Pause is old enough to vote in Australia

It is now 18 years since any global warming occurred according to accurate satellite data. An eighteen year old whose birthday was today would be able to vote and yet have seen no statistical change in global temperatures during his lifetime.

Dr Karl and cherry-picking

A good friend of mine who is a true believer has informed me that he gets his global warming science from Dr Karl who has an ABC radio program and who also writes articles for the ABC . Giving the doctor his due he answers questions on many scientific questions well and it seems that only when he gets into the global warming area that science goes out  the window and is replaced by the global warming catechism.
His latest foray on the subject should be titled Dr Karl's Great Moments in Nonsense it is so bad. In it he joins the warmist world in it's desperate attempts to keep their failed theory alive after nearly 20 years of no warming. He accuses skeptics talking about the "global warming pause" of cherry picking facts. He then does some extraordinary cherry picking himself.
Claim 1: Two bodies, the Royal Society and the US National Academy of Sciences, warned that "climate change is more certain than ever."
Their accurate data shows that the climate, as measured by surface temperature of air and water, is still getting hotter.
There are four major global temperature data sets all showing Dr Karl has got it wrong.
The most accurate record is the RSS satellite data showing 18 years of no warming and even the massively tampered GISS record shows a 10 year flat record. 
Claim 2.
There are other indicators that inform us about the state of the global climate.
They include the volume of the Arctic sea ice (which has been shrinking), snow in the Northern Hemisphere (also shrinking) and glaciers (more shrinking).
Arctic ice records from satellites only go back to 1979 when it was at a high level due to global cooling and it is true that Arctic ice has been cyclically shrinking since then. Dr Karl neglects to mention there was a lot less ice in the seventies than now. He also neglects to mention the huge recovery of Arctic ice this year increasing a whopping 64% from 2012. He also does not mention the all-time record high for Antarctic sea ice this year.
ScreenHunter_3049 Sep. 25 06.10
Records from NOAA  show 1979 start  date distorts graphs.

Northern Hemisphere snow cover seems not to be shrinking.
And if you are a skier you would love this last decade looking at NH winter snow increasing at a great rate.

Claim 3
In the oceans we measure the sea level (which has been rising as an accelerating rate).
We can simply check our own Brisbane Bar tide gauge showing very little sea level rise.

 We can also check with a real expert on the oceans Professor Axel-Morner

In summary it would seem that the good Doctor Karl has been doing some cherry-picking himself !

Over 1000 real scientists stand up against scam

How climate consensus is achieved.
An updated list of over 1000 real scientists challenging the global warming pseudo-science  has been recently updated. From Global Research:

Nobel Prize-Winning Stanford University Physicist Dr. Robert B. Laughlin, who won the Nobel Prize for physics in 1998, and was formerly a research scientist at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory.
“In essence, the jig is up. The whole thing is a fraud. And even the fraudsters that fudged data are admitting to temperature history that they used to say didn’t happen…Perhaps what has doomed the Climategate fraudsters the most was their brazenness in fudging the data”
 Link to Complete 321-Page PDF Special Report
More than 1,000 dissenting scientists (updates previous 700 scientist report) from around the globe have now challenged man-made global warming claims made by the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and former Vice President Al Gore. This new 2010 321-page Climate Depot Special Report — updated from the 2007 groundbreaking U.S. Senate Report of over 400 scientists who voiced skepticism about the so-called global warming “consensus” — features the skeptical voices of over 1,000 international scientists, including many current and former UN IPCC scientists, who have now turned against the UN IPCC. This updated 2010 report includes a dramatic increase of over 300 additional (and growing) scientists and climate researchers since the last update in March 2009.

Alarmist anger at Wall Street Journal snub to climate march

The Wall Street Journal relegated the climate march to a small section inside the paper having important news for the front page and even then concentrated on the arrests of demonstrators and not the end of the world is nigh message the true believers felt appropriate.
More than 100 demonstrators were arrested in lower Manhattan on Monday after blocking traffic along Broadway for hours as part of a climate-change rally.
The protest, called Flood Wall Street, included a brief march and a sit-in around the Charging Bull statue in the Financial District.
The Guardian is upset that the WSJ is taking such a rational approach to the march. Perhaps the fact that it hasn't warmed in two decades and global warming is no longer real news has something to do with it. It also goes into damage control on an article by Steven Koonin on climate model inaccuracy preciously reported here.

As has become the norm for media outlets owned by Rupert Murdoch, just before a half million people participated in the People’s Climate Marcharound the world, The Wall Street Journal published an opinion piece downplaying the risks and threats posed by human-caused global warming. The editorial was written by Steven Koonin, a respected computational physicist who claims to have engaged in “Detailed technical discussions during the past year with leading climate scientists,” but who is himself not a climate scientist.

Koonin did admit that the climate is changing and humans are largely responsible, and noted,

There is well-justified prudence in accelerating the development of low-emissions technologies and in cost-effective energy-efficiency measures.

This is a step in the right direction. Unfortunately, Koonin’s editorial focused almost exclusively on the remaining uncertainties in climate science. Ironically, he stated,

Any serious discussion of the changing climate must begin by acknowledging not only the scientific certainties but also the uncertainties, especially in projecting the future.

But Koonin himself got the certainties wrong. For example, we know that humans are the main cause of the current climate change, responsible for about 100% of the global warming since 1950.

Hypocrite alert

Celebrities were thick on the ground in New York at the "climate" march having jetted in in their private jets and limousines to tell the  proletariat to reduce their living standards to "cure"the planet by reduction of consumption.
Of course doubling of electricity and fuel prices is of no consequence to the uber-rich who exhorted the masses to do what they say and not what they do. Even with some of them having carbon footprints the size of small cities the hollywood hypocrisy is still lost on the true believers .
From the  Climate Depot:
New York City – Actor Mark Ruffalo declared certain questions off limits to the media today at the People’s Climate March in New York City.
During the media availability press event, Ruffalo was asked in a one-on-one interview with Climate Depot if celebrities like Leonardo DiCaprio, who boasts that he will fly around the world to fight global warming and former VP Al Gore,  are the best spokesmen for global warming given their huge carbon footprints. (See: Leo DiCaprio: ‘The Argument Is Over. Climate Change Is Happening Now’)
“Oh brother. That is a question you shouldn’t be asking here today because that defies the spirit of what this is about,” Ruffalo told Climate Depot.

Greenie Garbage

Disrespectful: Trash can be seen littering the route following the climate change march on Sunday
They tell us there were hundreds of thousands  in New York telling us how we should live and love the planet and to provide a shining example for all of us. Unfortunately the example given was that of pigs .Obviously the sandalista,Communists,activists and fellow travellers crowding into New York to make a political point care little about the environment if the garbage left behind is an example.
The Daily Mail has the story:
Climate change skeptics have branded protesters who marched through Manhattan on Sunday as hypocrites for leaving litter strewn across the city.
New Yorkers uploaded images to social media sites showing piles of trash - included ditched paper and cardboard signs - left behind after thousands took part in the People's Climate March.
'Their love for the Earth is so real, they couldn't even use a trash can,' one critic, known as @chelsea_elisa on Twitter, wrote beneath an image of an overflowing trash can.
'Somehow this doesn't seem too green 2me,' David Kreutzer, a research fellow at the conservative think tank Heritage Foundation, wrote alongside another photo of litter on the ground.

Goebbels would be proud!

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.  .” Joseph Goebbels
The propaganda department at Climate Change Central has gone into overdrive as climate data, including a massive jump in Arctic sea ice ,record Antarctic sea ice and a cooling globe increasingly contradicts their failed theory.
With a 64% increase this year  in Arctic summer ice over 2012 the same old "Arctic death spiral" story has been re-released with the date moved forward from 2013 completely ignoring 2014 data.
“The Arctic ice cap is in a death spiral,” said Peter Wadhams, professor of ocean physics at Cambridge University. He has just returned from a research voyage in which the thickness of Arctic sea ice was measured by sending a mini-submarine under the floes.
Remember this from the "settled science department":

Germany- Ill wind blows no good!

Germany is now beginning to suffer from excessive and  foolhardy investments in subsidised "green" energy as many wind investments go into the red as forecast by skeptics.The ailing wind industry in Germany should be a salutary lesson to Australia , the USA and other countries going down the same path . The under-performing wind industry in Germany was oversold  and is now in trouble as red ink mounts with two thirds of projects running "badly or very badly".
From NoTricksZone:

Wind parks experienced a gold rush atmosphere during the last decade, with thousands of turbines being erected over the last 15 years. Now the data are coming in on their real performance. It looks pretty bad. The German SWR TV report (can be viewed at Youtube) first presents the background on wind energy development in Germany and tells the story of “disappointed investors”, especially in the western German state of Rhineland Palantinate.

Initially investors’ expectations of getting rich on wind were high, the report says. Big returns were promised (between 400 and 800% in 2006). But for a wide majority that dream has shattered violently as losses mount.

“2/3 of all projects are running badly to very badly”

The SWR report at the 1:20 mark says the promises of huge returns were based on overly optimistic wind model forecasts. Werner Haldorf of the pro-wind-energy German Association of Wind Energy analyzed wind park performance and sums up the “surprising” results at the 1:38 mark:

We can say that one third of all projects have pleased the investors, or at least have been satisfactory – depending on how high or low the subjective expectations were, satisfied also with respect to the planning results. And two thirds of all projects are running somewhat badly to very badly.”

Some sanity at last!

With most scientific institutions throughout the world in the hands of activists supporting global warming catastrophism I am delighted to see that the august American Physical Society may be putting science before politics and revising the Society's stand on global warming. The APS represents physicists and others in the physical sciences in the US and is one of the premier scientific bodies in the world.
Following public resignations by renowned phycisist and Nobel Laureate Hal Lewis and others over the issue a sub-committee was set up to revise the APS Climate Change statement with physicist Dr. Steven Koonin as chair.
The good doctor has written an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal which will terrify warmists as it is an intelligent review of climate change by a senior scientific figure not supporting the "consensus".
We often hear that there is a "scientific consensus" about climate change. But as far as the computer models go, there isn't a useful consensus at the level of detail relevant to assessing human influences.
It will be very interesting to see the final position statement of the APS.

Green Jesus for Global Warming Religious Cult

It is official - Global Warming is now a religion and even has it's own green Jesus according to the Huffington Post .  Newsbusters has the story:
Green Jesus. That is the image that now greets visitors to the Huffington Post Religion page at the very top. If you think that the Huffington Post has an agenda it is pushing, you would be correct. A total of seven stories are devoted to the topic of global warming in general and Sunday's "People's Climate March NYC" in particular.
The extent that the Huffington Post is inappropriately using religion to push a worldwide political program of big spending programs on a problem that doesn't exist can be seen in the "religion" articles used to hype this agenda. The desperation of the Huffington Post to link religion with global warming alarmism produces some hilarious results starting with the very title of this article, Green Spirit vs Climate Change:
This week's All Together segment is called Green Spirit in honor of the giant People's Climate March happening in New York City and around the world the weekend of September 20th and 21st; and the UN Climate Summit the following week. Raushenbush speaks with environmentalist Bill McKibben, Karenna Gore, and Rabbi Lawrence Troster about the spiritual significance of environmental activism and how religious communities are rallying to help save the environment before it is too late. Plus Raushenbush offers a quick round up of the religious news of the week and picks this week's Saints and Sinners.

Tim cries wolf again

Tim"the dams will never be full" Flannery and his cohorts lost their cushy jobs at the Climate Commission when Tony Abbott closed it down. Given such an abysmal and embarrassing record as global warming prophet a lesser man than Tim would give up at that point but he returns to the fray with more outlandish predictions about rising sea levels.
From the Australian:
MORE than $226 billion of properties, roads and rail lines on the Australian coast could be at risk from rising sea levels and associated storm surges if climate change produces a sea level rise of about 1m.
A report by the Climate Council, to be released today, warns that sea levels are expected to rise between 0.4m and 1m over the next century and that coastal flooding risks roughly treble with every 0.1m rise.
In the real world a  quick fact-check on the tide gauge at Sydney's Botany Bay shows levels actually falling over the last 12 years .

Surprise ,Surprise ! Tony Abbott won't be going to UN climate gabfest next week- too busy

Getting your priorities right!

Tony will join leaders from major emitters Japan, China and India in boycotting Obama's climate love-in in New York as he is "too busy" which is code for "global warming is crap"  as he has been known to say. Foreign minister Julie Bishop will get the job of hearing the Fuhrer-in-Chief explain how he intends to ignore both houses of US legislators to push his idiotic and economy-destroying climate agenda.

How is that global warming going?

The RSS satellite temperature anomaly dropped by .16 deg C in August accentuating what now seems to be a cooling trend contrary to all global warming predictions by alarmists.
Meanwhile NASA has now claimed that August was the "hottest" on record using wildly tampered GISS records from the Ministry of Truth at NASA.

BOM - Government acts!

The government has ordered BOM to establish the independent advisory panel recommended 2 years ago which of course has not happened , The BOM said the panel was "in progress" and due to be completed next year displaying the complete incompetence of the organisation taking three years to do a job requiring a few weeks. The parliamentary secretary has said it is to be completed this year.

They think we are all dills!

 110 foot crane in Antarctica   buried by Global Warming
That pesky Antarctic sea ice record is sure causing angst among alarmists.
The latest claim on the ABC is that the increasing warmth (which hasn't increased for 20 years) is causing more evaporation and dumping more snow on the ocean  due to the increased moisture.. It must of course be very selective snow and not dump on the continent itself which according to climate "scientists" is melting away at sub-zero temperatures. (See picture above)
Along those lines I guess this means that if it gets warm enough then the oceans will freeze over , a grave situation which will be avoided only we keep our SUV's in the garage.

GUY WILLIAMS: Well we have a number of reasons to suspect that this would occur in a warming climate. I think for some time now, more than a decade, scientists have thought that perhaps with a warming atmosphere you get more moisture content and eventually more precipitation or snowfall in the Southern Ocean. 

GUY WILLIAMS:   The Antarctic ice sheet is losing mass, we know that very clearly and that freshwater input to the ocean is again another source of enhanced sea ice formation.

Well the huge Antarctic ice sheet, the kilometres of ice that we have on top of there, which you know is the really big problem in terms of future sea level rise, is losing mass as it is in the Arctic. So predominately around the edge coastal regions through interactions with the warming ocean.

These guys must get headaches with the mental gymnastics required to support their failed theory.

"Settled Science" now has 52 different excuses for the pause.

Graph from Roy Spencer

Activists masquerading as scientists are desperate to keep the scam of catastrophic global warming alive and the list of excuses for the failure of the globe to warm is now 52 and rising . Each excuse is dutifully trotted out in the press as the answer without any reference to the other mostly mutually exclusive excuses.

Global warming causes record Antarctic sea ice say "experts"

Antarctic sea ice is at the highest level since satellite records began causing much consternation among climate "scientists". Of course the announcement comes complete with the whacko theory that all this extra ice is caused by global warming. From the ABC news:

Antarctic scientists have declared a new record has been set for the extent of Antarctic sea ice since records began.

Satellite imagery reveals an area of about 20 million square kilometres covered by sea ice around the Antarctic continent.

"This is an area covered by sea ice which we've never seen from space before," he said.

"Thirty-five years ago the first satellites went up which were reliably telling us what area, two dimensional area, of sea ice was covered and we've never seen that before, that much area.

"That is roughly double the size of the Antarctic continent and about three times, four times the size of Australia."

The formation of sea ice around Antarctica every year is one of the biggest seasonal events on Earth.

The ice is generated in what scientists refer to as "sea ice factories" or polynias; areas of the ocean surface where currents and wind patterns combine to generate sea ice.

CEO of the Antarctic Climate and Ecosystems CRC, Tony Worby, said the warming atmosphere is leading to greater sea ice coverage by changing wind patterns.

"The extent of sea ice is driven by the winds around Antarctica, and we believe that they're increasing in strength and part of that is around the depletion of ozone," he said.

BOM backs down

BOM  Temperature Homogenisation Department
The Australian Bureau of Meteorology has bent to pressure to publish details of changes to historical temperature records as part of the "homogenisation" process. Following much bluster and name-calling after it was revealed the BOM could not substantiate changes to Rutherglen station where .35 degrees of cooling mysteriously morphed to 1.73 degrees of warming, the BOM has given in. It seems that the "amateurs" as they  were called by David Karoly have had a big win.
For more than 2 years the BOM has resisted calls to publish details and we are about to find out why as the "amateurs" get to check the data adjustments.

The Rule of Law goes AWOL in the US

With the administration cover-up over Benghasi and the inexplicable loss of IRS emails from various servers together with the EPA email scandals it is not surprising that law officials down the line should emulate the country's leader in trashing the legal system.
In Massachusetts the DA has dropped criminal charges against two law-breakers on the basis that they were protesting against climate change and that apparently made the illegal activity OK. When two activists blocked coal transporters and were arrested DA Sutter dropped the charges. From Democracy Now:

In a surprise move, District Attorney Sam Sutter of Bristol, Massachusetts, has dropped criminal charges against two climate activists who were set to go on trial Monday for blocking a shipment of 40,000 tons of coal. In May 2013, Ken Ward and Jay O’Hara used their lobster boat to prevent a delivery of the coal to the Brayton Point Power Station in Somerset, Massachusetts. For their trial, Ward and O’Hara had planned to invoke the "necessity defense," arguing that their actions were justified by how the coal industry worsens the climate change that threatens our planet. In an unprecedented announcement, District Attorney Sutter all but adopted their reasoning and dropped the charges. "Climate change is one of the gravest crises our planet has ever faced," Sutter said outside the courthouse, explaining his decision. "In my humble opinion, the political leadership on this issue has been sorely lacking.”
Tune in to Democracy Now! on Wednesday for our interview with the two climate activists, Ken Ward and Jay O’Hara, and District Attorney Sam Sutter.
What range of crimes are now permissible under this new scenario - arson,bodily harm ? Where will it stop.

Lonely time for Liar-in-Chief at UN Climate Conference

Obama said after his re-election that “What we do know is the temperature around the globe is increasing faster than was predicted even 10 years ago.”  . This statement was undeniably false as there has been no warming for nearly 18 years which is acknowledged now by even the most rabid warmists. 
Ban Ki Moon's effort to beat the global warming drum via the UN has evoked very little interest from major leaders other than Obama with China,India ,Germany,Russia and Australia neglecting to send their leaders. A climate conference without China and India is a joke.
Two of Germany's top scientists Sebastian Lüning and Fritz Vahrenholt write:

Imagine there’s a climate conference, but no one goes. Already months ago South Korean UN General Secretary Ban Ki-moon busily sent out invitations to world leaders, kindly requesting them to appear at the Climate Change Special Conference in New York on 23 September 2014. The aim of the conference is to agree on concrete actions for a CO2 reduced world in order to curb a menacing climate catastrophe. At the German Huffington Post Ban Ki-moon set forth his underlying motivation for September 2014 conference(translated from the German):

I have travelled the world in order to see the impacts with my own eyes. From the Arctic to the Antarctic, from low-lying islands of the Pacuífic, which are threatened by rising sea levels, to the melting glaciers of Greenland, the Andes and the Alps. I have seen expanding deserts in Mongolia and in the Sahel Zone, and threatened rainforests in Brazil. Everywhere I have spoken with the affected people who are deeply worried about the threat to their way of life and their future because of climate change.”

Dear Mr General Secretary: If you really wish to cut back on CO2 emissions, then you should NOT jet around the globe in your UN jet to supposedly see climate change with your own eyes. Perhaps you have heard that the Pacific Atolls are living corals that are growing along with sea level rise. The glaciers already melted before, 1000 years ago during the Medieval Warm Period when it was as warm as today. Currently the Sahel desert regions are not expanding as you claim, rather they are becoming greener. Moreover the rainforests of Brazil are threatened foremost by deforestation thanks to palm oil and biofuels. That is something to be really worried about, and not about climate change.

As opposed to the UN General Secretary, many world leaders have obviously realized that the science is overheated. An increasing number of scientists are distancing themselves explicitly from the catastrophe mindset. After 16 years of no global warming, the basis for trust between policymaking and the IPCC scientists is sustainably disturbed. We believed you and you’ve disappointed us, the scathed politicians bemoan behind closed doors.

So it is little surprise that hardly anyone has the desire to attend the Climate Summit Circus. Already in May, 2014, German Chancellor Angela Merkel respectfully declined -she had other more important appointments. What could they possibly be about? Even today there is still no entry in Merkel’s Online  appointment book for the 23rd of September. Perhaps an appointment with the hairdresser that can no longer be put off? Crochet evening with good friends? Let’s keep it a surprise for now.

Getting the BS ready for Northern winter

Major blizzards are part of the global warming future is the conclusion of the latest "scientific" study released in time for the NH winter . This will enable climate "scientists" to claim that they predicted it if and when the US or Europe is buried in the "thing of the past" called snow, this winter . In the ever-changing Orwellian climate "science" manual the thing of the past has now the become thing of the future as part of the "Global Warming causes everything" meme.
Ice and snow represent the greatest danger to the scam as no matter how  much the temperature records are tampered with the non-scientist man-on-the-street can still look out his window and know he is being taken for a ride.

Europe chills in August

With summer snow and temperatures in the UK and Germany up to 1.5 degrees below normal in August the global warming scam is wearing thin for the long-suffering Europeans.

Germany has been cooling for the last 17 years and I find it odd that the Germans cannot bring themselves to fudge the data to agree with the propaganda as the US  has done. From NoTricksZone:

A village somewhere is short one!

Believing the IPCC and their acolytes about sea ice can be very hazardous and this  tiny sloop found itself in trouble in the Canadian arctic and was threatened by prowling polar bears looking for a snack.  Luckily an ice hardened ship managed to break the ice and rescue them and there was a happy ending.

Bodgie Bathurst record exposed

Another scandal for Aussie temperature records as Bathurst  also has been converted from a cooling trend of 1.3 C/century to a warming trend of .3 C/century - a huge adjustment. From Real Science:

GHCN thermometer data shows Bathurst cooling 1.3C/century from 1910 to 1983, yet NASA shows Bathurst warming by 0.3C/century over that same period (using the same thermometer data.)
They accomplish this through an impressive hockey stick of data tampering.

More man-made global warming

It seems the BOM "homogenization" scandal has a long way to run with Deniliquin joining the list of Australian stations mysteriously changing from a cooling trend to a warming trend. It is interesting that the BOM was used  as an expert body to justify New Zealand's temperature record tampering where cooling records were adjusted to warming.

Average temperatures.
As usual adjustments consist of cooling the past to create a warming trend to meet the imperatives of the failed global warming theory. Graham Lloyd of the Australian has the story:

Conversation,charlatans,cowards and censorship

The Conversation has degenerated further this week using editorial privilege to protect the abusive posts of the regular denizens on the blog. A current article attempting to justify data tampering by the BOM which was exposed by scientist Jennifer Marahosi and Graham Lloyd of the Australian has led to abuse and name-calling by low-lifes infesting the blog.  I posted the following expecting the Conversation to take action which they did. They removed my post!!!
The Conversation is setting a low standard with Alice calling  Jennifer a coward and a charlatan and Mike Swinbourne calling Graham Lloyd and Jennifer liars . They are both professionals with a point of view and should not be subjected to abuse which is probably actionable.

The offensive comments:

Alice Kelly

In reply to Neil Gibson
I(f JM had any serious concerns, she could easily find both forms of data raw and homogenised and set out her concerns in an organised methodical scientific manner, which includes submitting her findings for peer review.
As a research fellow she would be very aware of the correct way to conduct scientific research which includes any findings which question current science.
The fact that she has not submitted any finding to a current scientific publication, rather to "the Australian" or more particularly the discredited climate writerGraham Lloyd, and accused BOM of engaging in propaganda and corruption, means that SHE has set a low standard which does not reflect on the conversation or me, at all.
Yeah she's a charlatan, and a coward.
She could submit her findings to a publication for peer review, instead of using a blog, a newspaper, and a few gullible deniers to do her dishonest dirty work for her, by way of publicising unproven scurrilous accusations.
