I was curious about how much rain we had in November and found this

Above average rainfall for November in Perth
November Rainfall - above average The city received 38.2 mm of rainfall over 4 days in November, compared with the average of 22 mm on about 6 days. This was the first time Perth has exceeded its average monthly rainfall, for any month, since November 2008. The wettest day in November was 22.4 mm on the 19th, which was the wettest November day for 7 years, since the 22.8 mm on the 1st November 2002. Historically, November rainfall has ranged from nil in 1891 to 73.2 mm in 1984. Last November Perth recorded 57.8 mm on 13 days.


Year to date rainfall - very much below average: The total rainfall for the 11-month period, January-November 2009, was 608.2 mm on 108 days, which was the driest January to November since 2006, then 461.6 mm. The average for the January to November period is 841 mm on about 108 days. The total rainfall for the same period last year was 796.2 mm on 110 days

Mean daily maximum temperature - near average: Perth's mean daily maximum temperature in November was 26.5°C, compared with the average of 26.2°C. Daily maxima ranged from a mild 20.2°C on the 19th to a hot 35.8°C on the 24th. Last November Perth recorded it's coldest November since 1991 with a mean daily maximum temperature of 23.6°C.
January to November mean daily maximum temperature - equal second highest on record: Perth's mean daily maximum temperature for the January to November period was 24.5°C, which was the equal second highest mean daily maximum temperature on record, along with 1988. The average for the January to November period is 24.0°C. The highest mean daily maximum temperature recorded for January to November in Perth was 24.8°C in 1978.

Very hot days: Perth can expect one day in December when the maximum temperature is 40°C or higher. The highest number of such December days was two in 1968, 1974, 1977, 1997, 2002 and 2007. The last time Perth recorded a very hot day in December was on 26 December 2007 with 44.2°C.

Hot days: On average, Perth can expect seven days in December when the maximum temperature is 32°C or higher. The highest number of hot days in December was eighteen in 1931, Perth's warmest December on record with a mean maximum temperature of 31.7°C. Last December, Perth recorded 5 hot days.

Note: Official Perth observations have been recorded at several different sites with varying instrumentation over the years, and these changes can affect the continuity of the climate record. For the current Mt Lawley site, the most significant changes of this kind relate to temperature and rain days. For that reason, current mean temperature and rain-day data quoted here are based only on readings from the Mt Lawley site, which commenced observations in 1993. Sunshine recordings are from Perth Airport and for similar reasons current means use only Perth Airport data, which commenced in 1993.

@D, a part of this might have to do with the hole in the ozone layer over Antarctica. I think by now everyone in here should know that I think that holes in the ozone layer affect the weather elsewhere.
This map of Australia shows what I'm talking about. When warm air from Australia's interior circulates over the Indian Ocean, might be where where the monsoons come from in northern WA.
As for Perth, cool air from what some call the Southern Ocean is what's influencing your weather. Without the hole in the ozone layer there, the warm air up north might make it to you.

I've never really been able to grasp global warming. It's just never felt right, or even possible. Not really something closely related to any of the fields I find interesting. For a long time, I just dismissed it as some eco-terrorist movement, that would eventually fizzle out, when some new and trendy crisis was created. It started getting my attention, when they started talking carbon tax, and spending my tax dollars to convert to solar panels and windmills. I knew from personal experiments, that solar panels aren't all that great. Basically, the global warming thing, had progressed in to costing us real money, and was likely to totally screw up life as we know it. I had to see for myself, if there was an factual basis, for all this spending and changes. Mostly, all I'm finding is a lot of marketing hype, politics, and 'shady' science. Most everything seems to come off computers, models and simulations. Basically, it's all based on a video game, nerds play.

First, one must be able to define 'global warming'. It is not possible for CO2 or any other gas or vapor to warm the Earth. You cannot create energy out of nothing. The scenario put forth by the Church of Global Warming is impossible.

ITN is dead wrong on this and has refused to discuss it. The temperature at the bottom of the atmosphere can increase without the rate of radiant energy being received increasing. That is not "creating energy" at all but rather a change in the distribution of energy. See below:

For some reason you are fixated on something, global sea level, changing so minutely it's not going to tell you anything.

Isn't it simpler to know if things are melting because you can see they have melted?

There you go again, speaking of the bottom of the atmosphere as though it is a singular temperature. Everything you have to say on the matter is summarily dismissed.

The bottom of the atmosphere is a 500 million square kilometer continuum of differing and changing temperatures ... and no one knows what the average is.

There is not a single subject composed of a multitude of molecules whose molecules don't have a multitude of varying temperatures individually. So your statement applies to everything. The temperature is simply the average of whatever you're identifying.

I have asked so many times for you to identify anything at all for which you believe the temperature can be determined and you never do.

But then the NOTHING CAN BE KNOWN objection to all debate would fall apart if you did and you do know that.

Which is why the physics models use the "body" as the atomic unit. This is the point at which you cease to be able to follow along.

[hint: if you were to simply stop trying to subdivide the atomic unit then you'd have a much easier time grasping the concepts]

No body of matter anywhere at any time can simply spontaneously increase in temperature without additional energy. This applies to the earth ... because the earth, with its atmosphere and hydrosphere, is also a body of matter.

Let me know if I'm going too fast.

I have answered you many times ... too many times.

There are two things you must do:

1) Abandon your contradiction of claiming omniscience of all temperatures regardless of volume while simultaneously claiming that temperatures cannot be known because molecules have different temperatures, and

2) Start all such questions with your target margin of error.

You have yet to meet these requirements. All people should ignore these questions of yours until you do.

I see that tmiddles is back to his "you believe that nothing can be known" bogus position assignment retort yet again...

I also concur with IBD that you, tmiddles, must do those two things first before any of us address any of your questions... I've already addressed those questions of yours countless times, and you keep falling back to your "gfm7175 believes that nothing can be known" garbage because you absolutely refuse to do the two things that IBD has detailed for you above.

The starting point for such a discussion is there. You need to do those two things before any of us can progress any further in that particular discussion with you.

You also need to answer the unanswered questions before meaningful discussion on any of those particular topics can be had....

Many of us here have led you up to the water bucket... we have even demonstrated for you precisely how to drink from it, and that it is perfectly safe to drink from. We, however, cannot force you to drink from it. You must do that on your own. Yet, if you wish to remain an ignorant, blind, stupid, truth denying, easily duped libtard, then there's nothing more that we can do for you.

Consider what averages really are... They are basically a ballpark estimate. The seldom, precisely define anything. Sometimes, they are pretty much meaningless. In your set of data, there is going to be a minimum value, and a maximum value. The average will fall in the middle. That number isn't going to be the same number, as whatever the next value added to the data set.

None as far as temperature is concerned. No gas or vapor can create out of nothing or destroy energy into nothing. See the 1st law of thermodynamics.

If a sea ice melts, it does not raise the level of the sea. The sea ice isn't melting.

I've visit Glacier National Park ever so often. The glaciers are still there. They wax and wane with the seasons, like always.

It's a very pretty park. Of course I'm rather partial to mountains.

You have no perspective.

It is not possible to measure a global sea level. There is no valid reference point.
It is not possible to measure the temperature of the Earth. Nowhere near enough instrumentation.
It is not possible to measure the global atmospheric CO2 content. Nowhere near enough instrumentation.

Define 'climate change'. Buzzword fallacy.

ITN,
Without measuring sea level can you figure out that if glaciers melt, sea level will rise?
Without measuring the temperature can you figure out that temperature will go up if co2 level increases?
Without measuring glacier content can you figure out that if temp goes up glaciers will melt?
Without measuring co2 level can you figure out that co2 level increases when "fossil fuels" are burned?

Don't waste your time with semantic arguments.

Yeah, playing with words can be fun, but it proves nothing. The main thing about all the crap quote, is does it really make any difference in the long run? Glaciers have been melting for thousands of years. At least two have gone completely in my lifetime. Ice melts, that's what it does. 80% of the planet surface is covered in water. Does a few millimeters, one way or another, really alter that a whole lot? Remember matter can neither be created, or destroyed...

If the ross ice shelf in west antarctica melts it would raise the seal level of the entire world by 10 feet.

You have no perspective.

It is not possible to measure a global sea level. There is no valid reference point.
It is not possible to measure the temperature of the Earth. Nowhere near enough instrumentation.
It is not possible to measure the global atmospheric CO2 content. Nowhere near enough instrumentation.

Define 'climate change'. Buzzword fallacy.


I am going to disagree with you again ITN.My CO2 meter is consistently giving me readings from 390-420ppm and I am satisfied.I have yet to see anyone who has an issue with this amount.The big deal is is it doing anything and the answer is not a lot.

I will be seeking the tide readings at Fremantle since 1886 as it has been recorded.My new problem is some uni students are digitizing the data and I have their names and E-mails and I will need to verify have they altered the data to show a sea level rise that does not exist like the BOM are doing with temperature data.I could cherry pick Carnarvon jetty as a reference as it was one of my favorite fishing destinations.At the moment more than half the jetty is out the water but that is due to sedimentation from the river mouth and flooding not sea levels falling

ITN,
Without measuring sea level can you figure out that if glaciers melt, sea level will rise?

No. It is not possible to measure either the total snow and ice on Earth nor the global sea level.
keepit wrote:

Yes. It cannot. No gas or vapor is capable of warming the Earth. You can't create energy out of nothing.

Irrelevant question.
keepit wrote:
Without measuring co2 level can you figure out that co2 level increases when "fossil fuels" are burned?

Yes. We don't burn fossils for fuel. The result is zero.

No, it wouldn't change the sea level at all.

Okay. Let's see your counter-argument.

The answer of zero, zip, nada. nan. CO2 has NO capability to warm the Earth. You can't create energy out of nothing.

Fremantle is not global sea level. It is not possible to measure the temperature of the Earth.

Unfortunately, Carnaryon jetty is not the global sea level either.

Pretty common.

Yeah, I remember that from the Al Gore award winning, Sci-Fi movie. You do realize the ice shelf is already part of the ocean? Melted or solid, sea level will remain the same. See the ice cube in a glass of Kentucky Corn Whiskey example...

Consider rainfall... Where does all that water come from? Where does a lot of it wind up? It rains a lot of oceans, just that nobody really cares about water, falling into more water. I've never really had any interest in looking up total annual rainfall, but it's probably quite a lot. We get storms often, that dump 2-3 inches, in about an hour. Hurricanes dump a whole lot more, and last longer.

Ice melts in the summer, reforms in the winter, life goes on. Nature is awesome...

Glaciers and snow fields also come from the oceans. ALL snow and rain, lakes, rivers, streams, glaciers, ALL of it, comes from the oceans.

Sure, all that h2o you mention is part of the water cycle. So what.
The point is that the ross ice shelf isn't sea ice, it's a glacier which means that when it melts (or any other glacier) it adds to the sea level.

It's floating on the water, dumbass, and it isn't melting.

It's mostly on land and partly suspended over water last time i checked. Were you down there to check on it personally?

They call it a shelf because it's hanging over the water.

Just a question. If we burn all the coal, would the atmosphere get denser because there would be more CO2? What happens to the temperature if the atmosphere gets denser?

It's attach to land, but still right on the surface of the ocean. As it melts, chunks break loose, and are free-floating, called icebergs... It's really no different from the ice on ponds and lakes in the winter. That ice is also attached to the bank, but it's still floating on the surface

The ross ice shelf is mostly above water, unlike an iceberg which is mostly below the water. That is why the ross will add to sea level while an iceberg won't.

Every wonder why ice floats...

Lets go back to rainfall for a minute... That water comes out of the ocean, pretty much constantly, but it isn't constantly raining. Does your rising sea level measurements take that into account? There must be about as many rain gauges, as thermometers. Never really seen those measurements to show how many gallons of water fell. But should show how many inches of water didn't fall back into the oceans.
