It's probably for the best

Quote:
A growing group of women concerned about climate change are choosing not to reproduce. Called BirthStrikers, they agree to not bear children “due to the severity of the ecological crisis and the current inaction of governing forces in the face of this existential threat.”
I fail to see the problem.

Well, that goes against the narrative...

Key Greenland glacier growing again after shrinking for years, NASA study shows

Quote:
A major Greenland glacier that was one of the fastest shrinking ice and snow masses on Earth is growing again, a new NASA study finds.

The Jakobshavn glacier around 2012 was retreating about 1.8 miles and thinning nearly 130 feet annually. But it started growing again at about the same rate in the past two years, according to a study in Monday’s Nature Geoscience...
So, could this simply be natural variation?

Quote:
...Study authors and outside scientists think this is temporary.
'Course not...

But wait!

Quote:
A natural cyclical cooling of North Atlantic waters likely caused the glacier to reverse course, said study lead author Ala Khazendar, a NASA glaciologist on the Oceans Melting Greenland (OMG) project. Khazendar and colleagues say this coincides with a flip of the North Atlantic Oscillation — a natural and temporary cooling and warming of parts of the ocean that is like a distant cousin to El Nino in the Pacific.
Bold mine.

So, it could just be a response to a natural cycle.

Quote:
While this is “good news” on a temporary basis, this is bad news on the long term because it tells scientists that ocean temperature is a bigger player in glacier retreats and advances than previously thought, said NASA climate scientist Josh Willis, a study co-author.
'Course not...

We didn't know how big a factor ocean temperature was in glacier retreats & advances but we're sure this is only temporary relief.

Quote:
“In the long run we’ll probably have to raise our predictions of sea level rise again,” Willis said.
Bold mine.

No, really. Temporary only...

Quote:
What’s happening, Joughin said, is “to a large extent, a temporary blip. Downturns do occur in the stock market, but overall the long term trajectory is up. This is really the same thing.”
I'm sorry. Have I missed something? What empirical evidence do you have to connect stock market prices (a man made phenomenon) and GAST (Ma Nature)?

Do these idiots even read the crap they spew?

Winter is Coming – Super Grand Solar Minimum

Quote:
Professor Valentina Zharkova gave a presentation of her Climate and the Solar Magnetic Field hypothesis at the Global Warming Policy Foundation in October, 2018.

Zharkova models solar sunspot and magnetic activity. Her models have run at a 93% accuracy and her findings suggest a Super Grand Solar Minimum could begin in 2020.
Bold mine.

93% accurate, huh?

That's ~100% more accurate than the warmist's models, no?

The climate alarmists are keeping poor people in the dark — literally

From the article:

Quote:
These comments may set alarmists’ hair on fire, because religious-like conviction does not tolerate conflicting evidence. Unrealized forecasts should induce modesty rather than intensify certainty.

We should responsibly develop the resources we have been blessed with because we owe it to our countrymen in the here and now. Also, economic growth can finance science and adaptation, which offer the best opportunity for breakthroughs in innovative technology and environmental protection.

These issues are particularly stark for developing countries.

WE’RE ALL GONNA DIE

Quote:
Canada is warming up twice as fast as the rest of the world and that warming is “effectively irreversible,” a new scientific report from Environment and Climate Change Canada says….
I MEAN, IT SURE IS LUCKY WE FINDING THIS OUT FROM FEDERAL GOVERNMENT SCIENTISTS ON THE SAME DAY THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT IS IMPOSING CARBON TAXES ON DENIER PROVINCES.
Curious how a single landmass has twice the warming of the balance of the planet, no? If that observation in itself doesns't set off warning bells then maybe, just perhaps, you're part of the problem...

Comment gold.

The so-called science of claiming that a 1 degree Celsius warming is twice 0.5 degree warming is pretty embarrassing. We need to start from absolute zero at -273 C and then provide reference temperatures. So a rise from 10.5 C to 11.0 C would be a rise of .0018%.

Just a little history lesson.

The Little Ice Age – Back to the Future

Quote:
Extreme scientists and politicians warn we will suffer catastrophic climate change if the earth’s average temperature rises 2.7°F above the Little Ice Age average. They claim we are in a climate crisis because average temperature has already warmed by 1.5°F since 1850 AD. Guided by climate fear, politicians fund whacky engineering schemes to shade the earth with mirrors or aerosols to lower temperatures. But the cooler Little Ice Age endured a much more disastrous climate.

Ross McKitrick: Hold the panic: Canada just warmed 1.7 degrees and … thrived

Saying Canada warmed twice as fast as the whole planet doesn’t prove anything.

Kids just won't know what snow is!

Blizzard warnings issued across central U.S. as region faces "bomb cyclone"

Quote:
A storm impacting Rockies and Plains states has met the scientific definition of what's commonly known as a "bomb cyclone." It's the second such blast to hit the region in less than a month. Hundreds of flights have been canceled and some roads in the region are becoming impassable or accidents have already occurred.
More:

Quote:
The National Weather Service said up to 2.5 feet of snow could fall in parts of eastern South Dakota and southwestern Minnesota.
Two and a half feet of Globull Warming, in April!!!

Further:

Quote:
Watertown, South Dakota, is in the bullseye of the storm, Diaz reports, where the area could get up to 24 inches of snow — on top of the 56 inches that has already fallen this year, nearly triple the norm.
All bold mine.

Ran across this Facebook post by a guy who helped install monitoring stations in Inuvik and Yellowknife. A good read.

Is anyone surprised?

The CBC JUST PUT OUT A LEAKED REPORT SAYING THE NORTH IS WARMING AT TEMPERTURES 2.5 TIMES GREATER THAN THE REST OF THE WORLD.... THIS IS WHAT I PERSONALLY EXPERIENCED FOR THE LAST 20 YEARS IN THE ARCTIC...

The air quality monitoring stations that were installed after 2000 are a point of faulty data collection. The person who installed them (i helped them find locations for the ones in Inuvik and Yellowknife) were placed in locations to to get 'hits' ... when I asked the person in charge why he wanted them in locations where it would obvious give high readings he told me they want 'hits' so they can get more funding.

I thought that was bad science so I would only approve a site that was average air quality for the town of Inuvik by a soccer pitch and no buildings or traffic near it... since they are going to use that single point to represent the surrounding 500 km I felt that was best... the person complained to the SAO and Mayor ... but I held firm on my assertion that the location away from direct sources of pollution was a better location to collect a representative sample. Since I moved away they moved the air quality station next to the boiler end on one of the larger buildings in Inuvik (Midnight Sun Rec Center) obviously to get 'hits' ... the air quality monitoring station in Yellowknife (see pictures) is next to one of the larger sewage lift stations (think pig barn) in the city... I would get calls a couple times a year from environment Canada asking about a high numbers...LOL! so the data from any of these sources are suspect... not because I don't believe data... quite the opposite ... I collect and analyze data professionally... there are serious problems when the data is collected to get 'hits'... the report 'leaked' by CBC has been fixed with 20 years of manipulated data... we are being miss-lead.

If this is happening on Canadas Arctic... where else has the data collected been placed so the monitoring system will get 'hits'?
