From the article:

temperatures_fahrenheit

“The problem with that argument is that we experienced the bulk of that warming between 1979 and 1998 . . . since then, we’ve actually had temperatures DROPPING!

As can be seen in this chart, we haven’t seen any global warming for 17 years.”


There Is No Global Warming ( Moneynews, Oct 18, 2014):

You’ve heard how the Earth is rapidly heating up . . . causing drought, famine, and mayhem.

For sure, Al Gore and the media encourage you to jump on the global warming bandwagon every time there is a heat wave or when a photo of a lone polar bear floating on an iceberg emerges.

But how much has the world really warmed? Continue reading »

- Uh oh… Signs of an unusually cold winter coming our way (Ice Age Now, Oct 18, 2014):

“The snow in Siberia is piling up, and if it keeps coming, people in New York may have to bundle up this winter,” says Bloomberg.

There’s a theory that the amount of snow covering Eurasia in October is an indication of how much icy air will sweep down from the Arctic in December and January, pouring over parts of North America, Europe and East Asia. Continue reading »

- NASA Stumped – Deep oceans have not warmed since at least 2005 (Ice Age Now, Oct 8, 2014):

Oops – Bad news for alarmists – The deep ocean may not be hiding heat after all – How to explain the 18-year hiatus in “global warming” now?


Deep oceans have “not warmed measurably”

According to NASA, “the cold waters of Earth’s deep ocean have not warmed measurably since 2005, leaving unsolved the mystery of why global warming appears to have slowed in recent years.”

“When scientists at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena, California, analyzed satellite and direct ocean temperature data from 2005 to 2013, they found that “the ocean abyss below 1.24 miles (1,995 meters) has not warmed measurably,” the space agency announced in a press release on Monday.

Temperatures in upper oceans not rising fast enough to account for stalled air temperatures Continue reading »

says the Hays (Kansas) Daily News.


The Daily News reported that an all-time (114-year) record was broken on September 13, 2014, when the thermometer dipped to 31 degrees F.

The low of 31 degrees not only was a new record for the day, but a new record for the first frost of the fall. Continue reading »

RFK Jr. - DiCaprio

- RFK, Jr. wants me jailed … as a war criminal! (Ice Age Now, Oct 6, 2014):

Wealthy Hollywood and other elites demand that other people change their lifestyles, to protect the planet from over-hyped “catastrophic manmade climate change.”

It was a close call, but my favorite marcher on New York City’s Avenue of the Self-Righteous, however, was Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. He thinks people like me “should be in jail … with all the other war criminals” – for the “crime” of effectively explaining that humans are not causing “dangerous global warming” …  that climate change is natural … and that the policies advocated by Mr. Kennedy and his anti-capitalist comrades are the real threat to the world’s poor and downtrodden.

He wants me to go to jail, even while AGW alarmists continue advocating anti-human policies that will lead to energy-deprivation, poverty, misery, disease and early death in so many countries.


RFK, Jr. wants me jailed … as a war criminal!

Perhaps he should serve time for eco-manslaughter and crimes against humanity?

By Paul Driessen

The “people’s climate march” was notable for the amazing energy, economic and climate illiteracy displayed by the mostly young people parading along New York City streets September 21.

Their chants, rants and placards demanded that we stop climate change (that’s been ongoing throughout Earth and human history), eliminate fossil fuels (that supply 80% of the energy that makes their modern living standards possible), ban fracking (which is largely responsible for reducing the carbon dioxide emissions they blame for global warming that ended at least 18 years ago), and abolish capitalism!

Some of the absurdities can be enjoyed here, here, here and here. Among my personal favorites: Continue reading »

- Temperatures were warmer than today for most of the past 10,000 years (Ice Age Now, Sep 15, 2014):

25 May 10 – The revamped cap-and-trade (control-and-tax) bill that Senators Joseph Lieberman (I-Conn.) and John Kerry (D-Mass.) are trying to foist on the American public is predicated on a flat-out lie.

The control-and-tax proponents would have you believe that our planet has been enduring unprecedented global warming (now coyly referred to as “climate change”), but the facts do not bear that out. Facts. Oh, those damnable facts.

Look at this chart.

Easterbrook-Natural_global_warming
Created by Cuffy and Clow in 1997, and based on Greenland ice core records, this chart shows global temperatures for the past 15,000 years.

You’ll see that today’s benign climate is not even close to being the warmest on record.

Not even close.

Temperatures have been warmer than today for almost all of the past 10,000 years. Continue reading »

- Martini Meltdown (Ice Age Now, Sep 29, 2014):

Sea-ice in the Arctic. That ice ain’t melting and the polar bears are thriving.


Martini Meltdown

By Dr. Klaus L.E. Kaiser

The Sunday Times has reached a new height of incoherence with its science editor’s, (Jonathan Leake) column on Arctic ice cap in ‘death spiral.’

Nothing could be further from the truth. The ice cover in the Antarctic has recently reached a new all-(recorded)-time extent and the ice cover in the Arctic appears to be on a similar path. No wonder as the frost-free days in the Arctic, above 80 N have been fewer in the last two summers and the last winter in North America was brutally cold and long. Continue reading »

Originally broadcasted March 8, 2007 on British Channel 4.

A documentary, by British television producer Martin Durkin, which argues against the virtually unchallenged consensus that global warming is man-made. A statement from the makers of this film asserts that the scientific theory of anthropogenic global warming could very well be “the biggest scam of modern times.”

Elitists Stage ‘Biggest Ever’ Climate Change March …


The-Great-Gatsby

- ‘Historic': 300,000+ March in NYC for Climate Action (Common Dreams, Sep 21, 2014)

- World stages ‘biggest ever’ climate change march (PHOTOS, VIDEO) (RT, Sep 21, 2014):

Not even a gloomy sky could dampen the spirits of climate activists Sunday, as up to 310,000 marched through New York City pushing for international action against global warming. Thousands of rallies across the world called on governments for change.

Described by organizers as the largest climate-related event in the history of the planet, the People’s Climate March had people lined up across nearly 30 New York City blocks before the event began. According to organizers, the crowd’s numbers easily blew past original projections, which estimated that some 100,000 would attend.

Among the participants were high-profile names such as UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, former Vice President and Nobel Peace Prize winner Al Gore, and actor Leonardo DiCaprio – a newly appointed UN representative. Local presence was also strong, with New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio joining the procession, as well as City Council. Continue reading »

- Global Un-Warming? Antarctic Sea-Ice Reaches Record High Levels (ZeroHedge, Sep 15, 2014):

In what appears to be an awkward moment of uncomfortable fact, ABC reports satellite imagery reveals an area of about 20 million square kilometres covered by sea ice around the Antarctic continent – the highest level of coverage since records began. This is the 3rd year in a row that the sea ice coverage has reached a record level – increasing at 1.5% each decade since 1979. However, there is another side to this, as the area covered in sea ice expands scientists have said the ice on the continent of Antarctica which is not over the ocean continues to deplete. The climate is changing, one way or the other.

Scientists say the extent of Antarctic sea ice cover is at its highest level since records began. Continue reading »

H/t reader squodgy:

“The Rothschilds AGAIN…..”


Dr. David M.W. Evans consulted full time for the Australian Greenhouse Office (now the Department of Climate Change) from 1999 to 2005, and part time 2008 to 2010, modeling Australia’s carbon in plants, debris, mulch, soils, and forestry and agricultural products. Evans is a mathematician and engineer, with six university degrees including a PhD from Stanford University in electrical engineering. The area of human endeavor with the most experience and sophistication in dealing with feedbacks and analyzing complex systems is electrical engineering, and the most crucial and disputed aspects of understanding the climate system are the feedbacks. The evidence supporting the idea that CO2 emissions were the main cause of global warming reversed itself from 1998 to 2006, causing Evans to move from being a warmist to a skeptic.


Earth

- The Skeptic’s Case (Ludwig von Mises Institute, Feb 24, 2012):

We check the main predictions of the climate models against the best and latest data. Fortunately the climate models got all their major predictions wrong. Why? Every serious skeptical scientist has been consistently saying essentially the same thing for over 20 years, yet most people have never heard the message. Here it is, put simply enough for any lay reader willing to pay attention. Continue reading »

- Arctic ice cap covers 656,000 sq miles MORE than 2 years ago (Ice Age Now, Aug 31, 2014):

Daily Mail trashes Al Gore’s prediction that the Arctic would be ICE-FREE by now.


Stunning satellite images show summer ice cap is thicker and covers 1.7 million square kilometres MORE than 2 years ago…despite Al Gore’s prediction it would be ICE-FREE by now,” reads the headline.

“The North Polar ice cap is falling off a cliff. It could be completely gone in summer in as little as seven years. Seven years from now,” said Al Gore in 2007 as he accepted the Nobel Peace Prize for his campaign to fight so-called “global warming”. Continue reading »

Kangaroos-snow

- Australian Bureau of Meteorology caught red-handed manipulating temperature records (Ice Age Now, Aug 30, 2014):

Accused of criminally adjusting data to show “global warming” where none actually exists.


“At Amberley, Queensland, for example, the data at a weather station showing 1 degree Celsius cooling per century was “homogenized” (adjusted) by the Bureau so that it instead showed a 2.5 degrees warming per century,” says this article on Brietbart.com.

“At Rutherglen, Victoria, a cooling trend of -0.35 degrees C per century was magically transformed at the stroke of an Australian meteorologist’s pen into a warming trend of 1.73 degrees C per century.

“Last year, the Australian Bureau of Meteorology made headlines in the liberal media by claiming that 2013 was Australia’s hottest year on record.

“But we now know, thanks to research by Australian scientist Jennifer Marohasy, that the hysteria this story generated was based on fabrications and lies. Continue reading »

- Obama Set to Sign UN Climate Change Agreement WITHOUT Congress (The Daily Sheeeple, Aug 27, 2014):

The New York Times is reporting that the Obama administration is working behind the scenes to “forge a sweeping international climate change agreement to compel nations to cut their planet-warming fossil fuel emissions,” without seeking approval from Congress whatsoever:

In preparation for this agreement, to be signed at a United Nations summitmeeting in 2015 in Paris, the negotiators are meeting with diplomats from other countries to broker a deal to commit some of the world’s largest economies to enact laws to reduce their carbon pollution. But under the Constitution, a president may enter into a legally binding treaty only if it is approved by a two-thirds majority of the Senate.

To sidestep that requirement, President Obama’s climate negotiators are devising what they call a “politically binding” deal that would “name and shame” countries into cutting their emissions. The deal is likely to face strong objections from Republicans on Capitol Hill and from poor countries around the world, but negotiators say it may be the only realistic path. [emphasis added]

Notice the statement didn’t say climate change “rules” to be enacted, but “laws” to reduce carbon pollution. Continue reading »

- If it quacks like a duck … it must be a turtle (Ice Age Now, Aug 22, 2014):

“Why We’re Definitely Not Headed for Another Ice Age.”

When I saw that headline in Newsweek, I thought, do they know something that I don’t? But once I read the article, it left me wondering how in the world they came to that conclusion.

It reminds me of the great retort by paleontologist Robert Bakker to those who did not agree with his belief that many kinds of dinosaurs were birds.

“There are still a few of my colleagues who think if it walks like a duck, breathes like a duck and grows like a duck, it must be a turtle,” said Bakker.

Let’s see if this Newsweek article is a duck or a turtle. Continue reading »
