It May Be Record Cold Over Much Of The Planet For The Past Two Winters, But It Is The Hottest Year Ever

When people have been living a lie for too long, they start to believe that they are correct and the gods are wrong.

They just need to make their lie a little larger and extend it a little longer, and eventually it will become the truth.

    I have strong doubts about their ability to collect accurate data and how they show it.

    Due to the downward trend for the last 10 years here in the US, it just doesn’t fit.

  2. Where are all the global warmers? They can’t handle the cold and snow!

    The Longest & Quietest Solar Magnetic Minimum in Recorded History

    A key indicator of solar magnetic activity, the Ap Index (average planetary magnetic index) has reached the lowest absolute values, lowest 5 year moving average values, and by far the highest number of continuous months ≤ 10 since record keeping by NOAA began in 1932:

    Yes, it’s a conspiracy! Scientists, the UN, governments have secretly all become commies after all and are now plotting to deceive the world so they can tax us to death! Paranoiacs of the world, unite!

    Climate change was predicted to bring more extreme weather events, guys. Guess you missed that part.

    • thechuckr says:

      Sense Seeker, Satellite observations show temperature anomalies for November of .38 for UAH, and .312 for RSS. James Hansen’s GISS shows an anomaly of .74 but worse than that, uses the period of 1950 to 1980 as the baseline from which the anomaly is derived. If GISS uses the 1980-2009 period like UAH and RSS, the anomaly would only be .46. Furthermore GISS extrapolates temperatures for 1200 kilometers away to “calculate” global temperatures where there is no data. Hansen and GISS are unscientific and their numbers cannot be believed nor relied-upon. Oh, and please define “extreme” weather events – you might want to read,

      Di Baldassarre, G., A. Montanari, H. Lins, D. Koutsoyiannis, L. Brandimarte, and G. Blöschl (2010), Flood fatalities in Africa: From diagnosis to mitigation, Geophys. Res. Lett., 37, L22402, doi:10.1029/2010GL045467.

      Based on the results of both continental and at‐site analyses, we find that the magnitude of African floods has not significantly increased during the Twentieth Century (Figures 2 and 3), and that climate has not been a consequential factor in the observed increase in flood damage. This is consistent with the results previously obtained [Kundzewicz et al., 2005; Bates et al., 2008; Petrow and Merz, 2009; Lins and Slack, 1999; Mudelsee et al., 2003] in different areas, such as North America, Europe, and Australia.

      and this one for starters’

      The Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society has just put online a review paper (peer reviewed) by Laurens Bouwer, of the Institute for Environmental Studies at Vrije Universiteit in Amsterdam, titled, “Have disaster losses increased due to anthropogenic climate change?”.

      Readers of this blog already know the answer to this question, and here is Bouwers’ conclusion:
      The analysis of twenty-two disaster loss studies shows that economic losses from various weather related natural hazards, such as storms, tropical cyclones, floods, and small-scale weather events such as wildfires and hailstorms, have increased around the globe. The studies show no trends in losses, corrected for changes (increases) in population and capital at risk, that could be attributed to anthropogenic climate change. Therefore it can be concluded that anthropogenic climate change so far has not had a significant impact on losses from natural disasters.

    • When convenient, the evidence is warming. When cooling, the evidence is “extreme weather.” What a bullshit religion.

      Climate change was predicted to bring more extreme weather events,

      It was warmer on earth 1000 years ago during the Medieval Warm Period than it is now. It was colder on earth 500 years ago during the Little Ice Age than it is now. Nothing “extreme” is happening on earth now. You are exaggerating.

  11. Sense Seeker says:

    So you don’t believe the meteorologists when they tell you the average temperatures, saying they don’t measure them right. But you do believe a single snapshot, and on that narrow basis reject the averages based on the same method?

    That’s called cherry picking. Disregard any evidence that doesn’t confirm your thesis. (“Readers of this blog already know the answer.” Right.)

    • thechuckr says:

      You failed to respond to any of my points. It seems to me that the only one “cherry-picking” is Hansen with his baseline period of 1950-1980 to exaggerate the temperature anomaly. I would also be interested in your take on the systematic reduction of average temperatures from the 1930’s and 1940’s and the retrospective increase of temperatures since the 1980’s by NASA/GISS. I guess thermometers worked differently back then.

      • Sense Seeker says:

        Okay, Chuck, here you go.

        Although temperatures increased overall during the 20th century, three distinct periods can be observed. Global warming occurred both at the beginning and at the end of the 20th century, but a cooling trend is seen from about 1940 to 1975. As a result, changes in 20th century trends offer a good framework through which to understand climate change and the role of numerous factors in determining the climate at any one time.

        Early and late 20th century warming has been explained primarily by increasing solar activity and increasing CO2 concentrations, respectively, with other factors contributing in both periods. So what caused the cooling period that interrupted the overall trend in the middle of the century? The answer seems to lie in solar dimming, a cooling phenomenon caused by airborne pollutants.

        The main culprit is likely to have been an increase in sulphate aerosols, which reflect incoming solar energy back into space and lead to cooling. This increase was the result of two sets of events.

        1. Industrial activities picked up following the Second World War. This, in the absence of pollution control measures, led to a rise in aerosols in the lower atmosphere (the troposphere).
        2. A number of volcanic eruptions released large amounts of aerosols in the upper atmosphere (the stratosphere).

        Combined, these events led to aerosols overwhelming the warming trend at a time when solar activity showed little variation, leading to the observed cooling. Furthermore, it is possible to draw similar conclusions by looking at the daily temperature cycle. Because sunlight affects the maximum day-time temperature, aerosols should have a noticeable cooling impact on it. Minimum night-time temperatures, on the other hand, are more affected by greenhouse gases and therefore should not be affected by aerosols. Were these differences observed? The answer is yes: maximum day-time temperatures fell during this period but minimum night-time temperatures carried on rising.

        The introduction of pollution control measures reduced the emission of sulphate aerosols. Gradually the cumulative effect of increasing greenhouse gases started to dominate in the 1970s and warming resumed.

        As a final point, it should be noted that in 1945, the way in which sea temperatures were measured changed, leading to a substantial drop in apparent temperatures. Once the data are corrected, it is expected that the cooling trend in the middle of the century will be less pronounced.

        From: http://www.skepticalscience.com/global-cooling-mid-20th-century.htm

        So you see, your cooling period has already been explained and all the relevant factors are included in the present climate models. Which, of course, predict warming.

        here some sense for you:

      • Sense Seeker

        You remind me of Tony Duncan. Are you him? Or, maybe you all just talk the same.

      • Sense Seeker says:

        What do you mean, Amino, when you say we all talk the same? You mean, backed up with evidence & all that?

        And Steve, my confirmation is at least backed up with peer-reviewed scientific evidence. I am yet to see the evidence for your views, which so far seems to consist of carefully-selected snaps shots of the whole body of evidence, qoutes from the Bible, holiday pics and what not.

        A number of volcanic eruptions released large amounts of aerosols in the upper atmosphere (the stratosphere).

        You say you use peer reviewed work for evidence. Would you list the peer reviewed works that are the basis for you claim about volcanoes.

      • Sense Seeker says:

        1. Industrial activities picked up following the Second World War.

        The price of stamps, and ice cream has gone up since the end of WW II. Stamps and ice cream cause global warming.

      You mean, backed up with evidence & all that?

      This response is just like I’ve read before. Are you using a new name today?

  12. thechuckr says:

    Sense, interesting history lesson but you still did explain the large discrepancy between GISS and satellite observations. Also, you did not prove nor justify your claim that climate change has caused “more extreme weather events,” whatever they might be.

  13. Mike Davis says:

    Nonsense Believer:
    Thank you for a repeat of the Fairy tale that has been produced to support the activities of the Chicken Little Brigade!
    You missed a few major points but your fantasy is alive and well in the minds of your fellow believers.

  14. Mike Davis says:

    Nonsense Believer also did not explain how recent weather history appear to follow natural patterns that are evident in all but the Chicken Little Brigade fabrications that have earned the shared tile Progeny of the Hockey Stick.
    Without proper Al-Gore-Rhythms being used on recent temperature records what you claim does not exist.

  15. Mike Davis says:

    NONSENSE Believer

    If a person wants to discuss climate science they should at least know the difference between a Meteorologist, A Climate Scientist, and a Climatologist.
    Using Meteorologist when talking about a group of Climatologists or Play Station Modelers. means you are just doing cut and paste to disrupt the conversation on this site!

    • “disrupt the conversation”

      He’s done that a few times. He brings up things out of the blue.

      • Mike Davis says:

        AAM:
        You might offend our guest by attaching a gender to an entity that came to visit. our entity used a non gender specific descriptor and that leaves us without a clue whether it is a S /HE/IT. To be polite and Politically Correct you should address the guest as it or a generic S,HE,IT!
        😉

      • He seems to have disappeared without answering any of my questions, except for linking to John Cook’s web site. John Cook is the 1 that started as the 700 that were going to unite to protest to Washington about global warming. Then the 700 became 39. Then the 39 became 1, John Cook.

        Other than that he didn’t answer any of my questions.

      • Mike Davis says:

        And you expected?
        You probably hurt S,HE,IT’s feelings! 😉

    came canned responses

    with no relation to reality.
