Global polar bear population size is about 28,500 when updates are included

Yet another fake climate scare fails to materialise. But don’t expect DiCaprio, CNN, BBC, ABC or their chums at Greenpeace and WWF to be celebrating this one. Their guaranteed silence telling.

Polar bear numbers have risen since 2005, no matter how you look at it:

Svalbard polar bear Jon Aars_Norsk PolarinstituttUSGS estimated 24,500 (average) polar bears in 2005.

IUCN estimated 26,500 (average of 22,000-31,000) in 2015
(assessment completed in July, released in November).

Subpopulation surveys completed or reported after July 2015 (Baffin Bay, Kane Basin, Barents Sea) added ~2,000 bears.

This brings the adjusted average total at 2015 to ~28,500.

Tragic news for climate catastrophists as Arctic sea ice extent looks set to smash all records, despite rising CO2 emissions.

Arctic amplification is the most fundamental tenet of global warming theory, and we are seeing the exact opposite.

Al Gore told the Nobel committee the Arctic would be ice-free by 2014.

Government funded experts, leading journalists, and Nobel Prize winners all say the Arctic is ice-free.

Nature proves Al Gore wrong again

Watts Up With That?

Gore’s “ice free Arctic” prediction from five years ago, falsified by nature itself

The great bloviator has been pwned again, by the actions of nature itself. In Germany, five years ago this past Saturday, Al Gore claimed that the ““Entire north polar ice cap will be gone in 5 years” .

Also, in Gore’s Dec. 10, 2007 “Earth has a fever” speech, Gore referred to a prediction by U.S. climate scientist Wieslaw Maslowski that the Arctic’s summer ice could “completely disappear” by 2013 due to global warming caused by carbon emissions.

He’s been proven wrong on those two predictions, and he’s likely to be proven wrong on a third, when he moved the goalposts in 2009 in this video.

While we had a new record low in 2012 for the summer minimum, the 2013 rebound made Gore’s predictions a certain failure.

Now, on the 5 year anniversary of his…

The Truth About the Global Warming Agenda by Former NASA Climatologist

We’ve got to ride this global warming issue.
Even if the theory of global warming is wrong,

The fate of mankind, as well as of religion, depends upon

Armed with such a faith, we might find

Global Warming as a 21st Century Religion

Peter Lilley – Huffington Post UK – Politics – 22 June 2013

G.K. Chesterton said that “when people stop believing in orthodox religion, rather than believe in nothing, they will believe in anything”. One of the ersatz religions which fills the void in recent years is belief in Catastrophic Man-Made Global Warming. It claims to be based on science. But it has all the characteristics of an eschatological cult.

It has its own priesthood and ecclesiastical establishment – the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change; they alone can interpret its sacred scriptures – the Assessment Reports; it anathematises as ‘deniers’ anyone who casts doubt on its certainties; above all it predicts imminent doom if we do not follow its precepts and make the sacrifices it prescribes.

What most clearly distinguishes the Catastrophic Global Warming cult from science is that it is not refutable by facts. As Parliament enacted the Climate Change Bill, on the presumption that the world was getting warmer, it snowed in London in October – the first time in 74 years. Supporters explained “extreme cold is a symptom of global warming”!

The Met Office – whose climate model is the cult’s crystal ball to forecast centuries ahead – has made a series of spectacularly unreliable short term forecasts: “Our children will not experience snow” (that was 2000, before the recent run of cold winters), a barbecue summer (before the dismal 2011 summer), the drought will continue (last spring before the wettest summer on record). Now they say that rain and floods are the new normal. But – hot or cold, wet or dry – global warming is always to blame.

Alarmists are reluctant to admit that the global surface temperature has not increased for 16 years, despite CO2 emissions rising far more than predicted. They wave this inconvenient truth away with the non-sequitur that this decade is the hottest since records began, so the world is still warming. If you climb a hill and reach a flat plateau you are higher than before – but the plateau is flat, not rising. When cornered, global warming alarmists assert that the current pause is simply the result of unspecified ‘natural variations’. That implies that the pronounced warming over the previous 25 years may have been amplified by ‘natural variations’ in the other direction. In which case, the likely temperature rise for a given increase in CO2 may be less than previously estimated or required to produce the threatened doom. Continue Reading »

A HISTORY OF CLIMATE AND RELIGION :

Deep within human nature there are certain types of people who yearn for catastrophe, they yearn to have significance in their lives believing that theirs is the time when the chickens are coming home to roost and everything is going to go tits up.

300-500 years ago, during the Little Ice Age, some 50,000 Europeans were tortured & executed for “Weather Cooking”.

Dr. Sally Baliunas (Staff Astrophysicist, Harvard Smithsonian Centre for Astrophysics) discusses the history of people’s reactions to extreme weather.

Climate skeptics were seen as witch collaborators during the 16th century.

Afterthought

Upon seeing Al Gore’s “An Inconvenient Truth” I became a firm believer in man-made global warming. However, my belief took an abrupt u-turn when I viewed “The Great Global Warming Swindle”. This excellent documentary provided a concise, and profoundly more ‘scientific’ narrative in rebuttal to Gore’s political alarmism.

The Great Global Warming Swindle (Full) :


The carbon corruption: Iran, Sudan, and North Korea get millions in U.N. carbon credit funds

Climatism comment : So we place economic sanctions on Iran, North Korea et al, on one hand, and then give it all back on the other through millions, perhaps billions in carbon credit funds. At the same time making them look ‘environmentally’ and socially good?!
Everything falling into place nicely for the UN’s wealth redistribution agenda (21).

Watts Up With That?

From the Washington Free Beacon by Zach Noble, how a half page of the Kyoto protocol turned into a free ride for corruption.

Carbon Corruption

Iran, North Korea, Sudan rack up millions by trading U.N. carbon credits

The U.N. is funneling millions of dollars worth of tradable carbon credits to corrupt nations worldwide, including Iran, North Korea, Sudan, and Uzbekistan in an attempt to encourage clean energy projects in the developing world.

The U.N. Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) is defined in Article 12 of the Kyoto Protocol. Western European countries fund energy projects in the developing world in order to obtain Certified Emission Reduction credits (CERs), tradable credits that enable Europeans to count foreign emission reductions towards their own domestic emission reduction targets.

Marx on Monday: Climate Change, Gore and Monbiot

Another cracker from the Marxist! Top read.

“Luckily for us the liberals have never concerned themselves about facts,” Monbiot announced, “but if we’re going to continue to make out like bandits we need to carry on selling the myth of global warming to the masses – and there’s no way we can do that given the evidence.”

One of the problems of being a contributor to this online publication is that I keep strange bedfellows – and none are stranger than that climate change denier and general all round lunatic James Delingpole.

For many years now Delingpole has waged a one man campaign based on ignorance and dishonesty against the plague of climate change, and no doubt yesterday’s alleged news that there has been no global warming will convince his carers to give him access to a computer so that he can cobble together a wholly misleading and untruthful article along the lines of “I told you so!”

But, as usual, Delingpole will fool no decent right-minded people with his libertarian ordure. Those of us who care about the planet and our children’s future will continue to ignore the evidence and remain true to our liberal values.

At first, when yesterday’s news broke that there had been…
