Penguin disappearance “cannot be directly attributed to climate change”

But we’ll do it anyway.

Scientists are trying to determine why Emperor penguins in Antarctica have undergone an ‘unprecedented’ failure to breed.

And even though this article in Science admits that “the move cannot directly be attributed to climate change,” it ever so sneakily tries to blame it on global warming anyway, warning that the penguins are “particularly vulnerable to climate change, because warming waters are melting the sea ice where they live and breed.”

However, buried in the rhetoric is a reference to “the periodic warming of the Pacific Ocean.”

Oh, does that mean this may be a natural cycle?

The article also mentions that sea ice has been affected by “a particularly intense El Nino.”

Oh, does that mean that the sea-ice disruption may not have been caused by humans?

Most readers of the Science article are probably not aware that Antarctic waters do indeed warm and cool periodically. Just look at a couple of articles that I’ve posted in the past few years

There’s this one from 12 Oct 2017: “Unusually thick ice in Antarctica – Thousands of penguin chicks starve,” reads the headline.

Unusually thick sea ice in East Antarctica forced the adult penguins to travel further for food. The unfortunate chicks starved to death as they waited for their parents to return.

Or this one from 1 July 2014: “Antarctic sea ice hits second all-time record in a week.”

“The new record is 2.112 million square kilometers above normal.”

Or this one, just 4 days later, on 5 July 2014.
Emperor penguins in Antarctica threatened by melting sea ice.”

(This fearful conclusion is based on “mathematical models.”)

First, Antarctica hits an all-time record for sea ice and then, just 4 days later, the penguins are threatened by melting sea ice?

So which should we worry about? Melting Antarctic ice? Unusually thick Antarctic ice? Ocean warming? Natural cycles?

Or scientific chicanery?

  1. So which should we worry about? Melting Antarctic ice? Unusually thick Antarctic ice?
    No, unusually thick climate scientists.

  2. I heard that scientists also stated that ponds are creating methane gas end hence forwards also contrubute to the climate change direction into hotter earth than wanted. One can expect all kind of arguments, especially from the political progressive parties

    • I can’t understand why environmentalists are so possessed with the protection/preservation of wetlands, which are known to generate methane. If the Earth needs protection against greenhouse-related global warming, then all wetlands should be actively eliminated.

  3. Nothing to do with the largest active volcanic range on the planet hidden underneath the antartic ice then?

  4. Whatever it takes to say which in turn will keep the Funds of the Global Warming Industry flowing into its coffers – is What AGW’S Mouthpiece ‘MSM’ shall always say to steer the masses into continuing to believe and of course – always worry about..

  5. “Penguin disappearance “cannot be directly attributed to climate change”

    Not to mention ‘man-made’ climatechange.

  6. Hang on we’ve got it wrong, the cows pooping all over the world is what’s causing global warming according to some other scientists. But how can this be if glaciers are growing.

  7. It’s totally contradictory and incoherent. The lack of questioning or inquiring of these journalists is impressive. And the ‘extreme’ weather interrupts / disturbs the reproduction of the penguins, but what is extreme for this people?
    The press only transmits news, doesn’t question or argue about these news.

  8. If you read a news report of some place recording the hottest day/month in 133 years, that means no warming for 133 years. It was hotter then than now.
