    It’s worse than we thought! Since 1992, the Florida Panthers have had to play all of their home games on artificial indoor ice! They haven’t played an outdoor home game this century! Undeniable proof of CAGW.

    • Brilliant sir! There is million dollar grant proposal in your idea!🙂

      • gator69 says:

        My model (currently for sale!) predicts that the Florida Panthers will never again be able to play on natural ice at home, and that this is unequivocally the white man’s fault. This is a global crime against humanity and deserves the attention of every government, every NGO, and every religion.

          Law enforcement arrived to put an end to that performance on a London rooftop. Although that little crackdown might have been staged, it does make me wonder how long we have until law enforcement puts an end to our free speech on subjects like global warming. Let’s do everything to make sure that never happens.

    Being able to see the water vapor condense from the players breaths adds something to the spectacle of the game. I wouldn’t mind seeing the Vikings win.

    Steven, why do you post these things without investigating what is going on? The information is available. Here is a visual representation of what has happened in the northern hemisphere over the last week: http://www.esrl.noaa.gov/psd/map/images/fnl/sfctmpmer_01a.fnl.anim.html

    Notice that, except for two regions, one of which is over part of the US, the entire northern hemisphere is warmer than normal. You should then ask: What is causing this? The answer is the jet stream has slowed and bunched up. We have discussed this before. It is believed that the slowing of the jet stream is caused by a reduction in the temperature difference between the Arctic air mass and the lower latitudes. Here is the explanation: http://www.scientificamerican.com/article/big-waves-in-jet-stream-mean-extreme-weather/

    You always seem to fool yourself by your incomplete research.

    • Gail Combs says:

      No we do NOT;

      From NASA:

      In addition, the solar-plus-ozone change leads to increased tropical stratospheric warming in the mid-to-upper stratosphere during solar maximum conditions. Higher latitudes during Southern Hemisphere winter receive no such augmentation, and the increased latitudinal temperature gradient results in stronger stratospheric west winds. Via the interaction of these wind changes and planetary waves propagating up from the troposphere, the circulation in the stratosphere weakens, a response characterized by greater relative upwelling in the Southern Hemisphere extratropics, and more downwelling in the northern extratropics. This downwelling has a tendency to extend into the troposphere, limiting convection and rainfall during Northern Hemisphere summer at these latitudes, producing drier conditions. This effect is seen in some paleoclimate records and has been attributed to solar influence.

      From your buddies at WIKI

      Rossby waves, also known as planetary waves, are a natural phenomenon in the atmosphere and oceans of planets that largely owe their properties to rotation. Rossby waves are a subset of inertial waves.

      Atmospheric Rossby waves on Earth are giant meanders in high-altitude winds with major influence on weather. These Rossby waves are associated with pressure systems and the jet stream.

      Meander Defined:

      verb
      Meander is defined as to take a winding course or wander aimlessly.

      As I keep telling you changes in solar UV cause changes in stratospheric ozone cause changes in wind patterns, therefore it is the SUN that is responsible for ‘loopy’ jets. Even NASA agrees and so does PENN STATE UNIV

      Ozone depletion trumps greenhouse gas increase in jet-stream shift
      January 31, 2013

      UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Depletion of Antarctic ozone is a more important factor than increasing greenhouse gases in shifting the Southern Hemisphere jet stream in a southward direction, according to researchers at Penn State.

      “Previous research suggests that this southward shift in the jet stream has contributed to changes in ocean circulation patterns and precipitation patterns in the Southern Hemisphere, both of which can have important impacts on people’s livelihoods,” said Sukyoung Lee, professor of meteorology.

      According to Lee, based on modeling studies, both ozone depletion and greenhouse gas increase are thought to have contributed to the southward shift of the Southern Hemisphere jet stream, with the former having a greater impact. But until now, no one has been able to determine the extent to which each of these two forcings has contributed to the shift using observational data.

      “Understanding the differences between these two forcings is important in predicting what will happen as the ozone hole recovers,” she said. ”

      To get funding and through peer-review got have that reference to Greenhouse gases. Note it is NOT CO2 so that means WATER.

      • Martin Smith says:

        Gail, as usual, your verbal avalanche has little to do with the subject. It is talking about the southern hemisphere, which has nothing to do with this. You continue to try to overwhelm your opponents with diatribes of great length, and with many unrelated graphs, and often with animated gifs that are of no value at all.

      • Martin Smith says:

        Here is the explanation, Gail:

        Why does the ozone hole form over Antarctica ?

        The answer is essentially ‘because of the weather in the ozone layer’. In order for rapid ozone destruction to happen, clouds (known as PSCs, Stratospheric Clouds Mother of Pearl or Nacreous Clouds) have to form in the ozone layer. In these clouds surface chemistry takes place. This converts chlorine or bromine (from CFCs and other ozone depleting chemicals) into an active form, so that when there is sunlight, ozone is rapidly destroyed. Without the clouds, there is little or no ozone destruction. Only during the Antarctic winter does the atmosphere get cold enough for these clouds to form widely through the centre of the ozone layer. Elsewhere the atmosphere is just too warm and no clouds form. The northern and southern hemispheres have different ‘weather’ in the ozone layer, and the net result is that the temperature of the Arctic ozone layer during winter is normally some ten degrees warmer than that of the Antarctic. This means that such clouds are rare, but sometimes the ‘weather’ is colder than normal and they do form. Under these circumstances significant ozone depletion can take place over the Arctic, but it is usually for a much shorter period of time and covers a smaller area than in the Antarctic.

          YAWN,

          Marty trots out the old CFC clap trap.

          Dude IT IS THE SUN!

          NASA: Ozone Production and Destruction

          Stratospheric ozone is created and destroyed primarily by ultraviolet (UV) radiation. The air in the stratosphere is bombarded continuously with UV radiation from the Sun.When high energy UV rays strike molecules of ordinary oxygen (O2), they split the molecule into two single oxygen atoms.The free oxygen atoms can then combine with oxygen molecules (O2) to form ozone (O3) molecules.

          O2 + UV light → 2 O
          O + O2 + M → O3 + M (where M indicates conservation of energy and momentum)

          The same characteristic of ozone that makes it so valuable – its ability to absorb a range of UV radiation – also causes its destruction. When an ozone molecule is exposed to UV energy it may revert back into O2 and O. During dissociation, the atomic and molecular oxygens gain kinetic energy, which produces heat and causes an increase in atmospheric temperature.

          Ozone production is driven by UV radiation of wavelengths less than 240 nm. Ozone dissociation typically produces atomic oxygen (O) that is stable when exposed to longer UV wavelengths, up to 320 nm, and visible light wavelengths of 400-700 nm. Longer wavelength photons can penetrate deeper into the atmosphere, creating regions of ozone production and destruction. When an ozone molecule absorbs even low energy UV, it splits into an ordinary oxygen molecule and a free oxygen atom….

          CFC is too darn heavy to get into the stratosphere. It is inert and the readings for the ozone scare were taken down wind of an active volcano in the antarctic that was/is producing chlorine gas.

          “Summary of Paper 1
          In this paper, we analysed publically archived weather measurements taken by a large sample of weather balloons launched across North America. We realised that by analysing these measurements in terms of a property known as the “molar density” of the air, we would be able to gain new insight into how the temperature of the air changes with height.

          When we took this approach, we found we were able to accurately describe the changes in temperature with height all the way up to where the balloons burst, i.e., about 35 kilometres (20 miles) high.

          We were able to describe these temperature profiles by just accounting for changes in water content and the existence of a previously overlooked phase change. This shows that the temperatures at each height are completely independent of the infrared-active gas concentrations, which directly contradicts the predictions of the greenhouse effect theory.”

        • Martin Smith says:

          ren, the “changes in water content” your blog refers to are there because of the changes in CO2 content. As CO2 increase, the temperature of the atmosphere increases because of the greenhouse effect. As the temperature increases, the air can hold more water, so as water evaporates from the surface, more of it stays in the air. Water vapor is a greenhouse gas, so when they say they can account for temperature changes by accounting for the water vapor, they are STILL talking about the greenhouse effect.

          Furthermore, these “papers” are not peer reviewed and published.

    jdseanjd asks: “Just for fun, any guess where this all ends, Gail?”
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    Yes of course.

    The goal of the Elite/Aristocracy has been to crush the middle class and return to a feudal two class society ever since the middle class rose up and shook off their chains, first with the American Revolution and then with the French Revolution. As I spell out HERE, Karl Marx was charged with coming up with something to replace The Divine Right of Kings and the Holy Roman Empire that had existed for a thousand years.

    Karl Marx even says as much.

    The bourgeoisie, wherever it has got the upper hand, has put an end to all feudal, patriarchal, idyllic relations. It has pitilessly torn asunder the motley feudal ties that bound man to his ‘natural superiors,’

    The bourgeoisie has stripped of its halo every occupation hitherto honored and looked up to with reverent awe. It has converted the physician, the lawyer, the priest, the poet, the man of science, into its paid wage laborers.” ― Karl Marx, The Communist Manifesto

    The last of course appeals to the likes of Mikey Mann, Schmidt and the rest.

    ……………….

    As far as I can tell, two long term experiments were tried on the Great Unwashed. One was the Communist Soviet Union where the conversion to Neo-Feudalism was ruthlessly forced and the other is the European Union where the conversion is gradual (via Fabian Socialism.)

    The Soviet Experiment – Natasha’s Dance: A Cultural History of Russia

    Nothing better illustrates the everyday reality of the Revolution than this transformation of domestic space. The provincial gentry were deprived of their estate, their manor houses burned or confiscated by the peasant communes or the local Soviet, and the rich forced to share their large appartments with the urban poor…. This Soviet ‘war against palaces’ was a war on privilege and the cultural symbols of the Tsarist past. But it was also a part of a crusade to engineer a more collective way of life which lay at the heart of the cultural revolution in the Soviet Union. By forcing people to share communal flats, the Bolsheviks believe that they could make them communistic in their basic thinking and behavior….

    The other option is the one now in progress, the destruction of national sovereignty as seen in the European Union and the Trans-Pacific Partnership while implementing “Sustainability” The goal is still the same however. A return of the serfs to the feudal estate and the destruction of the Middle class. Only the method has changed.

    Christiana Figueres, disciple of Al Gore, and Executive Secretary of the UN Framework Convention even says the goal is Communism.

    United Nations climate chief Christiana Figueres said that democracy is a poor political system for fighting global warming. Communist China, she says, is the best model.
    “This is the first time in the history of mankind that we are setting ourselves the task of intentionally, within a defined period of time, to change the economic development model that has been reigning for at least 150 years, since the Industrial Revolution… democracy is a poor political system for fighting global warming. Communist China is the best model.”

    For several decades, through our entire generation, they use Animal Rights, Vegetarianism, Enviornmentalism, censorship and fear of global warming to convince the unwashed masses they WANT to be serfs. We already see the next step happening now in Europe where private property is being confiscated to house the muslim refugees who will no doubt destroy it. — Desert sanitation does not use toilets and water.

    Christ Church NZ shows UN Agenda 21 on steroids. Recent events in the EU, USA and Australia make sense if you realize the goal is to destroy the present infrastructure and build brand new to the UN Agenda 21/Sustainability plans. So flood the EU with muslims, rile up the blacks in the USA and when the clashes finally ignite destroy the old inner cities you can rebuild to the new building codes. — Simples!

    Another goal is a major reduction in population. War (rile up Russia and China) and inner city civil war does that just fine.
    Changing the Global Warming Metaphor by PETER BELMONT

    …To make the problems as small as possible, we should reduce the size of mankind–reduce the global human population–by as much as we can, say to 50% of today’s population. Because the process of neutralizing GHGs is likely to require the use of natural lands–unbuilt and presently non-agricultural lands–to serve as “engines” for neutralization, through the growth of new forests for example. And at present. our over-the-top human population is carrying us in the other direction, the direction of clearing the Amazonian forests and other forests in the pursuit of land for cattle raising and building-products, and both of these and other similar reasons all arise from over-population….

      CEOs for Cities The Bicycle: The Simple Tool for 21st Century Urban Sustainability

      I can speak for other Americans who have traveled to other locales and marveled at the high quality of living in those places – especially compared to the automobile-dependant, lifeless cities of the U.S. How we got to be a largely car-dependant, unhealthy society has to do with the early surrender of our cities to cars without the balancing mechanism of maintaining our streetcar and bicycle modes, which had been prominent in nearly all American towns of more than 10,000 people up until the 1930’s. Today, several European cities, most notably Amsterdam and Copenhagen, have become models in the utilization of the simple bicycle as a major tool in the restoring of transportation balance and sustainability to their urban fabrics.

      National Multifamily Housing Council Welcome to NMHC’s Green Practices Portal

      Apartments are the core of any sustainability strategy. They are more resource- and energy-efficient than other types of residential development because their concentrated infrastructure conserves materials and community services. As part of an infill or mixed-use development, apartments create communities where people live, work, and play with less dependence on cars. This reduces the consumption of fossil fuels and their carbon emissions.

      Through the NMHC Sustainability Committee, the Council is advancing industry best practices; working with lawmakers to adopt voluntary and incentive-based energy policy; and developing and promoting standards to help firms market their sustainability quotient.

      This online resource is designed to help apartment developers and managers build and operate more sustainable properties and to help policymakers craft effective energy efficiency goals.

      And those ‘sustainable’ apartments are being built.

      Sustainable development, as defined by the Brundtland Commission (1987) is “development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs”.

      By definition, then, sustainable development is development that takes the impact on the environment into account and tries to minimize environmental damage.

      I’m of the opinion that sustainable development is a good thing in itself, but whatever your personal opinion, sustainable development is something that all businesses, large and small, should be actively involved in.Sustainable development, as defined by the Brundtland Commission (1987) is “development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs”.

      The Brundtland Commission officially dissolved in December 1987 after releasing Our Common Future, also known as the Brundtland Report, in October 1987, a document which coined, and defined the meaning of the term “Sustainable Development”. The Brundtland Commission argues against the assertions of the 1972 Stockholm Conference on the Human Environment and provides an alternative perspective on sustainable development, unique from that of the 1980 World Conservation Strategy of the International Union for the Conservation of Nature.

        Belated muchas gracias, Gail. I stumbled on this by accident as it was not flagged as a reply.🙂

        I’ve just finished a book you may be interested in: Merchants of Despair, by Robert Zubrin, a Ph.D in nuclear engineering.
        He focuses on the depopulation agendas of the antihumanists, as he terms the 1%s.
        Correctly, IMHO.

        Zubrin wants fusion power developed to reach the stars, Mars to be developed, etc.
        Defo not interested in a feudal future.
