Global Cooling Disproves Global Warming Theory

Sorry gang. I have converted. I no longer accept Anthropogenic Global Warming Theory. I simply cannot reply to the deluge of facts presented in David Deming’s Year of global cooling article. The Cognitive Dissonance it’s causing in my brain has given me no choice but to accept that I was wrong. Deming’s a geophysicist, adjunct scholar with the National Center for Policy Analysis, and an associate professor of Arts and Sciences at the University of Oklahoma. So he’s got my dinky little BA in English way past beat in the credentials department.

Even SciTech Daily linked to the story. Oh boy, looks like I’m going to be having crow for dinner.

Deming’s evidence for global cooling in 2007 are as follows:

  • The 2007 hurricane season was the third-quietest since 1966.
  • Snow fell for the first time in Buenos Aires since 1918.
  • 200 people died in Peru from cold.
  • Australia experienced the coldest June ever.
  • Australian city of Townsville underwent the longest period of continuously cold weather since 1941.
  • January 2007, $1.42 billion worth of California produce was lost to a five-day freeze.
  • April, a killing freeze destroyed 95 percent of South Carolina’s peach crop.
  • April 8, Charlotte, N.C. set a record low temperature of 21 degrees.
  • June 8, Denver recorded a new low of 31 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Dec. 7, St. Cloud, Minn. set a record low of minus 15 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Nov. 24, Meacham, Ore., set a record low 12 degrees Fahrenheit colder than the previous record low set in 1952
  • Oklahoma, Kansas and Missouri experienced a destructive ice storm that killed at least 36 people.
  • Skeptical of Deming’s data? Well then, just have a look for yourself. There it is, right there on the NOAA’s website. Charlotte NC, lowest temperature for the month of April since 1923.

    Suck it Treehuggers!!!

    Hold on… What’s this? Imperial CA set a new all time high for April, beating out 1989? Salt Lake City UT set a new all time high for April, beating 1992? McGrath AK had the warmest April on record, beating the previous record set in 1998? Why would Demming leave these facts out?

    Still, Denver reported a record… excuse me “new low” of 31 degrees F in June, but for some reason that doesn’t make the NOAA’s list for that month. Okay, it doesn’t always have to be a “record” low to mean global cooling. Besides Meacham Oregon set a record low that was 12 degrees colder than the previous record set in 1952! Bam!!!

    Only that one doesn’t show up in the NOAA’s list either. Meacham Oregon did set many new cold records for November, as we can see, so did many other locations. In fact, there are 136 new record low temperatures listed for November 2007 and 78 ties. Obviously I should have written Deming’s article, I’m so much better at researching this stuff than that dipsy wanna-be professor.

    To be fair, lemme just run a quick query of the highest maximum temperatures set in November 2007, to show how paltry the results are, and we can wrap this up?

    Jolly good.

    WFT!?!? It comes back with 878 new all time highs and 474 ties??? But–but–But Deming said–! He–! Why??? Why would he not know about this with all his researching and Professorial ambitions and whatnot?

    Let’s see how the rest of 2007 compares*:

    In fact, the top 11 warmest years all have all occurred in the last 13 years. 2007 was the 10th warmest year for the US, and, as early data suggests, the 7th warmest year for the world.

    News Flash!!! 2007 has just tied as Earth’s second warmest year on record, making the eight warmest years in the GISS record occurring since 1998, and the 14 warmest years in the record have all occurred since 1990.

    I’m sorry… What’s that about “Global Cooling???”

    Deming isn’t just cherry-picking his facts; he’s traveling to the ends of the Earth for any pathetic scrap of data he can use to distort the truth. This is beyond dishonest; stupidity simply doesn’t explain what we’re seeing in this article. This man has no business teaching anywhere to anyone. He is an enemy of enlightenment and education.

    Why… in order to buy into David Deming’s arguments for global cooling, you’d have to be a really big dumbass. I mean a really really big dumbass. Like, instead of a skull full of brains, you’d have to have a head full of fart.

    Like this source, this source, this source, this source, this source, and this source. Most of which just cut and paste Deming’s commentary into their own blogs.

    You see Parrotheads? This is the sort of unthinking zombified behavior that makes most of the world consider you irrelevant.

    * The numbers in this table are not to be used as evidence of Global Warming. The numbers for December are not yet complete. Also the previous record years, and difference between the current and previous records are not included. All of that needs to be considered before drawing conclusions. A Statistician and a Climatologist would need to get together and crunch some numbers in order to draw any hypotheses from this data.

    There is nothing scientific in this table in regards to global warming. This data is only presented to show what a bunch of dumbasses David Deming and his readers are, not just for selectively presenting the facts, but for trying to use anecdotal evidence in order to disprove a trend phenomena.
