Another Alarmist Temperature Lie

2015 is the make-or-break year for climate alarmism, with a crucial battle planned for Paris in November. So we can expect regular bursts of global warming propaganda.

The year started on cue with a breathless announcement from the US National Climate Data Centre: “2014 was Earth's warmest year on record” (their records start in 1880).

The Little Ice Age ended in about 1880. Therefore it is no surprise that global temperatures have generally risen since then. And it reveals nothing about the cause of the warming.

Moreover the announcement hides more than it reveals.

Firstly the alleged new peak temperature is just 0.04C higher than 2010. Who are they kidding? No weather recording station can measure to that accuracy. Once the likely error bars are added to the averaged data, the story changes to “recent global temperatures remain flat”.

Secondly, what does “average” mean? Almost every place on Earth has a different average temperature, and the averages range from 34C to -58C, a range of 92C. With very large daily and seasonal variations, an unevenly scattered and variable set of temperature recording stations, plus frequent “adjustments” to the raw figures, their calculated “global average” is probably a manipulated and meaningless number.

Trends are more important than spot values. Satellite data and proxies such as ice core data give more reliable long-term “average” temperature trends; both records say that 2014 is NOT unusually high.

Moreover, information on global temperature trends go back far beyond 1880 - ice core data goes back 20,000 years. These show there were several periods in the last 10,000 years with global temperatures significantly above that for 2014.

So the “warmest year on record” is just another warmist temperature lie.


What are They Plotting in Poland


I’M OFFENDED JULIA, WHY DIDN’T YOU ASK ME? I do really good portraits


Equally then, why would you listen to a palaeontologist ? A waterfront living one at that! He clearly isn't concerned about rising water levels or he'd be selling now, before the values drop!! ITS A SCAM and here’s the proof from IPCC official Ottmar Edenhofer before the Cancun gab fest:

“… we redistribute de facto the world’s wealth by climate policy. Obviously, the owners of coal and oil will not be enthusiastic about this. One has to free oneself from the illusion that international climate policy is environmental policy. This has almost nothing to do with environmental policy anymore...” WEALTH DISTRIBUTION nothing more and nothing less.

"Global Cooling, The coming Ice Age, the end of the inter Glaciation period" these were all DE RIGUEUR in the late seventies is this a new lot of scientists ?

It all started with the mammoths. Farting buggars - caused the Ice Age. What happened to the hole in the ozone layer and ,global warming? All that money wasted by supposedly scientific prats - and economists such as Flannery who are true geniuses. Yes - geniuses because they know how to control and milk a system with the support of the greens and labor to ensure that they have perks and lurks to promote their propaganda. By the way - hasn't a study been done to show that teacher graduates are the most incompetent of all. They then become the professors who promote this bullshit.

Wouldn't be much of a gyno if he couldn't help with back pain. The climate change faithful hang on the every word of the Flim Flam Mammal Man. Much reliance is placed on geological data as evidence of climate change. The issue is mostly a question of the integrity of the scientific method. If my recall is reliable every discipline from Epidemiology to Linguistics has climbed aboard the gravy train.

The Real Age of Stupid: Talking Heads Blame Latest Snowstorm on ‘Global Warming’ Subscriber&utm_campaign=c3ed11fd96-21st Century Wire Daily&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_1dfb7233cb-c3ed11fd96-72527217

....Some media outlets were claiming this was “The Worst Snow Storm in History”, which is not even remotely true (but hey, it sells papers so who really cares, right?). Across the region, the 2006 and 2003 Storm, Blizzard of ’97, Blizzard of ’78 and the Blizzard of ’69 were much worse, according to the National Weather Service, but not to the national media. New England caught the brunt of this week’s snow, but while media jesters were predicting an apocalypse in New York City, nothing happened.

Yet, we tuned into US broadcast networks last night and today to watch news anchors Don Lemon and Brooke Baldwin outside in their knitted caps, pointing at tiny drifts of snow as if this is something historic. CNN was pumping-up ‘state-wide travel bans’, at least in New Jersey, Connecticut and Massachusetts, starting at 11:30pm. “Only emergency personnel and certain members of the media [them] will be allowed out on the roads.”

Gore’s Odyssey: Another record-breaking freeze, still cult followers cling to climate mythology

The media made a big deal about how “Violating the road ban could cost you fines of up to $300, and could lead to arrest”. We checked, and it appears that out of all 5 nanny states declaring this faux disaster – not one fine was given, and not one arrest was made for ‘violating emergency curfews’. It was a horrible exhibition of intimidation on the part of government officials and a compliant media. Pathetic.

Smart folks will already have figured out that this over-the-top, massive show of force has nothing at all to do with snow. It’s simply another excuse for the media and government officials to band together to show the feudal masses that they’ve got it all “under control”. In other words: ‘you need us, and don’t you forget it’'............

So how does all this make sense?
Why would Governments persist in pushing the Global Warming/ Climate Change myth with such ferocity? Who benefits?
If you are a body of people wanting total Global control; you need a Global threat big enough to frighten people to unite and follow a common agenda. You will need to have a Global currency, to control the nations economically. You will need a way to negate democracy, people will not vote for their own demise. If you have a good enough reason to protect the masses all can be accomplished by regulation.
Does the UN spring to mind? The Euro? Climate Change? and the new catch phrase Sustainability. Agenda 21 is an ideology that wants to reduce the population by billions, to who’s benefit? 1% of the population owns 50% of the Worlds wealth. Five billion people are superfluous to requirements. The tangled web woven by the elite is only obvious if you are capable of standing back and looking at the big picture. It all makes perfect sense. We are being disposed of slice by slice by raising the price of food and energy. It’s not accidental; it’s a deliberate ploy to reduce the population.
As for sustainabillity , we have farmers ploughing in crops because there is no market for them. Some sustainabillity problem eh’.

Global Warming is attributed to the increased concentration of carbon dioxide in the air.
Considering that,
• zero concentration will result in the ultimate death of plants and consequently all living creatures,
• an increase would result in enhanced growth of plants and consequently more fodder for animals,
Then what is the optimum concentration of carbon dioxide in the air?
As yet Global Warming alarmists have not given us that figure, or at least a range, i.e. a set point, and then to legitimately justify that figure.
What valid argument can be made, if you can’t provide the criterion or set point, on which to base that argument on?

Pseudo science masquerading as real data! Problem is that we don't have enough Big Forbes to counteract the BS from the other side. Consequently the BS's appeal to the "great unwashed" to our detriment!

I believe the weather stations in USA in the Rockies have been shut down so the cooler temperatures of the mountain air does not affect their warmer areas by bringing down the average. Can someone confirm this?

Yes. It has been so bloody hot in North America and Europe the last couple of years, hasn't it? I did read some alarmist trying to blame the freezes in the northern hemisphere on..... yes you guessed warming!! Not even climate change, but bloody global warming. I guess they had been so busy on the warming mantra that they didn't read the alarmists update saying "don't mention global warming, just chant climate change!" Which after all is true.......climate changes, as it always has and slways will, with or without alarmists help or hindrance.

...yes of course it is Viv....these f**king Global Warming alarmists just got to ratchet up the alarmist propaganda...and it seems it will keep ratcheting up more as this great hoax becomes more exposed...not to forget...Global Warming has nothing to do with saving the planet...its all about destroying industrial based countries and wealth distribution to shit-hole countries around the world...this bullshit in New York...everyone in government were running around like headless-chooks alarming and scaring everyone...but it was a fizzer...and then the Meteorology people apologized for getting it wrong through...wait for it...false computer modeling...NOOOOOOOO!!...really!!!....what just like the false computer modeling in the Global Warming hoax...and what did it all cost...its all bullshit!

The less funds these thieves get, the scarier their climate change stories will become. They are more dishonest than a bank robber. We all know when a bank robber is doing a stick up. The global warming now climate change thieves pretend they are caring but is all about their livelihoods and to date have never predicted one outcome and now have resorted to reporting post event (of a weather experience or bushfire) with predictions of more and worse to come. Historical research has shown storms, droughts and fires and no more or less serious than they have been in the last 200 years.

Quote "Moreover, information on global temperature trends go back far beyond 1880 - ice core data goes back 20,000 years. These show there were several periods in the last 10,000 years with global temperatures significantly above that for 2014."
Surely ice cores don't record the temperature at Cains or Broom 20,000 years ago. Explanation requested.

I'm more worried about freezing than frying.

Lies are in their nature - wouldn't know the truth, never did.

There's something in the trough for them so any lie does.

What happened this winter?

This winter, the maximum total Antarctic sea ice extent was reported to be 19.47 million square kilometres, which is 3.6% above the winter average calculated from 1981 to 2010. This continues a trend that is weakly positive and remains in stark contrast to the decline in Arctic summer sea ice extent (2013 was 18% below the mean from 1981-2010).

but but but evil CO2 is causing this increase (0.04 degrees).....Need to bring in Labor's Price on Carbon for the masses to gorge on in welfare! Abbott is evil too with awards and other stuff and out GG is over in House Saudi to honour another peadophile from that house....Wasnt the Mo-is hammed one doing over a child bride so the King must have followed his prophet and an Ozzie representing US & celebrating his life...Common the climate needs to change with all this OS crap & scaremongering IMO!

The UN will not let such lucrative scam go just on inconvenient facts and truths. They are the new denialists.
