Summary of Updates to the Information Pages
12 Sep 2017 - Hurricanes Bring Out Extremists Like Jay Inslee
Harvey and Irma have brought out the extremists with their fear-mongering. Washington State Governor, Jay Inslee is one who is very confused by the science. The new Hurricane Inslee page examines the actual hurricane data, along with Jay Inslee's statements. Washington State climate is also examined, along with Inslee who thinks politicians should be disqualified from running for office if they are not green believers.
1 Sep 2017 - Are Urban Rats Increasing Due to Global Warming?
A New Republic article says that urban rats are increasing in the US due to warmer winter temperatures. An examination of the actual rat and temperature data contradicts this alarmist assumption. The new Rats page examines the rat and temperature data. The alarmists have it wrong again.
5 Aug 2014 - Washington's Jay Inslee Admits Using the Billionaires Club to Buy Elections
A NY Times article says that Washington State Governor Jay Inslee plans to buy elections in the state using funding from groups identified in the Senate report on the "Environmental Chain of Command". His planned alarm is ocean acidification and dying oysters. The new Inslee's Billions page examines the Billionaires Club and Puget Sound acidification.
16 Jun 2014 - Obama Declares that Denying AGW is Saying the Moon is Made of Cheese
In a speech to graduates at UC Irvine, Obama declared that denying AGW is like saying the moon is made of cheese. While I haven't been to the moon, many of those that have, say that AGW is a government ploy. The new Obama's Cheese page examines the astronauts and their denial.
12 Jan 2013 - US Had 'Hottest' Year in 2012, Globally: Not So, Adjustments Continue
NOAA declared 2012 the hottest year in the US, Globally not. But UK Met Office declares global warming has stopped. The new Warming 2012 page examines the US and global temperature data and the data adjustments involved to produce warming. Without the extensive data adjustments 2012 is the same as 1934 in the US.
22 Dec 2012 - The IPCC AR5 Report - Climate Models Fail
The upcoming IPCC AR5 report was leaked and shows the failure of climate models. The new IPCC AR5 - Fail page examines the report in terms of temperature projections and sea level projections. Both show the failure of climate models when compared with climate observations.
10 Sep 2012 - Obama Has Saved us from Global Warming
President Obama promised that his election would be the turning point in stopping climate problems. The new Mission Accomplished page examines his successes, and he has accomplished the mission. He has stopped global warming in its tracks. The problem is, he hasn't even noticed.
9 Jan 2012 - New Scafetta Paper Confirms 60-Year Cycle
Nicola Scafetta has published a new report confirming the 60-year climate cycle. See the updated Sixty Year Cycle page with details. In addition he provides temperature projections using an astronomical harmonic model developed from the cycles. The model is compared to the GCM models used by the IPCC. See the updated Temperature Projections page with details.
25 Jun 2011 - IPCC 1995 Predictions - Complete Failure
The IPCC published the Second Assessment Report in 1996. New York Times reported predictions of widespread climate disruption based on the IPCC report. An examination of the IPCC predictions over the past 15 years indicates that the IPCC has complete failure in their ability to predict climate. See the IPCC 1995 - Fail page with details.
24 May 2011 - Cascades Snowpack Related to PDO / ENSO not CO2
Alarmists (and Democratic politicians) claim that the Cascades Mountain snowpack has declined by 50% since 1950 due to global warming. The actual data show that it has been increasing since 1978. The annual fluctuations in snowpack are related to the Pacific Decadal Oscillation (PDO) and El Nino / Southern Oscillation (ENSO). See the Cascades Snowpack page with details.
21 May 2011 - Arctic Warming Related to AMO not CO2
Global warming is actually an Arctic phenomenon. The temperature data show a clear cyclical trend - the pattern of the 1930s-40s matches the 1990s-2000s warming. James Hansen claims that the 1930s warming was natural but the recent warming is due to CO2. The Arctic trend matches the Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation (AMO). See the Arctic Cycles page with details.
30 Apr 2011 - Alarmists Erroneously Blame Tornadoes on Global Warming
A record number of tornadoes hit the southeast US in April 2011. Although this region has had no warming, alarmists try to blame the tornadoes on global warming. A look at actual data shows a declining trend in the number of strong tornadoes. These correlate with La Nina. See the Tornado Lies page with details.
18 Apr 2011 - Satellite Sea Level Data - No Change in Rate
Satellite sea level data exist for almost 20 years now. During that time the rate of sea level rise has essentially been constant. Although the rate gives 10 inches of rise to the end of the century, alarmists continue to exaggerate. See the Satellite Sea Level page with details.
16 Apr 2011 - UN Climate Refugee Claims Debunked
The United Nations claimed there would be 50 million climate refugees by 2010. The Red Cross says the number of climate refugees is bigger than due to war and persecution. As usual - examination of the details of the claims exposes the lies of the alarmists. See the Global Warming Refugees page with details.
27 Mar 2011 - The US Has No Significant Warming
With US environmental alarmists and Democratic politicians crying fire, one would think the US has been warming. The actual data shows otherwise. In 1989 NOAA said there had been no significant warming, which Hansen said was a statistical fluke. With only abut 15% of the world exhibiting warming, the US is the statistical norm. See the US - No Warming page with details.
22 Mar 2011 - Bill McKibben - Alarmist Supreme, Gets His Facts Wrong
Bill McKibben has major outlets at the major left-wing publications and promotes the anthropogenic global warming agenda. He neglects to check the actual data or facts when making his alarmist claims. His recent Guardian article is shown here to be full of, well, Al-Gore-isms (lies). See the Bill McKibben page with details.
18 Mar 2011 - Alarmists Blame Earthquakes on Global Warming
The major Japan earthquake has re-kindled alarmist claims that global warming causes earthquakes (as usual, contrary to the data). They apparently don't understand continental isostatic rebound or the fact that historical data exist. Greenland ice sheet mass balance is not what they claim. See the Earthquakes page with details.
16 Mar 2011 - Alarmists Blame Arctic Ozone Decline on Global Warming
With a record decline in Arctic ozone, apparently now it is global warming causing it - not CFCs. Alarmists say Arctic winters are cooling (contrary to the data) and neglect the data showing connections to ENSO or other factors. The Arctic winter temperatures exhibit the 60-year climate cycle. See the Arctic Ozone Scare page with details.
12 Mar 2011 - 2010 Climate Data Updated
The NOAA GHCN and Hadley/CRU CRUTEM3 and HadSST2 data have been updated in the AIS climate data visualizer. Data for all of 2010 are now included in the graphing database. See the Data Update page with details. This page also provides a brief comparison of Arctic temperatures through 2010 in GHCN vs CRUTEM3.
5 Mar 2011 - Congress Tries to Rein in EPA
The EPA claims to be protecting health while admitting to causing increased mortality. Congress would like to rein in the EPA by limiting its regulation of CO2. Waxman ignores the fact that his state has had no warming over the last 80 years and Obama thinks CO2 pollutes drinking water. See the Congress - EPA page with details.
2 Mar 2011 - Australia Flooding - Jan 2011
While alarmists blame the Australian flooding on global warming, NASA and the Australian BOM blame La Nina. Contrary to alarmists' claims, the number of tropical cyclones in Australia has been decreasing during the global warming era, as has flooding in general. See the Australia Flood page with details.
1 Mar 2011 - Reuters - Creating Alarmist Propaganda
Reuters has been promoting global warming alarmism by twisting facts and making false statements. They misrepresent a study of the cost of global warming, they misrepresent sea level changes for Pacific Islands and they mis-portray the discovery of a monkey population as victims of global warming. See the Reuters Alarm page with details.
17 Feb 2011 - Kiribati - Forget the Data, NPR Says They're Sinking
NPR says Kiribati is sinking - which contradicts the data and studies that show the islands are growing. NPR says the islanders' faith prevents them from accepting the science of global warming. But it is NPR's faith in global warming that prevents them from reporting the data. See the Kiribati page with details.
16 Feb 2011 - Arctic Oscillation Regime Shift - UV Connection
The Arctic Oscillation (AO) exhibited a regime shift in 1988/89 putting it in mainly positive territory for the next two decades resulting in warmer temperatures (it has more recently dropped to negative bringing cold winters). The shift appears to be related to changes in solar UV irradiance. See the AO Regime Shift page with details.
9 Feb 2011 - US Snow and Cold - Al Gore Misleads Again
Although many mainstream media outlets correctly attributed the January 2011 cold and snow in the Eastern US to the Arctic Oscillation (AO), Al Gore says it's global warming. The AO index decreased through 2010 resulting in a weakened polar vortex and blocking pattern. See the US Snow January 2011 page with details.
16 Jan 2011 - Satellite Temperatures - 2010 Tied With 1998
Satellite-based global temperature measurements have now been recorded for 30 years (a standard definition of climate is weather averaged over 30 years - so now there is enough satellite data for 1 climate data point). 2010 ties 1998 for the highest annual average within the 30 years of satellite data. See the Satellite Temperatures page with details.
2 Jan 2011 - FAO Smarter than the IPCC
The UN IPCC misrepresents the climate data and create artificial acceleration by calculating short term linear trends within cyclical data. The UN FAO recognized the cyclical nature and developed fishery prediction models based on the 55-60-year cycle. The ACI was used to identify the cycle. See the Fish Cycles page with details.
31 Dec 2010 - Union of Concerned Scientists Makes Unrealistic Claims
The Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS) Climate Choices web site makes claims about the Northeast US having hotter summers, warmer winters, earlier springs. These urgent phenomena are all because of heat-trapping emissions. An examination of the actual data indicates their concerns are unwarranted. See the Northeast US page with details.
12 Dec 2010 - Bolivia's Morales - A Victim of Climate Change
Bolivia's president Morales says they are victims of climate change (fish are dying from frost) and the rich must pay for these convulsions of planet Earth. An examination of the data shows a cooling trend in Bolivia. Droughts occurring in the Altiplano are a regular feature of that arid area. See the Bolivia page with details.
8 Dec 2010 - Seychelles Using Cancun Conference to Try to Scam Money
The Seychelles delegates claim they will be drowning if the rich countries don't pay up. Their drought problems are due to lack of reservoirs. Sea level is not rising significantly since neither Antarctica nor Greenland is melting in a significant way. See the new Seychelles page with details.
6 Dec 2010 - Alarmist George Monbiot Blames God for Disrupting COP 15/16
Guardian columnist George Monbiot says cold weather in rich countries during the Copenhagen and now Cancun conferences is God interfering with the process. He believes in global warming for purposes of social justice, which is needed for wealth redistribution. See the new Monbiot/God page with details.
21 Nov 2010 - Clouds Have Net Negative Feedback - Problem With IPCC Models
The IPCC says the sensitivity of climate to changes in GHG depends on cloud feedbacks - the area of greatest uncertainty in the models. Evidence shows that clouds have a net negative feedback. Tropical Pacific cloud cover correlates (inversely) with global temperature. See the new Clouds page with details.
20 Nov 2010 - IPCC Official Says AGW is about Wealth Redistribution
IPCC official Ottmar Edenhofer admits the truth - "one must say clearly that we redistribute de facto the world's wealth by climate policy". He said Africa will be the big winner and huge amounts of money will flow there. He also questions whether they can handle the money responsibly. See the United Nations page with details.
15 Nov 2010 - Lebanon - Reuters Alarm
Reuters says Lebanon's snow and cedars are threatened by insidious climate change. An examination of the data shows winters have not been getting warmer and the deforestation is caused by non-CO2 anthropogenic influences (agriculture, urban sprawl, fuel wood, etc.) Sea levels have not been rising but are somehow a threat. See the Lebanon page with details.
14 Nov 2010 - Global Warming Fear
The IPCC chairman Pachauri says fear defines danger in global warming (in normal situations, it's the other way around). Psychologists are benefiting from promoting the fear and now treating "eco-anxiety". Bloomberg confirms the trend to use the scam to promote a totalitarian state. See the Fear page with details.
10 Nov 2010 - United Nations Wants Global Taxes to Fund Itself and Africa
The UN climate change panel says global taxes must be created and used as a deterrent to producing the gases blamed for global warming and to raise revenue. Ethiopia's Prime Minister Zenawi is a panel leader and says the money is for global justice (although his country has one of the highest population growth rates in the world). See the UN Global Tax page with details.
7 Nov 2010 - Hawaii Has Had No Warming For More Than 40 Years
Hawaii temperatures have shown no warming since 1965. But the National Park Service wants to reduce CO2 emissions in the Volcanoes NP park even though the volcano's emissions are more than 660 times as large as the auto emissions (more wasted tax money). See the Hawaii page with details.
4 Nov 2010 - South Dakota Winter Temperature Related to ENSO
South Dakota indians are vulnerable to winter exposure, while the winters there have been warming on average. Alarmists confuse El Nino/La Nina with global warming, while South Dakota's winter temperatures track the ENSO index. See the South Dakota page with details.
3 Nov 2010 - Bangladesh Vulnerability Due to Overpopulation Not AGW
Bangladesh is considered to be one of the countries that is most vulnerable to the effects of global warming due to sea level rise. The sea level data show no significant rise, while the land area has actually been increasing over the past century. Overpopulation and increased urbanization is resulting in land subsidence in the cities. See the Bangladesh page with details.
31 Oct 2010 - CO2 Increases Agricultural Productivity
USDA scientists say crop production is increasing due to warmer weather in North Dakota and Minnesota - where it is essentially unchanged. Elsewhere in the world primary productivity in increasing - except in central Africa where forests are being burned for fuel. See the Agricultural Productivity page with details.
30 Oct 2010 - BP - The President's Other Utility
The alarmists' double standards are again exposed in their claiming that BP is funding senators who oppose climate action. BP was also one of Obama's major sources of fundng along with his other utility - Exelon. See the Double Standard page with updated information on this.
21 Oct 2010 - The So-Called Vulnerable Countries Want More Money
The most vulnerable are "small island states and African nations" and the rich countries are not paying enough. See the Climate Cash page examining the claims of two of the most vulnerable: Maldives has a strong economy and is only threatened by its own mining of coral; Liberia has increased its population by 75% in 10 years.
8 Oct 2010 - Further Evidence Belief in AGW is Part of Eco-Religion
"Environmentalism is progressively taking the social form of a religion and fulfilling some of the individual needs associated with religion, with major political and policy implications. We are all energy sinners, doomed to die, unless we seek salvation, which is now called sustainability" - see the updated Climatism / EcoReligion page.
22 Sep 2010 - California Tries to Adapt to Imaginary Warming
California has developed an Adaptation Strategy. It calls for a 10-fold increase in the rate of sea level rise (which is unchanged over the last century). There has been no warming in California (with temperature directly related to PDO and Los Angeles cooling for the last 30 years). See the California Adaptation page for details.
21 Sep 2010 - Grist Shows Its Ignorance About Texas
The alarmist Grist accuses all Texas GOP politicians of being zombies since they don't believe in global warming. There's a good reason. An examination of Texas climate data shows (like most of the US) no warming and no significant change in precipitation. See the Texas page for details.
20 Sep 2010 - UN Blames Rwanda Floods on Global Warming
The United Nations says the Rwandan communities in Gishwati are "ravaged by climate change". Although Rwanda has no climate history data, other sources say that the environmental mess in the most densely populated country in Africa is due to deforestation. See the Rwanda page for details.
17 Sep 2010 - Psychologists Milk AGW and Promote the Scare
Psychologists are on the AGW gravy train with conferences to promote behavior change. The Climate Change Communication Advisory Group says they have to convince people to relinquish "cherished freedoms (such as to fly)". They encourage people to demonstrate over the lack of progress. See the Psychology page with details.
6 Sep 2010 - Mongolia Desertification Due to Overgrazing, Not AGW
Mongolian officials staged desert theater to blame desertification on global warming. Studies of the region show that while there has been no decline in precipitation, the increased number of grazing animals exceeds the carrying capacity. Another case of a country trying to blame others and scam money. See the Mongolia page with details.
4 Sep 2010 - Horseshoe Crab Decline Not Due to Global Warming
A recent study of horseshoe crab decline on the east coast of the United States implicates global warming. A study of the regional summer sea surface temperature data shows no unprecedented warming. Another false alarm. Horseshoe crabs have survived millions of years of climate change. See the Horseshoe Crab page with details.
2 Sep 2010 - Hot July in U.S. Not Due to Global Warming
July 2010 saw heat waves in the eastern United States, leading alarmists to say it was due to global warming. A study of the regional July temperature data shows July 2010 was only hot in the regions that have no warming trend. It was normal in most regions in the US. No evidence of July 2010 in the US being part of any global warming trend. See the United States, July 2010 page with details.
1 Sep 2010 - IPCC Misleads on African Agriculture
The IAC reviewed IPCC's methods: their uncertainty assessment lead to "unnecessary errors. For example, authors reported high confidence in statements for which there is little evidence, such as the widely-quoted statement that agricultural yields in Africa might decline by up to 50 percent by 2020." See the new IPCC / African Agriculture page with details.
