President Obama returned early Saturday from climate talks in Copenhagen, landing at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland in the midst of the storm.

December 19, 2009 10:42 am

Sorry, I don’t know where else I can post this and get input from knowledgeable skeptics.
I am currently trying to find out more information on this:
In Lord Monckton’s letter to Dr. Pachauri he (unscientifically)
demonstrated that the slopes for the previous periods of warming were
similar to the slope of the warming period we are currently in (page 6
in the PDF linked below.)
http://scienceandpublicpolicy.org/images/stories/papers/originals/pachauri_letter.pdf
However I’m having trouble finding data or studies that demonstrate
the warming is occurring at the same rate as earlier in the century.
This is where I am going with this:
The scientific literature says that our current warming (last 30-35)
years is too great to be caused by the sun alone. They attribute it
of course to anthropogenic causes. They wholly attribute the
1850-1975/1980 warming we have seen to natural causes. It sure seems
that if our current warming is at a rate no greater than the previous
warming that it could be caused by the same natural mechanisms.
Please help with any information you may have.

Plenty of excellent, I like the “don’t worry Mr. President, Hansen, Mann, and Jones assure me this will be ‘adjusted’ to be the warmest December 18th this century” as well as “Obviously my trip was a success. Global warming has already gone”.
yesterday went to watch videos of Piers Corbyn, there was an opportunity to read his forecast done on the 2nd of December for the second part of december. for the US and Canada he wrote: “19th to 31st: a series of waves of severe and at times dangerous wintry weather” a little bit down he wrote “severe deluges of snow/blizzards hail & winter thunder/ tornadoes at times”. And more particularly “19-20 Dec Major SWIP & Deluges / extreme activity”. Ok it started on the 18th but it is relatively accurate so far.
Sorry guys but 22nd and 23rd is the same, then 25th to 27th, it is moderate and not major. then “28th to 30th MAJOR (in capital letters) cold blasts & snowstorms extreme activity TOPa SWIP with notable simultaneous extreme events around world.” I do not want to know what he would have forecasted if there was no global warming!?
