The truth about global warming, relabeled now as climate change because of the fact that much of the northern hemisphere was covered in snow and ice over the winter, is staring to come out heavily with reports and admissions from officials tied with the ‘climate change conspiracy’.
We have everything from the hard evidence that the official temperature numbers have been systematically manipulated to UN officials admitting that the whole climate change scare it really just a cover to kill off capitalism.
Obama once declared global warming a national security threat because it proliferates terrorism.
“I am here today to say that climate change constitutes a serious threat to global security, an immediate risk to our national security, and, make no mistake, it will impact how our military defends our country,” stated our President.
Ok, if that’s the case, let’s send all of DHS and the NSA down to Antarctica. Doing so would surely be better for our national security!
NASA has updated its data from satellite readings, revealing that the planet’s polar ice caps have not retreated significantly since 1979, when measurements began.
Indeed, the polar ice has, for almost three years now, remained above the 35 year average.
The data shows that the ice caps remained at more or less the same level until 2005, when they slightly receded for a few years.
However, the 1979 measurements represented the tail end of a 30-year cooling period, meaning that a higher level of ice was taken as the baseline measurement. Everything since has been compared to those figures.
The figures show that by 2012, sea ice was down almost 10 percent from the figures measured in 1979. This was used by warming proponents to forecast disaster.
Those alarmists, however, ignored the fact that total polar ice had only receded by a modest amount, no where near ten percent.
Al Gore used the 10 percent figure and even warned that the Arctic ice cap could completely disappear by 2014.
In reality, by 2012 ice quickly came back and even surpassed the 1979 readings, reaching a new record maximum in the Antarctic in 2014. Since that time it has remained above that previous baseline.
According to NASA’s latest data, it is now 5% above the mean average.
This is not to say that the ice will not retreat again at some point. It is generally considered that the Earth’s temperatures are still rising slowly since the so called ‘little ice age’ which ended in the mid 1800s. The rise is thought to be due to a combination of natural and, to a much lesser extent, human influence.
Still, alarmist headlines continue to be used in respect to polar ice, with some claiming that satellite data shows ice is melting at an unprecedented rate.
Not so, according to NASA’s newest data.
NASA is on it’s best behaviour with regards to climate data, since it emerged recently that the agency may have altered weather station data to falsely indicate warming & sea rises.
Critics, or “deniers” as the mainstream media would call them, charge that the data that has been so relied upon to ‘prove’ global warming’s trend for years, has been in fact manipulated.
