And Hcap keeps insisting that scientists are above having any political agenda. It would just totally be beneath them. Their refusal to let this fellow attend is just another way of shutting down honest debate. They have to go this route because man-made global warming would not withstand the rigors of real science.

Never said that. Nice to know though, that you are thinking about me!

I will tell you however YOU are much more likely to suffer from political, religious, bias than 98% of those working in the field of GW. And 98% of those GW experts believe humans are a major cause of GW since the industrial revolution began.
And they sure kwetch a hell of a lot less than you

(Of course maybe glaziers melting have only the appearance of melting.)

Global Warming Typo Fix Means Slower Melt For Asian Glaciers

....That's not quite the end of the story, though. The IPCC stands by its overarching message, which is that the world's glaciers are rapidly melting and bad things will happen to people if that continues unabated. But the demise of the Himalayan glaciers is, thankfully, not just a few decades away.

That might convince a 5th grader, or persons with a 5th grade mentality but it don't fly around here, Oingo.

Of course the world is warming up.

Al Gore said so!

Wrong again, as usual. Where I am likely to "err", though, is on the side of caution and skepticism, given all I know about human nature. And I make no apologies for my lack of gullibility.

A scientist responsible for a key 2007 United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report warning Himalayan glaciers would be completely melted by 2035 has admitted that the claim was made to put political pressure on world leaders.

This ruse is coming unglued.

ice is going away from north pole and polar bears are dying

I guess polar bears always die because they do not live forever.

It was worth resurrecting an year old thread just for that kernel of wisdom alone. Thanks so much.

I am just glad we are still alive - since Al Gore said everything would be dead by now. AN INCONVENIENT (UN)TRUTH

Don't knock Wisdom when someone is compassionate enough to try to introduce you to her for the first time in your life.

https://polarbearscience.com/2017/02...-almost-30000/

This means the adjusted 2015 global estimate for polar bears should be about 28,500 (average), a marked increase over the official estimate of 26,500 (average) for 2015 — and an even larger increase over the 2005 estimate of about 22,500 (average), despite the dramatic loss of summer sea ice since 2007 that we hear about endlessly.

It is increasingly obvious that polar bears are thriving despite having lived through summer sea ice levels not predicted to occur until 2050 – levels of sea ice that experts said would wipe out 2/3 of the world’s polar bears (Amstrup et al. 2007; Crockford 2017 v3).


Hmm..., who to believe, Cappy or polar bear experts? A close one indeed.
