The ones you've heard about over and over and over again and that I am not going to repeat to you.
Duke Whistleblower Gets More Than $33 Million In Research Fraud Settlement
Seems as if people doing fraudulent science get caught.
And... by other scientists not by anti-science zealots.
I'd like to see a comparison of the number of scientists at Duke doing research on the lung function of mice to the number, worldwide, doing climate research.
Alaska, in a trough of the Rossby waves bringing record snow to the US midwest, hits record 50F
Alaska had unusually high temperatures on Saturday, with record-tying temperature of 50 degrees at Anchorage International Airport, the National Weather Service said. This is the 18th straight day of seeing temperatures above 40 degrees, CBS Anchorage affiliate KDKA reports.
March had seven record-high temperatures at Anchorage International Airport, the National Weather Service said.
As of 10 a.m., Anchorage ended 102 consecutive days with snow on the ground, the National Weather Service said. If this is the end of snow for the season, it will the fourth earliest meltout on record. The earliest meltout was March 22, 2016.
The warmth is all part of a rapid, long-term trend in Alaska, CBSN contributing meteorologist Jeff Berardelli reported. In the past 50 years, the city of Barrow on the northern tip of Alaska has seen an 11-degree spike in its average yearly temperature. By comparison, the average global rise in temperature since the late 1800s has been about 2 degrees.
Anchorage reaches 50 degrees amid record warmth for Alaska
If Alaska was in the midst of a cold streak, you would be telling us that it's only regional. Care to show us that the temp readings today are the same as in the past? Thermometers in the past in an open field, today on top of a black tar roof?
This is of course the norm. Take some data from today compare it to 100 years ago and pretend it's valid. Apples and oranges.
Same old story, spring snow in the northern hemisphere is lessening. Why only mention spring snow? Because fall and winter snow has been increasing.
Where have you gotten the idea that a good way to win an argument is to pretend that you know what your opponent will say? It's not.
I am pointing out that the rough winter in the US midwest is NOT the result of global cooling but Rossby Waves in the Jet Stream (aka as polar vortex). While cold Arctic air is drawn south in the Midwest, warm tropical air is drawn up from the western Pacific basin to British Columbia, Alaska and the Arctic. The mixed movement results in NO net change in global temperature. However, the cause of Rossby Waves is a reduction in the difference between equatorial and polar temperatures, something that has happened for several years now as the poles have warmed much faster than the rest of the planet.
