Extreme weather caused by – you guessed it – global warming!

“Get ready for more dangerous and ‘unprecedented extreme weather’ caused by global warming,” warns science writer Seth Borenstein, discussing the special report on global warming and extreme weather  issued late last week by “the Nobel Prize-winning Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPPC).”

“Nobel-Prize-winning,” no less.

Well, yes, after all, the IPCC did share the Nobel Prize with that pre-eminent climate scientist Al Gore.

I think more appropriate initials would be IPCCC – Irresponsible Climate-Cooling Cover-up.

“These experts fear that without preparedness, crazy weather extremes may overwhelm some locations, making some places unlivable,” says Borenstein, who I don’t think could recognize global cooling even if he were encased in a glacier.

Heat waves “will become hotter and happen once every five years by mid-century and every other year by the end of the century,” Borenstein quotes the panel as saying. In some places “they will likely become yearly bakings.”

Very heavy rainstorms will happen far more frequently, three times, even four times more often than now, the report said.

No mention of heavy snowfall, such as the record-breaking snowstorms three weeks ago from Maryland to Maine.

Scientists can now attribute the increase in many of these types of extreme weather events to global warming with increased confidence, said study author Thomas Stocker at the University of Bern.

The report said it is “virtually certain” that heat waves are getting worse, longer and hotter, while cold spells are easing.

The 29-page summary of the full report “says that extremes could get so bad at some point that some regions may need to be abandoned.”

“Even in some developed northern regions of the world, such as Canada, Russia and Greenland, cities might need to move because of weather extremes and sea level rise from man-made warming, said one of the study’s lead authors, Maarten van Aalst, director of the International Red Cross/Red Crescent Climate Centre in the Netherlands.

“In places like van Aalst’s native Netherlands, citizens will have to learn how to handle new weather problems, in this case heat waves.”

“Such extremes are more likely in a future dominated by global warming.”

Hmmm. No mention of the record snowpack across the western United States this past season.

And no mention of the fact that sea levels are now falling.

Oh, you didn’t know that?

Yes, according to Envisat, the largest Earth Observation spacecraft ever built, sea levels are falling, not rising.

And why would sea levels be falling? Because that moisture is being locked up on land as snow and ice.

It will be interesting to see how the IPCC spins the coming plunging temperatures and massive snowstorms.

  1. TV planetary scientists (over the years) have informed me that 1) the atmospheric heat on Venus is tied to its calm, non-stormy weather, and 2) the cold of Jupiter, Saturn, and beyond, is responsible for centuries-long storms like the Great Red Spot (“not as much friction,” they said). Wouldn’t that argue for some linkage between Worse-Storms and Colder-Weather? But after all, I’m not a TV expert!

  2. Extreme weather is caused by rapid “Global Cooling” – is what this stupid article should be reading. But the stupid liberals in charge of our very ignorant media and public schools are getting more retarded each year. They have a mass disease in their brain called liberalism, which is a gene defect known to be incurable. Even if the temperature were to drop to 98 below in the Congo of Africa – or even if an iceberg were to pass by Miami, they’d still be screaming the same BS about global warming. But by then, we’d all be frozen to death, so don’t listen to them ! Better prepare for an ice age. It’s already here as rapid “global cooling and glacier growth” continues. Here is a link why these people are so retarded:

  3. Are these people living in an alternate universe? As you point out, Robert, not a peep about the latest sea level drop data, nor a sound about record snowfall and low temperatures.

    Listening to how they describe what happens with global warming would be like when you’re in bed covered with a blanket, you alternate from being warm then cold all night. That doesn’t happen to me.

    Also all the dire predictions we have heard from them the past 20 years. By now something should be showing up, but, nothing has and in many cases the climate has done just the opposite what they have predicted. It’s truly crazy.

  4. Good article and shows how ridiculous things are getting.
    The IPCC won’t back down on their “theories” because they have the backing of the major banks who are set to make trillions from the new carbon taxes.
    There must be some point though where the public must see the truth over the lies.
    What happens then is anyone’s guess.

  5. I am so tired of all this foolishness. I have done the research and have made sure everything that I say is backed by evidence and science. I have checked my models over and over, dotted all the “I”s and crossed all the “T”s. There is do doubt whatsoever that the warming of the last decades of the 1900s was due to the increasing number of UFO sightings, not to carbon dioxide, and the cooling of the last 12 to 13 years has been because of the increase in complexity of crop circles. There is irrefutable evidence to prove this. Certainly as much as there is to prove AGW.

  7. “Theory is when you understand everything, but nothing works.”
    “Practice is when everything works, but nobody understands why.”
    “At the IPCC, theory and practice are united, so nothing works and nobody understands why.”

  8. Yes, here we go again, with more lies from the liberal-controlled media, fabricating (not reporting the facts) their AGW agenda. We may think they are only being ridiculous fools but they are a danger to our freedom and way of life. I cannot think of anything more unpatriotic than the so-called global warming movement. Thank God we have someone like Robert to rally around to tell us the truth of the impending Ice Age that is coming our way sooner than later!

  9. Just a reminder–weather is not climate. Well, unless I guess it’s hot weather, then it makes us think it’s hotter, thus global warming. You can’t have it both ways unless you have an agenda.

  10. Interesting that Louise Gray, Environment Correspondent says “the last serious heatwave in Britain in 2003 killed at least 2,000 people.”

    Whilst that statistic is horrible – no one wants to see the elderly dying prematurely – it is damning that these alarmists NEVER mention a statistic I saw recently on the GWPF site.

    The real horror is that nearly 3000 people per year have died in the last 3 cold UK winters – YES 7000 more than the heatwave killed or 1000 more per annum – because the spiralling energy costs of the Government folly of increasing subsidized “renewable” energy sources meant these people could not afford to heat their homes and died from cold induced hypothermia !!

    Louise Gray, Environment Correspondent should hang her head in shame as an alarmist propagandaist with no compassion.

    What bastards these liars are !

    • You are forgeting the garganyuan subidies for big oil. The real problem is the cororate suppresion of so called free energy. This type of energybwas first discovered by Tesla. But yhe big energy cartel won’y allow it to ne developed because it can’t be metered. Not to mention the copper industry would lose a huge fortune for it’s top exects. So think about it. If we had access to this techology at every building it wouldn’t matter heatwaves or coldsnaps.

  11. uh uh…if you read the IPCC early release they say.
    there will be NO appreciable warming for some 30 years! and possibly till the end of the decade.
    the media above is progreen writers who refuse to actually READ what was said.
    now the bigQ is?
    if??
    AGW was for real in any way, and outputs of Co2 are still rising from Manmade sources…
    then you would be scratching your head as to why?? all impacts are suddenly vanished?
    its the biggest doublespeak I have ever come across.
    basically the IPCC is saying they rescind 30 to 100 years of forward projections…
    but all they MIS stated as fact before was ok and dont ask us any hard questions.
    Farce of the Highest order! same as their nobels were!
    WUWT had some really good comments and the report.

  12. Piers Corbyn reckons that extreme events will continue through 2012 and then the climate will calm down.

    A clear divergence of hypotheses which can be monitored, eh?

    I wonder if Borenstein is man enough to front up to that challenge??

  13. If the snow line, areas under drought, the areas flooded and wet matches that of Little Ice Age, it ‘s cooling and the Global Warming Freaks are dellussional. Not complicated!

  14. If you look at what happens just before a cold front comes barreling at you, there is a sudden spike in temps, which can cause violent weather when the warm air and the cold air collide. If you multiply this effect by a large number, you see a precedent that is universal in nature.

    We in Texas had the hottest summer on record, but what if it is just the calm before the storm? Im investing in snuggies!

  15. I predict that the global warmers will drop the global warming theme altogether.

    First, they rebranded their theory as climate change. Now they include colder temperatures in “climate change.” It is only a matter of time before they deny ever predicting warmer weather.

    Probably the denial will come in the form: “Warmer weather was only one of many predicted consequense of climate change.”

    They will, however, continue to finger C02 as the culprit. In other words, people are to blame and higher taxes are still a necessity.

    The latter conclusion is indispensible to securing government grants.

  16. Give them one more morph and we will learn that “global warming” was “climate change” and “climate change” is “the coming ice age.” Their for whatever “cure” will be to tax carbon fuel and give huge tax subsidies to corrupt politicians. The sheeple will line up.
