We are going to have to work together without partisan politics or partisan religion. This is about saving our buts. This is not about black, or white, red or yellow it is about truth, justice, and the American way. It is about life, liberty and pursuit of happiness. America became great because of these great concepts laid down by our forefathers. Without them we will revert back to the Dark Ages.

Alaska got colder

Bogus Global Warming
The multinational global climate change
meetings are not based on fact. Its all about "societal manipulation" to
make you live in a smaller house, drive a smaller car or bicycle,
change your diet, reduce your standard of living, control the number of children you will have and reduce world populations so they enslave you more.
Al Gore and Bill Clinton made millions selling phoney carbon credits to
big corporations. We are at solar maximum so we can expect a slight global warming. When the sun cools down it will get colder and we will have trouble growing food. Scientists are being paid to spread this
disinformation and I am irate about all the dis-ingenuousness,
majority of Alaska is getting colder and has been since 2000, according to a
study by researchers with the Geophysical Institute at the University of Alaska
Fairbanks. But the authors stop short of saying the lower temperatures
contradict that idea that the earth, and Alaska in particular, is warming.
Instead, they conclude that the findings show a temporary variation.
with the Geophysical Institute's Alaska Climate Research Center looked at
temperatures recorded at 20 "first-order meteorological stations" in
Alaska from 2000 to 2010. The stations were spread from Annette in Southeast to
Barrow on the Arctic Ocean to Cold Bay at the southwest tip of the Alaska
Peninsula. All are operated by professional meteorologists with the National
Weather Service, use similar or identical equipment and follow uniform
pointed to a cooling trend, except Barrow.
The mean cooling
for the average of all 20 stations was 2.34 degrees Fahrenheit. The chilling trend
was most pronounced in the Bering Sea region, with King Salmon recording a drop
of 4.42 degrees in the first decade of the new century.
average went down by 2.7 degrees over the 10 years, Fairbanks lost about 1.8
degrees and Southeast stations dropped by a degree or less.
A map in the
report traces a line across the top of Alaska, starting at Point Hope and
generally running across the crest of the Brooks Mountain Range to Canada. All
portions of the state south of that line recorded colder temperatures and all
places north recorded warmer.
looked into sunspot activity and determined that it was not related to the
trend. They did find a correlation with the Pacific Decadal Oscillation, or
PDO, a shift in warm waters from the eastern to the western side of the Pacific
Ocean not unlike the El Nino warming pattern. But while El Nino shifts over
months, the PDO moves much more slowly, staying put for years or decades.
previously taken part in research that showed that a long warming period in
Alaska, starting in 1977, was influenced by the PDO.
The PDO affects
the ongoing low pressure system -- or "semi-permanent cyclone" -- in
the Aleutians. In the present configuration, the PDO is causing the Aleutian
Low to weaken. That means decreased wind speeds, resulting in less warm air
from south of the Aleutians mixing with colder air in the Bering Sea, which
leads to chillier temperatures on the west coast of the state.
The Arctic Ocean
coast, far from the Aleutians, is not significantly affected by this
phenomenon. Barrow showed an increase of 3.04 degrees over the decade, which
the authors called substantial.
The report notes
previous cooling periods, including a span of some 30 years that began in the
1940s, and says it is too early to decide whether the widespread Alaska cooling
trend "is a climatic shift" or merely a blip. Its summary reads:
"The long term observed warming of Alaska of about twice the global value.
. . . is sometimes temporarily modified or even reversed by natural decadal
acknowledge, however, that the overall statewide drop of 2.34 degrees is a lot
for one decade.
