  1. Not many people left…I don’t show up at all in Tennessee. Gawrsh!

  2. Andy OZ says:

    El Nino will save you northerners…..
    aw shucks. That’s already been torpedoed.
    It’s warming up down here in Aussie ….. finally.

  3. MikeTheDenier says:

    Looks good until Hansen and his goons get hold of the data.

  4. Jean Croton says:

    Past, buddy, over here . . . Wanna buy some long underwear?

    Only been worn once before, by an old lady who only wore ’em on Sunday when she went to church to bow & scrape at Gaia’s alter.

  5. gator69 says:

    Maybe picking the Polar Bear as the AGW mascot was more appropriate than we first imagined.

  6. physicist says:

    Not correct. This is what 4 days in the US looks like in 2012, all 2.9 million square miles of CONUS only. AGW is what it looks like averaged over the entire surface of the earth, all 4 X pi X R-squared of it, all 198 million square miles of it, over decades of time.

    • That is amazing. Human emissions of greenhouse gases are the only factor which affects the climate.

      • kirkmyers says:

        Plus, it’s no longer warming (see HadCRUT3 and RSS). In fact, the planet has seen a slight cooling trend since 2002, despite repeated upward “adjustments” of land-based temperature data by the creative geniuses at NOAA and NASA. There is absolutely no connection between rising CO2 levels and global temperatures. None.

        The lack of global warming is a big problem for alarmist scientists. If they can’t keep the scare alive, they could be out of a job or scrambling to fill a budget void as research dollars dry up. They must resurrect their discredited theory. Hence, the change from “global warming” to “climate change.” Now, they can blame every weather anomaly on climate change.” And, of course, they will be correct; the planet’s climate has been changing for 4 billion-plus years.

    • Andy DC says:

      But when there is localized heat, like Moscow in 2010 or the Midwest US last March, the alarmists won’t let you hear the end of it.

      • kirkmyers says:

        It’s clear the warmists will go to any length, including manipulating or falsifying data, to defend their collapsing AGW theory. There are awards, perks, publicity and billions of research dollars at stake.

        The “climate change” scare has never been about saving the planet from runaway global warming. It always has been about money, power and people control. The Green movement has supplanted Marxism-socialism-progressivism as the new ideology of the collectivist control freaks, who rarely try to disguise their hatred of capitalism and the market economy.

      • physicist says:

        I guess you must just have missed that in late Sep 65.45% of CONUS was in drought condition. 98% of Nebraska was in extreme to exceptional drought. Crop production dropped $12 billion in the 3rd quarter. 300 million trees dead in TX.

        In the second quarter economic growth was reduced by 0.2% by the drought.

        I seem to recall some massive wildfires also.

        Nothing alarming there.

      • gator69 says:

        “I seem to recall some massive wildfires also.”

        1910: 3,000,000 acres, Great Fire of 1910, Idaho-Montana-Washington… Killed 86 people

        1871: 1,200,000 acres, Peshtigo Fire, Wisconsin… Killed over 1,700 people and has distinction of the conflagration that caused the most deaths by fire in United States history. It was overshadowed by the Great Chicago Fire that occurred on the same day.

        Me too. 😉

      • physicist

        Your viewpoint is completely void of history. The 1930 were far worse on crop production. It is profound how wrong you are.

    • NikFromNYC says:

      At a depth of only a dozen feet of solid ground, the temperature regulates at 55° F, somehow, delighting mushroom growers worldwide. Extra hot air, being so terribly ethereal and only as thick as morning dew on a cold basketball, has little effect on the bulk of the land itself. Moving on, the heat capacity of the oceans, being made not of rock but of a mysterious material with a monstrous heat capacity that flows too, and the massive chunk of the same frozen material at the South Pole? Those big, shivering, bushmeat-worthy gorillas in the room are not amused by your philosophy, for it will impoverish the hairless apes in the valley.

    • In that case AGW looks like nothing happening at all for up to 15 years for some data sets… Physicist must be new at this as warmest generally don’t want to talk about global averaged temperature anymore.

    • physicist says:

      From Bloomberg:

      “Drought damage to corn and soybean fields in the U.S., the world’s top grower and exporter, is eroding supplies of the nation’s two largest crops to below year-earlier consumption levels for the first time since 1974.”

      So were all those farmers crying crocodile tears earlier in the summer? Should we just ignore them?

  7. gator69 says:

    “This is what global warming looks like at the regional or personal level,” said Jonathan Overpeck, professor of geosciences and atmospheric sciences at the University of Arizona. “The extra heat increases the odds of worse heat waves, droughts, storms and wildfire. This is certainly what I and many other climate scientists have been warning about.”

    “Kevin Trenberth, head of climate analysis at the National Center for Atmospheric Research in fire-charred Colorado, said these are the very record-breaking conditions he has said would happen, but many people wouldn’t listen. So it’s I told-you-so time, he said.”

    Hurry “physicist”, there is are many inaccuracies begging for your attention!

    • Ouch. I think this is the point where Physicist gives up the pretence of ‘educating’ the ‘unbelievers’, spits the dummy and starts calling everyone here Denier’s of Gaia.

  8. kbray in california says:

    NASA admits it’s not CO2 after all causing climate change extreme weather… it’s La Nina:

    “The La Niña cycle had a substantial impact on the extreme winter weather of 2010-11, as well as on last spring’s terrible tornado season. La Niña conditions may have helped bring about some of the massive snows that blanketed much of the northern United States last winter, and the conditions’ waning may have ramped up the tornado season.”

    Of course… NASA statements and predictions could also be a pile of crap…

    • Long periods of dominant La Nina only cause the powerful global warming signal to be temporarily suppressed. Long periods of dominant El Nino is of no consequence because it’s a natural cycle and has nothing much to do with AGW. 😉

  9. kbray in california says:

    Jonathan Overpeck,
    University of Arizona says: extra heat = extreme weather

    NASA says: La Nina cooling = extreme weather

    Kevin Trenberth,
    National Center for Atmospheric Research Says: see? I told you so… extreme weather


    Hot or cold ? How about natural variability.

  10. dmmcmah says:

    Wild Bill McKibben’s going to have to update his doomsday Rolling Stone article with this data! The 2 degree threshold is within reach!!!

  11. dmmcmah says:

    Maybe these temps are a lingering legacy of second world war bombers. As soon as those vapor trails finally vaporize for good, watch out! the temps going to spike 2 degrees.

  12. NikFromNYC says:

    Instapundit is still injecting the Best of Steve into the mainstream conservative news cycle:

    “THE PROBLEM IS, the record lows are in Flyover Country, so they don’t count.

    Posted at 8:06 pm by Glenn Reynolds”

  13. Those scattered red dots are probably from UHI.

  14. anthonyvioli says:

    Reblogged this on The Real World and commented:
    Last week i mentioned a cold snap would hit the USA….well records have fallen

  15. physicist says:

    This is what global warming looks like from record highs vs. record low temps over decades. One more time, a single day or week is not what matters, it is the long term trends over decades.

    • gator69 says:

      The physicist’s world began in 1950! And I didn’t see any mention of UHI, or how many times their data set has been adjusted to meet their confirmation bias.

      Great work brainiac!

    • LLAP says:

      1) Of course this doesn’t show the 1930’s and 40’s … I would love to see what the “trend” is with those two decades included.

      2) The 60’s and 70’s corresponded to a negative PDO. The PDO turrned positive in the late 1970’s and then turned negative in 2008. Also, UHI has been increasing in all of the deacdes listed in your link. Of course the long term trend would have nothing to do with the PDO and UHI … right?

      • physicist says:

        I think it best that you should check out the BEST study, led by a former denier (who is also a physicist) and funded in part by the Koch Brothers:

        From the BEST Study FAQs. And I assume you do know what “indistinguishable from zero” means from a mathematical point of view when you read that.

        Is the urban heat island (UHI) effect real?

        The Urban Heat Island effect is real. Berkeley’s analysis focused on the question of whether this effect biases the global land average. The results indicate that the urban heat island effect on our global estimate of land temperatures is indistinguishable from zero.

      • Me says:

        That’s a good conspiracy theory you have going there phyescyst! 😆

      • gator69 says:

        “The results indicate that the urban heat island effect on our global estimate of land temperatures is indistinguishable from zero.”

        Yes, and 2+2=5.

        What a moron. The WORST study flies in the face of reality, and 99% of UHI studies. The Berkeley Clown was never a skeptic, and lets talk funding! The IPCC is supported by government funding, governments that want to tax and control.

        “NOAA’s total budget request is $5.6 billion, which would be an increase of 17.0 percent. Of this, $437 million would be for climate research funding, which is an increase of $77 million.”

        That is just the budget of one agency, of one government.

        And the Heartland Institute was outspent 47 to 1 by Greensleeze.

        How does one who is so very mathematically challenged, become a “physicist”?

      • physicist says:

        The long term trend line for temperature going up has nothing to do with the PDO. PDO does not create heat/energy. Therefore it cannot have any long term impact on overall temperature rise of the whole earth, all 4-pi-rsquared. PDO movers energy around and changes temperatures locally.

        The PDO index and be found here:

        The temperature data is here:

        You can plot it up. PDO is flat lined on average, Temp is rising on average.

        I do begin to wonder about climate 101 for tenth graders. I do hope it’s not like teaching intelligent design in biology class on the science of evolution.

        • Mr. fake physicist., the atmosphere contains a tiny, tiny, tiny fraction of the earth’s heat content. Your fake temperature trend and fake logic and fake Koch brother’s argument is meaningless.

      • LLAP says:

        @Physicist: “I do begin to wonder about climate 101 for tenth graders. I do hope it’s not like teaching intelligent design in biology class on the science of evolution.

        Nice try … I have taught evolution.

      • LLAP says:

        @Physicist: “Temp is rising on average.”

        Only if you use the adjusted GISS temperatures, which I just noticed you did. Nice try, part 2.

        P.S. The PDO is significant in the context of the link you showed because in the 50’s and 60’s (when the ratio of record highs to lows favoured the lows), the PDO was negative. For the 70’s and beyond (ratio in favour of record highs), the PDO was positive. Add in UHI (which has been confirmed in every case except the BEST paper), and the “trend” is toward more record highs. Maybe you should start thinking for yourself.

    • Andy OZ says:

      Strange how the trend in record highs v record lows correlate closely with the adjustments to the raw temperature data over the same period as shown by Steven G.
      Sorry mate, but this hasn’t been a science debate for years since the politicians got hold of it. Including many who masquerade as climate scientists.

      And if it’s “global”, the southern hemisphere must have been excluded from the globe. Maybe change your description to “half global warming” might be slightly more accurate if you believe in it.
      We are freezing our butts off down here in Australia doncha know. Snow in Adelaide in October for first time in 100 years. And don’t be saying it’s a weather phenomenon when the Antarctic ice sheet is at a record extent. I can legitimately say we have “Global Cooling” going on down here.

      This is what it looks like.

    • More time to make adjustments!

    • tckev says:

      Now that is unprecedented forcing of the CO2 mythology.

  16. So you are admitting that the leading scientists of your movement are actually idiots? Because this is exactly what Trenberth et al., are now asserting.

  17. Stephen Richards says:

    I think it best that you should check out the BEST study, led by a former denier (who is also a physicist) and funded in part by the Koch Brothers:

    Physicist, which you are not, you should know by now that the liar Muller was never a sceptic only of your high priest’s work. They used hansen et al data to come to a guess about AGW which a wish based on the same religious work.

  18. LLAP says:

    Apparently, global warming looks a lot like an award winning English winemaker scrapping its entire harvest of grapes:
