Can I have a million dollar grant to figure it out? I promise results, and a consensus, for double that.
Give me a piece of that consensus…
Thinking small, eh? I mean, let’s be honest: by the time you’ve had a few hundred “massages” & carefully sampled, tested, & compared a couple of pounds of Peruvian Marching Powder, you’re trying to make do on less than $100K/yr. Barely enough to cover Sandra Fluke’s condoms for a month.
Is it the one that looks like a dead fly on my screen – wait! It is a dead fly!
I don’t thinks so. Flies are too big.
I bet it’s one of these:
Regarding our comments on Atlantic current slowing down, another Steve at Climate audit shows that it is much worse that that.
The duo actually use the same discredited proxies that are in the hockey stick to try to prove their point. Absolutely absurd!!!!!
Mann must need some money for his trial which I do not think is going well.
I would like to see him on a street corner with a cup in his hand.
He is as much of a narcissistic child as our prez. They’re actions show that neither has a concern for the citizens of the U.S. or the world. Well, maybe with the exception of Iran.
and well …..maybe Russia.
I recommend the latest Climate Audit thread for all readers.
They let the Chicoms off too… It’s not about race… it’s just about being Anti-American.
You are right, Darryl, everyone should read that. The reserved Canadian reaches into the German/Yiddish vocabulary to describe the Rahmstorf /Mann paper and after a couple of devastating paragraphs ends with:
Fore me, there is only one question left: How low will they go?
No, there is one more: How can anyone with a functioning brain still defend such drek?
So that’s what a right red uptick looks like. 😀
Are you sure? From the looks of it, it might be a downtick.
I just read yours after posting mine. Similar sense of humour I reckon.
Maybe I should change my handle to Irish Skeptic.
Plz cancel my subscription – there are way too many emailed posts to me.
well, the problem is those results are from actual data and not properly calibrated with the satellite record, which can be used to properly fill in the past 2500 years of drought estimation by extrapolating the rate of drought from the past 5 years of records.
It must be the post-1492 blip where Europeans took what was a pristine desert wonderland and turned it into a thin, rotten wetland. I would wager that 97% of scientists who are also members of La Raza agree with this interpretation.
Drought is not climate. Drought is weather. Desert is climate. California is a desert, and you can’t have a drought in a desert.
I just wish some smart person had taken the time to figure out how to move water from one location to another. Perhaps humans will evolve into ultra-powerful wizards who can create water from tubes made of concrete & steel within the next billion years or so. *crosses fingers*
Mickey Mann and Ramshead will just tell you that the water will stop flowing in the right direction due to global warming anyway, so why bother? 🙂
At the current (earlier today) rates of flow of the Mississippi River at Memphis, it would take less than 120 hours of Mississippi flow to fill the top 15 or so major reservoirs in California to max capacity. Amazing what 1.2 million cubic feet per second can do…
Yeah, move water across the San Andreas fault line…until it fails. This is how the Salton Sea was created when an earthquake caused LA water to end up there instead.
Well, technically most of the CA reservoirs are east of the San Andreas–BUT to your point, there are plenty of other faultlines and obstacles with which to contend. (“And whose fault is that, Andreas? I blame you and your SUV…” 😉 ) I was just commenting on the massive gap between supply in one place and demand in another.
Very interesting history of the Salton Sea (which is as you said right on the San Andreas) http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Salton_Sea
So, all the Colorado River water sucked down by southern California is not from Arizona’s Hoover Dam??? Wow.
Could have fooled me and I was raised out there. 🙂
Emsnews–?? I have no idea what your point is or why you seem to be seeking conflict. I am talking about storage, not the great Colorado River. I an not talking consumption, but merely stating that the major RESERVOIRS in Calif could be filled in 120 hrs of Mississippi flow. I am not talking irrigation by the flowing Colorado, which is obviously a lifesaver for SoCal and more. Think Lake Shasta; San Pedro Reservoir; Lake Oroville; all the reservoirs east of the San Andreas Fault. I don’t see any disagreement warranted!
Apologies emsnews–I see where the disconnect was. You are exactly right, a ton of CA’s ‘storage’ comes from the Colorado, as you mentioned and in the way you described. I was only talking about the reservoirs wholly within California’s borders. Sorry for the misunderstanding. Now I’m going back to praying for rain… 🙂
It looks like Californians have been DARN LUCKY for the past ~ 200 years.
If you look at the trend of the long term curve the Southwest is getting wetter. What does that mean?
My guess… those Christian Crusades made it too dry and is responsible for the last peak in the Medieval Megadrought. Those evil, Bible clinging Jesus lovers are not only terrorists they changed the climate. I know that’s right ’cause Dear Leader Barak the Oneth said that violent sword and gun totin’ Christians hating on peaceful Muslims is why Global Climate Boo-Boos keep it from raining in the deserts… and the rest of it’s ’cause of the Jews, that grandstanding Netanyahu guy and I think Sarah Palin’s still involved somehow ’cause of all the snow this year. You can’t trust them Alaskans when it comes to heat.
Do I win a prize? I mean, I get a “Participation Award” don’t I?
You get to go up to Alaska and work with Sarah Palin, feeding all the starving polar bears, because the arctic ice is all melted. [ask Big Al Gore]
Yes, Niel, you get 3 Participation Awards, one each for Christian Crusaders, the Jews and Sarah Palin.
You also won a trip to the 2015 Climate Change Summer Camp hosted this year either in Ramallah or Beirut and organized by the Heinrich-Böll-Stiftung Foundation (HBS).
The focus of the 2015 camp is on Gender-Responsive Climate Change Adaptation.

Congratulations again, Niel, but you didn’t get the correct answer. The climate was cooled by Genghis Khan:
My SUV caused the drought between 1200 – 1300. How about yours?
It was the Viking invasions that caused today’s droughts in California.
“My SUV caused the drought between 1200 – 1300. How about yours?”
Mine is saving mankind. If it were not for my SUV we would be in a full on ice age with famine, death, and starvation. Please send more money for my fuel bills.
My SUV usually causes floods. It only causes droughts when I shift into reverse.
All the water was hiding in either the pine cones or the depths of the volcanoes while the heat has hiding in the ocean.
Is it the one which looks bigger than it really is because there is a spot of tomato sauce on my screen from when I sneezed while eating pizza last night?
Fig. 3. Comparison of the tuned-chronology Castor Lake grayscale record
with tree-ring reconstructions of the PDSI and PDO. Grayscale record (black
line) compared to (A) PDSI grid point #43 reconstruction by Cook et al. (9)
with y-axis reversed, such that increasing aridity is shown as upward
trends (orange) (B) McDonald and Case (19) PDO reconstruction (green),
(C) Gedalof and Smith (17) PDO reconstruction (blue). All data were 20-yr
low-pass filtered to improve visualization (SI Materials and Methods).
(D) The contrasting hydroclimate of the Pacific NW with the desert Southwest
is illustrated by the map generated from the correlation of grid point
#43 in the PNW with other grid points from the tree-ring-based reconstruction
of the PDSI (9), which shows opposite patterns of aridity in the two
regions based on data for the period between 1645–1900 A.D. Locations
of field sites for North American PDO reconstructions are indicated (see
map legend), as well as PDSI grid points, and the location of Castor Lake.

Mid – 500’s show a spike in drought. Is that the reason they thought hiding on a swamp island would be good place to build a city?
When the Lombards invade Italy, in 568, one of the first cities in their path is Aquileia – a Christian town of long-standing importance, traditionally held to have been founded by St Mark. Many of its inhabitants, alarmed at the prospects of life under the rule of Germanic tribesmen, opt for the uncertain status of refugees. Fleeing southwards, some seek safety on a low-lying offshore island – probably occupied at the time only by a fishing community.
The island is Torcello. And the refugees, seen with the hindsight of history, are the founders of Venice.

Unfair – I was not born in 1850 to help make CALIFONNIA a state – so what other blips are there?
I actually preferred your first spelling.. where could be FONNIA.. 😉
I’m going to guess the time with the largest drought in the last 500+ years. Just a guess.
The satellites measuring the troposphere have detected no rainfall this year at those altitudes.
Obviously I’m joking, but I do wonder how long before someone starts to have to look at things like that
Has Governor Moonbeam seen this graph?
Has his head exploded?
If not then he hasn’t seen the graph.
Has his head exploded? How could we tell?
When I was growing up, it was the last blue one on the right.

That is weird. Sometimes when I post a link, the image shows up, and other times it is just the link.

Test with the link on its own line.
interesting graphic Steve, I’m thirsty for more.
On the blip spotting front, I’ll have to ask those boys down at the Exeter super-computer centre if they can spare me some time to use their monster, I’ll apply to the EU for some funding and tell them I can solve the water crisis in the UK………oops – the Met Office told us – more big stormy wet wetty…………….. sorry to rain on your parade boys – guess it’s back to the dryas.
Give me the money – now!
“Climate experts are 99% certain that one of the blips in this graph is your fault. Can you spot which one?”
Too easy. The blip that is mankind’s fault is the one that brings in the most grant money, gets the most speaker’s fees, and brings in the most invitations to conferences in exotic places.
Wait, I can just barely see the size of a climate scientist’s manhood in the anthropogenic part of that chart.
Somehow, without reservoirs and year-round streamflow control, animals and plants survived much worse periods. Maybe today despite these things today.
Reader quiz! What is the least friendly city? Three guesses and the first two don’t count…
I will never go back. Sucks to be a Big Crapple inmate.
Congrats Gavin! 😆
Ya, the wee red uptick at the far right, which is obviously somehow much more ominouser than it looks. ):p
