And for a bonus, for the interested, not for deniers ...

2018 has been unprecedented in a lot of ways .... but it looks like a "normal" year for Arctic Ice Melt in terms of extent ...

... until something unprecedented did happen in terms of WHERE the ice was melting.

The oldest and thickest Arctic was to the North of Greenland, and the assumption was always that this would be the last to go, sometime later in the century.

Surprisingly and unexpectedly, it has started to melt this year.



It is always a bit spooky when you get a "No one predicted that" moment.

Trends in extreme high temperatures in the US.


No trend.


No evidence here of "increasing temperature extremes.

Maybe the heat is coming from below. How do you plan on controlling the earth's core?

The North Pole has already warmed by around 3 degrees C, and could warm by a staggering 14C above 1900 levels in a worst-case high-warming future:

Keep it up and you may aspire to the mantle of valhamic.

Besides, where is the evidence for all this shyte you post?//

I've been to Qld and dived the reef, and it's very sad. Probably a mix of anthropogenic causes, more one year than the last.

But that doesn't stop your sort from accentuating the positive....

However, reefs like heat; why there isn't one in galwa' bay.

More spam from a paid climate activist.

You must have been banned from thevClimate Change thread which you singlehandedly destroyed and now you are here dumping your dung.

It will be the new abnormal as long Ireland continues to increase carbon emissions.

Ireland is doing it's best to ensure the world heats up faster.

https://www.independent.ie/business/farming/forestry-enviro/environment/ireland-completely-off-course-to-achieve-climate-change-targets-37153678.html

No sign of taking on the vested interests of the farming lobby and peat diggers.
(Bord na Mona is probably the most evil organisation in Ireland, hotly followed by the IFA and Department of Agriculture)
There is a housing boom pending and building standards are at risk of being diluted instead of improved.
The situation is chronic.
A quotation from the link, "The increase is largely driven by ongoing peat extraction for domestic heating, electricity generation and horticultural use and drainage to enable grassland and forestry activities."

How is this compatible with preservation of peat bogs required under EU legislation?

The housing boom is desperately needed. Would dilution of building standards on home insulation make a big difference to the incentive to build given that the cost can be passed on in higher prices?

My aim in life is to increase at every possible turn my carbon footprint.


You are just another left wing liar pushing the false agenda that climatic changes are the result of human activity.
You use this junk science to scaremonger populations in order to grab power and impose fraudulent carbon taxes.
Scientists are generally truthful. Climate science has more variability than other branches of science.

Science is a process for finding how how stuff works in the real world. It is not "the truth", but it is the most effective way of finding out the truth. It makes mistakes, but has amazing powers of self-correction.

Climate science is not more or less variable than any branch of physics, chemistry or biology. In fact, parts of biology like genetics may be more complex.

Very few branches of science are reducible to a simple formula.
