November 2014 – 30% of Canadian Stations Were in the Coldest 5 Tmin

Filed under: Canada,Environment Canada Data,Temperature — sunshinehours1 @ 9:48 AM
Tags: , ,

Using November Tmin data from Environment Canada’s monthly summaries.

I used the following filter. There had to be 25 years of data. And there had to be data in 2014.

420 stations fit that criteria.

For 122 of those stations, November 2014 was in the top 5 coldest.

So, for example. 108 MILE HOUSE ABEL LAKE has 27 rows of data, and 2014 is ranked as the 4th coldest.

Mastodons Killed By Climate Change: They Froze To Death

Filed under: Cold Kills,Mockery,Morons — sunshinehours1 @ 8:52 PM
Tags: , ,

“Despite popular belief that North American mastodons were hunted to extinction by Ice Age humans, a new Canadian-led study is claiming that the prehistoric beasts simply froze to death.

“To think of scattered populations of Ice Age people with primitive technology driving huge animals to extinction, to me is almost silly,” said Grant Zazula, chief paleontologist for the Yukon Territory and the study’s lead author.

What the research found was that mastodons died out in the Yukon and Alaska long before humans were even on the scene. Not only that, but northern mastodons died out a full 65,000 years before their cousins in warmer climes to the south.”

Warmer Winters Saves Lives

Filed under: Cold Kills,UK — sunshinehours1 @ 9:13 AM
Tags: ,

The lowest ever number of winter deaths was recorded last year, official figures for England and Wales show.

An estimated 18,200 excess winter deaths occurred in 2013-14, the lowest number since records began in 1950-51.

Last winter was notably warmer than in previous years and had a relatively mild flu season which contributed to the lower number of deaths.”

Peer-Review Scam

Filed under: AGW is a Cult,Journal Papers — sunshinehours1 @ 11:28 AM
Tags: , ,

” In the past 2 years, journals have been forced to retract
more than 110 papers in at least 6 instances
of peer-review rigging. What all these
cases had in common was that researchers
exploited vulnerabilities in the publishers’
computerized systems to dupe editors into
accepting manuscripts, often by doing their
own reviews.”
