Debunking the Lies of the AMS. Guest post By Joe Bastardi
Okay lets go point by point in the first paragraph of their lies
AMS statement : How is climate changing?
Earth’s climate is now unambiguously warming, according to many different kinds of evidence. Observations show increases in globally averaged air and ocean temperatures, as well as widespread melting of snow and ice and rising globally averaged sea level. Temperature data for Earth as a whole, including readings over both land and ocean, show an increase of about 0.8°C (1.4°F) over the period 1901-2010 and about 0.5°C (0.9°F) over the period 1979-2010 (the era for which satellite-based temperature data are routinely available). Due to natural variability, not every year is warmer than the preceding year globally, but every decade since the 1970s has been warmer than the previous decade. All of the 10 warmest years in the global temperature records up to 2011 have occurred since 1997, with 2005 and 2010 being the warmest two years on record in more than a century of global records. The warming trend is greatest in northern high latitudes, over land, and at night. In the U.S., most of the observed warming has occurred in the West and in Alaska; for the nation as a whole, the last decade has seen more than twice as many record daily high temperatures as record daily low temperatures.
Joe’s response : Here are the last 15 years of global temps and then 3 year trend since the pdo flipped along with the co2 continued rise
The temperature at 400 mb where the IPCC trapping hot spot was supposed to occur is 3rd coldest in the last 10 years, after having said a record low earlier this year ( aqua line)
Northern hemispheric snow is well above normal As it responds to the PDO flip
global sea ice is slightly above normal
the Norwegian site has the northern hemisphere near the 30 yr running mean ( slightly above)
The US site a bit below
[Even NSIDC is now showing ice near normal]
but obviously we are not going to be ice free this summer and will not even drop as low as last year, which DID NOT ACCORDING TO REALITY drop to levels seen in 2007.
Finally the southern hemisphere is ABOVE NORMAL which is why global sea ice is near normal
and by the way, in spite of all the warmth in the US this winter, the global temp is STILL BELOW NORMAL for the year
EVERY ONE OF YOUR POINTS ON TEMPS AND ICE ARE WRONG
There has been no major sea level rise and to the contrary, since the PDO shift its fallen. Rises in the equatorial west pacific ARE BECAUSE OF THE LA NINA AND THE TRADES BEING STRONGER THAN NORMAL, PILING WARM WATER UP.
Whats more you seem oblivious to what is forecasted to happen this fall and winter by the very climate models you seem to put all your faith in
With the winter that is coming, what are you going to say after that.. Oh I know, you will use the same nonsense you did after we got hammered in 09-10. Its climate change
Such drivel in the face of facts on your part makes me glad I never joined the AMS. Whats more its members should ask in the face of the reality we are facing, why would anyone put out such a piece of nonsense unless they had not looked at what is going on , or were simply assuming its members would not
If you think this is cherry picking, its because the orchard is loaded!joe bastardi on climate
