Climate Experts Say That Recent Temperature Changes Are Unprecedented

What they mean by “unprecedented” is “completely in the noise of natural variability.”

    Bishop Hill had a great post on this very issue. An apparent slam dunk on the “unprecedented” scam: http://bishophill.squarespace.com/blog/2013/5/27/met-office-admits-claims-of-significant-temperature-rise-unt.html

    The graph above strongly resembles the mating call of the Blue Footed Booby!

    anyone that looks at that….and is afraid of warming…..is a moron

    You see this one? Canadian Scientist Regenerate Long Frozen Arctic Plants

    “Catherine La Farge and colleagues inventoried bryophytes-nonvascular plants such as mosses and liverworts-uncovered by the retreat of the Teardrop Glacier on Ellesmere Island in the Canadian Arctic Archipelago. When the authors examined the bryophytes they found that the plants’ structure was well preserved by the glacier. Some of the plants showed signs of regrowth, including green lateral branches or stems, even among plants uncovered less than a year earlier. The authors used radiocarbon dating to confirm that the exhumed bryophytes were entombed during the Little Ice Age (1550-1850 AD). The authors then took fragments of the plants, cultured them in the laboratory, and tested their capacity to regrow. The authors grew 11 cultures from seven specimens, representing four distinct taxa. These results suggest that bryophytes, representing the earliest lineages of land plants, may be far more resilient than previously thought, and likely contribute to the establishment, colonization, and maintenance of polar ecosystems.”

    What she doesn’t say is that there was a medieval warm period on Ellesmere Island. Warmer than today. Warm enough that 4 different types of moss immigrated and colonised under what is now a glacier in a high Arctic mountain pass.

    Thank-you Steve that puts the last 20, 30 60, or 100 years of temperature changes into perspective.

    Why in the past when the cold was ‘extreem’ it didn’t stay cold or got colder and why when it was ‘extreem’ warm it didn’t get hotter? And don’t forget that what we call hot in the history of the Earth is cold.

    The more i look at that graph, the more i think we are lucky in this day and age to have a “climate” as warm and generous as it is right now….

  8. The EPICA “Dome C” ice cores show four more glaciation cycles. “Climate Scientists” now admit that these CO2 variations were driven by temperature changes. In a pathetic attempt to salvage something from the debacle, Jeff Severinghaus claims that CO2 provided “Amplification”:

    I have a little fun at Jeff’s discomfiture here:

    And an interesting paper from Canada puts the cause of the majority of recent warming down to CFCs releases.
