Arctic Warming

7 November 2011
Climate change

One of the big scaremongering stories in recent years has revolved around the warming summer waters of the Arctic Ocean – as a result of warm surface water perculating around the ocean conveyor belt system transferring warm tropical waters into the far north. What the fond of cuddling up to AGW people fail to tell the public is that the Arctic Ocean has warmed up before – quite recently. Naval logs from the RN, for example, record this happening in the first half of the 19th century, and Hubert Lamb reported on this occurring in the 1930s. The return of sea ice in quantity in the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s led to modern researchers, focussed too heavily on internet information sources, to assume that modern warming and the sea ice melting that has occurred in the 1990s and 2000s was something novel – when it was not. The fact that the Met Office has an archive of past temperature data, in written form, including RN ship logs, simply shows that people nowadays are ignorant of a vast body of information in books and articles from the past – and have no intention of getting their heads around them. Even to the extent of not reading HH Lambs several books on the subject.
