NFL SNOW CANCELATION ?

Jets-Bills game will not be played in Buffalo

The Bills will eventually play the New York Jets, but that game won't happen in Buffalo.

With the city buried under an outrageous four feet of snow, NFL spokesman Michael Signora announced Thursday that the league is preparing to relocate the contest.

"Due to public safety concerns in light of the ongoing weather emergency in Western New York, Sunday's Jets-Bills game will not be played in Buffalo," Signora said in a statement. "We are in the process of rescheduling and relocating the game as part of Week 12. We will provide additional information as soon as possible.

NASA simulation shows a year in the life of Earth’s CO2

NASA scientists have created an ultra-high-resolution computer model that gives staggering views of how carbon dioxide swirls around Mother Earth — and the heavy toll it takes on her.

Earlier this week, the space agency released a new simulation created with this model, called GEOS-5, that shows clouds of carbon dioxide, a key driver of global warming, drifting far from their original sources — turning local greenhouse gases into global problems.

Webmaster's Commentary: 


"So you just forget about all that snow and ice and just look at this computer model that NASA (those smart guys who made Challenger, Columbia, the Mars Polar Lander, the Mars Climate Observer and all that other cool stuff) made for us! See how the evil, evil, EVIL Carbon Dioxide is turning our our blue planet ugly orange! Ugly, ugly, ugly! And if you are a loyal American you will ignore the snow and ice, worship the simulation, and pay your carbon taxes!" -- Official White Horse Souse

(Ahem)

< This is yet another computer simulation produced at heavy cost to the taxpayers to try to sell them that they have to pay more taxes. And lie any computer simulation, it is no more valid than the assumptions used to program it. If the assumptions are made up out of thin air (literally) the simulation, pretty as it is, is meaningless. Garbage in, garbage out! Carbon Dioxide is not a "key" driver of global warming. Certainly not compared to methane, water vapor, and solar output. Nor does Carbon Dioxide "take a toll" on Earth. It in in fact an essential part of the cycle of life on Earth!

Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler wonders why it’s so cold if global warming exists. Here’s the answer.

There are two options for what Hartzler, a Republican who represents Missouri's 4th District, hopes to accomplish here. The first is that she's making a joke about a serious environmental issue that has scientists around the world concerned about how mankind will fare under warmer conditions. We assume a member of Congress wouldn't make such a joke.

So let's assume Hartzler is actually wondering what happened to climate change (which is what conservative message-man Frank Luntz recommended Republicans call the effect). And for that we have an answer.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is the Washington Post, trying to slap down a Congresswoman for asking a prudent question, not by answering the question but by ridiculing her.

However, Congresswoman Hartzler is making a valid point. Back in March 20,2000 the UK Independent ran the banner headline "Snowfalls are now just a thing of the past." They were hardly alone in the proclamation that global warming meant snow and ice free winters.

We are now heading into yet another brutal winter and everyone who hitched their reputation to the human-caused global warming hoax (and its call for a carbon tax) are trying to save their reputations with ever-more fantastic reasons why we should ignore the evidence before our eyes and trust the pretty graphs and charts being wagged in front of us. The "explanations" for why we are seeing ever-colder winters in an age of human-caused global warming range from "The heat is hiding in the deep ocean" to "global warming CAUSES colder weather!"

Rest assured the defenders of the revealed dogma have plenty of impressive looking numbers to throw at you. On May 4th, 2014, a record high temperature was reported in Wichita, Kansas. What they did not mention was the temperature was recorded in the middle of the airport, surrounded by aircraft burning tons of kerosene. Another embarrassment we should all keep in mind is NOAA-16, a satellite sent up to prove the world was getting warmer, and indeed the data it provided did show higher temperatures ... until NOAA was forced to admit the satellite was defective and erased the data from their serves (which hasn't stopped the Carbonazis from continuing to cite that data as proof the world is warming).

CLIMATEGATE: A CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY (UPDATED FOR NOVEMBER 2014)

You are witness to one of the greatest frauds perpetrated on the people of planet Earth, to trick them out of their money and into obedience under the guise of the fight against Human-Caused Global Warming (now rebranded "Human Caused Climate Change" to explain away the icicles we were told were not going to happen). The global warming scare was concocted out of outright lies, purchased science, and scare mongering to trick you into being willing to pay carbon taxes to solve a non-existent crisis you were told was all your fault. And, of course, to lull you into accepting the dictates of a global government that needed to save the Earth from you icky-poo human beings.

It was all a lie. Here is how it all happened.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Meanwhile the Carbonazis are desperate to keep their human-caused global warming hoax (and the carbon tax) by claiming this extremely cold weather is just a "pause" that should not cause anyone to question or doubt the revealed dogma!

Senate Dems filibuster Keystone pipeline, delivering major win to environmentalists

Senate Democrats filibustered the Keystone XL pipeline on Tuesday, in a vote that reverberated from Louisiana, where a key senator’s career is now likely doomed, to the broader national Democratic Party, where environmentalists have emerged triumphant in a divisive internal battle with labor unions.

The Keystone vote had taken on symbolism far beyond the small impact on American crude supplies and the slight effect expected on gas prices, with environmentalists drawing lines and daring moderate and conservative Democrats to cross it. In the end most were unwilling to defy the ascendant movement, and they said it marked a key moment in the global warming debate.

With nasty cold fronts thrusting an icy and early winter across the continental U.S. — along with last winter described by USA Today as "one of the snowiest, coldest, most miserable on record" — climatologist John L. Casey thinks the weather pattern is here to stay for decades to come.

Greenhouse Effect Of Water Vapor

The graph below shows how the greenhouse effect varies with humidity during the mid-latitude summer. As you can see, there is a huge increase in downwelling longwave radiation going from no water vapor to 1% water vapor (10,000 PPM.) A little bit of humidity goes a long way towards keeping the surface warm.

One of the reasons why Antarctica is so cold is that there is very little water vapor in the interior of the continent, so little heat reaches the surface from the atmosphere. Likewise, Mars is very cold despite a large amount of CO2 in its atmosphere, due to the low atmospheric pressure and lack of water vapor.

The concern for Monday night is that the sludge on the roads will freeze and turn to ice as temperatures drop.

“Drive slow, and don't hit your breaks, because you'll spin out of control it's better to be slow and cautious and avoid the problem to begin with,” said Brooke Hannah of Pickaway County.

Pistis declined to state how long the fault might have gone undetected. Nor would the shaken spokesman engage in speculation as to the damage done to the credibility of a decade’s worth of temperature readings taken from the problematic ‘NOAA-16’ satellite.

As we head into a hard winter and the global warming cult is struggling to perpetuate their hoax and their demand for a carbon tax, I am being flooded with emails with the usual insistance that global warming produces cold weather and that I should ignore the fact that back in 2000 the Carbonazis were saying the exact opposite. After all, they only got "this one little thing" wrong. Which is like saying Challenger was a successful mission except for the part where it exploded. Yet another email accused me of not looking at the "Big Picture" and wagged the satellite temperature data at me. But as this article points out, the NOAA-16 satellite on which all the warning studies were based was defective and produced a decade's worth of data that was anywhere from 10 to 15 degrees warmer than the data recorded by ground stations. NOAA finally admitted there was a problem and deleted the data from their servers, yet the Carbonazis still cite it as a primary source for the claim that the Earth is warming even though we are clearly getting more snow and ice over the last several winters.

I've seen how the weather pattern has been evolving in the last two weeks, and I'm ready to stick my neck out and give a winter forecast for Michigan. I'll give you the reasons why I think we will have a certain type of winter here in Michigan.

First off, I like to wait until we get into early November to see what type of upper air pattern is becoming established. The top graphic shows the upper air flow forecast for next Tuesday, November 18, 2014. It's pretty apparent that the upper air flow next week is coming right out of the arctic. The large circular area you see over Hudson Bay is the polar vortex.

So the polar vortex is already dropping farther south than normal. Unless we have a radical upper air pattern change, it looks like we are heading for a much colder than normal start to the winter.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Polar vortex" or how to admit the Earth is going into an ice age without actually admitting the theory of human-caused global warming was total bovine excrement.

The Arctic chill is gripping the Rockies and Upper Midwest — and it’s crawling east.

Arctic air that sent temperatures plunging 60 degrees in a single day and dumped THREE FEET of snow pushes towards East Coast

Frigid winter weather dumped huge amounts of snow on parts of the Midwest and transformed summer breezes into gusts far below freezing in a matter of hours is headed for the East Coast.

A huge front of cold air that has swamped Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan with intense and dangerous flurries of snow pushed south overnight, freezing places as far south as Oklahoma and Texas.

And by Thursday, the system will have reached New England and the Atlantic seaboard, where it could send temperatures plunging by 15 to 20 degrees. By the weekend freezing temperatures could reach as far south as Atlanta, Georgia.

Record cold in Denver, 2-4 inches of snow snarl traffic, cause airport delays

Bundle up, Denver.

And don't plan on getting anywhere in a hurry. Ice- and snow-covered roads were snarled with traffic. Minor delays were reported at Denver International Airport Wednesday morning. Morning flights can expect an hour delay, DIA spokesman Heath Montgomery said.

"We have some blowing snow, icy conditions, but things are running very smoothly, overall," he said.

Weather forecasters say records could be broken Wednesday as day three of the deep freeze continues.

"Very, very cold tonight," said David Barjenbruch, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service in Boulder. "Very, very cold today, too."'

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Here is the problem for Obama. He wants to tax carbon because (we have been told) carbon dioxide warms the earth, but only the carbon dioxide produced by you icky-poo humans. Ahh, but we are into the brutal winter I was forcasting back in September, so the Carbonazis are screaming "climate change" and still pushing for a carbon tax. But, logically, if carbon dioxide warms the planet and the planet is obviously cooling, then the whole rationale for a carbon tax to reduce carbon emissions is destroyed. Don't we need MORE carbon dioxide rather than less? Of course, we now know courtesy of Jonathan Gruber that the administration thinks we are all stupid and need to be lied into going along with whatever lame ideas pop into their antidepressant-addled heads!

A blast of wintry weather blew into parts of the Rockies and Upper Midwest on Monday, bringing a foot of snow in some areas, along with plunging temperatures. The cold weather is expected to eventually blanket the central U.S. from the Rockies to the Great Lakes region.

The frigid air was pushed in by a powerful storm that hit Alaska with hurricane-force winds over the weekend, and threatened to bury several states in snow and send temperatures as much as 40 degrees below average. A look at the storm and its effects:

MAGIC ROCKS TO FIGHT GLOBAL WARMING

The solution to global warming, Olaf Schuiling says, lies beneath our feet.

"For Dr. Schuiling, a retired geochemist, climate salvation would come in the form of olivine, a green-tinted mineral found in abundance around the world. When exposed to the elements, it slowly takes carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.

Olivine has been doing this naturally for billions of years, but Dr. Schuiling wants to speed up the process by spreading it on fields and beaches and using it for dikes, pathways, even sandboxes. Sprinkle enough of the crushed rock around, he says, and it will eventually remove enough CO2 to slow the rise in global temperatures."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

You can absorb CO2 from the air using more green plants along those same walkways. In fact there is a story that one of Al Gore's minions calculated that a 15% increase in use of decorative plants would counter all of the CO2 increase seen in Al Gore's film, at which point he was fired, because reducing carbon was never the real agenda. Selling carbon credits was.

Study Says Natural Factors, Not Humans, Behind West Coast Warming

Oceanographers and atmospheric scientists are quick to say the warming waters are not linked to human-caused climate change, but also say what they've seen doesn't match other recognized patterns in ocean conditions.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Maybe.

Or maybe we have a classic case of specialists being so specialized they don't see what they need to see.

Here is where "interdisciplinary" science becomes valuable.

In the illustration shown in the above article, note that the pattern of heat appears near New Guinea in the area of the Marianas trench. I have indicated the point of origin on the below copy.



Now, I have mentioned many times before that nobody knows how many active volcanoes and thermal vents there are on the floor of the world's oceans, but we do know where many of them are, as is indicated on this map from the USGS.

From the section indicated in detail it is clear that there are a great many volcanoes in the exact same area where the plume of warm water is appearing, which suggests that these volcanoes, rather than human activity or unknown ocean flow patterns, is what is pouring heat into the Pacific!

Winter is coming: U.S. braces itself for Arctic blast with average temperatures to drop 20 degrees below normal

The U.S. is bracing itself for freezing temperatures and snow as a result of part of the polar vortex heading southwards - sending temperatures spiralling 10 to 20 degrees below normal.

The current mild weather is forecasted to end on Sunday, when a vast pocket of extremely cold air will hit the Central and Eastern States and keep them in its icy grip until Friday.

The polar vortex is a massive cyclone that circles the planet's geographical poles. The Northern Hemisphere vortex often contains two extremely cold low pressure centres, one near Baffin Island, Canada and the other over northeast Siberia in Russia.

EU leaders have reached a landmark deal to cut greenhouse gas emissions by 40% by 2030, compared with 1990 levels.

The binding decision came after heated discussions at a summit in Brussels, as some members had argued that their varied interests should be protected.

Correspondents say the final deal is a compromise between countries that rely heavily on coal, and those willing to instil greater emissions cuts

John Bolaris: Siberian snow could be early predictor of Philly winter

How deep is the snow in a northern region of Russia on the other side of the world?

It may seem like an odd question, but one of the factors that goes into a long-range winter outlook for Philadelphia's upcoming winter season is the amount of snow cover piling up this time of the year in Siberia.

And as it just so happens, Siberia's snow cover is rapidly increasing. This is significant because it's one of the signals that could lead to a potentially colder winter here.

Climate change PROVED to be 'nothing but a lie', claims top meteorologist

John Coleman, who co-founded the Weather Channel, shocked academics by insisting the theory of man-made climate change was no longer scientifically credible.

Instead, what 'little evidence' there is for rising global temperatures points to a 'natural phenomenon' within a developing eco-system.

In an open letter attacking the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, he wrote: "The ocean is not rising significantly.

"The polar ice is increasing, not melting away. Polar Bears are increasing in number.

"Heat waves have actually diminished, not increased. There is not an uptick in the number or strength of storms (in fact storms are diminishing).

"I have studied this topic seriously for years. It has become a political and environment agenda item, but the science is not valid."

Polar vortex will likely make a return this winter, says Accuweather

“Cold air will surge into the Northeast in late November, but the brunt of the season will hold off until January and February,” they write. “The polar vortex, the culprit responsible for several days of below-zero temperatures last year, will slip down into the region from time to time, delivering blasts of arctic air.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"So remember; think "Polar Vortex" and don't ever, ever, EVER, let all that snow and ice cause you to doubt for the teensiest instant the most holy revealed dogma of human-caused global warming and my need for a carbon tax. Or you'll get a bitch-slap that will make what happened to Galileo look like a parking ticket!" -- Official White Horse Souse

Far out in the tropical Pacific Ocean and high above North America, nature appears to be stirring up another cold and snowy winter for Delaware and the Mid-Atlantic.

The prediction from State College, Pa.-based Accuweather Inc. is among the earliest to arrive in this year's crop of cold season outlooks. Although other forecasting agencies and scientists are more inclined to hedge for now, Accuweather expert senior meteorologist Bob Smerbeck said Friday that his company's weather models are pointing to a no-compromises winter in the Northeast.

Climate Science: Is it Currently Designed to Answer Questions?

When an issue becomes a vital part of a political agenda, as is the case with climate, then the politically desired position becomes a goal rather than a consequence of scientific research. This paper will deal with the origin of the cultural changes and with specific examples of the operation and interaction of these factors. In particular, we will show how political bodies act to control scientific institutions, how scientists adjust both data and even theory to accommodate politically correct positions, and how opposition to these positions is disposed of.
