Morano takes down “extreme weather” witchcraft on Sun TV

Morano: “They try to imply that modern weather is unprecedented or getting worse.  The facts don’t bear it out… You can talk about droughts, which are showing no trend over 60 years.  Floods which are showing no trend up to 115 years.  Hurricanes, which are at historic lows with the lowest accumulated cyclone energies we’ve ever measured, the longest period since the U.S. Civil War without a category 3 or larger hitting.”  In the U.S., heat waves and fires are both down.

    These puppets can condescend and bully all they wish, they still can’t support their claim.

    There is no evidence decreasing carbon dioxide will cut down on adverse climate events. However, burning witches at the stake has shown to be an effective means of climate control in the past.
    During the Medieval Warming Period (1350-1850), advancing glaciers were destroying numerous villages in mountainous parts of Central Europe. It was thought witches caused the glacier advance and so the proposed solution for stopping the advances was burning witches at the stake. It is reported over 10,000 witches were burned at the stake from 1450 to 1550 and one of the Pope’s approved this solution. This response was a success because the glacier advancing stopped at the end of the 17th century. Maybe a little time delay. But effect proves solution to cause.
    Burning witches at a stake may be carbon neutral in the eyes of climate alarmists. The wood came from carbon dioxide and I think a case can be made humans contain a substantial amount of carbon whose origin was carbon dioxide.

  • So what was 2013 really like – climate-wise – on the scale of recent years? Provisional rankings are coming out, but the real result won’t be known for a month or so.

    Here’s one from the Japanese Meteorological Agency, which is a bit scary. You can read more at: http://ds.data.jma.go.jp/tcc/tcc/news/press_20131224.pdf

    Provisionally they reckon it was the second hottest year ever. Phew!

    They say …

    The annual anomaly of the global average surface temperature for the year 2013 (i.e. the combined average of the near-surface air temperature over land and the sea surface temperature) is estimated at +0.20°C* above the 1981-2010 average, likely to become the second warmest record for the 123-year period since 1891 (Figure 1). This is only a preliminary result that was calculated based on temperature observations for the period of January to November in 2013.

    And according to the American NOAA, “… November’s warmth catapulted the year-to-date to the 4th warmest year on record, up from the 7th warmest, which is where it stood as of the end of October. That puts 2013 on track to be the warmest year on record without an El Niño event, depending on where December temperatures rank.”

    As noted by NOAA, this provisionally very high ranking has even been achieved during ENSO neutral conditions (El Niño Southern Oscillation). Generally global temperatures rise with El Niño, and with 2013 being so highly ranked it is worrying, as during this time we’ve either had slight La Niña, or just neutral conditions. Why? Because the waters in the eastern tropical regions of the Pacific have been notably cooler in recent years, owing to the effects of one of the world’s biggest ocean circulatory systems, the Pacific decadal oscillation. So it’s been a very hot year – all things considered. Welcome to global warming.

    Meanwhile across the ditch it’s been the hottest year ever. You can read about it at:

    The Guardian says …

    “Australia experienced its hottest year on record in 2013, the Bureau of Meteorology has confirmed, with temperatures 1.2C above the long-term average. The bureau said the new high, which breaks the record set in 2005 by 0.17C, “continues the trend” of steadily rising temperatures in Australia, which has seen the country warm by about 1C since 1950.”
