Alt-science climate activists

How dare Mr Delingpole point out that there’s been a recent dip in temperatures – is there no end to such wickedness? Shock horror!

Shub Niggurath Climate

The US House Science committee tweeted a link to a James Delingpole article on the drop in atmospheric temperatures of the Na Nina that is underway.

Look at the climate alarmist and intelligentsia response:

    The usual list of propagandists. No professional agrees with this fraud because R D Cess’ 1976 paper, its basis, has the scientific howler defining Earth’s radiant emissivity as OLR (-18 deg C)/surface radiant exitance (+15 deg C). You must use the same temperature.

    This created 40% more SW thermalisation than reality and the fake 33 K GHE. Cess’ derivative deductions were then ‘confirmed’ by more fraud – Wang et al (1976), a 1-D model which offset the 40% extra energy by ‘negative convection’, which cannot exist. 24 years later, Hansen admitted this to an AIP interviewer but claimed 3-D models are fine. Not true; these have the same fraud, just better hidden (the Kirchhoff’s Law argument based on incorrect cloud optical physics, which also creates artificial ‘positive feedback’.)

    These two 1976 papers led to the Charney report (1979), wanted by the Globalists to replace gold as the basis of currency with CO2, now the ‘carbon pollution’ loved by the lefty totalitarians, the shock troops of the real totalitarians.

    Happily, real scientists are now waking up to how Science has been replaced by state-funded propaganda. We now face a desperate struggle to censor the internet and jail dissenters in a new, World-wide programme. UK politicians who espouse fake climate science are tools of the carbon traders. Whereas Galileo was threatened with the rack and terrible crimes against his daughter, modern scientific dissent is controlled by the need to pay the mortgage, unless you are retired.

    What the professional climate alarmists dislike, even more than the opinions of people like James Delingpole, is the fact that his report has been quoted by a top US political body. This is the thin end of the wedge as they see it.

    NB JD’s report is itself mostly based on the earlier one by David Rose in The Mail on Sunday.

  3. Would you care to point out where the drop in temperature is in Spencer’s plot:

    UAH Global Temperature Update for November 2016: +0.45 deg. C

    Or is Roy spencer now another BEST never to be referenced again.

    isn’t the rss data set showing a bigger increase than UAH.

    It is very difficult keeping up with who now has a valid temperature record according to climate “sceptics”

    RS chart

    Once the El Niño effect wears off, what’s going to be left?

    ‘La Niña conditions were observed during October, with negative sea surface temperature (SST) anomalies in early November stretching across most of the eastern and central equatorial Pacific Ocean [Fig. 1]. With the exception of the Niño1+2 region, the Niño region indices remained negative over the last month, with the latest weekly value of the Niño-3.4 index at -0.8°C [Fig. 2]. The upper-ocean heat content also remained below average during October [Fig. 3], reflecting below-average temperatures at depth [Fig. 4].’

    NOAA-ESRL: Starting in May 2016, Niño region 3.4 SST anomalies dropped below +0.5C for the first time since late 2014. They reached -0.5C in July, and have now reached -0.7C in October. For comparison, Niño 3 SST has been a bit more reluctant to reach negative anomalies of this size, with October 2016 coming in at -0.4C.

    +0.5C to -0.7C = a drop of 1.2C between May and October in region 3.4

    Once again TFP misses the point because his brain cell is focused elsewhere

    “Would you care to point out where the drop in temperature is in Spencer’s plot:”

    Well, see that Feb. 2016 position? See the Nov. 2016 position? Do you notice a drop from Feb. 2016 to Nov. 2016?

    Take a look at the El Nino year of 1998. Do you see the down side of the 1998 trend? Notice that during that downtrend, there were a couple of times when the temperature actually blipped up a little, like it is doing right now during the 2016 downturn. See the similarities? Nothing new here.

    My expectation is the future temperature profile will begin resembling the profile after the 1998 El Nino in coming years.

  7. I would argue that almost all of the recent temperature spike was caused by the recent El Niño as it was both strong and long lasting. Remember, the ENSO index was also high during the NH winter of 2014/16 with an Modoki El Niño. Also, both the tropical part of the Indian Ocean and Atlantic were warmer than normal and that was because the same type of ENSO forcing exist in those oceans, although the response time is slower, as the ENSO driving mechanism is mechanical in nature.
