WMO – Record Cooling Is Record Warming
Posted on July 22, 2016 by tonyheller

Quote:
NASA’s just released data shows that Earth is cooling the fastest it has since at least 1880. Over the past four months, global temperatures have dropped more than half a degree C. The second fastest drop occurred 100 years ago in 1916.

The WMO describes this record cooling as record warming.

The earth is on track for its hottest year on record and warming at a faster rate than expected, the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) said on Thursday.

“What we’ve seen so far for the first six months of 2016 is really quite alarming,” David Carlson, director of the WMO’s Climate Research Program, told a news briefing. “This year suggests that the planet can warm up faster than we expected in a much shorter time… We don’t have as much time as we thought.”

Most Ordinary July – Ever
Posted on July 29, 2016 by tonyheller

http://realclimatescience.com/2016/07/m ... july-ever/

July afternoon temperature anomalies in the US (so far) are just above average since 1895, and the occurrence of 100 degree days was not far above a record low. Experts will describe this as the “hottest July ever.”

The three hottest July’s in the US were 1936, 1934, and 1901.

Here we go with another epic fail for the "warmers" as the prediction of record low Arctic ice for July has been proven wrong yet again by "Mother Nature"!!

NSIDC on Arctic Sea Ice: ‘A new record low September ice extent now appears to be unlikely.”
Anthony Watts / 30 mins ago August 7, 2016

From the National Snow and Ice Data Center.

Quote:
A cool and stormy Arctic in July

An extensive area of lower than average temperatures in the Central Arctic and the Siberian coast, attended by persistent low pressure systems in the same region, led to slightly slower than average sea ice decline through the month. The stormy pattern contributed to a dispersed and ragged western Arctic ice pack for July, with several polynyas beginning to form late in the month. A new record low September ice extent now appears to be unlikely.

EXPOSED: ‘Climate crusader’ California governor Jerry Brown took huge sums of money from “big oil”
Anthony Watts / 7 hours ago August 17, 2016

Quote:
From the “color of political slimebags is green” department. Note to readers: Show this to some idiot Internet heckler the next time you are accused of “being in the pay of big oil” for having an opinion on climate.

Here are two instances worth noting, but there are plenty more:

The report says that in November 2011, former governor Gray Davis — by then a lawyer for Los Angeles-based Occidental Petroleum Corp. — pressured Brown to fire two oil and gas regulators the company felt were slow to grant injection well permits for hydraulic fracturing (fracking). Two months later, Oxy contributed $250,000 to Brown’s Proposition 30 tax increase initiative, and shortly after that gave $100,000 to a pet Brown charity, the Oakland Military Institute. This surely looks like old-fashioned pay-to-play, and boosting “fracking” as well. Maybe he’s allowing fracking because the money is just too good.

The report shows that in June 2013, tough regulations were dropped from Senate Bill 4, a bill intended to restrict “fracking”. The same day, Chevron Corporation gave $135,000 to the Democratic Party. Several months later, Chevron wrote the party a $350,000 check and a week later, the party put $300,000 into Brown’s re-election campaign fund. On the same day, Chevron plunked $54,400 (the legal maximum) into Brown’s election coffer.

Pay to play; despite telling the world how tough on climate he is at the Paris accord, he’s been on the take with money from “big oil”. The slimage is strong with this one. And, let’s not forget, Brown is an idiot who thinks Los Angeles airport would be underwater soon, then got called out on it for its impossibility. I blame Richard Alley’s AGU talk, which was pandering directly to Brown.

Here is the press release and report on “Brown’s Dirty Hands”:

Consumer Watchdog Report Finds Big Energy Companies Gave Big $ and Got Big Favors From Governor Brown With Dollars and Decisions Flowing In Close Proximity To Each Other

The North Atlantic: Ground Zero of Global Cooling
Guest Blogger / 5 hours ago August 21, 2016

Guest essay by David Archibald

Quote:
The warning signs have been there for some time now – persistent failures of the wheat crop in Norway for example. The North Atlantic is cooling. The cooling trend was evident at the time of an expedition to investigate this phenonemon three years ago. The rate of cooling has now steepened up since then based on the latest data collated by Professor Humlum of the University of Oslo. From that data set, this graph shows the heat loss since 2004 for the top 700 metres of the water column:

Image

Figure 1: Monthly heat content anomaly in the uppermost 700 metres of the North Atlantic

As Figure 1 show, North Atlantic heat content peaked in 2004. The decline since the peak has been steeper than the rise. What would be the reason for 2004 being the peak year? Part of the answer may be that 2004 was the second peak of Solar Cycle 23 with a big increase in the proton flux. Another part of the answer may be that there was a big fall in the Ap Index in 2005 down to solar minimum-like levels followed, a couple of years later, by a discontinuity as the level fell through the floor of the established minimum level of activity.

Global Temperature Report: August 2016
Anthony Watts / 21 hours ago September 1, 2016

Quote:
August 2016 and 2016-to-date are second warmest

Notes on data released Sept. 1, 2016:

Through the first eight months of the year, 2016 seems to be racing toward what might be its place in history — as the second warmest year in the satellite temperature record. But just by a little bit, according to Dr. John Christy, director of the Earth System Science Center at The University of Alabama in Huntsville. “While global average temperatures peaked higher this year than they did in 1998, temperatures fell faster this spring and summer to levels that are cooler than they were at this same time of year in 1998. We had three months this year that were warmer than their 1998 counterparts, and five that were cooler. There is really no reliable way of predicting what the next four months will do, compared to those same months in 1998.”

25 New Papers Confirm A Remarkably Stable Modern Climate: Fewer Intense Storms, Hurricanes, Droughts, Floods, Fires…
By Kenneth Richard on 8. September 2016

Quote:
It has by now become common practice for just about any and every unusual weather occurrence, extreme temperature anomaly, or seismic event to be somehow, someway linked to the human practice of using energy derived from fossil fuels. No hurricane, flood, drought, storm, wildfire … is spared from potential anthropogenic implication.

Last week, a named hurricane (Hermine) that ultimately devolved into a tropical storm landed along the Florida coast — the first landfall in 11 years. As expected, the usual suspects reflexively blamed the storm on humans.

When a volcano erupts, the headliners are quick to point out that humans have made volcanic eruptions more likely.

When wildfires consume the landscape, human-caused warming is claimed to be fueling them.

In one year, human-caused warming can be said to be a cause of catastrophic drought in Texas.

“2011 Texas drought was 20 times more likely due to warming, study says”

A few years later, human-caused warming leads to catastrophic flooding in Texas.

“A new study directly links human-caused global warming to the [2015] catastrophic flooding in Texas and Oklahoma this spring.”

Even shifting plates beneath the Earth’s crust (earthquakes) can be creatively connected to human-caused climate change.

Those who may dare to question the link between humanity’s growing oil, gas, and coal consumption and a weather or tectonic event are swiftly called “climate deniers,” and the substantive discussion that never happened (and was never going to happen) ends then and there.

In the 1970s, extreme weather events were blamed on global cooling


Interestingly, in the 1970s it was common for severe weather anomalies (for example, the deadly catastrophic drought plodding throughout the continent of Africa) to be linked to the global cooling occurring at that time. In 1974, NOAA acknowledged that many climate scientists had linked the drought and other extreme weather anomalies to the -0.5°C drop in temperatures that had occurred from the 1940s to 1970s.

For the RICO 20, turn about is fair play! Or, be careful who you carry to court and for what reason!

EXCLUSIVE: Climate skeptic files sweeping RICO lawsuit against most all climate related NGO’s, and some individuals
Anthony Watts / 17 hours ago September 12, 2016

The cover page reads:

LEONID GOLDSTEIN
Plaintiff
v.

CLIMATE ACTION NETWORK, CERES INC., ROCKEFELLER BROTHERS FUND INC., GENERATION INVESTMENT MANAGEMENT LLP, FORD FOUNDATION, THE PEW CHARITABLE TRUSTS, GREENPEACE INTERNATIONAL CORP., ENVIRONMENTAL GRANTMAKERS ASSOCIATION CORP., THE CONSULTATIVE GROUP ON BIOLOGICAL DIVERSITY CORP., THE SIERRA CLUB FOUNDATION CORP., WORLD WIDE FUND FOR NATURE TRUST, US CLIMATE ACTION NETWORK CORP., GLOBAL CALL FOR CLIMATE ACTION CORP., GENERATION INVESTMENT MANAGEMENT US LLP, ALLIANCE FOR CLIMATE PROTECTION CORP., FENTON COMMUNICATIONS CORP., WORLD WILDLIFE FUND INC., GREENPEACE INC., GREENPEACE FUND INC., FRIENDS OF THE EARTH INTERNATIONAL CORP., FRIENDS OF THE EARTH US CORP., FRIENDS OF THE EARTH (ACTION) INC., ENVIRONMENTAL DEFENSE FUND INC., ENVIRONMENTAL DEFENSE ACTION FUND CORP., NATURAL RESOURCES DEFENSE COUNCIL INC., NRDC ACTION FUND CORP., SIERRA CLUB CORP., EARTHJUSTICE CORP., THE UNION OF CONCERNED SCIENTISTS INC., THE PEW MEMORIAL TRUST, J.

MACARTHUR FOUNDATION, THE WILLIAM & FLORA HEWLETT FOUNDATION, THE DAVID AND LUCILE PACKARD FOUNDATION, TIDES FOUNDATION CORPORATION, TIDES CENTER CORPORATION, CLIMATEWORKS FOUNDATION, THE ENERGY FOUNDATION, and JOHN AND JANE DOES 1-99
Defendants

Leonid Goldstein writes:

I have filed a civil RICO complaint against the Climate Alarmism Enterprise – Climate Action Network, Generation Investment Management, Ceres, Greenpeace, Sierra Club, Rockefeller Brothers Funds etc. – 40 corporations in total. Attached are the stamped front page and the full text of the complaint (not for publication verbatim, of course).

The alleged criminal Enterprise has been in existence since 1988. Alleged predicate offenses:
– Retaliation against witnesses
– Tampering with witnesses
– Bribing witnesses
– Bribing public officials
– Theft / Embezzlement from pension and/or welfare plans, including Social Security, and the ongoing attempt at embezzling up to $36 Trillions (with ‘T’) – see http://www.ceres.org

It reads in Parts:

1. This is a civil suit against Climate Action Network and other corporations, who engaged in a long-term criminal scheme, involving a false claim that anthropogenic release (or emissions) of carbon dioxide caused a dangerous “global warming” or a dangerous “climate change”, and persecution of the dissidents or demanding government actions, based on this false claim, including money transfer. In fact, the anthropogenic release of carbon dioxide significantly increases agricultural production worldwide. The surface warming, theoretically caused by increased concentration of carbon dioxide, is insignificant and almost undetectable, and is expected to be globally beneficial.
2. Beginning in early 1988 and continuing through the present (the “Scheme Period”), the Defendants and other enterprise members acted in concert with each other in order to further their criminal scheme (the “Climate Alarmism Enterprise”). Each defendant has participated in the operation and management of the Enterprise, and has committed numerous acts to maintain and expand the Enterprise.

7. Plaintiff sues for injury inflicted by the Defendants on him directly, and, additionally, based on standing of victims of racketeering activity to act as “private attorney generals” in prosecuting that racketeering activity (Rotella v. Wood, 528 U.S. 549, 556; 2000).
8. Unless stated otherwise, alleged below actions by Defendants were committed in the 10-years period from September 15, 2006 through the date of filing this Complaint.

13. Plaintiff Leonid Goldstein is a permanent resident of the United States of America, a resident of Texas, and a citizen of Israel. Plaintiff has Master of Science degree in Mathematics, more than 20 years of experience in software engineering, and multiple patents and publications in peer-reviewed literature in a certain renewable energy field. Plaintiff performed a peer review for some journals. Because of his education, professional experience and knowledge, Plaintiff is qualified to give expert testimony on certain questions of physics, mathematics, and computer modelling, relevant to a bone fide climate research and to the so-called “climate science.” Plaintiff also has additional knowledge and life experience that might qualify him to give expert testimony on the corrupt activities of the climate alarmism bodies. Plaintiff is willing to testify on these subjects in front of the US Congress, the Texas Legislature, the Supreme Court of the United States, and the Supreme Court of Texas, without compensation. Plaintiff has been paying into the Social Security for more than 15 years, and has savings in a retirement plan, protected by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974. Plaintiff expresses his views on subjects relevant to climate debates and climate alarmism on his not-for-profit website defyccc.com, which also features a search engine (defyccc.com/search), allowing anybody to find truthful information regarding the climate debates. Plaintiff also writes for other reputable web publications under the pen name “Ari Halperin.”

Full disclosure: Mr. Goldstein has written for WUWT under the pen name “Ari Halperin.”. At the time, I believed that to be his real name.
More on this breaking story as they become available, via updates that will be posted below.

Emails show indications that the EPA is corrupt – kowtows to green groups
Anthony Watts / 4 hours ago September 20, 2016

See this articleHERE

E&E Legal Releases Updated Report with New Emails and Video Detailing Extensive Collusion Between EPA and Green Activists in Writing 111(d), 111(b) Rules
Image

Quote:
Washington, D.C. – Today, after a long-delayed, nearly 500-page document production from EPA last week, the Energy & Environment Legal Institute (E&E Legal) updated its report detailing the degree to which EPA worked with outside special interest groups such as the Sierra Club, Clean Air Task Force and NRDC to craft its global warming rules. This report includes new revelations about senior EPA officials’ work on what one called an “offline channel” with reporters, industry lobbyists and green groups on numerous EPA rules with the intention to circumvent federal record keeping and transparency laws. These are included in an appendix to the report. Even Democratic congressional aides sought to use the “offline” account to coordinate on EPA issues.

As regards EPA’s greenhouse gas rules, one of which faces a major challenge next Tuesday before the full D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals, these emails show how EPA, rather than using its own experts to craft a rule in the public interest, chose to allow outside groups to draft its core foundations. Outside activists — who this report shows one senior EPA official, a political appointee, even agreed to raise money for in what would be a thoroughly unethical use of appointed office — drafted and provided their proposed key elements of the plan, and other comments to EPA officials, on the officials’ private email accounts. The report details the correspondence and how those outside special interest groups were allowed to produce EPA’s GHG “Options memo”.

Worse, because the comments and drafts of outside special interest groups were not incorporated into the comments docket or the Federal Register, the public never knew about what EPA was up to or who authored the proposed rule, and was deprived of its opportunity to meaningfully comment on EPA’s backdoor dealings. This makes EPA’s rule illegal. A new video also released by E&E Legal at the same time details much of this evidence, which the D.C. Circuit ruled it will not consider in determining whether the rules will survive before last week’s document dump.

Collusion between EPA and Green Activists HERE

Key emails documented in the updated report show that EPA lawyer Michael Goo, who was also assigned the responsibility of drafting of EPA’s “Options memo”, acknowledged to the industry lobbyist for the “Clean Energy Group” that his Yahoo account was an “offline channel” to correspond, one obviously kept outside of EPA’s system. Then-Administrator Lisa Jackson called the CEG EPA’s “industry validator” for its global warming rules in emails obtained previously by the Competitive Enterprise Institute.

Newly discovered documents show further collusion between the Clean Air Task Force and Goo including confirmation that Goo and CATF’s Conrad Schneider discussed, in detail, how Goo could speak to CATF’s foundation donors to encourage financial support. This is the same group to which he outsourced EPA rule-drafting responsibilities. Such efforts to encourage donations for a private group crosses a new ethical line for a Federal employee. Other Yahoo email shows Goo was personally close with such donor-group officers, who corresponded on his “offline” account to plan how he might use his new position at the Department of Energy to advance shared goals.

The updated report details how major-outlet environmental reporters, including those writing “Cool kids” and other fawning pieces about Goo used Goo’s Yahoo account to correspond on EPA-related matters, presumably keeping their correspondence outside of the legally required systems. This represents journalists remarkably and deliberately skirting a law, FOIA, that reporters otherwise purport to hold as sacred. One Politico reporter took the circumvention so far as to text Goo’s cell phone to tell him to check his Yahoo account.

Other emails show a former senior Harry Reid staffer turned lobbyist — and, now, Goo’s employer — used Goo’s Yahoo account to suggest that Goo use his new position at the Department of Energy in a way that would help the lobbyist’s work on the very EPA rule before the D.C. Circuit on Tuesday. Goo responded enthusiastically.

The update also shows how Goo worked with Sierra Club’s John Coequyt by text message on the fracking issue even while EPA and the Sierra Club were in litigation against each other on the same matter. Goo suggested to Coeyqut a strategy to get around OMB’s objections to regulating fracking, telling Coeyqut that Goo would need to “talk sense into OMB dickheads” who did not share the pair’s zeal for EPA regulation of the process in a certain rule.

The report concludes that the next administration must make rounding up the complete public record in the face of such widespread abuses is an imperative, however unlikely it is that each of the candidates would prioritize correcting abuses found on “offline emails”.

“We hope this report will show the public what sort of tricks EPA engages in when they think no one is watching,” said Craig Richardson, Executive Director of E&E Legal. “We also have new perspective on congressional opposition to oversight of these violations, and media reluctance to cover them.”

Added E&E General Counsel, David Schnare: “EPA apparently sees no distinction between its public interest function and the special interests that lobby it. The courts need to take a hard look at this collusive behavior, and carefully examine the legal implications of EPA drafting rules in this fashion.”

The Energy & Environment Legal Institute (E&E Legal) is a 501(c)(3) organization engaged in strategic litigation, policy research, and public education on important energy and environmental issues. Primarily through its petition litigation and transparency practice areas, E&E Legal seeks to correct onerous federal and state policies that hinder the economy, increase the cost of energy, eliminate jobs, and do little or nothing to improve the environment.

Good news for we climate "Skeptics", ie, Climate Change fraudsters are going to jail!

Climate Change Fraudsters Go To Jail
Anthony Watts / 2 hours ago September 29, 2016

From This Article

Quote:
Pair was allegedly pocketing the money given by NASA for their startup instead of paying graduate students to do the work

From AP and web reports:

Professor, Wife Sentenced After Defrauding NASA

The duo told NASA that their startup company would develop a cutting-edge sensor used to track climate change. Instead, prosecutors alleged, they used the company to funnel money to themselves.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A university professor in Pennsylvania has been sentenced to a year and a day in prison on a conviction of defrauding NASA by letting graduate students and researchers do all the work on a $700,000 project.

U.S. District Court Judge Harvey Bartle III also ordered Yujie Ding on Wednesday to pay a fine of $3,000 and restitution of $72,000. His wife, Yuliya Zotova, was sentenced to three months in prison.

Authorities said the Lehigh University engineering professor and his wife told NASA that their startup company ArkLight would develop a cutting-edge sensor used to track climate change. Instead, prosecutors alleged, they used the company “as a front to funnel federal grant money to themselves for research performed by students and others.”

Jurors convicting the couple of six of 10 fraud counts.

http://bigstory.ap.org/article/a827b865 ... uding-nasa

According to the U.S. Attorney’s Office, from August 2009 through July 2010, the pair submitted proposals to NASA seeking research funding by claiming that their business, ArkLight, was doing research and subcontracting work to Lehigh University where Ding was a professor.

Instead, an investigation found that the pair used ArkLight “as a front to funnel federal grant money to themselves for research performed by students and others working under Ding’s supervision at his university lab.”

According to the U.S. Attorney’s Office, the defendants sent invoices to NASA for research that, a jury found, ArkLight had not participated in.

Well, here's a start, ie, at least ONE of the "warmers" has admitted that a mistake was made!

Dr. Robert D. Cess admits mathematical errors in the AGW theory of the IPCC -
by Kyoji Kimoto

Quote:
Soden & Held [1] shows climate sensitivity is 3°K for 2xCO2 from the 14 GCM studies for the IPCC 4th Assessment Report (2007) as follows:

Climate sensitivity = no-feedback sensitivity (Planck response) x feedbacks

= 1.2°K x 2.5 = 3°K

Here, feedbacks are water vapor, ice albedo, lapse rate and cloud feedback.

In the AGW theory of the IPCC, the central assumption is that the Planck response is 1.2°K. Cess [2, 3] obtained the Planck feedback parameter lambda0 of -3.3(W/m2)/K utilizing eqn (1), giving the Planck response of 1.2K with the radiative forcing RF of 4W/m2 for 2xCO2 as follows:

Image



Policy based on false science

There is no need for the restriction of fossil fuel usage from the AGW scares claimed by the IPCC with its mathematically erroneous GCM studies. And ratification of Paris climate deal is harmful to mankind due to its useless CO2 regulations causing huge economic losses to the world.

Only 53% Of Climatologists & Meteorologists, 36% Of Engineers & Geoscientists, 19% Of Agronomists Are ‘Consensus’ Believers
By Kenneth Richard on 6. October 2016

Quote:
Americans’ beliefs about climate change were recently surveyed by the Pew Research Center, and the results were made public a few days ago. Pew pollsters found that a combined 51% of Americans agree that (a) there is no clear evidence the Earth is warming, or (b) natural factors are the main cause of climate changes. Therefore, just 48% of Americans believe the Earth is getting warmer, and this warming is mostly caused by humans. This belief percentage has essentially remained unchanged for the last 10 years, or since the survey was first conducted in 2006.

Ninety-Seven Percent Bunk

To summarize, the American public is about as likely to believe that climate changes are mostly caused by humans as are meteorologists and climatologists (48% vs. 53%, respectively). And Americans in general are much more likely to believe that humans are the primary cause of climate changes as professionals trained in the physical sciences: 48% of U.S. citizens are believers, whereas ~20-35% of professionals with physical science degrees (engineers, Earth scientists, agronomists) are believers.

To put it non-delicately, the claim that “almost all” scientists (i.e., 97%) believe that most changes in the climate system are caused by humans is … bunk.

And most Americans already knew that.

Here's yet another epic fail by the "warmers" where Arctic sea ice is concerned. They had predicted for years now that by September of 2016 ALL sea ice would be gone! NOT!!

Experts said Arctic sea ice would melt entirely by September 2016 - they were wrong

Dire predictions that the Arctic would be devoid of sea ice by September this year have proven to be unfounded after latest satellite images showed there is far more now than in 2012.

Scientists such as Prof Peter Wadhams, of Cambridge University, and Prof Wieslaw Maslowski, of the Naval Postgraduate School in Moderey, California, have regularly forecast the loss of ice by 2016, which has been widely reported by the BBC and other media outlets.

Prof Wadhams, a leading expert on Arctic sea ice loss, has recently published a book entitled A Farewell To Ice in which he repeats the assertion that the polar region would free of ice in the middle of this decade.

As late as this summer, he was still predicting an ice-free September.

Yet, when figures were released for the yearly minimum on September 10, they showed that there was still 1.6 million square miles of sea ice (4.14 square kilometres), which was 21 per cent more than the lowest point in 2012.

For the month of September overall, there was 31 per cent more ice than in 2012, figures released this week from the National Snow and Ice Data Centre (NSIDC) show. This amounts to an extra 421,000 (1.09 million square kilometres) of sea ice, making the month only the fifth lowest since records began.
