New Video: The Climate Signal in This Year’s Crazy Weather

July 12, 2019

No secret we’ve had anomalous weather patterns across the US heartland over the last 6 months.

I spent quite a bit of time trying to pull together the best explanations from the most credible researchers, trying to tease out the climate signal from the noise.
I spoke to Jennifer Francis, senior researcher at Woods Hole, Michael Mann of Penn State, Jeff Masters of Weather Underground, Jim Overland of NOAA, and CBS News Meteorology expert Jeff Berardelli.
The connection between loss of arctic ice and extreme weather in the temperate zone has never been more clear.

    WHAT? Sorry, but the recent and unending drone of posts on Crock from jerry doodoo and newsitz has drowned out anything the climate scientists have to say.

    Trolls? this is your site at which you make money from the ads. I have no objection to you making money, that is as american as apple pie. All I point out is there are other sides to the question of climate from sources like NOAA and NASA to name two sources of data. If you can show errors in those sources than you will have done a service to both your readers and me.

    While fossil fuels do pollute, there is no actual alternative except for nuclear power until better storage solutions become available for base line power and moving vehicles. Hydro power is about maxed out. There is a lot of promising improvement in battery storage that are not yet in commercial use that may be a least partial solutions to storage. One of which is the non flammable lithium battery. As Tesla has shone, putting flammable batteries in vehicles has negative outcomes in accidents. Pollution from mining the materials for battery storage is a problem you have not addressed to may knowledge, yet it does need to be addressed and fixed if we go the battery route.

    Converting from coal to natural gas reduces pollution a lot which is a good thing. Putting in solar and wind without subsiding them with taxpayer money in the form of tax credits, direct payments and higher energy charges is also a good thing.

    If we waste our money on solutions which are not solutions instead of fixing things that actually need to be fixed we will be worse off, your kids should you have them will be worse off. That is a situation to be avoided.

      Terry/jerry – you don’t resort to personal attacks, unlike the recent troll a few posts back, and that’s good. But, you’re more of a subtle troll. Your particular trolliness comes in the form of refusing to respond to other commenters when they do point out errors in the gish gallop posts you make. This happens not every once in a while, but all the time. Someone responds to you, you don’t respond back. Therefore, you are not engaging in an honest dialogue. You’re only here to spread BS as much as you can in a sort of ‘hit and run’ fashion.

      This will be the last time I respond to you, and I suggest others do the same, until you learn common courtesy and how to respond. You can start by picking anything in rhymes’ comment below.

        The saddest thing of all is that these guys seem to believe, from their mum’s basement, that they have found something truly heart-stopping that disproves everything everyone has been researching for the last 40 plus years. On sites like this. OTOH, at least it keeps them occupied and maybe reduces the amount of bullshit in the general population. Think of their trolls as a kind of public service.

      cite your sources and I will help you understand your error

      Would help if you weren’t illiterate. Illiteracy demonstrates a low IQ, it’s one of the indicators. a) Renewables are no longer subsidised [[that’s subsidised, not subsided, got it?], alternative to ICE vehicles already well developed, I drive one, they’re called electric vehicles, and enough of them with smart metering/charging can help solve storage needs.
      All the rest is similarly ignorance.

      Tom, (Bates)

      You don’t need to trust the meteorological services statistics, you don’t need to trust the word of trained hard working scientists. It has nothing to do with faith or religion. It is a fact. You just use your eyes and ears. It is not a fabrication of the “West”. Climate change is acknowledged and talked about everywhere. And some places are suffering more than others. And some of us are worried for our children and children’s children sake, because they won’t have the opportunity to be armchair commentators on the science mankind has cooked up on the globe.

      “The Middle East is currently witnessing “unprecedented” recordings of extremely high temperatures during the summer months. “The high heat and temperature conditions are also driving desertification in the region, causing increased dust storms.”

    You’ve already proved on multiple occasions that you don’t know how to read the data that they’re providing.
    (1) You used cooling-stratosphere data—an expected outcome of increased GHGs—to try to disprove global warming.
    (2) You took the last century’s Miami Beach tidal/SLR trend data to show that increased sea-lever rise is not happening now.
    (3) You used mainstream news coverage of general subsidence problems to apply it to the City of Miami, to try to explain increased tidal flooding, when that city is not subsiding (as confirmed by altimetry).
    (4) You don’t understand or acknowledge that changes to the northern jet stream (aka the polar vortex) are changing weather patterns, and that another term for “weather patterns” is “climate”.

    You keep parroting false arguments because you don’t understand the physical meaning of the data.
    NOAA and NASA and everybody else are recording that
    arctic ice and permafrost are melting at an accelerating rate when the planet should be going into its next Ice Age. ARGO float networks are recording the increased heating of the oceans to depths more quickly than expected.

    Good video, Peter – thanks again for your hard work.

    Greenman, the links to the previous article about turbine syndrome are broken.

    had to take video down due to a rights issue.

  7. Paul Whyte Says:

    Great post, thanks for the steady stream of stuff that’s worth watching. I appreciate your efforts, Peter.

  8. redskylite Says:

    Another great video under 5 minutes that says so much – it’s thanks and appreciation from me.
