  1. After yesterday's record Chester County PA low high temp of 54.5 today we were even chillier with a well below normal (68.2) high of only 51.7...however only the 2nd coldest May 9th....just last year we set the record chilly day with a high of only 46.5.
  2. Dr. Ryan Maue going off on the "new normal" of 90+ days and how they skew local climate stats - "I started looking at number of 90°F days in various cities accounting for the new "normal" and it is straight up urban heat island. Not surprising. Cities really need to get off their asses and plant trees and change the urban landscape to provide quicker evening cooling"
  3. Many (not all) folks on that side of the debate - often just break down and curse....they are not interesting in any discussion around what they consider "settled science". It is of course one of the biggest problems today - we don't like to debate or discuss - we would rather just shout someone down and curse at them - whether it be politics or trying to discuss whether or not there is man made climate change.....man made climate change is no matter how often it is said - not settled science or fact today - full stop
  4. LOL! whatever denier means....fact is the climate is - and always will be changing no denying that! Now speculation but not settled science is could man have some impact on the current warming cycle? That is of course far from a fact or settled science.
  5. Sea Breeze kicked in at Sea Isle City the temp was at 78.6 at 1210pm by 1250pm down almost 20 degrees to 59.7
  6. Don, key point you make is true....may have been - facts are all that matter here
  7. And it sounds like you are gullible enough to buy into the "settled science" when it is absolutely not factual and not settled.....
  8. Some interesting quotes,thoughts and facts from both the book and a Wall Street Journal opinion https://www.wsj.com/articles/unsettled-review-theconsensus-on-climate-11619383653 Despite the expected predictable dismissal of the author by some on this forum already - the WSJ states "Mr. Koonin’s science credentials are impeccable—unlike, say, those of one well-known Swedish teenager to whom the media affords great attention on climate matters. He has been a professor of physics at Caltech and served as the top scientist in Barack Obama’s Energy Department. The book is copiously referenced and relies on widely accepted government documents. "Mr. Koonin (The book's author) is no “climate denier,” to use the concocted phrase used to shut down debate. The word “denier” is of course meant to associate skeptics of climate alarmism with Holocaust deniers." "Mr. Koonin is persuasively skeptical. It’s a big problem, he says, when models can’t retroactively “predict” events that have already happened. And he notes that some of the “tuning” done to models so that they work better amounts to “cooking the books.” "But science itself is not conducted by polls, regardless of how often we are urged to heed a “scientific consensus” on climate. As the science-trained novelist Michael Crichton summarized in a famous 2003 lecture at Caltech: “If it’s consensus, it isn’t science. If it’s science, it isn’t consensus. Period.” “Heat waves in the US are now no more common than they were in 1900” and “the warmest temperatures in the US have not risen in the past fifty years" "Humans have had no detectable impact on hurricanes over the past century" Greenland’s ice sheet isn’t shrinking any more rapidly today than it was eighty years ago" "But even if one remains unconvinced by his arguments, the right response is to debate the science. We’ll see if that happens in a world in which politicians assert the science is settled and plan astronomical levels of spending to replace the nation’s massive infrastructures with “green” alternatives. Never have so many spent so much public money on the basis of claims that are so unsettled. The prospects for a reasoned debate are not good. Good luck, Mr. Koonin."
  9. https://www.unsettledsciencebook.com/ Interesting new scientific review in the above book is coming out from another scientist. I have already ordered! This will again attempt to correct the "settled science" voices depicted by some....as I always say it is of course not settled. Thought provoking point made in the upcoming liner notes "He dispels popular myths and unveils little-known truths: despite a dramatic rise in greenhouse gas emissions, global temperatures actually decreased from 1940 to 1970. What’s more, the models we use to predict the future aren’t able to accurately describe the climate of the past, suggesting they are deeply flawed. " While my friends who are card carrying members of the "settled science" team will dismiss the author - this again underscores the point that if scientists continue to have dissenting views... backed up with real data - it is NOT settled science - in fact it is clearly up for debate. Settled science is the world is round...fact...man made climate change?? not fact.

  11. April finished with an average temp of 53.4 in East Nantmeal this is the 22nd warmest April with the top 5 warmest being 1921 - 57.5 / 2017 - 57.1 / 1941 - 56.1 / 1915 - 56.0 and 1942 at 55.6. As you can see in my comparison my Vantage Pro has been consistently running warmer than my other 2 stations and KMQS Airport....The Tempest and Ambient on my property are running virtually the same with 0 variation over the year to date and April for the month. I will keep an eye on this to see if the VP may be in need of replacing.
