Biden Declares War on Heat

Guest post by David Middleton

Biden announces plan to combat extreme heat caused by climate change
Ben Adler·Senior Climate Editor
Mon, September 20, 2021

[…]

Yahoo! News

What about the extreme heat that we already had before Al Gore invented Gorebal Warming? Is Biden OK with that extreme heat?

Back to Ben’s article…

The Biden administration on Monday morning announced an interagency plan to deal with the effects of frequent extreme heat waves caused by global warming.

Yahoo! News

Really?

Does anyone see a trend? Note: -2σ would actually be a negative %. U.S. Climate Extremes Index (CEI) (NOAA)

What else ya got Ben?

Extreme heat is now the leading weather-related killer in the United States, and it is becoming more common and severe. 

Yahoo! News

Unless “cold” isn’t weather-related, it appears that “heat” generally trails cold in the body count column…

U.S. heat and cold related deaths. (EPA heat, EPA cold)

After getting everything wrong, Ben lays out the Biden administration’s plan to fight heat…

Limiting workplace exposure. The Department of Labor will develop regulations and processes…

[…]

Helping families cool off. The Department of Health and Human Services has issued guidance giving states, tribes and territories the flexibility to use funds already designated for assisting low-income households with heating bills and instead direct those funds for air conditioning. 

[…]

Advising local efforts to fight the “urban heat island effect.” The streets and buildings of cities tend to worsen extreme heat, which has a disproportionate impact on Black and Latino neighborhoods.

[…]

Calling all experts. The National Integrated Heat Health Information System, an interagency group put together by the White House…

[…]

Yahoo! News

So…

  1. Regulate common sense.
  2. Turn on the air conditioner.
  3. What? I thought the UHI was a skeptic thingy.
  4. Hire more bureaucrats with PhD’s in useless subjects.

Regarding, air conditioning… Yeah, we already knew that one.

“The answer is blowing in the…” window

Abstract

Heat is the primary weather-related cause of death in the United States. Increasing heat and humidity, at least partially related to anthropogenic climate change, suggest that a long-term increase in heat-related mortality could occur. We calculated the annual excess mortality on days when apparent temperatures–an index that combines air temperature and humidity–exceeded a threshold value for 28 major metropolitan areas in the United States from 1964 through 1998. Heat-related mortality rates declined significantly over time in 19 of the 28 cities. For the 28-city average, there were 41.0 +/- 4.8 (mean +/- SE) excess heat-related deaths per year (per standard million) in the 1960s and 1970s, 17.3 +/- 2.7 in the 1980s, and 10.5 +/- 2.0 in the 1990s. In the 1960s and 1970s, almost all study cities exhibited mortality significantly above normal on days with high apparent temperatures. During the 1980s, many cities, particularly those in the typically hot and humid southern United States, experienced no excess mortality. In the 1990s, this effect spread northward across interior cities. This systematic desensitization of the metropolitan populace to high heat and humidity over time can be attributed to a suite of technologic, infrastructural, and biophysical adaptations, including increased availability of air conditioning.

Biden’s political career is over because of the way he has screwed things up since he has been in office, although I doubt he would run again in 2024 anyway. A lot of other Democrats’ careers are over because of the way Biden has screwed things up, too.

We do have the problem of having to wait many months before we can reign Biden in, but other things are popping up that may reign in Biden and the Democrats before that. Democrat Senators Manchin and Sinema are balking at voting for the $3.5 Trillion “human infrastructure” bill, and some Democrats in the House are also balking at voting for these porkbarrel bills, so we will just have to wait and see. Maybe we’ll get lucky and the Democrat plans will just go down in flames.

The U.S. Senate parlimentarian says the Democrats cannot put legalizing millions of illegal aliens into their spending bills. So there’s that.

Joe has been bringing in as many illegal aliens as he can, hoping the majority of them would vote Democrat if given the chance, but they have to be legal first, and that’s not going to happen in these spending bills.

“The best laid plans of mice and men sometimes go awry.” Right, Joe?

No! Yahoo News has ‘temporarily’ suspended comments. Their official statement is:

They don’t explain just how users can connect if no one is allowed to comment. For a short while, they were allowing comments on very important topics such as the fashion preferences of the Kardashians, and related themes. However, Yahoo apparently found even that too threatening.

Rumor has it that Yahoo will again allow comments when “Hell freezes over.”

Atlantic accumulated cyclone energy (ACE) is a driver for a number of climate parameters in the North Atlantic’s wider geographic area. Any long term forecast of the ACE number is a fraught with danger, but the most reliable indicator is the Arctic atmospheric pressure (oddly and surprisingly) of some 15 years earlier.

Why 15 years ? Difficult to say, but there is a clue in the Earth’s lower mantle differential rotation in respect of the solid inner core.

I got this far: Extreme heat is now the leading weather-related killer in the United States, and it is becoming more common and severe. 

Yahoo! News

And then I went back to the NWS forecast for my general area, which is really a rather large piece of my state, and I asked out loud “Where is this extreme heat they speak of?”

Barely 60s daytime, and 40s after sunset do not indicate “extreme heat” of any kind.

My cat got up on my desk, sat on my keyboard and muttered some things in cat language and then hopped onto the floor. She, too, is confused about “extreme heat”, because it’s been cooling here in my AO since the 3rd week in August and the only actual summer heat we’ve had was 10 days in August, then BAM! It got cold all over again.

So can someone please direct me to the destination where “extreme heat” is, because I had to start the furnace up already – earliest ever since I started living here in 2005.

I think you can understand why I’m so puzzled about “extreme heat”, right? Where is it?

The extreme heat exists in the fevered imginations of the alarmists. They all think it is still 2016.

They expect to see extreme heat everywhere and that’s what they see. Not to mention that seeing exteme heat everywhere plays into the Human-caused Climate Change scam.

Human-caused Climate Change Extreme Heat is a figment of alarmists’ imaginations. They think if they keep saying Mother-Nature-generated extreme weather is actually Human-caused extreme weather long enough, that it will be real. It’s only real in their imaginations.

OK, well, griff, I’m quite a LONG distance – several thousand miles, in fact, – away from the Pac Northwest and a localized heat wave means nothing unless I’m in it. It is WEATHER – LOCAL weather, NOTHING ELSE – and has no effect on someone in my area. IN fact, when those fires in the PACNW (look them up yourself) occurred, we got none of that here. Nor was anyone in the AO of the eastern side of the Rocky Mountains worried about HEAT from THOSE fires. You just are NOT paying attention.

So please explain why it got SO cold in Europe that the wine grapes were in danger of freezing in AUGUST. And explain why snow feel in the Austrian Alps? Those are only a few realities.

And since you pay no attention to real things, the heat in Greece and Turkey was related to deliberately set fires that engulfed woodlands and towns, just like the wildfires in California. They were arson-related. The heat of a wildfire is far higher than anything you can possibly imagine.

I am totally disappointed in you.

If any of these warmunistas actually believed in science, and not ideology, then the most obvious observation and data point is:

Humans evolved and emerged as a species in the African savannah. Our bodies have only light hair coverings, no fur, and are obviously specialized for living in warm and hot climates. Even the slightly evolved Eskimos still have to wear humongous furs in order to survive the cold in the Arctic.

The notion that extreme heat causes more human mortality than extreme cold, or even “normad” cold, is not only not supported by any actual data, but is on its face absurd.

Here’s a little experiment:

Go outside on a typical January day in the northern half of the United States, and strip off your clothes, and see how long you survive. Less than an hour, and if it’s a windy day, or you get wet, a lot less than an hour.

Then go outside on a typical July day in the southern half of the United States, strip off all your clothes, and see how long you survive. As long as you are in the shade, no problem at all … just keep hydrated.

See?

1-2 people per million die from heat in the USA. 100-130 per million suicide. Unemployment leads to 2-3 times increase in suicides – of young and healthy people. Deaths rates after an extreme heatwave tend to drop because most victims of a heatwave were on deaths door.

According to the CDC heat-related mortality is higher in persons over 65 along with other categories, generally the relatively poor.
The purpose of so-called renewable energy is to make energy use more expensive it follows that more renewables will cause more heat-related deaths.

I’m pretty sure that cold-related deaths are way higher in absolute terms and proportionally, for the over 65s. To avoid cold you need to move, and the older you get, the less you move (that’s my excuse, anyway).

So, in fact, unreliables will cause many more cold-related deaths than heat-related deaths, although I agree that they will definitely increase heat-related deaths.

Having moved to the tropics as a Climate Change Refugee, my strategy is to always have a cold beverage to hand, preferably beer, and to always have a swimming pool to hand. Outside of winter, I don’t even need to heat the pool, probably because of Global Warming ™ of course.

Rubbish. Elections in the USA are some of the fairest and most transparent in the world. Have a look at the Heritage Foundations’ list of voter fraud at
https://www.heritage.org/voterfraud
they document 1333 cases of fraud out of about 250 million votes cast. There is no way that electoral fraud could be above 10% without a single proven instance of fraud being found.

So what about those canvass reports did you find in error. They have super adequate sample size, collected thousands of affidavits, and had qualified mathematicians do and check the work.Their results align well with Professor Doug Frank’s analysis of the election results. It all looks ok to me. I’ll be watching the Arizona Senate on Friday.

If fraud was so easy to find how come the Department of Justice failed to find any evidence of it despite being asked by Bill Barr to look for it after the recent election? Similarly why has no law enforcement agencies in the US arrested anyone for what must be a massive conspiracy. The claim that over 10% of votes cast were fraudalent is just not believable.

“The claim that over 10% of votes cast were fraudalent is just not believable.”

He says, before the official results come in.

There is no doubt that there were more than enough fraudulent votes cast in the Battleground States to swing the election. The only problem is we don’t know who got those fraudulent votes. Republicans have a pretty good guess at where those fraudulent votes went, but we can’t prove it.

So, what these vote audits will tell us is the voting procedures need to be fixed to eliminate all fraudulent votes. I believe Republicans have awoken from their slumber when it comes to voting and will be paying much more attention to what is going on in the future.

Trump is leading the pack in the polls for who Republicans want to run for president in 2024.

Do you miss Trump yet? I missed him on Day One.

The fraud was out in the open for all to see if they want to. The voting laws pertaining to mail in and absentee ballots in both Pennsylvania and Georgia were illegally changed. Those changes allowed votes to be counted that shouldn’t have been. The entities who made the illegal changes were controlled by Democrats and were also the entities that ruled on the legality of those changes. Of course they claim they didn’t find anything wrong. They certainly weren’t going to overrule themselves.Those two states accounted for 36 electoral votes that went to Biden. If the election had followed the law, Trump would have won both States and the electoral count would have been 270-268 for Biden with Arizona still in limbo. The makeup of the House and Senate would also be different in favor of Republicans.
This same scenario played out in the 2001 election in Florida. The Florida State Supreme Court, controlled by Democrats, illegally changed the voting law pertaining to certification dates. That ruling was overturned by the SCOTUS because the Florida State SC had no authority to make such changes. So there was precedent for the SCOTUS to act in this past election but they chose not to shirking their sworn duties of upholding the Constitution which gives state legislatures exclusive control of Presidential elections in each state.

Priliminary data already shows rampant fraud in Arizona’s elections.

Let’s see if I remember the figures correctly. There were about 15,000 illegal aliens who voted; and about 15,000 dead people voted, and about 15,000 people who no longer lived in their voting districts voted.

Trump only lost Arizona by about 12,000 votes.

We’ll get the final results tomorrow.

G’Day Tom,

“…rampant fraud in Arizona’s elections.”

The 1880 Pima County elections. One polling place was the Clanton ranch. That area had an estimated 15 eligible voters. For the office of County Sheriff, that ballot box had 104 votes, 103 for the democrat and one for the republican.

A court challenge and those votes were thrown out, and the election outcome was reversed. (Cochise County was split off from Pima County not long after.)

Why do you think ‘civilized’, ‘law abiding’, Arizona Territory was denied statehood till 1912?

From the link you provided:

But as the U.S. Supreme Court said in 2008 in Crawford v. Marion County Election Board, “flagrant examples of such fraud … have been documented throughout this Nation’s history by respected historians and journalists … [that] demonstrate that not only is the risk of voter fraud real but that it could affect the outcome of a close election.”

On top of which, Trump got millions more votes the second time he ran than he did the first time.

But Trump got more, not less votes, the second time around. Yet he still lost to stumbling, mumbling Joe Biden. I’m not buying it.

Little to no fraud. That is laughable. The 2020 presidential election couldn’t even pass the sniff test – it was rotten to the core. To believe that Joe Biden could obtain 81.3 million votes is ridiculous at best. This thrice previously failed primary candidate wins the primary out of a field of other losers simply because Clyburn gave him his endorsement before the Georgia primary.

To believe that this joke of a president garnered more votes than Obama’s first run (69.5 million) or his second run (65.9 million) or Clinton’s run against Trump (where she got 60.1 million) and Biden got 81.28 million, you have to believe in the easter bunny. This person who sequestered himself almost every day by 9 or 10 a.m. and wouldn’t take questions if they weren’t from hand picked reporters.

If it was so honest, why are the democrats so against any discussions by the media about the MASSIVE irregularities of that election? Why have they tried at every level to stop any audits in Arizona, Nevada, Pennsylvania, Georgia and Michigan? We were tortured for 4 years of President Trump with allegations of voter fraud because he defeated Clinton and the dems couldn’t believe it. And no Russian influence was found. But no, this one was a completely fair election AND don’t you every speak of fraud. Ignore the videos of people shutting down polling places and kicking out auditors then pulling out cases of votes from back rooms, under tables and unloading them from trucks. The hundreds of sworn affidavits to voting irregularities. The millions of ballots that had only one office checked, the president, no down ticket voting. The evidence produced in the Arizona audit that showed that numerous ballots were run through copy machines as they had identical marks on them. In one instance where they obtained (after court order) one of the voting machines used, they ran identical numbers of Trump Biden ballots through and each time they were run the results came back as Biden winning 70% to 30%.

In an audit of one precinct, they looked at the vote tally hour by hour and when the auditors were kicked out, when they returned the vote tallies for Trump and Biden had been reversed. Prior to the shut down Trump was ahead with like 10,000 votes to Biden’s 4,000 votes but after the shutdown and reopening of the precinct those numbers were reversed. Maybe you don’t understand our voting system but you can’t get negative votes.

Pulleeze, no voting fraud.

Excellent summary. Among other “irregularities,” numerous poll workers submitted affidavits regarding apparently counterfeit ballots that weren’t on the same paper stock and weren’t machine folded in half then in thirds like the official ballots. Additionally, they were identically marked with no indentation or variation you’d expect from manually filled in ballots. You also have ad hoc canvassing done by third parties investigating multiple ballots (sometimes hundreds of them) allegedly mailed from the same address where no such people lived. You had Big Tech scumbags like Zuckerberg, Dorsey, et al. use “fact checkers” to censor truth tellers and validate liars. Just like in the Soviet Union, Cuba, Venezuela and Communist China.

Leftist Democrats typically repeat the same talking points using the same phraseology, always in service to the Big Lie techniques described in 1984. Of course Orwell intended his writings as a warning. But for the Left, they’re a playbook.

Izzy, you obviously have no interest in studying the subject of the 2020 election.
You heard the claims of “fairest election ever” and that was good enough for you.
I suppose predictions of a coming climate crisis are good enough (non) science for you too?

There were a large number of unprecedented results that STRONGLY suggest massive fraud in the 2020 Election, in addition to many hundreds of affidavits by poll watchers.

The two studies that had the most unprecedented results in US polling history:

— The Bellwether County Study:
Trump won 18 of the 19 counties with an excellent 40 year record of favoring the winning presidential candidate, of either party, yet lost the election (while other Republicans did well in House elections), and

— Census Bureau Post-Election Voter Survey:
Typically the survey finds that some people who did not vote will lie and tell pollsters that they did vote, in this anonymous survey.

After prior elections, the Survey found up to 9 million more votes claimed than were actually cast in the election.

For 2020 we had an unprecedented result of the Survey:
4 million MORE votes cast than were claimed in the Survey !

Did people who voted in 2020 suddenly decide to lie to the Census ,and claim they did not vote, the opposite of their lying pattern in all prior years?

Or were there a lot of actual ballots in 2020 that were not coming from registered legal voters who were the subject of the Survey?

Perhaps some ballots came from printing machines on unfolded paper, with circles on the ballot filled in absolutely perfectly … that showed up after midnight on Election Day in Detroit, Atlanta and a few other Democrat-controlled cities in two other battleground states … with the after midnight ballots almost entirely for Biden … changing the lead from Trump to Biden in those key states.

Some of the after midnight ballot dumps are on video … happening after poll watchers were thrown out of the ballot tabulating buildings or sent home. How convenient !

Nothing to see here Izzy?

Having massive fraud does not mean it will ever be uncovered. But you can’t find fraud unless you look for it. And your fellow Dumbocrats have done everything they can to avoid real forensic audits of the ballots. Until Arizona. So what do they have to hide if the election was really so honest? They certainly are acting like guilty people trying to keep a secret.

Heritage list convictions.
To have a conviction there has to be an investigation followed by a trial.
If a DA refuses to even investigate, let alone prosecute …
PS I saw a video from a surveillance camera in, I think it was Fulton County Georgia during the vote count.
It showed one of the counters in the upper right putting the same stack of ballots through the counter 4 times. Then the camera shifted a bit to the right and another counter came into view and noticed. She looked to her right and a guy walked into view, staring at the camera. He stopped and stood at a spot where he shielded the original counter (recounter) from it’s view.
No investigation, therefore no convictions, therefore it’s not on the Heritage list.

Yes, the Early Twentieth Century Warming pops up everywhere we look.

The alarmists try to erase this warming period because it destroys their Human-caused Climate Change meme, but there are just too many records and they can’t get to them all, although they are giving it the ole college try.

But they can’t erase it. The data is everywhere, look at Cliff Mass’ last post highlighting the 1930’s, so their next best choice is to pretend it doesn’t exist and hope that carries the narrative through.

The alarmists want us to ignore all the actual data and only pay attention to a computer-generated bogus, “hotter and hotter” temperature profile which claims today is the hottest time in human history. But the actual data puts the lie to this claim.

Next, the alarmists will claim this “Dust Bowl” period was only happening in the United States, but the actual data shows similiar warming all over the world in the Early Twentieth Century. It wasn’t just limited to one specific place.

So go with the data? Or with computer-generated science fiction? I’m going with the data.

That would be the data that says it was just as warm in the recent past as it is today, which means we are not experiencing unprecedented warmth today, as the alarmists claim, and since it is no warmer today than in the recent past, but there is more CO2 in the air today than in the recent past, then one must conclude that CO2 has had very little effect on the temperatures. Lots more CO2 in the air today, but it’s no warmer than in the past when the CO2 concentration was much lower.

That train of thought is why the alarmists don’t want people knowing that it was just as warm in the past as it is today. If that’s the case, and it is, then the Human-caused Climate Change scam is exposed for what it is: A huge scientific fraud on the people of the world.

From a military perspective, Australia switching over to nuclear-powered submarines is the best move.

I think the way this deal was handled was detrimental to all parties. This looks like the kind of fiasco Biden would initiate, but at the least, the UK and Austrailia went along with it, and in doing so alienated the French.

They could have figured out a way to keep the French happy, if they had tried. I think it would be worth the effort to keep the French in our corner. They can be a valuable ally. But slapping them in the face is not the way to get them onboard.

The reality is that, based on the paleoclimate record and the work done with models, the climate change we are experiencing today is caused by the sun and the oceans over which mankind has no control. Despite the hype, there is no real evidence that CO2 has any effect on climate and there is plenty of scientific rationale to support tie conclusion that the climate sensitivity of CO2 is zero. Hence all efforts to reduce CO2 emissions will have no effect on climate. Personally what Biden should do is place himself in total climate lockdown in the basement of his home in Delaware. It will have no effect on global climate but politically it is what Biden should do.

No doubt, world leaders are looking at Biden aghast, and wondering how such an unqualified person could be running the United States.

The leaders of the enemies of the United States are not looking aghast at Biden, they are smiling from ear to ear. They’re feeling their oats now.

It’s not good when murderous dictators feel they are on a roll. They almost always overstep their bounds when unrestrained.

Now, one of the few restraints they have had in the past, the United States, is being led by an appeaser of dictators. So we have a double-whammy in the United States: We have a man leading us who is a natural appeaser in his own mind, and he is compromised financially by the world’s dictators, so he is incapable of reigning in the ambtions of these dictators, on two fronts.

The world got a lot more dangerous when Joe Biden took office. Simply because Joe Biden is out of his league in the job he holds, and because he is compromised by the financial deals the Biden Crime Family has made with our enemies in the past.

Joe Biden is the worst president ever and he’s only been in office nine months.

A climate summit of world leaders in 40 days’ time will be the “turning point for humanity”, PM Boris Johnson has said in a speech to the United Nations.
He warned that global temperature rises were already inevitable, but called on his fellow leaders to commit to major changes to curb further warming.
Four areas needed tackling – “coal, cars, cash and trees”, he said.
Countries must take responsibility for “the destruction we are inflicting, not just upon our planet but ourselves”.
“It’s time for humanity to grow up,” he added ahead of the UK hosting the COP26 summit in Glasgow.

BTW, there are 10’s of thousands of cities in the US. Most of those cities have temperature records going back only a hundred years or so. So the fact that a few of those cities broke records this summer is once again, not unusual in the slightest.

I seem to recall griff screaming and yelling about how the record cold in Texas and other states this past winter was just weather. On the other hand, every heat wave is proof of global warming.

“(5 other heatwaves in USA this summer”

There was the heatwave in the northwest that can legitimately be called a heatwave. It was a fluke of nature, where many variables have to come together at the same time. It doesn’t happen very often, and there is no connection with CO2.

Then there was your normal heatwave in Arizona earlier in the year. That lasted a couple fo days and then it’s gone and the rain moved in.

That’s two heatwaves. Where are the other four heatwaves you are referring to? I asked you this before when you made the same claim but you failed to reply. I wonder why.

So what caused these heatwaves, griff?
CO2 maybe?
If so, please give links to proof.

No, didn’t think you could.

Ever heard of “TheWayBackMachine”?
Ever heard of the 1930’s?
PS How many cold springs in the USA this year?
The 17 year cicadas emergence was a few weeks later than projected where I live. They depend on ground temperature. Ground temperature here didn’t rise enough until later than usual.

Question: “ Where is the mental health test for Joe Biden – the same test that Mr Trump was required to undergo”

Where where where. C.mon, don’t be shy, speak up. Where?

I’ll tell ya, spoil your fun.
Mr Biden is not having his cognitive skills checked out because he is regarded by The Vast Majority as = Normal

Mr Trump faced the indignity because he was = Different

Okaaaaaay, but how? Why?
What made Mr Trump soooo different. Why did he (patently) frighten people to such an extent they ‘wanted rid’

I’ve told you all here plenty times. I’ve told you ‘Do your own research, do some science, run and experiment, record the results and then, maybe, document them.

The Experiment:
Take yourself on a Low-carb diet & perfectly free of alcohol. For at least 12 months.

It is a very subtle experiment, the results sneak up on you without your realising until, classically, a long-lost friend meets you.
And their very first words to you, exclaimed from across the parking-lot or wherever and in absolute certainty/clarity will be:
“My, don’t you look well. How you keeping. You look 10 years younger than when I last saw you – what gives

It is then that you realise you are living in a Land Of Zombies – mentally as well as physically.
It is then that the penny drops – about everything

It is then that you ‘learn to dance‘ and even more so, go out and do it
Can anyone picture Joe Biden ‘dancing’

Trump told everyone the unvarnished truth. The Left can’t handle the truth being told because it makes them look bad, so they attack anyone and everyone who tells the truth about them. Trump just told the truth about them a little better than most, and he was president, so he was target number one for the Left. And he still is target number one. He’ll probably be running for president again in 2024, and no doubt will be speaking a lot more truth about the Left as he does so.

I think Trump’s next political rally is next month. Last month, at his last political rally, he had a crowd of about 50,000 attending. In the rain.

I just heard a little while ago that Trump’s rally will be tomorrow (Saturday) in Georgia. I know Newsmax tv will carry the rally, and if you don’t get Newsmax tv, you can get the free app and stream it from there.

I imagine Trump will have something to say about the Arizona vote audit.

Just for fun, lets evaluate step 1 combined for a statistically/physically significant time period w.r.t. AGW. I.e., the post aerosol era, post 1980 period, when the real impact of [CO2] and [CH4] forcings were in play.

Increase – ~ 0.60%/year
Standard error of that increase – ~ 0.23%/year

Chance of the trend in fact being flat or down – 1 in 233.

Certainly lots of spray in the data, but these are the relevant parameters. And just to remind you, it’s not statistically defensible to diss the data by showing us it’s meaningless R^2. This has already been (validly) debunked here, by both other commenters and other posters. The proof is available statistically, but all you need to do is to detrend this data to see how the parameter then changes. If it was a useful parameter, it wouldn’t. OTOH, the standard error of the trend – the trend itself being set to zero with detrending – remains constant…..

Thanks for the entree, Mr. M. This is both fun and easy:

Post 1980 min temp extremes index trend (Step 2 Combined)

Increase – ~ 0.99%/year
Standard error of that increase – ~ 0.28%/year
Chance of the trend in fact being flat or down – 1 in 5355.

Post 1980 PDSI (Palmer Drought Severity Index) trend (Step 3 Combined)

Increase – ~ 0.18%/year
Standard error of that increase – ~ 0.11%/year
Chance of the trend in fact being flat or down – 1 in 22.

Post 1980 extremes in 1 day precipitation

Increase – ~ 0.13%/year
Standard error of that increase – ~ 0.05%/year
Chance of the trend in fact being flat or down – 1 in 208.

Post 1980 extremes in wet days

Increase – ~ 0.19%/year
Standard error of that increase – ~ 0.11%/year
Chance of the trend in fact being flat or down – 1 in 29.

Yes, other parameters are up, but less so, and with more relative standard error.

Globally, data is less good. And to be fair, the CONUS has the most variable weather in the world. But that is why the IPCC is pledging to improve global extreme weather data gathering and reporting over the next 5 years…..

I think those White House reporters are starting to get a little upset with the way the Biden administration is treating them. They have been asking a few pointed questions lately. We probably shouldn’t expect them to come down too hard on Biden, though. It’s just a lover’s spat.

I have a window unit AC for 5 years now. This year I purchased a portable AC unit which uses an eight inch exhaust line fixed to a window or outlet to pump warm air outside. It also has a dehumidifier capability. The cooling ability is immediate from this unit. It is superior to my window unit. It cost almost 300 bucks, but it was well worth it.

Have you ever noticed how when we declare a “War on…” whatever, the whatever NEVER goes away?

It’s because we end up creating entire bureaucracies devoted to the issue, and the nature of a bureaucracies is to perpetuate itself. There’s no actual incentive to FIX the problem.

It took me a very long time to realize this but now it is obvious. The entire global warming nonsense is actually a very protracted comedy skit with no end. My ribs hurt bad from rolling on the floor laughing. Biden may be the icing on the cake. No one could write this, he’s such a natural at comedy whether he’s semi-conscious or just doing his zombie impersonation.

‘Mortality risk attributable to high and low ambient temperature: a multicountry observational study’ https://www.thelancet.com/journals/lancet/article/PIIS0140-6736(14)62114-0/fulltext#supplementaryMaterial
The study of temperature-related deaths published in The Lancet found that 7.29% of the total deaths are because of the cold, that’s about 4.4 million deaths per year of the 60 million world deaths per year. The heat caused 0.42 percent of the total deaths that’s about 250,000 deaths. In the US about 200,000 deaths are caused by the cold compared to about 13,000 caused by the heat.
