Global warming? 2018 year of ‘lost summer’ for Arctic



Global warming? 2018 year of ‘lost summer’ for Arctic

So much for global warming.

A report from Scientific American said there are problems this year for the species of shorebirds that each year descend on the Arctic to mate and raise chicks.

It’s because the reproduction happens during the summer, and because of extensive July snow this year, there’s been no summer.

The report said the frozen precipitation “sealed the birds off from food and nesting sites.”

“Without these key resources avian migrants to the region will not reproduce in 2018, experts say.”

The report elaborated that snowmelt usually allows shorebirds to begin nesting on eastern Greenland’s treeless tundra during the first half of June.

But Jeroen Reneerkens, an avian ecologist at the University of Groningen, said when he arrived there this year on June 14, he found a particular species of shorebirds absent.

“The tundra was 100 percent covered in snow, and it was a very deep layer,” he says, estimating an average depth of about one meter. “It was a big shock to see the place like that.”

That kind of development is why activists largely have stopped using the term global warming – which hasn’t been detected for two decades – to climate change.

Marc Morano at Climate Depot said Reneerkens reported never having come across such circumstances before.

“He is uncertain how this ‘disastrous’ incident will affect the overall populations of these shorebird species. But ‘given the scale that this happening [on],’ he says, ‘I do expect that this will have large consequences.’”

Morano pointed out that other areas also are experiencing unusual circumstances.

He cited, from the article, the fact that the region’s tundra still was covered 80 percent with snow as of July 12.

WND recently reported a United Nations official is calling for an “ark” to save the world from global warming.

Patricia Espinosa, the executive secretary of U.N. Climate Change, was speaking at a recent conference at the Vatican hosted by Pope Francis.

Morano noted Espinosa urged the world “to make the fundamental, transformative changes necessary” to fight “global warming.”

The Vatican’s International Conference was titled “Saving our Common Home and the Future of Life on Earth.”

“If we truly want to make the fundamental, transformative changes necessary to combat climate change, perhaps what we need then is not a physical ark, but an ark of ambition for #climateaction,” she said on social media.

Espinosa echoed former U.N. climate chief Christiana Figueres, reported Morano.

Figueres called for “centralized transformation” that will make things “very different” for life on the plant.

Espinosa said: “I want to begin by discussing a narrative that is common to many cultures and faith communities throughout the world. It’s the story of a great flood that took place long ago. While different cultures tell it in different ways, most outline how humankind not only had warning that rising waters were coming, but that those warnings were ignored. Now, let me be clear: I don’t propose we begin building an ark—at least not a physical one—but it’s hard to ignore some parallels with today. Every day we are seeing evidence of climate change and its devastating impacts on populations around the globe.”

She said climate change and the world’s response to it “raises larger questions about who we are, why we’re here, and where we’re collectively going.”

“Climate change is about morality: who are we to willingly destroy the ancient and intricate beauty of the world? Climate change is about legacy: who are we to leave a debt of neglect to an unborn generation?”

WND reported last year when Figueres was in Germany for a climate summit and laughed off questions about her call for a globally centralized planning structure.

Morano said he asked her about her message to President Trump and her own calls for a U.S. “centralized transformation” that “is going to make life of everyone on the planet very different.”

Her comment:


Morano: “What about [your call for U.N.] ‘centralized transformation’? What about people who might be afraid the U.N. is essentially going to be a climate central power?”

Figueres: Loud laugh.

Morano: “That is your response?”

Figueres: “Now that is real humor.”

She continued to laugh as she got into the waiting car.

But it wasn’t so long ago that she made the proposal.

According to the Tom Nelson blog, it was in 2012 when she said of her work, “It is the most inspiring job in the world because what we are doing here is we are inspiring government, private sector and civil society to [make] the biggest transformation that they have every undertaken.

“The Industrial Revolution was also a transformation, but it wasn’t ‘a guided transformation from a centralized policy perspective.’ This [U.N. climate change action] is a centralized transformation that is taking place because governments have decided that they need to listen to science. So it’s a very, very different transformation and one that is going to make the life of everyone on the planet very different.”

WND reported when Al Gore used the extreme results of “Superstorm Sandy” to support his contention that sea waters are rising significantly.

The claim is in the sequel to his 2006 movie “An Inconvenient Truth.”

The original movie wasn’t without controversy, as a judge in the United Kingdom said it could be shown to schools only if they alert students to nine statements “that are not supported by current mainstream scientific consensus.”

In the promotions for “An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power,” critics have found yet another misstatement by Gore.

According to the Media Research Center’s Newsbusters, Gore claims in his film that the flooding caused by Superstorm Sandy at the site of the Twin Towers memorial in New York City is a fulfillment of his prediction in his original movie that a rise in the ocean level would flood the site.

But that isn’t what happened.

In his 2006 film, he said, illustrated by an animation, “If Greenland broke up and melted, or if half of Greenland and half of West Antarctica broke up and melted, this is what would happen to the sea level in Florida.”

Then he showed animations of what he believed would happen to San Francisco, the Netherlands, Beijing and other places.

Turning to Manhattan, he said, “This is what would happen to Manhattan; they can measure this precisely.”

The animation shows water reaching the 9/11 memorial.

But Newsbusters argued Gore has twisted his original words to make it appear his prediction about Manhattan came true.

In a newly released clip from the movie, he said: “Ten years ago when the movie ‘An Inconvenient Truth’ came out, the single most criticized scene was an animated scene showing that the combination of sea level rise and storm surge would put the ocean water into the 9/11 memorial site, which was then under construction. And people said, ‘That’s ridiculous. What a terrible exaggeration.’”

The movie then shows news footage of Superstorm Sandy water reaching the memorial site.

See Al Gore:


Newsbusters pointed out the original prediction “was not about extenuating circumstances of a storm like Sandy slamming into New York or any ‘storm surge’ at all.”

The report noted the latest maps show that Greenland still has ice 11 years after Al Gore’s prediction of catastrophic melt.

Even scientists dispute Gore’s contention that Superstorm Sandy was the product of “manmade climate change.”

Gore also told an audience in 2009, for example, that “the entire north polar ice cap during some of the summer months could be completely ice-free within the next five to seven years.”

He also predicted increasing temperatures would cause Earth’s oceans to rise by 20 feet, a claim many scientists say is utterly without rational basis.

Popa: “Tudose? A plecat de două zile din partid și a uitat că a fost social-democrat, ba chiar prim-ministru al unui Guvern susținut de PSD.”



Fostul premier al PSD, Mihai Tudose, în prezent la Pro România, a lansat o serie de atacuri la adresa PSD și a lui Liviu Dragnea. Replica incendiară vine din partea europarlamentarului PSD Răzvan Popa, cel care îl acuză pe Tudose că a plecat de două zile din partid și acum a uitat că a fost social-democrat.

”Halal acel politician care se pretinde social-democrat, dar care acordă mai multă atenție instituțiilor de forță decât politicilor publice îndreptate către marea masă a cetățenilor. PSD este un partid totuși care a acordat suficient respect instituțiilor din această zonă și o face și acum.

Mihai Tudose a plecat de două zile din partid și a uitat că a fost social-democrat, ba chiar prim-ministru al unui Guvern susținut de PSD. Dacă nu ar fi uitat, ar fi vorbit despre alocările de la Educație sau Sănătate și despre creșterea alocațiilor. Mihai Tudose nu a renunțat doar la PSD, a renunțat la valorile social-democrației”, a spus Răzvan Popa.

Dosarul lui Cristian Borcea este aproape de finalizare, în contextul în care se fac actele finale înainte de adoptarea soluţiei, a afirmat procurorul-şef al DIICOT, Felix Bănilă, după şedinţa de bilanţ pe anul 2018 a instituţiei.

Şeful DIICOT a vorbit, miercuri, despre dosarele de interes ale instituţiei şi a arătat că dosarele protestelor din 10 august 10 august şi al traficului de organe din Ilfov sunt într-o fază incipientă şi se lucrează, în vreme ce dosarele Black Cube, Sky News şi cel care îl vizează pe Cristian Borcea sunt aproape de final.

“Legat de cauza 10 august, după cum bine ştiţi, sesizarea a fost a Jandarmeriei. Este o sesizare destul de amplă, iar una dintre faptele sesizate vizează şi modalitate de finanţare. Dosarul e într-o fază incipientă. S-au solicitat documente de la instituţiile publice şi au fost şi persoane cu care s-a discutat”, a dezvăluit Bănilă.

Despre dosarul traficului de organe de la Ilfov, şeful DIICOT nu a dorit să comenteze, precizând că este o cauză în fază incipientă.

“Dosarul cu Borcea privind circuitele fictive, după cum ştiţi au fost făcute percheziţii, se urmăresc circuitele financiare, se fac percheziţii informatice şi în scurt timp cred că vom avea şi o soluţie. La fel şi în dosarul Black Cube, avem un inculpat şi cred că în foarte scurt timp vom avea şi o soluţie. Dosarul Sky News este finalizat şi în acest moment se redactează soluţia, astfel că în foarte scurt timp vom avea un comunicat pe această temă”, a mai spus Bănilă.
