Climate Disaster Today: Peaches And Antarctica

Today’s prognostication of Doom is about peaches

Climate may harm the future of Georgia’s state symbol, the peach. But there may be answers.

Lush, fuzzy, delicious: the Georgia peach is a succulent state symbol.

But human-caused climate change could spell doom for Georgia’s peach crops – and the threat has begun to affect the area.

In a feature story for National Geographic, environment and conservation journalist Sarah Gibbens looks at the toll the warming climate has already taken on Georgia’s peach industry, and how scientists and farmers are planning for a precarious future. (snip)

“Peach trees need a minimum number of chilly hours for their spring buds to bear fruit,” Gibbens writes. “Every winter, when temperatures fall below 45°F, peach trees produce the hormones that tell them to go dormant. The average Georgia peach needs anywhere from 650 to 850 hours of cold weather in a season – so-called chill hours.”

A warming climate imperils those necessary colder hours, and the American South’s winters are getting shorter and hotter every year.

The implication here is that this is your fault and things are going to go badly. The National Geographic piece is behind a “we want your email address to read this” wall, which I’m not doing, but, you can be sure that it prognosticates doom.

Antarctica’s South Pole froze over in coldest winter on record despite climate crisis

Between April and September this year, the average temperatures at the Amundsen–Scott South Pole Station dropped to a bone-chilling -61C (-78F). These were the coldest average temperatures recorded in the Antarctic South Pole since records began in 1957 but may come as a surprise to most. The extraordinary cold was recorded despite the planet as a whole experiencing one of its hottest summers ever. (snip)

The Antarctic’s bitter winter was likely the product of a strong polar vortex in the stratosphere, an atmospheric layer that begins about 33,0000ft or 6.2 miles (10km) up.

According to Amy Butler, an atmospheric scientist at NOAA, the vortex would have helped trap cold air over the South Pole.

And, of course, that strong vortex is surely your fault for driving a fossil fueled vehicle, eating meat, and refusing to give your money and freedom to Government.

No Tricks Zone covers this all in detail, including

The Washington Post’s suggestion that Antarctica “continues to warm rapidly” is also contradicted by recent studies showing the entire South Pole continent has in fact cooled since data recording began in the 1950s.

There are a lot fake news and misleading press releases out there, and they are being consistently exposed by objective peer-reviewed science.

The graphic is pretty much dead on for the Cult of Climastrology, except 10. They have peer review. It’s just mule fritters peer review, people propping up each other’s BS.

    I used to get Skeptic Magazine. One issue had the list of characteristics for a scam. The following issue defended the concept of global warming. But the points they used were fit the previous definition of a scam. Writing to them and pointing this out resulted in being called ignorant and a follower of FOX news. Of course I have never understood this reference to FOX as they do not report real news. Only a tiny fraction better that others.

      You used to be a skeptic and now you’re a climate change denier, anti-vaxxer, hydroxychloroquine/ivermectin promoter, trump won believer, Covid is a hoax, there’s a global commie takeover in the works, demofascistcommies are coming for your guns and Dems run pedophile rings out of pizza parlors.

    It’s too late; we’re already doomed!

    Pierre Gosselin (aka The Trickster) of the NoTricksZone is not a scientist and does not trade in “peer-reviewed” science.

    William Teach: which I’m not doing, but, you can be sure that it prognosticates doom

    Teach criticizes an article that he refuses to read.

      Jeff,
      You are clearly not a scientist yet you blabber constantly.

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        dookie,

        I’m certainly more of a scientist than you and find that scientists are more trustworthy than bloggers.

        • Kye says:

          “I’m certainly more of a scientist than you and find that scientists are more trustworthy than bloggers.”

          How does one go about becoming “more of a scientist” than others? Do you take a More of a Scientist course at SNHU on the internet? Or is this like those fake “ordination” rackets that can make you a minister for $50.

          From what we have seen and heard and were subject to by scientists these past 18 months I think you should reconsider exactly who is more trustworthy. At least admit that when a dumbass blogger lies he doesn’t kill people, throw them out of work, close their business, lock up their kids, deny the children their education or try to destroy their fellow Americans with government force or lawfare because they disagree. Seems scientists do.

        • david7134 says:

          Jeff,
          You know nothing of science. All you do is give out irrelevant talking points, you have no knowledge of the scientific method, your day is spent blogging and calling people names.

          Are you saying that no one but a scientist can discuss climate change and then that person must agree with you.

          I might remind you that you are just a pharmacist and have no knowledge of medicine outside a very narrow spectrum. So you can not have an opinion on medical topics.

          • Elwood P. Dowd says:

            dookie,

            I’m not a pharmacist but I’ve taught them. And med students and nursing students. Med students are arrogant assholes and never outgrow it. Pharmacy and nursing students are eager to learn.

          • david7134 says:

            Jeff,
            Do you ever realize how immature your comments are. But explain why I care about your opinion of medical students. I find that fascinating that you are so like a grade school kid.

        • Jl says:

          This is still over J’s head-the blogger in this case is the messenger, the scientific peer-reviewed papers are the message. J can’t refute the message so all he has is to go after the messenger. In the absence of the blogger., the papers would still be there…

        Obviously more of a scientist than you and you blabber constantly.

      As usual if you don’t like the science you slander the speaker. Typical Alinsky. Peer review has of recent fallen into disrepute in both fake global warming and fake demofascist viruses. When the “peers” are bought and paid for (almost exclusively by the CCP) they are neither truthful not dependable. IOW, worthless. You have relied on phony “experts” all your life and have yet to be proven correct on anything. Unless you choose to consider ALL the evidence you may as well us a magic fuking 8 ball. You’re doing the same thing with HCQ and Ivermectin.

      A closed mind is a terrible thing to waste Elwood.

      Fuk joe biden!

    So, if it’s too warm, and parts of the Antarctic ice shelf break off, it’s our fault, and if it’s too cold, and the penguins suffer, that’s our fault, too?

    • Hairy says:

      Antartica is getting colder but more ice is melting
      Ok
      So both are true but which will have more effect on the environment?

  5. Hairy says:

    Why aren’t any of those quack miracle covid cures reducing the death rate in those red states?

    • Kye says:

      They have.

    • Dana says:

      Rate of positive COVID tests down again in KY.

      Calling it a “ray of hope,” Kentucky’s statewide rate of people testing positive for COVID-19 has dropped for three consecutive weeks, Gov. Andy Beshear said Monday as he announced 1,239 new cases of the virus.

      The rate, a leading indicator, had dropped to 9.31% on Monday, down from 10.55% a week ago. Week-over-week case volumes have dropped for two consecutive weeks, and hospitalizations have been decreasing for almost a month. . . . .

      Deaths from the virus, a lagging indicator, have yet to drop off markedly.

      Ask your friend Mr Dowd what the difference between a leading and a lagging indicator is.

    It started with two weeks to “flatten the curve” and now it’s “vaccination” passports and job firings. I did Nazi that coming.
