Follow me while I set this up....
Living here on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean, people in the Hilton Head Island area pay close attention to the danger of hurricanes. Every year since Hurricane Katrina in 2005 the predictions have been for more storms and more danger. This year was no different with the warning that the season would be "extremely active" and various forecasters predicting anywhere from 3 to 6 major storms. Turns out all the forecasts were wrong. Following a trend that started after Katrina this year was the quietest in decades. The first season since 1968 in which there were no storm stronger than category 1.
Eight years of record low hurricanes hasn't stopped the global warming crazies. They're still pushing the lie.
The warmer crazies have been trying to tell us that climate change would cause more tornadoes, wildfires and extreme heat, yet just the opposite has happened.
Another of the big lies is the the North Pole will melt and the polar bears will drown. This scaremongering goes back decades yet every year the deadline for an ice free Arctic comes and goes and the ice remains.
Here's the latest big lie scare and it's even more despicable because it's directed at children:
If Carter/Carson had bothered to check his facts he might be aware that arctic ice is rebounding from a natural low cycle and sea ice for 2013 is already at or above levels for 2008 when the downward trend began [CHART]. The National Snow and Ice Data Center which tracks these things shows an image from December 11 of the North Pole region frozen solid.
The role of Santa is played by British actor Jim Carter who is famous for his role as Mr.Carson, the butler in Downton Abbey.
CARTER: Dear children: Regrettably, I bring bad tidings. For some time now, melting ice here, the North Pole, has made our operations and our day-to-day life intolerable and impossible, and there may be no alternative but to cancel Christmas.
While we are at it, Greenland isn't melting either. The same arctic trends that had global warming crazies in a panic have reversed there as well. And I can't fail to mention that in Antarctic there is more ice than ever with new record cold temperature of minus 135.8 was recently reported. Hard to imagine there'll be much melting with that temperature!
The phony science based on flawed predictions has been exposed as a fraud. The real science, based on observation is making a fool out of the global warming crowd. But that doesn't seem to stop them. They just make it up. I would like to say that this kind of campaign designed to scare children at Christmas has to be new low yet the big lie left has used that tool before. The lies never stop!
