SECRETARY DIRK KEMPTHORNE STRIKES A BLOW FOR RADICALS

Thursday, May 15, 2008



In the past couple of days, the media have reported “grim” melting of ice in the Arctic while disgracefully ignoring the history of the region prior to 1979 and explorations of the area as far back as 1903.
As the Washington Post REPORTED: “The Arctic ice cap is melting faster than scientists had expected and will shrink 40 percent by 2050 in most regions, with grim consequences for polar bears, walruses and other marine animals, according to government researchers”.
THE “FLY IN THE OINTMENT” IS THAT THE STUDIES THEY ARE BASING THEIR CONCLUSIONS ON WERE ONLY STARTED IN 1972, and only since 1979 have we been able to monitor the ice pack by satellite!
The outrageous conclusions were made, with a straight face, that ice conditions in the Arctic are either historically low or grim, despite the fact we’ve only been monitoring these levels for the last 35 years? Is everything that happened in this region – in thousands of millennia since the World Began – totally irrelevant?
There are historical facts that as early as 1940 a Royal Canadian wooden ship was able to transit the Northwest Passage that was clear enough of ice for a wooden sailboat, with a crew of seven, to successfully navigate it more than 100 years ago. How many times in the history of the planet do you think a similar – or even more ice-free – condition existed in this area?
And even further back in history Roald Amundsen, a Norwegian explorer, successfully navigated the Northwest Passage in August 1905!
So today Secratary Dirk Kempthorne “paid his pound of flesh” to the Ecology zealots, and declared the Polar bear was an endangered species. The ramifications for this reckless act will be felt for years to come, and in an instant made the USA more dependent upon the Arab nations that wish to destroy us!
This is the first time that the Endangered Species Act has been used to protect a species threatened by the impacts of global warming. There has been concern within the business community that such action could have far-reaching impact and could be used to regulate carbon dioxide.
Law suits are probably already being drawn up by the cadre of lawyers who will file the suits for monetary damages by the Ecologists against any industry that produces CO2.
Marilyn Crockett, executive director of the Alaska Oil and Gas Association, said she’s concerned Wednesday’s decision will drive prolonged court battles over oil future exploration and production. The association represents 17 oil and gas companies plus the owners of a trans-Alaskan pipeline.”We now have a species threatened, which is both healthy in size and population; the real risk is litigation that will follow,” Crockett said. “Lawsuits will continue to be filed opposing individual operations, lease sales and permits, and that could have a significant impact on business up here.”
About 15 percent of the nation’s oil is being produced in Alaska, and soaring prices for the commodity are pushing companies to look farther and farther offshore to the floors of the Beaufort and Chukchi seas, which are frozen much of the year.You can be sure this will come to a screeching halt thanks to this dastardly decision!

  1. Why are all the ‘Pro’ Global Warmists so bloody snotty? If you don’t believe Al Gore is right you are automatically an idiot. How does that work?
    All I know is that
    1: Al Gore is no scientist.
    2: Lots of scientists work for Government grants and therefore tend to come up with theories that keep those grants flowing and…
    3: Governments cynically and disgracefully snatch the opportunity to tax us stupid proles under the name of helping to stop so-called climate change.
    What do they do with the money?
    I imagine the snotty Climate Change champions will say that McBroon and co go round planting woods and flower meadows in the night.
    I say they use it to top-up their pensions and fund their endless round-the-world fact finding missions.
    Climate Change conference in Bali anyone? Quick, kick-start the Learjets…
    Sorry snotties – it’s a con

  2. Again the secular doomsdayers are at work overtime spinning tales of woe of impending disaster.Chicken Little tales ad nauseum are being spun by these wage slaves for certain political hacks who have no know scientific knowledge beyond the tea leaf readers and their ouija board movements.If these clowns would listen to the scientists that really know the truth about the mytholgy of global warming and admit it is a wacked out excuse to supposedly not do harm to the Arctic envronment and turn their attention to various countries dedicated to our destruction we might survive a century longer.For a majority of agnostic and atheistic humanists,these prophets of doom are all but calling for the building of another Ark to perpetuate the animals, including man.Simplistic non thinking at its best.email from njwmd@cpflusa.com

  3. Let’s keep it scientific then: Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW) is a theory. It is an unproven theory. What you do with theories is put them to the test with scientific observations. Let’s see what data points we now have:
    1) Temperatures have not surpassed 1998 (NOAA)
    2) Temperatures are now trending downward since 1998 (NOAA)
    3) Ocean temperatures have not risen since 2000 when the Argo buoys were launched. The buoys even show a slight decrease in ocean temperatures
    4) The Arctic ice froze to February levels by December, there are 1mm more sq km than before (previous was 13mm sq km)
    5) The Arctic ice is 20cm thicker than “normal”
    6) All polar bear pods are stable or growing (NOAA/PBS)
    7) Mount Kilimanjaro is not melting because of global warming, rather “sublimation”
    8) The Antarctic is not “melting”, it is growing in most places, the sloughing off at the edges is normal as the ice mass grows
    9) The majority of the Antarctic is 8 degrees below “normal”
    10) The coveted .7 degree rise in temperatures over the last 100 years has been wiped out with last years below “normal” temperatures
    11) Al Gores film was just deemed “propaganda” in a court of law in the UK as many points could not be substantiated by scientists
    12) It was also just reveled that some of the footage in Al’s film was CGI. The ice shelf collapse was from the movie “The Day After” (ABC)
    13) One of the scientists that originally thought that CO2 preceded the warming has now found with new data that the CO2 rise follows the warming (Dr David Evans)
    14) Storms have become less frequent and less severe (many GW alarmists are now backtracking these earlier “theories”)
    15) Droughts have always happened and always will
    16) The greenhouse effect is real, our small contribution to it cannot even be measured
    17) Several publications, including those that are “warmist” have recently written that the “natural” cycles of the earth may “mask” AGW. Give me a break.
    18) 31,000 scientist have signed a petition against AGW!

    With China (1 new coal fired plant coming on line each week) and India spewing millions of tons of CO2 in to the atmosphere, along with the rest of the world increasing their CO2 “production” over the last ten years, these results should be impossible.

    Now, please be so kind to give me one piece of observable evidence that man is causing “global warming”.
