Seventh day in a row for absolute ice records in Antarctica!!

The Antarctic sea ice now covers an area that is larger than United States and Canada combined, or more than twice the size of Europe..S_bm_extent_hires (2)

Another way to look at the ice cover size is, if the landmass of Antarctica is included, the ice cover is larger than Asia.

The amount of ice over last years absolute record is larger in area than the country of Spain.

Notice the ice extent goes all the way up to the 55th latitude, where a change in the albedo from the ice has a substantial cooling effect since a large portion of the sunlight gets reflected rather than absorbed. At the 55th latitude the sun is now 35 degrees above the horizon. The sun in the Arctic by contrast is now only 10 degrees above the horizon at the 80th latitude, so the effect of the Arctic ice is much less important.

One wonder is this going to be mentioned at the United Nations’ Summit on Climate Change September 23 in N.Y.?

The Climate Summit September 23 in N.Y. is expected to gather 125 heads of State or heads of Government.

Notably absent will be Aussie PM Tony Abbott representing 1.12% of the world’s CO2 emissions, Chinese President Xi Jinping with 24.65%, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi with 6%, Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper with 1.48%, German Chancellor Angela Merkel with 3% and Russian President Vladimir Putin with 5.18%.

The absences represent about 43% of the world’s CO2 emissions. Of course, when it comes to real pollution, nobody beats China. A good day in Beijing would be an air alert in the U.S.

Here are the  30 highest daily values for sea-ice in millions of square Kilometers.

Fourth new absolute ice record in a row in Antarctica!! It’s not weather anymore, it’s Climate Change!!

The new record for sea-ice over the 2013 record now covers an area greater than Great Britain!

Meanwhile, the Climate Summit September 23 in N.Y. is expected to gather more than 120 heads of state. Notably absent will be Aussie PM Tony Abbott, Chinese President Xi Jinping, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper and German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

But,  United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has designated Leonardo DiCaprio, as a UN Messenger of Peace with a special focus on climate change. He is their most credible voice since he got his big career break by being hit by an ice berg.

Third day in a row for new record sea ice in Antartctica!!

New records for sea ice down under.

Obama! Look elsewhere for plunder!

CO2 makes it green,

To reduce it is mean.

It is worse than a crime, it’s a blunder.

Obama, Kerry and Hillary Clinton claim that “Climate Change” is the biggest threat to the world today, bigger than Pakistan and its nuclear arsenal threatened, bigger than North Korea and their ambition to build an EMP bomb, bigger than Russia and its ambition to rebuild the Soviet Empire, bigger than ISIS and their murderous rampages, bigger than the horrors in Nigeria. I could go on, but the irony is that CO2 is necessary for all life as we know it, and more CO2 helps stabilize the climate and improve our environment. The ecosystem is severely challenged by cutting down rain forests in Borneo to make bio-fuel plantations, making ethanol from corn just to name two gross examples.  See: /http://lenbilen.com/2014/02/22/co2-the-life-giving-gas-not-carbon-pollution-a-limerick-and-explanation/

And this is what Antarctica looks today.

Antarctic sea ice

Highest ice cover ever recorded in Antarctica! 19.62641 million square kilometers! Third year in a row for new records!

The ice keeps growing and growing: The freezing point of ice is a constant, so it must be getting colder. Are we looking at the beginning of a new “little ice age”?

Here are the amounts of sea-ice for 2014, 2013 and 2012 in millions of square kilometers.

Lemmings and rats, Obama and ISIS.

Everybody have heard about lemming years, when a large number of lemmings follow each other over a cliff, falls down into the sea below and drown. Political analogies abound, and so this has become common knowledge: That’s what lemmings do. But why? By the way, 2012 was a lemming year in Northern Sweden. To explain why, there is an even better example with rats.  When food is plentiful they multiply fast and after about 4 years there are far too many rats for the food supply. No, they do not die of starvation, virtually all the rats get stressed out and die, all in short order, and the cycle starts anew. It used to be a fairly limited supply of food for the rats, people ate what the land produced, and the number of rats were kept below the stress level.  Enter modern day landfills. There is an overabundance of food in a very limited area, so rats congregate there and multiply. Eventually they will hit the stress level die out and the cycle is renewed. Enter the division of rodent control. In their wisdom they put out rat poison to keep the population down. In so doing they manage to keep the rat population just below the stress level, thereby ensuring that every year is a year of plenty of rats rather than every fourth year.

This brings us to Obama and his approach to ISIS. Obama and his lemmings are feeding themselves on the landfill of outdated and toxic liberal ideology that if we are nice to the Muslims they will be nice to us. Even though the DemocRATS would like it to be so, nothing could be further from the truth. ISIS are true followers of Islam as it was “revealed” to Muhammad right before his death following his poisoning. His followers set out on a murderous conquest in 730 A.D. to conquer Mecca and after his death in 732 A.D. they set out to conquer the world, establishing a world-wide caliphate. This dream is still what motivates ISIS taking their cues from the Quran. Islam is a powerful religion, ideology, law, government and mind control all wrapped up in one. You don’t defeat that with bombings, only attacking the root cause will do. Peace with Islam is impossible unless they have a reformation where all references to violence and Jihad are removed and reinterpreted in peaceful terms. If they do not agree to complete freedom of religion they should not be admitted to this country (or to any civilized country for that matter). Barring that, the rats will multiply, and killing them will assure us of a never ending supply of Jihadist warriors.

With all this said, ISIS is still the gnats compared to Iran, that may soon be a nuclear power.

 

ISIS, a “manageable problem” ? Does Obama aspire to be Caliph? A Limerick.

0Obama never ceases to confuse himself and us. In his press conference in Estonia on his way to the NATO summit in Wales he tried to explain  or clarify his remark of last week that “we don’t have a strategy yet” to address the militant group in Syria, Obama said they do have a regional strategy. Ultimately, he said, “our objective is clear, and that is to degrade and destroy ISIL so it is no longer a threat not just to Iraq but also the region and to the United States.”

Fair enough, but then later in the press conference, Obama returned to the topic and said this:

…  if the U.S. is joined by an international coalition, they can “continue to shrink ISIL’s sphere of influence, its effectiveness, its financing, its military capabilities to the point where it is a manageable problem.

Obama: From crisis to crisis;

a “manageable problem” is ISIS.

For it is his belief

he will soon be Caliph;

as cool as a bucket of ice is.

(For those that are curious, Obama uses ISIL, not ISIS. He recognizes the Caliphate lais claim to not only Iraq and Syria, but also Lebanon, ISRAEL, Jordan, Kuwait  and part of southern Turkey, all of which defines the Levant)

Six years since Sarah Palin nomination for VP. This time Sarah Palin for CIC!

Iimg-cs---palin-trig_075049372446t is today six years since the surprise nomination of Sarah Palin for Vice President. Not knowing anything about her except that she had just successfully negotiated a contract for building a natural gas pipeline from Alaska to the lower 48 I watched with interest her debut on the national stage. And there she came, complete with a baby, prominently displayed front and center. Suddenly I saw before my eyes the quote from Isaiah 11:6 (NIV + Septuagint)
The wolf will live with the lamb,
the leopard will lie down with the goat,
the calf and the lion will feed together;
and a little child will lead them.

I searched the internet for the importance of this baby. It was already buzzing with information. One of the first quotes I came across was that “she refused proper prenatal care”. This was when I found out this baby had Down Syndrome. Since we are talking health care reform, are we going to force everybody to submit to “proper prenatal care”? I do not know much about this except that three people I know had tested positive for having a baby with Down syndrome. All three chose to carry the baby to term, and gave birth to perfectly normal babies. One of the babies is now in middle school, one is in college, and one, my niece, just graduated from Med School.

Liberals. It is high time to rethink your opinion of Sarah Palin. The country needs her and women like her more than ever to restore out land. She really does understand how the world works and is not swayed by criticism, assault, arson, life-threats, flattery, money and power.

This country needs women like that.
