The climate is changing!

The climate is changing!
The climate is changing!
The climate is changing!

And its all YOUR FAULT!!!

Say the Chicken Littles of today.

Mostly for pride, prestige, fame, and funding.
And to promote potentially catastrophic policies.
All in the false pretense of “green” and “renewable” energy.
Endeavors that will enrich the Chicken Littles promoting them.
Ironically these policies are not likely to stop climate change.
But will instead impoverish and endanger most of us.
Wasting huge amounts of hard earned tax payer dollars.

And to top it all off …
The hidden Chicken Little motto:
Do as I say, not as I do.
Hypocrisy at its best.

Chicken Littles of the world are in a class of their own.
Not subject to the rules they espouse for the rest of us.
They say we must quit using fossil fuels.
But that is not what they do:
Flying in private jets. Living in huge walled mansions.
Driving expensive cars. Living lavish lifestyles.
All provided by fossil fuels.

Climate change is now blamed for almost everything bad.
Never mind digging for real causes that are ignored.

Consequently, “climate change” has become a religion.
We must have faith in the sacred climate models.
Never mind that they have not been validated.
The unfaithful are persecuted as “deniers”.

When will the gullible public learn?
When lies are told often enough.
They are perceived as truth.
Buyer beware.

How the climate models fare

The graph below provided by Clive Best compares global surface air temperature anomaly projections from a large number of climate model runs for different Representative Concentration Pathways (RCPs) for carbon dioxide versus two estimates of global surface air temperature anomalies based on actual temperature measurements from Cowtan and Way and the UK Hadley Climate Research Unit Temperatures (HadCRUT4.6).  Notice that the measurement based estimates are indicating global temperatures at the low end of the model projections.

Not at all alarming.

Actual climate model temperature projections

Another graph from Clive Best below shows direct climate model output of projected global average surface air temperatures, indicating a very wide range in temperatures that is hidden by using temperature anomalies in the graph above.  Another sign that the climate models are not representing the real world very well.

And if you think climate is changing now, take a look at how much climate has changed in the last 3 million years without any help from humans:

  1. For an amateur like me, can you explain to me why the NASA anomaly figure for 2018 is +.8 while your graph figure (updated 2019-02-07) appears lower than that? Thank you in advance.

    • Different sources of global temperature anomaly estimates use different reference period baselines for calculating the temperature anomalies. An anomaly for a given temperature at a given time is calculated by subtracting the average temperature for the reference baseline period. NASA GISS uses a reference baseline of 1951-1980 for their temperature anomaly calculations. I post the reference periods that I am using on all temperature anomaly graphs. See the Monthly Trends page for graphs of actual global average temperatures that have not been converted to anomalies:

  2. It is even worse than that. According to HadCRUT 4, the temperature rate of change has been on a long decline and it is now around zero. The planet has stopped warming and might cool somewhat over the next years.

    • Javier, I’ve been looking at the NCEP/NCAR Reanalysis 1 daily global mean surface air temperature anomalies and the running 365 day average is now down very close to where it was in early 2010 (will probably post about it soon). The reanalysis output in recent decades is probably better to use for comparison to global climate models than land and sea surface temperature composites like HadCRUT and other common indices like NCEI and GISS.
