Nuttercelli Calls At 60 – I Raise To 61

Arctic sea ice delusions strike the Mail on Sunday and Telegraph

When it comes to climate science reporting, the Mail on Sunday and Telegraph are only reliable in the sense that you can rely on them to usually get the science wrong. This weekend’s Arctic sea ice articles from David Rose of the Mail and Hayley Dixon at the Telegraph unfortunately fit that pattern.

Both articles claimed that Arctic sea ice extent grew 60 percent in August 2013 as compared to August 2012. While this factoid is technically true, it’s also largely irrelevant. For one thing, the annual Arctic sea ice minimum occurs in September – we’re not there yet.

It was 60% in August. Now it is up to 61%. Green shows ice present in 2013 which wasn’t present in 2012. Red shows the opposite.

Then Nutter claims that scientists predicted the massive recovery all along.

that’s not the least bit surprising.

Around 80% of the ~100 scientists at the Bjerknes [Arctic climate science] conference thought that there would be MORE Arctic sea-ice in 2013, compared to 2012

Kook and Nuttercelli are now in the first stages of their never was a global warming consensus  history rewrite.

James Hansen : ‘This is the last chance’


“We see a tipping point occurring right before our eyes,” Hansen told the AP before the luncheon. “The Arctic is the first tipping point and it’s occurring exactly the way we said it would.”

Hansen, echoing work by other scientists, said that in five to 10 years, the Arctic will be free of sea ice in the summer.

June 26, 2013

The alarming loss of sea ice which has grown worse each summer over the past several decades, has taken a sharp turn for the worse: this year the loss is right in the middle, the most resilient part of the ice cover. This could lead to a completely ice-free Arctic Ocean by September.

  2. Jack Savage says:

    David Rose writes a “technically true” article in The Mail which millions of voters will read, and become less alarmed and more dubious about the spectre of “global warming” as a consequence….Nuccitelli writes a bitter and twisted faux-rebuttal in the obscure sections of the loss-making Guardian….

    I will settle for that!

    It is a religion to the likes of Nuccitelli. Always fit the facts to the creed.

    We have always been at war with Eurasia.

  6. John Edmondson says:

    I notice you posted a few comments over at the guardian site today. It all works well until your post gets “moderated”.
    Good fun baiting the warmists while it lasts though?

    it always has been……and always will be about money. how they can take it. and how these climate people won’t have to find a real job

  8. BBould says:

    Have they no integrity?

    Well, as the skeptic community were constantly telling us it was all due to unusual storms breaking up the ice last year and as even some warmist organisations were in agreement the above extract seems entirely reasonable.

    Mind you I bet none of them forecast it would be this high! In fact I bet none of them actually forecast anything at all in writing or in public but I would like to be proven wrong.

  10. Philip says:

    worse than a liar is a stupid liar.

  11. Of course they would claim that – because according to their logic, an increase in ice means global warming and a decrease in ice means global warming. That way they get to have their cake and eat it too.

  12. stargazer says:

    Were these 80% not part of the 97%?

  13. The Iceman says:

    Baloney is as baloney does. I once asked a warming scientist, “how many years of level or declining temps will it take before you re-examine your thesis?” That was 6 years ago. I predicted it would take 20, but he wouldn’t commit. I still stand by 2018. It is beginning now, but will need another 5 years to really start the retreat. This ice thing is just “icing on the cake (pole).”

  14. kenema says:

    These people deserve prison. they’ve defrauded citizens in nations out of trillions of dollars.

  15. It is becoming clear why liberals ie Obama, Kerry et al are currently pushing like mad to get changes installed to screw our economy ASAP. They know that if they wait a few more years the jig will really be up. Then it will be too late. Too late for them to get the lemmings in our society to follow them into economic oblivion for the USA.

  16. Al Bore says:

    This is a fair debate as long as both sides are willing to accept the reality that cience has only agreed that it COULD be a crisis and have never agreed it is inevitable or eventual and it’s been 30 years now of intensive CO2 research mostly into effects and rarely into causes.
