Piers Corbyn criticizes Prof Stephen Hawking for backing #ClimateHoax 

Piers Corbyn comment on Prof Stephen Hawking reported interview ITV Morning show 20 March with PiersMorgan – for consideration by Prof Hawking and his team.

“Prof Hawking spoke alarmist delusional nonsense on so-called (ManMade) Climate Change and as a leading world scientist failed in his duty to support evidence-based scientific principles. Science shows CO2 levels are an EFFECT NOT A CAUSE of natural changes in climate. This is spelt out in the pdf:

http://bit.ly/2iIoMXN  

 “The FACT is there is no real-world evidence that CO2 levels drive temperatures but a million years of data shows the connection is the other way, namely that world sea temperatures control CO2 levels which ARE OBSERVED TO FOLLOW sea temperatures by some hundreds of years. The reason is basic Physics. The oceans which hold about 50x the CO2 of the atmosphere can hold a bit more when colder and less when warmer (just like warming a fizzy drink causes CO2 to come off). So (under Henry’s Law of gas-liquid solvent equilibrium) CO2 is driven from the sea to the air as temperatures rise – a process which happens with a delay of some hundreds of years due to slow ocean circulation. The rise in CO2 levels now are probably a delayed effect of the Medieval warm period

“The idea that CO2 is in any way driving temperatures in recent decades is also shown to be absurd by the fact that the natural cycles of temperature eg 22yrs60yrs are NOT present in CO2 which is supposedly, under the CO2 warmist theory, driving temperature changes. CO2 levels are just slowly rising without the fluctuations observed in temperature.

“It is also a FACT that the various extreme weather events in recent years are not evidence of causation by rising CO2 which is happening at the same time but actually evidence AGAINST the CO2 theory. The extremes, including temporary Arctic ice reductions at times are caused by the wild Jet stream (and associated ocean current circulations). These wild North-South variations in the Jet Stream are the opposite of the general poleward shifted Jet Stream of a generally warmed world predicted by the CO2 theory. In fact these wild JetStream patterns were predicted under my WeatherAction solar-activity – solar-wind ideas in 2008 and totally nothing to do with CO2.

“Prof Hawking and your team, please consider these points and if you have actual evidence that CO2 levels are a cause of climate changes rather than an effect then let me and the world know. If you cannot do that then cease being used by the globalization lobby to promote a delusional theory which is a key ideological pillar of de-industrialization of USA and Europe – and instead stand up for science.”

“On other points you made you must know it to be untrue that you would be unwelcome in the USA because you have criticisms of President Trump. Millions enter the USA who have different views to him. 

“It was also unhelpful of you, as a Labour voter, to sound critical of my brother when despite his forcing the govt to do many u-turns the Tory press denounce him every day beccause they fear the good he will bring to the UK as Prime Minister”.

“As a matter of common interest you and I had the same Physics teacher in different schools. Kieth Reynolds a superbly inspirational dedicated teacher first taught you then moved to my school, Adams’ Grammar school, Newport Shropshire where I learned a huge amount from him.”

Watts Up With That?

Graphic: The relentless rise of carbon dioxide

Ancient air bubbles trapped in ice enable us to step back in time and see what Earth’s atmosphere, and climate, were like in the distant past. They tell us that levels of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere are higher than they have been at any time in the past 400,000 years. During ice ages, CO2 levels were around 200 parts per million (ppm), and during the warmer interglacial periods, they hovered around 280 ppm (see fluctuations in the graph). In 2013, CO2 levels surpassed 400 ppm for the first time in recorded history. This recent relentless rise in CO2 shows a remarkably constant relationship with fossil-fuel burning, and can be well accounted for based on the simple premise that about 60 percent of fossil-fuel emissions stay in the air.

Today, we stand on the threshold…

NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT

http://dailycaller.com/2017/03/21/nonprofits-angry-about-trumps-budget-cuts-hid-the-179-million-they-took-from-the-epa/

From the Daily Caller:

Six nonprofit groups that criticized President Donald Trump’s proposed budget cuts failed to mention the nearly $179 million in Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) grants they’ve received since 2009, according to a Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group (The DCNF) analysis of federal spending data.

The agency has funded thousands of such groups since former President Barack Obama’s 2009 inauguration, but The DCNF focused only on six of the largest nonprofit recipients in its analysis of grant data compiled by the watchdog Open The Books.

Watts Up With That?

From Penn State, and the “close but no cigar” department (see bold in text) comes this modelspalooza masquerading as science:

On the is an image of the global circulation pattern on a normal day. On the right is the image of the global circulation pattern when extreme weather occurs. The pattern on the right shows extreme patterns of wind speeds going north and south, while the normal pattern on the left shows moderate speed winds in both the north and south directions.

Unprecedented summer warmth and flooding, forest fires, drought and torrential rain — extreme weather events are occurring more and more often, but now an international team of climate scientists has found a connection between many extreme weather events and the impact climate change is having on the jet stream.

NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT

By Paul Homewood

Those who know much better than us would like to return the world’s climate to pre-industrial conditions.

They seem to think the climate was perfect then. Perhaps they should study a bit of history, such as this snippet from HH Lamb’s Climate, History and the Modern World:

POTENT CORONAL HOLE FACES EARTH

From SpaceWeather:

A canyon-shaped hole in the sun’s atmosphere is facing Earth, and it is spewing a stream of fast-moving solar wind toward our planet.  NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory photographed the giant fissure on March 25th:

 A gaseous stream flowing from this coronal hole is expected to reach our planet on during the late hours of March 27th and could spark moderately-strong G2-class geomagnetic storms around the poles on March 28th or 29th. 

We’ve seen this coronal hole before.  In early March, it lashed Earth’s magnetic field with a fast-moving stream that sparked several consecutive days of intense auroras around the poles. The coronal hole is potent because it is spewing solar wind threaded with “negative polarity” magnetic fields. Such fields do a good job connecting to Earth’s magnetosphere and energizing geomagnetic storms.

Arctic Inversions and Intrusions

An increase in the frequency of intrusions can therefore drive bottom-amplified warming trend even in the absence of sea ice loss. In addition, the intrusions themselves drive sea ice retreat in the marginal zone and thus promote the upward turbulent fluxes that help produce bottom-amplified warming.

Science Matters

An earlier post Arctic Ice Factors discussed how ice extent varies in the Arctic primarily due to the three Ws: Water, Wind and Weather. There are other posts on the details of Water and Wind linked below at the end, but this post looks at some ordinary and repeating Weather events in the Arctic that influence ice formation. An interesting new study prompted this essay, but first some background on heat exchange observations in the Arctic.

ARCTIC SEA ICE —2017 MAXIMUM—

Nice update Caleb and the sleepy sun look is intriguing. The next few years look like they will offer much for both sides of the political climate divide, but simple humble observers of truth can watch in awe.

Sunrise's Swansong

Barring any last minute peaks, it looks like the sea-ice has reached its yearly maximum.

DMI4 0322 osisaf_nh_iceextent_daily_5years_en

This maximum is about the same as last year, but, because it is among the lowest in the satellite record, I suppose those still involved in the battles with Alarmists should step back and allow them a period of rejoicing. I have never exactly seen the reason for rejoicing, considering they believe low sea-ice signifies the immanent demise of the planet, but I don’t like to spoil other’s fun.

I personally don’t think these slight variations matter as much as others do, and am far more interested in the effects the Quiet Sun. Therefore I have retired from the Climate Wars. However, for those of you still involved, I recommend that, if the celebrating gets too in-your-face and overbearing, the eyebrow approach should be utilized.

This involves listening and nodding, but with overly sympathetic eyebrows…
