Forecasting The Next Big Global Warming Scam

Global temperatures have been plummeting this year at a record rate, and the US is facing record cold for Christmas.



Experts who make their living lying about global warming are about to begin their next big scam, blaming the polar vortex on global warming and declining Arctic ice.

The polar vortex is a favorite target of climate scamsters, who 40 years ago blamed it on global cooling and expanding Arctic ice.

    Just from my own conversations and experiences I would say nobody with 2 brain cells in their noggin that’s been around a few years believes them anyway. When they’re bundled up and shoveling, plowing, and blowing the global warming off their drives, patios, walks, or ramps to their loading docks in freezing temps with a wind chill they’re not too receptive to such Polar Vortex BS. I have heard it for years from people I see at work and my friends etc.

    It’s looking like we here in Indiana are in for a good old fashioned winter like I remember from the 60’s and 70’s. I have mentioned that for the last few weeks to people I talk to and not a one was enthusiastic about that possibility . The best they have to say is something like “At least we might have a white Christmas”.

    But I am looking forward to putting my 2 year old granddaughter on a sled and towing her around the field with the 4-wheeler.

      RAH you will really love this story…

      Rex Brocki says:

      Don’t forget the “order next higher assembly” scam.

      Funny war story:

      During my misspent youth as a member of Uncle Sugar’s Air Farce (the USAF), one of the common things we saw in the ordering of parts to repair the airplanes was that if we needed just, say, the mounting screws for a generator, CONgress would have gone through our supply manuals and inserted the dreaded words “order next higher assembly,” forcing us to replace a perfectly good generator because it was “more economical” to replace the whole mess (complete horse manure, of course… obviously the generator manufacturer had friends in CONgress).

      Even worse, DIFFERENT CONgressional committees would go through the supply rules at different times and make multiple insertions so that you would try ordering screws and wind up receiving a whole airborne electronics rack! We of course found workarounds (a different gadget might use the same mounting screws, for example, which you could still safely order). However, since these workarounds were all “off the record,” there was no way to officially promulgate them across the service: the transport (MAC) bases only knew the workarounds for transport aircraft parts, fighter bases (TAC) only knew the shortcuts for fighter parts, etc..

      One fine day, a B52 bomber landed at the transport base I worked at and had a problem with their compass. Since I had been a “pipeline instructor” (a student who did extremely well and was retained by the training base as a temporary instructor) at tech school, I knew how to repair Avionics systems on the BUFF (“Big Ugly Flying Blanker”), and was stuck with the job. HOWEVER, I had never ordered parts for B52’s, merely diagnosed and repaired them.

      When I went out to the plane, I discovered that the problem was in the “flux valve transmitter.” Explaining exactly what such a transmitter is would be beyond the scope of this story, but just suffice it to say that it’s the little piece of wirewound magic, roughly the shape of a Frisbee and about a third the size, which detects Earth’s magnetic field and sends this info to the computers on board the aircraft. Since it senses such small magnetic fields, the device is located all the way out at the end of a wingtip, as far from all the electronics on board as possible, and is held in by non-magnetic screws. Some moron had used ordinary steel screws, which were throwing the transmitter’s readings out of alignment.
      So I naively went back inside and ordered 28 non-magnetic screws.

      CONgress had inserted so many “order higher assembly” orders that do you know what showed up several weeks later? A WING. A complete-except-for-engines WING, one each, for a B52’s use of, costing over a million$, if I remember right… and they wanted my little butt to go out there and sign for it.

      I didn’t, of course. Instead, I went to the end of it, pretending to inspect it, removed the 28 screws I needed… and turned the whole wing back in as non-serviceable! (I’m still laughing about it 30 years later).

      So beware the infamous “order higher assembly.”

      Trump complained the Boeing Air-Force-One replacement program was way too costly at a $4 billion price tag. The Fake News Media jump all over him for lying say there was absolutely no basis for the assertion of $4 billion price tag. Now Pentagon contract documents obtained by The Daily Mail show Donald Trump was correct.

      The MSM caught LYING once again. Do they ever tell the truth?

      • Steve Case says:

        …“flux valve transmitter.” …
        Zat anything like the flux capacitor?
        Seriously, didn’t Lindbergh have one of those on his plane?

        • RAH says:

          LOL! I think not. Lindberg marked his wooden instrument panel with a piece of chalk to keep track of the hours of fuel used from each fuel tank. A look inside the Sprit of St. Louis.

          I have written things here critical of Lindbergh for his isolationism and idolization of Hitler prior to the attack on Pearl Harbor. Allow me to tell another side of the story about the history of the man and how he made a critical contribution to the US forces during WW II.

          The big two engine Lockheed P-38 fighter did it’s best work in the Pacific and specifically in the SW Pacific Theater (MacArthur’s territory) where it long range and ability to make it home on one engine combined with it’s great flight characteristics and firepower concentrated in the nose made it a favorite. But Charles Lindbergh after studying the specs of the aircraft and it’s Allison engines thought it could do much better and showed up there as a factory technical representative. First he spent some time with various Navy and Marine outfits flying a F4U Corsair and shot down one zero in order to “protect himself”. Then he showed up at MacArthur’s door step and it was arranged for him to visit and fly with various USAAF outfits equipped with the P-38.

          He spent most of his time with the 475th Fighter Group which was the only all P-38 group during WW II. He promised to train the pilots in techniques that would extend the combat radius of the aircraft to 600 mi. By a combination of polished flying, throttle control, and leaning the fuel mixture well below the Allison specs which turned out to do no harm to the engines, he actually got the pilots to frequently extend their range out to a 950 mi combat radius. This at a time when a 10 hour long mission in a fighter was unheard of and many thought that was impossible due to pilot endurance. (Eventually later model P-38s would fly missions of 2,400 mi round trip still using Lindberg’s techniques)

          Now this on paper may not sound like a big deal but when your a pilot over flying the Owen Stanly range where thunderheads far more dangerous than the Japanese were common and then after being in a fight have to try and make it back over those mountains it was a very big deal. It also allowed the P-38s to escort the heavy and medium bombers to targets far beyond where they had ranged before and it caught the Japanese completely by surprise.

    Alarmists, what a bunch of yoyos.

  3. In ancient days the high priests would predict all kinds of dire things telling the populace that it was all certainly going to come true unless they made offerings to the gods (through the high priests).

    A lot of people were gullible then, and a lot of people are still gullible today.

  4. griff says:

    Well the arctic is warming, at present it is showing a markedly anomalous high temp for this time of year and the arctic sea ice is very clearly declining.

    Explain why the changes in recent decades in the arctic have no effect on climate!

    • gator69 says:

      Current Arctic Sea Ice is More Extensive than Most of the past 9000 Years

      A peer-reviewed paper published in the Canadian Journal of Earth Sciences finds that Arctic sea ice extent at the end of the 20th century was more extensive than most of the past 9000 years. The paper also finds that Arctic sea ice extent was on a declining trend over the past 9000 years, but recovered beginning sometime over the past 1000 years and has been relatively stable and extensive since.

      Explain why the changes in recent decades in the arctic have no effect on climate!

      Explain why we should care.

      • Gail Combs says:

        griff, the gift that keeps on giving.

      • griff says:

        Yep, that accurately documents research showing the low ice levels in the early Holocene due to Milankovitch cycle input/effect.

        But now we have a recent severe decline in recent decades which shows a continued downward trend.

        you haven’t explained why it is doing what is is now and in the decades since the 1950s.

        • AndyG55 says:

          poor griff, it still remains TOTALLY IGNORANT about the AMO and other ocean circulation affects,

          It also remains BLATANTLY and WILFULLY IGNORANT about the El Nino that send a blob of anomalously warm air up over the Arctic.

    • Gail Combs says:

      The Arctic is like your head. It is where the most heat RADIATES to space. If the Arctic is ‘warm’ it means MORE heat is being radiated from the oceans to space. The Arctic ice acts just like a hat does in winter. It lessens the amount of head radiated.

      “open water above 78-82 north loses MORE HEAT to the sky over the entire period of the 24 hour day through increased long-wave radiation, increased evaporation, increased convection, and increased conduction than does sea ice!

      Rather than an “arctic sea ice amplification” the numbers show that – during the late melting season under today’s conditions, every square meter of open ocean north of 76-82 north LOSES more heat on a daily basis than does sea-ice-covered arctic waters under the same air conditions! “ link

      The Gulf Stream transports heat from the tropics to the Arctic where it is radiated to space.

    • RAH says:

      Time and again polar air has invaded the US and other countries of the northern hemisphere long before there was any thought of CAGW. Did you know griff that in October in Central Asia an area about twice the size of the lower 48 recorded the coldest temperatures ever for that time of year? It was because of a blocking high over the Arctic. Joe Bastardi forecast this blast of cold were going through now then! Says it’s a well known and long standing dictum in Meteorology that when that happens it will eventually end up in N. America. His father explained it to him when he was a kid. They call it the “bath tub slosh”. Cold air in one hemisphere will eventually slosh over into the other either by breaking through the Arctic high or splitting and going around it. And we are only in the beginning of this cold blast. The GFS models are forecasting temperature anomalies of -30 for the heartland and -10 for us here in Indiana running right through December and the anomalous cold of -10 to 20 below average is forecast to continue for a band of states from MI down to eastern and Central Texas right through January.

      It’s weather man and CO2 has virtually nothing to do with it!

    • Sunsettommy says:

      Wow, the resident warmist troll is back with more recent weather whining. Gee you sure have a talent at ignoring a lot of science research others here have posted, showing it is a CYCLIC behavior (Climate) that goes beyond a few years time frame.

      • griff says:

        If it is a cycle, the current cycle is massively lower than the previous 1940s cycle, and has continued low for longer and is still tending down

        • AndyG55 says:

          NO. you are WRONG AGAIN

          The effect is mainly an El Nino transient effect.

          Without that transient, the ARctic region is COOLER than in 1940, and A WHOLE LOT COOLER than any other time in the last 10,000 years apart from the LIA.

          You want the LIA.. then move to Siberia.. plenty of it up there.

          But you won’t will you, because you like the cosy warmth of your inner city “green” (lol), latte ghetto.

        • AndyG55 says:

          Arctic sea ice is now a totally insignificant 0.2 Wadhams away from the previous low in a very short record of beneficial warming since the LIA.

          Your scam is falling apart, and your desperation is showing. !

    • wert says:

      I’m gonna boil here at Arctic. It is sooooo HOT here.

      Please don’t let electricity prices skyrocket.

      P.S. polar night, no sunshine, I just beg the clouds keep temps at 270K. Clear sky means temps go down to 240K.

    The Moscow Ballet is stranded right now in Casper Wyoming, because their busses won’t start….

    Who’d a thunk the USA was colder than the former USSR?
    It’s -31°C (-23.8°F) in Casper compared to their home, where it’s a sweltering -18°C (0.4°F).

    Hi Tony,

    I was wondering, might you be aware of any studies that have been done to subtantiate or refute claims of high correlation of drought in the vicinity of wind farms:

    Gee. Not much has changed.

    Climate still changing. Scientists still puzzled.

    No, they never tell the truth.

    The government procurement procedures you mentioned look like just the kind of thing Trump would target.

    Trump said in a speech yesterday that he will impose a lifetime ban on all government employees who handle government procurement, which will prevent them from working for the companies they are dealing with while a government employee.

    Trump thought this would stop the temptation to award sweetheart deals to a company a government employee may later go to work for after returning to civilian employ.

    • RAH says:

      More fake news from the MSM. Just like the claim that the WikiLeaks documents were altered. No investigation, not evidence, just told to say anything in order to damage Trump or support the democrat talking points given them.

    Predicted low temp for Aberdeen, SD Saturday morning is 30 below, (without the wind).
    That low temp would have been 31 or 32 below before mankind caused all this weather weirding. If we spend a trillion dollars maybe we can get back to that sweet spot of 31 or 32 below. May I count on you? If you are on board, send your check to me, made out to cash…………….. LOL…. I will invest the money in ice cubes…. REALLY!!!
