Ο Βόρειος Πόλος χωρίς πάγο ;

Οι επιστήμονες αναμένουν και φέτος ρεκόρ μείωσης πάγου στον Αρκτικό ωκεανό. Μάλιστα δεν αποκλείουν τον Σεπτέμβριο του 2008 να δούμε για πρώτη φορά στην ανθρώπινη ιστορία έναν Βόρειο Πόλο ελεύθερο απο πάγο!!

Η μείωση του πάγου στον Αρκτικό ωκεανό έχει "ανεβάσει ταχύτητα" από το 1996 όπως φαίνεται στο εξαιρετικό animation που θα βρείτε εδω, με αποκορύφωμα το περυσινό καλοκαίρι, όπου ο θαλάσσιος αρκτικός πάγος παρουσίασε μείωση της ταξής του 65% σπάζοντας το αμέσως προηγούμενο ρεκόρ του 2005!

Ολόκληρο το άρθρο με εικόνες και animation εδω.

Η συνηθισμένη τρομολαγνεία των "εκλεκτών" (του τύπου του πάμπλουτου ραδιενεργού γενοκτόνου των Βαλκανίων και βεντέτας των ψευτοοικολόγων), που μας ενοχοποιούν συλλογικά για ό,τι τους κατέβει στο κεφάλι, όπως για τις φυσικές κλιματικές αλλαγές:
Τις ίδιες μέρες ανακοινώθηκε μεγάλης έκτασης υποθαλάσσια ηφαιστειακή δραστηριότητα στην περιοχή, που όμως "περιέργως" δε συσχετίστηκε με τις αυξομειώσεις του πάγου, όπως και η ΑΥΞΗΣΗ του 90% των παγκόσμιων πάγων στην Ανταρκτική (βλ. παρακάτω).
Αλλά ποιος κερδοσκόπος της υπερθέρμανσης δέχτηκε ΔΗΜΟΣΙΟ ΔΙΑΛΟΓΟ με κάποιον αμφισβητία;
The Arctic ice just might be affected by a wave of volcanic eruptions on the ocean floor under the Arctic ice cap. AFP reports on the recently-documented volcanoes, but oddly makes no mention of the possible effect on apocalyptic predictions of global warming.
Isn’t it funny how not one word of this possibility was ever mentioned in the original article? Why is that? Do not hold your breath waiting for the major media to trumpet this dramatic new discovery and the implication that anthropogenic global warming theory has nothing to do with polar bears.
This would be similar to what happens near the Antarctic peninsula where ice sheets have been cracking even as the total ice extent for the vast continent has risen to record levels. As of the latest report, we are running 1.5 million square KM ahead of last year when we set the record (since satellite tracking began in 1979). We have more Arctic Ice this year too. See the current status side-by-side with 2007 here. This arctic volcanic activity along with the delayed melting from the warm Atlantic water intrusion as identified by Polykov and Francis here may have been responsible for the recent rapid arctic ice decline even as global temperatures cool. Finally as for the Northwest Passage being unprecedented before 2007, see this post suggested by Tom Nelson here . He notes how the Northwest Passage was navigated in many prior years including 1906, 1940, 1941, 1942, 1944, 1957, 1969, 1977, 1984, 1988, and 2000.

Northwest Passage: still impassable
A team of NASA and university scientists has detected an ongoing reversal in Arctic Ocean circulation triggered by atmospheric circulation changes that vary on decade-long time scales. The results suggest not all the large changes seen in Arctic climate in recent years are a result of long-term trends associated with global warming.
This was written November 13, 2007 as a press release by NASA located here http://www.jpl.nasa.gov/news/news.cfm?release=2007-131
The authors have the audacity to suggest:
“Our study confirms many changes seen in upper Arctic Ocean circulation in the 1990s were mostly decadal in nature, rather than trends caused by global warming,” said Morison.
But the mainstream media did not give it “exclusive” status since it doesn’t fit the template.

Northwest Passage: still impassable
But the media never lies. They’re fair and balanced…right?

This is very upsetting.
I had booked passage on the USS Al Gore for a close look at the boiling seas around the north pole.

So much for that North Pole water ski spectacular I was planning. I’ll have to tell the topless ski babes that they’ll have to wait until The Goreacle & Hansen have managed to make Mother Gaia adjust her behavior to their unassailable data.

And of course, the daily snapshot of sea ice. Lotsa ice there, well into Summer.

have organized a bunch of tour ships to sail the northwest passage. Sadly, Watts Up With that reports the Northwest Passage is totally impassable. Last year a warmist tour to see the supposedly ice free lands of Antarctica got crushed between...

Harsh Winters Force Mongolian Horsemen to Abandon Nomadic Life

By Hazel Southam, UK Telegraph

Mongolia is one of the toughest places on earth to live and can boast the coldest capital - Ulaanbaatar - on the planet. Temperatures drop to at least -30C in winter. The country is frozen from November to March. But four climatic disasters, known as ‘dzuds’, since 1999 have made life almost impossible for even the toughest of Mongolia’s nomadic people who roam over a country three times the size of France. Three particularly harsh winters since 2000 have killed a third of the nation’s livestock.

In 2001, the temperature dropped to a record-breaking -57C. Some 15,000 herders lost all of their animals through starvation and cold, and with them, their money and food. More than a quarter of the 2.6m population has left the vast rural areas, and have fled in desperation to the cities.

Mongolia’s image as a land of nomadic herdsmen may be about to change for good as harsh weather conditions threaten their traditional way of life and bring more herdsmen off the land into an uncertain urban future.

Atlantic Basin Hurricane Counts Related Significantly to Solar Activity

By Paul Biggs, Climate Realist Blogspot

There is a new GRL paper in press by Elsner and Jagger entitled: ‘United States and Caribbean tropical cyclone activity related to the solar cycle.’

The authors report on a finding that annual U.S hurricane counts are significantly related to solar activity. The relationship results from fewer intense tropical cyclones over the Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico when sunspot numbers are high. The finding is in accord with the heat-engine theory of hurricanes that predicts a reduction in the maximum potential intensity with a warming in the layer near the top of the hurricane. An active sun warms the lower stratosphere and upper troposphere through ozone absorption of additional ultraviolet (UV) radiation. Since the dissipation of the hurricane's energy occurs through ocean mixing and atmospheric transport, tropical cyclones can act to amplify the effect of relatively small changes in the sun's output thereby appreciably altering the climate.


This same factor could well be a contributing factor in last winter’s record snows and the unusual number of thunderstorm and tornadoes and the heavy rains of the spring.
A cooling upper atmosphere makes the atmosphere more unstable and aids convection.
