Record warm and cold weather: but overall a standstill - Jack Dini, March 19, 2013

“Not even close: 2012 was hottest ever in US,” The New York Times,(1)

“2012: hottest year on record for continental US,” National Geographic Daily News,(2)


“2012 was hottest year on record,” San Francisco Chronicle,(3)

What about some other parts of the world? Have you seen these?

“Germany’s winter temperature trend in a nosedive…now falling 6 C per century!”,(4)

“Deadly cold continues to grip Asia—hundreds dead—subtropical Bangladesh sees coldest temps since the 1960s!”,(5)

“European climate institute:‘Climate in Germany has been cooling for 15 years,’”(6)


Along with the heat in the United States and frigid weather in much of Europe and Asia, there were heat waves in Brazil and Australia. Ironically, if you average all this up, you might come up with no change—and that is precisely what a recent report shows. David Whitehouse observes,“It is incontrovertible that the global annual average temperature of the past decade and in some datasets the past 15 years has not increased.(7)

The Met Office has forecast that there will be no further warming of the planet over the next five years. This downgrading means that by 2017 there is projected to have been no global increase in temperature for almost 20 years.(8)

Whitehouse adds,“Year-on-year fluctuations, and any trend over this period, are within errors of measurement. The only justifiable statistical description of the global temperature during this period is a constant. This standstill has occurred as atmospheric CO2 has increased from 370 ppm to 390 ppm.”(7)

In their zeal to show the United States heating up, media in this country ignored other parts of the world that were not experiencing the same thing. In all three accounts headlined above, no mention was made that some parts of the world were undergoing record cold. It’s as if the world is centered in the good old US and since we experienced a ‘record year’, global warming was verified.

Germany has now had 5 relatively harsh winters in a row. And if that trend continues, things could get a lot worse.(4) The trend of colder winters was also confirmed by a new study of the Swiss Alps.(9)

Britain’s relentless big freeze has sparked fears of the highest winter death rate in five years. The brutal Arctic blast has caused temperatures to plummet amid what could be the coldest March for almost three decades. Pensioner groups warned the death rate among Britain’s elderly has already soared this winter with fears it could hit 30,000.(10)

Asia has been having one of its coldest winters in memory. And the headlines of bitter cold have not been limited to Russia. Siberia, Mongolia, and China add to the list, and also subtropical regions way down in southern Asia. People there have been dying of record cold. Bangladesh is shivering under a record cold wave. In this subtropical country, temperature have fallen to 3 C over the course of one week—the lowest in 45 years.(5)

So, while some parts of the world are seeing record heat, others are seeing record cold. And depending on which side of the global warming debate you are on, there are data to support your position.

Then along come a number of recent reports that say, overall the global temperature of the past 10-15 years has been at a standstill. So, what is one to make of this? Some folks argue that the duration of the standstill is too short to be meaningful. Thirty years is now taken to be the baseline for observing climate changes and fifteen years is too short. David Whitehouse argues that 15 years is not an insignificant period; what happened to make temperatures remain constant requires an explanation.(7)

One whopper is that one renowned IPCC scientist postpones warm winters by up to 100 years!(11) Not a bad idea; if you are going to make prediction like this, you are quite safe since very few folks living today will be around to see if you got it right.

One other point from David Whitehouse’s report,“If the standstill continues for a few more years it will mean that no one who has just reached adulthood, or younger, will have witnessed the Earth get warmer during their lifetime.

So the next time you read about weather issues in the United States, remember that we are only a small fraction of the total area of the world, even though many might think that we are the center of the universe.

I was visiting some new clients yesterday in their homes, as in plural.
I think they might be Muslims, not sure and at this point it doesn't matter, but they appear to be from India. They were speaking Urdu and I heard one of the women use the word 'mashallah'.
Urdu is a mix of Persian and Arabic. They were taken aback when I asked if I had heard correctly what she had said.
They seem like very nice people.

I am wondering about how Obama will close aircraft control towers. For a "scheduled airliner" can land at an airport they must have three things according to the FAR's. The first is an operational control tower. Then comes an operational crash truck/crew and then the runway must be balanced.
A balanced runway is a runway that is long enough for the plane to accelerate to take out speed and, without reversing it's engine and only it's brakes must come to a complete stop. Then the plane has to stand a brake fire for five minutes without damage to the aircraft (besides the brakes/tires). Here is an example.

The Libtards did this last year. They take a picture of the "over flow room" and seem to think it is the main hall where the speech is actually being given.
Ah, were is Trump on the stage in the picture?

No, 40% is not a fringe. Progressives make up only 10% of the electorate and that make YOU part of a fringe movement. Make sure you check out the graph!

"Conservatives" Are Single-Largest Ideological Group
Percentage of "liberals" higher this decade than in early '90s
by Lydia Saad
PRINCETON, NJ -- Thus far in 2009, 40% of Americans interviewed in national Gallup Poll surveys describe their political views as conservative, 35% as moderate, and 21% as liberal. This represents a slight increase for conservatism in the U.S. since 2008, returning it to a level last seen in 2004. The 21% calling themselves liberal is in line with findings throughout this decade, but is up from the 1990s.

1. Several errors? I think not. You,re wrong. Please quote the rule that says it is incorrect to begin a sentence with a conjunction. That is no more incorrect than ending a sentence with a preposition as that rule was made up, and both do not exist. A comma SHOULD follow charitable as it replaces 'and". "You're" is an informal pronoun, dixit Mr WEBSTER. Look it up;
2. Wrong. It is not a sentence fragment, it is part and parcel of a complete sentence;
3. Wrong. No period required after "canvas", as it is a choice between said period and comma. Therefore, "god" need not be capitalized. And should it be, and it need not be, the "G" should be capitalized, not the whole word;
4. Sorry, try as you may, there is not one punctuation error in nu ber4. Incidentally, all your paragraphs, from 1 to 5, should end with a semi-colon, not a period;
5. I can't find number 5. Perhaps it's too early. Do pont it out to me and I'll reply in an isntant.
I think it's sad that a non-anglophone like myself should have to correct you. Your first language is English, correct? It's my second language.
Not beginning a sentence with a conjunction has been a grammar rule since the beginning. A conjunction is a connecting word and can never be used as a starting word for a sentence.
It is never correct to end a sentence with a preposition, regardless of the incorrect grammar being taught in business classes today.
"Look it up;"--It is grammatically incorrect to end a sentence with a semi-colon. You have a habit of doing this.
"You,re wrong"—You used a comma instead of an apostrophe.
sentence;--You used “sentence’ as the end of the sentence yet used a semi-colon instead of a period to end the sentence.
"And should it be, and it need not be, the "G" should be capitalized, not the whole word;"--You incorrectly began a sentence with a conjunction and ended it with a semi-colon, both of which are incorrect.
"nu ber4"-- You misspelled “number” and “number4” should have a space between number and 4.
Pont—You misspelled “point”.
“Isntant” is misspelled.
"should end with a semi-colon, not a period;"--You ended the sentence with a semi-colon, which one can never do.

“It's my second language”—You neglected to put a period at the end of the sentence.
In conclusion, I suggest you learn the rules for punctuation. Correct punctuation is necessary for the reader to get the correct meaning of a sentence.

Are you assuming that only Republicans engage in illegal activity?
Next, the first and third link seem to be good cases for a criminal investigation and prosecution but the second is obviously NOT a crime nor is the forth.
You seem to have a problem with what is and is not a crime.
It is like the New Black Panthers who were caught solitariness murder and kidnapping. They are obviously very serious crimes but Eric Holder will not even investigate. But he did investigate George Zimmerman when there was not even a reliable criminal complaint!
Oh, the case against George Zimmerman seems to be falling apart.
I’m not assuming anything Rogue nor am I suggesting wide spread voter fraud. I’ll leave that up to Republicans. I’ll leave it up to enforcement to determine what is and what’s not voter fraud as well.

As for the NBPP, I link them with the thousand or so other white hate groups you have no idea of which is being investigated or monitored.

And lastly I suppose you assume the Martin family seeking an investigation into their son’s killing is not a reliable complaint.

This is embarrassing but I must correct myself for neglecting to say that the conjunctions one never uses at the beginning of sentences are called coordinating conjunctions. There are different kinds of conjunctions, so I apologize for my omission of that.

Would it matter to you if the potus was put in office, either party, illegally or not? And do you think the birther movement is racially motivated?
Does it matter to you that this president was democratically elected by the people twice?

And yes, some birtherism is racially motivated and obviously some is not. I doubt anyone who accused the Clintons of murder or Bush with being in cahoots with the 911 terrorists could hardly be charged with racism. Some people just go plain nuts when their man is rejected by the people.

Yes, I was angry when the conservative court decided in Bush’s favor, but I moved on and never once tried to make up shit about the man. He ended up doing enough damage on his own.

How nice of you to say that! It's good to see you posting again.

It seems to be a fact that liberals have a dislike for the truth, particularly when it exposes their agendas. The socialists use lying as a necessary tool for accomplishing their goals, as has been proven by Obama, who has perfected the art of lying for political reasons.
