Thumbnail image for NHPR Ruins Otherwise useful Article With Climate Bias

There’s an interesting article over at NHPR. The hook at WBUR is How New Hampshire’s Seacoast Communities Are Preparing For Climate Change. The actual article is titled N.H.’s Seacoast Prepares for a Rising Sea in Surprising Ways. With credit to the second title, there are some interesting “ideas” to address the problems of storm swell and rising water, […]

Percipitation Estimate for Hermine Through Monday

by Steve MacDonald September 2, 2016

Always subject to change but as of mid-week, this is the total precipitation forecast for Hermine through Monday night. The tight gradient means that a track farther out to sea would mean less rain and a track closer to the coast would mean much more rain. A shift east and we get less, west and those […]

Looking at temperatures for the past hundred plus years the number of 100 degree days recorded annually across the entire US has dropped from 5% in 1936 to about 1%. That’s a decline in average warmth. In order for there to be warming you’d want to have more warmer days not fewer. No, ninety degree days […]

Thumbnail image for El Nino Climate Story in Sunday’s Union Leader is Misleading

This morning’s Union Leader includes a story from the LA Times, “Report: El Niño could be most powerful on record.” It suggests that an important region used to measure the strength of the phenomenon is as warm as anyone has ever recorded. And it is. The problem is that data critical to such a comparison […]

Did you hear the one about the 1 in 1000 year rainfall in South Carolina last week? It was all over the news. The Carolinas got a lot of rain. The sort of rainfall you only get “but once every thousand years.” Lots of talk, speculation, and climate cultists had their own worries. But before […]

Remember The Media Coverage of Below Normal Temperatures in July?

Thumbnail image for Remember The Media Coverage of Below Normal Temperatures in July?

The media has many weapons. Among them “are such diverse elements as… fear, surprise, ruthless inefficiency, and a almost fanatical devotion to the narrative.” May the Pythons forgive me for the editorial license, but then this is a story about editorial license. It’s about the weather, dummy, or is that FOR the weather-dummy? Once respected […]

“Mediarologists” Are Coming

by Steve MacDonald November 9, 2014

Weatherbell’s Saturday summary is a great learning tool, even if you happen to prefer “Mediarology” over meteorology.  Hat tip to Joe Bastardi for the inspiration; I will henceforth be referring to the non-scientific, politically driven, global warming cash-hound sniffing, their-models-can’t-predict-crap, scare-mongering, left-wing man-is-responsible-punditry of the weather as  “Mediarology.” Not the study of media, but the […]

Want to know a secret?  The word ‘Change’ in Climate Change means they can change the meaning every time nature proves them wrong…which is often. More snow, colder winters, growing ice-caps, cool rainy summers in the central plains, fewer wildfires, expensive liberal-owned beach-front property still above water,  everything that contradicts all their modeling and scare-mongering […]

We all heard the horrible, but yet unsurprising and actually quite expected, news of the ghastly revision of the first quarter economic numbers. Originally they were estimated at a meager 0.1 percent growth in April, but the economy just couldn’t muster enough energy to even hold that number and instead shriveled. It contracted by 2.9%. […]

We are heading toward a record lack of hurricanes… is it due to Global Warming? The number of named storms is on pace to fall within the range several seasonal forecasts have projected. On average, however, the season should have seen its first hurricane by now, and none has emerged. Indeed, the first major hurricane, […]
