Climate skeptic Marc Morano discusses the Trump administration's 'global warming' policy and the alleged 'scientists' march on DC. Air date: January 30, 2017. 'Tipping Point' with Liz Wheeler.
Morano: 'NASA scientists are activists scientists in charge of our federal temp data.'
NASA is 'juicing the system, they are running a campaign cause and they are leaving out this vital information that there statistics are essentially meaningless. The hottest year declaration is meaningless.'
Forecast for Sea Level Rise By 2100 Scaled Back from 6 feet to 4 feet
NYT: 'One of the authors of the new paper, Dr. Rahmstorf, had previously published estimates suggesting the sea could rise as much as five or six feet by 2100. But with the improved calculations from the new paper, his latest upper estimate is three to four feet.'
NYT: 'Scientists say the recent climate agreement negotiated in Paris is not remotely ambitious enough to forestall a significant melting of Greenland and Antarctica, though if fully implemented, it may slow the pace somewhat.'
From 80,000 to 12,000 years ago, when CO2 concentrations lingered near or below 200 ppm, many new or recent studies suggest that when directly comparing region to region, it was as much as 6°C warmer than today even during this ice age period. This has prompted some scientists to “exclude atmospheric pCO2 as a direct driver of SST [sea surface temperature] variations”.
Sean Sublette, a meteorologist at Climate Central, who pointed out that the 1960s through 2010s saw between one and three storms each decade before the June 1 start date on average. It might be tempting to ascribe this earlier season entirely to climate change warming the Atlantic. But technology also has a role to play, with more observations along the coast as well as satellites that can spot storms far out to sea.
“I would caution that we can’t just go, ‘hah, the planet’s warming, we’ve had to move the entire season!’” Sublette said. “I don’t think there’s solid ground for attribution of how much of one there is over the other. Weather folks can sit around and debate that for awhile.” Earlier storms don’t necessarily mean more harmful ones, either.
"Hotter long-term temperatures have already had a negative impact on the diet diversity of children all across the world. The researchers found that hotter temperatures, both long-term averages and short-term anomalies, were significantly correlated with low diet diversity in five of the six regions studied."
