“The rate of global heat accumulation is equivalent to about 4 Hiroshima bomb detonations per second”
- John Cook
I prepared this special map to show how global warming has accumulated one trillion atomic bombs worth of excess heat over the past 30 years, due to a 1:20,000 increase in a harmless, essential trace gas.
10-Day Temperature Outlook for the Conterminous U.S.
Good thing Sweden is acting now.
Passengers departing from Swedish airports will be hit with an extra charge of between 60 and 400 kronor ($7 and $48) depending on where they are flying to. The charge will apply to everyone except flight crews, passengers stopping without changing planes and babies being carried in a guardian’s arms.
Here at the ranch, we have been running 20F below average for weeks now. Snowed again yesterday, and no warm up in sight.
Looks more like a nuclear winter.
Your chart shows that it is over 8 days, not 30 years, and shows mostly cooling, not warming. I hope your point was to show that climate change is a joke. Even if I am reading this incorrectly, 30 years is not even a blip in time for the earth’s history, and you have to compare your results to the rest of earth’s history. The results on their own don’t mean anything if worse results occured in the past. That’s the problem with climate change, it is always changing and has been much cooler and much warmer. You can’t cherry pick your data and timelines to prove your point, even though that seems like all the scare mongers do.
The graph’s point is: AGW is a fraud. It supports this assessment by contrasting a climate alarmist’s claim with reality. Mr. Cook asserts man is profoundly warming the earth (the equivalent of a nuclear holocaust). The actual temperature anomaly suggests the opposite (nuclear winter).
At the risk of insulting you, the climate community often refers to temperature anomalies, rather than simple temperature readings. Anomalies reveal at a glance how the temperature for a certain time period compares with a reference period. The graph shows the 10 day outlook for much of N. America is significantly colder than the reference period. Over most of the rest of continent, the outlook approximates the historic “norm”.
Your concern about cherry picking will be alleviated after you tune in to this website for a couple months. Tony weaves together–one thread at a time–temperature data, ice data, storm information, articles and other information to devastate AGW. So, pls return again & again.
I hope your point was to show that climate change is a joke.
Always lead with that thought, and you will fit in just fine here.
To understand why “Climate Change” and “Global Warming” have become political issues, simply follow the money. When ANY politician climbs on-board the climate “issue” they aren’t doing it for their health, they’re doing it for their wealth…Al Gore Jr. as THE leading example with his now-defunct “Carbon Credit Exchange.” And, it’s the very same for universities getting FREE grant money to study climate imaginary problems, teaching the sheer lunacy of “carbon sequestration.” The core of it all is what is a “Carbon Credit.” It’s the planting of an equivalent number of trees to absorb all the excess carbon you or, an industry generate. Dear God, the Insanity of the Scamsters!
