More Dangerous Than Global Warming: AL GORE

Courtesy of Hyscience, here it is: The Truth About Global Warming And The Peril Of Al Gore (Video)

The real danger is fact-challenged Al Gore and his absurd models which have never predicted any condition, anytime, anywhere – successfully.

Ice Age, and boiling oceans, Al Gore predicts it all – anyway, anyhow, and SOON.

Al Gore is a one-man climate disaster, himself. Must see, this video.

Oh; No Tomatos in Wisconsin, Either

Ice Age Now: No Tomatos in Wisconsin, Either

Probably, the ravages of global greenhouse warming are laying waste to another state’s crop of wonderful, healthy, tomatos!

Or thousands of MassiveMegaStorms, as forecasted by Al Gore and Jim Hansen, have ripped the vines apart.

Jim and Al, should we plant cold-weather crops next spring, too; oh prognisticators of prognosticators. Thanks in advance for your climate forecasting brilliance.

7 Aug 09 – Email from a reader in Wisconsin

Dear Mr. Felix,

The article about the Nebraska tomatoes was fun.
At least they have fruit on their vines.

My tomato plants are robust and very healthy but with
very few blossoms and no fruit as yet.

All my cool weather crops are doing great, peas, carrots,
cabbage and potatoes but the rest is decidedly lagging.

I’m in Northern Wisconsin about ten miles south of Lake Superior and it has been fairly cool here this year.

Duluth records are tracking this summer in the top ten for coolest.

This next week we are supposed to get a string of 80 degree days but we will have to wait and see because every time they say that as time passes they end up revising their predictions and lowering the predicted temperature.

From the looks of things I wouldn’t be surprised to see a frost in the next couple weeks and an early winter.

Just thought you would have fun with hearing from this area.

Nebraska Tomatos – Bad Year, Too Cold

(Climate Alarmist Post)

1 of 10 coolest Julys on Record in Nebraska . . . Not a big deal, really.
It is quite a big deal however that anthropogenic carbon dioxide is no longer warming Earth – and nothing else is either – given that the sun is soundly snoozing.
If cycle 24 is as weak as history suggests it will be, temperatures could drop for another 20 years, maybe more. It could get a lot colder than 1972 (remember the alarmism then? I don’t know how much, colder though).
Humans adapt quickly though. Particularly they did in Greenland. Oh; I meant “died” in Greenland. All of ’em. Dying is like – adapting, right?

They might watch out in Greenland, I guess.

Talk about frustration.

By now, many vegetable gardeners would be layering fat slices of tomatoes on a plate and eating them like watermelon.

But not this year.

The prize of gardening — a juicy tomato, ripe by the Fourth of July — has remained stubbornly green and hard.

A Sarpy County farmer, master gardener and longtime competitor at the county fair, Green has 67 plants — 27 varieties — this year at his farm outside Springfield, Neb. And they just aren’t ripening.

Blame it on the cool weather, he said. Tomatoes need warm days and warm nights to ripen. So far, though, much of eastern Nebraska is running about 4 to 6 degrees below normal for July.

Kathleen Cue, horticulturist for the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension in Douglas and Sarpy Counties, said many common varieties will need a week of sustained warmth to ripen. The lower end of acceptable warmth, she said, is a daytime high in the 70s and nighttime low in the 60s. Noticeably warmer than that would be better for more rapid ripening, she said.

Native to Central and South America, tomatoes need warmth to stimulate fruiting, rather than growing foliage.

With eastern and central Nebraska seeing what could be one of the 10 coolest Julys on record, genuine warmth has been hard to come by. Metro-area temperatures for the rest of this week are forecast to be in the mid-70s to low 80s during the day and upper 50s to low 60s at night.

The type of tomato classified as a determinate, such as Celebrity and Big Boy, are about two weeks behind in ripening and could end up a month behind, Cue said. Determinates tend to be larger and are bred so all the tomatoes on a single plant ripen simultaneously for easy harvesting and shipping, she said.

Many heirloom varieties, on the other hand,

Confident It’s A Mild Minimum Earth Faces?

Another 30 day sunspot free period?

Another 30 day sunspot free period?

Two or three more days without a sunspot, and we’ll have another 30-day spot-free period under our belts; but who is counting? Anthropogenic carbon dioxide controls weather via the greenhouse effect, right . . . And as carbon dioxide goes up, temperature goes up, right? Please show me, since 1998, just how much temperature has gone up.

Sunspots, climate change and the sleepy sun: Some deeper science

In fact, 2008, which was the quietest solar year in a century, could be bettered by 2009. If 70% of the remaining days in 2009 are sunspot free, we’ll pass 2008, bumping it into 3rd place. The greatest number of sunspot free days since the year 1900 was in 1913, with approx. 320. The math shows that this record at least is safe for another year.

Another measure of solar sleep is the 10-centimeter radio flux streaming out from the nearest star to Earth. This too has been at very low levels in 2009, continuing the trend of the past two years. Much research shows that lower solar “wind” leads to more intergalactic particles reaching the earth’s surface, and possibly more cloud formation. Perhaps this is how solar changes relate to Earth temperatures. More particles provide more collection sites for water vapor to condense, hence more clouds.

Of the 10 most sunspot free years in the past 110 years, 2008, 2007, and 2009 are now included; all of them. But we are only 2/3 of the way through 2009. And, the next sunspot could be a cycle 23 spot, just as easily as a cycle 24 spot, apparently. The older cycle 23 becomes, the fewer sunspots will occur in cycle 24, experience shows. How confident are you that it’s a Dalton Minimum or less severe minimum and cold period Earth faces, and not a more serious Maunder-like event; or worse? Scientists are not concerned; government is not concerned; energy sources are being idled and new sources are not being built or opened.

Latest from Svensmark; Forbush events dry out low clouds

Now here is a big deal; episodic CMEs decrease cosmic ray counts at Earth’s surface – AND:

Decreases in Cosmic Rays Affect Atmospheric Aerosols and Clouds

Close passages of coronal mass ejections from the sun are signaled at the Earth’s surface by Forbush decreases in cosmic ray counts. We find that low clouds contain less liquid water following Forbush decreases, and for the most influential events the liquid water in the oceanic atmosphere can diminish by as much as 7%. Cloud water content as gauged by the Special Sensor Microwave/Imager (SSM/I) reaches a minimum ≈7 days after the Forbush minimum in cosmic rays, and so does the fraction of low clouds seen by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) and in the International Satellite Cloud Climate Project (ISCCP). Parallel observations by the aerosol robotic network AERONET reveal falls in the relative abundance offine aerosol particles which, in normal circumstances, could have evolved into cloud condensation nuclei. Thus a link between the sun, cosmic rays, aerosols and liquid-water clouds appears to exist on a global scale.

Much more can be found here: Forbush decreases confirm cosmoclimatology, and here A link between the Sun, cosmic rays, aerosols, and liquid-water clouds appears to exist on a global scale…,.

A significant conclusion:

Our results show global scale evidence of conspicuous influences of solar variability on cloudiness and aerosols. Irrespective of the detailed mechanism, the loss of ions from the air during FDs reduces the cloud liquid water content over the oceans. So marked is the response to relatively small variations in the total ionization, [that] we suspect that a large fraction of Earth’s clouds could be controlled by ionization. Future work should estimate how large a volume of the Earth’s atmosphere is involved in the ion process that leads to the changes seen in CCN and its importance for the Earth’s radiation budget. From solar activity to cosmic ray ionization to aerosols and liquid-water clouds, a causal chain appears to operate on a global scale.

Fort Wayne Smashes Record for Coldest July – EVER

The fiendish greenhouse toxin Carbon Dioxide, as a percentage of atmosphere, continues relentlessly upward.

But Fort Wayne obliterates its all-time record for coldest July EVER by a whopping 0.8 degrees Farenheit.

Hey: If there are more tornados, you should pay Al Gore, government, and scientists more money.

If there are less tornados, you should pay Al Gore, government, and scientists more money.

If the carbon dioxide goes up, you should pay Al Gore, government, and scientists more money.

If the carbon dioxide goes sideways, the same.

Did it ever occur to you that Al Gore, government, and scientists, don’t know anything more about climate than you do? No matter how desparatly they claim to.

It should have. Because they don’t. They have not a clue more sure knowledge about climate than you do. They cannot predict anything.

Except, maybe a few historians qualify as reliable scientists. Some historians have noticed that the prolonged sunspot-free periods are accompanied by bitter cold on Earth; so cold that food becomes scarce and limited in its variety.

History will repeat, no matter what self-glorified climate scientists, government bureaucrats, and Al Gore tell you.

History you can trust. Scientists, Al Gore, and government bureaucrats you cannot. I really thought this was obvious; sorry I keep repeating myself.

But here’s what I intended to bring you, the story about Fort Wayne’s COOLEST JULY EVER:

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana’s NewsCenter) — This July ranks as the coldest July on record in the Fort Wayne area. The average monthly temperature for July 2009 was 68.9 degrees. That’s 4.5 degrees below normal. The previous record was 69.7 degrees set in 1967.

Why so cool?

A persistent trough of low pressure across Eastern Canada and the Eastern United States has helped to funnel cool Canadian air into the Great Lakes and Ohio Valley for most of the summer, while keeping the hot and humid weather well to our west. In addition to the cooler than normal air, below normal dew points have helped to make the summer feel more like Fall with very low but comfy relative humidities.

Lake effect… in July?!

It has been so cool that on two separate occasions, rare July lake effect rain showers occurred across southwest lower Michigan and northwest Indiana on July 1st and 2nd, and again on July 18th. On both occasions, high temperatures remained in the low 60’s and low 70’s.

Highs and Lows

The hottest day was on July 10th with a high of 87, and the coolest temperature was 49 just four days later on July 14th. The last time the highest temperature in July was just 87 was in 2000. All other July highest temperatures on record had high temperatures of at least 88 degrees. The average HIGH temperature was 79.2 degrees, which is the record coolest average high temperature for July. July 1915 was previously the coldest at 79.9 degrees. The average monthly low temperature was 58.5, and this ranked as the third coolest for average low temperatures.

Struggling to warm up.

Only three of the 31 days in July 2009 had an average temperature above normal. July 28th was the warmest day of the month with an average temperature of 75 degrees, just two degrees above normal. There was one day with the average temperature at least ten degrees below normal, and that was the coldest day of the month on July 4th. The high was only 72 and the low was 52, and average temperature of 62, eleven degrees below normal. Fort Wayne also broke records for the coolest high temperature on two separate days, July 17th and 22nd.

“Struggling to warm up” is the problem then? In July? Will reality sink in, in Fort Wayne? Not ’til Fort Wayne starves, if Al Gore, scientists, and Washington bureaucrats have their way.

The bottom line: If you want to know the future, first at least make sure you understand the past. Outside of that, shut up.

Fight Global Warming?

The US Government wants you to fight global warming and toxic carbon dioxide at any cost. We must pay up, cap and trade carbon credits, tax or shut off our energy. Maybe next year will be the year without any summer at all! Earth’s temperature is going down, not up. There are forces at work far more powerful than human generated carbon dioxide, and all carbon dioxide.
