Australia - not so hot!


 UAH global satellite temperature data has been updated for December 2015. Considering that this is arguably the strongest El Nino yet rivalling 1998 it seems that the Australian December turned out pretty average contrary to the claims of our local Climerati.

Thought Police attack cartoonist!



Bill Leak, arguably Australia's best cartoonist has attracted the ire of offense seeking twits on social media with his biting comment on the Paris Climate boondoggle.
He has hit back in an excellent article in the Australian  :
I don’t know an associate professor of sociology at Macquarie University called Amanda Wise, but she knows me. She knows me so well, in fact, that she’s not only able to tell me what my cartoons mean, but she’s also able to tell me what I was thinking while I was drawing them.
There I was, naively thinking that if I drew a group of poor Indian people trying to eat solar panels contained in parcels sent to them by the UN anyone seeing the cartoon would assume it meant the people in it were hungry. But, no. What I thought I was thinking wasn’t what I was thinking at all. According to Ms Wise, my “unequivocally racist” cartoon drew on “very base stereotypes of third world, underdeveloped people who don’t know what to do with technology”.
These and other startling revelations were included in an article by Amanda Meade in The Guardian on Monday. As well as being sternly reminded by the shocked Ms Wise that my cartoon would be unacceptable in Britain, the US and Canada (heaven forbid!), I was also told my cartoon was “racist” by no less an authority than Yin Paradies of Deakin University, whose research includes the economic effects of racism.
Professor Paradies didn’t think I’d made the people in my cartoon look hungry, either, but rather, in my own twisted, racist way, I’d managed to portray not only them but the entire population of India as “too stupid to handle renewable energy”.
I’ve been reliably informed my cartoon also triggered a hostile response from the sanctimonious but bloodthirsty mob who spend their time trawling the internet looking for anything they find offensive to provide them with an opportunity to join the orgy of competitive compassion and moral grandstanding that is Twitter.
Such people, understandably, are probably on a bit of a high at the moment having just spent a couple of weeks watching heroic and revered climate scientists such as Leonardo DiCaprio, Sean Penn and Robert Redford spouting a series of hypocritical platitudes in Paris that culminated in world leaders signing up to an agreement to meet again in five years so they can sign another one, thereby saving the world from an impending environmental catastrophe. Again. No wonder they’re angry. First chance I get I spoil the party by reminding them that, back here, in the real world, there are billions of people who not only lack food, health, water and education, but also have no access to electricity, and more than 20 per cent of them live in India.
And there’s something obscene about the fact that there are billions of others who’ve had all those things all their coal-power-driven lives and they’re now distributing solar panels to the world’s poor because they think that provides a virtuous, if inadequate, form of electricity for which they should be grateful. I think that’s racist, I think it’s condescending, and I think it’s immoral. But it’s also the truth, and when an impertinent cartoonist dares to tell the truth these days he’d better watch out because telling the truth is a dangerously subversive thing to do.
It has the same ability to simultaneously shock some people while amusing others that four-letter words used to have when Lenny Bruce discovered he could use them to such devastating effect that his audiences would still be laughing while he was being dragged offstage by the police and arrested for obscenity.
In court, Bruce argued he was being denied his right to freedom of speech, and so he was. But I can’t help thinking he had it easy, living at a time when the only people who had to stand up for their rights to freedom of speech were comedians who wanted to say f. k in public.
And not only that, but the only people he had to worry about offending were undercover coppers in the audience whose job it was to be offended so they could arrest him for doing his job.
These days, the undercover policemen in the audience waiting for him to swear would be the least of his worries. They’d be outnumbered 100 to one by members of the Politically Correct Thought Police Task Force, all armed with iPhones and Twitter accounts, ready to pounce the moment he said something that might not necessarily offend them but could, potentially, offend someone else.
There’s no doubt the cartoon I drew for Monday’s paper offended a lot of people. While they might not have enjoyed looking at it, I’m quite sure they enjoyed using it as an excuse to parade their moral vanity.
And, while I prefer to discover there are people who think my cartoons are funny, I’d be lying if I said I didn’t derive a certain amount of pleasure from discovering they enrage the ones that don’t.

Hypocrite Alert

From Powerline.
Absolutely shameless!
US Secretary of  State John Kerry who has  been travelling the world pushing poor people to reduce their carbon footprint has a problem deciding where to lie his tired head with  five mansions and a  luxury yacht from which to choose. When asked how the new global climate deal will be enforced he replied "Public shaming" without seeing the irony.

Final Paris Data "adjustments"


With the Paris Climate boondoggle ready to start NASA has all it's ducks in a row with final data tampering completed. They have even managed to erase the "pause" which is accepted by scientists around the world. Real Science has the story:
2015-11-19-03-42-18
Somehow, they managed to calculate Earth’s temperature within 0.01 degrees – even though they had no temperature data for about half of the land surface, including none in Greenland and very little in Africa or Antarctica.
201510
This kind of mind-blowing malfeasance would get them fired and probably escorted out of the building by security at many engineering companies.
Satellites cover almost the entire planet several times a day, and they showed that October had only the 25th highest monthly anomaly, and that the first ten months of 1998 all had a higher anomaly than October 2015.
Not only do NASA and NOAA make up fake data for much of the planet, but they massively tamper with their existing data, like this station in Siberia where they have cooled the past nearly two degrees C since 2012 – and now claim that it is two degrees C above normal.
Zyrjanka2012-2015
The graph below shows the magnitude of their data tampering since 2012.
2015-11-19-04-16-48
By tampering with the station baseline, they created the large anomalies. Then they double down their fraud by smearing their bogus anomalies across 1200 km of missing data. This is needed to create their required fraudulent record temperature claims ahead of Paris.

Celebrate Carbon dioxide - giver of life!

This address by Patrick Moore , founder and leader of Greenpeace for decades is a must read for anyone wanting to understand the real effect of CO2 in our lives . The feral activists that control Greenpeace now bear no resemblance to it's founder and have completely lost sight of the noble goals it once espoused.

Plant growth showing effect of increasing CO2

There is certainty beyond any doubt that CO2 is the building block for all life on Earth and that without its presence in the global atmosphere at a sufficient concentration this would be a dead planet. Yet today our children and our publics are taught that CO2 is a toxic pollutant that will destroy life and bring civilization to its knees. Tonight I hope to turn this dangerous human-caused propaganda on its head. Tonight I will demonstrate that human emissions of CO2 have already saved life on our planet from a very untimely end. That in the absence of our emitting some of the carbon back into the atmosphere from whence it came in the first place, most or perhaps all life on Earth would begin to die less than two million years from today.

Arctic ice going gangbusters

Arctic ice area is currently at a ten year high much to the dismay of the climate doomsters who keep predicting it will disappear. This is not a good message for the scammers conference in Paris.


Meanwhile the "Arctic ice melting faster" false propaganda continues typified by a recent  Guardian  article complete with polar bear on an ice floe.
This year, full ice coverage – the point at which the ice reaches its peak an then starts melting – was reached on 25 February, more than two weeks before the expected date of Mmid-March.

Arctic Fraud!

"What is making the Arctic ice melt faster than expected" is the question asked by the Scripps Institution of Oceanography in an article complete with a picture of polar bears on an ice floe.



This is a particularly stupid question as anyone with a double digit IQ would research and know that the Arctic ice is currently staging a spectacular recovery and is at the highest extent in a decade. Obviously this would rule out climate "scientists".
 From Real Science:

Arctic ice thickness is up 40% in the past 4 years!

Coldest Winter in 50 Years? Trust the bookies , not climate "scientists"

Are we in for snowy winter?
The UK and much of Europe is battening down for what is predicted to be the coldest winter in 50 years  buried in what climate "scientists" call " a thing of the past".As we will have the largest global meeting of climate dimwits in Paris in the middle of this winter it will be interesting to hear how they blame the freeze on global warming. Bookies however who are risking their own money are banking on a white Christmas showing how much smarter they are than climate "scientists" who have their snouts into the Government trough.
Bookies have slashed the odds on a white Christmas after experts said that Britain could about to be hit by double winter whammy.
Yesterday warnings of a big freeze from the West led the bookies to cut the odds of snow on Christmas day from 5/1 to 2/1.
It comes a week after the early arrival of Berwick swans led nature experts to forecast an icy blast from the East causing the coldest winter for fifty years.
Scientists say temperatures in 1,500-mile wide stretch of the Atlantic Ocean reached an 80 year low between January to August this year, meahing colder than usual westerly winds.
They say the melting of the Greenland ice cap could have have slowed the Gulf Stream, which pushes warm currents towards Britain.
AccuWeather meteorologist Tyler Roys said: 'We'll see full-on cold spells.Northern England faces colder-than-normal periods, some of which could affect southern England, and Scotland is forecast a colder than normal winter."
He says minimum temperatures of -8C to -21C are possible.
The news comes a week after nature experts predicted that Britain is facing its longest winter in 50 years because of the earliest-ever arrival of a Siberian swan bringing heralding an unusual cold front from the East.
Normally the swawns migrate 2,500 miles from Arctic Russia to the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust reserve at Slimbridge to escape the cold front.
 PS: It seems the Orwellian warmist crew have been at it again and Viner's statement that "snow will be a thing of the past" has been erased . However thanks to the internet ,here it is from an article in the Independent in 2000.
According to Dr David Viner, a senior research scientist at the climatic research unit (CRU) of the University of East Anglia,within a few years winter snowfall will become “a very rare and exciting event”.
“Children just aren’t going to know what snow is,” he said.

Hottest Year Ever - Update

Early snow and freeze in Europe is now followed in the US with early snow and icy temperatures in the mid-west and New England. Boston has coldest day on record on October 18. I thought that global warming  was supposed to cause winter to arrive later according to climate "scientists".

Fall meets Winter as a car, covered in a couple of inches of snow in Vermont, also gets a sprinkling of Fall leaves

From the Daily Mail

Winter comes early: NYC plummets to 43F and Boston has coldest October 18 on record as icy blast sends temperatures plunging across the North East and Midwest 

  • The cold front dropped temperatures into the 30s and below in some areas 
  • New Jersey was 15 degrees colder than expected this time of year in 40s
  • Boston recorded it coldest October 18 temperature ever at just 45 degrees
  • Marquette, Michigan, hit 27 degrees and about 2.5 inches of snow fell 
  • The last time the city had two inches or more in October was in 2001 
  • Weekend temperatures hit freezing or below in cities around US like Minneapolis, Chicago, Cincinnati, Buffalo, Hartford and Pittsburgh

September Record Claims


The Sydney Morning Herald headlines that September global temperatures have set a new record high which feeds into the alarmist propaganda buildup for the Paris climate meeting in December.
However as usual the truth is somewhat different. The accurate RSS satellite temperature record shows that September was the 4th highest for the satellite data which is not unexpected with the strong El Nino effect.

Meanwhile the pause continues with the globe actually cooling over the last decade contrary to claims by alarmists.
