“THE global warming, which there has been so much talk about for such a long time, seems to have receded a little and we are returning to the standards of the 1980’s and 1990’s…”
― Andrey Smirnov (Icebreaker company rep)
Via The Barents Observer :
It is late June, but the winter has not abandoned the Gulf of Ob. The shallow bay, which houses two of Russia’s biggest Arctic out-shipment terminals for oil and gas, remains packed with fast ice.
It has created a complicated situation, Rosatomflot says. The state company which manages the Russian nuclear-powered icebreakers, confirms that independent shipping in the area is «paralysed» and that LNG carriers and tankers are stuck.
The shipping companies had expected the Gulf of Ob to be free of ice in the course of June and that icebreaker assistance would not be necessary. They were wrong.
According to Rosatomflot, there appears to be a need for icebreaker services in the area at least until after the first week of July. There are currently two nuclear-powered icebreakers in the Gulf of Ob, the «Taymyr» and the «Vaygach». In addition, there are several smaller tugs and icebreakers working in the waters around the Sabetta port.
According to the icebreaker company, this is the first summer in four years that the Gulf of Ob is packed with this much ice.
«The global warming, which there has been so much talk about for such a long time, seems to have receded a little and we are returning to the standards of the 1980s and 1990s,» says company representative Andrey Smirnov.
AND how we have been repeatedly promised the “end of summer Arctic ice” by the Climate Crisis Industry and sycophant mainstream media!
HOW sure they were that your lifestyle and “carbon pollution” was melting away the Arctic and drowning cuddly Polar Bears!

Good to see Trump following through with his election promises “No more money for politicized science!”
And as for radical eco-activist groups like “The Sierra Club”, whose income stream relies on peddling eco-hysteria and climate alarm (supported by the activist EPA), they took fossil fuel money. Lots of it…
From E&E Legal:
“We are delighted with President-elect Trump’s selection of Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt to head the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Mr. Pruitt has led the charge in recent years to confront head on the enormous federal regulatory overreach proposed by the EPA as epitomized by the Clean Power Plan and Waters of the U.S. rule. As a litigator, he also understands how environmental fringe groups like the Sierra Club and the NRDC – who are bankrolled by renewable energy tycoons like Tom Steyer and George Soros – use the state and federal court systems to essentially create new laws through such schemes as ‘sue & settle.’
It is also reassuring that President-Elect Trump has chosen someone from the state ranks, particularly a state so important to energy production, since it’s the states and their citizens who are suffering the most by this Administration’s out-of-control EPA.

“Wind power will never replace conventional generation sources.”
When Dr. Alan Carlin of premier climate change lobby group, the Sierra Club, makes this inference to wind power, you know Industrial wind is on a road to nowhere…other than its ongoing ability to decimate flora/fauna, create devastating fuel poverty and encourage corporate fraud.
The death of the wind industry didn’t come about because BIG Coal felt ‘threatened‘ and set out in some kind of John Grisham conspiracy to wreck it by fair means or foul. No. What kills it is the fact that a growing band of ‘eco-travellers’ – of the kind who once placed their faith in the Wind Gods – have woken up to the scale and scope of the great wind power fraud.
For the climate change Chicken Littles, their quest to rid the planet of dreaded CO2 gas (query how plants and every other living thing survive without it?) has seen the more sensible of their number turn their backs on the wind; and to nuzzle up to nukes, instead.
Dr. Alan Carlin is one such who, despite his background with America’s top environmental lobby, the Sierra Club, not only reached the obvious conclusion (viz…

“I believe it is appropriate to have an ‘over-representation’ of the facts
on how dangerous it is, as a predicate for opening up the audience.”
– Al Gore,
Climate Change activist
2007 marked the high-point of
global warming climate change hysteria. One year before, Al Gore released his Academy Award winning movie “An Inconvenient Truth”.
Inconveniently for Al, by 2007 British High Court judge Michael Burton cited 9 key errors had arisen “in the context of alarmism and exaggeration” in order to support Mr Gore’s thesis on global warming. Judge Burton noted the “apocalyptic vision” presented in the film was politically partisan and thus not an impartial scientific analysis of climate change. It was also ruled, a “political film.”
Al Gore, unfazed by his climate conviction, went on to claim “the entire north polar ice cap during some of the summer months will be completely ice-free within the next five to seven years,”
BBC claimed Arctic summers would be “ice free ‘by 2013′”
National Geographic reported “Arctic Sea Ice Gone in Summer Within Five Years?”
Paul Beckwith of Sierra Club Canada knew, without a shadow of doubt, that “Arctic sea ice will vanish in 2013” …

THE INCONVENIENT ARCTIC TRUTH
There is currently as much Arctic summer sea ice today as there was in 2007 :
If Al Gore, BBC, National Geographic, and environmental groups like the Sierra Club can convey such distortions, what other climate falsehoods are they willing to sell you, to push their
global warming climate change agenda?

The Sierra Club took fossil fuel money. Lots of it. How dare it falsely accuse other people of doing this.
Almost exactly a year ago, Time magazine revealed that the Sierra Club had secretly taken
over $25 million in donations from the gas industry, mostly from… Chesapeake Energy – one of the biggest gas drilling companies in the U.S…. [backup link]
Time’s environmental activist reporter, Bryan Walsh, tried his best to spin the story. He portrayed America’s “oldest environmental group” as a passive victim to which embarrassing things just happen.
You see, the Sierra Club doesn’t make strategic decisions with its eyes wide open. Its well-paid executives didn’t calculate, assess, weigh the pros and cons, and then pursue a course of action for which that organization deserves to be held morally answerable.
According to Walsh’s account, the poor little Sierra Club merely sashays through life until one…

PORTAGE GLACIER, ALASKA — As she marvelled at the site of a shrinking Alaska glacier, the newly installed leader of the Environmental Protection Agency said Monday that the president told her that fighting climate change should be her primary focus.
“The president’s main priority for me was to recognize when I was coming in here that this is going to be a significant challenge and one in which the administration was going to begin to tackle,” said EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy.
Only a complete imbecile (i.e. Barack Obama) would believe that he could stop interglacial processes which have been going on for 20,000 years.
Sierra Club in need of a refresher course on the History and Geography of Glacier Bay Park, as documented by their founder John Muir, well before the SUV was invented
Obama is right, the climate changes and climate change is real:
As you enter Glacier Bay in Southeast Alaska you will cruise along shorelines completely covered by ice just 200 years ago.
Explorer Captain George Vancouver found Icy Strait choked with ice in 1794, and Glacier Bay was barely an indented glacier. That glacier was more than 4000 ft. thick, up to 20 miles or more wide, and extended more than 100 miles to the St.Elias Range of mountains.
By 1879 naturist John Muir found that the ice had retreated 48 miles up the bay. By 1916 the Grand Pacific Glacier headed Tarr inlet 65 miles from Glacier Bay’s mouth.
The glacier that filled Glacier Bay during the Little Ice Age began its retreat from the mouth of the bay more than 200 years ago and has exposed a magnificent fjord system about 100 km long. The massive glacier retreated past Sitakaday Narrows ~190 years ago, retreated past Whidbey Passage ~160 years ago, and reached the upper end of the main bay by 1860 (~140 years ago). There the glacier bifurcated and the multibeam data set terminates. The amount of fine sediment reaching the lower bay is largely restricted to local runoff and plankton debris. In addition, the currents through Sitakaday Narrows can be as fast as 7 kt, scouring the bottom of fine sediment. So a long history of morphologies is clearly visible on the bottom.
Are Sierra Club members aware of the extreme glacial retreats and significant climatic changes observed by their founder John Muir in the 19th century? Or like all global warming cult members, are they brainwashed into believing that the climate began in 1976?
It must have been Fred Flintstone’s SUV that ruined the glaciers.
in my opinion future investigation will uncover proofs of the existence in the earlier ages of Sierra Nevada ice, of vast glaciers which flowed to the very foot of the range. Already it is clear that all of the upper basins were filled with ice so deep and universal that but few of the highest crests and ridges were sufficiently great to separate it into individual glaciers, many of the highest mountains having been flowed over and rounded like the boulders in a river. Glaciers poured into Yosemite by every one of its cañons, and at a comparatively recent period of its history its northern wall, with perhaps the single exception of the crest of Eagle Cliff, was covered by one unbroken flow of ice, the several glaciers having united before they reached the wall.
Obama calls people climate change ‘deniers’ because he wants to prove to the world and his estranged father that he and his unelected eco-fascist EPA, armed with economy wrecking draconian emissions controls, can change the climate and stop the interglacial process which has been going on for 20,000 years.
