Another paper shows no human influence on the climate . It’s beginning to look embarrassing for the climate religion fanatics.

https://arxiv.org/abs/1907.00165
:facepalm:

A study with no citations, and not yet published in any respectable scientific journal, or any journal anyway.
English is not my first language but I would say that abstract is badly written too.

You’ll latch onto anything that will confirm your preconceived narrative, no matter how flimsy and evidence-lacking the source. “And that paper is correct”....HAHAHA, your certainty is hilarious.

Yeah, love that new fangled 'mini ice age' in Europe - and let's just ignore the slew of "hottest month ever" reports. After all, Cipp has confused GoT with climate science. So, I wonder if he's been running up and down the streets handing out winter coats "prepare now - the mini ice age is at hand!"

Listen, Daddy. Teacher says, 'every time a car alarm bleeps, into heaven a demon sneaks.'

Again shoot the messenger? The facts speak for themselves. The whole conspiracy was dreamt up a few years ago so now the poor youth of the world have been so brainwashed into this nonsense they believe the world is in effect coming to the end so it’s ok to commit crimes to stop it. Meanwhile China and India ignore it in favour of boosting their economic activities.

Extreme weather is not proof of global warming. Don’t fall for that nonsense. The weather and climate are different things as clearly explained here

Richard Lindzen also makes the same points

Quit it, you can't prove something by quoting the dissenting voices. The industry has to pay somebody to spread misinformation.

China is actually not ignoring it. In China environmental measures in many fields are ahead of many European nations and certainly the US. They do stimulate the economy that way, that is true, they will certainly have the solar panel and electric car market cornered soon (as far as that is not already the case).

Norway is always promoting warmth as a good thing. (All major newspapers are tabloid)

Today they fight over who gets the highest temperature

I’ll trade :whistling: it’s been the least wintery winter ever. 5 years ago at this time I was wearing 3 layers of jumpers, pants and socks and had to stay wrapped up in blankets in bed all day. I’ve been going for daily walks for 3 weeks in this kind of weather. A couple of rainy days, and a few cold mornings but mostly clear blue skies (especially by midday) and around 20 C.

Today it’s a max of 27 :( It’s 23 now and it’s the first time I haven’t needed a jacket of some kind. It’s actually quite hot and I’m probably not gonna walk for as long today. No surprise the kiddie beach is packed. Pokémon Go is gonna suck in summer. Guess it’ll be really early mornings or evenings. I have a slight sunburn from the 20 degree weather so I’m worried about how I’m gonna go today.

Sadly it was not as big as first thought and therefore cannot have a cooling effect on the planet

Meanwhile in Japan they are opening another 35 clean coal power stations to add to the existing 100 because there have been no significant temperature changes for 30 years whilst we in Britain expect the lights to go out.

You might be trading for about the same thing... except I think it's far more humid on average in New England. We haven't had a really proper snow fall since the winter of 2015 when we were all 6 feet under. Last 2-3 years have been warmer and with less snow (barring the stupid polar vortex earlier this year, but that was only for 3 days).
Now the Amazon is ablaze and I fear that will have a compounding effect on climate change in the next decade. :down:

17 000 lightning strikes in 6 hours last night. The area is about 200km x 200km
And followed by chaotic rain falls, that stopped almost all commuting around our capital

One lightning even struck a children's school (with 750 pupils) a few minutes before the first class (when everyone was outside waiting). That could have gone a lot worse.

After an extremely warm (probably record) September, we've been having an average October, until just today when the temperature has plunged from a high in the 70s (20s) to probably just above freezing for the next several days. We could theoretically get snow tomorrow night, a rarity at this time in southern Wisconsin. And I'm having to be out and about doing medical & financial things when it's perfect to be in and reading or watching movies, sigh...

Yeah, but I'll take that over humidity any day. I haven't been outside in a few days, but I can feel it in the mornings before putting on the aircon.

I also have developed an issue with bright lights so even on a regular day going outside means I can't keep my eyes open without sunnies, and I can't even look outside right now.

Yeah. I'm the opposite... can't stand aridity and I live for humidity (to an extent). I get respiratory problems when it gets too dry (like it's bordering on here right now since I have to keep the heat cranked). Take care of your eyes... B) and keep wearing sunblock! (I burn really easily too, so I can sympathize. Good thing I hate the beach anyway, lol.)
