    The truly remarkable thing is that it apparently really does think it’s clever.

    It’s quite common in our regular trolls. For example, that was chameleon’s foible as well. Evidence to the contrary is like heavy rain off an Argentinian duck’s back…

    Karen, Macri gives no detail beyond that this was the second heaviest rainfall in the city… ‘heaviest’ is ambiguous and is very likely to be a one day total,rather than a comment on relative intensities. Rainfall totals by convention are one day periods. It is very unlikely that in 1906 an hourly rate is being observed. Your assumption is obvious, your comprehension is amply demonstrated to be feeble at best.

    Falls in La Plata according to local press were well in excess of the figures from BA airport.

    Karen, you fuckwit, Australia is not the world.

    RTFR. Note the discussion of “regional” vs “global”. It’s the same old, same old with you, isn’t it?

    Now, back to the questions you refuse to answer:

    1/. Now, why wouldn’t precipitation increase if OHC, SST, LST and tropospheric T increase? Please justify this assertion:

    Fact: There is NO greenhouse signature to this flood, that would be only in the minds of those desperately looking for the CO2 bogyman, lol

    2/. Please summarise the effects you think warming will have on the hydrological cycle.

    Do not dare to repeat this:

    At no time did I discuss evaporation rates and temperature, your barking up the wrong tree old chum (WOOF WOOF little doggy).

    Trying to pretend that this discussion *does not* derive from the effects of warming on the hydrological cycle is beyond disingenuous. It transcends contemptible.

    Don’t fuck about with me like this again.

    My very witty, incisive and highly intelligent comment yesterday seems to have gone astray so I will try again because I am always eager to help you little Deltoids as much as possible.

    So, to ensure that you have the very latest jargon, which some of those appalling ‘deniers’ have called ‘gobbledegook’, let me tell you what the next ‘in’ phrase is, and if anyone giggles they will get a hundred lines and stay behind after school:

    “Retrospective prediction”!

    Now, it is important that you use this as often as possible and when you do so you must get across that you really, really mean it, er, whatever it actually means!

    No, no, please, no need to thank me.

    It’s fun to watch cretins like SpamKan try to deny that the hydrological cycle isn’t strengthening when MSL is massively reduced by the very odd ‘double’ La Nina 2011 – 2012.

    So much evaporated seawater precipitated over land that the sea level fell further and faster than at any time in the record.

    The Argentine National Meteorological Service has produced a report on the event which ranks the precipitation recorded at official stations. No mention is made of anecdotal reports of much higher figures in La Plata. Given the report was released within a couple of days of the event, you can assume that data from private sources has not yet been collated,if indeed that is an intention.

    The 24 hr total recorded at Buenos Aires is the highest for any April on record, the reference period starts in 1906. The second highest April fall occurred in 1989. So Macris remark, if accurate and accurately translated, refers to any-month falls at some time post 1906. April is not exactly the height of the wet season,which peaks Feb-March. As well, Oct and Nov are wetter on average than April. These are record falls on a seasonal shoulder,and close to all time.

    The official 24 hr figure from la Plata [181mm] is the highest by a considerable margin [50mm] in data starting from 1959.

    Data for shorter periods ,6 hours and 1 hour are given,and the reference period is very short,starting 1999…which strongly suggests that the all-month highest fall –Macri’s ‘heaviest’– is a 24hr figure. The 2 hour fall is the second highest on record for Buenos Aires Observatory. The highest is a January fall, with the other high figures almost exclusively Jan Feb or Mar.

    No 1hr fall data are available at La Plata, and the 6hr figure to midnight 2/4/13 is 125mm.

    It’s absolutely amazing, SpamKan’s lack of basic comprehension. We get another spammed link to Svensmark and his hypothesis that cosmic rays may affect cloud.

    But nothing whatsoever on the hydrological cycle or how moisture enters the atmosphere to form clouds (they’re formed by evaporation of water which is caused by heat which is increased by CO2 re-radiation to simplify for you SpamKan).

    But all it takes is one misconstrued or not even understood concept and the deniers are off and away. Teh Stupid incarnate indeed.

    Also missing how clouds become clouds: there is a lot of water surrounding a nucleation site. Putting lots of nucleation sites will inhibit clouds.

    ‘sfunny how deniers get all bent out of shape because “greenhouse gas effect” isn’t precisely the same as a greenhouse, yet are completely fine with a “cloud chamber” despite it being very little like a chamber with clouds in. If you had enough condensation to cause clouds in a “cloud chamber”, you’d be unable to do anything with it.

    Some landowners are sueing some energy and chemical companies. What is interesting is the companies’ defense…
    “In their petition for a review by the full 5th Circuit, the companies argued that global warming was not attributable only to them but resulted from the emissions of greenhouse gases from millions of sources dating back to the Industrial Revolution.”

    So if even they are not denying AGW and it’s causes, that shows just how far removed from reality the deniers are.

  61. #61 chek
    April 10, 2013

    Redarse, do NOT come here and spew your half-baked vacant assertions such as #52.

    AGW is an entirely scientifically robust theory supported by many lines of evidence established over the past century, studied by today’s leading scientists and peer-reviewed so far up the arse, it gets a clean bill of dental health.

    If you want to wank on about ‘correlations going back to 1856′ picked up from your failing PR sites, it’s up to YOU to do the work and bring something substantial to the table. Not pathetic innuendos suggesting ‘maybes’ and ‘what ifs’.

    But of course we already know you’re just a spam chumming idiot without the wherewithal, and all that you CAN do is repeat the same formulated bilge to thinking people that your preferred disinformers churn out, which satisfies the easily satisfied, uninformed idiot minds of you and your ilk.

    Take your received, second-hand shiteideas to Watts’ place or wherever, but not here.

  62. #62 bill
    April 11, 2013

    Speaking of many lines of evidence

    Recently observed extreme temperatures at high northern latitudes are rare by definition, making the longer time span afforded by climate proxies important for assessing how the frequency of such extremes may be changing. Previous reconstructions of past temperature variability have demonstrated that recent warmth is anomalous relative to preceding centuries or millennia, but extreme events can be more thoroughly evaluated using a spatially resolved approach that provides an ensemble of possible temperature histories. Here, using a hierarchical Bayesian analysis of instrumental, tree-ring, ice-core and lake-sediment records, we show that the magnitude and frequency of recent warm temperature extremes at high northern latitudes are unprecedented in the past 600 years. The summers of 2005, 2007, 2010 and 2011 were warmer than those of all prior years back to 1400 (probability P > 0.95), in terms of the spatial average. The summer of 2010 was the warmest in the previous 600 years in western Russia (P > 0.99) and probably the warmest in western Greenland and the Canadian Arctic as well (P > 0.90). These and other recent extremes greatly exceed those expected from a stationary climate, but can be understood as resulting from constant space–time variability about an increased mean temperature. [Emphasis mine]

    What many a Denialatus doesn’t know – and I assure you this is true, this collective and tacit accord embracing willful ignorance is how meatbots like Rednose and SpamKan are able to operate – is that research like this – proper, bona-fide scientific assessments reviewed by people who actually know what they’re doing – is being published all the time.

    We’re actually drowning in evidence, but these people are the Creationists of the 21st Century, and mere science cannot move them.

    So the jackasses and jillasses simply extrude themselves out of the oily sheen of the epistemic bubble momentarily, gurgling and sputtering their mantra of ‘no evidence'; knowing all the while that shortly surface-tension will suck them safely back inside in the warm goo.

    “The study, led by the University of Colorado Boulder with co-authors at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) and other organizations, suggests that an unusual, 50-year-long episode of four massive tropical volcanic eruptions triggered the Little Ice Age between 1275 and 1300 A.D. The persistence of cold summers following the eruptions is best explained by a subsequent expansion of sea ice and a related weakening of Atlantic currents, according to computer simulations conducted for the study.”

    Every time Karen’s wafer thin b* is undermined, he/she/it scuttles back to WUWT. I find his/her/its persistence in the face of a consistent hammering to represent either profound ignorance or else just that Karen is a sucker for punishment. Nobody who reads Deltoid – with the exception of equally brush-daft clowns such as Rednose – swallow Karen’s nonsense, yet he/she/it keeps returning to be bashed again and again.

    Get a life, Karen. You give me the impression that you sit in front of a computer all day reading and re-reading garbage from a bunch of climate change denial web sites which you then rehash by cutting and pasting over here. You are willfully ignorant in just about every facet of science, as demonstrated every time you write something. And, like Rednose, you have mastered the art of ‘baiting and switching’ – writing some such gibberish, having it categorically debunked, then moving on the something else. Worse still, also like Rednose you then return to the original meme (for instance the ‘it hasn’t warmed since 1996 despite an increase in atmospheric C02′) canard, of course ignoring, or, as is more likely, failing to understand the dynamics of scale or the difference between stochastic and deterministic processes.

    Moreover, you also seem to think that highlighting a few outlier points – such as a cold weather event here or there, or else some example of local biodiversity suffering as a response to these events somehow disproves AGW. You actually paste this stuff up here when anybody who has even a basic understanding of science knows that many data points are generally needed to make a regression significant – and that, based on the empirical data, there are many more data points showing polewards or altitudinal shifts in the distributions of many species and species populations since the 1970s, that growing seasons and life cycles (e.g. intra-seasonal generations) have been increased, and so on and so forth. On the other side of the ledger we have seen a number of phenological mis-matches generated by differential responses of species in food chains to rapid recent regional warming. None of this is remotely controversial because we have the data – lots of it – to prove it.

    And then you cut and past a few articles showing the odd outlier and try to claim this disproves what hundreds of studies in peer-reviewed journals show.

    In summary, this clearly shows that you are not interested in science, but in promoting your own, twisted version of the world. Only those with a similar mind set are sucked in by your histrionics, Karen. And on Deltoid there are thankfully few of those. Why don’t you stick with the denier blogs run ostensibly by people like you? Those with little or no scientific pedigree who try and ‘package’ their clearly ideological views as science?

    While the doofus is in the away phase, the BoM has a serious announcement to make.

    That’s the official website of a premier scientific institution full of trained boffins and actual meteorologists, rather than a blog run by, oh, let’s say some some superannuated TV weatherman who looks like a Scooby Doo villain*, or any of a selection of oil-funded cranks, ageing tin-foil hat misanthropes, or complete Libertarian lunatics.

    Because that’s what constitutes ‘science’ in SpamKan’s world. And Rednose’s, Olaus’s, Duffer’s, etc..

    *and he would have gotten away with it, too, if it wasn’t for those meddling science kids…

    Following your advice, I looked up stochasticism and determinism to fill in the obvious gaps in my knowledge which you kindly drew to my attention. I am convinced now and wish to mend my ways. Do you think if you put a good word in for me they would let me join?

    Have you ever noticed that ‘lol’ is a term much-favoured by slack-jawed individuals whose tongue is, indeed, inclined to loll in their open mouths, just as a little runnel of drool tends regularly to slide down their chins?

    I repeat, you do your cause no good whatsoever; calling a paper in Nature ‘toilet paper’ only convinces us that you are a childish, resentful ignoramus, who bitterly resents those smarter than herself – one mightily big set!

    I know you have problems reading charts deary, lol, but this chart also shows that Australia was warmer in 1915, golly gosh pumpkin :) and lookie at that massive sea of beautiful blue compared to the smaller amount of red.

    Now WHY didn’t BOM include 2011 & 2012 data in their alarmist report ? Hmmm……………

    Your painfull sounding anatomical position goes some way to explaining how you can vomit copious amounts of both shit and bile at the same time.

    “AGW is an entirely scientifically robust theory supported by many lines of evidence”

    If you read the “Met Office Briefing Document” mentioned above, you might notice the responses are hedged and uncertain.
    Are there doubts appearing about some of this “robust theory”.

    So Epicycles to you.

    ‘Toilet paper’ is, believe it or not, a reference to the paper just published in Nature I quoted from and linked to earlier. Yes, this creature possesses no dignity whatsoever.

    Karen, you need never fear having anything published in Nature, though I suspect you might yet get your own call-out box in the DSM V…

    Again; Denial is about good faith arguments from intelligent people? Hardly!

    Now the gibbering fool suggests the BoM can’t make sense of its own data!

    This is, characteristically, disgraceful behaviour, Karen; you really ought to be shamed of yourself, but shame is clearly an emotion too elevated to be available to you.
