Toto Agrees

Toto has never seen cool weather like this in August before. He is more used to the Dust Bowl and tornadoes.

Six years ago, Aggie joke professor Andrew Dessler said Texas would be hot and dry for the rest of the century, and bragged that Tech Tech clown Katharine Hayhoe and himself predicted it.

How did that forecast turn out?  Texas is having some of their wettest years on record.

    Time to remember Spock: In Seach of the Coming Ice Age

    • Andy DC says:

      I watched that show about the non-existent Ice Age scare of the 1970’s. It is almost funny how Dr. Schneider, who was whoring for the Ice Age scare on that show was able to make a 180 degree turn a few years later and whore for global warming.

      It just goes to show that climate change of one kind or another is an industry, a way for “scientists” to get wealthy and famous. The climate is bound to change one way or another, but no one really knows how or when.

      • Steve case says:

        It’s not that he was able to make the 180′ it’s that he got away with it.

        The climate mafia is getting away with just about anything and everything.

          In Australia, BOM (beauru of meteorology) has cooled the past 23% to make it look hotter now. They did so TWICE!

      • cdquarles says:

        Oh, we know the how, for the climate is a statistical summary of a specific location’s realized weather. Climate change follows weather changes. As we know, the weather changes variably. Some changes are not much. Some are quite impressive. Indeed, it is the when we don’t know.

        Now about the ‘man can’t change the climate’, well, yes he can; just like the rest of nature’s biological organisms do. We, like the rest of nature’s biological organisms, alter our local environment to enhance our own survival. So, the question is not can man do it, but can man do it in a way that is notable, compared to the rest of nature’s biologically active creatures. [And if you think that the rest of nature nets to zero, well, I have a piece of prime real estate for sale. ;p]

    Do you remember the video shown at the 2016 Democrat convention, showing horrific drought in the southern Plains? As proof that we need Democrats in office to fight climate change?

    The drought was in 2011, 5 years before the convention and more than 3 years after the drought completely broke. They had the utter nerve to infer the drought was current. Yet did anyone in the “investigative” media call them out for this blatant misinformation? To pose the question is to answer it!

    Here’s the BS video from the Demacratic convention. Have the barf bag ready.

    When I was in the Army I was stationed at Ft. Sam Houston and trained there at other times. Since I’ve been a truck driver I’ve came down here about 100 times. Currently it’s as Green as I’ve ever seen it for this time of year.

    These large patterns shift or not as they decide to do.
    Andy and Kati seem not to have learned anything about weather in their quest for the climate control knob.
    For Texas, this week, the weather may not fit the expectation. So what?
    Here {Wash. & Oregon} the weather is going to be hot, perhaps a bit hotter than we like. Still it is just a major ridge, and not unknown in the summer. At some point it is to be expected.

    I just checked the wind tower output, here:

    About 12 hours ago — as the heat built — the wind power bottomed.
    During this time of air conditioning need, the wind industry is nowhere to be found.
    By next Sunday there may be enough wind to get the towers off their parasitic draw.
    Fancy that. No matter, we’ve got hydro

    • Ernest Bush says:

      You are suffering from a sudden change in ENSO. Conditions are looking more like a La Niña, which is going to make for a warm September across the rest of the US. Right now everybody but the Pacific Coast is enjoying cooler than normal weather.

      A funny quote from the Weatherbug app. “Hot weather in the upper 90’s and triple digits will linger in the Desert Southwest.” For Yuma, AZ, that is a cool summer. Everybody leaves their air conditioning and goes outdoors.

    This morning 8-1-2017 5:30 am Tallahassee FL. 59 degrees. Closest street 400 feet away in the golf course

    • cdquarles says:

      Dang, that’s cold for that area this early in August. I think it bottomed out in the low 60s here, further north and also well away from the big city. Tallahassee is a good sized city. Early morning July 31st felt cooler to me, so maybe upper 50s at the house, while the official temps were in the 60s. Yeah, this front made it feel like the usual mid-August autumnal blast; so I wonder how cold that’ll be, if we get it.

      I’m out in farm country with lots of woods around. It’ll be 5F or more cooler here than in town (or the Walmart parking lot ;), for instance) most of the time. The area is also a valley with a a 500 to 700 ft ridge a few miles away. When it is humid, the ridge tops will be foggy (cloud bottoms 500 ft above the valley floor elevation) when no other places are foggy. Of course, at night, if the inversion develops, it’ll be foggy in the valley and the ridge won’t be.

    climate science has become a fairy tale?

  9. TA says:

    It’s raining here in Dustbowl territory and the temperatures are below normal for this time of year, and the hot season is just about over. We will take a summer like this every year if we could get it. The weather just keeps getting milder, while the alarmists tell us it should be getting more extreme, but it’s not happening. The predictions are not matching the observations.

  10. Buck Turgidson says:

    That “permanent drought” in Texas 5-6 years ago was about as “permanent” as the drought in the SW US. But, never mind, climate Armageddon is still here! Today’s August 2 forecast for Washington DC–90 degrees. I believe the average high for the date is 89 degrees. OMG what are we going to do?!?! This is serious stuff!! Someone call Al Gore or a fed agency with some available funding quick!

    I have a dumb question regarding climate change.

    I was recently watching your youtube video regarding the case that atmospheric pressure governs atmospheric temperatures. You were comparing Venus with Mars which both have a high percentage CO2 atmosphere. You then compared Jupiter which has a higher surface temperature than the sun … thus showing distance from the sun isn’t a factor.

    My questions are:

    -How much atmosphere in terms of cubic kilometers or thickness in kilometers would the earth need to lose in order for temperature to drop 5C or temperature low enough to trigger an ice age?

    -Could an eruption of volcano like Yellowstone or a daisy chain of Tsar-Bombas (never mind the effect of the dust) bobble the surface tension of the atmosphere enough to cause such a spill and cooling of the atmosphere?



  12. Jeff Petty says:

    We’re all looking at this from the wrong angle. Over the history of the earth CO2 has been continuously falling starting at 8000 PPM I’m dropping to a low of 180 PPM during the last glaciation. At 150 PPM the final Extinction would begin all plant life would die followed by everything else. The peak of life on Earth 65 million years ago CO2 was at around 4,000 PPM ,The land and seas were filled with a staggering number of species from the microscopic to the supermassive. We need to reinforce this point all life on Earth evolved or lived with CO2 at thousands a parts per million .
