eccentri1

UPDATE: 8:30AM PST Sunday 2/12/17 This is some sort of glitch with WordPress.com, and it published last night instead of Eric Worrall’s piece on the French giving asylum to Climate Scientists. Is suspect it had something to do with me approving it on my phone, and having a weak signal.

It did make for an interesting discussion, however. I’ve added a featured image that sort of represents the discussion so far.

Carry on. – Anthony

The emergency spillway is in danger of collapse.

LAKE OROVILLE, Calif. – There is a mandatory evacuation order in place for low-lying levels of Oroville and areas downstream. It is an order for IMMEDIATE evacuation.
A hazardous situation is developing with the Oroville Dam auxiliary spillway. Operation of the auxiliary spillway has lead to severe erosion that could lead to a failure of the structure. Failure of the auxiliary spillway structure will result in an uncontrolled release of flood waters from Lake Oroville.
In response to this developing situation, DWR is increasing water releases to 100,000 cubic feet per second.
Immediate evacuation from the low levels of Oroville and areas downstream is ordered.

A video about Elizabeth Warren’s lie to make sure all readers understand the “Pocahontas” allusion.
(Note: while Pocahontas was actually a Powhatan, not a Cherokee as Warren claims she is, the nickname is an apt appellation for one grandly claiming privileges based on a lie about being part American Indian. Further, please note that just as it does not demean a queen to paint the queen’s crown onto the exposé portrait of the lying poseur claiming a right to that crown, calling Warren “Pocahontas” belittles her, not American Indians (and finally, also note, in my experience, most Indians do not mind being called “Indians.”)

It is actually a blistering attack on that skeptical web blog WUWT, containing, as usual, nothing of substance, devoid of content, and proving absolutely nothing.
It contains every single concrete proof of CAGW ever submitted for independent expert review, and that last paragraph has the formula proving that the doubling of CO2 will raise global temperatures by 8.5 degrees C.
This formula can only be seen and comprehended by the truly faithful who will find it convincing, even with their eyes closed.
It is a wonderful contribution. Thanks Anthony.

Have you seen this on the Guardian? Pseudo-science at its most silly.
Humans causing climate to change 170 times faster than natural forces.
The Drake Equation did it first.
It takes a load of unknowable parameters, gives them arbitrary values and makes them into a sciency looking equation.
For the Drake Equation it says there must be aliens out there. Because they want to believe.
The Anthropocene is the same. With a touch of “Mike’s Nature Trick” spliced in.

It is a secret code to all sceptics to get prepared for the imminent start of a new Ice Ace.
“The Earth’s orbit varies between nearly circular and mildly elliptical (its eccentricity varies). When the orbit is more elongated, there is more variation in the distance between the Earth and the Sun, and in the amount of solar radiation, at different times in the year”
Increasing eccentricity means far less solar radiation in the N. Hemisphere’s summers, the winter ice fails to melt, the Ice age is imminent.
There you have it.

Well, Mr. Kernodle (nice humor and graphic, btw 🙂 ),
some people are delightfully {taking a bow} eccentric…
and others are:
Just plain stupid.

(youtube — “The planet has a fever.”)
Okay. Gore is just a run-of-the-mill con man, not overly bright, but, not stupid. Those who believe him are.

Uh…I don’t get it. What does the graph have to do with an open thread?

Hi, Pamela,
I may be mis-reading what you meant, but, in case I understood you:
When this thread was first posted in the middle of the PST night, and for over 7 hours after, the only content in the post (by Anthony) was “… .” So, we all just cracked jokes about it (and were a bit concerned, too, as hour 7 rolled around). That is, it wasn’t really an “open thread,” we just sort of turned it into one. Mr. Kernodle’s comment, if that’s what you are referring to, is just expanding on Anthony’s funny graphic above (for quite awhile, Anthony’s eccentric circle image was not visible, at least to me …. another little glitch, perhaps, lol).
HOPING the above info. is helpful to you. Apologies if I misunderstood your question.
THIS Valentine’s Day should be a very special one for you, I think 🙂 (smiling and smiling and smiling for you).
Take care,
Janice

lol, Pamela, you do NOT suck at this, and, (lol, the irony…) it was the jerk who posted it to youtube — refusing to let us watch it here (even though it is a very public video!).
Your video was better for “deer in the headlights,”
but, here’s one for a “Plan B” for your EXCELLENT humor. 🙂

Thanks for the neat video to watch (I went youtube and watched it). 🙂

This mistake (WordPress, Anthony, whatever) has become so humorous because it is not real. A mistake. The mistake of CAGW is not so funny.
(Wish I knew how to change the title of https://wattsupwiththat.com/2017/02/12/164142/#comment-2423663 from “Godzilla” to “Gorezilla.”)
Guess I should have worked for NASA or have been a Mann underling to obtain the expertise to change the past.

Gore got a Nobel Prize (and a bunch of bucks) for his PowerPoint mess.
Being noble may not always carry a cash prize with it, but it does make it easier to sleep at night.

Elmer,
That video was fascinating. I have no idea whether or not this is a plausible deductive theory or not, but, the detective story sure is neat. 🙂
I just read the comments on youtube beneath the above video. I wish someone would address infantryhawks’ question directly (it had yet to be, as of a few minutes ago) about why the runic syntax so closely resembled late 1800’s Swedish (as opposed to c. 1390’s Swedish). The carbon dating response by Elroy there did not address infantry’s question completely.
I have a feeling that you are legit, elmer, so, I’m posting this link for your gofundme here for WUWT readers’ convenience. I hope you can raise enough for this interesting historical sleuthing!

I answer that question later in the comments, I think Scott Wolter does a good job answering this question by traveling to the island of Gotland and found those Runes on grave slabs carved in the 14th Century. He made another documentary and wrote a book about it called the Hooked X.

That image is of my Great Grandfather his mother and his wife who came over from Norway in the mid 1800’s. It was a tough life.

Not meaning to be picky, but, there was a line used that I’ve heard used in other context along the lines of “This will change history”.
Well, no. History is what happened. What might change is what we, today, know about it.

Some might say that history is the study of past events and this discovery could cause the history books to be reprinted and they hate doing that.

Dear Mr. Hansen,
With the “en,” it’s Norwegian or Danish, I think? I’m really sorry to hear that. I hope, somehow, you can spend as little time with the two to your left as possible. We all have “poison people” enter our lives from time to time. They can only hurt you (and you cannot do any good to them — that takes a miracle). If they are living in your home, that is so sad. You have, thus, no loving “home” — it has been invaded. Stay away — MOVE if you can!
It is far better to be lonely and peaceful than with others and miserable. If they need assistance — hire someone!
And, I have a sinking feeling that you really have very little choice in the matter.
I take back every hard thing I have said of you, Mr. Hansen. I know, believe me, what it is to live with such people. You have my heartfelt sympathy — and prayers from now on.
You may not crave affection as I do (being a stoic Scandihoovian, 🙂 ), but, you DO deserve to be respected and valued. GO WHERE YOU ARE LOVED (or, at least, treated with kindness and common courtesy — or, at the VERY least, where you have peace).
Take care.
Your WUWT friend,
Janice

In the meantime, hang out with us at WUWT (we get kind of silly kind of angry kind of creepy kind of hyper-serious sometimes… but, we are always, deep down
(some so deep that it still hasn’t been observed, but I still have hope for you EVEN THOUGH YOU MAKE ME SO MAD I YELL AT YOU SOMETIMES (and you know who you are, all of you, lol))

Janice ==> Thank you for your heartfelt comment and good counsel.
Hansen in my case is Danish — but many generations ago when my soldier-of-fortune great-great-grandfather came to settle in America, after fighting for the Prussians and then for the British in India.
In reality, I only meant the caption of the image, “Increasing Eccentricity” — a joke my wife and I share. My wife and I live on our sailboat — a 42 foot catamaran — and have spent 10 of the last 13 years doing humanitarian work in the Northern Caribbean (DR, PR, USVI, BVI). As you know, for the last couple of years, I have been occasionally writing here at WUWT and over at Judith Curry’s.
Your concern and advice sound professional. Are you a counselor? I was once, myself, in a place far away and a time long ago — and your advice is good and sound — those who listen to you will benefit.
Thank you for your caring and desire to help others, an attribute to be valued above all others.
Kip

Ej! THANK YOU! How kind of you to take the time to tell me that (esp. after reading a certain inexplicably angry man’s remark about me — I can very well understand that my personality rubs some people the wrong way, but why so angry?). Well, YOU are a first class coach/encourager. And SO creative with the use of symbols. I could see that thumb’s up Tribble-like “person.” Nice! 🙂
Say, you sound just like my WUWT friend, EJ — is Ej “EJ”? If so, still praying about the new goal and about getting past the past…., etc..
Take care.

Hi, Kip,
Thank you for your thoughtful reply. You are welcome (even though you did not need it — smile). I appreciate your generous assessment of my counseling ability. No, I’m not even a semi-professional/volunteer counselor. I’ve just encountered much helpful advice via some very difficult people (and the counseling I experienced with them) or via troubled friends and their counselors and read a LOT and did a little research and attended some NAMI (National Alliance for the Mentally Ill) classes (to try to help and to cope with some difficult people). And, you are right: caring goes a long way.
What a WONDERFUL life you and your wife have created! Here’s to the next 10 years! 🙂
Take care,
Janice

And now over to Gavin O’Hansen at the climate center for the latest weather and what it means –.
“If the droughts continue to be between the rain, fog, and snow the models say even more weather will dominate the climate, and scientists are very, very concerned that it will never settle till all future generations have paid our dues.”
