Falsified Ice Graphs

From Steve Goddard's Real Science:
NSIDC claims that 1979 was the beginning of the satellite era for measuring ice, but this simply isn’t true. The graph below is from the 1990 IPCC report, and shows why NSIDC likes to use 1979 as their start date.

When did the data start?

Farewell Bob Brown; Farewell Greens

Christine reaches out to the rural sector
The influence of the Greens is declining and Bob Brown has jumped from a sinking Titanic albeit a tiny titanic (official oxymoron).

In a column from the Sunday Telegraph Miranda Devine wrote a piece entitled, in my printed copy of the paper "A woodchip off the old block" and on-line "Beware a wolf in sheep's clothing."

On a rural slanted social website, Christine Milne opened up a group page to try to woo the people from the bush. However she underestimated us and she couldn't stand the heat and left the grounds. Now she is trying to whoop up country credentials again.
Milne, 58, made a pitch to rural and regional voters, claiming “the Greens and the bush” simply misunderstood each other. “I’m going out there as a country person to say to other country people it is time that the Greens and country people worked together.” 

Miranda reports the Green's failures:
Good luck with that, considering greenies are the chief cause of grief to the bush.
Let us count the ways.
  1. Forestry towns destroyed by irrational green tree worship.
  2. Uncontrollable bushfires caused, not by global warming, but by green opposition to hazard reduction.
  3. National parks left to feral animals which rampage through neighbouring farms.
  4. Dams never built thanks to greenie protests.
  5. Wind turbines plonked all over bucolic hillsides.
  6. A live cattle industry brought to its knees.
  7. The Wild Rivers assault on the ability of entrepreneurial Cape York Aborigines to earn a living from their land.
  8. Dangerous highways which kill country people in disproportionate numbers, because green tape blocks road upgrades.
  9. Bans on rodeos and coal mining.
  10. Sky rocketing energy prices, thanks to the Greens-mandated carbon tax and clean energy follies.
  11. Full-frontal attacks on farming by greenies arrogant enough to presume they know better than a family who has earned a living off land they have cultivated for generations.
  12. Greenies are as much the enemy of country people as locusts or droughts. The difference is that natural disasters come and go.
Greens never stop. And like an old fashioned protection racket, they wreck the joint and now they want to talk.
Miranda writes:
(Milne's) whimsical gardening blog, with its talk of gooseberry pie and luscious pictures of home-grown passionfruit is as unthreatening and cosy as politicians get.
Perhaps she thought that her foray into the rural slanted social website would be "as unthreatening and cosy as politicians get." Unfortunately, us "rubes" on the rural slanted social website were a little more sophisticated than she expected.

For the sake of the future of the country, let's hope and pray we are seeing the end of the destructive, watermelon greens.

IPCC's GCMs Fail Again- Peer reviewed paper

NASA Earth Observatory
In a new paper  published in the Journal of Geophysical Research:
JOURNAL OF GEOPHYSICAL RESEARCH, VOL. 116, D23102, 9 PP., 2011doi:10.1029/2011JD015904 

Recent recovery of the Siberian High intensity
This study highlights the fast recovery of the wintertime Siberian High intensity (SHI) over the last two decades. The SHI showed a marked weakening trend from the 1970s to 1980s, leading to unprecedented low SHI in the early 1990s according to most observational data sets. This salient declining SHI trend, however, was sharply replaced by a fast recovery over the last two decades. Since the declining SHI trend has been considered as one of the plausible consequences of climate warming, the recent SHI recovery seemingly contradicts the continuous progression of climate warming in the Northern Hemisphere. We suggest that alleviated surface warming and decreased atmospheric stability in the central Siberia region, associated with an increase in Eurasian snow cover, in the recent two decades contributed to this rather unexpected SHI recovery. The prominent SHI change, however, is not reproduced by general circulation model (GCM) simulations used in the IPCC AR4. The GCMs indicate the steady weakening of the SHI for the entire 21st century, which is found to be associated with a decreasing Eurasian snow cover in the simulations. An improvement in predicting the future climate change in regional scale is desirable.

Climate modeling failure remains a major embarrassment for the UN's IPPC's "climate science" efforts - this time their models failed at predicting the 'Siberian Highs' that dominate Northern Hemisphere weather
