Smashmatiticians prove weather is climate!!

Sometimes when you don’t feel like thinking about AGW extremist stupidity, and you find yourselves reading about some news article or another that makes your head want to explode, it’s good to have a blog. Our leftist news and science (yes they collaborate) has gone so far outside of reality that it is hard to imagine how people read this stuff. Well gee, the scientist said it, why would they say something if it weren’t perfectly reasonable.
So we’ve all heard that global warming will cause more extreme weather events. Technical folk realize that it is a sensible claim that we would see more variance with more energy sitting around. But would you expect the delta variance to outweigh the delta temperature so dramatically that with a half C of change we would experience large scale statistically separable cold events? Just briefly think about the concept in the current nearly immeasurably small warming levels we’ve experienced. Is there any possibility for a sane person to think that the planet would react to a tiny perturbation of half a degree C warming with violent cold weather? I have to say that I consider this one of the more extraordinary claims.
This is a link to the inspiring article of Climate Science™, read it carefully as it is full of counter-intuitive leftthink in the guise of science.
PARIS — Counter-intuitive but true, say scientists: a string of freezing European winters scattered over the last decade has been driven in large part by global warming.
The culprit, according to a new study, is the Arctic’s receding surface ice, which at current rates of decline could to disappear entirely during summer months by century’s end.
The mechanism uncovered triples the chances that future winters in Europe and north Asia will be similarly inclement, the study reports.
Of course a study of this sort can only be done with a black box model tweaked to show dσ/dt >> 1, but the crazy thing is that scientists then use that study in the context of a cold weather event, to prove it is warming outside.
Such assertions, counter scientists, mistakenly conflate the long-term patterns of climate with the short-term vagaries of weather, and ignore regional variation in climate change impacts.
New research, however, goes further, showing that global warming has actually contributed to Europe’s winter blues.
Global warming has been freezing Europe!! Wow, it would be interesting to see the statistical proof of that wouldn’t it!! You think paleo-temperatures are fun, to be able to statistically prove that global warming is the cause of cold winters, you would need to be an awfully good smashmatitician.
“Say the ocean is at zero degrees Celsius (32 degrees Fahrenheit),” said Stefan Rahmstorf, a climate scientist at the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research in Germany.
“That is a lot warmer than the overlying air in the polar area in winter, so you get a major heat flow heating up the atmosphere from below which you don’t have when it is covered by ice. That’s a massive change,” he told AFP in an interview.
The result, according to a modelling study published earlier this month the Journal of Geophysical Research, is a strong high-pressure system over the newly-exposed sea which brings cold polar air, swirling counter-clockwise, into Europe.
“Recent severe winters like last year’s or the one of 2005-2006 do not conflict with the global warming picture, but rather supplement it,” explained Vladimir Petoukhov, lead author of the study and a physicist at the Potsdam Institute.
Yes, yes, I see now. Very convincing gentlemen. The funny thing about the article is the way it ends. Disclaimers that maybe our model isn’t the cause and it really isn’t global warming but rather the cold winters are caused by changes in the gulf stream or even invoking the S word. In climate science though, we all understand from the start that the Sun does not affect climate!! I’m relatively certain they teach that in the first sentence of the first class.
So how would you sum up the weather is or is not climate meme.
What’s good for the goose is good for…… nope
Pot called the kettle.. naw
Don’t worry your pretty little heads, we know best, check please!…. There we go!
Good stuff guys… If someone has the paper, maybe we can find some more enlightening quotes within!
