You Don’t Scare Me Anymore

Posted by Exile on November 15, 2009

There’s a real scare campaign going on over here. It is based on the supposed effects of CO2 and Global Warming, whatever that may mean, and is doubtless designed to curry favour for the coming climate conference in Copenhagen. We are shown, through the medium of TV, pictures of beautiful places that are to be destroyed because of mankind’s folly and use of technology. The imminent destruction of all things nice on this planet. The sky is falling, the sea is rising. We’re all gonna fry.

Bollocks.

Greenland and the ice cover there is getting a fair share of the propaganda. It’s melting. Whoopee. The sea will rise 7.4 metres. OK. That doesn’t bother me. If Greenland warms up that much then it will be green again, as it doubtlessly was when Erik the Red went there at the start of the Medieval Warm Period around a thousand years ago. He didn’t name it “Green Land” for nothing. Canada was beautifully green then too. All year round.  No permafrost.

Here’s something I found about permafrost.

In geology, permafrost or permafrost soil is soil at or below the freezing point of water (0 °C or 32 °F) for two or more years. Ice is not always present, as may be in the case of nonporous bedrock, but it frequently occurs and it may be in amounts exceeding the potential hydraulic saturation of the ground material. Most permafrost is located in high latitudes (i.e. land in close proximity to the North and South poles), but alpine permafrost may exist at high altitudes in much lower latitudes. Permafrost accounts for 0.022% of total water and exists in 24% of exposed land in the Northern Hemisphere.

(Wikipedia.)

If Greenland’s ice melts and if the sea really rises 7.4 metres, then the permafrost, which is basically at the same latitudes, will also melt. That will open the 24% of the presently uninhabitable frozen area of exposed land in the Northern Hemisphere up to agriculture and living space. I reckon that will more than compensate for any land loss due to rising seas.
Not only that, but if it is the CO2 you are worried about, don’t be. The extra agricultural activity will benefit from it and it will bring about record harvests. Plants love CO2. They thrive on it. Add the warmer climate to that and you have a success story.

Strange. Al Gore never mentioned that. Why is that?

I have a couple of other questions for Al Gore and the boys. For example;

MMGW Around the time of the bronze age and for a period of some 4,000 years, the earth was considerably warmer than it is today. This is known as the Holocene Climate Optimum. It was a time of great advancement as far as the human race was concerned. Most of Europe was occupied by people migrating Northward to the new territories. We’re still here.
How the hell did the bloody polar bears survive that one? And the penguins? And all those damn fish you’re all going on about? Answers please, Mr. Gore & co. Straight ones, please.

Ditto the Medieval Warm Period, Mr. Gore.

Why do we never, and i mean never, see pictures of the snow and ice falling by the megaton on the polar regions and Greenland et al every year but always see the annual melting of glaciers on TV? Where the hell does all that ice come from every year?

Why do we never see pictures of the newly forming coral reefs but always see the dying off of the old ones?

Why does no-one ever discuss the re-growth of the rain forests?

All this and more, Mr. Gore. But no. Let’s all get on the doom and gloom bandwagon and push for higher taxes, the stagnation of the third world and jobs for the boys based on misleading and false science promoted through the IPCC.

You bastards don’t frighten me anymore. You’re lying and we all know it.

    The fishes would do just fine if Gore would stop eating them.

    And the warmistas are lying through their teeth:

    No doubt you’ve now (Nov 24) already heard of CRU ClimateGate? I’m wondering what the word is on the street over there. Who’s saying what? And are they now getting any clue that we’ve been lied to, or what?

    Well, let me put it this way.. they know that we know they have been lying to us.. hence this massive television propaganda campaign telling us how all things lovely are going to disappear.. more damn lies. The greater part of the street lost faith in them years ago.

    Oh, and re Greenland melting. From 1983 to 1997 Central Geenland’s average temperature was 37 Degrees F BELOW FREEZING. After 1997, over the next 3 years the temperature DROPPED about 20 Degrees F, and has remained so ever since. (see lead article at this URL)

    It’s the most dramatic change I’ve seen referred to anywhere.

    A similar, but less dramatic, change occurred at Mauna Loa; you know, where all that CO2 is recorded as pouring into the atmosphere.

      Correction. I said
      “From 1983 to 1997 Central Geenland’s average temperature was 37 Degrees F BELOW FREEZING. After 1997, over the next 3 years the temperature DROPPED about 20 Degrees F,…”

      That should have read…
      “From 1983 to 1997 Central Geenland’s average temperature was 12 Degrees F BELOW FREEZING. After 1997, over the next 3 years the (average) temperature DROPPED about 30 Degrees F,…”

      Note that means that Central Greenland is averaging about 42 degrees F below freezing all the time.
