August, 2016, I Am A Global Warming Doubter and A Believer In Science: Growing Ice Caps, Losing the First Amendment, and More Failed Global Warming Forecasts

Every month we have enough material to return to a continuing theme in this blog, namely that “I am a global warming doubter AND a believer in science.”This became of interest because of people like Al Gore who fanatically and verbosely claimed that you had to be an idiot to not believe in manmade global warming. It has been my life belief that anyone that is that loud and that obnoxious is hiding something, that rather than argue facts and reality it is better to beat down and insult anyone who disagrees.

As we have dove into the whole issue of manmade global warming, or its new rebranded title of climate change, we found that Al Gore and people like him were guilty of a number of things:
  • Ignoring science and realities that did not support their opinions and positions.
  • Rather than have an adult conversation about climate, these types of advocates like Gore sank to the level of insulting those who dared look at ALL science by calling them a variety of names including racists, homophobes, terrorists, flat earth believers, and other slanderous names.
  • Continuing to insist that politicians step up their intrusions into our lives with higher taxes, more regulations, and more control of our freedoms and standards of living based on a shaky theory at best.
To see the past posts and the multitude of evidence that we have compiled that showed it is perfectly okay to be a global warming doubter and a believer in science, enter the phrase "global warming doubter” in the search box above or go through the monthly historical posts listed on the right side of this page.

Thus, let’s see the latest facts and science that prove you can be a global warming doubter and a believer in science, regardless of what Al Gore proclaims:

1) If manmade global warming was a reality then one would not expect the ice sheets at the North and South poles to be expanding. In fact, Al Gore predicted about a decade ago that there was a more than even chance that by 2015 the Arctic ice sheet would be completely melted due to manmade global warming. Scary stuff.

But in reality, the poles’ ice has not completely melted. It has actually been growing despite mankind pumping more and more carbon into the atmosphere over time:
  • Earlier this year, real scientists reported that the Arctic ice cap was actually expanding by one million square miles of ice.
  • Now NASA has reported that the Antarctic ice sheet is also getting larger and larger over time.
  • More snow and ice is being added than the amount of volume being lost by the Antarctic glaciers.
  • The NASA satellite data showed that the Antarctic ice sheet has grown by more than 112 billion tons of ice a YEAR from 1992 to 2001 when the annual net gain slowed to only 82 billion tons of ice every year from 2003 to 2008. 
  • At this rate of slowing, ice would continue to be added to the South Pole ice sheet for another thirty years or so.
Thus, another example where global warming advocates’ forecast models prove to be totally ineffective and inacccurate. No notable global warming model predicted that the amount of snow and ice at the poles would be INCREASING over time which is what actually happened. Thus, maybe we should all take a deep breath and now have an adult conversation on the climate? Because continuing to yell that the “science is settled” is no longer a valid claim.

2) We have previously reported that many state attorney generals, all Democrats, are actually pressing to prosecute any American citizen who dares to be a global warming doubter. Given that we have proven dozens and dozens of times that there are significant and valid reasons to be a global warming doubter using ALL of the available science, research, and statistics available, this overstepping of by these attorney generals is nothing more than the destruction of the First Amendment.

And most Americans agree with this position that prosecuting anyone who has a different opinion than a politician is not a good thing. According to a recent article on the Fix The Nation website, “According to a new Rasmussen Reports poll, 69% of likely U.S. voters reject the idea of letting the government investigate and prosecute companies or individuals that question the consensus view of climate change. Only 15% of those surveyed said they would support such investigations.

Interestingly, this idea does not even have widespread support among registered Democrats. The poll shows that only 21% of Democratic voters support prosecuting climate change “deniers.” In fact, the poll reveals that only 28% of Democrats believe that the scientific debate about climate change is settled.”

Just like just about every other issue facing Americans today, from gun control to individual freedom to race relations to immigration to energy strategies, the American political class is out of step with the rest of the country. This is what happens when greedy, ego driven, and small minded people get elected, they think they know what is best when they do not even know reality.

3) Above we discussed the reality that the South Pole ice sheets continue to grow at a steady pass even though mankind continues to use carbon based fuel sources. But things are not much different at the North Pole. A recent expedition to the North Pole to measure the impacts of global warming had to be stopped when the ship transporting the scientists was stopped by ice packs near Murmansk, Russia.

The expedition was named the Polar Ocean Challenge and it was trying to do a two month trip to prove: “that the Arctic sea ice coverage shrinks back so far now in the summer months that sea that was permanently locked up now can allow passage through.” 

Apparently that objective failed when there was so much ice that the ship could not get through, likely due to lower than expected temperatures.

4) Let's finish off today’s global warming doubter post with a retro look back. Back in 2008, ABC News warned that New York City would be under water by 2015 due to manmade global warming. They also had a bunch of forecasts that did not quite work out: 
  • New York City would be under water.
  • Gas would cost over $9 a gallon.
  • A carton of milk would cost almost $13.
This was supposed to be life by June 12, 2015. More global warming forecasts that were completely wrong. To see the original ABC News report, go to:

Growing ice at both poles, Americans not wanting to lose their First Amendment rights to overreaching politicians, and more failed global warming forecasts. Why being a global warming doubter and a believer in science is still a rational decision and position to take when you look at ALL of the available realities.
