Cold Outbreaks are Not Caused by Global Warming

By Dr. Jay Lehr and Tom Harris – Re-Blogged From WUWT

Global cooling – and global totalitarian socialism – are the catastrophes we should fear most

What do heat waves, floods, droughts, rising sea levels, forest fires, hurricanes, African wars, mass extinctions, disease outbreaks, and human and animal migrations from South America and the Middle East have in common?

According to climate activists, they are all caused by dangerous man-made global warming. And this, in turn, is supposedly caused by rising carbon dioxide (CO2) levels resulting from our use of fossil fuels.

They might as well add alien invasions to the list, because it is all nonsense. Indeed, the climate scare industry has achieved such a level of absurdity that, on February 1, journalist Andrew Revkin reported in a National Geographic article that, “Many stories in recent days highlighted studies concluding that global warming is boosting the odds of cold [weather] outbreaks.”

Jet Stream Carries Sahara Dust to Arctic

By Anthony Watts – Re-Blogged From WUWT

Polar jet circulation changes bring Sahara dust to Arctic, increasing temperatures, melting ice

Summary points

  • A new atmospheric mechanism by which dust travels from the Sahara Desert across the eastern side of the North Atlantic Ocean towards the Arctic has been discovered
  • The dust emission was generated by a Saharan cyclone that was triggered by the intrusion of a trough emanating from the polar jet
  • The poleward transport of warm dust was caused by a meandering polar jet stream
  • Approximately half of the warming in the Arctic is being attributed to increased moisture and heat fluxes transported to the region from lower latitudes

Hunger Stones and Tree Ring Evidence Suggests Solar Cycle Influence on Climate

By Francis Tucker Manns – Re-Blogged From WUWT

Abstract

Recent discovery of the relationship between the location of the North American Jet Stream and extreme weather is a breakthrough in the understanding of solar forced climate change.

Five episodes of extreme weather over a period of 282 years deduced from tree ring data show meandering of the North Atlantic Jet stream. It is fair to say that the summers of 2017 and 2018 qualify as a sixth event because of world-wide extreme weather in the northern hemisphere and also globally, resulting in flooding, wildfires and drought on every temperate continent. The monsoon has truly gone global.
