Twenty Years Of The Same Climate Stupid

Real Science

Exactly 20 years ago, the East Coast was hit by a huge blizzard similar to what is forecast this weekend. Climate experts immediately blamed it on global warming.

Four years later, experts said that children just won’t know what snow is.


Monday 20 March 2000

the warming is so far manifesting itself more in winters which are less cold than in much hotter summers. 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.

Five years later the IPCC said that global warming will reduce cold and heavy snowstorms.

Wind farm study finally recognizes that all is not well with wind power

Watts Up With That?


Recognizing health concerns in wind energy development a key recommendation in new study

As wind energy development blossoms in Canada and around the world, opposition at the community level is challenging the viability of the industry. A new study with research from the University of Waterloo, published in Nature Energy, identifies four major factors leading to disputes over wind farms, and offers recommendations on avoiding disagreements.

The research project focuses on the province of Ontario. It lists socially mediated health concerns, distribution of financial benefits, lack of meaningful engagement and failure to treat landscape concerns seriously, as the core stumbling blocks to a community’s acceptance of wind energy development.

“There has been debate over whether reported negative health outcomes in nearby residents are valid” says Tanya Christidis, a PhD researcher at Waterloo’s School of Planning, who contributed to the study by looking specifically at the health…

Remember those tarballs that washed ashore during Isaac – that’s nothing compared to Natural oil pollution

Watts Up With That?

I’m sure you’ve seen the picture of tarballs on the beach splashed all over the MSM after hurricane Isaac came ashore in Louisiana. The left leaning website Think Progress (parent of Joe Romm’s Climate Progress) framed it this way:

A Greenpeace research team took samples from beaches along the Alabama coast on September 2, including from an area with hundreds of tar balls in the Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge.

Hundreds of tar balls on the beach at Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge, Alabama on September 2, 2012

Reuters was still pushing the story yesterday. CBS News says:

Tests run by Louisiana State University for state wildlife officials confirmed that oil found on Elmer’s Island and Grand Isle matched the biological fingerprint of the hundreds of millions of gallons of oil that spewed from BP’s Macondo well.

If it is Hot, it is Climate, if it is Cold, its Climate

I told them they’d get “payback”. 🙂

For those that were complaining about the warm December weather: “Are you happy now?”

Btw, someone should check to see if Al Gore was on the East coast recently.

Watts Up With That?


Guest essay by Eric Worrall

Remember all the recent press about the mild winter, how the bears were waking up early, flowers blooming in December, all a sign of the coming global warming apocalypse?

Now that winter has turned cold and snowy, this is also being seen in some quarters, as irrefutable proof of our unnatural tampering with the balance of nature.

Sorry! Winter Storm Jonas doesn’t make climate change a liberal hoax

Good news, folks! It turns out that climate change is a big ol’ liberal hoax after all. Need proof? Just look out your window: If you’re anywhere east of Tupelo, you’re probably seeing a bunch of white stuff falling from the sky, compliments of Winter Storm Jonas. We call that “snow,” and it proves once and for all that “global warming” is a conspiracy dreamed up by known communist Al Gore to bring down the world economy…

2015 – the Coolest Hottest Year Ever!

Friends of Science Calgary

The media is full of stories about 2015 being the hottest year ever.

Tweeter Tom Nelson found out that’s a farce!  He tweeted:

“. bombshell: Earth COOLED 3.83F from 1997’s 62.45F to 2015’s 58.62F”

along with these two images showing the stated temps of 2015….and those from the NOAA archive of 1997….


Friends of Science Society’s resident scientific adviser Norm Kalmanovitch, P. Geoph. explains a few other things about ‘hottest year on record…”

Like…So What?

Climate change is not about a single year, but about a pattern of climate over years and decades. Here’s what Norm had to say on the topic:


The issue is called “climate change” and climate is the long term weather so whether or not 2015 was the warmest year is irrelevant to claims of catastrophic global warming being caused by CO2 emissions. El Niño conditions occurred in 1998, 2010 and 2015…

Yet another prediction of doom over Greenland ice melt and the AMOC that we can ignore

Watts Up With That?

From the “fresh melt water will disrupt the planet” department, except that this ongoing alarm has already been debunked by NASA, see: NASA refutes Mann and Rahmstorf – Finds Atlantic ‘Conveyor Belt’ Not Slowing

How the Wind Industry Rigged Noise ‘Rules’ to Destroy Neighbours’ Lives


insomnia The Wind Industry: happily destroying neighbours’
ability to sleep under its own ‘rules’ since 1995.


In our timeline post – Three Decades of Wind Industry Deception: A Chronology of a Global Conspiracy of Silence and Subterfuge – we covered the fact that – from 1995 – the wind industry drew together a hand-picked team with a mission to write noise rules with absolutely no relevance to wind turbine noise; and, therefore, of no benefit to wind farm neighbours (with predictable and soul-destroying results). Here’s an extract from it:

The NASA Research

Starting in the early 1980s, a decade’s worth of research was undertaken by NASA into a series of large wind turbines (then being developed by NASA), which included a stellar cast of physicists, meteorologists, geophysicists, seismologists, engineers (both mechanical and acoustic), and psycho-acousticians. Part of that research involved a multidisciplinary effort to identify the causes of complaints made…

Failed Math: In 1997, NOAA claimed that the Earth was 3.83 degrees warmer than today

Watts Up With That?

Steve McIntyre always told us to “watch the pea under the thimble” when it comes to climate change pronouncements, this is one of those cases. Yesterday, to much media fanfare, wailing, and gnashing of teeth NOAA pronounced that 2015 was the hottest year on record, ever! There’s only one problem with that…the Internet never forgets. Back in 1997 after the super El Nino made global temperatures soar, NOAA/NCDC produced this report:


Source: (h/t to Tom Nelson)

Archived here:

In that 1997 report, they say clearly that the Global Average Temperature (GAT) was 62.45°F, based on a 30-year average (1961-1990) of the combined land and sea surface temperatures. Since we know the 1997 El Nino caused a record high spike in temperature, that means that for that 30 year period, there was no warmer GAT than 62.45°F up until that time.

Yet in 2015, the claim for the “warmest ever” GAT…

Wind Turbines are supposed to save CO2


deicing wind turbines

The energy required for a helicopter to de-ice all the blades on a wind farm must outweigh any supposed saving in CO² by a factor of 100 or more. Notwithstanding that no wind farm has saved a gram of CO² due to construction and the necessary spinning reserve.


The entire rational for wind turbines is to stop global warming by reducing the amount of Co2 being returned to the atmosphere from the burning of fossil fuels.

In the attached picture, recently taken in Sweden, freezing cold weather has caused the rotor blades of a wind turbine to ice up bringing the blades to a complete stop.

To fix the “problem” a helicopter is employed (burning aviation fuel) to spray hot water (which is heated in the frigid temperatures using a truck equipped with a 260 kW oil burner) on the blades of the turbine…
