It’s #ShowYourStripes day folks; climate realist style.

Exeter university warmist Ed Hawkins came up with an idea for a beach towel a couple of years back. It’s the (alleged) temperature history of Earth’s annual average surface temperatures since the 1850s. It acts as global warming propaganda for the uninformed and is pushed and touted by the usual alarmist outfits.

Ed Hawkins ‘Climate Stripes’

The sceptic cartoonist Josh came up with a great antidote though, which reaches a bit further back in time to include the Medieval Warm Period and the Little Ice Age. It offers a bit of perspective, and makes Ed Hawkins look like the fool he is.

  1. JB says:

    Make sure that beach towel is marked which way is “up!”

  2. cognog2 says:

    Well done Josh. We can’t have these rampant Porkies cluttering up our beaches.

  3. Stephen Richards says:

    I saw this presentation this week on the UKMO youtube weather forecast. The minute it came on I went off.

  4. oldbrew says:

    The BBC breakfast show weather forecaster produced a version of it. Another one who must think the sun is as constant as a plug-in heater.

    Climate hypesters playing with colors, keeping carefully in the lines.
    The delta between the coldest blue and hottest reddish-brown is actually proof the hypesters are full of crap.

  6. stpaulchuck says:

    once again the magic year 1850. The LoFo’s will stand slack jawed and be shocked. We’ve all seen this cherry picking game over and over in the blog posts elsewhere. Just for the record – 1850 was roughly the end of the Little Ice Age. Ice age = cold. Not the Ice Age = warmer.

    In point of fact we still have not returned to temps prior to the LIA and are quite a bit colder that the Roman Warm Period, and the Middle Ages Warm Period (among others). CO2 is plant food!

    I hit an absolute tolerance limit with MSM, which has degenerated into a blog on 2 themes with NO news. Who can recommend good right-wing (NOT “center-right” bullshit) TEXT-ONLY news?

    Here’s an example of a CONCISE TEXT-ONLY story covering news I don’t want to miss:

    MSM: NO I don’t want the lecture. NO I don’t accept the lecture. YES I’m leaving. You’re too rude and disrespectful over an extremely prolonged period of time.

    Team Right (NOT “center-right”): CONCISE TEXT-ONLY NEWS links welcome — please and thanks.

  8. tallbloke says:

    I think there are a few text only browsers still available, that don’t download all the bandwidth-heavy junk. LYNX was one of them years ago.

    Edit: Here

    MSM Extremist Mess Age: “suddenly act with necessary force”

    If any right-leaning person dared breath the phrase “suddenly act with necessary force” to win a climate-ideology conflict, what do you think would happen?

  10. Zoe Phin says:

    I debunked the basis of these stripes a while ago:

  11. oldbrew says:

    The self-styled social media thought police have no credibility.

  12. Paul Vaughan says:

    Children should not be exempt from laws that protect us from terrorism.

    Lockdowns are state-sponsored terrorism on the populace. Health, wealth, security, and stability of billions was destroyed to save so few, exposing severely-extremist deep-state ideology.

    If the deep-states keep staging reasons to “suddenly act with necessary force” (recall 16 figures plans 10 year event series) maybe we all have good reason to believe in conspiracy theories ON PURPOSE — a conscious deliberate decision to defend health, wealth, security, and stability – and freedom – from terrorizing deep state extremism.

    Severe inequality is the new method of deep state terror. Imagine what would happen to some political activists if they went around saying “suddenly act with necessary force”. MSM is celebrating a child as a mouthpiece for terrorism.

    Western friends, the propaganda has become sufficiently ridiculous to seriously ask:
    Why is the far-left always threatening terrorism via MSM?

    It probably has something to do with this:

    That would explain why the fake-karma-integral database was implemented by IT-monopolies to exclude a large proportion of the western populace from the financial security needed to live a healthy, secure, stable life. The deep-state caste system design presently being implemented deliberately terrorizes those who do not share far-left extreme ideology. It’s intentionally designed to be torture to motivate what they call “behavior modification”.

    This is religious politics made international. It will result in dominance by extremist snakes who thrive on the continuous creation of instability. Western governments: You’ve made a very serious mistake. You’ve been tricked by a sly “ally”.

    A balance of powers is the only stable way forward. Leaning too hard towards one hell – as the west now is – won’t save us from the other.

  13. Paul Vaughan says:

    What can balance primal cynicism?
    Delightful mystery:

    “One or two bursts would occur over four days, followed by a 12-day period without any bursts, after which the pattern would repeat. This 16-day cycle occurred again and again”

    “These periodic bursts are something that we’ve never seen before”

    Some of the magic of the story is they create and share a bunch of possibilities. It is exactly this type of creativity that is totally missing from today’s absolutely disgusting global geopolitics.

    – – –

    FYI I have about a dozen new ways to isolate ~1470 year slip-cycles using Jovian orbital periods and different types of Earth years (tropical, anomalistic, sidereal).

    I actually don’t find this DO stuff very interesting (I see DO as just BS military propaganda designed to scare allies into elite-security schemes that undermine down-to-earth lives) but I know some of you guys love DO so I’ll be sharing …but moderators will have to keep a quick eye on the DO thread as the filter ABSOLUTELY WILL NOT let long slip-cycle calculations through.

    All of this stuff was dead-simple to turn up. As simple as: Look. As simple as: Therefore see (because you simply bothered to look).

    All I have to do is copy/paste a bunch of calculations, but I often don’t bother because the filter blocks calculations. It’s comical: The filter is happy to allow comments if one just writes rants.

  14. oldmanK says:

    Then the filter bothering PV is ‘people friendly’. Its what the authors say – and fear- : “for every ‘formula one puts in the text, half the readership is lost’.

  15. Paul Vaughan says:

    Snakes can PLAN around RELIABLE western naivety.
    Few western luminaries will see the hubristic “climate” paradox loaded in this:

    “From a strategic perspective […] China should want to drive a wedge between India and the United States to prevent any kind of counter-balance coalition.”

    Peas and shells stirred with a cute suspicion:

    “the Galwan Valley is located on the Chinese side of the Line of Actual Control […]” “Prime Minister […] said in a meeting with political opposition leaders on Friday that no one “has intruded into our territory, nor taken over any post.””

    This acknowledgement’s at sharp odds with repeated claims in earlier western reporting. Why would the west even THINK about stirring this? My advice to western security planners: PUT THE STICK DOWN. We’re not having peas and shells again tonight.

    “Idiot America – one nation controlled by the media” — Green Day

    Problems with jobs, SEVERE income-inequity, and homelessness at home?
    (sarc) QUICK! Stir international distraction! (/sarc)

    Everyone SEIZE THE STICK (it’s not right Johnson) …and WHO’s holding IT.

    “[…] council set up by President […] Macron […] inscribing the fight against global warming in the French Constitution.
    The council was tasked with finding ways to reduce France’s carbon emissions “in a spirit of social justice.”

    This is disingenuine.

    The plan is that people who do not buy into the “behavior modification” required for the “climate” plan (meaning the US military’s energy security plan) will be left behind in a new (and large if necessary) class with access to nothing. France is just one of the subservient puppets in the act (why they keep pushing so hard is because they’re being pushed).

    This new “identity politics” is a caste system. Corrupt judges measure your “karma integral” online. This determines whether you’re eligible for a job, home, and internet access.

  16. Paul Vaughan says:

    There. Just proved it again. The filter readily accepts wild rants, but it blocked lengthy calculations I submitted a few minutes earlier on the DO thread.

  17. Paul Vaughan says:

    Carefully Redacted Mess Age

    “[…] the confrontation […] occurred on […] side of the Actual Line of Control and […] forces had illegally entered […] territory.

    “The reckless actions […] violated agreements […] and […] principles […] They were evil in nature and the consequences were severe”

    “Asked why […] offering such a lengthy defence […] said that was to counter a “large amount of fake news” on the matter being circulated by […] diplomats and the country’s media.”

    There was a simple line-crossing, but the media closes the article by weaseling with a barrage of obfuscation. The first instinct is to laugh (at the media), but in this case it’s too dangerous because they’ll react with hateful wrath and fierce unyielding lust for savage vengeance when we call them out (“keep your friends close, your enemies closer…”)

    “The tensions appear to be rooted in […] objections to […] building a road through a valley connecting the region to an airstrip, possibly sparking […] move to assert control over territory along the border that is not clearly defined in places.”

    Maybe the media’s “thinking” here is more that people are ready to deliberately misrepresent since the public has been primed by the media to exhibit severe hatred and racism towards […] people.

    My Conclusion today is the same as yesterday and the day before:
    media = evil (and increasingly outsourced) snake, DELIBERATELY undermining world security by AGGRESSIVELY pushing the twin terrors of state-sponsored lockdowns and boldly weaponized identity politics.

    Probably someone in London or Washington was watering at the mouth at the thought of tricking […] into buzzing […] security forces.

    This can backfire so badly they’ll wish for the days of relatively simpler problems with relatiely predictable […] and their relatively predictable and relatively powerless media.

    The west will severely underestimate what they are stirring. We can’t afford the costs of naivety so fatal. The cure can’t be (ORDERS OF MAGNITUDE) worse than the dis-ease.

    Danger: Western politicians have insufficient skill for problems on this level. They will almost certainly sketch and shade the wrong way, provoking monstrous risk of disaster.

    I recommend releasing Meng Wanzhou.


    “Climate” is code for “US energy security”.

    DO is BS military propaganda designed to scare allies and “security partners” into elite-security schemes that undermine down-to-earth lives.

    The propaganda planners’ best idea for a public proxy was a CO2 ramp.

    The threshhold for “security partner” was lowered to viciously-biting snakes …that bite US.
    (“Keep your friends close …AND YOUR ENEMIES CLOSER.”)

    State-Sponsored Terrorism:

    Profoundly underestimating the primorial awakening their savage lockdowns triggered, they caused truly monstrous security issues on Earth.
