Alarmist Points To Natural Oscillating Events As Proof Of Climate Change!!!!


Oh, my!  How stupid can one be?  Alarmist nutter HuffPo contributer Jessica Leader pointed to the AO (Arctic Oscillation) as proof of climate change. 


Data source for graph.

Leader was crying because Neil Cavuto and Charles Payne were laughing at the nutters protesting global warming in D.C. the other day. 

“I think they might call this a case of, I don’t know, bad optics,” he said, as Fox showed footage of protesters bundled in hats and scarves.

Fox Business analyst Charles Payne, who mocked not only the temperature, but the message of the rally. “Maybe that was it, maybe it was the icicles on their lips,” said Payne, laughing. He then imitated protesters trying to say the word “fracking” through frozen lips, a gag he repeated later in the segment.

Leader, apparently was jealous of the ridicule heaped on the protesters in DC, so she brought some mock worthy BS so people could laugh at her, too!  First, she asserts the warmcold hypothesis and it’s close relative the moreless snow phenomena, then she invokes the naturally occurring AO as the reason for winter storms.

After an extreme winter storm in the Northeast earlier this month, the AP reported that warmer winters punctuated by strong blizzards are consistent with climate change. Warmer temperatures cause a buildup of moisture in the atmosphere, which leads to snowier days during the winter.

“Shorter snow season, less snow overall, but the occasional knockout punch,” Princeton University climate scientist Michael Oppenheimer told the AP. “That’s the new world we live in.”

Studies show that even precipitation-free cold temperatures may be a byproduct of climate change. Arctic Oscillations (AO), the pressure patterns in the atmosphere that regulate weather, switch between positive and negative states. During “negative” AO, air pressure is weakened around the polar vortex, allowing colder temperatures to break out of the Arctic Circle and collide with warm fronts in some regions. This collision creates extreme winter temperatures.

As for Oppenheimer’s idiocy, I’ve already addressed his idiotic assertion


We’re not having less snow.  Yep, that’s the new world we live in……. exactly like the old one.  The study Leader quoted actually blamed 2 naturally occurring quasi oscillating events……

The major teleconnection patterns of the Northern Hemisphere, El Niño/Southern Oscillation (ENSO) and the Arctic Oscillation (AO) were of moderate to strong amplitude, making both potentially key players during the winter of 2009–2010.

Shock news!!! ENSO and AO partially effects our climate!!!!!  Next they’ll be telling us the rotating and orbital features of the earth also can effect our climate!!!!  Proof positive that we need a tax to stop weather! 

I’m thinking we need to go back in history and look for other periodicities of ages of stupid.

    Somehow, the Dark Ages is the idea that immediately came to mind (post Roman Empire mild -> cold ‘climate’ change then the post Medieval Warm Period mild -> cold ‘climate’ change). We are coming out of the Little Ice Age (strictly speaking, from a geological point of view, we are in an Ice Age now with a nice little interglacial mild period to live in). We should be thankful for the current mild climate and decent weather.

      My thoughts exactly. The Dark Ages were marked by unparalleled ignorance and superstition. I had thought the cold climate was in part the cause of this. But, I’m now leaning to the thought that there may simply be a cyclic nature in ages of stupid.

    Oh yes, an intellectual Dark Age for sure. The Dept. of Ed. has seen to that–people have to be taught to be this stupid.

    Climate Change, is there anything it can’t do. Climate scientists, is there anything they can’t prove. Computers are wonderful tools.

    It’s ding that More-Less stuff here at my home 🙂

    I’m in moreless mode myself Kim….LOL

    Kim, James, Mike, Phil, Dirk, everyone…

    I just told Comcast to bugger off….they went up again

    Do you guys know how to get TV on the computer……then send it to the Kitchen TV???

    The only time we watch TV is when we are eating dinner…..background noise….I’ve been paying $80 a month to watch The Five!

    Is there anything on the internet, news?, Glenn Beck?, some kind of news, that I can program to run on the PC, not movies and not really shows either…then send it to the Kit TV while we are eating? I dunno!

    According to this new paper, oscillating events do create climate change, but not by CO2, human or otherwise:


    “There exist a clear phase relationship between changes of atmospheric CO2 and the different global temperature records, whether representing sea surface temperature, surface air temperature, or lower troposphere temperature, with changes in the amount of atmospheric CO2 always lagging behind corresponding changes in temperature.”

    Next they’ll suddenly decide that the Earth as a tilted rotating sphere that is heated and illuminated by the sun on one side, while being darker and colder on the other, affects weather patterns and climate.
    If they do then all the computer models are wrong.
