Settled Science In New Mexico

The science is clear, and New Mexico and the Southwest are in the bull’s eye when it comes to the devastating effects of global warming.

New Mexico senator Tom Udall

I took these pictures of global warming devastation in Los Alamos this morning.  The snow was too deep for the dogs, so I have to leave them behind – for the first time ever.

    Roy Spencer now has a 40-year satellite measuring stick.

    How does that change the trend lines?

  2. TimA says:

    The Udall’s are carpetbaggers of the worst kind….they descended here because of the large population of brain dead Permacrats in (mostly northern)
    New Mexico and now Colorado…(pot anyone?)

    Oh, the agony! /s

    (actually, beautiful pics. Contrast was well-handled,too.)

    I bet the pooches were upset. All that snow and being denied the fun of playing in it. In Germany our Cocker loved to just burrow under the stuff and then pop up. But there weren’t any cactus under the snow in Germany.

  5. DH says:

    Does that snow kill the cacti?

    The warmest are so smug with there comments – we need to fight them everyday until our message starts to gain some traction. Here is a perfect example; today the Washington Times has the following story: “Climatologist counters climate-disaster predictions with sea-level report”…here is the first comment from RedProcessor (classic smug leftist):

    In the last 15 yrs (and over *two republican* and one democratic administration) not a single research study has been published in a major science journal that refutes global warming. There are two possible explanations.
    (1) There is a global conspiracy to suppress the truth that only deniers are aware of.
    (2) Deniers’ claims are unsupported by scientific evidence.
    Which possibility seems more likely?

    I bet he knows nothing about what real physicists and scientists outside the “Climate Science” racket are publishing. Its called “Pal” review for a reason!

      “Its called “Pal” review for a reason!”


      But, make no mistake. Those kinds of pals are only your friend as long as you stay in line with The Consensus™ – get your paper accepted and get your grant money. Fall out of line (try and follow the scientific method) and you will be thrown under the bus in a heartbeat.)

      He wins the argument who gets to pose the question.

    It looks like you got hit with the WARMING HOLE that causes cooling verses the Cooling Hole that causes warming. All neatly explained here, if you can follow the logic:

    The bizarre ‘warming hole’ that defies climate change in the US by causing some areas to get COLDER instead of hotter

      “The research explains why some areas are defying global warming theories”

      “The research explains why…”

      • Anon says:

        Exactly… gobbledygook … and back to this again:

        If, rather than trying to glean evidence from observable reality, a person seems more intent on forcing reality into the categories of his or her system, then you’re dealing with an ideologue. If evidence supporting a theory is trumpeted loudly and repeatedly, and evidence that may refute it is ignored repeatedly, then it’s an ideology, not a principled position. If every bit of data, no matter how contrary, is taken as evidence of the truth of the theory, then it’s ideology, not science.

          “Of course, one pays dearly for this low-rent home: the price is abdication of one’s own reason, conscience, and responsibility, for an essential aspect of this ideology is the consignment of reason and conscience to a higher authority.”

            I almost fell over when I read it the first time.

            If you are interested, here is Jordan Peterson at Harvard in 1996, describing the same affliction, via an account of Alexander Solzhenitsyn on a prison train headed to Siberia. The “comrade” he was with would not give up his ideology, even when being transported to his death by the very system he helped create: (~10 mins)

    • arn says:

      In fact 99.999%+++ of the universe is a warming hole.
      If you travel several light years in the right direction you may find a light hour or two without a warming hole and then again nothing for years and as soon as we leave the galaxy 25.000 light years of warming hole is the minimum to travel.

      Warming holes are not just global but universal
      and in case you find some poor man frozen to death
      the cause won’t be some irresponsible energy policies
      only educated idiots can pay for to feed their “philantrophic” egos,but
      warming holes are the reason.
      (warming holes,by some strange coiincidence,do not exist inside the appartements of gated communities)

    • Colorado Wellington says:

      “The Southeast has been consistently showing cooler temperatures in the winter while the Midwest has consistently shown cooler temperatures during the summer.

      This has been happening since the mid-20th century.”

      So they say it’s been happening since CO2 levels were around 315 ppmv.

      No wonder climate change professors choke their girlfriends and drag them by the hair around the place.

    • Gator says:

      I am much more concerned about the holes than I am about any warming and/or cooling.

      • Colorado Wellington says:

        ‘holes are dangerous. ?

        I once fell in a snow hole under a spruce on my cross country skis. It took me a while to get out because I fell in head first.

        As a teenager, I helped several alpine skiing beginners who ventured off slopes and fell into such holes. I remember one of them who may had been in a deep snow hole under a tree for a long time and probably would never have crawled out without help.

      • Louis Hooffstetter says:

        I’m pretty sure it’s ‘A’ holes that are creating the warming holes.

  9. Mark Needham says:

    I would like to order please, 1 Warming Hole.

  10. Was the snow cold or warm? I bet it was warm because of global warming.

    How did you decide which one to purchase?

    Meanwhile the much promised el-Nino is in no hurry to show-up.

    No current post on the Arctic here so I thought I would put this here. It looks like there is finally a push to start building ships for the US Navy capable of transiting Arctic ice. It is a travesty that the largest Navy on earth has no ice breakers or warships suitable for Arctic transit other than submarines. All the Ice Breakers in the US Armed Forces belong to the Coast Guard. So perhaps we shall start seeing the US Navy start a program for building surface ships and warships capable of dealing with Arctic conditions.

    Looks to me Tony that you missed a prime opportunity to break out the cross country skis.

  15. Psalmon says:

    Apparently all that snow and warmer temperatures are drying up the Rio Grande.

    • rah says:

      I would prefer if that river were a ragging torrent 24/7.

      • Psalmon says:

        Don’t count on it…if you follow the RG to its source, it’s a never ending series of dams and farms. Like most rivers, the RG is used right to the ocean.

        Which really gets to the heart of the modern environmental movement. They are happy to allow environmental destruction as long as it supports their bigger aim.

        Climate Change means they embrace windmills and allow slaughter of endangered species.

        Forest fires’ real cause doesn’t matter as long as it fuels the Climate Change argument.

        In California they plan to build tunnels to divert the Sacramento River to LA…They will turn the Sacramento Delta into a dead salt marsh…which can and WILL be blamed on Sea Level Rise.

        Environmental Destruction is now their currency to buy political power.

        • Colorado Wellington says:

          The “bigger aim” has been concisely and neatly described 170 years ago, long before any of the current sort were born.

          … the Manifesto was later recognised as one of the world’s most influential political documents. It presents an analytical approach to the class struggle (historical and then-present) and the conflicts of capitalism and the capitalist mode of production, rather than a prediction of communism’s potential future forms.

          And since UNESCO registered the Manifesto in its Memory of the World Programme the future sort will never be in doubt where to find their foundational document.

    BTW we hit 53 F here in my part of Hoosierland yesterday. Gas prices even out by the interstate were $1.99 per gallon of regular. I was out and about doing a little shopping. Before Christmas I picked up a couple of nice remote weather stations for gifts at Menards for $26.99. The thing included the outside sensor. The sensor connected to the main unit by Bluetooth and doubled as an alarm clock using an “atomic” clock. Even had radio and sea sounds to go to sleep by. When I went in Menards yesterday they had the same unit priced at $79.99.
