USS Skate surfaced at the North Pole in 1959 and numerous other locations during Arctic cruises in 1958 and 1959 http://wp.me/p7y4l-1UQ
Ice at the North Pole in 1958 and 1959 was not so thick. I blame capitalism and CO2.
New video of submarine surfacing through ice.

ARCTIC CIRCLE (March 10, 2016) USS Hartford (SSN 768) surfaces in the Arctic Circle near Ice Camp Sargo during Ice Exercise (ICEX) 2016. Servicemembers and civilians assigned to Arctic Submarine Lab clear ice from the hatches to allow for surface access.
ICEX is a five-week exercise designed to research, test, and evaluate operational capabilities in the region. (U.S. Navy video by Mass Communication Specialist 2nd Class Tyler Thompson and Staff Sgt. Edward Eagerton/Released
Tesla Powerwall hits the wall. Ouch.
The viability of large capacity (base load) renewable energy largely depends on the ability to store its energy for when the wind don’t blow and the sun don’t shine.
If Tesla can’t get the home-economic model right, how are renewables ever to replace cheap, efficient, reliable carbon based energy?!
Answer. They can’t, don’t and won’t. The age of collective green energy eco madness will soon grind to an embarrassing halt.

Tesla has quietly removed all references to its 10-kilowatt-hour residential battery from the Powerwall website, as well as the company’s press kit. The company’s smaller battery designed for daily cycling is all that remains.
The change was initially made without explanation, which prompted industry insiders to speculate. Today, a Tesla representative confirmed the 10-kilowatt-hour option has been discontinued.
“We have seen enormous interest in the Daily Powerwall worldwide,” according to an emailed statement to GTM. “The Daily Powerwall supports daily use applications like solar self-consumption plus backup power applications, and can offer backup simply by modifying the way it is installed in a home. Due to the interest, we have decided to focus entirely on building and deploying the 7-kilowatt-hour Daily Powerwall at this time.”
The 10-kilowatt-hour option was marketed as a backup power supply capable of 500 cycles, at a price to installers of…

Mae West famously said,
“I’ve been rich, and I’ve been poor. Believe me, rich is better.
As a historical climatologist, I can paraphrase that to say about climate,
“It’s been warm, and it’s been cold. Believe me, warm is better.”
I think the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) claim that human CO2 is causing warming is wrong. They created the result they wanted, which wasn’t designed to deal with warming but to stop economic development and reduce the population. They selected the data and mechanisms necessary to prove their hypothesis and manipulated the data where necessary, including rewriting climate history. The wider evidence, which is only examined when you move outside their limited definition of climate change, is that the world is cooling.
The major rewrite of history involved elimination of the Medieval Warm Period (MWP). One of the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) gang…
