BRRRRRRR!: SUNSPOT ACTIVITY TO HIT CENTURY LOW; COLDEST WINTER IN CHINA IN 28 YEARS!

CHINA:
China is experiencing unusual chills this winter with its national average temperature hitting the lowest in 28 years, and snow and ice have closed highways, canceled flights, stranded tourists and knocked out power in several provinces. 
China Meteorological Administration on Friday said the national average was -3.8 degrees Celsius (25 degrees Fahrenheit) since late November, the coldest in nearly three decades.
AND THIS:
The sun's peak of solar activity this year will likely be the quietest seen in at least 100 years, say NASA scientists who watch Earth's closest star daily. Sunspot numbers are low, researchers said, even as the sun reaches the peak of its 11-year activity cycle. Also, radio waves that are known to indicate high solar activity have been very subdued. 
"It's likely to be the lowest solar maximum, as measured by sunspot 'number,' in more than a century," wrote Joe Gurman, a project scientist for NASA's sun-observing mission Stereo, or Solar TErrestrial RElations Observatory. The current sun weather cycle is known as Solar Cycle 24.
THE SUN HAS MORE EFFECT ON EARTH'S CLIMATE THAN CO2 - WHICH IS BENIGN.

IF CO2 DETERMINED OUR CLIMATE, THEN WE'D BE HAVING THE WARMEST WINTERS EVER.

WE'RE NOT.

IOW: AGW IS NOTHING MORE THAN CO2PHOBIA AND A LEFTIST SCHEME TO CONTROL INDUSTRY AND OUR ECONOMY.

UPDATE: MORE PROOF HERE.

DON'T BE DUPED.

Alaskans coping with another round of 50-below during the coldest winter in two decades, or to the mariners locked out of the Bering Sea this spring by record ice growth.
Then again, it might. The 49th state has long been labeled one of the fastest-warming spots on the planet. But that's so 20th Century.


In the first decade since 2000, the 49th state cooled 2.4 degrees Fahrenheit

Globally, September through November 2012 (data not complete for December yet) is the 2nd warmest for the combined land an ocean temperature in 133 years. The constant need to cherry-pick data instead of comparing the best, global data sets, does not speak well of the evidence for your beliefs.

I don't think that anyone ever said that CO2 "determined our climate" -- it is a factor. There are other factors. See the IPCC report for additional details on climate forcing factors in recent decades.

YANGTREE:

ALL TEMPS TAKEN AT LOCAL WEATHER STATIONS ARE CHERRY-PICKED.

ONLY SATELLITE TEMP OF THE ENTIRE PLANET IS A GLOBAL TEMP.

WEATHER STATIONS HAVE BEEN PROVEN TO BE PLACED IN LOCATIONS THAT HAVE HEAT ISLAND EFFECTS.

DELIBERATELY.

BY THE SOCIALISTS WHO INVENTED THE AGW THREAT IN ORDER TO CONTROL INDUSTRY AND THE ECONOMY.

CLIMATE CHANGE IS NATURAL.

AND THERE IS NOTHING UNUSUAL ABOUT RECENT WARMING, NOTHING WHICH DIFFERS FROM HISTORICAL AND PREHISTORICAL FLUCTUATIONS.

YOU CANNOT DENT THIS.

IF YOU DO ALL YOU'RE REALLY DOING IS PROVING YOU ARE AN ASSHOLE WHO'D RATHER PROMOTE A DIMINUTION OF LIBERTY AND PROSPERITY IN ORDER TO FURTHER YOUR SOCIALISTIC UTOPIAN DREAM - WHICH IS AND ALWAYS HAS BEEN A NIGHTMARE FOR ALL HUMANITY.

The satellite temperature record agrees very closely with the global average from surface stations.

WEATHER STATIONS HAVE BEEN PROVEN TO BE PLACED IN LOCATIONS THAT HAVE HEAT ISLAND EFFECTS. DELIBERATELY.
So, according to Occam's Razor, it's easier for you to believe in a global conspiracy of socialist scientists than that your are wrong. Awesome.
There are lots of rural stations and non-rural stations that are used for surface temperature measurement. The trend of warming is the same for both rural stations and non-rural stations.

YOU CANNOT DENT THIS. Consider it dented :-)

Your confusing science with policy. This is never a good position to be in when trying to evaluate a scientific argument rationally. Science is what can answer the question, "Is rapid climate change happening?" and "Is the main cause of this change increases in greenhouse gas levels caused by man" and "what solutions can be offered to alter this course." Policy is used to determine the best course of action, if any. Surely, you can see that there is a possible belief that the answer to the first two questions is "yes" and "socialistic utopian dream" is not the only possible answer to the third.

According to you, the definition of closemindedness was to not listen to Bjorn Lomborg in 2007. Are you willing to listen to him now? If not, what is your judgement of yourself?

Question: What are the facts actually telling us about global warming?

Bjørn Lomborg: Global warming is real, it’s man-made, it is a problem that we need to fix. But just like we shouldn’t say it’s not happening, we shouldn’t over and say it’s going to be the end of the world. Global warming is going to be a problem. We estimate it’s going to cost about half a percentage point of the GDP of the 21st century. That’s substantial, but not the end of the world.

Question: How much do we need to invest in R&D for sustainability?

Bjørn Lomborg: We asked some of the world’s top climate economists what are the best ways to fix climate? They told us the best long-term way is by dramatically increasing investment in research and development of green energy. They said spend $100 billion or about 0.2% of global GDP, every year. That’s about 50 times than what the world spends today.

nobody denies there was some warming until about ten years ago.

unbiased scientists have PROOF that it is not outside historical ranges.

and unbiased scientists agree that man-made CO@ and GHG's aren't responsible.

SCIENTIFIC TESTS PROVE COSMIC RAYS ARE RESPONSIBLE - ALONG WITH THE SUN CYCLES.

biased scientists deny the fact of the medieval warming period.

bias is not a conspiracy.

bias is taught at biased schools by biased teachers.

racism is not a conspiracy.

it is taught the same way: one bigot to another.

climate alarmists are like bigots.

2 - bjorn is not a god; he i right about a lot and wrong about some thing, too.

3 - ONLY A MORON WOULD DENY HEAT ISLAND EFFECTS - OR THAT WEATHER STATIONS BUILT IN THE LAST 20 YEARS HAVE A BUILT IN BIAS AS MANY ARE TOO CLOSE TO HEAT ISLANDS.

STATIONS NEAR HEAT ISLANDS WILL SHOW THE SAME TRENDS AS THOSE NOT NEAR THEM

YOU FUCKING DUPE!
