An Antarctic blizzard has halted an Australian icebreaker’s bid to reach a Russian ship trapped for a week with 74 people onboard, rescuers said on Monday.

The Aurora Australis had to return to open waters about 18 nautical miles from the stranded Akademik Shokalskiy because of poor visibility, the Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA), which is co-ordinating the rescue, told Reuters
A Chinese icebreaker, the Snow Dragon, has been halted by thick ice within sight of the ship. The Snow Dragon had a helicopter on board that could be used to rescue passengers if the Aurora Australis failed to get through, AMSA said earlier, but the aircraft was grounded by the snow.

”We can’t fly a helicopter in these conditions either. There is essentially nothing we can do at this point of time,” Martin said.

The Aurora Australis would have to wait for the weather to improve before a second rescue attempt, she added.Rescue of Akademik Shokalskiy stopped by Antarctic blizzard, cbc news Dec 30, 2013 12:35 AM ET quote from Antartic news early 30 december

While reading an excellent bloggarticle on wattsupwiththat, I noticed a link that say all about the CO2-alarmists incapacity of theories of Science. Read the quotes and links below as well as The planetary tidal influence on climate fiasco strong armed science tactics are overkill due process would work better, wattsupwiththat.com 2014/01/17 the discussion there is more than interesting…

Please remember that supressing true facts aren’t the best way of putting forward an unrealistic scenario!

extraordinary news, the scientific journal Pattern Recognition in Physics has been unexpectedly terminated, a “drastic decision” taken just ten months after it started.

The publisher appears to be shocked that in a recent special issue the scientists expressed doubt about the accelerated warming predicted by the IPCC. For the crime of not bowing before the sacred tabernacle, apparently the publishers suddenly felt the need to distance themselves, and in the most over-the-top way. The reasons they gave had nothing to do with the data, the logic, and they cite no errors. There can be no mistake, this is about enforcing a permitted line of thought.Science paper doubts IPCC so whole journal gets terminated, joannenova.com.aug 2014 january A skeptic blogg. Yes, so one needs to go back to basic. True origin lines from journal itself….

Please read the text of the journal:
Recently, a special issue was compiled entitled “Pattern in solar variability, their planetary origin and terrestrial impacts”. Besides papers dealing with the observed patterns in the heliosphere, the special issue editors ultimately submitted their conclusions in which they “doubt the continued, even accelerated, warming as claimed by the IPCC project” (Pattern Recogn. Phys., 1, 205–206, 2013).

Copernicus Publications published the work and other special issue papers to provide the spectrum of the related papers to the scientists for their individual judgment. Following best practice in scholarly publishing, published articles cannot be removed afterwards.

We at Copernicus Publications wish to distance ourselves from the apparent misuse of the originally agreed aims & scope of the journal and decided on 17 January 2014 to cease the publication of PRP. Of course, scientific dispute is controversial and should allow contradictory opinions which can then be discussed within the scientific community. However, the recent developments including the expressed implications (see above) have led us to this drastic decision
Termination of the journal Pattern Recognition in Physics, Pattern recognistion in physics january 2014

As I written before:
”Weather is and has always been a much more complicated thing to make a forecast of than CO2-believers have understood. There are so many more factors involved than are included in so called data models.

Please observe this:
Extent for North Pole Ice 31 december 2013 12.341.252 km2

Compare this with the Area of United States of America approx 9.830.000 km2
This gives us the fact that the Sea Ice Extent in North Pole in 31 december 2013 was more than 125 % of US total land area..

Please notice that the estimated figures for Ice Bear north the pole circle is 20-22,000…. this means that each Ice Bear have approximated 560 km2 each to walk on without having to meet an other Ice Bear.

That might not seem a lot when using the scale above. But please remember that the area for New York City is 1.213 km2 which gives a figure af close to half the area of New York City for each individual Polar Bear to walk on.

So Greenpeace and WWF ought to rethink the need for ‘saving the Polar Bears’ and to present where on Earth the collected money has been used!

Please tell us: Where have all the money gone? Money collected due to false information of reality.

Can’t help not understanding how it’s possible for so many alarmists around the world not to have learnt the Archimedes’ principle every student must have been taught not once but several times 😛

That fools don’t listen nor comprehend the impacts of the stupid ‘experts’ travelling to Antarctica in order to prove melting Polar Ice but instead being stucked up in SUMMER ice when their ship froze into ice…… well Reality exceeds poems No questions in that respect…..:

Record cold doesn’t disprove global warming, CNN January 7 2014 Might be true – but Human history does! In 980 – 1431 AD the Greenlanders had warmer as did all in Northern hemisphere before the so called Little Ice Age There never ever been a risk of human caused global warming!


, simple explanation

Archimedes’ principle is a physical law known since Archimedes’ days:
All objects reduced, pressed or held down in liquid puch away the equvivalent size of the object’s mass.
Please observe that it’s a difference between weight due to gravity and mass. While both can be using the same ‘weight’ in daily speaking, the former isn’t a physical term.
* Mass, measured in kilogram is the amount of material the object in question has.
* Weight is the gravititational influence on an object. That’s a forse and due to that weight is measured in Newton.

In ordinary life the differences aren’t clear. Kilogram/Pounds/Stones is used in daily speaking for both.

Archimedes principle goes for ice-cub in drinks as well as for Ice shields due to Ice Age as well as for Boats or Ice sheet in Sea and remains of Ice Ages long ago such as Glaciars on land! When Ice melt the melted Ice never ever will rise levels neither in drink-glasses nor in Sea! Landrise which is a retarded movement starts at once. Following a quicker uprise-curve in beginning – slowing down over time.

What we know about Earth
Earth as we know it is 12 756 km in diameter at the equator.
If you take a rope and let 10 km be equal to 1 cm, half the diameter will be 6 meter and 37,8 cm long. Using the rope to draw a circle in sand you will have a large circle. But it’s only the outher parts that we humans have investigated directly. For example Mount Everest can be represented by a small ‘bup’ 0,85 cm high and the Mariner Grave a 1,09 cm down-bup from the line….

We humans have knowledge, to some extent, of what’s inside. We can calculate the Earth’s gravity (oh well the latter has recently been discussed due to black material) and we know what the Earth’s interior largely composed. We know of a number of natural forces, physical laws and mathematical calculation. But by and large, what we know about the Earth can be represented of the outher parts of your drawn circle.

A lot of young, young mature as well as educated people under age 50 today lack knowledge enough to understand texts they read. That’s a big problem.
An even worse problem is that a lot of young, young mature as well educated people under age 50 today lack understanding of Mathematic basics. Such as ‘reading’ and understanding Mathematical curves, Statistic and so on.

Arctic Sea Ice Extent   31 december 2013 source: http://www.ijis.iarc.uaf.edu/en/home/seaice_extent.htm

Arctic Sea Ice Extent
31 december 2013
source: http://www.ijis.iarc.uaf.edu/en/home/seaice_extent.htm

The image above from Arctic Sea Ice Extent, ijis.iarc.uaf.edu is a typical exemple of what all who study Mathematical Statistics are taught not to use. It’s an image not showing the correct proportions. For those who can read curves that might not be an issue. For those who can’t it is.


What’s is important to understand reading the curves is the simple fact that Pole Ice Extent in North Pole as well as South Pole depend on season. Each year the summer ‘heat’ warms up the air and the surface so the Ice Extent decline. Each year the winter ‘colder temperatures’ makes the Ice Extent incline.


Please note that the curves not presenting all facts from actual readings from 1980’s up to now. From Theories of Science view this is an red alert at once.

Neither does is it possible to read from image if the reading of a certain day is made at same hour each day or if it’s an average figure counted from max minus min values or if it’s the max or min value of the day. From Theories of Science view this is an red alert at once.

Also please note that the figures, no matter how they are measured calculated and presented, are from readings made by satellites. What can be measured from satellites are reflexion of ice extent. Not actual extent due to the fact that there are large areas in Arctic as well as Antarctic where there during summertime (in Antarctic when it’s winter in Arctic) often exists melted water up to 20 cm over ice no matter if it’s thin ice or several metre thick sea ice. From Theories of Science view this is an red alert!

Same goes for temperature measurements made by satellites. You can’t get temperatures 2 meters above surface nor can you get the actual figures from under the Ice sheet. All correct figures also needs to be taken at same GPS-point no matter when.

If you are accurate you need to do the reading at same time every day. If you don’t or if you try to ”correct” figures, well that’s no Science involved at all. In Theories of Science this is one of the worst fallacies. A circle proof can never ever prove anything of value. That’s one thing every scholar, scientist or otherwise should have learnt before writing a Master thesis…..


Please observe this:
Extent for North Pole Ice 31 december 2013 12.341.252 km2

Note 1: correct information regarding why CO2 is measured on vulcanos
Swedish Channel 10 showed a BBC-dokumentary from 2013. In Sweden called Hotet från Mega-TsunamisHotet från Mega-Tsunamis, TV10.se

From geologic facts such as readings of CO2 (please look at the white instrument left of a man, image 1 of 5) placed all round the world on side of vulcanos by geologists used measuser the differences in CO2 in order to be able to predict uprising threats from vulcanos (!) Please remember that all our Earth thousand vulcanos from early days over their active eruptions and still when ‘dead’ vulcano erupts CO2 into the air.

Information re failures of School System in US and Sweden
Also shown on Swedish TV, Channel 4+, was Waiting for ”Superman” An American documentary by David Guggenheim in 2010. The documentary Waiting for Superman analyzes the failure of American Public School system.

The problems shown in the documentary were almost identical to those of Swedens School System. All schools in Sweden are to follow our School Law as well as our official decided Course plans. In Sweden as well as in US we do have Kommunala skolor Public Schools here owned by our towns/ municipalities as well as Friskolor Independent Schools.

ALL schools of Sweden have to follow the decided Course plans. Earlier all schools in Sweden that weren’t Private Schools were under our Swedish States parasolle. Back in 8 december 1989 our Swedish Riksdag Parliament on suggestion of our Minister of Education at the time Göran Persson, later to become Swedish Prime Minister, to place all schools under each town’s/municipalitie’s parasolle.

Thus making it unfair to students in our Grundskola due to the fact that each town/municipality has own rights according to Swedish Grundlaw Constitution to decide on how much money to spend on each town's/municipality's accounts. Using "cheese planner" and "cake server" the amount of money spent on each student today depends on the will of each town/municipality. We do have same problems in class rooms and schools as seen in US.

The learning in a classroom always depends on the teacher's education and commitment as well as on the possibility in class to have good atmosphere, in other word peace and respect. There are good teachers and bad.

Same procedure as last year?

” in Sweden a tradition for 50 years watching what we call ‘Grevinnan och betjänten’. (No idea what the English origin’s title is)

Can’t helping remembering those two quotes in relation to those so called scholars now saved using more CO2 themselves than normally occurs during any summer in the Antarctic…. but still less open ice than 100 years ago when the exploring of the Antarctic were the new science. Those were the days.

And there are, believe it or not, still media around our World helping those who hadn’t done their homework before heading to the Antarctic spreading non-correct informations ”round and around”:

As the planet marked its fourth hottest year on record, a study published in the journal Nature found increasing levels of carbon dioxide will lead to thinner ocean clouds and reduce their cooling impact, causing temperature rises of at least 5.6F (3C) over the course of the century.

The team of scientists said the findings show some climate models have been too “optimistic” and previous estimates of a minimum temperature rise of only 2.7F (1.5C) could now be discounted. The optimistic models did not properly assess the impact of water evaporation, which sometimes rises only a short distance into the atmosphere and causes updraughts that reduce cloud cover, the study found.

”These models have been predicting a lower climate sensitivity but we believe they’re incorrect,” Professor Steven Sherwood, from the University of New South Wales, told The Sydney Morning Herald.

”The net effect of [climate change] is you have less cloud cover.” Worlds climate warming faster than feard scientist say, telegraph.co.uk 7:14PM GMT 01 Jan 2014
They shouldn’t have tried the last part in the quote. The line regarding cloudes. Professor Steven Sherwood at least received his Bachelor degree in Physics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1987…. he seems to have forgotten all he once must have learnt….
What the so called scientist showed was lacking knowledge of the Watercycle…. Here in Sweden that one used to be taught in 3th grade and then again i 7th-9th grade…..

More quotes from the clowns

Professor: Stuck ship doesn’t mean much, cnn.com/video 2014/01/02 SO the ship doesn’t mean much. In other words risking several ships’s crew in attempt to save the so called scholars doesn’t ….. Not even in my dreams I would have thought it possible for any scholar to be so egocentric.
Btw WHO is Professor Stuck? Which Subject? His credentials with or without a CV doesn’t seem to show up on Google search….

The team was attempting to retrace the steps of geologist Douglas Mawson, who led the Australasian Antarctic expedition between 1911 and 1913, and also to examine how the pristine environment had fared after 100 years of climate changes.

Strong winds sweeping sea ice against one side of the ship pinned it in place at Commonwealth Bay on Christmas Eve.

An attempt on New Year’s Day to evacuate the passengers by helicopter was also abandoned because of heavy rain, strong winds and cloud.

Quote from wattsupwiththat:
Reporting on the environmental movement has always required a certain sense of humor. In an earlier age, explorers who so badly underestimated the expanse of polar ice would surely have perished. But the 74 passengers and crew of the Akademik Shokalskiy are thriving. In this season of new beginnings we have here a chance to appreciate the amazing technologies created by free people. For they allow us to laugh at the folly of our fellow humans, rather than having to mourn their passing. –Editorial, The Wall Street Journal, 2 January 2014

(It isn’t difficult to realize why …) Also, skepticalscience.com is a pro AGW site, so twisted ”facts” are presented there.

Something important: Only a handful of total ~150 active volcanoes around the world are mentioned above, all above sea level. Dormant and ”dead” volcanoes also emit carbon dioxide! Furthermore, there are a large number of ”white” and ”black smokers” below sea level, all emitting carbon dioxide. A count is in progress and today no one know exactly how many that exist. (Real) Scientists are aware that there are a large number of them.

Adding natural decomposing processes we get aprox. 700 Gton/year representing 95-98% of the total annual carbon dioxide cycle.

Mind you – no film script from Hollywood would have been belived had the scholar of climatology gone on a mission without equipment to make a proper weather forecast for the next day…

Watts Up With That?

Today, while shopping at lunchtime for some last minute year end supplies, I got one of the strangest cell-phone calls ever. It was from my friend John Coleman, the founder of the Weather Channel and Chief meteorologist at KUSI-TV in San Diego. He was calling via cell phone from his car, and he was on his way into the TV station early.

He started off by saying, ”Anthony, we have a really strange situation here”.

Then to my surprise, he relayed a conversation he had just had; a person on the Akademik Shokalskiy had reached out, because they didn’t have adequate weather data on-board. At first, I thought John was pulling my leg, but then as he gave more details, I realized he was serious.

”Rescue situation in Antarctic remains unchanged,” the Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) said in an update on Wednesday. ”Helicopter unable to fly in current weather conditions. Raining in area & winds 20-30 knots.”

Australian authorities, who are coordinating the rescue, plan to use the helicopter on board the Chinese-flagged icebreaker Xue Long to bring 52 passengers off the boat, leaving behind its 22 crew members.

They would then be taken by barge from the Xue Long to the Aurora Australis.

AMSA said the latest information was that the Chinese vessel was ”moving and manoeuvring slowly around the ice”, allaying fears that the Xue Long had itself become trapped.

”The Rescue Coordination Centre has no information indicating they are stuck in the ice at this time,” spokeswoman Lisa Martin said.

Passengers on the stranded ship had been following in the footsteps of Australian Sir Douglas Mawson and his 1911-1914 expedition and they greeted the New Year with cheer, singing an anthem they wrote to ring in 2014.Winds, rain put Antarctic ship rescue on hold, Bangkokpost 1 Jan 2014 08.49 local time Bangkok GMT 01.49
