Good Journalism Disappearing Faster Than Arctic Ice

The Economist claims that the Arctic is melting “far faster than once expected.”

Nine years ago they expected it to melt by 2013.

Gore: Polar ice cap may disappear by summer 2014

NASA says the Arctic will be ice-free no later than this year.

Not only is The Economist lying about the forecasts, but they are also lying about the Arctic melting.  In the animation below, I masked out all Arctic sea ice which is less than five feet thick. Over the past ten years, thick ice has expanded 1,000 miles into the East Siberian Sea, and volume has increased.

And Greenland is gaining ice as well.

Climate journalists seem to have no qualms about distributing 100% fake news.

    There was a time when journalism was a respected profession. It was understood that elected democracies needed accurate information to inform wise decision making. The press was a means of keeping elected officials, regardless of party affiliation, honest, and the system working for the people.

    Journalists actually went to school to learn how to report the news. Beginning in the 1960’s, journalism became an outlet for political activism. The reporter lo longer seeks to report relevant facts, instead he/she seeks to change the world according to their own political prism, which they conflate to mean “social justice”. The irony is that political activists who may ignore, distort, or fabricate news now feel entitled to do so based on this new moral paradigm.

      Someone is paying them. There’s a market for their output .
      Apparently Walter Cronkite ended the war in Vietnam with his opinion. What has been forgotten is that he was universally respected and trusted. Today’s standards aren’t what they used to be. Sensationalism has replaced integrity.

      G, you certainly have it right about the timing of journalism’s decline. I won’t go off topic with details but starting in the late 60’s they had many misleading articles on gun control. In the mid 1970’s San Jose State taught a class in techniques of muck raking. To make sure this is understood, this is digging up dirt to slander someone. So here was a very unethical practice being taught at a major college.
