More bad news for the IPCC.

Each month Professor Ole Humlum from the University of Oslo published the latest month's data in a report called Climate4you.  He has just issued the latest for June 2013. (link - pdf)
Superimposed plot of all five global monthly temperature estimates. As the base period differs 
for the individual temperature estimates, they have all been normalised by comparing with
the average value of the initial 120 months (10 years) from January 1979 to December 1988. 
The heavy black line represents the simple running 37 month (c. 3 year) mean of the average
 of all five temperature records. The numbers shown in the lower right corner represent 
the temperature anomaly relative to the individual 1979-1988 averages 

  • The two satellite records continue to show cooling;
  • All three surface air temperature records continue to show negative temperature trend for the last 5 and 10 years; however
  • as seen by the Mauna Loa record below CO2 continues its rise:

The former United Nations chief climate negotiator Yvo de Boer in Australia this week, regarding the forthcoming fifth assessment by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change said:
"THAT report is going to scare the wits out of everyone,”
Did he mean everyone, or did he mean those looking for further grant money for research into the "settled science."

"Coal Keeps the Lights On"

Original song on America's Got Talent:

Ex US Marine Jimmy Rose looks at life differently after being away at war, so he's chasing his dreams.

See him sing his original song "Coal Keeps the Lights On" about the Kentucky coalmines that has his mom in tears and the Judges sending him to Las Vegas!
