Open Thread

Until March 2014, Jennifer Marohasy rarely edited comment threads instead asking for tolerance including of offensive comments. At about that time she decided to ‘reclaim’ her blog that was by now dominated by some intent on wrecking any attempt at rational and constructive dialogue, which was not in accordance with the mainstream consensus on climate change.

    I’ve just edited both comments by Neville because they contained slander. In future such comments may simply be deleted.

    Sooner or later a qualified person should look at the CAGW iconography and call out the liars and fraudsters.
    There has been ZIP SS warming for about 15 years, but RSS none at all for 17.5 years.

    SLR trends the same from 1920 to 1950 as the more recent trends. In fact a number of new studies show a decleration in the SLR trend.

    Even the IPCC doesn’t see any increase in extreme weather events.

    Greenland was warmer for thousands of years in earlier Holocene than today as was the Antarctic.

    SL was at least 1.5 metres higher 4,000 years ago.

    The LIA was the longest/coldest period in the NH over the entire holocene. But it seems the dummies think that period was a warmist’s wet dream.

    Polar bear numbers have increased from 5,000 to 20 to 25,000 today. That 400% to 500% increase is a remarkable result in just 50 to 60 years.

    New RS and NAS report ( with input from the RC
    TEAM) proves there is nothing we can do about co2 levels for thousands of years. So zip mitigation by 3100 or 4100 or 5100.
    And that’s if the entire Aco2 emissions are stopped TODAY. IOW we could all vanish from the planet and it still wouldn’t matter at all.

    Good recent increase in Tibetan glaciers.

    Thanks Jen. I had got to the point of reading your posts but completely avoiding the comments. It is possible to disagree without being disagreeable.

    Hi Jennifer,
    Here’s an article about how the seasonal forecast for the USA at Farmers Almanac outperformed the one at NOAA.

    Report: Farmers’ Almanac more accurate than government climate scientists

    This exceptionally cold and snowy winter has shown that government climate scientists were dead wrong when it came to predicting just how cold this winter would be, while the 197-year old Farmers’ Almanac predicted this winter would be “bitterly cold”.

    Bloomberg Businessweek reports that the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Climate Prediction Center (CPC) predicted temperatures would be “above normal from November through January across much of the lower 48 states.”

    This, however, was dead wrong. As Bloomberg notes, the CPC underestimated the “mammoth December cold wave, which brought snow to Dallas and chilled partiers in Times Square on New Year’s Eve.”

    Read more here.

    And here’s the Wiki article on Farmers Almanac:

    Farmers’ Almanac

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Farmers’ Almanac is an annual North American periodical that has been in continuous publication since 1818. Published by the Almanac Publishing Company of Lewiston, Maine, it is famous for its long-range weather predictions and astronomical data, as well as its trademark blend of humor, trivia, and advice on gardening, cooking, fishing, and human interest. Conservation, sustainable living, and simple living are core values of the publication and its editors, and these themes are heavily promoted in every edition.

    In addition to the popular U.S. version, the Almanac Publishing Company also publishes the Canadian Farmers’ Almanac and a promotional version that businesses can personalize and distribute to customers. The total annual distribution of all Farmers’ Almanac editions is more than 4 million copies.

    Read more here.

    Larry’s comment: I couldn’t help but notice that FA does not have an Australian edition. Yet.

    I also know someone whose seasonal forecasts for Qld outperform those of the BOM. She also has quite a bit of experience writing for country people in her column at The Land. She may be able to create a job for herself (in the spirit of What Color is Your Parachute?) at Farmers Almanac.

    On the other hand, I don’t know if her demanding her research schedule would leave sufficient time for being an editor or major contributor to a future Farmers Almanac, Australian Edition.

    But if that career option pans out, it would lend more gravitas to her outstanding articles on evidence-based environmental policy.

    Another factual post from the Bolter. But personally I don’t care whether the term CC or C variability is used as long as people are aware that the mitigation of CAGW is a fraud and a complete waste of billions of $ for zero return.

  10. Neville March 6, 2014 at 7:26 am #

    More stupid idiocy about SLR from the Nat geo mag. Anthony easily refutes their nonsense using facts and proper measurement.

  11. Neville March 6, 2014 at 7:48 am #

    Another top post from Jo Nova about fraudulent co2 markets.

    Happily we can now quote the latest RS and NAS report that states there is nothing we can do to mitigate AGW for thousands of years.
    The Labor and Green fraud that we should “tackle CC or take action on CC” is absurd and just guarantees we will waste billions $ every year for a zero return. Money flushed straight down the drain.

    Handjive at Jo Nova explains how to make billions from the AGW mitigation fraud.

    Titans of EU Industry: Green Follies Are Killing Us

    “EU leaders must address rising energy prices and climate policies which are crippling the bloc’s manufacturing sector, according to a manifesto signed by more than 100 industry bosses.

    One hundred and thirty seven chief executives, including the heads of Tata Steel, Arcelor Mittal, and Rio Tinto, signed up to a paper published by the International Federation of Industrial Energy Consumers (IFIEC) Europe on Thursday (27 February).”
    . . .
    Wait a second … Tata Steel. Sounds familiar.

    “A Mumbai-based Indian multinational conglomerate with business ties to Rajendra K. Pachauri, the chairman since 2002 of the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, or IPCC

    In 1974, the TATA Group provided the financial resources to found the Tata Energy Research Institute, or TERI, a policy organization headquartered in New Dehli, India, of which Pachauri has been chairman since the group was formed.

    The Tata Group headquartered in Mumbai anticipates receiving windfall profits of up to nearly $2 billion from closing the Corus Redcar steelmaking plant in Britain, with about half of the savings expected to result from cashing in on carbon credits granted the steelmaker by the European Union under the EU’s emissions trading scheme, or ETS.“

    Climate sensitivity to more co2 seems to be much lower than the IPCC estimates. Big surprise.

  14. Graeme M March 7, 2014 at 5:45 am #

    I’m sure this has been covered here or elsewhere but I must have missed it. Like the global temp anomaly over time, is there a single combined Australian Average Surface Temperature Anomaly? That is, a graph of the average anomaly since 1910?

    I am pretty familiar with the standard global graph that shows the movement of that anomaly over time but can’t recall having seen one for Australia as a whole.

    In fact, I’d be most interested in seeing one for each of the major land masses, too!

    from Spangled Drongo…

    Great weeping, wailing and wetting of beds at our ABC tonight with the usual useful idiots leading the charge.

    Coral just won’t handle 2c of warming and the MDB is DOOMED, I tell ya:

    And there I was thinking they might have mentioned a couple of expert IPCC reviewers who recently reported on the climate being less sensitive to CO2.

    But I suppose it could happen.

    Couldn’t it?
