400 PPM CO2 Update!

Real Science

  • Coldest summer on record at the North Pole
  • Highest August Arctic ice extent since 2006
  • Record high August Antarctic ice extent
  • No major hurricane strikes for eight years
  • Slowest tornado season on record
  • No global warming for 17 years
  • Second slowest fire season on record
  • Four of the five snowiest northern hemisphere winters have occurred since 2008

The CO2 scam is a thing of the past!

Denmark gets a dose of global cooling in major newspaper

Watts Up With That?

Major Danish Daily Warns: “Globe May Be On Path To Little Ice Age…Much Colder Winters…Dramatic Consequences”!

Another major European media outlet is asking: Where’s the global warming?

Image right: The August 7 edition of Denmark’s Jyllands-Posten, featured a major 2-page article on the globe’s 15-years of missing warming and the potential solar causes and implications.

Moreover, they are featuring prominent skeptic scientists who are warning of a potential little ice age and dismissing CO2 as a major climate driver. And all of this just before the release of the IPCC’s 5AR, no less!

Hat-tip: NTZ reader Arne Garbøl

The August 7 print edition of the Danish Jyllands-Posten, the famous daily that published the “Muhammad caricatures“, features a full 2-page article bearing the headline: ”The behavior of the sun may trigger a new little ice age” followed by the sub-headline: “Defying all predictions…

Follow up: the bogus ‘North Pole becomes a lake’ story

Watts Up With That?

Remember this Associated Press before and after image that purportedly showed the North Pole turning into a lake due to “global warming”?

North Pole Lake

This was the day Brad Johnson of “Forecast the Facts” (a political group affiliated with the Center for American Progress and paid to harass TV weathercasters and meteorologists who don’t share their melting world view) made himself look like the complete idiot we know him to be. Observe the propaganda they sent around:

How not to measure temperature – Part 94 – Maniitsoq, Greenland all time high temperature rescinded

Watts Up With That?

UPDATE: 7/12/13 1045 PDT DMI concedes the record may not be valid, see here

I’ve been working on this one for a week, and I finally confirmed my hunch about where the weather station is located. The story begins with Jason Samenow at the Washington Post, who made a big deal out of a new temperature record in Maniitsoq, Greenland:

Maniitsoq_WaPo

Source: http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/capital-weather-gang/wp/2013/08/01/greenland-soars-to-highest-temperature-ever-recorded/

Any time I read about new record temperatures in the Arctic or Antarctic, I tend to think of this simple truth: In near polar settlements, temperature is measured close to that small human island of warmth , and since most such towns are completely dependent on aviation, the measurement is often done at the airport, since weather there is a go/no go factor of primary importance.

It turns out I was correct. What was surprising was just how correct my hunch turned out to be.

First, the Maniitsoq…

John Cook : Rats Cause Global Cooling

Real Science

ScreenHunter_82 Aug. 10 11.50

Earlier this week, Jeff Masters explained that global warming is causing rats to take over the earth, and The Washington Post announced that the vermin have already taken over Washington DC.

John Cook has followed up with this by theorizing that rats cause global cooling.

Little Ice Age Causes

The Black Death caused a decrease in the human populations of Europe, East Asia, and the Middle East during the 14th century and a consequent decline in agricultural activity.  A similar effect occurred in North America after European contact in the 16th century.  Ruddiman (2003) suggests reforestation took place as a result of this reduced human population and agricultural activity, allowing more carbon dioxide uptake from the atmosphere to the biosphere, thus having a cooling effect.

What ended the Little Ice Age?

h/t to Tom Nelson

Does this mean that rats are a negative feedback?
