Tornadoes and Tornado Deaths Plummeting In The US

Children just aren’t going to know what a Tornado is …

Real Science

US tornado deaths peaked 90 years ago in 1925, the year the Tri-State tornado destroyed many towns in Illinois, Kentucky and Missouri. Since then, tornado deaths have plummeted to record lows.

Government experts say that weather is getting more extreme in the US, because their job is to promote the White House agenda – regardless of any actual facts.

Earth Hour – Celebrate the Warmth

Watts Up With That?

Saturday 28th March is “Earth Hour” – a time to sit in the dark and appreciate the benefits of our cheap reliable hydrocarbon-energy.

Earth-Hour-2015
Guest essay by Viv Forbes

We should spend Earth Hour giving thanks for warmth.

Just thirteen thousand years ago, Earth was in the grip of a deathly ice age. Sea levels were indeed much lower but much of the land surface was covered by thick sheets of ice. Life struggled to survive and many species were extinguished by the sterile suffocating ice.

Without any help from humans, Earth escaped from the ice. And as the oceans warmed they expelled part of their dissolved carbon dioxide which nurtured an enormous increase in plant and animal life.

But the ice still lurks near the poles, and Earth has suffered several cold relapses. The…

Latest From The Greenland Meltdown

Real Science

Climate experts insist that Greenland is melting down, despite the fact that there is zero evidence to support that idea.

Greenland has gained nearly 500 billion tons of ice and snow over the past six months.

Scientists at the center of ice sheet are nearly buried in snow again this year, with temperatures still below minus 40 degrees.

And the coastal regions of Greenland are also having a difficult time keeping up with the massive amounts of snow.

Meanwhile, experts continue to lie about Greenland in peer-reviewed publications, and the press happily parrots their lies.

ScreenHunter_1389 Mar. 30 08.17

Let’s pretend for a minute that their BS was true.  What would be the consequence of a slowing Gulf Stream? It would mean less warm water transported to the Arctic, lower Arctic temperatures, less Greenland melt, and growth of Arctic ice.

They are shooting themselves in the foot with their own nonsense.

Freedom Isn’t Free

Real Science

NOAA is desperate to hide their data tampering, and is taking a new tack to defeat FOIA requests.

Kent Clizbe and I have been working for almost a year to get them to release their published monthly temperature data over the past couple of decades, which they overwrite in place in order to hide their ongoing manipulations.

The data should be kept in a simple file structure like the NOAA drought data, and it should require no more than 10 seconds for me to recover it online. Instead, they want a quarter of a million dollars, due on Monday.

We estimate that the cost to search for responsive records will be approximately $262,000.

If payment or other communication is not received by March 24, 2015, your FOIA request will be considered “closed.”

Fee Notification Letter – 2014-001602

There must be something very incriminating in that data.

Richard Tol’s Excellent Summary of the Flaws in Cook et al. (2013) – The Infamous 97% Consensus Paper

Watts Up With That?

Guest Post by Bob Tisdale

It’s been almost 2 years since Cook et al. (2013) Quantifying the consensus on anthropogenic global warming in the scientific literature was published. If you’re like me, you’ve lost track of the paper’s flaws, there were just so many, and how it is misrepresented, which is most of the time. Richard Tol has published an excellent summary of Cook et al. (2013) in his blog post Global warming consensus claim does not stand up (author’s cut). An edited version appeared in the Australian on March 24, 2015.

Richard’s post begins:

Now almost two years old, John Cook’s 97% consensus paper has been a runaway success. Downloaded over 300,000 times, voted the best 2013 paper in Environmental Research Letters, frequently cited by peers and politicians from around the world, with a dedicated column in the Guardian, the paper seems to be the definitive…

The NSIDC Big Lie Continues To Unravel

NSIDC follow-up must see :

Implausibly Deniable Propaganda At NSIDC

Real Science

Last week NSIDC rushed out a fully fraudulent press release, claiming a record low winter maximum – on a day when the US Navy was predicting a big surge in ice. That surge has occurred, and ice extent is now higher than 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2011. It is about to pass 2008 and 2014

It is becoming certain that fraudsters like Joe Romm are pushing an agenda.
