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.

When the Earth Goes Tilt

Tilt! A word associated with pinball games (if anyone remembers what those are) is now associated with the warming and cooling of the planet.

The idea that slight shifts in Earth’s axis might have been enough to trigger the ice ages is a century old.

But a Harvard earth sciences Professor Peter Huybers has finally proved it, using computer models to test competing ideas – and finding that earth’s tilting axis is the only one that works.

So, per this, it’s not that nasty old anthropogenic (man-made) CO2 that certain warmers have been blithering about for decades, it’s the variation of the tilt of the Earth’s axis, something I remember hearing about in grade school about 50 years ago, in pre-Goracle times when kids were taught actual science and didn’t major in Greentard Brainwashing 101.

Two ‘cycles’ in the way Earth’s axis spins have an effect on the cycle – one lasting 10,000 years and one lasting roughly 40,000 years.

When they align correctly, ice melts. At the other extreme, glaciers advance.

‘And at least now we know with greater than 99 percent confidence that shifts in earth’s axis are among the factors that contribute to deglaciation.’ 

OK. We’re waiting for certain people out there we all know and ‘love’ to capitulate and say ‘oops!’, but we won’t hold our breath.

Tokelau isn’t Tanking

With COP17 CON17 going on, the shrillness of those who want to make big bucks off the global warming scam is increasing exponentially.

Today we have the Honorable Foua Toloa, head of Government of Tokelau in the Pacific, who believes the island’s 1,400 inhabitants are at grave risk from climate change lack of money. Of course him, and others in charge of low-lying (emphasis on lying) islands worldwide are hoping to cash in on the global warming gravy-train.

You can look at the graph below showing the south Pacific sea-levels at Tuvalu, which is adjacent to Tokelau, and see just how much that sea-level is rising (not).

You can also look at the below graph of the south Pacific. While, yes there is an overall uptrend of 2.73 millimeters per year, note the downtrend that is starting in 2010. Also note that 2.73 millimeters = 0.107480315 inches. Or, a whopping 10th of an inch a year.

Tokelau is 5 meters above sea-level. 5 meters = 16.4041995 feet. Divide 16.4 feet (196.850394 inches) by 0.107480315 inches per year sea-level rise and we find it will take a mere 1,831.5 years for Tokelau to be completely submerged.

You have to ask yourself what all the rush is about? Being submerged in 1,832.5 years? Or, helping the United Nations clown circus by BS’ing everyone in order to get hundreds of billions of dollars sucked from productive countries via phony carbon trading scams and carbon taxes?

Mitt Romney does an Al Gore

No, we don’t make this stuff up. If you remember, the Reverend Al Gore, head kook of the Church of Global Warming, preached the gospel about how global warming will cause the sea-level to rise. Then, after all that preaching, Reverend Al bought beach front mansion in upscale Montecito, California.

We thought it was hysterical when I Hate the Media’s Mr. Editor and Mr. Administrator were so excited they bought a full-page ad in the local paper to welcome the Reverend Al to town, which got some warmer type people upset.

It seems that Mitt Romney has now developed a similar case of AGW hypocrisy. Back in June he told everyone he believes in anthropogenic global warming, ergo he believes in sea-level rise. Ergo, if one is going to build a mansion it had better be on top of Mount Araratnext to what’s left of Noah’s Ark so it’s safe.

So, what does Uncle Mitty do? Well, not only does Uncle Mitty own some beachfront property just north of San Diego in La Jolla, California, he now wants to tear down that measly 3,000 square foot mansion and replace it with an 11,062 square foot mansion, larger than Revered Al’s 6.500 square foot villa.

Sounds like a case of keeping up with the Gore’s to us. Or, perhaps a game of who has the bigger beachfront mansion full of global warming BS. Or, perhaps Uncle Mitty has some warmer-type investments we don’t know about? Or, it could just be a case of common CO2 Insanity.

Meanwhile, poor Obama has to rent his beach front vacation house. Loser!

Fake Sea Level Rise Approved by NASA in Climate Fraud

By John O’Sullivan

NASA researchers admit adding fake inches to sea level rises. Skeptics denounce desperate attempt to salvage government global warming policies.

In a disturbing development in the ongoing global warming fiasco the U.S. government-funded Sea Level Research Group has been given a green light from NASA to exaggerate sea level rises way above actual recorded measurements. The reason? So that policy makers can falsely blame humans for adding to natural rises in sea levels.

Land Mass Rise Used as Excuse to Fiddle Data

The NASA-funded Sea Level Research Group is based at the University of Colorado. It made the announcement last week that it will begin adding a nonexistent 0.3 millimeters per year to its Global Mean Sea Level Time Series.

Reporting in Forbes Magazine on this farce is James M. Taylor, senior fellow for environment policy at The Heartland Institute. Taylor pinpoints that NASA’s reason for this latest trick is to “compensate” for rising land mass.

Most folk have now cottoned onto the shenanigans of government paid climatologists since Climategate. In 2009 a clique of secretive scientists were caught fudging world temperatures to make it appear the earth was warming unnaturally when it wasn’t.

But with interest in global warming now bottoming to a 20-year low desperate new measures are being dreamt up to scare voters into accepting more tax rises to stem non-existent ‘human caused climate change.’

Now government ‘experts’ claim they need to add the bogus extra 0.3 millimeters each year onto satellite measurements of our ocean levels, which will conjure up an 1.2 inches over the course of the 21st century, to ‘compensate’ for the rise in land which has been occurring without any human interference since the end of the last ice age 11,000 years ago.

Last Ice Age Melting Still Changing Our Planet

Back then Manhattan and most of England was buried under one mile of ice that compressed the ground like squeezing water from a sponge. Over time the land has slowly been springing back up as the weight of billions of tons of ice has melted.

Taylor points out that this steady pace of an 8-inch rise in sea levels for the last century is very much in line with previous rates of sea level rise during our current Holocene interglacial period.

But Taylor, managing editor of Environment & Climate News adds, “with an artificially enhanced 9.2 inches of sea level rise, alarmists can claim sea level is rising 31 percent faster than it did last century.”

He notes, “While this is not monumental in and of itself, it will allow alarmists to paint a dramatically different picture of sea level rise than is occurring in the real world.”

Skeptics are accusing NASA of needless fiddling to bail out the discredited United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) which had hyped computer model guesstimates that we’d see 15 inches of sea level rise during the 21st century, which is double the rate recorded over the past century.

Even Al Gore No Longer Believes Sea Level Spin

However, rises in global temperatures have also stopped since the start of the 21st century and global cooling appears to have set in; according to independent researchers we may be on the cusp of a new ice age. Another clue that the global warming cult is on it’s last legs comes from former U.S. President, Al Gore, who first whipped up the frenzy about catastrophic sea level rises in his film, ‘An Inconvenient Truth;’  Gore is now the proud owner of a $9 million oceanfront villa in Montecito, California.

As the old saying goes, ‘follow the money’ and with so little real world data to back up increasingly discredited climate alarmism public interest in the global warming doomsaying continues to fall off a cliff.

New islands? I thought the sea-level was rising?

So why isn't this barrier island submerged? Bad predictions?

According to this article in the Daily Mail……

Using satellite images, topographical maps and navigational charts they have identified a total of 2,149 such islands worldwide.

This is significantly higher than the 1,492 identified in a 2001 survey conducted without the aid of publicly available satellite imagery.

So, long story short they missed 657 islands.

My point is that you’ve been hearing about global warming, climate change, climate disruption (or whatever you prefer to call it) that “the science is settled” for years.

Can someone please explain to me how the science can be “settled” about global warming when they can’t even account for all the islands on the planet? I’d guess we have certain scientists who “cant’ find their ass with both hands,” some of who may have either the cojones or the stupidity to attempt to predict what the climate will be on Earth 100 years from now.

It gets more ridiculous if you take into consideration all the predictions of sea-level rise. I mean if we have all this sea-level rise, then why aren’t these islands all submerged? Hmmmm?

Actually according to a post at Real Science, “the sea-level has dropped 30mm since the end of 2009,” as you can see from the chart at their site here.

So how accurate are those global warming predictions?

Evidently most are not very accurate at all. From Fox you can read about “8 Botched Environmental Forecasts.” There’s more, like the MET Office in Britain predicting a mild winter in 2010-2011, not to mention other warmists faux pas.

Below is one to whet your appetite. Considering all the Snowmageddons we’re having it seems very appropriate. Britain is even set to possibly have the coldest winter in 1,000 years. Yes 1,000, not 100 not 10.

1. Within a few years “children just aren’t going to know what snow is.” Snowfall will be “a very rare and exciting event.” Dr. David Viner, senior research scientist at the climatic research unit (CRU) of the University of East Anglia, interviewed by the UK Independent, March 20, 2000.

Well, I”d suggest Dr. Viner go ask someone in the UK or NYC about this “rare” snowfall. He could also ask anyone in much of Europe. Germany got snow bombed and Paris basically shut down, including the airport. Snow was even reported in Rome and the Island of Capri. Even Miami is having the coldest December on record.

Here’s another prediction that’s gone down the toilet. It seems that all those predictions of massive sea-level rise are so much BS, too. From I Hate the Media we get this one “About those global sea level predictions: Never mind

You can read the whole thing here, but you can see from the chart below that those predictions that have idiots proclaiming that New York City will soon look like Atlantis are a joke.

Based on this I can't fathom why anyone believes in Anthropogenic Global Warming

The warmer predictions and the above chart ARE proof that P.T. Barnum (or whomever said it) was correct when he said “There’s a sucker born every minute.” It seems to me that big Al and the AGW crowd have found most of the suckers on the planet who continue to believe in global warming when it’s blatantly obvious it’s a total crock of BS.

So, next time you hear some BS prediction that we’re all going to die from global warming I’d suggest you do some nosing around before you put that $20 into the Church of Global Warming’s donation basket.

If you’re going to believe forecasts I’d suggest you check out Piers Corbyn or Joe Bastardi, who seem to have a much better record than the warmers who seem to base their predictions upon what they wish would happen instead of reality.

More CO2 Insanity.
