100 Years of Doom!

Posted by Gregory of Yardale at November 30, 2009 7:15 AM

The Daily Telegraph has been doing some research and found out that the New York Waste of Times has been panicking about polar ice melt since James Garfield was president.

1881: “This past Winter, both inside and outside the Arctic circle, appears to have been unusually mild. The ice is very light and rapidly melting …”

1932: “NEXT GREAT DELUGE FORECAST BY SCIENCE; Melting Polar Ice Caps to Raise the Level of Seas and Flood the Continents”

1934: “New Evidence Supports Geology’s View That the Arctic Is Growing Warmer”

1937: “Continued warm weather at the Pole, melting snow and ice.”

1954: “The particular point of inquiry concerns whether the ice is melting at such a rate as to imperil low-lying coastal areas through raising the level of the sea in the near future.”

1957: “U.S. Arctic Station Melting”

1958: “At present, the Arctic ice pack is melting away fast. Some estimates say that it is 40 per cent thinner and 12 per cent smaller than it was fifteen years [ago].”

1959: “Will the Arctic Ocean soon be free of ice?”

1971: “STUDY SAYS MAN ALTERS CLIMATE; U.N. Report Links Melting of Polar Ice to His Activities”

1979: “A puzzling haze over the Arctic ice packs has been identified as a byproduct of air pollution, a finding that may support predictions of a disastrous melting of the earth’s ice caps.”

1982: “Because of global heating attributed to an increase in atmospheric carbon dioxide from fuel burning, about 20,000 cubic miles of polar ice has melted in the past 40 years, apparently contributing to a rise in sea levels …”

1999: “Evidence continues to accumulate that the frozen world of the Arctic and sub-Arctic is thawing.”

2000: “The North Pole is melting. The thick ice that has for ages covered the Arctic Ocean at the pole has turned to water, recent visitors there reported yesterday.”

2002: “The melting of Greenland glaciers and Arctic Ocean sea ice this past summer reached levels not seen in decades, scientists reported today.”

2004: “There is an awful lot of Arctic and glacial ice melting.”

2005: “Another melancholy gathering of climate scientists presented evidence this month that the Antarctic ice shelf is melting - a prospect difficult to imagine a decade ago.”

Man. Things are heating up.

I need your help. It appears that the globe is not getting warm. In order to heat things up a bit could you please have your cows fart some more?

If you google 'solar cycle' and select the wikipedia link there is a spiffy little chart of the sunspot butterfly diagram. Just below it is this statement:

"Hale's observations revealed that the solar cycle is a magnetic cycle with an average duration of 22 years. However, because very nearly all manifestations of the solar cycle are insensitive to magnetic polarity, it remains common usage to speak of the "11-year solar cycle".

Notice there is roughly a 20 +/- pattern in the Times chicken little headlines that coorelate the two.

I realize that's a bit too much common sense for a Times editor but the rest of us unwashed knaves it's something that makes you go hmmmmm.

what this demonstrates, if you look at the correlating facts in the articles, is that the climate change theory is true. the effects of the industrial revolution on the climate have been affecting the planet since at least 1881.

thanks, Moonbattery, for presenting consistent documentation from the NY Times

What is NOT shown are the predictions of ICE AGES durring the same period. In the mid-fiftys for instance, FLORIDA had SNOWFALL.

Explain that, o' wise one. Or better yet, explain the FAKED, SUPPRESSED and DESTROYED data that was recently exposed.

So, did the NYT miss the 'global cooling' boat in the 1970s then?
