But you said that the cause of the “sky hum” can lie within Earth’s core as well, what does it mean?There is one more possible cause of these sounds and it may lie at the Earth’s core. The fact is that the acceleration of the drift of the Earth’s north magnetic pole which increased more than fivefold between 1998 and 2003 and is at the same level today points to intensification of energy processes in the Earth’s core, since it is processes in the inner and outer core that form the Earth’s geomagnetic field. Meanwhile, as we have already reported, on November 15, 2011 all ATROPATENA geophysical stations which record three-dimensional variations of the Earth’s gravitational field almost simultaneously registered a powerful gravitational impulse. The stations are deployed in Istanbul, Kiev, Baku, Islamabad and Yogyakarta, with the first and last one being separated by a distance of about 10,000 km. Such a phenomenon is only possible if the source of this emanation is at the Earth’s core level. That huge energy release from the Earth’s core at the end of the last year was some kind of a start signal indicating the transition of the Earth’s internal energy into a new active phase. www.kipnews.org...

Australia yes. Globally no.

The El Niño-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) remains neutral, with virtually all indicators at near-normal levels. Only cloudiness near the Date Line shows a weak La Niña-like signal. International climate models surveyed by the Bureau of Meteorology indicate that the tropical Pacific will remain ENSO-neutral for the remainder of 2013. Only one of the seven models surveyed suggests a brief period of La Niña-like cooling of the tropical Pacific.
The negative Indian Ocean Dipole (IOD) event has weakened considerably over the past month and a half, with IOD-neutral values prevailing since early August. The consensus of climate models is for the IOD to remain neutral for the remainder of the year, suggesting that the 2013 negative IOD is most likely at an end.
Next update expected on 24 September 2013
We can discuss what the PDO is and what it isn't, how it affects SST, SLP or deep ocean upwelling, its relation to ENSO etc.
Numerous studies have attempted to determine the effect of the PDO and ENSO on each other. The results have been largely inconclusive and/or contradictory. However, a study by Gershunov and Barnett (1998) shows that the PDO has a modulating effect on the climate patterns resulting from ENSO. The climate signal of El Niño is likely to be stronger when the PDO is highly positive; conversely the climate signal of La Niña will be stronger when the PDO is highly negative. This does not mean that the PDO physically controls ENSO, but rather that the resulting climate patterns interact with each other.

I would like to know, do you think your level of denial could be a coping mechanism?
I think there is a selfish ingredient to the denial of what is clearly obvious at this point.
I am not trained in, nor self-informed about, the subject of, well, whatever it's being called now. It had been global cooling, then global warming, then anthropocentric global warming, then climate change. See how ignorant of the science I am?
If one scientist raises an objection that the theory can't fit or explain, then the theory is flawed and has to be worked on some more.
Politics is the field for majority rule, not science. As a climate outsider, but a moderately educated one, I find the constant hysteria over climate (going back at least 40 years), the insistence that the absolute truth has been found, and the requirement that life on earth must be fundamentally changed, seems to sound more like hysterical alarmism than science.
My reference to global cooling does not refer to the current trend, but rather to the excitement in the 1970s as discussed in the book Ice Age 2000.
It would seem, and remember I'm uninformed, that current models take so few variables into account that an accurate prediction would be a statistical fluke.
Every prediction gets redone every few years to take into account new data and ideas on what might be important to the climate.
I suppose I'm not convinced that the science on the subject is robust yet. Apparently there are some scientists who agree.
Let me make sure I understand you. You are saying that the "El Nino Southern Oscillation" (ENSO), which is measured by the "Southern Oscillation Index" (SOI), which in turn is defined as the "Mean Sea Level Pressure difference between Tahiti and Darwin", is somehow different for Australia than it is for, say Brazil or Russia? Is that right?
They influence each other and produce similar effects, but at different latitudes.
Wiki gets it right sometimes
Several studies have indicated that the PDO index can be reconstructed as the superimposition of tropical forcing and extra-tropical processes. Thus, unlike ENSO, the PDO is not a single physical mode of ocean variability, but rather the sum of several processes with different dynamic origins.
ENSO-Forced Variability of the Paciﬁc Decadal Oscillation
The PDO is dependent upon ENSO on all timescales. To the ﬁrst order, the PDO can be considered the reddened response to both atmospheric noise and ENSO, resulting in more decadal variability than either. This null hypothesis needs to be considered when diagnosing and modeling ‘‘internal’’ decadal variability in the North Paciﬁc.
For example, the observed spatial pattern of Paciﬁc SST decadal variability, with relatively higher amplitude in the extratropics than in the Tropics, should be at least partly a consequence of a reddened ENSO response.
The confusion occurs because there is some correlation of the PDO between consecutive summers, but this is likely a consequence of the annual cycle of ENSO and the strong ENSO–PDO relationship that exists in both summer and winter; that is, a growing ENSO forces the PDO in summer, the subsequent mature phase of ENSO forces the PDO the following winter/spring, and this North Paciﬁc SST anomaly then persists into the early part of the following summer.

Anyone who has children and grandchildren should recognize this.
The way I see it, they keep saying nothing big is going to happen for a hundred years, because that is so far in the future, no one seriously worries about it, but when I look at the data, I see serious changes in the next couple of decades.
But what we might consider softer fraud—or "undisclosed flexibility" in data collection—is well documented and appears to be very widespread.

Over the past few years, there has been a growing awareness that many experimentally established "facts" don't seem to hold up to repeated investigation.
This was highlighted in a 2010 article in the New Yorker entitled The Truth Wears Off and since then, there have been many popular press accounts of different aspects of science's current reproducibility crisis.
These include an exposé of the increasing number of retractions by scientific journals and damning demonstrations of failures to replicate high profile studies.
Articles in recent days have discussed how the majority of scientists might be more interested in funding and fame than "truth" and are becoming increasingly reluctant to share unpublished details of their work.
