'Global average temperatures are headed back to pre-El Niño values, which may put them near the range of the long “pause” in warming beginning in 1997 that ended with the recent El Niño...Here’s the satellite data from the University of Alabama-Huntsville through last month:
Temperatures have fallen to within approximately 0.15⁰C of the average since the end of the last (1998) big El Niño and the beginning of the recent one.'
We have seen lots of claims about the temperature records for 2016 and 2015 proving dangerous man made warming. At least one senator stated that in a confirmation hearing. Yet HadSST3 data for the last two years show how obvious is the ocean’s governing of global average temperatures.
'When a significant proportion of the US population is impervious to scientific facts, such as belief in human-induced climate change, it is difficult to communicate vaccine-related information to patients.'
UK Times: "Scientists said satellite images suggested the North Pole would remain inaccessible except by an icebreaker...Scientists warned, though, that despite the rapid melting of the ice there was unlikely to be access to the North Pole via open water for some years. Professor Mark Serreze, director of America’s National Snow and Ice Data Centre, said the North Pole was still surrounded by nearly 800 miles of solid pack ice as of last week."
Update Aug. 15, 2017: This appears to be a media stunt to sail the Arctic ocean with the media hook of possibly sailing "even to the North Pole." The leader of the crew has said: “The secondary objective is to sail as far north as the sea ice safely allows us, possibly even to the North Pole.” BBC reports the ship has set sail on its mission of heading toward the North Pole which current data says is not possible to cross in this sail boat.

A survey of the region of the West Antarctic Rift System has revealed 91 new volcanoes hidden within the ice. The new volcanoes are on top of the 47 whose peaks are above the ice and were already known about. The volcanoes range in height from 100m to a towering 3,850m tall. Geologists say the range has similarities to east Africa’s volcanic ridge, which was previously thought to have the densest concentration of volcanoes in the world.
Study: 'The sea levels have not followed the carbon dioxide emission over the past 120 years. Hence, it is increasingly unrealistic to claim that the sea levels are driven by the anthropogenic carbon dioxide emission.'
AL GORE’S POOR TRACK RECORD - Chart by Meteorologist Joe Bastardi of Weatherbell Analytics. - An inconvenient truth: Global temps were warmer when Al Gore won the 2007 Nobel Prize than today, even after the 2015/16 super El Nino.
Kids in video exposed to dire climate claims to promote Gore's sequel and then "inspired" to fix problem. Climate activist Prince EA goes tells kids: "Storms are stronger than ever before...or more drought, wildfires, hurricanes than ever before."
“This is like, making me feel sad,” one kids says.
Via Huffington Post: Gore’s production partner, the social-change oriented Participant Media, told HuffPost the company never expected sales to top “An Inconvenient Truth.” ... “An Inconvenient Sequel” entered a much different movie market than “An Inconvenient Truth,”
'The movie came out during a rough season for sequels.'
In the U.S., climate change is anything but a priority for President Donald Trump, who earlier this year announced the nation’s withdrawal from the Paris climate agreement. Coverage of the issue also appears to be waning. Broadcast television outlets, still a primary source of news for many Americans, devoted less than 50 minutes last year to climate change coverage, nearly one-third less than in 2015, according to a recent study. And the memory of Gore’s 2000 presidential run has faded over the past decade.
“Al Gore isn’t necessarily the hot-button person that he once was in 2006, that’s how quickly the winds of change occur in a political circle,” Jeff Bock, senior analyst at the box office tracking firm Exhibitor Relations, said with a sigh. “That’s not that much different in the Hollywood circles, as well. An actress hot 10 years ago may barely have a career today.” He added: “Obviously you look at the disparity between the first one and the sequel at the box office, and that plays a big part.”
Watch: Morano on One America News TV: On 'Leaked' Federal Climate Report - One America News TV - 'Tipping Point' show - Broadcast August 11, 2017
"This is pre-determined science. If you are reading this report and you say: 'This sounds like a press release by environmental groups' -- that's because it is! The lead authors are activists with environmental group Union of Concerned Scientists."
"The government is paying our National Academy of Sciences (NAS) to come up with alarming report with a bunch of scary climate computer models. (NAS is almost entirely dependent on federal funding).
The lead authors of this report Donald Wuebbles and Katharine Hayhoe, have come out and said every storm is now impacted by global warming. It is a political report masquerading as science. We knew what it was going to say before it was issued and it has been available for months, it was not 'leaked.'"
Marc Morano on 'The Brett Winterble Show' on Newsmax TV - Broadcast August 10, 2017 - Interview begins around 1 hour into.
Morano on Gore's sequel: "I went on a Saturday night, there were only 12 other people in the theater to watch Gore's film.
"Gore shows emotional videos of flood rescues and other extreme weather and implies it's all our fault -- we are causing people to die."
"The weather is going to come for you unless we support the most expensive treaty in world history, the UN Paris climate pact. The movie has a happy ending because Donald Trump tosses out all of Al Gore's hard work and the UN pact is tossed into the dustbin of history."
UK Lord's son receives chilling diagnosis from Doctor about his Dad: "Dr Messner, a registrar in trauma and orthopaedic surgery at an NHS teaching facility in Yorkshire, seemed to think my 85-year-old father’s [skeptical global warming] opinions indicated that he was losing his mind to dementia."
ShowBiz411: Alarmism fails at Box Office: 'Last fall, Leonardo DiCaprio’s “Before the Flood” had a very limited theatrical release, made zilch, and was released more effectively for free on line and on National Geographic Channel.'
Gore tries to save flailing sequel: "It is our fervent hope that this one will add another burst of momentum." He also urged attendees to spread the word, saying: "If you like this movie and feel it's worthwhile, what matters most in recommending movies today in this noisy media environment is what people hear from their friends, from word of mouth, and social media."
Gore said it was "thoroughly documented" that companies producing carbon pollution had taken the "blueprint drafted by the tobacco companies" from the period when scientific evidence came forward.
The sequel to 2006’s “An Inconvenient Truth” also fell from 15th to 18th in its second weekend of wide release on the box-office list, prompting critic Roger Friedman to declare that the film has been “a box office dud so far.”
Wash Times Features Climate Depot: Climate skeptics have gleefully chronicled the tepid audience reaction, arguing that it comes as evidence that the public remains leery of the catastrophic-climate scenarios peddled by the Democrat Gore. Climate Depot dubbed the film “a box office bomb,” while audiences on Rotten Tomatoes gave it a low 47 percent approval rating.
Al Gore's latest flick, "An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power," is now being shown in movie theaters across America. Yes, I didn't notice either. And the same goes for the millions of Americans who took in a movie this past weekend. Of the estimated $121 million Americans spent at the movies last weekend, less than $1 million was spent on the Gore's sad grab at political relevancy. Perhaps Gore can take solace in the fact that he narrowly edged out for 15th place another liberal-biased movie, "Cars 3," which targets children with fossil fuel lies via cute talking cars. No word yet on whether Gore is going to demand a recount. Despite tens and perhaps hundreds of millions of dollars in free promotion offered by the left-wing media for Gore, Americans didn't take heed. And after eight straight miserable years of the Obama administration misusing its control of government bureaucracies and schools, assisted every step of the way by the government-aligned left-wing media, the purveyors of climate doom thought they had won the battle of public opinion.
An Australian couple filed a climate lawsuit against one of the country’s “big four” banks on Tuesday, in a test case with international implications...“We are deeply concerned about the serious risks that climate change poses to the environment and society. The bank should tell investors about the risks climate change will have on its business.”
Even Global Warming Believing Miami Columnist Says Al Gore is Full of It
“In his new book, ‘Truth to Power,'” Oppenheimer wrote, “the Nobel Prize winner projects that the sea level in South Florida will rise by half a foot by 2030, two feet by 2060 and ‘up to seven feet or more’ by 2100. “Most scientists I’ve asked about the future of Miami Beach…tell me that this city won’t disappear under the water, nor will it become another Venice.
