As the science crumbles, the statists shut down debate

Antarctic ice build-up confounds computer models.

The levels of Antarctic sea-ice last week hit an all-time high – confounding climate change computer models which say it should be in decline.

America’s National Snow And Ice Data Center, which is funded by Nasa, revealed that ice around the southern continent covers about 16million sq km, more than 2.1 million more than is usual for the time of year.

It is by far the highest level since satellite observations on which the figures depend began in 1979. In statistical terms, the extent of the ice cover is hugely significant.

So how are the global warmists responding to the crumbling of their scientific paradigm? The same as always: cut off debate.

Vatican silences scientist for challenging “settled science”. 

Okay, the last incident occurred in 1610, when Galileo refused to accept church teachings on how the universe was ordered, but the pattern is the same: the more an authority is vested in a core belief, the more strenuously it silences dissent. Eventually, that no longer works.

UPDATE: NASA admits: US temperature has cooled over past decade.

Responding to widespread criticism that its temperature station readings were corrupted by poor citing issues and suspect adjustments, NOAA established a networkof 114 pristinely sited temperature stations spread out fairly uniformly throughout the United States. Because the network, known as the U.S. Climate Reference Network (USCRN), is so uniformly and pristinely situated, the temperature data require no adjustments to provide an accurate nationwide temperature record. USCRN began compiling temperature data in January 2005. Now, nearly a decade later, NOAA has finally made the USCRN temperature readings available.

According to the USCRN temperature readings, U.S. temperatures are not rising at all – at least not since the network became operational 10 years ago. Instead, the United States has cooled by approximately 0.4 degrees Celsius, which is more than half of the claimed global warming of the twentieth century.

Coming our way (in fact, they’re already here)

 

The Geldof Gulfstream - "oh, you meant thye OCEAN gulf stream? My bad."

The Geldof Gulfstream – “oh, you meant THAT gulf stream! My bad.”

British government and EU forcing homeowners to buy £200 “smart meters” that don’t work, won’t save energy, and open the entire electrical system to hackers.

The European Commission itself has pointed out that of the 19 EU countries that have carried out an analysis of the likely costs and benefits, five have concluded that electric smart meters will lose money and three are not introducing  the scheme. For gas smart meters, 12 of the 19 countries ended up with ‘negative’ results.

But don’t worry, not everyone will suffer from this project.

Sir Bob Geldof will launch an expensive publicity drive, featuring ‘out of control’ cartoon characters called Gaz and Leccy, on Tuesday. Last night he confirmed he was being paid for the campaign, but refused to reveal how much, saying it was ‘none of your f***ing business’.

The cost of his appearance will also be added to bills.

I’m sure one of Al Gore’s companies is providing the meters. Like Al Gore, by the way, Mr. Geldof flies to his environmental conferences via private jet.
