We're Buried In Snow & Freezing! GLOBAL WARMING!

Errr...I mean 'climate crisis', of course...

Al Gore: "Bitter cold’ is ‘exactly what we should expect from the climate crisis’"

confused

Former Vice President Al Gore has weighed in on the record cold and snow in the U.S. “It’s bitter cold in parts of the US, but climate scientist Dr. Michael Mann explains that’s exactly what we should expect from the climate crisis,” Gore wrote on January 4 on Twitter.

confused

Gore linked to one of his organizations’ articles on the brutal winter weather written by Climategate professor Michael Mann: "The Climate Reality Project: A ‘PERFECT STORM’: EXTREME WINTER WEATHER, BITTER COLD, AND CLIMATE CHANGE"
In the Gore touted article, Mann linked the cold and “lots of snow” to “climate change.”

confused

Gore’s Oscar-winning documentary An Inconvenient Truth did not warn of record cold and increasing snowfalls as a consequence of man-made global warming. And as recently as 2009, Gore was hyping the lack of snow as evidence for man-made global warming. Source: “Gore Reports Snow and Ice Across the World Vanishing Quickly.”

confused

Other climate activists warned of less cold and snow as well.

confused

But as the snow piled up, the climate change claims were adjusted and cold and snow was added to the list of things caused by “global warming.” See: Warmists Wheel Out “Record Cold Due To Global Warming” Argument Again
In 2010, Gore claimed “increased heavy snowfalls are completely consistent with… man-made global warming.”

confused

Predictions of less snow and less severe winters were hammered into the public by global warming scientists. But once that predictions failed to come true, the opposite of what they predicted instead became—what they expected.
If “climate change” is causing record cold and snow, then it would stand to reason that Gore is suggesting that if the U.S. had ratified the UN’s Kyoto Protocol treaty on “global warming” back in the 1990’s —
THE WINTER OF 2018 WOILD BE WARMER?

confused

Reality Check: But scientists are not buying the claims of Gore and Mann and others linking the record cold and snow to “global warming.”

Hi Mic..wave

Well...here the weather's gone mad!!

Hurricanes on the coast with waves of about 10 metres high..

Tornados...

And lots and lots of snow...one meter in some areas and temperatures of minus 10C..

And now ...return home from holidays ...people have been stuck on motorways for about 17 hours without food and drink and having to sleep in their car with their kids.
doh
They're just not equipped for such snow falls. The worst in years!!


Luckily I'm alright here near the beach. Quiet warm in fact for January
cool
wave Dani!

Thirty foot (10 m) waves?!
wow
Surfers must be showing up from all over the world!
head banger

Small amounts of snow in areas not accustomed to snow.
I saw it happen in the U.S. South.
a couple inches of snow.
Cities were shut down.
People who knew nothing about driving on snow could NOT deal with it.
Scared hell outta me...and I'm fearless!

If you had an iota of understanding about global climate, you would know that brief, local occurrences of weather are not an indicator of long-term trends. Please learn the difference between weather and climate. The scientific community has been warning about global warming for decades and it continues to do so unwaveringly. For most, that is catastrophic. For you, increased desertification means that you will have yet more sand in which to bury your head.

NASA: "Multiple studies published in peer-reviewed scientific journals show that 97 percent or more of actively publishing climate scientists agree: Climate-warming trends over the past century are extremely likely due to human activities. In addition, most of the leading scientific organizations worldwide have issued public statements endorsing this position."
Yeah...that's the problem when people are not used to driving in the snow. They've also been told to use chains. Many accidents!

Over 2000 trapped on the Madrid motorway all night last night.

And here...to the extreme ...people on the beach and swimming even!

High waves? No good for surfing as it was blowing a hurricane and there was a storm in northern Spain.

Tiempo loco!! Global warming ? Ummm..uh oh
Agreed, comp!
Folks confuse 'weather' with 'climate'.
I get it.

That's the point.
Any and all weather news items are now blamed on 'global warming'/'climate change'/'climate crisis'.
In effect using weather to bolster claims for climate crisis.
I've even heard it suggested that global warming may have been responsible for a bridge collapse.
Yes. Really.
confused

It becomes tedious.
And, as noted in the OP, quite often self-contradictory.
And like the boy who cried wolf, people ignore the whole subject.
yawn blah blah
It's a pr gaff; they're discrediting their own cause.

BTW - Some claim that compared to earlier times, we're now at near starvation levels of CO2 to support plant photosynthesis.
dunno
Search - CO2 Starvation.

Interesting link, comp.

Note that the included graph represents 1" c change over 140 years, with variations over the years.
It's been pointed out that what's really remarkable about it is the extreme CONSISTENCY of the planet's temp, given the great number of variables (known & unknown) affecting it.

cowboy
According to this, the point is moot...



...we're all gonna be dead in a few years.

Extreme heat wave in Australia 47 degrees,
Never before seen this wave wave wave

At least you can dress against the cold but what to do when it gets that hot scary really wave
Why Guy McPherson's asserts we'll be dead in a few years...



"We do not like what we are seeing. Absolutely...Do...Not...Like."

Note that this is occurring in one of the most remote plces on Earth - the East Siberian Arctic Shelf.

Dr. Shakova does not ccategorically claim this is, or is not, due to human activity.
She does state the situation deserves more study.

As noted in a comment on one of Dr. Shakova's vids, 'It may be that two previously obscure Russian scientists have become the most important persons in human history.'

cowboy
hmmm

47 c.......writing.....to f....
117 f!

daydreamThat sounds pretty great 'bout now, BC! cool

cowboy
Dr. Shakhova gives a more detailed discourse on East Siberian Arctic Shelf methane...



And yes.
She really said it was TWENTY KILOMETERS (12 miles) thick!
Twice.
wow

Pleasant dreams, y'all!

So. Dani.
You say surfers wouldn't be interested because you have a hurricane...huge waves AND lotsa wind.

You just gotta get the right surfers...



wow
DAYUM!!!

Great blog mate wave
You might even start a trend with idiots starting their own blogs rather than posting on this one.

Talk about standing on the shoulders of Giants. cheers

Personally I believe in the Science of Climate change, I also believe the ruling elite or 1% are using it to cash in with tax's, charges and government levies where ever they can. This overwhelming greed is a separate issue to the science.

Of course the open minded flat earth chem trail smokin people will disagree and tell us science itself is perverted and not to be trusted.

Shame on you Brian Cox scold
I get my science from Morgan Freeman thank you very Much beer
blues

Damned right, non.
You've nailed the worst case scenario.
It is altogether plausible that Global Warming is a real concern.
AND
It's being used as a tool by the greedy to pick the pocket of every person on the planet via a de facto Global Fire Tax.
Talk 'bout a government/bankster's wet dream!
daydream love

Global Warming & Greed are NOT mutually exclusive.
Fact is, there could hardly be a more tantalizing & lucrative marriage made in Hell devil

Hey Conrad,
I love that one. I wonder who is fooling whom.laugh
cheers
Catfoot
Sorry Miclee,
I guess I'm the idiot around here.laugh

I prepare my blogs before the time and schedule it for a particular day when I post it without looking at other blogs beforehand. I had a hectic day yesterday with that other blog and did not get a chance to get to this one. Actually, it was Jim's first blog on the snow that put me onto my blog. I did not mean to offend you.sad flower

I guess i need an idiot from time to time to remind me that I'm an idiot.doh
cheers
No offense taken, cat! cheers
None at all.

The blogs compliment one another.
Same subject, different perspectives.

About Watts Up With That? News and commentary on puzzling things in life, nature, science, weather, climate change, technology, and recent news by Anthony Watts

This science news site feature original content from myself as well as several contributors
seaworthy
And the survey says.....http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2018/01/10/report-485-scientific-papers-published-in-2017-undermine-supposed-consensus-on-climate-change/
An excerpt from the link in sea's comment above roll eyes
...

"The articles, in fact, are not written by uninformed 'climate deniers', but by serious scientists who believe that the true nature of scientific inquiry is not to bow to some proposed 'dogma'—especially where significant ideological, political and economic interests are at play—but to see where the facts lead on their own."

See also the discussion of the secular-religious dogmatic aspects of climate science/policy at cat's 'Global Warming' blog.

Thanks, sea cheers
