    Not sure if this will contain anything useful, but I was on the site for the State Historical Society of WI and found this link to a downloadable historical doc from the states meteorologist. It records storms and temps in the period of around 1880. I’ve not looked through it more than a perusal, but if you’ve time and patience, maybe you will find something meaningful.

    Jolly amusing, what…

    But absolutely not indicative of any trend in climate or sea ice.

    sea ice extent still at record low for this time of year…

      “sea ice extent still at record low “

      NO IT IS NOT,

      That is a manifest LIE….. and YOU KNOW IT !!

      its still I the TOP 10% of extents in the last 10,000 years.

      Its still ANOMALOUSLY HIGH after the coldest period in the whole Holocene

      Or are you going to continue to DENY CLIMATE CHANGE??

    • GW Smith says:

      Griff – The question is, so what? Are you trying to convince us that this is a trend? I think most of us here see it as wiggly lines in a natural cycle. That’s the problem with leftists, everything is a trend, a catastrophe, Armageddon, and you want us to radically change our lives. But it’s not going to happen. The sky is not falling. Relax.

      • Griff says:

        I am first of all pointing out that the posts on this blog are misleading and/or irrelevant…

        …but yes, I am also pointing out the clear downward trend in the arctic sea ice.

        I’m not a leftist.

        Science isn’t leftist or pro-catastrophe -it is just facts

          I’m still waiting for Ms Griff to show us where she corrects misleading claims from alarmists. But she cannot because she openly supports their genocide.

          These were the bad projects. As you might see the bottom of the list was climate change. This offends a lot of people, and that’s probably one of the things where people will say I shouldn’t come back, either. And I’d like to talk about that, because that’s really curious. Why is it it came up? And I’ll actually also try to get back to this because it’s probably one of the things that we’ll disagree with on the list that you wrote down.

          The reason why they came up with saying that Kyoto — or doing something more than Kyoto — is a bad deal is simply because it’s very inefficient. It’s not saying that global warming is not happening. It’s not saying that it’s not a big problem. But it’s saying that what we can do about it is very little, at a very high cost. What they basically show us, the average of all macroeconomic models, is that Kyoto, if everyone agreed, would cost about 150 billion dollars a year. That’s a substantial amount of money. That’s two to three times the global development aid that we give the Third World every year. Yet it would do very little good. All models show it will postpone warming for about six years in 2100. So the guy in Bangladesh who gets a flood in 2100 can wait until 2106. Which is a little good, but not very much good. So the idea here really is to say, well, we’ve spent a lot of money doing a little good.

          And just to give you a sense of reference, the U.N. actually estimate that for half that amount, for about 75 billion dollars a year, we could solve all major basic problems in the world. We could give clean drinking water, sanitation, basic healthcare and education to every single human being on the planet. So we have to ask ourselves, do we want to spend twice the amount on doing very little good? Or half the amount on doing an amazing amount of good? And that is really why it becomes a bad project. It’s not to say that if we had all the money in the world, we wouldn’t want to do it. But it’s to say, when we don’t, it’s just simply not our first priority.

          Ms Griff, you are a curious though not unique case:

          A self-proclaimed non-leftist that continuously spouts leftist bullshit.

          I don’t think you understand how funny you sound when you talk about “facts”.

          • Disillusioned says:

            ROTFLOL!

          • Sharpshooter says:

            Or “science”.

            Just a Soros bot?

          • arn says:

            Well-she says that she is not a leftist and that climate science is not pro catastrophy but pro facts.

            Meanwhile in the real world:
            Manhattan will be flooded by 2018.
            Ice Bears will go extinct.
            Arctic Ice will dissappear.
            Hurricanes will increase massivly.

            This is what climate scientists say – and they use exactly the very same fearporn scenarios
            they usee during the ice age scare.

            Nothing of this ever happened.

            Bold predictions.All wrong=No science.

        • paul courtney says:

          Griff: And you spent years pointing out that posts at WUWT were (so you say) misleading and/or irrelevant. Your work at diminishing the credibility of that blog worked so well (HA!), you’ve moved here to take down this blog. Based on that experience, I say: Please keep coming here, it’ll soon be the second most popular blog on the ‘net.

          • Colorado Wellington says:

            Tony is fortunate to have retained Ms Griff’s free services at this blog.

            History suggests that if a blog doesn’t acquire a twit troll naturally it should go looking for one.

          • arn says:

            Well-i think she was first here.
            Than she moved to WUWT((was a beautiful time here.Noone missed her)
            and now she’s back.

          • AndyG55 says:

            griff is at a stage where she cannot diminish her credibility any further,

            unless by digging through the bottom of the septic tank.

        • Sharpshooter says:

          You wouldn’t know what science is the best day you’ve ever had.

          You may not be a leftist, but you’re certainly devoid of honesty. and integrity.

          Try this: point out what is wrong bout these points in your contention. THAT’S SCIENCE.

          Otherwise, go troll somewhere else.

    2018 and we have cricket at the north pole. The Arctic has been repeatedly forecast to be ice free; 2000, 2012, 2013, 2014, yet it’s 2018 and there is plenty of ice in the arctic.

    The (weak) conjecture made that rising CO2 levels from man-made sources causes catastrophic warming, made many years ago, is fundamentally wrong. The catastrophic warming isn’t happening.

    No number of glib, wordy, nit-picking, innumerate arguments made in the face of obvious and easily observable facts will give the (weak) conjecture life. Massive, Arctic melting, catastrophic warming isn’t happening. There is no crisis. There is no catastrophe.
