Hinderaker and Watts chart the lies of ‘climate change’

Global warming in a few charts.


We constantly hear that temperatures are setting new records, but in reality, according to NOAA’s United States Climate Reference Network, average temperatures in the U.S. in 2019 were cooler than they had been at the start of the decade. The two peaks were, as usual, naturally-occurring El Nino years:

The alarmists’ models were created by activists to predict problematic levels of warming. That was the whole point. Unfortunately for the alarmists, enough time has now gone by that we can say, definitively, that the models are wrong. They grossly exaggerated any mild warming that has actually occurred. And a model that produces wrong predictions is worthless.

 
See the other charts at the link. Anthony Watts has several more. Possibly the most fascinating of those is Change in Leaf Area 1982 to 2015. “The greening over the past 33 years reported in this study is equivalent to adding a green continent about two-times the size of mainland USA (18 million km2) …”

    They may have lost the modelling battle but they’ve won the political war.

    Greening sans warming?
    Just like the unadulterated icecore data…

    Strange how the key CAGW “Authorities” are Economists such as Garnaut and Figueres.

    Christiana Figueres on the climate emergency: ‘This is the decade and we are the generation’

    What emergency?

    Many more data series show nothing much is happening. Here’s another one from today:

    Greta’s, The Guardian’s Latest Panic Attack Over Antarctica Record Ignores Cooling Trends Of Recent Decades

    There are headlines all over the news websites about the Antarctic Peninsula reaching 20.7 C the other day. Yet you won’t see the explanation that it was because of a huge jet stream coming down from the north, nor will you see data such as shown in the above article that there’s been a cooling trend for over a quarter century at that very same location.

    CO2 does very little in the real world as another paper recently reported. But you never hear such things in the MSM.

    Facts! Don’t try to change the course of history with mere facts. The meme, the vibe, the narrative told by the chattering classes, the celebs, the sold-out people with anything like B.Sc or above after their name (not essential anyway) and the politicians who live in constant fear of the uber-class, the media, who so many of them do not dare to antagonise or contradict.

    Good news on the front of the Sunday Herald in Sydney, Advance Australia is getting onto the issue of climate propaganda in schools. Sam Kennard got a mention, he is on the CIS Board. Maybe they are only fund raising at present, no specifics on this page.

    ABC reporting Antartica temperature was 20 degrees this week where did they take it in top of the vulcanoes?

    Climate sensitivity, roughly the temperature response to an increase in CO2, is one of, if not the worst pseudo scientific notions from alarmism. And even the alarmists can’t get in right. Both David Stockwell and Nichola Scafetta have done great graphs showing how alarmism has continually changed their estimate of climate sensitivity:

    Whopping great jet stream loop coming down from several thousand km to the north.

    Such jet stream patterns are characteristic of solar minimums, like we are now in.

    See my comment upthread also.

    Former railway man, sexy paperback writer and front man for the UN’s IPCC Climate Scam Central, Mr. Pachauri, has reportedly died.
    The compliant media has never made a fuss over whether he was a climate scientist, or whether the Summary for Policy Makers represented the scientific content of IPCC reports.

    As that sub-moron Sarah Le Marquand crowed about on Sky last night. The country now accepts climate change and we are out of step with the country.

    Something for the coming generations to rebel against and I hope Sarah’s kids are the leading rebels.

    And note the scales on that plot:

    ONE cell per YEAR, TWO cells pre degree..

    It was DESIGNED to look “scarey”.

    Those of us whose tertiary education encompassed three State schools can see the problem. Those who created that graphic and those going “ooh” and Ah” about it are the actual problem.

    Real people have a problem. The actual enemies of humanity and liberty who are running the AGW scam have a PLAN and a TIMETABLE. Not many jollies ruling the world when you are in your 80’s. They want it NOW and will get more desperate as time inexorably marches on.

    Fahrenheit or Celcius?

    Kelvin?

    Heretodus did he die of heatstroke do you think it used to get very hot in India before climate change .

    This has been the hottest summer since 2019/20 here in Melbourne . Ask the comrades at the BOM
