As their theory implodes, global warmists raise their hysterics

Goodbye to all that

Goodbye to all that

Now we’re in for it: NYC will be flooded by 2050, temperatures will soar, blah blah blah. Fortunately, Mayor DeBlasio has a plan to cut emissions 80%, and friends who, when hired, can implement that plan, so Gothamites can live in a beautiful bubble of Eden, spared from the doom awaiting the rest of the earth.

If you care to, check the link and count the number of absolute falsehoods parroted as truth by the reporter. Especially the one about the rise in sea level already “experienced” by NYC. FWIW’s own expert on all matters hydrological, (and surveying)  Mike Finkbeiner, has actually studied, measured and debunked that claim (sorry, Mike, I’m rushing this morning and will have to find your links later). The point is, these people are watching their wonderful hoax, thirty years in the making, collapse around them, so they’re panicking.

That’s a good sign; the end (of global warming) is near.

    Global Warming is just the Trojan horse by which carbon taxes and global government are brought. And how dare you protest, the science is settled! Climate denier!

    Don’t worry, everyone will be buying carbon tax credits from Tesla so the planet will be fine.

    Thanks Elon!

    ‘The fiddling with temperature data is the biggest science scandal ever’

    “When future generations look back on the global-warming scare of the past 30 years, nothing will shock them more than the extent to which the official temperature records – on which the entire panic ultimately rested – were systematically “adjusted” to show the Earth as having warmed much more than the actual data justified.

    Two weeks ago, under the headline “How we are being tricked by flawed data on global warming”, I wrote about Paul Homewood, who, on his Notalotofpeopleknowthat blog, had checked the published temperature graphs for three weather stations in Paraguay against the temperatures that had originally been recorded. In each instance, the actual trend of 60 years of data had been dramatically reversed, so that a cooling trend was changed to one that showed a marked warming.
    . . .
    Following my last article, Homewood checked a swathe of other South American weather stations around the original three. In each case he found the same suspicious one-way “adjustments”. First these were made by the US government’s Global Historical Climate Network (GHCN). They were then amplified by two of the main official surface records, the Goddard Institute for Space Studies (Giss) and the National Climate Data Center (NCDC), which use the warming trends to estimate temperatures across the vast regions of the Earth where no measurements are taken. Yet these are the very records on which scientists and politicians rely for their belief in “global warming”.

    Homewood has now turned his attention to the weather stations across much of the Arctic, between Canada (51 degrees W) and the heart of Siberia (87 degrees E). Again, in nearly every case, the same one-way adjustments have been made, to show warming up to 1 degree C or more higher than was indicated by the data that was actually recorded. This has surprised no one more than Traust Jonsson, who was long in charge of climate research for the Iceland met office (and with whom Homewood has been in touch). Jonsson was amazed to see how the new version completely “disappears” Iceland’s “sea ice years” around 1970, when a period of extreme cooling almost devastated his country’s economy.

    ‘Time Magazine’s Jeffrey Kluger Writes What Might Possibly be the Stupidest Article About Climate Ever – Climate Change Causes Volcanoes’

    “. . . Iceland has always been a natural lab for studying climate change. It may be spared some of the punishment hot, dry places like the American southwest get, but when it comes to glacier melt, few places are hit harder. About 10% of the island nation’s surface area is covered by about 300 different glaciers—and they’re losing an estimated 11 billion tons of ice per year. Not only is that damaging Icelandic habitats and contributing to the global rise in sea levels, it is also—oddly—causing the entire island to rise. And that’s where the trouble begins.


    Here’s the money quote:

    “As the glaciers melt, the pressure on the underlying rocks decreases,” Compton said in an e-mail to TIME. “Rocks at very high temperatures may stay in their solid phase if the pressure is high enough. As you reduce the pressure, you effectively lower the melting temperature.” The result is a softer, more molten subsurface, which increases the amount of eruptive material lying around and makes it easier for more deeply buried magma chambers to escape their confinement and blow the whole mess through the surface.

    “High heat content at lower pressure creates an environment prone to melting these rising mantle rocks, which provides magma to the volcanic systems,” says Arizona geoscientist Richard Bennett, another co-author. . . .”

    “Iceland is rising. Or, more precisely, the island’s “ice” part is shrinking, causing the “land” part to rebound from the Earth’s crust—a process that’s happening at a pace much faster than scientists had previously realized. In fact, its glaciers are melting so swiftly that parts of Iceland are rising as much as 1.4 inches (35mm) a year.

    That’s according to research just published (paywall) by a team led by scientists from the University of Arizona. The study is the first to directly link the Earth’s accelerating uplift with global warming’s glacial thaw. As this process intensifies, the scientists warn, it risks upping the frequency of volcanic eruptions.

    What’s new here isn’t the science itself, exactly. Glaciers are so heavy that they weigh down the earth that they cover. A while back, geologists discovered that where huge chunks of ice are thinning, the earth beneath them starts rebounding. And evidence suggests that higher latitudes are warming faster than the global average.

    What scientists haven’t understood, though, is whether the ground’s bounce-back comes from glaciers that melted long ago—or whether this is due to recent climate change.

    In Iceland, at least, global warming is the culprit, according to Richard Bennett, a UA associate professor of geosciences. He and his team figured this out by attaching GPS receivers to rocks all over Iceland, and then calculating how far the rocks traveled over time. . . .”

  6. Well thanks CF for the new warmista target on my back.

    Executive Summary – The bedrock northeast coastline is subsiding into mildly rising oceans at the rate of 1 millemeter per year. My study covered Manhattan from the establishment of Boro Datum in 1811 to 2011, and found an 8 inch subsidence. My finding was historical.

    Various studies confirmed the finding.

    In sandy aquifer areas like Long Island and the Mid-Atlantic Coastal Plain, due to water withdrawals, the subsidence rate is triple the bedrock rate.

    NOAA tide stations are not normally linked to the International Spatial Reference Frame, and therefore, looking just a tide data does not identify the “land is sinking” problem. It all looks like rising water levels.

    A local warm spell over Greenland is causing accelerated ice-melting there. As the land rebounds upward, our coastline at the other end of the sea-saw is gently dipped lower in the ocean level.

    Who would have ever guessed that volcanos cause land to rise, even without the presence of AGW ice-melt to “start” the whole chain of events?

    “. . . The ground under the small fishing villages in this area around Naples is in constant slow movement because of volcanic activity deep below the surface. In Pozzuoli, a town just north of the city, the walls of the terra-cotta villages are falling down. The earth has risen and dipped more than 11 feet in the last decade, destroying roads, a hospital, and thousands of homes. Small tremors are common. . . .”
