Gulf Stream Abandons Europe

All during the winter the Gulf Stream has been weird.  Normally (since maps have been available to me), a strong equatorial current shoves warm water up South America and causes the gs to bathe Europe in warm water.  This is then interpreted as global warming (gorming).  But that pattern has been disrupted many times this past year.

Now the gs is funnelling up to the Arctic, causing lots of clouds and warmer than usual temperatures (only -20 C).

The red arrow is all the heat.  This causes Spain to freeze and the wolves to come down for snacks.  :)

Meanwhile, in Canada, the failed North Pacific current allows California to get drenched, and we (Toronto) are having a warm, wet January.  I just hope the raspberries don't start sprouting.  That always kills them.

The warmists will just point out a warm Arctic.  They are philosophers who always pick out what supports them.  :)  Never argue with them.

Trump advisors, please define 'science'


The internet is all a twitter about a 'purge' of scientists.  This can happen through funding.  However, these whiners won't define 'science', so Mr. Trump will have to.  He can define 'science' and give his definition of 'politicized science'.

I have given my definitions:

Philosophy Science - the current practice in climate studies of just observing things and coming up with 'just so' stories.

Science - the strict application of the scientific method.

Our modern world started when the Reformation shattered Aristotle.  I've always been surprised that current scientists brought this back, but that happens when everybody is fed from the hand of politics.

ps. my comment in Forbes was 'called out', and I have no desire to see.  These people tend to regard 'science' as a universal truth that needs no definition.  :)

Last interglacial warm period was a paradise


This was a true warm period.  Most of the ice was melted.  Polar bears became grizzlies again.  Toronto was like Florida.  The tropics were as hot as ever.  No mass extinctions, humans were happily evolving.

All this was done by ocean currents.  Not a speck of carbon being burned.  Yet, the article goes on only about coastal cities being drowned if this were to happen now.  Most likely co2 was a bit higher because of the warm water, and that's why life thrived.

ps. polar and grizzly bears are like coyotes and wolves in Ontario.  They regularly split and merge.
