THE FOLLOWNG NEWS REPORT has been taken directly from THE WASHINGTON POST as reported by the ASSOCIATED PRESS:
"Icebergs Are Disappearing"
The Washington Post
"The Arctic Ocean is warming up, icebergs are growing scarcer and in some places the seals are finding the water too hot, according to a report to the Commerce Department yesterday from Consulafft, at Bergen, Norway.
Reports from fishermen, seal hunters, and explorers all point to a radical change in climate conditions and hitherto unheard-of temperatures in the Arctic zone. Explorations expeditions report that scarcely any ice has been met as far north as 81 degrees 29 minutes.
Soundings to a depth of 3,100 meters showed the gulf stream still very warm. Great masses of ice have been replaced by moraines of earth and stones, the report continued, while at many points well known glaciers have entirely disappeared.
Very few seals and now white fish are found in the eastern Arctic, while vast shoals of herring and smelts which have never before ventured so far north, are being encountered in the old seal fishing grounds. Within a few years it is predicted that due to the ice melt the sea will rise and make most coastal cities uninhabitable."
YES INDEED, Check out Snopes; it agrees that this Associated Press account was published in the Washington Post on page 2; and the date of this AP report in the Washington Post was November 2, 1922. Nothing new under the sun here folks. Mr. Global Warming himself, Al Gore, continues to trot out an 89-year-old tactic.
MANY SCIENTISTS, including physicists, glaciologists and ordinary logical cynics have a strong conviction that the Al Gore's of the roaring twenties and our current crop of Gore-types rake in a fortune using sky-is-falling fallacies in forwarding their Global Warming Religion. The extremely dogmatic Church of Global Warming is quite the rage these days; and takes in billions of dollars in tax-free contributions. Even so, there are still brave scientists who use science, not hype, to take the air out of the Zephyrus windbags who cannot help themselves from blowing more hot air into the global warming theory
AMONG THESE BRAVE SCIENTISTS is Nobel prize winner for physics in 1973, Dr. Ivar Giaever who resigned from the American Physical Society [APS] on September 13, 2011 in disgust over the groups promotion of man-made global warming fears. Dr. Giaever was one of a thousand scientists who publicly have dissented from the Global Warming Theory. The Nobel prize winner said: "I am a skeptic... Global warming has become a new religion. We have heard many similar warnings about the acid rain 30 years ago and the ozone hole 10 years ago, or deforestation but humanity is still around. Global warming has become a new religion. We frequently hear about the number of scientists who support it. But the number is not important: only whether they are correct is important. We don't really know what the actual effect on the global temperature is. There are better ways to spend the money."
DR. GIAEVER'S RESIGNATION LETTER ended with this paragraph: "In the APS it is OK to discuss whether the mass of the proton changes over time and how a multi-universe behaves, but the evidence of global warming is incontrovertible? The claim (how can you measure the average temperature of the whole earth for a whole year?) is that the temperature has changed from ~288.0 to ~288.8 degree Kelvin in about 150 years, which (if true) means to me is that the temperature has been amazingly stable, and both human health and happiness have definitely improved in this 'warming' period."
THE LATEST HITCH WITH GLOBAL WARMING came from the Times Atlas which exaggerated the rate of Greenland's ice loss in its thirteenth edition which just came out in mid-September. Alert scientists caught this publication of Harper-Collins exaggeration that Greenland lost 15 percent of its ice cover over the past 12 years, which was based on 'information' from the National Snow and Ice Data Center in Colorado, U.S.
PAUL CHRISTOFFERSON, glaciologist at the Scott Polar Research Institute [SPRI] at the University of Cambridge, using hard facts about Greenland, said: "We Believe that the figure of a 15 percent decrease in permanent ice cover since the publication of the previous atlas 12 years ago is both incorrect and misleading. We concluded that a sizable portion of the area mapped as ice-free in the Atlas is clearly still ice-covered."
"THESE NEW MAPS ARE RIDICULOUSLY OFF BASE, way exaggerated relative to the reality of rapid change in Greenland," said Jeffrey S. Kargel, senior research scientist at the University of Arizona.
HOWEVER, ALGORISMS ABOUND nonetheless. Last year the U.N. Committee of Climate Scientists came under fire for bungling a forecast of when Himalayan glaciers would thaw. The U.N, money-spenders said the Himalayan glacier would melt in 2035. Scientist worldwide believe the U.N.'s forecast is two hundred years too early.
GREENLAND HOWEVER is an archaeologically layered scientific library containing repeated human habitation. The more the ice melts, the more we begin to discover previously undiscovered human dwelling sites which were present during an actual global warming period that occurred between the 800 to 1300 A.D. time frame.
LAST BUT NOT LEAST: If the entire Arctic ice melts, it would NOT affect water levels anywhere, since the present floating ice has already been compensated for in regard to the level of all the oceans; and whether being solid or liquid it would act like an ice cube in a glass of water. The water level in a glass would be exactly the same whether the ice cube is frozen or melted. It's called science.
