Mainstream Press Ignores Devastating New Global Warming Study

I Google the term “Global Warming” in Google’s news section everyday and have for the last 5 years. I was excited to search today to see what impact Anthony Watts important new study had on the news cycle. When I searched today however I was surprised to see that NO mainstream “news” channel had picked it up. Instead the main story was how Richard Muller had turned from a global warming denier to believer in global warming.

New study shows half of the global warming in the USA is artificial

The new improved assessment, for the years 1979 to 2008, yields a trend of +0.155C per decade from the high quality sites, a +0.248 C per decade trend for poorly sited locations, and a trend of +0.309 C per decade after NOAA adjusts the data. This issue of station siting quality is expected to be an issue with respect to the monitoring of land surface temperature throughout the Global Historical Climate Network and in the BEST network.

What’s Up With Watts Up With That?

Media says Greenland turned pink but its still white

But why the sudden shift in the Nasa image that turned Greenland Pink? The temperature did actually get above freezing for a brief period f time which caused a sudden extensive but short-lived surface melting on the Greenland icecap. Hardly the doomsday scenario the press was reporting. It happens every year, its called summer.

Most US maximum temperature records set in the 1930s

Most US maximum temperature records set in the 1930s by Jonathan DuHamel, Tucsoncitizen.com Global warming is a funny thing. Whenever we experience a heat wave the press proclaims it is the face of global warming, but when we have an unusual cold snap, it is merely natural variation. The Arizona …

Will Minnesota be lower than Mauna Loa?

I wonder why this is? Could it be that in Minnesota during the height of our growing season that there is enough plant growth to absorb all of that nasty CO2 and it actually drops below 350PPM? I have know clue but next week we will all find out.

The mother of all hoaxes

This has not stopped the Public Broadcast System’s News Hour from airing a new series “on how climate change in the Pacific Northwest is affecting the region’s Native American Indian tribes — flooding their reservations and threatening the region’s salmon fisheries.” Climate change is shorthand for global warming.

New Study Thoroughly Debunks Global Warming, Will Media Notice?

Professor Dr. Jan Esper’s group at the Institute of Geography at JGU used tree-ring density measurements from sub-fossil pine trees originating from Finnish Lapland to produce a reconstruction reaching back to 138 BC. In so doing, the researchers have been able for the first time to precisely demonstrate that the long-term trend over the past two millennia has been towards climatic cooling.

Not as hot as you may think

Examples include 110 degrees in Millsboro, Del., on July 21, 1930; 118 degrees at Keokuk, Iowa, on July 20, 1942; and Steele, N.D., reaching 121 degrees on July 6, 1936. Thirty-eight states recorded all-time highs before 1960. Likewise, the hottest year on record in the U.S. was 1934.
