Climate Astrology: Blizzard blamed on global warming?! Is there any weather event that is inconsistent with global warming? — Climate Depot Round up

[Updates on global warming blizzard claims here.]

Here we go again. Global warming activists and some warmist scientists are linking the massive blizzard to man-made global warming.

Jersey News Outlet Cries ‘Global Warming’ as Blizzard Approaches

Warmist Brad Johnson tries to make the pending East Coast blizzard about the ocean ‘warming –Fails

Rebuttal: Bob Tisdale shows how ‘Forecast the Facts” Brad Johnson and now Dr. Heidi Cullen are fecklessly factless about ocean warming and the blizzard — Dear Chicken Little: ‘The Sky Is Falling (It’s Snowing) But Sea Surface Temperature Anomalies Off New England Are NOT Unusual’

Rebuttal: Global Warming To Bring Colder/Warmer Winters – Analysis by Paul Homewood – ‘It seems that every time we get some snow, another “scientist” is wheeled out to explain that, no matter how cold it gets, it is all down to global warming’

New paper finds warming causes less snow: Paper published in the Journal of Climate — Study ‘finds that warmer temperatures cause less snow, and conversely, colder temperatures cause more snow. According to the authors, ‘Using a simple multivariate model, [increased] temperature is shown to drive these trends by decreasing snowfall almost everywhere.’ The paper refutes the claims of climate alarmists that global warming causes more snow, and every other possible weather event’

UN IPCC 2001: ‘Milder winter temperatures will decrease heavy snowstorms’ — Also, The UN IPCC Draft in 1995: ‘Shrinking snow cover in winter’ — Analysis: ‘In 2010-2011, heavy snow was due to global warming. Then in 2012 the lack of snow in the Eastern US was due to global warming, and now in 2013 heavy snow is again due to global warming’

Settled Science: Global Warming To Bring Colder/Warmer Winters — ‘It seems that every time we get some snow, another ‘scientist’ is wheeled out to explain that, no matter how cold it gets, it is all down to global warming…But let’s, for one moment, remind ourselves of some of the ‘scientists’ who have said the exact opposite’

CNN Anchor Blames Asteroid on Global Warming: Anchor Deb Feyerick asked if an approaching asteroid, which will pass by Earth on Feb. 15, ‘is an example of, perhaps, global warming?’ — CNN Anchor: ‘Every time we see a storm like this lately, the first question to pop into a lot of people’s minds is whether or not global warming is to blame? I’ll talk to Bill Nye, ‘the science guy,’ about devastating storms & climate change’

Meteorologist Ryan Maue: ‘Just imagine Fox News aired a segment so scientifically ignorant asking if ‘asteroids’ were caused by global warming?’

Flashback 2011: ‘Global Warming Alarmists Flip-Flop On Snowfall’

Global Warming Causes Less Snow, Except When It Causes More Snow

Flashback 1977: CRU Director Hubert Lamb of U. of East Anglia: Climate Change Is Natural: ‘Nature doesn’t know what ‘normal’ means’ — Lamb: ‘The idea of normal weather is an unfortunate legacy resulting from the idea that grew up in the early days of this century that the climate was constant. Nature doesn’t know what ‘normal’ means’

New Report: ‘Extreme Weather Report 2012’: ‘Latest peer-reviewed studies, data & analyses undermine claims that current weather is ‘unprecedented’ or a ‘new normal’ — Climate Depot’s New 35-Page Report: ‘Current weather is neither historically unprecedented, nor unusual’ — ‘Extreme weather events are ever present, and there is no evidence of systematic increases’ — Presented at UN Climate Conference in Doha, Qatar on Dec. 6, 2012

Round Up of Snowy Winters & Global Warming Claims – Excerpted from Climate Depot’s Extreme Weather Report

Flashback 2010: Climate Depot’s Morano on Fox News: ‘There is no way anyone can falsify the global warming theory now because any weather event that happens ‘proves’ their case’

Flashback 2010: NYT’s Climate Astrology: ‘Bundle Up, It’s Global Warming’ — ‘Overall warming of the atmosphere is actually creating cold-weather extremes’

Flashback 2010: Watch Now! Climate Depot’s Morano in MSNBC TV Debate — Morano: ‘Now [the warmists] are trying to say global warming causes blizzards, that’s the level of climate astrology — it’s like a daily horoscope — nothing that happens falsifies the [warming] theory’ — ‘He (Weiss) need’s Tarot cards, that is what he needs, he is peddling astrology’

Flashback: Top Democrats Warn Low Snow Levels Prove Global Warming (Video) — ‘Watch Democrats Jay Inslee, Barbara Boxer, Amy Klobuchar, Robert Byrd and Dianne Feinstein express deep concern and alarm during years when winters were mild and snow was light, contending that global warming was the cause.’

Flashback 2011: Gore now claims ‘increased heavy snowfalls are completely consistent with… man-made global warming’ — But Gore never warned of looming ‘heavy snowfalls’ in his 2006 film — The man who ‘created’ the Internet finds his website (and his science) not up to the task — Climate Depot’s Rebuttal


Gore now claims ‘increased heavy snowfalls are completely consistent with… man-made global warming’

The New York Times on December 27, 2012, featured an OpEd with the headline : Bundle Up, It’s Global Warming

Watch Now: Flashback: Climate Depot’s Morano on Fox News Mocking ‘Climate Astrology’: ‘This is now akin to the predictions of Nostradamus or the Mayan calendar’ — Morano: ‘There is no way anyone can falsify the global warming theory now because any weather event that happens ‘proves’ their case…Man-made global warming has ceased to be a science, it is now the level of your daily horoscope’ — Gore [in 2006 film] did not warn us of extreme blizzards and record cold winters coming’

Dueling Claims About How Global Warming Affects Winters: ‘The IPCC says global warming makes winter mild with less snow’ — ‘Milder winter temps will decrease heavy snowstorms’ — ‘Settled science also tells us global warming makes winter cold and snowy in the US Climatologist Dr. Roy Spencer Mocks Gore: OMG! ANOTHER GLOBAL WARMING SNOWSTORM!! — ‘Gore has caused the spread of more pseudo-scientific incompetence on the subject of global warming than any climate scientist could possibly have ever accomplished…No serious climate researcher — including the ones I disagree with — believes global warming can cause colder weather. Unless they have become delusional as a result of some sort of mental illness’

Meteorologist Anthony Watts: ‘Apparently, Gore has never noted that climate scientists once thought snowfall would disappear.But wait, there’s more. According to Dr David Viner, a senior research scientist at the climatic research unit (CRU) of the University of East Anglia,within a few years winter snowfall will become “a very rare and exciting event”. “Children just aren’t going to know what snow is,” Viner said.

‘Incorrect’: Climatologist Pielke Sr. Slaps Down NYT For Global Warming Blizzard Claims! — ‘The oceans have not been warming in recent years’ — ‘ALL seasonal and longer time scale model predictions have failed to skillfully predict these extreme cold events’

Flashback 2008: ‘Why Winter No Longer Exists’ — ‘Winter has gone for ever…Climate change has wiped out the season of traditionally long, hard frosts’

Climate Astrology: ‘No matter what the weather is like, it always turns out to be exactly the kind of weather we should expect if human activity were causing global temps to rise’ — ‘The natural sciences have terms for that kind of hypothesis. ‘Unfalsifiable’ is one of them. ‘Unscientific’ is another. An idea may be true, but if it is incapable of being ‘falsified’ or proven wrong, then whatever else that idea is, it certainly isn’t science.’

Doh! NASA’s James Hansen in 2008: Warm UK winters ‘are a clear sign that the climate is changing’

Climatologist Pielke Sr. counters claim of ‘more moisture’ causing more extreme weather: ‘Stratospheric water vapor concentrations decreased by about 10% after year 2000’

Oops. UK Met Office in 2006: ‘We are expecting milder winters’ — Head of predictions, Dr. Geoff Jenkins, the ‘believes the mild, wet winter is almost certainly a sign of global warming’

Declining Snow Cover Causes Record Snow Cover: ‘This winter (December-February) will almost certainly be in the top two snow cover years for the northern hemisphere. Right now it is positioned as the snowiest winter on record. As our top climate scientists explain it, the shortage of snow cover is the cause of the record snow cover.’

‘So is there any weather pattern that would disprove global warming?’

Warmists propose that colder Northern Hemisphere winters since 1988 are due to global warming

‘We used to call them snake oil salesmen, now we call them climate scientists’ — ‘Ten years ago climate scientists forecast warm winters and lack of snow, because we were having warm winters and a lack of snow. Now they forecast cold winters and lots of snow, because that is what is occurring’

‘Full panic mode’: Climate Institute Now Says To Expect ‘Warmer Colder’ Winters! — ‘They can no longer get their stories straight’ ‘Propaganda machinery switched into high gear’

How Do You Differentiate Between CO2 Cold And Non-CO2 Cold?’ — ‘Given the incontrovertible evidence that evil humans made the weather cold (by making the earth hot) I was wondering how you tell the difference between -20C caused by CO2 and -20C caused by a lack of CO2. Do they make a thermometer which can tell the difference?’

Paper: ‘No matter what the weather, it’s all due to warming. This isn’t science; it’s a kind of faith’

Climatologist Dr. Pielke Sr. dismisses warming causes cold claims: ‘They continue to miss the significance that it is the regional circulations that matter, not a global average anomaly’ — ‘Until and unless they can skillfully predict observationally documented CHANGES in the statistics (probabilities) of the different major circulation patterns, their explanations are necessarily flawed’

Climatologist Dr. Pat Michaels Mocks Heat Causing Cold Claims: ‘It is the core problem of climatology — attempting to explain everything even when everything becomes contradictory’

‘Propaganda Mill Marches On’: ‘These unusually harsh winters usually are the result of heating somewhere else, most likely in areas of the world that are already hot’

Counter: ‘Unbearable Heat During The Ice Age’: ‘Now that we know that heat causes harsh winters, one can only imagine how hot the last ice age must have been’

Environment Magazine: ‘Back When it Snowed’: ‘Losing Winter: As Climate Change Takes Hold, Our Coldest Season is the first Casualty’

Must See Video: ‘Global warming panic explained’ — ‘How can you disprove global warming? You can’t, that’s how you know it’s true.’

‘Non-falsifiable Hypothesis’: AGW ‘looks like its own self-contained and self-referential lunatic asylum…finding positive proof of climate change in every weather surprise’

UN IPCC’s Michael Oppenheimer on his unused sled in 2000: ‘Oppenheimer even had a tear-jerking personal angle on the ‘absence of snow’ in modern winters [email protected] — NYT quoted ‘Oppenheimer on the pathetic spectacle of the unused sled in his stairwell, symbol of a warming world: ‘I bought a sled in ’96 for my daughter,’ said Oppenheimer, a scientist at the nonprofit Environmental Defense Fund. ‘It’s been sitting in the stairwell, and hasn’t been used. I used to go sledding all the time. It’s one of my most vivid and pleasant memories as a kid, hauling the sled out to Cunningham Park in Queens.’

NASA’s James Hansen claims extreme weather events would not have happened if CO2 had remained at its pre-industrial level of 280 parts per million

New York Times in 2000: ‘Sledding and snowball fights are as out-of-date as hoop-rolling’ — NYT in 2000: ‘But it does not take a scientist to size up the effects of snowless winters on the children too young to remember the record-setting blizzards of 1996. For them, the pleasures of sledding and snowball fights are as out-of-date as hoop-rolling, and the delight of a snow day off from school is unknown.’

NASA in 1999: ‘Winter in the Northern Hemisphere will continue to warm’ Warmists in 2010: ‘Global warming means colder and snowier winters in Europe and North America’ — Nostradamus Science: Warmist predict anything could potentially happen — then any climate event is conveniently ‘consistent’ with their global warming theory!

Hansen’s claims challenged: See Hansen takedown & ‘The ten worst floods in history’

‘Climate Astrology’ Takes Hold: Japanese scientist Kanya Kusano, a Program Director and Group Leader for the Earth Simulator at the Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science & Technology, has publicly declared that man-made climate fear promotion is now akin to “ancient astrology.”

Mathematical physicist Dr. Frank J. Tipler, Prof. of Mathematical Physics, astrophysics, at Tulane University: “Whether the ice caps melt, or expand — whatever happens — the AGW theorists claim it confirms their theory. A perfect example of a pseudo-science like astrology. It is obvious that anthropogenic global warming is not science at all.”

New York Times: Remember when we told you that global warming causes warmer winters? We should have said that global warming causes ‘colder’ winters

ABC News Blames Global Warming for Extreme Cold Temps: Global warming ‘means winters with more snow’ Brutal cold & snow ‘could be the new normal’

Climate Depot Response to ABC News: It is much more likely that witches have caused the record cold than man-made global warming. See: Salem Witch Trials during ‘Little Ice Age’: ‘Women suspected of being witches– were often accused of changing the weather’

UK Guardian Says Global Warming Induced Cold Is The New Normal: ‘That is the great thing about man-made CO2 – all natural phenomenon can be blamed on it’ — ‘And alarmists are allowed to change their mind about the symptoms as many times as they like. Cold wet summers are the future of global warming…8 years ago, team climate was saying that hot, dry summers were the future of global warming’

Global Warming Causing Winters To Simultaneously Get Colder And Warmer — Which is it?! ‘We conclude that the recent decline of Arctic sea ice has played a critical role in recent cold and snowy winters’ Or ‘As winters growwarmer and summers drier, the West’s evergreen forests are being eaten alive’
