Visualizing Government Arctic Sea Ice Fraud

Written by Tony Heller

“It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends upon his not understanding it.”

– Upton Sinclair

Government agencies like NOAA, NASA and NSIDC start their sea ice graphs in 1979, in order to make it look like there is a linear decline in sea ice.

NOAA claims they don’t have satellite data before 1979, but they are lying. The 1990 IPCC report showed NOAA satellite data back to 1973, which was much lower than 1979.

In fact, there is reasonably good ice data going back to the 1920’s, which shows that ice extent was very low in the 1940’s and 1950’s.

This agrees with historical accounts at the time.

I combined the DOE and IPCC graphs, to show what government agencies are up to. They start their linear graphs at the century maximum sea ice extent.

Then fraudsters like John Cook release fake graphs like this, so that they can blame it on “human activity”

Human activity is driving retreat of Arctic sea ice

I do agree that human activity is driving Arctic sea ice fraud by government agencies. There is zero evidence that CO2 emissions have any influence on Arctic ice however.

    In the geological past there were times when there was no ice at the North Pole. The Vostok ice cores only go back 800,000 years, which means 800,000 years ago there was no ice at the Vostok site in Antarctica.

    Water freezes into ice and then it melts again and again and again and . . .

    Why in the era of modern science is melting ice seen as a global climatic catastrophe? Water has been freezing and then melting again for as long as there has been water on Earth.

    The statement, “You need to pay us money (a tax on carbon dioxide) because the ice at the North Pole is melting and paying us money will save the planet from melting ice,” sounds like a scam to me. For a scam to work it has to at least be believable on some level. Paying some bureaucratic institution money is going to stop the ice at the North Pole from melting? Really?
