Ole Humlum is a professor emeritus for the Department of Geosciences at the University of Oslso and also an adjunct professor of physical geography at the University Center in Svalbard.
He specializes in climatology, and in glacial and periglacial geomorphology and is also a member of Norwegian Scientific Academy for Polar Research.
In other words, he is a respected member of the climate community.
However, Humlum has not been caught up in the current man-made global warming fad and believes that climate change is largely due to poorly-understood naturally occurring phenomena.
He recently released his annual State of the Climate 2021 report, where he said the evidence shows that there is no sign of a climate crisis and blamed the crisis on computer models, not actual changes in the climate.
In its news release announcing the report, the Global Warming Policy Foundation said:
And while the report finds gentle warming, there is no evidence of dramatic changes, with snow cover stable, sea ice levels recovering, and no change in storm activity.
Professor Humlum said:
“A year ago, I warned that there was great risk in using computer modelling and immature science to make extraordinary claims. The empirical observations I have reviewed show very gentle warming and no evidence of a climate crisis.”
GWPF director, Dr Benny Peiser said:
“It’s extraordinary that anyone should think there is a climate crisis. Year after year our annual assessment of climate trends document just how little has been changing in the last 30 years. The habitual climate alarmism is mainly driven by scientists’ computer modelling rather than observational evidence.”

Gotta trust those computer models
Back in 2000, Dr. David Viner, one of the scientists who worked with Britain’s East Anglia’s Climate Research Unit that provided the research for the UN’s global warming propaganda, promised us that snow was going to disappear.
In an interview with the British newspaper, The Independent, Viner said:
“Children just aren’t going to know what snow is.” He then went on to say that “snow will become ‘a very rare and exciting event.’”
Of course, these predictions were based on obviously flawed computer modeling.

It snowed on April 14, 2022:
I am getting annoyed by all these fake promises of no snow. It’s April 14, 2022, and below is a photo of our backyard after last night’s snowstorm, that’s continuing today.
And, don’t forget those ice age warnings
I remember back in the 70s how environmental fanatics were warning about the next ice age if we didn’t cut back on fossil fuels.
Apparently, in addition to man-made global warming, fossil fuels also cause man-made ice ages.
Below is a quote from an article published in the Washington Post in 1971, where Dr. Raool warned about a catastrophic ice age in 50 years, if we didn’t cut back on fossil fuels.
The article was written in 1971, so the ice age apparently started in 2021:
“Dr. S. I. Raool of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration at Columbia University says:
‘In the next 50 years,’ the fine dust man constantly puts into the atmosphere by fossil fuel burning could screen out so much sunlight that the average temperature could drop by six degrees.
If sustained over ‘several years’ — ‘five to 10’, he estimated ‘such a temperature decrease could be sufficient to trigger an ice age.
