We Are In A Climate Death Spiral !!!

I think this is a much better alarmist article than the one I cited in the previous post.

"the polar ice cap has shrunk by almost a third ...".

"the cap has shrunk by an area about seven times larger than the UK."

"the cap has shrunk to about half the size it was then (60s and 70s)".

Shrinking ice cover shows we are in "a spiral of decline".

Now that's alarmism! All he needs to do now if throw in some anecdotal information about floods, droughts and heatwaves in divers places, and, presto!, you've got yourself Apocalyptic Anthropogenic Global Warming (AAGW)!

“If you look at the floods we had this summer, the drought they are currently having in Australia and the heatwave of 2003 it’s another climate extreme."

“This event, plus others reported in recent years, puts the fact that man is responsible for changing the atmosphere beyond reasonable doubt."

Except it doesn't. The conclusion does not necessarily follow. It's also consistent with what we would see if the climate was simply changing due to natural causes.

As it has done since the world began.

And that's the way the Ball bounces.
