I watch the US’s ABC World News Tonight pretty much nightly. I look for references to “Climate Change” and normally hear one or more every night. However, this week, thanks to the blow up in Afghanistan, there were no utterances on two nights. Amazing! Unfortunately, there was a reference in a commercial one night. Sigh.

Global Warming ™ causes the air to get hotter. Hotter air is less dense. Parachutes are less effective in less dense air.

See, it’s not difficult. It’s also why planes keep falling out of the sky. Ask Malaysia Airlines…

and that, like the Sahara, is because climate change puts more moisture in the atmosphere. It has never been too warm to snow in those places all year, but it has been too dry.

Griff, by now this site should have taught you that for every “unusual” heat event cited, there is an equivalent “unusual” cold event.
This occurs throughout any and all spans of time you care to choose.
Weather-wise, no events are occurring more frequently than before, nor of any more intensity.
The only effect in play is what slow learners you climate porn addicts are.

The Atacama Desert in Chile is the driest place in the world. There, there has been a great snowfall and an extensive layer of snow covers much of the landscape. At some points the thickness layer has reached 15 centimeters. Because of this snowfall, many roads have had to be cut.

Driest, not coldest… the desert, like the Sahara, has always been cold enough in winter for snow, but there hasn’t been the moisture in the atmosphere. It is the increase in atmospheric moisture which now produces snow and that is clearly down to climate change

Hi Griffo
“It is the increase in atmospheric moisture which produced snow and that is clearly” nothing to do with climate change, but in the case of Atacama desert indeed it might be human’s doing:

“Despite modern views of Atacama Desert as fully devoid of vegetation, in pre-Columbian and Colonial times a large flatland area known as Pampa del Tamarugal was a woodland but demand for firewood associated with silver and saltpeter mining in the 18th and 19th centuries resulted in widespread deforestation”.-wikipedia

There is no “climate change” that has not occurred many times before, depending on conditions elsewhere. The Atacama desert has been stable for thousands of yrs. and it’s “climate” periods can be ~ 300 +/- years long. There is no evidence of human causation.

Years ago, quite a few years ago, we used to play drink along a Dynasty.

Each time you saw a character with a drink in hand you had to down one. On reflection it’s just as well the programme was only 25 minutes or so, long.

If you were to do this with the mention of climate change and the BBC (or perhaps reading the Guardian in your Gazebo) you wouldn’t last 10 minutes.

As us old guys know, Beach Blanket Bingo was a beach party movie in the 60’s. It was one of several starring Frankie Avalon and Annette Funicello. Personally, I never thought Annette was very pretty, but I know most guys liked her big hooters.
Real big wave rider, Greg Noll, hated those movies with guys surfing those “dangerous” 3 foot waves while the girls on the beach looked on anxiously. He was one of the pioneers of big wave riding and was one of the personalities shown in the big wave movie “Riding Giants”, a must see for anyone who has any interest in waves. In an extraordinary twist, while refreshing myself on a few facts just now, I found out Noll died this past June.

I grew up in the 60’s and would argue that 97% of the guys cared not a whit about big wave rider Greg Noll, and much preferred watching Annette Funicello and her big hooters bounce around in a beach party movie with Frankie Avalon or whomever the hell else was there to get Annette into a bikini.

Reply to  Tom in Florida
August 28, 2021 6:33 pm

I grew up in the 1950s and 1960s.
I remember Annette long before she developed physically. Frankly, every guy I knew was just as smitten from her earliest appearances in the Mouseketeers.
M-I-C, K-E-Y, and not that loser manniacal.

Annette outgrowing the Disney Club was disappointing to us who were a little younger.

Nor did Annette bounce around much in any of the beach movies. Wild gyrations and bouncing were left to the other ladies.

e.g. Teri Garr was often one of the uncredited young ladies dancing in the beach films, both with Annette and with Presley.

Most of America lived far from decent surfing beaches. I’ve no clue who Noll was or what parts he played.
None of us where I grew up cared about surfing. Only kids that fell for the image of a guy with a surfboard surrounded by ladies fell for the fantasy.

In my neighborhood, they mostly fell for the image sold by Hollywood of a guy with a guitar surrounded by ladies. Early in the 60s, it was folk guitars; by the late fifties it was electric guitars.

I still play the guitar, though it was never a lady magnet.

In the early ’60s growing up in the US we had a TV quiz show called “Truth or Consequences” with MC / moderator Bob Barker. We need to revive it …. “Climate Truth or Consequences.” The next spinoff would be climate modeling “truth or consequences.” And then we can have the next series “Biden Truth or Consequences….” except the answer to that is obvious.

No, it is not a fun drinking game, CR.

It would be a guaranteed Trip-to-the-hospital-due-to-alcohol-poisoning game.

Pro tip 1: Be sure to have about 30 shot glasses lined up and filled prior to starting. There will probably not be enough time to refill a shot glass between mentions of Climate Change!

Pro tip 2: Practice downing shots with either hand. You can reach for the next shot with the empty hand while downing a shot with the other hand. Left, right, left, right…

Pro tip 3: Call for the ambulance about 20 minutes prior to turning on your propaganda outlet of choice, aka the ‘news’. You may not be conscious enough to call after the ‘news’ has been on for 15 minutes.

What are shot glasses?
The drinking games I almost remember, handed around bottles. If the previous drinker managed to have the bottle pried from their fingers.

Games were short. Quite a few guys were moved to the shower in the bathroom for the inevitable purging cleansing.

No deaths, no poisonings. Chugging the bottle usually got the drinker kicked from the game. We weren’t rich enough to buy drinks for real alcoholics or selfish idiots.
Especially, at night when it was impossible to buy another bottle.

Nowadays, if someone tries to chug my Wild Turkey, Cenizo Mescal, various 100% agave blanco tequilas, tawny ports, Pinot Noirs, freezer kept Vodka, Laird whiskies, St. George’s or small batch Rye or similar spirits, I’ll still take away the bottle then give them a couple of bucks for convenience store plastic bottle formaldehyde.

I’ll even drive them to the nearest convenience store. I won’t wait, but that’s a story for another day.

I had a bit of mental instability just now. Someone said that Indian monsoons were made more erratic by climate change. Wait! Wait a mo! The erratics ARE the climate change. So how could climate change cause itself? I felt my mind slipping over the brink into a sort of despair or depression. Then I came to! It’s GLOBAL WARMING that causes the climate change that causes erratics! Meanwhile Indian harvests break records every year. Due to global warming inter alia. Let’s give up climate change.

There is a difference between the events, isn’t there?

Meteorological bodies have referred to the rainstorm in China – which saw a year’s worth of rainfall in three days – as a one-in-1,000-year weather event. The rainfall broke hourly and daily records of the 70 years of collected data.

The heavy rainfall in the south of North Rhine-Westphalia and north of Rhineland-Palatinate in Germany produced accumulations which averaged 100 to 150 mm (3.9 to 5.9 in) in 24 hours, equivalent to more than a month’s worth of rain. In Reifferscheid, 207 mm (8.1 in) fell within a nine-hour period while Cologne observed 154 mm (6.1 in) in 24 hours. Some of the affected regions may not have seen rainfall of this magnitude in the last 1,000 years.

The searing heat that scorched western Canada and the US at the end of June was “virtually impossible” without climate change, say scientists. In their study, the team of researchers says that the deadly heatwave was a one-in-a-1,000-year event.

The scale of the recent events and the spate of such events in recent decades clearly show they are NOT variability, but a disturbing trend.

Major flood events result from the interaction of atmospheric and hydrological processes. Prior to major flooding, the catchment area experienced prolonged wet conditions and saturated soils. The large amount of precipitation and the saturated soil in May 2013 were the direct results of the atmospheric conditions that prevailed during this period. May 2013 was characterized by a dipole-like structure in the sea level pressure (SLP) field, characterized by an anticyclonic circulation over the central Atlantic Ocean and a cyclonic circulation over the central part of Europe and the North Sea (Fig. 2c). Moreover, the second half of May and the first days of June were characterized at the 500-mb level by an atmospheric blocking circulation that persisted for more than 16 days. This system featured a cyclonic circulation over the Alpine region and Germany, an anticyclonic circulation over the northern part of the Scandinavian Peninsula and eastern Europe, and a cyclonic circulation over Siberia. The cyclonic circulation over the Alpine region and Germany, which is typical for spring and summer floods over central Europe and is known as “Zugstrasse Vb” *) (Mudelsee et al. 2004), advected a lot of moisture from the Mediterranean Sea toward the Alps. (My emphasis)

*)Vb low pressure

Predicting the June 2013 European Flooding Based on Precipitation, Soil Moisture, and Sea Level Pressure
You see, as the flood this year also has been a Vb low pressure system, known for heavy rain.
In so far, not extraordinary, not unusual.

The results of research show a high relevance for the occurrence of floods due to Vb-tracks for Central Europe. Low-pressure areas tracking Vb have the potential to create critical floods because of their unusually high amount of precipitation. This knowledge is used to generate hydrographs, which represent the peak processing of the flood in the entire catchment. Using a new catalogue of Vb-tracks, it can be shown that between the years 1959 and 2015 Vb-tracks have been responsible for at least 30% of all observed flood events during the period April to October. In the summer months, every second Vb-track induces a flood. Furthermore, it is clear that in around 60% of all observed cases Vb-tracks are sequential and at least one other low-pressure area follows on this track within a month.

Rainfall-runoff simulation of extreme flood hydrographs with reference to Vb-tracks to follow up an impact analysis of combined flood retention reservoirs using the example of the Isar catchment
You see, griff a well known, not unusual weather pattern, no reason to worry about. 😀

While this summer’s weather in western Canada has been hotter and drier than normal, the climate statistics for a number of areas that have experienced higher than normal wildfire activity don’t support your “team of researchers”. Merritt BC has been surrounded by wildfires and is not far away from the village of Lytton that was razed by a deliberately set fire. Please check out the 20 year temperature/precipitation stats from the link below.

With the exception of a few ten-thousandths of a percent of CO2 increase, how exactly toy does the current western U.S. drought differ from the decade long drought and subsequent dust bowl of the 1930s?

Meteorological bodies have referred to the rainstorm in China – which saw a year’s worth of rainfall in three days – as a one-in-1,000-year weather event. The rainfall broke hourly and daily records of the 70 years of collected data.”

Nope. Wrong, again!
That was the published accounts of news sources. Propagandized news sources that couldn’t be bothered to check records or the history behind specious claims.

That a new city in China only recently started record keeping utterly fails to support absurd statistics, especially when neighboring towns have records dating back hundreds of years and have recorded similar instances.

The heavy rainfall in the south of North Rhine-Westphalia and north of Rhineland-Palatinate in Germany produced accumulations which averaged 100 to 150 mm (3.9 to 5.9 in) in 24 hours, equivalent to more than a month’s worth of rain. In Reifferscheid, 207 mm (8.1 in) fell within a nine-hour period while Cologne observed 154 mm (6.1 in) in 24 hours. Some of the affected regions may not have seen rainfall of this magnitude in the last 1,000 years.”

Utter BS.
There are woodcut prints of worse floods in these areas in the last couple of centuries.

Still a fraud giffie.

The searing heat that scorched western Canada and the US at the end of June was “virtually impossible” without climate change, say scientists. In their study, the team of researchers says that the deadly heatwave was a one-in-a-1,000-year event.”

Again, horse piles!

That wasn’t “searing heat”. Nor have those events never happened before or even never happened recently.. One day barely set a new high temperature for that location!

At this point, giffiepoo.

You have made extraordinary claims which require evidence.

Provide evidence for every claim you’ve made. Evidence that comes from long term unadjusted or smudged databases, not specious claims from biased sources.

Griffy, in order to have a rational conversation, both parties should be rational. You have shown a remarkable lack of rationality over your many delusional posts so I lost all hope some time ago of having a rational conversation with you. As to ‘first grade name calling’, I hardly think so, dear – I always use your name, albeit with a ‘y’ on the end as a friendly gesture. You really do have severe problems, don’t you, dear?

I see griff is still trying to push that claim that anything differs from last year is proof of global warming.
Who cares how often it occurred in the past, because this time it’s CO2 whut caused it.

Climate change, the latest propaganda iteration of global warming is apparently caused by extensive arson around the Mediterranean.

Am thinking along the lines of it being the ‘other way round’
Along the lines of the much vaunted Polluter Pays principle – when said and done that what all this Climate Science is – pollution.

Media presenters would then be under an obligation NOT to mention CC, unless it was demonstrably provable that it did have a bearing on what they were talking about.

If it ‘just slipped out’, they personally would be required to compensate the viewers/readers who spotted it, recorded it or grabbed the screenshot..

Mmmm, yes, I like that. That one’s got legs, lets see it run.

Late thought:
As it is actually Real (what is called) Pollution in the form of NOx, SOx, Soot/Smoke, Farmland/City/Cement/Iron works, Traffic and Quarrying Dust that is causing the observed Global Greening – is it possible that the ‘pollution’ I’m referring to here has any, so far, unknown benefits?

It is such a big & magical world, plus, there is certainly ‘something‘ out there with an awesome & wicked sense of humour, I would not be surprised.

There is legitimate reasoning for this: balancing radiation risks between Galactic cosmic rays (reduced during solar maximum) and solar radiation from what would be a weak sunspot cycle.

I don’t think that is correct. But I am pretty sure that they will be flying away from the Sun, towards Mars, so they’ll be traveling in the same direction as the radiation, so it won’t hit them as hard.

We can expect US National Climate Charlatans to blame Climate Change on the strengthening of Tropical Storm Ida, headed for Louisiana on Sunday landfall, to possibly a Major Cat 3 just before landfall.

My Ap/Kp Geomagnetic – Atlantic Basin Rapid Intensification (RI) hypothesis is in full play on Ida this weekend.

Yesterday, on the Sun, Active Region 12859 (2859) let loose a C3.0 Xray flare and simultaneously launched a full-halo CME towards Earth. That CME and the solar wind distrubances it brings will begin hitting Earth, and buffeting the geomagneticenvironment starting Saturday afternoon-evening and into the Sunday morning. From this CME arrival and geomagnetic disturbance, we expect significant jumps of the Kp and Ap indices to cocur at that time.

Accordingly, my Ap/Kp Geomagnetic – Atlantic Basin RI hypothesis strongly predicts that Ida will then simultaneously undergo a near- to full-on RI event just prior to landfall Sunday afternoon somewhere along the northern Gulf Coast.

Bad Juju for the people there.

And predictably, the Climate Charlatans and Quacks like Mikey Mann and Kerry Emanuel of MIT will undoubtedly blame the nature of this tropical cyclone intensification of the manufactured climate scam.

Attached is the SDO image at 13.1 nm (EUV) of AR 2858 as it flares and launches the CME on 8/26/2021 at 1805:32 GMT.

The SOHO Lasco C3 image of the CME leaving the sun is attached. The faint Halo CME is seen on the left side of the disc image from 08/26/2021 at 2118 GMT.
This is NOT a major CME by any means. But still enough that it will almost certainly produce a minor-midscale (station Kp’s > 4, and Ap > 20, but probably 40 or more) geomagnetic storm starting Saturday afternoon going to Sunday morning.

You can “watch” a 4 day archive animated GIF of the Lasco C2 movie here:
comment image

Note: there was more impressive CME on 08/24/21 at 0614 GMT from a solar disc western limb filament eruption (not AR associated) that led to a limb darkening event on the SDO EUV imagers. This CME did not hit Earth directly but affecting the solar wind enough to elevate the current Kp stations readings today (27 August).

Climate change(from global warming) has been defined so that it’s responsible for everything bad.

It causes great harm to good creatures and things……. humans, polar bears, butterflies, honey bees, crops, tree frogs, beer…normal weather…..etc.

But at the same time, it provides the optimal environment for all bad creatures and things to multiply with massive abundance…….ticks, mosquitoes, flies, roaches, weeds, virus’s, extreme weather.

Amazing. Same conditions (same climate/weather) for ALL things but somehow, increasing CO2 (the building block of all life) kills off all good things, while acting like a beneficial gas, to provide optimal conditions for all bad things, pathogens and pests.

Applying this irrefutable law of climate change, that was discovered by the United Nations in the late 1980’s, which caused them to create the IPCC, to spread the knowledge of it, we should assume that The Little Ice age, and the previous glacial period, that was even colder…… should have greatly helped the cold loving good life and killed off the heat loving bad life.
One would have thought that it was THEN that humans and life would have seen explosive development and flourished with all that pesky, harmful life virtually eliminated (-:

Trying to make this new law of life/death resulting from human caused climate change fit in with the reality …….we also need to redefine photosynthesis.

CO2 = pollution

Sun + water + minerals + CO2 POLLUTION = O2 +Food/Sugars DYING PLANETin

To interpret all the satellite images and authentic measurements of our planet using empirical data/observations so that they support this new law means………our planet is facing Death by Greening!
