All Weather Now Bears The Fingerprints Of You Eating A Burger For Lunch Or Something

The signal of human-caused climate change has emerged in everyday weather, study finds

For the first time, scientists have detected the “fingerprint” of human-induced climate change on daily weather patterns at the global scale. If verified by subsequent work, the findings, published Thursday in Nature Climate Change, would upend the long-established narrative that daily weather is distinct from long-term climate change.

The study’s results also imply that research aimed at assessing the human role in contributing to extreme weather events such as heat waves and floods may be underestimating the contribution.

The new study, which was in part motivated by President Trump’s tweets about how a cold day in one particular location disproves global warming, uses statistical techniques and climate model simulations to evaluate how daily temperatures and humidity vary around the world. Scientists compared the spatial patterns of these variables with what physical science shows is expected because of climate change.

OK, so, this was utterly political in nature. Just like the rest of the climate change scam.

The study concludes that the spatial patterns of global temperature and humidity are, in fact, distinguishable from natural variability, and have a human component to them. Going further, the study concludes that the long-term climate trend in global average temperature can be predicted if you know a single day’s weather information worldwide.

According to study co-author Reto Knutti of ETH Zurich, the research alters what we can say about how weather and climate change are connected. “We’ve always said when you look at weather that’s not the same as climate,” he said. “That’s still true locally, if you are in one particular place and you only know the weather right now, right here, there isn’t much you can say.”

However, on a global scale, that is no longer true, Knutti said. “Global mean temperature on a single day is already quite a bit shifted. You can see this human fingerprint in any single moment.

So, when it’s hot, it’s your fault. Cold? Your fault. Snow, ice, rain, no rain, a beautiful day to have a picnic, all your fault.

    Yes Teach it is true American beef does have a carbon footprint
    About 4pounds of CO2 is emitted for each 1/2 pond of hamburger
    Of course you can offset those 4 pounds of CO2 rather easily and at a very low price
    About 3 cents ( at current rate of $8 per ton)
    The average American could offset his entire carbon footprint for about $100
    Is this the heinous tax you are so worried about ?

      I don’t want to give government any money for this ruse.

      I’m sure beef has a shadow, too, which is just as damaging as its “carbon footprint”.

      It probably has opinions as well, equally meaningless.

      John, do you currently “offset your entire carbon footprint for about $100”? If not, why not. And if so who do you pay the $100 to? Did you get a receipt?

      I like the ridiculous idea that paying money can make your carbon disappear. Like the old Indulgences of the Church. Well, the cult is a religious institution so it makes sense therefore I assume the money goes to the “pope”, Al Gore.

      Is one bite just a puddle?

      Suuuure. That’s what pays for the Living Redwood’s palatial estate with hot and cold running chakras.

      Is this the heinous tax you are so worried about ?

      In the legendary words of Everett McKinley Dirksen, “A pond here, a pond there, pretty soon, it adds up to the Mississippi”.

    • $100?? I will forgive your climate sin for half that much. Can anyone get in on this or do you have to have a name like “Gore” to sell carbon indulgences?

    • Also… if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. The Average family will pay $2,500 less for health care every year.

      Here’s an idea. Let’s use my health care savings to pay for my Carbon footprint.

    from Polar Bear International

    The IUCN Polar Bear Specialist Group lists the polar bear as a vulnerable species, citing sea ice loss from climate change as the single biggest threat to their survival. The most recent study (Hamilton & Derocher, 2018)* estimates there are currently about 23,000 polar bears worldwide. But without action on climate change, we could see dramatic declines in polar bear numbers by mid-century.

    Other threats to the bears include increased commercial activities, pollution, disease, inadequate habitat protection (of denning and seasonal resting areas), and the potential for over-harvest in smaller or declining polar bear populations.

    At the 2014 meeting of the PBSG, the world’s leading polar bear scientists reported that of the 19 subpopulations of polar bears, three were declining, six were stable, and one was increasing. They lacked sufficient data on the status of the remaining nine.

      Elwood. Come up with a new lie to repeat.

      “The Arctic Ocean is warming up, icebergs are growing scarcer and in some places the seals are finding the water too hot according to a report to the Commerce Department yesterday from US Consulate at Bergen Norway.

      Reports from fishermen, seal hunters and explorers all point to a radical change in climate condition and hitherto unheard-of temperature in the Arctic zone.
      Exploration expeditions report that scarcely any ice has been met as far north as 81 degrees 29 minutes.

      Great masses of ice have been replaced by moraines of earth and stones, the report continued, while at many point well-known glaciers have entirely disappeared.
      Very few seals and no white fish are found in the eastern Arctic, while vast shoals of herring and smelts which have never before ventured so far north, are being encountered in the old seal fishing grounds.

      Within a few years it is predicted that due to the ice melt the sea will rise and make most coast cities uninhabitable.”

      This report was from November 2, 1922, as reported and published in The Washington Post.

    Which is all just total BS- these researchers to come that conclusion would have to know what specific weather events would have been like absent more CO2, which they of course can’t.
