The Global Warmists Are Always Wrong—When Will They Be Discredited?

“Science is the belief in the ignorance of the experts”. Richard Feynman

    Do not think about, write about or deal with  human behavior without determining the effects of incentives.

    To all the hosannas about Labor Day and the hushed reverence about Unions, one shouldn’t forget to add “The Destruction of Whole Industries.”  or “The Sending Of Whole Industries to Other Countries.” or “The Constant Bleeding of the Taxpayers by Government Unions.” This is why Unions Are Important?

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary. H. L. Mencken

    In the 7 years since The Goracle made his prediction, both Polar Ice caps, and The Antarctic Ice Cap contains much more ice, have grown in size with Antarctic Ice being of record size. Why isn’t Antarctic Ice decreasing, one could ask? 

Report: Ice Cap Growing Though Gore Said It Would Be Gone
By Greg Richter

Despite Al Gore’s prediction seven years ago that the polar ice cap would be completely melted by now, it is actually larger than it was in 2012, Mail Online reports.

"The North Polar ice cap is falling off a cliff," Gore said in 2007 when he was accepting the Nobel Peace Prize for his climate change efforts. "It could be completely gone in summer in as little as seven years. Seven years from now."

      That would be in 2014, still there and growing.

But, the Mail reports, the ice cap has actually expanded by between 43 and 63 percent. An area the size of Alaska that was navigable water two years ago now is covered by ice.

Over the long term, the ice cap is continuing to shrink, according to figures from the U.S. National Snow and Ice Data Center. But as of August 25, 3.5 million square miles of the Arctic Ocean was covered with at least 15 percent ice cover – the highest since 2006.

The ice also is growing thicker, making it less likely to melt, according to data from the University of Illinois’s Cryosphere project.

"It is clear from the measurements we have collected that the Arctic sea ice has experienced a significant recovery in thickness over the past year," Leeds University Professor Andrew Shepherd told the Mail.

"The Arctic sea ice spiral of death seems to have reversed," added
Judith Curry, professor of earth and atmospheric sciences at Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta.

Gore’s office declined to comment, the Mail reported.

Cambridge University Professor Peter Wadhams told the Mail he still expects a drastic reduction in the ice cap by September 2015, saying that less than a million square miles should be covered by that time.

The Mail was skeptical of that, noting, "For that prediction to come true it would require by far the fastest loss of ice in history."

It also contradicts a 2013 report by the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the Mail said. That report said it had "medium confidence" ice levels would "likely" fall below one million square kilometers by 2050.
