Now That It Is Spring... "Arctic Is Melting! "

This is the second time I see something of the sort this month.

As you all know, with the coming of spring in the North Hemisphere, comes the melting of ice.

So why not seize the opportunity and make doomporn about it?

This month, right after the Earth has passed the Spring Equinox, climate "scientists" decided to go on and not only warn that the Arctic is melting "faster", but also that this " sudden" melt will bring four dooms:

1: More heat in summer...

A recent study published in the journal Science found that a more wavy and elongated jet stream in the summer "has made weather more persistent and hence favored the occurrence of prolonged heat extremes".


2: Less cold waters at subarctic areas:

Fishermen and fishing boats may have new routes open to them due to a less icy Arctic, the report acknowledges. But at the same time, the composition and distribution of species could change with warming waters


3: Raise sea level:

The melting of ice on land in the Arctic - whether from glaciers and ice caps in the Arctic or the Greenland ice sheet - contributes to sea level rise that does not stay in the Arctic, but rather spreads around the world. Greenland is of course the biggest potential contributor, since, if it were to melt entirely, it would cause six metres of sea-level rise.


4: Amplify global warming:

Finally, changes in the Arctic are expected to amplify global warming itself. The principal way this could happen is through the thawing of frozen ground or permafrost, which covers much of the Arctic, and which contains huge stores of frozen carbon.


Source: Warming of the Arctic will have global consequences

Is this the new tactic of AGW pushers? Wait that Spring arrives, and when it arrives and its effects start getting visible on the Arctic, build doomsday predictions upon it?

This is the second time I see something like this. A week ago my local news network had warned us about the "heat record" we've broken this spring - it was actually (and quite simply) the first hot day since the start of the year... And since it starts in the middle of winter, it was not hard to beat...

I wonder how many of those climate scientists have govt grants? and i also wonder how many of them got threatened with having their grants pulled? Surely our trustworthy govt overlords would never twist arms to get people to push an agenda...

Indeed.

Fun fact:


US takes chairmanship of the Arctic Council on April 24


Hm.

I must say, i find it absolutely baffling how anyone can deny that the arctic and antarctic ice and glaciers all over the world are melting fast and dissapearing for good.

You guys don't so muich deny ignorance as embrace it with both arms

Fact is that because YOU dont agree with it (for whetever reason), you listen to the tiny handful of people/scientists who claim that its not happening rather than the vast majority who all agree that the ice is melting and the earth is warming.

Sure, there are glaciers melting all over the world. And there are glaciers growing all over the world, too.

This is not the point here. Focus. The point is that these climate "scientists" are using Spring as a method to push their AGW.

Again, bending the facts to fit the theory: spring melts ice, but when that happens, ignore the "spring" part.

Climate goes through cycles this is only a natural cycle overtime the ice will return and retract ect ect. But I guess, its fun being wide eyed alarmed and checking both sides of your computer chair.

Could you please provide some evidence on that part, that is an important claim.

Thank you...

Oh, climate goes through cycles!!?? WOW!

Who knew that? Have you shared this revelation with the tens of thousands of climatologists and other scientists who are studying global warming effects?...They need to know this, you super genius you. Dont keep this ground breaking info to yourself.

I do not advocate being alarmist...but i do belive in facing up to truths

I see.

Someone is worried because they are quickly running out of snowballs to throw out to declare it is all a hoax.

Forget all the scientific talk about maximum, minimum, all time highs (which should actually be real easy to understand) this instead lets have a preemptive thread so when they are reported heads can be stuck in the sand until you have snowballs to throw again.

You sound angry.

Chill out, mate. Science is fun. It's not sports, you don't need to slash out at the rest of ATS.

I know about maximums and minimums - trust me, I have alot to say on this topic.

The article was clearly not about maximum / minimums. It simply made the statement that the whole of Arctic would melt, and timed this declaration with the arrival of spring.

Nope..not in the slightest...just mocking people who come out with idiotic things like "uuuh...but climate goes in cycles". As if that is 100% proof that man has had no effect whasoever and as if no one knew this.

not angry. In, fact, having a great day

Antarctic sea ice at its highest level since 1988, report in 'climate depot' earlier this year, and the Antarctic is now going into winter mode, so I presume as its colder down there, the sea ice will melt?

The Earth is off balance. The Sun is too far North. This of course would cause the arctic to melt even faster. All of these second sun videos shouldn't be ignored. Something is approaching this planet.

Ok look here. I never said that my statement equals 100% man has had no effect on climate whatsoever. Theres a line between sarcasm and blatant disrespect your treading it.

I hope you are joking... Please tell me you are joking!

Nothing is approcahing the planet. If something was then the millions of amateur astronomers and the tens of thousandsa of astoronomical societies would have seen it. Yes, even if it was a brown dwarf or whatever.


As for saying "climate goes through cycles"...to me, thats like someone claiming a person was killed and someone going "but people die naturally"

Oh..ok, case closed then!
