Connecting The Dots On Extreme Climate Fraud

More mind-blowing climate fraud from Andrew Freedman, who claims that hurricanes, heat waves, floods and fires in 2016 are evidence of man-made climate change.

Connecting the dots on 2016’s extreme summer weather and global warming

The US is experiencing the quietest decade for hurricanes on record, and Andrew is trying to get people upset about hurricanes.

Forest fire burn acreage is down 80% since the 1930’s. Andrew wants his readers to believe fires are getting worse and at record levels..

On this date in 1910, the largest fire in US history burned up nearly as many acres as all of the US fires in 2016.

Andrew claims that wildfires are blazing across the drought stricken west, when in fact outside of California the last two years have been much wetter than normal, and we have had very few fires in the Rocky Mountains since 2012. We are currently experiencing record cold temperatures in Colorado, and Winter Park has already reported snow.

Andrew says that four states have experienced floods, compared to March, 1936 when fourteen states and 106 cities were simultaneously flooded, while 20% of the country was covered with thick dust.

This is what Pittsburgh looked like during the 1936 flood, when it was under 16 feet of water.


This is what the west looked like in the 1930’s.


The summer of 1936 was by far the hottest summer in US history. It caused massive death and destruction.

The summer of 2016 has been notable in that the area of the US affected by extremely hot days has been among the lowest on record. The exact opposite of what Andrew is claiming.

Andrew mentions some very questionable claims of record heat in the Middle East, ignoring that until a few years ago the official hottest global temperature was 136 in in Libya in 1922.

The highest temperature ever recorded in the world was 136.4 degrees Fahrenheit (58 degrees Celsius) on this day at El Azizia, | South African History Online

Andrew also ignores that the current official record global temperature of 134F occurred in 1913 in California, when CO2 was 300 PPM.

Andrew also ignores that Greenland set its coldest July temperature on record a few weeks ago.

Every single one of Andrew’s claims is either completely wrong or wildly misleading. But that is the norm for climate reporting.

    The Chinchaga Firestorm – 1950
    In 1950, the biggest firestorm documented in North America–one fire alone burned 3,500,000 acres of boreal forest in northern Alberta and British Columbia–created the world’s largest smoke layer in the atmosphere. The smoke travelled half way around the northern hemisphere and made the moon and sun appear blue. The Chinchaga Firestorm is …

    I don’t remember the Moon, but in western Pennsylvania the Sun went orange to deep orange to – black sky and darkness.
    Note the date – we did not know what it was. End of world! I was a little kid.

    Because “climate reporting” has become a hardcore and unethical sales job. When sales dip, the salesmen take off their gloves.

  3. RAH says:

    Just thought I should mention that there is a tropical depression forecast to develop stronger that is looking like it could be the best candidate so far for ending the decade + long major hurricane hiatus N. America has enjoyed.

    That 2nd depression is forecast to strengthen.

    • R. Shearer says:

      That’s the scariest tropical cyclone forecast “evah.” sarc/

      • RAH says:

        I think the chance of us dodging the CAT III or higher bullet this year is not looking too good. If that one misses there are plenty more coming behind it and with SSTs in the Caribbean, Gulf, and eastern sea board being higher than usual the probability of strengthening right up to landfall is high.

        Meanwhile in the Pacific there is a lot going on:

        • Latitude says:

          RAH, too much shear in the Carib…and they will both hook to the north

          • RAH says:

            The first one certainly will miss. I question the path of the 2nd. The European has it recurving up the east coast. But I would agree that the further south they are right now, the better their chances of striking the US.

          • RAH says:

            I should have said recurving just off the east coast.

          • Latitude says:

            …and the better chance of being a nada

          • RAH says:

            Way too close for comfort. A few degrees deflection west from the forecast track and what looks like a great opportunity for east coast surfers turns into the end of the record.

            So what would your bet be that it will end this season? My guess is there is a greater than 60% chance that the US will suffer a strike from a major hurricane strike this year. Next season the odds will almost certainly get worse than that.

        • Andy DC says:

          A truly amazing stretch of almost 11 years without a major hurricane may or may not be coming to an end.

    • James J Strom says:

      It’s a long term prediction to project landfall for these systems. NOAA’s text advisory is not even sure they will become hurricanes. I assume it’s normal to see systems like that at this time of year. It’s quite interesting.

      Whenever I think about hurricane forecasting I remember this wry post from Tony, back when he was Steve. NOAA bet on every horse in the race.

        • Stewart Pid says:

          Rah when commenting on the storms please use names if the storm has been named. I can’t tell if one of your two talked about storms is Fiona but it must be
          Joe B had Fiona heading north of Bermuda and then done but then yesterday said Fiona is showing signs of breaking up. However we are at the time of year when breaking up and then reforming & strengthening is more common. Cheers.
          I did like Tony’s old comment of NOAA betting on every horse in the race – spot on that was!!

          • RAH says:

            What I and the others I posted about in the links are talking about is the 2nd depression, as yet unnamed to the ESE of Fiona as shown in this graphic.


            No matter if it becomes something or not the fact is that the potential for hurricane formation is rising. The dust cleared off the west African coast clearing the way for the multiple tropical waves coming forth to have a chance to develop. Just in time for the September peak of the season.

          • RAH says:

            Here it is again and it has a name. Disturbance 99 and Joe at weatherbell is really taking notice of it. Check out 8/22 daily update:


            The National Hurricane Center using the US models which have been miserable says:

            “Environmental conditions are somewhat conducive for
            development of this system during the next couple of days while
            it moves west-northwestward at 15 to 20 mph near the northern
            Leeward Island and the Greater Antilles. Large-scale conditions
            could become more conducive later this week while the system moves
            near Hispaniola and then the southeastern and central Bahamas. An
            Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft is scheduled to
            investigate this disturbance later this morning. Interests from the
            islands of the northeastern Caribbean Sea to the Bahamas should
            monitor the progress of this system. Gusty winds, heavy rains, and
            possible flash floods and mud slides could occur over these areas
            regardless of tropical cyclone formation. Please consult products
            issued by your local meteorological offices for further details.
            * Formation chance through 48 hours…medium…50 percent
            * Formation chance through 5 days…medium…60 percent”

            This is the one that as things stand now has the best shot of effecting the US Mainland and the potential for development is greater than NOAA is predicting now according to various other sources. The European show it developing and coming up just off the east coast of the US but that could easily change for better or worse.

  4. Zebo says:

    if you want to controle taxes you have to controle their money
    ((let me controle a countries currency and i don’ care who makes the laws-a.m. rotuschild))
    or controle their economy((TPP,TTiP etc)
    or controle them with debt((IMF,Worldbank))

    an ultimate key in this globalisation game is to tax people globaly
    and global warming is the key and the only possibility for a tiny powerhungry elitist minority just like destroying democracy ,gun grabbing and a police state is the only chance to controle the USA.

    The global warming tax will work that way that the UN will decide how much co2
    a country should be allowed to produce.
    As soon as they see that a countries economy is running too well(=being independent,self sufficient,making no debts)
    they will reduce the number of co2 that this country is allowed to produce.
    As result the countries economie will collaps
    and the country will be forced to beg for money at the IMF or World Bank.
    The IMF will than start its usuall game:”We will give you money but you’ll have
    to do what we say=mass privatisation of state properties for pennies on a dollar by corporations//destruction of social systems//austerity”

  5. Ed Bo says:

    But Tony, don’t you realize that the Earth was an Edenic paradise where nothing went wrong until we tasted of the forbidden fruit of fossil fuels?…

  6. CheshireRed says:

    These people just ignore reality and double down on hysteria to suit. It’s like calling up for a take away:
    “Can I have one cat 5 hurricane with an unprecedented hail storm, a large record drought and a sky-rocketing global temperature increase, please. Oh and can I get one worse-than-previously-thought sea level rise with a super-sized ocean heat content as well, with a melting Arctic is cap to go?”

  7. none says:

    Off Topic but I know goddard is a fan of these.

    Ship of fools… cruise ship edition.

    “But this week, the Crystal Serenity, a 300-metre-long luxury cruise liner with 700 crew members, became the largest commercial cruise ship to sail into the Northwest Passage, the punishing sea corridor that winds through Canada’s Arctic archipelago.”

    “The Serenity’s sold-out journey set off Tuesday from Seward, Alaska, and will dock in New York City on Sept. 17. It represents one of the final uncharted frontiers for travellers, who are doling out $22,000 to $120,000 (U.S.) for the lavish cruise, and unnervingly points to how destructive human activity has made such voyages possible in recent years.”

    “Crystal’s luxury-line competitor, Regent Seven Seas, had to cancel a similar trip to the Northwest Passage in July, 2017, over concerns of large Arctic ice packs.”

    • Chris Hanley says:

      Words fail, they are being escorted by an icebreaker no less “… along with two helicopters to assess ice conditions …”.
      Hopefully the huge cruise ship will run aground the passengers abandon ship to be stranded on an ice flow and be eaten by starving polar bears.

  8. Andy says:

    I think Hype would be a better word than fraud.

    There is a lot of hype in the climate world.


    • Caleb says:

      I hate to say it, but I think it is fraud by now. And the “adjusting” of temperatures should be called “falsifying public documents.”

      There are probably some young scientists who are working very, very hard to prove a theory they believe in, and slowly but surely seeing you can’t prove what isn’t true. They are wrong but innocent. However there are also fellows old enough to know better, it they are simply jaded and cynical and guilty as hell.

      • Gail Combs says:

        It has been a politicalfraud for a long long time as the Climategate e-mails showed.

        This bragging was very telling:

        An interview with Tim Wirth who organized the 1988 Senate hearing at which James Hansen addressed global warming. Wirth led the U.S. negotiating team at the Kyoto Summit. He is now president of the United Nations Foundation. These are his words about how he scammed Congress:

        …Believe it or not, we called the Weather Bureau and found out what historically was the hottest day of the summer…

        …. Dukakis was trying to get an edge on various things and was looking for spokespeople, and two or three of us became sort of the flacks out on the stump for Dukakis, making the separation between what Democratic policy and Republican policy ought to be. So it played into the presidential campaign in the summer of ’88 as well….

        So a number of things came together…

        … What we did it was went in the night before and opened all the windows, I will admit, right? So that the air conditioning wasn�t working inside the room and so when the, when the hearing occurred there was not only bliss, which is television cameras in double figures, but it was really hot. …

        So Hansen’s giving this testimony, you’ve got these television cameras back there heating up the room, and the air conditioning in the room didn’t appear to work. So it was sort of a perfect collection of events that happened that day, with the wonderful Jim Hansen, who was wiping his brow at the witness table and giving this remarkable testimony. …

  9. fourtimesayear says:

    Sheesh. There will always be “more” of all of that. While I’m fairly certain there hasn’t been an increase in any of it, there has been an increase in media hype.

  10. BobbyK says:

    I’m sure many here are already aware of this news but just trying to add support to the cause of this site

  11. RickS says:

    To bad and the real shame of it is that good ole “Andrew” hadn’t been tied to a pier pylon some where in South Florida back in August 1992 as Hurricane “Andrew” came ashore !

    First of all the World would be a better place !

    And, good ole “Andrew” could have seen “real” sea level rising up close, say in-your-face, which again would have been a good thing, at least for Truth and Honesty…

  12. RAH says:

    OK for you folks in Florida and the SE coast of the US. Time to start paying attention. to 99L. And though the National Hurricane center says Fiona is done, don’t quite count it out.
