Read All About it: Al Gore’s ‘melting’ Antarctic claims refuted by reality — Climate Depot’s A-Z Global Warming Report counters Gore

Poor Al: Antarctica has been cooling and sea ice extent has been at or near record extent in past few summers’

Al Gore’s trek to Antarctica with global warming activists Richard BransonNASA’s James Hansen and Climategate’s KevinTrenberth among many others, is designed to alarm the public that somehow something is amiss there. Gore is warning of a melting continent.

“The ice on land is melting at a faster rate and large ice sheets are moving toward the ocean more rapidly. As a result, sea levels are rising worldwide,” Gore wrote on January 31 during his visit to Antarctica. [See: Gore in Antarctica! Warns of rapid melting and rising seas! See more reports on Gore’s Antarctic trip here.]

But beginning on page 7, Climate Depot’s A-Z Climate Reality Check makes a mockery of Gore and company’s claims. The vast majority of Antarctica is cooling and gaining ice, according to recent peer-reviewed studies and data. As for sea levels, Gore is apparently clueless on the latest sea level data. See: European Space Agency global sea level reveals ‘two year long decline was continuing, at a rate of 5mm per year’ & ‘In August 2011, NASA announced that global sea level was dropping and was ‘a quarter of an inch lower than last summer.’ [See related Gore reports: Climate Depot’s Point-By-Point Rebuttal to Gore’s Highbrow Scientific Arguments & Greens Give Gore 2 Thumbs Down: Gore’s climate ‘reality’ show faces strongly negative reviews from his fellow global warming activists]

Except from page 7 of Climate Depot Special Report: A-Z Climate Reality Check — ‘The claims of the promoters of man-made climate fears are failing’

ANTARCTIC: The Antarctic sea ice extent has been at or near record extent in past few summers and the ice has been expanding. Antarctica is failing to follow the predictions of man-made global warming activists.

Veteran Polar Scientist Heinrich Miller on Antarctica: ‘If anything over last 30 years we have a slight cooling trend’ — Miller: ‘Here almost nothing has changed. At least not near the surface. The average annual temperatures have remained the same. There are of course large fluctuations from year to year. If anything over last 30 years we have a slight cooling trend.

Inconvenient truth: Antarctica sea ice extent growing 1.43% per year — ‘A paper published today in Journal of Climate examines the trend of sea ice extent along the East Antarctic coast from 2000 to 2008 and finds a significant increase of 1.43% per year’

No Trend In Antarctic Temperatures: ‘NASA’s Hansen forecast Antarctica would be fastest warming place on Earth. Instead we have seen a slight downwards trend’

Antarctica sea ice shows accelerating increase over past 30 years: ‘Journal Climate Dynamics finds ‘Antarctic sea ice extent shows an increased trend during 1979–2009′ – ‘…with a trend rate of 1.36 ± 0.43% per decade. Ensemble empirical mode decomposition analysis shows that the rate of the increased trend has been accelerating in the past decade’

Rumors Of Antarctica’s Demise Were Exaggerated: ‘Turns out there hasn’t been any polar amplification after all…Scientist Franzisca Nehring ‘feels global warming hasn’t really affected the ice’ — Nehring: ‘It’s too easy to say that Antarctica is warmed by 1-2 degrees but, I’d infer, that is not really true’

Science Mag: A new reanalysis ‘slashes the estimated loss from East Antarctica, challenging the large, headline-grabbing losses reported lately for the continent as a whole’

NASA Research Reveals Antarctica Ice Sheet Melt Just A Fraction of Climate Model Predictions

More Blows to Warmists! New Antarctica Research: The IPCC ‘Consensus’ Science Is Turned Topsy-Turvy — ‘Scientists have been caught completely unaware of the substantial ice growth occurring below Antarctica, in addition to the obvious massive cumulative ice growth on the surface’

Study finds West Antarctic Ice Sheet May Not Be Losing Ice As Fast As Once Thought

Latest Research Disproves IPCC’s Climategate Hockey-Stick: Antarctica Was Warmer During Medieval Period

Antarctica: ‘Averaged out, sea ice around the Frozen Continent has grown by a little less than 1% per decade’

No Trend In Antarctic Temperatures Since 1979

2008, peer-reviewed paper in AGU (American Geophysical Union) found “A doubling in snow accumulation in the western Antarctic Peninsula since 1850.”

Not Global Warming: Winds are Dominant Cause of Greenland and West Antarctic Ice Sheet Losses – October 3, 2008 — Excerpt: Two new studies summarized in a news article in Science magazine point to wind-induced circulation changes in the ocean as the dominant cause of the recent ice losses through the glaciers draining both the Greenland and West Antarctic ice sheets, not ‘global warming.’

Who is in Antarctica with Al Gore? Here is the list: Maggie L. Fox; Jill Bolte-Taylor; James Hansen; Kevin Trenberth; Hasan Mahmud; Richard Branson; Holly Branson; Sam Branson; Joan Templeman; Ólafur Ragnar Grímsson; Dorrit Moussaieff; James Cameron; Ted Turner; Christiana Figures; Tokyo Sexwale; Yao Tandong; Rosina Bierbaum; Judith Rodin; Juanita Constible; Petter Stordalen; Gunhild A. Stordalen; Sven Lindblad;


Sir Richard Branson goes full on stupid in Antarctica: Branson: ‘The good news is we now know how to heat up the world. We just release an excess of carbon into it’ ‘So any time we’re heading to an ice age again that is what we can do to stop it’

Gore Effect strikes again! Below normal temps awaits Gore, NASA’s Hansen & UN IPCC’s Trenberth for trip to Antarctica– ‘Al [Gore], James [Hansen] and Kevin [Trenberth] are headed to the Antarctic summer, to showcase melting winter ice. Temperatures in Antarctica have been consistently running about 10C below normal for several weeks’ (For more on ‘Gore Effect’ see here.)

Flashback 1932: Antarctic Ice Shelves Had Retreated 30 Miles – ‘going on for centuries’: ‘Now NASA gets hysterical every time a crack appears in an ice shelf’

‘Earth is currently the coldest it has been in at least a decade. Gore, Hansen and Trenberth are travelling to Antarctica to highlight global warming,where temperatures are 5-15C below normal’

Gore to travel to Antarctica with NASA’s Hansen & IPCC’s Trenberth ‘where sea ice has been steadily increasing for 30 years’ & ‘temps declining’ — Gore will attempt to showcase melting ice!? – ‘Given that nobody lives in Antarctica, that sea ice is increasing there, and that temperatures are declining –one might question how anyone there is being impacted by melting ice’

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's all happening now big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale". This site must be on some list at GCHQ/NSA as my AdSense revenue which I rely on has gone down by a third. Either people are not helping out by visiting sponsors sanymore or I am being blackballed like many YouTube sites.

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally I know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know some people in prison now for the content they had on their "secret private group". Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer Wickr. If you really need to, buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA/GCHQ to hack into. Ensure it has no GPS tracking on it and that the battery can be removed. These are usually built for old people to get used to technology storing only a set of numbers to call. However they have no games, applications to install or other ways people can exploit the computer tracking device you carry round with you most of the day - your smart phone. If you are paranoid ensure that you can remove the battery when travelling around and do so to prevent GPS tracking or phone mast triangulation. Even with your phone in Flight mode or turned off, it can be turned on remotely and any features like front or back cameras, microphones and keylogging software can be installed to trace you.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering rubbish) then I could REALLY do with some..

Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box and throw a few pound my way each month, it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why.


Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material.

Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and tag any tweets with alternative news from the mainstream with the #altnews hashtag I created to keep it alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
