'Per the empirical measurement evidence published by NASA, the last 15 years of temperature change is not much different than earlier, pre-modern climate change.'
'When examining the moving 15-year temperature changes over the last two decades, the NASA research indicates (despite the gigantic modern human CO2 emissions) that pre-1950 global temperature changes were greater.'
Chicago Sun Times: 'Global warming threatens Chicago tourism'
'It is happening now and affecting us today...
Unexpectedly cold temperatures, like snow in April and 60 degrees in July, leave out of town guests unprepared to spend much time outdoors exploring Chicago.a wet, cool July...
The long, extreme cold further into the spring causes a drop in sales for group tour business and private events in the early part of the season as people are not yet ready to commit to outdoors activities. A colder Lake Michigan has resulted in fog blocking visibility for sightseeing...
Climate change has brought Chicago unpredictable and increasingly extreme weather.'
'His super PAC, NextGen Climate Action, has raised just $1.2 million from other donors toward that goal, according to still-unreleased figures that his aides shared with POLITICO...So far, the only really big donor to the Steyer cause is Steyer himself. The numbers show just how hard it may be for Steyer to persuade rich liberals to spend their millions on climate change while voters focus on the economy, immigration and Obamacare.'
'How bad can it be? After all, Tom Steyer has managed to rent out the Senate in March, forcing Democrats into an embarrassing all-nighter to protest a lack of action on climate change in a chamber where they control the agenda.'
[Climate Depot Note: According to tide gauges, Sea Level is rising LESS than the thickness of one nickel (1.95 mm thick) per year or about the thickness of one penny (1.52 mm thick) a year. According to satellite info it is rising slightly more than two pennies a year (3.04 mm)]
By Klaus-Eckart pulse: 'Numerous evaluations of coastal-level measurements over 200 years, and more recently by gravity measurements of the GRACE satellites demonstrate again and again a sea rise of about 1.6 mm / yr. (Note: A U.S. penny is 1.52 mm thick) In contrast, the published since 1992 altimeter measurements with the satellite systems TOPEX / POSEIDON / JASON are twice as high values of 3.2 mm / yr. (Slightly more than the thickness of two pennies 3.04mm) The significant discrepancy is still unclear. However, it agree after all the trends match: The sea-rise is linear for at least 100 years, there is no acceleration of the increase. A signal due to anthropogenic CO2 (AGW) is nowhere visible.'
'After working on global warming for the last 20 plus years, what do we know about it now?" he rhetorically asked his audience. "The longer you go [into the research] you get more questions than you get answers. So, what do we really know about it? Almost nothing.'
