    After “adjustments” it will be the third warmest

    • Jimbo says:

      After “adjustments” it will be the hottest on the record. Worse than we thought! :)

      • EW3 says:

        What I find interesting is that supposedly January was an average month for temperature.
        How is that possible if this would be the third coldest winter?

      • rg irwin says:

        Funny you said that I just heard on one of the network channels a guy disputing the cold weather we are having as only confined to the US and “It looks like this winter is shaping up to be the third WARMEST globally of all time” Do you know why they stopped using the words Global Warming?

    • Jason Sparks says:

      No, it will stand. The term climate change denotes that we have more extremes, not a simple minded interpretation meaning “warming.” Spin masters like Rush and are great at convincing the un-educated that climate change means definitively warmer temps.

      • Climate has been changing for billions of years. Why are we against it now?

        • Wayne Beaver says:

          I was against it then and I am against it now.

        • Exactly. 4.6 billion give or take a millions or so.

        • Sal Minella says:

          Because now we can use climate change as a way to steal billions of taxpayer dollars.

        • Trevor Forrest says:

          Climate is changing, WE have little to do with it. It was changing long before we got here!

        • bartman says:

          It’s a ruse to scare people into caving on new taxes and accepting higher utility bills. The eco-left leaves millions of tons of carbon all over the planet as they jet around to scare people with manipulated data and threats, but most people older than 10 know that the earth cycle of seasons and weather is variable with a relatively constant median except for long-view cycles taking place over eons. Glaciers have been receding in Canada since BEFORE the industrial age could have an effect (pre-1900), and that’s because they were remnants of a distant ice age (The Little Ice Age).

      • Morgan says:

        No Jason, the term climate change is a blanket term that means you may need a blanket, you may not need one, your blanket might be wet, you can use it to block the sun, but no matter what happens, it’s caused by the CO2 that we make, even though it’s already been proven that CO2 does nothing.

        • Good, ,Morgan. Jason has been had.

        • JD K says:

          Jason belongs to the religious cult of “Manmade Climate Change”. Facts and reason are not going to shake his faith. If it gets warmer, his religion is responsible for it. If it gets colder, his religion is responsible for it. Ask him the percentage of the atmosphere that is made up of CO2…he doesn’t know nor does he want to. That would make him question his beliefs.

        • JMitch says:

          The amazing thing to me is how gullible we are to believe the government can do anything about it by passing a carbon tax. From what I’ve read, about 95% of CO2 is naturally produced and the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is less than 1/2 of 1% (385 ppm)! If these numbers are accurate, the most humans could control is 5% of the 385ppm or less than 20 ppm! It’s impossible, but if the governments of the world eliminated the human portion of CO2 by completely shutting down all bus, car, air travel along with all manufacturing, the best result would be a 365ppm atmospheric CO2 level.

          It won’t stop the liberal push to impose a carbon tax even though America’s contribution is less than 20% of the anthropogenic CO2 or 4 ppm!
          The climate will continue to change as it always has done. It’s a phony issue and all for the purpose of crating another income source for the government that will result in more control and another government bureaucracy. The deficit spending will continue!

      • Andy Oz says:

        Progressive “Education” has been busy producing alarmists by the thousand, whose intent is to panic the “uneducated” majority into voting for carbon taxes, higher energy prices, and “climate science” government grants, by promoting end of the world scenarios. The “uneducated” are demonstrating more intelligence than the “educated” when they don’t buy into the alarmist meme.

      • tomtruthteller says:

        Actually, the left began by using the term global warming. When climate scientists around the world proved that the global warming proponents were wrong, the conveniently changed the term to climate change. Those same people, despite studies that show climate change (without man-made CO2 influence) was cyclical, now have their backs to the wall. If we didn’t have the administration we have, and if we didn’t have arrogant leftists who believe they are the world’s brain trust, we would not be having this discussion. Instead, when those who expose the folly of the left, tell the truth and repeat what leading climatologists say, they are called spin masters by those who really live in a cloistered world, surrounded by man-made climate change myths. Those of us who are labeled “uneducated” (despite a Ph.D in my case) must not have your worldly knowledge since we are apparently led like sheep. The truth seems to be the exact opposite though.

        • Ole Diver says:

          You are so correct!
          Notice how people like Jason always turn to attack someone like Rush to prove their position. Rush has nothing to do with this article.
          The global whining crowd lost their argument and they are the ones that have tried to change the title from global warming to climate change.
          I also notice when one event like a huricanne happens the Global whiners jump in to say ‘see it was caused by global warming”, but when something happens that proves cooling, they go to pieces and say, “you can’t look at a single event to disprove GW”!
          They think we don’t know that. Most conservatives understand and goad the liberals with their own logic. They take us serious and just about have a nervous breakdown, while we simply sit back and laugh,
          Nothing in the world is a funny as the “Gore Effect”.

        • docd777 says:

          Actually, the Leftist-Scientists first claimed the” World-Freeze”-see TIME Mag.cover August 4 1974) Then in the early 90`s they realized they were wrong and shifted to Global warming.3 years ago, they again realized they could not keep pulling the wool over our eyes with Global Warming, so they conveniently went to the CLIMATE CHANGE-giving them the presumed flexibility to assign man-made blame to ANY&ALL weather patterns.It`s a shame that this “unsettled-Science” is being used to dupe all of the first & second world countries politically and economically.Two great books on the real NWO agenda AT WORK HERE :Agenda 21 and The Green Mask

      • J Hill says:

        In fact “Climate change” was a term they resurrected to keep the gravy train going once they knew they couldn’t hide the numbers any more. But nice try.

      • ” The term climate change denotes that we have more extremes”

        Why do you hate science? NEW STUDY suggests global warming decreases storm activity and extreme weather. ( http://wattsupwiththat.com/2014/01/25/new-study-suggests-global-warming-decreases-storm-activity-and-extreme-weather/ )

        But yes, the entire PREMISE of “climate change” is that CO2 acts as a “greenhouse gas”, trapping heat, and warming the planet, even though CO2 is only a trace gas in our atmosphere, comprising less than 0.03% of the atmosphere, and “man made” CO2 is only 0.03% of that infinitesimal amount. But the premise is being disproved daily as predictions are contradicted by actual temperatures. So far, the hiatus in warming has already disproven 95% of all the vaunted IPCC models, and if it continues for another few more years will have disproven ALL of the Global warm-mongers vaunted models.

        Which is why the religious zealots of the “global warming” movement are so desperately scrambling to explain where the hell the warming went. Because their religion is dying by the day:

          Earth’s oceans, forests and other ecosystems continue to soak up about half the carbon dioxide emitted into the atmosphere by human activities, even as those emissions have increased, according to a study by University of Colorado and NOAA scientists published today in the journal Nature.
          The scientists analyzed 50 years of global carbon dioxide (CO2) measurements and found that the processes by which the planet’s oceans and ecosystems absorb the greenhouse gas are not yet at capacity.
          “Globally, these carbon dioxide ‘sinks’ have roughly kept pace with emissions from human activities, continuing to draw about half of the emitted CO2 back out of the atmosphere.
          Last year, globally, human activity presented 35.9 Billion tons of CO2 to the atmosphere, this is impressive until one realizes that the atmosphere weighs in at 5.5 million trillion tons. Therefore, as a contribution to the atmosphere human activity is a staggering .00000359%.
          Last year, globally, $359 Billion was expended on Anthropogenic Climate Change abatement in the form of research, technology and renewable energy projects, almost a Billion a day. This amount has been found to be deficient by Anthropogenic Climate Change True Believers who feel that $700 Billion is appropriate.

        • JD K says:

          Don’t bother trying to quote statistics and facts. They don’t know and they don’t want to know.

          Not only does CO2 comprise less than 0.03% of the atmosphere, we only have the ability to impact less than 25% of that…and best case we could only decrease the 25% by about 25% (that amounts to eliminating about 1/16th of the 0.03% for you global warming zealots. I know you can’t do the math.). We have an infinitesimally small impact on atmospheric greenhouse gasses.

          But none of that matters to the global warming religious zealots.

        • Of course, every time someone exhales they produce CO2. Also if they get rid of all of it all the plants will die, then the herbivores will die and on and on….

      • canofsand says:

        The “simple-minded” are those who ran with “global warming” for a few years, saw it wasn’t really warming, refused to admit they were obviously wrong, and bought hook line and sinker the term change to “climate change”.

      • No, “climate change” is a new term. It was invented because calling it global warming made them all look as corrupt as they are. Especially after Winters like this.

      • Dan says:

        Jason, The term was “Global Warming” until about 4 years ago when Gore & Co. discovered that the earth had actually began a cooling phase. Desperate not to loose such a good scam to the truth they quietly informed the drones that the term going forward would now be “Climate Change” If these people were motivated by the truth they would be glad that there worst fears would be avoided, There motivation unfortunately stems from something a great deal more base than the desire to save the world. Its much less lofty than that. Plain old Power motivates them just like all the previous pushers of the communist/Fascist line.
        Look at the facts young man and consider the source. Be suspect when any group attempts to have everybody believe them to be inclusive of all and at the same time attempts would have their followers despise those that question them.. Have you ever tried to consider how such a great people as the Germans allowed the Holocaust to happen. They are far from stupid as a people. They were brainwashed my friend, not unlike how you are brainwashed. Hopefully this time it does not come to that as unfortunately there really is no USA around anymore to save the day..

      • Brian says:

        What will stand? And with 31 days still to go before winter is over and things warming up across much of the U.S. we should just wait it out and see. And Jason stop it with your word tricks – it’s not really about “climate change.” The whole debate is based on the premise that burning fossil fuels and eating beef adds CO2 and methane to the atmosphere, which in turn will cause catastrophic warming of the planet. Stop with the “climate change” diversion which has only come into play because the planet hasn’t warmed for 17 years despite an 8% increase in atmospheric CO2. You are not fooling the “uneducated.”

      • blankho says:

        Don’t forget spinmeisters Al Gore and Jim Hansen.

      • Ira Moe says:

        For every scientist you find that says “C C” is real I can’t find one that says its a hoax. I think the uneducated are the ones that insist EITHER way. You seem to fall into the “lead by the nose” group. If you don’t know it the fellow (name evades me at the moment) that started the “GW” craze was the same fellow that in the ’70s said we were heading into a iceage. Don’t believe anything untill its proven. . . don’t listen to Hollywood for you intel either! They are just goofy. Above all remember volcaneos put out far more pollution then man can create. No arguements just facts.

      • John says:

        “Climate Change” was the new term invented when idiots like you wound up with egg on your face because everything you say is bullshit. “global Warming” was YOUR term, now you are trying to disavow it.

      • Cincinnatus says:

        “WAR IS PEACE, FREEDOM IS SLAVERY, IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH, WARMING IS COOLING”

        Funny how the Church of Global Warming cannot even settle on a name. Having lived through the 1977 blizzard and listening to the “experts” tell us it is a result of global cooling it is obvious they spin the reality to fit whatever agenda they have.

        Funny whether it is cooling, warming, or change, the only thing that doesn’t change is their hand in my wallet and the expansion of government and it’s intrusion in to our lives.

      • alpha2actual says:

        It irks me when people conflate Anthropogenic Climate Change with Climate Change and Anthropogenic Global Warming with Global Warming. Climate Change is studied by Paleoclimatologists who work with ice and ocean sediment cores. They are interested in time frames of tens and hundreds of thousands of years and geological epochs. For instance, the climate record shows that there have been 5 interglacial (warm) and 4 glacial (cold) episodes during the current 400,000 record. We are obviously enjoying an interglacial event but 12,000 years from now all of Canada and 40% of the United States including Manhattan, thankfully, will be under 5,000 feet of ice. It is undoubtedly true that 99% of scientists believe in Climate Change however to state as fact that 97% believe in Anthropogenic Climate Change is both absurd and a statistical improbability. The climate record also shows that global temperature increases precede attending increases in atmospheric CO2 by periods ranging from 400 to 1400 years.
        The fossil record and ocean sediment indicates that six thousand years ago Northern Africa rapidly devolved from a verdant South America Savannah into what is now the Sahara Desert. This event caused catastrophic upheavals to populations bordering the Mediterranean Sea. This begs the question, what anthropogenic vector caused this to happen? I’m quite sure that the heavy industry of the period didn’t play a role in this event. I’m with the Axial Precession hypothesis on this one. Anyone who believes that global climate supercomputer models are useful is, of course, living in a state of sin. Apologies to John von Neumann’s famous quote on mathematical algorithms that generate random numbers.

        • lucygoose says:

          “I’m quite sure that the heavy industry of the period didn’t play a role in this event.” Icing on the perfect cake. Thank you.

      • Marto says:

        The climate has been changing for millions and millions of years and you libs are just now figuring it out? Now who sounds uneducated? You people started off calling it global warming, and when that didn’t work out because the earth wasn’t turning into a fiery ball, you changed it to climate change to suit your argument. I have an idea: You could say that mankind is having a major effect on weather patterns, and you could back it up by calling your little theory global warming during the summer months, and global cooling during the winter. In the meantime, Al Gore thanks you for buying into his crap and making him a very rich man in the process…..

      • Milan Conner says:

        Don’t you mean the “Kool-Aid drinkers?”

      • Bob Kutz says:

        Let us be clear. Their models (GCMs in the field) indicated warming. They didn’t indicate change. We know the climate changes, it always has. The models did not indicate weather extremes, there is no scientific evidence backing this claim and the data seems to indicate the opposite. Flat drought and ‘extreme precipitation’ and cyclonic energy indexes and hurricanes, as well as tornado activity trending down for the last 50 to 70 years.

        Why don’t you look this stuff up. It isn’t right wing spin doctors who are inventing things to discredit the alarmists, it is the data, combined with the increasingly desperate non-scientific claims of the alarmists that are putting the whole CO2 induced AGW alarmism industry in the grave.

        The fact that they’ve gone from warming to climate change to weather extremes with zero evidence and no real changes in their model’s output should tell you something.

        Get off the ship while you still can. It is sunk, it’s just a matter of time, and the Gods are already laughing. (look up Einstein’s quote for reference)

      • svede12 says:

        The real “spin masters” are the ones with their hands out for billions of dollars in funding. So glad that you consider yourself “educated” and above the riff raff

      • Ernest Bush says:

        You are leaving out the spin masters like NASA and NOAA, along with John Kerry and Obama, who continuously remind us that climate change means we are going to burn up the planet. I left out Al Gore, also. Don’t forget him. Nobody here is fooled by the term climate change. It is just the latest in a long line of terms the left (you included I think) uses to mean the same thing. The latest, of course, is climate weirding. It all means that we have to turn over control of our lives and money to the government, which will automatically fix global warming.

        What seminar did you attend that you are fool enough to think anybody here, which includes honest scientists, believes anything that you have said or might ever say. FOOL!

      • Ha ha. That wasn’t Rush. That was *your* guys. They called it ‘Global warming’ until 1998 when it leveled off.

      • Kevin says:

        funny how that term just popped up One day

      • dan says:

        What? Spin masters? You mean, you, and your ilk? When Global Warming wasn’t working..because of cooling…you changed it to “Climate Change.” So, if it gets warmer, you are covered. If it’s colder, you are covered. Drought? Covered. Wet? Covered. More snow? Covered. Less snow? Covered.
        You and your FakeGlobalWarming scam artists out to be ashamed. Pure money grab.

      • Joe says:

        You changed the terms to meet your own stupid zeal. Tell that to Nye if you even know who that is.

      • WKHawk says:

        Actually, “climate change” has now been substituted with “climate stability”. It indicates the believers of catastrophic destruction due to climate don’t know what is happening or what will be the outcome. With these loose terms you can argue it either way.

        And most of the “stable climate” advocates believe the end result will be a warmer planet so Rush can’t be blamed for that.

      • jnsesq says:

      • Andy DC says:

        There is no evidence that weather is more extreme that it has historically been. In 1700 they blamed witches for extreme weather and this climate change nonsense is virtually the same thing. Only with a huge profit motive behind it.

      • The term “global warming” was not created by the right; it was created by the left. It was a simplified means of describing the so-called “greenhouse” effect of carbon emissions. “Inconvenient’ as it may be, that’s the “truth”.

      • Dave says:

        Jason, I think you are the one who is “simple minded.” If it’s cold, it’s climate change. If it’s hot, it’s climate change. If temperatures are about where they should be, that’s climate change, too. Do you have any idea how ridiculous people like you sound to the rest of us? I’m surprised you didn’t say. “that’s not climate, it’s just weather.”

      • Richard Barbazette says:

        Riddle me this.

        Scientists are measuring climate change over thousands of years to determine the world average temperature within tenths of a degree. So, today with our instruments we can do that but how do scientists measure the average temperature two thousnad years ago for comparison? And remember, that’s to within tenths of a degree? Tree rings or seeds? Not accurate enough. Carbon dating? Can’t get an world average.

        Your answer?

      • Jason quit being a sheeple. It was all Global Warming for years. You are to young to remember, but in the 70′s it was “the new iceage”, I realize that the left wing media has been downplaying the significance of it, but it was a big enough news story at the time that SNL did skits on it. Then in the 80′s when people were frying eggs in pans on sidewalks it started changing to Global Warming, Now since there has been almost no increase in global temps in 15 yrs, the so-called “pause”, they have been calling it “climate change” . They keep adjusting the way they collect and interpret data to justify their theory. If you truly want to know why, follow the money. Al Gore has millions invested in “green energy” if he can convince government to pass the laws he wants he will make billions. Now, that being said, who else benefits? The government for one, they get to burden everyone with more taxes, take more of you money. Also, the climate change scientists also benefit, most of their research is funded by grants from governments. If there were no climate change, they would be out of a job. THINK FOR YOURSELF!! DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH!!

      • JMitch says:

        Jason, starting in the 80′s, the whole argument was based on the claim that greenhouse gasses (especially man caused CO 2) caused the planet to heat up. Predictions claimed that Ice would disappear from the arctic, coastal U.S. would be flooded, our children and grand-children would never see snow. V.P. Al Gore told us the earth had a fever. If it was all caused by the greenhouse gas C0 2 as the left claims, why isn’t the heating of the earth continuing at an increased rate? Seems that if the heating has not increased in the past 10 or 15 years despite the fact we’re still driving SUV’s and producing carbon emissions, the CO2 / hot house relationship should be questioned. One thing is for sure…It’s not settled science. Anthropogenic global warming or man caused climate change, what ever the left want to call it, is not science, but an ideology.

      Published on Nov 23, 2013

      The RINOs and the democrats want to hand our taxes and law making over to the UN.

      The UN is ramming ‘Agenda 21′ and ‘Common Core’ down the throats of the world, the UN’s World Bank is complicit in forcing poor farmers off their own land in Africa and South America for corporate and university endowment ‘tree farm/carbon credit’ investments, is deeming sovereign resources off limits, trying to eliminate (citizen’s only) the right to bear arms, our country’s sovereignty and our individual freedoms and now trying to force a ‘world’ climate change tax and ‘world’ wealth tax on us AND under the guise of saving us from asteroids, the UN is NOW trying co-opt our US space program, it’s technology, resources and MORE OF OUR TAXES.

      … time to reduce federal to it’s constitutional mandate, re-coup our state’s rights, take back federal land -our state’s property from the feds), time to take back control of our own waterways and de-fund the UN, kick them out of our country, claw back pensions and restitution of it’s assets.

      We must start with voting the RINOs and democrats OUT 2014

      So now the UN noticed Bloomberg’s dictatorial impositions on New Yorkers and has appointed him to be bulldozer for the UN’s climate change world tax.

      Through imposed ignorance we are handing over our resources, funding (taxes), technology and sovereign decision making to basically an unelected, new monarchy (UN)made up of mostly 3rd world dictatorships who are just tools of a few dynastic families.

      … time to reduce federal to it’s constitutional mandate, eviscerate regulatory, defund the IRS and the Department of Education, re-coup our state’s rights, take back federal land -our state’s property from the feds), time to take back control of our own waterways and national parks and de-fund the UN, kick them out of our country, claw back pensions and restitution of it’s assets.

    • You better throw in that new calculation “wind chill”. Does that make it warmer or colder?

    • Paul Grew says:

      Remember what VP Al Gore said in Oscar his nominated film, “The planet has a fever”.
      Kool-Aid, also do you remember the hacked East Anglia University emails and data, they were falsified, which by the way was the end of U.S. Cap & Trade in Congress. The science is in, It’s THE SUN, which is in its 12 year solar cycle. WHAT WE SHOULD BE FOCUSING ON IS THE STUDY OF THE SUN, NOT CARBON AND CO2 EMISSIONS.
      Yes their is pollution but countries like china and Indonesia do not abide by the Kyoto accords, its all about money, profits and consumerism. This country had massive water and air pollution in the 1960′s and 70′s, and we still have many EPA cleanup sites around many states. Technology and manufacturing knowledge has helped in this country. What we need is more funding of science to understand all aspects of the SUN to understand your so-called Global Warming/Climate Change, remember what chicken little said. Some how the terms has changed over the years. “The sky is falling”.

    Thanks, Steven, for tell it like it is.

    Truth will defeat untruth.

  3. Anto says:

    Nah, Steve. It’s not. When viewed from Indonesia, it’s the most “fearsome destructive weapon” John Kerry has ever seen. There’s no snow in Jakarta, you see (at least, not until Al Gore visits). So, the message resonates more than it does when there’s a raging blizzard outside.

    In fact, according to Kerry, anybody – such as you – who insists this is actually a cold winter is merely “a tiny minority of shoddy scientists and science and extreme ideologues”. You have to remember here that anybody who insists winter is cold, or that there has been almost two decades of flat temperatures is merely attempting “to compete with scientific facts”.

    Kerry insists that, “we don’t have time for a meeting anywhere of the Flat Earth Society.” In fact, “‘in a sense, climate change can now be considered the world’s largest weapon of mass destruction, perhaps even, the world’s most fearsome weapon of mass destruction.”

    Kerry was in Indonesia on the last leg of a three-nation tour of Asia that started in South Korea. After leaving Indonesia on Monday, he planned to visit Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates.

    Nobody present thought to question Mr Kerry about what kind of propulsion method he was using to fly around the world, or whether he would be having an operation on his return to Washington to remove the massive chunk of hypocrisy wedged so far up his ass, it was visible every time he opened his mouth. Bit of a shame, that.

    • Andy Oz says:

      Kerry has no idea. Indonesia is not at risk from “rising sea levels” in any way, shape or form. Most of its islands are volcanic and are continuously rising faster than current 1 mm/ yr. it is also a big clean coal exporter. Is that the real reason he is there? To take a dump on one of their largest employers. Indonesians are at much more risk of earthquake, tsunami, ash fall and pyro clastic flows. Kerry is a shoddy politician and now wants to dupe SE Asia.

        PNG tectonic uplift rate, and thus Indonesia’s uplift rate, is the same or faster than the “measured” sea level rise of @1.4mm+/- 1.0mm

        There is zero danger from rising sea levels to Indonesia.
        There is a risk of overdevelopment in Jakarta causing poor drainage to result in floods during the wet season, but that has nothing to do with CO2 or rising seas.

  8. SAMURAI says:

    Why confuse the issue with facts?

    “97% of scientists” apparently believe empirical data is no longer necessary to confirm an hypothesis, ergo, CAGW is confirmed because “97% of all scientists” say it is…..

    Some “deniers” may say such an argument is circular and not in accordance to the Scientific Method, but since “97% of scientists” don’t think this a problem… it must not be… Hmmm.

    Seriously, how much longer can this disconfirmed CAGW hypothesis continue?

    With almost 18 years of no global warming trend, despite 1/3rd of all CO2 emissions since 1750 made over the last 18 years, I really don’t see how this farce can last another 5 years…

    There must be some integrity that still exists in the scientific community.

    What was man’s involvement during the two coldest winters on record?

    • LariAnn says:

      Man’s involvement is in focusing just on the eastern US as though that comprises the entirety of the world. So it’s colder than average in the eastern US. Why no mention of warmer than average in the western US, western Canada, Alaska, etc? If you are going to claim facts are on your side, use ALL the facts, not just the ones the appear to support your position. You’ll be more credible, then.

      • This graph is for the entire US. I live in Fort Collins, Colorado and it has been extremely cold this winter. Montana has been more than 20 degrees below normal this month. You have no clue what you are talking about.

      • WKHawk says:

        But Lari that is how continental or global temperatures are measured. They take averages of large areas.

        Global climate doesn’t indicate the whole globe has the same climate, just shows averages over vast regions.

    Nobel Laureat and Physicist Hal Lewis Oct 6, 2010 letter of resignation to the APS

    APS management has gamed the problem from the beginning, to suppress serious conversation about the merits of the climate change claims. Do you wonder that I have lost confidence in the organization?

    I do feel the need to add one note, and this is conjecture, since it is always risky to discuss other people’s motives. This scheming at APS HQ is so bizarre that there cannot be a simple explanation for it. Some have held that the physicists of today are not as smart as they used to be, but I don’t think that is an issue. I think it is the money, exactly what Eisenhower warned about a half-century ago. There are indeed trillions of dollars involved, to say nothing of the fame and glory (and frequent trips to exotic islands) that go with being a member of the club. Your own Physics Department (of which you are chairman) would lose millions a year if the global warming bubble burst. When Penn State absolved Mike Mann of wrongdoing, and the University of East Anglia did the same for Phil Jones, they cannot have been unaware of the financial penalty for doing otherwise. As the old saying goes, you don’t have to be a weatherman to know which way the wind is blowing. Since I am no philosopher, I’m not going to explore at just which point enlightened self-interest crosses the line into corruption, but a careful reading of the ClimateGate releases makes it clear that this is not an academic question.

    I want no part of it, so please accept my resignation. APS no longer represents me, but I hope we are still friends.

      Thanks, J. Hill, for that information.

      The scientific community was recruited and paid well to deceive the public after world leaders saw their own mortality in the force released from the cores of heavy atoms on 6 & 9 August 1945 over Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

      Serious charges against the post-1945 scientific establishment are provided with figures of precise experimental data to back up the charges in my autobiography.

      https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/10640850/Chapter_2.pdf

      The common thread is deception about the source of energy in cores of:

      1. Heavy atoms like Uranium
      2. Some planets like Jupiter
      3. Ordinary stars like the Sun
      4. Galaxies like the Milky Way

      To verify this for yourself, ask any member of the UN’s IPCC, the UK’s Royal Society, the US or any other National Academy of Sciences, or the Swedish or Norwegian Nobel Prize Committee to publicly address three figures of precise experimental data (Figures 1-3, pages 19-27, my autobiography).

  21. Alice Miller says:

    Scientists usually look at facts. And when the facts don’t support the theory, the theory is discarded. Hopefully that will happen with the highly politicized “global warming” theory. This “global warming” fraud is not about climate change. It’s about redistributing wealth from the industrialized nations to the less industrialized nations. It’s also about power. The “global warming” hustlers want to transfer sovereignty from individual nations and give it to the UN. Even if “global warming” were true, and even if mankind was responsible, as unlikely as that is, their proposed cure is to stick their hands in your pockets.

    NOT the coldest winter, but a reflection of the polar vortex effect on the eastern half of the country. The west was warmer than usual by about the same amount. This is not adjusted for land area.That plot is of “all HCN stations”, and not adjusted for the big differences in frequency distribution across the US. For example, New York has the same number of stations as Nevada and Texas combined, but 15% of their area on the globe.

  31. Regardless, it has been the 3rd coldest winter on record…As the only species that is capable of destroying or preserving the earth, we do need to respect it’s resources, not poach from it, or consume everything on it out of greed or convenience. I’m a Christian and don’t believe it be around much longer in the form we know it anyway, but I’m not going to disrespect the planet either. I’m going to do my best in beautifying my house and neighborhood, and be as cost effective, and frugal in my use of utilities. I would like to see and use good renewable energy, if only the greedy, entitled, and arrogant people in charge of bringing it to me or make it happen,would live up to their responsibilities.

      Haven’t you heard? They already have the answer to that one too. It is THE REAL AGENDA. It’s called TOO MANY PEOPLE. So lottery tickets will be drawn and only 5% of the current population will be winners. Get your ticket early. This has been an agenda for quite some time now. Back in the 90′s a summit meeting of global mucky mucks held in Silicon Valley determined that if there were 90-95% fewer people on the planet, that the planet would be a better place for ‘them’ (the attendees) to live in. They quipped…we couldn’t pollute enough to destroy anything. Bill Gates was among those who attended. Back in the 70′s the Stonehenge Monument in Georgia was constructed (google it)…it states bring the population of the world to 500,000….it’s all about POPULATION control…and we know who the losers in that argument are going to be.

  37. WALT C says:

    And since we all know that the earth was created in 1899, this would be the third coldest. I understand that the article refers to the coldest on record in the U.S. the implication is that this is some kind of man made phenomenon. Since North American continent is much older than the United States, this is kind of stupid article. Compare it to at least he last thousand years to get a little perspective. It has been much warmer and wetter here in Wyoming in the past. I know because of the sea shells I keep finding in my back yard.

  38. Syd Chaden says:

    Interesting. The sun’s magnetic field is changing, and the earth’s magnetic field is changing and getting weaker. The exact cause of the weakening of the earth’s magnetic field hasn’t been determined, but, carbon dioxide levels, ObamaCare and Israeli settlements have all been mentioned as possibilities. No one knows what the effects are, either, but generally, it is feared that they may be bad. There is concern that wealthy people will control an inordinate share of the weakened magnetic field, and therefore, a new government agency will undoubtedly be established to assure that everyone receives a fair share of magnetism. Since this may be a emergency, expedited action is called for. And so, a sole-source contract will be awarded to the same people who created the ObamaCare website. Of course, aberrations in the sun’s or the earth’s magnetic fields could disrupt electronic communications, and prevent the operation of a website. I don’t know why Obama or Sibelius didn’t think of that.

    • omanuel says:

      Oh no, Syd, the Standard Solar Model of Hydrogen-filled stars won’t allow that to happen!

      The Sun is a constant heat source. That is how Al Gore and the UN’s IPCC scientists figured out that CO2 caused global warming.

      Their research was so impressive they shared a Nobel Prize!

    Looking at this graph of average winter temps over the past 120 years or so, and with my statistical understanding of linear regression, if I visually place a straight line fit to this data I see a slightly positive slope of maybe 1-2 degrees C.

      We’ve (97% of scientists!) gone over this many times before: Anthropogenic Global Warming causes WARMING. Coincidentally, it also causes COOLING. Man – and more specifically, Republicans – is at fault for everything, other than the periods of warming and cooling that occurred before man’s (and by “man,” I include of course, “women.” And LGBTs that also may do things that cause warming, though not nearly as much as straight people. Or white males. Particularly Catholic white males, who are mostly at fault for AGW. In fact, we should really change “AGW” to “CWMGW” for accuracy. Someone call Dr. Mann – there’s got to be a chart he can “trim data” on to prove inconclusively that Catholic white men are destroying the Earth.).
