Climate & Extreme Weather News #71 (October 1st-8th 2017)


 

 

Note: This channel does a great job at archiving global weather events, but it’s data on global warming is false – this person still beLIEves in the climate change propaganda. I’ve made comments on his channel pointing toward the Global Cooling and Grand Solar Minimum researchers data and was thoroughly attacked by the global warming trolls and the gatekeepers of the false data.

Take note of how he/she glossed over the Montana blizzard in the first week of October, gave it mention but no virtually video coverage – just one short clip. At best the region may get a dusting of snow in early Autumn – NOT inches of snow.

NSIDC Visually Eliminates Record Arctic Sea Ice Gains Autumn 2017 (467) ~ Adapt 2030


 

 

With the Autumn 207 Arctic season breaking all records through the satellite ear, which the IPCC uses to prove global warming, now its become their Achilles Heal. The most observable ice growth in the Months of September and October. THE NSIDC is now complicit in trying to cover the gains by introducing new measuring methods, not the 2 standard deviations, which it has done since the beginning, now they switched to Quintile and InterDecile Ranges to make it appear visually that ice is still not anywhere near the normal levels, when in fact its broken all records in the satellite era. https://nsidc.org/greenland-today/

Volcanic Eruptions to Cool Earth, Record Arctic Sea Ice Growth Happening ~ Adapt2030


 

Vanuatu evacuates an island due to volcanic eruption, Bali evacuates villages due to volcanic eruption, Sinabung erupts, but what they dont tell you is that every Grand Solar Minimum there are massive eruptions that destroy global crop production. Now with record Arctic sea ice growth in 2017, the most ever recorded in September, the global warming crowd is just hoping for an eruption so they can blame Earths cooling temperatures on the volcano, not the Sun, which is the true driver of our climate.

Public not being told the whole truth about global warming


41q2bx0gdbxl-_sx300_

11th July 2008

By: Kelvin Kemm

In 2006, there were predictions in the media that global warming would cause 2007 to be the hottest year on record.

Now think about it, what have you read in the media in 2008 about this? Well, nothing actually. Why?

Well, the answer is simple – because 2007 turned out to be the coolest year recorded for the last 30 years. This, the public was not told.

The public was also not told that, since the warm year of 1998, there has been continuous cooling. What the public is told is that, during the twentieth century, there was a global temperature increase of 0,6 oC.

This is true, but what is left out is that most of the warming took place from 1920 to 1940 and that global temperature fell from 1940 to 1970, prompting announcements in the mid 1970s that a global ice age was about to pounce on us.

During all this, the carbon dioxide content of the atmosphere continued to rise. In fact, atmospheric carbon dioxide (C02) continued to increase after 1940, while atmospheric cooling was taking place. Should that not make people think a bit?

Should people not ponder the issue of whether the theory that man-made C02 is responsible for global warming is actually correct?

If the composition of the atmosphere is compared to the height of the 28-storey Reserve Bank building in Pretoria then the increase in C02 over the last century is less than the thickness of the tiles in the foyer, but we are told that this increase is the cause of great trouble, and that we are all going to fry and die.

In the meantime, other computer models of the climate change game are now predicting that there will be no change in global temperature over the next ten years. I am one of the first people to say: “Watch it, do not trust the computer models because the earth climate system is so complex that it is extremely difficult to produce computer models that are very accurate.” They are a ‘work in progress’, so to speak. Nevertheless, these models are not predicting a warming trend.

Proponents of dramatic climate change caused by man-made C02 continue to ignore other realities. For example, it is well known that, centuries ago, the Vikings had settlements in Greenland and that they grew crops such as grapes.

The archaeologists have unearthed the evidence. It is also known from the historical record that the Viking settlements started to cool and freeze, year by year, until the last supply ship to visit the settlements did so in 1410.

After that, the settlements died out, and it appears that this was due to the advancing cold. Denmark did not return to Greenland until 1721.

That warm period, which permitted Vikings to grow grapes in Greenland, is well documented and is known as the Medieval Warm Period. It was followed by a cooling trend known as the Little Ice Age. Its coldest point is known as the Maunder Minimum.

During this period of cooling, the river Thames, in London, froze and there are paintings from the period showing people skating on the Thames and having ox braais on the frozen river. All this happened without any influence from C02 produced by people.

Indications are that the global warming and cooling trends fit a 1 500-year cycle, and that this cycle is induced by a varying activity of the giant nuclear reactor that is our Sun. Even a small variation in energy output by a ball of fire as large as our sun is a massive energy variation, certainly enough to affect the earth’s climate.

This happens not only due to direct warming, but also due to cloud seeding by nuclear particles emitted from the sun, but we do not want to get too complicated now.

Other realities are that the polar bears are not dying out – the Canadian polar bear polar-bears-2population has increased by more than 20% over the last decade. The shrinking ice cap at the top of Mount Kilimanjaro is not a result of global warming – it is, in all probability, due to people cutting down the trees at the base of the mountain. These trees used to supply moisture into the airflow that rose up the side of the mountain and which then condensed out as ice. Now, no trees, no water, and so no more ice.

There is no warming mechanism at the height of that mountain that can lead to ice melting. It is time for the general population to think a great deal more deeply about global warming and climate change claims, particularly since panic reactions by governments will lead to economic hardship for citizens.

The good news is that, historically, the periods of global warming have always been periods of great economic progress and health and welfare for people.

The fiddling with temperature data is the biggest science scandal ever


New data shows that the “vanishing” of polar ice is not the result of runaway global warming

The “vanishing” of polar ice (and the polar bears) has become a poster-child for warmists. Photo: ALAMY

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.

This was only the latest of many examples of a practice long recognised by expert observers around the world – one that raises an ever larger question mark over the entire official surface-temperature record.

Following my last article, Homewood checked a swathe of other South American weather stations around the original three. In each case he found the same suspicious one-way “adjustments”. First these were made by the US government’s Global Historical Climate Network (GHCN). They were then amplified by two of the main official surface records, the Goddard Institute for Space Studies (Giss) and the National Climate Data Center (NCDC), which use the warming trends to estimate temperatures across the vast regions of the Earth where no measurements are taken. Yet these are the very records on which scientists and politicians rely for their belief in “global warming”.

Homewood has now turned his attention to the weather stations across much of the Arctic, between Canada (51 degrees W) and the heart of Siberia (87 degrees E). Again, in nearly every case, the same one-way adjustments have been made, to show warming up to 1 degree C or more higher than was indicated by the data that was actually recorded. This has surprised no one more than Traust Jonsson, who was long in charge of climate research for the Iceland met office (and with whom Homewood has been in touch). Jonsson was amazed to see how the new version completely “disappears” Iceland’s “sea ice years” around 1970, when a period of extreme cooling almost devastated his country’s economy.

One of the first examples of these “adjustments” was exposed in 2007 by the statistician Steve McIntyre, when he discovered a paper published in 1987 by James Hansen, the scientist (later turned fanatical climate activist) who for many years ran Giss. Hansen’s original graph showed temperatures in the Arctic as having been much higher around 1940 than at any time since. But as Homewood reveals in his blog post, “Temperature adjustments transform Arctic history”, Giss has turned this upside down. Arctic temperatures from that time have been lowered so much that that they are now dwarfed by those of the past 20 years.

Homewood’s interest in the Arctic is partly because the “vanishing” of its polar ice (and the polar bears) has become such a poster-child for those trying to persuade us that we are threatened by runaway warming. But he chose that particular stretch of the Arctic because it is where ice is affected by warmer water brought in by cyclical shifts in a major Atlantic current – this last peaked at just the time 75 years ago when Arctic ice retreated even further than it has done recently. The ice-melt is not caused by rising global temperatures at all.

Of much more serious significance, however, is the way this wholesale manipulation of the official temperature record – for reasons GHCN and Giss have never plausibly explained – has become the real elephant in the room of the greatest and most costly scare the world has known. This really does begin to look like one of the greatest scientific scandals of all time.

‘Breathtaking’ adjustments to Arctic temperature record. Is there any ‘global warming’ we can trust?


Here’s a video that you absolutely must see.

Not, I hasten to warn you, because it’s exciting, well-produced or informative; rather, because of the fascinating light it sheds on the debate about global warming in general and also, in particular, on the ongoing controversy about whether organisations like NASA and NOAA are playing fast and loose with the world’s temperature data sets.

According to the video’s creator and star, Dr Kevin Cowtan, the latter suggestion is a nonsense. Using charts of South American and global temperatures, he painstakingly refutes suggestions by Christopher Booker and also (though tragically I don’t get a mention) by me that there is anything suspect, let alone corrupt or fraudulent, in the adjustments that NASA and NOAA have been making to the raw temperature data from weather stations around the world.

If you stumbled on it by accident on YouTube I think you’d be quite persuaded. Cowtan’s tone is soft and reasonable; the science, as he presents it, seems to stack up: a) there are perfectly valid reasons for these adjustments, to do with homogenising the raw data when it looks out of kilter with neighbouring but possibly more accurate weather stations, and with the changing nature of measuring equipment and b) the adjustments are, in any case, minor – altering the raw data by no more than 3 per cent.

When you Google “Dr Kevin Cowtan” he appears reassuringly neutral in this affair. He works in the Department of Chemistry at the University of York, his current speciality being X-ray crystallography. A proper scientist, then, with no dog in this fight. Or so it looks until you scroll down a bit and see that his other area of research is “climate science.”

My climate science research focuses primarily on problems which are relevant to the public understanding of climate science. With my colleague Robert Way I have been investigating biases in historical temperature record from weather stations. Our primary work concerns temperature change over the past two decades. The main temperature record providers show a slowdown in the rate of warming over this period, however when biases in the temperature record are taken into account, we find that part of the slowdown disappears.

I am also involved in climate science communication, and am contributing to a massive online course run by the University of Queensland. I can offer undergraduate projects in this area for students who are interested to develop science communication skills.

So, not a neutral party after all then, but someone who depends for part of his livelihood on the lavish funding available in academe for those who promote the climate “consensus.” Perhaps, in the interests of full disclosure, he might have mentioned this detail on his YouTube biography. But I mean that only as a very mild and largely inconsequential criticism. What matters is not what Cowtan does for a living (“the motive fallacy”) but whether or not he has got his facts right.

And according to this counterblast from Dave Burton – a US computer programmer, sea level specialist and IPCC expert reviewer on AR5 –  he hasn’t.

Burton’s key point is this: where Cowtan claims that all NOAA’s adjustments have done is increased warming by a modest 3 per cent, in actuality they have increased it by 35 per cent. So, far from Cowtan’s assessment that these adjustments are “inconsequentially tiny”, they are in fact quite massively distorting.

Might it be that they reached such wildly different conclusions by using different data? Er, no. Burton reached his conclusions by creating a spreadsheet with decadal data digitized from the exact graph used in Cowtan’s video.

Now I appreciate that in the context of the broader climate debate this might seem a trivial dispute. But I’ve been at this game long enough to be able to assure you that these faux rebuttals like the one offered by Cowtan are absolutely integral to the ongoing survival of the alarmist ‘consensus.’

As far as the warmist propaganda machine is concerned it really doesn’t matter two hoots whether or not Cowtan has got his facts right. What matters is that whenever the inconvenient subject of doctored temperature data crops up again, the alarmists have their ready-made get out. From a proper actual scientist. So he must know – right?

You can be sure that, if it hasn’t already, Cowtan’s dodgy rebuttal video will soon be linked to by the usual warmist sockpuppeteers in the comment threads below every relevant article. What none of them will mention, of course, is the Burton counter-rebuttal to the Cowtan rebuttal. Integrity has never been these people’s strong point. It’s winning the propaganda war that counts.

Meanwhile, in the real world, the case for a fraud trial against the climate data record gatekeepers seems to be getting stronger and stronger.

Paul Homewood, the blogger who noticed the discrepancies with the Paraguay temperature records, has now turned his attention to the Arctic region. His conclusion after studying the charts before and after is that the scale and geographic range of these adjustments is “breathtaking.”

In nearly every Arctic station from Greenland in the West to Siberia in the East, the data has been adjusted to make the warm period in the 1930s look cooler than it actually was. This, of course, has the effect of making the Twentieth Century warming look much more dramatic than the raw data would suggest.

Will this scandalous apparent evidence-tampering ever get much coverage in the mainstream media? It certainly ought to. Think about it: if Homewood (and Anthony Watts and Steven Goddard, et al) are correct, then what it essentially means is that the entire global warming scare has been sold to us on a false prospectus.

But it won’t, of course, because the mainstream media – in large part, at least – remains wedded to the Man Made Global Warming orthodoxy and therefore only really likes to run stories that prove how totally wrong, evil, and swivel-eyed climate change deniers are.

For example, this story in Nature, which sought to explain away one of the most embarrassing problems the warmist camp has been suffering of late: the abject failure of their fancy computer models to have predicted the planet’s failure to warm since 1998.

According to the lead author of this widely reported study, one Jochem Marotzke of the Max Planck Institute, it dealt a fatal blow to the sceptics’ case that the warmists’ computer models were a waste of space.

Unfortunately for Marotzke, his case has now, in turn, been demolished in this article by Nic Lewis.

Professor Gordon Hughes, one of the statisticians who reviewed and confirmed Lewis’s findings has commented thus:

“The statistical methods used in the [Marotzke] paper are so bad as to merit use in a class on how not to do applied statistics. All this paper demonstrates is that climate scientists should take some basic courses in statistics and Nature should get some competent referees.”

Damning indeed.

But here’s a prediction. The rebuttal won’t receive nearly the coverage that Marotzke’s original inept paper did.

Exxon to World: Drop Dead


Ford_to_City_Exxon_Spoof v2FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
31 March 2014

Contact: Steve Kretzmann, Oil Change International, steve@priceofoil.org, 202-497-1033

Exxon to World:  Drop Dead
Oil Company Believes World Will Fail To Limit Climate Change to Safe Levels

WASHINGTON, DC —ExxonMobil released its carbon asset risk reports on Monday, in response to investor demand.

“If you haven’t yet had the pleasure of reading these reports, let me offer you a shorter version: Exxon to World: Drop Dead,” said Stephen Kretzmann, Executive Director of Oil Change International.

Exxon’s report, “Energy and Carbon – Managing the Risks” flatly states “we do not anticipate society being able to supplant traditional carbon- based forms of energy with other energy forms, such as renewables, to the extent needed to meet this carbon budget”.

Oil Change International Executive Director Stephen Kretzmann’s responded with the following:

“ExxonMobil is saying it doesn’t believe governments will keep their internationally agreed commitments to limit climate change to safe levels. This should not come as any surprise. Of course they don’t believe governments are going to address climate change adequately — they are in fact betting billions on the failure of climate and clean energy policy.  And they’re shoring up their bet by buying politicians and spending millions to sow doubt and promote inaction.

Still, these report represent the beginning of the next phase of the climate fight.  Exxon is no longer ignoring or denying climate science.  Now it is denying that the American people and people around the world have the will and the power to change our futures and save our children.  

They are wrong and we look forward to proving it to them.”

Together with the Other 98% and Environmental Action, Oil Change International runs the “Exxon Hates Your Children” campaign, targeting the billions in government subsidies Exxon and other fossil fuel companies receive each year. More can be found at http://exxonhatesyourchildren.com

Ed. Note: Quantum Energy Generators, Keshe Foundation and others are developing Tesla tech prototypes to deliver “free” energy built by “the people and for the people”. NO corporations, no more government suppression to stop the release of technology that should’ve been realized over a century ago. This technology will free the world from poverty, help put an end to  debt slavery and bring a whole new paradigm of living for humanity. EXXON go screw yourself! Your industry’s arrogance, extortion and environmental destruction are grounds enough to charge CEO’s with crimes against humanity and nature for the devastation of the planet and 100 years of forcing us to pay for dirty electricity, when there’s been a better alternative all along. Shame on you…

Rapid Plankton Decline Puts The Ocean’s Food Web In Peril


 

By Jeff Spross on November 26, 2013

Springtime blooms of plankton — microscopic sea creatures that are the foundation of most marine ecosystems — are at the lowest levels ever seen off New England.

 

The dramatic decline happened in the North Atlantic in first half of this year, scientists with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) told the AP. It also coincided with sea surface temperatures from the mid-Atlantic to the Gulf of Maine that were the third-warmest on record, after an all-time high in 2012. Further south in the Atlantic there was more cooling, but overall warming throughout the oceans remains on a steady upward trend.

 

The result is earlier warming events in the oceans over the past few years and NOAA scientists suspect the changes are affecting plant and animal reproduction.
“The first six months of 2013 can be characterized by new extremes in the physical and biological environment,” said Kevin Friedland, a marine scientist with NOAA.

 

Phytoplankton — the most basic form of plankton — are a massive part of the planet’s overall ecosystems: they account for roughly half the organic matter produced on Earth, produce half the oxygen in the atmosphere, draw carbon dioxide out of the air, and serve as the foundational food source for most of the oceans’ food webs.

 

The dropoff in the springtime plankton is also affecting the population levels of larger zooplankton– small marine invertebrates — that feed on the blooms.

 

Scientists have found that rising ocean temperatures change the interaction of different layers of water. As a result, fewer nutrients circle up from the lower layers to serve as food for the phytoplankton in the upper layers. Researchers suspect this is a big part of a massive 40 percent decline they’ve observed in phytoplankton levels since 1950. In fact, roughly 90 percent of global warming’s total effect goes into heating the oceans.

 

Research also shows that the retreat of arctic ice is leading to earlier phytoplankton blooms in that region of the ocean as well. The spring blooms are coming as much as 50 days earlier than they were a mere decade ago. That risks the collapse of larger food webs, as the reproductive cycles of many marine animals’ are timed to the blooms.

 

 

Extreme Weather Phenomena Escalating Worldwide


Published on May 7, 2013

SuspectSky SuspectSky

Over the past year the world has experienced unprecedented and bizarre weather phenomena – from record breaking heat and cold to increasing earthquake activity worldwide. It’s not just global warming, but rather, a system wide surge of strange weather activity.

This video compiles extreme earth changes and weather events, with footage including meteors entering the atmosphere, sinkholes opening up worldwide, the discovery of dark lightning, increasing volcano activity, and a uniquely unusual UFO sighting in Ireland.

While this video does NOT imply extreme weather is a result of human activity – it does suggest that climate change is real and occurring all around us. Whatever the source, one may ask – will extreme weather define our world’s history for decades to come?

 

‘Global warming’ was always far too important to be left to the scientists


Now that global warming is completely unravelling, I want to elaborate on a point I made a few blogposts back about the role of humanities graduates in this great debate.

On the face of it, their record isn’t good. Some of the most influential promulgators of climate nonsense have been arts graduates – among them Bryony Worthington (the FoE activist turned peer responsible for the Climate Change Act), the BBC’s Roger Harrabin and a fair few of the Guardian’s 2,800-strong Environment Department. I think future historians – looking back on this period of mass hysteria in which so many people were persuaded by and so much expensive, damaging policy was based on the largest confection of lies in junk science history – could put together a reasonably persuasive thesis that it was mainly the fault of scientist-manque arts graduates too easily impressed by men in white lab coats.

Against that, though, you’d have to set people like me and the Booker. Neither of us – as the Warmists like endlessly to remind us and taunt us – has a science degree; yet we’ve dedicated most of the latter part of our careers towards exposing the scam. And we’ve done so with confidence not because we’re scientists but, rather, precisely because we’re not scientists. I don’t want to upset the many scientists here present who make such fascinating and enlightening contributions to this blog, for which I am always (well unless they’re trolls from the UEA….) extremely grateful. But as I tried to explain the other day in my brief spat with Wattsy, this debate isn’t mainly about “the science” and it never was mainly about “the science.”

This is something most of my journalistic contemporaries – such the one whose irksome private correspondence I quoted in the first version of this blog before someone persuaded me this was dishonourable and that I should take it down – have failed to understand. Even now, I think, in the journalistic mainstream, the view remains that “climate change” is a scientific debate about man’s influence on global warming. And it so isn’t. What it really is is just another proxy conflict in the culture wars: between those who believe in limited government, low taxation, minimal regulation, personal responsibility, free markets and liberty on the one hand; and on the other those who believe in an ever-enlarging state (perhaps even to the point of One World Government), high tax, more regulation, and rule by an elite of technocrats and “experts” on the other. I argue this, as those of you who have read it will know, in Watermelons.

In his latest column the excellent Lawrence Solomon makes a similar point about scientists versus historians:

Many blame the public’s confusion over global warming on a widespread ignorance of science. A scientific grounding wouldn’t hurt but it also wouldn’t help much – few laymen, no matter how well informed, could be expected to follow the arcane climate change calculations that specialist scientists wield.

The much better explanation for the public’s confusion lies in a widespread ignorance of history, not least by scientists. Any child can understand that the Romans conquered the world when temperatures were warmer than today, that the Dutch invented the ice skates during the Little Ice Age five hundred years ago, and that melting glaciers off Newfoundland a century ago produced the iceberg that sunk the Titanic.

He’s dead right. We all have our part to play in the debate, humanities and science graduates alike. Our gravest mistake in this particular one, I think, has been to put far too much faith in scientists as arbiters of ultimate truth. We have elevated them to the status of priest, almost – as you can hear, for example, in the broadcaster’s reverential tone on the BBC every time he or she invokes the word “scientists”.

One of m’learned commenters (remind me and I’ll H/T you) traces the problem back to CP Snow’s 1959 Two Cultures lecture. Ever since arts graduates – note, eg, its effects on Melvyn Bragg’s career – have thought meanly of themselves for not having studied a proper science degree.

For years, I must say, I felt much the same about my own mere English Literature degree.

But not any more. Climategate and its aftermath changed all that. It’s not a science degree you need to negotiate the complexities of this tottering edifice of propaganda, tortured data, lies, misinformation, political wrangling, rampant greed, corporatist manoeuvring and establishment cover-ups: it’s the mental clarity you develop translating the Battle of Maldon, the powers of endurance you develop from reading the Countess of Pembroke’s Arcadia, and the critical nous you acquire while trying to understand what the hell Spenser was on about when he wrote the Faerie Queene.

Global Geoengineering Fueling Venus Syndrome


February 27, 2013

venus_magellan

What Is “Venus Syndrome”?

Venus syndrome” is not a metaphor, it is a scientific scenario. The term should be self explanatory, but just to be clear, Venus syndrome is a scenario in which climate and atmospheric feedback loops are triggered that can’t be switched off. Under this scenario, as greenhouse gasses build up, and cause planetary warming, yet more greenhouse gasses are released which causes still more warming. This trajectory does not end in a balmy tropical resort Earth, but rather a planet that is closer to hell. Like Venus, Earth would become a pressure cooking inferno with virtually no life.

Feb 26, 2013 Dane Wigington

There are a great many contributing factors already pushing Earth toward this scenario, but one stands out above the rest. Based on all available data, if the ongoing global geoengineering programs are allowed to continue, “Venus syndrome” will be the likely end result for our planet, and sooner than almost any can imagine. Any that confuse this information with the rhetoric and hypocrisy of Al Gore and his carbon credit scams is making a mistake. What we face is real and has little to do the long list of self proclaimed “environmentalists” and “environmental” groups who have all chosen to turn a blind eye to the most dire and immediate challenge faced by all life on Earth short of nuclear catastrophe, global aerosol geoengineering.

But Venus Is Much Closer To The Sun, Earth Could Never End Up In The Same State, Right?

Wrong. Venus has many more similarities to our Earth than most realize. Venus is close to the same size, and a similar composition to Earth. Though there is still ongoing debate, the most recent science data suggests that Venus once had an atmosphere and oceans, not unlike Earth. All things being equal, Venus would not be so much warmer than Earth, but something went horribly wrong on Venus.

So What Happened?

Venus underwent a “runaway greenhouse effect”. There are a number of likely contributors to this effect which are similar in nature to what is taking place on Earth at this time. Like the sun shining through the glass on a greenhouse with no vents, the thermal energy gets in, but it does not get out. The “balance” that once sustained our planets life support systems are lost. As the scale then tilts to one side, warming, the “runaway effect” begins to feed itself. Once it progresses far enough there is no turning back, no stopping it. In the case of Venus, the average temperatures due to the “runaway greenhouse effect” are over 800 degrees.

What Is Tilting Things So Far Out Of Balance?

Though there are many contributing factors which are negatively effecting Earth’s natural systems at this time, based on all available data one outweighs all others combined, global weather modification/geoengineering programs.

Geoengineering is the “elephant in the room” that is completely ignored or outright denied by nearly all climate change/environmental groups and organizations. It is of course a given that all governmental organizations deny the glaring reality of the ongoing geoengineering programs. This is in spite of the fact that the very same agencies and administration officials are actively proposing global geoengineering programs be implemented immediately, again, as if they have not long since been fully deployed.

Atmospheric saturation with geoengineering nano particles, and the ever more apparent jet stream manipulation with ionosphere heater facilities like HAARP, are literally decimating Earth’s life sustaining systems.

Why Are They Geoengineering If Its So Destructive?

Because they can. Because there is no one to stop them. Because, at least for the short run, geoengineering is a weapon of unimaginable power (until atmosphere implodes from these programs).

Too many people fail to consider that we are not dealing with reason or sanity in regard to those that run these weather/modification weather/warfare programs. This is the same power structure that has detonated over 1800 nuclear weapons around the globe. The same power structure that sprayed its own soldiers with agent orange in Viet Nam. The same power structure that has cavalierly used depleted uranium in ammunition in conflicts around the globe. The same power structure that has routinely done biological testing on innocent civilians again and again, there is no sanity in this equation.

The stated purpose on most geoengineering patents is to deflect a percentage of the suns thermal energy in order to slow global warming.

The reflective (and toxic) metal particulates create artificial cloud cover which increases the Earth’s “albedo” (reflectivity). Aside from the fact that the elements being sprayed are highly toxic, so far so good, right? Mission accomplished? Not exactly. The long and dire list of negative consequences from geoengineering exponentially outweigh any perceived benefit. Ozone depletion, completely disrupted hydrological cycle (drought and deluge), poisoned and sterilized soils and waters, massive resulting forest and species die off, altered wind and ocean currents, triggering of catastrophic climate feedback loops which threaten all life on Earth, to name a few of the consequences.

So let me clarify, as here is the rub; they say geoengineering is nessesary in order to increase the Earths albedo (reflectivity) in order to slow runaway climate change. Available science states Venus already has an albedo over 2 times greater than Earth. Fully 70% of the suns thermal energy is reflected away from Venus due to the albedo of its atmosphere as apposed to less than 30 % for Earth. Venus is very bright in the evening sky due to its already high albedo. Has this high albedo helped Venus cool down? Not at all. Again, the temperatures on the surface of Venus are 800 degrees plus. Hot enough to melt lead. The surface pressure on Venus is nearly 100 times that of Earth.

Clearly there is much more to a life sustaining planet than simply having a more reflective atmosphere.

If “cooling” the planet was truly the primary goal of the geoengineering programs, their method is insane at best. The “pharmaceutical” approach, applying a “cure”  that is exponentially worse than the ailment it was meant to treat. It is increasingly evident that much more straight forward goals are being carried out with the weather modification, weather warfare programs. Ultimate power and control are inevitably at the root of such programs. All available data indicates, if the geoengineering programs continue, this “power” over the weather, and earths inhabitants, will very soon be at the cost of all life on Earth. Geoengineering can and does create large scale cooling events by blotting out the sun on an immense scale and with artificial ice nucleation of clouds and storms, but it comes at the cost of a much worsened warming overall. In addition to the consequences listed above, simply stated, geoengineering particulates and the toxic atmospheric haze they create traps more heat than it deflects. They are making our already dire situation worse by the day.

Where Do We Go From Here?

Geoengineering has already  helped to trigger catastrophic climate feedback mechanisms like methane mass expulsion in the Arctic. Our planet is now changing at blinding speed, and not for the better. All available data makes clear that the climate altering programs have been increasingly ramped up for over 60 years. The Earth and its life sustaining natural systems have been increasingly hampered by these programs, till at this point, the effect of the massive global geoengineering programs are so total that our planet is literally in a “straight jacket”.

Humanity has decimated the biosphere in countless ways, there is no rational argument to deny this fact. This being said, the single greatest decimating factor far, based on all available data, is the ongoing global weather modification/geoengineering programs. A decimated ozone layer, completely disrupted hydrological cycle, altered wind and ocean currents, triggering life threatening climate feedback loops (methane release), the loss of our once blue skies and photosynthesis, and the literal poisoning of all life on Earth from the fallout. This is their “cure” for the climate disruption largely caused by the geoengineering programs to begin with.

It is now becoming ever more difficult for those in power to hide the all to visible global geoengineering programs and the decimation they are causing. The corporate/military/industrial/media complex will soon be much more active in their attempt to spin the reality and horrific effects of these programs. To “sell” them to the public as necessary mitigation for the increasingly destructive weather we are all witness to. The “Weather Channel” will increase their already ongoing propaganda campaign on Febuary 28 with a new series, “Hacking the Planet“. It is important to remember that virtually all major weather modeling and forecasting agencies are now owned/controlled by the same players that are conducting the climate/weather modification programs. Their job is to explain away the ever increasing climate anomalies and disruptions largely caused by the already ongoing geoengineering.

It is the responsibility of each and every one of us to help in the effort to bring the lethal geoengineering programs to light. We must be out in front of the propaganda effort to sell the globally decimating geoengineering programs to the general public. Educate yourself on this dire issue, get credible materials to hand out, and educate others. Examples of information flyers can be found at “geoengineeringwatch.org/ads”. Get a copy of Michael Murphy’s “Why In The World Are They Spraying”, then make copies, and hand them out.

If we can just reach critical mass of public awareness, we have a good chance of stopping the spraying. At that point those who actually carry out these programs would realize they are literally slow-killing themselves and their families along with the rest of us. Many if not most would likely choose not to participate. Public awareness is growing by the day, we must do everything possible to not only maintain, but increase this momentum.

If geoengineering/weather/climate modification is not stopped, and the planet not allowed to respond and recover, available science points to “Venus syndrome” as the likely future for us all.

Antarctic Ice Retreated Thousands Of Feet Per Year During The 19th Century: But today’s warmists ‘tell us that Antarctic ice retreat is due to your SUV’

The Global Warming Lie Gains Momentum


More from SusanRennison.com on the demise of the global warming scam and the rise of extreme climate change and Space Weather news:

Top Swedish Climate Scientist Lennart Bengtsson Says Warming So Small, Not Noticeable Without Meteorologists!
notrickszone.com, 3rd February 2013
A major Swedish online daily has an article about what one of Sweden’s leading climate scientists, Lennart Bengtsson, has to say about the global warming hysteria.

Blogsite Dave’s Musings here has excerpts in English. Here are a few:

We Are Creating Great Anxiety Without It Being Justified…there are no indications that the warming is so severe that we need to panic.

‘The warming we have had the last a 100 years is so small that if we didn’t have had meteorologists and climatologists to measure it we wouldn’t have noticed it at all.’

The Earth appears to have cooling properties that exceeds the previous thought ones, and that computer models are inadequate to try to foretell a chaotic object like the climate, where actual observations is the only way to go.”

More and more we are seeing the alarmists being increasingly marginalized. As the data pours in, their science is looking more and more preposterous.

Report shows UN admitting solar activity may play significant role in global warming
Fox News, 1st February 2013
The Earth has been getting warmer — but how much of that heat is due to greenhouse gas emissions and how much is due to natural causes?

A leaked report by a United Nations’ group dedicated to climate studies says that heat from the sun may play a larger role than previously thought.

“[Results] do suggest the possibility of a much larger impact of solar variations on the stratosphere than previously thought, and some studies have suggested that this may lead to significant regional impacts on climate,” reads a draft copy of a major, upcoming report from the U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

The man who leaked the report, StopGreenSuicide blogger Alec Rawls, told FoxNews.com that the U.N.’s statements on solar activity were his main motivation for leaking the document.

Rennison’s Comment:
We are waiting for the general acknowledgement that solar activity and Earth’s geomagnetic index are connnected and help determine our weather and climate… We will get there, but climate realists will savour this admission as another victory in a war of many battles.

Climate Science: Lying as a political motivator within the IPCC
WUWT, 28th January 2013

UPDATE 2: Annan also speaks about lying as a political motivator within the IPCC, I’ve repeated this extraordinary paragraph in full. Bold mine.

Note for the avoidance of any doubt I am not quoting directly from the unquotable IPCC draft, but only repeating my own comment on it. However, those who have read the second draft of Chapter 12 will realise why I previously said I thought the report was improved 🙂 Of course there is no guarantee as to what will remain in the final report, which for all the talk of extensive reviews, is not even seen by the proletariat, let alone opened to their comments, prior to its final publication. The paper I refer to as a “small private opinion poll” is of course the Zickfeld et al PNAS paper. The list of pollees in the Zickfeld paper are largely the self-same people responsible for the largely bogus analyses that I’ve criticised over recent years, and which even if they were valid then, are certainly outdated now. Interestingly, one of them stated quite openly in a meeting I attended a few years ago that he deliberately lied in these sort of elicitation exercises (i.e. exaggerating the probability of high sensitivity) in order to help motivate political action. Of course, there may be others who lie in the other direction, which is why it seems bizarre that the IPCC appeared to rely so heavily on this paper to justify their choice, rather than relying on published quantitative analyses of observational data. Since the IPCC can no longer defend their old analyses in any meaningful manner, it seems they have to resort to an unsupported “this is what we think, because we asked our pals”. It’s essentially the Lindzen strategy in reverse: having firmly wedded themselves to their politically convenient long tail of high values, their response to new evidence is little more than sticking their fingers in their ears and singing “la la la I can’t hear you”.

Oh dear oh dear oh dear…


Rennison’s Comment:
I changed the headline to make it clear that climate scientists in the inner circles are admitting their colleagues have been lying about the true cause of global warming/climate change. This will soon become a circular firing squad because as we are told here, the The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and people responsible for the largely bogus analyses are “in a bit of a pickle”. We might have to wait years before there is a general admission that climate change is being caused by the shift in the cosmic climate inducing a chain reaction that involves geomagnetic factors. However, the science is available for anyone who wants to understand the process of cosmoclimatology and energy driven evolutionary change that have been repeated many times on this planet.

TT Exelis awarded satellite technology contract to forecast space weather
Fort Mill Times, 29th January 2013
The Exelis Coherent Beacon System is a space-based sensor system that investigates and forecasts natural disturbances in the Earth’s atmosphere. The sensor system transmits multiple signals through the ionosphere (the upper part of the atmosphere) to a ground-based receiver.

“The new sensor system gives our customers advance knowledge about changes in space weather,” said ITT Exelis Director of Antenna and Space Programs Mark Fournier. “This system will allow the U.S. military to predict the effects of ionospheric activity on signals from communication and navigation satellites, which are critical to the safety and performance of our warfighters.”

Comment:
If the military don’t find ways to counteract the impact of space weather, all the high tech defense systems will become useless…
Secret [UK] Files and a Satellite Plummets
Mysterious Universe, 28th January 2013
Indeed, I was given access to an eight-page document that detailed how the Government, the military and the emergency services would respond if a satellite crashed on Britain. Classified at Restricted level, and later upgraded to a higher level of security, the document, titled Satellite Accidents with Radiation Hazards, was prepared in 1979 by the British Government’s Home Office and was circulated to every Chief Officer of Police, every Chief Fire Officer and every County Council in England and Wales. “Similar circulars are being issued by the Scottish Office and the Northern Ireland Office,” said the author of the paper.

According to the file, one of the hardest predictions to make was when and where a stricken space vehicle, possibly spiralling wildly out of control and at hundreds, or even thousands, of miles-per-hour would impact. On this issue, the author of the document stated:

“Although it is likely that knowledge of changes in the orbital pattern which might lead to premature return to Earth would be available many hours or even days before re-entry occurred, it would not be such that a reasonably accurate prediction of the final orbit over the Earth could be made until 12 to 24 hours before impact. Even then forecasts of the precise point of re-entry along this track might still be in error by thousands of kilometers. It is possible accurate warning would not be available till a few minutes before impact and it is possible there might be no warning.” […]

Comment:
Now that there is so many dead satellites falling and even known falls are being undereported, this is a useful read…

Global warming, the tool of the West by Pravda News


Note: Coming from a Russian publication, this is an amusing read…sadly they appear to have a better handle on reality than Western counterparts.

Global warming, the tool of the West. 49025.jpeg

By Stanislav Mishin

 

For years, the Elites of the West have cranked up the myth of Man Made Global Warming as a means first and foremost to control the lives and behaviors of their populations. Knowing full well that their produce in China and sell in the West model and its consequent spiral downward in wages and thus standards of living, was unsustainable, the elites moved to use this new “science” to guilt trip and scare monger their populations into smaller and more conservatives forms of living. In other words, they coasted them into the poverty that the greed and treason of those said same elites was already creating in their native lands.

What better way to staunch protests at worsening economic and life conditions than to make it feel like an honourable job/duty of the people to save “Gia”. At the same time, they used this “science” as new pagan religion to further push out the Christianity they hate and despise and most of all, fear? Gia worship, the earth “mother”, has been pushed in popular culture oozing out of the West for a better part of the past 1.5 decades. This is a religion replete with an army of priests, called Government Grant Scientists.

Various groups have fought back. This is including Russian hackers, who published a huge database of UK government, scientific and university emails depicting the fixing of data to sell Global Warming, er Climate Change (as if it never changed on its own). And while taking hit after hit, the beast, like Al Qaida, will not die. As a matter of fact, the beast is on a steady come back, as it is quite useful during the down times recession. The US alone spends $7 billion each year on warming “studies”, which is, in truth, nothing but a huge money laundering operation, as no real science is conducted and vapid alarmist reports the only product generated.

Amongst the newest claims of pending disasters, is a cry that icepacks are now melting at three times the rate of the 1990s, even though there has not been any significant warming in the past 20 years. Greenland’s icepack melt off, has been linked to volcanic activity under the ice, heating it. Must be the magmamen and their SUVs. These facts, however, do not faze the Gia crowd and their Elite/Governmental backers. The fact that a super storm hit the NE US is also being played as evidence of GW. Thank God that before GW no such things ever happened. How are they to explain that Russia and Eastern Europe are projected to have the coldest winter in 20 years? Oh, but I doubt my Western readers are even aware of that.

Now, with their economies in a spiral of debt laden, non-manufacturing recession (if not out and out depression), the Elites, who sense they are loosing their grip or toe hold on key economic regions outside their home regions, are once again calling out their inquisitors of Global Warming and sending them towards the developing world.

The first salvo has been fired by a British Warming dandy named Lord Nicholas Stern of Brantford, who as an academic at Whitehall, has made a career and quite a bit of money off of this scam. Lord Stern, a former World Bank chief economist and author of the landmark Stern review of the economics of climate change, was a close associate of Gordon Brown and the Leftists, who with the Tory counterparts and in parallel to the American Democrats/Republicans set up the grand and self destructive economic schemes that have plunged their own nations and many many others into the abyss of poverty.

The good Lord Stern, in commentary on why countries such as Russia, China, India and Brazil, in other words, the BRICs, have to pony up cash and depress their own growth, made this statement for the Guardian paper: “It’s a brutal arithmetic – the changing structure of the world’s economy has been dramatic. That is something developing countries will have to face up to,”

His premise is that even if you take out the deindustrialized West, run away Global Warming will not stop due to the industrialized world. Its now all the fault of those raising themselves up for the destruction of the world, from the phantom joke of GW. Lord Stern tried to assure that the opening salvo was not a salvo, by stating: “I am not pointing the finger at the developing world, just looking at what is necessary. I am not accusing or proposing, just calculating what is needed [to meet scientific estimates of the emissions cuts needed to avoid dangerous levels of climate change]”. More like a calculated accusation.  After all, this is not some light weight of the GIA cult, but the movement’s chief economist who enjoyed the ear of the UK government: a perfect tool of the Western Elites.

Expect the cries to get louder and more shrill in the months to follow.

Global data doesn’t support Reuters “fracking” Google search trend claim


Tom Nelson pointed this out this morning.

‘Fracking’ overtakes ‘climate change’ in Google searches | The Dickinson Press | Dickinson, North Dakota

This year, for the first time, U.S. online searches for the term “fracking” became more popular than “climate change,” Google data showed. Fracking has doubled on Google’s popularity index since last year, and while “global warming” still draws more hits, the gap is narrowing.

Only one problem with this: much like many claims made by the media these days related to climate, the actual data doesn’t support the claim. It took me less than a minute to locate the most recent Google trend data and see that the claim made by By Joshua Schneyer and Edward McAllister, Reuters (republished in the Dickenson Press) isn’t true.  See for yourself:

The two terms are six points apart (in global data) as of this month, and show no history of intersection.

Google_trends_fracking_CC

Source: http://www.google.com/trends/explore#q=fracking,%22climate%20change%22

The data shows “climate change” trending up from 2004, that we hit peak “climate change” right after Climategate, and it has never recovered.

They may intersect in the not too distant future, but unless Reuters has some inside track to Google data that others do not, the claim isn’t supported.

Note that “fracking” is also not as popular as “global warming” though both “global warming” and “Climate change are falling while “fracking” is on the rise.

“Fracking” is in blue, “climate change” is in reddish orange, and “global warming” is yellowish.  Source: http://www.google.com/trends/explore#q=fracking,%22climate%20change%22,%22global%20warming%22

Noting the time when “fracking” first came on the scene, one wonders that in the wake of “climategate” on November 19th 2009, if the environmental movement may have decided that “climate change” was a dying issue and moved onto “fracking” as the next exploitable call to action. The data certainly suggests it.
