That is a fantastic observation. It also can be used to demonstrate that when you climb Mt. Everest, you actually walk DOWN?

Truly. Between 500 yards and 850 yards of the climb you actually lose elevation. And between mile 3 and mile 3.4 there is a loss of elevation.

And there are a TON of crevices that lose elevation too. I'm surprised more climbers don't injure themselves by falling up to the summit.

No need for the replacement. Barry's agenda was un-needed and un-realistic, and too expensive a waste chasing ghosts.

What makes you believe you are capable of analysing such a complicated scientific subject? I have studied this issue extensively and have come to the conclusion that we do not have the tools at the moment to come to any certainty about complex chaotic systems.

Your analogy is EXACTLY what "climate scientists" are using as the basis for their "theory". Scary that even you could come up with it...

The great thaw of America's north is coming
...
One of the most profound effects of a warming world is underway on US soil – the impact will force thousands to relocate, and have far-reaching, global consequences. Sara Goudarzi reports from Alaska.
...

Could this be a natural process cycle as seen before in Earth's past?

Oh no! Will there be millions of climate refugees? Will the polar bear go extinct? I'm not buying what this clod is selling. The soil in Alaska my thaw but I doubt it will be some Earth shattering result from it.

Penguins devastated by “unseasonably extensive amounts of sea ice.”

David Middleton / 1 day ago October 16, 2017
Guest “drive by” by David Middleton

Alternate Title: “Tarantino does ‘Happy Feet'”


Is Antarctica gaining ice? 01:47

(CNN) A penguin colony in Antarctica has suffered a massive breeding failure, with only two chicks surviving the disaster.

Terre Adélie (Adélie Land) is home to more than 18,000 pairs of Adélie penguins, but this year almost all the seabirds’ babies starved to death, a situation one expert described as “Tarantino does Happy Feet.”

The World Wildlife Fund said unseasonably extensive amounts of sea ice around the colony in East Antarctica had forced the adult penguins to travel further than normal to forage for food.

“This devastating event contrasts with the image that many people might have of penguins,” said Rod Downie, Head of Polar Programmes at WWF. “It’s more like ‘Tarantino does Happy Feet’, with dead penguin chicks strewn across a beach in Adélie Land.”

[…]

I had to double-check both the website and my calendar to make sure this wasn’t from The Onion and that it wasn’t April Fool’s Day.
Too much sea ice —> “Tarantino does ‘Happy Feet'”
If RCP 8.5 doesn’t exterminate Adélie penguins by 2100, too much sea ice will. Apparently Adélie penguins lived in a Goldilocks world for the past 37,000 to 122,000 years. From the end of the Eemian interglacial stage, through the last glacial maximum, on through the Holocene Climatic Optimum, down to the coldest part of the Little Ice Age… Antarctica clearly must have had a perfect Goldilocks sea ice extent… Because penguin evolution is clearly restricted to pristine climatic conditions:



Penguin evolution. March of the Fossil Penguins.

Clearly penguin evolution depended on stable atmospheric CO2 levels…



Cenozoic atmospheric CO2. Older is to the left, x-axis is in millions of calendar years AD (BC). The Mauna Loa instrumental record is depicted by the solid black line at year 0. Oligocene CO2 levels drop from about 800-1,000 ppmv to about 600 ppmv from 32.5 to 30 MYA.

And a stable, unchanging climate…



Cenozoic temperature anomaly. Older is to the right, x-axis is millions of years before present (1950 AD). Earth’s climate rapidly cooled about 34 million years ago.

As usual: Any and all sarcasm was purely intentional.
