Raw Story: Unprecedented Scientists declare Global Climate Emergency
And it wasn't just Raw Story either! RT. And other lame stream lying media outlets of alleged good reputation were spewing the same bile.
hy·per·bo·lePay attention to the hysterical manipulative language use, the hyperbole- that is not science- it’s just perception management
noun: hyperbole; plural noun: hyperboles
exaggerated statements or claims not meant to be taken literally.
“environmental blogger Robert Scribble” Clearly this man is no environmental blogger since he has no apparent knowledge of the environment
“It’s the very picture of weather weirding” Weather weirding- Is weirding a real word?
‘“Like many extreme events resulting from human-forced climate change — this co-mingling of upper level airs from one Hemisphere with another is pretty fracking strange,” Uh, Yah!
Human forced climate change- rofl- When AGW fails. When human caused fails. The spin doctors change the spin to “human forced”- That’s a rebrand!
More nonsense from someone named Paul Beckwith appearing to bolster the claims of the unenvironmentalist Robert Scribbler.
“University of Ottawa climate scientist Paul Beckwith called the new behavior “unprecedented.”That's enough nonsense from Raw Story!
Did you know that "climate scientist" Paul Beckwith has a masters degree in laser optics? Here I would have thought perhaps he had a Doctorate in SPIN
People such as Robert Scribble and Paul Beckwith should stop spreading such big frackin' lies!
Thankfully a voice of rationality and reason!
Op Scientist @WxCoEnergy (@WeatherCompany @IBM). PhD in tropical meteorology from @UAlbany. A @BostonDotCom's top 40 Meteorologists to follow.
THIS IS NOT SOMETHING NEW. It's called Cross Equatorial Flow-NOT a result of climate change.
I was intrigued. What is this Cross Equatorial Flow?
Google Search: Scholar
Just a quick scan of those links indicate this is a regular occurence. All over the globe. Including one study that used 15 years of date from 1979 to 1993.
Hmmmmm...... lots of instances of Cross Equatorial Flow- Nothing new to see here
Just to drive my point home regarding the many, many hoaxes and lies perpetrated by the AGW cult:
Dr Roy Spencer
Paul Beckwith has a masters degree in laser optics, which he has somehow parlayed into being a “Climate System Scientist” to spread alarmism about the climate system.
But his post “Unprecedented, Jet Stream Crosses Equator” suggests he knows little of meteorology, let alone climate.
A “jet stream” in the usual sense of the word is caused by the thermal wind, which cannot exist at the equator because there is no Coriolis force. To the extent that there is cross-equator flow at jet stream levels, it is usually from air flowing out of deep convective rain systems. That outflow often enters the subtropical jet stream, which is part of the average Hadley Cell circulation.
There is frequently cross-equatorial flow at jet stream altitudes, and that flow can connect up with a subtropical jet stream. But it has always happened, and always will happen, with or without the help of humans. Sometimes the flows connect up with each other and make it look like a larger flow structure is causing the jet stream to flow from one hemisphere to the other, but it’s in no way unprecedented.
We’ve really only known about jet streams since around WWII…one of my professors, Reid Bryson, was one of the first to advise the U.S. military that bombers flying to Japan might encounter strong head winds. The idea that something we have been observing for only several decades on a routine basis (upper tropospheric winds in the tropics) would exhibit “unprecedented” behavior is rather silly.
I especially like this portion of Paul’s post:
“We must declare a global climate emergency. Please consider a donation to support my work..”
Nice touch, Mr. Beckwith.
How many times have I stated here the only green the phony environmentalists see is the green of money? As they fear monger. And prevaricate.
So many lies to challenge and so little time! Sigh
