Latest Climate News From The “RIght-Wing Press”

Early in life I had noticed that no event is ever correctly reported in a newspaper.

  • George Orwell

Fox News and the Washington Examiner are pushing some rather spectacular climate idiocy these days. Worse garbage than the New York Times and CNN.

The next ‘cold’ war: America may be missing the boat in the Arctic

Meanwhile, back in the real world.  Arctic sea ice volume is the highest in the last thirteen years, and melt during the last two years was the slowest on record.

    Conversion of “Warmers”.
    If my family is an example, it can’t be done.
    And having a single-degree in geophysics has no meaning whatsoever. That one has written on the subject since 2008 and addressed forums in a number of countries has no consequence. In a couple of cities, I’ve been one of the speakers on a platform that included Ian Plimer. Now, he is fun.
    But the reason for this note is that I’ve come up with a rule.
    Don’t try to explain how climate really works to a “warmer” between May 1st and October 1st. There could be a “hot” day that will destroy all of your reasoned explanations. So, only try it in the winter months.
    Another point is more of a question than a rule.
    Back in the 1970s, there was a cult called “Moonies”, and parents found people who specialized in de-programming such cultists.
    Should there be de-programmers for “Warmers”?

    • Colorado Wellington says:

      I’m sorry, Bob, but explaining weather and climate to a global warming cultist doesn’t work even during winter, at least not in Colorado. We have too many sudden temperature swings at the foot of the mountains. I’ve heard a neighbor’s daughter scream at the top of her lungs at her skeptic dad:

      “So why do we have frigging 70 degrees in February?!”

      The intensity of her reaction suggested they’ve had some discussions before and I quickly removed myself from their icy yard.

    • Johansen says:

      CAGW is now “the church”. I’m so glad the Pope has made that clear! Their side is now official religious dogma. Griff and Terak are now officially “the church”. I’m so glad that’s finally clear… Now every time you hear a Warmunist speaking, just picture the Pope

      • Gator says:

        I’m waiting for the alarmists to attack and demean the Pope’s stance on climate change, because of his belief in the creation. Surely anyone who is a creationist could never be correct about anything scientific.

      • terak says:

        Denialist science is extremely scarce. Not much better than “creation-science”, which is the result of cultish brainwashing.

        • Gator says:

          Ms Terak, you are the only science denier here. Let’s try again…

          1- List all climate forcings, order them from most to least effectual, and then quantify them all.

          2- Please provide even one peer reviewed paper that refutes natural variability as the cause of recent, or any, global climate changes.

          There is nothing unusual or unprecedented about our climate, or how we got here. For 4,500,000,000 years climates have always changed, naturally. This means there has been a set precedent, and the burden of proof falls on natural climate change deniers like yourself.

          I’m still waiting…

        • Johansen says:

          The strict Creationists are Muslims, so I guess your “cultish brainwashing” slam is correct. The Pope is apparently into Theistic Evolution, so once again you’re side is pretty much defending the Catholic Church. I’m so glad that’s clear, now. Whenever your side speaks, I just automatically picture the Pope

        • AndyG55 says:

          “which is the result of cultish brainwashing”

          The ONLY cultish brain-washing has been the incessant propaganda from the AGW agenda.

          People like you don’t have the knowledge or the will-power to resist.

          You are GULLIBLE and BRAIN-HOSED, so much so that whatever was in your cranium has now turned into a putrid, sickly, stinking, green sludge.

        • sunsettommy says:

          You are into troll zone, since there are THOUSANDS of published papers with a skeptical viewpoint.

          Your ignorance and stupidity is well seen here.

          “Denialist science is extremely scarce. Not much better than “creation-science”, which is the result of cultish brainwashing.”

          It is very interesting you make this comparison, because the belief in AGW and evolution has many similarities.
          Scientists who find fault with the evolutionary THEORY are treated just like AGW THEORY dissenters, they are bullied, humiliated, and ignored by the madding crowd of mainstream climate science academia.

          It may surprise you though that there are a large number of honest scientists who find that belief in an intelligent designer does not require blind faith like that needed by evolution, and coincidently A-CO2-GW.
          To an honest humble person, the Creator’s qualities are clearly evident in the things made, it is far from blind faith.
          The only proof of evolution that has been observed is in fact no proof at all and is purely adaption. What Junk evolutionary scientists don’t realise is that so called “Junk DNA” is what governs adaptation and it was encoded in the genome by an extremely intelligent mind who foresaw future environmental stresses the creature would experience, and provided a means to adjust.

          In a few recent studies, atheist academics were found to be lacking in the superlative human quality, empathy. A person without sufficient empathy will walk over anyone who gets in their way. They mistakenly believe that their view is more important than anyone else and that empathy is an impediment and thorn in the side of evolutionary survival of the fittest and the advancement of the “human” race.

          Going by the behaviour of certain climate scientists over the years, I would put money on them being blind rock-hearted atheists.

      • Bob Hoye says:

        Yesterday, Reuters headlined;
        “Pope: Populism is not the solution.”

        Beginning in 1989 with the fall of the Berlin a popular uprising took down Communism.

        Socialism was no longer convincing to the masses, so the control freaks moved to environmentalism. Now, with CAGW, they are in pig-heaven.

        However, another popular uprising is making headway.

      • arn says:

        The day this guy was voted i instantly said that it will no longer be just a rhetorical question wether the pope is catholic
        because he is part of the nazi escape agents called jesuits
        and it was a jesuit who founded the bilderbergers with the help of a dutch nazi royalty(the same guy who founded tge WWF(the first organisation to use ‘extinct’ bear photos to impress people)

        When Bella Dodd left the US communist party sho wrote that she met with several high ranked bishops in the vatican who were in fact communists and not catholic.

      • gregole says:

        …”emergencies of human-induced climate change…

        Huh?

    • arn says:

      Conversion of warmers??

      Expecting someone to acceppt that his religion is the wrong religion
      is a mission impossible.
      People are so stupid that they are not even willing to acceppt that islam
      is NOT the religion of peace though it is not even their religion
      and though they did never ever gave a shit about islam until it was declared “religion of peace” 15 years ago in the(like always) USA.
      Since then it was hammered into their brain via TV and newspapers
      by their priests(anchomen,politicians,entertainers) and it turned into their believe.
      Now they care more about islam than about their own religion and
      they ignore all the facts:eg islam means subjugation,
      the tens of millions of people killed by muslims since the end of WW2(only the US military industrial complex can rival them and they need superhightech weapons and professional fighters,instead of average muslim joes and guns and knifes)
      all the atrocities committed in north india and the fact that there would be a huge genocide if india would remove their huge army from there.

  2. Gator says:

    The change has been so sweeping…

    Really? It appears disaster was averted when they turned the A/C back on, on June 24th, 1988. Last I checked it still gets hot in the Summer, cold in the Winter, and we still have lots of ice at both poles. Not what I would call sweeping changes.

  3. --B-- says:

    “hansen and other doomsayers were right”

    What the hell? They weren’t even close. They weren’t even on the same planet let alone the ballpark. With very significant adjustments they could not even get to Hansen’s ‘take drastic action now and it will be like this’ best case. With China and India included basically less than no action was taken. The result over the past 30 years should have been far worse than his worse case if he was correct.

  4. paul courtney says:

    I’ve noticed a couple other articles on FOX website that are nothing more than alarmist press releases. Nevertheless, CAGW press releases are utterly ineffectual, and have been for awhile. This is what’s known as “failure to communicate” (Cool Hand Luke again?!). Climate communicators like our friend Griff should take a lesson from the current immigration debate. If you want climate action (whatever that means, the more vague the more better), you have to find a way to get the network reporters to set their collective hair on fire for at least a few days.

    At the risk of being taken seriously, I suggest the alarmists find some children, rub some dirt on ’em, and put them in dog kennel cages for the photo shoot. The trick is to attribute the children’s condition to CAGW, and blame Trump. Of course, those skeptical reporters at our top news bureaus would never fall for that, would they?

  5. Russell Cook says:

    Such is one of the myths the AGWers have about Fox, that the entire organization is 24/7 climate denial. But for years, deep within Fox’s non-news corporate pages, they stated one of their goals was to be carbon neutral. Hannity may openly question AGW, but while Bill O’Reilly was there, he was basically pro-AGW. Shep Smith seems to be pro-AGW to this day, and a remarkable number of Fox guest pundits have displayed what looks like either a total ignorance about the depth of scientist opposition to AGW, or that they clearly have not looked into the topic beyond a superficial level.

  6. Kent Clizbe says:

    There is no such thing as “Right” or “Left.”

    What is it that differentiates the “Right” from the “Left?”

    War? Obama and his minions enthusiastically overthrew foreign governments, embroiled us in wars in 20+ countries, aggressively violated foreign borders, American and international law to assassinate by drone thousands of people, including US citizens.

    Immigration? Look at the open border Republicans joining with the PC-Progs in a slobber-fest over the “family separation” of illegals at our border.

    Global Warming? A quintessential PC-Prog issue–their goal is to destroy America’s economy–but the fake “conservatives” love government too. And what better ploy to get the camel’s nose under our tent that “climate” regulations?

    Fox News is as much a faker as is CNN.

    They are both denizens of the swamp, doing what’s best for the swamp–not for Normal America.

    Fox used a con man as their main Counter-terrorism, intelligence, and CIA “expert guest” for 13 years. Wayne Simmons, now in prison, was a fraud. Fox was informed of his fraudulent claims. They continued to use him. So did the Washington Times, and many other “conservative” organizations.

    While the PC-Progs are terrible, the fake “conservative” outlets are even worse.

    You’ve gotta watch out for all of them. Snakes in the grass. They’re populated by opportunists who will slit your throat for their own cause–whatever it is.

    • arn says:

      The trojan horses are always more dangerous than the open enemies.
      Because the latter will keep you cautious but a fake friend will pat your back until he puts the knife in.

      Malcolm X knew that very well more than 50 years ago in an interview with austin ckarke
      “In america there is no such thing as democrat and republican anymore.
      Only conservative and liberals.
      And the white liberal is the worst enemy to america and the black people.
      The liberal elements of whites are those who have perfected the art selling themselves to the negroe.”

      You’ll see the real colors of fake friends only when it is getting real-than they’ll show how unriliable they are.

  7. John of Cloverdale, WA, Australia says:

    “The emergence of a new ocean did not fit into the budget,” she (Heather Conley – an Arctic expert) said. “Now we are behind.”
    Of course, you are behind, luv! The Russians have 41 icebreakers with at least 8 more on the way. The current U.S. fleet has only two.

    • Mr GrimNasty says:

      If they smash enough ships around the Arctic ice pack they can probably make it ‘ice free’ faster than even nature intended.

  8. Brian D says:

    The weather pattern for the rest of the month is good for slow rates of extent/volume loss. Greenland should see more snow across the south, and even more across the N with this pattern, as well.

    Changing entrenched warmers minds will never happen. Globalists only care because of the money involved, and they will get their way one day, just not today. Socialism/Communism are spreading like a plague across the earth, and it will have to get bad before people start to wake up and realize what the hell happened to them.

    The white horse of deception.
    The red horse takes peace from the earth.
    The black horse brings widespread poverty.
    The pale horse brings all manner of ills, as hell fills with it corpses.

    Only the hope of Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour, and His return will bring this hell on earth to its end. Amen!

    And for those that scoff at this, wait until you get on the flip side, then you will know! And it will be too late.

    Now I’ll step away from the pulpit and just say that I think the ice will do well this year and have a minimum between 5.0-5.5 with MASIE.

  9. CO2isLife says:

    Here is some news that will never be published in the MSM…or peer review journal.

    Michael Mann’s Hockey Stick Rules out CO2 as Cause of Global Warming
    https://co2islife.wordpress.com/2018/06/19/michael-manns-hockey-stick-rules-out-co2-as-cause-of-global-warming/

  10. Gator says:

    It’s worse than we thought!

    Meanwhile, a CO2 shortage in the U.K. is threatening beer supply, as well as other carbonated beverages amid the World Cup festivities.

    https://www.google.com/amp/www.foxnews.com/food-drink/2018/06/20/world-cup-fans-facing-looming-beer-shortage-across-europe.amp.html

    This alarmist CO2 smear job has now caused a real catastrophe, a beer shortage. How many soccer fans will now be forced to watch these tedious matches sober?

    The horror!

  11. Xellos says:

    Tony,
    I’m arguing with colleagues about AGW. My position is basically “sometimes it goes up, sometimes it goes down, there’s a gazillion factors involved and since one of them is money, it’s impossible to trust any research”. When I pointed out your graphs, I naturally got attacks on the source, i.e. you – supposedly, if a site is called Real Climate Science, that indisputably proves whatever it says is false…
    Anyway, I have two questions:
    1. Can I get sources for some plots that don’t have them listed, e.g. article 1, article 2?
    2. How to go about debunking global measurements like this? A common retort to local cold examples is “but the global mean is increasing!”.
    Thanks.

  12. Nutation_discombobulation says:

    It’s laughable now thinking of Hansen’s and Gore’s drowning predictions for the likes of Manhattan. But the disinformation perpetrated by the media is no laughing matter, when they will give coverage to alarmists scare mongering studies, but will ignore papers that later refute these studies as junk.

    For instance, all the noise surrounding accelerating sea level rise eg.
    http://www.foxnews.com/science/2018/03/05/new-nasa-study-finds-dramatic-acceleration-in-sea-level-rise.html

    But when you actually look at the data, there isn’t any acceleration at all, in fact since mid 2015 there has been zero mean global rise.

    • neal s says:

      I am confident that griff and/or terak will be along shortly to explain to us all, why this particular result is not to be trusted but must be adjusted until it confesses to the consensus of accelerating sea level rise. They will explain that we are just not smart enough to realize that the oceans are actually getting deeper, and if it were not for that we would already be drowning.

    • gregole says:

      Wasn’t Manhattan suppose to be underwater by 2000?

    Good thing is that global warming will no longer be europe’s biggest problem in just a few years from now.

    • Johansen says:

      I think Europe is headed for some big changes…. and a lot of human suffering.

      • Griff says:

        I think Europe will be just fine. Germany is a pleasant and law abiding place to visit (I went twice last year) and there is no sign of society falling apart. It is a sight less troubled than the Us with gun and drug crime and you can walk the streets with little fear of assault, etc

  14. John F. Hultquist says:

    Doreen Pollack fled Chicago cold for Phoenix more than two decades ago, but in the past 30 years night time summer heat has increased almost 1.8 degrees there. She said when the power goes out, it gets unbearable, adding: “Be careful what you ask for.”

    Since when has summer heat in Phoenix not been unbearable?
    Doreen might learn something about Arizona by asking some of the tribal natives of the region. These folks have been there longer than electricity and air conditioning. And they seem to function then, and now, with neither.
    She should go back to the Windy City.

    • tonyheller says:

      This week in 1974 Phoenix was in the middle of 19 consecutive days over 110 degrees, a record which has never been matched again. That was the peak year of the ice age scare.

    • gregole says:

      Weather here is Phoenix is just fine. It was a high of 109 F today, and we bar-be-qued outdoors. It was 108 F on my garden thermometer while I started the coals.

      It was a lovely evening as the sun went down; we dipped in and out of the pool as we gossiped about work and friends and looked at cell phone pics of the grandkids.

      Dogs frolicked in the garden hunting lizards Phoenix is heaven on earth.

      In my patio adjacent to my pool area and pergola, I have a permanent outdoor but covered art studio for my sculpting and pattern-making hobby/business. I work out there year round except when it’s cold in the winter or raining too hard.

      Just ask our gracious host about how to live in Phoenix… don’t get too attached to AC and learn to bear the heat. Your body will do the rest. Wear a hat – broad brimmed, wear a long sleeve light-weight loose shirt with an under shirt. You’ll sweat and your clothes and body will become a kind of air conditioner. Drink a lot of water. A lot.

      And there are no bugs. Almost no bugs. It’s too hot. This place is heaven on earth.
