HadCRUT Data Reveal the World is (Mostly) Cooling

Contrarily to what hastily announced at Bali and acritically repeated in news reports including on the BBC web site, the published HadCRUT data strongly support the notion that warming has stopped, globally.

The month of November 2007 has been:

In terms of global sea-surface temperatures, the 2nd coldest November since 1994, and the coldest month since January 1997.

In terms of southern hemispheric sea-surface temperatures, the 2nd coldest November since 1988, and the coldest month since January 1997.

Regarding northern hemispheric sea-surface temperatures, the 2nd coldest November since 1996, and the 2nd coldest month since March 2001.

In terms of global land temperatures, the 2nd coldest November since 2000, and the coldest month since January 2001.

In terms of southern hemispheric land temperatures, the 2nd coldest November since 1989, and the 2nd coldest month since January 1993.

Regarding northern hemispheric land temperatures, the 2nd coldest November since 2000. and the 11th coldest month since January 2001.

Records broken and almost-broken in most sets, but on the cooling side…is that perhaps why there has been no indication of the above in news releases?

The Uncomparable Life and Death of the Most Famous Pakistani Leader

Whatever one could think of her and her many defects, there will undeniably be a time-before and a time-after the death of former Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto.

And that should be enough to establish that she wasn’t just “the daughter of <somebody>”.

Even her assassination has been a very special event. Gunshots followed by a bomb? Virtually unheard of. Al Qaeda it ain’t! As things stand now, it’s more likely that the bomb has been the tool used to “cancel the fingerprints” of whoever ordered the shooting.

Sadly, that means the Pakistani Government is the most likely culprit.

One definitely wonders what has gone so wrong in the past 60 years, to make the inhabitants of the Land of the Pure so keen to kill each other.

Travaglio-Gomez-Corrias: Turbinio A Sinistra

Marco Travaglio, insieme agli evidentemente meno querelati Pino Corrias e Peter Gomez, tiene un blog di politica italiana “Voglio Scendere” sul Il Cannocchiale.

La prima cosa che viene in mente e’ che se qualcuno volesse davvero “scendere” dal carrozzone Italia, ci sono decine di Paesi europei dove emigrare senza aver bisogno di un permesso di lavoro…chissa’!

Quello che si nota comunque nella pagina che mostra oggi i blog dal 3 al 27 dicembre 2007, e’ che i Nostri non hanno ancora stabilito se il sottotitolo del loro sito debba essere “Tutta Colpa di Berlusconi“, oppure “Tutta Colpa di Tutti i Politici” oppure “Aspettiamo Con Fiducia il Partito Democratico (e nel frattempo, buttiamo un po’ di fango su tutti gli altri)” (un atteggiamento, quest’ultimo, perfettamente speculare a quello di chi nel 1993-94 si avvicino’ al Cavaliere “a scatola chiusa”).

Il risultato e’ un turbinio di commenti in principio interessanti quanto assolutamente di parte e quindi. in ultima analisi, pleonastici.

Invece che una denuncia del malcostume italiano, “Voglio Scendere” si avvicina pericolosamente ad esserne uno dei tanti sintomi.
