“BABY it’s cold outside”!

ANOTHER week, another dose of political correctness gone mad as CBC radio pulled the Christmas classic from their line-up claiming that the 1940s holiday song promotes rape culture.

THAT’s not the only thing that the PC brigade and their climate comrades would probably like to pull from the records …

IT’s not even winter yet in the Northern Hemisphere, and we’ve already witnessed a multitude of record cold events set :

Largest Increase In November Sea Ice Volume On Record

The increase in Arctic sea ice volume during November was the largest on record.

November snow cover was the largest on record in North America.

And it was the fourth coldest November on record in the US.

No Trend In Arctic Sea Ice Extent Or Volume

1980 was an anomalously high (sea ice extent) year

– Walt Meier NSIDC

Claims that Arctic sea ice is disappearing are patently false. There has been no trend in Arctic sea ice extent since the start of MASIE records in 2006.

There also has been no trend in Arctic sea ice volume since 2006.

According to the world’s leading climate scientist, the Arctic is already ice-free.

NC snow: Governor Cooper declares State of Emergency ahead of winter weather | abc11.com


Governor Cooper on Friday declared a State of Emergency for all 100 counties as North Carolina prepares for a major winter storm expected to hit the state starting Saturday.

 

As North Carolina prepares for a winter storm Gov. Roy Cooper calls “the real thing,” Cooper has activated the National Guard and plans to declare a state of emergency.

Cooper said at a briefing Friday that the impacts from the weekend storm will vary across the state, with forecasters calling for up to 18 inches of snow in the mountains and possible flooding at the coast. He says a storm of this magnitude is rare so early in the season.

OBSERVATIONS

  • NO major networks are covering this. In the age of “man-made Global Warming” hysteria, mainstream media prefer “hot” stories to “cold” ones.
  • IT’s called “weather”. Which is correct. But, if this were a State of Emergency declared for a “heatwave”, it would be all over the mainstream media, on repeat, labeled “climate” and blamed on mankind’s gasses (as happens every summer nowadays).
  • MAJOR snowstorms are becoming more frequent globally as CO2 rises. The exact opposite of what the “97% consensus” promised us.
  • IT’s not even Winter in the US, yet!

UPDATE

More than 247,000 customers in North Carolina were without power Sunday afternoon, more than 82,000 in South Carolina, and another 75,000 in Tennessee, Alabama and Mississippi. Parts of Georgia also saw outages.

The mercury is forecast to drop to 23 F (-5 C) overnight in Winston-Salem, not the best of times to be without power.

“North Carolina is in the cold, icy grip of a mammoth winter storm,” North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper said at a news conference. “Enjoy the beauty but respect the danger. Don’t be fooled. This storm is treacherous.”

The National Weather Service warned that the snowfall would continue until Monday, with the heaviest amounts in northwest North Carolina and southern Virginia. More than a foot (30 cm) of snow had already fallen on parts of North Carolina and Virginia  by Sunday afternoon.

Parts of western North Carolina had already been hit with 14 to 15 inches of snow, making it impossible for snow-clearing crews to get to some areas.

“Winter storm warnings are in effect from northeast Georgia to central Virginia,” the NWS said in its advisory. “Expect near-impossible travel conditions.” This is a “major” winter storm.

GLOBAL Temperature Drops By 0.4°C In Three Years

Mother Nature, yet again, doing her best to bury the failed global warming theory. Mainstream media silent, of course…

NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT

By Paul Homewood

From David Whitehouse:

In a press release the World Meteorological Organisation said,

The main message was echoed by others, such as the BBC.

Likewise the Guardian:

It all goes to show how temperature data can be misrepresented if you don’t show the temperature data itself.

Fig 1 is the HadCRUT4 monthly global temperature from the UK Met Office.

As you can see a graph tells a very different story. The past decade has a climate change contribution but what elevates the past four years above the previous ones is an El Nino event, the strongest one on record. As we have said many time before an El Nino is not a climatic phenomenon, it is weather. What’s more, after its peak in 2016 the global temperature has fallen by around 0.4° C. The past four years being the warmest on record is true, but it has…

BEFORE Mann Made Climate Change, Chicago Was Buried Under A Mile Of Ice

Thickness Of Ice Sheets 20,000 Years Ago - CLIMATISM

Thickness Of The Ice Sheets Compared With Modern Skylines


THE Laurentide Ice Sheet was a massive sheet of ice that covered millions of square kilometers, including most of Canada and a large portion of the northern United States.

THE last advance covered most of northern North America between 95,000 and 20,000 years ago.

THIS ice sheet was the primary feature of the Pleistocene epoch in North America, commonly referred to as the ice age. It was up to 2 mi (3.2 km) thick in Nunavik, Quebec, Canada.

PRIOR to the intervention of humans – when the climate was ‘stable’ – Chicago was buried under a mile of ice :

Pleistocene

The maximum extent of glacial ice in the north polar area during the Pleistocene period included the vast Laurentide ice sheet in eastern North America.

SNOWPACK

IN order for glaciers and ice sheets to form, they require lots of snow to fall.

FOR most of this Century, the planet has seen a significant uptick in fall and winter snowfall during some extremely cold winters :

CLIMATE CHANGE alarmists blame the increase in snowfall on man-made Global Warming!

TAKE the Guardian’s resident climate ‘expert’ George Monbiot :

*

BACK ON PLANET EARTH

THIS is how a non-activist (real) expert explains the record snowfalls that have persisted over the past decade :

VETERAN METEOROLOGIST Barry Burbank :

“INTERESTINGLY, some scientists have stated that increasing snow is consistent with climate change because warmer air holds more moisture, more water vapor and this can result in more storms with heavy precipitation. The trick, of course, is having sufficient cold air to produce that snow. But note that 93% of the years with more than 60″ of snow in Boston were colder than average years. The reality is cooling, not warming, increases snowfall.” – Veteran meteorologist Barry Burbank

CHICAGO AND THE GRAND SOLAR MINIMUM

ELECTROVERSE – the excellent site “Documenting Earth Changes As We Enter A Grand Solar Minimum” reports on this weeks record snowfalls in Chicago. Snowfalls that demonstrate Mother Nature is doing her best to not only bury the failed Global Warming theory, but to perhaps return The Windy City to the Pleistocene epoch and the era of the mile-high Laurentide ice sheet!

This Week Saw one of the Worst November Snowstorms to Ever Hit the Chicago Area – Electroverse

THIS WEEK SAW ONE OF THE WORST NOVEMBER SNOWSTORMS TO EVER HIT THE CHICAGO AREA

“One of the largest November storms on record dumped as much as 13 inches (33 cm) of snow on the Chicago area Sunday into Monday,” says the Chicago Tribune.

The storm, which all by itself made this the sixth-snowiest November in Chicago history, jammed the morning commute.

It forced the cancellation of more than 1,200 flights.

It shut hundreds of schools.

And it knocked out power to more than 340,000 homes and businesses.

For the full article from the Chicago Tribune, click here.

But AGW meant less snow, right? That’s what we were told?

Well we’re watching yet another narrative shift as the reality changes — the first was the re-branding of Global Warming to Climate Change, and the latest is that a warming world means we should now expect more snowfall, not less.

That’s right, apparently our baking planet will now witness more record cold temperatures, blizzards and early season snow.

I call bullshit.

And I call you a moron if you’re buying this tripe, because it’s so obviously the sun.

We’ve known the mechanism for decades, as this article from 1975’s Science News explains:

Meridional Circulation

Meridional Circulation

It’s all cyclical.

And as our star continues its decline into this next Grand Solar Minimum, a cooling globe will become ever-more apparent — and ever-harder for the UN to cover up.

But they’ll no doubt give it a bash, they’ve been doing it for decades after-all.

Back in 1989 the UN came out with this: “entire nations could be wiped off the face of the Earth by rising sea levels if the global warming trend is not reversed by the year 2000.

“Governments have a 10-year window of opportunity to solve the greenhouse effect before it goes beyond human control.

“As the warming melts polar icecaps, ocean levels will rise by up to three feet, enough to cover the Maldives and other flat island nations.”

Just how many dire tipping points and deadlines have passed since 1989, and how many more need to come and go before populations fully wake?

It’s an epic fraud.

The sun is again shutting down.

Prepare for the cold times.

GLOBAL TEMPERATURE PLUNGE : Coolest September In The Last 10 Years


We’ve got to ride this global warming issue.
Even if the theory of global warming is wrong,
we will be doing the right thing in terms of
economic and environmental policy.

– Timothy Wirth,
Fmr President of the UN Foundation

GLOBAL atmospheric temperatures continue their rapid decline off the record heights of the 2016 super El Niño, despite record and rising CO2 emissions.

UAH global average lower tropospheric temperature (LT) anomaly for September, 2018 was +0.14°C, down from +0.19°C in August:

Latest Global Average Tropospheric Temperatures

Since 1979, NOAA satellites have been carrying instruments which measure the natural microwave thermal emissions from oxygen in the atmosphere. The intensity of the signals these microwave radiometers measure at different microwave frequencies is directly proportional to the temperature of different, deep layers of the atmosphere. Every month, John Christy and I update global temperature datasets that represent the piecing together of the temperature data from a total of fifteen instruments flying on different satellites over the years. A discussion of the latest version (6.0) of the dataset is located here.

The graph above represents the latest update; updates are usually made within the first week of every month. Contrary to some reports, the satellite measurements are not calibrated in any way with the global surface-based thermometer records of temperature. They instead use their own on-board precision redundant platinum resistance thermometers (PRTs) calibrated to a laboratory reference standard before launch.

THE September anomaly represents a 0.72°C drop since 2016 super El Niño heights, bringing temps down now to ~1988 levels.

DON’T expect the mainstream media to report in this anytime soon. They are only concerned about hot and climbing temperatures to push their  global warming climate change agenda.

GLOBAL TEMPERATURE MEASUREMENTS – You Be The Judge!

Satellites Vs Land-Based Thermometers?

Satellites Vs Thermometers?

SATELLITES

NASA’s MSU satellite measurement systems, generate the RSS and UAH datasets, which measure the average temperature of every cubic inch of the lower atmosphere, the exact place where global warming theory is meant to occur.

BEFORE 2016, UAH and RSS both tracked closely showing very little warming in their data sets which led to the identification and validation of “the pause” in global warming which has since become the subject of much research and debate in peer-reviewed scientific journals.

From the RSS website:

“The simulation as a whole are predicting too much warming” – RSS

HOWEVER, by 2016, Carl Mears, who is the chief scientist for RSS (Remote Sensing Systems) and who has used the pejorative “denialist” in various correspondence, decided that “the pause” was not a good look for the global warming narrative so RSS was massively adjusted upwards, conveniently eliminating “the pause” in the RSS dataset.

MEARS’ objectivity towards the business of global temperature data collection and reporting can be found in his commentary on his website:

MEARS then published a paper claiming that new and improved adjustments have “found” that missing warming.

temperature trends to the diurnal cycle adjustment. J. Climate. doi:10.1175/JCLID-

UAH NASA SATELLITE (Featured)

UAH is the satellite data set featured in this post and is jointly run by Dr. John R. Christy –  Distinguished Professor of Atmospheric Science and Director of the Earth System Science Center at The University of Alabama in Huntsville. And Roy Spencer Ph.D. Principal Research Scientist at the University of Alabama in Huntsville.

SPENCER commentary on the divergence between RSS and UAH post “adjustment”:

“We have a paper in peer review with extensive satellite dataset comparisons to many balloon datasets and reanalyses. These show that RSS diverges from these and from UAH, showing more warming than the other datasets between 1990 and 2002 – a key period with two older MSU sensors both of which showed signs of spurious warming not yet addressed by RSS. I suspect the next chapter in this saga is that the remaining radiosonde datasets that still do not show substantial warming will be the next to be “adjusted” upward.

The bottom line is that we still trust our methodology. But no satellite dataset is perfect, there are uncertainties in all of the adjustments, as well as legitimate differences of opinion regarding how they should be handled.

Also, as mentioned at the outset, both RSS and UAH lower tropospheric trends are considerably below the average trends from the climate models.

And that is the most important point to be made.”
