Media Go Into Panic On How To Spin Record Cold

The liberal media are going into panic mode attempting to salvage their precious global warming crisis as yet another record cold winter takes shape across the country. Desperately hoping to purge the public’s memory of failed predictions of warm, snowless winters, the media are now going into overdrive trying to claim global warming theory predicted colder and snowier winters all along.

The shameless effort to spin this year’s cold, early winter as the predicted result of global warming is typified by a media request sent out by International Business Times journalist Connor Sheets.

White Christmas in Hawaii: Blizzard Blankets Big Island's Mountains in Snow

Yes, there were blizzard warnings in effect in Hawaii, where the two highest mountain peaks on the Big Island eventually saw a White Christmas.

Blizzard warnings were in effect on Christmas Eve for Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa above 11,500 feet for strong winds and heavy snow which led to blowing and drifting snow. By definition, winds must be at least 35 mph or greater with falling or blowing snow that reduces visibility to 1/4 mile or less for at least 3 hours to reach blizzard criteria.

Bush Administration. That article also said that “Bush’s replacement,” President Barack Obama, “has reversed course” in this area.

California Drought Linked to Natural Causes, Not Climate Change

Natural temperature swings in the ocean, not global warming, are driving California's extreme drought, according to a new government study.

Researchers said sea surface temperatures in the equatorial Pacific Ocean set up an atmospheric roadblock off the West Coast that diverted winter storms away from California. The state relies on winter rain and snow for most of its yearly water.

The roadblock is a persistent ridge of high pressure that first formed in 2011 during a La Niña event. Even though La Niña broke down after the 2011-2012 winter, the western equatorial Pacific Ocean remained a warm water bull's-eye, a pattern known to trigger droughts in the Southwest and California, the researchers report.

Climate Change, Global Warming and the Carbon Finance Business

It’s perhaps the greatest speculative bubble since Holland’s ‘Tulip Mania’.

At the peak of tulip mania, circa 1637, a single tulip bulb sold for more than 3,000 Dutch guilders – that’s 10 times the annual income of a skilled craftsman in those days. It was great while it lasted, but reality eventually caught up with the creative opportunists.

Man-made global warming, or as it likes to be referred to these days as ‘climate change’, had a grand plan in its heyday. The mythology was underpinned by a new economic model, one which hoped to monetize CO2 emissions – or more accurately, the absence of CO2.

Storm to bring river of rain, snow to Sacramento region

The storm predicted to strike Northern California starting Wednesday night originated in the complex high-altitude wind currents constantly whipping around the globe. In this case, those winds are focusing into a narrow jet that is poised to sling heavy rain and wind unlike anything the state has seen in years.

The storm has taken the shape of an “atmospheric river,” a condition some experts have described as a kind of horizontal hurricane. Miles above the Earth, swirling winds of up to 200 mph are funneling into a narrow band, pulling subtropical moisture all the way across the Pacific Ocean. That funnel will be emptying on California.

“If this continues to intensify, this is going to be a lot more rain than anybody has seen in a long time, because everything is so dry,” said William Patzert, a climatologist at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena. “Any way you look at it, you could say the Pacific Ocean decided to declare war on the California drought this week.”

A single sentence on page 4 of the Summary for Policymakers puts the IPCC’s conclusions in a different perspective:

That’s right. Regardless of its cause. Working Group 2 isn’t claiming that these observed impacts are necessarily a result of human activities. They could equally well be the result of natural climate change – the IPCC makes no distinction. And if they are, then President Obama, the New York Times, the Guardian and all the others who believe that the adverse impacts of human-caused climate change are already being felt have got it wrong.

NASA simulation shows a year in the life of Earth’s CO2

NASA scientists have created an ultra-high-resolution computer model that gives staggering views of how carbon dioxide swirls around Mother Earth — and the heavy toll it takes on her.

Earlier this week, the space agency released a new simulation created with this model, called GEOS-5, that shows clouds of carbon dioxide, a key driver of global warming, drifting far from their original sources — turning local greenhouse gases into global problems.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"So you just forget about all that snow and ice and just look at this computer model that NASA (those smart guys who made Challenger, Columbia, the Mars Polar Lander, the Mars Climate Observer and all that other cool stuff) made for us! See how the evil, evil, EVIL Carbon Dioxide is turning our our blue planet ugly orange! Ugly, ugly, ugly! And if you are a loyal American you will ignore the snow and ice, worship the simulation, and pay your carbon taxes!" -- Official White Horse Souse


< This is yet another computer simulation produced at heavy cost to the taxpayers to try to sell them that they have to pay more taxes. And lie any computer simulation, it is no more valid than the assumptions used to program it. If the assumptions are made up out of thin air (literally) the simulation, pretty as it is, is meaningless. Garbage in, garbage out! Carbon Dioxide is not a "key" driver of global warming. Certainly not compared to methane, water vapor, and solar output. Nor does Carbon Dioxide "take a toll" on Earth. It in in fact an essential part of the cycle of life on Earth!

Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler wonders why it’s so cold if global warming exists. Here’s the answer.

There are two options for what Hartzler, a Republican who represents Missouri's 4th District, hopes to accomplish here. The first is that she's making a joke about a serious environmental issue that has scientists around the world concerned about how mankind will fare under warmer conditions. We assume a member of Congress wouldn't make such a joke.

So let's assume Hartzler is actually wondering what happened to climate change (which is what conservative message-man Frank Luntz recommended Republicans call the effect). And for that we have an answer.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is the Washington Post, trying to slap down a Congresswoman for asking a prudent question, not by answering the question but by ridiculing her.

However, Congresswoman Hartzler is making a valid point. Back in March 20,2000 the UK Independent ran the banner headline "Snowfalls are now just a thing of the past." They were hardly alone in the proclamation that global warming meant snow and ice free winters.

We are now heading into yet another brutal winter and everyone who hitched their reputation to the human-caused global warming hoax (and its call for a carbon tax) are trying to save their reputations with ever-more fantastic reasons why we should ignore the evidence before our eyes and trust the pretty graphs and charts being wagged in front of us. The "explanations" for why we are seeing ever-colder winters in an age of human-caused global warming range from "The heat is hiding in the deep ocean" to "global warming CAUSES colder weather!"

Rest assured the defenders of the revealed dogma have plenty of impressive looking numbers to throw at you. On May 4th, 2014, a record high temperature was reported in Wichita, Kansas. What they did not mention was the temperature was recorded in the middle of the airport, surrounded by aircraft burning tons of kerosene. Another embarrassment we should all keep in mind is NOAA-16, a satellite sent up to prove the world was getting warmer, and indeed the data it provided did show higher temperatures ... until NOAA was forced to admit the satellite was defective and erased the data from their serves (which hasn't stopped the Carbonazis from continuing to cite that data as proof the world is warming).


Nov 19 09:15


You are witness to one of the greatest frauds perpetrated on the people of planet Earth, to trick them out of their money and into obedience under the guise of the fight against Human-Caused Global Warming (now rebranded "Human Caused Climate Change" to explain away the icicles we were told were not going to happen). The global warming scare was concocted out of outright lies, purchased science, and scare mongering to trick you into being willing to pay carbon taxes to solve a non-existent crisis you were told was all your fault. And, of course, to lull you into accepting the dictates of a global government that needed to save the Earth from you icky-poo human beings.

It was all a lie. Here is how it all happened.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Bump to the top as the all time record for most snow in a single 24 hour period gets shattered. 7 people (not counting the homeless) have died in the snowstorm in New York so far. More is on the way.

Meanwhile the Carbonazis are desperate to keep their human-caused global warming hoax (and the carbon tax) by claiming this extremely cold weather is just a "pause" that should not cause anyone to question or doubt the revealed dogma!

Senate Dems filibuster Keystone pipeline, delivering major win to environmentalists

Senate Democrats filibustered the Keystone XL pipeline on Tuesday, in a vote that reverberated from Louisiana, where a key senator’s career is now likely doomed, to the broader national Democratic Party, where environmentalists have emerged triumphant in a divisive internal battle with labor unions.

The Keystone vote had taken on symbolism far beyond the small impact on American crude supplies and the slight effect expected on gas prices, with environmentalists drawing lines and daring moderate and conservative Democrats to cross it. In the end most were unwilling to defy the ascendant movement, and they said it marked a key moment in the global warming debate.

With nasty cold fronts thrusting an icy and early winter across the continental U.S. — along with last winter described by USA Today as "one of the snowiest, coldest, most miserable on record" — climatologist John L. Casey thinks the weather pattern is here to stay for decades to come.

In fact, Casey, a former space shuttle engineer and NASA consultant, is out with the provocative book "Dark Winter: How the Sun Is Causing a 30-Year Cold Spell," which warns that a radical shift in global climate is underway, and that Al Gore and other environmentalists have it completely wrong.

Roads around Central Ohio became slick and snow covered early on Monday morning.

Many schools delayed or closed as the snow swept into the area.

The concern for Monday night is that the sludge on the roads will freeze and turn to ice as temperatures drop.

“Drive slow, and don't hit your breaks, because you'll spin out of control it's better to be slow and cautious and avoid the problem to begin with,” said Brooke Hannah of Pickaway County.

Commuters in parts of the Midwest faced a "treacherous commute" on Monday after the deadly storm tore through their area. Forecasters said a new temperature drop later in the day would be accompanied by up to three feet of lake effect snow around the Great Lakes over the next two days, with the heaviest dump coming from Cleveland, Ohio, to Buffalo, New York. "It's going to be painful," said Kevin Roth, lead meteorologist at The Weather Channel. "You're talking 24 to 36 inches coming down at a rate of up to five or six inches an hour—that's what we mean when we say intense."

FLASHBACK - NOAA BustedReported temps may be 10-15 degrees too high

US Government admits satellite temperature readings “degraded.” All data taken offline in shock move.

The fault was first detected after a tip off from an anonymous member of the public to climate skeptic blog Climate Change Fraud (9 Aug10).

National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), Program Coordinator, Chuck Pistis has now confirmed that the fast spreading story on the respected climate skeptic blog is true.

Pistis declined to state how long the fault might have gone undetected. Nor would the shaken spokesman engage in speculation as to the damage done to the credibility of a decade’s worth of temperature readings taken from the problematic ‘NOAA-16’ satellite.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As we head into a hard winter and the global warming cult is struggling to perpetuate their hoax and their demand for a carbon tax, I am being flooded with emails with the usual insistance that global warming produces cold weather and that I should ignore the fact that back in 2000 the Carbonazis were saying the exact opposite. After all, they only got "this one little thing" wrong. Which is like saying Challenger was a successful mission except for the part where it exploded. Yet another email accused me of not looking at the "Big Picture" and wagged the satellite temperature data at me. But as this article points out, the NOAA-16 satellite on which all the warning studies were based was defective and produced a decade's worth of data that was anywhere from 10 to 15 degrees warmer than the data recorded by ground stations. NOAA finally admitted there was a problem and deleted the data from their servers, yet the Carbonazis still cite it as a primary source for the claim that the Earth is warming even though we are clearly getting more snow and ice over the last several winters.

The Carbonazis have a problem. They can fake (and have been caught faking) high temperature data to push the human-caused global warming hoax, but they cannot deny the snow and ice that is clearly showing the opposite of their claims is true.

We are heading into a little ice age courtesy of lowered solar output and there isn't a thing the Carbonazis can do about it no matter how much of your money they defraud you of.

Polar vortex returns: Michigan winter will get off to very cold start

I've seen how the weather pattern has been evolving in the last two weeks, and I'm ready to stick my neck out and give a winter forecast for Michigan. I'll give you the reasons why I think we will have a certain type of winter here in Michigan.

First off, I like to wait until we get into early November to see what type of upper air pattern is becoming established. The top graphic shows the upper air flow forecast for next Tuesday, November 18, 2014. It's pretty apparent that the upper air flow next week is coming right out of the arctic. The large circular area you see over Hudson Bay is the polar vortex.

So the polar vortex is already dropping farther south than normal. Unless we have a radical upper air pattern change, it looks like we are heading for a much colder than normal start to the winter.

The solution to global warming, Olaf Schuiling says, lies beneath our feet.

"For Dr. Schuiling, a retired geochemist, climate salvation would come in the form of olivine, a green-tinted mineral found in abundance around the world. When exposed to the elements, it slowly takes carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.

Olivine has been doing this naturally for billions of years, but Dr. Schuiling wants to speed up the process by spreading it on fields and beaches and using it for dikes, pathways, even sandboxes. Sprinkle enough of the crushed rock around, he says, and it will eventually remove enough CO2 to slow the rise in global temperatures."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

You can absorb CO2 from the air using more green plants along those same walkways. In fact there is a story that one of Al Gore's minions calculated that a 15% increase in use of decorative plants would counter all of the CO2 increase seen in Al Gore's film, at which point he was fired, because reducing carbon was never the real agenda. Selling carbon credits was.

“We Are In The Bullseye!” Expert Warns, “By Midweek, All Hell’s Going To Break Loose!”

Michio Kaku joins CBS This Morning to warn 250 million Americans that “we are in the bullseye” and by midweek, “all hell’s going to break loose” as America prepares to be pummeled by something sounding almost Biblical, ‘BomboGenesis’. Kaku warns that air, train and vehicle traffic could be paralyzed next week, and schedules disrupted: “A massive disruption that will peak around November 13th to November 15th” Kaku informs us, before telling us that we could feel the ‘ripple effects’ throughout November.

Harsh Winter Outlook Made a Bit More Dire by Siberia Snow

Remember how evidence was mounting last month that early snowfall was accumulating across Siberia? And remember how there’s a theory that says this snowfall signals a cold winter?

So in the two and a half weeks since, the news for the winter-haters has, unfortunately, only gotten worse.

Study Says Natural Factors, Not Humans, Behind West Coast Warming

Oceanographers and atmospheric scientists are quick to say the warming waters are not linked to human-caused climate change, but also say what they've seen doesn't match other recognized patterns in ocean conditions.

Webmaster's Commentary: 


Or maybe we have a classic case of specialists being so specialized they don't see what they need to see.

Here is where "interdisciplinary" science becomes valuable.

In the illustration shown in the above article, note that the pattern of heat appears near New Guinea in the area of the Marianas trench. I have indicated the point of origin on the below copy.

Now, I have mentioned many times before that nobody knows how many active volcanoes and thermal vents there are on the floor of the world's oceans, but we do know where many of them are, as is indicated on this map from the USGS.

From the section indicated in detail it is clear that there are a great many volcanoes in the exact same area where the plume of warm water is appearing, which suggests that these volcanoes, rather than human activity or unknown ocean flow patterns, is what is pouring heat into the Pacific!

Sen. Inhofe, denier of human role in climate change, likely to lead environment committee

Sen. James M. Inhofe, an the Oklahoma Republican who once compared the Environmental Protection Agency to the gestapo, is likely to lead the Environment and Public Works Committee when the GOP takes control of the Senate next year.

If approved, Inhofe would replace Chairman Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.), an avowed environmentalist, producing one of the most stark post-election changes in the Capitol. Committee assignments will not be made until Senate party caucuses meet in Washington after the election recess.

No matter how much Tom Steyer spends, Florida isn’t buying climate disaster

Don’t Miss it! Climate Depot’s Factsheet on 1970s Coming ‘Ice Age’ Claims

Despite many claims to the contrary, the 1970?s global cooling fears were widespread among many scientists and in the media. Despite the fact that there was no UN IPCC organization created to promote global cooling in the 1970s and despite the fact that there was nowhere near the tens of billions of dollars in funding spent today to promote man-made global warming, fears of a coming ice age, showed up in peer-reviewed literature, at scientific conferences, voiced by prominent scientists and throughout the media.

Newsweek Magazine even used the climate “tipping point” argument in 1975. Newsweek wrote April 28, 1975 article: “The longer the planners delay, the more difficult will they find it to cope with climatic change once the results become grim reality.”

Early season snow storm causes widespread power outages

Winter came early this year when a snow storm on the heels of Halloween brought blizzard-like conditions, high winds and nearly a foot of snow to much of Waldo County and left tens of thousands of homes without power across the region.

Driving was treacherous throughout the area Sunday afternoon, Nov. 2, and into Monday morning. In several places, power and utility lines have been brought down by falling trees and limbs, high winds, and cars sliding into utility poles. Residents are warned not to touch or drive over downed lines.

Snow, Storm Winds to Slam Northeast in Early Winter Blast

An arctic blast that dumped historic early snow on parts of Tennessee, the Carolinas, and Georgia will bring a wintry storm to the Northeast on Sunday, forecasters said. Strong winds and rain mixing with snow could lead to power outages, coastal flooding and breach erosion in southeast New England, including Boston, said the Weather Channel’s Michael Palmer. Up to one foot of snow is expected in northern and eastern Maine before the storm moves into Maritime Canada on Sunday night and Monday.

Meanwhile freezing temperatures will grip the country for another day – all the way from the Great Lakes to south Florida. Record lows are possible for the South Sunday morning and in Florida, including areas all the way down to near Miami.

How deep is the snow in a northern region of Russia on the other side of the world?

It may seem like an odd question, but one of the factors that goes into a long-range winter outlook for Philadelphia's upcoming winter season is the amount of snow cover piling up this time of the year in Siberia.

And as it just so happens, Siberia's snow cover is rapidly increasing. This is significant because it's one of the signals that could lead to a potentially colder winter here.

Climate change PROVED to be 'nothing but a lie', claims top meteorologist

John Coleman, who co-founded the Weather Channel, shocked academics by insisting the theory of man-made climate change was no longer scientifically credible.

Instead, what 'little evidence' there is for rising global temperatures points to a 'natural phenomenon' within a developing eco-system.

In an open letter attacking the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, he wrote: "The ocean is not rising significantly.

"The polar ice is increasing, not melting away. Polar Bears are increasing in number.

"Heat waves have actually diminished, not increased. There is not an uptick in the number or strength of storms (in fact storms are diminishing).

"I have studied this topic seriously for years. It has become a political and environment agenda item, but the science is not valid."
