I worry how history will be read in just a few decades from now. Before our eyes, institutions charged with advancing the AGW Party narrative are scrubbing inconvenient historical events from the books.
Michael Mann was one of the most infamous culprits, with his blatant rewriting of the warm periods of the past–namely the erasing of the Medieval Warm Period; but there are more-subtle attempts at rewriting history occurring playing out today.
A recent BBC article opens with: “What could be the highest temperature ever reliably recorded on Earth –130F (54.4C)– may have been reached in Death Valley National Park, California.”
The word “reliably” is of course key here, and it is the setup for the BBC’s attempt at discrediting the hotter heat records of the past. The institution’s repellent Orwellian ‘attack’ begins by disputing the all-time record of 134F, or 56.6C set back in 1913–the hottest temperature ever recorded on Earth (and one the BBC rounds-down for some inexplicable reason, with the official record actually standing at 134.1F).
According to the agenda-driven, history-twisting BBC: “[1913’s record] is believed by some modern weather experts to have been erroneous, along with several other searing temperatures recorded that summer.”
The BBC are disputing not just one temperature reading but multiple temperature readings and from different thermometers and at different locations, too.
But hold on a minute, the respected journalists at the BBC have managed to Google-up some old “science” to support their claim. They’ve come across the restroom-wall scribblings of an ill-informed activist-stooge, and, as with all restroom-wall scribblings that happen to tow the AGW Party line, they run the risk of being used as expert testimony.
The activist-stooge in question this time is Christopher Burt (…no, me neither).
“According to a 2016 analysis from weather historian Christopher Burt,” continues the BBC, “other temperatures in the region recorded in 1913 do not corroborate the Death Valley reading,”–a paragraph which totally contradicts the opening one; but ignoring that, it says a lot if Christoper-“I’ve never heard of him either”-Burt is the best you can dig-up.
1) Burt isn’t a scientist, he’s a self-appointed weather historian, and 2) even in the great, respected field of self-appointed weather historians, with his eminently useful BA in International Relations backing him up, Christopher Burt is still a nobody.
However, that matters not, of course, he spews the AGW Party line, and so he’s in.
The BBC go on to quote Burt again. And up next, he’s questioning the 131F (55C) record set in Tunisia back in 1931. Apparently, this reading isn’t good enough for him either, and, according to Burt –and only to Burt– it has “serious credibility issues”.
That’s as far as the BBC goes though. What credibility issues? And what’s to say the temperature that day in Tunisia wasn’t actually hotter–perhaps the thermometer actually underestimated the temp…?
The BBC are throwing unsubstantiated doubt on historical heat records merely so they can claim yesterday’s 130F in Death Valley is proof that our planet is burning-up. These historical heat records were good enough for the past 100-or-so years, but as they’re now hampering the AGW Party efforts, they’re being discredited — the first step in erasing them from history all-together.
The tactic is so palpable, yet so hard for your average compliant Joe to fathom.
Nevertheless, this dangerous rewriting of history needs combating by all of us and at every corner.
Solar activity holds the key to Earth’s climate.
It is no coincidence that the heat experienced in Death Valley in 2020 is comparable to that during July of 1913. The year 1913 falls within the deep solar minimum of weak solar cycle 14 — a remarkably similar setup to today’s:
Climate is cyclic, never linear, and activity within the Sun is the driving factor, not Man and his inconsequential enterprises.
Humans have as much of a say in the grand climate cycles as ants on mound of dirt. We can shift that dirt about, ravage the local environment even, completely alter our surroundings; however, we have ZERO say in the multimillennial will of the cosmos.
Man is, however, capable of recognizing the cycles, them having been ingrained deep within-us throughout our evolution. And for those capable of shutting off the fear-mongering, ear-splitting bleats spewing from Big Brother’s telescreens, these cyclical patterns suggest a return of the COLD TIMES is on the cards, that the mid-latitudes are REFREEZING, in line with historically low solar activity, cloud-nucleating Cosmic Rays, and a meridional jet stream flow.
Prepare accordingly — learn the facts, relocate if need be, and grow your own.
