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!”

AGW Cult Kills

Filed under: Diesel,Mockery,Moose,Morons — sunshinehours1 @ 12:22 PM
Tags: , ,

“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.”

6th Mass Extinction … or … 18,000 new species in 2014

Filed under: Mockery — sunshinehours1 @ 10:45 AM
Tags: ,

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.

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?

25ht Anniversary of Global Warming Doom Prediction

Filed under: Mockery,Morons — sunshinehours1 @ 10:58 AM

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…

Extreme Weather Alert – Saskatchewan

Filed under: Mockery,Morons — sunshinehours1 @ 9:23 PM
Tags: , , ,

“The province of Saskatchewan experienced extreme hardship during the Great Depression of the 1930s.

Grasshoppers, hail and drought destroyed millions of acres of wheat. The drought caused massive crop failures, and Saskatchewan became known as a dust bowl.

The term “Dirty Thirties” described the prairies, creating pessimistic perceptions and negative stereotypes about life in Saskatchewan.

In 1928, the net FARMING income was $363 million; by 1933, it dropped to $11 million; and by 1937, two-thirds of the farm population of Saskatchewan was destitute.

Relief costs for the Saskatchewan government escalated to $62 million, which was higher than its total revenues. At least 250,000 people left the prairie provinces between 1931 and 1941.

BBC: Heatwaves “More Likely” claim is ruined by the data

Filed under: BBC,HADCET,Mockery,Morons — sunshinehours1 @ 11:35 AM
Tags: , , ,

Paul Homewood discusses BBC claims that Heatwaves are more likely due to climate change. And because 2014 was the “hottest” year.

So I decided to look at the HADCET MAXTEMP data.

Not the average. The maximum.

I then arbitrarily set the heatwave boundary at 25C.

And then calculated the number of days over 25 and the longest stretch (ie Heatwave).

Guess what? 2014 barely ranks. Only 8 days above 25.  1911 had 29! (See large table at bottom for 25C heatwaves)

What if I set the Heatwave definition at 30C? There are only 8 years that have days over 30C.

1976 is the winner. And 1976 was 39 years ago! (Corrected from 30)

The 30C days and temps.

“1976-07-01″ “1976-07-02″ “1976-07-03″ “1976-07-04″ “1976-07-05″ “1976-07-06″ “1976-07-07″
“30.6” “31.8” “33.2” “31.4” “31.4” “31.6” “30.4”
