- Meteorologist Watts: Claims of ‘unprecedented’ high temps in Arctic & Antarctic are NOT based on actual temperature reading but ‘a model simulation’ from ‘a single day weather event’
Meteorologist Anthony Watts: Claims the "Arctic and Antarctic, had experienced 'unprecedented' high temperatures...can’t be verified since they were the results from a set of weather model simulations, indicating variations of above-normal temperatures for the regions, not actual surface temperatures measured by ground-based weather stations."
The claims of record hight temps include this disclaimer: "Simulation of temperature differences from normal centered over Antarctica from the American (GFS) model."
Watts: "That’s right, it isn’t temperature that actually measured at the surface of that forlorn icecap, it’s a model simulation of temperature from a single climate model, the GFS model...We don’t have actual weather data in many places at the North and South poles...The weather data we do have may be compromised or intermittent due to harsh weather conditions affecting ground-based weather stations."
"Compared to larger 100+ years of climate data for the globe, we have maybe 40 years of data for the poles at best...Yet, somehow, climate scientists are “alarmed” and “flabbergasted” at a single day weather event simulated from a computer model." ... "Model simulations simply aren’t evidence."
- STUDY: Polar bears continued to thrive in 2021 – Bear population increases to 32,000, up from about 26,000
Recent survey results bring the average global population estimate to at least 32,000, with a wide range of potential error. ... These additions bring the global population total to almost 32,000, up from about 26,000, albeit with a wide range of potential error.
• Results from the 2017–2018 survey of the Davis Strait subpopulation revealed numbers are stable at about 2,015 bears (range 1,603–2,588), but bears were found to have been fatter than they had been in 2005–2007, with good cub survival.
- 2021 State Of The Climate Report: It was not a good year for the climate narrative
Heller: "This past year was a disaster for them scientifically – but based on polling they were highly successful with their propaganda."
2021 climate facts: According to the National Snow and Ice Data Center in Boulder, Colorado, Arctic sea ice extent finished the year at the highest level since 2003.
Arctic sea ice extent is about the same as it was in 1991. ... There has been no trend in Arctic sea ice extent for the past fifteen years.

- CNN: ‘Arctic Ocean began warming in 1900, decades earlier than previously thought’ – Reveals ‘worrisome’ ‘flaws’ in climate models
CNN: The Arctic Ocean has been warming since the onset of the 20th century, decades earlier than instrument observations would suggest, according to new research. The study, published Wednesday in the journal Science Advances, found that the expansion of warm Atlantic Ocean water flowing into the Arctic, a phenomenon known as "Atlantification," has caused Arctic water temperature in the region studied to increase by around 2 degrees Celsius since 1900.Francesco Muschitiello, an author on the study and assistant professor of geography at the University of Cambridge, said the findings were worrisome because the early warming suggests there might be a flaw in the models scientists use to predict how the climate will change. "The reconstructions suggest a substantial increase in the Atlantic Ocean heat and salt transport into the Nordic Sea at the beginning of the 20th century, which is not well simulated by (climate models)," Rong Zhang, a senior scientist at NOAA's Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory, who was not involved with the study, told CNN. "It's important to understand the cause of this rapid Atlantification, as well as the discrepancies between the model simulations and the reconstructions."#Scott Adams: "Fake News Play of the Year: CNN posts an article that debunks human-caused climate change (or at least the models), so they do it on Thanksgiving so no one notices and give it a misleading framing to conceal it."

Are GHG emissions & air pollution correlated? ‘Countries with highest cumulative GHG emissions from 1970-2021 have cleanest air — while those with lowest cumulative GHG emissions have the dirtiest air’

Great Food Reset: Irish Gov’t Seeks to Sacrifice 200,000 Cows To Reach Net Zero Climate Goals – Kerry targets U.S. farmers Next!
The plans have been long in the making, with the proposals first outlined back in 2021. A report at the time suggested that up to 1.3 million cattle would need to be culled in order to reduce greenhouse gases in the Irish agriculture sector to sustainable levels. ... A consortium named the Food Vision Dairy Group was created to examine ways for Irish farmers in the dairy sector to meet climate targets, and a proposal of a €5,000 compensatory payment per cow was considered.

Say What?! The Hill: ‘Climate paradox’ – New study finds emissions cuts ‘will make the earth much hotter in the short term’
The Hill: Climate paradox: Emission cuts could ‘unmask’ deadly face of climate change, scientists warn - One the one hand, cutting fossil fuel pollution is necessary for avoiding severe destruction over the long term. But such cuts will make the earth much hotter in the short term. ...
These cuts remain one of the only examples of successful cuts to climate-warming pollution, but the new study found that those pandemic-era cuts in air pollution led to a rise in global temperatures. The findings, published on Wednesday in the journal NPJ Climate and Atmospheric Science, unveil a stark paradox at the heart of human-caused climate change.
