There is more Arctic sea ice today than there was on this date in 1989.
Extent is highest in the last eight years, higher than 2004, 2006, 2007 and 1989.
In 1989, NOAA’s head of climate analysis said most global warming occurred before 1919, and the climate cooled from 1921 to 1979.
“Analysis of warming since 1881 shows most of the increase in global temperature happened before 1919 — before the more re-cent sharp rise in the amount of carbon dioxide ut the atmosphere. said Thomas Karl, of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s National Climatic Data Center in Asheville, N.C. While global climate warmed overall since 1881, It actually cooled from 1921 to 1979, Karl said.

NOAA has since altered their global temperature data to reverse both trends
In 1989, NOAA said there had been no warming in the US since 1895.
“After examining climate data extending back nearly 100 years, a team of Government scientists has concluded that there has been no significant change in average temperatures or rainfall in the United States over that entire period.
While the nation’s weather in individual years or even for periods of years has been hotter or cooler and drier or wetter than in other periods, the new study shows that over the last century there has been no trend in one direction or another.
The study, made by scientists for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration was published in the current issue of Geophysical Research Letters. It is based on temperature and precipitation readings taken at weather stations around the country from 1895 to 1987.”
NOAA has since altered their US temperature data to show warming from 1895 to 1987.
NOAA accomplished this by cooling 1895 temperatures by about 1.2 degrees.
In 1989, the UN said we only had until the year 2000 to stop global warming and if we didn’t the Maldives would drown.
“June 29, 1989
UNITED NATIONS (AP) _ A senior U.N. environmental official says entire nations could be wiped off the face of the Earth by rising sea levels if the global warming trend is not reversed by the year 2000.
Coastal flooding and crop failures would create an exodus of ″eco- refugees,′ ′ threatening political chaos, said Noel Brown, director of the New York office of the U.N. Environment Program, or UNEP.
He said governments have a 10-year window of opportunity to solve the greenhouse effect before it goes beyond human control.
As the warming melts polar icecaps, ocean levels will rise by up to three feet, enough to cover the Maldives and other flat island nations, Brown told The Associated Press in an interview on Wednesday.”
The Maldives are still there.
In 1989, the British Commonwealth said that only global governance could stop this from happening.
“GOVERNMENTS must yield national sovereignty to multilateral authorities able to enforce laws “across environmentally invisible frontiers” if the green-house effect, which threatens the future of whole nations, is to be overcome, the Commonwealth Secretary-General, Sir Shridath Ramphal, said on Tuesday.”
