So far this year is colder than normal. July is no different. Yes, we had a couple of warm days. But it has been mostly raining or cold. Today, the end of the month is neigh and we had yet another rainy day, three inches fell around here and the rivers are brown floods and the forest looks like a jungle. Meanwhile, we are told that this year is HOT! Yes, one of the hottest ever. Which is totally insane.
More and more, it looks like we are entering a 70’s cold weather cycle. The global warming isn’t merely stopped, it is now trending colder. I see all the clues around me. The weather has been spectacularly foul lately. Farmers can’t hay their fields for the hay will rot if it doesn’t dry in the sun before baling, for example.
The last time this happened was when The Cataclysmic 1991 Eruption of Mount Pinatubo caused world temperatures to fall rapidly and we had a great deal of snow and virtually no summer that year.
All the warmists were praying for a huge, hot el Nino. The needle in this gage here briefly toyed with going into the yellow zone only to pause a few weeks and then this week, has suddenly fallen rapidly towards another la Nina status.
The sun went totally quiet for a few days and now as flickered to life again, barely. I hold the view that aside from volcanic eruptions, sunspots determine how cold or hot it will be and this is the solar maximum which is a lower level than any one of these in the last 100 years which is scary as hell.
In between violent thunderstorms, I tried to collect firewood. This is going to be a real challenge because cutting, splitting and collecting firewood in storms is very difficult and quite dangerous.
Here is the latest attempt at scaring everyone if it is balmy and warm: Climate change and air pollution will lead to famine by 2050, study claims | Mail Online
Research has shown hotter climates and ozone pollution damage crops…
But until now, nobody has looked at how both changes impact plants…
Latest study suggests rates of malnourishment in the developing world could increase from the current 18 per cent to 27 per cent by 2050…
Global food production could fall by around 15 per cent in the same period.
Here is the historical reality. Remember, the Medieval Warm Period was much warmer than today: JSTOR: The Journal of Interdisciplinary History, Vol. 10, No. 4 (Spring, 1980), pp. 643-663
So, we have all the wars we could want, people are killing each other all over the place and we had snow in Egypt and the Fiji Islands which are very tropical nearly froze yesterday. And this is the Coldest Summer On Record At The North Pole and even the drones at NOAA have to admit that there are 28,504 Cold Records Set During Last Year.
But the Washington Post frets that Global warming threatens Antarctica’s emperor penguins despite the fact that the South Pole is colder than usual, too, and the surrounding ice is greater than any time in the recent past.
Then there is the ongoing scandal about NASA and NOAA tinkering with temperature readings to create artifical warming: UHI In Central Park | Real Science
NASA’s James Hansen adjusts Manhattan Central Park temperatures upwards, to account for UHI cooling caused by the grass. (No this is not a joke)
According to Hansen, we don’t take temperatures in places that are not artificial heat sinks! That is, in nature. He is driving up natural temperatures so they are ‘heat sink hot asphalt’ temperatures! Not to mention, he cools down the past so the highs back in the Dust Bowl Days are lower than today where there is no Dust Bowl.
California is having its regular, periodic droughts. This happens every century for the last millennia. Blaming it on humans is silly.
