Move The Olympics To Florida

Earlier this week, the fake news New York Times said the Winter Olympics are doomed due to global warming.

Of 21 Winter Olympic Cities, Many May Soon Be Too Warm to Host the Games – The New York Times

All 50 states have snow on the ground. Perhaps they can move the Olympics to Florida?

Meanwhile, NOAA says it is the third hottest weather ever.

    I found some of Tony’s charts while reading the following …

    Slowly but surely the truth of data tampering is getting out. Thanks Tony for what you do so well.

    The NYT tells it readers how hot and how little snow there is when it’s very cold and there is snow on the ground. Just nuts.

    I’ve not been to Britton Hill at 345 feet (105 m), Florida’s highest elevation, but that seems a bit low for a giant slalom and jumping. Ice skating would be good there.
    Have been to Georgia’s Brasstown Bald at 4,783 feet (1,458 m) might do for the skiing events.
    Wife is from Atlanta so maybe we could find a few nights lodging there.

    Off Topic:
    Winds of WA, OR, & B.C. have been roaring around a Low off Vancouver Island. Seen on sites such as nullschool. Today it isn’t as nicely formed as yesterday, but it is still there.
    Great waves hit the coasts yesterday. Pushed sea water into low spots, including streets, and so on.

    “many MAY soon be too warm”

    once again a preventive excuse for their predictions.

    Considering how superreal climate change/global warming is and how obsessed and militant and cocksure this zealots are one wonders
    why they always need a backdoor as all these supersure predictions are always followed by could/should/may/probably.

    In that case they do it even twice as they have no real information to deliver.
    As they dont even bother to say how many out of the 21 will suffer
    while in fact,considering all AGW apocalyptic scenarios all 21 cities should have become too warm many years ago
    while in fact you have still tons of snow in the most southern european olympic place=sarajewo(it is snowing today and tomorrow according to google weather)

    The Olympic Committee should start planning for holding the winter olympics in Algerian Sahara – they’ve had up to 40cm ( 16″) of snow !!

    I don’t put much stock in the global surface temps as we all know how unreliable they can be. The satellite data seems to be much more reliable.

    That said, this is from Dr. Roy Spencer and their satellite record:

    2017 ended up being the 3rd warmest year in the satellite record for the globally-averaged lower troposphere, at +0.38 deg. C above the 1981-2010 average, behind 1st place 2016 with +0.51 deg. C, and 2nd place 1998 at +0.48 deg. C.

    So, perhaps this quote might be misleading as the satellite record only extends back to the 1970s, but it is still somewhat disconcerting, no?

    • RAH says:

      Not for me. What little bit of warning we have seen is much welcome. And you forgot to mention the El Ninos during that period. What would be disconcerting to me would be to see demonstrable and catastrophic effects from warming as have been predicted again and again and again over the last 30 years. But none have occurred nor seem to be starting to occur.

    • An Inquirer says:

      The satellite record goes back to 1979. That was at the tail end of a long cold spell. We would not want to return to that cold spell!
      Milder springs and autumns — along with increased CO2 levels — have enabled increased crop production. Hybrids and genetics are also responsible for gains, but there is little doubt that increased CO2 levels are responsible for 20% of current crop production. Although humans are adaptable to changed conditions, can you imagine what the food situation would be like if 20% of current crop production was taken away?

    They sat 2017 was a very hot year.

    Showing early 2018 cold winter doesn’t do anything to dispute their claim.

    I am interested in dicussion on their 2017 claim ; this is not it.

  8. An Inquirer says:

    I am quite sure that 2017 was a warm year in comparison to the 120 years of temperature years. We have been in a warming spell since the end of the Little Ice Age. I would expect temperatures to be higher as we emerge from the Little Ice Age. It seems most likely that the summer of 2017 was not hotter than the 1930s summers, but the winter months were likely milder than in the 193os.
    Meanwhile, catastrophic weather events are not increasing. Yes, we had category 4 hurricanes, but we were long overdue for Category 4 hurricanes — we are still below historical average for hurricane activity. Tornadoes are not more severe. Droughts are down a bit. Heat waves are nothing like they used to be.
    Therefore, to say that 2017 was the 3rd warmest in our era of temperature keeping is nothing alarming.

      You are forgetting about UHI.

      Cities are far larger today than in the 1930’s, have many more sources of heat and heat retaining structures, and many stations that were once truly rural are now located in the middle of enormous concrete and asphault jungles. Studies have shown that cities create concentric circles of heat, and as they grow larger they add layers, with the warmest readings found in the bullseye. I live near a major city that is often 7-10 degrees warmer than the surrounding areas, sometimes you can see snow showers turn to rain as they pass over the metrpolitan area, and then turn back to snow as the storm leaves the UHI effected area.
