Fake Drought News

California and the west have had numerous multi-century droughts, but experts say the recent blip was man-made and permanent. Fake news.

It is unlikely that the 75 year drought in the 13th century which drove the Anasazi out could have been prevented by a carbon tax or building a $70 billion bullet train to nowhere.

    Chaco Canyon – site of the famous glyphs that Carl Sagan used in Cosmos.
    And #climate alarmist Dr Brian Cox used in Wonders of the Universe to explain gravity

  2. Jason Calley says:

    It is common knowledge that climate scientists have access to a time machine. How else could they be able to go into the past and change the temperatures recorded? Perhaps someday they will be able to time travel into the 13th century and cure the drought for the Anasazi! We need more funding!

    • Andy DC says:

      They don’t need funding to blame the drought on deplorable straight, white males, even though none of those evil pigs existed in the area at that time.

    Mr Heller, just finished this article that you may enjoy. It expands upon what you have done and adds some teeth to it in the form of a prosecution’s case.

    Climate “Science” on Trial; The Criminal Case Against the Alarmists

    • Gator says:

      Nice analysis of the CO2 cult, too bad Joe Public has been so dumbed down by our public schools that he cannot discern science from propaganda.

      I think you will enjoy and appreciate this presentation by Dr Frank…


      Best laughs… hand held calculators match super-computer models… 12:28, climate model uncertainty (error bars)… 24:25

      “Cloud error is 114 times larger than the variable they are trying to detect”

      Dr Patrick Frank has presented his paper to 6 Journals, has had 16 reviewers, 13 of which were modelers. The count is 13 to 3 against publication, all 13 modelers voted against it. All 13 critics were incompetent in their reviews, making basic errors in comprehension.

      • Colorado Wellington says:

        Well, Joe Public has a choice and this Colorado Joe just looked up what vocativ.com published about Trump’s people at CPAC:

        Trump Camp Doubles Down On Attacks Against The Media
        The Trump administration took the stage at CPAC and wages on with its campaign to rebrand the media as lying, scheming enemies
        By James King

        Several members of President Donald Trump’s cabinet and inner circle spoke to hundreds of conservatives at this year’s Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Maryland this week and they all had generally the same message: The big, bad media lies and the press is mean to us.


        To document their narrative, the idiots posted the picture below of Stephen Bannon and Reince Priebus complaining how “the press is mean” to them. To every normal person they look like having a grand old time which they clearly did. The fake news media can’t even write a story about fake news media without fake news reporting.

        I can’t help it but I’m having a grand old time myself watching the Left’s grief. I know I’m a sinner and one day I’ll be called to account for it. I will pray for forgiveness later tonight but first I have to pour myself some Scotch and enjoy it a little while longer. It may be a guilty pleasure but these days it’s a hoot to read this crap, including stuff the proprietary high tech algorithms of vocativ.com mines from the “deep web”. :D

      • Colorado Wellington says:

        I liked the mocking laughter that broke out at 25:00 when Dr. Frank displayed the error bars on the original scale smeared from top to bottom of the graph.

        And the internal correlation of errors and correlation between different climate models at 18:44 reminded me of Tony’s analysis of the correlation of temperature adjustments with CO2 rise. I think I laughed there myself.

        Last but not least, the YouTube comment section shows persistent contributions from a presumable peer reviewer Harry Twinotter, whose brain seems an order of magnitude smaller than that of a house cat. He should get together with Ms Griff and co-write a paper debunking standard physics. There is not enough merriment in the world.

    If Trump Visits EPA, Sources Say Employees Won’t Even Show Up

    .. former EPA official told InsideEPA, “career staff will be unlikely to voluntarily attend or applaud Trump or Pruitt,” should Trump visit after the Senate confirms Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt.

    The official said “agency staff would prefer not to attend what may be a command performance with the new administrator and the new president because neither have signaled support for the agency’s mission,” according to InsideEPA…

    it goes on about how upset OUR EMPLOYEES are and their plans for rebellion.

    OHHhhhh BOOoo HOOooo.

        Or at least find they can be sent to clean up the mess the illegals created in our border parks during the summer.
        Five Federal Lands in Arizona Have Travel Warnings in Place

        …Roughly 3,500 acres of the Buenos Aires National Wildlife Refuge — about 3 percent of the 118,000-acre park — have been closed since Oct. 6, 2006, when U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service officials acknowledged a marked increase in violence along a tract of land that extends north from the border for roughly three-quarters of a mile. Federal officials say they have no plans to reopen the area.

        Elsewhere, at Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument, which shares a 32-mile stretch of the border with Mexico, visitors are warned on a federally-run website that some areas are not accessible by anyone.
        ….Dennis Godfrey, a spokesman for the Bureau of Land Management’s Arizona office, said roughly a dozen signs were posted earlier this month along the Sonoran Desert National Monument advising that travel in the area is not recommended due to “active drug and human” smuggling. The signs are not far from where a Pinal County deputy was shot and killed during a confrontation with marijuana smugglers in April and the fatal shooting of two men suspected to be drug smugglers.

        “It is a corridor for smugglers of all types,”

        If you can not fire someone you can transfer them to a ‘turkey farm’ and that sounds like just the place to sent our precious federal snowflakes.

        This is what the illegals have done to our parks that needs cleaning up.

    Regarding the Train that Diane Feinstein’s husband is building: I recently read a new budget estimate of $95b. There are 2.8 million air passengers between SF and LA per year. You could fly everyone for free at today’s pace and rate, round turn for 290 years before that train is paid for. That is two hundred and ninety years.

    • Kris Johanson says:

      Yes! And the $95billion Choo-Choo will average about 45 miles per hour as it snakes through every Congressman’s home district.

      And the operating/labor/maintenance costs per passenger will probably STILL exceed a 1st class R/T ticket on Southwest Airlines even after the 290 years….

      There are better ways to spend the money…. or better yet, not confiscate it in the first place, and let us spend it ourselves

    • Kris Johanson says:

      For anyone outside of California, Sen. Diane Feinstein’s husband owns a significant part of Tutor-Perini Construction.
      “The firms bid $985,142,530 to build the wildly anticipated first section of high speed rail track that will tie the megalopolis of Madera to the global finance center of Fresno. Do the division, and you find that the low bid came in at a mere $35 million per mile. (this is flat, sparsely populated terrain)
      Her spokesman says, “Senator Feinstein is not involved with and does not discuss any of her husband’s business decisions with him. Her husband’s holdings are his separate personal property,” (yeah sure) (from American Thinker)

  6. Psalmon says:

    No California high country rain has now reached the point that normal precip the remainder of this year will result in a record…would love to see this go off scale…

    Emergency Drought Regulations for CA still in effect BTW.

    • Ernest Bush says:

      Good chance of that since a moderate El Niño is on the way. The WUWT meter just swung past neutral into the El Niño zone. No telling what this is going to do to California, but it could be very bad.

  7. Psalmon says:

    During the drought, instead of building more surface storage, groundwater recharge assets, flood control mechanisms, maintaining levees, upgrading water treatment and maintaining same … here’s what CA is doing (in addition to high speed trains):

    When they grow up, these kids will up shorter, paying high prices for food and flooded out of their homes every 5-15 years, because their parents came to worship witchcraft.


    • Ernest Bush says:

      So the progressive plan to stop population growth in California is to starve the children to death on a diet that will deprive them of vital nutrients. If the parents of these children just sit by, we will have a lot less Democrats to deal with in future years in that state.

    • Gail Combs says:

      It also stunts the kids mentally.
      Role of red meat in the diet for children and adolescents

      The US birth rate among teens has fallen to 24.2 per 1,000 women in the 15 to 19 yrs age group. A total of 249,078 babies were born to teens in 2014.
      Reducing diet early in pregnancy stunts fetal brain development, study finds

      ….Dr. Nathanielsz noted:
      In teenage pregnancy, the developing fetus is deprived of nutrients by the needs of the growing mother…..

      “This study is a further demonstration of the importance of good maternal health and diet,” Dr. McDonald said. “It supports the view that poor diets in pregnancy can alter development of fetal organs, in this case the brain, in ways that will have lifetime effects on offspring, potentially lowering IQ and predisposing to behavioral problems.”

      Developmental programming of lifetime health has been shown to play a role in later development of obesity, diabetes and heart disease. In light of this new finding, research should focus on effects of developmental programming in the context of autism, depression, schizophrenia and other brain disorders….

      You have Brad Udall and a Jason. So they already know it has to be climate something and caused by white people driving big cars. They just need a way to rationalize their conclusions. It is Aspen after all.
