"Global Warming" Cycle Winding Down? Don't Expect To See It In The Fish Wrapper

As evidence has been showing for a long time, global climate goes in cycles - warming, cooling, warming again, cooling again, and so on (however, don't expect the global warming hype mongers at the Dead Fish Wrapper to own up to that any time soon).  This fact is demonstrated by a great graphic produced by Cliff Harris and Randy Mann at Long Range Weather (h/t Noel Sheppard).

Notice the nice cyclical movement of average temperature?  It's facts like these that the Dead Fish Wrapper would never publish.

Even better, Harris and Mann write about how this warming cycle could be winding down.

 For many years, following widespread ICE AGE predictions back in the 1970s, we've heard that our planet is warming up "at an alarming rate". A study from the National Academy of Science claims that "global warming is real and has been strengthening since 1981." These scientists say that the leading cause of this latest warming is the increasing emissions of greenhouse gases and carbon dioxide. They also state that by the year 2100, temperatures may increase by 2.5 degrees to as much as 10.4 degrees Fahrenheit above those of today.

Up until late 2002, much of the Northern Hemisphere north of Latitude 40 was actually becoming GREENER with less total ice. In fact, the average growing season had been extended by around 2 weeks based on satellite data at the time.

BUT, now, we believe that temperatures are beginning to cool again, particularly in north- central Canada where this summer there was only about 2 weeks between damaging freezes from late June into mid-July. One of our Harris-Mann Climatology clients went fishing between July 10-13 in northwestern Saskatchewan and reported "piles of ice" still on the ground in the region and temperatures close to the freezing mark.

Although the recent summers of the early 21st Century have been amongst the hottest and driest on record across most of the U.S., the winter seasons, by extreme contrast, have been some of the coldest in recorded history. For example, Siberia in Russia reported readings of -70 degrees in January of 2001.

Even if our planet is warming up as many scientists claim, we're still much cooler today than we were four to eight-thousand years ago. In fact, there were probably no mid-latitude glaciers about 800 million years ago, because the Earth's climate was so mild at the time.

Temperatures today are primarily measured over concrete surfaces compared to grassy ones years ago. We all know that concrete and asphalt absorb heat and this often results in higher afternoon temperatures, especially when we have conditions of very little wind. During a typical hot, summer day, high temperatures may be as much as 3-7 degrees warmer at the official airport or downtown locations compared to outlying rural areas.

A comprehensive climatological study of over 600 cities both in North America and around the rest of the world, which I finally completed in mid-2001, compared the average (mean) temperatures in Fahrenheit for the six decades from 1880 through 1940 and the following 60-year period ending December 31, 2000.

Needless-to-say, I was a bit surprised to discover that this planet overall had only warmed up a mere .7 of one degree Fahrenheit on a global scale from 1941 through the balance of the 20th Century.

In fact, if one removed the 15 largest cities, the "concrete and asphalt jungles", from the study, Mother Earth would have actually COOLED OFF about .4 of one degree Fahrenheit in the last six decades.

Tokyo, Mexico City, Sao Paulo, Mumbai (Bombay), Seoul, Beijing, Osaka, Rio and Delhi each warmed up by more than a full degree Fahrenheit between 1941 and 2001.

In the U.S., only Los Angeles, Phoenix, Dallas, St. Louis, Oklahoma City, Mobile, Alabama, Houston, Salt Lake City, San Jose and Sacramento warmed by a degree or more Fahrenheit during the same 60-year time span.

Even New York City, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Boston, Washington, D.C. and Miami along the Atlantic Coastline only warmed up slightly, despite the so-called "heat island" effects.

There were dozens of cities, mostly with populations under 300,000 people, that actually turned COOLER during the balance of the 20th Century. These cities included; Billings, Montana, Bismarck, North Dakota, Boise, Idaho, Fargo, North Dakota, Fairbanks, Alaska, Seattle, Washington, Spokane, Washington and Coeur d'Alene, Idaho which cooled by .4 of one degree Fahrenheit from 1941 to 2001.

As previously mentioned, temperatures today are primarily observed over concrete or asphalt surfaces, rather than those "grassy knolls" of years past.

We all know that concrete and asphalt absorb heat and this often results in higher afternoon temperatures, especially when we have conditions of very little wind. During a typical hot, summer day, high temperatures may be as much as 3-7 degrees warmer at the official airport or downtown locations compared to outlying areas.

Robert Felix, author of "Not By Fire, But By Ice" discusses the possibility of an upcoming ICE AGE within the next 20-30 years. He claims, and has the data to prove it, that many glaciers are expanding worldwide, some as much as 18 feet per year and that sea levels have "dropped" slightly since the early 1990s. According to Felix, major ice ages occur about every 11,500 years with the last one occurring nearly 12,000 years ago, so we're supposedly overdue for a BIG COOLING TREND, which may have already begin as Greenland's and Antarctica's ice sheets are thickening at a rapid pace.

Our climate would also cool very quickly if we were to see a series of MAJOR volcanic eruptions take place over a short period of time. Since the early 1990s, there has been an overall significant increase in volcanic activity in the Philippines, Japan, Indonesia, El Salvador, Tanzania, Mexico, Columbia, Italy, Alaska and our Pacific Northwest. Since the late 1990s, we've likewise seen a dramatic increase in undersea volcanic eruptions, especially in the western Pacific Ocean regions.

Global temperatures cooled rather dramatically following the massive Mt. Pinatubo eruption in June of 1991 in the Philippines. Nearly 200 years before, there was an even more dramatic global cooling associated with the eruption of Mt. Tambora in 1815, which put an incredible EIGHT TIMES more volcanic material into the upper atmosphere than the recent strong eruption of Mt. Pinatubo. The following year, 1816, is still being referred to by New England's historians as "Eighteen-Hundred and Froze to Death". Snow fell every month that year at the higher elevations in the interior Northeast while freezes blackened crops that summer in the valleys from northern New England and southeastern Canada all the way south into the Carolinas. In the past few years, we've started to see a trend towards later frosts in the spring and earlier freezes in the fall seasons, despite the warmer than normal temperatures.

Whether we continue to warm up or cool down still remains to be seen, but there's no doubt that we're in a long-term cycle of Wide Weather "EXTREMES". Stay tuned...  

 

 

But don't expect anything like this to be published in the Dead Fish Wrapper any time soon; it might actually show balanced news reporting.

you are a dumbass

you are a dumbass

No, it's not clear

It's clear from all the evidence presented that any current temperature anomalies or trends are obviously created by humans and their interaction with the environment. Yep. It's all our fault, and we are the only ones who can fix this.

Riiiiiiiiiiight.  Somebody obviously hasn't been paying attention to facts...

Okay... A lot of scientific

Okay...
A lot of scientific input here... A lot of stuff to consider...
But one main point stands out:

It's clear from all the evidence presented that any current temperature anomalies or trends are obviously created by humans and their interaction with the environment. Yep. It's all our fault, and we are the only ones who can fix this. We must choose paper, not plastic. Keep your tires inflated! -even though they're made out of rubber, which is like plastic, only different. Drive an electric car, because the gas turbines used to generate the electricity don't need fish ladders, which don't work anyway, because everyone knows that every dam has a zillion fish in front of it just trying to get upstream. We must notch the dams so the fish can get through -those zillions of them who've been waiting for the notch. When using your [electric] curling iron, don't use hair spray (you know... CFC's). Switch from R12 to R134, or whatever the latest R is, because, though it's pretty much chemically equivalent, it's legislatively less harmful.

We must all do our part to pitch in and cool the planet. Use an electric snow blower to clear your driveway, because a gas-powered one emits carbon. God knows we have enough carbon already! It's the most abundant element on the planet. Last thing we need is more carbon. That stuff's bad. Stop barbecuing meat because vegetables take less pesticides than cows do. And cows poop, which makes methane -also bad. Plus, barbecuing generates carbon too, so...

What we need, apparently, is an increase in volcanic activity. Volcanoes belch out megatons of carbon - much of it in reactive forms - but apparently volcanic carbon doesn't have the same deleterious effect that human-generated carbon does. Volcanic carbon: good. Human carbon: bad. We must all keep this in mind. Do what you can to encourage volcanic activity.

And remember, if someone offers you a Halon fire extinguisher... Just say NO.

What's your point?

You mean in contradiction to Al Gore, who has no scientific credentials, has had his conclusions countered factually countless times, and admits it's okay to lie and exaggerate in order to make a point?

I'm also aware that the global warming hype has been countered by simple facts such as record cold temps throughout the world this year, and demonstrations that temperature is much more closely tied to things like sunspot activity.

I've pointed out multipe times here how the "consensus" is nothing but political crap that has nothing to do with science.

By the, way, can you show me one time where anything historical in the Old Testament has been discredited?

Don't let the facts get in the way of the hype, eh?

 

lol

Are you aware that you have just cited a graph made by a TV weatherman and a guy with no professional qualifications whatsoever? Are you aware that their "research" involves, the use of the Old Testament as a historical record of climate? Are you aware that their "conclusions" are contradicted by literally hundreds of published, peer-reviewed scientific papers and supported by essentially none? Do you even care?
