What Al Gore needs of know about global warming

Extreme Weather: What Role Do Humans Play?

Never have so many ignorant people been conned in the name of global distribution of wealth to third world countries than with the non science used to shill global warming.  Al Gore has perpetrated the biggest fraud on mankind with the intent to profit.  If there is any justice he will be taken down with has scam and do some serious time at the gray bar hotel.   That’s my story and I’m sticking to it, I’m J.C.

Tying weather extremes to global warming, or using them as “proof” that warming does not exist, is a popular rhetorical flourish by politicos of all stripes.  But a string of soon-to-be-published papers in the scientific literature finds that despite all hue and cry about global warming and recent extreme weather events, natural climate variability is to blame, says Patrick J. Michaels, a senior fellow with the Cato Institute.

  • The first chink in the armor came back in the fall of 2010, when scientists from the Physical Sciences Division of the Earth System Research Laboratory of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration presented the results of their preliminary investigation.
  • They concluded that “despite this strong evidence for a warming planet, greenhouse gas forcing fails to explain the 2010 heat wave over western Russia. The natural process of atmospheric blocking, and the climate impacts induced by such blocking, are the principal cause for this heat wave.”

What about the past two winters?

  • In a soon-to-be-released paper to appear in Geophysical Research Letters, a team of scientists from the European Center for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts help untangle the causes of the unusual atmospheric circulation patterns that gave rise to the harsh winter of 2009-2010 on both sides of the Atlantic.
  • They find: “neither SST [sea surface temperature] nor sea ice anomalies explain the negative phase of the NAO [North Atlantic Oscillation] during the 2009/10 winter.”

The point is that natural variability can and does produce extreme events on every time scale, from days (e.g., individual storms), weeks (e.g., the Russian heat wave), and months (e.g., the winter of 2009-2010).  Folks would do well to keep this in mind next time global warming is being posited for the weather disaster du jour, says Michaels.

    A simple equation, with inputs of accepted measurements from government agencies, calculates the average global temperatures since 1895 with 88.4% accuracy (87.9% if CO2 is assumed to have no influence). See the equation, links to the source data, an eye-opening graph of the results and how they are derived in the pdfs at http://climaterealists.com/index.php?tid=145&linkbox=true (see especially the pdfs made public on 4/10/10, and 3/10/11).

    The future average global temperature trend that this equation calculates is down.

    This trend is corroborated by the growing separation between the rising CO2 and not-rising agt. From 2001 through Dec, 2010 the atmospheric CO2 increased by 21.8% of the total increase from 1800 to 2001 while the average global temperature has not increased significantly and the average of the five reporting agencies has been declining steeply since the peak of the last El Nino in about March 2010. The 21.8% CO2 increase is the significant measurement, not the comparatively brief time period.

    As the atmospheric CO2 continues to rise in the 21st century while the agt does not, more people will realize that they have been deceived.
