Buy and save ice: it will be valuable some day

Category: global warming,mediaharmonicminer @ 7:39 am

If an oil company sponsored a study wherein scientists concluded that arctic sea ice will remain relatively constant within a range of fluctuation, the eviro-pagan-eco-panic lobby would cry, “But those scientists are in the pay of the evil polluters, and aren’t objective!”

The most important thing you need to know about THIS study is in the last paragraph of the article, reproduced here:

Arctic sea ice melting faster than expected

The study was supported by the NOAA Climate Change Program Office, the Institute for the Study of the Ocean and Atmosphere and the U.S. Department of Energy.

You don’t suppose that the NOAA Climate Change Program Office has just a little, teeny motivation to always find climate change in the results of any study, do you?

Nah. They’re all just objective scientists, disinterestedly going about the business of the people.  They really all wish global warming wasn’t true, so they could just go home and collect unemployment checks.

Somewhere between 10 and 100 times as much money has been spent by government as has been spent by private industry researching the same issue, “proving” global warming is a big problem, and is caused by humans, mostly.  Huge numbers of scientists and bureaucrats depend for their very living on continuously finding more evidence of global warming, all the while claiming scientists working for private industry are “tainted” by industry money.

Something smells about this bit of sophistry, and it’s not the methane or the CO2.
