DMI 1991: Arctic Ice Thickening Since The 1940s

From The Canberra Times Aug 16, 1991: On the contrary, temperatures have been falling steadily since the 1940s in Greenland, and the polar ice cap is getting thicker and thicker,” Lars Prahm, director of the Danish Meteorological Institute, said at the close of the annual meeting of Nordic Meteorological Institutes.

Mr. Prahm, the meeting’s host, dismissed predictions by some scientists that the ice in Greenland, the world’s largest ice-covered island, would melt gradually, causing oceans to rise and flooding low-lying areas around the world, including Bangladesh, the Maldives, and some Pacific states.

He may have been responding to this wildly fraudulent claim three years earlier.

NOAA climate scientists have since erased all the ice data before the 1979 peak because it wrecked their global warming scam.

Unfortunately for NOAA climate fraudsters, the 1990 IPCC report documented the data they threw out.

Similarly, NOAA and NASA have erased the fall of Greenland temperatures from the 1940’s through 1990.

In 1989, NOAA’s Tom Karl said most global warming occurred before 1919, and that Earth cooled from 1921 to 1979.

Global warming is the biggest scam in science history, driven by tens of billions of dollars of government money – which has completely corrupted science.

    “….Two things are immediately apparent. If we make allowance for local warming over the last 155 years, Easterbrook’s claim that “most of the past 10,000 [years] have been warmer than the present” is not true for central Greenland, let alone the global record. It’s also clear that there is a mismatch between the temperature reconstructions and the ice core record. The two blue crosses on the chart show the GISP site temperatures (adjusted from GRIP data) for 1855 and 2009. It’s clear there is a calibration issue between the long term proxy (based on ∂18O measurement) and recent direct measurement of temperatures on the Greenland ice sheet. How that might be resolved is an interesting question, but not directly relevant to the point at issue — which is what Don Easterbrook is trying to show. Here’s his conclusion:

    So where do the 1934/1998/2010 warm years rank in the long-term list of warm years? Of the past 10,500 years, 9,100 were warmer than 1934/1998/2010. Thus, regardless of which year ( 1934, 1998, or 2010) turns out to be the warmest of the past century, that year will rank number 9,099 in the long-term list. The climate has been warming slowly since the Little Ice Age (Fig. 5), but it has quite a ways to go yet before reaching the temperature levels that persisted for nearly all of the past 10,500 years. It’s really much to do about nothing.

    1855 — Easterbrook’s “present” — was not warmer than 1934, 1998 or 2010 in Greenland, let alone around the world. His claim that 9,100 out of the last 10,500 years were warmer than recent peak years is false, based on a misunderstanding or misrepresentation of data.

    The last word goes to Richard Alley, who points out that however interesting the study of past climate may be, it doesn’t help us where we’re heading:

    “Whether temperatures have been warmer or colder in the past is largely irrelevant to the impacts of the ongoing warming. If you don’t care about humans and the other species here, global warming may not be all that important; nature has caused warmer and colder times in the past, and life survived. But, those warmer and colder times did not come when there were almost seven billion people living as we do. The best science says that if our warming becomes large, its influences on us will be primarily negative, and the temperature of the Holocene or the Cretaceous has no bearing on that. Furthermore, the existence of warmer and colder times in the past does not remove our fingerprints from the current warming, any more than the existence of natural fires would remove an arsonist’s fingerprints from a can of flammable liquid. If anything, nature has been pushing to cool the climate over the last few decades, but warming has occurred.

      You mean where *he* thinks we’re heading.
      What a negative outlook. He forgets all of mankind’s accomplishments that have allowed us to survive all kinds of heat/cold that people would have perished in before. We’ll be just fine – unless we get into another ice age.
