I didn’t take this pic, but I’ve always liked it.
I like this one, too.
And of course there’s this weather pic. And this one.
Over and out.

I’m biting my tongue on this one. Time to remote into my images server.

Good luck, the software for my new Vivitar camera wouldn’t load.

I will never submit!

I’m workin on it boss. I’m just a little shagged out after a long squawk. That election was murder on my nerves. I will comply. Soon. Must. Sleep…… zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Interesting change in the term. Of course let’s not forget the Apostle Paul, “Submit yourselves to Christ therefore”..or Islam your self to Christ.
I’m sure all the prophets have plenty of WEATHER fotos to submit.

Over and out.

Smokey, Smokey, Smokey.
You never say “over and out”. If you’re expecting a response, it’s simply “over”. It you’re finished with the converation, it’s “out”. “Over and out” basically means “talk to me-shut up”, at least that’s how my Drill Instructor put it.

Great result for Canada! Common sense winning over? The only thing that made me sad was seeing the Greens actually win one (1) seat, Still a little work to do then!

I’ve always thought this the best example of where weather tracking technology sometimes hints at some of Man’s greater achievements…
REPLY: Nope, not a contrail, not an echo, just a plain old communications failure in the scan line transmission of the satellite image…seen hundreds of them that look just like this one. GOES satellite uses a stepping IR scanner, and sometimes the scan line develops a glitch during the transmission. As proof, have you ever seen a plane follow and maintain an exact latitude for that long? Sorry. It’s just noise. not a super secret plane contrail. – Anthony

I say ‘shut up’ to no commentators on this [un-censored] Best Science site. Thanks for the lesson in Drill Instructor protocol…

This is a 10sec. interval time lapse video of a passing storm cell, when the second cell approached, dumped heaps of rain and forced the camera indoors. It is a little rough around the edges, but you don’t know just when you will be lucky with what you capture. About 2.5 hours of filming (sounds old fashioned now!) and I allowed sunset to provide a fade-out.

Just completely off -topic. I’m looking for an article that was in WUWT some months ago. The article concerned (I think) Vostock CO2/ Temperature ice- core reconstructions. And the amazing thin was at the end of the article there was ANOTHER hide- the decline moment.
The past several decades CO2 reconstruction from the borehole showed a decline in borehole CO2 reconstructed atmospheric readings which contradicts Mauna Loa measurements of CO2 in the atmosphere and in the article was a graph presented by a warmist “climate researcher” where he had done a “hide the decline” and simply pasted the last few decades Mauna Loa CO2 data on the end.
Does anyone have this in their bookmarks?? on the off- chance?
I have searched for hours through past WUWT articles and not found it.
many thanks

Not my submission, more of a ‘tip’ to an interesting presentation.

Jason Kirkby gives an hour-long presentation on the CLOUD experiment at CERN. (Trying to pin down the Svensmark effect at the atomic level.)
Good graphics, good clear exposition by a particle physicist who came to the subject without any particular bias.

I posted this, I have others but I need to scan them.This is a late morning shower and rainbow, looking west between Glenwood Springs and Carbondale, Colorado. Taken Aug. 6, 2004, eight shots combined for this panorama. I have it at 6020 X 2706, this is 2402 X 1080, if anyone is interested.

Steve Keohane,
Great pic, love the double rainbow.

Hear, hear! Strict RT procedure is to never pointlessly say “over & out”. Hollywood has often presented this as the thing to say when it is completely wrong! You just say your call sign & then say out! Simples.

Russia’s English language news outlet, RussiaToday (or highlighted Yamal, Siberia for extreme tourism!
Frozen chosen choices abound: Stalin’s prison is being restored, and Yamal is home to the best preserved Mastadon’s. “Last year, 8,000 foreign visitors braved Yamal.” No word on tree-coring sampling yet. But perhaps a bit more exposure can put this sight-seeing option on the agenda in the name of sound science.

I didn’t know there even was a method of submitting photos to WUWT.
And I’m a bit on Smokey’s side. To me “over and out” would mean:- this is my last word on the subject; but you’re free to comment on it, knowing that I’m not coming back.
But I never was or ever had a DI. In fact FI was short for De-Ionised water. Well that’s weather related isn’t it.
So how do I post pictures to WUWT ?

May 4, 2011 9:59 am

That link is just another pseudo-science alarmist blog with faked charts. Look at this chart from your link.
Notice anything familiar? It’s a replica of Michael Mann’s debunked Hokey Stick chart, with the MWP and the LIA fraudulently erased [FYI, there was a greater temperature change during both the LIA and the MWP than there was over the past century].
The gradual warming trend from the LIA is hidden in those charts by the deliberate misuse of a zero trend line. Here is an example of what they did to make the current mild warming cycle look alarming.
It would save me a lot of typing by not linking to alarmist propaganda blogs.

May 4, 2011 10:38 am

JofK , still not found the one I was thinking of, which showed two ice cores without any particular change from the flat and had Mauna Loa added, but there’s this: which adds Mauna Loa from 1950,
and from the EPA a strange graph which goes further to ’65 for ice cores and then has Mauna Loa added,
Having problems getting to pages with old data, again.., but there’s definitely something fishy in ice cores data.
And for what climate scientists wanted to hide:

May 4, 2011 10:43 am

Smokey – John of Kent was looking for alarmist skullduggery…
I do recall, I think, it included Law Dome, a graph with two ice core records which stopped and then Mauna Loa was added to give the HS Effect. I can’t recall in which discussion someone posted it to me.
The Law Dome records now show an upward swing. But, it could just be me misremembering.

May 4, 2011 10:47 am

If you were just trying to give John of Kent the link he was asking for, my apologies. John needs to be more specific regarding his request. In the mean time, here are a few interesting temp/CO2 links:

May 4, 2011 11:04 am

Thanks chaps, very interesting stuff, but this one was a WUWT article which showed the skulduggery on an alarmists presentation. It showed that according to the Ice- core record, modern CO2 levels record as 200 something PPM in the 20th century and are actually [i]declining[/i]. and this is another “hide the decline”. When the ice core record and Mauna Loa are overlapped- they go in opposite directions!!!!!
I am interested because Jarowowski maintains that past ice core records vastly underestimate the true CO2 levels in the atmosphere at that time due to processes in the ice that dissovle CO2 out of the trapped air bubbles, thus creating a false low measurement of CO2 levels.
The implication is that 390ppm is nothing out of the ordinary and that the atmosphere [i]has[/i] been here before several times in recent geologic history.
Or at least that past CO2 atmospheric reconstructions have to be taken with a pinch of NaCl! 😉

John of Kent
This is what you may be looking for:
Ferdinand posts here fairly often. In section 4 he has info on the deletion of the high CO2 readings with references.

May 4, 2011 12:27 pm

John of Kent,
Maybe this?:

May 4, 2011 2:07 pm

JofK – see post 33 here from Mark Rostron:
It’s about the arbitrary it appears adjustments of the air at Law Dome to fit Mauna Loa. So perhaps the unadjusted/adjusted as Siple would show the effect you describe?

May 4, 2011 3:11 pm

This is odd:
“The law Dome ice core Co2 records show major growth in atmospheric C2 levels over the industrial period, except during 1935-1945 A.D. when levels stabilized or decreased slightly.”
How did the amount of CO2 produced during the 2nd World War compare with other 20th production? Shouldn’t it have shown a definite increase over the earlier industrial output?
I also found this analysis on ice/air difference which if I could get my head around it I think is saying something interesting:
And here too, the Law Dome data appears to not be from the Etheridge HS, but I haven’t found where from. Is the Etheridge completely out of sync with all the previous studies there and also with all the other nearby sites?

May 5, 2011 2:20 am

OK, last one. I think the skullduggery (COD… grin), is in this: the Etheridge data appears to only exist up until the 1960’s, the rest of the Hockey Stick CO2 line seams to have been added in from the Mauna Loa, yet the whole thing often presented as Law Dome. I could be wrong. Got a bit cross-eyed looking for all this.
Example, plus all the previous links showing Etheridge stopping earlier,
has a clear graph showing “Comparison of CO2 and Hadley Temperature Anomaly Trends 1880-2008 and the break between Law Dome and Mauna Loa.
But it has been spliced together:
“The Law Dome and Mauna Loa Co2 data overlap from 1960 to 1978, and agree quite closely over those years, so splicing them seems quite valid.”

May 5, 2011 3:18 am

And of course, I shall explain away my next typo as referring to the stitching of the splice..

It doesn’t look like they are okay with ‘borrowing’ pictures from other sites. This is from the rules:
“•Pictures submitted to WPOTD must be an original work, no images scanned from magazines, newspapers etc will be accepted. By submitting a picture, the submitter guarantees that the picture submitted is free of any copyright restrictions.”

May 7, 2011 3:06 am

again, interesting stuff, but I’m sure this article was on WUWT! ANd in the last few months.
I’ll have another look back though the archives.
