According to global warming scientists, 2014 may be the worst, most apocalyptic year they have experience since the early Nineties. Weather patterns and storm frequency are probably going to continue in the direction they’ve been heading; ice sheet thickness and size anomalies – at both polar caps – show no inclination to change; satellite data indicates that upper and lower altitude atmospheric temperatures are showing an alarming trend; Co2 levels are rising, and its propensity to reflect heat has been confirmed by NASA and the steady 17 year “pause” in warming will, in all likelihood, last through 2030. To cap it all off, one of climate change’s most strident voices turned out to be a greedy, lying, lazy, shiftless charlatan.
All of those hundreds of billions of dollars in study grants and reimbursements are very likely to dry up! What will the climate science gurus do if everything bad they have predicted over the past few decades continues to not happen?
2013 was supposed to be a banner year for global warming scientists and their incomes; dozens of horrible category 4 and 5 storms were expected to rip the east coast off the map. Hurricane frequency along the gulf coast should have swamped all of Texas and Louisiana. Sadly, as luck would have it, 2013 was such a mild year for storms that it almost set the record for consecutive days of nice weather.
Back in Summer 2012, the Northern polar ice cap did its very best to disappear. It shrank down to a delightfully small, record minimum. Passage by boat, across the top of the world, was suddenly possible. Climate change scientists and their eager fans popped corks in celebration. Funding was about to become a problem of the past. A small cadre of “in crowd” scientists – the very people who had been defining the narrative for all these years – seemed destined to control entire economies, by virtue of their waxing influence. If that ice had just remained gone, they could have told the world they were virtually infallible. Their guesses and suggestions would have been treated like edicts! Then, disappointingly, Arctic ice coverage went up 50 percent from 2012 levels in the summer of 2013. It’s likely to get even bigger in 2014, which can only hasten the Apocalypse for the global warming scientists who rely on doom and destruction, for their bread and butter.
Ground based temperature readings have always been faithful about showing a warming trend. Especially when temperature data is collected in big cities full of steel, concrete and asphalt. Places like that retain and amplify heat, like nowhere else. Atmospheric temperature readings measured by satellite are used – sparingly – to create very complex, very expensive, very easily manipulated climate computer models. Those models express the illusion of a sensitive climate system, which is the product of almost completely ignoring physical interpretation of how clouds operate, in terms of cause and effect (forcing and feedback). Now that cloud data is being more vigorously taken into account – by upstart climatologists in denial – the picture emerging is one of an IN-sensitive climate system, dominated by negative feedback. In other words: Clouds hamper warming, and they always have. That information should never have gotten out.
In 2013, NASA released data gathered by Sounding of the Atmosphere using Broadband Emission Radiometry (SABER). SABER was used to monitor a type of emissions, known as infrared emissions, from the upper atmosphere. These emissions are reflected by nitric oxide (NO) and carbon dioxide (CO2); both play a vital role in the energy balance between the upper atmosphere the planet’s surface. They act like the thermostat in a car. When the thermosphere gets hot, those two elements work to reflect that heat energy back into space. They actually aid in keeping the Earth cooler, by sending far more heat away than they hold in. NASA might have had the decency to restrict that information to the climate change scientists of the “in-crowd,” but nooo. They had to go and make their findings public.
Finally, the largest nail in the coffin of climate change: The never-to-be-damned-enough “Pause” in rising temperatures. It has been going on for the better part of 15 years, and best estimates say it will last at least another 20. Government Agencies are beginning to question the wisdom of enacting climate change and “green” policies. They’re saying the proposed taxes and restrictions will only have the most negative of impacts on economic growth, while attempting to correct a problem which isn’t currently happening.
The dangers all these facts represent to the idea of global warming, and the scientists who rake in billions in grant money promoting it, mean 2014 may be the climate change funding Apocalypse.
