The elegant thing about science is that a single observation can falsify a popular hypothesis.
I find it amazing how perfectly natural factors can explain the el Ninos, and the Super Ninos, but the blame naturally turns to man-made global warming.
James Hansen is falsifying climate alarm right before our eyes.
This year, when winter hits, it is expected to be colder-than-normal across the Northwest, Upper Midwest, and Northeast. These conditions create higher cooling and heating demand for natural gas. And that, coinciding with reduced supply, will give a boost to U.S. natural gas prices—rebalancing the market and bringing price recovery.
Some 300 scientists are calling out the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration for fraud, specifically suspiciously overheated climate temperature book-cooking, for issuing a non-peer-reviewed study for release conveniently in advance of UN Climate Change Conference held in Paris last December. NOAA ignored the large integrated network of Argo ocean buoys operated by the British Oceanographic Data Center in combination with satellite-enhanced data that revealed no statistical warming.
With North Atlantic Ocean surface temperatures "the coldest on record" over the past 80 years, "some" scientists have already blamed 'global warming" for this cooling. Yet the IPCC now admits that 111 of its 114 climate models grossly overpredicted the global warming rate. Meanwhile, 2015 weather will be affected by a sizable, yet normal, "el nino."
Sure, the Earth has been warming for 200 years since the end of the little ice age. On the other hand, increasing carbon dioxide in the atmosphere must not be a major factor, given that the latest warmng tren lasted from about 19745 through 1998, while the small amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere has continued to rise little by litt.e
