“It does look 80 million years old. It looks prehistoric, it looks like it’s from another time!” Simon Boag of the South East Trawl Fishing Association told the Australian Broadcasting Corp.
He indicated it was the first time in living memory a frilled shark had been sighted.
“We couldn’t find a fisherman who had ever seen one before,” he said.
“It has 300 teeth over 25 rows, so once you’re in that mouth, you’re not coming out,” Boag said.
Reminds me of the ‘AGW’ fallacy.
Misguided Objectives Abound
It turns out this US Administration is wrong about Anthropogenic Global Warming, AGW, and their misguided objectives have set us on a course of certain doom.
Reports Per NOAA: U.S. Regional Temperature Trends Since 2000 – Only 2 of 9 Regions Warming. Translated: NOAA reported 7 of 9 recorded regions with colder overall temperatures.
The well documented, accelerated growth of CO2 emissions has not shown any predicted warming across the globe, nor the contiguous U.S.
Actual Temperature Readings
More specifically, the entire continental U.S. between 2000-2014 actually saw a 2.7°F/century cooling.
The modern warming claims by IPCC and dire ‘AGW’ supporters were incorrect again.
Arctic past evidence (from Svalbard) confirms the Medieval Warming Period, MWP, was significantly warmer than hypothetical CO2-induced ‘AGW’ feared by alarmists.
Already, Chinese scientists have confirmed the “MWP” was much warmer than present day. They also specifically say the sun has the major impact with climate.
Climate change always happens naturally. But scientists realized CO2 did not cause the 300-year drought ending the Bronze Age. Additional climate-history information is readily available from this link.
Reports Of Historical Climate
Strangely(?), The IPCC’s ‘AR5’ expert uncovers ‘cherry-picking’ “Climate Science” in latest report.
And from abroad we hear again CO2 Does Not Cause Extreme Climate Change, Confirmed by French researchers.
A new study: “A paper published … in Global and Planetary Change reconstructs temperatures in Northern Fennoscandia [in Arctic Circle] over the past 1,600 years demonstrating that the Arctic was warmer than the present during the Medieval Warm Period. The paper adds to over 1,000 peer-reviewed published non-hockey-sticks finding the Medieval Warm Period was global, as warm or warmer than the present, and that there is nothing unusual, unnatural, or unprecedented about the current warm period … Furthermore, the authors find a natural 70-80 year oscillation of temperatures, similar to the 60-70 year oscillation of the natural Pacific Decadal Oscillation [PDO].” (paper abstract)
Medieval Warming Period
Clearly, the “MWP” was significantly warmer than modern warming. And the “MWP” warmth occurred during an era of low atmospheric CO2 levels, and minuscule human CO2 emissions.
The evidence also reveals extended polar temperatures in advance to the Little Ice Age, LIA, cooling.
One needs to visit previous climate-history postings and historical-temperature charts for the accurate information.
The contiguous U.S. has absolutely no sign of a significant trend in its annual temperature since 1985.
Now, More Than 1000 International Scientists Dissent Over Man-Made Global Warming Claims – Challenge UN IPCC & Gore.
Dissenters The Scientist-Majority
Over 1,000 dissenting scientists are almost 20 times the number of UN scientists (52) who authored the media-hyped IPCC 2007 Summary for Policymakers.
It’s difficult to determine what’s driving ‘AGW’ proponents.
It’s unbelievable Obama will add another $33 billion to reduce ‘AGW’ when there’s no money left with his total $18 trillion debt.
It’s been proven umpteen times that CO2 is a necessary chemical for photosynthesis, and CO2 does not cause ‘AGW.’ There have been many times in the past with significantly higher CO2 and no warming. Even slow CO2 growth in the modern atmosphere has never affected climate.
Alaska Gives Raw Data
Surely one’s heard of the new research discovering ancient tree stumps existing under Alaska’s Mendenhall Glacier for thousands of years. This retreating glacier confirms climate temperatures were much warmer from the Minoan Period to the Medieval Era.
At some point, the climate became cooler, snapping trees at the stump level, and buried them in Mendenhall’s ice for centuries. Finally, the stumps were revealed as the climate returned to warmer temperatures in the rebound from the LIA.
This actual climate evidence is corroborated by the ice core dataset from Greenland. As the empirical evidence depicts, the ancient periods of the Minoans, Romans and the Medieval Era was much warmer than present.
This Greenland evidence also reveals temperatures have been in a cooling phase for the last 3,500 years, eventually leading to glacier growth ultimately burying trees and forests.
Alaska’s Mendenhall Glacier, and others, are described in this article. This research adds to the mountain of studies refuting IPCC’s claim ‘AGW’ temperatures are “unprecedented.”
At sometime, the IPCC will have to admit to warmer temperatures in past times in the “MWP,” even though that period had had no man-made generated CO2. Even more importantly, the IPCC will have to admit the earth is a closed-system. No CO2 can escape, nor add to, the entire earth’s bio-system. Every molecule of CO2 has been around for eons, and God has counted every last molecule.
We therefore are being wildly led astray by the media, and certainly the IPCC. What could possibly make this believable?
This Obama administration has obliterated science for politics …
