I answered your question just after you posted it Ron. You are welcome.

For every complex problem there is an answer that is clear, simple, and wrong.

Yeah Ed, it is an amazing time as they attempt to close the energy imbalance problem that has kept the modeling results diverging more, not less than from observations.Thanks for bringing the papers to light.

Is anyone else here reading the solar physics papers that come to the conclusion that the late 20th century was a "Grand Maxima" of activity. Since all the CMip's seem to take the value of TSI based on the late 20th century as a mean it is no wonder that they were able to smooth into insignificance periods like the medieval and roman warm periods.

On another note what are the emerging explanations for the "late and fridgid spring" felt almost universally in the high mid to upper north latitudes?

No Ed, this is an event. Coldest in north latitudes in over fifty years. Records were broken all over the northern globe.

Records were broken all over the northern globe.

boy, they sure were

why just last summer both the US and Europe broke all kinds of recorded heat records

but I think Ed's point is that "weather" and climate are two very different things

weather is continually variable with many divergent localized differences, like Rick's example of some reported coldness

whereas climate is a much broader meaning without the degree of localization as weather

That's the thing about records..there was always one before the current one. For example...

Minneapolis tanked to 21 degrees Saturday morning, its first record low since August, 2004. (There had been 42 record highs in that span, according to Minneapolisí Paul Douglas).

So, what the ignorant fuktards do is latch onto ONE measurement that supports their misinformed view, and disregard the 42 record highs that occurred between the two record lows. It makes prefect sense, unless of course you think about it.

Look into Polar Vortex Collapse. It's been happening for a number of years now.

There is an event making the rock wet here in squamish right now..... in case you're wondering.

Good question raised by Rick Inferior. I keep hearing something about high amplitude jet stream waves getting "stuck" stationary. What are the boys saying up at the Wassilla Bar and Grill? Russians?

Climate Science Censorship by the Bush Administration;

Turns out this video does not cover the censorship that much.

ok, now you're talking...

you've made a statistical statement regarding the likelihood that this year is "normal" and your contention, which is probably correct, is that it is not normal...

that is climate...

...now please tell me how many hot "events" have occurred, vs. cold events in the last decade?

Weather, like history, repeats itself. In fact, I think weather is more unpredictable than human events in history.

But there do seem to be measurable, and recorded, timelines of weather events.

Well, that settles it, doesn't it? I guess all you science guys should get real jobs now.

Things are looking up. This thread was nearly extinct just a couple of months ago. Now we have Dr Bluering joining us. Welcome Dr Bluering! You'll have to take a stool over by Dr Werner Von Braun for now but you may be elevated in status at a later date. We were just listening to Dr Rick Inferior expound on his theories of intuitive sense in public policy. If you could refrain from interrupting we may yet learn something.

Please continue Rick.

Yeah, you geniuses keep postulating your bullsh#t. Do whatever makes you feel grand.

Most people use common sense, and we realize the obvious. But then, I'm stupid, and you Global Warming activists are the smart ones.

So glad you're here to help us from ourselves.

I had posted how much snow the dacks had the last day,it is amazing the misinformation out there.Very strange indeed that only 3 to 4 mountains in ny actually recieved measurable snow.
I talked to friend today who lives,skis and climbs ,in saranac lake.The snow was only on whiteface,the pictures you seen were on the whiteface mountain highway on the north/norteast aspect ,where big drifts had accumilated.He also said it was a total elevation event,not even freezing below 4000 ft.
It was a weather event that will hardly make a difference in any averages other than snow depth anomalies.
noaa shallow snow depth today

The major accumalation is right where whiteface is with a little more on one or two nearby mountains.

Meanwhile ,tornados in Oklahoma,6 to 10 inches of rain in Iowa,and now forcasted highs of the mid 90s by tuesday/wednesday here in WNY.

My point being,science has predicted wild swings in "weather patterns",for how long now,YEARS.Now that these patterns HAVE materialized ,deniers are quick to point out,it is just weather.Weather is always changing,it always has.
Never mind,you have been warned for 20 plus years.

Deniers are just strengthening the scientists case.
I sincerly hope no one gets hurt as this hurricane season is just starting.

Ed H., please....What are your thoughts on geo-engineering?

What are your thoughts on adding fluoride to drinking water?

And if you could, your thoughts on Monsanto?

I have asked you this question all of 5 times now. If you do not reply, I will respect your decision to remain silent, and will not ask again.

Thank you.

NWO2, what do any of those have to do with Climate Change and the idiots who think they are being skeptics?
