GASP!: Arctic Ice Now Gone in 30 Years?

First, this story is from AP, which is famous for its global warming fear pieces. Second, notice that they’re saying that ice is melting faster now and will be worse than expected because ‘COMPLEX COMPUTER MODELS OF WEATHER AND CLIMATE’ said so. When the investigator has preconceived conclusions about climate and humankind’s affect on it, any computer model that investigator designs will be compromised, and only data that seems to support a conclusion will be considered. No investigator, thus far, has gone to the Arctic to DISPROVE global warming! They all go to verify it exists; as a result, they find that for which they’re looking.

No computer model, however complex one designs it, can ever account for the complexity of nature—with incalculable variables--many unknown or unconsidered--of every description. Just look at Dr. Hansen’s own errors to see how easy it is to skew collected data towards one’s own opinions; warmaholics don’t like being shown the errors of their ways.

There’s one good thing about the modification of this prediction. Many of us will still be around to realize how wrong they were. One need not wait until then, however. There are already many examples of failed prophecy with regard to global warming catastrophes.

Of course, I predict that global warming will be a long forgotten fad in 30 years; it will waft and linger in our collective consciousness only if we allow politicians to utterly destroy our economic health for the sake of a lie.

Melting ice has been a constant mantra of global warming fear from the beginning. If you want to follow the history of the media’s incessant melting ice fear (and tons of other imagined fears associated with the myth of global warming), please read the GASP! series and the warmlist.

Study: Arctic Sea Ice Melting Faster Than Anticipated

Arctic sea ice is melting so fast most of it could be gone in 30 years. A new analysis of changing conditions in the region, using complex computer models of weather and climate, says conditions that had been forecast by the end of the century could occur much sooner.

A change in the amount of ice is important because the white surface reflects sunlight back into space. When ice is replaced by dark ocean water that sunlight can be absorbed, warming the water and increasing the warming of the planet.
