James Hansen (NASA) Admits Global Temperature Standstill Is Real

"Mean Global Temperature Has Been Flat For The Last Decade"

The GWPF has been right all along. In a new report Hansen, Sato and Ruedy (2013) acknowledge the existence of a standstill in global temperature lasting a decade. This is a welcome contribution to the study of global temperature. When others reached the same conclusion they have been ridiculed; so this admission should provide some pause for reflection by those who have attacked the very idea of a recent temperature standstill, often without understanding the data, focusing on who was making the argument and their alleged non-scientific motives. The bottom line is that the recent global temperature standstill is a real event. David Whitehouse, The Global Warming Policy Foundation, 17 January 2013

Isn't it funny that the NSIDC stopped "reporting" Antarctic ice conditions since about 2007? But the NSIDC's data was used to make THIS report!!!
That is called selective reporting. The NSIDC will only report data which supports their agenda

ANTARCTIC SEA ICE EXTENT AT RECORD HIGH

Date: 24/08/13 The Antarctic Sun
Antarctic sea ice extent in mid-August reached a record or near-record level high at 18.7 million square kilometers, according to the National Snow and Ice Data Center.
The positive growth of total sea ice extent around Antarctica, which averages 18 million square kilometers at the height of winter, is part of a long-term trend and is consistent with how scientists believe climate change affects the southernmost continent.[See previous article — Record extent: 2010 climate report notes Antarctic sea ice grows while world warms.]

CLIMATE LEAKS ARE ‘MISLEADING’ SAYS IPCC AHEAD OF MAJOR REPORT

Date: 24/08/13 Matt McGrath, BBC News
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has warned against drawing too many conclusions from the latest leaked version of its upcoming, and eagerly awaited, Assessment Report 5 (AR5).
This massive tome will be published in four stages over the next year – the first part, the physical science behind climate change, will be presented in Stockholm on 26 September.

The process of compiling this report – with several hundred scientists, 195 governments and over 100 non-governmental organisations involved – has been particularly leaky, with at least three confidential drafts being made public in the last year.

According to the latest scoop, the scientists are set to say they are more convinced than ever that global warming is caused by humans. They will say they are 95% certain that our use of fossil fuels is the main reason behind the global rise in temperatures since the 1950s.

The panel will also outline why global temperatures have been rising more slowly since 1998, a controversial slowdown that scientists have been struggling to explain.

Sensitive questions

According to the leak, they will put it down to natural meteorological variations and other factors that could include greater absorption of heat into the deep oceans – and the possibility that the climate is less sensitive to carbon dioxide than had previously been believed.

Many climate sceptics have argued that this is a key factor behind the temperature slowdown, and a good reason not to believe the more extreme predictions of those they dismiss as warmist conspirators.

But those involved with the IPCC say that even now, just a month away from publication, you would be “foolish in the extreme” to take this latest leak as conclusive.

“It is guaranteed it will change,” said Jonathan Lynn, spokesman for the IPCC.“In September, the scientists will go through the 15-page summary for policymakers, line by line.”

CLIMATE CHANGE MADE SEA LEVELS FALL IN 2010 AND 2011, CLIMATE SCIENTISTS CLAIM

Date: 21/08/13 Lewis Page, The Register
Global warming and climate change are usually thought to mean that world sea levels will rise, perhaps disastrously. But according to US government boffins, in recent times (2010 and 2011, to be precise) phenomena driven by human carbon emissions have actually caused world sea levels to fall.
The seas have, of course, been rising steadily as the climate has changed for thousands of years, ever since the end of the last ice age. During the 20th century, according to estimates mostly from erratic tide gauges, sea levels rose by around 1.7mm a year. Since the early 1990s, satellites have also been used to measure sea levels, and by contrast have suggested a steady unchanging rise of about 3mm annually – that is, until 2010.

According to a statement issued yesterday by the US National Science Foundation:
For an 18-month period beginning in 2010, the oceans mysteriously dropped by about seven millimeters.

This is pretty wacky, as warming ocean temperatures ought to mean that the oceans expand. Furthermore, there’s no disagreement about the fact that the world’s ice sheets and glaciers have been steadily melting for a long time – otherwise Europe would still be covered in ice. And there’s no reason they’d suddenly stop melting. So how could sea levels actually godown?

In short, it’s probably human-caused climate change that did it: specifically the Australian flooding of 2010 and 2011, which is generally thought by climate scientists to be at least partly attributable to rising atmospheric carbon levels caused by human fossil-fuel burning.

“It’s a beautiful illustration of how complicated our climate system is,” says John Fasullo of the US National Center for Atmospheric Research.

“The smallest continent in the world can affect sea level worldwide.”

Australia’s dry Outback interior, being ringed to a large extent by coastal mountains, doesn’t tend to let go of any rain once it’s got some: and in 2010 and 2011, huge amounts of rain fell there. Essentially, an awful lot of the world’s oceans turned into clouds and then fell on Australia – and stayed there.

The NSF boffins explain how this came about

2013 IS A RECORD LOW YEAR FOR U.S. TORNADOES

Date: 19/08/13 Anthony Watts, Watts Up With That
While many climate alarmists still try to tell us that global warming will increase tornadoes, we are in the middle of a tornado drought, and well below normal. Normally we’d see 1221 tornadoes in the USA, so far for 2013, only 716 have been reported.

Humm, why do we know that four Navy combat ships have been deployed closer to Syria? And why is there no aircraft carrier accompanying them? The movement of Navy ships is ... classified!
First of all, Obama has no intentions of launching a strike while the U.N has investigators in Syria. So why the ships? Obama is just trying to act tough is all.
Oh, the reason why there are no aircraft carriers in the Mediterranean is that we are short on aircraft carriers and do not have enough to also cover the Med. We are down to ten aircraft carriers. Two are refueling their reactors and that takes six months. We have another two is short term repairs (2-4 mounts) and two in training cycle and that leaves only four carriers that are deployed.
Obama chose to take the USS Enterprise out of service two years early so he could divert money to other, none military, projects.
There is nothing like see an American aircraft carrier task force off of your coast!

U.N.’s Syria team says vehicle shot at by snipers

DAMASCUS, Syria (AP)— A U.N. spokesman says a vehicle belonging to a team investigating the Syrian regime’s alleged use of chemical weapons has been “deliberately shot at multiple times” by unidentified snipers in Damascus.
Martin Nesirky, who is spokesman for U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, says the Monday shooting occurred in the buffer zone area between rebel- and government-controlled territory.

He says the team will return to the area after replacing the vehicle.
The team plans to visit the site in the suburbs of Damascus where an alleged chemical weapon attack occurred last week, reportedly killing hundreds.

You're a military expert, Rogue. Tell us what carriers would accomplish off Syria that fighters, fighter-bombers, and reconnaissance aircraft could not accomplish from their bases in Spain, Italy, Germany and a handful of Eastern European countries, plus Turkey, as per the bombing of Libya. Does the US intend bombing Syria? No? Then why aircraft carriers? Why any fleet at all? Both sides in Syria are fanatical, they are NOT impressed.

Well dah, I SURE the F-do! Do you??? I know that Antarctica contains over 90% of all fresh water ice and 80% of all fresh water and that Antarctica has been gaining ice mass. In fact since they started to use satellites in 1977 there is more fresh water ice than EVER recorded!!!
Now, why does the NSIDC no longer report Antarctic ice conditions? Is it because the data would conflict with their agenda?!?

P.S.: Only the US and France have working carriers. Why does the US need carriers so badly whereas other major nations don't even have one working example? The U.S. is no longer the world's policeman, nor does it wish to be. Pretty much a bipartisan feeling in both houses I believe.
