Forest Fires 145 Years Ago

Forest fires were raging in Massachusetts and Tennessee – “Induced by the drought and aggravated by high winds.”

    It’s hard to believe anything could be as bad as it is today, scientists say.

      That’s because it’s worse than it’s ever been, and it’s only going to get even more horrific unless you rid yourself or that dreadful SUV and I trade in my F350 for a Tesla -yeah, that will make work easy.

      Fortunately, I live in The Empire State,
      and Emperor CoumoII says all of our
      energy will be carbon neutral at about
      the time that the awesome AOC says
      the world will end… give or take the years.

    This seems to be a very good clear concise summary of the case for man made global warming.

    Just wondering if you have ever put together a counter to this paper in a succinct format that is easily explainable to a non scientist?

      Many many examples of how various people and gov’t agencies have lied to you..

      One of the problems with that graph is they are pasting measurements on to proxies with a different time scale and error bars which are not there. That is something Mann said they would never do but he did it.
      Then they talk about 97 % on the same page, so the whole article is bogus and UNSCIENTIFIC.

    • Gator says:

      Sorry Richard, but your page is not about science, it is all about science fiction and religion. There is so much misinformation on that page, that I do our have time for a point by point rebuttal at this time. So let’s just destroy it with the basics.

      The Earth is still warming out of the coldest period in the past 9000 years. We should expect glaciers to melt, seas to rise, etc. None of this is proof of man made warming, only proof that we are in an interglacial.

      There is zero scientific proof that man has contributed anything toward global climate change. Not one peer reviewed paper. What we are witnessing is well within the bounds of natural variability and is exactly what one would expect as we continue to exit the LIA.

      So please, no more government propaganda Richard. Don’t be a science denier.

    The lying Chicken Littles got fires wrong, and got hurricanes wrong:

    The most destructive hurricanes are hitting the U.S. more often: https://www.nbcnews.com/science/environment/most-destructive-hurricanes-are-hitting-u-s-more-often-n1080326
    Climate scientists have predicted and shown that higher temperatures in the oceans and the atmosphere are creating more extreme weather and storms.

    • Eric Simpson if ‘the most destructive hurricanes’ are allegedly striking the United States more frequently [ and they are not ] , how to explain the record ‘hurricane hiatus’ from 2006 to Hurricane Harvey and Irma 2017 , when no Cat 3 – 5 landfall hurricanes hit the US ? .. There was no other such lull in the 20th and late 19th centuries when atmospheric CO2 was lower . If ‘higher temperatures ‘ [ North America experienced hotter temperatures in the 30’s ] are supposedly ‘creating more extreme weather and storms’ , why does the US landfall hurricane evidence contradict this assertion ? Moreover Hurricane Irma 2017 formed over Atlantic waters 2C below the standard threshold .. ..The 1780 hurricane season – the most destructive and deadliest on record since European colonisation of the Americas – confirms ocean water temperature is not always a factor in hurricane formation and intensity … According to Roger Pielke Jr.s research, there were approximately 14 Cat 4-5 US landfall hurricanes over the 47 years prior to 1970 , yet around half that number between 1970 – 2017 when CO2 was higher ..Once again the data does not concur with climate alarmist claims . The palaeo-tempestology research is where things get intriguing . Kam biu Liu’s article ” Palaeotempestology : The Science of Reconstructing Palaeohurricane Activity , 2008 includes a chart chronicling exceptionally catastrophic hurricane strikes along the US Gulf Coast spanning the last 4500 years . Remarkably the ‘Hyperactive Phase’ of GC super-hurricane [ SH ] activity occurred between 3800 – 1000 BP when climate scientists tell us global temperatures and the oceans were much cooler .. None registered in the 21st or late 20th centuries ….The stratigraphy results are as follows : Pearl River Marsh [ LA ] – 1 SH after 1500 BP ..7 between 3800 – 1000 BP ; Pascagoula Marsh [ MS ] – 1 SH after 1500 BP …9 between 3800 – 1000 BP ; Lake Shelby [ AL ] 0 after 1500 BP ….9 SH’s between 3800 – 1000 BP ; Western Lake [ FL ] 1 SH after 1500 BP ….11 between 3800 – 1000 BP .. …The evidence suggests the most destructive , high velocity hurricanes striking the US Gulf Coast were more frequent millennia ago and declined after 1000 BP …The Australian palaeo-tempest data is not dissimilar according to research published in Nature . The results of that study attest that northern Australia is now experiencing the weakest phase of cyclonic activity over the last 1500 [ WA ] to 500 [ Qld ] years . Why too have Australian cyclones declined in frequency and severity since 1970 according to Australian BoM data [ Check the Australian BoM cyclone chart for yourselves . Its easily accessible online ] There is no ‘climate crisis’ powering ‘unprecedented’ storms …Its a myth
