Nuclear War to Stop Warming?

So, exactly what are these clowns saying? Are they proposing a small nuclear war as a solution that will 'reverse global warming' (which doesn't even exist, or are they saying (for the first time) that nuclear war is a way for man to actually change the climate? Nuclear war is one of the few ways man could actually alter the climate (for a short time); CO2 IS NOT a way man can significantly alter the climate, even for a short time (or definitely not a LONG time as they're saying).

For the record, I'm thoroughly shocked that the majority of National Geographic Channel is owned by Fox Cable Networks!!

Earth is currently in a long-term warming trend. After a regional nuclear war, though, average global temperatures would drop by 2.25 degrees F (1.25 degrees C) for two to three years afterward, the models suggest.

Global Weirding? They Can't Back That Up

At first we were told that anthropogenic global warming was a result of man's CO2 emissions and that we'd see less and less snow and ice. Ice would melt and raise the sea levels, flooding cities. Then, when it was obvious that empirical data showed we were actually cooling more than warming, they said that dynamic weather variability was the result of manmade 'climate change.' Another group said that global warming was merely being 'masked' by the La Nina effect; that was why we were experiencing cooler summers and winters. Dynamic weather referred to anything deemed 'unusual,' such that a blizzard or freezing temperatures would give the same support to the renamed 'climate change' as a would a heat wave or tornado outbreak. I call these sudden grasps at explaining non-correlating empirical data CLIMATE REVISIONISM.

Somewhere in the midst of the mounting empirical evidence to the contrary, climate scandal upon climate scandal erupted. Interested powers tried to put the genie back in the bottle, but it was too late.

As the public continued to reject the idea of manmade global warming or climate change, Thulsa Doom Obama decided to go with the new moniker of 'global climate disruption.' And most recently, the term 'global weirding' came into vogue. No matter what alias they use, it still all comes down to an indictment of capitalism as the driving force behind a climate gone mad. Americans aren't buying it, and neither are Europeans. The rat radar is up and detecting something foul.

Last week a severe storm froze Dallas under a sheet of ice, just in time to disrupt the plans of the tens of thousands of (American) football fans descending on the city for the Super Bowl. On the other side of the globe, Cyclone Yasi slammed northeastern Australia, destroying homes and crops and displacing hundreds of thousands of people.

Some climate alarmists would have us believe that these storms are yet another baleful consequence of man-made CO2 emissions. In addition to the latest weather events, they also point to recent cyclones in Burma, last winter's fatal chills in Nepal and Bangladesh, December's blizzards in Britain, and every other drought, typhoon and unseasonable heat wave around the world.

But is it true? To answer that question, you need to understand whether recent weather trends are extreme by historical standards. The Twentieth Century Reanalysis Project is the latest attempt to find out, using super-computers to generate a dataset of global atmospheric circulation from 1871 to the present.

As it happens, the project's initial findings, published last month, show no evidence of an intensifying weather trend. "In the climate models, the extremes get more extreme as we move into a doubled CO2 world in 100 years," atmospheric scientist Gilbert Compo, one of the researchers on the project, tells me from his office at the University of Colorado, Boulder. "So we were surprised that none of the three major indices of climate variability that we used show a trend of increased circulation going back to 1871."

Patronage Alive-and-Well with EPA Rules

Thulsa Doom Obama--in true Chicago-thug fashion--is sidestepping Congress and using the EPA to institute global warming governance, which will harm the economy even more than it's already harmed. Just as Obama has issued many 'exemptions' for Obamacare to select unions and other supportive entities, he's going to do the same with the EPA rules that will harm other businesses. It's strong-arm politics designed to get the one with the strong arm what he wants. In this case, the Chicago thug is obvious.

Maybe GE CEO Jeff Immelt's closeness to President Obama, and his broad support for Obama's agenda, had nothing to do with this exemption. But we have no way of knowing that, and given the administration's record of regularly misleading Americans regarding lobbyists, frankly, I wouldn't trust the White House if they told me there was no connection.

Obama Caught in Record Winter Storm

Another record-breaking winter (the last several winters have been extremely cold, icy, snowy, miserable, and deadly). These winters have followed cool summers too, though you'll always find a news story proclaiming whatever year it is to be 'the hottest ever.' Yet, the liberal indoctrinators continue the hue and cry about climate "denialists," even after numerous climatology scandals and empirical evidence surface to demonstrate the complete, utter failure and dishonesty of manmade global warming theory and its proponents. The boondoggle has been exposed long ago.

Of course, the global warming alarmists, the faithful, and the zealots will continue to say that the record cold PROVES global warming is real. Just like record heat PROVES global warming. Record ANYTHING to them PROVES global warming. It’s all bullshit. Empirical data proves nothing except that this is one muddy picture, and that’s just the way alarmists like it. The easier it is to snow (no pun intended) the more intellectually challenged among us, the easier for them to consolidate social and political controls to reshape society in the way they deem “Earth friendly.” Capitalism is rejected and socialism is embraced in a clandestine way.

New York City and Philadelphia are just two of the communities across the mid-Atlantic that broke daily snowfall records on Wednesday. For a more elite group that includes New York City, this month is now the snowiest January in history.

With the disruptive storm over, final snow tallies exceed a foot throughout the corridor from Philadelphia to New York City.

WASHINGTON – Heavy snow and icy roads Wednesday night created hazardous condition for President Barack Obama as he returned to the White House from a trip to Wisconsin.
The wintry weather grounded Marine One, the helicopter that typically transports Obama to and from the military base where Air Force One lands. Instead, a motorcade met Obama at the base, and the line of vehicles spent an hour weaving through rush hour traffic already slowed by the storm.

Relevant Global Mean Temperatures

Fantastic blog and post by one of the 'skeptical' scientists that liberals say don't exist. He's talking about the urban island effect and its influence on global mean temperature increases that have the 'consensus' shitting their pants (or, more truthfully, taking us all for a ride). Take a minute and read this...

After having digitized the old data and after a few subtle statistical manipulations, one of their conclusions is that the airport in Nairobi, Kenya gives the dominant warming signal in the most well-known surface temperature datasets. This confirms the familiar warming influence of tarmac and other urban achievements.

The Globe That Warms: -50 in Maine

An older article, but you get the point. Ironic that New England is packed full of liberals who believe in global warming. It's appropriate that they endure this weather. Maybe it will change minds and hearts.

FORT KENT, Maine — An arctic blast from Canada is bringing brutally frigid air and wind chills expected to dip to 50 below zero to northern New England, prompting officials to warn residents to take precautions against the cold.

The National Weather Service in Caribou issued a statewide wind chill warning Sunday night effective through Monday.

Bitterly cold air will remain over northern Maine through Monday night, forcing temperatures down below zero with negative double-digit wind chill values.

Unleash the Lawyers of Climate Change

What always follows junk science and stupid politics? Lawyers and lawsuits, of course. After all, most politicians are blood-sucking lawyers. Need to find something that stinks? Just follow the rats surrounding it.

Thankfully, truth is winning out and this garbage has been exposed for the boondoggle that it is.

PARIS — From being a marginal and even mocked issue, climate-change litigation is fast emerging as a new frontier of law where some believe hundreds of billions of dollars are at stake.

Compensation for losses inflicted by man-made global warming would be jaw-dropping, a payout that would make tobacco and asbestos damages look like pocket money.
Imagine: a country or an individual could get redress for a drought that destroyed farmland, for floods and storms that created an army of refugees, for rising seas that wiped a small island state off the map.

In the past three years, the number of climate-related lawsuits has ballooned, filling the void of political efforts in tackling greenhouse-gas emissions.

GASP!: Global Warming to Cause 'Cataclysmic Super Storm'

Yep...another disaster prediction issued by warming alarmists. Throw it on the pile. Except this one gives no specific date or date range; it's just that we're 'overdue,' especially due to 'rising atmospheric temperatures.' (Which aren't rising, by the way...) It's all a bunch of bunk.

Here's one thing I will guarantee you: We will ALWAYS have unusual weather events, because weather is unpredictable and REAL climate change is unstoppable (and NOT caused by capitalism). This is why North Africa is now a desert (normal, cyclical climate change on the Earth). Almanacs and historical accounts have long recorded unusual, record-breaking weather and climate events. That will continue. Even if we enacted every stupid global warming solution that liberals have dreamed up, the weather and climate will still behave in an oblivious fashion. We're mere gnats on this Great Earth.

Get more fear in the GASP! series and warmlist, you kooks.

It sounds like the plot of an apocalyptic action movie, but scientists with the U.S. Geological Survey warned federal and state emergency officials that California's geological history shows such "superstorms" have happened in the past, and should be added to the long list of natural disasters to worry about in the Golden State.

The threat of a cataclysmic California storm has been dormant for the past 150 years. Geological Survey director Marcia K. McNutt told the New York Times that a 300-mile stretch of the Central Valley was inundated from 1861-62. The floods were so bad that the state capital had to be moved to San Francisco, and Governor Leland Stanford had to take a rowboat to his own inauguration, the report notes. Even larger storms happened in past centuries, over the dates 212, 440, 603, 1029, 1418, and 1605, according to geological evidence.

The risk is gathering momentum now, scientists say, due to rising temperatures in the atmosphere, which has generally made weather patterns more volatile.

Lawmakers Seek to Stop Climate Probe as ‘Significant Error’ Revealed

Interesting to see these two stories on the same day. On one hand (continuing the recent, lengthy series of scandal-ridden ‘scientific’ revelations), activist climatologists are forced (again) to admit their errors that, of course, originally erred on the side of supporting manmade warming. On the other hand, activist politicians are trying to block efforts by other politicians to investigate just such scandals, perpetrated by just such activist scientists.

But we’re supposed to still believe this nonsense amid all of the scandals and empirical evidence to the contrary or risk being labeled as ‘deniers’ or some other equally silly social insult. Amazing how this group is able to set the agenda for what’s politically correct in terms of childish name-calling.

If you still believe in this, the tooth fairy will be coming to visit you soon too.

WASHINGTON (AFP) – A climate change study that projected a 2.4 degree Celsius increase in temperature and massive worldwide food shortages in the next decade was seriously flawed, scientists said Wednesday.

The study was posted on the website of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and was written about by numerous international news agencies, including AFP.
But AAAS later retracted the study as experts cited numerous errors in its approach.

"A reporter with The Guardian alerted us yesterday to concerns about the news release submitted by Hoffman & Hoffman public relations," said AAAS spokeswoman Ginger Pinholster in an email to AFP.

"We immediately contacted a climate change expert, who confirmed that the information raised many questions in his mind, too. We swiftly removed the news release from our Web site and contacted the submitting organization."

RICHMOND, Va. - A power struggle is unfolding in Virginia over climate change research.
Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli has been taking the University of Virginia to court to get information on a climate change researcher who once worked at the school.

Now several members of the State Assembly say they've had enough and have introduced legislation to rein in Cuccinelli's investigation.

Cuccinelli, a global warming skeptic, is looking into whether UVA professor Michael Mann manipulated data to show that there has been a rapid, recent rise in the Earth's temperature.

GASP!: We're Done For in Y3K

Even after all the empirical and actual evidence (not to mention scandals), the elitist kooks out there--propagandizing under a veil they call "science"--refuse to acknowledge that their little demonize-CO2 escapade has failed. No one--except for liberal elitists--is falling for the BS any longer.

This blog has covered numerous dire climate predictions in just three short years, ranging from 18 months (Prince Charles) to now 1000 years. Of course, we've seen that the dingbat known as Prince Charles was proven wrong so early that he had to modify his 18-month prediction a few times; I have no idea upon what authority he feels he can make predictions and be taken seriously...but the media sure takes him seriously.

But there have been many predictions from so-called knowledgeable scientists. So, who's right? Which one of these geniuses do we believe? Are Americans really this stupid? Our history is full of idiot religious leaders prophesying the end times, which never came to pass. In my opinion, there's no difference between these religious zealots and the climate zealots. Climate change is the new religion, and it DEMANDS faith from its followers.

More GASP! series here and check out the warmlist.

Even if humans stop producing excess carbon dioxide in 2100, the lingering effects of global warming could span the next millennia. The results? By the year 3000, global warming would be more than a hot topic - the West Antarctic ice sheet could collapse, and global sea levels would rise by about 13 feet (4 meters), according to a new study.

Using a computer model, researchers looked at two scenarios - an end to humans' industrial carbon dioxide emissions by 2010 and by 2100 - stretched out to the year 3000.

Even if humans were to stop emitting excess carbon dioxide - or if they figured out a way to completely capture it - the effects of global warming would continue to accumulate. That's because previously emitted carbon dioxide lingers in the atmosphere and the oceans, unlike land, warm only gradually, according to one of the study researchers, Shawn Marshall, an associate professor of geography at the University of Calgary.

Flashback: Gore Said Snow and Ice Disappearing a Year Ago

Now what does Al Gore say (after the record winters of the last few years)? Oh, he says that is caused by warming too. See the stupidity yet? No matter what happens, they'll say it's caused by manmade global warming. That way they can cram there government regulations and taxes down our throats to 'save us.'

COPENHAGEN, Denmark, December 14, 2009 (ENS) - Snow and ice across the planet are melting much faster than anticipated, and the cryosphere - the Earth's ice and snow cover - is very vulnerable to climate change, finds a new report presented today at the United Nations Climate Summit by former U.S. Vice President Al Gore and Norwegian Foreign Minister Jonas Gahr Støre.

Snow cover is diminishing, and glaciers from the Himalayas to the Alps are melting rapidly, with the greatest reductions in the Andes and the Rockies, the report shows.

Climatologists Urge Chinese-Style Dictatorship

I have been so ridiculed here on my own blog for ever considering the 'conspiratorial' notion that liberal types (including MOST most professors in any university will identify as liberals) want to harm capitalism and replace it with some form of socialism, using global warming as the means to finally get that done (because 'they're trying to save the planet,' remember?).

Well here you go, morons. We've seen how NASA's global warming activist, James Hansen, has openly called for socialism. This clown is not a scientist, because real scientists stick to science and leave the politics to politicians. Here's more of the same. Liberals--for whatever fucking reason--love tyrants like Lenin, Stalin, Mao, Castro, Chavez, and Che Guevara. They think--stupidly--that if America was like these failed communist states (or had leaders like these idiots and murderers) then all the world would be right and the Earth would 'cool.'

Don't believe me? Many prominent liberals have called for a slower economy to fight global warming. Well, now we have a slower economy and it's very cold. I guess it worked, LOL!

The nation's most prominent publicly funded climatologist is officially angry about this, blaming democracy and citing the Chinese government as the "best hope" to save the world from global warming. He also wants an economic boycott of the U.S. sufficient to bend us to China's will.

NASA laboratory head James Hansen's anti-democracy rants were published while he was on a November junket in China, but they didn't get much attention until recently. On Jan. 12, the hyperprolific blogger Marc Morano put them on his Climate Depot site, and within hours, the post went viral. In a former life, Mr. Morano was chief global-warming researcher for Sen. James M. Inhofe, Oklahoma Republican.

According to Mr. Hansen, compared to China, we are "the barbarians" with a "fossil-money- 'democracy' that now rules the roost," making it impossible to legislate effectively on climate change. Unlike us, the Chinese are enlightened, unfettered by pesky elections. Here's what he blogged on Nov. 24:

Animal Death Watch: Record Cold Endangers Sea Life?

Well, this is an interesting turn of events. The Animal Death Watch series has almost exclusively focused on living things dying or going extinct because of 'warming,' but here's a proven, real-world example of animals dying from exposure. More extinction stupidity at Dr. Brignell's warmlist page.

Thousands of dead starfish that littered a beach near Charleston last weekend are the first signs of what might become a disastrous winter for coastal sea life. They died because water was chilled to a lethal temperature by frigid weather earlier this month.

With coastal waters already hovering near critical lows, biologists worry there might be a mass die-off of shrimp, sea trout and red drum as the season turns cold again.

William Gay, owner of Port Royal Seafood, said he has heard Beaufort crab trappers talk about dead shrimp showing up in their crab pots, but said the cold water hasn't yet affected his business.

Senator Belittling Cow Fart Research Lambasted

Thank the Almighty we have legislators willing to stand up to stupidity when they see it. Cow fart research is just plain stupid and is nothing more than politics. But what about the scientist who said there was no link?

Among those projects was a $700,000 grant from the Department of Agriculture to a team of environmental scientists at the University of New Hampshire to study greenhouse gas emissions – the chemicals associated with global warming – in the dairy industry.

Coburn's "Wastebook" quotes one of the project's researchers telling a local New Hampshire paper that "cows emit most of their methane through belching, only a small fraction from flatulence."

Schwarzenegger, the Clima-nator

Schwarzen-a-hole really let the lefties out in California work him over. He started off as a fiscal conservative with half a brain but ended up more left-leaning than John McCain or Lindsey Graham (and those schmucks are pretty left-leaning). I ask you to just remember this clown's hypocrisy, as he drives around in his gas-guzzling Hummers. All of these liberal politicians are hypocrites when it comes to their own personal behavior's 'effect on warming.'

Schwarzenegger, who counts legislation combating global warming as one of his signature achievements in office, suggested he might be interested in a post dealing with energy or the environment.

"I'm a big believer in environmental issues," Schwarzenegger said, who added that he wanted a post where he could use his "celebrity power … knowledge and experience" to impact public policy. "I've traveled the world. … I'm very familiar with the world."

It's not a far-fetched idea. Obama has often mentioned Schwarzenegger as someone he's like to have in the Cabinet, citing his work on climate change. For months, there have been rumors in Washington that the former action star might join the administration as a climate change czar or as an adviser on energy and the environment. The White House has repeatedly declined to comment on personnel issues.

Oft-right Soothsayer: Ice Age Coming

Of course, this prediction could be as flawed as all the recent warming predictions and the 1970s ice age predictions. But this person isn't the first to utter an antithetical prediction of late, and it certainly is cold outside.

He seems to get it right about 85 per cent of the time and serious business people - notably in farming - are starting to invest in his forecasts. In the eyes of many punters, he puts the taxpayer-funded Met Office to shame. How on earth does he do it? He studies the Sun.

He looks at the flow of particles from the Sun, and how they interact with the upper atmosphere, especially air currents such as the jet stream, and he looks at how the Moon and other factors influence those streaming particles.

He takes a snapshot of what the Sun is doing at any given moment, and then he looks back at the record to see when it last did something similar. Then he checks what the weather was like on Earth at the time - and he makes a prophecy.

Dec 2010, Cancun: Temps Drop to 100-yr Low!

An older story, but a goodie. How many times have we seen ironic stories like this that plague the alarmist faithful?

The irony: As negotiators from nearly 200 countries met in Cancun to strategize ways to keep the planet from getting hotter, the temperature in the seaside Mexican city plunged to a 100-year record low of 54° F. Climate-change skeptics are gleefully calling Cancun's weather the latest example of the "Gore Effect" — a plunge in temperature they say occurs wherever former Vice President Al Gore, now a Nobel Prize-winning environmental activist, makes a speech about the climate. Although Gore is not scheduled to speak in Cancun, "it could be that the Gore Effect has announced his secret arrival," jokes former NASA scientist Roy W. Spencer.

WikiLeaks: US Manipulated Copenhagen

Surprised? I think not. Global warming (or whatever you want to call it now to fit reality) morphed into worldwide politics and trapped the grant-seeking climatologists along with it. See how the liberals in our government used underhanded diplomacy to force other nations into our line of thinking? Chicago politics gone global.

Hidden behind the save-the-world rhetoric of the global climate change negotiations lies the mucky realpolitik: money and threats buy political support; spying and cyberwarfare are used to seek out leverage.

The US diplomatic cables reveal how the US seeks dirt on nations opposed to its approach to tackling global warming; how financial and other aid is used by countries to gain political backing; how distrust, broken promises and creative accounting dog negotiations; and how the US mounted a secret global diplomatic offensive to overwhelm opposition to the controversial "Copenhagen accord", the unofficial document that emerged from the ruins of the Copenhagen climate change summit in 2009.

Climate Revisionism and the Church of Warming

When was the last time you ever thought you'd see liberal-leaning types defend a flawed theory much the way that conservative religious zealots defend their sometimes fanatical religious practices?

Global warming (including all of its many aliases--climate change, AGW, global climate disruption, etc.) has turned into a religion of the left. It has many of the hallmarks of a cult-like religion: the now discredited 'Bible of Warming'...the IPCC reports; the scandal-ridden professional prognosticators of the CRU, IPCC, and NASA (think Jimmy Swaggart, Jim Bakker, and many others ); the Climate Inquisition known as the "Consensus," which would love to destroy any professional scientist who dares to speak a contrary word; the coming 'Climate Armageddon,' featuring the end-times as a result of the world's love of capitalism; the 'Climate Anti-Christ,' which would be anyone of prominence coming out against global warming; the 'Climate Messiah,' which is none other than Al Gore (no disrespect intended to the real Christ of two millennia ago); a 'Climate Holy Spirit' in the form of the Green Fad that is currently ongoing (including forms of 'Climate Redemption' such as dumb global warming solutions); religious articles of faith and holy relics, such as ice cores, tree rings, and urban-island temperature measurements; predictions of things to come (simply moved forward in time when they don't come to pass...just like real religious zealots); the demand for unquestioning faith of its followers; and the false prophets and me, for example. These are all elements of religion that global warming--as a political movement--now possesses.

Given that much of the 'evidence' and most 'predictions' have been exposed as bogus or just plain WRONG, you'd think it would shake the faith of climate alarmists. What occurs is that the believers REVISE predictions and expectations based on the exposed flaws of past predictions (think 'loss of snow and ice' and 'increased hurricanes'...which have been failed predictions). This is exactly what's done in religion today; this is what's done by those who love Nostradamus--make reality fit the template (i.e., make the square peg fit the round hole). Everything is REVISED to fit the template. I call it 'Climate Revisionism.' It's the reason that believers want to cast away the term 'global warming' for 'climate change' or 'global climate disruption.' That way, they can't be wrong. Any weather or climate phenomenon deemed 'unusual' can be used to fit the template, whether associated with winter (cold), summer (heat and cyclones), or somewhere in-between (thunderstorms and tornadoes).

This is a big problem for those who see human-caused global warming as an irreversible result of the Industrial Revolution's reliance on carbon-based fuels. Based on global warming theory — and according to official weather forecasts made earlier in the year — this winter should be warm and dry. It's anything but. Ice and snow cover vast parts of both Europe and North America, in one of the coldest Decembers in history.

A cautionary tale? You bet. Prognosticators who wrote the U.N.'s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, or IPCC, global warming report in 2007 predicted an inevitable, century-long rise in global temperatures of two degrees or more. Only higher temperatures were foreseen. Moderate or even lower temperatures, as we're experiencing now, weren't even listed as a possibility.

Since at least 1998, however, no significant warming trend has been noticeable. Unfortunately, none of the 24 models used by the IPCC views that as possible. They are at odds with reality.

Empirically Frigid February

Yeah, I know, I warming is causing all this record-setting, deadly cold. (My ass...)

If colder-than-normal temperatures continue into February, this winter could possibly set records for the coldest winter ever in some parts of Georgia. Record low temperatures were set at Macon, Savannah and Alma Jan. 14. Macon reported 16 degrees, breaking the old record of 19 degrees set that date in 1970. Savannah and Alma reported 18 degrees, surpassing the old records of 20 degrees set at both locations in 1964.

[From Georgia eyes coldest winter ever | Freeze Damage content from Southeast Farm Press]

The average temperature in January 2011 was 30.0 F. This was -0.8 F cooler than the 1901-2000 (20th century) average, the 37th coolest January in 117 years. The temperature trend for the period of record (1895 to present) is 0.1 degrees Fahrenheit per decade.


The fresh snow was especially troublesome in Tulsa, Okla., where many roads were still impassable from last week's record 14-inch snowfall. The previous storm kept students out of school for at least six days. Mail, bus and trash service were only recently restored.

Five more inches of snow fell Wednesday in Tulsa, according to the National Weather Service. That raised the city's total for the winter to 25.9 inches, breaking the previous seasonal record of 25.6 inches, set during the winter of 1923-24.

PLANO (CBSDFW.COM) – The demand for electricity could reach record high levels on Thursday morning, as temperatures reach a record low. Many people across North Texas will be struggling to stay warm. This means that rolling power outages could potentially return.

As cold temperatures rolled into the Metroplex last week, and the entire area was covered under a blanket of snow and ice, people became enraged when their power went out. The high demand for electricity late last week forced the Electric Reliability Council of Texas to coordinate rolling outages. This process, called load-shedding, is designed to take strain off of the state’s electric grid.

AGW Scientist: Prove Global Warming DOESN'T Exist!

In another climate science attempt to turn acceptable statistical practices in science upside-down, they now want to use a reverse null hypothesis on us 'skeptics.' What would Carl Sagan say?

Trenberth is the Climategate scientist who wrote the email stating: "The fact is that we can’t account for the lack of warming at the moment and it is a travesty that we can’t." That statement--strictly violating the stipulations in Carl Sagan's Baloney Detection Kit--brings a whole host of other questions that I won't get into at this time very deeply. Questions like: "Didn't you guys say that the cooling is being caused by the warming?" (or) "I thought you guys said the El Nino and La Nina effects are masking global warming?" In fact, Trenberth is bluntly stating the truth to his colleagues; Mother Nature is NOT following their template, and they have no real explanation why. They've so fallen in love with their pet theory that they're attempting to dodge-and-parry any legitimate criticism to protect this politically-correct, pseudo-religious climate zealotry.

Now, he wants to reverse long-honored scientific principles, such that "deniers" and "skeptics" must PROVE that global warming DOES NOT exist, instead of he and his colleagues having to prove that it DOES EXIST. Bizarre huh? Scientists who are so enamored with their pet theories that they're willing to toss scientific convention aside in the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary.

Proves what I've said all along. Global warming is BS and it's being propped up by liberal dopes who KNOW it's BS for the sake of advancing socialism and harming capitalism.

What Eschenbach focuses on, though, is Trenberth’s absurd demand that the “null hypothesis” on AGW theory be reversed. That is, instead of having to prove AGW exists, what people should now be required to prove that it doesn’t exist. (!)


Eschenbach goes on to offer a long list of things climate ’scientists’ should do if they’re ever to be taken seriously again:

Stop avoiding public discussion and debate of your work.
Stop secretly moving the pea under the walnut shells.
Enough with the scary scenarios, already.
Speak out against scientific malfeasance whenever and wherever you see it.
Stop re-asserting the innocence of you and your friends.

Oh, I see, professor. The climate is becoming more 'dynamic' because of manmade greenhouse gases. But what about when your climatology brothers said that future snows would be a 'rare and exciting event'? You guys want it both ways; and we're all just NOT that dumb.

But before we write off our current cold snap as the British weather playing its usual tricks, we still need to explain why the Arctic high pressure has strayed so far south. And here, says Prof Maslin, is the more likely, and more subtle, link with climate change. "For me," he says, "this shows that the climate is becoming more dynamic, and thus large shifts in the wind patterns are possible – in this case, sub-tropical air being trapped further south than usual."

In other words, we need to remember that while the average temperature is rising, climate change also delivers more extreme weather, from chills to heatwaves. Today, we're stocking up on snowshoes – but best to invest in some air-conditioning as well.

Warming's Rotten Corpse

Older article...but it's the climate party for which NO ONE showed. The scam is dead. Rest in pieces, scam.

Scams die hard, but eventually they die, and when they do, nobody wants to get close to the corpse. You can get all the hotel rooms you want this week in Cancun.

The global-warming caravan has moved on, bound for a destination in oblivion. The United Nations is hanging the usual lamb chop in the window this week in Mexico for the U.N.'s Framework Convention on Climate Change, but the Washington guests are staying home. Nobody wants to get the smell of the corpse on their clothes.

Everybody who imagined himself anybody raced to Copenhagen last year for the global-warming summit, renamed "climate change" when the globe began to cool, as it does from time to time.

Scientists: Some Sea Levels 'Could Fall'

Interesting read from someone who still espouses global warming as reality. Even they admit the doomsday predictions are WRONG.

The incorrect belief that ocean water is evenly distributed lives on in the debate over climate change, says Stammer. The rising sea level is widely viewed as the most threatening consequence of global warming. Images of Bangladeshis wading through floodwaters are a favorite horror scenario used by some environmentalists. "But people act as if the water from melting glaciers were distributed as uniformly in the oceans as the water in our bathtubs at home," says Stammer.

But the reality is counter-intuitive. According to the most recent estimates, the sea level is expected to rise by about 1 meter (3.28 feet) -- on average -- in the next 100 years. This is the number that will be mentioned again and again during negotiations at the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Cancun, Mexico over the next two weeks. "But this average value doesn't really help coastal planners," says Stammer.

Global Warming (Climate Change) Now 'Global Weirding'

As I predicted long ago, the new tactic--now that climate predictions continue to FAIL--will be to call anything that happens 'global warming.' In other words, the warming climate is causing all unusual weather events. But I have news for you psychos out there; we have hundreds of years of written accounts of 'unusual' weather and climate events, dating back to the global floods of ancient times (not to mention the Medieval Warm Period...a time that alarmists don't want you to bring up).

This bullshit is such a complete and utter farce. It's a failed government power grab. Interesting that Europeans seem to be awakening from their stupor far faster than we are.

So then the mantra became “climate change.” The liberals formerly known as “warmists” began predicting that we would experience fundamental changes in our weather. Scientists at the University of East Anglia — the Harvard of climate change — said snow would be “a very rare and exciting event.” Children wouldn’t know what it was.

As for summers, in the wake of Katrina “change-ist” groups like predicted “global warming will make hurricanes even worse in the future.”

What happened? Nothing. Europe has had three winters in a row of snow and cold temperatures. In the Atlantic, “there has been a dramatic decrease in the number of hurricanes in the last five years,” according to meteorologist Art Horn. “The total energy in all hurricanes around the world has plunged since 1993. The opposite of what was predicted.”

So the new fall back is “global weirding.” The site has a “Weird Weather Watch” page. The uber-liberal Huffington Post ran a story in August headlined “Global Weirding”: Extreme Climate Events Dominate The Summer.”
