It’s “Global Boiling” – be afraid, be very afraid!

Friday/weekend blog

It seems that we plebs weren’t frightened enough by the supposed threat of ‘Global Warming’ nor by ‘Climate Crisis’ nor by ‘Climate Emergency’ nor even by ‘Climate Breakdown’. So, our private-jet-setting, climate-conference-attending, one-world-government rulers have come up with a new name for weather to browbeat us into giving up our lifestyles and our freedoms. The aim of this new name is to prepare us for their car-free incarceration in just our local area (for us, not them), 15-minute cities (for us, not them), poorly-heated homes (for us, not them), rationed food (for us, not for them), flight-free holidays (for us, not for them) and climate lockdowns (for us, not them). Yes, apparently the Earth is heating up so much that we’re now into the era of ‘Global Boiling’.

Here’s a quote (in red to reflect the catastrophic future awaiting us) from just one of this week’s hyperbolic, hyperventilating warnings. This particular gem is from The Independent:

The warning lights have been on for weeks but now it is official: July 2023 is set to be the hottest month on record – and possibly in 120,000 years. The new global mean temperature – the overall reading if you could stick a thermometer at every location on Earth – was confirmed by scientists at the European Copernicus Climate Change Service and World Meteorological Organisation on Thursday. Copernicus discovered that up to 23rd July, Earth’s temperature averaged 16.95 Celsius (62.5F), giving scientists enough data to declare a record before the month ends.

Climate change is here. It is terrifying. And it is just the beginning,” United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said on the findings. “The era of global warming has ended; the era of global boiling has arrived.”

On reading this nonsense, I decided to do something very old-fashioned – check the actual temperature figures. Here’s the latest satellite data for what we’re told is the Earth’s average temperature:

There are three points I’d like to highlight:

Point 1: The 2023 temperatures up till the end of June 2023 have been well below the peaks of 1998, 2011 and 2018. This rather suggests that 2022 was not a record hot year and that 2023 isn’t going to be one either. So much for ‘Global Boiling’.

Point 2: This temperatures are taken from satellite readings. Looking at the chart above, it does seem that the Earth is warming just as the climate catastrophists claim. However, temperature-measuring satellites were first launched in the mid 1970s and results regularly reported by the end of the 1970s. As I hope you know, the Earth’s temperatures cooled so much during the 1960s and 1970s that there was agreement among the world’s leading climatologists that we were heading into a new Ice Age:

So serious was the situation, according to these experts, that they wrote a warning letter to the then U.S. president, Richard Nixon:

And the CIA was even commissioned to write a report in which the CIA predicted Global Cooling would lead to crop failures, famine, mass migrations to avoid starvation and wars as countries fought over ever-diminishing food stocks:

The end of the 1970s was the coolest the Earth has been in the last 100+ years. So, it’s hardly surprising that the Earth has been warming since then.

Point 3: These graphs are always presented as a variation from an average. This makes any changes look rather dramatic. Here’s a typical ‘be afraid, be very afraid’ chart used by the media:

But if you drew a graph of the actual change in the Earth’s average temperature, it would look something like this:

And, just to finish off today’s blog, here’s a BBC weather chart announcing a heatwave in 2019:

And here’s a chart from the BBC announcing a similar heatwave in 2023:

Can you spot the difference?

It’s almost as if there’s a concerted effort by governments and the mainstream media to terrify us:

    This doesn’t seem to be about climate anymore. It is about human stupidity and ignorance. Are the experts trying to fool us, or are they fooling themselves? It’s impossible to tell anymore.

    Rees-Mogg last night was very clear that we are the cause of climate change but he believes that we will not vote to make ourselves poor or to be without energy. He fails to see that there isn’t a country in the west that is not heading over the cliff for the common good. We have no choice at the ballot box to change anything in the UK.

    I think that you have adopted the best approach to bringing understanding because you keep to the empirical evidence and avoid any basic let alone the complex physics involved. Yet the evidence is ignored by the MSM. As I keep pointing out an average temperature is not a physical quantity that can be used in any calculation. Thermodynamics is about temperature differences for one thing so nothing can be calculated from the concept of an average. You illustrate the problem by comparing differences from the average with the average. Also remember that in physics the temperature scale used is the Kelvin scale, so a plot on the base of zero will show little change for thousands of years.

    I’m sure another fake pandemic is on the way to generate even more fear and and to distract us from reality.

    There was an old document posted on x/twitter which may of course be fake but it seemed realistic and was retweeted by some very credible journalists.

    It related to 1954 while the CIA was engineering the banana coup, Guatemala’s government announced it had learned of the plot. Coup headquarters in Florida sent a telegram to CIA’s station in Guatemala with advice on suppressing the info; one strategy was to seed flying saucer stories in the press. They said plant human interest stories like flying saucers or birth sextuplets in remote areas to take play away.

    I think this is relevant here as this playbook seems to have evolved and climate change and covid seem to be obvious distractions. Presumably not to just distract but to facilitate a response which seems always to be less freedom and one world government agenda 2030 etc.

    For 15 minute cities read ghettoes. Keep the peasants corralled.

    “Also remember that in physics the temperature scale used is the Kelvin scale, so a plot on the base of zero will show little change for thousands of years.” – Can you explain that please Mr Thorpe?

    Re Paul Chambers comment – One World Government this might be an objective using so called man made global warming; A global threat demands a unified global response.
    After the recent fires in European hot tourist destinations almost the entire British press are now treating global warming as indisputable proven fact.
    people should go to them online and leave readers comments also post links or mentions of this site.

    David, I have just seen this piece about science and Carl Sagan:

    The first video has an extract from an interview with Sagan. I found the full interview on YouTube (it says 11 years ago which is not correct because he died in 1996):

    Sagan says “That we’ve arranged a society based on science and technology in which nobody understands anything about science and technology, and this combustible mixture of ignorance and power, sooner or later, is going to blow up in our faces. I mean, who is running the science and technology in a democracy if the people don’t know anything about it?”

    It obviously is not entirely correct because a lot of people do know about science but his views were recorded before he could have seen the corruption of science that has taken place since his death. What would he have said about the pandemic?

    Isn’t the problem we face one of knowing who is correct when we are faced with people having different views? This is apparent with GB News debates. I think there is a problem because of specialisation in science and specialists are inclined to trust other specialists. The ignorance that Sagan discusses really starts in schools because brainwashing seems a better description of what I see. The parents probably went through the same system.

    I noticed that you removed a post which was related to this issue. We have to find a way to respond to the issues you raised. I saw a reference earlier to a novel that contains the following “Their minds were as impervious to contrary
    arguments as a duck’s feathers to water.” That seems to sum up the issue perfectly and the difficulty of doing anything about it. The novel is by Romain Rolland and is called “Clerambault The Story Of An Independent Spirit During The War”, written in 1920. There is a free copy online.

    Today the Telegraph not the Guardian has an article by Susan Moore which treats human caused climate change as fact. Its behind a paywall.
    However the author of this blog and some readers might go to its website and post some comment against these claims of human caused climate change as proven fact. You could also post links to this blog.

    I watched the BBC documentary about Heat Pumps last night and surprisingly thought that there was some useful discussion about some of the problems facing us. But every proposal for change is based on the belief that carbon dioxide is causing global warming and data about past high temperatures being higher than today will not do anything to change this. They argue that temperatures are increasing because of our release of carbon dioxide and they have models to support it.

    The only way to stop these green policies is by discussing the science of carbon dioxide and showing that it is completely wrong. It is a period of madness just like every other belief with no evidence that has taken over in the past. But this is more dangerous than any other because it will destroy the society that generates wealth and gives us a high standard of living.

    Science is the key to stopping these polices and nobody is discussing it. All the real scientists have been silenced and it never gets discussed on social media or by GB News. It is not difficult to show how the various TV experiments to prove CO2 is warming the earth have been faked and are no more than magic tricks.
