BS, and your post and, it attendent "like" show that when it comes to warming the real face of people is revealed. I made one satirical post and get attacked again and again by people who have this weird desire to make posts telling others what I have written, when I haven't. Your post, and those of a few others really shows you as rather nasty minded people when it comes to warming. Yet again I point out that I have not made a single statement about warming that could be described as "fact", and neither have I "denied" anything. Want to attack me, then think clearly, as you and the others show strong symtoms of religious fanatiscism. My one post has exposed this, as it was intended to, but I do not expect you or any of the others to see themselves, you never do.
What have I told anyone that you haven't written? Your post comparing climate deniers to holocaust deniers seemed a bit harsh to me but y'all are starting to remind me of young earth creationists who point to sea shells found in mountains as proof of Noah's flood. This is just my opinion and perhaps you are right that I too have some bias. I think there are very good reasons to get off fossil fuels and convert to clean renewable energy sources even without the global warming issue. The evidence for warming is, to my mind strong and, while I agree it is not conclusive, I agree with a post by Doug above that by the time it is conclusive it will be too late to do anything about it, It reminds me of all the debate in the 70's and 80's over CFC's and ozone depletion. No one wants to admit to destroying the environment if it will cost money to stop. And FYI, sarcasm doesn't really come across well in this medium

The statement about storms comes from the NOAA report. As far as the cycling of Greenland melts in 150 year cycles, if the last one happened in 1889 this one seems a quarter century early. There are many more examples of storm increasing

The gist of this link is that cat 4 and 5 hurricane worldwide have inreased but says that global warming has not been proved to be the cause and calls for more data and NOAA funding for further study. Obviously this is a complex issue but it would seem to me that although global warming hasn't been proved to cause the increase in major storms over the past century there does seem to be a correlation. I would propose an experiment. Suppose we convert to renewable energy sources, stop burning fossil fuels and wait a hundred years and judge the effects? We could always go back to burning fossil fuels then if no improvement is shown by this.

From 1910 to 1940 5 category 5 hurricanes were recorded in the Atlantic. In a similar time period 1983-2013 we see 12 category 5 hurricanes in the Atlantic



Yes correct but I was referring to globally

The period of 82-12 was greater in every category expect category 2.

Your experiment is not taking THC's into account and therefore wouldn't make much sense to do.


I have already made a comment on Webster paper and its errors. And actually your link agrees with comments I have made regarding Webster et all and nicely explain why you cannot use the paper to show increase in cat 4 and 5.

I recommend you reading your link again and you will see why there's a lot of scientists who don't believe that GW is more extreme hurricanes.

I believe you have taken this out of context.  Your editing implies a 97% loss of ice mass, a figure so preposterous as to be completely unbelievable.  Anyone who said there was a 97% loss of ice mass would be immediately taken apart by more climatologists than I can count.

So where did the 97% figure come from?  I can believe that a melting episode affected 97% of the ice surface.  But that's hardly cause for alarm, as these have happened before.

I suspect you have deliberately distorted the meaning of this phrase.  Arguing that it is not your doing - you got it from somebody else - won't cut the mustard.  If you repeat somebody else's mistake, then it is your mistake.

According to the way I read it it shows the claimed 80% increase was invalid but that some increase was shown. I agree that some scientists don't believe that GW is behind increasing storm severity and number and even some who don't believe GW should increase same. Clearly this is a complex issue and I am far from an expert, but consider this, the population of the earth exploded during the 20th century after having been relatively stable for many centuries. This was mainly, I believe due to energy derived from fossil fuels allowing better farming techniques and transportation of food over long distances to markets plus fertilizers derived from hydrocarbons. We are now stuck in a situation where we are dependent on fossil fuels to feed all these people. I don't know how much oil is left or how long it will last but I think it is clear that the supply is not infinite. We must develop alternate forms of energy before oil reserves are exhausted or, I believe mass starvation on unprecedented scales will result. So, as I said before there are many reasons other than GW to develop clean renewable energy. And as was stated before waiting for evidence for GW to be conclusive may be too late. None of that, of course does anything to prove the contention that storm severity and frequency are increasing. I got that from the NOAA report sited above. Where they got it or it's validity I'm not sure, but I have seen many charts and graphs showing seemingly contradictory trends. I'm not sure why data on this seems so hard to get consensus on. I mean not the cause but just the number of storms should be easy to find

But what if you look at data from around 1910-1940.

We had more storms in this period. And they were greater.
I used the Ft. Smith barometric record, which only goes to 1949, so I can't give you a direct answer about that.

However, there is a tree-ring record from Broken Bow, Oklahoma that shows tree-damaging ice storms in 1788, 1806 and 1809, followed by a 51-year gap.  Then there were severe storms in 1860, 1871, 1886, 1903, 1943, 1956, 1963, 1992 and 2001.  Only one of those storms was in the 1910-1940 range.  There are other chronologies which show additional storms.  There was one in 1910 that didn't hit the Broken Arrow site.  Also 1916, 1918 and 1938.  These are based on point-samples, which are accurate for the stand's location, but can't tell us much about the other side of the mountain, but I note that the same years keep occurring in different chronologies with only minor variations.

Before LF has a cow over the definition of "severe:"  A winter storm is severe if it produces a 30% reduction in ring thickness in at least 10% of the stand for at least two years following the storm.  That is a response to injury caused by top loss, branch damage or severe bending of the trunk.  The same patterns will be repeated with minor variations on nearby sites (<50 miles apart).

the natural cycle over the last 10,000 years has been shown to fluctuate by several degrees in as little as a century on a regular basis, 20th century warming is just 0.7 degrees, there is nothing unusual about the magnitude or the rate of change of 20th century warming, that is what the ipcc is not telling you,
What you aren't saying is what warming has been about 4 degrees in the Arctic and about 1.6 degrees in continental interiors.  The geographical divergenace of warming patterns is something new.  And it fits the carbon fingerprint.

furthermore the past correlates nicely with solar activity, so why does the ipcc pay virtually no attention to solar effects on climate.
I personally checked the temperature-solar cycle records since 1880.  The correlation accounted for 1.1% of total variation, compared to 86.6% for CO2.  So while the solar cycle does correlate with temps, saying that it does so "nicely" is a major stretch.

And that's why the IPCC doesn't pay much attention to solar cycles - they have very little effect!

Doug, the figure does come from a link I posted on the annual NOAA report. The wording in it may have been unclear as I am sure it was referring to a melt of 97% of the surface and not from a 97% of total ice as this would seem preposterous as you say. It was saying that the melt recorded was 4 times the average melt recorded between 1981 and 2010. Little Fish contends that this fits with a 150 year cycle of big melts in Greenland, the last being in 1889. The only thing I can find on this contention calls for more data

"We find that the total radiative forcing associated with solar cycles variations is about 5 to 7 times larger than just those associated with the TSI variations, thus implying the necessary existence of an amplification mechanism, though without pointing to which one."
http://www.sciencebi...imeterFinal.pdf

the ipcc and the climate modellers only consider solar TSI variations as the solar contribution to 20th century warming in their models, but a study of the 11 year solar cycle finds the solar radiative forcing is 6 times higher than the ipcc admit to. this equates to ~1 Watt/m2 (modelers typically use ~0.15 w/m2 for solar contribution)

"the correlation coefficients between the SST, Global and Atlantic OHC variations, and the
reconstructed solar flux are r = 0.83, 0.79, 0.86"

and what they don't explain they attribute to man made co2.
