NYC did NOT come close to breaking the New York State Rainfall Record

September 29, 2023, at 5:00 pm.  Posted pursuant to the U.S. Fair Use Act (17 USC Section 107)
1 of 3} The media kept calling it the "record rainstorm."  It was now the new normal caused by the burning of fossil fuels.  The reality is that it was caused by El Nino's predictable effect on the Atlantic Ocean.  It was the New York City rain of September 28 & 29 (2023), and it was the result of the remnants of a sub-hurricane phase cyclone, called a tropical storm.  The tropical storm's name was Ophelia.

2a of 3} The New York State rainfall record is 13.57 inches in 24 hours of time.  That event occurred on August 12-13, 2014 (nine years ago), at Islip, New York.  The notable feature of that 2014 rainstorm was that five inches of it came down in one hour's time.  

2b of 3} The highest recorded rainfall amount for the recent September 29th (2023) rain storm was 8.64 inches.  This occurred at JFK International Airport.   Now, 13.57 minus 8.64 =  4.93.  Therefore, the  24-hr rainfall total for Friday, Sept 29, 2023 was 4.93 inches BELOW that of the New York State record.  It was 36% lower than the 2014 rainfall.  Furthermore, the Sept 29th rainfall was also below the 24-hr rainfall record of 44 American states.   Thus, it was no major Doomsday event in any capacity.

Intro 3 of 3} Keep in mind that this is an El Nino year and that El Nino carries with itself the power of wind shear.  In 2023, Hurricane Lee was the prime example of El Nino's wind shearing power.  Tropical Storm Ophelia was not immune to El Nino, as well.  Being that physical matter can neither be created nor destroyed, the water formerly carried by Tropical Storm Ophelia had to go somewhere in the physical universe.

Time for a Reality Check 

The irony at hand is that, on September 29th, Islip NY received only 1.13 inches of rain.  That amounts to 12.44 inches LESS THAN Islip's record-setting rain day of 2014.  In addition, the distance between Islip and the JFK International Airport is 29 miles.  Thus, the "Great New York City Rainfall of September 2023" wasn't that widespread of an event, when you count area ... when you count square miles or even square kilometers.

At this point, compare NYC in late September 2023 to [1] Alvin Texas' (Houston area)  42 inches, in 1979 ... [2] Massies Mill Virginia's 27.35 inches, in 1969 ... [3] Hackberry Louisiana's 22 inches, in 1962 ... [4] Kauai Hawaii's 49.69 inches, in 2018 ... [5] South Port North Carolina's 23.56 inches, in 1999 ... [6] Saco Maine's 19.19 inches, in 1996 ... [7] Hogees Camp California 25.83 inches, February 1943 ... [8] Dauphin Island Alabama's 32.52 inches, in 1997 ... [9] Americus Georgia's 21.1 inches, in 1994 ... [10] Hurricane Jean's effect on Florida, in 1980, to the tune of 23.38 inches.  

Let's do the One-Picture's-Worth-a-Thousand-Words thing, with the following photo

The photo below --- which happens to be posted pursuant to the U.S. Fair Use Act --- is said to be that of New York City, on September 29, 2023.  Yet, it looks similar to a part of Chicago I used to drive-through.  None the less, in the grand scheme of existence, NYC did have above-average rain, for a day or two, this past September.  But, it did NOT have anything epic or legendary.   Yet, the Climate Hysteria People were using this very temporary event as a part of their propaganda.

In light of the present-tense weather propaganda, can you see what's blatantly wrong with the photo below?  Can you see what's wrong, in light of that fact that the photo was posted to show "massive NYC flooding?"  
Well, look at all the cars and trucks in that photo, other than the dark blue one on the righthand side which is submerged in water, almost up to its headlights.  Other vehicles in that same photo are not underwater, except for maybe an inch or less of rain water.  Other vehicles there are not underwater, at all.  Plus, there is the four inches of rain water covering the tire sidewalls of the red pickup truck in the center of the photo, making a splash as it makes a lefthand turn.   Yet, you could still see the license plate on that pickup truck.  This means that the water was not at a high level.

You can also see the license plate on the white VW located directly behind the dark blue car.  It's certainly not submerged in rainwater.  The row of vehicles on the lefthand side of the photo are not underwater, either . . . except for maybe a quarter-inch of rain.  There is even a human being on the street, on the righthand side of the photo --- near a row of parked cars ---  who is NOT submerged in rainwater.   She is standing somewhat near those two white SUV's in the background --- a car width or two away from the two white SUVs which are not at all submerged in rainwater.  In fact, the cars parked behind the white VW --- on the righthand side of the photo --- are also NOT submerged in rainwater.  So, what's the big deal here?

All in all, the terrain that was photographed was entirely uneven, and publishing such a photo as something indicative of NYC on September 29 was & is entirely DISHONEST.   Not much is underwater in that photo, when you look at the background of it ... and everywhere else on the photo. The general rule is that, if you can still see the license plates on most of the vehicles in a photo, then you're not looking at much of a flood.  New York City is not Venice, Italy.  So, quit acting like it is.  

This is amazingly petty, when comparing September 29th to real floods.  Yet, schoolchildren are told to fear such incredible pettiness.  Real floods are the He Huang Floods of 1887, 1931, and 1938.  Epic floods include the Saint Mary Magdalene Day Flood of 1342 (which see) and the Saint Elizabeth Day Flood of 1421.  They also include the Saint Lucia Day Flood of 1287 which killed 50,000 to 80,000 people in the Netherlands.  Epic floods do NOT include the September 29th, 2023 New York City rain.

BTW, the Catholic Church calendar had a number of saint's memorials each day, for each of the 365 days of the year.  Thus, a weather disaster would be named after the most famous memorialized saint of the day.  So, don't get superstitious over the fact that every weather disaster in the Medieval Period and Renaissance Era was named after a saint.  It was a way to tell time ... to keep time ... to record time ... to archive events.   Let us continue: 

New York City did NOT have anywhere near the rain that fell during the Great Mississippi Flood of 1927 --- or the 71.8 inches of rain that fell on Reunion Island, in 1966.  But, it was above-average rain, for NYC.   For example, in an approximate 36 hour period, Brooklyn got 7.34 inches of rain.  Midtown Manhattan got 6.09 inches.  Central Park received 5.80 inches, and Harlem got 5.21 inches of rainfall.  And, as was previously mentioned, JFK International Airport received 8.64 inches, and 4.82 inches of rain fell on La Guardia Airport.  

The "record breaking rain" of September 29 only broke a few LOCAL RECORDS.  At the least, New York City schools should have been shutdown for that day, for the safety of schoolchildren & teachers.  

The Climate Con Artist Photo Gallery

That photo is reminiscent of a certain CNN reporter who walked into a water-filled ditch, up to his waste, in order to deceive people into believing that the town he was visiting was still flooded.

It's also reminiscent of a certain Weather Channel reporter looking like the wind was blowing him over, while two youths suddenly entered the scene (on the street behind the reporter), walking very casually, showing that it was not windy at that moment, at all.  None the less, the Climate Change People ... and the news reporters ... have become a gang of fictional actors.  They have become a cast of liars.

All in all, 8.64 New York City inches of rain is not going to make the cut, in the grand scheme of things.  So, you can quit claiming that the "burning of fossil fuels is drowning New York City."  NYC will have less than an 11% chance of rain in the next three days, with a 43% and a 58% chance of rain four and five days from now.  Thus, 2023 did NOT come close to the 1927 Great Mississippi Flood.  The news reporters should not act like it did.  

BTW, the flood water of the Great Mississippi Flood reached a depth of 30 feet.  New York City in 2023 didn't compare to the American Midwest in 1927.

And then there was the matter of the Great Flood of July 1916 which devastated North Carolina.  Again & again, we see that the NYC September 29th, 2023 rainstorm was inconsequential chump change in comparison to a number of other rainstorms and/or floods which actually did bring devastation to such an extent that the lives of numerous people would never be the same again.  

Adding the September 29, 2023 NYC rain to the list of epic rainstorms is an intense insult to human intelligence.  In as much, as far as would go the quintessential "thousand year flood," the candidates would include [1] the Mary Magdalene Day Flood of 1342 (which see), as well as [2] the 1887 Yellow River Flood (China).   

Add to the equation the flood & famine the Year 1315.  Such events were major league floods which occurred when co2 levels were very very low.  The years of sheer tragic climate disaster included 1274, 1281, the 1300s, the Tudor Drought Days of 1540, 1588, the 1600s, the great hurricanes disaster of 1780, the Potato Famine, numerous Medieval & Renaissance famines, numerous Medieval & Renaissance droughts, as well as the Plague years.  The one-thousand year period before the Industrial Revolution were NOT centuries of mild weathers.  There were numerous epic climate tragedies.  The NYC Rain of September 29, 2023 was NOT an epic event in any category.

The "record NYC rain" of Sept 29 didn't  surpass  very many states.  It did NOT even surpass the numbers of its own State of New York.  The media has to hyper-sensationalize everything and terrify schoolchildren in the process.

The Claim of 101F Florida Ocean Water Is 101% Fraud. It was Everglade "run-off" water from the "Taylor Slough" & Mangrove Swamp.

The following has been written by an alumnus of one of Florida's universities.

On July 25th & 26th, media outlets of all categories were reporting that ocean water off of South Florida reached a record-breaking high temperature of 101F, and that this was proof that the planet is in a climate crisis.  The UN Sec-Gen claimed that Planet Earth was now in the phase of Global "Boiling."

The media then mentioned that this 101F reading was at Manatee Bay, as if Manatee Bay were a large and integral part of the Atlantic Ocean.  Therefore, take note that Manatee Bay is a shallow and insignificant shoreline basin that is NOT even worthy to be named on Florida maps.  It's inside of "Barne's Sound," near a Hwy 1 bridge.

Now, the media stated that the 101F reading came from a buoy.  This deceptively made it sound as if the 101F temperature existed three or four miles away from the Florida shoreline.  The reality is that the 101F temperature came from estuary water which, in turn, was actually Everglade run-off water from Mangrove Swamp ... and even water from something known as the Taylor Slough.  All in all, the measurement was that of swamp water, very near shore and near Hwy 1 which is also called, the South Dixie Hwy.   

On the day reported, the true nearby ocean water was 86F, and that was about three degrees BELOW average.  That amounts 15 degrees Fahrenheit LESS THAN the crisis-stage temperature reported.  It's time for some journalists to be fired.    . 

Plus, the media also reported that the area underwent coral bleaching.  Stop there.  Another false light deception.  Penalty marker time.  This only happened in Islamadora which is 18 miles southwest of Key Largo.  It is located on the main archipelago, and it's known for its "fly fishing."  Key Largo is also on the same archipelago.  Across the Florida Bay from Key Largo is Mangrove Swamp, and in between the two places in Cross Keys.  Lots of keys in the Florida Keys, and lots of run-off water too.

Directly below here is a second map, in order to clarify how much of a deliberate farce this 101F report was and is.  The bottom line is that the news media was reporting on SWAMP run-off water ... and NOT Atlantic Ocean water which is technically on the southeastern side of the South Florida Archipelago where one finds Key Largo and Key West.  Furthermore, if you travel southwest from Key West, you will find yourself in the Florida Straits which pass by northern Cuba.
On the map above, Manatee Bay is located where the red circled #4 is located.  Take note that it's semi-surrounded to its east,  by a small archipelago.  North Key Largo is at the top righthand side of this map, on the main archipelago.  Key Largo is at lower central, on the same archipelago.  At the lower lefthand corner, it is written "Florida Bay."  Technically, the whole area, including very insignificant Manatee Bay, is Florida Bay, until you reach the long archipelago.  More technically speaking is that the area east of the famous archipelago is the Florida Straits.  The important feature is that the current of the Southern Florida border travels west to east.  

East of the archipelago is regarded to be the Atlantic Ocean --- the Florida Straits.   The true ocean water there, at the time of the 101F swamp water run-off reading was approximately 84.9F to 86F.   Average for July is 89.1F.

The Hwy 1 seen on the two maps above is actually the South Dixie Hwy.  The locals call it "the Stretch."  That highway --- that "stretch" --- travels over Surprise Lake, into Key Largo.  Then it suddenly becomes the Overseas Highway.  If you go south on the Overseas Highway for 98 miles, you will arrive at Key West.  

And of course, the ocean water between Cuba and Florida is the Straits of Florida.  That water is quite different than ye olde estuary shoreline runoff water.

Quick lesson:  Estuary water is actually where river water meets an area subject to the tides; where river water becomes effected by tidal action --- and where river water mixes with salt water.  The bottom line here is that the true ocean water temperature in the area was 15 or so Fahrenheit degrees LOWER than what was claimed by media anchormen & women who are basically clueless and uneducated in matters of atmospheric science and oceanography.

Note:   The source of this article includes the temperature data from the United States' own NCEI-NOAA.  A reference link to that government entity is posted below, at the very end of this post.

One more preliminary statement, to show the hypocrisy of Climate Hysteria Activists

It's now said that fresh water run-off from the Florida Everglades and elsewhere must stop, or else the Atlantic Ocean's Gulf Stream will have reduced saltiness and will then stop moving --- at least beginning at the 45th Parallel.  This includes the temporary & seasonal ice melt run-off of Greenland.  Okay then, explain to me how the Climate Hysteria activists are in a state of cricketed silence on the following:

During every second of every hour of every day of every week of every month of every year of every decade of every century, for thousands of years:

4 MILLION GALLONS of fresh Mississippi River water has been flowing into the Mississippi Delta and emptying itself into the salty Atlantic Ocean.  How do you explain that the Gulf Stream has been flowing sufficiently and effectively throughout millennia, despite the massive fresh-water contribution made to it every minute for the last 4,000 years?  What is the point in stopping Everglade run-off water, while a much more massive amount of fresh water flows into the Atlantic Ocean hourly?

Concerning the 4 million gallon claim, if you don't believe it, then you need to see:


The Preview-Prelim Stage is concluded.  The conclusion is that a number of media networks need to have their FFC licensing revoked, and certain politicians need to be replaced with people who possess common sense.  We now go to the starting point of the original post - article - report - tutorial - discourse - writing - whatever-you-want-to-call-it  ====>

Another news report which constituted yet another easily provable Climate Hysteria lie

In July of 2023, it was reported that coastal ocean water near Southern Florida reached "the possible record-breaking temperature" of 101F ... or at least 100F.  Stop.  Big lie.  Penalty Marker Time.   Let's get this correct, for the sake of a constantly deceived public.

To start, the actual time when this 101F thermometer reading was alleged to have occurred was July 24th or so.  Available herein are the official coastal water temperature stats for July 28, compliments of the NCEI-NOAA.   

Now, as a preview: The actual coastal ocean water temp at the time was 86 degrees Fahrenheit.   Next:

[1a] The water that was measured was NOT ocean water.  It was NOT "coastal water."  It was estuary water, located between two pieces of land, and NOT located out in the ocean.  The water which was measured (via buoy) is extremely close to the Florida Everglades, on its northwest ... and Florida Bay on it's west southwest.  This translates into marsh water which can be as hot as a sports team's whirlpool in the training room.  And we are talking about a very shallow water basin.

[1b] In other words, the water measured was Everglade Runoff Water, and a few years ago --- I think it was in 2017, if memory serves me correctly --- that same water measured at 102F.  Yet,, nobody was squawking, running out into the streets, screaming that it was the End of the World.  None the less, the water there is very shallow and the area involved is the border between marsh water and salt water.

[2a] Now, the general area involves water that runs through "the Taylor Slough," into the Florida Bay.  The slough, incidentally, was designed to provide water to the Florida Everglades which are located on the Southwestern tip of the state.  

[2b] Also involved is a manmade canal that was built in 1968 and then recently altered.  It's known as the C-111 Canal; the C-111 "Spreader" Canal.  It was originally designed to send water through the Everglades, followed by the water running off at the southern border of Florida.  Next came the decision to prevent fresh water from rolling off into the Atlantic Ocean as much as is possible.  That resulted in the C-111 "Spreader" project which is completely pointless in light of the fact that the Mississippi River, at New Orleans, unleashes 4 million gallons of FRESH (unsalted) water into the Gulf of Mexico per second.  

[2c] This is why it is such hypocrisy for Climate Hysteria Salesmen to obsess people with the seasonal "ice melt run-off from Greenland" (into the Atlantic Ocean), all the while claiming that it's going to cause a Siberian England, the halt of the Atlantic Ocean, and the End of the World.  

[2d] Incidentally, in order to get the Atlantic Ocean to stop flowing, you must stop the rotation of the Earth.  Plus, you must then rid Planet Earth of either all low pressure systems or all high pressure systems.  That is to say, in order to get the Atlantic Ocean to stop moving, you must stop the winds from blowing, as well as stopping the Earth from rotating.  Do you yet see how incredibly asinine the Climate Change activists & politicians are?  They are literally a danger to society, whenever they are in power.

[2e] In addition, the same Southern Florida Everglades Region is quite close to the Dixie Highway which suddenly becomes the Overseas Hwy, upon crossing a bridge.  That highway literally takes you to Key West.  Locals call the Dixie Hwy "the Stretch."

[3a] As far as goes real coastal ocean water in the area which is measured regularly for its temperature, the two nearest places would undoubtedly be Vaca Key and Duck Key.  Now, the temperature of water changes much slower than does air above land.  After all, water has much more heat capacity, and this particular subject is for another post.  None the less, as of July 28, 2023 (July 29 in Coordinated Universal Time), the ocean water temperature near Vaca Key was 86.0F.  The July average there is 89.1F.  At Duck Key, the ocean water was 84.9F, and it's July average is 87.4F.  This was three or four days after the super bogus & hysterical climate news report.

[4] During this time, the ocean water surrounding the United States' southern states predominately ranged in temperature between the low-to-mid 80s Fahrenheit and 90F.  In one rare section near Texas, it rose to 94.1F, and that's it.  Later in the month was a 94.1F off of Louisiana, and that was it.  Nothing else higher.

[5] So, the July 2023 reality is this:  During the general time span when the ocean water temps were said to have reached 101F, they actually were 3.3 degrees Fahrenheit BELOW AVERAGE in one nearby area of coastal water, and 2.5 degrees Fahrenheit BELOW AVERAGE in another nearby section of the Atlantic Ocean.  All in all, that area which was said to have been 101F was actually 14 to 16 degrees Fahrenheit BELOW 101F.  It wasn't even close to what the Climate Hysteria Media claimed.  

This is yet another piece of evidence which shows that the "Global Warming," "Climate Change," "Climate Crisis," "Global Boiling" activists are lying con artists . . . of very low intelligence.  They are of very low intelligence, because it is soooooo easy to catch their lies and con games.  Concerning the fact that all Florida coastal water temperatures were very much BELOW 100F, see for yourself:

Below is the July 28th report.  If I had learned of the 101F temperature report sooner, I would have gone to the NCEI tally board sooner.  

To the righthand side of the government chart (above) are the monthly averages.  This photocopy is "truncated."  It was cut at the righthand side, after the July monthly average column.  At the righthand side of each row's blue-tinted temperature number is the average temp for Jan, Feb, Mar, Apr, May, Jun, and July.  Aug to Dec was cut-out, for convenience.  

All in all, the hottest temp in the Southern Florida waters at the time was 89-90F, around Key West, Florida.  Nowhere was it anywhere near 101F.  As far as goes as any ocean temperature being in the critical end-of-the-world-and-we-are-gonna-die-tomorrow stage:  Nada.  Niente.  Zipparooski.  Nic.  Niets.  Give-me-a-break. Nekas.  Pagh.  Running-on-empty.  Intet.  Xejn.  Take-a-hike, you-taxpayer-thieves.  Nichts.  Faic.  That's Fraud City, baby, and big-ticket frauds belong in handcuffs, for starters.

Now, if you want to see all of the coastal ocean water temperatures around America ... and their monthly average temps for each month ... go to the following site.  There is where you will be able to see if the "Climate Crisis" & "Global Boiling" activists are honest people or a bunch of deliberate liars, in quest of fraudulently gained U.S. taxpayer funding and deceptively gained NGO grants:

February 5, 2024

The Fort Lauderdale storm of April 2023 was NOT a 1,000 year storm. There were far more severe ones on record, in the 16th, 18th, 20th, & 21st Centuries.

Newsflash:  Florida's record rainfall within a 24-hour period did NOT occur on April 12-13, 2023, as the media and Michael Mann very falsely claimed.  That event occurred on September 5, 1950, when the atmospheric co2 level was much lower than it is today ... and when the atmospheric methane level was less than 2 parts per million, just like it is today.  On that day, it rained 38.70 inches near the Tampa area, within 24 hours of time.  

In April 2023, the Fort Lauderdale rain reached 25.6 inches.  A number of American rainstorms in the past century measure higher.  Now, you may call the Fort Lauderdal a "big storm" --- or "a really big storm."  But, it wasn't the only one in the past 1,000 years.  It's on a list of many, one of which was so severe that it literally realigned the coastline of the Netherlands.  The Ft Lauderdale rain of April 2023 was tame in comparison to many other storms of the past 1,000 years.  The Climate Doomsayer always hyper-exaggerate things to the pointing of lying about them.

Thirty years later, on November 11-12, 1980, a total of 23.38 inches of rainfall came upon the Key West international airport ... also in Florida.  In fact, up north in Pennsylvania, the rain of July 17, 1942 was regarded as the greatest amount of rainfall outside of the Tropics, to the tune of 34.5 inches rainfall.  Thus, the April 2023 rain event was not anywhere near a unique or unheard-of "thousand year storm."  

Next comes Texas.  On July 24-25, 1979, a grand total of 42 inches of rain fell upon the Houston area within a 24 hour period.  Plus, in September of 1921, 36.40 inches of rain fell on Thrall, Texas, in an 18 hour period.  An even more rapid water accumulation occurred in 1942, near the Pennsylvania-New York border.  That is when 30.70 inches of rain fell in four and a half hours. 

In addition, on July 19-20, 1997, it was at Dauphin Island, Alabama, where 32+ inches of rain fell within 24 hours of time.  Alabama also got 22-24 inches of rain on another 1997 day, also within a 24 hour period.  Prior to that time, in 1943, California received 25.83 inches of rain within a day's time.  Other states had notable amounts of rainfall within a 24 hour period, also.  Historic fact shows that the Fort Lauderdale Rain Storm of 2023 was and is NOT anywhere near a "thousand year storm." 

Yes, there were photographs of downed light-material structures that were alleged (by the media) to have been caused by the April 12-13 storm.  HOWEVER, none of the damage was able to have been caused by any strong winds.  This is because there were no strong winds there at that time.  The Broward County wind speed was very much below cyclone speed, on April 12 and 13.  

The wind speed of April 12 did not exceed 20 mph.  After 12 noon, the wind speed did NOT exceed 15 mph.  And after 6:00 pm, the wind speed did NOT go over 10 mph.  In fact, at the start of the rainfall, the wind speed was already reduced to 15 mph (miles per hour.)  By nightfall, the wind speed was reduced to a mere 9 miles per hour.   Thus, there were no winds in Fort Lauderdale to tip any highway vehicle.  Bad driving on wet roads can cause such a thing, though.

Then came the 13th of April.  The Broward County wind speed on that day did NOT exceed 10 mph.  In contrast, the historic Hurricane Camille of 1969 had winds of 175 miles per hour.  175 mph vs 10 mph.   Huge difference, indeed.  Look for yourself, to see how exaggerated the media reports on the Broward County rain have thus far been.

Now, it takes 74 mph to declare a storm a Category 1 hurricane, and it takes 96 mph to declare one a Cat 2.  Thus, the April 12th wind was 27% the speed of a Cat 1 hurricane, and only 21% of a Cat 2 hurricane.   The April 13th wind speed was only 14% the speed of a Cat 1 hurricane, and only 10% the speed of a Cat 2 hurricane.  

Even for a mild cyclone, 39 miles an hour is the wind speed needed, in order for the weather authorities to declare the existence of a Tropical Storm.  And of course, the April 12th wind speed of Ft Lauderdal was less than half the speed of a tropical storm at the start of the rain.  The speed then was only 1/4 the speed of a tropical storm, when nighttime came.  All in all, there was no wind on those two days which would cause massive destruction.  So, the burden of proof is on the media, in its claim that $100 million in damages occurred during the April 12-13 rain.  All damage would be limited to water damage ... not wind damage.

It was later claimed that damage was done to 1,100 houses.  However, included as damage costs were the days of work lost by employees of businesses affected by the rainfall.  So, remember that damage costs are NOT limited to physical damage.  Financial damage in the form of "opportunity cost" is included.  "Opportunity Cost" is better understood as "opportunity LOST."  This includes work hours lost; aka "lost wages."

Even moderate hail storms throughout history have been costly to insurance companies.  Yet, none of those storms were called "Thousand Year Storms."  I personally know what it is to return before sunset to my former seaside dwelling, after a Category 1 hurricane paid a visit to it.  In as much, the April 12-13 storm wasn't even worse than a Category 1 storm's aftermath, when viewing the media's April 2023 photography slideshow.  The lack of wind guaranteed that a massive tragedy was not going to happen there at that time.  Thus, it's fraud to call the Broward County rain of April 2023 a "thousand year storm."

As a case study for media deception, if you look through a photograph slideshow of post-rainfall Broward County, you will see one long "tractor trailer" on its side, as if a mighty windstorm blew it over.  You will also see a van on its side, as if it too were blown over by a mighty wind gust.  Well, you can see in the chart above that the April 12th & 13th wind speeds were too slow to blow over any motor vehicle.  Slick roads and bad driving, as well as slick roads and the effort to avoid bad drivers, can cause a motor vehicle or two to be turned on their sides. 

In 20-35 mph winds, the only way in which a tractor trailer is going down on its side is IF the box trailer is empty, while the truck is going around a curve, and the wind hits the truck broadside.  Remember, disastrous storms are perfect storms that have the ingredients mix all at once.  The ingredient of wind was absent on April 12 & 13 in Broward County.  It was no thousand year storm.

Moreover, there is more of a population on American coastlines today than there were in the 1920s.  There is much more coastline infrastructure in America, too.  Thus, there are all the more buildings and homes to get caught in storms.  And due to the failure of the Biden administration, prices have been jacked-upward.  This means that it costs more today to do post-storm repair work than it did 5, 10, and 15 years ago.  Such an economic fact might deceive people into thinking that the storms are worse today.  There has not yet come into existence even the rare occurrence of the Cat 6 hurricane, as was erroneously prophesied by the False Prophet, Al Gore, in his 2006 movie.  Today, it's simply a matter of things having become more expensive to fix.  That's all.

Concerning the April 2023 Fort Lauderdale Rain

The type of cloud mass which brought the rain used to be called, "an Anvil Cloud" which is ironically very dry at the top.   Today, it's called a "supercell," and such a name is an attempt to hyper-sensationalize something that has been happening throughout the centuries, only to make it sound so scary that people will demand the US Congress to shell-out billions of more taxpayer dollars to the weather & climate people who always predict doomsday, but whose doomsday predictions NEVER materialize.

Technically, such a cloud is a cumulonimbus cloud that was formed in the middle altitude of the Troposphere, but which began to grow upwards into the high altitude zone, almost to the ceiling of the Troposphere.    The ceiling is called the Tropopause, and it's actually the boundary between the Stratosphere and the Troposphere.

Even more technically speaking, a supercell is regarded as a thunderstorm which has a "mesocyclone" within it.  This means that the center of it is an updraft that travels like a cork screw.  It actually starts from horizontal wind shear which causes the corkscrew motion.  The draft then turns upside, being that low pressure rises.  The anvil shape at the top is a weather gauge, revealing the direction of the wind at high altitude.

Tornadoes can form in an anvil cloud (supercell.)  None the less, the "forward flank downdraft" is where the rain travels.  Meanwhile, the "rear flank downdraft" is where the wind unleashes.  All in all, being that supercells are "hybrid storms," they are NOT limited to one predictable type.  These are custom-built storms.

The April 12th storm wasn't deadly.  In contrast, the 1887 Yellow River Flood (Huang-Ho River Flood), in Qing China, killed 930,000+ human lives.  Plus, there were multiple catastrophic Yellow River floods throughout history, all transpiring when the atmospheric co2 level was very low.  The April 12, 2023 Fort Lauderdale rain compares to none of those floods.  The temporary flooding did NOT even rise above the height of a compact car, in April of 2023.  And then, the water dissipated very swiftly.  

There was no receding of water, being that this was wide open, unimpeded flat land.  There was run-off into guess-where.   Oceans are gigantic, and there is such a thing as low-tide.  Low Tide on April 12 was at 7:38am and 8:06pm.  On April 13, it was at 8:48am and the at 9:19pm.  Thus, April 12 saw no "1,000 year storm," or even a "50 year storm." 

 Johnstown 1889.  A true catastrophe, caused by the neglect of a dam located 15 miles northeast.   The 2023 Fort Lauderdale Rain, in comparison, was little league and harmless, being that there were no components for a disaster there. Deadly storms are perfect storms that have the needed variables for destruction.  Fort Lauderdale didn't come close to doom.  The Missoula and Palouse River Flood of 15,000 years prior was the epic flood; not Fort Lauderdale 2023.

Pennsylvania ... a place much closer to Florida than is China ... had some of the most powerful flood waters in history.  In fact, the April rain of Fort Lauderdale doesn't begin to compare with those waters.  On May 31, 1889, 1,600 Johnston buildings were simultaneously demolished and swept away, by the power of 16 million tons of water which created a 40 foot high channel of raging water, a half mile wide.  The water was traveling at 40 mph.  And it was the result of negligence; not the burning of fossil fuels.

Perhaps you have heard the claim, year after year, that "last year's level of co2 has been the highest in the past 6 million, 12 million, or whatever million years will cause shock & submission in the "little people" who never studied atmospheric science.  Well, this was true for every year since 1815.  It was true for 1915, as well as 2015.  Despite the hundreds of record-breaking co2 years, the world has not yet come to an end, and no mass extinction event occurred --- since 1815.  

Incidentally, an 1815 volcano caused the 1816 "summer that never was."  And of course, it was caused by the so2 released by the volcano ... the 13,000 foot high Mount Tambora, in Indonesia.

 Incidentally, the number 1 instantaneous killer of mankind, in terms of natural disasters, has nothing to do with the atmosphere or the oceans.  The Number 1 killer has been . . . earthquakes.  Next comes famine, and then comes floods.

The April 12th storm's biggest impact was very limited in area.

The 25.6 inches of rain (later amended to 5.91 inches) on April 12 (2023) only fell upon an exceptionally small piece of Southeastern Florida real estate, according to NWS prelim records.  The real estate that surrounded the 25.6 inch (25.91 inch) rainfall zone was visited with much less rain at the exact same time.  Observe one of the NOAA & NWS (National Weather Service) prelim reports:    

~ Slightly South of  the 25.91 inch rainfall zone, only 7.22 inches of rain fell.  That equals  28% of 25.91 inches.  Slightly Northwest of it, a mere 4.20 inches of rain fell, and that constitutes only 16% of 25.91 inches.  

~ Slightly north of that zone, at Fort Lauderdale proper, no more than 6.11 inches of rain fell.  One step further south, in Hollywood Florida, it rained 9.82 inches, and this number only equals 38% of the heavily advertised 25.91 inches that fell upon a very small patch of Broward County land.

~  Directly West, it rained 6.59 & 8.14 inches. ---  One step further southwest, at Pembroke Pines, it rained a mere 5.16 inches.  One step further northwest, it rained 9.60 inches . . . all occurring in 24 hours of time.   

In fact, at Pompano Beach, it only rained 3.39 inches.  At Boca Raton Florida, it only rained 2.24 inches.  And at Miami proper, there was a range of 3.51 inches to 4.92 inches of rain.  Meanwhile, down on Miami Beach, it rained no more than 2.02 inches, on the exact same day.

Such numbers are not Thousand Year Events --- or even 150 Year Events --- or even 75 year events.  Now, this hyper-exaggerated doomsday report, in my opinion, was Michael Mann's attempt to rationalize and justify that outrageously exorbitant 370 BILLION taxpayer dollar allotment recently made to less-than-honest activists & scientists (as well as activist scientists.)  That Congressional allocation was done in the name of an apocalyptic climate crisis that certainly does not exist any more than a climate crisis existed throughout in the 1500s or  1700s, or even the 1900s.  

The 25+ inch rain of Apr 12, 2023 only fell on a small patch of Florida land, with the neighboring areas getting much less in the same time span  This shows that the media and Michael Mann lie and lie and lie, again and again and yet again.  Furthermore,  25+ inches in 2023 is NOT Florida's record.  38.70 inches in 1950 is.

Florida has 67 counties, while the United States has 3,243 counties (including Louisiana parishes).  A fraction of one county getting a lot of rain for only one day, while the surrounding patches of land only get 2/3 to 1/2 to 1/3 to 1/5 of that amount, is no climate crisis.  You gotta do better than that, if you want people to believe that the world is soon coming to a watery end.  

A second NWS prelim report for Broward County, April 12-13, 2023

Now, this one makes a list of 11 places that have much higher rainfall numbers.  They are simply places much nearer to the Fort Lauderdale 25 inch zone.  In fact, 5 of the 11 places contain the name Lauderdale or Lauderhill.  That's compact geography.

Now, when viewing the NWS prelim report below, keep in mind that the NWS Miami twitter account admits that a portion of the rainfall numbers on its Apr 13, 9:30am tweet are NOT regarded as official numbers --- that some are numbers gathered by volunteers, and that the numbers came from several sources.  No matter what stats or illustrations you view, only a small patch of land ... relatively speaking ... was involved in the April 12, 2023 rain.  There were far worse flooding events and longer consecutive rain days in the 19th & 20th Centuries.  This was already addressed ... with examples ... at the Blue Marble Album.

The most important thing is that climate is "the prevailing weather TREND," ... usually throughout the most recent thirty-year period.  A mere 24, 48, or 72 hours doesn't indicate any kind of trend.  Something so short in time is an event for the insurance adjuster and NOT a trend for the real estate investment firm.  

As far as goes climate indicators from real estate investors and developers, the coastlines still have the investment green-light.  There is no coastline exodus known to be occurring.  In fact, I spent ten years at the Atlantic coastline, and I repeatedly saw firsthand how the climate doomsday predictions showed no sign of materializing in any degree of reality.  The coastline real estate investors didn't see it, either.  All that I saw was . . . consumer demand for the coastline ... for the beach ... for the daytime sea breeze.  People kept coming and coming and coming some more.  There were no climate refugees needing to take flight from there.

Any one-day event has zero bearing on climate.  There is less than 1/2 of 1% of co2 in that sky out there, and in the same sky methane exists at LESS THAN two parts per million.  During the Cambrian Explosion, when sea life inclusively & vastly came into existence, there literally was 16 and two-thirds times MORE co2 in the sky.  You need to quit doing your Al Gore impersonation of his climate-doom-coming-tomorrow routine.  It is assured that the end of your world (on this Earth) will come a whole lot sooner than will the end of "THE WORLD."

10.22 inches of rain is still only half of the 25.91 inches placed in neon lights by the Bill-Gates-friendly press.  The April 12th event was NOT a long-term, repetitive event.  Going tunnel-vision on one day's rain is defined as "the media doing some cherry picking," with the intent of terrifying school children so much so that their parents will be effected and then demand hundreds of billions of more taxpayer dollars to be tossed into the hands of the climate doom scientists who have thus far been completely wrong in all their predictions, dating back to 1970.   

The specific predictions of climate doom, massive crop failure, and drowning coastlines have been addressed in other texts.  All in all, the Maldives are still there.  The Great Barrier Reef is still there.  Summertime Arctic Ice is still there.  The glaciers of Glacier National Park are still there.  The Daytona Beach and Miami Beach coastlines are still there.  Etc, etc, etc.

As far as goes the world record for the most rainfall to have transpired in a 24 hour period:

It occurred on January 7-8, 1966.  It rained 71.8 inches on Reunion Island, in the Indian Ocean, east of the island known as Madagascar --- which is east of the African continent.   And of course, the Year 2023 minus the Year 1966 = 57 years ago;  NOT 1,001.

As far as goes the longest dry period:  Between October 1903 and January 1918, it did not rain in Arica, Chile --- which is located 11 miles south of the Peru border.  That dry spell occurred 105 to 120 years ago.  That rainless dry spell lasted for 15 years.

In fact, during 1913, in Death Valley USA, the hottest temperature ever recorded was recorded there.  And the years 1920 to 1922 were years of drastic heat and glacier melt, including the melting of Arctic sea ice up to the 82nd parallel.  As a comparison, know that the North Pole is at 90 degrees.  Thus ice melt occurred 8 latitudinal degrees from the North Pole, in 1922; 101 years ago --- NOT 1,001 years ago.

Moreover, the Years 1927 to 1943 were years of massive forest fires in the western United States.  In addition, 1934 was the year of the worst drought in a thousand years, according to NASA.  Meanwhile, 1936 had the hottest summer on record.  So, you lie when you say that the worse weather conditions are occurring today.

Compliments of the U.S. National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration.  One correction needs to be made:  Florida's record is 38.70 inches, accomplished on September 5, 1950, during Hurricane Easy. 

Of all the years which can be categorized as the year of the Thousand Year Storm, it is without a doubt . . . 1931, when the atmospheric co2 level was 307 parts per million, and therefore, 73% of today's atmospheric co2 level of 424 ppm.   Rainfall from June to August, along with a build-up of silt & sediment, caused the Yangtze River Flood of 1931. Deaths directly resulting from the flood numbered 400,000+.  Deaths resulting in a dominoes-effect was an additional 2 to 3 million.

Yet, 47 years prior to the 1889 Johnstown Flood was the Indus River Valley Flood (in Pakistan).  It hosted the most disastrous flood in modern history.  It included 100 foot high flood waters.  In fact, also in 1841 was a flood on the Salisbury Plain of England, called the Great Till Flood of 1841, referring to the Till River.

Then comes the Great California Flood of 1862, when it rained from December 9, 1861 to January 20, 1862.  Flooding extended into Idaho, Washington, Nevada & Utah.  4,000 died from the flood, during a time when the atmospheric co2 level was very low and when the human population there was also low.

If you want to know of additional epic storms and/or floods in the past 1,000 years ... in comparison to the non-deadly, chump change Fort Lauderdale Rain of April 2023 ... then familiarize yourself with any or all of the following storms, and know this:  Both Michael "hockey-sticks" Mann, & David Attenborough lied every time they asserted that the weather in the past 1,000 years was mild & stable.  

BTW, if you ever see David Attenborough or Michael Mann in a restaurant or any public setting, IGNORE THEM AND LET THEM BE.  Do NOT even hurt their eardrums by yelling at them.  Write or speak in detail about their falsehoods, for the sake of those who have been deceived by these non-truth-tellers.  The following list shows that Attenborough and Mann are blatant liars, in their claim that the weather was calm for 1,000 years, before the start of the Industrial Revolution.  They should know better:

~ The Divine Winds of 1274 and then 1281 which utterly destroyed two different armadas (military fleets) of Kublai Khan;   ~the South England Flood of Feb 1287, annihilating Romney Marsh & Winchelsea;   ~the December 13,1287 St. Lucia Day Flood effecting the Netherlands;   ~the Grote Mandrenke, aka the St. Marcellus Day Flood of Jan 16, 1362, hitting England, the Netherlands, Germany, and Denmark;   ~the St. Felix Day Flood of Nov 5, 1530, killing 100,000+ in the Netherlands;   ~the Bristol Channel Flood of 1607 - 200 sq miles flooded and 2,000 people washed away;   ~the 1780 Philippines Typhoon, killing approx 100,000;   ~the 1824 St. Petersburg Flood (of Russia);     ~the Coringa India Cyclone of 1839, destroying 20,000 sea vessels at port and killing 300,000;   Plus . . .

~ The Heppner Flood of 1903 (Oregon);    ~ The Great Mississippi Flood of 1927;   ~ The Ohio River Flood of 1937;   ~The 1911 & the 1935 Yangtze River Floods;   ~The Yellow River Flood of 1938;   ~The Rejputana Flood of 1943;   ~the Great Appalachian Storm of 1950, impacting 22 American states;   ~Hurricane Camille, 1969;    ~the Boha Cyclone of 1970, (Bay of Bengal), killing 500,000;   ~the Bangladesh Cyclone of 1991, killing 138,000+, while effecting 10 million with homelessness.   

There are a lot more, but the above-cited are enough to get your heads out of the brainwashing machine into where Michael Mann dunked it.   These all show how the April 12 rain of Fort Lauderdale is completely chump change.  It doesn't even rank ... rate ... count.  

It's just that the Michael Mann People were looking for a "scare," in light of their recent prophesies of doom failing; namely those of an apparently healthy & exotic Australia and a replenished American West.  This is why ... in my opinion ... you now hear the petty report of added occasions of air turbulenceee in modern aviation, allegedly being caused by the 1 part per 8,000 parts increase in atmospheric co2 over the past 125 years.  Do you mean to tell me that that's the best Michael Mann and Al Gore can do, in scaring mankind into submission?  

Below here is a world record rainfall video that mentions many heavy storms and NASA data tampering, as well as droughts and heat waves that made many a newspaper:


The New Fear-Mongering Tactic of the Media

The media continues to deceive the civilian body politic, presenting a new climate deception as soon as the current one gets exposed or fades away with no lasting impact.  For example, as of May 2023, the media started reporting that the extremely small amount of co2 in the sky is causing more air turbulence with airline flights.  The simple answer to this assertion is that there are far far far more airliners in the sky today, everyday, than there were 30, 60, and 90 years ago . . . except during WWII bombing.  Therefore, there is going to be more encounters with air turbulence.

Now, being that I am the son of an airman who paid Adolph Hitler 35 unfriendly visits in a B-24, I can testify that he told me ... in the 1970s ... that air turbulence during a bombing mission was a common thing.  This was told by him during a civilian airliner flight in the 1970s, when the airliner encountered a few seconds of turbulence, thereby frightening everyone on board except him.  His fear was NOT air turbulence.  His fear was that of the guns firing from the Focke-Wulf 152s and the ME 262s in the German sky, as well as flack fired out of 88mm and 128mm German cannon barrels.

The climate crisis media has been doing nothing more than lying to the public.  Its technique of lying has been the use of:  [1] false light disinformation & [2] sleight-of-hand deception.  This was 100% the case with the July 19, 2022 Great London Fire Stats, as well as the climate refugee predictions about an Australia that has recently been replenishing quite well, thank you.  

This incessant deceit of the media ... which is simultaneously in line with Jim Hansen's incessant failure at weather predictions ... included the 35 year old watery doom prediction of the Maldives which has recently built 5 NEW autonomous airport landing fields, to accommodate the tourist popularity of those very healthy, above-water islands.   

This failed prediction is always accompanied by the prediction that the Arctic Ocean will "very soon" be free of sea ice during some upcoming month of August.  Yet, the closest that the Arctic Ocean came to an ice-free Summer was in 2012, when 1.32 MILLION  square miles of ice covered the Arctic Ocean.  

Now, the square root of 1.32 MILLION square miles is 1,148 linear miles.  Thus, the least amount of ice that the Arctic had was equivalent to the straight-line distance from New York City to Omaha, Nebraska ... and then from Omaha to South Padre Island, Texas ... and then from South Padre Island to Miami ... and then from Miami to New York. 

The size of the Arctic is 5.5 million sq miles.  That is equal to flying from Boise Idaho to Boston ... and then from Boston to Panama City, Panama ... and then westward, from Panama City, for 2,340 miles ... and then north, for 2,340 miles, to Boise Idaho.

Let it also be reminded that the glaciers of Glacier National Park were NOT "gone by 2020."

Then comes the matter of the Biden administration deleting from government charts & graphs the massive forest fire frequency of the late 1920s and entire 1930s.  This was done ... in my opinion ... to make the much lesser number of fires since 1983 look like the end of the world.  Today, students fail to realize that the creation of Smoky the Bear campaign in the early 1940s was a sign that forest fires of the 1930s had the attention of an entire nation, due to the traumatic size and even more traumatic effect that those fires had on the American psyche.   Even the extended tragedies of WWII did NOT make Americans ignore the massive American acreage charred by forest fires.  Thus, while Hitler was ripping through Europe, forest fires were ripping through the American West.

You need to understand that Michael Mann utterly failed in his apocalyptic prediction about Australia.  It did NOT become a land vacated by climate refugees, as he confidently predicted  This is because the rains healthfully returned to Australia, along with coral cover that regenerated 2 of the 3 sectors of the Great Barrier Reef, as well as weather conditions bringing back the return of profitable Australian ski resorts. 

Then came the failure of the 2022 predictions of "a prolonged American drought," "added forest fire devastation," and "record heat."  The 2022 doomsday predictions literally got washed away and "whited out" by means of early 2023's rainfall, snowfall, and snowpacks in the American West.  This all happened as soon as La Nina ended.  (See: ENSO.)  

Moreover, the record snowfall in England ... and in Japan, along with record cold in one part of China .. showed the relief that was granted by nature to have had a global effect.  Meanwhile, the accompanying replenishment of American dams also made Michael Mann look like a bumbling buffoon who was clueless to the true climate conditions of Planet Earth.  

If you want to see how far off were the climate doomsayers in their 2022 drought & excessive heat predictions for 2023 and beyond, take a look at:


February 4, 2024

Antarctica's smallest "sea ice extent maximum" (2023) was the size of RUSSIA.

This is an October 2023 NASA satellite product.  Take a look at the vastness & magnitude of sea & land ice that was present at the Southern Polar Cap, during a time when certain propagandists claimed that Antarctica was in an "once-in-a-7.5-million-year" "extreme ice melt."  Well, that's extreme bull crap.  Compare the ice sheet's size to Australia and South America.   
Newscasters of 2023 reported that Antarctica was in the process of "extreme" ice melt during its 2023 Winter Season ... during its six months of sun-deprived darkness.  In fact, one journalist claimed that the Weddell Sea was a melting mess.  Well, the asininity in believing this assertion is that the Weddell Sea comprises 1.08 MILLION square miles of surface area, and its widest section spans 1,200 miles across.  Something that size will not melt while there is no sunlight to melt it.

Furthermore, the Weddell Sea's continuous ice sheet is connected to the Ronne-Filchner Ice Shelf which happens to have the same surface area as does California.  Historically speaking, the gigantic Weddell Sea has been known to have tight ice packs.  Moreover, temps throughout Antarctica are usually -10 to -60 degrees Fahrenheit, during wintertime.  Therefore, to claim that air temperatures were drastically melting Antarctica during the dark & sunless wintertime is to spread two pivotal lies in one statement.  

[1a] The actual fact is that not as much sea ice formed around the Antarctic Continent in 2023, as it did last year ... or the year prior (when Antarctica had its coldest winter in recorded history) ... or during any year of the Satellite Era.  This means that 2023 was declared to be the year with the least amount of MAXIMUM sea ice extent.  Yet, 90% of the sea ice which usually forms around Antarctica each winter did form in 2023.  As you can see in the NASA product above, there is still a super massive amount of ice within ... and also beyond ... the Antarctic Circle.  The concept of "massive ice loss" is a massive lie.

[1bi] Let it be repeated:  The Antarctic Winter of 2023 was NOT a matter of melting ice.  It was a matter of not as large an amount of sea ice being formed around the Antarctic continent as usually forms there.  Even at that, only 10% less was formed there.  There was no "warm air" melting Antarctic sea ice during the Winter of 2023.  Antarctica was simply forming only 90% of the sea ice that it usually does.

The Russian landmass is 6.32 MILLION square miles.  The 2023 Antarctic Maximum Sea Ice Extent was larger than Russia, at 6.55 MILLION square miles.  And 2023 was the year of the least amount of sea ice surrounding Antarctica, during Antarctic wintertime.  The lesson here is that Antarctic wintertime sea ice extent has been massive every year.
[2a]  The lowest amount of "maximum sea ice extent" is not that much less than the usual amount that has been measured, year after year, from 1981 to 2010.  The usual amount of Antarctic sea ice extent is known as the "median."  The median is the middle number in a list of numbers.  

[2b] In addition, "sea ice extent" is defined as being any surface area of the sea which is comprised of 15% or more of ice.

[2c] Likewise, the highest amount of Antarctic sea ice extent ... which occurred in 2014 ... was not at all very much higher than the median --- than the usual amount.  All in all, there was no extreme ice melt in 2023, and there was not even "extreme" sea ice absence in the same year.  Likewise, there was not any extreme sea ice gain in 2014, even though 2014 was the year of the most sea ice area in the Satellite Era.  The hyper-exaggerations must cease on both sides of the equation.  

We now proceed to the Sunspot Cycles Illustrated ... throughout the past.

Notes:  [1] In 1980, during a high sunspot year ... during a sunspot cycle summit ... Dallas Texas had FORTY-TWO consecutive 100F+ days.  [2] The Year 2003 ... a high year for the Sunspot Cycle ... was tragically hot, especially for Paris.  [3] There was a drought in America from 1988 to 1990, and that was during a very high sunspot activity time span.  [4] 1983 was recognized by NOAA as the most active sunspot year, for most of the months in that year.  Go and read about the North American Drought of 1983-1985.  It was during that drought when global warming was first mentioned on TV. 

In going further back into history, the highest sunspot activity between 1600 and 1800 C.E. occurred two years prior to the year of the most deadly hurricane in history.  The deadliest Atlantic hurricane emerged in October of 1780.  It resulted in 22,000 or more deaths.

In the following year, the French Navy made sure that it was not going to get caught in another Caribbean hurricane season.   So, the French fleets travelled northward, to help General George Washington in the Battle of Yorktown.

However, this 1780 hurricane would usually be a contradiction, pursuant to the law of Pressure Gradient Force.  This is because cooler atmospheric conditions are accompanied by the more turbulent skies than the much warmer ones.  So, the question for this event would be ===>  'How much cooler was the Arctic than the Equator at this time?'  After all, the more distant the temperatures between the Polar regions and the Equator, the more turbulence there is.  The point to mentioning this hurricane is that far more destructive natural disasters occurred when atmospheric co2 level was much lower than it is today

In addition:  [I] There was the Blizzard of 1996, during a low sunspot year.  [II] The Winter of 2007-2008 had record cold weather, and that occurred during a low sunspot cycle year.  [III] Accuweather regarded 2009 as having been "defined by snowstorms of historic proportion and record cold."  This was during a solar cycle low.  [IV]  The Winter of 2009-2010 started with a great blizzard.  It also occurred during a solar cycle low period.  

And of course, this is posted pursuant to the U.S. Fair Use Act; 17 USC, section 107.

Added Examples, compliments of the Royal Observatory of Belgium, in Brussels

WWII was known for viciously cold weather during some of its battles.  Bastogne, in late 1944, is one such example.  Below is the sunspot record for 1944, and of course, the index below is posted pursuant to the US Fair Use Act.
Below:  1958 had its share of heat, and the sunspot record of that particular year goes as follows:
The lesson is that, it's very immature, asinine, and narrow-minded to reduced all considerations for climate assessment to the trace amount of co2 that exists in the Earth's atmosphere.  Doing so is merely a ploy to deceive you into thinking that you cannot live without Al Gore and other propagandists whose names aren't worth mentioning.  In reality, the doomsayer projections ... based on computer models and NOT based on observed outdoor reality ... claims that feedbacks will cause a revving-up of heating.  Yet, most feedbacks in nature are negative & depletive; not positive and accumulative.  In the past, cold periods and hot periods came all at once . . . not after a mythological "tipping point" is achieved.

Concerning any of those occasional heated-years not coinciding with the solar sunspot cycle, check to see if it were an El Nino Year.  This includes the El Nino year of 1976, when the solar cycle was at it low-point.  There was a tragic heatwave that year, especially in Paris.

Even though 2014 was a peak year in sunspot activity, it was in one of the lowest Solar Cycles, compared to the other ones in recent record-keeping.  That low-activity cycle was SC24.  And of course, 2014 was the year with the most sea ice extent maximum in Antarctica's modern record-keeping.  Yet, two years prior was the heat wave of 2012.  

Moreover, in the 1700s, co2 was far less in the atmospher than it is today, at 280 ppm.  Compared to today's 420 ppm, co2 was two-thirds of what it is today.  Yet, 1780 was the year of the most disastrous hurricane of them all ... thus far, in human history.   Thus, the claim that major hurricanes are more frequent and vicious today is a lie.  So too is the case with droughts.  

Climate is much more intricate than what the doomsayers claim it to be, as they reduce all consideration of climate to co2 which comprises less than 1/2 of 1% of the atmosphere.  Specifically co2 is 1/2,381st of Earth's Atmosphere.   This means that, for every 2,381 molecules in the sky, only one of them is co2.  That's not very much.  

If you were to compare the atmosphere to the Rose Bowl, then only 42 of the 100,000 seats would be occupied by co2.   78,000 of those seats would be occupied by Nitrogen, and 21,000 of those seats would be occupied by Oxygen.  In addition, argon would occupy 930 seats.

Concerning methane, only one seat would be occupied for every 5 Rose Bowls.  Methane exists at 2 parts per million on Earth, and it ready converts into co2 within Earth's atmosphere.  

Within the atmospheres of Venus and Mars, co2 exists at approximately 960,000 parts per million.  So, compare Mars' 960,000ppm to Earth's 420ppm.  There is literally 2,285 times more co2 on a much colder Mars than on Planet Earth.  Thus, there's no comparison between Mars and Earth, as well as Venus and Earth.

Water Vapor, aka Humidity, is the only greenhouse gas that affects Planet Earth

As far as goes "greenhouse gases," only water vapor carries any weight in this matter.  You have probably heard the phrase, "It's not the heat.  It's the humidity."  Well, the heat is literally in the humidity.  And of course, humidity is defined as "the concentration of water vapor in the air."  Moreover, cirrus clouds have infrared-heat-retaining ability also.  Cirrus clouds are ice.  Take note of the contradiction, where ice in the sky helps to keep the Earth from turning into a globe of ice.

Also keep in mind that one of the three molecular vibrations of co2 causes co2 to be incapable of retaining any infrared heat.  This is why there was an ice age when the co2 count was 9.5 times higher than it is today ... the Ordovician Ice Age.  BTW, the vibrations are called "dipole moments."

As far as goes the total amount of the September 2023's maximum Antarctic sea ice extent, it was literally the size of 81 Minnesotas ... or ...  115 Michigans.   That is NOT extreme Antarctic ice loss in any capacity or in any definition thereof.  You need to realize that you're being conned by the media, by your government, by in-your-face activists, and by scientists who want a share of that $370 billion US Congressional "climate appropriation."

The climate doomsayers hyper-exaggerated the whole thing, in order to scare you into submission.  For people who simply viewed a bit of weather history, by means of looking at archived newspapers, almanacs, weather reports, and magazines, the whole Antarctic Scare was so ridiculous that the "global boiling" people lost their credibility . . . as usual.  Temperatures were extremely hot in 1895-96, 1901, 1905, 1911 (tragic death toll), 1913, 1921-22, 1931, 1934-36, 1958-59, 1976 (tragic death toll), 1988-90, 1998, 2003 (tragic death toll), and 2012, as well as 1757, 1540, 1279, etc, etc, etc, etc.  Climate is cyclical.

[BTW]  Concerning the claim that the "burning of fossil fuels" destroyed the Florida coral reefs, it only takes one hurricane to uproot coral.  That is par for the course.  Moreover, when a hurricane comes and goes, it causes "upwelling."  This results in colder water and life-giving nutrients coming to the surface of the ocean area where a hurricane recently passed-by.  It's the sign of a money-grabbing fraud to blame every weather event on co2 and the "burning of fossil fuels."

[A] Remember, politicians hyper-exaggerate weather & climate circumstances to the point of claiming the existence of a crisis, in order to get taxpayer dollars into their districts, thereby getting themselves re-elected.  Activists do so, in order to get money into their 501C corporations' bank accounts and also into their own bank accounts, as commission salary.  United Nations personnel do the same hyper-exaggerating, in order to get money and influence also.  The whole thing is a money-grab & a power-grab.

[B]  Yet, the vocal & visual media mentions nothing of the real environmental disaster of today, namely =====> the glut of synthetic chemicals thrusted upon humanity, thereby affecting endocrine systems, respiratory systems, DNA chains, vulnerability to cancer development, and additional medical conditions.  Chemical influx is a form of assault and battery on susceptible bodies.  This too was previously explained at this site.  There's a search box at the top righthand side of this page.

[C] In review, the Antarctic "once-in-a-7.5-million-year" doomsday hoax and other climate hyper-exaggerations were a matter of nerd boys, politicians, and in-your-face activists vying for a share of that $370 BILLION (US taxpayer dollar) appropriation made by the US Congress.  The climate crisis town-criers want a chunk of that taxpayer dough.  They want a lot of G.W.s (George Washingtons).  They want Chase Manhattan cabbage leaves ... Crane and Company's finest greenery ... the Bureau of Engraving & Printing's finest scripted legal tender.  Yes, that is what they really mean when they say that they are "going green."  And green they have gone.

Going Green, anyone?   All aboard, as we terrify schoolchildren with predictions of climate woe.
[i] Now, the newscasters & journalists stated that the 2023 "loss of" Antarctic sea ice extent --- when comparing it to the usual "median amount"  --- was equal to the size of British Columbia.

[ii] The newscasters & journalists also stated that the "loss of" Antarctic sea ice extent in 2023 was equal to the size of British Columbia & Alberta Canada combined, when comparing it to the highest amount of sea ice extent ... of the sea ice which surrounded Antarctica in 2014.

[iii] The newscasters and literary journalists reported that the 2023 sea ice extent area was 398,000 square miles less than the previous record-low year of 1986.  And of course, this is literally the square mileage of 5 Minnesotas ... or ... 7 Michigans.  It's also the size of the Western African nation of Mauritania.  It surely seems like a lot of missing ice, until you realize how much sea ice extent did form around the Antarctic Continent in the Winter of 2023.  Observe:

 2023's Sea Ice Extent Max       The median Sea Ice Max         The 2014 Sea Ice Max

   6.55 MILLION sq miles             7.23 MILLION sq miles         7.72 MILION sq miles

Now, the difference between the most sea ice extent ever recorded during the Satellite Era and the least amount is 15.2%.  That is to say that 2023's sea ice extent was 84.8% of Antarctica's known record high.  This also means that the 2023 Antarctic Sea Ice Extent Maximum was the size of ELEVEN British Columbias.  The size of the 2023 Antarctic sea ice extent max was also equal to 25 Alberta Provinces.   It's furthermore 7.88 times the size of British Columbia & Alberta Province combined. 

For the record, British Columbia's land area is 574,884 square MILES.  The land area of Alberta Province (Canada) is 255,541 square MILES.  Together, both provinces comprise  830,425 square miles.  That happens to be the size of Greenland.  This means that the least amount of wintertime Antarctic sea ice extent was the size of SEVEN & a half Greenlands.  Greenland is 836,330 sq miles in surface area.  BTW, Saudi Arabia is the size of Greenland, in surface area.

Furthermore, the difference between the highest Wintertime sea ice extent and the usual amount (aka, the Median) is 7%.  Yes, the usual & expected amount of wintertime Antarctic sea ice extent is 93% of the record-breaking 2014 high.  Then there is the matter of 2023's sea ice extent being 90% of the usual Antarctic sea ice extent maximum.  Now, 90% of 7,230,000 square miles is a lot of ice.  Where is this "extreme ice loss?"

In review, NASA and other entities long since stated that it's expected for 85% of the wintertime Antarctic sea ice to melt, by the end of the Antarctic summer.  The same agencies stated that it's normal for 60% of the wintertime Arctic sea ice to melt, by the end of the Northern Hemispheric summer.  Thus, at the end of Antarctic summer, approx 15% of the sea ice should be remaining.  At the end of Arctic summer, a third of the Arctic wintertime ice should be remaining ... and less will be remaining during an El Nino year ... and also during the high year in the 11 year sunspot cycle.  (The sunspot cycle is a discourse of its own.)

Antarctica's South Pole & Dome C (southeastern AQ) in September of 2023.

It's not exactly April in Paris, boys & gargoyles.  When you pack for your trip to Antarctica, you do not need to take any suntan lotion ... or sunscreen.  The temperatures on the two calendars below here are 2023 temperatures.  Well, 2023 was supposed to be a once-in-a-7.5-million year Antarctic meltdown.  The two temperature calendars below show the opposite.

We continue with "the math"

It is a pivotal lie to claim that Antarctica has been going through a trend of ice loss and temperature increase for years.  This is because the coldest known wintertime in Antarctic history occurred two years ago, in 2021.  This, alone, destroys the entire co2 narrative.  CO2 was on the rise for decades, before & while Antarctica had its coldest known winter in history.  If the "CO2 Narrative" were true, then Antarctica would not have come close to having had its coldest winter two years ago ... or four years ago ... or six years ago ... or 26 years ago.

Plus, the Antarctic Peninsula is a lot closer to Chile than it is to the South Pole.  The distance between the South Pole and  the Antarctic Peninsula is 1,550 miles (from Rothera Station), 1,712 miles (from Vernadsky Station), and 1,840 miles (from Esperanza Station) to the South Pole.  Thus, one expects the Antarctic peninsula to be less cold than the interior sections of the 5.4 million square mile Antarctic Continent.  Part of the Antarctic Peninsula is outside of the Antarctic Circle.

Antarctica is a desert.  There are places there which have not received rain or snow in extremely long time spans.  Both Polar Caps of Planet Earth are high pressure & dry air convention cells.  Furthermore, when you have extremely cold weather, you have dry air.  

Now, a newscast claimed that the 9.5% less of the wintertime sea ice median harms penguins.  The claim was that penguins need ice to spawn a new generation of penguins.  Well, penguins look for dry land, in order to enable them to keep their eggs warm.  If you want penguins to become extinct, make sure that all of the Antarctic Continent is under a sheet of ice.

Now, look at the NSIDC's October visualization for Antarctica below.  You will see a lot of area occupied by ice.  There is no super massive Antarctic ice loss transpiring.  The Antarctic climate hysteria is merely a pathetic attempt at con artistry.  These people should be sued for gigantic amounts of money in a class action lawsuit, for the Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress, especially upon the schoolchildren they have been unjustly terrifying since 2006 and the showing of Al Gore's absolutely pathetic science fiction movie.  

BTW, the glaciers on Kilimanjaro do NOT undergo melting.  They undergo "sublimination."  That's when ice turns into water vapor without first melting into the liquid state.  I've already explained sublimation at this site, in another discourse ... in another post.  There's a search box above, to the right.

Federal Communications Commission

Those climate-hysteria entities should also have their FCC licenses revoked, based on "failure to serve the Public Interest."  The doomsday scientists, activists, and politicians are inciting violence, in telling weak minds that the world will soon come to an end, if you let people use gas stoves.  

There is also the matter of the False Claims Act which involves whistleblowers filing a civil action in federal court.  The original complaint is then kept confidential for a short period of time, and there's more to mention about the procedure.  It can be learned online ... or in a law class.  I don't have the time to explain it.  Others have already done so.  

BTW, when a False Claims Act complaint is filed, keeping it temporarily confidential is known as placing the complaint "in camera."  This refers to being kept in "a private chamber," so that no one can read it.   In Latin, it was known as "in pectore," meaning "held to the breast," so that no one could it.  Some American legal language needs to be changed, pursuit to the change in language since the 18th Century.

The thesis statement is that you are being lied-to massively.  All you have to do is look at weather history & newspaper archives, NASA satellite imagery,  NSIDC visualizations, an atmospheric science book or two, a bit of oceanography textbook material, etc.  

When you find the textbook material, look up [1] Pressure Gradient Force (as in Baroclinic and Barotropic stability/instability,) as well as Eckman Transport & the Coriolis Effect.  All in all, the media and certain scientists ... along with in-your-face activists ... think that you are far too lazy to read and far too stupid to understand anything that you read, anyway.  Yet, the material which proves their assertions to be blatant falsehoods is easily attainable at present.  The politicians, activists, and scientists see themselves as superior minds, possessed with the ability to cleverly trick you . . . to trick you, a member of "the little people."  

Yes, you're the "little people."  The problem is that they are the stereotypical high school, [1] nerds, [2] dorks, [3] wedgie-boys, [4] dweebs who repulsed us during our high school years.  And of course, they are still creeping us out, to this day.  Are you going to let nerd boys dictate your life?
