For many years I was led (or misled ?) to believe that our greed in burning fossil fuels (to keep us warm and have light at night ?) and releasing CFCs from Fridges (to prevent our food rotting quickly ?) was melting our polar ice caps. The seas would rise, there would be earthquakes, tsunamis, famine and the end of the world would be nigh …
Both Tony and Steven say that, the Arctic ice cap is increasing not decreasing, with a graphic to support their claims :
It’s an interesting sentiment, and story, guys, that there’s a massive conspiracy to pull the wool over our eyes and convince us that we’re the bad guys in melting the ice caps, in order to further a political agenda … but …
Some of my own research into the source of the graphic used by both Tony and Steven (and some other sites), suggests that the original (now presumably “altered”) image might have come from nsidc.org (National Snow & Ice Data Center), which seems to be a “real” science site. Their latest article is entitled – “Steady decline, seasonal minimum approaching” in relation to Arctic ice.
Personally I’m no expert in the field, but see no evidence to support Tony and Steven’s claims that ice cap is increasing from reading the nsidc.org site. In fact my conclusion reading nsidc.org was that the Arctic ice cap is indeed shrinking and has been for many years :
So perhaps the end of the world is still nigh, and those of us that survive will all be sold as human traffic to whoever owns the high ground – the mountains which wont be underwater from the melted ice ?
Joking apart, bottom line – global warming is it a real, and present danger or just a political agenda ?
