Uh Oh, Santa Is Doomed, As His Reindeer Shrink

Yes, it’s that time of the year where members of the Cult of Climastrology use Christmas to push their insane mental meanderings. Even though they tend to be the same types of political people who lose their minds over Nativity scenes in public. They are the people who call it a holiday tree, not a Christmas tree. Eh, you know their hit parade. But, of course, they still want their paid day off for Christmas.


Another ‘no more Santa’ climate study to frighten children

With #Christmas only a few weeks away, a new study says the Svalbard reindeer are getting weaker and asks if Santa will need more muscle to pull his sleigh. So if your child hears about this so-called calamity from #News reports, remind them it doesn’t matter: Santa Claus uses the species ‘saintnicolas magicalus’, or flying reindeer.

With ostensibly warmer winters, the study notes rain is falling on snow and freezing into ice. That makes it difficult for the animals to get at plant food, leading some to go hungry and some females birthing undersized calves. The adults they tracked in the survey have lost 12 percent of their weight when compared to those born in 1994.

The ecologists behind the survey are from the Norwegian University of Life Sciences, the Norwegian Institute for Nature Research, and the James Hutton Institute. And they’re pointing the finger at #Climate Change.

Of course they are. But, what they mean is not the notion that the climate changes in the long term, such as the flips between warm and cool throughout the Holocene, no, it is that Mankind is mostly/solely responsible. And they’ll take lots of fossil fueled trips to do their research. Or computer models. Whichever.

Anyhow, under the utter threat of doom, the reindeer population on this one little island has almost doubled, from 800-1,400, over the last 20 years.

Unsurprisingly, there are major issues with the prognostication that the shrinking (12% over 16 years) is caused by rain turning to ice and covering the plants. I’ll leave it to you to hit the link and read the flaws in the study. We’ll end on this

Interestingly, the study’s lead author, Prof. Steve Albon, told reporters that in the popular children’s book, “Father Christmas,” it showed Santa’s sled being pulled by two reindeer. He then asked if the animals are smaller and weaker, “will two reindeer be sufficient” to pull St. Nick’s sleigh? Politicizing an animal population survey to frighten children illustrates just one of the many problems with climate research and mainstream media reporting.

Well, of course it’s political. The entire thing is political. It is not science. It pushes an agenda.

Oh, BTW, increasing a population while the resources stay the same can lead to animals “shrinking.” It’s called science.

    LOL. How is weighing reindeer NOT science? Should scientists stop measuring and weighing things because it might offend Vladimir Trumpski and his band of hooting, howling, flying monkeys??

    Weighing reindeer is scientific.

    Saying the reindeer are smaller based on ignoring other data is not science.

    The burden to get at food during the winter hasn’t stopped the reindeer population from growing from 800 to 1,400 in only two decades. The scientists believe the wealth of food in the late spring and summertime from a 1.5-degree Celsius rise in temperatures is allowing the reindeer to thrive and for females to conceive more calves in the fall. It’s also making competition for snow-covered plants more difficult, especially in the winter when plant life is limited.

    The study’s authors have been measuring, weighing and marking the Svalbard calves since 1994. Every winter they return, recapture them and measure their size and weight as adults. That’s how they determined the discrepancy in their sizes. But the theory of rain freezing out the herbivores’ food doesn’t match rainfall statistics for the Svalbard island chain.

    The Cult of Warmists don’t want to deal with real science and evidence.

    So the conditions they mention have never happened before? They have, you say? Then this is just more fortune-telling from from the climate fortune-tellers.
