The journal Nature embraces ‘the pause’ and ocean cycles as the cause, Trenberth still betting his heat will show up

Watts Up With That?

From the “settled science” department. It seems even Dr. Kevin Trenberth is now admitting to the cyclic influences of the AMO and PDO on global climate. Neither “carbon” nor “carbon dioxide” is mentioned in this article that cites Trenberth as saying: “The 1997 to ’98 El Niño event was a trigger for the changes in the Pacific, and I think that’s very probably the beginning of the hiatus,”

This is significant, as it represents a coming to terms with “the pause” not only by Nature, but by Trenberth too.

Excerpts from the article by Jeff Tollefson:

The biggest mystery in climate science today may have begun, unbeknownst to anybody at the time, with a subtle weakening of the tropical trade winds blowing across the Pacific Ocean in late 1997. These winds normally push sun-baked water towards Indonesia. When they slackened, the warm water sloshed back towards South America, resulting in…

Longest Heatwave In History Was 90 Years Ago. Worst Heatwave Was 100 Years Ago

Real Science

Marble Bar heatwave, 1923-24

The world record for the longest sequence of days above 100°Fahrenheit (or 37.8° on the Celsius scale) is held by Marble Bar in the inland Pilbara district of Western Australia. The temperature, measured under standard exposure conditions, reached or exceeded the century mark every day from 31 October 1923 to 7 April 1924, a total of 160 days.

UN Climate Chief Says Communism Is Best To Fight Global Warming

Isn’t the only hope for the planet that the
industrialized civilizations collapse?
Isn’t it our responsiblity to bring that about
?”
– Maurice Strong,
founder of the UN Environment Programme (UNEP)

We’ve got to ride this global warming issue.
Even if the theory of global warming is wrong,
we will be doing the right thing in terms of
economic and environmental policy.

– Timothy Wirth,
President of the UN Foundation

I envisage the principles of the Earth Charter to
be a new form of the ten commandments.
They lay the foundation for a sustainable
global earth community.

– Mikhail Gorbachev,
co-author of The Earth Charter

UN climate chief : Communism is the best to fight global warming

Michael Bastasch – 15 Jan, 2014

United Nations climate chief Christiana Figueres said that democracy is a poor political system for fighting global warming. Communist China, she says, is the best model.

China may be the world’s top emitter of carbon dioxide and struggling with major pollution problems of their own, but the country is “doing it right” when it comes to fighting global warming says Figueres.

“They actually want to breathe air that they don’t have to look at,” she said. “They’re not doing this because they want to save the planet. They’re doing it because it’s in their national interest.”

Figueres added that the deep partisan divide in the U.S. Congress is “very detrimental” to passing any sort of legislation to fight global warming. The Chinese Communist Party, on the other hand, can push key policies and reforms all on its own. The country’s national legislature largely enforces the decisions made by the party’s Central Committee and other executive offices.

Communism was responsible for the deaths of about 94 million people in China, the Soviet Union, North Korea, Afghanistan and Eastern Europe in the 20th Century. China alone was responsible for 65 million of those deaths under communist rule.

Environmentalists often hail China as a model for fighting global warming, since they are a “leader” in renewable energy. The country set a goal of getting 15 percent of its power from renewable sources by 2020. In 2012, China got 9 percent of its power from renewables — the U.S. by contrast got 11 percent in 2012.

However, the country still gets 90 percent of its power from fossil fuels, mostly from coal. In fact, Chinese coal demand is expected to explode as the country continues to develop. China has approved 100 million metric tons of new coal production capacity in 2013 as part of the government’s plan to bring 860 million metric tons of coal production online by 2015.

China has publicly made big efforts to clean up its environment. The country’s booming industrial apparatus has caused so much pollution that the skies have been darkened over major cities and the air quality has heavily deteriorated.

__________

China is also able to implement policies because its political system avoids some of the legislative hurdles seen in countries including the U.S., Figueres said.

__________

The political divide in the U.S. Congress has slowed efforts to pass climate legislation and is “very detrimental” to the fight against global warming, she said.

Christiana Figueres is living in fantasy land.

China has adopted a pure capitalist model, combined with state-run market and labour control, to pursue the biggest industrial expansion the world has ever seen.

Its ‘renewable revolution’ is providing nearly the entire eco-brainwashed-western-world with its ‘clean energy‘ hardware to fight global-non-warming.

China can manufacture renewables wind and solar at a far more competitive rate than its western consumers. A no-win situation for Australia who export the steel and coal to China, who then manufacture without the burden of carbon taxes or emissions controls. Australia then imports the renewables back from China to satisfy its emissions target fantasies. The consumer then pays the Renewable Energy Target (RET) on top of the $23 per ton carbon (dioxide) making its electricity even more expensive again » more jobs and industry are lost to China.

China’s own ‘personal’ use of renewable energy, splashed across the ABC and other global warming sympathetic media, is grade-school eco-propaganda to appease critics of its noncompliance to any United Nations “save the planet” treaty. Smart China. Gullible West.

Renewables will never, ever be able to provide China with the energy required to pursue its current expansion goals, let alone go close to providing enough base-load power to satisfy the West’s deluded hunger for ‘feel-good’ renewables unreliables.

Everyday, China gets stronger as they pursue the capitalist model, while the Western world gets weaker as it wilfully embraces the United Nations’ misanthropic, malthusian, eco-socialist agenda.

China ENERGY USAGEChina’s fossil energy output exceeded new wind energy by 6 times and solar by 27 times.

Figueres’ communist intent would allow her to silence dissent from non-believers who remain sceptical of her eco-fascist, totalitarian ideology. A totalitarian, democracy-free-zone allowing The United Nations to ram its draconian climate policy and sustainability agenda through, unopposed.

Meanwhile the planet refuses to warm after 17 years and 3 months, despite 35% of all human CO² emissions, since 1751, emitted over the same period. Clearly, something other than evil human carbon dioxide carbon pollution drives climate and temperature change.

Shock news : Climate Experts Wrong About Global Warming Again

We’ve got to ride this global warming issue.
Even if the theory of global warming is wrong,
we will be doing the right thing in terms of
economic and environmental policy.

– Timothy Wirth,
President of the UN Foundation

No matter if the science of global warming is all phony…
climate change provides the greatest opportunity to
bring about justice and equality in the world
.”
– Christine Stewart,
former Canadian Minister of the Environment

The data doesn’t matter. We’re not basing our recommendations
on the data. We’re basing them on the climate models

17 years of no global warming Climate Change later, more dud-predictions from the climate cartel …

Re-pressed via Herald Sun

Still waiting for warming – and a sorry

16 January, 2014 – Andrew Bolt

Richard Kerr in Science, flagship publication of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, talked to warmist scientists convinced global warming would resume within five years:


The blogosphere has been having a field day with global warming’s apparent decade-long stagnation…

The latest response from the climate community comes in State of the Climate… [in] the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society. Climate researcher Jeff Knight and eight colleagues at the Met Office Hadley Centre in Exeter, U.K., first establish that—at least in one leading temperature record—greenhouse warming has been stopped in its tracks for the past 10 years… But natural climate variability in the model has its limits. Pauses as long as 15 years are rare in the simulations, and “we expect that [real-world] warming will resume in the next few years,” the Hadley Centre group writes.

And that resumption could come as a bit of a jolt, says Adam Scaife of the group, as the temperature catches up with the greenhouse gases added during the pause…

Solar physicist Judith Lean of the Naval Research Laboratory in Washington, D.C., and climate modeler David Rind of GISS reached the same conclusion in a peer-reviewed 15 August paper in Geophysical Research Letters…

Researchers may differ about exactly what’s behind recent natural climate variability, but they agree that no sort of natural variability can hold off greenhouse warming much longer. “Our prediction is that if past is prologue, the solar component will turn around and lead to rapid warming in the next 5 years,” says Rind.

Climate modeler David Smith of the Hadley Centre, who was not involved in the State of the Climate analysis, says his group’s climate model forecasts—made much the way weather forecasts are made—are still calling for warming to resume in the next few years as ocean influences reverse…

Time’s up.  Kerr wrote that five years ago. And sill no warming.

What would it take for warmist scientists to admit they were wrong?

Well, more than mere evidence, suggests Maurice Newman:

The IPCC was bound to be captured by the green movement. After all, it is a political body. It is not a panel of scientists but a panel of governments driven by the UN. Its sole purpose is to assess the risks of human-induced climate change. It has spawned industries. One is scientists determined to find an anthropogenic cause. Another is climate remediation. And, naturally, an industry to redistribute taxes to sustain it all. With hundreds of billions of dollars at stake, this cartel will deny all contrary evidence. Its very survival depends on it. But the tide is turning and Mother Nature has signalled her intention not to co-operate
