Global Warming slams America for Election Day


Recommended Posts

There has been an overwhelming focus on the election recently...and the debate moderators certainly ignored this incredibly important topic almost completely.....but human caused global warming and its consequent climate changes are still happening at increasing rates and affecting people, animals, plants, the oceans and the Earth's ice more and more every month. 2016 is still going to be the third-in-a-row 'hottest year on record'.

 

More importantly for voters in the USA, the warmer weather we've had in October marks a continuation of a calendar year that has produced very little in the way of extremely cold weather in America.

 

"This year has produced 20,847 U.S. daily record highs but a mere 3920 record lows," notes Weather Undergrounds Henson. "The latter may sound like a lot, but its a phenomenally low number. Since the mid-1920s the nation has notched at least 9000 daily record lows by the end of October in every single year. This year, were not even halfway to that point!"

Heat records are vastly outnumbering cold records in Washington

 

A lot of sane intelligent people are noticing what is happening and they are not going to vote for the deluded or corrupt deniers of the scientifically confirmed reality of our perilous situation.

 

Fall Heat Wave Will Smash Records Into the First Days of November

November 1, 2016

November will kickoff with summer-like heat, shattering hundreds of daily records, and also threatening all-time November records in parts of the heat-weary South and Plains states.

 

On Tuesday, all-time November record highs were set in Austin, Texas (91 degrees), Birmingham, Alabama (88 degrees), Huntsville, Alabama (88 degrees), Nashville, Tennessee (88 degrees), and Louisville, Kentucky (85 degrees).

 

Additional daily records were set Tuesday in San Angelo, Texas (91 degrees), Midland, Texas (90 degrees), Tupelo, Mississippi (88 degrees), Jackson, Tennessee (88 degrees), and Joplin, Missouri (83 degrees).

 

Current Temperatures

 

Some southern cities could set a new daily record high each day for the next few days.

 

This continues what has been a much warmer-than-average October-early November for the vast majority of Americans east of the Rockies, including a mid-October warm spell that shattered records.

 

Below are details on the forecast temperatures through Friday.

Wednesday's Forecast

Forecast Highs Compared to Average Wednesday

* Highs 10-25 degrees above average will spread into parts of the Northeast, while also continuing in much of the Midwest and South.

* 70s are expected in the southern Great Lakes, Ohio Valley and mid-Atlantic states.

* 80s will dominate the Southeast and southern Plains, though it won't be quite as warm as previous days.

* Numerous daily record highs will again be within reach in the Southeast and Ohio Valley

 

Thursday's Forecast

Forecast Highs Compared to Average Thursday

* Highs 10-20 degrees above average will continue in much of the South and East, and a new surge of such warm air will intensify in the northern Plains.

* 70s will surge as far north as southern New England, though part of the interior Northeast and northern New England will be cooler.

* 80s will once again dominate the Southeast and Deep South, though cooler temperatures will plunge into parts of the southern Plains.

* Daily record highs will be within reach in parts of the Southeast and mid-Atlantic states.

Friday's Forecast

Forecast Highs Compared to Average Friday

* Highs 10-20 degrees above average will bake the northern Rockies, northern Plains and Midwest.

* 60s and 70s will surge as far north as the Canadian border.

* 80s will be likely in the Southwest and along the Gulf Coast, although temperatures will be cooler than earlier in the week.

* Daily record highs are possible, but records should be more isolated.

 

Heat Wave Recap

Thursday, October 27, Phoenix smashed their record latest-in-season 100-degree high by four days.

2:33 PM - 27 Oct 2016

 

Other record highs were tied or set Thursday in Denver (83 degrees), Salt Lake City (78 degrees) and Tucson, Arizona (97 degrees).

 

Friday, October 28, record highs were shattered in Garden City, Kansas (91 degrees - old record was 83), and Dodge City, Kansas (92 degrees - old record was 85) and new records were set in Amarillo, Texas (87 degrees), Pueblo, Colorado (87 degrees) and Meridian, Mississippi (89 degrees).

 

Friday was the fifth daily record high this month in Meridian, and was their hottest temperature so late in the season. Previously, the latest they reached 89 degrees was October 26, 2010. This is their average high on September 8.

 

Daily record high temperatures were toppled in many cities on Saturday. Among them were Huntsville, Alabama (88 degrees), and Amarillo, Texas (91 degrees), which both saw their warmest temperature so late in the calendar year.

 

Daily record highs were also set Saturday in Asheville, North Carolina (81 degrees), Blacksburg, Virginia (79 degrees), Nashville, Tennessee (86 degrees), Tupelo, Mississippi (89 degrees), St. Louis, Missouri (86 degrees), and Phoenix, Arizona (96 degrees).

 

Numerous daily record highs were broken Sunday. Atlanta's record high of 86 degrees was the latest 86-degree day on record there, surpassing the previous date of Oct. 28, 1940.

 

Meridian, Mississippi, hit 90 degrees Sunday, the latest such reading on record, there, beating the previous record by a full week (Oct. 23, 1941), not to mention adding to a new yearly record of 90-degree-plus days, there.

2:06 PM - 30 Oct 2016

 

Other daily records were tied or set Sunday in Birmingham, Alabama (87 degrees), Knoxville, Tennessee (83 degrees), New Orleans (87 degrees), Austin, Texas (88 degrees), Washington D.C.'s Dulles Airport (84 degrees), Harrisburg, Pennsylvania (81 degrees), and Atlantic City, New Jersey (80 degrees).

 

Dozens of daily record highs were broken Monday, making it the hottest Halloween on record in those cities.

 

Among those, at least four cities set their hottest temperatures so late in the season, including Atlanta (86 degrees), Huntsville, Alabama (88 degrees), Muscle Shoals, Alabama (88 degrees), and Tallahassee, Florida (90 degrees).

 

A number of other cities reached 90 degrees on Halloween, including Colby, Kansas, Dodge City, Kansas, Garden City, Kansas, Hattiesburg, Mississippi, Meridian, Mississippi, Montgomery, Alabama, Albany, Georgia, and Macon, Georgia.

 

Meridian, Mississippi, has arguably been an epicenter city for this heat wave, reaching 91 degrees on back-to-back days October 30 and 31.

ROFLMAO

 

Global warming idiocy.

 

All Gore predictions have fallen on their face.

Polar Ice and glaciers still exist.

Pacific islands still exist.

CO2 has been found to be beneficial and not causing global warming. The temperature of earth and moon track each other. This was explained to me by a Hughs scientist I taught about the telemetry system that would launch a satellite that was going to monitor the upper atmosphere. The output of the sun changes with surface anomalies and causes the temperature of earth and moon to vary some.

 

This crackpot idea has been exposed to be a false concept years ago. Still people like this fool keep spouting this gibberish nonsense!!

Even if global warming wasn't real the other dangers of fossil fuels particularly oil and coal are damaging.

 

Nuclear is less scary than coal and oil.

 

There may be ways to turn it around and cool the oceans a degree.

There are still a half dozen Chernobyl type reactors on line. No containment buildings. This is very very real.

Beneath those buildings is a thing called "ground water".

Shouldn't you human caused global warming alarmists get a few predictions correct before anyone believes you?

 

I, unfortunately, watched some of the Bill Nye/Arnold 'documentary' from last year the other day and I just hope someone saves his predictions for the year 2050 to show how wrong they are/were when we get there.

 

Then they had a totally biased show with Leonardo DiCaprio after that with all the doom/gloom constantly conflating pollution and CO2 and the supposed effects on the climate.

ROFLMAO Global warming idiocy.

You are a good example of anti-science denier cult idiocy.

 

 

 

 

 

All Gore predictions have fallen on their face.

Your collection of denier cult myths is very pathetic.....and just demonstrates your deluded idiocy.....and no, little retard, climate science predictions, including most of the ones reported by former Vice President Gore, have either already been happening or are starting to happen now. Many predictions proved to be too conservative....things are happening even faster than they predicted.

 

Here's some examples....

 

Global Climate Models have successfully predicted:

 

That the globe would warm, and about how fast, and about how much.

That the troposphere would warm and the stratosphere would cool.

That nighttime temperatures would increase more than daytime temperatures.

That winter temperatures would increase more than summer temperatures.

Polar amplification (greater temperature increase as you move toward the poles).

That the Arctic would warm faster than the Antarctic.

The magnitude (0.3 K) and duration (two years) of the cooling from the Mt. Pinatubo eruption.

They made a retrodiction for Last Glacial Maximum sea surface temperatures which was inconsistent with the paleo evidence, and better paleo evidence showed the models were right.

They predicted a trend significantly different and differently signed from UAH satellite temperatures, and then a bug was found in the satellite data.

The amount of water vapor feedback due to ENSO.

The response of southern ocean winds to the ozone hole.

The expansion of the Hadley cells.

The poleward movement of storm tracks.

The rising of the tropopause and the effective radiating altitude.

The clear sky super greenhouse effect from increased water vapor in the tropics.

The near constancy of relative humidity on global average.

That coastal upwelling of ocean water would increase.

 

Climate models are even more accurate than you thought

How reliable are climate models?

How Reliable Are the Models Used to Make Projections of Future Climate Change? - NOAA

Polar Ice and glaciers still exist.

Polar ice and glaciers are rapidly melting and disappearing and raising sea levels. That effect of global warming takes time but the rate of melting is increasing.

 

Impacts of a melting cryosphere ice loss around the world

With delicately balanced ecosystems, weather patterns and a lot of ice, the planets frozen areas (collectively known as the cryosphere) are some of the most sensitive to climate change. The cryosphere comprises of the Earths ice notably the Arctic, the Antarctic, and the worlds glaciers.

 

Historical records suggest that Arctic sea ice began to decline around 1900, with a more accelerated ice loss since the 1950s. Since 1979, satellite records have confirmed an overall decline in summer sea ice coverage of around 13% per decade. The major body of land ice in the Arctic -- the Greenland ice sheet -- is thinning and shrinking, at an accelerating rate. Overall, the Greenland ice sheet has been found to be losing ice mass over the last twenty years, and this ice loss is becoming faster.

 

Around the world, mountain glaciers are also losing ice mass. For example, a study of the Patagonian ice fields found that the rate of ice loss in the area has increased over the 20th century. Another group of scientists modelled around 120,000 glaciers around the world, concluding that they are likely to lose around a fifth of their ice volume over the next century.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pacific islands still exist.

Pacific islands are in the process of being inundated by the rising sea levels created by global warming. Residents are being forced to migrate to other places.

CO2 has been found to be beneficial and not causing global warming.

While CO2 is necessary fo life, too much of it is quite dangerous. In the real world, CO2 "has been found" - and quite thoroughly scientifically confirmed - to be a powerful greenhouse gas that directly affects temperatures on Earth.

So random hearsay is your source for info on AGW. LOLOLOLOLOLOL.

 

In the real world....

 

The American Geophysical Union (AGU) adopted a statement on Climate Change and Greenhouse Gases in 1998.[59] A new statement, adopted by the society in 2003, revised in 2007,[60] and revised and expanded in 2013,[61] affirms that rising levels of greenhouse gases have caused and will continue to cause the global surface temperature to be warmer:

 

Human activities are changing Earths climate. At the global level, atmospheric concentrations of carbon dioxide and other heat-trapping greenhouse gases have increased sharply since the Industrial Revolution. Fossil fuel burning dominates this increase. Human-caused increases in greenhouse gases are responsible for most of the observed global average surface warming of roughly 0.8 °C (1.5 °F) over the past 140 years. Because natural processes cannot quickly remove some of these gases (notably carbon dioxide) from the atmosphere, our past, present, and future emissions will influence the climate system for millennia.

 

While important scientific uncertainties remain as to which particular impacts will be experienced where, no uncertainties are known that could make the impacts of climate change inconsequential. Furthermore, surprise outcomes, such as the unexpectedly rapid loss of Arctic summer sea ice, may entail even more dramatic changes than anticipated.

The American Meteorological Society (AMS) statement adopted by their council in 2012 concluded:

 

There is unequivocal evidence that Earths lower atmosphere, ocean, and land surface are warming; sea level is rising; and snow cover, mountain glaciers, and Arctic sea ice are shrinking. The dominant cause of the warming since the 1950s is human activities. This scientific finding is based on a large and persuasive body of research. The observed warming will be irreversible for many years into the future, and even larger temperature increases will occur as greenhouse gases continue to accumulate in the atmosphere. Avoiding this future warming will require a large and rapid reduction in global greenhouse gas emissions. The ongoing warming will increase risks and stresses to human societies, economies, ecosystems, and wildlife through the 21st century and beyond, making it imperative that society respond to a changing climate. To inform decisions on adaptation and mitigation, it is critical that we improve our understanding of the global climate system and our ability to project future climate through continued and improved monitoring and research. This is especially true for smaller (seasonal and regional) scales and weather and climate extremes, and for important hydroclimatic variables such as precipitation and water availability.

 

Technological, economic, and policy choices in the near future will determine the extent of future impacts of climate change. Science-based decisions are seldom made in a context of absolute certainty. National and international policy discussions should include consideration of the best ways to both adapt to and mitigate climate change. Mitigation will reduce the amount of future climate change and the risk of impacts that are potentially large and dangerous. At the same time, some continued climate change is inevitable, and policy responses should include adaptation to climate change. Prudence dictates extreme care in accounting for our relationship with the only planet known to be capable of sustaining human life.[72]

Damn.. pogo posts so many lies, it's impossible to keep up with them all.

 

Greenland's ice sheet is not melting, it's growing.

A Norwegian-led team used the ERS data to measure elevation changes in the Greenland Ice Sheet from 1992 to 2003, finding recent growth in the interior sections estimated at around six centimetres per year during the study period. The research is due to be published by Science Magazine in November, having been published in the online Science Express on 20 October.

What the delusional and very retarded denier cultists like the GrovelingBastard call "lies" are what normal people call well confirmed scientific facts....with links to reputable sources.

 

 

 

A real link attached to a bogus headline. (actual headline on article - "ERS ALTIMETER SURVEY SHOWS GROWTH OF GREENLAND ICE SHEET INTERIOR")

 

The ESA study was only studying an apparent small increase in ice height in the interior of Greenland - not the ice loss on the coastline - for a period of time that ended in 2003, 13 years ago....conditions on Greenland have changed enormously since then. From the article....

Greenland lost a staggering 1 trillion tons of ice in just four years

The Washington Post

By Chelsea Harvey

July 19, 2016

A satellite study, published last week in the journal Geophysical Research Letters, suggests that the Greenland ice sheet lost a whopping 1 trillion tons of ice between the years 2011 and 2014 alone. And a big portion of it came from just five glaciers, about which scientists now have more cause to worry than ever.

 

Its the latest story in a long series of increasingly worrisome studies on ice loss in Greenland. Research already suggests that the ice sheet has lost at least 9 trillion tons of ice in the past century and that the rate of loss has increased over time. Climate scientists are keeping a close eye on the region because of its potentially huge contributions to future sea-level rise (around 20 feet if the whole thing were to melt) -- not to mention the damage its already done. Ice loss from Greenland may have contributed as much as a full inch of sea-level rise in the last 100 years and up to 10 percent of all the sea-level rise thats been documented since the 1990s.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Yup! It sure is!

 

Arctic sea ice is vanishing far faster than anyone thought possible

Arctic sea ice is melting at a rate far faster than anyone thought, and it is already wildly, and perhaps permanently, changing the region, and the planet.

 

Historically, sea ice forms every winter across the top of the planet, and covers much of the Arctic Ocean. Every summer, the ice melts a bit and retreats, only to repeat the cycle again. But since the 1980s, the ice has been retreating further and further overall, contributing to changes to ecosystems, and erosion so severe it is biting off chunks of coastlines in Alaska, Canada and elsewhere. It even is exacerbating the warming trend in the Arctic.

 

As 2016 continues apace to be one of the warmest years on record, Arctic sea ice levels appear to be among the lowest on record, said Tom Wagner, program manager for NASA's cryosphere research -- a name given to the study of frozen regions of the planet. "It doesn't look like the ice is healing or growing back."

 

"By some accounts we have lost more than two-thirds of the ice that used to be back in the 1980s," Wagner said. "This looks to be a very, very long-term trend and we are only going to be losing more ice."

 

This matters because the "health" of the ice is considered a general indicator of what is going on in the Earth's total climate system.

 

"This is not something that will affect humanity in the far off future," Wagner said, "loss of this ice is already wildly changing the Arctic," and rippling outward to the rest of the planet.

 

For example, sea level rise is exacerbating the warming trend in the Arctic, indirectly contributing to phenomena such permafrost thaw, land ice melting and sea level rise.

 

Sea ice forms a kind of mirrored hat over the ocean that holds heat in, and reflects sunlight, Wagner told CNBC. As the ice recedes, the ocean releases more heat into the atmosphere, and the dark ocean absorbs more sunlight. This causes more warming in the region, and leads to phenomena such as permafrost thaw, another process that is contributing to further warming. It also melts more land ice, further raising sea levels.

 

"The planet is not just changing, it is changed," Wagner said. "And we have to deal with the change that has occurred. The melting of the glaciers in Alaska and Canada and Greenland is already raising sea levels to the point that Miami and New York are experiencing flooding."

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

CO2 is causing Warming?

Yup! CO2 is indeed causing global warming. As virtually the entire world scientific community affirms.

 

Atmospheric CO2: Principal Control Knob Governing Earth's Temperature

BTW, Murray Salby is a crackpot denier cult fraud! And his graph is completely bogus!

 

Since you were stupid enough to use the SkepticalScience article that debunks Salby's fraudulent twaddle to get the graph you're using, here is the real, science-based graph from the same source...or we can look at the similar ones from NASA and NOAA.

Once again pogogotrocks...I believe in global warming and that mankind is adding to to it.

 

However there are alot of other problems in the world that need addressing first.

 

ultraliberals act like it is something out of a 1950 horror movie about to destroy the Earth unless it's stoped by tomorrow.

Very doubtful, considering your posting history, OldCrackhead. You are rather obviously a very ignorant brainwashed twit.

Nope! Human caused global warming and its consequent climate changes are by far the most urgent problem the world is facing now. Your denial of that fact just shows how fraudulent your first claim was.

 

If you actually want to learn something, read this....

Even more than the heroin epidemic that kills people by the thousands (around the world) every day ?

 

And than you have ISIS burning kids alive or how about our homeless VETs that have mental health problems ?

 

pogogotrocks you are really saying that is nothing compared to global warming ???

 

Dude...you are in denial and it's the ultraliberal cult thats to blame.

Well obviously you were again too stupid and brainwashed to even read the evidence, OldCrackhead.

 

And yes, AGW/CC is indeed a far worse problem for the whole planet and all of the living things on it than any of the relatively trivial problems you mention, you poor clueless moron.

 

 

 

Dude...I am in denial and it's the fossil fuel industry's astroturfed cult of denial that's to blame.

Yeah, we know!

Just in time to remind Americans by Election Day that human caused global warming is still accelerating and still a major problem that our country and the world have to face.....and hopefully to remind Americans not to vote for ANY of the fossil fuel industry stooges in Congress who are blocking effective action to deal with the climate change crisis just so that their corporate and 1%er puppetmasters can continue to profit from selling the stuff that is flooding our atmosphere with excess carbon dioxide and destroying the climate stability the human race has enjoyed for the last 10,000 years. The current national heat wave has been lengthy, and occurs in the context of 16 months in a row where every month was the hottest month of that name on record, going back to 1880...and with 2016 being the (inevitable at this point) third consequetive 'hottest year on record'.

 

Records Are In Jeopardy For Latest First Freeze in the Midwest

WeatherUnderground

Linda Lam

Published: November 6, 2016

Another side effect of the record warmth that has dominated much of the U.S. since October is the lacking of freezing temperatures. Most cities in the Midwest have yet to see the thermometer drop to the 32-degree mark and now records are in jeopardy.

 

A persistent upper-level ridge of high pressure has brought warmer than average temperatures to the Plains, Midwest, South, and at times the Northeast. There does not appear to be a pattern change until mid-November at the earliest.

 

Numerous daily record highs were set at the end of October and beginning of November and a few monthly record highs were even brokenfor November. More record highs have been set this weekend, including in Minneapolis which hit 73 degrees Saturday. This trend now has its sights set on breaking records for latest first freeze.

 

Temperatures below freezing have been hard to come by lately in the contiguous U.S. You need to head towards northern New England and some of the higher elevations of the inter-mountain West to find freezing conditions. Consequently, locations that would have normally seen their first freeze of the season are still waiting.

 

Current Temperatures

 

Minneapolis is one of the cities that have yet to see temperatures dip to 32 degrees. The current record for latest freeze is Nov. 7, set more than 100 years ago in 1900. This record is expected to be broken as lows are expected to be in the 40s through Tuesday, Nov. 8. Temperatures may get close to the freezing mark next Saturday morning.

 

In addition, Minneapolis may also break the record for longest streak of days above freezing. Through Nov. 5 the current streak is at 207 days and the record is 215 days set in 2010.

 

It is also interesting to note that Minneapolis has only seen their first freeze in November seven times since 1873, the last this occurred was in 1958.

 

La Crosse, Wisconsin, will also likely see its latest first freeze if the temperature stays above 32 degrees through Nov. 7. That record could be extended right through late this week before temperatures flirt with the freezing mark next weekend.

Dates of latest first freeze on record and average freeze based on data from 1981-2010.

One location that has already set a record for longest stretch between freezes, according to ACIS, is Grand Rapids, Michigan. Through Nov. 5 the streak is 207 days and the previous record was 198 days set in 2000. They have yet to hit the freezing mark so the streak continues. They may also break their record for latest freeze, which currently stands at Nov. 14, but temperatures may get close to 32 degrees next Saturday morning, which would just miss the record by two days.

 

Another Michigan city that could set a new record for latest freeze is Detroit. The current record is Nov. 15, which was set in 1946 and the current forecast does not anticipate freezing temperatures before then. However, lows in the mid 30s are expected late in the week ahead.

 

Madison, Wisconsin is another location that may break their latest freeze record. The current latest freeze is Nov. 12 and lows in the 40s are expected into much of this week. However, late week temperatures may briefly drop close to the 32-degree mark.

 

Another city to watch is Des Moines, Iowa where lows are expected to approach 32 degrees late this upcoming week. The current record is Nov. 13 so it will be interesting to see how close to the freezing mark temperatures drop.

 

If the current warm forecast holds then more records may fall later this month. This includes Kansas City, Missouri, and Chicago which both have records for latest freeze on Nov. 24, as well as St. Louis, Indianapolis and Cleveland which have their latest freezes currently on Nov. 27.

Even if records are not broken, many locations will see their first freeze a month or more later than their average first freeze.

 

Farther east, many cities in the interior Northeast have already seen their first freeze, but along the East Coast they are still waiting for the winter chill. This is not unusual though, as Boston, New York, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C. all normally see their first freeze in November, with their record latest freezes occurring in December.

 

There are indications than a southward dip in the jet stream may develop over the East mid-November, which may bring some colder temperatures to the region. It will be interesting to see if some East coast cities see their first freeze before parts of the Midwest.
