Yikes! It’s 2016…and the Arctic Sea Ice Hasn’t Gone Poof!

Posted by Tina

Well they’ve done it again. Predicted scary, dire future conditions that just didn’t pan out. “They” have been doing this for decades. First we were going to freeze to death, then we’d be overcome with overwhelming population growth, then the ozone would cause the rain forests to disappear, then global “warming” would cause the seas to rise to dangerous levels. All of the related dire warnings, used to scare adults and children alike, were predicted to happen by certain dates that have come and gone. 2016 was year certain for the complete disappearance of Arctic Sea Ice. But there’s a problem with that prediction:

Scientists such as Professor Peter Wadhams, of Cambridge University and Prof Wieslaw Maslowski, of the Naval Postgraduate School in Moderey [Monterey], California, have regularly forecast the loss of ice by 2016, which has been widely reported by the BBC and other media outlets.

Prof Wadhams, who is considered a leading expert on Arctic sea ice loss, has recently published a book entitled A Farewell To Ice in which he repeats the assertion that the Arctic would free of ice in the middle of this decade.

As late as this summer he was still predicting an ice-free September.

Yet when figures were released for the yearly minimum on September 10, they showed that there was still 1.6 million square miles of sea ice (4.14 square kilometres), which was 21 per cent more than the lowest point in 2012.

For the month of September overall there was 31 per cent more ice than in 2012, figures released this week from the National Snow and Ice Data Centre (NSIDC) show, amounting to an extra 421,000 (1.09 million square kilometres) of sea ice and making the month only the fifth lowest since records began.

You’d think after so many decades of failure these “scientists” would turn their attention to something that might actually matter. The rest of us need only turn our attention away from politicians that shut down and penalize industries, destroy jobs, create unnecessary suffering and waste a whole lot of money chasing remedies to foolish drivel.

The earth turns, the seasons come and go, and the climate changes in perfect wondrous balance. You’d think it was designed that way!

    CNS News, “Feds: Because of Climate Change ‘We Will Have to Say Goodbye’ to Lady Liberty, Virgin Islands, Yellowstone and More”

    They lie and lie and lie!

    Good heavens, Tina … none of this was going to happen in our lifetimes. All of this is about what kind of world we were going to leave the grandchildren. You’ve already made it plain the grandchildren can take themselves to high ground or die.

    Sorry Libby “all fo this” includes predictions, well…scare tactics, with time frames.

    Conservation is about doing the sensible things we can do to care for this beautiful planet while at the same time being realistic and responsible for preserving economic viability. This is thinking that will positively decide “what kind of world we were going to leave the grandchildren.”

    The Climate Change religion, and it’s many factions, is about extorting vast sums of wealth for redistribution, much of it into global elitists’ pockets, and the establishment of a permanent one party governing system. This thinking puts hidden goals above all else, including the destruction of industry and jobs and higher death tolls in Africa and South America.

    ” You’ve already made it plain the grandchildren can take themselves to high ground or die”

    Ha! I’m making it clear they believe the drivel at a very high risk to their own futures. I’m making clear the difference between care of the planet and scare tactics used to deceive, and in future, enslave and control.
