MSNBC: We’re on the ‘frontier of climate disaster’

This is a great segue clip to bring you some interesting news on Climate Change that was published at the end of December. But first, here’s a clip of the loons at MSNBC today hyperventilating about how we’re on the ‘frontier of climate disaster’. Chris Hayes starts it by saying that climate change is no longer a ‘future abstraction’ but that we’re seeing it happen in the present and then Matthews joins in with a ‘frog in the pot’ analogy:

Now here’s the truth from the Met Office in the UK (UK’s National Weather Service), that global warming stopped in 1997. In other words, there’s been no significant increase in the world’s temperature since 1997. Somebody quick, alert MSNBC:

DAILY MAIL – Last year The Mail on Sunday reported a stunning fact: that global warming had ‘paused’ for 16 years. The Met Office’s own monthly figures showed there had been no statistically significant increase in the world’s temperature since 1997.

We were vilified. One Green website in the US said our report was ‘utter bilge’ that had to be ‘exposed and attacked’.

The Met Office issued a press release claiming it was misleading, before quietly admitting a few days later that it was true that the world had not got significantly warmer since 1997 after all. A Guardian columnist wondered how we could be ‘punished’.

But then last week, the rest of the media caught up with our report. On Tuesday, news finally broke of a revised Met Office ‘decadal forecast’, which not only acknowledges the pause, but predicts it will continue at least until 2017. It says world temperatures are likely to stay around 0.43 degrees above the long-term average – as by then they will have done for 20 years.

This is hugely significant. It amounts to an admission that earlier forecasts – which have dictated years of Government policy and will cost tens of billions of pounds – were wrong. They did not, the Met Office now accepts, take sufficient account of  ‘natural variability’ – the effects of phenomena such as ocean temperature cycles – which at least for now are counteracting greenhouse gas warming.

Surely the Met Office would trumpet this important news, as it has done when publishing warnings of imminent temperature rises. But there was no fanfare. Instead, it issued the revised forecast on the ‘research’ section of its website – on Christmas Eve. It only came to light when it was noticed by an eagle-eyed climate blogger, and then by the Global Warming Policy Foundation, the think-tank headed by Lord Lawson.

Then, rather than reporting the news objectively, Britain’s Green Establishment went into denial. Neither The Guardian nor The Independent bothered to report it in their paper editions, although The Independent did later run  an editorial saying that the new forecast was merely a trivial ‘tweak’. Instead, they luridly reported on the heatwave and raging bushfires in Australia.

One of the curious features of Green journalism is that if it  gets unusually cold, this will be dismissed as mere ‘weather’ of no significance, while a heatwave or violent storm will be seized on as a warning that catastrophic climate change is already here.


There’s even more on this at Newsbusters where they cite 1,000 scientists disputing that global warming is a man-made phenomenon.

    Frigid temps to hit coast to coast; MN set for -50 wind chill…

    Good Night !

    • I used to be stationed at Grand Forks AFB, North Dakota (right on the border with East Grand Forks, Minnesota) with the -50 degrees + 30mph winds, and I can vouch that everday, while I was working on the flightline, there was absolutely NO “warming” to speak of! LOL!

      • davienne

        i live in SD… we call that WINTER here…. we are at +4 degrees today, supposed to warm up to + 17….. it does this every year at this time… SHOCKER ???….NOT SO MUCH

        • I used to live in South Dakota…it was a picnic compared to North Dakota. You did realize where I typed NEGATIVE 50 degrees, right?!? SHOCKER???…NOT SO MUCH

          • davienne

            i drove for a co out of fargo for over 5 years… i know exactly how the winters are.. thats why i moved south… its a little warmer here… we still have windchill warnings, and minus 10 – -20 temps with – 50 windchill here too … last year we didnt start warming up till june.. had snow in may… but still, thats what we call winter…

            • It’s DEFINITELY nicer in South Dakota!!! LOL! I don’t know why, but even FARGO is much warmer than Grand Forks typically…we used to go to the bars in Fargo to warm up from the windchill in Grand Forks. Then again, maybe the alcohol had something to do with the warming up! 😀


              • davienne

                i used to load up out of simplot in grand forks..i would go from the cold outside into the warmer freezer… in other words … it was warmer in the coolers than it was outside…LOL

                • Yep! In the spring, we considered 30 degrees “T-Shirt weather”! LOL! Only two seasons in North Dakota: Winter and Mosquito seasons…

                • davienne

                  LOL… our 2 seasons are winter and road construction

                • I’ve heard that one too…Mosquito season is tied with Construction season!! LOL!

    • BlueGood

      Elizabeth Nickson’s book published in Oct. 2012 ~~ECO-FACISTS : How Radical Conservationists Are Destroying Our Natural Heritage~~` It is by far the scariest read I have encountered.

      I’ve read many books on the Holocaust, Ghengis Khan, WW !!, WW1 Orwells’ 1984 and many others and all combined were not as frightening as the facts & exposure of the Green Weenies accomplishments & future plans for our Planet.

      These weenies make Orwell’s “Big Brother” seem like a cuddly kitten in comparison to their Lock Step systematic process of regulating your life…..

      Please read it & spread the word…FAST….

    The devil is not in the details but in the lies about climate change. Methinks Satan is running the shows at this network and this is why we see the garbage which they spew forth and it not only pollutes but heats it. That’s good for them because when they get to hell they will be accustomed to the hot temps.

    There’s an old man who lives down the street in our neighborhood. Lost his wife a few years back. Perfectly harmless. Lives on Social Security. Eats breakfast in the morning, and drinks and sleeps the rest of the day.
    Curious thing about him, is that he is dead-on accurate about politics. He predicted Obama would be elected. He then predicted he would be elected a second time.

    I talk to him sometimes. He knows more about politics than most of us have forgotten.
    You never know where wisdom comes from.

    • Nukeman60

      Has he given any hint as to when Obama will abdicate the throne? That would be nice info to know.

      • white531

        No, he seems comfortable that Obama will complete his second term. He did say this however, “be careful what comes after him.”

        • Nukeman60

          Interesting point and one we should take heed of.

    • 1endtimes2020

      If more people would take time off their busy lives to think all day for a month, (which they can’t afford to), we would hear a lot of wisdom coming from all the observances.

  • Mike

    The White House talking points are already coming out to push their agenda. At least only three or four people watch that network.

  • Watchman74

    Let’s not forget about Cimate-gate. Climate Change is just a means to further leftists agendas.

  • Nukeman60

    It’s important where we take our temperature data to determine global warming or not. The ground data has been slowly moving to the urban areas has been increasing solely because those areas retain heat more. The satellite data has not agreed with it and says that temps have remained constant.

    When both the ground data and the satellite data match, then there is a consensus. Until then, trust that the Sun has a lot to do with our warming or cooling.

    I predict a warming trend about six weeks after groundhog day. Trust me.

    • 3seven77

      “Until then, trust that the Sun has a lot to do with our warming or cooling.”

      There you go with those common sense theories again…. 😀

      • Nukeman60

        It was just a guess, but I took a chance. 🙂

    • 1endtimes2020

      I trust God is in control of His creation. I’m sure He knew we would have billions of cars on the road, and millions of cows in India.

      • Nukeman60

        What amazes me is that the liberals worry about the localized warming that cities do (and yet they flock to them), while never even realizing that there are tons of ‘greenhouse gases’ spewing out of the deep ocean hydrocarbon vents that more than overshadow these cities full of smog.

        When I was in college, back in the 70’s, I did a paper on the hole in the ozone layer (this was when we ‘needed’ to eliminate aerosols from our lives or face destruction). They had discovered about that time that there was a hole above Antarctica and were fearful that it was expanding and ready to completely destroy the life-saving layer.

        Turns out, as usual, that they were wrong again. We know now that hole was placed in the right spot and is necessary. It expands and contracts to maintain the proper level of thickness in the ozone. Looks like God knew all along what he was doing. Imagine that.

        • 1endtimes2020

          That is excellent information Tahnk you for letting us all know.

  • theDUHgeneration

    In other news, now would be a great time to start a “green business” and get all kinds of Obama-Cash!

    It’s sad, but many will take advantage of the opportunity.

  • Nukeman60

    Matthews didn’t think up that ‘frog in the pot’ theory. He must have been the one who drew the short straw, when they were choosing who had to watch Glenn Beck, back when Glenn was on Fox. He must have liked that analogy, but he probably didn’t quite understand it.

  • RIGHT ON!!!


  • tinlizzieowner

    But didn’t Obama say he was going to ‘fix the world’ in his inauguration address?
    😉 😉

    • 1endtimes2020

      As far as I’m concerned, he’s still Resident Obama. He has overstayed his welcome, and sees his following diminishing before his own eyea.

      • Conniption Fitz

        Obama was never qualified according the US Constitution.

        The Congress, FBI and CIA ignored the fact that Obama was the alleged biological son and adoptive son of foreign nationals. It is likely that Obama had a double citizenship and went to college as an Indonesian foreign student. Obama is not a valid POTUS. That is a fact.

        Both Obama and Congress have continued to disregard our Constitution and laws without conscience or constraint.

        • 1endtimes2020

          You’re right about all of that. It’s ao surreal what is happening in America, and I suspect all over the western world. It’s like a bad dream or nightmare we have sometimes, and hope to wake up, and when we do, all is okay in our world. Not now, Not anymore. We’re in a fight, and we can only pray that we can see an end to this dysfunctional ‘leadership’ and the wrongheaded enthusiasm of the followers of evil, who all believe wrong is good. Mesmerized by this moment in time. It’s just incredible what is going on, and yet, there are people like you and me who are not fooled, despite the stealth agendas of the enemies of the social good. The first President to sanction sodomy with his approval of samesex marriage, to pretend to care about children, yet sanctions late term abortions, and even the killing of the survivirs of late term abortions. A real devil’s disciple and snake in the grass….unrelenting, with worse to come.
          Bilderbergs—I wonder if he is a member. They started a club of 300 in 1954, to equalize all countries in a One World governemnet. I heard George H. Bush say one time during his presidency of the virtues of a new world order. Maybe this is why his son George said Islam was one of the world’s great religions. That’s why so many leaders separate Islam from those they say “use Islam to commit terrorism”. which is a crock lie. Terrorists are selfish losers who are being paid by the oil revenues from Saudi Arabia. This is a statement from Canada former top security man, Richard Harris, who headed Canada’s version of the CIA. That explains why Obama doesn’t want Canada’s oil pipeline going down to America. That would cut off revenues to Saudi Arabia and their fundings.
          Google these two questions 1- what is the bilderberg organization?
          2= what presidents and prime ministers and countries that are Bilderberg members?
          You’ll be amazed at the answers. It could help put a lot of the events going on in the world in a better perspective.

  • MSNBC: We’re on the ‘frontier of climate disaster’……MSNBC did get it partially right…

    We are on the “frontier of a disaster” BUT its not from climate change… the “disaster” will come because we now have another four years of an incompetent President, that is determined to destroy what has made this country great. The media must be “giddy” over their power of helping re-elect this man.

    David Bellamy has described how the BBC “froze him out” when he dismissed global warming as “poppycock”.

  • 911Infidel

    First it was AGW, then Global Warming, now Climate Change. Yes liberal idiots, the climate does change. It ebbs and flows all by itself. Human beings don’t have a damn thing to do with it; anymore than they did in the Medieval warming period or the Little Ice Age. Or the Mauder or Dalton minimums.

    AGW isn’t about science. Its about control. Its about suckering governments to install more expensive sources of energy; screwing the customers, making the Goracle richer, while ignoring that big orb in the sky that gives us light and heat.

    Carbon makes up a tiny percentage of the greenhouse gasses in the atmosphere (0.038 %). The lionshare of which, is water Vapor.

    So why don’t you greenies just take your goddess Gaia and her high priestess Heidi (Om Om ) Cullen, and take a short walk off a long peer. Have the Goracle drive you there in his carbon-spewing private jet. M-kay?

    • sDee

      I read some interviews with the Australian scientist a while ago, who first determined that there was a global warming trend. He also some data that CO2 emission might affect it. That is what the Gore worshipers took and ran with. They conveniently left out the conclusions of his research, that the earth quickly adapts by producing more water (precipitation) to balance things back out.

      • 911Infidel

        Heinrik Svensmark proved one of the links between global cooling, global warming, and precipitation to sunspot activity. Other factors include volcanic activity such as Krakatoa and Mt Pinatubo, and the one that erupted during the Dalton minimum – Tamaro that produced the “summer that never was” in 1816. You don’t get heating after carbon increases its the just the opposite. Heating from the sun is what produces increases in carbon. You can see that effect in the early spring when winter transitions into spring. Green plant branches will cease to droop and begin to straighten up towards the sun because they are getting increasing life giving carbon that they need for photosynthesis.

        Other factors in weather change, include the ENSO, AO and PDO and the position of the jet stream. You can do your own long-range weather prediction accurately by just following these factors, along with sunspots.

        You can also see from weather history going back to before the 10th century…before the industrial age that weather, climate and temperature changes all on its own. Humans have nothing to do with it. It is God who commands the natural world. It is He who determines the time, place, circumstance and change of the seasons.

    Hussein is moving to phase two alright:

    Obama Prepares to Community-Organize America

    In his latest unprecedented move in American history, President Obama announced he is converting his campaign apparatus into a permanent in-your-face campaign aimed at furthering Obama’s divisive, radical politics.

    OfA is a less violent version of Mussolini’s black shirts and Hitler’s brown shirts, or of the government-supported goon squads that Venezuela’s Hugo Chavez and Cuba’s Castro brothers use to harass and intimidate their domestic opponents. OfA units brought muscle to the recent fight in Wisconsin over that state’s out-of-control government labor unions. OfA has bludgeoned Democrats that Obama deemed insufficiently left-wing, especially red-state congressional Democrats who had been wavering on the issue of Obamacare.

      The OFA is also a non-profit so it’s tax exempt even though it carries out and foments political ideologies, functions and objectives.

    • 1endtimes2020

      Good thinking. The wonderful thing about time is that nothing ever stays the same. This too, will pass. Maybe Obama will think he has the Republican party in the palm of his hand, and will find out the Republicans only gave him enough time to do enough of his dirty work to hang himself. Maybe, and hopefully. The answers begin today.

    – Islam is a Religion of Peace (if you don’t count 20,272 terrorist attacks since 9/11/01)
    – Homosexuality is healthy, happy and holy (if you don’t look at the Bible, Police and CDC statistics, clinical medicine, mental health, science research facts in evidence)
    – Obama/Democrat policies are good (if you don’t count the facts: millions on food stamps and out of work, cities in ruin, bank closures, businesses bankrupt – even those begun by Obama cronies after his election.)

    Political Correct Isn’t.

    We could use some global warming in North Michigan today. It’s freakin’ below zero all up in here!

    The theory of global warming is every bit as dumb as the theory of evolution. Lots of the same people who believe that one also seem to believe this one. They have been fooled twice. Shame on them. That’s what happens to fools. They are continuously fooled.

    At the Australian Open Tennis tournament last week, there was one day when it hit 106. Panic!!! Of course, news reporters interviewed scientists who said this was a sign of “climate change.” It was ONE day. I’ve watched the tournament every day, and the commentators are all talking about how “mild” the overall weather has been compared to previous years. It was in the 60s for a match I watched the other day. The media and scientists are silent about that, though.

  • 5 degrees here with a below 0 wind chill and no schools are open. Waiting for AlGore to shovel my driveway.

  • Still my favorite post over at Anthony Watts most excellent website:

    For ninety percent of the last million years, the normal state of the Earth’s climate has been an ice age.

    Interglacial periods have been between a few thousand years to over 30,000 years long. Right now, our current interglacial is already past the 14,000 year mark, according to some sources I’ve found (this used to be a LOT easier to find, but for some reason, Google is making it harder to dig it out). So a lot of folks expect it to start getting colder.
