More climate change hysteria: shifting the poles
By Thomas Lifson
Is there any sort of doom fantasy that can’t be blamed on
What is so remarkable about the cult of doom built around the manmade
The north pole [sic] is on the run. Although it can drift as much as 10 meters across a century, sometimes returning to near its origin, it has recently taken a sharp turn to the east. Climate change is the likely culprit….
Likely, as in not proven, but we think so. And why does the Scientific American think so?
The data do not indicate whether the recent climate changes are man-made, but [Jianli] Chen [a geophysicist at The University of Texas at Austin who first proposed the hypothesis] personally believes the drastic shift in the pole has to be the result of human activities.So it is a personal belief not based on data. It just has to be the cause. Like a religion, except claiming a scientific basis and published as a near certainty by the most prestigious popularizer of science in the United States.
