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…

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.

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?

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…

New England’s Heat Wave Of 1911

OMG the globe is on fire…. 107 years ago!

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/1911_United_Kingdom_heat_wave

NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT

By Paul Homewood

We often get carried away by climate statistics, but here’s the human story behind the deadly 1911 heat wave in New England:

image

The July 1911 heat wave killed thousands of New Englanders and sent many over the brink of madness.

During 11 hellish days, horses dropped in the street. Babies didn’t wake up from their naps. Boats in Providence Harbor oozed pitch and began to take on water. Tar in the streets bubbled like hot syrup. Trees shed their leaves, grass turned to dust and cows’ milk started to dry up.

In every major northeastern city, the sweltering heat drove people to suicide.

On July 4, temperatures hit 103 in Portland, 104 in Boston (a record that still stands), 105 in Vernon, Vt., and 106 in Nashua, N.H., and Bangor, Maine. At least 200 died from drowning, trying to cool off in rivers, lakes, ponds and…

The truth behind the Baffin Bay starving polar bear video is worse than we thought

This is what propaganda looks like

polarbearscience

Remember that video of an emaciated Baffin Island polar bear that went viral last December? In an unexpected follow-up (“Starving-Polar-Bear Photographer Recalls What Went Wrong“; National Geographic, August 2018 issue), photographer Cristina Mittermeier makes some astonishing admissions that might just make you sick.

Baffin Island starving pb headline_GlobalNews_8 Dec 2017

It turns out they didn’t just come across the dying bear the day it was filmed: it was spotted at least two days earlier by Paul Nicklen. He must have had a satellite phone with him when he saw the bear but the only call he made was to his film crew — he made no attempt to find a local conservation officer to euthanize the bear, which would have been the right thing to do.

The bear’s emaciated, near-death stagger1 was simply too tantilizing to pass up (video needs action: an emaciated dead bear would not been nearly as effective). Mittermeier claims they…

Booker: Yes it’s scorching, but not climate change

CO2 is such magical stuff that it’s causing the high pressure bringing the cold in South America 😂

The occasional hot summer in the UK is nothing new. There was one in 1976 and, as Booker points out, a particularly hot one as long ago as 1846. As usual the behaviour of the jet stream is a major factor.

Yes it’s scorching, but claims that the heatwave is down to climate change are just hot air: June was even hotter when Victoria was on the throne, writes CHRISTOPHER BOOKER for the Daily Mail.

There is at least one thing about this summer of 2018 on which we can all agree: the past months have unquestionably been swelteringly, abnormally hot.

Weather Warning For Snowflakes

Surely this is such a threat that the population must be in decline from all these weather threats… 😆

NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT

By Paul Homewood

The Met Office has been lampooned after it issued nanny state advice warning Brits to stay indoors for days on end as a Mediterranean heatwave melts the country.

There was an official amber advisory put out on Monday morning telling people not to leave the house for hours every day until Friday.

But millions of Brits defied the warning and flocked to beaches and parks across the country before blasting the weather service for trying to spoil summer and promote a ‘soft Britain’.

Many social media users tagged the Met Office on Twitter and asked how they were meant to get to work and pay the bills if they’re stuck inside all day.

Many Brits were baffled by the Met Office’s warning, with Nick Lyskov rightly pointing out: ‘You don’t go on holiday and sit inside do you?!’

Tommy Roberts wrote: ‘State of this country. Instead of…
