So Much for the Methane Bomb

It appears that there is no danger from methane in the arctic.

[N]ew research led by Princeton University researchers and published inThe ISME Journal in August suggests that, thanks to methane-hungry bacteria, the majority of Arctic soil might actually be able to absorb methane from the atmosphere rather than release it. Furthermore, that ability seems to become greater as temperatures rise.

Halfway to Hell – What a Beautiful Summer!

I am having an absolutely beautiful summer. Sunny. Hot. Swimming every day (almost). Bike riding.

The AGW fanatics say were are halfway to hell. 

“The New Scientist magazine has issued a dire warning about global warming: the climate has warmed to the point where it’s now halfway towards what scientists claim is dangerous global warming. “It’s the outcome the world wants to avoid, but we are already halfway there,” according to the New Scientist. “All but one of the main trackers of global surface temperature are now passing more than 1 °C of warming relative to the second half of the 19th century” which is halfway to the 2 degrees Celsius of warming the United Nations constitutes as dangerous warming.”

I say “If this is halfway to hell I’ll take a double helping!”

Nanaimo Tmax from 1947 to 2015

Every once in a while I visit the data for the weather station closest to my hometown on the west coast of Canada.

Today I am looking at daily TMAX data  from Nanaimo Airport (1947 – 2015).

1987 was the warmest year (1958 was 2nd warmest FYI) . 1955 was the coldest They are shown as the orange and blue lines.

Here I have graphed all the available data in the style I usually use for Sea Ice data.

2015 is in red. There are gaps because Environment Canada doesn’t seem to care.

Notice that temps can fluctuate by 20C for the same day in different years.

Ponder this … why can we humans (and crops and animals)  adapt to 20C swings but we can’t adapt to a 1C change over 100 years?

The East Germans Have Successfully Take Over German Climate Policy

Filed under: AGW is a Cult,Coal,Germany,Mockery,Morons — sunshinehours1 @ 11:23 AM
Tags: , , ,

What was once launched as a – well-intentioned – green energy revolution has now mutated into a giant VEB [i.e. East German state company]. In Gabriel’s system electricity production is no longer determined by demand – as is usual in a market economy. It is not demand that determines supply – but the subsidy billions. Produced is only what wind and solar power and feed-in tariffs expensively allow, not what the public and the economy need – cheap energy. In Gabriel’s national energy system there is an ideological distinction between “good” (green) and “evil” (traditional) energy. Therefore, even profitable and clean gas power plants are switched off – as just happened to Europe’s most modern gas-fired power plant in Irsching. Instead, new subsidy-fed projects are connected to the grid without the necessary network capacity and without the necessary storage technology. For these intermittent power plants, coal power plants have to be kept running as backups, which in turn emit a lot more CO2, which now are also extra-taxed. It all feels like socialist self-perpetuating: this energy revolution cannot be stopped.

Whoa! Earth at 58.24F in 2014 was allegedly hotter than Earth at 62.45F in 1997

Whoa!

The global average temperature of 62.45 degrees Fahrenheit for 1997 was the warmest year on record, surpassing the previous record set in 1995 by 0.15 degrees Fahrenheit

The average temperature for the year [2014] was 0.69°C (1.24°F) above the 20th century average of 13.9°C (57.0°F) [ie 58.24F] , beating the previous record warmth of 2010 and 2005 by 0.04°C (0.07°F).

So-called Scientists Don’t Know The Sun Sets Every Day

Too stupid to spend much time on it … but so stupid it should be noted.

“The scientists set up infrared heaters over the five meadow plots measuring 30 square metres (322 square feet).

Left to run day and night, the heaters burned through more than 128,462 kilowatt hours of electricity.”

Biggest Science Scandal Ever

Tags: ,

“When future generations look back on the global-warming scare of the past 30 years, nothing will shock them more than the extent to which the official temperature records – on which the entire panic ultimately rested – were systematically “adjusted” to show the Earth as having warmed much more than the actual data justified.”

“Two weeks ago, under the headline “How we are being tricked by flawed data on global warming”, I wrote about Paul Homewood, who, on his Notalotofpeopleknowthat blog, had checked the published temperature graphs for three weather stations in Paraguay against the temperatures that had originally been recorded. In each instance, the actual trend of 60 years of data had been dramatically reversed, so that a cooling trend was changed to one that showed a marked warming.”

Nanaimo Tmax from 1913 to 2014 Using Two Overlapping Stations

Every once in a while I visit the data for the weather station closest to my hometown on the west coast of Canada.

Today I am looking at daily data (using KNMI) from Departure Bay (1913 – 1992) and Nanaimo Airport (1947 – 2014).

I’ve summarized the data by monthly mean.

The data does overlap. The first graph is just Tmax. The second graph is Tmax anomaly from the overlap period of 1948 to 1992
