Bad Weather Proves Climate Change, Says WMO

GWPF Report: Current Global Warming Is ‘Not Outside The Range Of Natural Variations’

Mr Speaker, yesterday an act of terrorism tried to silence our democracy. But today we meet as normal – as generations have done before us, and as future generations will continue to do – to deliver a simple message: we are not afraid. And our resolve will never waiver in the face of terrorism. And we meet here, in the oldest of all Parliaments, because we know that democracy, and the values it entails, will always prevail. Those values – free speech, liberty, human rights and the rule of law – are embodied here in this place, but they are shared by free people around the world. A terrorist came to the place where people of all nationalities and cultures gather to celebrate what it means to be free. And he took out his rage indiscriminately against innocent men, women and children. Mr Speaker, this was an attack on free people everywhere – and on behalf of the British people, I would like to thank our friends and allies around the world who have made it clear that they stand with us at this time. –Prime Minister Theresa May, House of Commons, 23 March 2017

A UK-based climate policy group has put out an annual climate assessment  “exclusively on observations rather than climate models” to serve as a counterpoint to those put out by the United Nations and government agencies that warn of unabated global warming. The Global Warming Policy Foundation’s (GWPF) climate assessment, like the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), noted 2016 was likely the warmest year on record due to an incredibly strong El Niño warming event that boosted tropical ocean temperatures starting in 2015. --Michael Bastasch, The Daily Caller, 22 March 2017

The GWPF has published the world’s first State of the Climate survey based exclusively on observations rather than climate models. Compiled by Professor Ole Humlum, the new climate survey is in sharp contrast to the habitual alarmism of other reports that are mainly based on computer modelling and climate predictions. Here is a short video about the new report. --GWPF TV, 23 March 2017

From the “A bit of bad weather proves climate change” Dept. An unbelievably crass piece from the failed Independent (and doubtlessly the BBC and the rest of the dismal MSM): “There is “no room for doubt”. The astonishing weather experienced by the world last year and advances in climate science demonstrate conclusively that fossil fuel emissions are causing global warming – and something must be done about it.” The Independent’s readers are a pretty naive lot, but even some of them can see through this nonsense, judging by some of the comments. --Paul Homewood, Not A Lot Of People Know That, 22 March 2017

We have seen lots of claims about the temperature records for 2016 and 2015 proving dangerous man made warming.  At least one senator stated that in a confirmation hearing.  Now that HadSST3 data is complete through February 2017, let’s see how obvious is the ocean’s governing of global average temperatures. --Ron Clutz, Science Matters, 18 March 2017

Catastrophizing is not justified by the science or economics of climate change. The well-established scientific consensus that human activity is causing the climate to change does not extend to judgments about severity. The most comprehensive and often-cited efforts to synthesize the disparate range of projections — for instance, the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and the Obama administration’s estimate of the “Social Cost of Carbon” — consistently project real but manageable costs over the century to come. To be sure, more speculative worst-case scenarios abound. But humanity has no shortage of worst cases about which people succeed in remaining far calmer: from a global pandemic to financial collapse to any number of military crises. What, then, explains the prevalence of climate catastrophism? --Oren Cass, Foreign Affairs, 21 March 2017

New data collected by researchers at the University of Adelaide in Australia estimates the population number at nearly six million—almost four million higher than previous estimates. --Sarah Gibbens, National Geographic, 15 March 2017
