Arctic sea ice delusions strike the Mail on Sunday and Telegraph | Dana Nuccitelli | Environment |
Based on their history of shoddy reporting, the safest course of action when reading a climate article in the Mail on Sunday or Telegraph is to assume they're misrepresentations or falsehoods until you can verify the facts therein for yourself.
Arctic ice melt IS a problem because Right-wing newspapers smell, explains Guardian climate expert – Telegraph Blogs
The main story is this: for well over two decades now, a dishonest, highly politicised scientific establishment, in bed with scaremongering green NGOs, shyster politicians, rent-seeking corporations and ignorant, irresponsible media outfits has been warning the world of a terrible environmental threat variously called "global warming" or "climate change" which only exists in the form of computer projections. As time has progressed, so the doomy prognostications of these computer models (GCMs) have begun looking less and less plausible, leaving that dwindling body of experts who still believe in their accuracy looking more and more foolish.

This is the context in which the Arctic ice stories above need to be judged.

How would you like your yard to be covered in ice? Would one-meter thick make you happy?

No? So why is it desirable to have the Arctic covered in ice?
