2013 Global Warming Update

This is a cross post from Steve Goddard’s RealScience.


2013 Global Warming Update

  • Temperatures have been below normal in 75% of the US
  • Tornadoes have been below normal
  • Forest fires have been at a record low
  • The permanent corn belt drought is over
  • Arctic ice is very close to normal
  • Antarctic ice is above normal
  • Arctic temperatures are at  a record low for this time of year
  • No global warming for over 17 years
  • Longest period since the Civil War without a major hurricane landfall in the US

Despite the fact that there is zero evidence supporting their position, our apocalyptic friends continue to ramp up the BS – with full support from the White House.

    Nice summary. To a rational, thinking, person, it brings peace of mind.

    But, to a member of the Cult of Climatology (or one of its priests or to someone cynically profiteering, e.g., windmill investors, off its false teachings), it brings angst and anger.

    Humans-Can-Change-Earth’s-Climate devotees have nothing but baby fantasy, infantile, “science” upon which to base their beliefs (or profits). And what do babies do when they don’t get their way?

    Throw a tantrum. That’s what all the screeching and bellowing is about.

    Well, HA, HA, HAAAAA! TRUTH has WON!

    Yeah, yeah, keep on throwing fits and spouting nonsense. It keeps us amused.

    Sea levels are rising faster in recent times. (Jan 11, 2013) Animals continue to go extinct in tropical areas. just a couple quick ones.

    David Stewart: Regarding sea levels, refer to Chambers et al (2012) “Is there a 60-year oscillation in global mean sea level?”

    The abstract reads:
    “We examine long tide gauge records in every ocean basin to examine whether a quasi 60-year oscillation observed in global mean sea level (GMSL) reconstructions reflects a true global oscillation, or an artifact associated with a small number of gauges. We find that there is a significant oscillation with a period around 60-years in the majority of the tide gauges examined during the 20th Century, and that it appears in every ocean basin. Averaging of tide gauges over regions shows that the phase and amplitude of the fluctuations are similar in the North Atlantic, western North Pacific, and Indian Oceans, while the signal is shifted by 10 years in the western South Pacific. The only sampled region with no apparent 60-year fluctuation is the Central/Eastern North Pacific. The phase of the 60-year oscillation found in the tide gauge records is such that sea level in the North Atlantic, western North Pacific, Indian Ocean, and western South Pacific has been increasing since 1985-1990. Although the tide gauge data are still too limited, both in time and space, to determine conclusively that there is a 60-year oscillation in GMSL, the possibility should be considered when attempting to interpret the acceleration in the rate of global and regional mean sea level rise. “

    Hmm… so scientists are in disagreement? Maybe we should check their political affiliations. So what is the lay-person to believe? I read scientists discussion on these matters in chat sessions and there is very heated debate on global warming still going on.
