This is just as creepy and disturbing as the the guys from this generation I know.

The debate over global warming is over!!


"....a 98 percent chance of human made global warming. That means we’re pretty darn certain."
 
"here’s how the model does that: We take all the polls entered into the database in each state and calculate a trendline to estimate what they say in the aggregate."

This highly scientific prediction methodology that are used in series of fields can be studied in great detail here . It almost never miss!

algore part deux

in the sequel, algore lies about what he predicted in part I to make it look like his predictions came true

south pole accumulated deviation from average freezing days. How do I interpret this? Is the temperature on the south pole since September on average 8-10 deg higher now??

Tricky!

A definition of FDD. The fact that January accumulated about -250 FDD suggests that the temperature was, on average, about +8°C on an absolute scale (not a relative scale).

In theory, FDD should be a simple proxy for the amount of freezing and thawing going on because the amount of heat transfer is proportional to the temperature differential multiplied by time (obviously, this ignores the effect of wind and sun). If there's five days at -1° C, that's +5 freezing-degree days which would induce a certain amount of freezing of any liquid water. If the following day averages +5°, that's -5 freezing-degree days which would undo the previous effect of five days of light freeze.

That this year's accumulated FDD from Sept to Feb has been -1250 but the usual FDD is around -560 suggests: 1) there's been more than twice as much thawing occurring; 2) temperatures have averaged about (-560 - -1250)/150 = + 4.6° C warmer than those of previous years.

US scientists raise bar for sea level by 2100

"The report by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) set the "extreme" scenario of global average sea level rise by 2100 to 8.2 feet (2.5 meters), up half a meter from the last estimate issued in 2012."

NASA / NOAA Climate Data Is Fake Data
NOAA shows the Earth red hot in December, with record heat in central Africa.
(snip)
The map above is fake. NOAA has almost no temperature data from Africa, and none from central Africa. They simply made up the record temperatures.
(snip)
Satellites show that NOAA’s” record hot regions in Africa were actually close to normal.
