Another tempest in a teapot. Nate Silver apologizes to critics on behalf of his science writer – Salon.com: the warmists went on the usual howling warpath and forced poor Nate to back track desperately. Now he will host a ‘we are roasting to death unless you live in much of the North American continent’ global cooling denialist who will explain away one of the coldest winters in 100 years. By mainly ignoring it.
Pielke called the claims “ridiculous,” but Silver responded with an apology on his behalf. “Roger is a freelance contributor and his private communications do not represent FiveThirtyEight,” he told HuffPost. “We had candid conversations with Michael Mann and Kevin Trenberth. We made clear that Roger’s conversations with them did not reflect FiveThirtyEight’s editorial values.”
In a lengthy post to FiveThirtyEight’s website Friday morning, Silver also elaborated on his response to the criticism being leveled at the piece, acknowledging that some of the claims Pielke made in “offhand remarks” are subject to intense scientific debate. He clarified that Pielke will not only be writing about climate; nor will he be the only person on the site writing about climate change. The promised rebuttal, he added, is forthcoming.
The liberal community which has become utterly unhinged on the topic of ‘how hot is it really?’ will now persecute poor Nate Silver over every issue so he will never be able to crunch any numbers that tell liberals things they don’t want to know. I am a liberal, myself, but also logical and realistic. I resent liberals going off a cliff like this. Unable to admit that they and the ICPP don’t understand the climate is a hard thing to admit.
They will be forced eventually, as it becomes more certain we are entering a cold cycle thanks mainly to the sun, to apologize for the global warming hysteria. And this will destroy the credibility of the left just like the misguided bussing to integrate schools killed the Democrats for several generations. Just when the Democrats were crawling out of that wreckage, the Trayvon silliness and the roasting to death while blizzards howl craziness reasserted the emotional collapse of liberalism in the nuclear age.
Here is a prime example. The Washington Post: Breaking News, World, US, DC News & Analysis is a nuclear bomb throwing warmongering ethnic cleansing entity. It also embraces the global warming story!
The WP is torn in two by the global warming gambit. First, it gives an excuse to tax the poor which is good for these neocons. Secondly, this protects their vacation properties all of which are in warm watery places. But it also screws up the stealing of world fossil fuel resources. Boo! So we have this silly thing going on: all the global warming icons, pictures and stories feature both polar bears and the sun. Yes, the sun.
While claiming the sun has little to do with global warming, all the iconic illustrations of us roasting to death features the sun. The hysteria about floods and droughts are used, too. And never is there any mention of cold. Bitter as it got this winter, the cold barely was mentioned in any documents or articles pushing the global warming baby buggy off the political cliff. Nuclear war threatens all humanity and it is very, very hot, as hot as the sun! And the US is threatening Russia and plans to threaten China using nuclear bombs and if they don’t obey our rulers, these bombs will be dropped on this planet.
Along comes a totally deranged report: IPCC report: climate change felt ‘on all continents and across the oceans’ | Environment | theguardian.com
“In recent decades, changes in climate have caused impacts on natural and human systems on all continents and across the oceans,” the final report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change will say.
Some parts of the world could soon be at a tipping point. For others, that tipping point has already arrived. “Both warm water coral reef and Arctic ecosystems are already experiencing irreversible regime shifts,” the approved version of the report will say…But the report also acknowledges that a certain amount of warming is already locked in, and that in some instances there is no way to escape the effects of climate change.
Where is this ‘warm locked in’? NO mention of cold weather gripping the same parts of the planet that had ice during the previous ice ages! We still have snow covering the north and east faces of all the mountains here where I live and even after several days of warmer than freezing weather, I still have big piles of ice everywhere on the south faces of the mountain and April is right around the corner! The fraud, calling all this ‘climate change’ is criminal. An entire winter locking a huge part of the northern hemisphere (it is summer in the south hemisphere, of course) isn’t ‘weather’ it is definitely and defiantly ‘climate’. The climate IS changing…getting colder.
Here is an example from the Guardian in England of honest citizens scared into slitting their own throats, note how they all think they should cease having children and huddle in cold, dark huts to save the planet:
Will these poor saps attack the rich and stop them from causing more CO2? The rich own the energy systems. They own the transportation systems. They eat energy like fiends. They haven’t lifted a finger to cut back, themselves. They are psychopaths because the pay for and promote the global warming scam plus they tell the poor saps above, to eliminate themselves. That’s right. Cease to exist, they are responsible for wrecking the Rich Paradise. This Garden of Eden will be a happy place for them once they rid themselves of all these pesky northern European useful idiots.
Here is one of many ways the rulers of Japan are eliminating their excess population now that they don’t need them, having moved production overseas: Gov’t team withholds high radiation data on three Fukushima sites – 毎日新聞
BBC News – Is Japan playing hunger games with climate change? which is all about when cherry blossoms happen. Japan, of course, is a small set of islands in the ocean which is different from continental temperatures. During the Ice Ages, for example, there was little glaciation there. Mainly in Hokkaido. First glaciers in Japan recognized two years ago. Glaciers Growing in Tibet:
A new paper published in the Journal of Geophysical Research, Solid Earth, finds that inner Tibet Plateau glaciers have been gaining “remarkable” quantities of ice over the past decade.
According to the authors, Shuang Yi and Wenke Sun, the “remarkable positive signal (+30 Gt/yr)” … “is challenging to explain.” This growth “almost completely offsets loss of 35Gt/yr elsewhere in the region.”
The authors further reveal that a 5-year cycle found in other Asian high mountain glacier mass “can be explained by the influence of Arctic Oscillation and El Niño-Southern Oscillation.”
Time to move the polar bears to Tibet!
