Shades of 1970 - here we go again.
.

>>>Better start investing in some warm clothes because German scientists are predicting that the Earth will cool over the next century.

German scientists found that two naturally occurring cycles will combine to lower global temperatures during the 21st century, eventually dropping to levels corresponding with the “little ice age” of 1870.

“Due to the de Vries cycle, the global temperature will drop until 2100 to a value corresponding to the ‘little ice age’ of 1870,” write German scientists Horst-Joachim Luedecke and Carl-Otto Weiss of the European Institute for Climate and Energy.

Researchers used historical temperature data and data from cave stalagmites to show a 200-year solar cycle, called the de Vries cycle.<<<

So we need to drill for more energy to keep us warm. Will anyone ever admit that trying to predict global weather patterns is futile.

Your link, fly, just sourced the "satellite data" I just debunked. I will say the professor's proposal is a bit extreme however. I won't go along with that.

Another kooky professor heard from.
.
.
>>>Mankind is doomed unless we immediately de-industrialize and slash carbon dioxide emissions, according to Guy McPherson, emeritus professor from the University of Arizona.

McPherson appeared on Paul Henry’s New Zealand-based talk program to warn that global warming was “irreversible” and the only way to stop it is to “terminate industrial civilization.”

“I think there’s ample chance we can save the living planet, but not our species. … Some people think that this whole thing is about us,” McPherson told the Paul Henry Show. “We just showed up… I don’t think this is about us, I think it’s about the living planet.”
.
.
The Arizona climate professor and grief counselor reportedly lives in “a straw house in the middle of the woods surrounded by animals.”

“I’m not suggesting to people that they live an austere life like I’m doing,” McPherson said. “I’m suggesting we make this about the other organisms.”

McPherson’s remarks comes after reports that there has been no global warming for more than 18 years, according to satellite data — an absence of warming that has baffled climate scientists.

So far there are about 52 explanations for why global warming stopped nearly two decades ago. Lately scientists have been postulating that ocean cycles may be playing a large role in cooling the planet, but not all can agree on what the main cause of the so-called “pause” in global warming.<<<

Sure so he hops on a deathgas spewing jumbo jet and flies halfway around the world to tell us not to spew deathgases. Maybe he needs some grief counseling to deal with his depression and stuff.

Glowbull Warming is a hoax to extort money from you and to "fundamentally change" how we live - but not how the elite live like this nutcase and Albore with his multiple mansions and his frantic flying around in his deathgas spewing planes to tell us we all gonna die when the sky falls in....

I guess they still want to argue about the satellite temps are better indicators.

"This 'consensus gap' is in large part due the media giving disproportionate coverage to climate contrarians. In our paper, we sought to evaluate whether that disproportionate media coverage was justified by examining how well contrarian hypotheses have withstood scientific scrutiny and the test of time. The short answer is, not well."

"However, it turns out that satellite measurements of atmospheric temperatures are very tricky. The satellites are positioned above the atmosphere that they're trying to measure, and have to peer through many different atmospheric layers. Their orbits also drift, and satellites have limited lifespans, forcing scientists to splice together measurements from different instruments.

Gradually, various problems with the satellite temperature measurements were identified, some by the Huntsville group, and several by other groups. Corrections were made to the record, and before long the satellite record showed the warming of the lower atmosphere happening at a similar rate to that estimated from the thermometers around the globe."

So, mini, you mockingly attempt to disprove NASA's global temperatures by showing us temperature of the contiguous United States, an area that represent just 1.5% of the entire Earth's surface. Talk about "propagandist bunkem". But don't worry, I'm sure all of your followers on this site lapped up your post as if were valid.

And you're still way ahead of flyboy, who uses the term "glowbull warming" while once more presenting his own special brand of bull. Hey, genius, the Great Lakes, which comprise approximately 1/2000 of the Earth's surface, do not determine the temperature for the rest of the planet.

Worst case scenario, AGW is just insurance against being flung into the next ice age and another round of dark ages lasting thousands of years before we become a type 1 galactic race.

(type one is far beyond fossil fuels, they harness all forces of their planet(s) and are capable of producing more energy then found on their planet, deflect comets and asteroids away from their planets with ease and dodge ice ages like they are nothing and teraform other planets, super volcanos are merely an inconvenience)

We clear type 0 and at the mercy of our climate and volcanos.

Dr. Judith Curry - the UN IPCC's latest assessment report (AR5) weakens the case for AGW

Dr. Curry, an AR4 author, recently projected that the next decade will not see any more Arctic ice loss, that in 2015 the Arctic will not give any ice back, and possibly greater than 2014. Highly respected for her previous work in atmospheric science, she is now considered a heretic.

"You know how the system works."

13 years and counting.

"I will never forget your stories about the conversations you had with folks at NASA GISS."

It was nasa Langley people I don't know if they were actual "GISS".
My little nasa click back then were made up of people who were pretty high up. GS-11 and up, so their bosses were all appointed positions.

These people had been working at nasa from any where from 15 to 30 years and the only sure thing was that they were always going to be cut down and made smaller and smaller. They were more worried about saving their jobs and keeping their kids in privet middle school and high school or at the nearly all white poquosan grade school district than anything else. Do you know how hard it is to find an administrative job that pays around 100k a year in a good school district?
According to all the brain power at nasa Langley it is impossible.
If that was my job on the line, what ever bs came down the pipe line I would be smoking it too.

Yes. The Pentagon says that climate change is an Immediate Risk to National Security. They have a lot of brainwashed people like you believing that we need to prepare for situations for which there is no anecdotal evidence nor scientific basis; we are going to waste more precious funds on this scam. Such a crying shame.

Just one more sign that glowbull warming is not taking place as predicted
.
.
>>>
Water temperature of the Great Lakes is over 6 degrees colder than normal.

Meteorologist Mark Torregrossa writes on Michigan Live about the lingering effect of historic ice extent last winter in the Great Lakes and late ice melt this summer due to that extent:

Lakes Superior and Lake Michigan are currently six degrees colder than last year. If the water continues to remain colder than normal, it could have an impact on Michigan’s winter in several ways.
The average water temperature on Lake Superior and Lake Michigan is currently colder than both last year and the long-term average.Mark Torregrossa

Currently Lake Superior has an average surface water temperature of 47.6 degrees. Last year on this date Lake Superior was at 53.7 degrees. The long-term average water temperature on Lake Superior for October 11 is 51.1 degrees.

So Lake Superior is 6.1 degrees colder than this time last year, and 3.5 degrees colder than normal.

Lake Michigan has an average surface water temperature of 56.0 degrees, while last year at this time it was 62.1 degrees. The long-term average water temperature on Lake Michigan for October 11 is 58.4 degrees.

Lake Michigan is also 6.1 degrees colder than this time last year, and 2.4 degrees colder than average.

Lake Huron is 5 degrees colder than last year, and only 1.5 degrees colder than normal.
.
.
.
But if the lake temperatures continue at this colder pace, cold air will have an easier time moving into Michigan.

So the first impact of cold water could be earlier cold temperatures in November and December.

If the lakes continue through winter colder than normal, freezing over of the lakes would happen earlier.

How does this cold fact square up in the face of claims of “hottest ever”? Is the region in for a record cold winter? It sure looks like it may be more likely due to the influence of this massive heat sink.<<<

"Sea ice as a whole is decreasing as expected,"

Like you said, flyboy, "flat out lie". Sea ice as a whole is not decreasing and that was completely unexpected. The Arctic was supposed to be completely ice-free several years ago, according to the proponents of global warming. I haven't found one AGW proponent that said the Arctic ice would rebound before it actually did. Most keep saying every year that it'll shrink the next year, and then it doesn't. So they ignore their long string of being wrong at every step, and expect people to continue to believe them. They make excuses such as the supposed ignorance of the general public to explain why nobody believes them.

It's just like the reports on a poll from several years ago, showing that 18% of the people thought Obama was a Muslim. They assumed that 18% of the people hadn't heard that Obama said he was a Christian. They didn't even conceive of the possibility that those people simply didn't believe what Obama said.

The illogic and squirming is getting hilarious. Most ice since records started and its because of Glowbull Warming - yeah sure it is. Next time I'm gonna make ice cubes I will fire up the oven to do it.
.
.
>>>A new report from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) finds that the Antarctic ice cap has exceeded 20 million square kilometers, a freeze that hasn't been seen since 1979 when the agency began to compile records.

"Sea ice surrounding Antarctica reached a new record high extent this year, covering more of the southern oceans than it has since scientists began a long-term satellite record to map sea ice extent in the late 1970s," the NASA website reported on October 7.
.
.
The amount of ice did surprise many, and Claire Parkinson, a senior scientist at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, noted that "not every location on the face of Earth is acting as expected." She went on to say that the readings make scientists ask "OK, this isn’t what we expected, now how can we explain it?"

"There hasn’t been one explanation yet that I’d say has become a consensus, where people say, ‘We’ve nailed it, this is why it’s happening,'" Parkinson added.

Regardless, Parkinson and others at NASA contend that all this is still a result of global warming.

"The planet as a whole is doing what was expected in terms of warming. Sea ice as a whole is decreasing as expected, but just like with global warming, not every location with sea ice will have a downward trend in ice extent," she said. <<<

Hilarious is too mild a word to use. I do believe that these so called scientists have all gone to the Obama school of speaking - never take responsibility for nothing - always blame someone else and flat out lie....

Hemond: "It was clear from Argo there is no heat going into the ocean. It was clear that the climate reality deniers were lying, plain and simple"

Yes. When I first read Trenberth's 'the-missing-heat-went-deep-sea-diving' WAG, I knew AGW was a dead hype-othesis walking. That was before I saw the Argo data. It was physically impossible.

When you must bend the laws of physics to keep your hypothesis afloat, it's going to sink eventually. As soon as the money-flow runs out, the bad ship AGW will hit the inevitable iceberg.

Before then, I fully expect that the cooler temperatures will be blamed on man. The cycles of El Sol and the oceans will continue to be ignored. The globalists understand the utter stupidity of the masses.

Can you think of any way to convince the warmers that the proof they seek that AGW is caused by man can be found in West Africa, and all they have to do to find it once there is eat some bush meat and drink some jungle juice?

From Fly's post "What they have found is that the deep ocean has not warmed measurably since at least 2005."

First we were told that the heat was being trapped in the upper atmosphere. We were told if they got the money to go find it they could prove Co2 was warming the planet because that is where the Co2 hangs out. It was going to be the smoking gun so to speak. Well they got their money and did the samplings and found bupkiss. We heard all kinds of excesses for the missing heat in the upper atmosphere and the claim died away along with the research money.

Then as the warming stopped we were told the heat was diving to the deep ocean. All they needed was the money and tools to find it. Well in a repeat of the hot spot in the upper atmosphere they didn't find the smoking gun in the bottom of the ocean either.

The next place they will claim the heat is hiding will be Cancun and they will need to do on sight studies to find it. They just need the money to get there.

flyboy: "In June, EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy said the agency’s Clean Power Plan “is about environmental justice … because lower income families, and communities of color are hardest hit.” "


Well, that pretty much shows the purpose of AGW, which is the same as Bozocare. The game plan is to make everything far more expensive for the people who pull their own weight in the world, and then use wealth redistribution schemes to take care of the left's faithful.

Now think about the consequences. This causes more and more people to become dependent upon government because the price of the essentials in life keep going up and out of more and more people's reach without help from government. When this happens ever more wealth redistribution in the form of subsidies is required to keep those newly dependent people afloat, which both places more money under the control of government and those who run it, and it simultaneously removes wealth from those who have wealth and would be opponents of redistribution. This process is what both AGW and Bozocare are all about, and what they are designed to cause to happen. Make no mistake about it, the left and the democrat party are purposely working toward making existence economically impossible for as many people as possible without government assistance by purposefully driving up the cost of life's essentials.

Well its finally here - AGW - aka glowbull warming is racist.

>>>In June, EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy said the agency’s Clean Power Plan “is about environmental justice … because lower income families, and communities of color are hardest hit.” But according to a new study, minorities in at least one state will still be hardest hit. Michael Bastasch of The Daily Caller writes, “The Pacific Research Institute reports that annual electricity spending for an African-American household in Ohio will rise from 4.5 percent of their income to 5.8 percent of their income due to the EPA’s plan to cut carbon dioxide emissions from power plants – an increase of $408 annually in energy costs.” FreedomWorks' Deneen Borelli opined, “It’s the green movement’s new Jim Crow law. These harmful regulations are going to drive blacks into government dependency. By harming the fossil fuel industry, you’re harming hard-working Americans.” As outlandish as it may seem, broadening the government-dependent base to further centralize control is exactly the EPA’s endgame. It’s also worth noting that Ms. Borelli is black, so the race card doesn’t apply.<<<

How many times does it have to be said that doing dumb thngs like raising the costs of energy has consequences adn most of them are not what we would consider good ones.

I wonder what the race hustlers will do about this - Think ol Al will stand up and in a Sharp tongue demand we burn more coal?

1700, 1713, 1728, 1752. What do these years have in common? Charleston, SC was devastated by hurricanes. Wonder if it was warmer then or warmer now?

Florida has gone 3,270 days without a hurricane – nearly nine years

"Florida has gone 3,270 days without a hurricane – nearly nine years and, by far, the longest stretch on record (the next longest streak is 5 seasons from 1980-1984, in records dating back to 1851)."

Thanks for putting up that James Delingpole/Argo link flyboyUT. As you may recall, our own ministorage put up a link referencing Argo a couple of months back. MS's original link knocked me on my keister. It was clear from Argo there is no heat going into the ocean. It was clear that the climate reality deniers were lying, plain and simple.

The trouble with MS's link though was it was not for the layman. Too technical. Easily ignored. But James Delingpole, is another kettle of fish. He is a mainstream pundit and is read by 1000s of followers. He presents the climate reality POV with clarity for the mainstream reader.

When writers like Delingpole put out a piece, even one as technical as Argo, it gets read by a huge audience. The climate reality deniers have a lot to answer for.

"No credible discussion of climate change can be comprehensive while omitting such a mass event. " ..... If you add up one million zeros its still a valueless answer. Steve it does not matter how many people who dont know beans from buckshot say the same erroneous claptrap - its still not correct - its still a pile of garbage

>>>The cause of climate alarmism has been struck another near-fatal blow by a new study from a NASA research team at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California.

Using a combination of satellite observations and direct measurements taken by a network of 3,000 floating Argo temperature probes, the NASA team set out to calculate temperature changes and thermal expansion in the deep ocean (below 1.24 miles).

What they have found is that the deep ocean has not warmed measurably since at least 2005.

This unfortunate discovery represents a major problem for the climate alarmists because the "missing heat" supposedly hiding in the deep oceans has long been their favoured explanation as to why there has been no measured "global warming" for the last 18 years.

Here, for example, is what Gerald Meehl of the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) told National Geographic in February this year:

"Strong trade winds are bringing cooler water to the surface in the equatorial Pacific and mixing more heat into the deeper ocean."

This meant, National Geographic helpfully summarised, that "the missing heat from global warming is being stored in a deeper warm pool in the western Pacific."

And here is NCAR's Kevin Trenberth, Godfather of the "missing heat hiding in deep ocean" theory, speaking in October last year to Bloomberg.

In fact, there is mounting evidence that deeper regions of the ocean, down to 2000 meters, are absorbing heat faster than ever, Trenberth said in a phone call. His research shows the oceans began taking on significantly more heat at around the same time the surface warming began to slow in 1998. His widely cited work was published just after the cutoff to be included in the IPCC report.

The irony, says Trenberth, is that when the surface of the planet is unusually sweltering, the Earth actually radiates more heat into the atmosphere, in effect slowing the long-term warming of the planet. And in “hiatus” years, when the surface is cooler, the Earth absorbs more of the sun’s heat deep the oceans, slowly cooking the planet. What you see isn't always what you get.

What has happened here, in other words, is that for years the warmists have been fobbing off their teachers with the excuse that "the dog ate their homework". But it simply won't wash any more because the teacher has now discovered that they don't actually own a dog.<<<

Now forgive me I copied the whole article but it was short and it was all pertinent. It does seem that once more the dark forces of the evil minions of the treehugger AGW folks are shown to be based on soemthing other than reality and science. Whooooooooya - but will tye ever admit it.

Maybe if someone gets a million of them to all throw a temper tantrum at the same time they will make a difference - nahhhhhh...

No credible discussion of climate can happen without the opposing view being heard and respected in a debate of the facts. That doesn't happen at these events. It almost never happens because the lead supporters of Co2 centric warming wont debate with anyone who doesn't agree with them and want their opponents hauled into court, imprisoned and of killed.

No credible discussion will take place under these conditions.

This is what passes for "rationality" and "science" among progressive liberals.

"Well if that many people all protested all around the world in a single day that's nothing to sneeze at."

No, just something to laugh at, like World Jump Day. I couldn't find the original page on the web anymore, but I saved it back in 2006:

"July 17, 2006 -- Hans Peter Niesward, from the Department of Gravitationsphysik at the ISA in Munich, says we can stop global warming in one fell swoop or, more accurately, in one big jump.

The slightly disheveled professor states his case on WorldJumpDay.org, an Internet site created to recruit 600,000,000 people to jump simultaneously on July 20 at 11:39:13 GMT in an effort to shift Earth's position.
Niesward claims that on this day 'Earth occupies one of the most fragile positions in its orbits for the last 100 years.' According to the site, the shift in orbit will 'stop global warming, extend daytime hours and create a more homogeneous climate.'"

Millions of people signed up for the first World Jump Day. No word on how many signups for the one in July of this year. Millions of people with no concept of even the most basic physics. Regardless of how many ignorant people join a protest, it doesn't change reality.

SemiSteve - "Skeptics, meet your growing opposition. "

Yes, the left is getting increasingly strident, as their predictions fail to come true. Science is not determined by public opinion, and many groups give in to threats to prevent a public relations problem, not a scientific one.

SemiSteve - "No credible discussion of climate change can be comprehensive while omitting such a mass event. "

Actually, no credible discussion of climate change can happen at such a mass event. Credible discussions require facts and reasoning, not mass events and rhetorical speeches.

SemiSteve - "Does that make what's been going on here kind of shallow incomplete and self-reaffirming?"

No, it makes mass events look kind of shallow, incomplete, and self-reaffirming.

SSteve: "No credible discussion of climate change can be comprehensive while omitting such a mass event."

It was discussed right here plenty, the week leading up to the global propaganda event, and for the week after - replete with quotes of the preposterous lies told by organizers and alarmist celebrities - and contrast by REAL data that contradict the propagandist messages being told that weekend, complete with photos of signs and literature that showed it had nothing to do with climate change, and everything to do with pushing global socialism.

SSteve: "Does that make what's been going on here kind of shallow incomplete and self-reaffirming?"

The echo chamber was in New York City. Indeed, the message was shallow, self-affirming, and devoid of intellectual honesty, or science. It had nothing to do with the climate.

SSteve: "Well if that many people all protested all around the world in a single day that's nothing to sneeze at."

True. The organizers had been planning it for a long time, they are well-organized, and utilized social media incredibly effectively. If only decent people with integrity knew how to be so well organized.
