But alas, that wasn’t the case. In an April 20 Reuters article on this proclamation, it was revealed that the winter season is apparently shrinking due to “spring creep”. Oddly, there was no mention of a corresponding “summer creep”, which logically should occur if the world is getting warmer. However, these are activist scientists, not logisticians.
As explained by one Concerned Scientist:
Ecological mismatches can be fatal when some species adapt to early warmth and others don't, according to Jake Weltzin of the U.S. Geological Survey.After a little research, I found that Mr. Weltzin has made similar proclamations over the past decade or so. In fact, last spring he was quoted in a Seattle Times article stating the following:
Weltzin described a series of mysterious miscarriages by mares in the U.S. southeast that were caused by caterpillars that contained a chemical that made the pregnant horses miscarry.
Normally, the caterpillars would have been consumed by migrating birds, leaving none to fall from trees into the mares' grassy pastures. But the birds' migration was late, letting the caterpillars fall from trees and into the grass the mares were eating, Weltzin said.
The birds used to arrive in Europe and nest in time for their chicks to take advantage of a seasonal caterpillar explosion. But the caterpillars now peak 16 days earlier. As a result, chicks are starving and some flycatcher populations have plummeted 90 percent.Mismatches, indeed. Are birds migrating later or caterpillars peaking earlier due to global warming? The narrative seems to creep like the spring.
"These mismatches in timing could be happening all over," said Jake Weltzin…
More amazingly, the same 2009 article reported that spring “is about a week earlier than it was 50 years ago.” Does that mean that winter is shrinking by three days each year? If true, by my calculation winter should disappear entirely by 2037.
Wow, that closely matches up with the IPCC scientists’ report that the Himalayan glaciers will disappear by then. Oh, but that was revealed in the Climategate scandal to be “voodoo science”, conjured up to inflame the public with fear in order to promote a global warming political agenda. I’m sure the Concerned Scientists Union report is completely different.
