Good grief, what are the “Global Warm-inistas” gonna blame on Climate Change/AGW next? The Civil War, maybe? The Black Death? The Chicago Cubs? …Why not?
Watts Up With That?

Kate Ravilious makes this nutty claim at The Guardian:
But in fact the catastrophe may have been set in motion by a warm, wet year over Greenland in 1908, resulting in greater snow accumulation. Writing in the journal Weather, Grant Bigg and David Wilton of Sheffield University explain how the snow soaked through cracks in the ice sheet, encouraging excess iceberg calving over the following few years. Soberingly, global warming has increased iceberg hazard greatly in recent decades, making years like 1912 more the norm than the exception.
Yeah, but have a look at what this research actually says and you’ll understand why The Guardian is nothing more than agitprop.

Of course, the whole thing was already pretty funny, all on its own:
One more post concerning our favorite Global Warming Research Team:

Two thoughts on this entire episode:
This article makes a very nice “companion” piece to the previous post.

Quixotes Last Stand
We’re all aware by now of the delightfully ironic story coming out of (Summertime) Antarctica, about the climate research ship that is stuck solid in thick ice. Chinese, Russian and Australian icebreakers have turned back for fear of also getting caught in the grip of the ice sheets. Apparently these climate researchers are there to update data that was obtained 100 years ago by another climate research team. That word “update” has my radar on high alert. Does update mean ‘change’ or ‘alter’ the data to fit more in line with their global warming agenda? What exactly needs updating?
At any rate, back to this photograph (see below), there are several remarkable things that jump out at me when I look at it. It’s a picture of a science expeditions chief scientist, Alexander Stevens, taken in McMurdo Bay, Antarctica, in 1914. What can be seen in this photo that…

Hmmmm, …makes sense. Of course, it’s perfectly logical that the inordinate amount of ice which surprised these researchers enough to TRAP them (and necessitate a rescue), would obviously mean that… the Antarctic ice must be DECREASING.
Yep, …..makes PERFECT sense to me.
“The Science is Settled”?? Yeah, …SURE it is.
