Oklahoma’s Tornadoes Caused by Global Cooling — 1975 Theory

Written by Gary North on May 21, 2013

There is a simple explanation for the tornadoes in Oklahoma: global cooling. That was hot stuff in 1975.

James Hansen, an up-and-coming climate scientist with NASA in 1971, laid the groundwork with his computer model that showed that a new ice age was coming. Hard to believe? Click here. Today, he is the most famous of the global warmers — sorry, “climate change” scientists.

As for tornadoes in Oklahoma, the ever-alert Real Science blog posted this clipping.

This year, Oklahoma is having the coolest spring on record. The number of tornadoes is up. Last year, it had the warmest spring. The number of tornadoes was low.

OKtemp

The Democratic Senator from Rhode Island, Senator Whitehouse — I am not making this up — blames the Republican Party for the tornadoes. The Republicans are deniers regarding man-made global warming, you see.

So are 31,400 Scientists.

As for the fact that there has been no change in atmospheric temperatures since 1998, this proves nothing, we are assured. Nothing.

  1. Heat alone does not create storms; storms are caused by temperature differential. The upper atmosphere heats and cools faster than the planet's surface. This inconvenient scientific fact can be observed on Jupiter, Saturn and Mars, which have huge cyclonic storms (storms bigger than planet Earth), even though their temperatures are 100's of degrees below zero.

    Al Gore needs to read this!! He is such a fool, til he has duped the government into believing the world is getting hotter –but Al, it has always been hot in summer!!! Such an idiot!!!

  3. Al Gore is neither a fool nor an idiot. He is making money from these lies.

  4. Sheldon Whitehouse needs to take a deep breath and relax. He is only grandstanding at the expense of other peoples peril

  5. The "Tri-State Tornado" in 1925 was the most violent single twister in U.S. history. It caused the deaths of 689 people and injured over 2,000. Property damage was estimated at $16.5 million.

  6. Al Gore is still a fool. All the money in the world is worthless in hell and that is where liars go. "The fool in his heart has said there is no God". There has been heating and cooling cycles throughout the earths history, but, there are people today like Al Gore that want to keep people ignorant of the historical past and take advantage of the peoples lack of lack of knowledge in order to enrich themselves and make themselves into demigods. The fools!!!!

  7. Seymour Kleerly says:

    Equating the validity of Cliimate change and or Global warming with Al Gore is pathetic. Turn off Fox News and think of your grandkids.

  8. Randy G says:

    All government Bigsh*ts make money from lies.

  9. Only a fool or an idiot would believe anyone arguing against global warming is making money from it. Would love to see someone explain how that works.

  10. Marc Jeric says:

    Al "Jazeera" Gore was caught with a prostitute in a hotel room; his adored wife of 30 years of ideal marriage left him.

  11. Looks like someone isn't the only one that needs to turn off their TV.

    http://www.realclimate.org/index.php/archives/201… It never fails that those who have no idea what they are talking about cherry pic statements from any place and any time to back a claim. The evidence is so overwhelming among Climate Scientist that the question about global warming is not who/what/why but now is how fast/how dramatic. Al Gore is not a climate scientist. All he did was attempt to make what was happening understandable. A few tornado outbreaks here and there is nothing new. Increasing severity and frequency are only by products and happen slowly. Cool temps in Oklahoma and else where is not an indicator as well ..and for that matter neither is a heat wave. But when added together GLOBALLY tthe temp is going UP! Most of us are old enough we can continue to use the cheap fuel that has fed our prosperity without repercussion. Our survivors will reap what we have sown …so don't worry…enjoy the ride.

  13. The biggest problem with the myth of global warming is that mankind has an extremely inflated sense of his own importance (just look at the kind of people who go into politics). People want to believe that something is true — when all empirical evidence points to the opposite — and when their most cherished misconceptions are hit by scientific fact, they go into a state of mind known as cognitive dissonance.

    I'm old enough to recall when politicians (not scientists) and bureaucrats (not scientists) were predicting with absolute certainty 10 years ago that snow would be a thing of the past by now, and that we would have to describe snow to our grandkids, or show them pictures of what a snowstorm looked like….even as we come out of the very long winter we just had (due to arctic air getting colder) and watch as snow still falls across portions of North America as I write this.

    Global warming zealots are akin to cultists who (again) believe in an agenda so strongly that nothing, not even scientific fact, will sway them away from their beliefs, which take the place of knowledge. I believed in the Easter bunny as a kid, but I know better now. 😉

  14. "The evidence is so overwhelming among Climate Scientist that the question about global warming is not who/what/why but now is how fast/how dramatic."

    Wrong. http://www.economist.com/news/science-and-technol

    " But when added together GLOBALLY tthe temp is going UP!"

    Wrong again, to quote the article.

    OVER the past 15 years air temperatures at the Earth’s surface have been flat while greenhouse-gas emissions have continued to soar. The world added roughly 100 billion tonnes of carbon to the atmosphere between 2000 and 2010. That is about a quarter of all the CO₂ put there by humanity since 1750. And yet, as James Hansen, the head of NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies, observes, “the five-year mean global temperature has been flat for a decade.”

    "so don't worry…enjoy the ride."

    Haha, totally not worried, and I so enjoy the ride and correcting your laughable errors.

  15. Seymour Kleerly says:

    I'll trust the 90+ % of scientists than the polluters and their defenders on Fox. It ain't rocket science.

  16. Seymour Kleerly says:

    Only the Polluter's make the money. Joe Sixpack just stupidly follows marching orders from Fox News and Talk Radio.

  17. I think there is an obvious reason for the tornadoes ….. OBAMA! Well, if President Bush was blamed for Katrina, then this is, ….. how shall I say it ….. obviously "Obama's Fault"!

  18. NOTE TO The TEA Party Economist: Why the censorship?

  19. Dale Hogue says:

    The average everyday kind of Democratic Party member has an average everyday type of intellect. He of she can be fed most anything that appears to give the Democratic Party a political advantage over any other political philosophy in the world and he or she will believe it no matter how outlandish and stupid it appears to be to the rest of the world's population. That's a fact. I don't need to prove it, because it proves itself everyday of the year. President Barack Hussein Obama counts on this in order to bring about those changes to our government that he and his puppet masters believe will give them control of every citizen of this Constitutional Republic. If you like challenges, prove me wrong, that is, if you can. Dale Hogue

    Have you been sippin rthe koolaid again or still???

    Those "90% of scientists" are getting grant money in the MILLIONS for saying what is politically correct.

    As someone else said Gore and his companeros are making money hand over fist hornswoggling the
    gullible.

  21. Roland W says:

    There is only a few people in the above comments know who is in charge. God made the heavens And Earth Don't you think he can control the weather even tho we the people mess things up. God can and does fix things. I can give you some good example but most of you have stop reading by now..

  22. Seymour Kleerly says:

    Scientists are thinkers and not Greedmiesters unlike our Corporate class who's ONLY interest is profit! Gore was born an Aristocrat with millions and cared about the environment over three decades ago! The "someone else" you refered to, was probably from Fox News in the POLLUTER PROTECTION PLAN!

  23. Seymour Kleerly says:

    Why did the atmosphere disappear from Mars? This is why Religious fundamentalist are quite scary and like Bush, ignore the facts.

  24. Re: Seymour Kleerly,
    — Scientists are thinkers and not Greedmiesters —

    You sound so sweet when you say things showing such naiveté, Seymour. A if scientists were not greedy themselves, that is not human.

  25. Seymour Kleerly says:

    I'm not greedy. Teachers and the clergy are not greedy. Firemen and cops are not greedy. Social workers are not greedy. Musicians and artists are not greedy. Most decent people are not greedy. The only job of Corporations are to maximize profits for there greedy shareholders. Pollution controls are an EXPENSE to be avoided in their book.

  26. C. Norris says:

    "I'll trust the 90+ % of scientists than the polluters and their defenders on Fox. It ain't rocket science. "

    What is FOX and their friends reporting that you believe to be false"

  27. Man, this place is littered with a special kind of stupid.

    Wallace Smith Broecker coined the term "global warming" in 1975 in a paper he published called “Climate Change: Are we on the Brink of a Pronounced Global Warming?”

    Read that again. "Climate Change".

    That's what it's been from the start, that's what it's always going to be. It's going to have ups and downs, highs and lows – that's the crux of the matter. CHANGE.

    Anyone who's still stuck on calling climate change a hoax because someone decided "global warming" sounded more dire is profoundly moronic and should quickly and immediately pull their collective heads from their rectums.

  28. Religious fundamentalism is a frightening thing. That's what leads to things like the Muslim Brotherhood and Christian Evangelism.

  29. LOL. You people continue to throw out Obama's middle name "Hussein" as if it's some kind of curse word or something. It's a middle name. Get over it. The rest of civilization has.

  30. "Man, this place is littered with a special kind of stupid."

    Shane litters this website often.

    "That's what it's been from the start, that's what it's always going to be. It's going to have ups and downs, highs and lows – that's the crux of the matter. CHANGE."

    Climates are always changing Shane, always have, always will. Anyone making dire predictions about it and claiming humans need to stop producing carbon dioxide because climates change is…what did you call it…oh yes, special.

    "Anyone who's still stuck on calling climate change a hoax because someone decided "global warming" sounded more dire is profoundly moronic and should quickly and immediately pull their collective heads from their rectums."

    You first Shane.

  31. Marc Jeric says:

    16 years of cooling have transformed the globaloney warming hoax into the climate change flim-flam.

  32. Seymour Kleerly says:

    You will NEVER see or hear a pro environment , anti-polluter sentence, segment or thought on Fox News. Most pro-polluter guests are simply paid by Right wing think tanks or straight from the energy industry. This should not be hard to understand.

  33. Seymour Kleerly says:

    You're joking I hope. Corporations have lied about environmental damage for over a century in order to avoid expensive regulation. If profit is their ONLY goal, why would anything change. They're even more effective now with Talk Radio and Fox News stalling regulations as long as possible. Greed Rules!

  34. Seymour Kleerly says:

    Well that certainly proves there's no global Warming. Ignorance must be bliss.

  35. Who is the "you" you're referring to, Seymour?

    Don't confuse those who argue AGAINST global warming, in favor of action, with those who argue FOR global warming, against action. That latter group is making money off of doing nothing. Scientists ain't gettin' rich telling the truth, you know?

  36. The damage in the Moore tornado has already topped $2 billion. On that measure, it was worse than the Tri-State.

    Heck, the tornado the week before in Granbury, Texas, is pushing $100 million.

    Sure, there are occasional powerful tornados. Global Warming theory suggests that warmer air will produce more violent storms. We had one Force 4 tornado in the first 75 years of the 20th century. We've had two in the past week, in 2013. Don't forget Joplin, and don't forget Xenia.

    Evidence suggests something is up.

  37. The fool in his heart says Al Gore is a fool. There have been heating and cooling cycles throughout history.

    Never before has there been a period of three consecutive years above the 20th century average temperature. Every year since 1996 has been above the 20th century average — 17 years in a row.

    Yes, CO2 has been higher than 250 ppm in the past. But never has any human survived a century above 300; and no human has ever survived a decade of 400 ppm CO2, ever, in history.

    Last time we had these conditions, no humans survived. Of course, no humans existed, either — but it's foolish to say that these conditions are not a problem. That's not what history shows.

    P.S. Al Gore is a Baptist, studied to be a Baptist preacher. If you're claiming Gore says there is no God, you're wrong about that, too. Gore's made it clear his concern is for human survival in good condition. Wish you shared his worries about people. What would Jesus do?

  38. Bush was blamed for his lack of work to do anything AFTER Katrina. A lot of people died in Katrina; more died in the three weeks after, when almost nothing was done to save survivors.

  39. The average everyday kind of Republican Party member has an average everyday type of intellect. He or she can be fed almost anything that appears to give the Republican Party a political advantage over any other political philosophy in the world and he or she will believe it no matter how outlandish and stupid it appears to be to the rest of the world's population, and no matter how contrary to science it may be. That's a fact. I don't need to prove it, because it proves itself everyday of the year. Sen. Mitch McConnell on this in order to bring about those changes to our government that he and his puppet masters believe will give them control of every citizen of this Constitutional Republic. If you like challenges, prove me wrong, that is, if you can.

    Warmest decade in history, and you deny what's before your eyes, Mr. Hogue.

  40. More laughable nonsense, this time from Ed Darrell, quoting an analysis three years out of date.

    Here is what NASA has to say now in 2013.

    And yet, as James Hansen, the head of NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies, observes, “the five-year mean global temperature has been flat for a decade.”

    Better luck next time Ed.

  41. Seymour Kleerly says:

    You're very confusing. Do you follow the Fox News "polluter Protection" line or the pro-Environment, scientific one? Night and day!

  42. Seymour Kleerly says:

    That's because his goal was to eviscerate Fema and as much of the Government he could.

  43. Seymour Kleerly says:

    The anti-Science deception by the GOP. will be the final nail in their coffin. GREED is not good!

  44. That notion would help prove global warming and will see stronger storm and precipitation (including snow) as heat is trapped around regions where people live yet it still colder at the polar regions.

  45. There's more money chumming up to Big Oil and denying climate change.

  46. Randy G says:

    They want to blame it on anything, BUT, they forget –"It's not nice to fool with Mother Nature."

  47. Johnny Genlock says:

    Ideology, not science, Ed Darrell. Global Warming adherents practice Circular Reasoning by only listening to their own bevvy of experts. But, . . . Houston, we have a problem. The bevvy of experts is fracturing. Google: Mar

    New Discovery: NASA Study Proves Carbon Dioxide Cools Atmosphere

    So, . . we are not going over the Global Warming lemming cliff. Instead, we are going to freeze our butts in a new Ice Age. But let's be perfectly honest. This always was and still remains a money scheme. I would venture if hell freezes over you'll still faithfully vote for a Carbon Tax, right?

    Now, are we going to prosecute Global Cooling deniers?

  48. it's all caused by H.A.A.R.P . not mother nature.

  49. Jesse Gilbert says:

    The lady blames resistance to bad science on Fox News? So called scientists have been making bogus claims to line their pockets for decades before the existence of Fox.

  50. These global looneys are going to make people crazy.

  51. your retarded…

  52. Big Al's no idiot… bastard is rich as sh*t from selling carbon credits to politically correct idiots (Gang Green)…. Big Al 's just a snake-oil salesman…

  53. I only lose when others reject science.

    Too much CO2 is deadly — acutely, in very high concentrations. Indoor air standards allow up to 1,000 ppm, but there is noticeable performance decline and potential illness at 600 ppm — we used to regard that as insanely high, but achievable in a crowded, poorly ventilated room. With ambient outdoor CO2 at 400 ppm, we exceed the threshholds indoors much more often. No big worry — it doesn't start to be acutely fatal until over 10,000 ppm.

    CO2 is a particularly effective greenhouse gas. It captures heat energy and stores it, sometimes reradiating it. This is what makes it useful at levels below 200 ppm, to keep the planet warmer than it would be otherwise. The GHG effects of CO2 were first explained about 150 years ago, and unless you know some new twist of physics, it still stands as it has for 150 years that more CO2 means more warming in the air, wherever CO2 exists. My "last point" is not only completely established to the point that it's in the textbooks and the journals it was originally published in are ancient documents, but there is absolutely no counter research.

    Cooling effects of SOME weather is stronger than greenhouse gases. Until 1972, climate and atmosphere scientists recognized that some air pollution cools the planet, while other air pollution warms it. The cooling stuff, particulates and aerosols, were controlled and greatly reduced in the U.S. by the Clean Air Act, after 1972. Most of the world adopted similar standards simply because of the great benefits to health.

    But that created a bit of a monster. Until 1972, cooling pollutants offset the effects of warming, greenhouse gases. Since then, the GHG have been left unfettered by human pollution (a couple of volcanic eruptions helped cool things for about 36 months total since 1972.

    Spence does not deny that CO2 warms. It is true that water vapor is a great GHG by quantity, but it is also true that a vapor feedback loop limits it — if it's cool enough, water vapor forms clouds, which reflect heat back into space before it can strike the ground. This feedback loop is interfered with by CO2.

    The planet may have been almost this warm in the past, for a year or two at a time. We've had 15 years well above that Middle Age warm period. That period was NOT driven by CO2, but by more natural cycles, the Milankovitch Cycles, and others. Among other indicators of the dangers of CO2 now is that those cycles have been smoothed out — we should be in a significant cooling cycle since about 1900, but temperatures keep rising.

    Humans don't always "do better" when it gets warmer. The drought in the Midwest in the 1930s demonstrated that we can indeed alter climate, and that forced tens of thousands of Americans to flee, ruining many thousands of lives, and killing many hundreds with new diseases. Crop production shrank to zero.

    No human has ever survived any period of time when outdoor CO2 was more than 350 ppm. No human has ever before survived a year with CO2 above 400 ppm. Today CO2 is above 450 ppm. Historically, you don't have a leg to stand on to claim we aren't all doomed.

    Higher CO2 levels increase plant production, especially among weeds which crowd out wheat and other cereal grain crops. They produce conditions favorable to pests that destroy beneficial trees (4 million acres in Colorado conifers have been lost to warming-advantaged pine bark beetles — that's one state alone). Enriched CO2 has not proven beneficial to any commercial crop in the field. In the lab, without competition from weeds, without drought, more CO2 may be beneficial. In the field, it doesn't work out that way.

    We're all losing, due to the misinformation someone gave you that caused you and others to sit on your hands.

    Air pollution is a bad idea, period. Don't try to put polish on that turd. We need to control CO2, and the sooner the better. We hope it's not already too late.

    Yes, the planet has gotten warmer over the last decade. Instead of the wide fluctuations we have seen over the past 50,000 years, the past decade has continued at above-20th-century-averages. Overall, that has boosted average temperatures over time considerably, but to pretend that an oven at 400 degrees is "cooling" because it doesn't climb to 450 degrees, is fiction.
