Top NASA scientist previously claimed all ice will VANISH from the Arctic by this summer

Climate alarmists are everywhere — but real science continues to show that these scaremongers are the ones full of hot air. Back in 2008, a top “climate prophet” from NASA predicted that the Arctic would be free of sea ice by summer 2018. But data from 2017 has shown quite the opposite: Ice mass in the Arctic has been growing — not disappearing, much to the chagrin of climate change propagandists everywhere, no doubt.

In June 2008, James Hansen — then-director of the Goddard Institute of Space Sciences — reportedly told the Associated Press, “This is our last chance.”

Hansen is also known as the “godfather of global warming science” (but perhaps global warming mythology would be more fitting). Before Congress, Hansen further declared that we had long passed the “dangerous level” of greenhouse gasses. Ultimately, the NASA expert concluded that within 5 to 10 years, the Arctic would be “free of sea ice in the summer.”

Despite the fears of major ice melts being propagated by Hansen and other proponents of climate change propaganda, the truth is that sea ice mass in the great north has been increasing. How is it that Hansen, the “godfather” of global warming could have gotten it so wrong?

Whatever the reason, over the last decade reports, have continuously shown that sea ice mass is not under siege — though that is what the alarmists want you to believe. In September 2017, shocking data from Greenland showed that sea ice mass had increased by a staggering 40 percent since 2012.

But that’s not all: As Natural News writer Tracey Watson revealed, sea ice mass has been trending upwards for years. Reports from different agencies in 2015, 2014 and 2013 all showed similar trends: Arctic ice mass was increasing by leaps and bounds — not melting away into nothing as the propagandists promised.

Back in 2013, the Daily Mail reported:

Some eminent scientists now believe the world is heading for a period of cooling that will not end until the middle of this century – a process that would expose computer forecasts of imminent catastrophic warming as dangerously misleading.

The same article notes that an intense debate was triggered when Mail on Sunday revealed that global warming has been in a state of “pause” since 1997. In 2013, the “pause” had been accepted as real by every major research center — yet there is more propaganda surrounding global warming now than ever.

That same year, Daily Mail also “revealed that temperatures are about to drop below the level that the models forecast with ‘90 percent certainty.’”

In other words, global warming as we’ve come to know it is, essentially, a farce. While temperatures were, at one time, trending upwards, recent data has consistently shown that is no longer the case. But rather than admit the truth, it seems like these climate change maniacs would rather try to force the data to fit into their paradigm. While no one likes to be wrong about things, these so-called scientists are playing with fire by pretending that reality doesn’t exist.

As Natural News founder, Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, explains, carbon dioxide — the most popular climate change scapegoat — is essential for plants to flourish across the globe. It’s a key element of photosynthesis, which is what gives plants life. The reality is without CO2, we’d be in for a bad time.

As Adams writes, “While climate change alarmists absurdly claim CO2 is a pollutant, they neglect to tell you that without CO2, we would all die of starvation because every ecosystem on the planet would almost instantly collapse. If CO2 were dropped to zero, Earth would become a barren global desert of death entirely incapable of supporting human life at all.”
