The Physically Meaningless Mathematical Construct of GAST

Global Average Surface Temperature (GAST) is a simple average of two waveforms: the Northern Hemisphere cycle (NH) and the Southern Hemisphere cycle (SH). The following analysis shows the resultant (World, GAST ) makes no physical sense in the default World graph of the NCEP CFSV2/CFSR dataset that prompted the WMO to declare the “hottest day” record here:

Daily 2-meter Air Temperature
https://climatereanalyzer.org/clim/t2_daily/

Now take a look at Clive Best’s Aug 2017 post to see a figure from one of his papers which shows all three waveforms plotted simultaneously:

Global absolute temperature – Clive Best
https://clivebest.com/blog/?p=7999

Figure 1. a) Daily values of the global average temperature – Northern, Global, Southern (K)

Given the graphs at Climate Reanalyzer it is easy enough to come up with the following:

1) The NH and SH waves are locked in a completely out of phase state travelling in the same direction at same speed.

2) The two waveforms are not identical.

3) The resultant World is not a dead straight line but cyclic.

4) The means of each are not the same; NH is offset above the SH. The resultant World mean is above the SH mean and below the NH mean but not by the same margin.

5) The amplitudes are not the same; NH is much greater than SH and completely overlaps SH but the amplitude of the resultant World is much less than NH and even less than SH.

6) The phase of the resultant World is completely in phase with NH but completely out of phase with SH.

Now for the following keep in mind the enormous economic disruption based on the UN’s “1.5 C limit” and GAST.

Maximum Temperatures in NCEP CFSV2/CFSR
22.62 – NH Jul 25 2023
17.23 – World Jul 6 2023 (the “Hottest Day”)
17.08 – SH Feb 6 2003

14.80 is the 1.5 C “limit” from a NASA GISS 1880 base, therefore:
About half of every year is always above the “limit”.

So although mathematically correct the resultant average and any “limit” applied to it has no physical relevance – it is a physically meaningless mathematical construct and yet it is the basis for reordering global commerce, industry, agriculture and lifestyles.

Note that application varies e.g. data in this article would put the “limit” at 15 C:

Explained: The 1.5 C climate benchmark
https://news.mit.edu/2023/explained-climate-benchmark-rising-temperatures-0827

Makes little difference. A large part of every year is still above the “limit” whether 14.8 or 15.

This wave analysis has only arisen because the WMO focused attention on the “hottest day” of absolute GAST in the NCEP CFSV2/CFSR reanalysis dataset. Previously anomalies have been the primary consideration but there are no cycles and waveforms in anomaly datasets.

>”A large part of every year is still above the “limit” whether 14.8 or 15″

The present mean is around 14.4 so there’s another 0.6 to go to 15.

At the 2000 – 2023 trend of 0.1 C/decade it will take 60 yrs to cross the “limit” on a sustained basis (assuming that trend continues).

Around 2083.

Anyone panicked by this?

Richard C (NZ)

>”About half of every year is always above the “limit”.”

Been that way for all the years in the NCEP CFSV2/CFSR reanalysis dataset.

>”15ºC above average” in Southern Australia.

May have moved the SH up a tad but Antarctic was up a bit too.

SH up from 11.68 to 12.11 and back down to 11.75.

Given SA is still up but both SH and Antarctica are back down there may have been no effect at all i.e. the SA anomaly is offset somewhere else. That can happen in a wavy jetstream regime.

Check out 500hPa Jetstream, 250hPa Jetstream, 2m Temp Anomaly, and Mean SL Pressure here:

Its generally understood that a meandering jet stream will cause high pressure blocking, the 2019 bushfire season and the later floods in Queensland and northern NSW were directly related to blocking in the Tasman Sea.

Do you know what causes the jet stream to meander?

• #
Richard C (NZ)

El G >”Do you know what causes the jet stream to meander?”

No, just a vague impression.

Plenty of scientific papers, including the “warming poles” hypothesis debunked by Antarctica, but nothing definitive of actual cause that I know of.

But if you dig deep you will find papers correlating jet stream with solar output. From a DDG search – scientific papers linking jetstream to low solar activity – 4th on the list was this:

The North Atlantic jet stream correlates with Solar output over a millennium

JoNova March 16th, 2014

A new paper (Moffa-Sánchez et al) reports that they looked at layers of dead plankton in ocean mud (otherwise known as foraminifera in marine sediments) and have reconstructed the temperature and salinity of a couple of spots in the North Atlantic between 818AD – 1780 with data on δ18O and the Mg/Ca ratios. One immediate thought, an aside, is that if this technique works, there is no shortage of ocean mud, surely, and perhaps we could drill and analyze more mud for solar correlations in other places. (I hear foraminifera live in the Southern Hemisphere too). Perhaps no one is looking for the connection with the sun?

https://joannenova.com.au/2014/03/solar-output-correllates-with-the-north-atlantic-jet-stream-over-a-millenia/

In References I see “Lockwood, M”. He is one of the IPCC’s solar specialists and I’ve corresponded with him re his papers.

When on IPCC business he’s solidly CO2-centric. His other considerable papers not so much. Much of which is solar-centric.

Live worm found inside Australian woman’s brain in groundbreaking case

Australian m﻿edical experts found a live 8cms long roundworm from a python snake inside a NSW woman’s brain, the first case of its kind in the world.
Details of the shocking case were released today by the Australian National University and the Canberra Hospital.
The Ophidascaris robertsi roundworm was pulled from the 64-year-old woman after brain surgery, still alive and wriggling.

https://www.9news.com.au/national/roundworm-parasite-found-in-brain-of-australian-woman/8c588f41-6a29-44ab-89a8-dbfa282a61e8

https://neurosciencenews.com/brain-roundworm-parasite-23845/

The patient likely contracted the parasite from touching or consuming a type of native grass, Warrigal greens, contaminated with the python’s fecal matter. This alarming case raises concerns about the increasing risk of zoonotic diseases as human and animal habitats continue to overlap.

In days gone by, people were sensible, and cleared the wilderness and removed the wildlife prior to settlement. We have unlearned these sensible precautions, and the modern ecoworship religion ignores the hazards of wild living. Can’t we all live in harmony with the pythonic nematodes, they scream.

Those who remember the historical precautions will outlive those who don’t.

• #

So, this person was foraging for wild greens in a wild place and you want to remove all wildlife to make this practice safe, but as a consequence, the greens will also be removed.

Remove the bees. They sting.

Also, back in the day, it was normal for people to wash produce before consuming it, especially if it was picked in the wild.

Or, is this ‘them’ saying the quite part out loud?
Is it the animals or the humans that must be removed from the ‘overlapping habitat’?

Modest Texas town repurposed into a dumping ground for expired wind turbine blades

Officials in Sweetwater say an out-of-state company has made their town a dump for the seldom-seen trash created by renewable energy.

Sweetwater has unwittingly become home to what is possibly the world’s largest collection of unwanted wind turbine blades.

• #
Richard C (NZ)

>”Don’t let them bury their mistakes”

Those are supposed to recycled – not buried.

Back to Sweetwater. In 2017, a Washington-state company called Global Fiberglass Solutions came along, promising an exciting new way to repurpose the blades, and since then, GFS has been dumping the blades in the far-off land of Texas. According to the Texas Monthly article, the managing director himself admitted that only a fraction of the stockpile had ever been “recycled.”

3M to pay billions to settle lawsuits over US military earplugs

More than 300,000 troops claim they suffered hearing loss and tinnitus due to company’s faulty product.

American multinational conglomerate 3M has agreed to pay more than \$5.5 billion to settle hundreds of thousands of lawsuits, claiming that it supplied defective combat earplugs to the US military, people familiar with the deal told Bloomberg.

According to the agreement, the company will be paying the money out over a five-year period, the agency reported on Sunday. 3M’s board is yet to sign off on the settlement, it added.

When approached on the issue by Bloomberg, a representative of 3M said the company does not comment on rumors or speculation.

3M faces more than 300,000 lawsuits from US troops, consolidated in a multi-district litigation, claiming that the earplugs that the company’s subsidiary Aearo Technologies provided to the military between 2003 and 2015 were defective, and failed to protect their users from hearing loss and tinnitus.

Fools.. every firearm should be supplied with a silencer, its simple. I see a lot of soldiers are using them in Ukraine at the moment. It was compulsory at the indoor rimfire range we used to go to, along with 4″ thick insulation on the walls & ceiling.

I’m afraid its not like the movies, they don’t make a gun go pft, but they reduce the crucial peak noise for the user and people standing beside them. An earlier example of complete stupidity of Govts believing fairy tales and making life worse for their citizens.

Commonly called flashback arrestors or oil filters (Google it) and yes I know a flashback arrestor or muzzle brake are a different beastie. Suppressors are illegal in Oz without a permit but do remove the sound of the cartridge going off , unless the projectile is subsonic however the resultant boom can be very loud . In a military application suppression would be useful or practical in just a few situations that I can think of . Ironically you could buy a silencer legally over the counter in the ACT years ago as long as it was sold as a flashback arrestor .
If the projectile goes under the sound barrier and you have a suppressor the only sound is the click of the firing pin (non centrefire) I have never tried centre fire suppressed but I imagine it would be the same .

• #

the suppressed centrefire is very loud even with subsonic ammunition, although quieter
the suppressors help with accuracy and it is very hard to tell where the shot came from
suppressors are not flashback arrestors they are a totally different thing
l used to work for a pro hunter where we used them but in all honesty is was a gimmick that helped get work
an assassins supressed firearm l am sure is different to a longarm but would be useless at range

60% Of Women Have Suffered Some Form of Sexual Harassment or Assault in US McMurdo Station in Antarctica

Now, the cold hard truth about the life on the station is coming to light, as the National Science Foundation published a report in which 59% of women said they’d experienced harassment or assault while on the station.

Worse – an Associated Press investigation found that, quite often, claims of harassment or assault are minimized by employers.

“Mechanic Liz Monahon told the AP a man at the base threatened her in 2021, but her employers did little to protect her. So she grabbed a hammer and kept it on her at all times.

‘If he came anywhere near me, I was going to start swinging at him’, Monahon said. ‘I decided that I was going to survive’.”

The man, who had a criminal record in New Zealand, was eventually sent off Antarctica – but the problem persists., as problems with the base’s drinking culture had been going on for years.

Its the free enterprise model, the US owns more of Australia.

The economic problem confronting Beijing cannot be easily fixed, China’s currency is falling sharply and against sound advice they are reducing interest rates. Its unorthodox, so we’ll have to see how it pans out.

The collapse of the property market and mass unemployment could theoretically see a general uprising. After the restrictive Covid lockdowns and man made floods, the authorities have only themselves to blame, but is it enough to bring down the CCP Dynasty?

The whole world has gone that way with privatisation since the 1980s. NZ has a dozen or two multi-millionaires who got in as the Govt sold off State Depts, and the financial consultants handling the sales made them selves millionaires too.

Railways, TV, radio stations, telcoms, electricity generation, airlines, all monopolies to the person who gets their hands on them first. If they had not been monopolised by Govts in the first place we would have had a chance of competition, but selling them as they did was never going to work. The idea of giving every citizen shares in the companies was a better one.

Its a good thing the Govts never set up the internet and offered it to us like TV!

99% of ‘Covid deaths’ not primarily caused by the virus, CDC data shows.

Nearly 99 percent of ‘Covid deaths’ reported by the CDC each week are not primarily caused by the virus, official data shows.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Covid dashboard shows just 1.7 percent of the 324 Covid deaths registered in the week ending August 19 had the coronavirus as the primary cause of death.

The figures suggest just a handful of American lives are being lost directly to the virus each week. For comparison, the virus was behind one in three ‘Covid deaths’ at America’s pandemic peak in 2021.

The primary or underlying cause of death is defined as the disease, situation or event that initiated the chain of events directly resulting in death.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-12453329/99-PERCENT-Covid-deaths-not-caused-virus-official-data.html

The surgical N95 mask has been held up as the gold standard when it comes to protecting against Covid.

But a study quietly re-shared by the National Institutes of Health in spring suggests the tight-fitting mask may expose users to dangerous levels of toxic chemicals.

Researchers from Jeonbuk National University in South Korea looked at two types of disposable medical-grade masks, as well as several reusable cotton masks.

The study found that the chemicals released by these masks had eight times the recommended safety limit of toxic volatile organic compounds (TVOCs).

Inhaling TVOCs has been linked to health issues like headaches and nausea, while prolonged and repeated has been linked to organ damage and even cancer.

Meta ends partnership with RMIT FactLab amid voice referendum bias claims

Tech giant Meta has suspended its partnership with RMIT’s fact checking program “effective immediately” after receiving complaints about bias and unfairness relating to the upcoming voice to parliament referendum.

Meta executives have distanced themselves from RMIT’s FactLab after it recently came under fire for slapping a “false information” label on Sky News Australia host Peta Credlin’s reports posted on Facebook that the Uluru Statement from the Heart is not a single-page document but is 26 pages long.

The FactLab’s failure to have a current certification by the International Fact-Checking Network was also blamed for Meta’s decision to cut ties with FactLab.

.

.

RMIT FactLab and ABC FactCHeck are both run by director Russell Skelton. Skelton is a journalist with The Age and a former ABC employee. Married to ABC presenter Virginia Trioli.

Imagine how outrageously biased it must have been if even Meta thought it was too biased for their own low “standards”.

Plus, talk about foreign interference in an Australian Constitutional referendum.

Actually, I believe it was the Australian Government and The Voice propagandists who invited Meta to interfere in an Australian political referendum.

https://www.theguardian.com/australia-news/2023/jul/10/meta-vows-to-crack-down-on-abuse-and-misinformation-around-voice-to-parliament-referendum

Power Transfer
Something from a Kiwi friend about the results of their “Voice”, namely Treaty of Waitangi,
and its disastrous consequences for the majority of New Zealanders:
WE ARE WITNESSING A TRANSFER TO ANTI-DEMOCRATIC POWER.
Let us make no mistake about what is happening here in New Zealand right now.
The Mongrel Mob has endorsed the Labour – Greens – Maori Party coalition and we are also witnessing a transfer of democratic power from ‘all the people’to an ANTI-DEMOCRATIC private sector: namely, a multi-billion-dollar tribal elite.
Via the NZ taxpayer they have already been paid \$4.79 billion with not having to pay taxes. That is now worth in excess of \$11 billion. And they still want more. Due to the \$105 million gift (bribe) that the news media received from this government, most in the media sector are no longer providing balance in their reporting.
Increasingly they are vilifying those who stand up as a voice of opposition to what the government is doing, particularly when it comes to race based topics.
Now let’s look at just a few events that have been passed by the current gov’t and/or are being contemplated to be enacted from their racist ‘He Puapua Plan’ and/or from policy off the Maori Party’s own website.
Ø Local Government: The abolition of the right of local communities to hold a binding referendum on Maori Ward Seats on Councils. (ALREADY DONE)
Ø A separate Maori Health Authority funded by the taxpayer with veto rights over the entire health system. (ALREADY DONE)
Ø Maori patients to be prioritised over non-Maori (irrespective of the need of the patient). (ALREADY DONE)
Ø Water: Granting Maori rights to ALL fresh water, the Seabed & Foreshore from mean high tide out to 12 nautical miles. Giving Maori access to funding for their legal costs to make a claim, BUT the opponents to Maori claims must fund their own legal costs. (IN THE PROCESS OF BEING DONE)
Ø Replace all non-Maori names for cities, towns & roads to Maori by 2026. (IN THE PROCESS OF BEING DONE)
Ø Change New Zealand’s name to Aotearoa by 2026 even though it was never called that name by Maori. The origin of the word Aotearoa came from a European in the late 1800’s. They do not want a referendum to be held. (STEALTHILY BEING DONE NOW)
Ø Using Hori lingo for naming of government departments (NEARLY DONE)
Ø Re-open the Treaty settlement process enabling tribal claims on private land.(IN THE PROCESS OF BEING DONE)
Ø Transfer the conservation estate (DOC) to Maori. (IN THE PROCESS OF BEING DONE, e.g., WAIKAREMOANA NATIONAL PARK – NOW UNDER TRIBAL CONTROL)
Ø Entrench the Maori seats and forcing all Maori to register on the Maori electoral roll (A MOVE THAT WOULD RESULT IN DOUBLING OF THE NUMBER OF MAORI SEATS)
Ø Establish a Maori Parliament.
Ø Waitangi Tribal recommendations would become binding on the Government (GIVING THE TRIBUNAL SUPERIOR LEGAL STATUS TO PARLIAMENT)
Ø Compulsory teaching of Hori lingo in all classes up to year 10 (secondary school) (IN THE PROCESS OF BEING DONE)
Ø Require all Primary Schools to have 25% of their curriculum by 2026 and 50% by 2030 in Hori lingo.
Ø A new constitution based on the revised interpretation of Treaty of Waitangi. Their ambition is to control the country – (THIS REPRESENTS A SIGNIFICANT THREAT TO NEW ZEALAND’S FUTURE).
“WE CANNOT AFFORD NOT TO SPEAK OUT. WE MUST ALL ACT – AND ACT NOW”.
If we do not speak out, talk about it, or discuss it because we are afraid, then the protagonists of these racist, separatist and divisive policies mentioned above have won.
Make no mistake about it, to stop you voicing your concerns, the antagonists will label you as being racist in order to stop you from speaking out. Do not be afraid to be outspoken if we want to save our democracy, ü if we want one law for all, ü if we one health system for all, ü if we want to be able to enjoy all the land, the national reserves & parks and the sea without being intimidated, ü if we want one person – one vote, then we have no option but to get out of our comfort zones and engage in protest by means that may not come easily to us.”
It is time to stand up & fight back. WE MUST so that we can pass on this amazing country as we knew it to our children and our grandchildren; a peace-loving multicultural country.
We are saddened to say that to vote Labour this year, you will be giving a vote to the strong Maori caucus within Labour, The Greens, and the Maori Party, so that they can continue with their race-based agenda in implementing He Puapua and the Maori Party’s race-based agenda (according to their web site) to the detriment of this amazing country.
WE IMPLORE YOU TO THINK VERY CAREFULLY WHO YOU GIVE YOUR PARTY AND YOUR ELECTORATE VOTE TO THIS YEAR.
Ø Hori lingo must be visible and used in all places such as T.V. radio, road signs, maps, and the education system (IN THE PROCESS OF BEING DONE)

Yes, I’ve just received a copy of the referendum booklet- I would urge everyone to put it in a safe place for their great-grandchildren to look at and see how the country compares to what they said would happen.

NZ is a superb example of where the voice is going, but they don’t want that talked about. The Voice- They didn’t want it called The Aboriginal Parliament, or The aboriginal Consent Committee, they needed something innocuous that didn’t say anything about what is coming!

…and for all my bitching about Govt and what a failure democracy is, it seems I’m a stronger believer in ‘one-man one-vote’ and ‘equality before the law’ than at least half the population!

Don’t worry about tally fraud, our electoral system is sound.

Huge, Chilling Study on mRNA Genic Serums’ Serious Adverse Reactions

An anthological research summarizing all the most important studies on the pathologies caused by the antiCovid mRNA genic serums was published on June 17, peer-reviewed on July 17, accepted on July 24 and published on August 17 in the specialized journal Biomedicine of the authoritative Swiss medical journals MDPI.

It is entitled “Spikeopathy”: COVID-19 Spike Protein Is Pathogenic, from Both Virus and Vaccine mRNA.

Australian University Research Based on 253 International Studies
It was published by Australian scientists Peter I Parry of the Children’s Health Clinical Research Unit, Faculty of Medicine, University of Queensland, South Brisbane, Australia, Astrid Lefringhausen, Robyn Cosford and Julian Gillespie, Children’s Health Defense (Australia Chapter) , Huskisson, Conny Turni, Microbiological Research, QAAFI (Queensland Alliance for Agriculture and Food Innovation), University of Queensland, St. Lucia, Christopher J. Neil, Department of Medicine, University of Melbourne, Melbourne, and Nicholas J. Hudson, School of Agriculture and Food Sciences, University of Queensland, Brisbane.

It is a colossal work of scientific literature based on 253 studies in which the most significant ones are cited on the toxicity of the Spike protein and of the vaccines that trigger it in the body through mRNA vectors, published in the last two years by the scientists we have repeatedly mentioned on Gospa News since the first months of distribution of these new experimental and dangerous pharmacological biotechnologies at the beginning of 2021.

In fact, the works on autoimmune diseases by the American biophysicist Stephanie Seneff, a scientist at the prestigious MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) in Cambridge, an by is compatriot cardiologist Peter McCullough , those on the risks of cancer by the British oncologist Angus Dalgleish, those of the genomics expert Kevin McKernan on the cellular replication of DNA Spike plasmids in the human body, those of the American chemist Alana F. Ogatawho was among the first to denounce the dangers of Genetic sera mRNA Moderna (source 52), and obviously the disturbing and revolutionary one by the Italian biochemist Gabriele Segalla on the toxic nanoparticles of the Comirnaty vaccine by Pfizer-Biontech could not be missing.

This is a shocking reading that should lead the world health authorities to immediately stop the administration of mRNA genie serums as the toxicity of Spike is now ascertained.

Fact Checking the Tucker Carlson – Col MacGregor Interview of August 21st

I have always thought Macgregor to be full of it and Carlson to be so anti-Ukraine to be verging Russian shill but I cannot make the case. Ryan McBeth is knowledgeable enough to do so.

Carlson actually believes that Russia is winning the war and that says a lot , I used to like him but not so much now .

• #

He us not alone, even US military has that fear for reasons.

• #

RT.com says Carlson is chasing Putin for an interview. Possible, but not common for Putin to talk to overseas journos. It would be interesting, I’d expect audience figures to be right up here with Trump’s. Probably get Carlson assassinated soon after..

MrGrimNasty

Doubt it, believe it or not, most people have no interest in the delusional rantings of an evil psychopath.

McBeth is reportedly an Army Vet and a triathlete.
How come he looks so weak and pudgy?

Probably something to do with the passage of time. We where all something else once.

• #

l could not watch after the first five minutes as what he was accusing Tucker of he was doing himself
click bait, send him \$5 LOL
unbelievable

but if you really want to see where all your tax money sent to Ukronato is going, have a look at the Dreizin report for up close and personal big video dumps of Leopard tank, Abrahams and bushmaster graveyards since the 16th of June when Ukronato started their offensive
warning, not for the emotional damaged, many western game changing nato armaments destroyed making these videos
https://thedreizinreport.com/2023/08/18/wagner-the-lithium-wars-and-updated-dreizin-estimate-of-counter-suck-fensive-losses-and-post-june-16th-big-video-dump-installment-13-154-vids-and-photos-you-must-use-la/

and just remember more nato bombs will eventually bring peace to the common people of Ukraine

We all know that climate was perfect back in 1850 before the rapid industrialisation with uptake of fossil fuel consumption.

So the fact that the peak sunlight at summer solstice in the Southern Hemisphere is declining while the peak summer solstice sunlight in the NH is increasing obviously has nothing to do with the observed climate trends:

A close look at the chart also shows the decline at the South Pole is slightly more than the decline at the equator while the increase at the North Pole is slightly more than the equator. If the peak sunlight had any bearing on temperature, which of course it doesn’t, the future increase in peak sunlight for the next 400 years is accelerating compared with the past 400 years. The NH experienced its lowest summer solstice sunlight 500 years back in 1509.

The climate models are able to accumulate the imaginary energy imbalance from CO2 in the oceans but that does not happen with real changing peak sunlight. So this changing sunlight is a curious distraction.

I was looking at a website about the Ukraine war and the discussion was about the statements of assorted politicians and experts. This passage stood out:

“None of our so-called leaders have any technical knowledge and can be fed this kind of bs by their “intelligence” agencies and have no intellectual tools or technical experience to detect it. So they simply parrot the story, hoping it will make them look smart but with the opposite effect.”

We see a lot of this today with Albanese and Bowen and assorted State energy ministers.
