BEX ALERT - Poll shows giant gap between what public, scientists think

Scientists are far less worried about genetically modified food, pesticide use and nuclear power than is the general public, according to matching polls of both the general public and the country's largest general science organization. Scientists were more certain that global warming is caused by man, evolution is real, overpopulation is a danger and mandatory vaccination against childhood diseases is needed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Left unsaid is that these scientists are PAID to "research" nuclear power, global warming, vaccines, etc. And note the very clever way of tangling up skepticism about those with creationism.

Political 'Weather' Battle Heats Up - and So Am I

One of the most disheartening shifts I have observed over the last 20 years is witnessing science fall prey to politics. What has me further disturbed is the tactics being used. For those of you who have been taught the method of "critical thinking" or you are a political-science major or perhaps a historical buff, you have been aware for some time of methods used for military and covert affairs. Then I would say you are also aware such methods are being used on our own populations. It is not just the United States who is involved, but the EU, India, Australia, Japan, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates and the list goes on.

Obviously when you want to give people the feeling that they are personally vulnerable to climate change it would make sense to point to some natural disaster such as the 2013/14 floods and suggest that they were caused by climate change, and that there will be more of this as a result of climate change. If you want to suggest that there is strong support from other people for action on climate change, it would be a cunning plan to tell them that other people overwhelmingly support such action.

Blizzard snowfall may have broken local record

Some 30 inches of snow fell on the Newburyport area during the Blizzard of 2015, according to Ray Whitley, observer for the National Weather Service.

Taking measurements each morning at 6 a.m., Whitley said that 13 inches fell between Monday and Tuesday morning, and 17 inches of new snow fell between Tuesday and Wednesday.

That would make it — unofficially — the biggest recorded snowfall in greater Newburyport. It surpasses the famous Blizzard of 1978 by a little less than 2 inches.

It was a snow storm for the record books in Worcester when the blizzard of 2015 dropped 34.5 inches of snow, surpassing the previous record of 33 inches from the April Fool's Day storm in 1997.

Everything in the city was buried, from front steps, to trash cans, even small cars looked like snow banks. The snow was so high in some places, some people couldn't get out of their front doors.

Lord Christopher Monckton - Climate Change is Really a Basis for Elite Control

Lord Christopher Monckton believes there is climate change, but he does not believe man has anything to do with it. Lord Monckton says science will ultimately back up that claim. Why the recent push to do something about climate change that is also called global warming? Lord Monckton says, “I think they are panicking because they know that this process . . . cannot be kept going for very much longer because . . . it’s been 25 years since the UN produces a report saying we were all doomed, and since then, the rate of warming has been half of what they predicted and well below their entire range of estimates.” Also, former Vice President Al Gore predicted the polar ice caps would be melted by now. Just the opposite has happened, as Lord Monckton points out, “If you took the Arctic and the Antarctic together, global sea ice was the greatest it’s been throughout the 35 years of the satellite era. It is greater than it has ever been before.”

New England pummeled by Juno as storm dumps THIRTY INCHES of snow and causes flooding in Massachusetts, but NYC is spared

The worst hit state was Massachusetts, which endured up to a huge 33.1 inches of snow in the town of Lunenburg, with wind gusts topping 75mph.

In Boston, Juno dumped 26 inches of the white stuff on many streets, with 30mph overnight winds. In coastal areas of the state, flooding closed roads.

And there is likely to be even more snow throughout the day - with Gov Charlie Baker saying some parts of the state could see a further 10 inches.

This will potentially make Juno one of the top snowstorms in Massachusetts of all time, Gov Baker said during a press conference on Tuesday morning.

The USDA Economic Research Service, in their report Food Price Outlook, 2015 stated "Beef and veal prices continued to rise, increasing 18.7 percent year-over-year. Prices remain high, as the U.S. cattle inventory is currently at a historical low. While recent rains in the Southern Plains and Southwest have improved pasture conditions somewhat, the drought still continues in these regions. Most retail beef prices, on average, are also at record highs, even after adjusting for inflation. ERS predicts beef and veal prices will increase 5.0 to 6.0 percent in 2015."

New England pummeled by Juno as storm dumps two feet of snow and causes flooding in Massachusetts, but New York City is spared

Millions of people in New York City hunkered down on Monday evening as they prepared for a potentially 'historic' blizzard.

However, the predicted storm failed to live up to its hype - prompting many to criticize Mayor Bill de Blasio for his 'over-reaction'.

Indeed, de Blasio had earlier banned cars in the city, closed a 60-mile stretch of the New York Thruway and halted buses, subways and trains.

But elsewhere along the East Coast, it was a different story - with heavy snow, high winds and coastal floods recorded across New England on Tuesday.

Winter Storm Juno heaped more than a foot of snow on parts of Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and New York state.

The worst hit area was Massachusetts, which endured up to a huge 26.2 inches of snow in the town of Shrewsbury, with wind gusts topping 75mph.

Millions of people across the Northeast were told to stay home from work and school Tuesday, even as forecasters revised predictions that had originally called for record-breaking amounts of snow in some of America's biggest cities. The blizzard had originally been predicted to bring between 2 and 3 feet of snow to an area stretching from northern New Jersey to southern Maine, along with hurricane-force winds. However, by early Tuesday, most forecasters said that only New England would bear the brunt of the storm, and even then the snowfall would not be as bad as expected.

MOTHER JONES CLIMATE BEX - Attention GOP Presidential Candidates: Winter Does Not Disprove Global Warming

Pathetic carbonazi propaganda redacted.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Back on March 20, 2000, the Carbonazis were proclaiming that "Snowfalls are now a thing of the past." (UK Independent banner headline).

The fact is that human influence in climate is miniscule compared to solar output, which is at a 100-year low. But everyone who signed onto the hoax of human-caused global warming is trying to salvage their reputations in the face of a new Maunder Minimum and with it, a new "Little Ice age."

The long term trend for the last 18 years has been ever more severe winters. All the "adjusted" data from temperature sensors located in air conditioning outflows and next to trash incinerators cannot offset what the people can experience with their own eyes and skin.

It is time for Mother Jones to admit that they, like so many other corporate media outlets, were victims of a hoax, and stop trying to raise on a busted flush, while they still have some credibility left!

Will Winter Storm Juno Be a Historic Blizzard?

Millions in the Northeast are stocking up and hunkering down for Winter Storm Juno, a potentially crippling blizzard. But before Juno's parent low pressure system even reached the Atlantic coast, many began wondering aloud: Will Winter Storm Juno be historic?

"Historic" is not a precisely defined term, but generally meteorologists reserve it for weather events of exceptional strength or magnitude. A hallmark of such events is their ability to break all-time records. For instance, Winter Storm Nemo broke the all-time 24-hour snowfall record for the entire state of Connecticut when it dumped 36 inches of snow near Ansonia on Feb. 8-9, 2013.

Climategate, the sequel: How we are STILL being tricked with flawed data on global warming

Although it has been emerging for seven years or more, one of the most extraordinary scandals of our time has never hit the headlines. Yet another little example of it lately caught my eye when, in the wake of those excited claims that 2014 was “the hottest year on record”, I saw the headline on a climate blog: “Massive tampering with temperatures in South America”. The evidence on Notalotofpeopleknowthat, uncovered by Paul Homewood, was indeed striking.

Puzzled by those “2014 hottest ever” claims, which were led by the most quoted of all the five official global temperature records – Nasa’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies (Giss) – Homewood examined a place in the world where Giss was showing temperatures to have risen faster than almost anywhere else: a large chunk of South America stretching from Brazil to Paraguay.

Raising on a busted flush - NOAA, NASA say 2014 warmest year on record

For the third time in a decade, the globe sizzled to the hottest year on record, federal scientists announced Friday.

Both the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and NASA calculated that in 2014 the world had its hottest year in 135 years of record-keeping. Earlier, the Japanese weather agency and an independent group out of University of California Berkeley also measured 2014 as the hottest on record.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

From the same government that assured you Saddam had nuclear weapons and that unemployment is only 6% (with more than 90 million Americans unable to find work) comes this latest exhortation to ignore the record cold and snow sweeping the globe and believe as you are told to believe that the world is warming and it is all your fault, and you will atone by paying carbon taxes !


NASA has already backed off this claim, saying that the analysis of the temperature data has a margin of error so large that there is only a 38% chance the claim that 2014 was the hottest year on record is true!

The Remote Sensing System satellite data doesn't support the claim that 2014 is the hottest year on record. It came in at sixth place since the satellite was launched.

Chinese scientists doing very finely detailed measures of isotopes trapped in giant clam shells have reconstructed a detailed record of Earth's climate that confirms that the Roman and Medieval warm periods were indeed far warmer than Earth is today, and oddly enough, were also periods of lower CO2 content in the atmosphere. Contrary to the carbonazis' claims of impending doom if the Earth gets warmer, the Roman and Medieval warm periods were times of immense fertility and productivity, allowing humans freed from the scramble to find food to create the flowering of the Roman civilization, with its art and engineering, then later the Renaissance.

But the various agencies and scientists who are funded to "prove" global warming don't want to give the money back, and so even as record cold arrives, and the March 20, 2000 UK Guardian prediction that "Snowfalls are now just a thing of the past" is once again proven false, they will go on screaming global warming, the sun has nothing to do with climate, global warming creates snowstorms, and all the other lies used to trick you out of your money by a desperately broke government.

Forget That Warm Weather Talk: U.S. Is About to Get Cold

The prospects of a January thaw are dropping right off the map. Even the chances that the U.S. East Coast will hold on to some above-normal temperatures into the last week of the month are fading like cheap paint in the bright sun.

Instead of displaying the gold and orange of milder weather, the maps have turned blue across the Midwest, which may be the same color your lips will be when the temperature drops. For the East, the outlook is for seasonal readings, and given that it’s January, you can color those cold, too.

“The big story this week is that our expected January thaw next week has been obliterated, and that the models keep getting colder and colder in general, starting next week through the end of January,” said Todd Crawford, a meteorologist with WSI in Andover, Massachusetts.

Blizzard Drops Feet of Snow Across Middle East

Snow fell in parts of the Middle East on Wednesday as a powerful winter storm swept through the region, killing two Syrian refugees in Lebanon and forcing thousands who have fled their country’s civil war to huddle for warmth in tents in refugee camps.

In Syria, the guns fell silent as snow fell in the cities of Damascus and Aleppo and governmentwarplanes remained on the ground because of bad visibility.

In Syria, snow blanketed Qassioun Mountain, which overlooks the capital, Damascus. The snowfall also brought traffic to a near standstill in the city and the Education Ministry shuttered schools and universities

Changing the Global Warming Metaphor

To make the problems as small as possible, we should reduce the size of mankind–reduce the global human population–by as much as we can, say to 50% of today’s population.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If you really feel that way, I invite you to do your part and jump off of the top of the nearest tall building. Because I am sick and tired of all these people who think the world is over-populated, but demand that other people die or go without children to solve that they see as a problem.

In any event, the human population is actually in decline.

And human-caused global warming is a get-rich-quick scheme without scientific foundation.

Ice storm, treacherous roads keep Hawaii summit closed

When snow falls on the summit of Mauna Kea on Hawaii's Big Island, it usually means a rare opportunity for Hawaii residents to build snowmen and have snowball fights.

An ice storm has kept the summit inaccessible for more than a week, the longest known period the area has been closed because of winter weather.

As Lake Michigan's scenic ice expands, danger grows for curious onlookers

Subfreezing temperatures are making their mark on West Michigan's shore, encasing once-sandy beaches and picturesque piers under sheets of ice. Perhaps it's even more attractive this time of year. But it's still treacherous, authorities say.

Lake Michigan's basin is 18.96 percent ice covered through Sunday, Jan. 11, according to data provided by the National Weather Service in Grand Rapids. It's about on pace with a 20 percent average for this time of year, though still under the 22.46 percent covered at this point a year ago.

Now also is about the time when curiosity gets the best of onlookers.

"The icebergs definitely are forming now," said Sgt. Cal Keuning with the Ottawa County Sheriff's Marine Unit, "but please enjoy them from the beach and don't venture out there."

New Claim: Dinosaur Farts May Have Caused Prehistoric Global Warming

Sauropod dinosaurs that roamed the planet 150 million years ago may have released more methane gas into the atmosphere than all modern sources combined. Although methane does not stay in the atmosphere as long as carbon dioxide, it is 20 times more effective at trapping heat than CO2. “A simple mathematical model suggests that the microbes living in sauropod dinosaurs may have produced enough methane to have an important effect on the Mesozoic climate,” Dr. Wilkinson told The Telegraph.

Learn from climate change’s instructive past

We know, because they often say so, that those who think catastrophic global warming is probable and perhaps imminent are exemplary empiricists. They say those who disagree with them are “climate change deniers” disrespectful of science.

Actually, however, something about which everyone can agree is that of course the climate is changing — it always is. And if climate Cassandras are as conscientious as they claim to be about weighing evidence, how do they accommodate historical evidence of enormously consequential episodes of climate change not produced by human activity? Before wagering vast wealth and curtailments of liberty on correcting the climate, two recent books should be considered.
