That there were going to be two hurricanes in the Gulf of Mexico was a sign of Global-Warming End-Times. So what does this mean? Tropical Storm MARCO: Special Advisory Number 18 from 1:00 PM 24 August, 2020
Maximum sustained winds have dropped to 40 MPH. And so…
The Tropical Storm Warning and Storm Surge Warning for the U.S. Gulf Coast have been discontinued.
SUMMARY OF WATCHES AND WARNINGS IN EFFECT:
There are no coastal watches or warnings in effect.
Because for a weather system to BE a tropical storm, SUSTAINED winds have to be above 39 MPH, and the storm is weakening.
Aircraft and satellite derived wind data indicate that maximum sustained winds are near 40 mph (65 km/h) with higher gusts. Further weakening is expected, and Marco is forecast to become a tropical depression tonight and degenerate to a remnant low on Tuesday.
So what will the climate folks have to say? I’m sure that they were disappointed that this storm didn’t
- stay a hurricane, and
- cause widespread devastation.
The article is from June of 1989. U.N. Predicts Disaster if Global Warming Not Checked. This was before Global Warming morphed into Climate Change.
A senior U.N. environmental official says entire nations could be wiped off the face of the Earth by rising sea levels if the global warming trend is not reversed by the year 2000.
Coastal flooding and crop failures would create an exodus of ″eco- refugees,′ ′ threatening political chaos, said Noel Brown, director of the New York office of the U.N. Environment Program, or UNEP.
He said governments have a 10-year window of opportunity to solve the greenhouse effect before it goes beyond human control.
So either, it is beyond our control, and we should just start the party while we wait, or the geniuses that run the
Global Warming scam should admit that they are not able to predict the future. (Hat tip to Intellectual Froglegs.)
You are either able to predict the outcome of experiments or the behavior of nature. So what is it if there is no predictive value? Wrong Again: 50 Years of Failed Eco-pocalyptic Predictions.
Modern doomsayers have been predicting climate and environmental disaster since the 1960s. They continue to do so today.
None of the apocalyptic predictions with due dates as of today have come true.
A nice collection of images from newspapers about Global Cooling and then Global Warming, and whatever we have today. (Hat tip to 90 Miles From Tyranny.)
SiGraybeard has the rundown on an interesting article. The Climate Change Hoax is Worse Than You Thought.
The article is supported by a fairly large PDF, so although I will look at it eventually, that won’t happen for a while. But there seem to be some problems.
In my prior experience, climate modelers:
- did not know to distinguish between accuracy and precision.
- did not understand that … a ±15 C temperature uncertainty is not a physical temperature.
- confronted standard error propagation as a foreign concept.
- did not understand the significance or impact of a calibration experiment.
- did not understand the concept of instrumental or model resolution or that it has empirical limits
- did not understand physical error analysis at all.
I’ve said before that they didn’t seem to understand gauge reliability or repeatability and if you think you have a problem you can’t just “edit the data after the fact” to best support the conclusion you want to reach. You do in fact have to toss out the suspect data, and fix the gauge.
Anyway, it will be some time before I get to the source material…
This is the level of hysteria. It is weather people. Not “unheard of” just not usual for the past few years. It is just weather. Texas grid barely avoids outages as cold hits utilities – Yahoo Finance.
So, the Texas power grid was hit with high demand, for heating. Emergency measures were taken to avoid outages. And outages were avoided. This is News?
