[Update : comment from Eric Steig]
There is less than a 1-in-27 million chance that Earth’s record hot streak is natural
Eric Steig, a professor at the University of Washington, told Mashable that satellite data’s main flaw is that it doesn’t tell us much about the changing climate where we live — that is, at the surface.
“We live on the surface, and the surface temperature…

‘Scientist’ Phil Jones’ comment to the UK Parliamentary Enquiry into Climategate 2009 :
“I’ve obviously written some awful emails, and I fully admit that..” – Phil Jones (*Still* the Director of the UK’s Climatic Research Unit (CRU)
It never ceases to amaze me when Hollywood liberals expect people to do as they tell them or when they endorse or campaign for certain issues but, when it comes down to it, don’t practice what they preach. The UK Daily Mailrecently reported that Hollywood movie star and environmentalist extraordinaire Leonardo DiCaprio has flown his personal jet six times between New York and Los Angeles totaling about $200,000 in private travel during April and May 2014.
The news cam about when hackers obtained information via the Sony corporate records leak resulting in the movie The Interview being released in which Wikileaks obtained the documents and made them public. As it turns out, somehow DiCaprio’s travel records are kept in Sony databases. Worst part about it, Sony was the one who picked up cost of the plane including catering and car service at DiCaprio’s departure and arrival destinations. This despite…

Many thanks to those who have helped restore Mother Earth to her former glory. Without these people, their orgs and their tireless taxpayer funded dollars, we would still have climate and weather.

Oh and thanks to those who funded those above who brought us back from the tipping point of climate thermageddon:

Gaia is simply not cooperating with the global warming scam.
Arctic sea ice is in the normal range.
Arctic sea ice is the thickest it has been since 2006
Antarctic sea ice is at record levels
The claimed melt areas of Antarctica (Larsen, WAIS) have excess sea ice, indicating the water and air is persistently colder than normal and near or below the freezing point.
Atmospheric temperatures are below what 97% of climate models predicted. Global warming theory is based on atmospheric temperatures.
Winter snow extent continues to increase, indicating that cold air is pushing further south.
US tornadoes have been occurring at record low levels in recent years. US hurricane activity is the lowest on record. Before data tampering, the US is experiencing a century long cooling trend. The US…

Climate fear is being used to take away human freedom and empower governments
By Paul Driessen ~
The Obama Administration is using climate change to “fundamentally transform” America. It plans to make the climate crisis industry so enormous that no one will be able to dismantle it, even as computer models and disaster claims totally lose credibility — and even if Republicans control Congress and the White House after 2016.
Numerous regulators, researchers, universities, businesses, manufacturers, pressure groups, journalists, and politicians now have such strong monetary, reputational, and authority interests in climate alarmism that they will defend its tenets and largesse tooth and nail.
They are pursuing this agenda even though global warming is dead-last in the latest Gallup poll of 15 issues: Only 25% of Americans worry about it “a great deal,” while 24% are “not at all” worried. By comparison, 46% are deeply concerned about the size and…

A peer-reviewed study worth a look at regarding the harm that limiting the poor access to fossil fuels actually causes:
“Lack of access to fossil fuels causing millions of premature deaths amongst the poorest of the planet”
On the same topic ~ a post from last year on the dangers of the UN’s war on fossil fuels:
“Shock news : UN Carbon Regime Would Devastate Humanity”
Look closely at this graphic showing access to electrical power in Countries and Continents around the World. Access to reliable and constant electrical supply is something which we here in the already Developed World take so utterly for granted, something the people in those Countries do not have, and while you see some numbers here which may seem relatively small, the access to reliable, constant electrical power that others living in those Countries have is nothing compared to the scale that we have that access to…..TonyfromOz.

“Giving society cheap, abundant energy would be the
equivalent of giving an idiot child a machine gun.”
– Prof Paul Ehrlich, Stanford University
A “Settled Science” update via Andrew Bolt’s Blog :
I guess just the acknowledgement is progress, but I do think Matthew England at least owes an apology.
NICK MINCHIN: …Basically we’ve had a plateauing of temperature rise. I mean we are in a warming phase. The world is either warming or cooling. It never stops doing nothing. It’s either warming or cooling. We’ve had a warming phase since the end of the little ice age, 150 years ago. In terms of global average temperature it peaked 1998 and it is effectively stable now, despite the increase in CO2. So there is a major problem with the warmist argument because we have had rising CO2 but we haven’t had the commensurate rise in temperature that the IPCC predicted.
ANNA ROSE: That’s just not true, Nick…
MATTHEW ENGLAND: What Nick just said is actually not true. The IPCC projections of 1990 have borne out very accurately…
… we’re halfway through this projected period. And the warming to date is consistent with that [IPCC] projection.
And so anybody out there lying that the IPCC projections are overstatements or that the observations haven’t kept pace with the projections is completely offline with this. And so anybody out there lying that the IPCC projections are overstatements or that the observations haven’t kept pace with the projections is completely offline with this. The analysis is very clear that the IPCC projections are coming true.
The near two-decade long “pause” in rising average global surface temperatures was a “distraction” that did not change long-term model predictions of a much hotter world this century, according to new research.
Climate scientists at University of NSW said “natural variability” could explain the slowdown or “hiatus” despite strongly rising levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere…
Research leader Matthew England said … “It is simply due to decadal variability. Greenhouse gases will eventually overwhelm this natural fluctuation,” he said…
“Our research shows that while there may be short-term fluctuations … long-term warming of the planet is an inevitable consequence of increasing greenhouse gas concentrations,” he said.
“This much-hyped global warming slowdown is just a distraction to the task at hand”.
Maybe, maybe not. But this concession is interesting:
The paper also suggests that decadal climate oscillations were not pushing heat into the deep oceans, another explanation for the “missing heat” and absence of surface warming.
Despite a steady increase in atmospheric greenhouse gases (GHGs), global-mean surface temperature (T) has shown no discernible warming since about 2000, in sharp contrast to model simulations, which on average project strong warming.

…On the plus side, at least he acknowledges the existence of “the pause” now, but says it’s irrelevant. Whatever.
