Daily global warming (GW) alert information

*** The GW truth and charts? Click here ***

 

Introduction.

Human society needs hypes or at least something to have an opinion, worry or belief about so it seems. Touch wood, if there isn’t anything available to match that need, it will be created. The same goes for the recent warming up of the planet. Even though whether or not and why this is truly happening, it doesn’t really matter in the context of Earth’s relative lengthy history. Touch richly carbonated wood again, there is nothing we can do about warming or freezing the globe or keeping it “normal”,  fancy the thought and human complacency.

 

The information provided is no more than another collection of irrational anecdotal proofs of Global Warming, absurd causes and solutions. Since the data contain more observations from European and northern hemisphere cities (see list of observatories), the averages are seriously skewed. However, the values from Belgian observatories are not included and frankly, it doesn’t make any difference for the purpose of proving a point by using trendy and biased raw data. Who said again that you can prove anything with statistics? Everyone does it and when there is no news, it has to be made. If someone as much as coughed in Acapulco, these data can prove it. The links to Significant Global Events are valid as long as the source posts them.

Number of visitors to date:

 


 [JM1]Look at the date, there must be at least an asteroid impact , a nasty volcanic eruption or interglacial period unaccounted for. In the mean time, the ocean levels have fallen by 5 metres, followed by an unexplained recovery due to excessive rain in Commonwealth countries, the temperature has risen due to extensive forest fires on top of a heat wave in Southern Europe and Global Warming presumably is just getting worse.

 [JM2]And actually completely unrelated: Global warming is well on its way to make the wealthy and the Danes comfortable, the middle class panicking and the poor underdeveloped destined to unwillingly pay up. The "planet" is not at risk, see if it cares for the fancy organised herd of an otherwise temporary lucky evolutionary spin-off.

 [JM3]

 [JM4]How to turn facts and speculations into amazing and horrific bogey science.

Reading the first article should pop the heads of any ignorant mob of deniers, reading the original Science one however...

 

Some straightening up:

 

The CO2 sink.

The "ocean CO2 sink" consists of two components. One near the surface, volatile and subject to temperature and acidity and the other in the deep ocean repository of inert dead organic stuff. One can consider saturation of the surface sink but not the second. One could deposit all CO2 in the deep ocean and wait until it surfaces as oil or coal for ages...albeit extinct while waiting.

 

Increased winds.

The notion that wind stirs up the deep ocean CO2 sink and thereby makes it "harder for the Southern Ocean to accommodate more human-generated carbon, which comes from factories, coal-fired power plants and petroleum-powered motor vehicle exhaust" is well, a joke perhaps? Try stir up mud in a decent bucket by blowing (hard!) on the water surface. Besides, that comodity came from there in the first place.

 

Succumbing to isolating quotes: "On the time scale of several thousand years, it is estimated that about 90% of the anthropogenic CO2 emissions will end up in the ocean. Christopher Sabine, NOAA", our decendants will be grateful for the renewed organic fuel supply, should their nuclear fusion or other CO2-neutral emissions fail energy demand.    

 

 [JM5]One would assume that  all food production eventually produces methane and CO2. Claiming that burning drained CH4 into CO2 and H2O to alter global warming? Way to go into absurdity.

 [JM6]Not the news that Mars is warming up as well should be absurd but the notion that Martian dust is causative. The fools who thought that decent volcanic eruptions in our terrestial history or excessive escalation nuclear conflicts caused temporary global cooling should reconsider their phony science: Dust traps heat Sir, look at Mars.

 [JM7]Gliese 581c

 

Instead of wasting time and efforts fixing Global Warming on our thoroughly screwed up planet, salvation is a mere 20.5 light years (194,750,000,000,000 km) away. A few insignificant details such as finding an appropriate wormhole and convenient check-in point; and amongst too many to list, the political, religious, economic, cultural and racial distribution on the hopefully collections of rocks.

Useful to note, the alleged night/day side of the Gliese581c based on the presumption that it doesn’t rotate, is wrong: if it didn’t, the day-night would match its orbit of 13 earth days.

 

 [JM8]It has been just around the bend for a while: The human contribution to Global Warming has contributed to major landslides changes in afterlife concepts. Those who believed that a relatively minor punative record could rely on a probation of redemption awaiting post-mortem salvation, or indeed born and died unbaptized, are now faced with the divine decision that purgatory has to be closed down.

 

Following suggestive and lately conclusive evidence that the excessive burning of hell's resources by humanity is caused a shift in purgatory temperatures towards infernal conditions has created an atmosphere no longer sustainable as a temporate heaven waiting room. Noted complaints such as “it’s getting bloody hot here!” and “We’ve been had!”, urged management to reconsider the expediency of maintaining a middle heaven site.

 

Understandably, discontent has progessed to anxiety about the forthcoming closure and inevitable final judgement hearings. The standpoint of the executive spoesman leaves little hope for those who demand more eternal time for purification efforts: “It’s their [Humanity’s] own fault, therefore they have to bear the consequences.”

 

Rumour goes that the current worsening climate is a pretext to abolish a construction has been an problematic concept from start.

 [JM9]"He explains that while it is possible to treat temperature statistically locally, it is meaningless to talk about a a global temperature for Earth. The Globe consists of a huge number of components which one cannot just add up and average. That would correspond to calculating the average phone number in the phone book. That is meaningless. Or talking about economics, it does make sense to compare the currency exchange rate of two countries, whereas there is no point in talking about an average 'global exchange rate'."

So true, and then we haven't talked about the abuse of percent increase/decrease yet. Take a 'global average' (sic) of 18 °C over a convenient (!) observation period of 100 years. Note that this average is 18.5 °C over the last 10 years. The increase is 2.7%, taking 18 °C as beaseline. If the calculation is done with degrees Kelvin (Extended °C scale to the absolute zero), the increase is 0.18%. The same absurd statistic approach is used to claim that dental flossing decreases tooth plaque by 200%... of what?  

 [JM10]There is no doubt yet another documentary showing Humans trekking across the arctic ice and swimming from iceberg to iceberg would have impressed the most sceptic globally warmed Polar Bear. Given the threat of territorial invasion, one would expect no less than an increased animosity from Polar Beasrs against this Human colonialism. No wonder they are suffering from environmental stress leading to possible extinction.

A microclimate is a local external atmospheric zone where the climate differs from the surrounding area. Urbanization is a problem? Paint it white and you contribute to the next ice age.

 [JM12]Is trying to solve it.

 [JM13]So far, this beats it all.

"Although environmentalists say planting corn for ethanol production will lead to widespread deforestation, Professor Somerville says Miscanthus can be planted on land currently used for food production." Allrightie: Away with Alfalfa and Spinach, we need the Ethanol for fuel. No questions asked about the effect of Miscanthus monoculture needs in an non-ornamental evironment, which at best is .just as detrimental as growing Spinach.

"For example, in British Columbia they are losing each year forests the size of Rhode Island because of beetle infestation, because it is not cold enough in the winter to kill the beetles, and they are killing the forest." "Climate change threatens biodiversity more than anything that I know." 

Try to follow the logic. 1. Global Warming causes warmer winters --> 2. Seasonal beetle morbidity declines --> 3. More forest trees are killed --> 4. Global Warming causes biodiversity decline --> 5. Replace forests with ethanol productive monocultures.

Instead of "But is it worse for the environment than climate change? That's the question," he said; one should wonder what is worse: Climate change or the hyped panic and abuse?

 

 [JM14]No worries, if the warming thing doesn't befall us as predicted, the next Ice Age is an almternative option. Allthough some dramatic effects may be the reverse, most will be in the same ballpark. After all it doesn't really matter wetrher costal areas are flooded or get covered by a new glacier, in terms of sensational doom scenarios that is.

 

 [JM15]Global Warming makes life easy. Instead of research in depth into disastrous fenomena, consider the following progress in political, environmental, religious, social, medical, economic, cultural, technological, scientific and (sic) climatological approach to news reporting:

North-American continent is increasingly hit by rapid Global Warming effects <(full stop)>

Instead of

Tornadoes hit Florida.

Record snow fall in North-East.

Less tropical storms during high season

The war in Iraq is not justified (anymore)

US does not ratify Kyoto

Polar bears hunger strike environmental protest

The other bears don't sleep anymore during winter

Fast food, trans-fats and meat-eating cause obesity and diabetis

Smoking kills

...

 

 [JM16]Might as well build with industrial diamond: pure Carbon.

 [JM17]The perfect Global Warming citizen:

- Wears synthetic clothes, washed cold and not ironed

- Doesn't smoke

- Boycots LED equipped devices

- Wears extra (synthetic!) sweaters instead of turning up the heating or the airconditionng

- Doesn't own a car

- Doesn't fly, in fact doesn't travel at all

- Doesn't eat meat, except for road kills and legally killed wildlife

- Plants trees,... like everywhere

- Uses (synthetic!) or less toilet paper

- Moves to higher land for own safety

- Invests in Greenland and Antarctic real estate

- Fills up his car, if any, with booze

- Invests in Global wrming research, gets rich, ignores all the above and just pays the GW-taxes to come

 [JM18]Ah! You don’t believe (sic) human activities can increase atmospheric CO2, and therefore Global Warming? A burning bushel of wood under your feet will prove it.  

 [JM19]Now we know thanks to the UN report: The earth’s climate is warming and it is very likely that humans caused it. What to do next? Apparentlly, first jump up and down and scream that humans caused this without question and blame scientists for not being dogmatic. People need certainty in their lives and pinpoint who's to blame the most, you know? At least we know one thing: we're doomed. So change the banners, "Stop Global Warming!" is no longer applicable. Next it will be "Reduce Global Warming!", instead of figuring out how to deal with the possible (duh, again uncerrtain) consequences.

 [JM20]Make sure to wear some seaweed in your hair.

 [JM21]Another shrink’s or “Animal behaviour” expert’s wet dream: Establish your successful career on GWSD and link it to baldness. The fact that human don't hibernate is irrelevant: they deprive sleep every night, tossing between globally warmed sweaty sheets.

 [JM22]Future war objective: control those mirrors (if controlable at all) and rule the world.

 [JM23]Sometimes the logic is hard to follow unless one applies "whatever you write about, involve global warming or be damned". Does a warm globe produce less or more precipitation, beit snow,  rain or unevenly distributed for that matter? Anyhow one has either more than enough or too little in dirty pipes. Like now. The thing to remember seems to use plastic pipes when Greenland and Antarctica are developed for enhanced inhabitation. Proactive thinking...?

 [JM24]Today’s overall  figures couldn’t possibly be closer to the week average. This can only mean a whopping global warming effect tomorrow, if the proverbial Asian butterfly flutters its wings.

 [JM25]"Australia's weather bureau said this month that the country appeared to be suffering from an accelerated climate change brought about by global warming."

Wet or dry,... or normal? The next step is "This month's weather appears unusually normal due to deccelerated climate change brought about by global warming"

 [JM26]...A subjective sample of comments

 

I distinctly remember a time in history when scientific consensus supported a completely irrational "fact" - the earth was flat. Thank God for Christopher Columbus' dissenting voice and courage to prove his theory.

I'd like to thank everyone who has posted up to this point. I've been looking into the global warming debate a lot (too much in fact) over the past month, and I have started to become ill due to the abundance of bigotry. It was very nice to see the vast majority of you not only expressing your voice against global warming and/or man's alleged contribution, but also backing your claims with evidence. The urge to scream and punch things has slightly subsided thanks to you all.

This issue smacks way too much of things religious, where a group of people are compelled to explain away things they encounter, while dangerously ignoring evidence to the contrary. I mention danger because our legislature looks very poised to make things happen based on their single-sided perception of climate change.

 [JM27]Let’s face it: Global warming is good. No need for Bears to hibernate and Eskimo's to build iglo's no more; and I can grow oranges in my garden, take a tornado or two and a white-Xmas holiday in Greenland.
