"It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it."


   Some of us form our opinions based on new information we receive and combine that information with what we already believe. Some combine this new information with what we assume to be fact. Some reject new information outright if it doesn't agree with what we believe. Some do not want any additional information because reevaluating an issue is just too difficult.

   Appearing on this page is contradictory information that should cause some new thinking to take place, if you are so inclined.This page is not intended to state an opinion one way or another, but to provide information worth contemplating, at the least.

"The scientific theorist is not to be envied. For Nature, or more precisely experiment, is an inexorable and not very friendly judge of his work. It never says "Yes" to a theory. In the most favorable cases it says "Maybe," and in the great majority of cases simply "No." "

Albert Einstein

   I have been around enough to realize that many predicted catastrophes looming just over the horizon were / are due to selective data analysis, either intentionally to verify one's already established beliefs or goals, on unintentionally. On this page I elected to cover the arctic ice debate. Today, we "know" the the arctic ice is disappearing, probably forever. We know this is due to climate change, and climate change is due to mankind's greenhouse gas emissions. I will not get into this debate, for that would take an entire web site. For that I suggest doing your own research, focusing on both for and against your current position. These news clippings were taken from Tony Heller (realclimatescience) on YouTube, where he narrates the reasoning for his positions in greater detail.

“In general, science is never settled, it’s always an ongoing organic process. But they’re trying to abuse the authority of science in order to pursue policy objectives that, for one reason or another, they think are important.”

Patrick Michaels, climatologist and author, and director of the Center for Study of Science at the Cato Institute in Washington, D.C.

I recommend noting the year of the article, the prediction, the estimated year the prediction should become reality for each.
