Will Biden and the U.N. Declare a ‘Climate Emergency’? Looks like it.

I’ve covered this topic before: ClimateTV: UN Plans ‘Climate Power Grab’ Over U.S. The Heartland Institute’s Justin Haskins wrote a stunning op-ed in The Federalist, revealing the behind the scenes planning:  The U.N. Is Planning To Seize Global ‘Emergency’ Powers With Biden’s Support.

Yesterday, there was this story: Biden says he has ‘practically’ declared a climate emergency. With this note from Bloomberg.com “President Joe Biden said he had basically declared a national climate emergency, stopping short of demands by progressive lawmakers and activists for a formal declaration.”

And, the UN now has a “climate emergency” page here.

Based on the chatter and data I see, it looks like the formal declaration of a “Climate Emergency” will come around Tuesday August 15. On that day, it is likely that NOAA will release new figures from GHCN and other temperature datasets, and these new record high numbers will be used as justification for the declaration. And then, all hell breaks loose.

What follows is a reformatted, grammar/spell corrected, and paraphrased email from WUWT reader Frits Buningh, who has been looking at news reports and data. I provide it for your interpretation without comment. – Anthony

Either the UN Secretary General will do it and/or Joe Biden. It is likely that on Thursday August 10th, the Global Sea Surface Temperature (SST) will be declared to have broken the all-time record and will come in at 21.1 C, more than at any other time since record keeping began as of 1850 and the Climate Hysteria will reach a fever pitch. As you can see below, it is already on its way.

What follows is some of what I found and some general observations and context about Antarctica Melting.

Reuters, AP, Forbes, the Weather Channel. USA Today and of course the New York Times are screaming ANTARCTICA is melting faster than ever, and it is concerning! Why all of a sudden, now?

It is kind of a low hanging fruit, hardly anyone can go there, no normal human being has been there, so they (The Reporters that is, based on the “Scientists” Studies) can tell you whatever they want, no personal experience can contradict the “SCIENCE”.

AP says this:

“Even in Antarctica — one of the most remote and desolate places on Earth — scientists say they are finding shattered temperature records and an increase in the size and number of wacky weather events.”

The Greater, Broader, Detail, way down below: The weather on the ground and the forecast for Antarctica (There are 16 Weather stations down there to validate what you are claiming, AP has access to them too, the same as everyone else writing about this)

Today’s Weather on Antarctica, kind of like Phoenix in Reverse (Minus -90 at the South Pole Today Feels Like -127F – See the South Pole Listing):

The South Pole is never the Coldest, that honor goes to Vostok usually, but still COLD enough:

The “Really Hot” facetious comment is all relative of course. 19.3F being -7 Celsius, below freezing.

My sources say this:

These sources say it is BITTER Cold right now, where AP says …………………………………..:??:

Back to the Data on the Ground in Antarctica from Today and In History.

Bottom Lining it for All the 16 Weather Stations on Antarctica:

In 2018 the Avg Temperature on July 28 th was: 6.9 Fahrenheit (No Melting that day)

In 2023 the Avg Temperature on July 28 th was: Minus – 4.7 Fahrenheit (No Melting that day either)

(For reference Minus -4.7 C is Minus -20 Celsius. ICE melts at ZERO Celsius and 32 F)

Forecast for August 10th, Tomorrow: Minus -5.9 F, that is Colder than July 28th (Still no Melting in sight!)

(For Reference, it is still getting Colder in Antarctica, no Spring yet. But the good news is the Global Sea Surface Temperature is still going up, regardless of what happens in Antarctica, it does not Count, for that whole Region is below the 60 th South Parallel! The Climate Re-Analyzing People at the University of Maine’s Climate Crisis Institute only counts whatever is between 60 North and 60 South Parallel. Is that not convenient to help keep the Average SST Higher. The Sea is rather Cold around Antarctica. Some ARGO buoys come in at Minus – 1.791 Celsius in the South Pacific and Southern Atlantic. This reading is from July 21, 2023

ARGO Float 6903231 – Argo Fleet Monitoring (euro-argo.eu)

Here is that buoy:

The Data below is from all the 16 Weather Stations in Antarctica:

See a Trend Maybe?

Another perspective from the Southern Hemisphere where it is Winter right now: “Widespread and persistent cold weather across most of the country, including some near-record low daily maximum temperatures. Most of the weather we have experienced in Australia so far this winter has been so wet and cold, it has actually defied the winter weather outlook issued by the Bureau of Meteorology”
July 19, 2023 from The Wet and Cold Australian Winter Seems to be Defying the Recent El Nino Alert and is in Stark Contrast to the Official Winter Weather Outlook (severe-weather.eu)

In my opinion, the climate screaming will intensify dramatically as of tomorrow and will reach a fever pitch. The Global SST will likely break the record of 21.05 C and will clock in at 21.06 C (or higher) as of tomorrow. (under the Hood the record is 21.05, and today the Global SST clocked in at 21.03 C, so they (NOAA that is) need 0.03 to break the record).

So, tomorrow’s SST Chart will likely read 21.1C (they get to round it off) – A New World Record! 

It is Late in the 4th Quarter and there is not a lot of time left in the Summer. In order to declare “The Climate Emergency”, which the Secretary General Antonio Gutierrez has been calling for since June 15th and many here in Australia too, there needs to be significant Public Buy-In. This New Record will Help!

August 15th is kind of the end of the summer heat buildup, so it is now or never, at least for this year.

That is what all the Climate articles about Antarctica are all about. The Global Ocean is getting warmer because the Antarctic is Melting and it is Hot up here in the Northern Hemisphere and it is Warmer than Usual in the Southern Hemisphere (at least that is what AP, Reuters, USA Today and the NYT are communicating with their Antarctica Climate Scare articles), so there you go.

Except it is VERY Cold in the Antarctic, but few people really know that, and nobody will be telling anyone that, not CNN’s Jake Tapper for sure.

Just about every level of government in England has declared a climate emergency. All the technocracy – from academia to the civil service etc – is ramping up the fear and alarm factor by the day. And the irony of that is lost on them….

“Picture the scene. You’re in London, the sky is menacingly grey, it’s drizzling. You zip your jacket against the elements, annoyed that Britain has just had one of its wettest Julys since records began. Then you reach for your copy of the Evening Standard as you head home from work, only to see splashed across the front page a Photoshopped image of the Earth on fire. ‘WHO WILL STOP EARTH BURNING?’, the hysterical headline asks. The drizzle turns to rain and you fold your Standard in two to use as an impromptu umbrella, turning a mad piece of global-boiling propaganda into flimsy protection from this strange, wet summer.”

Forget global boiling, the crazy term invented by UN chief António Guterres a couple of weeks ago. Forget global warming, even. It’s global gaslighting we should be worried about. If gaslighting, in the words of the Oxford dictionary, is ‘the process of making somebody believe untrue things in order to control them’, then that lunatic Standard cover was classic gaslighting. The planet is not on fire. Earth is not burning. These are untruths. This is delirium, not journalism; fearmongering, not fact-gathering. And the aim, it seems to me, is to try to control us; to frighten us with pseudo-Biblical prophesies of hellfire and doom until we obediently bow down to the eco-ideology.”

Global warming isn’t global. It’s local, regional, hemispheric at most. How else could you have record cold at the same time in another location?  

Justin Rowlatt

The average world temperature hit 16.89C on Monday 3 July and topped 17C for the first time on 4 July, with an average global temperature of 17.04C.

These highs are in line with what climate models predicted, says Prof Richard Betts, climate scientist at the Met Office and University of Exeter. “We should not be at all surprised with the high global temperatures,” he says. “This is all a stark reminder of what we’ve known for a long time”

Only not in England. And to my knowledge their models are way off beam and always have been.

Gaslighting abounds.

True. How many liquid forms of a compound when chilled enough to start to become solid will float on it’s liquid form?
It’s been called The Universal Solvent because it will dissolve a bit of just about everything it comes in contact with.
I have an old edition of “Standard Methods for the Examination of Water and Wastewater” buried in a box in my basement. On the front and back inside cover was a list of different ways to prepare water for use in a lab.
I remember that to prepare “Reagent Grade” water (for labs that mixed their own reagents), you started with distilled water then distilled it again using borosilicate glassware. All to ensure the reagent wasn’t contaminated. (I don’t remember if there were additional steps.)
There were also steps to produce CO2-free water but I don’t remember them.

Ice extent is at a record low because strong winds are pushing it polewards. As a result, the ice is thicker than normal.

Even with most of South Africa a summer rainfall area the dams are averaging 94%.

Nice – or no, “bad”, holy “boiling” mackerel and polar bears, perhaps a simply doh is enough.

After have read the UN´s new page: “Facts about the climate emergency” and UNEPs “Emissions Gap Report 2020”, the two most striking sentences are the following, 1) a green covid 19 recovery and 2) a low carbon pandemic recovery. The frases used doesn´t come as a big surprise, taken that in concideration that Climate-Lockdowns as a term became a big topic in the litterature in 2020.

Based on yours and many others studies on Weather-Stations and man made hot spots, it is quite clear, that the term “global Boiling” will set the new “normals” standards, even though it is well known that temperature measurments is tampered and can be compared to the pandemic pcr-test. Trust the science so a speak.

I have an idea, intelligens so as neurology with in the area of problem-solving which have evovled increasingly since the early 1970s is a beautiful thing to study. My idea is this and it´s based on the fact that our intution and sarcasm is the two most imortant intelligences we have, the intuiton can best of all be described as a (0)1 algoritm (notation) because the constant time always equals the presents second in which our thougths derives from.

Now that we have entered the era of “Global Boiling” why not set up a meeting in an ice Hotel, use the “beauty” of sarcasm – and make a video message to the world, about why weather measurments actually isn´t “95%” safe and effective because many of the measurments comes from class 3,4 and 5 weatherstations with human made hotspots. Invite John Clauser, members of Clintel and the Heartland Institute to present the topic and an expert in the PCR-Test would propably also be nice just to top the cake, we could call it, the first digital revolution/reset – with a flashback to the first global revolution from 1991, written by the Club of Rome, where the idea GW before it with the paper of Ben Santer in 1995 became AGW, was stated as following at page 108 and page 115: “The need for enemies seems to be a common historical factor. States have striven to overcome domestic failure and internal contradictions by designating external enemies. The scapegoat practice is as old as mankind itself. When things become too difficult at home, divert attention by adventure abroad. Bring the divided nation together to face an outside enemy, either a real one or else one invented for the purpose” … “The Common Enemy of Humanity Is Man. In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came ​up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global ​warming, water shortages, famine and the like would ​fit the bill. In their totality and in their interactions ​these phenomena do constitute a common threat ​which demands the solidarity of all peoples.

Just an Idea, here at 13:00 o´clock with a temperature of 15 degrees and cloudy here in Denmark.

Just as with the atmosphere, water has a window of high transmission near the peak of the output (green) of the sun. Both IR and UV are absorbed strongly at or near the surface. The visible wavelengths penetrate, with the red disappearing first. Thus, the bulk of the water above the thermocline is warmed by visible wavelengths.

Temperature is maintained by a balance of energy in vs energy out.
Short wave radiation warms the water by pumping in energy.
As the water warms, it is easier for it to transfer energy into the atmosphere and thus lose heat.
Unless the air has warmed, in which case the temperature of the water has to increase even more in order to maintain the same temperature difference.

Reply to  MarkW
August 10, 2023 5:58 pm

Just as IR cannot penetrate into water more than about 10 microns, it cannot radiate out of water below that depth. Sunlight absorbed below that depth heats the water, which must be brought to the surface to radiate away.

In the tropics the upper layer of the ocean, where the most solar energy is absorbed by day, loses heat to the atmosphere at night, then sinks as it cools, being displaced by warmer water raising from below it. This continues all night under average conditions. As most solar energy is absorbed in the upper 10 meters, so that 10 meters mostly loses each night what it absorbed by day.

Clear enough ocean water receives, and partly absorbs sunlight down to about 100 meters. The shortest wavelength (UV) penetrate furthest. Those deeper depths do not participate much in the nightly overturning, so accumulate heat. Some of this heat is brought to the surface, where it can be evaporated to the atmosphere, by the meridional overturning circulation, some of it is driven to greater depths by the increased salinity that results from the water that evaporates. That later heat can remain in the deep currents for much longer periods, potentially more than a thousand years.

Just to mention that a high of 34f doesn’t actually mean the snow and ice will melt on the ground or the very least for a short time. It depends on the weather conditions, amount of daylight and the strength of the sun for that location. The high may also only occur for a short duration of day where it could be below freezing point for most of it.

My main point was the ground temperature can remain below freezing despite the air temperature at 1.5m/2m reading a high of 34f. The increased energy needed to change a solid to liquid, the lack of rain, and the thickness of the piles can mean snow not melting.

The Soviet Union and its Eastern European satellites proved that mass popular cynicism is the citizens’ response to continued arbitrary authoritarianism and official lies. Important national things stop working over time and under those conditions standards of living go to hell.

Americans’ current mistrust of governmental institutions is just the tip of the iceberg. Official governmental encouragement of racial, ethnic, political and sociological strife is making things much worse. We’ll see over the next few election cycles where U.S. popular opinion goes and if we can stave off this ultimately deflationary current trend; China is in the middle of one now.

I think this is the heart of the matter. The radical Left stirs up strife as a means to a political end. It doesn’t matter to them that their actions are destroying our society. And of course, some of them *want* to destroy our society.

This pretty well sums up our climate emergency at present-

and it won’t be easily fixed until the electorate grows a brain and stops taking reliable energy and its productivity for granted.

Seems to me that this is just more of that relentless determination to get their hands on their ask for 1% of the global GDP as a forever tax to be employed by the climate grifter class.

And of course they ought to be totally trusted, no questions, please. 😡

Personal actions by the ones promoting the fear speak far louder than words. This is the biggest scam in world history and nearly 50 years of failed predictions just means the hypothesis has failed.

If somebody said walking on that beach will kill you, but you see the fear mongers walking there will you believe them?

When Will Biden and his activist friends actually reduce using fossil fuel products rather than increasing their use?

There is no personnel behaviour towards this scam that shows any action is required.

From the above article:
“Either the UN Secretary General will do it and/or Joe Biden . . .the Global Sea Surface Temperature (SST) will be declared to have broken the all-time record and will come in at 21.1 C, more than at any other time since record keeping began as of 1850.”

“all-time record”, huh? Let’s put such in its proper perspective. The 173 years since 1850 amounts to:
— the most recent 1.4% of the time since Earth entered the current interglacial period, called the Holocene (~12 kya)
— the most recent 0.1% of the time since Earth ended its prior interglacial period, called the Eemian (~120 kya)
— the most recent 0.05–0.07% of the time since homo sapiens first appeared on Earth (~350–260 kya, scientific estimates vary)
— the most recent 0.007% of the time since Earth entered its current ice age, known as the Quaternary (~2,600 kya)

But, yeah, right, let’s focus on only the time since humans began keep records of climate because, you know, that’s the only thing that REALLY MATTERS . . .

more than at any other time since record keeping began as of 1850.”. I put that in there, more as a Sarcastic statement. It is what the Climate Hysteria People will claim. Read the Guardian or CNN or WAPO going on and on about Climate Change and you will repeatedly see that statement. Who falls for that stuff?.

Seems like a “Objection! Assumes facts not in evidence” that the oceans are warmest since 1850. Review – Challenger Expedition – of 1872–76 
On her 68,890-nautical-mile (127,580 km) journey circumnavigating the globe,[1] 492 deep sea soundings, 133 bottom dredges, 151 open water trawls and 263 serial water temperature observations were taken. Also about 4,700 new species of marine life were discovered.

Here is the route

Note, no reading in the Artic Ocean, north Atlantic or Pacific, southern Indian Ocean and only one at the tip of South America.

Note also, the Niño 3.4 Region got one pass, N-S. Not mentioned was if it was El Nino or La Nina year, since it hadn’t been identified yet.

But good enough to record the whole ocean temperature to hundredths of a degree. And Backdated 26 years for a 1850 starting point.

nothing to do with the weather – just all politics and a continuation of what the former head of the UNIPCC stated – the environmental movement is more about the destruction of capitalism than the climate – all you need to know about what is happening

August 10, 2023 7:47 am

In politics—as in acting, marketing and pulling-the-con—timing is everything.

Biden is sure to seize this particular moment where paradise itself (aka Hawaii) is on fire to assert it is the direct result of the current global climate “catastrophe”—in his words, the greatest existential threat to mankind—to support his declaration of a “climate emergency”.

Grab your wallets!

This could be worth keeping an eye on.

All the protestations of “what about the data?” “ what about the historical record” “what about the science”…..will be like , well , choose a metaphor to demonstrate uselessness…..

No ….

If they do this, what will it mean for thee and me…..?

How about for starters….

air travel banned for all but essential purposes? (Essentially this was trialled during Covid)

Mandatory 50mph speed limits (I recall when that was public policy in the UK during the ‘70s)

Max\Min limits imposed to all public HVAC systems (already the case in Spain)

Mandatory 50mph speed limits …

When the cars are designed with the expectation of being driven at highway speeds, the engine HP curve, transmission gearing, and differential ratios are optimized for that speed. Driving them slower results in poorer gas mileage. The primary result of driving slower is to discourage taking long trips, such as vacations/holidays several days drive away.

I will just observe that most drivers of ICE cars aren’t all that concerned about the mpg difference from driving at, say, 70 mph versus 50 mph . . . but the same thing CANNOT be said about the range anxiety that drivers of EVs have over this speed difference!

My recollection is that Presidents were given the authority to act in matters that normally would be for Congress to deliberate and decide because that specific issue was so immediate (natural disaster, pandemic, riots etc.) and Congress would not have sufficient time to assemble and perform their role.

How did a problem, that is at least 50 years in the future according to Biden’s own experts justify bypassing Congress’ responsibility?

(Of course by the US government’s own agency rules, they have not legally established that increased CO2 will result in a catastrophe or even negative benefits.)

“justify bypassing Congress’ responsibility?”

Congress has ceded its authority to the executive branch in general via the administrative state, why should this be any different?

I had a question about the weather report for Vostok. It says that the weather was “sunny” and -100 F (-73.3 C) at noon on August 8. Does the sun actually rise over the horizon there on August 8? And why would the temperature “warm up” to -81 F by 4 PM on a clear night?

I’m not going to investigate Vostok but katabatic winds are common in many parts of East Antarctica because the interior is high altitude. The adiabatic process of compressing the atmosphere at lower altitudes raises it temperature.

These “climate emergencies” are nothing more than excuses for all government levels to impose new taxes, regulations, laws, and restrictions on citizens with the main aim of generating more revenue that will get squandered on everything except climate action. So it’s up to citizens to protest vigorously against such measures by contacting their government representatives and letting them know their future voting intentions.

Climate lockdowns? How about NO. I refuse to comply.
