This is my Not Happy face

It is August 14 AND WE HAVE THE CENTRAL HEATING ON. And not for the first time. Seriously, this is ridiculous.

We have had four whole days of weather in the 80s this summer, and the BBC keeps banging on about warmest month since records have been kept. I can’t even imagine how they’ve tortured the numbers to promote that lie.

I’m no meteorologist (and certainly not a climatologist, which I gather is what you call yourself if you’re a meteorologist who believes in global warmening), but it’s cold in here. And getting colder. The little I’ve read about sunspots and natural climate patterns leads me to believe we’re headed for something like a little ice age.

I’m not happy about this. I don’t like being cold and I certainly don’t look forward to being a cold old lady.

You know what, though? I wonder if there are deep state actors who are getting off on this. Not the grassroots true believers, but the shadowy bastards who make up our lords and masters: pushing the idea that the planet is burning up while we’re all shivering in our August cardigans. It’s just their sort of perverse.

Picture is a local beach today. Nicked from social media. You can nick things from social media, right? Don’t people relinquish exclusive rights when they post online?

Are those dragon prowed longships I see on the horizon in that photo?

(and now the Middle Age version of climate change, there was nothing they couldn’t do & no place you could hide, then again, they were REAL)

On a more happy note – here’s the elite plan for us as far as future air travel to help fight global warmingcoolclimatesendusyourchange.

Some bugs need to be worked out, but trust them! This has “sure thing” written all over it!

I understand. We’ve had a week of “Triple Digits” as the weathermen gleefully proclaim. Add a few digits more for the heat index, and it’s hot. But it’s also August in Texas.

I’d happily trade a Las Vegas summer for one of yours. Been here nigh 30 years and I still hate them.

I’d happily trade a Las Vegas summer for one of yours. Been here nigh 30 years and I still hate them.

I’ve lived in, and hated, this Lousy-ana hellhole most of my life, except for the 4 years when I escaped to Colorado. Ten-month summers, humidity that would drown a rat, occasional whirling storms on top of that — and yet people here bleat that they stay “for the food! And the music!”

Ha. Food can be had and prepared anywhere; music can be had on CD or DVD. Smooth streets, low crime, low rents, high employment, and people with an IQ over 80, well, you have to actually go there to experience them.

Sorry, I got off the track. The point is, the weather (and the whole environment) here stinks, and if it weren’t for air conditioning, the few sensible people here would already have left. Including me.

Many did flee after Katrina. I wish I could have joined them.

I have trouble accepting the initial premise behind (to use its maiden name) Global Warming.

I hesitate to believe that you can take an area the size of the earth’s surface – where temperatures range from 50 degrees below to 140 degrees above zero – measure those temperatures in a finite number of locations, extrapolate from those places to cover the entire area, combine them and then create a meaningful “average temperature for the planet”.

I note that last year was ‘the fourth hottest year on record’ for the planet. However, it was only there fourteenth hottest for the United States.

Imagine how hot the rest of the planet must have gotten if a land mass the size of the United States came in as its 14th hottest, but the earth as a whole managed to reach its 4th hottest.

The phrase “On Record” deserves its own rant, but instead I’ll just toss in a quote from Forbes Magazine in 2012.

”Raw temperature data show that U.S. temperatures were significantly warmer during the 1930s than they are today. In fact, raw temperature data show an 80-year cooling trend. NOAA is only able to claim that we are experiencing the hottest temperatures on record by doctoring the raw temperature data.…

“The bureaucracy at NOAA and NASA who report the U.S. temperature data undertake what they term “correcting” the raw data. These corrections are not just one-time affairs, either. As time goes by, older temperature readings are systematically and repeatedly made cooler, and then cooler still, and then cooler still, while more recent temperature readings are made warmer, and then warmer still, and then warmer still.…

“Science blogger Steven Goddard at Real Science has posted temperature comparison charts (available here, and here) showing just how dramatically the NOAA and NASA bureaucrats have doctored the U.S. temperature data during the past several decades. As the before-and-after temperature charts show, government bureaucrats with power and funding at stake have turned a striking long-term temperature decline (as revealed by the real-world data), into a striking long-term temperature increase.”

Here’s something to cheer you up Stoaty.

Send the cold here, okay? My AC puked the first significantly hot day. Then I broke my wrist, had surgery and I’m still off work and I can’t afford to fix it. I hate summer under the best of circumstances. And this is not that.

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
