Nothing new with warming oceans and heatwaves

The Arctic Ocean is warming up, icebergs are growing scarcer and in some places the seals are finding the water too hot according to a report to the Commerce Department yesterday from the Consulate at Bergen, Norway.

Reports from fishermen, seal hunters and explorers all point to a radical change in climate conditions and hitherto unheard of temperatures in the Arctic zone.

Exploration expeditions report that scarcely any ice has been met as far north as 81 degrees 29 minutes.

Soundings to a depth of 3,100 metres showed the gulf stream still very warm.

Great masses of ice have been replaced by moraines of earth and stones, the report continued, while at many points well known glaciers have entirely disappeared.

Very few seals and no white fish are found in the eastern Arctic, while vast shoals of herring and smelts which have never before ventured so far north, are being encountered in the old seal fishing grounds.

Within a few years it is predicted that due to the ice melt the sea will rise and make most coast cities uninhabitable.

SORRY I neglected to mention that this report was from November 2, 1922, as reported by the AP and published in The Washington Post 98 years ago.

Today climate change scientist seem to think it was caused by the Model T Ford emissions or possibly horse and cattle carbon farts.

Heat waves in Australia are nothing new and official records show it was hotter in 1896

What we today call official records started in 1910. If we think this summer has been hot how about a 24-DAY heatwave on Australia’s east coast in January 1896 that saw temperatures climb to 49 degrees and killed 437 people.

The maximum temperature was above 38.9C for over three weeks!

In January 1896 a savage blast “like a furnace” stretched across Australia from east to west and lasted for weeks. The death toll reached 437 people in the eastern states. Newspaper reports showed that in Bourke the heat approached 120°F (48.9°C) on three days. The maximum at or above 102 degrees F (38.9°C) for 24 days straight. By Tuesday Jan 14, people were reported falling dead in the streets.

Unable to sleep, people in Brewarrina walked the streets at night for hours, the thermometer recording 109F at midnight. Overnight, the temperature did not fall below 103°F.

On Jan 18 in Wilcannia, five deaths were recorded in one day, the hospitals were overcrowded and reports said that “more deaths are hourly expected”.

By January 24, in Bourke, many businesses had shut down (almost everything bar the hotels). Panic stricken Australians were fleeing to the hills in climate refugee trains.

As reported at the time, the government felt the situation was so serious that to save lives and ease the suffering of its citizens they added cheaper train services.

The Battle for our Grasslands and Livestock

Grasslands and arable land cover just 10% of Earth’s surface but (with the oceans) they produce all of our food and fibre. But the productivityand health of our grasslands, farms and livestock are under threat from global warming alarmists and green preservationists.

We are afflicted by climate crazies and methane madness. It is poor public policy that condones restrictions on grazing operations, or taxes on grazing animals, based on disputed theories that claim that bodily emissions from farm animals will cause dangerous global warming.

New Zealand was the first cattle country to propose a “livestock fart tax”. Four hundred farmers then drove 20 tractors to the Parliament in Wellington waving placards and banners saying “STOP THE FART TAX”. The proposal was laughed out of Parliament. But the war on farmers and livestock continues.

Ruminants such as sheep, cattle and goats cannot make long-term additions to the gases in the atmosphere – they just recycle atmospheric carbon and nitrogen nutrients in a cycle-of-life that has operated for millennia.

Grazing ruminant animals with their emission products have always been part of healthy grasslands. Only when large numbers of animals are fed artificially and confined on the one patch of land do pollution problems appear.

Many otherwise genuine environmentalists are assisting the destruction of grasslands with their native pastures and endangered grass birds. Blinded by their love for the trees, they neglect the grasses, legumes, herbs and livestock that provide their food. In Australia they pass laws to protect weedy eucalypts invading the grasslands but ignore the valuable and declining Mitchell grass that once dominated Australia’s treeless plains.

Grasslands are also under threat from cultivation for biofuel crops, from subsidised carbon credit forests and from the remorseless encroachment of fire-prone government reserves and pest havens.

Trying to control atmospheric carbon-bearing gases with taxes is futile and anti-life. Even if carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere doubled, or more, the climate effect if any, is probably beneficial (warmer at night and near the poles and with more moisture in the atmosphere). More importantly, all life on Earth already benefits from the additional CO2 plant nutrient in the atmosphere, and would benefit even more were CO2 levels to double.

Nitrogen is the most abundant natural gas in the atmosphere, inhaled in every breath and an essential component of all protein. Grazing livestock merely recycle a few compounds of nitrogen, all of which either return to the atmosphere or provide valuable nitrogen fertilisers for the plants they graze on.

We also have the modern methane madness. Mobs of grazing ruminants have been roaming the grasslands since cave-man days. Methane has also been seeping from marshes, bubbling out of oceans, leaking from coal seams and oil seeps and being released in huge quantities from volcanoes. So what more can a few domestic cows and sheep do to affect this? Methane from domestic ruminants is a non-problem.

It is a foolish and costly fantasy to believe that Earth’s climate can be controlled by passing laws, imposing taxes, attempting to manipulate the bodily emissions of farm animals or trying to prevent farmers from clearing woody weeds invading their pastures.

The Clexit (ClimateExit) Coalition, comprising over 190 representatives from 26 countries, has formed the Clexit Grassland Protection Group with nine representatives from five big grazing countries.

This is an important problem. We hope you choose to publish part or all of our report. At least we hope you will read it.

Leading climate scientist admits weather modification ‘experiment’ is going on right now

(NaturalNews) A leading climate scientist from the U.K.  had a Freudian slip moment recently when he admitted, perhaps without realizing it, that climate geoengineering in the form of “chemtrails” is not only not some wild conspiracy theory, but is an actual thing happening all around the world right now.

Professor Tim Lenton, chair of Climate Change/Earth Systems Science at the University of Exeter in the U.K., participated in a question and answer session at the Our Common Future Under Climate Change conference in Paris back in July, where he agreed to answer a compelling question about weather modification and its effects on our planet.

Olga Raffa from Chemtrails Project U.K.  asked Prof.  Lenton why “ongoing” geoengineering programs are taking place without any research as to their outcomes.  She also asked about how the use of “aerosols” is justified when the aluminum, barium and other chemicals they contain is a known killer of bees.

“I represent a large group of people who are wondering why programs such as weather modification and ongoing geoengineering programs throughout the world have not been taken into consideration with a lot of the research done,” Raffa asked, pointing to the ongoing climate change debate and its lack of attention on geoengineering.

“And we notice, on a daily basis, that our environment is being tipped through the aerosols being dumped into the atmosphere blocking our sun.

And there seems to be a lot of aluminum in the environment – within the bees now have aluminum, and it’s destroying their, well, there’s a bee collapse obviously with the insects and the biodiversity.” Raffa also brought up electromagnetic radiation (EMF), HAARP (the High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program), covert military programs and other hard-hitting topics that many other climate scientists have chosen to ignore – but not Prof.  Lenton.

In his response to Raffa’s questions, Prof.  Lenton expressed opposition to “sunlight reflection methods” and “large-scale carbon removal methods,” both of which are among the excuses given for spraying the skies with streaming banners of clouding chemicals.

Prof.  Lenton admits to ‘current uncontrolled experiment’ in reference to geoengineering However, in a follow-up question posed by Dr.  Colin Pritchard from the University of Edinburgh, Prof.  Lenton offered even more along the lines of admission that such weather modification programs are not just proposed concepts for the future, but actual activity taking place today.

When pressed about his thoughts on the dangers inherent to “enormous global-scale uncontrolled experiment[s]” using geoengineering, Prof Lenton responded:

“I think we have to be nuanced on specific proposals, specific technologies.  But I think we can perhaps all agree that certainly none of us want to continue the current uncontrolled experiment.” In other words, governments and whomever else are involved in geoengineering efforts are currently engaged in a large-scale, uncontrolled experiment, according to this admission by Prof.  Lenton.  And like many of the rest of us, he wants to see this experiment halted in favor of sound scientific proposals.

But in order to get there, it must first be acknowledged that this experiment is real, which is something that chemtrail-deniers can’t seem to get through their dense skulls.  It’s no longer an argument over whether or not chemtrails are real – they are – but rather whether or not they’ve begun, which mounting evidence suggests was many, many years ago.

Prof.  Lenton has since denied that his statements were in reference to geoengineering and chemtrails, but Chemtrails Project U.K.  says this is just a lame attempt at backtracking.

“It is … clear that the ‘uncontrolled experiment’ that Lenton refers to is the same ‘uncontrolled experiment in geoengineering‘ concern raised by Pritchard,” the group maintains.  “We know this because the former is immediately addressing the latter.” Sources for this article include:
