Hansen and Popular Science : Spreading Global Warming Lies For Three Decades

225 MPH hurricanes? NOAA can’t find any 90 MPH hurricanes this year.

The real kicker though is Hansen’s claim of 1 in 20 odds of drought in the 1950s. Severe droughts occurred during most of the 1950s.

Hansen has absolutely no clue what he is talking about


Had he been in his office during May, 1953 he could have tasted some Texas dust.


Hansen may well be the most incompetent scientist on the planet, which is why progressives worship him.

Hide The Decline


By Paul Homewood


In an attempt to downplay the recent halt in global warming, the IPCC have claimed in their Summary for Policymakers that:


As one example, the rate of warming over the past 15 years (1998–2012; 0.05  °C per decade), which begins with a strong El Niño, is smaller than the rate calculated since 1951 (1951–2012; 0.12 °C per  decade.)


Simply translated, this means that warming has slowed down to just under half what it was before. This message has been quickly picked up by the media, which, of course, was the main intention.

The dreadful Geoffrey Lean comments in the Telegraph:


The IPCC did, however, address a much more substantial sceptical point, that the temperature increase at the Earth’s surface has slowed down since 1998 to about 40 per cent of its average rate since 1951 – something it accepts it didn’t predict. One…

Met Excuses Get Ever Thinner.


By Paul Homewood






Back in 2010, the Met Office had this to say about the halt in global warming.


Recent Met Office research investigated how often decades with a stable or even negative warming trend appeared in computer-modelled climate change simulations.

Jeff Knight, lead author on the research, says: “We found one in every eight decades has near-zero or negative global temperature trends in simulations. Given that we have seen fairly consistent warming since the 1970s, the odds of one in eight suggest the observed slowdown was due to happen.”


I wonder what the odds are for 17 years of no warming? I also wonder how much longer they will trot out the same excuse?



In the same report, they forecast:


Our decadal forecast predicts an end to this period of relative stability after 2010. We project at least half of…

Antarctica Sea Ice Extent 3rd Highest of All-Time on Sept 27 2013

Yet the IPCC still predict Antarctic melting and are 110% certain we are to blame for everything, ever. Amen.

sunshine hours

Antarctica Sea Ice Extent took an unexpected 50,000 sq km jump yesterday. It was the 3rd highest extent of all-time.

The top 5 Antarctic Sea Ice Extents of all-time all occurred since Sept 14th 2013.  10 out of the top 15 were in 2013. The remaining 5 occurred in 2012.

2013 has also set 55 daily records.

IPCC Statement About Last 3 Decades

sunshine hours

“Each of the last three decades has been successively warmer at the Earth’s surface than any preceding decade since 1850”

My Response (using HADCRUT4 data)

Decade Mean Anomaly C

1850 -0.32
1860 -0.33
1870 -0.26
1880 -0.30
1890 -0.36
1900 -0.41
1910 -0.39
1920 -0.25
1930 -0.12
1940 0.00
1950 -0.06
1960 -0.05
1970 -0.08

Each of the 4 decades after the 1870s were successively COLDER at the Earth’s surface than any preceding decade since 1850

Why did it take until the 1920s to get as warm as the 1870s?

Each of the 3 decades after the 1900s were successively warmer at the Earth’s surface than any preceding decade since 1850

But the next 3 decades after the 1940s were COLDER than the 1940s.


Explain your work.

Expensive Energy Kills Poor People

Watts Up With That?

Guest Post by Willis Eschenbach

Lesotho (pronounced “Leh – soo – too”), is a mountain fortress of a country, totally surrounded by South Africa. The people there, the Basotho (pronounced “Bah – soo – too), are tough as nails, and you’d have to be. It’s high desert country, cold in the winter, not much water. The Basotho are fiercely independent.
