YouTube Putting Pointless Labels On Climate Videos

When Wikipedia are the arbiters of what is or isn’t truth 🤔

PA Pundits - International

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~

The lefty BuzzFeed News has a long article saying that YouTube is beginning to label videos related to the climate with a statement that the Earth is warming. Since this fact is not a matter of debate the labels are pointless. Since the videos from both sides get labeled the same, labeling is meaningless. The clueless alarmists think this is some sort of improvement.

The label simply says this: “Global warming, also referred to as climate change, is the observed century-scale rise in the average temperature of the Earth’s climate system and its related effects. Multiple lines of scientific evidence show that the climate system is warming.” In short the Earth is warming.

I have logged over 700 YouTube videos that are skeptical of climate change alarmism and not one argues that the Earth is not warming. The debate is entirely about the…

Something Strange Happening to Noctilucent Clouds

Dr Tony Phillips writes; Something unusual is happening in Earth's upper atmosphere. Normally in August, summertime noctilucent clouds (NLCs) begin to fade as weather conditions in the mesosphere disfavor the formation of meteor-seeded ice crystals. This August, however, NLCs are going strong. Just this morning, Gordon Mackie witnessed a bright display over Caithness, Scotland: "It … Continue reading Something Strange Happening to Noctilucent Clouds

Why is Heathrow so hot?

From the article:

Cities tend to hang on to the heat for longer, which can push up temperatures by a few degrees, he says.

TonyB commented last year on UHI and CET;

I use CET in my own reconstructions of historic temperatures, currently to 1538

The met office are very helpful. I have met with David parker there who compiled Hadley CET to 1772 following on from manleys work to 1660. He subsequently sent me a variety of PDF’s regarding the location of the stations. I also met with Richard betts and have looked at Records in both the library and archives.

Britain is a small place. Arguably with a population of sixty million crammed into a space the size of new York state, it could be argued the whole of our island Is potentially affected by uhi for the last century and allowance needs to be made for this, especially over the last few decades
Ringway was the most obviously affected station beyond the 0.2 allowed for by the met office. I suspect that a substantially greater amount should therefore have been allowed for and this may have lowered the peak we saw in cet at the turn of the century.

Hubert lamb once said about historic reconstructions that ‘we can understand the tendency but not the precision’ in other words it allows us to see the general trend but we should not expect to be able to parse temperatures to fractions of a degree.

Instead of recognising this we quibble every year or so when a new record is set by a few tenths of a degree. There’s a reason many people avoid London on a really hot summers day and it’s not climate change.

Tallbloke's Talkshop

In the report ‘hottest day ever’ must mean ‘since the weather station was installed’, but we’re used to this kind of excitable exaggeration in BBC climate reporting. At least they are admitting the obvious here, that Heathrow has certain heat-related factors built-in.

It’s Europe’s busiest airport, says BBC News, and as well as attracting millions of passengers could Heathrow also be a magnet for the sizzling heat?

It’s the Atlantic Stupid, Joe Bastardi on the European Heatwave

Europe heat wave attribution to man-made climate change is the same kind of nonsense we saw with the hot dry summers of 2010-12 (and it’s showing up again where and when it gets hot everywhere around the planet). Still, on the bright side, it gives me a chance to show what we know and how … Continue reading It’s the Atlantic Stupid, Joe Bastardi on the European Heatwave

Dr. Indrani Roy on Solar and Climate Cycles

A really interesting paper;

Our result suggests the latest rapid decline of sea ice around the Arctic in the recent winter decade/season could also have contributions from the current weaker solar cycle. The last 14 years are dominated by solar Min years and have only one Max. This is unlike other previous years, where the number of Max and Min years were evenly distributed (five each). The cumulative effect from the past 13 solar Min years could have played a role in the current record decline of the last winter, 2017. The current weaker solar cycle may also have contributions on increase in winter snow cover around the Eurasian sector.

Science Matters

The last solar eclipse was in 2017. The totality in the picture lasted a little more than 2 minutes, while the process lasted about 2.5 hours.

One of the great disputes in climate research is between those (IPCC) who dismiss solar cycles as a factor in climate change and those who see correlations in the past and keep seeking to understand the mechanisms. To be clear, there is considerable agreement that earth’s atmosphere can and does reduce or increase the amount of incoming solar energy (albedo effect), thereby contributing to surface warming or cooling. The science and research into the “global dimming and brightening” is discussed in the post Nature’s Sunscreen.

The above image of the eclipse is intended to remind us that humans down through history have been terrified of the sun going dark because they knew intuitively that no sun means no life. A more modern and sophisticated…
