Another New Study Indicates Polar Bears Benefit From Sea Ice Loss Due To Enhanced Prey Accessibility

Another New Study Indicates Polar Bears Benefit From Sea Ice Loss Due To Enhanced Prey Accessibility

Share this… Facebook TwitterPolar bear populations are stable to increasing with improved body condition in the 21st century.  The alarmist narrative that says polar bears are threatened by sea ice losses is strongly at odds with real-world observations. A new study assesses the body condition of polar bears in the Gulf of Boothia – an […]

New Paradigm-Shifting Study Finds Annual CO2 Flux Is Driven By Temperature-Dependent Sea Ice Flux

New Paradigm-Shifting Study Finds Annual CO2 Flux Is Driven By Temperature-Dependent Sea Ice Flux

Share this… Facebook TwitterAnnual carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane (CH4) change rates lag behind changes in sea ice extent by 7 months and 5 months, respectively. This robust correlation is consistent with the conclusion that CO2 (and CH4) changes are responsive to temperature, not the other way around. It is commonly believed that the annual […]

Polar Opposite: Polar Bears Require Thin Ice Or Open Water To Survive

Polar Opposite: Polar Bears Require Thin Ice Or Open Water To Survive

Share this… Facebook TwitterAbundant polar bear remains dating to 8000 to 9000 years ago have been found on Zhokhov Island, which is today surrounded by year-round sea ice (even in summer). This Arctic latitude (76°N) is too cold and thus too ice-covered for polar bears to inhabit today. During the Early Holocene CO2 concentrations ranged […]

Since 2000 The Arctic's Hudson Bay Has Cooled -0.35°C With 10 Of 15 Sites Gaining Sea Ice

Since 2000 The Arctic’s Hudson Bay Has Cooled -0.35°C With 10 Of 15 Sites Gaining Sea Ice

Share this… Facebook TwitterA new study (Gupta et al., 2022) indicates that from 2000-2019 73% of the 15 sites considered have been cooling and 67% have experienced a lengthening of sea ice duration. Canada’s Hudson Bay extends into the Arctic Ocean and its coasts are teeming with polar bears. Scientists report 11 of 15 Hudson […]

Recent Greenland Cooling And Only 'Limited Retreat' Of Glaciers Since The Little Ice Age

Recent Greenland Cooling And Only ‘Limited Retreat’ Of Glaciers Since The Little Ice Age

Share this… Facebook TwitterMore evidence surfaces showing Greenland isn’t cooperating with the global warming narrative. The notorious “Climategate” e-mail exchanges between activist scientists like Drs. Phil Jones and Tom Wigley revealed how grave a concern it was in 2004 that “GREENLAND HAS BEEN COOLING SIGNIFICANTLY” since the 1950s. “…a warming trend occurred in the Nuuk […]

New Study: The 2016-2020 Antarctic Sea Ice Decline May Be Traced To Natural Processes

New Study: The 2016-2020 Antarctic Sea Ice Decline May Be Traced To Natural Processes

Share this… Facebook TwitterDefying climate models, the sea ice surrounding Antarctica steadily increased during the 37 years from 1979-2015. Even after many decades of studying climate processes and a supposed “consensus” that hemispheric-scale sea ice should decline in a rising CO2 concentration world, climate models cannot simulate the causative mechanisms for sea ice variability. “Over […]

Hundreds More Papers Published In 2021 Support A Skeptical Position On Climate Alarm

Share this… Facebook TwitterIn 2021, several hundred more scientific papers were published that cast doubt on the position that anthropogenic CO2 emissions function as the climate’s fundamental control knob…or that otherwise serve to question the efficacy of climate models or the related “consensus” positions commonly endorsed by policymakers and mainstream media sources. These scientific papers […]

New Study: Northern North Atlantic Sea Ice Cover No Less In 2000 CE Than In 1600s - 1800s CE

New Study: Northern North Atlantic Sea Ice Cover No Less In 2000 CE Than In 1600s – 1800s CE

Share this… Facebook TwitterThe northern North Atlantic’s sea ice records derived from ice cores and marine sediments consistently affirm there was far less sea ice during the Early/Mid Holocene than in 2000 CE. Even 17th to 19th century sea ice coverage was similar to (or less than) today’s. A 2020 study (Geirsdóttir et al.) indicated […]

New Study: There Was Less Arctic Sea Ice In The 1700s-1800s Than From 2002-2006

New Study: There Was Less Arctic Sea Ice In The 1700s-1800s Than From 2002-2006

Share this… Facebook TwitterPaleoclimate data indicate there was less Arctic sea ice during the pre-industrial period than in modern times, or when CO2 concentrations were 100 ppm lower than today (280 vs. 380 ppm). Scientists (Diamond et al., 2021) assert that during the 18th and 19th centuries Arctic sea ice extent minimum (September) values averaged […]

More Evidence Antarctica Has Been Cooling, Regional Sea Ice Increasing For Over 40 Years

More Evidence Antarctica Has Been Cooling, Regional Sea Ice Increasing For Over 40 Years

Share this… Facebook TwitterA new study (Kumar et al., 2021) reports the “overall SST trend in the Weddell Sea is negative” since 1979 and this has occurred in tandem with “the expansion of SIE [sea ice extent].” Another new study (King et al., 2021) reports the oldest temperature stations in Antarctica show a cooling/non-warming trend […]

In The 1970s Climate Modification Proposals Included Purposely Melting Arctic Sea Ice With Black Soot

In The 1970s Climate Modification Proposals Included Purposely Melting Arctic Sea Ice With Black Soot

Share this… Facebook TwitterIn his 1975 book The Genesis Strategy, the late climate scientist Dr. Stephen Schneider reviewed contemporary climate modification proposals to reduce the severe 1960s and 1970s droughts, floods, and extreme weather…which were at that time associated with the ongoing global cooling. One proposal was to eliminate the Arctic’s sea ice by having […]

Seal Numbers Increased 700% Since The 1970s - But Models Project Future Declines Due To Sea Ice Loss

Seal Numbers Increased 700% Since The 1970s – But Models Project Future Declines Due To Sea Ice Loss

Share this… Facebook TwitterSea ice has been declining in the Canadian North Atlantic since the 1970s, and yet the harp seal population has been estimated to have risen from a little over 1 million in 1971 to about 7.5 million in 2012 to 2019. But model projections suggest the seal populations will decrease in the […]
