Think winters are getting colder? Blame Arctic warming and, yes, the polar vortex

There is growing scientific support for one of the most provocative and counterintuitive ideas in climate change research, which holds that rapid Arctic warming may be causing colder winters across large swaths of the Northern Hemisphere.

A new study, to be published in the journal Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society, found that a weakening polar vortex, potentially set in motion by the rapidly warming and melting Arctic, has become more common during the past four decades. This results in colder winters across large regions of Europe and Russia, but also occasionally in the U.S. as well.

The study is the first to show that changes in winds in the stratosphere substantially contributed to a mysterious winter cooling trend in northern Europe and Asia, including a region already known for being frigid: Siberia.

Since they can't explain the cold temperatures any other way, here they are saying it's happening because of global warming of all things. And they wonder why people aren't believing them anymore.

It doesn't concern me at all. I was just pointing out that you two were being idiots. Again. But that has quickly become redundant.

idiots about what? not bleeding all over the place about a dead crocodile?

 

to me sad is that poor irradiated coelacanth in monster on the campus.

Calls to punish skeptics rise with links to climate change, hurricanes

Calls to punish global warming skepticism as a criminal offense have surged in the aftermath of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, but it hasn’t discouraged climate scientists like Judith Curry.

 

A retired Georgia Tech professor, she argued on her Climate Etc. website that Irma, which hit Florida as a Category 4 hurricane on Saturday, was fueled in large part by “very weak” wind shear and that the hurricane intensified despite Atlantic Ocean temperatures that weren’t unusually warm.

 

That is the kind of talk that could get policymakers who heed her research hauled before the justice system, if some of those in the climate change movement have their way.

 

“Climate change denial should be a crime,” declared the Sept. 1 headline in the Outline. Mark Hertsgaard argued in a Sept. 7 article in the Nation, titled “Climate Denialism Is Literally Killing Us,” that “murder is murder” and “we should punish it as such.”

 

The suggestion that those who run afoul of the climate change consensus, in particular government officials, should face charges comes with temperatures flaring over the link between hurricanes and greenhouse gas emissions.

*********************************************************

Some actually want to throw people in prison who question this global warming scam, that's how desperate they've become.

Yep, another example of the war on Freedom of thought, freedom of speech.  That's how the line of thinking in  that article leads to totalitarianism.

Bernie Sanders, Barack Obama have new spider species named in their honor

Scientists bestowed an honor to Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, former first lady Michelle Obama and former President Barack Obama.

 

Researchers and students at the University of Vermont named 15 new species of smiley-faced spiders and drew inspiration from the Obamas, Sanders, actor Leonardo DiCaprio, British naturalist David Attenborough and late singer David Bowie, the Daily News reported.

 

“In naming these spiders [spintharus davidattenboroughi, S. barackobamai, S. michelleobamaae, and  berniesandersi as well as S. davidbowiei and S. leonardodicaprioi] the students and I wanted to honor people who stood up for both human rights and warned about climate change — leaders and artists who promoted sensible approaches for a better world,” Ingi Agnarsson, a professor at the University of Vermont, told Sci-News.

 

This is not the first species named after former President Obama, but his tenth, The Washington Post reported. Bowie has another spider, the Heteropoda davidbowie, named after him, and Attenborough has many species named in his honor.

*****************************************************************

Spiders prey off of other insects, that's an honor?

NASA is teaming up with Russia to put a new space station near the moon. Here's why.

At the International Aeronautics Congress in Adelaide, Australia, representatives of NASA and the Russian space agency Roscosmos announced that they had signed an agreement to work together on venturing into deep space, with the first conceptual goal being a deep space gateway. In plain language, that means we're building a space station somewhere near the moon.

 

Building on the success of the International Space Station, the plan is to build something that could act as a waypoint for trips to the lunar surface, or even to more distant locales like Mars. And the hope is that it could be built as soon as the 2020’s.

 

"While the deep space gateway is still in concept formulation, NASA is pleased to see growing international interest in moving into cislunar space as the next step for advancing human space exploration," NASA's acting administrator Robert Lightfoot said in a statement. "Statements such as this one signed with Roscosmos show the gateway concept as an enabler to the kind of exploration architecture that is affordable and sustainable."

*********************************************

This agreement sounds like Russian collusion, where are all the Democrats with their conspiracy theories?

And today's lesson for our resident Stupid Scientist: spiders aren't insects.

 

Here's an article from Kidzone.com, so you should be able to follow along. Maybe.

 

http://www.kidzone.ws/lw/spiders/facts01.htm

 

To me the terminology doesn't matter, they're all bugs and are  treated accordingly whether if it's the 6, 8 or the multilegged variety.

 

Just die.

Science Underestimated Livestock Impact on Global Warming

Scientists have underestimated just how much livestock **** and gas have contributed to global warming, a new study contends.

In the study posted Friday in the journal Carbon Balance and Management, researchers from the Department of Agriculture, the Joint Global Change Research Institute and the Department of Energy discovered previous estimates of methane emissions from livestock were off by more than 10 percent.

 

Led by USDA plant physiologist Julie Wolf, the researchers looked at the data underpinning an old estimate of the effects of methane, realizing some dated back decades — and didn't take into account changes in land and animal use.

 

The figures that served as a basis for the 2006 Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change were off by 11 percent, the researchers determined.

***************************************************

It's hard to believe that people in our government are wasting their time on this global warming nonsense. It reeks badly.

New Giant Rat Species In Solomon Islands Is Four Times The Size Of Regular Rats

 

At 19-inches-long, the new giant rat species recently discovered on the Solomon Islands is an impressive physical specimen when compared to its fellow rodents. It also happens to be the first new rat species discovered in the area in about eight decades.

As noted by BBC News, the Solomons are located in the Pacific Ocean, about 1,100 miles (1,800 kilometers) off the Australian coast. Due to the fact that the islands are biologically isolated, the Solomons are also home to several mammals that cannot be found in other parts of the world, including the recently-discovered rat species. But the new giant rat is also interesting because it’s a key part of Solomon Islands folklore, apart from being about four times larger than the average rodent.

Speaking to BBC News, Tyrone Lavery, a fellow at Chicago’s Field Museum and Australia’s Queensland Museum, related how he had discovered the Vangunu giant rat, which is also known by the scientific name Uromys vika. He had been searching for the animal since 2010, but had failed to spot any evidence of the giant rat in repeated trips to the Solomons.

NASA astronaut to bike across Amazon in climate change film

NASA astronaut Chris Cassidy is keeping his exploration impulses down-to-earth, biking 600 miles across the Amazon to raise awareness about climate change and record its effects.

 

Cassidy tells WCSH-TV in Maine, where he grew up, that the world is affected by every action humans take. He is traversing the South American jungle with a team of environmental scientists as part of a documentary.

 

The Amazon is vital to understanding climate change on a global scale. Scientists say as deforestation destroys more of the massive jungle, there’s less vegetation to absorb carbon. Greenhouse gases that would normally be absorbed are released directly into the atmosphere instead.

************************************

He should get some real brownie points back at NASA for showing such concern about global warming. Hopefully nobody brings up all the pollution their rocket launches do for the atmosphere.

Just watched a new episode of "Mysteries of The Missing - The Roanoke Colony"  saying the same thing stated back in 1998 that a drought, worst in 800 years help to do in the Roanoke Colony.  Alarmist trying to convince us this is all so new.

Telescope project still faces fight from Hawaiian opponents

HONOLULU  -One of Hawaii's most divisive issues is centered on a largely barren, wintry mountain — its peak the highest point in the state — accessible via vehicles with four-wheel drive that can navigate a steep gravel road with sharp switchbacks. Breathing can be difficult up there at an elevation of nearly 14,000 feet (4,267 meters).

 

The $1.4 billion Thirty Meter Telescope project on Thursday won key state approval to join other telescopes atop the dormant volcano, but passionate protesters vowed to continue fighting construction on land that's sacred to Native Hawaiians.

 

Their willingness to endure frigid nights camped on the mountain and to be arrested proved successful in blocking construction in the past.

 

"For the Hawaiian people, I have a message: This is our time to rise as a people," said Kahookahi Kanuha, a protest leader. "This is our time to take back all of the things that we know are ours. All the things that were illegally taken from us."

******************************************

I can't believe they are going to build a telescope on sacred lands in Hawaii without the consent of the native Hawaiians. Where are all the politically correct "scientists" when you need them.

"Is Global Warming Causing More Shark Attacks?"

Summer is a time for endless beach days, building of sand castles, and, apparently this year, the rise of shark attacks. North Carolina has seen six shark attacks in just over the course of one month and already the media is attempting to demonstrate a correlation between unusually high amounts of shark attacks to global warming.

National Geographic reported on five different factors that may be contributing to the influx of shark attacks over the past month, focusing on the topic of global warming. The news outlet claimed that as: "warming is expected to increase, it will likely bring more sharks farther north and entice more people to get into the water, which will lead to more bites."

 

This seems to be true as the shark attacks that occurred in North Carolina happened when the water reached about 80 degrees Fahrenheit (27 Celsius) and the "warmer weather has brought more individuals to state beaches and entices them to take dip and cool off.

 

A total of 47 shark attacks have occurred in the U.S., with two of them being fatal. The states with the highest number of shark attacks last year, according to the International Shark Attack File, are as follows: Florida with twenty-three attacks, Hawaii with thirteen, and South Carolina with six. California, North Carolina, Texas, Oregon and Alabama each reported one shark attack.

********************************************************

We were taught that sharks are friendly and peaceful creatures, and now they are upset over global warming?
