Earth is Cooling, Not Warming

Something like this was bound to happen sooner or later: Russian military jet shot down by Turkey.


The finger of territory over which the Russian jet reportedly flew is about 2 km wide, and at the Su-24’s top speed of 1,315 kph it would have taken 5.5 seconds to fly over. It’s still only 11 seconds at half that speed.

If the yellow dots are of the Turkish F-16 that launched an air-to-air missile, then it was at least 10 km away. US air-to-air missile speeds are typically Mach 4, or 1.361 kps, and so would have taken 13 seconds to reach the Su-24.

To hit the plane while it was over Turkish territory, the Turkish pilot would have had to launch the missile before the Russian jet crossed into Turkish territory. If he launched the missile while the Russian jet was over Turkish territory, the missile would have hit after the jet had returned  to Syrian airspace. Since the Su-24 came down about 5 km inside Syria (green rectangle), the latter is probably what happened.

To me, it seems really stupid  and completely unnecessary to shoot down a plane which spends 10 seconds or less over your airspace.

NATO convened an emergency meeting:

Diplomats present at the meeting told Reuters that while none of the 28 NATO envoys defended Russia’s actions, many expressed concern that Turkey did not escort the Russian warplane out of its airspace.

“There are other ways of dealing with these kinds of incidents,” said one diplomat who declined to be named.

Putin is very angry.  Furthermore,..

the Russian Ministry of Defense explained, going forward, any Turkish plane that enters Syrian airspace will be fair game.

Via James Delingpole and NoTricksZone,

Veteran journalist Günter Ederer* writes a piece reporting that massive alterations have been found in the NASA GISS temperature data series, citing a comprehensive analysis conducted by a leading German scientist. These results are now available to the public.

Ederer reports not long ago retired geologist and data computation expert Professor Dr. Friedrich Karl Ewert began looking at the data behind the global warming claims, and especially the datasets of NASA’s Goddard Institute of Space Studies (GISS).

Ewert painstakingly examined and tabulated the reams of archived data from 1153 stations that go back to 1881 – which NASA has publicly available – data that the UN IPCC uses to base its conclusion that man is heating the Earth’s atmosphere through the burning of fossil fuels. According to Ederer, what Professor Ewert found is “unbelievable”:

“From the publicly available data, Ewert made an unbelievable discovery: Between the years 2010 and 2012 the data measured since 1881 were altered so that they showed a significant warming, especially after 1950. […] A comparison of the data from 2010 with the data of 2012 shows that NASA-GISS had altered its own datasets so that especially after WWII a clear warming appears – although it never existed.”

I knew that the weather data was being massaged by James Hansen and company, but it seems that it was far worse than I imagined, and actually turned a global cooling trend into a global warming trend.

“Using the NASA data from 2010 the surface temperature globally from 1940 until today has fallen by 1.110°C, and since 2000 it has fallen 0.4223°C […]. The cooling has hit every continent except for Australia, which warmed by 0.6339°C since 2000. The figures for Europe: From 1940 to 2010, using the data from 2010, there was a cooling of 0.5465°C and a cooling of 0.3739°C since 2000.” 

So when all the adjustments are taken out, the Earth turns out to have been cooling for the past 70 years, not warming.

    the data measured since 1881 were altered so that they showed a significant warming, especially after 1950.

    I have almost less interest in the whole ‘Global Warming’ thing than I do in the daily “New study shows” headlines in The Bestes Frau In The Whole WhoGivesAFuckHowWarmorCold World’s Daily Little Englander. But just for shit and giggles and because it is 01:30 and the amitriptyline hasn’t yet kicked in, I read the German article you link to.

    The comments raise the interesting point that the historical data was wildly inaccurate and was ‘corrected’ rather ‘falsified’. Which to my lay, very lay and unscientific, mind does sound kinda plausible…I’m sure measuring techniques in 1880 were really not as precise as those today.
    As my Ol’ Dad, an autodidact from the Bombsites who went from tea-boy at a research Lab to Head Ober Chemist, was wont to say when questioned about such scientific, uhm, ‘ controversies’: *insert Cockney vowels* “Yer pays yer money and yer makes yer Choice…already”

    • The Blocked Dwarf says:

      *edit “rather than ‘falsified’. “

    • Frank Davis says:

      I don’t see how the measurements can be ‘corrected’. ‘Editing’ the raw data is the greatest crime in science. It ought to be kept sacred, untouchable.

      • The Blocked Dwarf says:

        ‘Editing’ the raw data is the greatest crime in science.

        Au contraire, the greatest crimes in science are 1.being right and 2. having been anywhere near a cigarette in the last 50 years or admitting to having once said ‘hello’ to someone whose brother’s wife’s aunt once jobbed part time for Big Tobacco. Option 2 precluding any chance of option 1 kicking in.

  2. I noted in at least one news story about the event that Turkey claimed they had warned the pilot some X number of times in the five minutes leading up to it that the plane was within X kilometers of the border. Conspicuously absent was any claim that they’d warned the plane that it was actually OVER the border.

    It was probably a very stupid mid-lower-level action by some trigger happy pilot or unit within the Turkish air force after a briefing hours/days earlier where some general had said “We must strictly enforce our air borders!” (without ever thinking in terms of a five or ten or even sixty second violation as being actionable.)

    From what I can see, Turkey should apologize profusely and pay reparations. Meanwhile Russia should ALSO apologize for not regulating its pilots better and pledge to make stronger efforts to respect the border.

    Yeah, right, I can just see those two countries falling all over themselves to apologize to each other.


    – MJM
    P.S. News Flash! The Turkish Government has declared the Shoot Down was JUSTIFIED! The Turk pilot’s long range scanner had picked up the fact that the Russian pilot was **SMOKING** and that simply could NOT be tolerated in the clean airspace over Turkey!*

    *Note for humor impaired Antis: that was a joke, OK?

    • harleyrider1978 says:

      Very rarely Mike do things happen by happenchance,they are usually orchestrated at some point by political agenda. Even when the duke and dutchess were shot in Sareajo by a Bosnian serb it was a planned attack by a political group of nationalists. They had several assassination teams in the city that day and were finally nailed by the lone wolf whose pistol was supplied by the nationalists.

      That’s not to say a pilot and a air controller on the ground didn’t just do it on their own accord. But odds are turkey did it with full faculty and was asked to create an incident.

      The question is who wanted or had to gain by a incident that could easily broaden a war into a global war.

    • smokingscot says:

      Harley has mentioned this below, however raedwald broke the news yesterday and it’s certainly worth a gander (it is short and to the point).

  3. John Watson says:

    While under International law Turkey may indeed be justified in shooting down military or even civilian flights within their airspace there were certainly other options open to them, they could have forced a turn away in international airspace ( a normal intercept for the RAF when aircraft approach UK airspace without a flight plan), they could have forced the offending aircraft to land at a designated airfield, or allow the overflight and complain via the Embassy, or as here shoot it down. Given the distances and timescales the first two options are clearly difficult to enforce, leaving either allowing the overflight and complaining or shooting down the aircraft. In this case I think Turkey would have been better off allowing the overflight and complaining to Russia telling them that further violations of sovereign airspace could see the offending aircraft shot down. That would have made Russian pilots more careful and defined the limits for Turkish pilots to open fire as well, also it would have given Turkey a stronger case under international law, a better option than the tension caused by a possibly unwarned shoot down. I do suspect though having warned the Russian pilot ten times he would have been warned that he would be fired on but only the ATC tapes hold the answer to that.

  4. DICK R says:

    The question should be asked just how much of a threat to Turkey could a single aircraft be .

    • harleyrider1978 says:

      None Unless intelligence gathered identified ISIS targets within turkey itself. We must remember Bloomberg gave the top dog in turkey some 350 million dollars last year to implement even further punishment on smokers. No doubt we will find the same political will behind the bans is also behind starting ww3.

      • slugbop007 says:

        Bloomberg describes tobacco companies as perpetrators of “murder” while Erdoğan likens cigarette-selling to terrorism, the article says. What a joke.
        Are you sure it was 350 million to Turkey?

        • harleyrider1978 says:

          Bloomberg states he has donated 7 million to Turkish anti smoking efforts buthe gave much more in other so called areas. It appears Erdogan and Bloomberg are big time buddies and it was erdogen who ordered the Russian jet shot down.

          Erdoğan’s friendly chat with mob boss at wedding sparks outrage

          On a sweltering Saturday in June in Istanbul’s old city, Michael R. Bloomberg, power-dressed in a dark blue suit, monogrammed white shirt and cuff links, sat down to a late-morning breakfast with local antismoking activists on a rooftop overlooking the glittering Sea of Marmara.

          Michael Bloomberg’s Harder Sell

          The group, which included Turkish doctors and public health officials, had gathered to celebrate the surprising success of a campaign to persuade Turks, notorious for their love of tobacco, to smoke fewer cigarettes. It was a campaign formulated and funded by Bloomberg Philanthropies, the charitable foundation of Mr. Bloomberg, the former mayor of New York.

          Mr. Bloomberg was in an expansive mood, holding forth on Istanbul’s antiquities and dropping the names of Turkish big shots he has known: Muhtar Kent, the chief executive of Coca-Cola, and Ahmet Ertegun, the late rock ‘n’ roll magnate. But what Mr. Bloomberg really wanted to talk about was the success of his antismoking program in Turkey, an effort that has drawn the passionate support of his newest Turkish pal, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the former prime minister and the country’s just-elected president.

          “Turkey is a great example, and it can be translated to other countries,” Mr. Bloomberg told his breakfast companions. And who knows, he joked, his philanthropy may even win him a Nobel Prize.

          There were some cautious titters from the audience. Was Mr. Bloomberg kidding — or was he issuing a statement of intent?

          anyway I had read Bloomberg donated 350 million into turkey and it went thru erdogen to be distributed to the right kind of people. I just cant find it.

        • harleyrider1978 says:

          If bloomies talking about a success its likely as not his own folk at Johns Hopkins Public health invented it for him in his own paid for epidemiology dept there.

          bloombergs acting like he is spending a lot on his pet charities and causes with his matching grant propaganda. Hes really buying and peddling for influence in other countries just like his purchases of fatawas against smoking.

          Bloombergs a natural jew and his penny pinching ways seem to be just as tight in his public announcements of what he donates. Its what he is paying out under the table that needs exposed. People don’t show up for nothing or do what you want without being paid for it!

        • harleyrider1978 says:

          So Mr. Clinton’s name came up, as did those of the Rockefeller and Carnegie foundations and, of course, Mr. Gates, with whom Mr. Bloomberg has joined forces on several charitable initiatives.

          Mr. Bloomberg was quick to praise the generosity of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. It gave away $3.6 billion last year; Mr. Bloomberg’s foundation has given away less — $3.3 billion — in total donations to date. But he is not a fan of the Gates foundation bureaucracy. The foundation employs 1,200 people, compared with the 30 or so who work for Mr. Bloomberg’s charity.

        • harleyrider1978 says:

          30 people,it would appear Mr Bloombergs so called philanthropic motives aren’t for so called health initiatives but as TAX BREAKS for his own companies.

  5. Good stuff as usual. I thought that the Russian plane wouldn’t have been over Turkey for long, I didn’t realise it was only five seconds. Also re global cooling, that scares me a lot more than global warming so can you stop it please?

    • Frank Davis says:

      Since we’re currently in a brief interglacial period, which has already lasted about as long as the last couple of interglacials, it has always seemed to me that cooling should be much, much more worrying than warming. And also a very good reason to fill the atmosphere with as much CO2 as possible. Why aren’t people worrying about the imminent next ice age?

      • nisakiman says:

        If I was a conspiracy theorist, I would suggest that the CO2 scam which will see countries relying on unreliable energy sources is being done in the full knowledge that when the planet enters the next ice age, people won’t have access to the energy needed to keep warm and will die in their millions. It will be a catastrophic disaster which will require a single governing body to take over globally to manage the situation.

        But I’m not really a conspiracy theorist. It’s just a thought…

      • Frank, I am worried about it, the slightest dip in temperatures leads to mass starvation, as we have seen a few times in the past few thousand years.

    ‘Smokers are Labor voters’: Labor Senator hits out at Bill Shorten’s tobacco plan

    Read more:

    Opposition Leader Bill Shorten has rejected suggestions the ALP’s new tobacco excise policy is “anti-people” after a West Australian Labor Senator took him to task over the plan.

    After waking up to his worst ever polling results, Mr Shorten might have expected solace in the one place where his approval ratings could be expected to exceed 15 per cent, but the Opposition Leader’s day was only going to get worse

    A fortnight ago, Fairfax Media revealed the Labor party’s major tax reform policy would centre on a $47 billion tax grab by hitting smokers with higher taxes through to 2020. By this time, under the Labor plan, cigarettes would cost $40 a packet.

    The policy was confirmed on Tuesday and unveiled to caucus to a mixed reception.

    The right wing Senator from WA, Joe Bullock, took Mr Shorten to task, pointing out that smokers are traditionally those on lower incomes and likely Labor voters. Why would we want to hurt our own voters, Senator Bullock wondered aloud.

    Later, Senator Bullock declined to comment and referred all questions on the policy to Mr Shorten.

    The Opposition Leader said his policy was not “anti-people”.

    “I think, deep down, this passes the sort of commonsense test,” Mr Shorten said.

    “This argument, which is often used by big tobacco, says somehow making people pay more for cigarettes is anti-poor people.

    “I don’t buy the argument that somehow making people pay more for tobacco is anti-people. It is actually pro kids not learning to smoke when they are young.”

    “It is making it harder for people to smoke. It makes it easier if you have an addiction to weigh up the considerations of
    actually giving up.”

    Mr Shorten said there was a challenge for parliamentarians in how the health and education systems were funded. Asked if Labor would consider increasing taxes on alcohol, Mr Shorten did not rule out the idea.

    “In terms of that, we are focusing on this as our priority, the tobacco proposition. We are not announcing any other taxes today or in the near future,” he said.

    Increasing tobacco taxes by 12.5 per cent four more times until 2020 would reap $47.7 billion in revenue over 10 years, according to the Parliamentary Budget Office.

    Opposition sources told Fairfax Media the revenue would be used to pay for the Labor Party’s commitment to the so-called Gonski reforms for school funding.

    The source, familiar with focus groups, predicted minimal political damage from the policy announcement, saying even smokers tested in the focus groups supported higher excises.

    Mr Shorten predicted the move could even increase his polling numbers: “I predict talking about the tobacco
    excise will be received on balance pretty well,” he said.

    Treasurer Scott Morrison said Labor’s tax policy exposed the opposition as “fringe dwellers”.

    “In the year of ideas they’ve barely managed a bubble,” he said.

        $1 Cigarette Tax Hike Helps Smugglers, Not Health Outcomes

        Michigan’s proposed hike of cigarette taxes would increase smuggling rates and drive consumers to using cheaper, more dangerous tobacco products.

        $1 Cigarette Tax Hike Helps Smugglers, Not Health Outcomes

        Prohibition by price drives consumers to alternatives

        Posted by Michael D. LaFaive and Todd Nesbit, Ph.D. on November 24, 2015 at 4:30pm

        Last week, several health-related nonprofits released a poll that asked 600 voters in Michigan about the idea of increasing the cigarette tax by $1 a pack. The sponsors report strong support for an increase if the funds are channeled to health-related government spending.

        But research by the Mackinac Center for Public Policy and others has shown how very high tobacco taxes come with negative unintended consequences — and don’t necessarily improve health outcomes either.

        The Mackinac Center research focused primarily on the amount of smuggling these high taxes generate (also called “diversion”). The original 2008 study has been updated several times, and estimates the proportion of cigarettes sold in each state that are smuggled in to avoid high taxes.

        Sign Up for Email

        For Michigan, the study’s model shows that as of 2013, 25 percent of all the cigarettes smoked here were smuggled in. It shows also that raising Michigan’s $2 per pack tax by 50 percent will almost certainly drive the proportion of smuggled smokes much higher — to 35.1 percent of the total market. This would put Michigan in the top five cigarette diversion states in the nation.

        If the goal is to persuade people to quit by raising the price of cigarettes, it is undermined by the increased smuggling that accompanies a tax hike. The amount of new government money flowing into the health care sector from a tax hike is also likely to disappoint proponents.

        Those conclusions are supported by other studies, such as one titled, “Do Higher Taxes Reduce Adult Smoking” published in the Journal of Economic Inquiry in 2014. Its authors pointed out that since current smokers have demonstrated a strong preference for the habit they may resort to the illegal market for cigarettes. Their analysis found that tax increases of 100 percent will decrease adult smoking by only five percent.

        Nor will a higher tobacco tax have the hoped-for impact on smoking among young people. A 2015 National Bureau of Economic Research study found that, “Youths have become much less responsive to cigarette taxes since 2005. In fact, we find little evidence of a negative relationship between cigarette taxes and youth smoking when we restrict our attention to the period 2007-2013.”

        The occurrence of smuggling also means that declines in the sale of legally taxed cigarettes do not necessarily mean fewer people are smoking. A 2005 Journal of Health Economics paper by Mark Stehr, “Cigarette Tax Avoidance and Evasion,” argued that up to 85 percent of the change in legal sales after a tax increase can be explained by tax avoidance and evasion and not by quitting.

        A new 2015 study in the journal Marketing Science called “The Unintended Consequences of Countermarketing Strategies: How Particular Antismoking Measures May Shift Consumers to More Dangerous Cigarettes,” finds that higher taxes may cause people to seek products with higher nicotine content. This is especially true of people with lower incomes, they reported. Mackinac Center research has addressed this substitution effect, citing individuals who switch to “roll-your-own” cigarettes with loose tobacco. People who do so have the option of leaving out a filter, increasing the amount of nicotine (and tar) they ingest.

        This is hardly a complete survey of research in the field, and as usual with academic literature the findings can be mixed due to different data sets, time periods and other methodological differences. But the examples above represent some of the most recent or oft-cited scholarly papers on the subject.

        None of this, of course, will surprise students of America’s experiment in alcohol prohibition.

        The Iron Law of Prohibition states that the more intense the effort to stop consumption becomes, the more powerful the banned product becomes. For 1920s bootleggers, whiskey was where the action was, not beer, because it gave more bang for the alcohol buck.

        The same goes for nicotine in an era we have called “prohibition by price”: The product may be legal, but it has been (artificially) priced beyond the reach of many who want it.

        Cigarette tax hike advocates should undertake their own review of the evidence before advocating measures that may do more harm than good.

        Blackmarkets will truly be the undoing of the bans……..and the taxes!

    Mafia Don Erdoğan Retaliates for Russian Strike on Family …

    Alex Jones

    2 hours ago – Like a vengeful Mafia don Recep Tayyip Erdoğan shot down a Russian plane and nudged the Middle East a step closer to all-out war.

    Mafia Don Erdoğan Retaliates for Russian Strike on Family Crime Syndicate

    Dirty business deals and terrorism by the Erdoğan clan

    Kurt Nimmo | – November 25, 2015

    Like a vengeful Mafia don Recep Tayyip Erdoğan shot down a Russian plane and nudged the Middle East a step closer to all-out war.

    A few hours after the attack Obama climbed up on his soap box and said Turkey has a right to protect its national sovereignty.

    Erdoğan’s attack, however, had nothing to do with sovereignty or airspace. It was retaliation for Russia messing with his family business.

    The son of Turkey’s president is accused of making a fortune on the sale of oil stolen by the Islamic State
    Bilal Erdoğan owns several maritime companies,” writes F. William Engdahl. “He has allegedly signed contracts with European operating companies to carry Iraqi stolen oil to different Asian countries. The Turkish government buys Iraqi plundered oil which is being produced from the Iraqi seized oil wells. Bilal Erdoğan’s maritime companies own special wharfs in Beirut and Ceyhan ports that are transporting ISIS’ smuggled crude oil in Japan-bound oil tankers.”

    Map of Iraq’s oil fields and areas controlled by the Islamic State.

    According to Bilal’s father this pilfering and sale does not carry a penalty under international transportation conventions.

    However, according to Gürsel Tekin, the vice-president of the Turkish Republican Peoples’ Party, “Bilal Erdoğan is up to his neck in complicity with terrorism, but as long as his father holds office he will be immune from any judicial prosecution.”

    Tekin explains Bilal’s maritime company dealing in stolen oil and trading with the Islamic State, BMZ Ltd, is “a family business and president Erdoğan’s close relatives hold shares in BMZ and they misused public funds and took illicit loans from Turkish banks.”

    The Erdoğan clan is up to its neck in business deals with the head-choppers. Sümeyye Erdoğan, the daughter of the president, operates a “secret hospital camp inside Turkey just over the Syrian border where Turkish army trucks daily bring in scores of wounded ISIS Jihadists to be patched up and sent back to wage the bloody Jihad in Syria, according to the testimony of a nurse who was recruited to work there until it was discovered she was a member of the Alawite branch of Islam, the same as Syrian President Bashar al-Assad who Erdoğan seems hell-bent on toppling,” writes Engdahl.

    In addition to working with a fundamentalist Turkish Muslim sect to train Islamic State fighters and providing logistical support, Erdoğan “organized the pillage of Syria, dismantled all the factories in Aleppo, the economic capital, and stole the machine-tools,” according to Thierry Meyssan. “Similarly, he organized the theft of archeological treasures and set up an international market in Antioch.”

    The Russians are threatening to put these Mafia operations out of business and that provided the motivation to shoot down a Russian jet and stir the cauldron that is the Syrian “civil war,” in fact a manufactured proxy war designed to carve up the country and turn it over to a gang of psychopaths who follow a deviant sect of Saudi Wahhabism.

    Apropos the main thrust of this post, I just saw this on the BBC website:

    The WMO said their preliminary estimate, based on data from January to October, showed that the global average surface temperature for 2015 was 0.73 degrees C above the 1961-1990 average.

    Their scientists also found that global temperatures were approximately 1 degree C above the 1880-1899 period, mirroring a recent finding by the UK Met Office.


    “The state of the global climate in 2015 will make history for a number of reasons,” said WMO secretary-general Michel Jarraud.

    “2015 is likely to be the hottest year on record, with ocean surface temperatures at the highest level since measurements began. It is probable that the 1C threshold will be crossed.

    “This is all bad news for the planet.”

    If your Professor Dr. Friedrich Karl Ewert is correct in his calculations, then there’s some serious bullshit going down. I must say, the BBC article hits all the spots for hyperbolic scaremongering, which tends to induce a large degree of cynicism in me. Like anything preceded by ‘experts have said’.
