Skip to comments.Scandinavia-gate --IPCC fails.. temperature today roughly similar to that of the 1930’s

Yet again, we have a situation where the data doesnt match the full-gloss coloured graphs produced by the PR agency for global warming called the IPCC.
Frank Lansner and Nicolai Skjoldby have started a new blog Hide The Decline, and posted that Scandinavian data shows clearly that temperatures got markedly cooler from 1950-1970, before they began rising again, and even after the warming, they only appear to be back where they were. But, all the IPCC graphs minimize the cooling. It would be reasonable to conclude from the data that the temperature today in Scandinavia is roughly similar to that of the 1930s. But, youd never know this from looking at the IPCC graphs.
The IPCC needs to come forward and explain why its graphs are so different.
There is no hockey stick warming here. There is no unprecedented heat, and there is no good correlation with the rise of carbon dioxide either. Sure, this is just one region, not the globe, but this is yet another example of how the IPCC has not presented an honest assessment of the information.
Corroborating this information, sea surface temperatures around Scandinavia dont show any rise. Indeed, the water appears to be cooler than it was 60-80 years ago. Where could that heat be hiding?

Go the Danes! What a great site. Go to S in the A-Z and read this timely article by Australian Peter Sawyer on the vital importance of terminology in what is essentially a social and cultural war. Being a linguist myself this is something I am acutely aware of and Peter makes a very good case:
Quote: This is not, and never was, a scientific debate over climate change, between consensus opinion and deniers. It is a no-holds-barred, to-the-death battle against global social engineering, being waged between realists on one side, and programmed, brainwashed cultists on the other. Accept it, get used to it, and get on with it.
Man-made global warming. Cultists. Realists. These are the correct terms for engagement with the enemy. In future use those terms, and only those terms. You people can never hope to win what is essentially a war of words if you cant even speak the language.
I couldnt agree more.
From the same article:
Go have a look at the material at http://www.teachingclimatechange.com.au . This is the preferred and recommended material for science lessons about climate change in Australian junior high schools today.
If you think any of this has anything to do with science have a read of Module 5 the ethics of climate change. Go to the class exercises at the end then come back here and explain to me what on earth viewing and then discussing the moral issues raised in the film Erin Brokovich has to do with the science of climate change, global warming, or anything else for that matter.
See for yourselves, it is absolutely breathtaking. The site is the creation of The Australia Institute, the founder of which is none other than . (drum roll) Public Intellectual extraordinaire Professor Clive Hamilton, who was also until recently its Executive Director.
This doesnt surprise me, however, as Hamilton is also the co-author of the book Affluenza, which my 16-year old son is currently having to read as part of the Year 12 (final high school year, for our overseas visitors) English curriculum. This book is in essence an ill-disguised political manifesto for anti-capitalism, anti-growth, anti-consumption, and pro social justice and green, minimalist lifestyle.
Michael attends a private, nominally Christian school, and still we get lumbered with this sort of dangerous c**p.
Thank God for Mark Lopez and The Little Black Schoolbook (google it and see ) I feel sorry for all the kids who dont know of this excellent little antidote to educational indoctrination.
I saw in the Australian,..that Rudd is dipping in the polls down there....anything to do with this Global Warming Scandal?
Something is going on!
HA! And the 'stimulous package' included a rebate on home roof insulation, which, because they wanted to spend the money as quickly as possible, has resulted in numerous house-fires and the deaths of a number of householders and installers from electrocution, because the foil insulation material was incorrectly installed...foil insulation has now been banned...
LOL! It's not going at all well for them...there are calls for the resignation of Peter Garrett...
Common comment: What is the government doing in the home insulation business anyway?
And so did Utah.
:’) Thanks Ernest.
In Pakistan we captured the top Taliban...Karachi...pinged you to multiple threads..
