For you global warming skeptics, here's your proof. Scientists at the Geophysical Institute at the University of Alaska Fairbanks report that during the first decade of the new millennium, 2000 through 2010, Barrow, Alaska gained an average of 3.04 degrees Fahrenheit.
That is what I would expect the LA Times and NY Times to report. But as one of my heroes, Paul Harvey would say, "...now here's the rest of the story..."

During the 1980s a new anti-science pseudo religion called ENVIRONMENTALISM became very popular.
It replaced the conventional deity with THE ENVIRONMENT, which is a kind of mythical earthly Paradise which is worshipped and demanding of constant sacrifices.
It has established Ministries in most countries and a host of activists who impose its dogma on most news outlets.
Wood used as a biofuel could make air pollution worse and cause almost 1,400 deaths a year in Europe, scientists have warned.
Trees grown as a biofuel have been seen as a greener, cleaner alternative to fossil fuels but could be having a detrimental effect on air quality.
According to a new report they release a chemical into the air that, when mixed with other pollutants, can damage human health and reduce crop yields.
Of all the many lies put out by the subsidy-troughing scum-suckers of the wind industry and their greenie fellow travellers, the biggest porkie of the lot is this: that wind turbines are eco-friendly.
In order to believe this tosh, you'd first have to accept the warped view that being eco-friendly can legitimately entail wiping out millions of bats and birds. It is a measure of just how intellectually and morally corrupt Big Green has grown over the last few decades that many self-professed environmentalists actually cleave to this belief. Why else would they expend so much energy trying to defend – or distract from – the indefensible truth: that wind farms around the world are destroying rare species on an industrial scale?
Lisa Jackson’s resignation as administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency has focused attention on the “unfinished agenda” she leaves for this agenda-driven agency’s next director (probably Clinton era assistant EPA administrator and current California Air Resources Board chairwoman Mary Nichols).
One of the most notable leftovers involves an activist think tank that recently informed EPA it intends to file a lawsuit demanding that the agency establish a cap-and-trade system for transportation fuels. The group had petitioned EPA in 2009 to regulate and ration how much motor fuel goes into the U.S. economy from refiners and fuel importers – thereby putting EPA in charge of cars, trucks, boats, trains and planes, to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and prevent alleged “dangerous manmade global warming.” Jackson’s EPA did not respond, leaving the lawsuit and potential regulations to the next administrator.
“Shall I send a cheque to the House of Lords?” Letwin asked LawsonThe UK Met Office has revised its global temperature predictions as a result of a new version of its climate model and climate simulations using it. It now believes that global temperatures up to 2017 will most likely be 0.43 deg C above the 1971 -2000 average, with an error of +/- 0.15 deg C. In reality this is a forecast of no increase in global temperatures above current levels. If the latest Met Office prediction is correct, and it accords far more closely with the observed data than previous predictions, then it will prove to be a lesson in humility. It will show that the previous predictions that were given so confidently as advice to the UK government and so unquestioningly accepted by the media, were wrong, and that the so-called sceptics who were derided for questioning them were actually on the right track. --David Whitehouse, The Global Warming Policy Foundation, 7 January 2013
A year ago guest writer Ed Caryl wrote a report here telling us that Greenland was getting more snow cover, and not less. A year later we take another look to see if the trend is continuing:
For years, the Elites of the West have cranked up the myth of Man Made Global Warming as a means first and foremost to control the lives and behaviors of their populations. Knowing full well that their produce in China and sell in the West model and its consequent spiral downward in wages and thus standards of living, was unsustainable, the elites moved to use this new "science" to guilt trip and scare monger their populations into smaller and more conservatives forms of living. In other words, they coasted them into the poverty that the greed and treason of those said same elites was already creating in their native lands.
