Climate Change and Ice

WEDNESDAY 2-27-08…Reports from the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, (NOAA) reveal that almost all of the allegedly lost ice has come back. The report shows that ice levels that had shrunk from five million square miles in January of ‘07, to just 1.5 million square miles in October are almost back to their original levels. I wonder why we’re not seeing those reports in the mainstream press or on the evening news?

A report last week in the London Daily Express showed that there is nearly a third more ice in Antarctica than usual. Again, our mainstream press isn’t interested. In that Daily Express article, it pointed out that the previously used photograph of the polar bear clinging to a melting iceberg (a photo used by Al Gore in his “Inconvenient Truth” lectures) was actually taken during the month of August three years ago, when melting is normal.

That was a little “inconvenient truth” that Al Gore decided wasn’t really necessary for you to know.

Scientist Dr. Henry Clemmey, Leeds university academic says “Climate change is something that we can’t stop or prevent –but we do need to be knowledgeable about its potential effects.” He says “I think that so many debates about climate change take place against an ignorance of both time and scale in terms of the earth’s evolution.”

An interview appearing in the Manchester Evening News, Dr. Clemmey concludes “If you look back through the history of the planet, you will find a whole series of cycles. You will also see that these cycles have taken place before, and will take place again in the future.”

Again….our mainstream press isn’t interested in what Dr. Clemmey has to say. Nor were they interested in what General Motors Vice Chairman Bob Lutz had to say about global warming. He told reporters in Texas “global warming is a total crock of s—!” And I say, if global warming doesn’t kick in soon, we’re all gonna’ freeze to death.
