Mr Gore, speaking at the Copenhagen climate change summit, stated the latest research showed that the Arctic could be completely ice-free in five years.
It was the Times that reported it. Of course this is a matter of discussion between Anthropogenic Global Warming Theorist and those who dispute this theory.
Even if Mr. Gore’s cronies are correct, which is doubted by many , when you consider that serious monitoring of Arctic ice levels only started in 1972, and that explorers successfully navigated these seas in relatively archaic ships 60 and 100 years ago, how can anybody honestly claim that today’s conditions in this region are in any way unprecedented, historic, or grim?
Another position being loudly touted states: Evidence that the Arctic Ocean was ice-free 3 million years ago, when average global temperatures were similar to projections for 2100, may shed light on how the far north will change as the Earth warms, a U.S. scientist said.
Fossilized shells recovered from the seabed show the Arctic Ocean was ice-free for at least part of the year during the mid- Pliocene era about 3 million to 3.3 million years ago, U.S. Geological Survey researcher Marci Robinson said in the journal Stratigraphy. The average temperature globally was about 3 degrees Celsius (5.5 degrees Fahrenheit) warmer than today, in line with United Nations forecasts for 2100, she said.
Statements like that kind of opens wide the question of us humans causing temperatures to rise due to carbon emissions doesn’t it?
Is something missing in our history books?
Who was burning fossil fuels 3 million years ago to cause the temperatures to rise sufficiently to melt the polar ice cap?
Are the changes currently being measured (both up and down) just a part of the normal planetary system? Mr. Gore should check his facts and extract his extremities forthwith me thinks!
Just ME in T says:
Time for a rethink!
Time for all the papers to be put on the table!
Time to acknowledge that we do not as yet have all the answers!
Time to slow down and THINK carefully
before we allow our Government to ties us into
any formal WORLDWIDE agreement to barter for
or cut carbon emissions for financial reasons.
Till next time, stay safe and pray, please pray for our politicians and scientists and members of the press, and any other’s who are caught up, in what appears to be a very tangled web, some of it possibly deceitful. Dare I postulate there are financial gains to be made in all of this? Arghhhhhh —– that wretched $$$$$
