also mining gold.
During this time the price of gold was jacked sky high.
Now the price of gold is dropping.
November 2014: Gold Posts Longest Slump in Seven Weeks on Dollar Rally “…This year, gold has dropped 2.7 percent, heading for a consecutive annual drop for the first time since 1998. The price tumbled 28 percent in 2013 as the Fed …..”
So what exactly was the Fed doing? Why is the Federal Reserve Tapering the Gold Market?
Craig Paul Roberts is not the only one warning of a possible nuclear war:
Ukraine’s War: A Prelude to World War III, Says Former Ukraine Ambassador to U.S.
I really hate being a mouse while the elephants dance.
I will also note that a ‘threat of Nuclear War’ may be another …LOOK a SQUIRREL!!!! and another reason to convince the peons a world government is an absolute MUST since it looks like the last reason, ‘Gore Bull Warbling’ is really losing it’s luster.
Both Craig Paul Roberts and the Former Ukraine Ambassador to U.S. Dr. Shcherbak “who was one of Ukraine’s few progressives…” Are both part of the World’s ruling Elite.
The the “Eastern Bloc” was no more once Soviet Union went down the Warsaw Pact dissolved and the countries that were occupied, including Ukraine were free to go their own way. Poland, Lithuania, Rumania, Bulgaria, etc are independent countries and free to trade and treat with whom they want. It should be no different for Ukraine than for any of the other former “Soviet Republics”.
That is the way I look at it and apparently is the way even the Obama administration looks at it too (Now THAT is an anomaly) . Russia is most certainly going to be hurting as long as the price of oil remains depressed.
I doubt the threats of nuclear war for lots of reasons.
I realize that when the Eastern Bloc dissolved the countries were free to do as they please. Doesn’t mean Russia was happy about it. Remember the UK was still grabbing US seamen and impressing them as ‘British Subjects’ and we had to fight another war in 1812 to convince the Brits we really were free.
Also there is a bit more to it. The broken promises the USA made to Russia concerning NATO
From the Council on Foreign Relations:
A Broken Promise? What the West Really Told Moscow About NATO Expansion
THAT is the problem.
rah, I hope no nuclear war but China is not a happy camper, Russia is not a happy camper, the Middle East (who is under Russian and Chinese influence) has a bunch of hot heads running around who hate the USA and we have a fool in the White House.
I also think the nuclear war balloon may be floated again as a distraction from the rotten showing Obama has so far made.
The Soviets couldn’t hold the DDR because they had already lost control of Poland! The US didn’t have to promise them anything though I’m not saying that they didn’t. When Gorbachev repudiated the old Soviet doctrine of using military force to retain the Eastern Bloc Client States in 88 the jig was up. It was fait accompli!
That means the ‘nuclear War’ story is being floated as a distraction.
I tossed the story out here to the wolves to see what others had to say. We know we are constantly lied to so figuring out the truth is a royal A$$ Bi…ch
Oh, Putin doesn’t want another Cold War. Like the World leaders of 100 years ago Putin, and Obama are both corrupt and incompetent enough to start a real hot shooting war if by no other way than by miscalculation.
Putin is almost in the position now of having to start a shooting war just to keep his seat on the back of the Russian Bear instead of finding himself in the tummy of the bear looking out.
A supermarket roof in the Netherlands collapsed due to heavy snow. Tilburg is a large city in the south of Netherlands
Belgaria also got plastered Snow hell in northwestern Bulgaria, announced emergency in Lom and Montana Six-foot drifts blocked more than 1,000 cars and hurricane make traveling in the region impossible The town of Montana started as the Roman fortress settlement “Casta ad Montanezium” also known as Montana. Montana and Lom are in northern Bulgaria south of Danube river, and east of the Serbian border. Lat 43°25′N Lon 23°14′E Elevation – 135 m (443 ft) That puts it equivalent to Newberry, South Carolina Lat: 34.3° N 570 ft, Elevation where it very rarely gets snow.
Tunisia Africa is also expecting cold frost and snow.
And the UK is expecting more cold weather.
From the BBC no less! BBC Weather’s Peter Sloss said the cold temperatures mean it is already colder now than it was during “a good chunk of last winter”, from January to March. “…The record lows come as parts of the UK have already been hit by sub-zero temperatures and forecasters warned of further plunging temperatures over the next three days….”
Do you think God might be trying to tell Pope Frank something?

“Antarctic Sea Ice Same As 40 Years Ago”
That’s is due to the warm water produced by the GLOBAL WARMING, sinking to the bottom of the Ocean & pushing ice forming cold water to the surface !
As reported by a “respected” Global Warming Australian Scientist caught in the Antarctic ice Christmas 2013 & being rescued by the the third Icebreaker send to free those “respected” Scientists
Note the first two Icebreakers couldn’t free them. Too much ice !
So heat “sinks” and cold “rises? You would think that “respected scientists” would have some passing acquaintance with the Laws of Thermodynamics. ON the other hand, if they’re Greenpeace scientists, then I understand.
