We are in a stagnant heat bubble



We are in this clear, stagnant bubble.  It's so small that the warmies aren't trumpeting it.  A big cold front is trying to kill it, so we may have a cold day in July.  When the front comes through, I'll be catching fish again, maybe.

The UK is freezing and they want another heat wave.  The guardian is still on the Siberian heat wave thing.  

ps.  the heat bubble is strong.  That cold air was deflected to the east.  I now lie in a pool of sweat at the cottage every night.

Cottage Report - June 29, 2020

We had some cooler weather, then on Saturday, the bass season opened with a strong wind.  The cottage neighbour said the fish were practically jumping into the boat.  He didn't know we were coming up and tossed them all back.

Then the next couple of days, all the fish stopped biting.  Blah.  Now it is very hot and no fish.

tues- stagnant air.  Crazy younuns are windsurfing on the millpond lake.  I'm waiting for them to give up and call on me to rescue them with the boat.

Records of hot years decline

Reference



This is exciting.  As temperatures were climbing, the headlines read 'Hottest Year', then '2nd hottest year', then 'In the top 5', and now we down to 'top 10'.

Soon we will be 'top 20', and that number will keep going up.  We'll freeze at 'top 100'.  blah.

Climate -- Clubbing us with the worst projection

Reference



How to create a scary headline:  take the worst projection and go to town with it.

The worst projection assumes that the world is rich and everybody is burning coal.  Not going to happen.

To make the article complete, he should have put in some physics.

Reference


I don't even think the top of the yellow is 'the worst case'.  However, I'm always happy when somebody puts in an intelligent article.  Not that it makes any diff.  There is too much money in the scare industry, and nobody can back down.

Weather is a big mucky mess for the next week


This is a map of the tropical plumes which are the only thing to give us 'weather'.  Stagnant clear air is either really hot or really cold.  Warmies don't understand that.

Anyway, we have for the first time in a month, an incursion from the Pacific.  We will not have a stagnant heat wave.  Instead, it's 'Anything Goes'.  Hopefully, the weather is nice.

This is also the type of air that could stir up the fish in the lake.  Opening Bass Season!  Yahoo.  I have a chance for my once in 10 years big fish!  Or, the neighbour can give me one.  I win either way.


Flight cancelled with full refund

So, the middle son was getting married in the Ukraine because the girl is from there.  That's all blown out of the water now.  We've been quite lucky because we went through justfly.com and the first leg to Paris was cancelled.  I just followed their instructions and everything was cancelled in two minutes, with a full refund on the credit card.

Not so lucky are the other people.  They can only cancel a flight by phone, and nobody is answering.  They are going to have to use the 'credit charge back' method if they can.  The more direct flights to Poland and Ukraine aren't being cancelled.  Ukraine is now 'open' to tourists provided they rot for 2 weeks in quarantine.  Blah.

OPG formally ends Bruce Black Hole



The end of an era for me.  I opposed this with every ounce of feeble effort and my 10 readers.  This parrot is dead.

Now, just a stone's throw to the south, the exact same people are pushing another waste disposal black hole.  They will use the same methodology, and will earn lots of money.  The indigenous people will never figure it out. 

I will oppose it with great non-effort.  It is the same geology.  It is on the same huge fault.  Everything is same.  Stay tuned, same time, same channel.  It will end the same, but like the Niagara Tunnel to Nowhere, lots of people will make money.  Not me.  :(


Indian Ocean current reversal is breaking up



This reversal was coined 'Indian Ocean El Nino', but it had little energy, and didn't really do anything much to the world temperatures.  The effect was local.

If we had physics in the world, we would have an energy-based definition of the El Nino effect.  But, no.  The next ocean current map should show most of the Indian Ocean going back to a normal flow of east to west.  Or, it could keep going for a while, who knows?  Nobody does physics.


Another climate story falls

Reference



As we know, the whole greta thing has been propped up with carefully chosen stories.  Somewhere in the world there is a heatwave, or a drought.  The last big story to fall is Australia.



So, now the Australia story falls, just like Antarctica.  Australia has suffered from a tropical plume 'lock', just like all the droughts.  That means no water for them until now.  A plume has curled up and hit them from below.  Yeah!

For us, we have a plume lock from the Pacific, but the Gulf plumes are fine.  Now we get some cooler air pushing that away.  Looks like our heatwave is over, and I don't even think we got a story out it.  Maybe next time, it's bound to get hot again sooner or later.  I can swim in the cottage lake again, better than last year.

ps.  the UK is getting a 3 day heatwave that the tabloids are going ga-ga over.  The hair-shirt guardian probably won't make a comment.

pps.  so, on our 'ice age' buying list is the world's best compost bin, insulated.  I just started it and got super-hot temperatures during this wonderful heat wave.

ammie kicked me out of the 'associates' thing, so I don't get any money for the listing, not that I ever did.

Hot at the cottage - June 20, 2020


Sunset on a hot night.  The downside of living in a tin hut is trying to sleep at night.  The younguns went swimming at night, which always helps.  The water is finally warm enough for me to swim.

Cold air swoops down on us, heat wave in Siberia


While the Northern Hemisphere is unusually cool this June, the guardian promotes a Siberian heatwave.



If the warmies ever used charts, they would see that the 'heatwave' is caused by some plumes going through Europe and hitting Siberia.  I don't think most of us would call this a heatwave.

Our little heatwave is ending next week.  The UK is getting it and the tabloids are on fire.

All in all, we are falling into my prediction, made years ago, of an ice age cycle.  All caused by the shift in ocean currents, which are the main conduit of Earth's heat energy.  Hopefully, it is just a minor cycle, and not the big one.

Cottage report -- June 18, 2020

We continue to have paradise at the lake.  The deerflies haven't quite got their act together, and only a couple of horseflies.  We, the hard core, take all that in stride.

This is sunset on the cliff.  It sometimes gets really red, but that's when the mossies come out.  Now it's a bit pink.



Right now it is super-hot on the deck.  Soon I'll go on my one second dip, but the water is full of pine pollen and it gives me itchy splotches.  Yuck.

Sea levels remain static



This is the most stable tide gauge I found.  At the gauges, sea level is mostly a matter of what the coast is doing.  Some are rising, some sinking.  This gauge mirrors all the known warming and cooling spells.  As with the satellite temperatures, it is showing a static fuzz.

We've seen in previous science papers that Antarctica and Greenland are not melting.  Sea level rise is totally due to the temperature, just like a liquid thermometer.  


Monday, June 15, 2020

Cottage Report - June 15, 2020

Yeah, we are going into another little heat wave.  We're staying up at the cottage because you have to take advantage of a little warmth.  The water is still ice-cold and the fishing is dead.  We are going into horsefly and deerfly season.

My bandwidth isn't great here, but I was going to show that there is no warmth from the Pacific and we are getting a thin blast from the Gulf.


Reference

This is great article which says that melting glaciers are causing cooling.  They are greatly confused and stating that something is wrong with the physcis, since the place is cooling and spreading ice.  Neat.

I like to collect articles that state 'Warming is Cooling'.

ps. Tuesday.  A perfect heat wave, no too hot.  The lake is cold, so it is cool at night.  I jumped in for one second.

Arctic ice takes its time to melt


This is exciting.  The black line, which is this year's ice volume, is acting weird.  It is starting to cut through the old curves.  That means we get Arctic weather this weekend, and things stay cold for a while.  It will be fun if it cuts right through everything.

The ice volume was low this year because of a huge Pacific current caused by the Halvsie El Nino.

ps.

Defund Snow Plows!


Tuesday, June 9, 2020

Don't expect a long winter, Ottawa


Actually, don't expect any winter at all when designing your trains.  Start a movement: "Defund Snow Plows".  Pay the vet for all-year tick medication. 

Enough fun.  Winter will be longer and a lot colder than the last one.  Unless another El Nino pops up, which I doubt greatly.

World temperatures generally static


Still riding off that last mini-el-nino.  The Continental US is still low, but has hooked up a bit for the season, as expected.  Must be trumpypants getting everybody hot.  :)

The Arctic has gone down when it should be rising.  The ice has suddenly stopped melting, and is cutting into the main curve.  We'll see how that goes.

I am expecting a general fall in world temps after the Pacific reversal.  The Indian Ocean reversal should be doing something, but I can't see it.  Maybe it stopping the world temps from diving.  Who knows?

Cottage Report, June 5, 2020

We are having a beautiful Mediterranean day.  Warm, soft breezes, lots of sun.  The dragonflies are patrolling the skies.


The cold air is coming tonight, with rain.  I went fishing in the nice weather and didn't get anything.  For some reason, the falcons aren't here this year.

ps.  I officially declare fishing dead until bass season at the end of the month.  My super-fisher neighbour is skunked again.

Once again, cold air battles warm


Wow, this is going to be our summer.  Warm air up, cold air down.  One day we have a heat wave, and tons of warmie articles, and the next we freeze, with the warmie press silent.

I have been chastised that I'm not doing much.  But I enjoy the warm days at the cottage, and build a fire in the evening.  The last 20 years we never had a fire to keep warm, and now I'm using up all the firewood.

All my charts are delayed due to covidity.  No physics to bring out from obscurity.

Now, if you want to see what happens when a geophysicist has to keep the party line on warming, read this.  It doesn't make any sense, poor guy, but the PR department needs stuff to keep the rich students pouring in to make the New American Elite.  Working poor need not apply.

Very cold with continuous drizzle.  We are just doing work.  The other day was warm and dry, and we had a huge turnout of dragonflies.  They are all hiding right now.

War on plastics gave us covid

When I had covid before they knew about it, I took my reusable covid bag into the store where the cashier loaded it.  I used a china covid cup at Timmy's, when I didn't have my refillable covid travel mug.  My stainless steel covid straw sprayed viruses all over the place.

I bought covid meat wrapped in butcher paper.  I used my covid buckets for the yard waste pickup.

All in all, I was a perfect citizen.   :)

ps. and at our large family picnics, we used covid dinnerware, instead of paper plates, etc.

pps.  this now brings the 'batting average' of the suzukis at 1000, or 100%.  On every single specific solution that they foisted on us, through face and twit.  We are in a historic era.  They are now working on banning natural gas as we hit an ice age.

more: and the philosphers killed nuclear in Germany, allowing the Russians to send the latest jets to Libya for more killing.  Smooth move.


Indian Ocean currents in full reversal



I don't think I've seen this before.  They are calling it 'Indian Ocean El Nino', but they don't define it by physics, since that is anathma to their dogma.  :)

That is why we are getting tropical plumes started in the Indian Ocean, again, something new for me.  We are also getting a small reversal in the Pacific, but these things come and go.

But it is interesting that things happening in the Indian Ocean come right over the whole world.  Wouldn't it be nice to get some physics into this?  But the minute they mention physics, the whole house of cards comes down.  I suspect we'll get some stories about hot weather.

ps.  this guy is the best for stories.  If you want to live your life by stories, then he's the guy.


Cold air fights tropical storm



This is a neat pattern for the warm, moist tropical air.  A storm is trying to hit Toronto, and the cold air is losing.  Also, the Indian ocean is the start of a large tropical plume.  The directions of the winds split at Africa.

The Atlantic plumes are going right to the Arctic and then coming down on us.  All in all, a total chaotic mess.

Cold air interlude after heat wave

The Pacific looks dead, but it is producing one tropical air plume.


I only do these articles when I actually see the cold air in the 7 day forecast. 



We still have a lot of freezing air in a big jelly blob.  That Pacific plume is going to scrape along the edge of it and come down on us.  I'm still keeping my plastic for the tomatoes.  I remember a certain June around 1982 when we had an office picnic.  Absolutely froze!

Warmie heat waves start

Yeah, I was worried we'll have a June of 82, which was horribly cold.


The Pacific Ocean has given up transporting any heat to us.  Thus, we have no action in the tropical air plumes.  This leaves us exposed to 'Continental Air' or what I call 'Default Weather'.  This means early 'Warmie Heat Waves'.  I'm reading the articles, and they are so happy!  Let's forget the charts (ice age) for now.

At the cottage, it is a blackfly nightmare.  We are going up again, and we hope our 'airforce' of dragonflies decides to scramble.

ps.  this is when I shut down on warmie bashing.  They own the summer.  I'll start when the snow starts from November to May.  Meanwhile, earthquakes seem to be picking up, my other 'love'.

Wednesday, May 20, 2020

Cottage Report - May 20, 2020


We could go up on Tuesday after the long weekend.  Here is a picture with no oak buds out yet.  The blackflies are horrible!  I can't even sit on the porch in my net-jacket.  You just can't see with the bugs in front of you.  Gives you a headache, and they are all trying to worm into tiny gaps.

I'm giving this a rating of 10, which means worst in 10 years.  It's just like the 70's with the cold weather, and needing a fire at night.  That's also 10 years.

The consequence of an ice age is a very short hot season.  We should have at least one killer heat wave for the warmies to love.

This is back to 'average' weather for the cottage.  Those who bought cottages based on the last 10 years, are due for a lump in the tummy.  Sad.

Almost time to start the fire.

ps.  today, we are calling 'Total Blackfly Nightmare'.  It's so hot that you can't work in nets.

Saturday -- the first dragonfly just zoomed by my head, picking off blackflies.

Car of the future

Reference


Ok, if the world followed physics, then this is the car of the future.  There is nothing like an electric car, but the charging sucks.  This is the logical progression of my hybrid cars.  Methanol can be made from natural gas.  No windmills needed.

Of course, don't buy the first one.  And if you invest, this is venture capital odds.  It depends on the whole warmie thing collapsing in the face of general cold.  Many articles now on 'Global warming is cooling.'  Just stories and no physics-based charts.  However, in two years, I see this effort falling on its butt.  I just see the average person saying:  "Wait a second!"  Maybe not, even after covid, people will love their influencers.  :(

Pacific current shows minor reversal - May 18, 2020

The currents are from May 16, but just came out today.  In the summer we usually have no Pacific tropical plumes over us, so we get stagnant or 'locked in' weather.  That gives us our biggest heat waves.  Yeah!


We had a big reversal over the winter, and we still have a huge amount of cold air up North.  That stuff just wants to roll over us.


You can see in the East, clear cold air is trying to push away our warmth.  At least we won't get the big storm.  The Pacific plumes are still not organized into a pattern.  If that big plume hits the Yukon then we'll get the cold NW air, like all during May.  I hope not.

In general, the ocean currents are still on track for an ice age cycle, major or minor.

You can see with the sea surface temperature anomaly (today's temp subtracting the average) that our major northern currents are cold.  There is what they call 'The Blob' of warmer ocean under Alaska, but that water is still very cold.

Increase or decrease over average.




The Gulf Stream warmth has moved down south a lot.  The central Pacific belt is cold, and warmth has moved south of the equator.  If the ice age progresses, we'll see all the heat energy moving south.  Yuck!  Just like our recent warming spell, all the action of up and down temperatures is in the Northern Hemisphere.

ps.  the temp anomaly map is in warm and cool colours.  It's only like 1 or 2 deg C up or down.

Stagnant Pacific Plumes Give Us Spring



The ocean breezes moderate our weather, and when they stop we get 'default' weather, which is just caused by the Sun overhead.  Now we can plant tomatoes.


But it is still very cold over Northern Canada.  That's why I am keeping my poly tunnel plastic cover handy.  If the plumes go back to the May pattern, yuck.

In July, the ocean breezes always stop.  Very hot and lots of stories about global warming.

Ozone replacements suck

Reference


Without physics, we descend into madness.  We are now at a state where every single replacement *, dreamed up by the leftie English Majors, is making things worse.  They join the Bible Trumpers as the biggest losers of all time.  :)

We know that nutsa jumped whole hog into this because it sounded good, and shed the shame of the shuttle.  Nutsa saves the world!  However, their own people with the atmosphere chamber told them that the famous chlorine reactions can't take place at -96degC, and near-vacuum.  Who'd a thunk it?

Now, you would think that any substitute would be checked in the atmosphere chamber.  Who knows what happens in the stratosphere?  But no, nutsa torched that thing, and replaced all the earth people with venus people.  So now we have a rain of deadly chemicals.  Good job, people!

Linux -- Cleaning the disk with k4dirstat

Linux handles it's own fragmentation, but you get huge left-over files down a few directories, behind hidden files and directories.  I was amazed at how my main disk (solid state) was clogged up.

So, get K4dirstat from the main repositories.  You actually have to open a directory or a disk.  That stumped me for a long time, since there are no manuals.  Duh!

When it stops reading, it gives a really nice picture of the files on the disk.


It's so cute and you can click on each rectangle, and it shows you what the file is.  Then, if it something you don't want, you can delete it.  Neat!

Marina cottage access now open

Thanks to Doug Ford, cottage access is now open for those 'who want to check the plumbing'.

Our cottage access is through a marina because the rock is too wild to have a road.  But we won't go up on the long weekend.  Since there is always something broken with my plumbing, I want quick access to the local hardware store.  This weekend looks to be warm which means a zillion blackflies and you have to work with nets on.  The poor dog can't wear a net.  :(

As well, the weather breaks on the weekend, so it is time to get in the tomatoes under poly tunnels.  The warmth is coming from a pulse from the Gulf of Mexico, and the main weather pattern looks to resume with nasty freezing temps.  blah.  Can you say 'frost in June'?

ps.  Monday morning.  A great May screensaver.


Arctic ice volume stuck in a holding pattern


All winter we've had a strong Pacific current pushing over the North Pole.  That created the big thin channel down the middle.  What's weird is that the ice volume curve has gone flat and is tearing into the old lines.  Another sign that it's cold.

The chart represents ice volume for this year (black) and the ice volume curve for previous years.  Arctic ice volume is the most reliable ice chart since satellite radar can penetrate it and get a daily volume.  It has a nice floor of saltwater to bounce back the signal.

The continental ice sheets like Greenland and Antarctica do not give such a clean signal.  So, when they say that ice is losing volume, it is the usual warmie story.

If we are starting an ice age, then that black line goes right through the other curves, and sets a new summer record.  Eventually the Arctic ice packs up all year.  Then the ice starts on land and stays all summer.  Good thing that won't really happen.  But we can easily have a cycle that feels just as cold, like the famous 'Little Ice Age'.

In a few thousand years, when all the land bounces back up from the last ice advance, we will have a new ice advance during a major ice age cycle, and then it locks in.  That's my hypothesis, easily tested with physics.

Polar Vortex Fake News

Every report has the polar vortex coming down to freeze us.  This is complete physics garbage, but it makes a good story.

The pv is a big spin at 30 km in altitude.  This year it went down to -96C, and caused the biggest ozone hole in the modern era.  So, what's it like at 30 km?  It is Outer Space for all intents and purposes.  If the evil guys spaced you at 30 km or out by the moon, you wouldn't notice any difference.  :)

Articles love to talk about wind velocities up there, but there is virtually no air, so no energy.  The big warmie story is that it 'comes down' to affect the weather.  But no energy means no effect.  Again, it's like yelling 'You're letting the cold in."  as opposed to "You're letting our expensive heat energy out."  Only one is correct.

Reference


Now I thought all the warmies would give up on the 'Polar vortex brings us cold' crap.  Nope.


Using physics I had predicted a cold winter.  But the mini El Nino fooled me.  There was a huge ocean current reversal over the winter.  That brought us a lot of heat energy.  But that was only below the 49th parallel.  Up north, it was colder than ever and no tropical plumes touched it.

Thus, my second prediction of horrible cold, since that cold air mass had to break up.  Wouldn't it be nice if it just stayed there?  Nope.  The tropical plumes, which are the only source of heat energy for the north, had to start hitting this cold air mass.  Down it came on us.

The warmies also go on about how the jet stream holds in the polar vortex.  Blah.  The jet stream is just a boundary effect between hold and cold air masses.  It's like your shadow, very obvious, but it can't do anything.

The advantage of 'blaming' the polar vortex and jet stream is that it has nothing to do with heat energy and physics.  Thus, they can go full out with global warming in July.  They will say that physics ended in 1850.  And everybody will suck it up.

ps.  The number one cry of the warmies was that all the physics was done in 1850, when they looked at the infrared absorption of co2 in a small bottle.  This destroyed all the physicists.

Coming ice age may get rid of Cherry Trees



I sprayed the fruit trees with water tonight in a hope that it will save the blossoms.  In Toronto we are going to -5C.  So I just wanted to read a nice warmie story.  They always use stories instead of charts.  It makes me feel warm and comfy.

If only we could live on stories forever.  But tomorrow I'll have to crack the ice out of the buckets.  I don't mind not going to the cottage on the May long weekend, because I probably couldn't start the water pump, because of the risk of freezing.

Even as the ice crunched over Toronto 10,000 years ago, I'm sure somebody could have reported a story about heat somewhere in the world.  I shall dream of it tonight.

ps.  if you want a review of 'polar vortex' do a search in the box on the right.

Ocean currents May 6, 2020


The Pacific Current is straight to the west.  No reversals at all.  That means cold for a long time, unless we get more Gulf air.

Normally we get more warmth when there is a reversal.  Not going to happen for a while.  We'll always have July.

ps.  snow outside right now.

Zoom Physics - Nuclear -- The Chinese Finger Trap


Yeah!  I like doing these things.  Don't ever raise this issue with anybody in charge.  None of them know physics, and they have instant denials at the ready.

I always do these things so that not many people understand, and denials are easy.

Since they are duplicating everything the same, they are still at the edge of chaotic instability and huge damage.  I give it 50% chance that they will get destruction even with the 7 vane pump.  We can just wait and see for them to pump it up full blast.  It could also be completely quiet, or the same level of vibration for a short life.

ps.  I'm not doing anything on the solution because of the fact there is a reasonable chance that everything is perfect.  It can all go into the mists of time.




Sail through covid with cannabis

Reference


As you can see on utube, I make my own high-cbd stuff.  This was essential to get me through my early covid, aka horrible bronchitis.  It stopped the pain, and confined the virus to the upper lung.  My relative (who doesn't touch it) (and gave covid to me) had it deep.

My neighbour with bowel crone disease has it completely stop with this stuff.  But she ran out suddenly and it came on her hard, so she had to go to the hospital and get a hunk of steroids.  Nobody likes being on the big corticoids. 

We had another friend with big headaches and he couldn't sleep.  Poof!  But this article makes it clear that you can't use the purified oil from the store.  Buy the cbd buds and make it yourself.

Toronto housing drops like global temperatures



I've always predicted this since the Chinese left the fluffy market two years ago.  But, we had other speculators and airbud people, so the market hung on forever.  Now it has dived, and I don't think it will come up again for a while.  It usually takes about 5 years.

I think this will shake out those with several houses.  The luxury condos have always been mostly empty.  Can people hang on through this?  I'm always wrong, but I don't think so.

ps.  and the final kiss of death


at least the laytoncommies will be happy.  :)
