John Coleman fires back on the IPCC Synthesis Report

so, not just me …….. do read on.

Watts Up With That?

johncoleman_TWCA RESPONSE FROM CLIMATE SKEPTIC JOHN COLEMAN FOUNDER OF THE WEATHER CHANNEL

When you read a news story about the United Nations Panel on Climate Change issuing new climate warnings and making a plea for immediate action to counter the impending climate crisis, do you ever wonder whata climate change skeptic thinks when he reads that news report.

I would like to share such an experience with you.

This is the Associated Press news report with mythoughts as I read itinserted in bold.

COPENHAGEN, Denmark (AP) — Climate change is happening, it’s almost entirely man’s fault and limiting its impacts may require reducing greenhouse gas emissions to zero this century, the U.N.’s panel on climate science said Sunday.

The first four words are very important. “Climate Change is happening.”  You bet it is.  The climate of planet Earth has been constantly changing for 4.5 billion…

UK flooding, Met Office, and all that – a map from 878AD tells us more than Slingo

“In November 2913, the Met Office said there was a “slight signal for below-average precipitation” for December, January and February.”

So how does that marry up with the above average rain seen across parts of the UK?

Watts Up With That?

bridgwater_somerset_UK There’s quite a hullabaloo in the UK as the Met Office tries to link recent flooding in Bridgwater , Somerset with global warming, with Lord Lawson even calling Met Office Julia Slingo’s claims “absurd” . Josh even has a cartoon at Bishop Hill about it.

But, even more instructive than the row is this historic map that shows flooding would likely be a normal occurrence in Bridgwater in the county of Somerset, UK, located on this map at right.

Now look at this map from 878AD. “Swamp or Alluvium” anyone? The arrow notation is mine.

Al Gore does it again :o)

Watts Up With That?

Al Gore, is his usual incompetent persona, is bloviating weapons grade nonsense again.

A few prior examples: On TV, Earth’s core is millions of degrees, in AIT, snows of Mt. Kilimanjaro will gone due to global warming, except the snows are growing, and Gore’s 24  hours of Climate Reality “high school science” that is so solid it has to be faked in post production.

Gore’s got a new schtick, he is now complaining about “dirty energy” making “dirty weather”.

From the Daily Caller there’s this:

Former Vice President Al Gore showed that he isn’t giving up on sounding the alarm on global warming and its catastrophic consequences in an appearance on Current TV’s “The War Room with Jennifer Granholm” on Thursday.

Gore, who owns CurrentTV and appeared alongside former Obama administration “green jobs czar” Van Jones, explained that “dirty energy and dirty money” are thwarting a green economy…

so are we about see a fall in global temperatures?

Watts Up With That?

Guest post by David Archibald

The first prediction of the current climatic minimum was made by Hubbert Lamb in 1970 in a report (Weiss and Lamb) for the German Navy. He did it by making a reconstructed record of the average frequency of south-westerly surface winds in England since 1340. Quoting Lamb “We sense a cycle or periodicity of close to 200 years in length.” and “There may be a valuable indication of the origin of this apparent 200 year recurrence tendency, in that the sharp declines of the south-westerly wind indicated in the late 1300s, 1560s, 1740s-1770s and now, in each case fell at about the end of a sequence of sunspot cycles which built up to periods of exceptionally great solar disturbance (around 1360-80, the 1570s, the 1770s, the 1950s and more recently). The frequency maxima of the south-westerly wind, and evidence of warm climate periods in Europe…
