Global Temperatures Drop Back To Pre-El Nino Levels

A new study found adjustments made to global surface temperature readings by scientists in recent years “are totally inconsistent with published and credible U.S. and other temperature data.” Climate scientists often apply adjustments to surface temperature thermometers to account for “biases” in the data. The new study doesn’t question the adjustments themselves but notes nearly all of them increase the warming trend. “Nearly all of the warming they are now showing are in the adjustments,” Meteorologist Joe D’Aleo, a study co-author, told The Daily Caller News Foundation in an interview. “Each dataset pushed down the 1940s warming and pushed up the current warming.” –Michael Bastasch, Daily Caller, 7 July 2017

Western European efforts to isolate President Trump for rejecting the Paris climate change agreement appear to be faltering as leaders gather for a summit meeting in Hamburg, Germany, at the end of the week. Environmental activists, hoping to highlight America’s status as an outlier, also are pushing hard for a united front against Mr. Trump. In recent days, however, those aiming to isolate the United States on climate issues have softened their language to say they hope an “overwhelming majority” embrace the Paris agreement. –Lisa Friedman, The New York Times, 5 July 2017

Clean coal projects such as those proposed by the Turnbull government are expected to be endorsed by G20 leaders this week. —Australian Associated Press, 6 July 2017

The U.S. natural gas market has rebalanced with higher prices steadying 1roduction while reducing demand from electricity generators and making room for increased exports. Coal-fired power plants were the main beneficiaries from higher gas prices, increasing their electricity generation by almost 7 percent. Coal-fired plants operated at an average of 49 percent of their maximum output between January and April compared with 44 percent in the same period in 2016. —Reuters, 5 July 2017

It would seem, therefore, that to the extent that more people will want to become rich, the world will need more fossil and nuclear fuels, not less. There is one way to try to square this circle and that is to redesign the world to be more energy efficient, and for those who are rich and middle class to halve their per capita daily energy consumption by changing their lifestyle, but, again, this an unlikely prospect. –Michael Kelly, Global Warming Policy Forum, 5 July 2017

If the amount of renewable energy in the other states increases and they continue to shut down thermal power stations that can generate continuously and reliably and stabilise the power system, South Australian type problems are inevitable and will steadily increase. Whichever way you look at it, there is no quick, cheap and easy solution to the Australian disaster. –Bryan Leyland, Global Warming Policy Forum, 4 July 2017

    This is the type of truth you wont see on the on the front pages of your daily birdcage liner/parrots toilet/fishwrap nor will you hear from the lie a day main-stream news media reptiles

    Apparently Bastach is still Blind as a Ideologically driven BAT.

    EVERY El Nino event was followed by a temperature withdrawal and rearming of the Climate. Having said that, after 3 successively HOTTER years….2017 is running a series of 2nd bests…..not SO MUCH of a WITHDRAWAL or DOWNTURN in temps as BASTACH would let you believe.

    BASTACH (A mouthpiece for Killer Coal & Big Oil, quoting a meteorologist mouth piece for the DAILY CALLER FOUNDATION….does not seem to ADD TOO MUCH CREDIBILITY to the article… fact, it is almost as humorous as the CERTIFIED MASSAGE THERAPIST DAILY CALLER parade across the front page as a CLIMATE EXPERT……((with no college degree, no climate or scientific training, no tutoring in climate science…or for that matter even in history. TOO FUNNY …
    The planet continues to accumulate heat.

    So we see a direct line of evidence that we’re causing global warming. Human CO2 emissions far outstrip the rise in CO2 levels.
    The enhanced greenhouse effect is confirmed by satellites and many surface measurements.
    The planet’s energy imbalance is confirmed by summations of the planet’s total heat content and ocean heat measurements….”

    CONCERNED Stated:
    What happened in the distant past,
    4 1/2 billion years ago,
    65 million years ago, or even
    120,000 or
    20,000 years ago, has absolutely nothing to do with what is happening now.
    Different mechanisms are involved.
    Scientists told you about past climate changes.
    They are telling you that now it is different.
    Pay attention.
    This Holocene interglacial thermal maximum, occurred 7,000-7500 years ago.
    After this maximum, there have been roughly 7000-7500 years of natural cooling,
    as we started the slow descent into the next ice age / glaciation !
    ( much of the last 1000 years is called the LITTLE ICE AGE )
    ( “ICE AGE” because it continued thousands of years of cooling on earth )
    (“LITTLE” because it ended abruptly in 1750-1800 )
    What Caused
    a sudden and complete reversal of the Earth’s Most Powerful natural cooling trend,
    which has occurred in the last 250 years.
    THERE IS NO natural explanation,
    NO NATURAL CYCLE which explains this complete / sudden reversal, FROM millenia of Falling Temperatures to Rapid RISING Temperatures.
    The CO2 enhanced greenhouse effect does explain it.
    It is science.
    Get some.

      “Direct line of evidence”? Adjusting the data to fit your belief in an ” enhanced greenhouse effect ” is not a direct line. CO2 is a infinitesimal portion of the atmosphere, dwarfed by water vapor. BTW , why is warmer bad? Even if humans were raising temperatures, it is only immoral to radical Gaia worshippers.

    Climate temperature measurement claims of accuracy to within a degree or two are statistically impossible over the earth even with the improvements made available through recent temperature measurement methods . The false representation of “record temperature” plus /or minus is nonsense and a con job .
    Warming happens to be current long term cycle which is far more desirable than the opposite when it reoccurs again .
    Such complete crap that humans are some how going to pull a
    goldilocks and set the temperature to be just right .
