Put your blinders on and listen too the latest TV weather readers …
Just when you thought Global Warming was becoming a non-issue, we have one week of warm weather IN JULY and the Chicken Little’s come out of the woodwork saying the world is coming to an end.
We have an eastern U.S. blocking high pressure system over the Atlantic.
But looking at the world weather map, to find global warming shows this … A weather related feature referred to as a blocking high. It’s weather, not climate. See the difference? Understand the difference?
Yep the Eastern USA is hot, but how about the Western USA? Not so much ehh. And how is that global warming? Isn’t the whole globe supposed to warm? Not just a few patches? Satellites, modern easy way to see things, like global weather.
And what is the lamestream media saying as they dutifully push the myth to you?
First off it’s not global. Just today England was fretting about how cold and wet the Olympics will be. At least their long range forecasters are telling them that.
The is weather, not climate. It is caused by a persistent blocking high pressure pattern. In a day or two, that red splotch over the eastern USA will be gone.

Climatologist Dr. Roy Spencer puts it in perspective

November 30 marked the 33rd year of the data record of using satellite data to calculate atmospheric temperatures. Published monthly, these data are the most comprehensive and rigorous collection of global temperatures in existence. When adjusted for volcanic cooling events and unusually strong El Niño warming events, the data from the lower troposphere show little global warming over the entire record. The lower troposphere is precisely where the climate models predict the warming should take place, especially above the tropics. The recorded warming is largely above 60 degrees North Latitude, especially the Arctic.
University of Alabama, Huntsville, scientists Roy Spencer and John Christy are to be congratulated and esteemed for their scientific efforts and scientific integrity in consistently publishing the results of their findings, regardless of short warming or cooling periods.
The notes accompanying the release of the data state: “While Earth’s climate has warmed in the last 33 years, the climb has been irregular. There was little or no warming for the first 19 years of satellite data. Clear net warming did not occur until the El Niño Pacific Ocean ‘warming event of the century’ in late 1997. Since that upward jump, there has been little or no additional warming.”
“Christy and other UA Huntsville scientists have calculated the cooling effect caused by the eruptions of Mexico’s El Chichon volcano in 1982 and the Mt. Pinatubo volcano in the Philippines in 1991. When that cooling is subtracted, the long-term warming effect is reduced to 0.09 C (0.16° F) per decade, well below computer model estimates of how much global warming should have occurred.”
Of course, these measurements contradict the land surface measurements of temperatures so widely cited as proof of human-caused global warming. Please see links under “Challenging the Orthodoxy.”

Global Warming Theory Faces Sudden Collapse — a huge discrepancy between global-warming theory and actual, observable reality
Every day it seems new evidence emerges that the “evidence” for global warming has been exaggerated, manufactured or just plain wrong.
Take the case of Charles Monnett of the US Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement. On July 18, Monnett — a longtime poster boy for global-warming orthodoxy — was put on leave pending an investigation into the “integrity” of his work.
The specifics of the investigation are as yet unclear, but the Associated Press reports on indications that the questioning “has centered on observations that Monnett and fellow researcher Jeffrey Gleason made in 2004 . . . of four dead polar bears floating in the water after a storm. They detailed their observations in an article published two years later in the journal Polar Biology.”
Monnett and Gleason claimed this was the first known observation of polar bears apparently drowning after being forced to swim long distances in the open sea. Naturally, they saw global warming — which allegedly is shrinking the polar ice caps — as the culprit.

Yes, why do you ask?
Has a central tenant of global warming just collapsed?
Climate change forecasts have for years predicted that carbon dioxide would trap heat on Earth, and increases in the gas would lead to a planetwide rise in temperatures, with devastating consequences for the environment.
But long-term data from NASA satellites seems to contradict the predictions dramatically, according to a new study.
“There is a huge discrepancy between the data and the forecasts that is especially big over the oceans,” said Dr. Roy Spencer, a research scientist at the University of Alabama in Huntsville and U.S. science team leader for the Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer — basically a big thermometer flying on NASA’s Aqua satellite.
“The satellite observations suggest there is much more energy lost to space during and after warming than the climate models show,” he said. The planet isn’t heating up, in other words.
