Sorta Blogless Sunday Pinup

Happy Sunday! A super great day in the once and future nation of America. This pinup is by Bill Medcalf, with a wee bit of help.

What is happening in Ye Olde Blogosphere? The Fine 15

  1. Patterico isn’t too impressed by Politico’s George Wallace/Donald Trump yammering
  2. Not A Lot Of People Know That covers scientists saying the current warm period is “nothing unusual”
  3. Chicks On the Right notes schools telling snowflakes to call 911 for the dumbest reasons ever
  4. Cold Fury features Trump Derangement Syndrome in full fury
  5. American Clarion wonders if you’ve had enough crime yet, America
  6. Evil Blogger Lady wonders if Dems are abandoning Hillary
  7. Fire Andrea Mitchell covers whether Hillary had a second server
  8. Flopping Aces compares and contrasts Trump and Sanders supporters
  9. House Of Eratosthenes discusses “The Hook”
  10. Legal Insurrection covers the Denver city council going after Chik Fil A
  11. Pamela Geller highlights more Islamic State insanity
  12. Public Secrets features yet another insane Hotcoldwetdry scary story
  13. The Other McCain covers radical feminism and the equality trap
  14. The Powers That Be has a cringeworthy quote from Jeb Bush
  15. And last, but not least, This ain’t Hell… has your Sunday feel good stories

As always, the full set of pinups can be seen in the Patriotic Pinup category, or over at my Gallery page. While we are on pinups, since it is that time of year, have you gotten your “Pinups for Vets” calendar yet? And don’t forget to check out what I declare to be our War on Women Rule 5 and linky luv posts and things that interest me

Don’t forget to check out all the other great material all the linked blogs have!

Anyone else have a link or hotty-fest going on? Let me know so I can add you to the list. (BTW, since someone asked, the reason I leave links for the previous week up (or you might see a *) is because they are place holders for later in the day or for next weeks. Easier than rewriting all the time. Also, the listing order has to do with how they are added over time, not how good a post is. I just copy and paste from the previous week, then edit. If you see one of the *’s, go ahead and check out the blog anyhow, see if there is an update. I cannot update with my Android during the day.

Thanks for the link! No. 12 should be “Public Secrets,” though, not “Proof Positive.”

Re –

They must be of the 3% of climate scientists who do not understand the current warming.

Two ways the current warm period differs from the MWP is in geographical extent and temperature. The current period is more widespread and the global mean surface temperature is warmer now. In addition, it’s clear that the current period is caused by CO2 added to the atmosphere, while the MWP was hypothesized to come from increased insolation, changing ocean currents and decreased volcanism. In the current warm period insolation is down, so it’s not the Sun.

Whoops! Will fix.

1) The Medieval Warm Period was likely global:
2) There’s been no warming for over 18 years and counting.
3) Surface temperature measurements are highly suspect, thanks to problems with poor record keeping, siting issues and proven instances of data-rigging. Far better are satellite measurements.
4) When has any prediction based on global warming come true?

1. The paper claims that the oceans warmed more than the surface during the Holocene warm periods, at least based on sediment core proxy measurements. Sound familiar? Currently, thermometers tell us the oceans are warming steadily.

2. In #1 you claim that estimates of ocean heat content (OHC) showed the Earth was warm, but in #2 you ignore accurate OHC measurements to claim the Earth hasn’t warmed for over 18 years! Was ocean warming important then, but not now?

3. There is absolutely no reason to think that satellite measurements are better than thermometers. Since 2000, the UAH satellite dataset (run by “Skeptics” Christy and Spencer) shows 0.12C warming while the RSS shows only 0.01C. Since 1979 (when satellite system came online) UAH shows 0.14C and RSS 0.12C.

The so-called skeptics rely on the RSS to risibly claim that global warming stopped 18 years ago. The 18 year claim is based on the careful selection of the 1998 El Nino year as a start point. It’s a particularly dishonest scheme.

4. Increasing CO2 will cause the Earth to retain more heat. The Arctic will warm faster than the rest of the Earth. Sea level will rise. Ocean pH will drop. Glaciers will melt. etc

There is no evidence to support the Denier position, but the conservative political class in the US uses Denialism to 1) importantly differentiate them from liberals and 2) to reward members of their donor elite.

Took a bit to figure out what you meant, Mike. I was looking at the category #, which is at 560, but, I guess with the same specific headline, 500.

Pretty wild, been doing this same post every Sunday for over 9 years.

From a blogging friend

Today’s post should be a lot of fun. Especially if you’re a fan of pin ups, vintage World War II style
