Today’s Featured Climate Criminals – The Guardian

The Guardian reports that Arctic ice is melting “faster and earlier”

Arctic ice melting faster and earlier as scientists demand action | Environment | The Guardian

What is actually going on is the exact opposite of the Guardian’s claims. Arctic sea ice is melting very slowly, and is nearing a mid-summer high for the past decade.

Arctic sea ice looked like this on June 20 – nothing like the fake picture in their May 5 article.

The Greenland melt season started more than a month late, and has seen below normal melt every day this year.

Every single claim in the Guardian article is incorrect. Their goal is to mislead their readers and direct them towards disastrous policies which destroy the English countryside.

  1. Gail Combs says:

    And just to make sure their propaganda is never refuted by facts, the Groiniad censors comments allowing no real discussion.

    Of course they are also losing paying customers by the droves. Guardian CEO: my newspaper can’t survive in the UK (Ain’t Karma wonderful.)

    ….The chief executive of The Guardian has delivered a rather grim verdict about the newspaper’s future (or lack thereof). ‘At the moment, I believe we could not survive in the U.K,’ says Andrew Miller, …. his verdict is reinforced by the editor, Alan Rusbridger, who (the piece says) ‘can envisage a paperless Guardian in five to ten years’. Rusbridger can also ‘imagine…printing on only certain days’. So the newspaper that came out with the slogan ‘we own the weekend‘ may soon have to add an appendage: ‘Mondays to Fridays… Not so much.’

    ….print sales have halved over the last ten years and on current trends the paper will lose its last reader by the end of this decade…..

    Here’s what the New Yorker says:

    ‘In fiscal 2012, Rusbridger volunteered to take a pay cut—his second—reducing his salary from £438,000 to £395,000… Miller also voluntarily cut his pay…. To run its print and online operations, the Guardian employs 1,600 people worldwide, including 583 five journalists and a 150 digital developers, designers, and engineers. “The toughest critique of Alan is that he has not faced up to the Guardian’s costs,” a longtime executive at the paper said. The newsroom “is too big for a digital newspaper.”

    Miller admits that he does not foresee the newspaper earning a profit anytime soon. Rusbridger said, “The aim is to have sustainable losses.” Miller defines that as getting “our losses down to the low teens in three to five years.” But at some point, if the Guardian does not begin to make money, the trust’s liquid assets, currently £254 million, would be depleted.’…

  2. A few years ago i would read something like this in the Guardian and I would feel I had to do something.

    These days, so much is going against the Guardian that I now just laugh at their antics.

    it is hard to take them seriously any longer because they are so much out on a limb – sitting on a branch with a saw cutting.

    And we say “please don’t cut that branch … please don’t …” and do we really want them to stop printing their garbage any longer now that no one takes it seriously?

    They banned me from commenting
    They were ever so brisk.

      I like the poem; however, I do have to agree with the idea that there is no sky dragon.
      I have to disagree with much more that is in (parts of) the Guardian and much of SKS.

  5. Jim Hunt says:

    I know you’re a big fan of DMI Steve, but does this graph of theirs really look like it’s “nearing a mid-summer high for the past decade” to you?

    • gator69 says:

      Jim is just upset that he was not listed as the climate criminal of the day. He works so very hard at keeping money flowing to bogus climate change studies, instead of starving children.

      Better luck next time Jim.

      • AndyG55 says:

        He is linked in with eth Exeter Uni climate alarmists.. Betts, and that silly lady, who’s name I can’t remember.

        I thought he had been sack for blatant incompetence….
        maybe he’s just been cut back to part time propaganda.

    • AndyG55 says:

      Hey Jimbo, have you done any research on the Arctic temps and sea ice level for most of the last 10,000 years yet?

      Willing to admit that Arctic sea ice is actually quite high compared to the seasonal ice from the earlier Holocene?

      No?? You still haven’t found any honesty or integrity within your putrid soul??

    • darrylb says:

      Jim H.
      Note that Steve’s graph is area and theirs is volume.
      It may not be too out of line, but I would like to see the methodology of determining
      the volume.
      Perhaps the average height of the ice sheet(s) can regularly and readily be determined
      but it would seem that winds, currents and perhaps other factors can readily play a variable role in changing the amount sort of (squished) together. I see no confidence interval associated with it.

    • D. Self says:

      Tell you what Jim, average the DMI and your beloved NSIDC data and call it a day.The arctic is not melting down.

    • Caleb says:

      Why not use this volume graph?

      • Jim Hunt says:

        Coz Tony luvs DMI?

        • Gail Combs says:

          Coz Iceland shared the Danish Monarchy until World War II and Iceland needs real data not the pasturized pap served to the lemings of the world.

          Notice how the countries around the Arctic circle are not falling for the Gore Bull Warbling? They are well aware their countries will sit under a glacier if it turns cold. They also know their agriculture is marginal and even a return to the weather of the 1960s spells famine and unreast.

          In 1976 CIA warned of global cooling bring drought famine social unrest.

          The 1974 CIA report: A Study of Climatological Research as it Pertains to Intelligence Problems

          Pg 7
          … Since 1972 the grain crisis has intensified…. Since 1969 the storage of grain has decreased from 600 million metric tons to less than 100 million metric tons – a 30 day supply… many governments have gone to great lengths to hide their agricultural predicaments from other countries as well as from their own people…

          pg 9
          The archaeologists and climatotologists document a rather grim history… There is considerable evidence that these empires may not have been undone by barbarian invaders but by climatic change…. has tied several of these declines to specific global cool periods, major and minor, that affected global atmospheric circulation and brought wave upon wave of drought to formerly rich agricultural lands.

          Refugees from these collapsing civilizations were often able to migrate to better lands… This would be of little comfort however,… The world is too densely populated and politically divided to accommodate mass migration.

          Why else do you think Putin is desperate to keep the Ukraine in the Russian sphere of influence? Not only is it a warm water port it is also the breadbasket of Europe with rich farmland. The original agreement was the Ukraine would remain in the Russian sphere and the European Union and NATO (usa) broke that agreement. SEE: Luboš Motl of the Czech Republic on the happenings in the Ukraine

          In a new paper Russian solar physicist Habibullo Abdussamatov predicts another Little Ice Age within the next 30 years. Dr. Abdussamatov is the supervisor of the Astrometria project of the Russian section of the International Space Station and the head of Space research laboratory at the Saint Petersburg-based Pulkovo Observatory of the Russian Academy of Sciences. So he is someone Putin would listen to.

          Here are a couple of Russian peer-reviewed papers showing the climate in Russia is cooling long term.
          Holocene climate conditions in central Yakutia [Eastern Siberia] inferred from sediment composition and fossil chironomids of Lake Temje
          Larisa Nazarova, Herman Lüpfert, Dmitry Subetto, Ludmila Pestryakova, Bernhard Diekmann

          The inferred stages of Holocene climate and environmental changes in central Yakutia are consistent with findings from other regional palaeoclimate records. The marked palaeoecological change of chironomid habitats observed in Lake Temje between 5.0 and 4.5 ka BP is consistent with climate-related ecological changes in other shallow lakes across central Yakutia, as inferred from fossil diatoms (Pestryakova et al., 2012). The most prominent feature in the record, however, is the presence of an early to mid-Holocene climate optimum. Using a bioclimatic vegetation model, Monserud et al. (1998) reconstructed the peak of postglacial warming in East Siberia for the time interval between 6.0 and 4.6 ka BP, which is in accordance with the reconstruction in the present study. The study of Monserud et al. (1998) has shown that the Siberian winters were 3.7 °C warmer than now, and between 63 and 73 °C N the summers were 2-5 °C warmer than today. The annual sum of precipitation in Yakutia was more than 200 mm higher, or approximately double, the present-day values….

          Another Russian paper:
          A combined oxygen and silicon diatom isotope record of Late Quaternary change in Lake El’gygytgyn, North East Siberia
          4 George E.A. Swann1*, Melanie J. Leng1,2, Olaf Juschus3, Martin Melles3, Julie Brigham-Grette4, Hilary J.
          Sloane1

          5. Conclusions
          Results here provide further insights into the variability of palaeoclimatic events across Beringia … Observations of large changes in δ18Odiatom of up to 2-3% through both MIS 2 and the Holocene, combined with evidence of a marked cooling trend over the last 900 years, highlights the sensitivity of the sediment record to environmental change and suggest evidence of possible teleconnections between the North Atlantic region and West Beringia….

          The Russian weather has not exactly made the Russians think it is getting warmer either.

          …In a new blow to the climate change lobby, Russia’s top weatherman today announced that the winter now drawing to a close in Siberia may turn out to be the coldest on record.

          ‘The winter of 2009-10 was one of the most severe in European part of Russia for more than 30 years, and in Siberia it was perhaps the record breaking coldest ever,’ said Dr Alexander Frolov, head of state meteorological service Rosgidromet.

          Statistics are still being analysed in detail, but it is known that in western Siberia the mean temperature was minus 23.2C, with more colder days than in previous years…..

      So now Jim changes from extent to volume. Why Jim? Because it’s the only measurement you can find from somebody that shows any decline? Oh, and BTW. I don’t see 2006 on that graph.

      • gator69 says:

        dec·ade ˈdekād noun 1. a period of ten years.

        Jim isn’t the brightest or most honest troll. He still has not explained why he refuses to confront alarmists who make ridiculous apocalyptic statements on a world stage, and why he continues moon over Tony. Obviously he is not about correcting inaccurate statements, and obviously he carries some form of torch for Tony. Jim also could not figure out the message in Lomborg’s TED talk (or lied), and continues to lobby against starving children, and in favor of ice. So why would we expect a cogent argument from such a sick individual?

  6. Andy DC says:

    We’ve been having global warming! At least in the Northern Hemisphere anyhow. It is commonly referred to as summer.

  7. Rosco says:

    Every populist movement requires hard times and a class of people that can be vilified as the cause – from the medieval witch burners to Hitler’s Jew haters ad-infinitum.

    The climate change movement is no different except that the hard times are mythical future prognostications. “Save the planet” is the new catch cry and “Deniers” are the new sinners.

    Nothing new here – hopefully the human race will one day have the intelligence to think for themselves rather than follow just another false prophet.

    • Gail Combs says:

      Hopefully they will also avoid the witch burnings this time around even if they are still blaming others for the weather.

    • rah says:

      You gotta be a real optimist to say something like that after Obama has been elected TWICE and still has significant support despite all the damage he’s done!

  8. DeniesDeniers says:

    The alchemy crowd that frequents this site has had to backpedal in light of recent reanalysis of climate trends over the past 15 years. Contrary to skeptics’ (scientific illiterates’ ?) claims that the earth has undergone a recent warming hiatus, a reanalysis shows just the long, inexorable trend continues. Here’s was actual scientists (not the pseudo frauds that are found on these pages stringing together ad hoc newspaper clippings and trembling all the while at the prospect of a WORLD GOVERNMENT) have to say (excerpted from realclimate.org)

    “Over this interval 1999-2010 the warming trend is actually larger than the long-term trend of 0.175 °C per decade. Yet it is not statistically significant. But this has nothing to do with the trend being small, it simply is to do with the confidence interval being large, which is entirely due to the shortness of the time period considered. Over a short interval, random variability can create large temporary trends. (If today is 5 °C warmer than yesterday, than this is clearly, unequivocably warmer! But it is not “statistically significant” in the sense that it couldn’t just be natural variability – i.e. weather.) – See more at: http://www.realclimate.org/index.php/archives/2014/12/recent-global-warming-trends-significant-or-paused-or-what/#sthash.AmlclQxd.dpuf
