No, Jeanne Shaheen, it’s your Obamacare that is going to shorten NH Ski seasons

by Skip April 18, 2014

Steve has been all over the Federal Government’s Ambassador to NH, Jeanne Shaheen’s utterances that global warming was going to kill off NH’s ski industry (here, here, and here).  And this year was one of the best EVAH for the industry as a whole.  So once again, Jeanne is wrong.  Really wrong.  And she was […]

Data Points – an amalgam

by Skip April 18, 2014

Been real busy so playing catch up.  Here’s a few unconnected, disjoint factoids: Census says!  86.5 million workers are supporting 148 non-workers. Enough people riding in the wagon for you, Zandra Rice-Hawkins, Jeanne Shaheen, and President Obama? The average price for a kilowatthour (KWH) of electricity hit a March record of 13.5 cents, according data released […]

Here’s some of yer global warming right here…

by Skip April 16, 2014

Imagine my surprise when I went to put Mieka outside this morning: Yeah, snow.  Middle of April.  Temperature was 17 degrees when I got up and when I went to pick up the Youngest after work, the temp by the car’s thermometer was 30. Normal temps this time of year are supposed to be in […]

“No warming this millennium” – 158 months in

by Skip April 1, 2014

“HadCRUT4, the last of the five monthly global datasets to report its February value, shows the same sharp drop in global temperature over the month as the other datasets. Our dataset-of-datasets graph averages the monthly anomalies for the three terrestrial and two satellite temperature records. It shows there has still been no global warming this […]

The Shaman’s at the United Nations Intergovernmental Plunderers for Climate Cash (IPCC) have eyed the computerized goat-entrails yet-again and determined that the failure of sinners to repent will result in even greater global pain and suffering than all previous predictions combined, or something.  (Pick up your environmentally friendly ‘The end is Near” sandwich boards at […]

Update:  This is just a reminder to keep New Hampshire’s very own “scary conservative with a hidden agenda” in your thoughts. And to persuade you to consider wandering over to www.steynonline.com, home of entertaining edification, to help fight for free speech.  We need all the fighters we can get these days.  Too many are seeking […]

Cold? You betcha!

by Skip March 27, 2014

Now, I wait all summer for February as I do prefer the colder weather.  However, I have had it – enough! . Here in NH, it has been downright all winter long – it got cold and stayed cold.  ALL winter time.  I can’t remember the last time that we had single digit temps in the […]

The Pause

by Steve MacDonald March 14, 2014
Thumbnail image for The Pause

Global warming denier deniers–you still with me–are calling the last 17, going on 18 years of non warming, a pause.  The problem with this moniker is that prior to the 20 plus years of temperature increases the earth was essentially cooling for the 35 years prior.  That trend led experts to believe we were going […]

–Real Science To date, October-March temperatures are the coldest since 1899 – but they will rise some before the end of the month – and may pass 1912. 77% of the US has been below normal temperature since October 1.

Three Questions: For Anyone who Supports Obama, Man-Made Global Warming, or Abortion.

1) Does President Obama represent your values? 2) Is there anything that could disprove global warming and if so what? 3) If your mother had aborted you immediately after conception (or any point thereafter), you would have been denied every day from that day to this; how is that not “a life?”

Jeanne Shaheen Said Global Warming Would Affect Our Winter Tourism. She Was Right!

 UL The ski industry in New Hampshire contributed a record-breaking $1.15 billion to the state’s economy in the 2012-13 season, according to the Institute for New Hampshire Studies at Plymouth State University. And it’s only February. I wonder is Senator Shaheen would like to amend her prognostication from six years ago?

California Drought NOT Caused by Global Warming

The Green Goblins are out doing their chicken-little imitations about the drought in California.    They are blaming the mystical exhaled spirits.  The invisible Green gods that inhabit the sky. The gods are angry and they are punishing us by making the globe hotter, and it will keep getting hotter (even though global temperatures are still […]

But “Climate” Only Started 1000 Years Ago

by Steve MacDonald January 27, 2014

There is a longstanding prejudice within the progressive, liberal, Democrat cabal towards religion.  They love to sneer at the idea of intellectual backwater, bitter-clingers who quote the Bible.   “But the Bible says the world is only 4000 years old,’ and we know that’s not true.” And yet these are the same intellectually superior people who […]

Communism is The Answer – “It’s Settled Science!”

by Steve MacDonald January 17, 2014
Thumbnail image for Communism is The Answer – “It’s Settled Science!”

Global Warming has never been about warming.  It is a scheme to use “energy” and the environment to direct behavior toward a socialist system of central planning, even if that “system” is contrary to the stated objective of climate alarmism. If you need proof of that take a look at this. United Nations climate chief […]

Polar Vortex Could Be A Sign Of Global Cooling -Leading Scientist Predicts Equivalent of Maunder Minimum

by Steve MacDonald January 9, 2014
Thumbnail image for Polar Vortex Could Be A Sign Of Global Cooling -Leading Scientist Predicts Equivalent of Maunder Minimum

The “Maunder minimum” is a fancy-pants sciency phrase for a little ice age.  A little ice age is a long period of weird weather where it mostly just gets colder for longer over a series of consecutive decades.  These events are predicated on oscillations of total solar radiance, and solar or sunspot activity, which can […]

Faith In The “Non-Falsifiable Hypothesis” of Global Warming Leads to “Settled Science Gore-tex”

by Steve MacDonald January 8, 2014
Thumbnail image for Faith In The “Non-Falsifiable Hypothesis” of Global Warming Leads to “Settled Science Gore-tex”

Back in 2008 NH Democrat Jeanne Shaheen scared people with promises that Global Warming was real and that it would put an end to New Hampshire Winters–and our touristy-like winter wonderland of commerce.  It was settled science.  I heard that, didn’t you hear that? A few years later, after 15 years of flat or declining […]

Polar Vortex “Excuse” Makes Senator Jeanne Shaheen Look Like a Moron

Warming creates warming.   Warming creates cooling.  NH Democrat Timmy Horrigan informed us (in comments)  that Global Warming Theory predicts more snow (which will come as a surprise to Senator Jeanne Shaheen).  And now we’ve got this newly imagined polar vortex thing to explain the cold temperatures that none of those computer models from all those […]

Record LOW Temperatures, Too!

by Mike December 18, 2013

Can you say “Ice Age“? Prior to Skip’s piece on record snowfall amounts across the Continental USA, I had previously noted September temperatures in August, and had been watching the thermometer and mentally comparing with Ghosts of Christmases Past. I scanned prior averages and records for NH, and guestimated around 10 deg F lower than […]

Large Bovine Herds Responsible for Medieval Global Warming

Okay, that’s not true. Nobody’s making that claim , at least not yet. But I expect something just as ridiculous will spurt forth from the warm mongers to explain away the Swedish study that found that the Earth was warmer during the Roman and Medieval periods. It’s tough these days to be a warm-monger- sky-is-melting-climate-alarmist. […]

So, why the bust? “The 2013 Atlantic hurricane season looks set to go down as a big washout, marking the first time in 45 years that the strongest storm to form was just a minor Category 1 hurricane. There could still be a late surprise in the June 1-Nov. 30 season, since the cyclone that […]

The NIPCC Report on Climate – A Non Political Finding By People Not Looking For Government Handouts

by Steve MacDonald October 21, 2013

This would be the fourth report, but given that the IPCC has jumped another shark in its pursuit of “research” that explains its conclusions, we need to post this. The report, which cites thousands of peer-reviewed articles the United Nations-sponsored panel on climate change ignored, also found that “no empirical evidence exists to substantiate the claim […]

Was Al Gore Anywhere Near South Dakota Last Weekend?

Four people died.  An estimated 75,000 cattle were killed.  Records were broken.   Sounds like an environmental disaster. And it was only a few days ago.  You didn’t hear? One would think the death of 75,000 cows by upwards of five feet of snow might get some national attention, but as one blogger observed, it has […]

They’re almost laughable – socialists and global warmists

First on the Socialists – an observation from El Rushbo: Let me give you an interesting observation on William F. Buckley. It’s a quote, but it’s more an observation. Buckley pointed out that in the ’30s we were told we had to “collectivize the nation,” i.e., big government. Go socialist. We had to collectivize the […]

Michael Barone has a piece in the Washington Examiner whose thrust is to address the UN panels historic downgrading of past apocalyptic rhetoric regarding mans so-called impact on global climate.  We’ve apparently been given a 17 year waiver from the universe, something the ‘war’mists call a pause, a pause that conservatives note better explains the […]
