Hurricane Michael Was Not the Third-Strongest Anything

What do you do when you need an extreme weather event – any extreme weather event – to prove that Donald Trump has got it wrong on climate change?

Simple. You do what the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) did today and turn a fairly ordinary hurricane into a record-breaker.

Yes, according to NOAA’s figures the hurricane was indeed – as Breitbart reported – the strongest to make landfall in the continental U.S. ranked by pressure.

But Tony Heller smells a rat.

Failing IPCC Ramps up Climate Hysteria with New Doom Litany Report

Hoesung Lee, chair of the IPCC, speaks during the opening ceremony of the 48th session of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) in Incheon on October 1, 2018. - An executive summary of the UN special report on limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius is being vetted in …

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has issued its latest Summary for Policy Makers – and it’s the usual farrago of dubious science, wailing hysteria and worryingly eco-fascistic policy prescriptions.

  • Sea levels are rising. [As they have been, by the way, at the same harmless pace, for centuries]
  • The crisis is so dire that even if all the countries stick to their Paris Accord commitments, it still won’t be enough to stop the planet heating by 2 degrees C or more.
  • Drastic lifestyle changes must be made, drastic carbon emissions cuts must be implemented to stave off further disaster
  • $2.4 trillion must be spent by 2035 on sustainable energy projects such as wind and solar
  • Climate-related risks to health, livelihoods, food security, water supply, human security, and economic growth are projected to increase as the planet warms
  • Vector borne diseases such as malaria and dengue fever will likely increase

One observer – Benny Peiser of the Global Warming Policy Foundation – describes it as the IPCC’s “Hail Mary”: its last, desperate shot at trying to scare a world which just doesn’t care any more.

Climate Bombshell: Global Warming Scare Is Based on ‘Careless and Amateur’ Data, Finds Audit

ROME, ITALY - 2015/11/29: Thousands of citizens and environmental activists take part in the 'Global Climate March' to call for tougher action to tackle climate change in Rome. The awareness event took place ahead of the 21st Session of the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention …

The first ever audit of the world’s most important temperature data set has found it to be so riddled with errors that it is effectively useless.

HadCRUT4 is the primary dataset used by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) to make its dramatic claims about “man-made global warming”, to justify its demands for trillions of dollars to be spent on “combating climate change” and as the basis for the Paris Climate Accord.

But according to a groundbreaking analysis by Australian researcher John McLean it’s far too sloppy to be taken seriously even by climate scientists, let alone a body as influential as the IPCC or by the governments of the world.

“It’s very careless and amateur,” he says. “About the standard of a first-year university student.”

Among the many errors found by McLean were. . . .

Trump Vindicated as Paris Climate Agreement Unravels

The Paris Climate Agreement is a dead non-binding treaty walking. All the signatories know this, none of them will admit it. So instead, we have to endure the ritual spectacle of UN delegates racking up yet more air miles and dumping their carbon footprint on a new location in order to wail hysterically that much, much more needs to be done to save the planet from the greatest threat evah.

This week the UN’s clown caravan has moved to Bangkok, Thailand – the preliminary to an even bigger meeting, COP24, in December in Katowice, Poland.

As the South China Morning Post reports, the auguries aren’t good:

Time is running out to save the Paris Agreement, United Nations climate experts warned Tuesday at a key Bangkok meeting, as rich nations were accused of shirking their responsibility for environmental damage.

That’s because – just as they were in Paris 2015 – the negotiations are caught between a rock and a hard place.

Western countries don’t want to stump up for what is essentially an attempted shakedown by poorer countries demanding more handouts in the name of “climate justice.”
