Lorne Gunter: Thirty years of warmer temperatures go poof

Thirty years of warmer temperatures go poof

Lorne Gunter, Full Comment
In early September, I began noticing a string of news stories about scientists rejecting the orthodoxy on global warming.
Actually, it was more like a string of guest columns and long letters to the editor since it is hard for skeptical scientists to get published in the cabal of climate journals now controlled by the Great Sanhedrin of the environmental movement.
Still, the number of climate change skeptics is growing rapidly. Because a funny thing is happening to global temperatures -- they're going down, not up.

On the same day (Sept. 5) that areas of southern Brazil were recording one of their latest winter snowfalls ever and entering what turned out to be their coldest September in a century, Brazilian meteorologist Eugenio Hackbart explained that extreme cold or snowfall events in his country have always been tied to "a negative PDO" or Pacific Decadal Oscillation. Positive PDOs -- El Ninos -- produce above-average temperatures in South America while negative ones -- La Ninas -- produce below average ones.

Dr. Hackbart also pointed out that periods of solar inactivity known as "solar minimums" magnify cold spells on his continent. So, given that August was the first month since 1913 in which no sunspot activity was recorded -- none -- and during which solar winds were at a 50-year low, he was not surprised that Brazilians were suffering (for them) a brutal cold snap.

"This is no coincidence," he said as he scoffed at the notion that manmade carbon emissions had more impact than the sun and oceans on global climate.

Also in September, American Craig Loehle, a scientist who conducts computer modelling on global climate change, confirmed his earlier findings that the so-called Medieval Warm Period (MWP) of about 1,000 years ago did in fact exist and was even warmer than 20th-century temperatures.

Prior to the past decade of climate hysteria and Kyoto hype, the MWP was a given in the scientific community. Several hundred studies of tree rings, lake and ocean floor sediment, ice cores and early written records of weather -- even harvest totals and censuses --confirmed that the period from 800 AD to 1300 AD was unusually warm, particularly in Northern Europe.

But in order to prove the climate scaremongers' claim that 20th-century warming had been dangerous and unprecedented -- a result of human, not natural factors -- the MWP had to be made to disappear. So studies such as Michael Mann's "hockey stick," in which there is no MWP and global temperatures rise gradually until they jump up in the industrial age, have been adopted by the UN as proof that recent climate change necessitates a reordering of human economies and societies.

Dr. Loehle's work helps end this deception.

Don Easterbrook, a geologist at Western Washington University, says, "It's practically a slam dunk that we are in for about 30 years of global cooling," as the sun enters a particularly inactive phase. His examination of warming and cooling trends over the past four centuries shows an "almost exact correlation" between climate fluctuations and solar energy received on Earth, while showing almost "no correlation at all with CO2."

An analytical chemist who works in spectroscopy and atmospheric sensing, Michael J. Myers of Hilton Head, S. C., declared, "Man-made global warming is junk science," explaining that worldwide manmade CO2 emission each year "equals about 0.0168% of the atmosphere's CO2 concentration ... This results in a 0.00064% increase in the absorption of the sun's radiation. This is an insignificantly small number."

Other international scientists have called the manmade warming theory a "hoax," a "fraud" and simply "not credible."

While not stooping to such name-calling, weather-satellite scientists David Douglass of the University of Rochester and John Christy of the University of Alabama at Huntsville nonetheless dealt the True Believers a devastating blow last month.

For nearly 30 years, Professor Christy has been in charge of NASA's eight weather satellites that take more than 300,000 temperature readings daily around the globe. In a paper co-written with Dr. Douglass, he concludes that while manmade emissions may be having a slight impact, "variations in global temperatures since 1978 ... cannot be attributed to carbon dioxide."
Moreover, while the chart below was not produced by Douglass and Christy, it was produced using their data and it clearly shows that in the past four years -- the period corresponding to reduced solar activity -- all of the rise in global temperatures since 1979 has disappeared.

It may be that more global warming doubters are surfacing because there just isn't any global warming.

Subject: Do we have to fear a rise in sea levels?
Bro. John Ecob sent this out early this morning and I thought it was so good I decided to pass it on.
Have a read, and then pass it on to all the "warmenist alarmists" you know.

The Australian Government has just issued a report which claims the oceans will rise 1.1 metres (over the next century) as reported on ABC News on Saturday 14 November 2009.
The following facts show this claim is ludicrous.
The surface of the earth is about 500 million
This equals 150 million of land plus 350 million of ocean.
When ice in the ocean melts it displaces its own volume and adds nothing to the volume of water in the oceans.
The ice at the North Pole is only 3.25 feet above sea level much of which melts each year with no effect on sea levels.
If the oceans are to rise then water must come from melting ice ON LAND.
It can't come from anywhere else. (Sea ice melting does not raise the sea level.)
The area of land with permanent ice cover is about 27 to 30 million square km.
(Antarctic 14million square km. + 40% of Russia, which is 7 million square km. + Canada and Alaska 5million square km. + Greenland 1.5 million, which is a total of 27.5mill Say, possibly, 30 mill
So for the oceans to rise by 1.1metres there would have to be 350 x 1.1 = 12.8 m deep of ice melt from off ALL the land mass which has permanent ice cover. (30 mill

Note :No allowance is made for the increased area of ocean if the waters rose 1.1 metres) (Very important point!!!)

The largest area of land with permanent ice cover is Antarctica which has almost half the total land area covered by ice (14 million
Most of the Antarctic ice is between 2000 metres and 4000 metres ABOVE sea level or higher than Mt Kosciusko (2,228m).
Temperatures reduce with elevation, (which mean that most of the ice in Antartica can NEVER melt unless the temperature were to rise by at least 50 degrees C.)
The Average temperature at the south pole is -450 C and it can reach -850 C.
Just suppose that the temperature rose 3.250 C over the next 100 years as the climate change people say, what difference would it make to most of the ice caps on the frozen land masses? (None whatsoever!)
However, greenhouse gases are much greater in the warm climates, where water vapour is the largest component, around the equator and less at the poles, so the warming effect of greenhouse gases would have the least effect where the ice caps are.
For the Ice at the South pole to raise the level of the oceans it would have to travel thousands of km to get to the ocean and then the temperature would have to REMAIN above zero long enough.
This simply doesn’t happen!
Any man who calls himself a scientist and says the oceans will rise 1.1 metres hasn’t got past primary school maths!!
Obviously some politicians needs to go back and brush up on their 3 Rs.
It is an absolute scientific impossibility for there to be any (appreciable) rise in the oceans. The Bible says:
Jeremiah ch.5:22 "Fear ye not me? saith the LORD: will ye not tremble at my presence, which have placed the sand for the bound of the sea by a perpetual decree, that it cannot pass it: and though the waves thereof toss themselves, yet can they not prevail; though they roar, yet can they not pass over it?"
