U.S. Winter 2010-2011 Global Warming Tally

Ice Falls from Dallas Cowboys Superbowl Stadium

I was looking at the Weather Channel this morning to see what the weather in Dallas, Texas will be for the Superbowl when I caught 2010-2011 Winter Seasonal Snow Totals to the right of the forecast. I appears that we have a lot more Global Warming this winter than even Al Gore dreamed of. Here’s a few so you can see what I’m talking about.

2010-11 Snowfall
Seasonal Average
88.0 inches
32.5 inches (+ 55.5 inches)
125.6 inches
71.3 inches (+ 54.3 inches)
80.6 inches
26.7 inches (+ 53.9 inches)
63.3 inches
13.6 inches (+ 49.7 inches)
70.7 inches
22.7 inches (+ 48.0 inches)
57.7 inches
12.0 inches (+ 45.7 inches)
56.4 inches
13.7 inches (+ 42.7 inches)
74.6 inches
33.6 inches (+ 41.0 inches)
92.1 inches
52.7 inches (+ 39.4 inches)

Based on Al and other warmers theories, this is all caused by global warming, which is an amazing after-the-fact prediction if I ever saw one.

I suppose this summer when it’s 110 in the shade in Dallas that will be global warming caused, too.  Or, if it doesn’t get hot enough this summer that will be global warming caused. All events will be predicted post-event as is normal with the warmers these days.

You can see how much global warming fell on other cities in the country at the source below.

Snowmageddon Poll Results

Click on it to see a larger version

You can see from the above poll at M.Live.com in Michigan,  asking if the recent snowmageddon was the result of global warming or was merely another winter snowstorm (aka: weather) and it seems the people if Michigan get the fact that it’s not anything unusual, just weather. It seems they’re more astute than some warmer scientist and their media shills who have been proclaiming loudly that no matter what happens (hot, cold or indifferent) it’s caused by global warming, which is CO2 Insanity at its best.

Note that this is as of 2/4/2011 @ 12:34 PM Eastern Standard Time. I may check later today and update any changes in the result.

BBC and Met Office Caught in Ponzi Scam over Winter Forecast Fiasco

By: John O’Sullivan

Disclosed documents implicate two major British institutions in a scam over ‘secret’ forecast of ‘cold’ British winter. Was a senior BBC journalist also framed?

With a winter death toll in the hundreds newly released evidence from the Palace of Westminster under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) proves that the BBC and Met Office are implicated in a conspiracy of global warming lies about a ‘secret’ winter forecast. The original story was covered by Autonomous Minds blog and titled, ‘BBC spins that Met Office got winter right, just kept it secret from public.’

A report by a top BBC environment journalist, Roger Harrabin, implied that the UK’s Coalition government might have blocked the so-called ‘secret cold winter’ forecast.  But is there more to this story than meets the eye and have dark forces in high places conspired to frame the veteran journalist?

Circumstantial Evidence Points to Top Level Conspiracy

The FOIA disclosures released by the Cabinet Office provide circumstantial evidence of a conspiracy to mislead the public but do not explicitly show that the senior BBC journalist instigated the deception. Speculation in the blogosphere is that senior figures behind the scenes were motivated by financial gain to go along with Harrabin’s alleged shenanigans.

Roger Harrabin

It is now widely recognized that both agencies had a strong financial motive to conspire to spin such a monumental lie and mislead the public. Long-range Met Office forecasts based on data from discredited global warming computer models have become a running joke. Meanwhile pension funds of the taxpayer-funded agencies are heavily invested in schemes reliant on belief in the man-made global warming theory. But with three record-breaking cold winters in a row public support for climate legislation has waned.

Nonetheless, Harrabin is now the ‘fall guy’ with his reputation in shreds. It appears from the new evidence that Harrabin had twisted the Met Office statement that there was a  “70 per cent chance of near average or colder conditions” and spun that into the lie that they had secretly forecast an “exceptionally cold early winter.” But is there more here than meets the eye?

Was Roger Harrabin Framed by his Bosses?

The BBC man is portrayed as being the author of his own downfall when he filed a freedom of information act request against the Cabinet Office to substantiate his claim that the 2010/11 would be:

“…..extremely cold……. The truth is it [The Met Office] did suspect we were in for an exceptionally cold early winter, and told the Cabinet Office so in October.”

It sure does appear as if Harrabin, the BBC and the Met Office had together knowingly allowed innuendo to portray the Met Office as victims and the Cabinet Office as sinners for ‘suppressing’ the ‘secret cold winter’ forecast Harrabin first trumpeted.

However, a twist in the tail seems to come from prominent climate analyst, Steve McIntyre who rushed to defend the BBC man saying, “I’ve met Roger Harrabin and am completely confident that he behaved with total integrity in this matter. I am sure that he was misled by his sources.”

McIntyre’s may have a point. It was, after all, Harrabin who first filed the FOIA request. So what is Harrabin’s motive in trying to catch himself in his own ‘lie’?

Carbon Market Collapse Spurs Doomsayers’ Desperation

For a more likely guilty party perhaps we need look no further than those who have so much to gain from the global warming scam: pension fund managers.

In the UK the size of public sector pension liabilities has been estimated at £770bn by the Treasury and £1.18 trillion by actuaries Towers Watson. Peter Tomkins, Commission chairman and Fellow of the Institute of Actuaries, warns that: “The Government has hidden behind costings which pretend that the unfunded schemes earn a return well above [market rates] … Like an unstable Ponzi scheme.”

The carbon trading centers in Europe and Chicago have lately come unstuck, as investors are more keenly aware of the swindles being perpetrated from within. Chicago’s Climate Exchange (CCX) shut down last October and last week the European Climate Exchange was forced to close on fears of widespread fraud.

In on the racket is Chairman of the Met Office, Robert Napier – the same Robert Napier who is Chairman of the Carbon Disclosure Project.

Napier is as hard-core green as it gets. He also ran the UK branch of the WWF- an NGO that managed to infiltrate the UN’s IPCC AR4 Report with a swath of bogus non peer-reviewed WWF papers exaggerating a host of environmental claims.

That cancer of corruption long ago afflicted the BBC that, like the Met Office, is governed by those with a strong financial motive to sustain the beleaguered climate conspiracy.

I first reported on their insidious back story last year (February 12, 2010) in my article, ‘Follow the money: BBC exposed in biggest climate racket on planet‘. We saw how the United Nations green machine via a consortium known as ‘UNEP FI’ has been sucking up trillions of dollars of investments from pension funds around the world.

UNEP FI admits that they engage in a “complex relationship” between environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors, core insurance operations, and the insurance industry.

From that you decipher the root of the problem – a Ponzi pension plan that motivates stakeholders to sing from the same hymn sheet and all augmented from the HQ of global warming alarmism – the United Nations itself.

The BBC pension scheme is just one of 180 major international funds invested in UNEP FI. Then add to the mix the fact that the head of the BBC’s pension fund is none other than Peter Dunscombe – the same Peter Dunscombe who headed the Institutional Investors Group on Climate Change (tied with UNEP FI).

As  BBC Chairman Dunscombe has breached its Charter as a public corporation (1927) mandated to eschew both political and commercial influence answering only to its viewers and listeners. Dunscombe’s contempt for viewers and listeners has thus made his position untenable.

Nonfeasance Now Rises to Level of Criminality

That senior figures at the bombastic BBC and the mystic Met Office declined to confirm or deny Harrabin’s hype despite knowing the truth of the matter now implicates these sanctimonious high priests of climate theology.

Whether Harrabin really is a patsy for Napier and Dunscombe only time will tell. But rest assured, Dunscombe won’t stop pushing the global warming scam because he’s now short of £1billion – from a “black hole” worsened by recent gold-plated payouts to staff; further proving his disdain for taxpayers.

The fact that the National Grid’s Winter Outlook document ( see page 7) itself made no reference to any ‘cold’ forecast by the Met Office and that hundreds of lives have been lost and industries hit with avoidable multi-million losses elevates the issue to one of criminality with two key British government organisations in the dock.

Napier and Dunscombe are now both implicated in charges of malfeasance of public office. The way pro-green Prime Minister Cameron now handles this monumental scandal will show just how debased by the climate change religion he truly is, as the British public increasingly demands that high-level heads must roll.

Global Warming Kills 10,000 Cattle in Vietnam

 

With all this global "warming" perhaps we need a heartier breed of cow?

 

 

Yes, global warming is now visiting Vietnam. You know how when we get hot, we suddenly get all cold, regardless of what the laws of thermodynamics say, the nutball warmers claim this is indeed happening. Udderly ridiculous if you ask me, but watch and you probably will soon see or hear about this being blamed on global warming.

This week’s visitation of global “warming” has now killed about 10,000 cattle in Vietnam. Per the Huffington Post we get this…….

In the latest of a string of mass animal deaths, 10,000 cows and buffalo have died in Vietnam.

Vietnam’s Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development confirmed the news this week that more than 10,000 cows and buffalos died nationwide due to harsh weather conditions.

Cattle have been dying throughout Vietnam, which has had a particularly intense winter. The northern mountainous province of Cao Bang was hardest hit with 2,260 dead cattle, per Thanh Nien News. Some have said the number of total dead cattlemay be as high as 13,000.

 

Nothing mysterious in this case. It wasn’t some mysterious virus or something put into the air by contrails or HAARP. Just plain old cold and we now have frozen beef on the hoof.

As an aside, it was -46F in Frostbite, I mean International Falls, Minnesota yesterday, must be more of that global warming. I wonder how the bikinis and suntan lotion are selling there this week? Pass the Coppertone please! More CO2 Insanity.

Post Event Forcast by MET Office?

 

This one made me laugh. It seems now that the UK has been bombarded by their very own Snowmegeddon 2, that the infamous MET Office is trying to get everyone to believe that they indeed forecast all this snow but kept it a secret.

Per the Telegraph…….

In October the forecaster privately warned the Government – with whom it has a contract – that Britain was likely to face an extremely cold winter.

It kept the prediction secret, however, after facing severe criticism over the accuracy of its long-term forecasts.

The Met Office eventually issued a public warning about the early onset of winter a month later, just days before snow and ice covered much of Britain and temperatures plummeted to the lowest on record.

OK, I wasn’t there, but I’m a suspicious person and if you believe this one I have a nice golden colored bridge in San Francisco I’ll gladly sell to you for $50 billion dollars.

Even if true as claimed then someone should be fired for not publicizing this as evidenced by all the problems an unprepared Britain experienced.

1-3-11: Global Warming Hits Las Vegas

Yes that snow from global warming has now hit Las Vegas, Nevada, USA. You can watch the above video to see it for yourself.

More heat causing cold in a place that is in the desert and is usually hot, regardless what time of year it is.

More CO2 Insanity. Need I say more?

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.

Global warming visits Birmingham, Alabama

NOAA MAP PROBABILITY OF SNOW IN US FOR CHRISTMAS

Today on Christmas Day, we have a case of “y’all watch this!” from Mother Nature. No Budweiser or moonshine was required before this happened. Today we have snow in Birmingham, Alabama.

From WBRC, Fox Channel 6 we get this……

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) – People across north Alabama woke up Christmas morning to find more than presents under their Christmas trees… they also found snow.

Snow began falling just before sunrise Saturday in northwest Alabama and quickly spread east across the northern portion of the state.  People as far south as Montevallo reported seeing snow flakes. Snow was accumulating in many areas around the Birmingham area, especially in locations north of Interstate 20.

As you can see from the NOAA map they goofed as it snowed south of where they had <5% probability. Here’s what they had to say about it……

Each year, as Christmas Day approaches, people across Central Alabama begin dreaming of a White Christmas. However, historical records do not hold much hope for a truly classical White Christmas, that is, snow falling and measurable amounts on the ground on Christmas Day.

Cullman, Ala. (Dec. 25, 2010, MyFoxAL.com)

Cullman, Ala. (Dec. 25, 2010, MyFoxAL.com)

Looks like we had the White Christmas to me.  Another case of that global warming heat creating snow. Kind of like boiling water, then standing there waiting for it to freeze.

White Christmas in South – Thanks global warming!

Well, I was going to hang it up for the night but I was perusing the news and came across this news item from Fox about how the southern United States will probably be getting a “White Christmas.” In honor of that frozen white stuff that is supposedly caused by global warming I decided to put up Bing Crosby singing the song.

It’s called weather, but the warmers will scream it’s all caused by global warming. Then next year if there’s no snow, they’ll claim that’s caused by global warming, too, because in their fit of CO2 Insanity everything causes global warming, even those cookies and milk you leave for Santa Claus cause it. The cookies use energy from coal-fired power plants to bake, and the cows that make the milk fart methane gas yanno. Lord knows what they’ll  claim the reindeer do.

You can read about the upcoming snow bomb in the south at the source below. Y’all have a Merry Christmas and y’all stay warm now, hear?
