earth wind map: My latest favorite website now that the US earthquake map has been eliminated by our government sequestration leaving everyone clueless about the impending earthquakes, is this map of the earth’s winds. We are having a brief heat wave on the East Coast after a month of Arctic conditions with several feet of snow in some places. The severe cold elicited zero response from the ‘climate change’ people who ignored this. Now that another Arctic freeze is barreling down on us, we are giving a very brief three day respite from this Ice Age cold. And on cue, the army of global warmists who pretend they care about ‘climate change’ are howling like banshees that we are going to roast to death even as people die from the cold front.
To seen how bad it will be in 48 hours, look at my local forecast! The low Tuesday will be near zero degrees. This is mighty cold. And not the first night like this, we have had many this fall. Winter only started yesterday, after all. But the severe cold jumped the gun on Thanksgiving. I am happy it warmed up briefly, I desperately needed to drag my old beat up jeep to a friend’s garage with a lift to rebuild the 4WD and other things. Last week I had to shovel a foot of snow for half a mile by myself and no global warming enthusiast showed up to assist. And it was very bitter cold, too. It hurt to breathe.
Breaking News and Opinion on The Huffington Post: The global warming believers have this hideous double standard. Whenever it is severely cold even for months, they sneer that this is ‘weather, not climate’. One day of warm due to a severe cold front roaring in and they jump up and down announcing proudly that it is super warm and if we don’t tax energy used to heat homes, why, we will all roast to death! They will fall silent in 48 hours and wait impatiently for the next possible warm day in this cold winter.
The mental confusion of the warmists is alarming. It is clearly visible in this article run by a liberal publisher who thinks we are roasting to death as I struggle to deal with ice, deep snow and freezing cold: A Lost Atlantis in South Jersey » CounterPunch: Tells the Facts, Names the Names:
Much of the late twentieth century quiescence might be attributable to the Atlantic multidecadal oscillation—an approximately 70-year cycle that amplifies or mitigates regional sea surface temperature independent of anthropomorphic climate change–and alternately obscures and exaggerates the temperature increases due to global warming.
The number of tropical storms and severity of hurricanes in the Atlantic is greater during warm phases of the AMO. A 30-year cold phase ended around 1995, and we are now well into the warm phase—with a corresponding increase in the number of storms and intense hurricanes such as Katrina and Sandy. The current peak may be similar to the mid-twentieth-century peak from 1930 to 1960 (surrounded by cold intervals of 1900-1930 and 1960-1990).
A consensus seems to indicate climate change may give rise to fewer but much stronger Atlantic hurricanes–
Note how confused these paragraphs are! At one point, the writer claims there are more and nastier hurricanes during warming cycles and then…that there would be fewer but still nasty. Not a peep about this latest season with virtually none with the only lonely ones being a mere category 1 hurricanes. As to the ‘well into the warm phase’ this is pure insanity. It is NOT warm. It may be slightly warmer than during the Maunder Minimum in Antarctica but this year seemed more like the Maunder Minimum, not some tropical heatwave.
The writer, Kathy Deacon, complains about all the Victorian buildings wrecked by the ocean’s wrath. Well, when were these built? Why, at the very end of the Maunder Minimum! The oceans were lower during that period and the foolish Victorians built right on the sand dunes as people still do today despite geological warnings to stop doing this foolish thing! The houses vanished because the Little Ice Age ended. The global warmists want this back. Why?
I would suggest the massive population move during the warm cycle which is ending, is responsible for this attitude problem. Many, many, many moved to the edge of the ocean and in easily flooded places like Florida which was mostly swampland before humans moved in. Yes, Florida floods during warmer cycles. And for millions of years, no sapiens lived there and when Native Americans came over during the last Ice Age, a few moved there but not many.
What the warmists want is to freeze me up here to save Florida. They want another mini-Ice Age and may trigger a Real Ice Age. Kathy, for example, touts the ‘hockey stick warming’ model even as she admits there were ‘cold intervals’ which coincidentally lasted half a century in total! That is, 50% of the time, it was colder, not warmer!
The huge coronal hole that dominated the northern hemisphere of the sun for so many cold days is diminishing in size. It isn’t just the weak character of the sun spots that is responsible for our climate, it is also these coronal holes at work. We still barely understand our local star which is life and death to all living things. Coincidentally, the solar wind from this hole will hit exactly the same time the entire East Coast is going into a deep freeze again. There are many coincidences in weather events. Not all are equal. But we can’t write out things due to ignorance. We still don’t entirely understand how the sun affects weather and how quickly but my feeling is, the coronal hole events are greater significance than people suspect so far!
This weak solar sun spot cycle coinciding with a cooling off of the areas of the Northern Hemisphere that were subjected to deep glaciers in the past is quite troubling. Siberia was warmer than Canada back then. Big time. Canada was 90% under glaciers and Siberia had virtually no glaciers. This salient point is ignored by ‘scientists’ who want to think we will warm up until winter vanishes in the Ice Age Glacial Belt. This isn’t happening, the queer effects we are seeing are probably due to impending global cooling, not warming. If it were warming, I would be warmer than Siberia, not the other way around.
The sun sputters and spits energy. These come in bursts, there is no ‘steady state’ for at least the last 2.5 million years. Pretending there is some ideal state we can achieve is madness. All we can do is understand how this is happening so we can protect ourselves. Though little can protect us from another Ice Age which would kill off most humans, fast.
