Here we go, another alarmist prognostication
(SMH) One of the world’s leading ice experts has predicted the final collapse of Arctic sea ice in summer months within four years.
In what he calls a “global disaster” now unfolding in northern latitudes as the sea area that freezes and melts each year shrinks to its lowest extent ever recorded, Professor Peter Wadhams of Cambridge University has called for “urgent” consideration of new ideas to reduce global temperatures.
This “urgent” prognostication is repeated all around the media and Warmist sites. But, um, wait, what’s this?
That was a prediction from 5 years ago.
That was a prediction from August 12th, 2012.
There was the prediction that sea ice would be gone (most of the prognostications are referring to summer sea ice) by 2012. Here’s one for 2015, made in 2011. There was the one made for 2000. 2008. 2010. You have Al Gore making the prediction that the Arctic sea ice would be gone within 5 years, starting with a prediction in 2007, 2008, then 2009. Hey, if you throw out enough predictions, one is sure to come true. I predict that the Giants will beat the Panthers anywhere from 1 to 30 points Thursday night.
