Never Let Facts Interfere With Good Disaster Scare.

Time for the Greenies annual “Climate” pilgimage to Antarctica.

The Antarctic Penninsular is that long, narrow, neck of ice projecting up towards South America

It sits up in the huge circumpolar air and water currents.

Comparing the climate there to the rest of the continent is like citing Florida as typical of the rest of the USA or Tasmania as the rest of AUS.

This Greenie could not find any real evidence of any melting so he takes a tiny part of this tiny piece of the huge continent and blows it up into the required melting.

The Warming of Antarctica:
A Citadel of Ice Begins to Melt
The fringes of the coldest continent are starting to feel the heat, with the northern Antarctic Peninsula warming faster than virtually any place on Earth. These rapidly rising temperatures represent the first breach in the enormous frozen dome that holds 90 percent of the world’s ice.

” …Mercer’s prediction has come true, and a couple of decades before he anticipated. Since he wrote those words, eight ice shelves have fully or partially collapsed along the Antarctic Peninsula, and the northwestern Antarctic Peninsula has warmed faster than virtually any place on Earth… “

The Arctic penninsular is very active volcanically and readers of this blog will recall that the last “collapse” of an Ice shelf there was purely mechanical – it broke off due to circumpolar wind and currents.

Antarctic Ice Explosion

“Antarctic sea ice simply refuses to melt, and stubbornly remains at a very high level. In fact in 2010 it reached its second highest level ever since satellite measurement began over 30 years ago. Normally Antarctic sea ice peaks at about 18.3 million sq km around September 20.

But this year, Antarctic sea ice reached that value already on about August 9 or so – over 5 weeks early! I’m using the graphic below to draw up these statements…. “

“The Sun is up high in the sky over Antarctica and sea ice extent is far above normal. The extra ice reflects sunlight back into space, which has the effect of a positive feedback, reinforcing the extreme cold which the Antarctic is experiencing this spring…. “

1000 Green Non-Jobs

The Chinese are happy, but.

If a politician diverts billions into his own account he goes to gaol.
Unfortunately there is nothing to stop him diverting billions into Green jobs which never happen.

Why the Government Should Stay Out of Green Energy

Brian Sussman is author of Climategate: a veteran meteorologist exposes the global warming scam, and hosts the morning show on radio station KSFO in San Francisco.

” …An Initial Public Offering of stock had been planned for Solyndra in June, but those plans were suddenly scrapped.  In July, its CEO and founder, Chris Gronet, quit.

Then, quite conveniently, on the day after the elections, we learned that Solyndra, the great green hope, was going to shutter its original manufacturing plant and scale back plans for those thousand jobs that Obama had heralded just a few months prior.  The problem?  Fierce competition from rival manufacturers in China and in states where the business climate is more agreeable.

“Solar has become incredibly competitive,” David Miller, a Solyndra spokesman, told The Mercury News.

So, instead of having the 1,000 extra workers Obama said it would hire, Solyndra is laying off 175 people and will cap its workforce at fewer than 1,000…. “

Why The UK Will Definitely Fulfill Its Climate Change Act Emissions Reduction Target For 2020

” …Many years ago somebody had the bright idea to declare a target for UK train punctuality by a certain date. Scrambling for a solution in the face of certain failure, shortly before the deadline the rail companies agreed on artificially lengthening their schedules, thereby guaranteeing they could reach the target even if in practice they had done nothing of the sort.

Then it was Mr Blair’s government’s turn to declare a target on waiting list at the NHS by a certain date…. “

“Carbon” Is NOT “Pollution” – Stop Saying That.

George Orwell wrote…
“And if all others accepted the lie which the Party imposed—if all records told the same tale—then the lie passed into history and became truth. ‘Who controls the past’ ran the Party slogan, ‘controls the future: who controls the present controls the past.'”
– George Orwell, 1984, Book 1, Chapter 3

 “The proles, normally apathetic about the war, were being lashed into one of their periodical frenzies of patriotism.” Part 2, Chapter 5, pg. 150

“she only questioned the teachings of the Party when they in some way touched upon her own life. Often she was ready to accept the official mythology, simply because the difference between truth and falsehood did not seem important to her.” Part 2, Chapter 5, pg. 154

So when we see the the Prime Minister of this country stand up and refer to a wonderful, benign, trace atmospheric gas as “carbon pollution” when it is actually essential for all life on the planet and the biosphere is hungry for it, we can see that Stalinism and “Big Brother” is alive and kicking in 2010.

“She had not a thought in her head that was not a slogan, and there was no imbecility, absolutely none, that she was not capable of swallowing if the Party handed it out to her.” George Orwell, 1984 Part 1, Chapter 6, pg. 67
