Is everything the AGW cult told us turned out to be false?
“Acidic water may be a sign of healthy corals, says a new study, muddying the waters still further on our understanding of how coral reefs might react to climate change.
Andreas Andersson of the Scripps Institution of Oceanography in San Diego, California, and his colleagues carefully monitored a coral reef in Bermuda for five years, and found that spikes in acidity were linked to increased reef growth.
“At first we were really puzzled by this,” says Andersson. “It’s completely the opposite to what we would expect in an ocean-acidification scenario.””
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!”
“Scientists warned British ministers 22 years ago their planned “dash for diesel” could cause a public health disaster, but were ignored because the then government believed climate change was more important”
“It said that although diesel produced less of the key greenhouse gases (carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide), it produced more of the toxic nitrogen dioxide and particulates that damage health.
It added: “The impact of diesel vehicles on urban air quality is a serious one. Any increase in the proportion of diesel vehicles on urban streets is to be viewed with concern unless problems of particulate matter and nitrogen oxides emissions are addressed.”
The sixth mass extinction on Earth has officially begun according to “scientist” Paul Erlich.
“Since 1500, more than 320 terrestrial vertebrates have become extinct.”
Why did they pick 1500? That predates AGW by at least 250 years.
Paul Erlich has been wrong about everything so far in his life.
“The Population Bomb is a best-selling book written by Stanford University Professor Paul R. Ehrlich and his wife, Anne Ehrlich (who was uncredited), in 1968. It warned of the mass starvation of humans in the 1970s and 1980s due to overpopulation, as well as other major societal upheavals, and advocated immediate action to limit population growth.”
An alternative view : 18,000 new species were discovered in 2014.
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?

Doom!!!! They predicted doom!!!!
San Jose Mercury News (CA) – June 30, 1989 – 3F General News
A senior environmental official at the United Nations, Noel Brown, says entire nations could be wiped off the face of the earth by rising sea levels if global warming is not reversed by the year 2000. Coastal flooding and crop failures would create an exodus of “eco-refugees,” threatening political chaos, said Brown, director of the New York office of the U.N. Environment Program. He said governments have a 10-year window of opportunity to solve the greenhouse effect before it goes beyond human…
