1910 – The Year The Climate Went Crazy

According to little Mikey, the climate suddenly went nuts in the year 1910.

It isn’t clear what might have caused Mr. Climate to have a nervous breakdown then, because CO2 was hardly rising around that time.

So I spent the last 30 seconds researching the history of that year, and discovered that 1910 was the summer when the first night game was played at White Sox Park. The lights apparently made Gaia feel very romantic, and the rest is history.

    I wonder if idiots like Mann know that the reason tree rings are growing faster lately is because of the CO2, not because of heat. Using tree rings as a proxy of global temperatures is the stupidest thing I know of. And I know of a lot of stupid things.

    • B says:

      I think that tree ring width is more based on the length of the growing season than CO2 levels. Growing season length gives a decent idea if it was warmer or colder.

      • Plants don’t grow when it’s dry. That’s why you seldom cut your lawn in winter. There won’t be much growth in a dry growing season, so precipitation is probably more important than some variation of a tiny fraction of 1C.

      • Gail Combs says:

        Tree rings are influenced by CO2 and H2O and fertilizer and the temperature WINDOW. If it is too hot they quit growing if it is too cold they quit growing. However the other factors CONFOUND measurements of growth rings.

        It is interesting to note this is the second summer of the 20 plus years I have owned my farm that the white clover has not died back by June. Last year we had no “drought” but this year we did with some of the grasses drying out and still the white clover is blooming instead of burnt to a crispy brown. It is also the second year my bucks (male billy goats) have come into smelly rut in June. Buck goats are like buck deer and rut in August and September not June and July. This last year I had kids in early November and then again in July. High temps make them sterile.

        ….As with ewes and does, fertility in rams and bucks is also affected by temperature and humidity. Heat stress created by environmental conditions or fever caused by diseases that significantly elevate body temperature for an extended time can interfere with sperm production and development, thus affecting semen quality. The fertility of
        rams and bucks can be affected within days of exposure to extreme heat, and it can take at least 6 to 10 weeks before sperm quality returns to normal…..

        ….Estrus, or heat, is the period of time when the female is sexually receptive to the ram or buck. Sheep and goats are seasonally polyestrous and short-day breeders, meaning
        they will cycle regularly starting with the shortening days of fall. The most natural time for sheep to breed in Alabama is from August through December. For goats, the most natural time is usually from late July through December….

        To get November kids my Bucks and Does were coming into season in early June the longest days of the year in MID North Carolina…..

      • Morgan says:

        Nonsense. Plant growth explodes when you raise CO2. Mikey Pildown Mann’s whole hockey puck is due to tree growth rate due to CO2 but he’s such a moron he doesn’t know his arse

      • There Is No Substitute for Victory. says:

        Sarcasm on:
        Yea, the reason indoor dope growers pipe CO2 into their growing rooms is to create a longer growing season.
        :Sarcasm off.

        There are more important drivers of tree ring growth other than temperature. A longer growing season doesn’t automatically make wider tree rings, only an overall weather pattern that is more beneficial to the growth of the tree than the previous year’s pattern can accomplish that. Rain water or the distribution of precipitation through out the growing season is the most important factor affecting tree ring growth. I have never seen the length of the growing season accurately determined by tree ring growth, only the presence or absence of a drought has much effect.

  2. Steve Case says:

    Temperature, precipitation and CO2 all affect growth, so it boggles the mind as to how the signal from warmer temperatures can be distilled from the tree ring data.

    • Jason Calley says:

      Hey Steve! Yes, and affected by whether a bear defecated next to the tree, and whether the tree next to it died and let in more sunshine, and whether a stream bank collapsed and slightly changed the near surface flow of drainage water, and a snowdrift nearby melted earlier in the spring than usual, and whether a rock slide uphill damaged one side of the tree bark, — and — and —

      As you say, it boggles the mind. And yet, “the science is settled!”

    • If atolls disappeared due to sea level rise, they would have disappeared 20 thousand years so, because seas have been steadily rising since then.

      • Gail Combs says:

        Actually that is not quite true. The Holocene Sea Level Highstand was thousands of years ago. The Holocene sealevel Highstand was ~ 1.5 meter above todays sea-level 6,000 years ago in geologically stable South Vietnam. Sea level has been DECREASING in fits and starts ever since then.

        Abstract

        Beachrocks, beach ridge, washover and backshore deposits along the tectonically stable south-eastern Vietnamese coast document Holocene sea level changes. In combination with data from the final marine flooding phase of the incised Mekong River valley, the sea-level history of South Vietnam could be reconstructed for the last 8000 years. Connecting saltmarsh, mangrove and beachrock deposits the record covers the last phase of deglacial sea-level rise from − 5 to + 1.4 m between 8.1 to 6.4 ka. The rates of sea-level rise decreased sharply after the rapid early Holocene rise and stabilized at a rate of 4.5 mm/year between 8.0 and 6.9 ka. Southeast Vietnam beachrocks reveal that the mid-Holocene sea-level highstand slightly above + 1.4 m was reached between 6.7 and 5.0 ka, with a peak value close to + 1.5 m around 6.0 ka….

        CONCLUSION
        We have constructed a new Holocene sea-level curve for Oahu showing mean sea level higher than today between ~5000 and ~2000 yr ago with a maximum ~2 m above present ca. 3500 yr ago….

        This ties in with glacier growth.

        …. Solar energy reached a summer maximum (9% higher than at present) ~11 ka ago and has been decreasing since then, primarily in response to the precession of the equinoxes. The extra energy elevated early Holocene summer temperatures throughout the Arctic 1-3°C above 20th century averages, enough to completely melt many small glaciers throughout the Arctic, although the Greenland Ice Sheet was only slightly smaller than at present. Early Holocene summer sea ice limits were substantially smaller than their 20th century average, and the flow of Atlantic water into the Arctic Ocean was substantially greater. As summer solar energy decreased in the second half of the Holocene, glaciers re-established or advanced, sea ice expanded

        ABSTRACT
        “…We explore the possibility of building a continuous glacier reconstruction by analyzing the integrated sedimentary response of a large (440 km2) glacierized catchment in western Norway, as recorded in the downstream lake Nerfloen (N61°56’, E6°52’). A multi-proxy numerical analysis demonstrates that it is possible to distinguish a glacier component in the ~ 8000-yr-long record, based on distinct changes in grain size, geochemistry, and magnetic composition…. Minimum glacier input is indicated between 6700–5700 cal yr BP, probably reflecting a situation when most glaciers in the catchment had melted away, whereas the highest glacier activity is observed around 600 and 200 cal yr BP. During the local Neoglacial interval (~ 4200 cal yr BP until present), five individual periods of significantly reduced glacier extent are identified at ~ 3400, 3000–2700, 2100–2000, 1700–1500, and ~ 900 cal yr BP….”

        Everything the Climastrologists say seems to be an out right lie doesn’t it?

  3. What’s more interesting is that half the proxy temperature ruse is prior to 1950, which according to the IPCC, CO2 couldn’t have had a measurable effect on temperatures. So his graph actually strongly rules out CO2, if looked at logically.

    • emsnews says:

      Except the graph is totally bogus due to ‘cooling’ the past via computer ‘adjustments’. Using it to learn something is insane and futile.
