Activists was trying to get this article retracted, they actually succeeded when it comes to the Western Journal, the reference of the article for this blog. Due to information received (ref. the comment section) i have reason to believe the criticism was nothing more than a dishonest attempt to silence skeptics of the (Man Made) Global Warming, AGW SCAM. Unless errors are being documented, the article will remain unchanged, as is.
Americans receive a daily barrage from the fake news media and climate “experts” reporting that each and every day, week, month or year is the hottest on record due to global warming. On Feb. 7, several major newspapers carried stories of the declaration by NASA and NOAA that the past five years have been the warmest on record.
Sadly, these supposed experts use mathematical equations that do not jibe with reality over the past 140 years.
The same climate experts warn that record heat is just the tip of the iceberg. We are constantly told that global warming is the root cause behind any and all weather events that are extreme, destructive, unusual or uncomfortable.
Many of these fear mongers also say we should stop burning fossil fuels that are causing this mayhem.
Is the Earth truly experiencing the hottest weather on record?
Actual weather records over the past 100 years show no correlation between rising carbon dioxide levels and local temperatures.
However, climate change alarmists always find somewhere on Earth where temperatures are higher than ever. The focus is always on isolated temperatures that have reached all-time highs while the same reports ignore all-time record lows. These zealots would like you to believe that due to fossil fuel emissions, summers are now longer and hotter while winters are shorter and milder.
Yet, the actual temperature records tell a very different story. Did the Earth experience its highest temperature ever this year? The answer is no.
The highest temperature ever reported was 136 degrees Fahrenheit in Libya in 1922. The record high temperature for the United States was 134 degrees Fahrenheit in Death Valley, California, in 1913. Fossil fuel emissions in 1913 and 1922 were negligible compared to today.
The coldest temperature ever reported was 129 degrees below zero Fahrenheit in Vostok, Antarctica, in 1983, when Carbon dioxide emissions were five times higher than in 1913. The coldest temperature in the lower 48 states of minus 64 degrees Fahrenheit was recorded in 1996 in Embarass, Minnesota. Did the media and climate scientists warn that this low temperature indicated that we are headed for another Ice Age?
The maximum reported difference between high and low temperatures at a single location is 188 degrees Fahrenheit (from minus 90F to plus 98F) in Verhoyansk, Siberia. In fact, record changes of highs and lows have occurred in 22 U.S. cities on a single day. For example, in 1989 the temperature in Alamosa, Colorado, varied between a low of 35F and a high of 91F for a temperature swing of 56 degrees F.
We hope these examples, right out of the weather record books, compiled by C.C. Burt in his book “Extreme Weather Changes,” will help you to understand the scams alarmists are trying to pull. These examples all illustrate that cherry picking record high temperatures in isolated locations tells absolutely nothing about the Earth’s climate.
The strongest heat wave ever recorded occurred in July 1936, generating high temperatures in half of America’s states. In 1935, fossil fuel emissions were 96 percent lower than today. America’s coldest year occurred in 1899, when temperatures dropped below 0 F in all 48 states.
Interesting that the figure above shows the most severe historic cold wave during the past century took place in 1936, which was the same year when the strongest heat wave took place. In terms of general behavior, the global warming alarmist prediction is that as time progresses and fossil fuel emissions increase, the number of record highs should increase and record lows should decrease. However, these trends do not exist and the data dispels, rather than supports, the global warming hypothesis.
Concurrently a compilation of all days since 1915 when temperatures exceeded 90F shows them decreasing with time rather than increasing in Figure 2.
The heat wave experienced in the 1930s and 1950s are clearly evident here. Once again, the data does not support the claim that the United States is hotter than ever as a result of rising Carbon dioxide levels.
From 1970 until 1998 there was a warming period that raised temperatures by about 0.7 F that helped spawn the global warming alarmist movement. However, since 1998, little warming has occurred while carbon dioxide emissions continue to increase. This is totally consistent with variations in the amount of heat the Earth receives from the Sun.
These facts are completely supported by 4,000 ocean floats which measure ocean temperatures at a variety of depths. This data at argo.ucsd.edu measures the oceans where climate-induced temperatures occur.
CORRECTION, Feb. 21, 2019: An earlier version of this article included the following statement: “The strongest heat wave ever recorded occurred in July 1936, generating high temperatures in half of America’s 50 states. In 1935, fossil fuel emissions were 25 times lower than today. America’s coldest year occurred in 1899, when temperatures dropped below 0 F in all 50 states.”
There were 45 states in 1899 and 48 in 1936.
Climate Alarmists Flounder As Polar Bears And Penguins Thrive
By Chris Morrison
It has been a difficult year for the icons of the climate alarmist industry. Wherever you look, from polar bears to penguins, numbers are on the rise.
And why won’t all those Himalayan glaciers hurry up and melt? Don’t they know there’s a climate war on?
The recent reports that gangs of plump polar bears are roaming around the Novaya Zemlya archipelago in far northern Russia would appear to be excellent news.
For years we were told their numbers were under threat owing to the effect of climate change in the Arctic. In fact, the climate had nothing to do with it.
A long-time partial ban on hunting means numbers have been steadily increasing. The bears are scavengers with a preference for seals but the food waste dumped by obliging non-shooting Russians will do nicely.
The Guardian excelled itself in covering the story and produced some classic climate crackpottery. The bears have nowhere to go and the echo of a refugee crisis is no accident, it suggested.
‘More and more species, along with people, are being driven from their homes by climate disruption, raising the risk of conflict.’
No doubt if polar bear numbers continue to increase they will move south, change their coats and join their distant cousins Yogi and Boo Boo making a decent living nicking picnic baskets in Jellystone Park. (Note to self: you really must stop reading the Guardian, your grip on reality seems to be suffering).
Down in Antarctica, the poster-friendly penguins are refusing to play ball. A couple of years ago the BBC reported that around 70 percent of emperor penguins will ‘relocate or disappear before the end of the century because of greenhouse gas emissions’.
Of course, animals in the wild often relocate – it’s called looking for food. But there seems to be plenty of tack to go around.
Recently, in addition to the 600,000-strong emperor population, a colony of 1.5million Adelie penguins was spotted by satellite in a remote rocky archipelago happily fishing and sunbathing or whatever it is that penguins do in their spare time.
Sun permitting, it should be noted. Recent scientific discoveries have found that it has been snowing in the area much harder for the last 100 years than previously thought. And in large parts of Antarctica, ice is increasing.
Seemingly this was news to the two hardy Dutch eco-tourists who set out last year to drive their solar-powered car to the South Pole during the southern summer. The couple were banking on a 24-hour sun and noted ‘we are heading towards the future’.
Indeed they were. It didn’t stop snowing and they abandoned their trip halfway. You would need a heart of stone not to laugh.
And of course, there were plenty of similar chuckles back in 2013 when the Australasian Antarctica Expedition ship set off to show the ice was thinning and then had to be rescued having got ‘stuck in our own experiment’.
Of course, it is good to see the Himalayan glaciers getting another turn to shine – or rather melt – after the 2007 UN IPCC report said they would all be gone by 2035.
According to the pro-alarmist Skeptical Science, the ‘error’ occurred when the IPCC recycled a magazine article which in turn was based on the speculation of a sole glaciologist.
Glaciers had to keep a low profile after this display of fabricated political science, but you can’t keep a good scare down for long.
Now we learn that a third of the Himalayan glaciers are predicted to melt by 2100. This claim, the subject of countless headlines, is found in a recent report.
No doubt the complex science has been rigorously tested by the lead editor, a water resources manager, and the authors of the introduction, one of whom is the finance minister of Nepal.
What is happening with climate today has occurred naturally many times over. The glaciers will eventually melt since we are starting to climb out of an ice age – that is why there is still ice at the Poles.
Few events demonstrate climate ignorance more than the recent children’s marches. It is doubtful if many of the participants know much about CO2, such is the science actually taught to them in schools.
They seem to think it is carbon, a mostly black solid with a molecular weight about a quarter of the gas CO2. And they certainly have little concept of time and the fact that climate has always changed.
Encouraging impressionable youngsters as energy minister Claire Perry shamefully did to attend emotional Left-wing climate demos, where violence could occur, is an appalling breach of trust by supposedly responsible adults.
Perhaps the pupils and their teachers could be punished by having to listen to Sir David Attenborough give his simplistic TV presenter views on climate change.
Certainly, that would be a terrible ordeal for your correspondent, but I fear the brainwashed kids and their teachers might regard it as a treat.
