Antarctic Sea Ice Approaching The Largest Anomaly Ever Recorded | Real Science: I took the above graph from this website and altered it a bit. I turned the red ice data into blue when it is ‘growing’ so it is clearer what is happening. Oddly enough, the hockey stick graph lives on…with colder climate projection!
First, a visit at the increasingly doddering old lady of a news organization: Our Lonely Home in Nature – NYTimes.com editorial:
Aren’t we a part of nature, born in nature, sustained by the food brought forth by nature, warmed by the natural sun? Don’t we have a deep spiritual connection with the wind and the water and the land that Emerson and Wordsworth so lovingly described, that Turner and Constable painted in scenes of serenity and grandeur? How could Mother Nature do this to us, her children?
Turner painted pictures showing terrible times. Due to large volcanic eruptions especially in Indonesia but also Siberia, the skies were much darker and sunsets were a gory bloody red hue. He painted pictures of things dying and even ships going to destruction as did a number of painters of his generation.
There is NOTHING ‘serene’ in any Turner painting!
Yet despite our strongly felt kinship and oneness with nature, all the evidence suggests that nature doesn’t care one whit about us. Tornadoes, hurricanes, floods, earthquakes and volcanic eruptions happen without the slightest consideration for human inhabitants…
This is simply childish. No Romantic poet or painter ever thought ‘Nature’ cared a whit about humans! They celebrated Nature’s indifference and even hostility towards mere humans. Fatalism was and still is a huge part of romantic beliefs which we see in grand display today with the global warming fears.
Speaking of the Devil That Must Appear In All News Stories:
The recent report by the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change documents the damage now being done by human-created greenhouse gases and global warming. In reacting to the report, we should not be concerned about protecting our planet. Nature can survive far more than what we can do to it and is totally oblivious to whether homo sapiens lives or dies in the next hundred years. Our concern should be about protecting ourselves — because we have only ourselves to protect us.
So, this was all about global warming. I am happy the author didn’t hide behind the rubik cube ‘climate change’ presto-chango scam. He really is scared of roasting to death! In the same issue of the NYT is this truthful article: Bitter Winter Limits the Offerings of Spring – NYTimes.com
The winter was particularly long and especially awful. Chicago had nearly 68 inches of snow, the third-highest total on record. The polar vortex killed berry and peach crops in Illinois and Ohio. At least 19 grape-growing counties in New York qualify for federal disaster relief.
It’s supposed to feel like spring. But the soil has been too cold to plant sweet corn in the Midwest. New Jersey asparagus is getting frostbitten. Michigan’s sweet cherries are in trouble. Even the South is suffering. Strawberry farmers in North Carolina, which produces the nation’s fourth-largest crop, fought back an Easter freeze.
Wow! It was cold and worse, continues cold! This is one cold, cold May, for sure. Even when the sun shines, it barely gets to 60 degrees and still feels chilled like the sun is not warm as usual. Most days here on my mountain, it is cold. And the trees are barely budding and the wild cherry trees which are the first to bloom have nearly no blossoms.
NOAA has been totally destroyed by the global warmists. They lie about everything all the time now and the more wrong they are, the more they lie. Here is the latest drought map: California Drought Final Snow Survey – Business Insider
Looks terrible? No? So I went to other agencies and found that the geologists are not fanatics and thus, have real information: Washington Water Supply Information | Water Resources Program | Washington State Department of Ecology
Where is the terrible drought? Spotty to none in 80% of the nation. None in Washington state at all. This was my thought, too, for I have tracked many storms passing over Washington state this spring. Here is another USGS map showing water flow rates in Washington.
Most are well above normal and all are normal or better. So where is this ‘drought’ that NOAA is whining about? It doesn’t exist nor will it happen during the summer due to the deep snow on the mountains there: Washington Snow Depth and Snow Accumulation in MAY!!!
Over 150 inches in a lot of places, all are at least 75 inches. This is 12 feet of snow! Oregon has some snow still, too. But no where near as much as Washington. Below shows today’s water vapor map:
Looks like more storms rolling across the northern Pacific Ocean. Here is the wind maps showing the intensity of these storms:
