Good morning to a bitter cold 18`, looks like I nailed it when last Fall I was telling everyone that we were in for a hard winter. After the coldest November had in these here parts came the warmest December I could recall here I thought that I had blown it, but here comes February with all of its bitter cold to bring new life into my forecast. Back then, if I recall right, both the government and Farmer’s Almanac were calling for a mild winter, I recon that they musta ment some other place than here.
May the Lord God IAUA bless us with enough this day.
From The Global Warming Hoax Department:
Remember when I assured you that the Hoaxster would blame all this cold weather on Global Warming? Well, I missed that, it is “Climate Change” that is getting the blame. When you read the below recall that piece I wrote “Control the Language, Control the Debate”
“Words are everything, even in the global warming debate. TV personality Bill Nye the “Science Guy” told MSNBC’s Joy Reid to use the phrase climate change, not global warming, when it’s so cold out.“Let’s not confuse or interchange climate change with global warming,” Nye told Reid on Monday. “Global warming – The world is getting warmer. There is more carbon [dioxide] holding in more heat.” “So when the climate changes, some places get colder,” Nye added. “And the thing that’s really consistent with climate change models is this variance where it’s cold, it’s warm, it’s cold, it’s warm… So what I would hope for, my dream, Joy, is that you all, you and the news business would just say the word climate change.”
I would also ask you to recall that I have never denied that the Earth has warmed since the last ice age, but have maintained that it was and is because of the sun, not man’s pitiful amount of co2 he adds to the atmosphere. Now it seems that the sun is going to sleep as far as sunspots are concerned anyway:
The main driver of all weather and climate, the entity which occupies 99.86% of all of the mass in our solar system, the great ball of fire in the sky – has gone quiet again during what is likely to be the weakest sunspot cycle in more than a century. For the past 5 days, solar activity has been very low and one measure of solar activity – its X-ray output – has basically flatlined in recent days (plot below courtesy NOAA/Space Weather Prediction Center). Not since cycle 14 peaked in February 1906 has there been a solar cycle with fewer sunspots. We are currently more than six years into Solar Cycle 24 and today the sun is virtually spotless despite the fact that we are still in what is considered to be its solar maximum phase. Solar cycle 24 began after an unusually deep solar minimum that lasted from 2007 to 2009 which included more spotless days on the sun compared to any minimum in almost a century.
The Internet is the final stage of democracy, because it took information out of the hands of a few and into the hands of everybody. The American Meteorological Society argued for their retention of control of information and thereby the debate.
“What is important scientific information and how it is interpreted in the policy debates is an important part of our jobs.” “That is, after all, the very reasons for the mix of science and policy in the IPCC.” John Daly correctly called this “Scientism”.
