Watts Up With That?

Guest Post by Bob Tisdale

This post will serve as part 2 of the 2015 update of the model-data comparisons of satellite-era sea surface temperatures. The 2014 update is here. This, the second part, contains time-series graphs.  But the data and model outputs are being presented in absolute, not anomaly, form.


The climate models used by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) are not simulating climate as it exists on Earth.  That reality of climate models will likely come as a surprise to many climate laypersons.

We presented in part 1 of this series how the spatial patterns of the modeled warming rates for the surfaces of the global oceans from 1982 to 2015 (the era of satellite-enhanced sea surface temperature observations) show no similarities to the spatial patterns of the observed (data-founded) warming and cooling.  And we discussed why it’s important that the models used by…

Sooner of later everyone who believed in CO2- and Climate threat will understand that they faced the worst Scam ever. Follow the money. Money-routes never lie. There must be at least a dozen out there who knows how to write an algoritm if they aren’t in bank-it sphere…..

A divided Supreme Court on Tuesday abruptly halted President Obama’s controversial new power plant regulations, dealing a blow to the administration’s sweeping plan to address global warming.

In a 5-4 decision, the court halted enforcement of the plan until after legal challenges are resolved.

The surprising move is a victory for the coalition of 27 mostly Republican-led states and industry opponents that call the regulations ”an unprecedented power grab.”

By temporarily freezing the rule the high court’s order signals that opponents have made a strong argument against the plan. A federal appeals court last month refused to put it on hold.

The court’s four liberal justices said they would have denied the request.

The plan aims to stave off the worst predicted…

I am surprised that CO2-believers belive that tornados and a possible el Nino in the near future, as well as tempeature changes in the Pacific Ocean should origin from Human activity. Volcanos produce 92 % of all CO2 while active but also for many million/milliard years after acativity died. What’s typical for Volcanos apart from CO2 and SO2 up in the air or water? Magma which always will come from under the Tectonic plates involved in movements causing eruptions isn’t cold as ice 🙂 When you look at the Plates around the Pacific please choose Worlwide as well as 3 days above 2,5 on Richter scale on the wheel up right.

Eathquake map

The worst is that few analytic people around the World lack knowledge to combine how Waves break down respectively strengthens air streams above waterlevel up to atmospheric levels. Airstreams heated by energy from underwater volvanos most certainly don’t chill but heat the air above. In Pacific case we can follow the effect if not on a daily basis then over longer periods mainly in the United States and Indonesia-Japanese weather systems. The thing the CO2-believers call Climate and warmer Earth temperature. Same changes that gave strange weather in Northern Hemisphere from Artic down to east NA over to Europe each time there been increased activity in the region Island – Greenland.

But for those who made CO2 their new Faith, that’s might be to complicated to understand??????

Consensus is a political term – has nothing what so ever to do with science!
Empiri is reality – corrected data used in computer models NEVER EVER is anything bad: Bad input leads to Bad output. That was we systemprogrammers said back in early 1970’s!

Obama unveils major climate change proposal, cnn.com August 3 2015
“Clean Power Plan:” Pres. Obama unveils major climate change proposal, Gov. Walker responds, fox6now.com 2015/08/03

Almost correct facts can be found in one source for data used by IPCC here it is:

Arctic Sea Ice Extant 5 August 2015

BTW…. this gives every single Polar Bear more than 281 square kilometers each to walk alone on! Not at all the lowest value last 30 year…. I guess you know that this means that each Polar Bear have 50% more area to walk on than the area of Washington DC…. 😛

If you President Obama aren’t familiar with Standard Deviations here is the definition:

Standard Deviation

The Standard Deviation is a measure of how spread out numbers are.

Its symbol is σ (the greek letter sigma)

In other word every value up and down from any kind om mean (there are more than one) that falls within the Standard Deviation, is normal – not abnormal in any way…..

Btw the talk that this years reading was the lowest since 1981 in July is a false statement due to corrected not empiric data. I have all the figures needed and same type of ”reading” via satelites show that the lowest empiric value was back in 2006…. as written in the wattsup blogg I have written comments to in Rebogged article – Ocean Heat: New Study Shows Climate Scientists Can Still Torture Data until the Data Confess, wattsup with that 26 July 2015

That’s sad

The CO2-belivers belive but Faith has to do with religion or Faith in a human. They never learnt higher Math, especially not Mathematic Theories, Analyses and never understood that in order to write a systemprogram and or the simplest algoritm, one need to take all important parameters that needs to be answered true into consideration. 7 to 12 of at least 43 NEEDED parameters makes as I wrote above Bad input leads to Bad output. Simple as that.

Science axioms

In Theories of Science it’s never ever possible to prove a thesis right. Only to falsify a thesis

This follows of the most important axiom in Theories of Science:

Each time/period in history needs to rethink and revaluated old accepted theories and thesis from new ”days” advancing analyse methods and/or new facts brought to the ”table”.

Remember that one single black dot on a white paper makes the paper non-white. One single contradiction in a theory is enough for that theory/thesis to be proven wrong.

One single artifact and or factor found in an unexpected place always needs to be folly explained. Or that single artifact/factor leads up to necessarity of formulating a new thesis which includes new knowledge.
Same for thesis in History and Archaeology as for thesis in so called Natural Science.
Implications of falsified Thesis

There are several Fallacies in argumentation, Norah4science page English text to be taken into account when ever someone calls for ”consensus”. Consensus is a political term with no connection what so ever to Theories of Science.

Watts Up With That?

Guest essay by Eric Worrall

beatles-sunh/t DailyCaller – British researchers have claimed that global warming strongly influences our taste in music.

According to FirstPost;

Fancy listening to the Beatles’ ‘Here Comes The Sun’ when you are grinding out yet another long, sweaty heatwave? ”These assumptions we have about certain weather being good and certain weather being bad, like sun being good — that might change,” researcher Karen Aplin of the University of Oxford said at a European Geosciences Union meeting in Vienna.

Aplin and five other scientists combed through databases of more than 15,000 pop songs, finding statistical backing for the assumption that our moods are strongly swayed by the weather. These emotions, in turn, are expressed in the music artists compose and what the public likes to hear.

Only 10% of an Ice berg is to be seen over water….. what we who relay on Reality instead of computer models seen regarding CO2-believers arguments will sooner or later after the Scam-ice melted be worse than anyone thought.
Reality always wins over pseudoscience and political views.

Watts Up With That?

While climate campaigners hope for a big El Nino this year, and wish for more hurricanes to use for ridiculous ”poisoned weather” headlines, the reality is that we are in a hurricane drought, not just in the USA, but globally as well.

Hurricane expert Dr. Ryan Maue points out the current situation in one simple and elegant graph which sums up the slump in activity:

Hurricane_frequency-March2015He writes on his Twitter feed:

5-year running sum of number of global tropical cyclones (1970-2015)
Stuck at 400 — lowest in this 45-year record.

This is backed up by data compiled by Dr. Roger Pielke Jr.:

gtcl-2014The last few years have certainly been low compared to many previous years, especially 1971.

Meanwhile, it has been a record long drought for Cat3 or greater landfalling hurricanes in the USA. This graph shows the number of days from the last Cat3 Hurricane to make…

Uppgifter som cirkulerar i media:

Cirka 2 250 svältande sjölejon, varav de flesta är ungdjur, har spolats upp på södra Kaliforniens stränder så här långt i år. Det är 20 gånger fler än genomsnittet för motsvarande period de senaste tio åren – och dubbelt så många som 2013, det hittills värsta året.

Forskare tror att varmare vatten kopplat till svaga vindar på västkusten ligger bakom djurens massvält. I vanliga fall driver starka vindar upp kallt och näringsrikt vatten från Stilla havets djup till ytan – och med det stora mängder sardiner, bläckfiskar och annan mat åt sjölejonen.

Utan mat tvingas de vuxna honorna ut på djupare vatten för att hitta mat, tror forskare som studerar fenomenet. Kvar på grundare vatten finns ungarna, som inte klarar sig på egen hand och därför tar sig in mot land.Rekordmånga sjölejon strandar i USA, GP 7 april 2015
Rekordmånga sjölejon strandar i USA, Aftonbladet 7 april 2015
Rekordmånga sjölejon strandar i USA, 7 april 2015

Verkligheten är den att sjölejon normalt dyker till 26-74 meters djup men att de kan dyka ända djupare än 200 meter… Det krävs inte att gå ut speciellt långt från land för att hitta 74 meters djup….. Ungdjur lämnar sin moder vid 1 års ålder annars överges de vid den åldern och bildar små – större subgrupper av andra sjölejon i samma ålder. Även dessa ungdjur fångar föda själva. Det har de fått lära sig i tidig ålder. Dyker inte lika djupt som vuxna sjölejon, men tillräckligt djupt för att inte påverkas av ytvattentemperaturer.

Så att hävda att sjölejonen svälter för att vattentemperaturen i vattnet utanför Californiens kust stiger dramatiskt…. det är inte sant. Vilket i och för sig inte förvånar i ljuset av Klimattroendes enögdhet…. För att få att yttemperaturen, observera att strömmar på ytan och strömmar t.ex. 10 meter under resp. djupare inte alls är samma sak och att en uppmätt yttemperatur i vatten inte säger något om vad temperaturen är 10, 30 eller 50 meter under vattenytan.

Som om inte det vore nog, så krävs det för att få ihop påståendet om yttemperaturen i Still Havet längs Californiens kust att man blandar äpplen och päron. Fram till maj 2014 går det bra att använda verkligt uppmätta temperaturer men för att få ihop ekvationen krävs det att man byter ut verkligt uppmätta värden vid varje uppmätt ort med satellitmätningens reflexionsvärden. 😛

Lite fakta:
When diving deep, California sea lions slow their heart rates to allow them to remain underwater for nearly ten minutes before surfacing to breathe. This ability gives them an edge in the pursuit of the fish, squid, and shellfish that make up their primary diet.California Sea Lion, animals.nationalgeographic.com

Fundering: Källa saknas i flertalet artiklar. Där den finns hänvisas t.ex. i Tusentals sjölejon riskerar att dö i Kalifornien, DN 7 april 2015 hänvisas till Starving Sea Lions Washing Ashore By Hundreds in California, New Times 2015/03/13,

Det finns ett verkligt Miljöhot i Stilla Havet som i alla världshav och vattendrag. Utsläpp från land, människovållat och pga erosion som sprids med vind samt vatten, utsläpp från båtar samt utsläpp av gaser samt mineraler när tektoniska plattor kolliderar, jordbävning, och vid vulkanutbrott på land samt i hav.

Det sägs att många av sjölejon har lunginflammation. Inte konstigt med de föroreningar som finns i kustnära områden längs Californiens stränder. Flera av de kemikalier som läcker ut samt nanopartiklar från plast har som en av riskerna för de fiskar samt havsdjur som får i sig sådant vatten att råka ut för lunginflammation. (Vilket även hänt i svenska vatten för fisk i samband med utsläpp – t.ex. Svartån Östergötland 1957)

When ever “map” and “reality” show different views – Reality rules. BUT and that’s also important to tell directly:

* Consensus is a political term with no connection what so ever to Theories of Science.

* Appealing to fear is a fallacie when used combined with Ad Hoc/Ad Hominem. Ad Hoc/Ad Hominem with or without “computer model”-views NEVER EVER CAN BE USED AS VALID ARGUMENT

CO2 ”figures” from Mauna Loa
First of all – CO2 readings on Mauna Loa is done not for CO2-believers/”scientists” but for geological purpose to be able to have a pre-warning of next vulcano eruption! This had been the case all over the world after terrible volcano eruption of St. Helena eruption May 18, 1980

What the so called scientists of IPCC forgotten, is a simple fact that Volcanos always leak a large amont of CO2 into the air during active and after active period. The higher leaking the larger force within. Using ”data” from Mauna Loa is the same as When the fox counts the chickens

* The North Pole.
Peary and Henson reached according to their own data (!) North Pole 1909;
Nobile, Amundsen and Ellsworth considered to have flown over the North Pole 1926 (Zeppelin) and Sir Wally Herbert was leading the first scientific expedition up the North Pole in 1969 (!!!!) .

Don’t forget that ice-cores drilled down from surface in Arctic never ever show the situation on same spot, longitude and latitude, ten years ago let alone 50 or more. The ice in Arctic is never still but moves around, due to centrifugal force as well as the water cycle, as all forms of water do, including the glaciers and icesheets. All form of water including ice moves to reach the lowest possible level, to sea level. For information re. Arctic ice movements please look at with Nansen’s Fram expedition in Arctic. There you will find Fram’s movements during the time the ship was frozen in the ice up to the time it finally reached open water.
It’s not possible to drill ice cores in Arctic showing the weather situation for one and the same place, and even if this had been the case no cores could in have given correct information of the wind-, solar-and temperature erosion for any given year let alone for a serie of years.

Guest essay by Ronald Voisin

(for the near perfect ice-core recordation enthusiasts)

This essay is a promised follow-up to a 1/25/2015 WUWT posting (here).

Some of the WUWT commenters from the initial posting questioned the validity of a 200 yearlong 100% spike in atmospheric CO2. So I’ll begin this follow-up with a defense of that supposition.

It is quite clear that Natural CO2 emission (and atmospheric spiking) is stimulated by any global temperature increase no matter the cause of that increase. The ~1.5oC global temperature rise, since the Little Ice-Age, can reasonably be estimated to stimulate an increase in several of the natural CO2 sources by as much as 2X (in particular the biologic natural sources). See Table 1 below.

Table 1

Here are the primary sources of natural CO2 release in decreasing order of quantity of carbon emitted: oceanic release…

When will they ever learn? IF NASA:s figures this time is accurate, Which isn’t proven, Their own lines regarding lowest sea-ice is false!

According to official figures for Polar Bears counting, not interest organisations of CO2-believers, there are around 22 000 polar bears, not 25 000, but that doesn’t matter –

In March 2011 each Polar Bear alone (counted on 22 000 individs) had 634 square kilometers alone to walk on.
Today they have 636 square kilometers….. As far as I know 636 is more than 634? 😛

Anyhow you can compare with Manhattan 58,8 km² respectively New York City 783,66 km² (land) thus you see that each Ice Bear have more than 80% of NYC area to walk on sea ice alone if anyone of them wants to…….

From the University of Washington and the department of unbearable press releases:

First global review on the status, future of Arctic marine mammals

For Arctic marine mammals, the future is especially uncertain. Loss of sea ice and warming temperatures are shifting already fragile Northern ecosystems.

The precarious state of those mammals is underscored in a multinational study led by a University of Washington scientist, published this week in Conservation Biology, assessing the status of all circumpolar species and subpopulations of Arctic marine mammals, including seals, whales and polar bears. The authors outline the current state of knowledge and their recommendations for the conservation of these animals over the 21st century.

”These species are not only icons of climate change, but they are indicators of ecosystem health, and key resources for humans,” said lead author Kristin Laidre, a…
