US Postal Service To Release ClimaStupid Stamp

Of all the things the USPS has to worry about, such as dire financial problems, poor customer service, being broke, “climate change” isn’t one of them

The Global: Sea Surface Temperatures stamp image — one frame in a 1,460-frame (or four-year) animation — is a single snapshot of the team’s studies. To understand climate trends both past and future, the researchers must first grasp the pattern of sea surface temperatures. The two are inseparable. The ocean is a massive bank of heat from the sun and, as such, it stabilizes the Earth’s temperature, governing the seasons and stimulating changes in weather.

Wait, I thought all the heat was disappearing into the deep oceans? Anyhow, here’s what the stamp looks like

Of course, shrink that down to stamp size and you’ll barely be able to see it. Of course, as Anthony Watts notes

Hmmm, not only is it an oddball stamp, being round, it isn’t even of actual sea surface temperatures, it’s a model output. That’s not a real El Niño pattern you see on the stamp, it’s a simulation frame. See the “Inside the science” below. You’d think they would use one that depicts reality, not a model projection.  Our current SST image looks a lot different than the stamp – no reds, lots of blues, which show our current reality to be cooler than the modeled one.

Furthermore, if that’s an El Nino pattern, what does that have to do with man-induced global warming? They’ve been going on for, well, we don’t actually know, because they’ve been happening for so long. And, yes, they are most defiantly blaming Mankind. Back to USPS link

Delworth says there’s been broad consensus over the past 10 to 15 years that the Earth has warmed considerably since the middle of the 20th century, that the warming is largely due to human activity, and that the warming will continue. So now the question becomes: What are the aftereffects?

Well, the effects seem to be “no statistically significant warming in 17 years and 9 months.” They seem to be that 95% of climate models have failed. They seem to be an increase in harsh winters. Seriously, these wankers are using a natural process, El Nino, to attempt to scare people. Of course, how many people use stamps anymore?

    Please tell me that the USPS doesn’t have climate researchers on staff?!!?

    USPS is now putting out a global forever stamp? Isn’t that rather hubris of us to push our stamps on to the other nation’s postal services?

    Also, seems to me that they’d save tens of millions a year if they didn’t bother creating dozens upon dozens of new stamps each year. Just create a single stamp and mass produce them. Drop that cost down.

    I’m now seeing USPS trucks roaming around my neighborhood on Sundays. WUWT!?!?

    And, again, how can that be a “global” stamp when it only shows one half the globe??

    Well, the effects seem to be “no statistically significant warming in 17 years and 9 months.” — This is a false statement as has been repeatedly demonstrated. The Earth continues to warm. —

    They seem to be that 95% of climate models have failed. — This is a false statement as has been repeatedly demonstrated. Roy Spencer is misleading you. But of course you want to be mislead. —

    They seem to be an increase in harsh winters. — So? —

    Seriously, these wankers are using a natural process, El Nino, to attempt to scare people. — El Nino’s are warmer because of global warming, duh. The heat you ridicule as “hiding” in the oceans gets redistributed to the atmosphere during El Nino’s. Remember the start date for your claim that it stopped warming? 1997-1998. El Nino muy grande! —

    Poor customer service? What does FEDEX charge to send a letter from New York to Los Angeles? $10? How about the USPS? 49 cents.

  3. To respond to Jeff, I’ll use one of his own comments “You forgot to cite any evidence that your claim is true. Am I supposed to take your word for it? ”

    The 17 years 9 months thing comes directly from actual data. You can’t refute it, so you cover your eyes like a child. I thought you were interested in science?

    The 95% thing comes directly from comparing the models to real world observations. You can’t refute that.

    Can you empiracally prive that El Ninos are warmer? No.

    We easily see that you care nothing for science, nor understand how it works
