Bummer: Spring More Like Winter

Of course, we know that some climate astrologist will blame this on climate change, but for the moment

(Detroit News) “First day of spring?” said a WWJ-Detroit Radio forecasterWednesday morning in frigid, below-normal, 21-degree, Midwest temperatures with little relief in sight. “Feels more like the first day of January.”

What a difference a year makes.

Last March, the media welcomed spring in a panic over global warming, as local and national media sensationalized unseasonably warm temperatures. “”Meteorologists and other weather commentators have frequently commented they’ve never seen anything like this, exhausting superlatives,” hyperventilated Washington Post meteorologist Jason Samenow, citing the usual Horsemen of the Apocalypse, NASA’s James Hansen and activist Bill McKibben. “The background increases in greenhouse gases – at levels unprecedented in at least 800,000 years – are stacking the deck for more extreme heat events such as this and we have observed increases in average and extremely high temperatures.”

That was soooo 12 months ago. As usual, the global warming crowd was confusing weather and climate (not to mention hysteria and science). The science tells us the globe hasn’t warmed in 14 years, even as the planet trends warmer out of the Little Ice Age of the mid-19th century.

This doesn’t mean the Earth is heading into another cool period similar to the Little Ice Age or the Dark Age, nor even a glacial period. This simply means that the Earth’s climate is doing what the Earth’s climate does: namely, it’s own thing. That’s the explanation. Weather happens. Right now the Earth is in a long term (as in a couple of hundred years) warmer climate trend, but just like there will be really warm times during a cool period, there will be cool times during a warm trend. There’s little to nothing anthropogenic about it. Just nature doing nature things.

  1. The only thing “anthropogenic” about the Global Warming hoax is the hysterical dramatics of the statists on the Left designed to transfer more wealth from the private sector to gub’ment.

    Teach the NOAA says that the 2 hottest years on record since 1880 were 2010 and 2005.

    Teach the US Navy says its AGW, and its happening FAST. Only the deniers make it political, for the rest of us its simple science. Greenhouse gasses trap infrared radiation.

    Teach last year was the warmest year EVAH in the continental USA.
    Teach you have to look at the source of your info, and really is it as reliable as NOAA and the US Navy ? Do you think that the US NAvy, usually regarded as one of the more traditional branches, has been taken over by “warmists” ? been paid off by SOROS ?

  4. And absolutely none of that proves anthropogenic causation. Just normal weather.

    Btw, most of the rest of the world was below average. Any comment, John?

    Btw, are you a cornerback in real life? Because we know CBs have to have real short memories for when they get burned, and you’ve been beaten badly time and time again on that navy thing

    And no, we don’t really trust NOAA or NASA all that much when they continue to employ idiots like Hansen and his caudry despite their lack of any substantive results, evidence, or senility.

    dang, it sure is STILL cold.. How come we haven’t heard reports from the media on how this is the coldest start of a year in 500 years?

    odd that.
