Surface Temperature Corroborated By Satellites – Met Office 2013

They’re trashing sat data before the post El Niño cooling kicks in this year, trashing their theory even more….tick tock.

We are assured by the crooks experts that the satellite temperature data must be wrong, as it keeps giving out the wrong message.

This is all very strange, because the Met Office’s Peter Stott told us only two years ago thatchanges in temperature observed in surface data records are corroborated by measurements of temperatures below the surface of the ocean, by records of temperatures in the troposphere recorded by satellites and weather balloons,

This backed up what the IPCC had said in their Fourth Assessment Report in 2007:

Lower-tropospheric temperatures have slightly greater warming rates than those at the surface over the period 1958 to 2005.

The radiosonde record is markedly less spatially complete than the surface record and increasing evidence suggests that it is very likely that a number of records have a cooling bias, especially in the tropics. While there…

Ongoing Renewables Investment “Crisis” in Australia

Ironically, wind and solar need to be backed up 24 hours a day, by two things, in order to survive:

1. Other-people’s-money and …..
2. Coal-fired power.
(cough, splutter, ahem.)

How much more time and how many more tax-payer funds need to be wasted before politicians, the main stream media and arm chair eco-evangelists (the groupthink green masses) realise that intermittent, unreliable and costly energy – wind and solar – will always remain a dud-investment and a dud product when they rely completely on massive subsidies and 24/7 fossil-fuel backup power for survival?

Watts Up With That?

Guest essay by Eric Worrall

Aussie Greens are lamenting that banks are still unwilling to lend to green projects, because they are worried about the reliability of political support, and the continuity of the generous government subsidies which make green projects possible.

Confidence in renewable energy sector ‘evaporated’ after Abbott cut: Bloomberg

Investment in large-scale renewable energy in Australia remains stagnant almost two years after the Abbott government began a review of the sector, according to an annual survey by Bloomberg New Energy Finance.

Investors spent just $15 million since February 2014 on big wind, solar or other clean energy projects that were not otherwise supported by government programs such as the Australian Renewable Energy Agency.

The Abbott government’s repeal of the carbon tax in July 2014 – which removed long-term price support – and a mishandled review that led ultimately to a cut of about one-fifth in the 2020…

The Climateers new pause excuse born of desperation: ‘the satellites are lying’

Watts Up With That?

Add another one to the huge list of excuses for “the pause” in global temperature. Reader “Al Gorez” emails:

The climate alarmists have come up with a brilliant new excuse to explain why there has been no “global warming” for nearly 19 years: the satellite data is lying.

And to prove it they’ve come up with a glossy new video starring such entirely trustworthy and not at all biased climate experts as Michael “Hockey Stick” Mann , Kevin “Travesty” Trenberth and “I’d be tempted to beat the crap out of Dr. Pat Michaels” Ben Santer. (All of these paragons of scientific rectitude feature heavily in the Climategate emails) See more at Breitbart here.


Riiight. Because we all know how reliable their preferred surface temperature measurements are, as illustrated by these examples from NOAA’s USHCN climate monitoring network:

Those and hundreds of other stations have been encroached upon by…

Dellers on the climate alarmists latest desperate attempt to keep their scam going:

The climate alarmists have come up with a brilliant new excuse to explain why there has been no “global warming” for nearly 19 years.

Turns out the satellite data is lying.
