Joe Bastardi Saturday Summary On July Temperature: “The Globe Is Below Normal”

Tis the season for global warming alarmists to scour the globe in search summer heat waves – to parade as proof of global warming.

In Central Europe we are currently having a sort of a heat wave with temperatures near 90°F (32°C). The forecast for the weekend calls for higher, perhaps all-time record setting temperatures. This has the heat-chasers here salivating like Pavlov’s dogs.

But Joe Bastardi’s Saturday Summary puts the whole global picture into perspective. Satellite data conclusively show that July global temps are running below normal, see chart above or Joe’s video starting at about the 3-minute mark.

Global temperature anomaly is -0.131°C. So where’s the heat? The oceans probably ate it.

Little wonder that Joe later on in his clip says that the warmist side “got taken to the woodshed” by the skeptics in the recent Congressional hearings, which is why such debates and hearings are totally avoided in places like Germany.

Alarmists like to trot out Hurricane Sandy as hard evidence of global climate change. Joe responds with a chart depicting hurricane activity back in the 1950s, a time when atmospheric CO2 concentrations were below 350 ppm:

So what can we conclude? Man-made climate change of the sort peddled by the alarmists is really something for the ignorant and hopelessly clueless to be suckered into believing. There’s lots of educating that still needs to get done out there.

    There is, actually, a lot of de-programming to be done, at all levels of our societies, but particularly among the so-called “authorities”, which are now incompetent and thus harmful to us, rather than beneficial as our laws stipulate they should be.

    O/T The “Cannibal of Rothenburg” has been elected leader of the Green group in his jail. He is not a paying member of the Green party but some of the members of the group are, and are entitled to make petitions to the Green Party.

    Nice observation, Pierre, that the amount of warmist drivel in our newspapers is perfectly correlated with the temperature outside. The same with my newspaper.
