How Global Warming documentaries fake scenes of glaciers collapsing

I’m reading a book by the BBC’s Environment and Science Correspondent David Shukman. Shukman claims to be unbiased about whether supposed Global Warming (or Climate Change or whatever it is now called) is caused by human activity. But he spews out the worst and most alarmist nonsense without questioning how reliable it is.

Most importantly, he never asks what seems to me to be the key question – in the mid-1970s most of the climate experts were predicting a mini-ice age. We got plenty of alarmist crap about how crops in the northern hemisphere would fail and there would be mass migration of people from north to south. Of course, this never happened. So, given how hopelessly inaccurate the mini-ice age predictions were, why should we believe a word the man-made Global Warming fantasists say?

But Shukman does reveal one interesting fact. The most iconic images “proving” Global Warming are of a polar bear stuck on an ice floe far from land and of office-block-sized pieces of glaciers collapsing into the sea. The problem with filming glaciers collapsing is that glaciers move rather slowly – certainly far too slowly for documentary-makers who want to scare us about the speed at which supposed “Global Warming” will kill us all. So a film-maker might have to wait weeks, months or even years for a big piece of a glacier to fall into the sea. Shukman reveals that what film-makers do to get some dramatic shots of collapsing glaciers is to fly a helicopter near to the edge of a glacier, lower explosive charges into some crevasses, retreat to a safe distance, set up their cameras and then set off the explosives by remote control. The result is of course an office-block-sized piece of glacier collapses into the sea, “proving” Global Warming is happening and is happening now.

Thanks David for revealing yet another piece of man-made Global Warming fakery. You should get an honorary from the Centre of Climate Change Fakery also known as the University of East Anglia.

    The Missus and I have been married 20 years. I was reminded of this recently when watching TV, the Maldive Islands,where we honeymooned all those years ago, was apparently going to disappear into the sea in 15-20 years.

    Oddly, when we went there, 20 years ago, they were saying the islands would disappear into the sea in 15-20 years.
