Global Warming is a Tornado Killer

From the NOAA Storm Prediction Center comes this inconvenient data that pretty much kills the “climate is making weather more severe” claim.

Get this – a record-low 759 tornadoes formed in the U.S. so far this year, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Storm Prediction Center (SPC). According to the SPC data, there were two fewer tornadoes than the previous annual record-low of 761.

Tornado activity has been unusually low in recent years which goes back 65 years to the early 1950s.

Globally, The Coolest September In The Last 10 Years.

Dr Roy Spencer:

The Version 6.0 global average lower tropospheric temperature (LT) anomaly for September, 2018 was +0.14 deg. C, down a little from +0.19 deg. C in August:

Dianne Feinstein has to be Defeated

deLeon Sign

I thought about writing a letter to Senator Dianne Feinstein explaining my dismay and anger with her performance this week, smearing a fine man and politically raping his family. But, it would just be trashed by a staff member along with some stale veggie pizza. Then it occurred to me elections matter according to a former President. So, let’s make the next election count, Dianne has to be defeated.

I have requested a Kevin de Leon yard sign for my front yard in Lincoln Hills. I am known in the neighborhood as conservative Republican, and there will be some buzz about a Democratic sign in my front yard. This will open the conversation for why I am so unhappy with Dianne Feinstein and why they should vote for Kevin de Leon.

Think about it for a moment, if enough angry Republican get behind de Leon then we will be rid of the political carbuncle Feinstein. We are going to end up with a Democrat Senator, we just need to make sure it is not Feinstein.

Your thoughts. Here is the link to order up a yard sign

Wet or Dry California Winter?

The California Weather Blog has some thoughts.

Summing it up: what does all this mean for California?

The NMME ensemble is suggesting modest El Nino conditions this winter in the tropical Pacific Ocean. (NCEP via
In short: ENSO certainly isn’t everything when it comes to California precipitation, but on the other hand particularly strong El Niño and La Niña events are quite likely to be consequential. Current seasonal projections for 2019 suggest a high likelihood of a weak to moderate El Niño event. In keeping with the above discussion, that unfortunately doesn’t offer much information regarding whether California is likely to experience a wet or dry winter (and this is largely reflected in seasonal precipitation forecasts, which are essentially suggesting equal odds of a wet or dry winter). It is worth noting that relatively warm conditions are quite likely to occur this winter throughout much of the American West; the global models appear to be in pretty good agreement on this front. These days, though, that’s not an especially surprising forecast: the world is a warmer place than it was when today’s “climate normals” were defined, and the odds are increasingly favoring warmer winters as the years go by.

While the claim it is getting warmer the maximum temperatures are declining not increasing. See this link for the decline in max temperatures.

Mother Nature Supports Trump Tariff War

“China’s Soybean Harvest Drops by 300,000 Tons Because of Early Frost … China will then buy U.S. soybeans, which begin harvesting in the fall.”

Well, it appears that anthropogenic global warming did not save China from an early frost.

Looks like Aspen also got an early frost. Aspen Times:

“The first killing frost on this ranch came September 15, nearly two weeks earlier than the first killing frost in 1935. It only nipped the potato crop.

Another failure for anthropogenic global warming.

Did I mention we are in a solar minimum!  Early frost will be coming to the Mid-Atlantic according to Joe Bastardi in about 10 days. Stay Tuned

Alarmist Claim Rebuttal [Edited]

[Edited to fix bad links]

In the attached document is a series of rebuttals of the most common climate alarmists’ claims such as those made in the recently released Fourth National Climate Assessment Report.2 T

The authors of these rebuttals are all recognized experts in the relevant scientific fields. The rebuttals demonstrate the falsity of EPA’s claims merely by citing the most credible empirical data on the topic.

For each alarmist claim, a summary of the relevant rebuttal is provided along with a link to the full text of the rebuttal, which includes the names and the credentials of the authors of each rebuttal.

Link to Over View is HERE.

Claims rebutted include:

  • Claim: Heat Waves are increasing at an alarming rate and heat kills.
  • Claim: Global warming is causing more hurricanes and stronger hurricanes.
  • Claim: Global warming is causing more and stronger tornadoes.
  • Claim: Global warming is increasing the magnitude and frequency of droughts and floods.
  • Claim: Global Warming has increased U.S. Wildfires.
  • Claim: Global warming is causing snow to disappear.
  • Claim: Global warming is resulting in rising sea levels as seen in both tide gauge and satellite technology.
  • Claim: Arctic, Antarctic and Greenland ice loss is accelerating due to global warming.
  • Claim: Rising atmospheric CO2 concentrations are causing ocean acidification, which is catastrophically harming marine life.
  • Claim: Carbon pollution is a health hazard.


The well-documented invalidation of the “three lines of evidence” upon which EPA attributes global warming to human-caused CO2 emissions breaks the causal link between such emissions and global warming.

This in turn necessarily breaks the causal chain between CO2 emissions and the alleged knock-on effects of global warmings, such as loss of Arctic ice, increased sea level, and increased heat waves, floods, droughts, hurricanes, tornadoes, etc. These alleged downstream effects are constantly cited to whip up alarm and create demands for ever tighter CO2 regulation. EPA explicitly relied on predicted increases in such events to justify the Endangerment Finding. But as shown above, there is no evidence to support such claims and copious empirical evidence that refutes them.

H/T to ICECAP for publishing this research.  Use these documents to refute the claims of global warmers co-workers, family, and friends.  They can also be used at political town hall meeting to inform political leaders and policymakers. I am sending copies of the rebuttal to my federal and state representatives.
