Warning Signs Climate Fraud Continues Unabated

Written by Tony Heller

Right before they got slammed with cold and three feet of snow upstate, the fake news New York Times announced the early spring due to your SUV.

As with almost everything climate experts say, they are lying. Prior to 1950, early spring temperatures in the US were much warmer. The four warmest March 23 dates in the US were 1910, 1907, 1939 and 1928.

./ghcn.exe US.txt date=0323 threshf=70 > US_0323_70F.csv

On this date in 1910, two-thirds of US stations were over seventy degrees, and 80 degree temperatures occurred all the way up to northern Minnesota and North Dakota.

./ghcn.exe US.txt date=03231910 threshf=70 > US_03231910_70F.csv

Northern Minnesota is forecast to reach the low 40’s today, about 40 degrees cooler than 1910.

The suicide of expertise: Glenn Reynolds

Written by Glenn Harlan Reynolds

According to Foreign Affairs magazine, Americans reject the advice of experts so as “to insulate their fragile egos from ever being told they’re wrong.” That’s in support of a book by Tom Nichols called The Death of Expertise, which essentially advances that thesis.

Well, it’s certainly true that the “experts” don’t have the kind of authority that they possessed in the decade or two following World War II. Back then, the experts had given us vaccines, antibiotics, jet airplanes, nuclear power and space flight. The idea that they might really know best seemed pretty plausible.

LHC: Five new particles hold clues to sub-atomic glue

Written by Pallab Ghosh

Baryons collidingImage copyright: EQUINOX GRAPHICS/SCIENCE PHOTO LIBRARY

The Large Hadron Collider has discovered new sub-atomic particles that could help to explain how the centres of atoms are held together. The particles are all different forms of the so-called Omega-c baryon, whose existence was confirmed in 1994.

Physicists had always believed the various types existed but had not been able to detect them – until now. The discovery will shed light on the operation of the “strong force”, which glues the insides of atoms. The centres of atoms consist of particles called neutrons and protons. They in turn are made up of smaller particles called quarks, which have unusual names.

Rosetta saw cliffs collapse on comet

The comet visited by the Rosetta spacecraft is constantly being re-shaped, sometimes in dramatic fashion. It witnessed the collapse of entire cliffs at two locations on Comet 67P, events that were probably driven by exposure to sunlight.

The European probe documented the widespread breakdown of materials on the surface during nearly two years orbiting the 4km-wide body. Details were presented at the Lunar and Planetary Science Conference (LPSC).

Groundbreaking study on dangers of ‘microplastics’ may be ‘Fake News’

Written by Martin Enserink

GOTLAND, SWEDEN—It’s a cold, dreary day in early March, and Josefin Sundin is standing in one of the two aquarium rooms at the Ar Research Station on a remote corner of Gotland, a Swedish island in the Baltic Sea. “This is where it all happened,” she says, while gazing around as if searching for fresh clues. Her colleague and friend Fredrik Jutfelt takes cellphone pictures.

Electric cars pose little threat to oil demand

Written by Cuneyt Kazokoglu

The popular claim that a surge in electric cars will hasten the arrival of peak oil demand is undermined by the data. High quality global journalism requires investment.

The majority of the world’s cars will remain powered by petrol, also commonly known as gasoline, for at least the next two decades and this will drive oil demand, according to data from Facts Global Energy.

Oops… ‘scientists’ overlooked effect of ‘dead zones’ on coral reefs

Written by Steve Milloy

Key quotes:

… they suspected it was caused by a dead zone–a low-oxygen area that snuffs out marine life–rather than by ocean warming or acidification…

The team thinks that such dead zones may be common in the tropics but have gone largely unreported, simply because scientists never looked…

Based on our analyses, we think dead zones may be underreported by an order of magnitude…

NASA’s Mars Rover May Finally Be Breaking Down

Written by Andrew Follett

NASA has found two small breaks in one wheel on the Curiosity Mars, marking the first step in the rover’s long decline.

Curiosity has breaks in the rover’s left middle wheel that appear to have been caused by simple wear and tear. It has driven a total of 9.9 miles since the mission’s August 2012 landing on Mars. The rover only needs to go another 3.7 miles to complete its mission.

Sperm swimming technique ‘all down to simple maths’

How an individual sperm swims, against all the odds, through fluid to reach the fallopian tubes has been revealed – and it’s all about rhythm. Researchers from the UK and Japan found that the head and tail movements of sperm made patterns similar to the fields that form around magnets.

And these help to propel sperm towards the female egg. Knowing why some sperm succeed and others fail could help treat male infertility, the researchers said.

NASA : Where “Common Sense” Means “Fraud”

Written by Tony Heller

NASA has a “Common Sense Climate Index” which shows the capital of Iceland super-hot after the year 2000.

Data.GISS: Common Sense Climate Index

They accomplished this by massively cooling the past to get rid of the pre-1960 warmth.

Data.GISS: GISS Surface Temperature Analysis

NASA did exactly the same thing at the capital of Greenland – massively cooled the past to make the present appear warm.

Data.GISS: Common Sense Climate Index

Before data tampering, the 1940’s was warmer in Greenland than the present.

Data.GISS: GISS Surface Temperature Analysis

The warmth of that period was very real. Glaciers were rapidly disappearing in 1922, which NASA now shows (after “common sense” data tampering) as cold in that region.

07 Apr 1923 – NORTH POLE MELTING

Same story in 1940. It was very warm and glaciers were “nearing a catastrophe.” NASA cooled Reykjavik 1940 temperatures by 2C, to make the inconvenient warmth disappear.

06 May 1940 – Greenland’s Climate Becoming Milder

Greenland is very cold. Their capital is buried in deep snow.

Webcam – Benne

It is -34C in the interior of the ice sheet.

Greenland is blowing away all records for ice gain this year.

Greenland Ice Sheet Surface Mass Budget: DMI

Even as all of the fake news and fake government science agencies claim Greenland is rapidly melting.

This fraud didn’t happen by accident. During Obama’s first year in office, “independent” government agencies got together and made plans to make the 1940’s warmth disappear.

After the November 2016 election, government climate scientists were frantically trying to protect data, which it seems safe to assume means destroy evidence of fraud during the Obama administration.

How Greenhouse Gas Tricksters Persist Despite Trump

Written by Joseph E Postma

As President Trump leads the charge in dismantling fake news and the ‘hoax’ of global warming we examine how the most climate-skeptical body of scientists are still being reviled and misrepresented.

At Jeff Condon’s site “the Air Vent”, he plays the “Challenge PSI” game following after Anthony Watts and Roy Spencer.  Apparently this is the fun thing to do, even though it continues to support PSI’s position and defeat the challengers. [PSI is Principia Scientific International, a hub for applied scientists and engineers who point to flaws in the greenhouse gas theory]. Will Trump’s administration take note?

Study: Recent Severe British Floods ‘Not Unprecedented’

Written by Neil Macdonald and Heather Sangster

Scientists at Department of Geography and Planning, University of Liverpool studying past historical floods determine nothing exceptional in recent severe British flooding events.

Abstract. The last decade has witnessed severe flooding across much of the globe, but have these floods really been exceptional? Globally, relatively few instrumental river flow series extend beyond 50 years, with short records presenting significant challenges in determining flood risk from high-magnitude floods.
