California heat lower than past extreme levels

“On June 17, 1859, Santa Barbara, California was so hot that no humans could be outside, and there was widespread destruction of animals and plants.  Fruit burned on one side and fell to the ground.” click here

Washington Post spreads misinformation on heat waves

Evaluate climate changes today in light of climate changes of the past

Save the people of the planet from the people who think they will save the planet

“Rossiter to Congress: “Extreme weather events such as cyclones, floods, droughts and tornadoes are not increasing in incidence or lives lost. Indeed, the global mortality from all weather-related natural disasters declined by 99 percent while the population trebled after 1920, thanks to improved economies and technologies. Food production and calorie consumption per capita continue to increase, thanks to the green revolution, increased CO2 fertilization and longer growing seasons. Fossil fuels contribute enormously to the production, safe storage and transport of food and thus to human nutrition.”click here (from WUWT)

The Chicago Tribune fails to do its homework

“The Chicago Tribune says that Rock River flooding is caused by “climate change” – and is “only going to get worse.” ” click here

Strong hurricanes not related to atmospheric CO2

“Will the intensity of hurricanes increase with climate change? Can this be detected today, as Levermann concludes so trivially? This is not the case, say researchers around Lory Trenary from George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia. They investigated climate models and re-analyses and found no connection with the drive by greenhouse gases, especially CO2.” click here

Extreme weather intensification not linked to rising CO2 emissions

“As a continuation of the IPCC’s observation (2013) that there has been no detectable trend in storm and cyclone intensification (or extreme weather in general) that can be clearly linked to rising anthropogenic CO2 emissions, a new paper documents the rapid decline in eddy kinetic (EKE) and mean available potential energy (MAPE) since the late 1970s. This undermines the popularized claims that human activity worsens extreme weather events.” click here
