A pause in global warming? Studies
try to better explain what´s happened

Christian Science Monitor, by Pete Spotts

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 7/23/2014 2:37:59 PM

Any pause in global warming, such as it may have been during the first decade of the 21st century, might seem to be on its way out. Global average temperatures for May and June 2014 reached record levels of warmth. Last year ranked as somewhere between the second and sixth warmest on record globally, depending on the temperature records you pick. But if history is any guide, expect more pauses in the thermometer´s climb toward a warmer world, thanks to the climate´s natural variability. That´s one implication of two recent studies exploring the pause with an eye toward testing the

The more obvious the evidence against AGW, the more convoluted their excuses for why it´s true. These people are shameless.

A person would be well served to read this one. Gather up a pencil and paper to note all the fallacies and slanted arguments. They are literally all over this piece.

It sounds good if you drift along and listen to the words uncritically and be hypnotized by the droning voice in the background.

It´s actually funny in a way how the people who are the biggest cheerleaders for global warming don´t read articles like this to identify the baseless arguments. Instead they watch the evening news where the news readers take an article like this and slant it even more to the position of catastrophe in five years if we don´t throw more money at the problem.... Pitiful to the Max...

Blah, blah, blah. If you´re explaining, you´re losing.

Riddle me this BatBrains: If the "pause" (actually a cooling) is the result of "natural variability" why is the slight warming in the 90´s not the result of the very same natural variability?

This is getting humorous: the "culprit" is natural variations. Criminal aspersions against nature, because it got in the way of their theory.

The last sentence says that "Logic would dictate that it (heat, warming?) is going into the deeper ocean". Only to come back out later.
How is this neat trick is accomplished?

Notice that the whole article is speculation. The "missing heat" is supposed to have traveled to the deep ocean without having warmed the upper ocean. That, per physics, is really unlikely. Note also the assumption that the heat exists in the first place, although it cannot be measured or even found.

More garbage from desperate people.

And of course it is worthwhile to continue to study climate, with REAL science, not cause driven science.

Part of rising temperatures, is supposed to be from ´feedback´. Increased CO2 causes increased water vapor (humidity). Increased humidity also increases temperatures.

No one has come forward with any records of humidity, at all.

Large Majority of Americans
Lack Confidence in Obama
Mission to Destroy ISIS, Poll Shows
NBC News, by Mark Murray    Original Article
Posted By: NorthernDog- 9/14/2014 10:39:11 AM     Post Reply
Nearly 70 percent of Americans say they lack confidence that the U.S. will achieve its goals in fighting the terrorist group ISIS, according to a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Annenberg poll. The findings come in the wake of President Barack Obama’s national address announcing new measures to combat the Sunni militants. Pressure is mounting on the U.S. and its allies to cripple the militants, who have waged a brutal campaign across Syria and Iraq. ISIS already has beheaded two American journalists and on Saturday released a video showing the execution of a third Westerner, British aid worker David Haines. The

Costco execs turn tables

When it comes to politics, Costco Wholesale has a well-deserved reputation as a Democratic-leaning corporation. Company co-founders Jim Sinegal and Jeffrey Brotman have hosted President Obama at fundraisers in their lakefront mansions. Costco executives have donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to Democratic candidates and causes over the past decade. But in the key battle for control of the state Senate this year, top Costco brass — miffed at Democrats over a liquor-fee dispute — have essentially switched sides, backing the Republican Party’s efforts to maintain and expand its majority coalition. Employees and executives of the Issaquah-based retailer have donated

Military source: ISIS hostages dispersed

After the administration released details of the July mission to rescue journalist James Foley and others in Syria, intelligence suggests ISIS dispersed the remaining hostages to multiple locations, making them harder to locate, a military source told Fox News. In addition, the source added guard forces around the hostages doubled while widely publicized reporting about the scope of new aerial surveillance in the region caused ISIS to change its pattern of behavior on the ground. "Any time you (disclose) very highly sensitive tactical information, you´re giving away your road map if you will, your strategy," said Rep. Michael McCaul, R-Texas,

Republican David Perdue leads Democrat Michelle Nunn in a new independent survey of the Georgia Senate race, the second this week to give him the edge. Perdue takes 45 percent to Nunn’s 41 percent, while libertarian Amanda Swafford takes 6 percent support and another 6 percent remain undecided in the new poll of likely voters, conducted for The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Another poll out this week, from SurveyUSA, gave Perdue a 3-point lead. Most polling has shown the race tight, though Democrats remain optimistic Nunn can overcome the red lean of the state and Obama’s deep unpopularity there this fall. Nunn

You might have read about how the Islamic State has been using Twitter and other social media platforms to gain power, attention and recruits. Now, though, a suspected Jerusalem-based affiliate of the jihadist group has announced that Twitter employees would be better off dead. The Twitter account with the handle @Dawlamoon, which has since been suspended, called on "lone wolf" terrorists in the United States and Europe to kill Twitter employees.

WASHINGTON — Homeland Security officials warned Wednesday they don’t have a full picture of the Americans and Europeans heading to Syria to train with ISIS and therefore can’t stop them from coming into the US. “We don’t have a fulsome picture in all cases,” said Jennifer Lasley, a deputy undersecretary at the Department of Homeland Security. “It does concern us,” added Troy Miller, an acting assistant commissioner with US Customs and Border Protection. House Homeland Security Committee chairman Rep. Michael McCaul (R-Texas) called the situation worrisome. “You don’t know what you don’t know. We only have estimates of how many

Cases of Ebola in West Africa are continuing to rise exponentially, with Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone together experiencing a 49% increase in cases in just the last three weeks. New data released Tuesday by the World Health Organization (WHO) shows that there are now a total of 4,269 cases in the three countries, including 2,288 deaths. Liberia alone has experienced a 68% increase in cases in the last three weeks. Localized clusters of Ebola have also been emerging in Nigeria and Senegal, where authorities have reported a combined total of 24 cases and eight deaths. On Monday, the WHO

Obama’s ISIS plan

If we’ve learned anything about fighting terrorism in the 13 years since the Sept. 11 attacks, it’s this: Keep the hubris and the expectations in check. (Snip) The goal under President George W. Bush was to bring democracy to the Middle East. Obama wants only to beat back a threat, a far more modest and realistic goal. “The United States has a well-established tendency to overreact and to shoot itself in the foot,” Harvard Professor Stephen M. Walt wrote in a New York Times op-ed last week. “The Bush administration panicked after 9/11 and overthrew Saddam Hussein, at a cost

Free money for everyone! With weak job growth, rising poverty, and the rich continuing to devour nearly all economic growth, it´s an idea that is gaining more credence. Arguments for a universal basic income (UBI) — in which everyone without exception would receive an equal stipend — have flourished in policy-centric areas of the internet, including The Week. Advocates of UBI see it as a blunter, more effective means of reducing poverty and shrinking the inequality gap. But even if UBI proponents are right on the merits, Tyler Cowen argues that the politics of the issue are not favorable. Under

   

 



 
How Obama plans to

Washington — President Obama’s speech Wednesday on the growing threat from Islamic State militants in Iraq and Syria represents a major test of his leadership. It’s being billed as an address to the nation, but it will reach far beyond that. Mr. Obama will be speaking foremost to the American people –Democrats, Republicans, and independents – in the heat of the midterm campaign. And it comes at a time of heightened sensitivity to terrorism, the eve of the 13th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, and the second anniversary of the attack on the US mission in Benghazi, Libya. Congress will

Horrible and barbarous as those executions were, don’t be impulsive, come up with a plan to knock ISIL back.”

Washington -- Americans are increasingly concerned that ISIS represents a direct terror threat, fearful that ISIS agents are living in the United States, according to a new CNN/ORC International poll. Most now support military action against the terrorist group. Seven in 10 Americans believe ISIS has the resources to launch an attack against the United States, just days before President Barack Obama plans to address the nation on the subject. The poll released Monday shows that Americans favor: -- Additional airstrikes against ISIS (76% favor, 23% oppose)-- Military aid to forces fighting ISIS (62% favor, 37% oppose) -- Providing humanitarian

Former President George W. Bush put together a 48 member coalition for the Iraq War in 2003. 40 of those members supported military operations and 37 provided some number troops. In April 2003, the list was updated to include 49 countries, though it was reduced to 48 after Costa Rica objected to its inclusion. Of the 48 states on the list, three contributed troops to the invasion force (the United Kingdom, Australia and Poland). An additional 37 countries provided some number of troops to support military operations after the invasion was complete. Despite these numbers the liberal media continues to push the lie

Voter turnout during last month´s primary races was a little too good in some counties, Arizona elections officials said Friday. Some precincts in northern Arizona tallied more ballots cast than there are registered voters, the Arizona Capitol Times reported. According to officials, errors made by poll workers and elections officials in Apache and Navajo counties led to the miscalculations. Initial reports from some precincts showed a turnout of anywhere from 200 to 400 percent. In Apache County, the Puerco West precinct reportedly had 100 votes cast, but only 23 voters are registered there. The voter turnout added up to 434

The Department of Labor coordinated with the White House on whether or not to release hidden portions of former Labor Secretary Hilda Solis’ schedule as Solis battled an FBI investigation into her illegal fundraising for President Obama. New emails provided to The Daily Caller from the nonprofit legal research firm Cause of Action show the White House thanking the Department of Labor for “flagging” a public information request for “withheld” portions of Solis’ schedule. The White House then asked for the name of the conservative group making the request — information that Labor officials were eager to give up. As TheDC previously

There’s a lot of competition for Barack Obama’s biggest lie. The man who could assure the American public with a straight face over thirty times that they could keep their doctor under his health plan, when he knew that to be completely false, is one hellluva fibber. But execrable as that serial prevarication may have been, it doesn’t hold a proverbial candle to his most recent whopper — that the Islamic State is not Islamic — not to mention its corollary, or perhaps subsidiary lie, that real religions do not indulge in murder. Islam has been doing that pretty much straight

Is a mutiny happening around President Obama? It appears possible that the president may not have made two of his most recent decisions with complete free will. The announcement that he would delay his immigration initiative until after the election and his formal announcement that the United States would take military action against the Islamic State could have been coerced. Maybe Democratic leaders in Congress and a few members of the Obama team have had it. Could it be that, after President Obama briefed Democrats in Congress on the immigration plan, they balked? Maybe the president was told that, if he

In an interview for Meet the Press´s "Press Pass" segment, Ryan and new host Chuck Todd might have been mistaken for being on a "No Labels" panel discussion as they both lamented how politicians are rewarded in "advocacy media outlets" for bold rhetoric and standing firm in their positions.
