Reply to article from Joe Bastardi: Heidi Cullen - Stop pretending it’s not climate change
Open question for Heidi Cullen and her ilk by Joe Bastardi:
Do you even follow what is going on beyond anything that serves your agenda. Have you even looked, or even thought about, the physical implications of the energy loss that the cold PDO creates to the entire climate system?
DO YOU EVEN LOOK AT THE RECORD COLD MID TROPOSPHERIC TEMPERATURES, ESPECIALLY 400 MB WHERE THE TRAPPING HEAT WAS SUPPOSE TO SET OFF THE TIPPING POINT FEEDBACK, AND ASK HOW CAN RECORD COLD BE GOING ON HERE IF ALL THIS IS A SIGN OF WARMING?
How can we cool the central tropical Pacific, and then the atmosphere above, and then come to the conclusion that warmth is occurring and leading to the perceived increase in extremes. If defies all logic of any rational, free thinking person, yet alone scientist.
You need to explain this, and also need to tell us if you even look at these things. I can not believe you have watched these levels and it not present a major challenge to your thinking on this!
