It’s Apparently “Abrupt Climate Change, You Stupid People”

Hey, it’s not me calling you stupid (unless you believe in this claptrap as pushed by Warmists)

Gwynne Dyer: It’s abrupt climate change, stupid

This is not how it was supposed to happen.

The standard climate change predictions said that people in the tropics and the sub-tropics would be badly hurt by global warming long before the people living in the temperate zones, farther away from the equator, were feeling much pain at all.

That was unfair, because it was the people of the rich countries in the temperate zone—North America, Europe, and Japan, mainly—who industrialised early and started burning large amounts of fossil fuel as long as two centuries ago. That’s how they got rich. Their emissions of carbon dioxide over the years account for 80 percent of the greenhouse gases of human origin that are now in the atmosphere, causing the warming, yet they get hurt least and last.

Well, what did you expect? The gods of climate are almost certainly sky gods, and sky gods are never fair. But they have always liked jokes, especially cruel ones, and they have come up with a great one this time. The people of the temperate zones are going to get hurt early after all, but not by gradual warming. Their weather is just going to get more and more extreme: heat waves, blizzards, and flooding on an unprecedented scale.

Dwyer goes on and on and on and on claiming that it is now those in the 1st World who are being hurt by “abrupt climate change. You want proof of abrupt climate change? Here’s the photo that accompanies that article

That’s right, snow. Of course, Dwyer goes on about the polar amplification and extreme weather and jet stream movement and all the other Warmist anti-science talking points designed to say that cold and snow and ice and every weather event is the fault of people driving fossil fueled vehicles in cold and snow.

Hence the “polar-vortex” winter in North America this year, the record snowfalls in Japan in 2012 and again this winter, the lethal heat waves in the eastern U.S. in 2012—and the floods in Britain this winter.

“They’ve been pummelled by storm after storm this winter [in Britain],” said Francis at the American Association for the Advancement of Science conference in Chicago last week. “It’s been amazing what’s going on, and it’s because the pattern this winter has been stuck in one place ever since early December.” There’s no particular reason to think that it will move on soon, either.

Chicago is closing in on an all-time snow record. One might thing that all the snow and cold would be caused by cold weather. Not in Warmist world, where it’s caused by warmth. Right now Chicago is 38.1 inches above normal for the season, at 62.1 inches, placing it in the top 5. They’d need to hit 89.8 inches to break the record, set in the 1978-79 season. England has suffered through tough winters 5 out of the last 6, being especially cold and snowy.

    Here’s what Teachy says.

    Global warming is a myth because it snowed! Global warming makes it warm. Snow is cold. Therefore, there can be no snow if there’s global warming! Since there’s snow, there can be no global warming!

    And some climate scientists drive cars and use air conditioning proving they are not serious.

    Here’s what Jeffy says: Global warming is real isn’t warming anymore. Jeffy says GW is real because fossil fuel burning creates Co2- which it does, but there’s been higher concentrations before and it’s been warmer before. Jeffy says, ignore all that, it’s real!

    Abrupt climate change causes dementia among AGWists.
    We’re in the top 3 totals in SE PA, by increments of an inch. A few more inches we may hit the record high. That’s in a few inches. And this all depends on whether the amounts are taken at the Philadelphia airport, center city or the suburbs. Either way, this too is not terribly scientific. Fun to compare who had the best winter, our parents grands or us! (in terms of those who love the snow)
    Besides, records are made to be broken, no?

    You don’t seem to realize that 1) it is still warming, 2) higher previous CO2 and higher previous surface temps do not change the cause of the current rapid warming, which is added atmospheric CO2. There is nothing to ignore – it’s just a non sequitur on your part.

    Atmospheric CO2 hasn’t been this high in close to a million years. This is the highest CO2 that man has ever seen. So what? Atmospheric CO2 inevitably leads to retention of infrared radiation from the Earth causing the atmosphere to warm! Although the science behind this is complex, the concept is straight-forward.

    And this is what you ignore: As I’ve explained to your repeatedly, the Earth and the human species will survive this man-made climate change but there will be catastrophic disruption of human civilization over the next few hundred years unless we act.

    There’s a 1% chance that you and the Pirate are right (and I’m being generous).

    The NOAA totally whiffed on this years winter weather prediction. Can you explain to me how they can reliably estimate what is going to happen in 50 years?

  9. Jeffery says:


    A short-term, local forecast, e.g., this winter in Eastern US, is not related to estimating that the global mean temperature will be 1.5 to 4.5 degrees warmer in 100 years. No one can accurately predict the temperature in Chicago 23 February 2064 but the global mean temperature can be predicted. The decade of the 2060s will almost certainly be warmer than the decade of the 2000s.
