Fool On The Hill » Blog Archive » Global Warming – riiiiiiiight

This post is added to from time to time. I’ve tried to keep this topic in one place.
(last updated October 2010)

NOTE – with the exposure of the Climategate Scandal, I’ve decided that there is no longer any point to make here and I’ll not post any further updates to this thread. There is NO EVIDENCE of Anthropogenic Global Warming. There is no data that wasn’t made up. There is no peer review that wasn’t compromised. There is no method to construct the models. We have been lied to and conspired against. Anything else they may have to say will fall on deaf ears. Stick a fork in Global Warming, it’s done.

The UN wants us all to ratify the Kyoto treaty which would empower the UN to tax/ fine the US for not reducing our “carbon footprint”. Al Gore is a politician; his crockumentary was based on some bogus google-type research. It’s all hysteria-based nonsense that has captured very ignorant people who have bought into the entire idea that people can control the climate. His so-called scientific consensus is based on a select group of non-climate “scientists” who agreed with their own UN report.

Ice sheets
One day we read about how fast the Artic ice is refreezing –

the next we read about how much it’s melting –
http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/science/nature/7006640.stm
isn’t the Antarctic ice sheet growing?

http://www.worldclimatereport.com/index.php/2005/05/27/antarctic-ice-a-global-warming-snow-job/
I also remember about a big iceberg that broke off of Antarctica – it was the biggest ever in the history of the world. Surely this must mean something…… flips page on GWer’s Popular Topic pad to, uh oh, I don’t know!
“Is an iceberg this large important, or is it insignificant? We don’t know.”

Chicken Little
How do I know that the GWers are full of hogwash? Al Gore is their champion!

It’s easy to measure temperature – these idiots think they know why and how to change it. We’ve all heard this before, global freezing, el nino, ozone holes etc. The temperature on Mars has risen in parallel with Earth’s. I wonder whose fault that is and what easy solutions the GWs can come up with. There are motives for everything they do and they aren’t altruistic

I saw a video that showed how dramatically the temperature has changed over the past 50 years compared with the previous 1200. Their numbers were all based on models that predicted what it would have been if man hadn’t interfered. This proved that evil man has caused this rise.

Fractional Changes
These guys are GWers –
“The global average land surface temperature in 2007 was forecast to reach 0.67 degrees Celsius above the mean average temperature of the 30-year period from 1971 to 2000.
In 2005 and 2006, the global average land surface temperature was 0.58 degrees Celsius above the mean from 1971 to 2000. cientists say global average temperatures will rise by between 1.8 degrees to 4.0 degrees Celsius due to carbon emissions, likely increasing risks of melted ice caps, floods and famines.”

Ok now, we can measure some fractional increases over short periods and we *may* eventually get up to whole numbers at some unspecified point in the future, spelling doom on the human race.

Stewardship
I am not stupid – we may be getting warmer. This is easy to measure empirically. I simply disagree with the notion that it’s all caused by man and even more strongly disagree with the idea that we can change it significantly. I think we should do what we can do. This is just good stewardship.

What about cow farts?
“And some time ago we told you that lawmakers in Europe were concerned that natural emissions from livestock are more harmful to the planet than pollutants from planes, trains, and automobiles. Now the London Sun reports an official European Union declaration is demanding changes to the diets of cows and sheep – and ways to capture their gas emissions and recycle manure. The document warns “the livestock sector presents the greatest threat to the planet.” The U.N. says livestock farming produces 18 percent of all greenhouse gasses – while all forms of transportation generate 14 percent.”

Let me get this straight – cows are worse than cars – no way! Eat the cows I say!

Faulty data? Y2K Strikes Again!
From DAILY TECH by Michael Asher
http://www.dailytech.com/article.aspx?newsid=8383
“Years of bad data corrected; 1998 no longer the warmest year on record
My earlier column this week detailed the work of a volunteer team to assess problems with US temperature data used for climate modeling. One of these people is Steve McIntyre, who operates the site climateaudit.org. While inspecting historical temperature graphs, he noticed a strange discontinuity, or “jump” in many locations, all occurring around the time of January, 2000.
These graphs were created by NASA’s Reto Ruedy and James Hansen (who shot to fame when he accused the administration of trying to censor his views on climate change). Hansen refused to provide McKintyre with the algorithm used to generate graph data, so McKintyre reverse-engineered it. The result appeared to be a Y2K bug in the handling of the raw data.
McKintyre notified the pair of the bug; Ruedy replied and acknowledged the problem as an “oversight” that would be fixed in the next data refresh.
NASA has now silently released corrected figures, and the changes are truly astounding. The warmest year on record is now 1934. 1998 (long trumpeted by the media as record-breaking) moves to second place.  1921 takes third. In fact, 5 of the 10 warmest years on record now all occur before World War II.  Anthony Watts has put the new data in chart form, along with a more detailed summary of the events.
The effect of the correction on global temperatures is minor (some 1-2% less warming than originally thought), but the effect on the U.S. global warming propaganda machine could be huge.
Then again — maybe not. I strongly suspect this story will receive little to no attention from the mainstream media.”

Twelve-month long drop in world temperatures wipes out a century of warming
Temperature Monitors Report Widescale Global Cooling – OK I’m confused. Help me out here Al, is global warming all washed up?

♦ What our teachers are feeding our kids
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mF_anaVcCXg

I saw this video of a school teacher who tries to post some rational thoughts about what our response should be to GW. He makes a simple box with 4 squares in it. The axes are:

Global Warming
No Global Warming
vs.
Take Action
Take No Action

Only the ‘Take Action’ outcomes are happy or at least not bad. He proposes that this should direct our future course. We should all get behind GW because it’s the only course of action that ends happily. Unfortunately this is just too simple. If this sort of logic was valid our churches would be full. Being a Christian is the only choice that can end happily. GW is your religion, not mine!

Consensus?
A very interesting story about how there really isn’t any concensus in the real scientific community –Global warming hysteria challenged

Ambulance Chasing
I recently read Big Al ranting about how the horrible hurricane in Myanmar was all predicted and stuff in his new book on Global warming. Read the article – HERE. It turns out that Al’s claims are complete hogwash – imagine that. He claims that the killer typhoon was caused by global warming heating up the ocean. The only problem is that in this part of the world, ocean temperatures are falling. He’ll do anything sell his new book. He has now lowered himself to chasing ambulances.

Sunspots
I just read a story about an article written in the journal Nature about how the lack of sunspot activity will cause global cooling (not warming) over the next ten years or so. There actually seems to be a correlation between the Earth’s temperature and the Sun. They were also very quick and PC to point out that this new data does nothing to change their minds about how humans are solely responsible for Global Warming. Read the story – HERE

CO2
Carbon Dioxide is the enemy right? It turns out this isn’t really the case. All of the GW efforts to reduce our carbon footprint and even worse, the sequestration of CO2 may actually be harming the Ecosystem. Our biosphere loves carbon dioxide. It’s like fertilizer. When you combine some extra CO2 with higher temperatures, the biosphere literally explodes with life. Read this very interesting article in the Financial Post.

Maybe we should call him Jor-Al….. (c8

♦ News Flash!
Recent research reveals that Global… err Planetary Warming is spreading throughout the Solar System. What have we done? I wonder if Al knows about this….

Global Warming might actually cool things off?
I’m so confused. Read the article HERE on Sustainablog

I always felt that the GWers were way off track
That’s actually putting it mildly. Any movement that would have Al Gore as their champion can’t be too smart. It seems that every nut was on his bandwagon. He even won a Nobel prize and had a movie. Now it seems that he really was just full of poo the whole time! At December’s U.N. Global Warming conference in Poznan, Poland, 650 of the world’s top climatologists stood up and said man-made global warming is a media generated myth without basis. The evidence is mounting – CO2 levels are BS, Icecap shrinkage is BS, and even rising temperatures are BS. To think, early last year, liberals suggested we spend 45 trillion dollars and give up five million jobs to fix global warming. I have a simple rule – the more people yap about something and the louder they yap, the lower the truthiness……. (c8

Sea Ice at Highest Level Since 1979

♦ Gotta love a good petition
http://www.petitionproject.org/

♦ Wobbly theories…
Amazing idea! Climate change may actually be caused by the relationship between the Earth and the sun.
http://www.abc.net.au/science/articles/2009/08/14/2655852.htm

Some news from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)
Why are we still talking about Cap & Trade and Sequestration. It’s over the mighty Oz has been exposed.
http://www.noaanews.noaa.gov/stories2009/20090910_summerstats.html
As messed up as Bill Clinton was (he did pick Al for his VP) at least he never signed that stupid Kyoto treaty.

Finally some context
After hearing about The One’s Nobel Peace Prize this morning I finally have some context to help me put Big Al’s prize into context. They are both equally baseless and were given solely to try to influence the course of action that the Elites want the US to take. The One was actually more qualified to win the Prize in Chemistry (it’s widely acknowledged that he has good chemistry).

Why you can’t believe anything he says
Al Gore is an IDIOT by the numbers
Found some video of of this event – HERE

I thought this was all settled (I know I said I wouldn’t post anymore – sigh)

Former president of the American Physical Society resigns from the society over climate driven corruption in the society.

You can read the resignation letter HERE.
