Scientists See Summer Full of Global Warming Signs
This summer's wildfires in Russia, floods in Pakistan, torrential rainfall in China and sweltering heat waves in 15 U.S. states are all signs of the effects of global warming identified by scientists in the U.S. Global Change Research Program , according to the Union of Concerned Scientists .

It's becoming more apparent that not only internet climate alarmists are ignoring the stalled jet stream, so is science.
Probably because they don't understand it.

The Hill - Former Vice President Gore is calling for major rallies to protest congressional inaction on climate change.
In a post on his personal blog headlined “The Movement We Need,” Gore linked to and quoted from an Australian wire service report that “tens of thousands of protesters … have taken to the streets across Australia to urge the major political parties to take action on climate change.”
“Across the world, when politicians fail to take action to solve the climate crisis, people are taking action,” Gore wrote.
He added after excerpting the news report:“It is my hope we see activism like this here in the United States.”
Gore noted he trained activists in Australia to deliver the slideshow that formed the basis for the documentary film that won him an Academy Award. A representative of Gore’s Alliance for Climate Protection addressed the rally in Sydney.
Gore has in recent weeks stepped up his criticism of the Senate for its inability to pass a comprehensive energy and climate bill that would put a price on carbon. In a conference call with environmental activists last week, he reportedly said “the United States government in its entirety, largely because of the opposition in the United States Senate to taking action on clean energy and a solution to the climate crisis, has failed us.”
Just when you thought this snake was in permanent hibernation he slithers out of his hole. God forbid we have to listen to the likes of Al “Climate Control” Gore. Obama and Pelosi are all we can barely stand right now.
In the article it talks about the documentary that won an Academy Award for Gore — what a rotten piece of work that was — an entire file whose premise was based on now proven fictional data.
The comprehensive energy and climate bill that Gore is talking about is CAP and TRADE. If passed, all trade credits will go through the Chicago Climate Exchange set up by supporters of Obama (Valerie Jarrett) and good ol’ Al Gore. Gore and his pals, including Obama, are expected to pocket Billions upon Billions of dollars. This is all about money folks through government control of energy — it has nothing to do with improving the environment.

It's OK. Most of the world is starting to ignore the alarmists too. That's what sparked Al Gore's latest tmeper tantrum.

Actually they do understand it.
"The researchers have found strong correlations between weak solar activity and the occurrences of 'blocking'. As the temperature is affected by a weak Sun so the wind's patterns also change and, as the warmer westerly winds fail to arrive, the UK is hit by north-easterlies from the Arctic."
But attribution going back one step is only the start. You have to move it back step by step until you find the root causation and that is difficult. That said, we are starting to make progress on regional climate issues.

That's a relief, no correlation to ACC so far, but give them time, I'm sure that's what they're looking for.
At least it's a start.
For me, impossible.
Your involvement in the process is what, exactly?
You really feel like you're a part of this investigation, don't you?

What dirtling knows is impossible for him to achieve, then for everyone else it must be impossible, too.
