Bastardi speaks on the AGW issue in response to those seeking to silence him for questioning their issue and plans. He says he wants the objective reader to hear more about his arguments made in a a brief interview on FOX News as to why he concludes CO2 is not causing changes of climate and the recent flurry of extremes of our planet.
In the press release above ATS Euromaster is saying that a forecaster they use is predicting the worst winter on record in the UK. They are urging motorists to pre-order cold weather tires and introduced a system of pre-ordering which follows unprecedented demand last year. James Madden, a long-range forecaster for Exacta Weather, correctly predicted the harsh conditions the past two years. ATS Euromaster is preparing to sell cold weather tires in the UK for the second year and is trusting Madden’s forecast. He is a meteorologist predicting that this winter will “break all records” in terms of snowfall and freezing temperatures.
He warns: “The UK is to brace itself for well below average temperatures and widespread heavy snowfall throughout winter 2011/2012 which will result in the fourth bad winter in succession, and will prove to be the worst of them all.”
“I fully expect records to be broken, with the Highlands of Scotland being once again particularly hard hit. It is vital to start preparing now.”
As a heating company we are urging people to buy pipe heating cable, roof and gutter heating cable and comfort heaters early as well at: www.MorElectricHeating.com
The sun has no sunspots right now! The whole world should stand in awe of this new development which is just not supposed to happen during what many are calling the solar MAXIMUM of solar cycle 24. This is little ice age type material for sure. We are closely following how bad the winters will get given this news, and here at Mor Electric Heating we suggest the following to prepare for what is probably inevitable:
Major snow and ice can be fought here: http://www.morelectricheating.com/products/SNOW%20AND%20ICE%20MELTING.aspx
Extremely cold pipes can be fought here:
Joe Bastardi’s tweet this morning says it all: Sun almost spotless.. amazing!
And now we get the news that there may be more insight coming into why:
As we say here at Mor Electric Heating: “Buy and install alot of electric heaters before it is too late”
There is unprecedented growth in Roof & Gutter Heating Cable and Pipe Heating Cable. Current and new manufacturers are increasing product lines, stock and options at a never before seen rate due to a huge demand that has developed over the past 10 years. The mild winters of the 90’s are long gone and the winters are more like the 70’s now with extreme cold and huge amounts of snow for the entire winter and seen in all area’s of the world.
So, from the perspective of all of us electric heating companies:
Earth is NOT getting any warmer.
It is getting COLDER (Global Cooling)
Take a look at the F10.7 (Flux) Solar Activity Plot above from http://www.leif.org/research/TSI-SORCE-2008-now.png
It has the words “Welcome to solar max” written on it! When that first appeared weeks ago it seemed very odd, since it was at the same time as the first hint of any decent solar ramp up. Not many scientists commented, they must have thought it was a joke! But some scientists say that the magnetic field has already flipped! That would mean that the ramp up is done and the ramp down is not too far off since the current logic is middle max in the year 2013-2014. Indeed the sunspots of late appear to be really struggling. They look like they should be bigger but can’t quite achieve enough contrast except for the center. And then out of the blue they fire off a huge flare.
If the max. is truly here we will be experiencing even colder temperatures and more brutal winters that we thought. Dalton minimum levels are all we really can think about it seems, but colder times than that appear to be already started. During Dalton and especially the coldest years of 1812-1816, there were not the many millions of homes built in very cold regions such as Michigan, Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin or even Oklahoma, Texas and Arizona (even those states just had a brutal winter for their standards.)
Here at Mor Electric Heating we are building up a base to help everyone get through it all. Here are some solutions we have:
roof and gutter heating wire protects your house from the huge snowfalls occurring.
Here in Michigan we have been experiencing “Michigan Winters” for a long time because we are Michigan! (Except for the 90’s when we had Ohio winters or something like that.) Obviously there a lot of states that have a few winters now that are as bad as ours. There are alot of prominent weathermen that are saying that this will continue for the U.S.A. for many years. Here in Michigan we know how to handle it, so give us a call at 1-800-44202581, and we will get things heated up for you.
Given what could happen given what has happened,, cutting off sources of energy look to be a road to ruin http://www.accuweather.com/video/782928447001/why-we-need-all-energy-sources.asp?channel=vbbastaj
Joe Bastardi knows alot about what the weather can do to people. He is apparently saying in the video link above that the Government and others involved in regulating, promoting and pricing various forms of energy, (particularly for heating) need to realize what is coming for the next few years and even the next 30 years (His Triple Crown of Cooling). He is obviously saying that not hurting ANY energy/fuels in price or availability will help people because we are going to need everything available to survive the coming winters.
Joe must also know the non-linear relationship between the cost of heating and the temperature/wind. Here at Mor Electric Heating we are well aware that a winter that is twice as bad does NOT correlate to a heating bill that is twice as bad. It is far worse than that. Heating degree days is a very complicated calculation and so are the other factors such as insulation, windows, etc.. A winter that is even just 1 degree colder makes it amazingly harder to heat your house. And a thermostat setting that is just 1 degree different does the same. People need to keep those rooms as cold as they can, especially the ones you are not using, to try to get the temperature between the inside and outside of the house closer, to minimize heat loss (Dollars spent). We help people survive with heaters that make sense for each situation to take the sting out of winter a little bit.
We are selling a huge amount of roof and gutter heating wire to some new states such as Oklahoma and Kentucky and other more southern states. The USA has had 50% or greater snow cover for alot of the winter, including right now. Years past had only seen the typical states such as Colorado, New York, Minnesota, Pennsylvania, etc.
Yesterday we shipped an order of quite a few pipe heating cables to El Paso, TX (on the Mexican border). All last week and yesterday we shipped a huge amount of pipe heating tape to Arizona, New Mexico and Texas.
Before the last couple winters, we sold little to those states over the past couple decades.
Because the last few winters have been cold and satellite temperatures show that the temperature of the Earth is quickly falling, post El Nino, we are quite sure that it is Global Cooling and we are here to help your pipes and roofs survive it!
One customer today in Louisiana said it is 34F and icy and they just don’t know what to do with that. His house is cold and he wanted the heater and thermostat shipped UPS Red. It is not unusual anymore for us to sell heaters to Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, Texas and Florida.
