Scientists Weren’t Always This Stupid

In 1934, there was “climate disruption” and drought across the planet.

Instead of blaming humans like the current crop of brainless climate scientists do, scientists at the time blamed variations in solar activity.


08 Sep 1934 – Abnormal Weather. WORLD-WIDE DISLOCATION.

  1. “Scientist” used to mean what we now call “sceptic” – people who base their views on the evidence. These days Universities are so full of politically correct non-science that you really can’t liken modern “scientists” to the real scientists of old.

    ‘Solar Variation’ What a Novel idea!! 🙂

    Todays ‘scientists’ are the witch doctor, rain dancers of the past. Lull the dim-witted people to sleep with their impressive dance diversions.

    I know a few scientific scientist, they are not all one monolithic entity at all.

    this news from that day in 1934 should worry you/all of us:
    according to about 6 calculations of mine, using different parameters and [my own] data sets,
    we are now in ca.1928…,
    with the sun now at its brightest in about 87 years

    that means in ca. 6 years from now the world will be heading for major droughts on all continents, as it was in those days, e.g. the dust bowl drought, 1932-1939

    I strongly agree that oceans and the sun are the two forces that influence/make climate, but, on the other hand, I also believe that human activities on the oceans and seas influenced them and, thus, the climate. Here are some studies of what had happened during the naval war and how this one had a big impact over the climate:

    • Gail Combs says:

      Blaming human origin CO2 has ZERO quantitative basis even if CO2 causes some warming.

      About 95% 0f the total greenhouse effect is water so this accounts for 0.57 C deg of the total change.

      CO2, the other major player, is responsible for the other 0.03 C deg of Dangerous “Warming”.

      But, human origin CO2 is only about 4% of all atmospheric CO2 so the human input, if this mechanism was real, is 0.0012 C deg.

      We cannot even measure that change in temperature. from Lindzen & Choi 2009)

    • Gail Combs says:

      Actually the influence on the ocean is the sun and the moon.



      This graphic is an animation (if it works right 😉 that shows how the point of the eclipse moves over the earth during a Saros series. That is also the point in direct alignment with the moon and sun, so ought to have the most direct tidal force. Various eclipses in each cycle and series. It is the net-net of all those wandering forces that stirs the world oceans.

      E.M. Takes a long hard look at moon/solar tidal forces on the ocean and the effects on weather.

      So does Clive Best (He has a Bsc in Physics and a PhD in High Energy Physics and has worked as a research fellow at CERN for 3 years, Rutherford Lab for 2 years and the JET Nuclear Fusion experiment for 5 years.)

        So not only is the data minipulated, adjusted, fudged, tortured and rigged beyond recognition by alarmists, the science behind the entire hypothesis is entirely flawed. Yet they have the nerve to threaten to use RICO against the skeptics!

  7. Henry P says:

    the latest curve of mine shows 100% correlation on a quadratic function for the drop in the speed of warming.(minima)

    there is no chaos?
    there is no man made warming.
    The forces of nature are so strong that they suppress any AGW signal,
    so any man made warming is an insignificant number.

    I went to post one of my favorite graphs showing the solar spectrum from colorado edu-sorce.
    Originally my book mark showed the graph. Then for the last year or so it went to a SORCE page. Now it goes to a different source page and has completely disappeared from the site.

    Not only has it disappeared from colorado edu, it has been wiped from much of the Wayback Machine!
    The oldest from 2012:

    From 2014 (when I used it here at Steve’s) refers to the same useless site at SORCE.

    I did finally manage to find a copy on the Wayback Machine.

    Which brings me to the main point that Kent Clizbe and I were discussing earlier. NOAA/NASA and CLEAN are coordinating an effort to make sure there is NO INFORMATION except ClimAstrology not only in K through grad school but also on the internet!!!!

    The discussion between Kent and I starts HERE

    This is frightening stuff folks. I knew ‘inconvienent’ information was being removed from the internet but I didn’t know it was a multi-million dollar concerted effort directed by NOAA!!!!

    EXCERPT from discussion:

    ….What was interesting was when I tried to follow up on a pointer to:

    “Sorry… 7Egeol445 hyperglac isostasy1 20 5C 5C 20Rates’ does not exist or is not available.”

    So I poked around and found Isostasy and Postglacial Rebound “This resource is no longer officially part of our collection ….” refering to cleanet in the URL.

    So I continued poking around and I found it had been removed by the CLEAN project

    …The Climate Literacy and Energy Awareness Network (CLEAN) Portal was launched in 2010 as a National Science Digital Library (NSDL) Pathways project. It is led by the science education expertise of TERC…

    That goes to TERC (Housed in Commie central aka Cambridge MA. I lived there for a while and the Communists are really up front and in your face not hiding behind socialism!)

    Currently, TERC’s staff of 104—including nationally recognized leaders in educational research and curriculum development—are actively engaged in over 70 projects and 62% of staff have advanced degrees in science, mathematics, engineering, education, psychology, and technology. In 2013 TERC had $13.5 million in revenue. Each year, TERC’s products and services reach more than 3.5 million students throughout the United States…

    Following up on CLEAN (“Climate Literacy and Energy Awareness Network “) from TERC, what do I find? NOAA!

    You have to see the interactive header to believe it!

    • Gail Combs says:

      Steve can you do a screen capture of that graph and save it here at your site so it is not ‘disappeared forever’

    • DD More says:

      Gail, there doing it to Heating Degree Days also.
      The last four months have been some of the coldest you might ever recall in our lifetime. So far 2015 is the fourth coldest in Maine’s history over the last 120 years. Data from 2013 confirm that so far – from January 1 to April 29 – 2015 has required 4249 heating degree days. That rivals 1904, 1918 and 1923 over the last 120 years. But when I recently looked at NOAA’s revised 2015 data, these last four months now would not even put us in the top twenty of coldest months. The federal government went into the historical data and lowered those earlier years – and other years in the earlier decades – so that they can keep spending $27 billion a year on pushing global warming.

        They have done it to most of the temperature record. I used to show a graph of Norfolk City, a city on the North Carolina/Virgina border and right on the ocean, and the near by Norfolk International Airport as well as the Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation.

        Norfolk City followed the same curve as the Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation while Norfolk International Airport headed straight up with no sign of a curve. It was a really great example of UHI at airports.
        Old URL: Norfolk City

        Old URL: Norfolk International Airport

        The Wayback Machine gives: Page cannot be crawled or displayed due to robots.txt.

        Now all that is available is Norfolk Naval Station starting in 1945.

    Here is another example of the state of US Academics having nothing to do with weather or climate except in the human sense. This may also be an eye opener for understanding why the way SF makes war is special: Intelligence: Screw the Academics.
