Say, Could Hotcoldwetdry Be The Grinch That Steals Christmas?

The annual rite of climate insanity continues

Could climate change be the Grinch that steals Christmas?

Everyone hates a Scrooge.

The winter holidays are a time to gather together, celebrate, stuff ourselves with figgy pudding and otherwise forget all about the travails of the outside world. But much like a certain nasty green fellow who lives in the vicinity of Whoville, climate change doesn’t show much respect for hallowed holiday traditions.

It’s hard to deck the halls without a Christmas tree, but thanks to rising temperatures, they may become harder to find. A Union of Concerned Scientists report released in September predicted dramatic losses in “climatically suitable” areas for Rocky Mountain tree species like ponderosa pines, Engelmann spruce and Douglas fir trees. Lodgepole pines, for example, could see their range decline by 90 percent by 2060, the report said (ClimateWire, Sept. 11).

Do you know what we have a lot of here in the south? Pine trees. I see many of them right outside the back window. Pine trees, like many trees, deal with a wide range of temperatures. My parents live in the Pine Barrens region of NJ. Those pines deal with below zero temps all the way into the 90’s. Does anyone think that a few degrees higher global temperature would be noticed?

Planning a holiday toast? California varietals could someday disappear from holiday wine lists. Pests and diseases that plague the Golden State’s vineyards are only encouraged by warmer weather (ClimateWire, March 25).

“Could”. No proof of mostly/solely anthropogenic causation, just fanatical, unhinged, anti-science prognostications by Warmists.

As for the Arctic, well, Santa Claus’ homeland certainly isn’t what it used to be.

“The Arctic has been getting greener, warmer, increasingly more accessible to shipping, energy extraction and fishing,” the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration stated this week (ClimateWire, Dec. 18).

Except for the massive growth of the Arctic the past few years.

But, really, rebutting any of this is virtually worthless. Warmists have a narrative and they go two out of three monkeys when presented with anything that violates their cultish beliefs (see no evil, hear no evil….yes, they think Skeptics are evil). They are as dogmatic as the most hardcore cults, ones like Heavens Gate and al Qeada. They use holidays to push their insanity every year. Not Muslim holidays, mind you, because they do not want to offend Muslims.

    Do you have any evidence to support your claim? We didn’t think so.

    We think you’re using a tried and true Denier trick. 2012 was a record low for Arctic ice extent – 2013 and 2014 had slightly more ice, but still well below average. You’re calling the slight uptick the last 2 years “massive growth”. Shame on you. Your readers deserve better. It’s called cherry-picking the data. You do it repeatedly by measuring the global mean surface temperature starting in 1998, a near record high year.

    We know you have no interest in the truth, but you could look at http://nsidc.org/arcticseaicenews/. Examine figures 1, 2 and 3 and identify the “massive growth”, please. Anthony Watts and the Hockey Schmuck rarely link to it.

    Merry Christmas!

    “2013 and 2014 had more ice, but still below average.” And what impossibly small window of time are they basing their “average ” on? When you only have data for a minuscule amount of time compared to the earth’s age, it’s not really an average of how much ice is in the Arctic, it’s only an average of how much ice is there in the very recenet past.

    And 1979 was a high for Arctic ice extent, as several years prior had less ice. From the 1990 IPCC report: “since 1976 the areal extent of sea ice has varied about a constant climatological level but in 1972-1975 sea ice extent was significantly less.” But I was wondering, did natural variability suffer extinction in 1979? There is nothing to indicate that the recent decline, or rise in Arctic sea ice extent is anything more than a natural occurrence. But the biggest Astrologer trick of all is to link any warming of the Arctic, or anywhere to man’s fossil fuel use. Like it never happened before. Happy New Year!
