That’s the logical conclusion, right?

I mean, if a stray bird from warmer parts of the northern hemisphere is found much farther north in traditionally cooler climes, and it is blamed on global warming

A bird of prey spotted flying over Larne Lough has been confirmed as the first sighting of the rare Montagu’s harrier in Northern Ireland.

And the birdwatcher who caught sight of the harrier believes climate change may have played a part in bringing it to more northerly climes.

The birds may be starting to appear further north because of climate change, he said.

“As the temperature goes up, they are getting pushed further and further north. There are things happening – it’s definitely global warming that is pushing them further north,” he said.

 

…then the inverse must be true too, right?

An example:

SEATTLE (AP) — A ribbon seal commonly found in the frigid waters off the coasts of Alaska and Russia has been spotted twice in the Seattle area.

It’s quite unusual to observe the animals this far south, said Peter Boveng, leader of the polar ecosystem program with the National Marine Mammal Laboratory, part of the Alaska Fisheries Science Center in Seattle. “There are not many people who see these regularly.”

The ribbon seal, likely a young adult male, appears to be in good shape, though not as fat as expected, said Boveng.

The seal first showed up one morning earlier this month on the dock of a Seattle woman, who lives about a mile up the Duwamish River south of downtown.

Then last Friday, it was spotted on a snow-covered dock in Marysville, about 35 miles north of Seattle. A snow and ice storm had hit the state, leaving snow piled high in many parts of the region.

Ribbon seals inhabit the northern North Pacific Ocean and sub-Arctic and Arctic seas. They are found in the Bering and Chukchi seas off Alaska and the Sea of Okhotsk off Russia. They have distinctive white bands or ribbons that encircle the head, base of the trunk and two front flippers over a dark coat.

Since it is commonplace among the media to blame  any finding of species farther north than they normally would be (or south in the Southern Hemisphere) on global warming, is there any speculation by the media that this ribbon seal swam 1500 miles south to escape global cooling?  None.

To be sure, I’m not suggesting that this ribbon seal swam to Seattle to escape global cooling.  In fact, I have no idea why that ribbon seal showed up in Seattle, or why a Montagu’s harrier would show up in Northern Ireland, but I suspect it has less to do with global warming/cooling, and more to do with their freedom, i.e. animals with no citizenship, no borders, and even more importantly no sense of their own range habitat as pronounced by some wildlife biologist in a text book.  They can go where ever their bodies are capable of carrying them to – scientists’  habitat range maps be damned.

Dr. Douglas Maraun performs time series analysis, extreme value statistics, and analysis of precipitation extremes at the Climatic Research Unit at the University of East Anglia.

…he also actually pondered, “how do we avoid sounding religious or arrogant?”, but I’m getting ahead of myself.

Dr. Douglas Maraun, a scientist at the Climatic Reasearch Unit at the University of East Anglia wrote to his colleages in an e-mail on October 24, 2007.  Dr. Maraun, who seems to have more of a conscience than many of his colleagues, had some concerns which he wished to address in a “discussion seminar” to be held in the coffee room that afternoon.  Among Dr. Maraun’s points he wished to discuss were:

-How should we deal with flaws inside the climate community? I think,
that “our” reaction on the errors found in Mike Mann’s work were not
especially honest.

I first posted this five-part video series in November, 2008 because I felt that Svensmark was truly on to something very important in climate research.  As the debate over Svensmark’s research intensified, I posted it again in July, 2009 for the same reason.  Recently, Svensmark’s research was validated in the CERN experiment which makes this video series more relevant than ever, and casts further doubt on Al Gore’s theory of castastrophic man-made climate change.  So, for the third time, I present this five-part video series just as I did back in 2008:

This is a five-part video series featuring Danish scientist Henrik Svensmark, author of The Chilling Stars.

Svensmark’s has researched the effects that cosmic rays have on cloud formation. His theories contradict Al Gore and the IPCC’s theory of an anthropogenic cause for the global warming we experienced in the latter part of the 20th century. Therefore, Svensmark has been ignored by the climate alarmists.

Svensmark:

“Instead of thinking of clouds as a result of the climate, it’s actually showing that the climate is a result of the clouds, because the clouds take their orders from the stars.”

This is GORE LIED must-see-TV. The videos are in order from top-to-bottom – #1 is on top & #5 is on the bottom.

The blame man first crowd is at it again:

Chimpanzees are willing to attack and kill chimps from neighboring groups in an effort to expand their territory, according to scientists who have studied a primate colony in Uganda for 10 years.

Primatologists have long known that chimpanzees band together in single-file lines to silently patrol the border between two communities. If they come across an unfamiliar male, they will attack him with their teeth, take turns jumping on his body and pull off his testicles. If they encounter an unfamiliar female with a baby, they will rip it out of her hands and kill it, sometimes cannibalizing the infant.

“It’s dramatic,” said Sylvia Amsler, a biological anthropologist at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock who worked on the study.

Some researchers proposed that the attacks were designed to attract females to a colony. Others theorized that contact with scientists had caused once-peaceful chimpanzee communities to become warlike.

From the guilt-ridden environmentalist perspective all of nature lived in a perfect and peaceful harmony prior to the corrupting influence of man (more specifically, white males).  Can’t explain a perceived change in the climate?  Blame man.  Can’t explain warring chimps pulling off each others testicles?  Blame man.

About a month ago this blog was hacked about a month ago, and readers may have experienced an attempt to redirect to a supposed “security” site.  Malware was also involved.

Therefore, I’ve been out of commission for about a month.  I’ve got the major parts of the blog up and running, but images are likely missing, but I’ll get that fixed.

Readers, please let me know if you experience problems, or have any tips for things that are broken or not working right.

Thanks.

Well, a little better, but it may not last long.

As noted earlier, due to a hardware (server) technical glitch, access to this blog will remain difficult (sometimes pages will load faster than other times) to impossible until sometime next week according to my host, Go Daddy.

At the time I posted this update, I was able to access the Admin to put up this update post.  I’ll try to post some more before this window of opportunity closes – but no guarantees.

I ask my faithful readers to bear with me during this time.  Thank you.
