The following article title and URL is for an article from the Sydney Morning Herald of 28.11.12, which can most charitably be described as scientifically illiterate and a piece of climate alarmist journalism.

It contains inaccurate information about global temperature since there has not been a single statistically significant increase in global temperature in the last sixteen years according to Professor Judith Curry. See:

The Herald article misrepresents the nature of permafrost, here’s what Marc Marano, from Climate Depot has to say about the allegations:
“Here is a meteorologists initial reaction to study:
Despite its name, permafrost is characterized by its instability. It is often covered by an active layer that regularly melts. Although permafrost can be thousands of years old, it is sometimes newly formed or about to thaw, and it often exists close to its melting point (Williams and Smith 1989). As permafrost thaws, it jeopardizes both man-made structures and natural features. Thawing permafrost on mountain slopes can lead to landslides (Nelson et al. 2001). Approximately 55 percent of the Northern Hemisphere’s land surface is covered by seasonally frozen ground, which can last for a few weeks in the middle and lower latitudes, and for several months at high latitudes and high elevations (Zhang et al. 2003a).”
Even with all those greenhouse gases being dumped out of the permafrost, global temperatures have declined over the past decade. Apparently the entire basis of their scam is garbage.
Further, the following links show that the threat of permafrost melting is nothing new and date back to 1954 – before the alleged period of anthropogenic global warming.

You should read about how the Club of Rome stated that it needed to manufacture a phoney ecological crisis right back in 1990. See the following extract from the article on the Club of Rome. The move to convince humanity that they were the enemy of the planet and that their numbers needed to be reduced was outlined then.
“On page 75 of their 1990 publication entitled The First Global Revolution, the organization outlined how they would manufacture ecological scares in order to manipulate the public into accepting the imposition of a dictatorial world government run by them.
“In searching for a common enemy against whom we can unite, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill…. All these dangers are caused by human intervention… The real enemy, then, is humanity itself,” states the report, which can be read in full at the end of this article.
The passage appears under a sub-headline entitled, “The common enemy of humanity is Man.”
Of course, to unite the public against a common enemy, by using divide and conquer to turn humanity against itself, villains need to be created in the public eye who can be blamed for slowing efforts to save the planet from the mythical threat of global warming, even as Arctic ice levels return to normal and much of the globe has just experienced its coldest winter in decades.”

For the record, I have a Bachelor of Science Degree in Pure Mathematics and I used to believe in global warming, until I spent some ninety hours studying the so-called ‘science of climate change’ and it doesn’t stack up for a number of reasons but one should note that it is actually global temperature increases that drive CO2 levels and not vice versa: This information comes from half a million years of ice core samples.
“The new ice cores show that in the past six global warmings over the past half a million years, the temperature rises occurred on average 800 years before the accompanying rise in atmospheric carbon. Which says something important about which was cause and which was effect,” Dr. David Evans writes. There is no way CO2 increases can cause global warming when they lag behind it by 800 years on average!

Also, the Climate Alarmists use computer models to predict climatic patterns based on weather models, there’s only one problem here, that being, that’s it’s impossible to predict the weather more than a fortnight ahead with any degree of accuracy.
“It has recently been calculated that to produce an accurate forecast of the climate even as little as ten years ahead would require all of the world’s computers to run not for ten years but for 100 billion billion billion years. The age of the universe is only 13.7 billion years. So anyone who claims that any computer model can produce reliable results 100 years ahead is making a claim that goes not only well beyond the laws of mathematics, as explained by Lorenz, but also well beyond the capacity of today’s computers.”

I guess that I would derive some comfort if I thought that I could , to use the parlance of administrative law, “disabuse” those who believe in Anthropogenic Global Warming, but sadly so-called “Climate-Change” is a religion and as such its arguments do not rest on objective data. There is very little chance of convincing Warmists as that would involve asking them to confound their opinions with facts.
