NOAA closes 600 ‘hot’ weather stations.

Well, it’s about time! This has been known for years by many people, including us, yet NOAA did nothing about it until now. We’re still suspicions and wonder how many more should be closed down or moved elsewhere. We’ve yet to feel it get hotter at night than daytime, (unless we turned on the heater) which is evidently something NOAA was unable to fathom until now. You can read more here.

Record Global Warming in UK

Snow, weather, winter, Britain, UK, big freeze, ice, energy crisis, transport, severe weather

Yes, I said record global warming in UK. As we know from what many corrupt scientists who have been trying to CYA lately, all this snow is the result of global warming as are droughts, tornadoes, heatwaves, tidal waves, hurricanes, floods, earthquakes, meteors, and everything and anything else you can pull out of your hat. It’s that heat-cooling, warming-freezing effect again.

Another day, another solar ripoff

Another day, another greenco ripoff. Seems this time we have a firm that’s managed to ripoff the Feds and Arizona for  a few million hard-earned tax dollars. It seems Suntech is filing for bankruptcy.

Suntech is shuttering the Goodyear plant and laying off its 43 remaining workers. But not before it pocketed $1.5 million in tax breaks from the state, $2.1 million from the federal government, and $500,000 in job training from the city.

In case your calculator is broken that’s another $3.65 million out the door. Not much compared to Solyndra other greenco failures, but it all adds up.

The amazing NASA can’t figure out what’s going on with the Sun

Sunspot numbers are well below their values from 2011, and strong solar flares have been infrequent, as this image shows - despite Nasa forecasting major solar storms

Brought to you by the same people who can’t tell you why there’s been no global warming for the past 15 or so years, explain why sea-level rise has effectively halted, explain why Antarctic just about broke the record for the highest minimum sea-ice extent, or why the ice is reforming in the Arctic, we get these pearls of wisdom.

‘Something unexpected’ is happening on the Sun, Nasa has warned. 

This year was supposed to be the year of ‘solar maximum,’ the peak of the 11-year sunspot cycle. 

But as this image reveals, solar activity is relatively low.

Like the numerous global warming faux pas and excuses, some enterprising scientist has pulled a rabbit out of his hat explanation for this.

However, Solar physicist Dean Pesnell of NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center believes he has a different explanation.

‘This is solar maximum,’ he says. 

‘But it looks different from what we expected because it is double-peaked.’

Perhaps they should consider moving to Stonehenge, or perhaps hiring those wacky guys from Big Bang Theory.

Ice-Free Antarctic, Arctic Predictions in the Toilet

It appears to us that predictions of the Antarctic and Arctic being ice-free are about as impressive as predicting dinosaurs are having a comeback and will reappear any decade now, but we just don’t know what one. Why do we say this?

From our take, it looks like the ice at both poles is indeed making a comeback, not receding. As you can see from this article at The Global Warming Policy Foundation (GWPF), the Antarctic ice is back and could even set a new record:

It is very likely 2013 will go down in the history books as having the 2nd highest Antarctic sea ice minimum of all time. In 2013 there was 1.4 million sq km more sea ice than there was in 1997 at minimum.

Top 6 Minimum Extents:

Year Day Minimum Extent
2008 51 3.69176
2013 50 3.6504
2003 48 3.6257
2001 50 3.44094
1995 55 3.32988
2004 51 3.25927

Lowest 6 Minimums:

Year Day Minimum_Extent
1997 58 2.26415
1993 50 2.28078
1984 58 2.38292
2006 51 2.4866
1992 54 2.49238
1980 57 2.52686

You can plainly see from the below chart that there’s plenty of ice this year. To reiterate, it could even be a new record.

So what about those dire Antarctic predictions? Well, here’s some links for you to read.

Antarctica: It’s Getting Hot at the Bottom of the Planet: Time evidently thinks there’s a heat-wave down there.

Polar ice sheets ‘are melting three times faster than they were just two decades ago‘:  Uh huh, this one has both poles melting at accelerated rates.

Antarctic Ice Melt: This one has it losing-gaining. Must be like that global warming caused cooling and worse blizzards with less snow or something.

What about all those dire Arctic predictions telling us that by such and such a year you’ll be able to circumnavigate the North Pole in your kayak? Well, frankly, there’s so many predictions that someday, it may be one of them will get lucky, but only because it will be like the stopped clock that’s correct twice per day. It will be due to blind luck and not those garbage-in-preferred-result-out computer models.

As you can see by the below chart, there doesn’t appear to be a big problem in the Arctic either. So far it’s way ahead of 2007, the year that caused some warmers to hit the panic button.

Here’s a sampling for your review with links to the articles.

Ice Free Arctic Update – This one’s too funny. Why? Well, here we have “Top NASA experts predicted an ice-free Arctic for 2012.” Well, sorry guys, but 2012 is gone and that ice is not only still there, there’s a whole shitload of it.

Serreze : Ice Free Arctic In 2100 2070 2050 2030 – Looks to us like Serreze is like a guy who bets every spot on Roulette, knowing he’ll lose his ass, but at least he’ll win one spot.

By 2050 the Arctic ice sheet will be so thin that ships could be sailing across the North Pole, experts predict – We have to wonder if these are the same “experts” that predicted the Arctic being ice-free in 2012? Note they had to run 7 computer simulations to arrive at this conclusion. Must have taken a lot of time to come up with that garbage-in-the desired-result-out. After all that please note the use of the word “could” in the very first sentence.

There’s plenty more predictions out there but we don’t believe we have enough bandwidth to post them all.

We could book a summer vacation to the soon to be hot spot of Point Barrow, Alaska, or Western Antarctica, but it’s kind of hard to book in advance when you don’t know what yeardecade, century, not to mention if it’s ever going to happen.

Hey, let’s come up with another nutty idea and get some of that global warming grant money!

The headline is:

Could we refreeze the Arctic? Scientists suggest radical solution to global warming.

So what is it? Oh, they just want to inject reflective particles into the atmosphere, that’s all. Of course this is again all based upon those good old garbage in garbage out climate models the warmers all love to talk about as though they were the word of God when in reality most are at best, glorified computer games.

Note their chart below and how they, of course, conveniently pick the highest and lowest times and the lowest date and completely seem to forget about all the other years in between and conveniently forget to show you what’s happened since September  16, 20112.

In my opinion this could easily leave one with the impression that first, there was all this ice, now it’s all melted and it’s not coming back. Egads! The sky is falling.

Melting: These images from Nasa show reveal the full extent of Arctic ice shrinkage, showing a new record low compared to the average minimum extent over the past 30 years (in yellow)

Really now? Is it really so bad we need to refreeze the Arctic? Ummm…..gee Mr. Scientist(s)….it refreezes every winter. Think not? Well look at the below chart.

ssmi1-ice-area

Just follow the red line folks. Oops! It’s refreezing all by itself! Imagine that. Note it’s also back up above the previous low year of 2007.

For some strange reason there’s a funny smell. Hmmm…we have it!  No, it’s not Teen Spirit. It smells like grant money!

Your Pacific islands aren’t going to flood Nervous Warmers

According to meteorologist Klaus-Eckart Puls:

Sea Level Rise Has Slowed 34% Over The Last Decade!

Yes all you nervous warmers who think that man-made computer scenarios are proof positive of man-made global warming, it appears they’re not proof of anything except garbage in = garbage out. They’re models, fantasies, scenarios and certainly no real proof of anything but wishful thinking by some so-called climatologists.

Remember this the next time you hear about how some islands in the Pacific Ocean, like Nauru or the Maldives, are going to be flooded over by man-made CO2 caused sea-level rise. According to real data, it appears they aren’t and won’t. Remember this next time you read claims about beaches on both coasts of the United States that will soon be flooded and how millions or billions of dollars are needed to mitigate sea-level rise. It’s another government money grab.

Based upon the actual data, (real data and not glorified computer games), the predictions made by computer models don’t even equate to what’s actually happened the previous 20 years. In other words, those computer models everyone claims you can take to the bank are wrong.

Another reality is that even though the CO2 levels are rising and approaching 400 ppm, sea-level rise is slowing and not accelerating as some claim is happening. The causation of rising CO2 levels obviously do not correlate to accelerating sea-level rise.

In our opinion, claiming some islands, beaches and cities will be soon underwater is another form of ecoterror. One of the many claims being made to globally extract money via schemes like carbon trading, which James Hansen even agrees is “a half-assed way to deal with global warming.”

We suggest you read the entire article at the source below.
