Government Climate Inflation | Real Science
Much of the popular hysteria about climate is due to government officials exaggerating the historical nature of the event. For example, every time there is a fire in Colorado, the governor tells the press that it is the most destructive fire in Colorado’s history. This misinformation gets spread by CNN and becomes part of the permanent McKibben/Masters/Romm legend – and is repeated by the press thousands of times, despite the fact that there is no truth to it.

It happened again yesterday in Longmont.
Rolling Stone Takes Industrial Grade Stupid To New Levels | Real Science
The rumors about Antarctica losing mass are from some fatally flawed gravity studies from the University of Texas a few years ago, done by people who were too stupid to know that glacial rebound causes the bedrock below the glaciers to change elevation. Their legacy of junk science continues to grow and expand.
2009 Shock News : Arctic Ice Is All Rotten | Real Science
Every year the experts tell us that the ice is rotten and almost gone, and will be completely gone in 2008, 2010, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 ….

Yet for some reason we have the most ice in seven years.
Better Get your Woollies!
No doubt about it. The Earth’s climate is cooling!

One of the most prescient indicators clearly shows it, namely the Danish Meteorological Institute’s daily mean temperatures for the Arctic area north of the 80th northern parallel. They have been measured for over 50 years which shows a long-term average of 90 days with the air temperature above freezing.

The year 2013 has seen a dramatic departure from that routine. In 2013, the summer (above freezing temperatures) lasted for only 45 days, one half of the average number of days. Not only did the frost-free days start much later than on average this year, they also ended much earlier, see the figure below. In fact, the frost-free period seen this year was significantly shorter than in other year since 1958, when the recordings began.
