After an extremely long, tedious, cold winter and very late ice melt, after Bad to worse: US economy shrank more than expected in Q1 ‘due to unusually cold winter’, what do we have now, in this summer which is colder than normal? Why, endless attacks on anyone pointing out that global warming is dead! Instead, ever more hysterical predictions of how we are going to roast to death proliferate. IPCC : That Medieval Warm Period We Used To Believe In Wrecks Our Story, Lets Get Rid Of It | Real Science: a web site run by a right winger that does real research has caused a flurry due to what I think are very credible charges that NOAA and foreign climatologists have been ‘cooking the books’ by eliminating mainly rural temperature stations and readjusting the past to make it colder while adjusting the present to make it hotter. This is a huge conspiracy to convince people, despite obvious weather to the contrary, that we are getting hotter when the opposite is happening.

Blizzards In Rocky Mountains: History Of El Ninos Shows Increasing Cooling Since Medieval Warm Period
Snow, severe storms barge into West, central USA as winter continues to hold an iron grip on huge parts of the North America continent. Here, where I live, it finally warmed up some and all the trees that normally leaf out one after the other are doing it very swiftly, simultaneously due to the very delayed spring. And the cold fronts push warm air and concentrate this right next to the front so we see high winds and the Texas panhandle wildfire 75% contained due to dry grass left over from last fall. It is snowing in the Rockies, big time.
The above picture is from the Wikipedia Pacific Decadal Oscillation Event. This is what a West Coast wet weather cycle looks like: cold water off of Japan and warm across the West Coast. Note how this is during an el Nino cycle. But we are in the exact opposite, a very long, persistent la Nina cycle which shows no sign of letting up. The global warming model does not have room for a persistent cold cycle like this one. Instead, they focus on the fact that the water running off of Japan’s east coast is unusually warm. Which is true and quite curious considering that this coincides with the Great Tohoku Earthquake that destroyed so much of eastern Japan in 2011 which happens to be the time when the oscillation began. The long drought in California is being blamed on the ocean being hot when it actually is caused by a COOLING Pacific, not a hot one. Continue reading
