Fear Porn Friday: Climate Change

The good news is: Arctic winters are a little less cold.
The bad news is: We’re all going to die!

Joe Bastardi acknowledges Arctic winters are a little less cold.

Joe thinks “water vapour” causes these slightly less cold Arctic winters.

GISS shows the Arctic has become a Global Warming hot spot.

GISS also shows Arctic warming occurs mainly in winter.

Re-aligning the GISS map provides an overview of the Arctic.

This shows warming in the now fractured lands of Ptolemy’s Frozen Zone.

In the Arctic the Ice Cliffs, Yedoma, and Permafrost are retreating.

They’ve been retreating for at least 200 years.

In other words:

The Impending Climate Catastrophe occurred hundreds of years ago.

Global warming is the long-term rise in the average temperature of the Earth’s climate system.

The largest human influence has been the emission of greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous oxide. Fossil fuel burning is the dominant source of these gases, with agricultural emissions and deforestation also playing significant roles.

Mother Nature is [still] slowly adjusting to the new equilibrium.

When Arctic ice recedes in summer then winter begins with a slightly larger water area that releases more water vapour that [in turn] produce more clouds that [in turn] reduce winter heat losses.

Neurotic Narcissists addicted to fear porn on this Friday the 13th can be frightened of the fact of life that: We’re all going to die!

For everyone else:

Joe Bastardi says “Enjoy the weather. It’s the only weather you’ve got.”

The same can be said for life.

    Water vapour as THE dominant factor….That’s interesting!

    Any military aviator, using Infra Red (IR) based electro-optic sighting systems and IR homing missiles knows that water vapour is the dominant obscurant at several bands of wavelengths in the short, medium and long wave IR. Which means that the IR sensors
    are designed to exploit the available ‘windows’ of wavelengths in which water vapour does not attenuate IR transmission from the target or object of interest.

    CO2, also has some bands of wavelengths in which attenuation (absorption) is pronounced, however does not have as many bands of wavelengths of absorption as water vapour does. Which would appear to indicate that water is the dominant factor here!

    I recall reading another write-up by Tim on similar lines.
