Global warming alarmists debunked yet again by reality

Even as climate alarmists amplify their call for a worldwide tax on carbon dioxide emissions in the name of preventing global warming - penguins, polar bears, Himalayan glaciers and Arctic sea ice are all thriving.
Penguins, Polar Bears, Glaciers, Arctic Ice All Thriving 1 top 10 najubavi ptici vo svetot

With dire proclamations of ice free Arctic summers vehemently debunked, the latest data indicates that both wildlife and the environment in earth's coldest regions has not experienced the catastrophic devastation predicted as a result of man-made climate change.

Forecasts that Canada's polar bear population would significantly decline due to global warming have been proven completely inaccurate. The latest study shows that the Hudson Bay area polar bear population has remained steady at around 1000 - the same number found by a 2004 study, confounding the "doom-and-gloom" predictions of environmentalists about the demise of the polar bear (which) have failed to come true," reports the Canadian Press.

Forget global warming - it’s Cycle 25 we need to worry about (and if NASA scientists are right the Thames will be freezing over again) By David Rose

Last updated at 5:38 AM on 29th January 2012

The supposed ‘consensus’ on man-made global warming is facing an inconvenient challenge after the release of new temperature data showing the planet has not warmed for the past 15 years.

The figures suggest that we could even be heading for a mini ice age to rival the 70-year temperature drop that saw frost fairs held on the Thames in the 17th Century.

Based on readings from more than 30,000 measuring stations, the data was issued last week without fanfare by the Met Office and the University of East Anglia Climatic Research Unit. It confirms that the rising trend in world temperatures ended in 1997.

A painting, dated 1684, by Abraham Hondius depicts one of many frost fairs on the River Thames during the mini ice age

Meanwhile, leading climate scientists yesterday told The Mail on Sunday that, after emitting unusually high levels of energy throughout the 20th Century, the sun is now heading towards a ‘grand minimum’ in its output, threatening cold summers, bitter winters and a shortening of the season available for growing food.

Solar output goes through 11-year cycles, with high numbers of sunspots seen at their peak.

We are now at what should be the peak of what scientists call ‘Cycle 24’ - which is why last week’s solar storm resulted in sightings of the aurora borealis further south than usual. But sunspot numbers are running at less than half those seen during cycle peaks in the 20th Century.

Analysis by experts at NASA and the University of Arizona - derived from magnetic-field measurements 120,000 miles beneath the sun’s surface - suggest that Cycle 25, whose peak is due in 2022, will be a great deal weaker still.

According to a paper issued last week by the Met Office, there is a 92 per cent chance that both Cycle 25 and those taking place in the following decades will be as weak as, or weaker than, the ‘Dalton minimum’ of 1790 to 1830. In this period, named after the meteorologist John Dalton, average temperatures in parts of Europe fell by 2C.

However, it is also possible that the new solar energy slump could be as deep as the ‘Maunder minimum’ (after astronomer Edward Maunder), between 1645 and 1715 in the coldest part of the ‘Little Ice Age’ when, as well as the Thames frost fairs, the canals of Holland froze solid.

Want to know why global warming alarmists and climate scientists in general have lost credibility with the American public? Consider a new study released today -- and the unintentionally hilarious weasel words of its author -- as Exhibit A.

As reported in the San Francisco Chronicle today, a meteorologist did a 30-year survey of temperature and precipitation data for most of the largest cities up and down the state of California. Conclusion? In 75% of the sites, the weather has grown colder and rainier than it used to be:

Remember how scientists thought of spraying sulfur dioxide into the atmosphere to stop global Warming? It's called "Geoengineering" and the idea is still out there.

A new study has come out that says that the coal powered electric plants in China, with their loose environmental laws, have pumped millions of tons of sulfur dioxide into the atmosphere and may have accidentally geoengineered the planet. The sulfur particles in the atmosphere have acted like a giant umbrella which has caused the planet to cool off over the last decade.

"People normally just focus on the warming effect of CO2 (carbon dioxide), but during the Chinese economic expansion there was a huge increase in sulfur emissions," which have a cooling effect, explained Robert K. Kaufmann of Boston University, the lead author of the study published Monday in Proceedings of the National Academy of Science.

So what this study has discovered is that the coal plants in China have no impact on the climate because they are self regulating. Any increase in the "Greenhouse Effect" from the CO2 emissions is offset by the "Umbrella Effect" of the sulfur.

In America coal powered plants scrub out the sulfur and pay huge fines for any sulfur emissions. What the geoengineers hope to do is then take the scrubbed out sulfur from the power plants, put it on planes and spray into the atmosphere to offset the global warming that the coal plants are causing...

...I think China has a more efficient system.

Of course all the volcanoes last month in Peru, Africa, Iceland and New Zealand emitted more sulfur into the atmosphere than all the electrical plants in all the world have emitted so far. But that's just nature doing its thing so that doesn't count.

Looking for something to do on the 4th of July? How about going downhill skiing?

Because of last winters record snowfall many ski areas still have tons of snow and are still getting more. So some ski areas are going to be open for the fourth of July.

The melting record snow from the Rockies is causing all kinds of havoc with flooding. Al Gore is trying to blame it on Global Warming but I say you can blame it on a a very cold and long winter.

Here is a partial list of skis areas that will be open this Fourth of July.

Squaw Valley, CA
Mammoth, CA
Alpine Meadows, CA
Kirkwood, CA
Sugar Bowl, CA (only open on 4th of July and only to 10/11 & 11/12 pass holders)
Arapahoe Basin, CO
Snowbird, UT
Timberline Lodge, OR

So grab your sparkles and head for the hills, who knows there might even be fireworks.

The calendar says summer starts tomorrow in the Northern Hemisphere. The snow falling in the mountains of Colorado tells a different story.

A storm that has prompted a tornado watch across Nebraska and Kansas today also left 2 to 4 inches of snow in the Rocky Mountains, said Joe Ramey, a weather service meteorologist in Grand Junction, Colorado.

"It is unusual," Ramey said. "Here it is the last day of spring."

A winter storm advisory has been posted in the mountains of Colorado above 10,000 feet until 6 p.m. local time, and at least one tornado was reported in Kansas, according to the weather service. The Northern Hemisphere summer starts at 1:16 p.m. New York time tomorrow.

The recent tornadoes in Alabama are being blamed on global warming and now any extreme weather event is being referred to as a "Climate Event" but it is my contention that there is no such thing.

Tornadoes are a bigger wild card for climate scientists than other types of extreme weather and climate events, such as heat waves and flooding. (Studies have consistently found that both of these hazards will occur more frequently and severely as the world warms.)
The problem is this event occurred during an unusually cold stretch. It's May 1st and its only 32º here in Minnesota.


Here is a blog talking about the TOP 10 Climate Events of 2010. Notice how they are now using cold weather to prove "Global Warming".

But aren't "Weather" and "Climate" supposed to be two different things?

Here is NASA's explanation.

The difference between weather and climate is a measure of time. Weather is what conditions of the atmosphere are over a short period of time, and climate is how the atmosphere "behaves" over relatively long periods of time.

The term "Event" can only be attributed to "Weather" because it occurs over a short period of time. A tornado lasts for just a few minutes, so a Tornado can't be a "Climate Event" it is a "Weather Event".

GulliblesTravels.jpgHACKENSACK, MN-- Despite the growing scientific evidence that global warming is not real, Americans have become increasingly polarized on this fraudulent issue, according to a first-of-its-kind study led by a Michigan State University researcher.

The gap between the skeptics and the gullible people who actually believe in the global warming hoax has increased 30 percent between 2001 and 2010 - a "hopeful" trend that's keeping draconian national energy policies from being considered, argues Elmer Beauregard.

"Instead of a public debate about different policies to deal with global warming, a significant percentage of the American public is still debating the science," said McCright, MSU associate professor and primary investigator on the study.

"This is a good thing, because we should figure out if Global Warming is even happening before we start writing policy." said Elmer Beauregard. "Its April 20th and we just got dumped on again, when are people going to stop believing these bozos?"

The study is featured in the spring issue of the research journal Sociological Quarterly, online now.

Snow kicks off Earth Week

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

By Henry Payne, National Review

God has a sense of humor.

Earth Week kicked off in the Midwest with temperatures plunging 20 degrees below normal, record snowfalls in Chicago and two to four inches here in Metro Detroit.

While their reporters shivered through "winter is back" reports, MSM outlets from NBC ("Green Week") to the Detroit Free Press ("Green Leaders Awards") launched a week of green propaganda leading up to Earth Day on Friday with scare stores about melting snow, drought, and tips for how to live a moral green life and prevent Armageddon.

Local Detroit communities scrambled to send out salt trucks while warning that carbon-spewing trucks are destroying the planet, and local schools prepared to scare the kiddies with the movie Carbon Nation -- assuming schools didn't have a snow day.

Temperatures are expected to remain below normal this week -- as is enthusiasm for the Left's plans to remake the economy to prevent catastrophic warming.

It's April 16, 2011 and up here in Minnesota we woke up to a fresh coating of snow this morning. I was hoping to maybe do some grilling this weekend but that seems ridiculous now. The lakes up north are still frozen and it looks like they won't be opening up anytime soon. Opening fishing this year might have to be an ice fishing contest.

MinnetonkaIceOut.jpg

The ice just went out on Lake Minnetonka (a big lake near the Twin Cities) on April 14th. The average ice out day is April 15th. Here is a chart of the ice out days on Lake Minnetonka going back to 1855.

Earliest Ice-Out: March 11, 1878
Latest Ice-Out: May 8, 1856
Earliest to Latest: 59 days
Most Common Ice-Out: April 17 & 18 - 9 times.
Average Ice-Out: April 15 (Ice-Out has never occurred on this date.)

I'll let the viewers conclude if they see any global warming on this chart. Keep in mind that Lake Minnetonka is in the Twin Cities Metro area so it should be affected by the Urban Heat Island effect.

-Keeping a calendar can help you keep track of when daylight savings time is. Not only that, but you can organize numerous other important dates threw out the year. You can even make your own global warming chart and come to your own conclusions.

MinnesotaStillLife.jpgWe just finished a nice thawing period here in Minnesota that came in the middle of February. We usually get this in the middle of January, we call it a "January thaw" and it happens pretty regularly, in fact 2011 will be the first year we haven't had a January thaw in over 30 years.

It was a very cold January, in fact it never reached 32º the whole month. So we finally got are thaw it was just a month late. Now it looks like winter is coming back with a vengeance, we are supposed to get another foot of show this weekend.

(CNN) -- An icy cold front that swept through northern Mexico over the weekend left 65 zoo animals dead, the zoo's owner told CNN on Monday.

Parrots, crocodiles and peacocks were among the victims of temperatures that dropped as low as 5 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 15 degrees Celsius) early Saturday morning at the Chihuahua Zoo in the city of Aldama, about an hour north of Chihuahua.

Another winter storm is pounding much of the nation. Between Midwestern blizzards, record-breaking Northeast snowfall and widespread winter cold, what's with climate change and global warming?

Are the U.S. winter extremes proof that global warming isn't happening or is even a hoax, as many skeptics suggest? Are the winter extremes a product of a warming atmosphere, as many climate change advocates assert?

While opinions about climate change vary greatly, even among experts in climate science, the consensus is that short-range weather events have little to do with the climate change debate.

There's no debating that it's been cold, especially in January. According to Deke Arndt of the federal National Climatic Data Center, "January 2011 will rank among the coldest 20 percent of Januarys on record since 1895." December, although very cold in the Deep South, averaged near normal across the country since the Southern cold was balanced by warmth elsewhere.

"The prospect of domination of the nation's scholars by Federal employment, project allocations, and the power of money is ever present - and is gravely to be regarded."

-- Dwight Eisenhower,
1961 Farewell Address to the Nation

NOAA and NASA announced this week that 2010 was tied for the warmest year.

NOAA's Dr. Lubchenko, when she was president of AAAS in 1999, urged "Urgent and unprecedented environmental and social changes challenge scientists to define a new social contract ... a commitment on the part of all scientists to devote their energies and talents to the most pressing problems of the day, in proportion to their importance, in exchange for public funding."

NOAA and NASA are receiving big dollars $437M (NOAA) and $438M (NASA) in climate research funding and are expected to provide the information needed to support environmental, social and political agendas. NOAA and NASA also benefited from funding for climate change research from the Recovery Act of 2009 with up to $600 million. You can see how quickly the political operatives and the media enablers respond to those press releases (Hill story here).

The pressure has been mounting. The public doubt about global warming has been increasing in recent years given Climategate, and how promises of warm snowless winters failed. After cold and snowy winters in 2007/08 and 2008/09, the winter of 2009/10 was the coldest ever in parts of the southeast, and in parts of Siberia and the coldest since 1977/78 or 1962/63 in many parts of the United States, Europe and Asia. This past December was the second coldest in the entire Central England Temperature record extending back to 1659. It was the coldest ever December in diverse locations like Ireland, Sweden, and Florida. Reluctantly, alarmists changed their tune and the promise of warm and snowless winters as recent as 4 years ago morphed into global warming means cold and snowy winters.

Roland Fowler has made tiny Embarrass, Minn., very big on the nation's cold-weather maps.


EMBARRASS, MINN.

Every morning, Roland Fowler walks a snowy path across his yard, opens a white, wooden box, and checks the condition of Minnesota's soul.

Fowler, 78, is the National Weather Service observer in Embarrass, and his reports frequently reinforce the notion that Minnesota is not for the faint of heart.

They often land the tiny Iron Range settlement in the daily news as the coldest spot in the continental U.S. Not Mt. Washington. Not Caribou, Maine. Embarrass, Minn.

"I've worked hard at this weather stuff and it's paid off for the community," Fowler said.

The Weather Channel, Garrison Keillor and Jimmy Kimmel have all paid shivering homage to Embarrass over the years, and news crews are frequent visitors to Fowler's back door. That's just down the road from Cold County Liquors and the sign reading "The Cold Spot."

Atlantans For Global Warming

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Elizabeth Prann, Fox News

The South just isn't prepared for a quick clean up after a major snow storm. And the temperatures continue to drop below freezing every night this week. It doesn't make economic sense for Atlanta to house large fleets of snow plows and tons of salt and gravel. But residents need it this week.

The data is finally in and 2010 is the warmest year this century, of course that's not saying much because this century is only 11 years old.

1998 is still the warmist year since we've started tracking temps using satellite and 1934 is still the warmest since we started using weather stations. But third place is still surprising, by looking outside my window I would have picked 2010 as one of the colder years. Maybe the warm-mongers are right, maybe global warming does cause global cooling.

tcfshowchoveling.jpgA longtime Vikings season ticket holder is looking forward to the cool factor of seeing an outdoor game, 29 years to the day since his last one in the Twin Cities.

The last game at the old Metropolitan Stadium was Dec. 20, 1981. Steve Shepherd, who owns Shep's on 6th in downtown Brainerd, was there. He didn't expect to have the opportunity again but on Dec. 20, 2010, Shepherd plans to among the chilled fans cheering on the Vikings at the 50th anniversary celebration and Monday Night Football game. Even without the comforts of the fallen Metrodome.

"I'm definitely going to go," Shepherd said. "I think the nostalgia of being outdoors will be incredible.

"You've got to be there."

The seating, on a first-come, first-serve basis, he expects to be a mess. It should be a long day of standing before the seating bit actually starts. Shepherd will be going with his usual crew of four and meeting up with about 15 to 20 other people at the game.

europe_snow.jpgLondon: Heavy snowfall on Saturday brought large parts of Britain to a standstill by grounding flights and, blocking roads and rail networks in what is considered to be the coldest December on record.

Heathrow Airport cancelled all flights between 10 am and 5 pm on Saturday, with further problems at Gatwick and in Ireland, Scotland and Wales.

The announcement came after overnight blizzards and plummeting temperatures buckled a huge chunk of the nation's road and rail links on the busiest weekend for travel and shopping before Christmas.

Crickets chirping

That's the sound you would hear if you were looking for any sort of broadcast media coverage on site at the 2010 United Nations Climate Change Conference going on now in Cancun. A survey of the broadcast networks over the week leading up to the Cancun event and two days into it shows it hasn't even been mentioned on any of the evening news broadcasts, morning shows or Sunday morning public affairs programming.

However, the same event hosted in Copenhagen in 2009 was all over the radar of the broadcast networks. A similar survey of the same programming leading up to Copenhagen show five reports about the event, with ABC and NBC having reporters on-scene at the conference.

While all this occurs, the media focuses on the Arctic melting in the summer and the Antarctic melting in the winter.

414258-tom-smitheringale.jpgTOM Smitheringale wanted to prove the world was warming. Now he's another alarmist with frostbite.

The 40-year-old from Perth planned to be the first Australian to trek unassisted to the North Pole, but announced he'd raise some consciousness along the way.

As he wrote on his website: "Part of the reason Tom's One Man Epic is taking place now is because of the effect that global warming is having on the polar ice caps."

Indeed, he wanted to see the North Pole while it was still there: "Some scientists have even estimated that the polar ice cap will have entirely melted away by 2014!"

Have your say at Andrew's blog

But Antarctica isn't melting away, and Arctic ice has slowly increased since its big low in 1997.

Scare tactic newspaper advertisements from Britain's Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) have been banned by a government advertising watchdog agency. Two ads in a series which used child nursery rhymes to warn about the purported dangers of manmade climate change were found to have unsubstantiated claims in them.

The Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) reviewed the ads after receiving more than 900 complaints from British citizens - the most complaints it received on any ad last year.

The two offending ads were based on the nursery rhymes of 'Jack and Jill' and 'Rub a Dub Dub' and warned of the effects of extreme weather, a claim which has long been disproven.

Without a background in climate science, the ASA relied on the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's (IPCC) reports to determine the accuracy of the ads. In its conclusion, the ASA said the ads failed to meet code based on a lack of substantiation, truthfulness and their environmental claims.

2666375.jpgPARIS -- An event based around hundreds of fashionistas flying in from all over the world was never going to be a convincing platform for environmental campaigning, but designers in Paris haven't let that stop them.

While British designer Vivienne Westwood regularly rails against global warming, fashion king Karl Lagerfeld trumped her with a rival theory at the Chanel show on Monday: the globe is in fact cooling, and he has an iceberg to prove it.

"Have you felt any warming this winter?" Lagerfeld, with trademark black sunglasses and white ponytail, told reporters after showing his autumn collection, referring to freezing cold weather outside. "Maybe that's all nonsense, who knows."

Lagerfeld had erected a huge iceberg in the middle of the glass-domed Grand Palais to mark his chilly theme, dressing models in fake fur trousers and yeti boots to prepare them for the coming ice age.
