  • Here’s some current information that I believe will enlighten the serious minded attempting to grapple with the complexities of global warming science.

    There is no doubt that the United Nations IPCC’s version of global warming is winning the public relations battle. The proof is that our governments are now implementing public policy intended to reduce the rise of the earth’s temperature.

    For those who are paying serious attention however, it is increasingly difficult to comprehend how they can justify discounting the growing chorus of dissenting views and agreeing with VP Gore that dissenters are corrupt quacks.

    Here are two current examples:

    UN Blowback: More Than 650 International Scientists Dissent Over Man-Made Global Warming Claims

    If all these guys are quacks, then Donald Duck deserves new respect.

    Then there’s this report that challenges the validity of IPCC’s climate models:
    http://www.aps.org/units/fps/newsletters/200807/monckton.cfm

    The study’s conclusion is worthy of serious consideration:
    “Even if temperature had risen above natural variability, the recent solar Grand Maximum may have been chiefly responsible. Even if the sun were not chiefly to blame for the past half-century’s warming, the IPCC has not demonstrated that, since CO2 occupies only one-ten-thousandth part more of the atmosphere that it did in 1750, it has contributed more than a small fraction of the warming. Even if carbon dioxide were chiefly responsible for the warming that ceased in 1998 and may not resume until 2015, the distinctive, projected fingerprint of anthropogenic “greenhouse-gas” warming is entirely absent from the observed record. Even if the fingerprint were present, computer models are long proven to be inherently incapable of providing projections of the future state of the climate that are sound enough for policymaking. Even if per impossibilethe models could ever become reliable, the present paper demonstrates that it is not at all likely that the world will warm as much as the IPCC imagines. Even if the world were to warm that much, the overwhelming majority of the scientific, peer-reviewed literature does not predict that catastrophe would ensue. Even if catastrophe might ensue, even the most drastic proposals to mitigate future climate change by reducing emissions of carbon dioxide would make very little difference to the climate. Even if mitigation were likely to be effective, it would do more harm than good: already millions face starvation as the dash for biofuels takes agricultural land out of essential food production: a warning that taking precautions, “just in case”, can do untold harm unless there is a sound, scientific basis for them. Finally, even if mitigation might do more good than harm, adaptation as (and if) necessary would be far more cost-effective and less likely to be harmful.
    In short, we must get the science right, or we shall get the policy wrong. If the concluding equation in this analysis (Eqn. 30) is correct, the IPCC’s estimates of climate sensitivity must have been very much exaggerated. There may, therefore, be a good reason why, contrary to the projections of the models on which the IPCC relies, temperatures have not risen for a decade and have been falling since the phase-transition in global temperature trends that occurred in late 2001. Perhaps real-world climate sensitivity is very much below the IPCC’s estimates. Perhaps, therefore, there is no “climate crisis” at all. At present, then, in policy terms there is no case for doing anything. The correct policy approach to a non-problem is to have the courage to do nothing.”

    While the global warming alarmists have done a masterful public relations job in promoting their agenda, they are losing badly in the areas of science, logic and common sense.

  • Major parts of Antarctica are cooler! Wow! You found one place of the world that is getting cooler rather than warmer! If only the North American and European anomalies weren't looking at an average of +2 degrees centigrade per century over the last 25 years! And the Arctic Ice mass hadn't decreased by 1/3 last summer... I'm willing to look at the few places in the world that are getting cooler if you are willing to look at the majority of the places on the planet getting warmer!
