We’ve talked about this before. Record cold temps don’t count for anything and are shunned, but the moment there is record heat, that is definitive proof as far as the Church of Global Warming is concerned. Not only are temperatures down now compared to the last fourteen years, but they are also down compared to the last 1000 years and the last 65 million. We’ve also pointed out here the record cold that we experienced all throughout the United States and the world, so it’s not just us saying this.
But as predicted, the Church is using high temps now as more proof of Global Warming.
From USA Today:
March, April, May and June set records, making 2010 the warmest year worldwide since record-keeping began in 1880, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration says.
“It’s part of an overall trend,” says Jay Lawrimore, climate analysis chief at NOAA‘s National Climatic Data Center. “Global temperatures … have been rising for the last 100-plus years. Much of the increase is due to increases in greenhouse gases.”
Lets first dispute what he is saying.
The claims “Part of an overall trend” and “Rising for the last 100-plus years” are easily dealt with. Anyone can find a trend anywhere if the limit their data enough. In this case, he is limiting his data to the last 100 years (or rather the 100 years before the temps started going down.) If I, for example, Looked at the temps and their trend between 4:00am and 11:00 am, I could say the temps are going up, and would be accurate. If however I looked at the temps for the last 24 hours, a different story is told.
They are looking at the last 100 years because that is what fits their claims, and anyone who believes this hog-wash apparently doesn’t question the fact that the process used to record world-wide temperatures in the 1880s were not as accurate as the 1950s. And the 1950s were not as accurate as the 1970s. The 1970s were not as accurate as now.
To quote myself:
Eco-Fascist: warmest in a hundred years bla bla bla, I love Al Gore bla bla bla
Me: 100 years eh?
Me: Think those temperature records of 1908 are accurate?
Me: Like… Satellite accurate?
Eco-Fascist: ummmm… sure.
Then there are other issues with temperature records like pulling the stations in Siberia from the global temperature averages, but I digress. As ClimateGate has shown us, those who have much to gain on the Church of Global Warming, are willing to manipulate data to fit their preaching.
From the same article:
Marc Morano, a global-warming skeptic who edits the Climate Depot website, says the government “is playing the climate fear card by hyping predictions and cherry-picking data.”
Joe D’Aleo, a meteorologist who co-founded The Weather Channel, disagrees, too. He says oceans are entering a cooling cycle that will lower temperatures.
He says too many of the weather stations NOAA uses are in warmer urban areas.
“The only reliable data set right now is satellite,” D’Aleo says.
Jay Lawrimore, climate analysis chief at NOAA‘s National Climatic Data Center also said: “Much of the increase is due to increases in greenhouse gases.”
Um yea, for a rebuttal of this, you can look anywhere on the Church of Global Warming.
Take note how very few (if any) of the ‘cooling’ articles mention Global Warming or Climate Change. Three others from USA Today in January (here, here, and here) talk of the record cold, but do not dare to mention Global Warming or Climate Change at all.
It is amazing that while there are tens of thousands of scientists who don’t subscribe to this religion, the people who do are in absolute disbelief of their existence, or continue to belittle us for daring to look outside their window of dogma. Speaking of which, I have talked with Dr. Art Robinson on this issue before. Who the hell are we to even say that 280ppm of CO2 is “normal”?
But I digress. Keep an eye on the news and how they report this religion. Then note, as I did during the 2008-2009 and 2009-2010 winters how little you hear about it. Every summer is proof of Global Climate Change and an excuse for larger government to those who are looking for reasons for their God (Al Gore) to be right, and every winter means absolutely nothing.
Part of the whole Church of Global Warming movement is to demonize and our technology at every turn. If it wasn’t for our machines, the earth wouldn’t ever warm. It would stay nice and cool, at the same temperature forever. And one of the greatest threats to mother Earth is not your car, but your Air Conditioner.
From the Washington Post:
Washington didn’t grind to a sweaty halt last week under triple-digit temperatures. People didn’t even slow down. Instead, the three-day, 100-plus-degree, record-shattering heat wave prompted Washingtonians to crank up their favorite humidity-reducing, electricity-bill-busting, fluorocarbon-filled appliance: the air conditioner.
This isn’t smart. In a country that’s among the world’s highest greenhouse-gas emitters, air conditioning is one of the worst power-guzzlers. The energy required to air-condition American homes and retail spaces has doubled since the early 1990s. Turning buildings into refrigerators burns fossil fuels, which emits greenhouse gases, which raises global temperatures, which creates a need for — you guessed it — more air-conditioning.
A.C.’s obvious public-health benefits during severe heat waves do not justify its lavish use in everyday life for months on end. Less than half a century ago, America thrived with only the spottiest use of air conditioning. It could again.
So, you’re doing it, you air conditioning using bastards. I hope you’re happy with yourselves.
Actually, upon reading this article, my AC will remain at 66 for the next week. Why would I do that? To spite them? Well, yes. I would. But more importantly, I am going to up my energy usage because of this other bit of news:
From the Telegraph.co.uk:
Alice Springs: coldest day on record
The Outback Australian town of Alice Spring is suffering what is likely to be its coldest day on record, with temperatures struggling to reach more than 42.8F (6C).
I know I know what you’re saying. “But a record cold doesn’t mean anything” or “it’s the trend that matters.”
Well, it doesn’t matter, does it? Because if the “Trend” mattered, then the current trend of downward temps over the last 12 years would matter right? What about Temps? If we shouldn’t be paying attention to the record “cooling” temps (because its not proof of cooling), then any heat-wave news or or all of the record heat wouldn’t matter because its not proof of Global Warming.
To say the “Cooling” isn’t proof of no AGW but the Warming is, is like saying a TV station title White Entertainment Television is raciest but Black Entertainment Television is not.
So, while the Eco-Hipsters are sweltering in the heat and reading this, I’d like them to read something else while they’re at it:
–noun, plural -sies.
- a pretense of having a virtuous character, moral or religious beliefs or principles, etc., that one does not really possess.
- a pretense of having some desirable or publicly approved attitude.
- an act or instance of hypocrisy.
