NYT: “What happened to Global Warming?”

Guest essay by Eric Worrall

NYT rolling out the tired global warming makes winter storms more extreme narrative.

How climate change is affecting winter storms.


By John Schwartz

The major winter storm that hit the Eastern United States on Wednesday and Thursday probably prompted some people to ask, “What happened to global warming?”

But although it’s becoming increasingly clear that climate change does have an effect on storms, the relationship can be complex and, yes, counterintuitive. “There were these expectations that winter was basically going to disappear on us,” said Judah Cohen, director of seasonal forecasting at AER, a company that provides information to clients about weather and climate-related risk.

Although winters are becoming warmer and somewhat milder over all, extreme weather events have also been on the increase, and especially in the Northeastern United States, as Dr. Cohen pointed out in a recent paper in the journal Nature Climate Change. From the winter of 2008-9 until 2017-18, there were 27 major Northeast winter storms, three to four times the totals for each of the previous five decades.

If global warming to date has caused a three to four fold increase in severe winter storms, imagine the bitterly cold weather the next few decades of global warming will bring.

We must act now, before global warming causes us all to freeze to death!

So, as the world gets warmer the winters get colder. Computer models…. Who programed the models? How are they programed…. I am starting to think we have stopped evolving.

They couldnt even get their facts correct on a recent story about a so called ISIS insider which had a big feature based on this persons story. A total fabrication in which the insider may have never been to Syria and they just used pictures from the web.
Classic case of ‘its too good the check properly’. Its an ongoing saga of their journos lying to the editors about facts or background.

DEC. 18, 2020…LA Examiner
The New York Times has retracted significant portions of “Caliphate,” its award-winning podcast about ISIS, after Canadian police arrested its key source for allegedly perpetrating a terrorist hoax.

On Friday, the New York Times published a lengthy editors’ note explaining the retraction, which followed an internal review concluding that certain episodes “did not meet our standards for accuracy.”

In other words …We obeyed our commitment to the Left Postmodern Narrative and got scammed again…

Actually, the UN IPCC CMIP5 models say it should be getting warmer in NH winters. This study is just another example of CliSci saying we should believe the models’ multi-centennial “projections,” while simultaneously believing climate change is currently making NH winters cooler.

I don’t know about the “circum-polar vortex getting wavier due to decreased temperature variance between mid-latitude and polar regions” for the northern hemisphere, but for the southern hemisphere that is baloney. Here (Argentina) we see neutral ENSO to weak-to-normal La Niña associated with decreased latitude wind flow, allowing the Antarctic equivalent vortex to make far northern excursions. The CAGW crowd won’t stop modifying their predictions until glaciers cover them up. Wait for it.

But glaciers are made of snow right?
And you only get snow when the air is moist, i.e. oceans are warm.
So just like snow itself, glaciers are a result of warming.
So just as retreating glaciers are a sign of global warming, advancing glaciers are also a sign of global warming.

Just like both less snow and more snow are signs of global warming.

As glaciers start to advance again, evidence suggests that the Earth may be entering a new ice age. This proposition is not in dispute. To know what changes may be under way at the moment is more difficult.

The approximate 100,000 year component of the Milankovitch cycles is caused by a change in the eccentricity of earth’s orbit. As the pull of the planets causes the eccentricity to increase, and if the earth is in the portion of it’s orbit which is furthest from the sun during winter, the winters are longer and colder.

Interesting to note that this past fall, the northern hemisphere had some rather significant cold records set, and now we have had some record-breaking snow. At the same time, we are being told of an interesting conjunction of the planets Jupiter and Saturn in the evening. So there they sit, the two largest planets, on the opposite side of earth from the sun and working to pull the earth a little bit further away from the sun. My, my, my!

BobM
Reply to  Peter W
December 20, 2020 5:02 pm

Actually, Jupiter and Saturn are on the other side of the Solar System, not quite in opposition, but pulling Earth slightly toward the Sun. They are visible low in the Southwestern sky less than an hour after sunset, and then set a couple hours later, so they are slightly to the “left” of the Sun as we view it at sundown. To see the conjunction we are looking past the Sun to the other side of the Solar System.

Both planets were way up in the Summer sky at night, pulling us “away” from the Sun when Earth was on the same side of the Sun during Summer.

You are partially correct, of course. The problem with your reply is that now the sun is essentially between us and those planets, and the distance is significantly greater. Presumably come spring and summer they will be able to get to work on our orbit again, full force.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not a believer in the Climate crisis scam, but the Earth is in the nearly circular (but not quite) orbit phase of the Milankovitch cycle. We’re a bit closer to the sun during Northern Hemisphere winters making NH winters a bit shorter and a bit milder (about 7% more solar insolation). As the pole prescesses, in about 12,000 years, at a similar orbital eccentricity, the Earth will be furthest from the sun during NH winter making NH winter longer and harsher.

Be careful what you wish for.
Extreme weather is what you get in a desert

And no, Climate Change does not create deserts.
Soil Erosion does.
That is after all The Definition of a desert.
i.e. Highly eroded/weathered soil devoid of organic material and its attendant water storage capacity
THEN, the Climate falls apart.

Once one has been created, it will NOT just spontaneously disappear.

Lack of rainfall (water) makes for arid areas frequently referred to as deserts.

When thunderstorms occur in arid and semi-arid areas, if the rain makes it to the ground, one can follow the thunderstorm’s track by the resulting greenery and wildflowers.
Plants, seeds and roots that lay dormant for years respond luxuriously to the water.

When thatrain does fall, avoid the washes, gullies and even ditches as they can fill very quickly.

When moisture laden winds cross the Sahara, the Sahara has been lush and verdant. When dry winds cross the Sahara, plants die and the sand dunes become pervasive.

African Rock Art: Tassili-n-Ajjer (?8000 B.C.–?)

Thousands of years ago, the Sahara desert was a lush and verdant place more akin to a savannah, where giraffes, hippos, and crocodiles roamed, farmers let their dairy herds graze, and people ate a lot of fish. A vast lake – bigger than the Caspian Sea, the world’s biggest lake today – resided in Central Africa, sprawling 400,000 square kilometers (150,000 square miles), earning it the moniker Lake Mega Chad.

Sometime around 7,000 years ago, the wet, humid land became one of the most inhospitable places on Earth; the vast sandy desert we recognize today. Lake Chad still exists, but it’s a shadow of its former self.”

The desert blooms around oasis. The Sahara has good soil, it just has no water.

The Sahara is disappearing spontaneously on it’s southern border as CO2 makes greening possible.

To reply to previous claims of yours. Repeated forest fires do not create deserts.
The forests of the American west have been burning every couple of years for at least 10’s of thousands of years, and they grow back every year.
The Sahara formed when it dried up.

Atlantic Hurricanes (“extreme weather”) all begin near the west coast of Africa and migrate east. Do they start because of the hot desert air? Or just because the water is warmer off coast?

three to four times the totals for each of the previous five decades

Scanning data for a lot of regions will inevitably find some where the results are a multiple of previous time periods. People who make such claims may be uneducated about natural variability and statistics or deliberately lying.

As often as I read or hear it, I can’t get over how easily intelligent, knowledgeable people are seduced into using “climate change” instead of either ‘anthropogenic’ global warming, (AGW) or global cooling. It’s either one or the other caused by humans, not both, when it fits the narrative. The term “climate change” is no more informative than saying “seasonal” weather.

“Climate change”, as it is used by politicians, the media and their lap-dog “scientists” is an appeal to ambiguity … equivocation, a logical fallacy, “doublespeak”. Of course there is climate change; it’s the default condition of our atmosphere. Of course humans have had an effect, as has all life on this planet. The issue is: by how much and is it a concern … and can anyone prove it? Otherwise “climate change” is just a pointless tautology.

The only thing climate alarmists have to hang their speculative hat on is atmospheric storm fronts.

The Earth is not getting “hotter and hotter”, so they fall back on claiming the Earth’s weather is changing because of human-derived CO2, and temperatures don’t matter, because CO2 is ultimately the cause whether it gets hot or cold. They are trying to cover all their bases but it’s a pretty lame effort.

Global Warming causes colder weather. Yeah, right.

I believe it was Michael Mann who claimed not long ago that even if we have a few decades of falling temperatures, it wouldn’t mean that Human-caused Climate Change was invalidated.

The alarmists are trying to have it both ways. They want to be seen as correct if it warms and correct if it cools. Being correct no matter which way the wind blows must be a good job, if you can get it. I want one of those.

This graph of the temperature anomalies at the Arctic has not been de-trended:comment image
It was just as relatively warm 1930s and 40s when the atmospheric CO2 concentration was ~ 310 ppm.
It is also apparent that Arctic was cooling 1945 – 1964 concurrent with an increased concentration ~305 – 320 ppm.
That doesn’t imply that CO2 is not a greenhouse gas just that an increasing concentration is not a necessary condition for warming and the current CO2 obsession is an example of the single cause or reduction fallacy.

Tom Abbott
Reply to  Chris Hanley
December 21, 2020 6:24 am

Yes, it’s not any warmer today than it was back during the Early Twentieth Century, yet the CO2 concentration has increased from 310ppm to 410ppm, and as you mentioned, the temperatures actually decreased from 1940 to 1980, while CO2 concentrations were increasing.

There’s no correlation between temperatures and CO2 concentrations. CO2 is obviously not the control knob of the Earth’s temperatures.

In 1987, James Hansen said the Earth would be 3°C warmer in 2020.
Well, it’s 2020 and it’s only 0.4°C warmer.

The NYT must know its (gullible) audience and the dementia that lurks there.

Well I have carefully researched the frequency of storms in Canada, and they have not increased at all (graphs are basically flat) for the past 100 years. Maybe the US Eastern seaboard is different, but that would mean this is not Global climate change.

More spin on “warming will cause an ice age”. Getting the masses ready for a possible cooling trend that they’ll blame on “climate change” requiring the same “remedies” as before.

Agenda journalism to the rescue! That goes with Agenda Science and The Great Carbon Tax Legislation Crusade.

One always has to ask the climate changes: you really want control over your life, don’t you?

Global Warming is responsible if:

  • the weather is hotter
  • the weather is cooler
  • there is more precipitation
  • there is less precipitation
  • there are more storms
  • there are fewer storms
  • you suffer from the heartbreak of psoriasis
  • you get ring around the collar

Any questions?

If the Arctic is warming at twice the average rate then somewhere must be busy cooling to keep the average in line. Has anybody found out where that is yet?
