12 more glaciers that haven’t heard the news about global warming

From I HateTheMedia.com:

The glaciers are melting! The glaciers are melting! The glaciers are…uhhhhh…never mind.

Turns out the IPCC’s chicken little story that all the Himalayan glaciers are melting is just another exaggeration. Or fraud. Take your choice. You know, like the stats coming out of East Anglia CRU. And its claim that Antarctica is melting. And that Greenland’s ice cap is melting. And that sea levels are rising. And that the polar bears are dying. Fact is, some glaciers are retreating, but many others around the world are growing.

“But how is that possible? How can glaciers be growing when the world is warming up like a package of Jiffy-Pop in a microwave?”

Here are a dozen glaciers (or groups of glaciers) around the world that are growing almost as quickly as global warming skepticism.

1. Himalayan glaciers are growing, not shrinking

Things are not as they seemed to be in the IPCC report. Not only are the Himalayan glaciers not shrinking, they’re growing. Discovery reports:

Perched on the soaring Karakoram mountains in the Western Himalayas, a group of some 230 glaciers are bucking the global warming trend. They’re growing. Throughout much of the Tibetan Plateau, high-altitude glaciers are dwindling in the face of rising temperatures. The situation is potentially dire for the hundreds of millions of people living in China, India and throughout southeast Asia who depend on the glaciers for their water supply.

Corporate Mockingbird Media Speaks With One Voice On Climate Change

I guess this is more of the consensus I keep hearing about regarding “global warming.” All the editorials show a consensus now, so it must definitely be true. There is so much bullshit in just the first paragraph that I don’t even know where to start. Later they half-heartedly address the Climategate issue, but like good environmentalists, they gloss it over and say that it doesn’t mean anything and doesn’t change anything. Apparently a little fraud and data manipulation don’t really mean anything in the great scheme of things, i.e., the hijacking of the global economy and the enslavement of most of humanity. This apparently came out before the leaked “Danish text” which is giving Copenhagen a black eye on its first day or so. The fraud and the secret agenda are becoming more and more obvious and it’s getting harder and harder to cover them up and hope they’ll go away. Our “benevolent” leaders will have to show themselves for what they truly are and ram this thing down our throats regardless of what we the people want. Hopefully at that time, the rest of the sleeping masses will finally wake up to what is being done to them and the resistance will begin.

Spoon Fed Propaganda

Today 56 newspapers in 45 countries take the unprecedented step of speaking with one voice through a common editorial. We do so because humanity faces a profound emergency.

Unless we combine to take decisive action, climate change will ravage our planet, and with it our prosperity and security. The dangers have been becoming apparent for a generation. Now the facts have started to speak: 11 of the past 14 years have been the warmest on record, the Arctic ice-cap is melting and last year’s inflamed oil and food prices provide a foretaste of future havoc. In scientific journals the question is no longer whether humans are to blame, but how little time we have got left to limit the damage. Yet so far the world’s response has been feeble and half-hearted.

Rep. Issa: Obama’s refusal to investigate ‘Climategate’ emails is ‘unconscionable’

John Holdren, eugenicist and the president’s science advisor (or czar or whatever they call him) weighs in and says this sort of thing is normal, so basically it’s “Nothing to see here, everybody move along.”  The fact that this sort of thing happens all the time in science means that it’s not a problem! To defend itself against calls to investigate, the administration’s “top scientists contend one controversy hardly undermines decades of more reliable research on climate change.” However, this one controversy is in regards to those decades of more “reliable” research on climate change! An impartial investigation would show how totally bogus the science is that “states” that AGW exists.

To even talk about it would be to acknowledge that it exists, which is something that the MSM have refused to do. The only two “news” outlets to even have mentioned it here in the good ol’ USA seem to have been Fox News and The Daily Show (on Comedy Central). That’s it. Everyone else (ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN and MSNBC) have all been busy with the riveting Tiger Woods affair. Now that’s news that people want to hear about.

From TheHill.com:

The U.N.’s decision this week to investigate whether some of its climate change research had been manipulated constitutes a “direct rebuke” of the Obama administration, Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) said Friday.

The White House’s unwillingness to open a similar inquiry could now only be characterized as “a sad abdication of their responsibility to ensure that U.S. policies are not driven by corrupted science and data,” the congressman added.

“The very integrity of the report that the Obama administration has predicated much of its climate change policy has been called into question and it is unconscionable that this administration and Congress is willing to abdicate responsibility of uncovering the truth to the United Nations,” explained Issa, the ranking member on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.

Motivating Issa’s calls for a probe into climate change research, and the U.N.’s decision to launch one, was the publication last month of thousands of e-mails and other documents that global warming skeptics say prove the phenomenon does not exist.

Gibbs: Despite research dispute, ‘climate change is happening’

Gibbs, of course, is a well known authority on the climate. This Whitehouse spokesman gig he has is just to help pad out his resume.

Seriously though, despite the fact that the hacked files show emails discussing how to keep “skeptics” out of the debate (and science is all about being skeptical), how to keep inconvenient data from altering their “findings,” and more, these politicians (Al Gore, Obama and others) state that climate change is man-made and that’s that. End of discussion. The only thing that Gibbs says that is even partially true is this: Climate change is happening. What he fails to state is that climate change has always happened and will continue to happen, no matter what idiotic schemes mankind comes up with to try and keep it from happening.

From TheHill.com:
The White House on Monday made exceptionally clear that it wants nothing to do with the furor over documents that global warming skeptics say prove the phenomenon is not a threat.

Despite the incident, which rocked international headlines last week, climate science is sound, Press Secretary Robert Gibbs stressed this afternoon, and the White House nonetheless believes “climate change is happening.”
 

“I don’t think that’s anything that is, quite frankly, among most people, in dispute anymore,” he said during Monday’s press briefing.

Leaked emails won’t harm UN climate body, says chairman

Obviously, they’re not worried about the leaked emails showing that there has been a concerted effort to ignore evidence contrary to their viewpoint, along with trying to ostracize any scientists who have doubts. That’s because this isn’t based on science, it’s based on a global agenda to control the people and one of the ways of doing that is through a global carbon tax. So, facts don’t matter and the entire subject of the incriminating emails can be safely ignored.

For example take this quote:

Pachauri said the large number of contributors and rigorous peer review mechanism adopted by the IPCC meant that any bias would be rapidly uncovered.

However, the emails plainly state that the peer review mechanism should be changed to ignore anyone who disagrees with AGW. They also talk about tweaking data to make it fit the predictions of the models, and omitting anything which might suggest cooling instead of warming. Also the CRU (which is supposedly the gold standard as far as data goes) can’t produce any of the old data (it was apparently disposed of because of space limitations) and they won’t show how they “massage” the data to come to the conclusions they come to. So how the IPCC (which is mostly filled with alarmists) will be “unbiased” is anyone’s guess.

From The Guardian:

There is “virtually no possibility” of a few scientists biasing the advice given to governments by the UN’s top global warming body, its chair said today.

Rajendra Pachauri defended the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) in the wake of apparent suggestions in emails between climate scientists at the University of East Anglia that they had prevented work they did not agree with from being included in the panel’s fourth assessment report, which was published in 2007.

The emails were made public this month after a hacker illegally obtained them from servers at the university.

Pachauri said the large number of contributors and rigorous peer review mechanism adopted by the IPCC meant that any bias would be rapidly uncovered.

UN chief calls for ‘global governance structure’ to oversee greenhouse gasses

From Raw Story:

United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, in an opinion piece published by The New York Times, laid out a number of benchmarks for success in the upcoming global climate talks, planned to be held in Copenhagen.

Among them, Ki-moon argued in the Tuesday edition that a “global governance structure” must be levied to ensure that nations collaborate on how resources are deployed and managed.

The editorial, entitled “We Can Do It,” urges world leaders toward the accomplishment of three key points: Curbing emissions, investing in green growth for third world nations and establishing a supranational structure to oversee resources.

“Every country must do its utmost to reduce emissions from all major sources, including from deforestation and emissions from shipping and aviation,” Ki-moon wrote. “Developed countries must strengthen their mid-term mitigation targets, which are currently nowhere close to the cuts that the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change says are needed. Developing countries must slow the rise in their emissions and accelerate green growth as part of their strategies to reduce poverty.”

Has Climate Change had its “Ten Minutes of Fame”?

From NetNewsLedger.com:

THUNDER BAY – Yesterday was the International Day of Action on Climate Change. In Ottawa, cold weather kept the crowd from hitting the 5,000 people that organizers hoped. About 500 people showed up. In Calgary, a snowstorm dumped wet heavy snow on the city. On Google, unlike past climate change events, there was not a special logo created. On the front pages of major newspapers across Canada the major stories were not about the looming climate crisis.

In Winnipeg, about 200 people made it to a rally at the Manitoba Legislature. In Vancouver, a city steeped in protest, the crowd was estimated at 5000. Across Canada interest in the day of action appeared less than ever.

Could it be that the fire is smoldering out on the issue of climate change? Maybe in an era where ever shorter attention spans want to shift to other topics the climate issue has had its “ten minutes of fame”?

On the popular news site www.bourque.com the climate issue is not mentioned. This morning, on Google News, there isn’t a mention of the day of protest on the top stories either. The front page of the Toronto Star is void of climate change stories too.
