State Of The Climate Report

The IPCC says the world is burning up

The real world says differently.

  • No global warming for over 17 years
  • Global sea ice area is near an all-time record high for mid-April
  • Great Lakes ice cover is the highest on record for mid-April
  • Antarctic sea ice area is the highest on record for mid-April
  • Arctic multi-year ice way up over the last three years
  • Record low tornado activity in the US since the start of 2012
  • Near record low hurricane activity in the US over the past five years
  • No major hurricanes in the US for almost nine years – a record
  • No hurricanes in Florida for almost nine years – a record
  • Last year was the quietest Atlantic hurricane season in decades
  • Coldest four months on record in much of the midwest

    I would add:

    No trend change in old, single site, very old real thermometer records.

    No trend change in most any old worldwide tide gauge record.

    In related Big Government news:

    “Two days before Lerner was forced to publicly disclose the scandal, she was moving forward with an insidious plan to stamp out conservatives and Tea Party activists’ ability to organize and raise money, by working with the IRS commissioner’s office and the Department of Justice. At the same time, there was no plan for any government crackdown on groups who agreed with President Obama. The traffic was entirely one-way. It was nakedly political, and everyone involved knew it. They also had reason to believe that they would succeed, or they would not have engaged in it. DOJ would serve two roles: Prosecute conservatives, and protect the bureaucrats who were pushing those prosecutions.”

    • Eric Simpson says:

      Hey Nik, good great additions, but what happened to your Clockwork Orange eye icon??

      Also, I wonder with your libertarian leanings whether you would at this point like Ted Cruz as the candidate of choice? In the video below, he says we should flat out get rid of the IRS. See this inspiring Cruz video before making up your mind:

      And if you want to say what you think of the video, feel free!

      Also, Ted Cruz to CNN: Global warming not supported by data, with a video at the link: http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2014/02/20/cruz-to-cnn-global-warming-not-supported-by-data/

      • -=NikFromNYC=- says:

        I switched to a new account that hasn’t been somehow permanently rationed to a single post in a day, but the avatar image won’t successfully submit so far.

        I have myself cheered Cruz’s small government clarity of vision and quite seasoned skepticism. However I also live in one of the centers of liberalism, not just NYC but the Upper West Side and strongly note that single urban females who influence single men in turn too, treat the banning of abortion exactly as small town or rural folks treat bans on guns, so in a quite practical sense I’m not convinced that many more outspoken abortion banners can be realistically elected. It’s odd too since the Bible upon which such bans are said to be based does not consider abortion to be murder, and it’s not even mentioned in the New Testament that converted Judaism to Christianity.

        A youthful backlash against both old school Puritanism and new school progressivism does point to future Tea Party wins, I imagine, especially as the Global Warming scam is further exposed on top of the Obamacare deception. It’s still odd though how much intellectual inertia there still is amongst urban hip professionals and techies against simply adding climate alarmism to their list of activist grievances. Facts don’t seem to do the trick, at least online. For awhile being skeptical in person was edgy and bad ass, but once Fox News got on board, the liberal arts indoctrination of college graduates kicked in and only a few so far seem to be willing to even discuss the issue instead of immediately snubbing you as a person.

        The Tea Party threat to end the Drug War is one major advantage in getting urban young and old adults alike to take a Republican seriously however, now that the urban vote dominates national elections. It’s odd though that Republicans are now nearly self-defeating as they call for the immigration of millions of New Democrats from fascist South America. I guess Facebook wants cheaper labor and their employees want cheaper nannies, so they’ll get them? It’s also a problem that the Tea Party is being attacked by Republicans so consistently.

        I keep thinking that there’s a majority of everyday practical people who would be happy to vote for the combination of socially liberal and small government conservative in candidates, but all they are ever offered are small government abortion banners who want to teach the Bible in biology classes in school. I also think however that progressivism will suffer such a big backlash over the next decade exactly due to its full investment in climate alarm that it will be destroyed.

        • Gail Combs says:

          I agree with you Nik.

          Drop the abortion issue. It is dead, dead, dead, and has been for decades. Heck, my Grandmother, born in the 1880s was FOR abortion as were my Mom and Dad. (Dad studied to be a Lutheran minister.) People forget abortion became legal because of all the botched back alley abortions that killed young women.

          Same goes for teaching religion/creationism in school. Do it in church.

          Neither of those genies are every going to get stuffed back into the bottle and they are only an issue for a smaller and smaller number of conservatives. That is why the Republicans are losing voters to the ‘independents’

          The other problem is there is no real difference between the Republicans and the Democrats. BOTH parties are advancing the agenda of the elite – fascism, neo-corporatism, ‘The Third Way’ That is why the Republicans have to use abortion and Christianity to distinguish themselves from the Democrats. If they didn’t beat those dead horses people would see they are no different than the Democrats. (Think Romneycare in MA.) Just as in the UK there are no parties that actually represent the average joe.

          I just hope the Tea Party can overthrow the Republican leadership and revamp the party into something useful. Of course that is why the top Republican leadership is fighting the Tea Party tooth and nail.

        • Greg Locke says:

          I agree with much of what you and Ms. Gail say, Mr. Nik, but i don’t think “dropping the abortion issue” is possible for many people of good.will. It is, for them, a matter of life and death. They, correctly so I think, consider abortion the murder of a human being and no amount of philosophical wrangling will change that. And, they are unwilling recognize a legal loophole that creates an exception to the commandment, “Thou Shall Not Kill.” The abortion issue will always be with us.

        • Eric Simpson says:

          Thanks Nik for your detailed reply! And Gail! You make a lot of great points on different issues. Despite my fondness for Cruz, yeah I have reservations, and another one is that I do like the idea of scrapping the IRS as Cruz says he wants to do and the electorate may actually go for that under the right circumstances, but I’m thinking a totally flat tax just won’t fly as it will be attacked as benefiting mostly the rich, yet you could nix the IRS but still maintain a progressive tax like with rates of 14% 23% 32%, with an absolute maximum rate of 50% for all taxes (including state & local).

        • Eric Simpson says:

          Also Greg I wanted to thank you for your word on abortion. My caveat is that that is an extremely divisive issue that causes Republicans to tear into each other. The issue certainly turns climate skeptics against each other. I’ve seen it here, when that issue arises, as it has arisen right now, and so I am reluctant to comment on it. I mean, I’ve seen it here, skeptics that are normally a jolly unified group break into bitter acrimony on that issue, with the use of profanities against each other that you don’t see on normal TV. Anyway, there are many Republicans that don’t have the fervor or aren’t that religious but have nevertheless made accommodation for the abortion issue, accepting it as part of the plank, but hope only that issue does a minimum of electoral damage to our side. All I ask is that we avoid the extreme position of no exceptions for rape and incest. Polls show that 80% of the electorate does not accept that position, and most are repulsed by it. I’m hoping that that is not Cruz’s position, because he would be Cruzified by it. Lol (not).

        • Gail Combs says:

          Greg Locke,
          I am not trying to dictate what people should think but at this point in history abortion is not only a dead issue it is a lead anchor that will sink an otherwise electable candidate. So anyone planning to run in national politics should avoid the issue like the plague it is. Side step it, bring up a more important issue, duck swivel and run from it, but DON’T express your views.

          Just a quick look at the internet shows “Less than 20% of Americans regularly attend church” and Gallup shows ~40%. Of those only a portion will be anti-abortion, so like I said it is a really bad issue to have front and center. Gallup also shows rabid anti-abortionists are 20% or less of the population. And pro-choice vs pro-life are evenly divided at ~ 45%. It really is a miserable issue to base a campaign on from a pragmatic position.

          After all what is more important. the abortion issue or whether the politicians in DC will continue giving control of the USA to the UN piecemeal?

          Make no mistake that is what is happening. Slowly we are losing control of our entire country. For example the Food Safety Act, passed during the lame duck session with my traitorous republican senator as co-sponsor handed control of farm regulations over to the WTO. (The WTO is run by the Ag cartel when it comes to food.)

          SEC. 404. COMPLIANCE WITH INTERNATIONAL AGREEMENTS.
          Nothing in this Act (or an amendment made by this Act) shall be construed in a manner inconsistent with the agreement establishing the World Trade Organization or any other treaty or international agreement to which the United States is a party.

          This is significant because Clinton got the WTO passed in Congress by making the USA free of rule by the WTO. My traitorous republican senator, Richard Burr rescinded that so farmers now must comply with an international organization run by corporations..
          See: east law – WTO for what was originally done.

          Then later Bush jr. signed an agreement promising to “harmonize” US regs with EU regs.

          This is an example:

          The International Conference on Harmonisation was formed for the purpose implied in its name and is sponsored by one major government body and one industry association from each of the three regions represented. These six organizations are the European Commission; European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries Associations; Japanese Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare; Japanese Pharmaceutical Manufacturers Association; FDA (CDER and CBER); and the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America. In addition to these sponsors, the ICH Steering Committee includes the International Federation of Pharmaceutical Manufacturers Associations (IFPMA) and observers from the World Health Organization, Health Canada’s Health Products and Food Branch and the European Free Trade Area.44 ICH has been successful in producing a considerable number of harmonized guidances for the documentation of drug safety, efficacy and quality (i.e., CMCs) for submission in registration applications. These are available on the CDER guidance page of the FDA web- site at http://www.fda.gov/cder/guidance/index.htm and the ICH website at http://www.ich.org. http://www.tianodesign.com/pdfs_pdf%20images/fin.05_fund_us_reg_aff.pdf

          So tell me where is the representation for you and me? It is now government of the corporations, by the corporations, for the corporations. People are nothing but interchangable cogs to be tossed on the trash heap after their usefulness is done.

        • philjourdan says:

          @Gail – Abortion was not illegal prior to Roe v. Wade. Should something cause SCOTUS to over turn that decision, it will not be made universally illegal.

          Abortion will not go away. To some it is murder.

        • Gail Combs says:

          philjourdan,
          I am well aware that Abortion is a hot issue for some (20% of the US population) how ever it is being used to divert attention from the core problem, the takeover of the USA by the globalists.

          Make a decision. Do you want all USA laws developed and handed to us by the bureaucrats in the UN (The current situation) and keep the discussion about Abortion going in each election? Or do you want to take this country out of the hands of Foreigners?

        • philjourdan says:

          @Gail – I do not see it as a distraction. But neither do I see it as “the single issue”. However our surrender to the totalitarians of the UN is being done by both parties. One is just doing it faster.

          I do not ask a Tea Party Candidate their opinion on Abortion. I do not care (the issue is a legal one now). Until we can actually have a choice (Romney/McCain were just a slow lane route to the same end as Obama), I do not see that it makes much of a difference.

        • philjourdan says:

          As a side bar, perhaps the issue should be getting more attention – http://genfringe.com/2014/04/birth-abortion-yes-read-right/

        • Gail Combs says:

          Unfortunately Phil, I agree.

          My point was abortion as the big issue of the republicans is used to hide the fact there is little difference between them and the democrats.

          As this article says the democrat and republican politicians have more in common with each other then they have with the rest of us. They have managed to become our ‘Aristocracy’

        • philjourdan says:

          @Gail

          abortion as the big issue of the republicans is used to hide the fact there is little difference between them and the democrats.

          I had not thought of that. I will have to research that more. And if true, it is as bad a use as the democrat use of it.

          However, for clarification, I think you mean the leadership, not the rank and file. And remember Bob Casey.

          As far as the article, sometimes I think I could have written it. In our formerly classless society, we do have classes now. Ruling and the rest.

      • -=NikFromNYC=- says:

        Greg: On abortion bans from on high (D.C.), functional irony again kicks in, so if you really from afar blanket ban abortion you then stop killing 70 odd percent of black babies who are defacto Democrats. It used to be that missionaries relied on huddled masses to promote their variously sized pre-Hollywood multimedia cathedrals, but now it’s just all white flight progressive Marxism, growing and throbbing in D.C. and once great Middle American cities as rap-inspired little negros literally shoot up the town. The biggest hope for America is that naturally very high IQ Asians are now amongst the first ambitious immigrants to shout out against ghetto tyranny from afar, especially the blunt racism of college admissions that destroys Asiatic Anerican lives in their prime. Gang banger Hispanics around LA started it, though, by shooting back at ghetto bangers and their hoodrat bitches, with real bullets.

    • Jon says:

      Socialist Norway is giving the Nobel Peace Prize only to other socialists or people with ideas that promote socialism.
      It’s quite crystal clear to me that Obama and his team is on a mission that is more important than democracy and freedom in USA?
      International Socialism(Marxism)?

      • Jon says:

        Having IRS function almost as KGB in the USSR sounds radical crazy. I think the biggest problem is that the main media in USA is on the same gravey train?
        Fix the media first?

        • Gail Combs says:

          Can’t fix the media. J.P. Morgan and his friends bought the US media in 1915. See my comment for details on the takeover of the MSM.

    ..and if you’re in Oklahoma and want to “do your part” for CAGW, you’ll pay extra:

  3. Andy Oz says:

    But Seth Borenstein says that the globe is on FIRE!! We are all doomed!!!
    http://www.athensnews.com/ohio/article-42209-reporter-climate-cha.html
    150,000 die from climate change every year he said. Considering global population growth is about 60 million per annum, and many millions die annually from malaria, starvation, dirty water, lack of medicine, and car accidents, I think we should cut all funding to fantasy Climate Research and give money to solve these other real global problems. Alarmists are Malaria deniers if they object.

  4. tom0mason says:

    Here’s a list of a few more things that advocates of CAGW have worried the world about –
    http://www.numberwatch.co.uk/warmlist.htm

    The grant trough has been so generous to some.

  5. The Griss says:

    I think one thing that needs to be realised..

    Extra CO2 in the atmosphere INCREASES radiative energy transfer.

    This means that other energy transfer mechanisms that the Earth uses to “balance” itself (which is the ultimate aim of ALL energy, but never possible because of the Earth’s tilt and rotation) MUST be reduced.

    This accounts for the measured (not modelled) REDUCTION in ALL extremes events in the climate

    • Morgan says:

      Yes, because of the fact that CO2 in the lower atmosphere is already saturated in terms of absorbing IR from the surface:

      but at the top of the atmosphere, where CO2 radiates atmospheric heat to space, there is no limit in how much added CO2 will increase radiation. So, from here on in, adding CO2 to the atmosphere will cool the earth.

  6. Eric Simpson says:

    A bad article, but with great skeptic comments is: http://www.bloombergview.com/articles/2014-04-14/how-to-reset-the-climate-change-debate

    Like this comment by Mark Jordan:

    In trying to explain the lack of warming for 17+ years, warmists claim it went into the deep blue sea. Warmer water should equal expanding sea levels … or at least that’s what the warmists tell us. Trouble is, sea isn’t cooperating. It isn’t even rising at the rate warmists claimed without this new hiding place for heat.

    Meanwhile carbon in the atmosphere reaches record level … with no corresponding temperature rise.

    And so now we see warmists like this writer trying to ratchet down the rhetoric, appear reasonable. This tactic won’t work either.

    The debate is settled and the warmists have lost.

    • Gail Combs says:

      WOW, what great comments I read them all and hardly any of the 255 comments were by Warmists.

      There was one Warmist comment using Ad-hom + straw-man that got call out immediately.

      A Second who spouted the non-science about the “certainty” of the cause of “precise effects on weather, sea levels, incidence of disease and drought, species diversity, ocean acidification”

      Another spouting on about the heat hiding in the oceans.

      The classic though was the real fool who steps in the deep doo-doo. First he was spouting blockquote>Sure, these horrible leftists and environmentalists are out there to “threaten people with tattooed foreheads and concentration camps”… seriously, have you lost any sense of decency? Is that your vision of a constructuve democratic debate …
      and then when backed into a corner comes back with

      …it would apply to people who set up enterprises (fake NOGs and think-tanks) aimed at purposefully and deliberately disinforming the public… That’s what we have in mind, it’s criminal, and on moral grounds, yes, it should be punished…. it is similar to false advertising, which is a breach of the law, and deserrves punishment. And if it bears consequences on public health, the punishment would likely be harsher….

      (I had a bit of fun with that comment -couldn’t resist good for the goose and good for the gander)

      And a few others generally by the same guy who wrote the above.

      This beautiful summing up really tickled my funny bone:

      …The bottom line? This science is not settled. The IPCC data is not peer-reviewed and the fix is in the “models.” And if the polar bears do any better, Alaskans are in REAL trouble!!

      • Eric Simpson says:

        Of course we have this quote:
        “It’s time for climate change deniers to have their opinions forcibly tattooed on their bodies. Not necessarily on the forehead; I’m a reasonable man. Just something along their arm or across their chest.” -leftist Richard Glover, Sydney Morning Herald, June 6 2011
        And this:
        “I’m prepared to keep an open mind and propose another stunt for climate sceptics [be exposed] to high concentrations of either carbon dioxide or some other colourless, odourless gas – say, carbon monoxide.” -Jill Singer, Australian Ecojournalist
        And much more…

  7. Nobody cares ’bout global warming ‘cuz Windows Vista on the other side!

  8. oeman50 says:

    Steve, all of those facts about the real world just prove the point: If Mann-caused worldwide climate disruption were not occurring, you would not be having those anomalous situations. And just because we are not seeing some of this bad climate does not mean it is not happening somewhere else, like on Mars. And I saw hurricanes on Venus with my x-ray glasses. Yes, that’s were they went. Maybe the tornadoes, too, but my x-ray glasses don’t have the resolution to see tornadoes.

  9. James the Elder says:

    “The other problem is there is no real difference between the Republicans and the Democrats.”

    On the contrary; democrats stab you in the chest.

  10. Shazaam says:

    I wish I could find online copies of the “Futurist” magazine……

    I subscribed to that one in the late 70s early 80’s . Their “predictions” of the global cooling disaster were quoted in many a newspaper.

    They were famous for their “worst case”, “likely case” and “best case” scenarios. None of which remotely matched reality. And they’ve carefully scrubbed all evidence of their scare-mongering from the planet. I wish I hadn’t tossed that stuff. Because it could really, really embarrass the current batch of fear-mongerers….
