CLIMATEGATE 2: The sequel

Last night, as I was reading through the highlights of the newest batch of Climategate emails, I decided to start tweeting some of the high  (low) points.  You can follow me on twitter at twitter.com/stu_gbp.  You can read more on all the new email fun from scientists that are setting trillions of dollars of global policy here.

 

But for now, some of the early stand out moments from Climategate 2…

 

Climategate 2: “One way to cover yourself…would be to delete all emails at the end of the process”.

 

Climategate 2: “I am not convinced that the “truth” is always worth reaching if it is at the cost of damaged personal relationships”

 

Climategate 2: “the important thing is to make sure they’re loosing the PR battle. That’s what the site [Real Climate] is about.”

 

Climategate 2: “What if climate change appears to be just mainly a multidecadal natural fluctuation? They’ll kill us probably”

 

Climategate 2: “the science is being manipulated to put a political spin on it…might not be too clever in the long run.”

 

Climategate 2:”I find myself…being very skeptical of the quality of all reconstructions, yet sounding like a pro greenhouse zealot here!”

 

Climategate 2: “This is just downright dangerous. We need to communicate the uncertainty and be honest.”

 

Climategate 2: “Basic problem is that all models are wrong – not got enough middle and low level clouds.”

 

Climategate 2: “Any work we have done in the past is done on the back of the research grants we get – and has to be well hidden.”

 

Climategate 2: “500 million people are expected to watch The Day After Tomorrow. We must pray that they pick up that message.”

 

Climategate 2: “there have been a number of dishonest presentations of model results by individual authors and by IPCC”

 

Climategate 2: We “Need to convince readers that there really has been an increase in knowledge – more evidence. What is it?”

 

Climategate 2: The government wants “the story to be a very strong one and don’t want to be made to look foolish.”

 

Climategate 2:”Somehow we have to leave them thinking OK, climate change is extremely complicated,BUT I accept that people are affecting it”

 

Climategate 2: “I agree with Nick that climate change might be a better labelling than global warming”

 

Climategate 2:”would you agree there is no convincing evidence for kilimanjaro melt being due to recent warming-let alone man-made?”

 

Climategate 2: “He’s skeptical that the warming is as great as we show inEast Antarctica…I cannot argue he is wrong.”

    Ah yes I can see the headlines now for the movie:

    “CLIMATE GATE 2: Here we go again with the lies and spin…”

    Facts are very clear in the matter, they distorted and fabricated the data they started with to achieve a desired end result — fraud and conspiracy in the clear.

    Just because many prominent people sincerely believe and promote that the world is flat, and a few popular naysayers do not, does not mean it is not so.  (Take the risk and join those few kooks who say it is an oblate spheroid.)

    The question that everyone should be asking, If those in the government, Either dem or repub, and they were working for you, would you pay them. I think both the senate and the house members should be ashame of what they are doing, And I for one would like to see everyone of those incomponets fired, 2012 we will have a chance to clear the mess up or at least start. If the person is up for reelection and has been there for more that two terms, Then it is the responsibility of every voter to vote these over educated, over payed, and underworked creeps out of office, Because if you think they are looking out for your interest, them you deserve them, and you can keep kissing your frog and “HOPE” he/she will turn into a fairy God Mother, Because that’s all you will have. And of course the useless occupiers, as a side show. Peace!!!!

    The ugly reality is we can trust no one today. This country will fail when people in all our of institutions, businesses, courts, academia, science, medicine and the media are mostly dishonest, corrupt, power-hungry, immoral and unethical. But that is to be expected when the One who, as the creator of all, has been thrown aside, forgotten, mocked, disparaged, blasphemed, and taken out of our political as well as individual lives.

    I find it hard to believe that people can be so dense. Have they forgotten the cycles our Earth has already gone through? Example: the Ice Ages and we’ve managed to survive. Remember the old commercial? “It’s not nice to fool Mother Nature” and that’s exactly what they seem to be doing. God and nature take care of things if we’d all just stay out of the way. If the earth didn’t have ‘climate change’ then how would we ever have the seasons? Just another sleazy way for someone to make a buck, and frankly, I don’t think Gore, the instigator (or is it inventor) would know climate change if it came up and slapped him in the face!

    There are 600 year, 8,000 year, and 20,000 year cycles that have to do with our solar system moving through our Milky Way galaxy.  The 20,000 year cycle has MASIVE climate changes over most areas of the planet.  This is normal.  Just like the Moon (and Sun) pulls at the water of the oceans causing tides, the movement of the Earth through our Milky Way galaxy causes equally strong pull on the entire planet, bulging our liquid iron core and deforming it, causing tectonic plate shifts and massive earthquakes.

    The Krakatoa volcanic eruption of 1883 released more “greenhouse” gases than the entire manmade output since the dawn of the Industrial Revolution, and then some.  The blast (August 26-27, 1883) released more energy than 13,000 A-bombs equal to that which devastated Hiroshima at the end of WW II.  AND, it ejected roughly 5 cubic miles of dirt, rock, ash, and pyroclastic into the atmosphere.  That is a chunk of Earth 5 miles wide by 5 miles thick and 5 miles long in one 24 hour period.  The shock wave from the explosion reverberated around the earth 7 times and weather patterns were disrupted for years.  The Earth’s regional temperatures did not return to normal until 1888 or 5 years later.  This from just one volcano that obliterated a large island, upwards of 120,000 persons regionally, and disrupted vast areas of the Earth’s climate.  ALL of its destructive effects were absorbed, washed, and rinsed away in a few short years (geologically speaking) with verdant jungles, vast populations of organisms, and even man returning almost immediately afterwards.  That was JUST one volcano, and they go off all the time, just not as cataclysmic as this one, all at once.  Mankind, with all our cooking pits, ovens, cars, furnaces, factories, power plants, smelters, refineries, ironworks, steelworks, nuclear tests, rockets into space, etc., etc., etc… –  LOTS of heat energy released and LOTS of greenhouse gasses, small by comparison.
     
    In short, all the heat energy and resultant warming, all the greenhouse gasses trapping that heat and all the bogus science from the anthropogenic global warming quacks does not hold a candle (pun intended) nor put a dent in the heat absorbed by the Earth from solar irradiance on a regular day.  ALSO, every once-in-awhile when a really good solar flare erupts in the direction of Earth, we get bathed in plasma energy and heat that is so strong and intense that it can disrupt the flow of electrons in the wires of the electrical grid, fry circuit panels in satellites, and bend radio waves to where they are indecipherable by receivers.  THAT is climate change in the birthing.
     
    Our anthropogenic heat and greenhouse gas “poop” are infinitesimal in affect.  Sure, a rock thrown into a pond will create a wave and a good pee will add to the ocean, but it doesn’t have anywhere near the effect as a storm driving waves or a tropical downpour in Bangkok, which happen ALL the time, day in and day out.  The Climate Science guys and Al Gore are idiots and liars.  This is about government control and money… make no anthropological mistake about it.

    LexBob:  Thanks for all the fun-facts about climate, but you’ve come nowhere close to proving your premise (and GBs) that anthropogenic global warming (AGW) science is bad.   Sure, the sun could explode in supernova and exceed any effects CO2 emissions could have on climate.   That doesn’t mean AGW isn’t changing our climate.  AGW scientists say that the majority of temperature change over the last century is man-made, and a mountain of scientific papers supports their view.  Can you cite credible scientific papers (even one) that show something else is causing our measurable changes in climate?

  • Ryan Frederick

    it is happening but it is not us that is doing it. sun spots and other natural causes are doing it. to say that the earth is at its hotest today is also a bunch of bs. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_the_Earth look at the before and after of earth which one looks hoter number one or number two. the world full of water or the one full of lava and they are shock when we call their work fake.  Al Gore is a joke. http://youtu.be/oZrhG2iT3H0

  • KayAZ12

    Snow – Once again I say, “Facts are such a nuisance.”  Me thinks that rushing this “new science” as settled was political.  Had to get the laws in place so they wouldn’t have to deal with all the flaws and inconsistencies in their theory.

    Once science becomes law it often becomes dogma and is seldom reversed.  They’re obviously more worried about their reputations than truth and the negative effects of their proposed solutions on hundreds of millions people worldwide.

    Where are their ethics and morality?  And they say they’re the one’s who really care about people.

  • KayAZ12

    If the science hasn’t been settled on the cause (5 suggested causes) and scope (regional or global) of a recent significant event like the Little Ice Age (300-500 years ending approximately in 1850), how can they be sure the science has been settled on events that haven’t occurred?

    I’m wary of politicized science.  Political decisions involving drastic changes, having many negative impacts on societies world wide, must be taken seriously and should be based on hard and verified science.  It’s not even clear that global warming trends would be significantly changed if all the proposed measures were implemented. 

  • Anonymous

    Of course, the since the Little Ice Age ended 150+ years ago, we can’t exactly take regional/global measurements like we can today, right? 

    The science is fairly well settled on what’s already happening and measured, and these effects will increase.  Of course policy toward this should be taken seriously, though that’s not what I see happening in this country (rather science is being dismissed).

    I’m also wary of politicized science — congressman, political websites and TV networks such as this one deciding that the majority of scientists in just one field — climate science — must be wrong merely because there are political implications.  *That’s* politicized science.

  • KayAZ12

    It’s my understanding that much of the data has “gone missing” and many instruments were placed in questionable areas.

    Fairly well settled isn’t good enough, especially since the proposed solutions are so draconian.  The proponents seem to be arrogantly dismissive of even moderates on this issue.  “We’re the experts, sit down and shut up.”

    Politicization of science – then there are the government grants to scientists, let alone a lack of honest debate over opposing opinions, even from many Global Warming supporters who dare to question cause and the wisdom of the solutions proposed.

    I’m old enough to remember the impending ice age theory advanced a few decades ago.  This theory faded away without explanation.  Granted science has improved since then, but it will also improve in the future.  

    I won’t jump on the band wagon of the latest scientific theory advanced.  Further study, proof, and debate is required.  More recently unforeseen – the closing of the Antarctic ozone hole contributing to Global Warming. 

    Over time a minute miscalculation becomes more and more significant and often alters outcomes.

  • Anonymous

    “It’s my understanding that much of the data has “gone missing” and many instruments were placed in questionable areas.” — Well, then let’s see if there’s a misunderstanding.  What gave you the impression that the data that shows global warming is missing?
    “Fairly well settled isn’t good enough” — I’m talking about fairly well settled, like tobacco smoking causing cancer.  At what points was that evidence enough for action to be taken to improve public health?  (long, long ago)  And at what level of probability is AGW worth acting upon, 90%?  95%?  99%?  It’s not efficient to wait for 100% if it means the earth becoming inhospitable.

    “Politicization of science – then there are the government grants to scientists,”  Are you honestly suggesting that political parties are funding the conclusion that Global warming is human-caused?  Then why have scientists drawn the same conclusion through 5 republican administrations during the last 30 years? 

    “A lack of honest debate” — where is there a lack of honest debate?   Scientists are always debating issues, including this one.  

    “I won’t jump on the band wagon of the latest scientific theory advanced.”  How about supporting a theory that’s more than 3 decades old? That’s how long AGW theory has been around, and about how long it took to progress from Einstein’s theory of relativity to starting to make atomic bombs.  AGW is not a new theory.  

    “Over time a minute miscalculation becomes more and more significant and often alters outcomes.”  That sounds like a rationalization more than a scientific objection.  Instead show where the miscalculation is so science and the human race can benefit!

    That last comment is just priceless –
    Quote – “Can you…… show SOMETHING ELSE IS CAUSING OUR MEASURABLE CHANGES IN CLIMATE”?
    Nature????? ;)
    Can YOU show me ONE credible scientific paper that shows that the ‘human induced element’ of CO2, increases global temperatures, as is the premise of AGW (conspiracy)theorists?
    It is very difficult to discuss every facet of this sham on this forum (so many strands of horsesh*t to discuss at any one time).
    For info, your abit out of date with your knowledge, AGW is so yesterday (almost literally) its all about the extreme weather phenomena now, please catch up ;)
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-15698183
    By all accounts, our (humans) air conditioning, flat screen TVs, SUVs and flatulence, is going to increase weather??? Aren’t we all just evil??? 
    DON’T PANIC though, everything is going to be ok, because my taxes next year are apparently going to fix the global climate problem (whatever that is?) settle the weather down to a constant average (whatever that is?), and allow developing nations such as China, India, Brazil and Mexico to pump up more CO2 into the atmosphere than my country of residence ever could, but presumably this won’t affect the weather too much (nothing to see here)
    Do me a favour, could you please explain what you mean when you refer to ‘Measurable changes in climate’? There I was under the impression that historically, the climate, has constantly changed? It appears weather is a predictable, constant and never changes afterall. You learn something everyday, don’t you? ;)

    We actually have diaries,and land records in this family,dating back before that event,and including the “Little Freeze”,which describe the events leading up TO the killing winter (Spring).

    I have seen no commentary that the “Medieval Climate Optimum” hurt any populations in Europe or N. America.  Perhaps it made the English Channel easier and safer to cross in 1066 for the Normans,  I don’t know.  It made possible the colonization of Greenland by the Vikings.  (The ensuing “Little Ice Age” ended that project.)  Europe also benefited.   At this moment, in Southeast Michigan, the weather is warmer than average, although the record temperature for Nov. 23 was 68 or so, in 1927(!)  and I am quite pleased that it doesn’t freeze every night.  I have a farming background and longer seasons are good for farmers.  In the 1930′s Northern Michigan (between Mount Pleasant and Big Rapids) had about a 90 day growing season, which made farming there somewhat challenging, 90-day corn being a low-yield variety.
    Politicized science is always bad.  Remember Eugenics in the 1920′s?  Improve the population by selective breeding of humans?

    lucas4england:  As you requested, here’s one paper concluding that global warming is human-cased (anthropogenic).
    http://www.fel.duke.edu/~scafetta/pdf/2007JD008437.pdf

    Now, can you show one academic paper that shows it’s not human-caused?

    And yes, I’ll explain what I said about measurable climate change.  The *weather* changes every day.  The global global average temperature *does not*, and is remarkably stable year-to-year — makes sense considering earth is a relatively closed system (the attached paper proves that it’s not changes in solar irradiance that’s changing the temperature of the earth).  The global average temperature *is* increasing, and the increase is accelerating.  This is what’s meant by “climate change.”PS  the USA has pumped far more CO2 per capita into the atmosphere than any other country in the world.  We’re only being passed by China because they have 5X the population.

    Ryan Frederick, please see my notes in another post here about the difference between regional weather and global climate.  Summary: just because your backyard is getting colder or warmer does not mean the whole planet is; when the whole planet *is* getting warmer (which it is), eventually you’ve got much bigger problems than the weather in your backyard.

    Both Climatologists and Meteorologists are Atmospheric Scientists, but they are not the same thing.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atmospheric_sciences  Here’s an article about some of the differences: http://www.nytimes.com/2010/03/30/science/earth/30warming.html?pagewanted=all  This reminds me of psychologists and psychiatrists who often disagree when it comes to how to treat a patient — psychologists generally recommend less medication, more therapy because it’s what they’re actually qualified to do.

    Please tell me you are joking with this paper?
    a) It is from 2007, which is an age in the Climate Change field of study. As I mentioned earlier the IPCC can’t say with certainty* (this is key, no matter how you want to spin it) that global warming is occuring, will occur in the future, and what weather phenomena will increase or decrease, opting to use terms such as likely, low confidence, medium confidence etc etc. (http://ipcc-wg2.gov/SREX/)
    I will be more commited to my prediction than the IPCC. The weather/climate WILL change in the future, temps will go up and come down, depending on the comparative timescale you use, a significant factor often missed, if I look at figures over 2 years or 100 years, the results will be different than if I look at figures over 20 years or 10,000 years, see. Some figures suggest there has been no global warming for over 15 years, others do, which do you believe? I predict with 100% certainty that there WILL be future extreme weather phenomena that will be increasingly reported by the worlds media as proof of Climate Change or whatever the flavour of the month term is being banded about at that time. This will cause increased amount of death and financial disaster due to increases in population and urbanisation. Now thats commitment, I should bill the government for my services.
    This raises the question however as to why your belief in AGW is so much greater than that of the authorities who are (sort of) publishing supporting evidence and driving international policy? Are you privy to some unknown research which confirms it beyond a shadow of a doubt or are is your faith in the mantra, greater than the (lack of) evidence suggests. I think there is a word for this…….sucker ;)
    b) I will have to give you an example to highlight this next point. A meterologist decides to measure the temperature of a small area, a few square kms in size, over a 10 year period. He takes the temp every day. During the first year, he observes a basic thermometer on the wall of his place of work, and makes a note of the temp at several periods of the day and records the high. The second year, he decides to do a similar thing, but thinks he will stick the thermometer outside his premises, incase it affects the reading. He uses the same recording method. The following year, he changes the thermometer to a digital reader, which he must put on the roof of his premises, which electronically records the days high. The year after, he decides to measure the temp at 1000 meters, on top of a local mountain/hill. The year after, he plots several thermometers across the square plot and takes an average. The year after he is provided with a synchronised global thermometer from the UN, which sends the data to a central location. At the end of the 10 year period there shows a distinct upward trend in temperature. ARE HIS RESULTS RELIABLE???
    Now take this and multiply it by 10′s of thousands of interchangeable destinations all over the globe, at different sea levels, with different equipment, taken with different levels of diligence and regularity, and all having different secondary temperature influences potentially at different times, over several hundred years.
    I have to say, I don’t know how anyone could possibly question the accuracy. WE ARE ALL GONNA FRY! ;) 
    You know full too well that the field of Climate study does not allow results questionning the theory to be published in scientific journals. I know a chap who worked for the Dept of Climate Change, Oz who wasn’t allowed by his superiors, to publish results which called in to question AGW? There are others.
    In summary, you can NOT prove that humans are causing Climate Change/Global Warming etc, that paper certainly does not show this, too much use of the word ‘if’ in the conclusion (3 in the first paragraph, I also see a propensity for the words, assume and might. These are not confidence inducing words. Paragraph 42, the final paragraph starts with “In conclusion, if we assume…” Scafetta and West, 2007. I am sold ;) ). I can NOT prove humans are not solely causing it. So all we can do is use supplementary circumstantial evidence to come to a conclusion, and all that evidence is sat in the camp of the skeptic. There are too many questions, no way to control variables in studies to prove that CO2 is the big driver of global warming, or that warming is occuring, or the consequences of such warming. Now, I have no problem with Science asking these questions. Science needs to ask these questions, but, and its a but on a biblical scale. There is no way that unelected powers should be influencing my life on nothing more than a hunch.

    I missed a very important factor about the paper you enclose. You remember the one which stipulates humans CO2 emmissions are driving GLOBAL temperatures. 
    Quote – We compare different preindustrial temperature and solar datareconstruction scenarios since 1610.

    1610? Really? When was the US founded again? Not in 1610 eh? What about Australia? Nope, that wasn’t around either.
    Do Scafetta and West happen to have the temperature readings for China during the 17th and 18th Century, What about Russia? Were Lenin and Stalin using the relative state of hypothermia of dissidents to quantify general temperatures during the early 20th century.
    Africa? Could you please divulge the average winter temperature of the Okavango Delta for the year 1645, no? What about 1698? 1734? 1762? Surely your ilk must have them for 1788?
    Middle East? I presume the Bedouin, were scrutinized to see how many cotton sheets they were using in the winter of 1612 as an indicator of regional climate? I can see the study article now ‘A historical analysis of the sleeping habits of the Bedouin as an indicator for global warming’. Infact keep that under your hat, I might take that to the Climate Change Dept, see if they would fund a trip to Dubai. Happy Days ;)
    So, when we are using temperature data back to 1610 as evidence of increased GLOBAL temps, I wonder, are we really using temperature data from 1610 or are just we p*ssing in the ‘human induced, ever increasing’ wind? It seems to me that it sounds better, more thorough, than saying, well we only have conclusive, global data over the past 30 years. Not quite as effective when we are discussing GLOBAL warming is it?

    i geuss he still don’t get it. they can not predect the weather past ten days with any accuracy let alone 50 years. LOL! i geuss you can’t reason with the left. their is also sun spots and other natural cuases but they still blame us for a small amount. the sun going to get hotter the more gas it burns up. http://www.skepticalscience.com/acrim-pmod-sun-getting-hotter.htm infact it would be getting more hotter the more fusion happens the hotter it gets ontill the sun eats the earth. it also does not help we are in the soalar maximum http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solar_maximum and if sun spot do what science says it does then it is going to get hot. funny thing is this last about 12 years before we reach solar minimum. the solar maximum started around the same time when Al Gore said the world was going to melt  isn’t astronomy fun!

    lucas4england:

    Obviously temperature reconstructions are important for scientists to show the long term changes in climate.  As you seem to agree in principle, it’s better to have data over a longer period of time.

    But you don’t like reconstructions because they are not direct real-time temperature measurements.  And you don’t like real-time temperature measurements because human/experimental error is possible.  You don’t like 4-year old papers even if they haven’t been disproven by a later paper. You have not accepted the challenge to cite a single paper that explains the temperature increase of the last 100 years via any natural cause.  

    In summary, you don’t seem to like science, because in this case it disagrees with your political beliefs (as someone said, “politicized science”).

    AlsoThe explosion of Krakatoa caused a mini ice age during that period “NO” global warming of any sort.

    Actually dimwit,
    Not one piece of scientific evidence has ever been produced to say that the climate is even warming let alone is man caused. A myth is all it is. By the way if these mythical greenhouse gases would stop the heat of the sun from eminating back into the cosmos it would also stop the heat of the sun from ever reaching the earth. I/E the mini Ice age following the eruption of Krakatoa. Go on keep drinking your koolaid and running around yelling the sky is falling!!

    Wrong the average mean global temperature changes daily, yearly, within decaders and centuries. “Oh know the last great Ice Age ended that can’t be because the earths climate and teperature are static.” ( Yes I’m being sarcastic) The climate has and will always be dynamic. “Oh I’m scared a n academic paper claims climate change is real!” The top climatologist ( not academics ) in the world have claimed it as false. “Go ahead keep make believing, maybe Barbi will go for GI joe instead of Ken”

    “The top climatologist (not academics) in the world have claimed it is false.”  Okay, tell us please, who are the top climatologists in the world who refute this?

    You are simply wrong, VonRichtofen.  There is plenty of scientific evidence the climate is warming:

    February 2007 interview with PBS’s Frontline:

        “I think if you have mandatory carbon caps combined with a trading system, much like we did
    with sulfur, and if you have a tax-incentive program for investing in the solutions, that there’s
    a package there that’s very, very good. And frankly, it’s something I would strongly support….
    If [George W. Bush] had instituted a regime that combined three things I just said — mandatory
    caps, a trading system inside the caps, as we have with clean air, and a tax incentive to be able
    to invest in the new technology and to be able to produce the new technology — I think we would
    be much better off than we are in the current situation.” –  Newt Gingrich

    That sounds like Cap and Trade to me; why? well he used the words “cap” and “trade.”

         As the world’s fossil fuel resources are depleted, the cost of energy derived from combustion of fossil fuels will continue to increase. Historically, energy costs have increased about 5% per year doubling every 15 years. Of course, if Cap & Trade legislation is passed, the rate of increase will be much more rapid.
        As renewable energy technologies are improved, the cost of energy derived from renewable sources is decreasing. It can be expected that soon renewable energy will be more economical than energy from fossil fuels.
         Last year, Zenith Solar in Israel introduced a concentrating solar collector that converts 32% of incident solar radiation to electricity and also converts about 40% of the incident solar energy to thermal energy. Please visit Zenith Solar’s website for an excellent description of this technology. Their design is proven.
         I am a Mechanical Engineer and I have designed a solar collector which substantially improves on Zenith Solar’s technology. Patent is pending and I am trying to build a prototype.
         It should be noted that one beautiful aspect of this technology is that it does not have to be tied to the grid ( and controlled by governments ). Energy independence and self-sufficiency is possible.
         The IPCC scientists have taken a very meager set of historical temperature data and after grossly manipulating this insufficient data set tell us that the average temperature of the world has increased by 1/2 of a degree. They present their findings with no margin for error. And people believe them? 
         As the use of renewable energy resources begin to supplant the combustion of fossil fuels, more and more people will become independent of the Grid and begin to achieve a degree of independence that the governments obviously do not want. Hence the false man-made accusation of man-caused global warming. They will not be successful.

    your take on it is like mine,when they take a core sample from trees,they don’t take into acount a lot of the data is’nt there to work with,because it’s not stable,and disapates. All they cac depect is whether the tree ring growthwas rapid,or spaced(warmer or cooler ,for a number of years. Even with the ice core samples,I think basicly it’s the same).

    I would just like to know if it it coincidental that your name is duplicit? Do some real research, try to figure out why these so-called scientists, who are paid to come up with this nonsense are so worried about being caught, hiding their own research, and having to change the name from global warming to climate change if this is indeed “settled science?”.

    first i got the wrong link this is what i was looking for.http://www.sott.net/articles/show/234213-Global-Warming-Caused-by-Cosmic-Rays-and-the-Sun-Not-Humans it is your right. like i pointed out the earth was a lava waste land if you believe scince. even since it has been keeping the same temp more or less.back when the dinos walk the earth their were a few heat spikes like this. astronomers and climatologist have been fighting it out. most astronomers are with then but they also say that things like sun spots and other events from space are haveing an effect. climatologist will not move on it. they still want to blame us. oh how that makes me mad! they are in it for the money and their party this has nothing to do with scince or the earth. that is why the left deffend this it is an easy way to eat away at this country like a cancer. fake scince thats all it is. they are trying to use us with fear. nothing new from the progs i geuss. this is what we need to do think for ourself. the hate Beck some much for opening are minds and hearts. we will win someday i can feel it.

    It won’t let me reply to your last post, so I am doing it here.
    Sorry you aren’t going to wriggle out of this one ;) 
    Quote – Obviously temperature reconstructions are important for scientists to show the long term changes in climate.
    Once again, I have no issue with science using whatever method it wants to evaluate the history of (semi) global temperatures, they could ask Gaia personally, I don’t give a rats ass. What I take issue with, is the fact they then purport their findings to be something they are not, i.e. Global rather than regional and accurate to a 10th of a degree (claims of increases of 1.5-2.5 degrees etc), yet they then scare my kids at school about the impending global fry up and give them guilt trips to make the most stable of humans suicidal. Finally they fleece the content of my bank account all due to results of their pathetic findings. If the older findings were out by just 1 degree, that is 1 degree, then we have a massive issue with modern findings. Now I am sorry, not even modern methods of temperature reading are synchronised to within 1 degree. The weather show is never exact to the temp reading at my work or in my car or with those littered around shops in town etc etc. So there is NO WAY on earth that looking at Ice thickness in one corner of the globe or tree rings in a few places is representative of global temperatures.
    Now lets look at global average temps shall we. We have deduced that there was no such things as global temperature readings in 1610 to compare against, there was possibly, to a certain extent, in Europe and maybe 1 or 2 centres across the world (possibly). These were averaged off to give a best guess scenario. What happens, when you factor in the averages of the US in the 18th and 19th century, same with Australia (its pretty hot down here ;) ). Then the Middle East, Africa, South East Asia, S.America etc etc. The average will automatically rise, because these places are indeed hotter than Europe. “Holy toledo Batman, look at the Avg Global temps, they have increased dramatically since Australia and Africa came on line (now theres a surprise), it must be because of all the sheep that live down there, or the coal they mine, quick tax the f*ck out of them”.
    Money makes the world go round……oh and global temperatures decrease. Amazing.
    You say I don’t like Science. WRONG!!! I don’t like BAD science that changes the political agenda of the earth (really who is involved in politicised science, the skeptics or the warmists? The skeptics want the truth, whilst warmists are happy to propogate sh*t that attempts to justify their embarrassing theory and block attempts to prove otherwise, douche!). I want to know the TRUTH before I start living in my freezer and putting sandbags outside my front door to escape the impending tidal rises.
    Finally,
    Quote -  You have not accepted the challenge to cite a single paper that explains the temperature increase of the last 100 years via any natural cause.  
    You are spectacularly missing the point here. Warmists came up with the theory (eventually) that human produced CO2 output increases global temps, yes? That means the onus is very much on the Warmists to PROVE (beyond reasonable doubt) that the above premise is true. The skeptics DO NOT have to prove that there is another reason that the climate may or may not be changing, nature has done this on its own for millenia. All skeptics have to prove is that the methodology, and the findings of warmists are indeed a crock of……. If warmists were correct, they would be able to be stand up to scrutiny. THEY CAN NOT, thus intimating that currently, at this moment in time, more research needs to be carried out before we brainwash the children of the world.
    You and your ilk, use questionable historical temperature data to bodge a theory which has changed the global political landscape (and skeptics are the politicised ones? Honestly, you couldn’t write this), but when I suggest that the history of natural fluctuations in climate are irrelevant as a reason to justify present climate instability that is not good enough. Why is it because I don’t have a few letters after my name? Well, I do, BSc. Thank you. I have never been paid a penny or a cent by big oil to question the theory of global warming. Yet I know for cert that the climatologists who are pushing this are being paid handsomly in the main from the public purse. If they turn round and say, ‘can you remember when we said humans CO2 output increases glnbal temps, well….. it wasn’t completely accurate’ funding drys up, and they are made to look publically like the liars and mugs they are. now stick that accusation of politicised science up your pipe (It’ll cut greenhouse emissions ;) ). For someone as intelligent as yourself, you really have no understanding of CRITICAL analysis do you?

    Actually, it’s quite the opposite. There’s not a single AGW model that has accurately predicted any changes in weather either past or present. Every one ‘fudges’ the results to match historic fact but when you try to apply the models, fudges and all, to ongoing trends, they all fail.

    Now, these tweaks to models happen all the time (legitimately) but when they ONLY can make good data fit bad models, you see the bad results when you try to use them as a predictive measure. Every single AGW model fails this test and fails it miserably.

    The overwhelming EVIDENCE is that warming temperatures drive CO2 levels, not the other way around. As to what drives the temperatures, that is an open question.

  • Anonymous

    john karakash, you make the very bold claim that *all* the global warming models are fudged and that none of them predict climate change as expected. (you keep saying weather but these are not weather models so I assume you mean climate).So I’ll issue you a challenge:  name a single scientific source showing these models being disproved.  

  • Anonymous

    lucas4england:  Since you obviously disagree with (though apparently misunderstand) the methods to date for measuring and reconstructing global average temperature, it would be interesting to hear if there *is* a method you would approve of.  Is there?  Perhaps you have a better suggestion, or perhaps you think it’s impossible and science shouldn’t try.While it’s true that there’s burden of proof to show that global warming is measurable and human-caused (I believe the existing science has met this burden of proof).  There’s also burden of proof on dissenting scientists to disprove the existing papers.  That’s how science works, Scientist A says, “X is true”, Scientist B follows up in another published paper and says “X if false, Y is actually true, and here’s why.”  What’s remarkable, is that none of confident skeptics here seem able to name Scientist B, and which paper(s) purportedly disprove Scientist A.  And until that happens, we are not having a scientific discussion here, we have having a political one.

    When they talk about the oceans getting warmer, why dont they ever mention the underwater volcanos that are heating up the oceans? There are earthquakes everyday, somewhere, volcanos lately have put more greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, why havent they mentioned them? I think they just want someone to blame instead of looking to God, Who is trying to tell the world that He has just about had enough of mans disbelief and doing things mans own way instead of God’s way!

    Again actions speak louder than words. To consider the health of the planet is not stupid, to consider what other plans exist to help America generate revenue is not stupid. To change your views after learning all the details is brilliant. This is straight from Gingrich, details as to why cap and trade is wrong. I bet you don’t even know the details of what cap and trade is let alone the economics of it. Newt actually took the time to weigh all of the options.  I would have just posted the link but I know you wouldn’t even bother looking at it. ——Newt Gingrich: Cap-and-Trade is another way of saying 2+2=5—–The Obama White House has spent the week furiously working to convince its fellow Democrats in Congress to support the global warming bill that’s before the House today. Former Vice President Al Gore has been working the phones, and there was even a luau at the White House last night. The question that must be asked, however, is why? If the case is closed on man’s role in causing climate change, as the left assure us that it is, then why the need to twist Democratic arms to do something about it? My guess is it has something to do with 2+2=4. This simple arithmetic – 2+2=4 – was a rallying cry during the Polish Solidarity freedom movement in the 1980s. It meant that, even though the government would try to tell the people that 2+2=5, to be free, the people had to tell the truth, that 2+2=4. Because to deny the truth was to deny reality, and to do that was to surrender freedom to the government. Something similar is happening with the global warming bill. The sponsors of the global warming bill, which is known as Waxman-Markey, are telling Americans that not only will the legislation save us from calamitous climate change, it will also produce new jobs and new prosperity by transitioning America to new forms of “green” energy. In other words, under Waxman-Markey, there’s no trade-off necessary to save the planet; no price to be paid. It’s a win-win-win. Right. And 2+2=5. The reality is that the bill before the House today imposes what could be the largest tax increase in history on the American people. And every single one of us who heats a home, drives a car, and manufactures or consumes products made in America will pay the price. Estimates are that the Waxman-Markey bill will raise electricity prices by an astounding 90 percent. It will raise gasoline prices by 74 percent. It will raise the average American family’s energy bill by $1,500 each year. And, far from creating jobs, experts predict that the global warming bill will destroy 1,105,000 jobs on average each year, with peak years seeing unemployment rise by over 2,479,000 jobs. All in all, the bill is expected to reduce our gross domestic production (GDP) by $9.6 trillion. And for what? Even if – if – the legislation works exactly as it is intended (a rare feat in Washington), in about 100 years the Earth’s temperature will be one tenth of one degree Celsius lower than the United Nations predicts it will otherwise be. The largest tax increase in history for a one-tenth of one degree temperature decline? No wonder the Obama Administration is working overtime on Capitol Hill. The bill’s sponsors are also assuring us that if America unilaterally imposes these new energy costs on itself, countries like China and India will be convinced to do the same by the overwhelming power of our example. This is another 2+2=5 message. The American people know that the authoritarians who rule China won’t be shamed into harming their own economy by the United States doing so first. It doesn’t matter how many times Al Gore and Nancy Pelosi repeat it. I’m a conservative who deeply believes we have a moral, economic and patriotic duty to protect our environment. I’ve written a book about green conservatism. I’ve even appeared in a commercial about the environment with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. But I don’t believe we can protect our environment with job-killing higher taxes and growth-stifling government regulation. Innovation and incentives have made America great. They are what will keep us great and protect our environment. But instead of rewarding innovation, this bill punishes Americans into living lives that the government wants them to live. Instead of recognizing that our energy problems are the result of politician who won’t let us develop domestic sources of energy, this bill punishes Americans for the faults of politicians and bureaucrats. Instead of opening up America’s vast resources of oil, natural gas, and coal, this bill guarantees that American will remain reliant on foreign dictators if we want to continue to drive cars, heat our homes and run our appliances.

    Once again, I have to reply to a different message, apologies.
    Quote - it would be interesting to hear if there *is* a method (of measuring temp) you would approve of.  Is there?  
    A methodology which is universal and controlled throughout the period of the research investigation, i.e. not a mismatched joke of combining tree ring counting, ice core analysis, etc etc amongst other VARIED techniques and publishing them as being a) accurate and b) representative over the GLOBE, when, we know full too well that they are only of regional relevance. I imagine that is the minimum any undergraduate student can hope to achieve, to control the variables and the methodology, to produce semi reliable results.
    Unfortunately for you and your cronies, that reduces the timescale of observations to perhaps the last 30 or 40 years, which is just tough luck, but least there is SOME reliability over the results.
    I have to say at this point I am staggered that anyone who considers themselves well versed in Science could deem such methodologies as anything but wrong, unreliable, limited, yet still promote the results with a fervour reserved for religious and/or political fanaticism (maybe it is???).
    Quote -  There’s also burden of proof on dissenting scientists to disprove the existing papers. That’s how science works, Scientist A says, “X is true”, Scientist B follows up in another published paper and says “X if false, Y is actually true, and here’s why.”  
    We have already covered this. Scientist A (Warmists) say 2 things, A) GLOBAL temps are increasing and B) it is caused by co2. Scientist B (Skeptics, of which there are many), which, for the purpose of this discussion, I will represent, have already done this (my suggestions just havn’t been published, but as we have already discussed, skeptics can NOT get their work published in most western, recognised scientific journals, they are prevented from promoting their work by the scientists who are scared to have their sh*t research questioned publically and academically).
    Quote – What’s remarkable, is that none of confident skeptics here seem able to name Scientist B, and which paper(s) purportedly disprove Scientist A.  And until that happens, we are not having a scientific discussion here, we have having a political one.

    No matter the number of gates, we will never find our way out to the light when it comes to this climate mess.  When the country goes broke I suppose this will all run its course, and we will see who was right. If the medicine kills the patient is it still medicine?  Can someone layout a linear timeline in conjunction with accompanying processes of discovery that used the scientific method?  This ball is 4 billion years old, and humans have been here 1 million, and we have recorded weather, of sorts, for 22 thousand in ice cores, and observed for 3 thousand, and modern readings for what? 50, and we get to claim we know what the heck is really going on beyond the four seasons?  hubris, maybe?

    Saying he changed his mind to improve his position is fine; except the number of times you do that is recorded and it is a bad sign for a presidential candidate to do that.  You can’t change your mind so easily after major legislation is enacted or a war is started.  It is not just a talking point, it is a characteristic describing his actual judgment.  As late as 2008, he described his idea to have an individual mandate and subsidized health care insurance for the poor. What he described sound very similar to Obama-care 2009.  I don’t like how drastically and quickly he changes his views and suspect polling has something to do with it.

    Perhaps, but not when you’re talking about “man-made” climate change. Are we so powerful that we can destroy God’s creation? To use Michael Crichton’s words, this is intoxicating vanity. Do we really think we can destroy a planet with our puny little machines? I think not…
    And, yes, we do have plenty of oil, we just need to drill for it here in America. The Earth’s resouces are abundant, as God created it. We will always have these things, i.e. trees, oil, other natural resouces, because God provides. God will always provide.

    Dup,

    I recognize that we have determined that our planet has experienced
    significant warming, above and beyond what we’re experiencing today,
    through ice cores which are on roughly 120,000 year cycles. Further, the claim that CO2 levels are
    greater today than at any time in the past is based on ice core
    evidence.  To my knowledge, the historical CO2 levels, that is estimates
    of CO2 levels from the known past warming periods is based entirely on
    ice core data. Now I ask how that record can be
    complete?  When considering what is happening today with ice melting
    from glaciers, does it not follow that the record from glacial ice is flowing into the oceans?  That being the case, how can we know what
    the maximum temperatures were or what the CO2 levels were during the past warming
    cycles?  Would ice not have melted from glaciers then as well?

    “I have to say at this point I am staggered that anyone who considers themselves well versed in Science could deem such methodologies as anything but wrong”

    Would you consider the National Academy of Science well-versed in Science?  Here is their report to Congress on the temperature reconstructions: http://books.nap.edu/openbook.php?record_id=11676&page=R1

    “skeptics can NOT get their work published in most western, recognised scientific journals,”  The reason for this is that these journals are peer-reviewed for their methodology and need to be credible in order to be published!  You really think that a sound paper debunking global warming couldn’t get published and this is the reason one hasn’t been?  

    I’ll read the papers you sent, but let me point out these are your sources:

    - (most credible): a recent paper from Fang, et al in China (now the largest CO2 emitter), which actually says “Global warming is an objective fact with great uncertainty in the magnitude of the temperature increase”, that it’s caused by both human and natural sources, but that there’s lots of uncertainty in sorting out these effects and short term uncertainties in C02/temperature correlations.  Longer term C02/temperature correlations, Figure 7a. sure seem to support AGW theory.  Their recommendation: eliminate the uncertainties (not consider global warming a scam)

    - papers published by the Heartland Institute, a libertarian think tank (not that there’s anything wrong with having one, it’s just not a scientific organization.  Heartland also used to take money to do work for the tobacco industry)

    - Joanne Nova, an Australian microbiologist who once was paid by Shell Oil

    - Giaever, an 82-year-old Norwegian physicists who thinks Norway can stand to get a good deal warmer, who resigned from a society of Physicists which adopted a statement that anthropogenic global warming is “incontrovertible”.

    This is all you’ve got?

    “Honestly, what Scientific papers do you NEED to read which confirms that historically (pre industrialisation), and naturally, regional temperatures have varied wildly?”

    It’s a *given* that annual and regional temperature data vary widely!  However, the global average temperature *does not*.  In conclusion, here is the graphing of all the temperature reconstructions in the National Academy of Science report to Congress:

    Ah, but the API is an association that represents the business interests of the oil and gas industry.  It is their raison d’etre and everyone knows that.  The problem is that some others involved in the global warming debate aren’t exactly candid in revealing their motivations.  THAT is why the leaked emails are so damning.  And let’s face it, erring on the side of caution is a ridiculous excuse for taking taking draconian measures to remediate an unproven theory.  Our economy is teetering on the brink of REAL disaster and we’re arguing over a pipeline that would provide thousands of jobs and reduce our dependence on middle eastern oil.  Talk about madness.

    …..and so we have come full circle. It is abundantly clear you have not read a single word I have said up to this point, but I will press ahead.
    Your National Academy of Science is using the ‘Hockey Stick’ graph as produced by Mann with much support from Jones to PROVE??? that these methods of measuring accurate temperatures to within a 10th of a degree is good science. Have you ever heard of Climategate or Climategate 2 (I will give you a hint, read the thread title ;) )?
    The first sentence to support your so called guardian of science reliability and accuracy,

    Quote – Because WIDESPREAD, **RELIABLE** instrumental records are available ONLY for the last 150 years or so, scientists **ESTIMATE** climatic conditions in the more distant past by analyzing **PROXY** evidence from sources such as tree rings, corals, ocean and lake sediments, cave deposits, ice cores, boreholes, glaciers, and ***DOCUMENTARY EVIDENCE*** (i.e. PAINTINGS?????).
    I have highlighted some of the more alarming use of the English language, which portrays how accurate some of these methods are.
    Analysing, say dendrochronology as an example. It can suggest, when there were long summers and short summers, when there were groups of such, but it CAN NOT, absolutely NOT, tell you how hot they were, and you can run the data in mm or nanometres through any algorithm you want and it still won’t be accurate to a 10th of a degree. There are too many other variables that affect growth. HEAT (temperature) is not the only factor for growth, CO2 levels, humidity and rainfall, will all contribute. Here is a theory, maybe vegetation has evolved to be more efficient in utilising CO2 for growth, thus more remains in the atmosphere? Its possible??
    By the way, did they use the same tree type as comparisons? How many 500-600 year old trees did they find across the Sahara? Not too many, I imagine.
    Paintings of glaciers are accurate proof of temp, ok, and of course rain/snow fall and relative humidity have nothing to do with increase or decrease of such, Temperature is the only variable that affects those. Gottya!
    Remind me again, how many ice core data samples were taken from the UK, or Spain, Central and N.Africa, the Middle East, S.East Asia, Australia etc? No global relevance to the findings of these then?
    Using these methods as an example of accuracy is akin to using a sundial or egg timer to prove that ancient olympians were slower over a given distance to modern athletes and by how much, down to a 10th of a second. Its lunacy.
    Why is an academy of Science, who knows where present political money is going to in the science arena, going to say ‘ these findings are inaccurate’. No they will talk them up as being the best thing since sliced bread, and it is left to the personal emails of the scientists behind the results to trip themselves up by admitting to fudging their results to fit the ‘hockey stick’ illusion, use questionable science to furnish their results, and admit that climate models DO NOT WORK, hey ho, that doesn’t seem to matter to people like yourself, who are more confident in the findings than the organisations pushing out the propoganda behind it.  

    I will read the rest of the document, because I like to learn what comes out of the horses mouth, it goes to show, they don’t have an effing clue what is going on but pass it off as fact anyway.

    Skeptics CAN NOT get their findings published, as I mentioned previously, I know someone who worked for the Dept of Climate Change in Oz, who was told as much by his superiors. Why? Because it is about politics NOT SCIENCE and finding the truth. I have read many other similar stories from around the world. You are talking bollards if you sincerely believe that these decisions are not anything but political.

    Thankyou for analysing Fang, and regurgitating what I previously said and what is contrary to what you are saying. Read back what I wrote, I said with greater confidence than the IPCC committed to, if you remember, future temperatures WILL increase and will decrease. I said there are natural fluctuations, whilst you have insisted that the present GLOBAL temp gains are solely down to human emmissions. I said, the methodologies to support the hockey stick theory, which underpins your opinion is massively flawed, as it is, and as such it can not be said with accuracy that CO2 emmissions since the industrial revolution are the primary driver or even a contribuory factor of current rises.

    NIPCC, is the polar opposite of the IPCC, and as such their findings are every bit as valid or invalid as the IPCCs. Were you aware that the IPCC is stuffed full of advocates for the WWF and Greenpeace (yeah they’re impartial aren’t they?)

    Jo Nova was paid by Shell? Jones (One of the Hockey Stick guys) his recent funding has come from Shell, Esso, and BP amongst others. Your point is?? I see you didn’t anaylse the criticism of the Hockey Stick theory I included.

    You are criticising the expertise of Giaever? I am obviously dealing with a legend in the field, my most humble apologies for my criticism for your line of expertise, despite the fact you CAN NOT refute any of my criticisms of the inaccuracies of your proxy temperature findings and their methodologies, who do I think I am?
    Listen, the only reason I put anyone down to counter your arguments was because you wouldn’t shut up about having some scientific counter argument, like that is the be-all and end all, no offence but it is pathetic (my scientist is tougher than your scientist….no he isn’t….. he is just significantly better funded and has the political and media propoganda advantage). The reason I never produced these earlier, was because I don’t need to be a scientists puppet boy, I am bright enough to critically analyse the data being produced by the warmists, and thus far, I have had heard no productive counter arguments to my points. I was just proving there is a scientific counter argument and it is out there and every bit as valid or invalid as yours :)

    As I have said previously, when the research methodology is regional, the findings can NOT be applied globally. Even if you tag on several different methodologies from around the world, they are still not representative, because you have to take in to consideration all other weather phenomena besides temperature which affect ice build up and soil temperatures and tree growth etc. and none of them are as accurate as they are portrayed.
    In summary, I have risen to every challenge you have laid down, answered them critically and rationally, but I don’t feel there is too much reciprocation. Returning to several of my previous points which you have conveniently dodged, was my analogy using the meterologist an examplary method of reliable and accurate temperature reading? Would his findings have improved if he had measured the circumference growth of tomatos or the height of sunflowers, annually? and finally, can you say unequivocally that temperature measurement pre 1900 or 1850 if you want to be picky, is accurate to within a 10th of a degree? Can you also tell me why there have been periods of no warming as per Phil Jones (over the last 15 years) yet CO2 levels have continued to rise?

    I have added your link to my faves bar, thanks it makes good reading.
    I imagine you either operate in the climate field or take a keen interest in it, due to your apparent expertise? on the subject. For record, my field of education was medical, so I understand the need for rigorous methodologies in research to produce statistically significant results, and I really have to question the standards that obviously exist in the climate field for such average methodologies to be used as conclusive evidence. So what I thought I would do was give an analogy using a research example from my field of knowledge, shall we say, (certainly not expertise) to show how bad your methodologies are:
    I have developed a vaccine (which is worth trillions) based on a theory  that increased atmospheric CO2 concentrations, increase human beings body temperature by upto 4 degreees (critical) by various methods, not least circulatory effects which increase the likelihood of unnecessary fatalities, a causative factor previously missed by medical researchers. My vaccine will provide resistance to CO2 and thus cut its physiological effects therefore decreasing future fatalities (Increased CO2 = increased global temps by various processes, which causes extreme weather which will kill everyone, see the simialrity so far?). To test this theory, which I deem essential for the preservation of millions of people, I need research to prove my theory quickly, so I do not have time to start a new project and use retrospective study to prove my theory (to prove AGW we use retrospective methodologies).
    So I cobble together research from all over the world which has analysed Heart Attacks studies in Munich, Strokes in New York, Hypertension from London, Hyperthermia in Dubai etc, urban environments where CO2 atmosphere levels are high and I believe will prove my theory (AGWers use tree ring analysis, ice core, bore holes etc etc etc to prove global warming phenomena is occuring).
    Trouble is, these past studies, did not take body temperature readings from the victims, and only include visual characteristics that demonstrate core temp increases in the patients, i.e. Skin Colour, Heart Rate, Blood Prressure, sweating, and urine output (No thermometer growing inside the tree, no digital readout coming out from the soil or the ice cores). For info at this point, I can show through a simple algorithm that changes in the above physiological effects all = increased core body temp.
    On reviewing this research, I can conclusively prove that all fatalaties had increased core temperatures caused by increased CO2 in urban environments which is subsequently leading to unnecessary fatalities by virtue of heart attacks, strokes, hypertension and hyperthermia related conditions (CO2 increases global temps, causing various weather phenomenon which will kill everyone).
    Would my research pass medical scrutiny and dictate academia?
    At this point you are probably saying I am stupid, and I would agree, but I can absolutely assure you, that I can prove each and every stage I have included in my medical research, and it is going to be worth billions of dollars to me, and even if I am not completely right in my theoretical suggestions, the vaccine is still safe and effective regardless.  
    How do I know temp was a key factor? Maybe core temp hadn’t altered by a great deal? It is possible that temps had actually decreased in many of these instances, afterall lower blood flow can actually lead to lower body temperatures in rare circumstances. Maybe CO2, although higher in urban environments was not the cause of the original temperature increases and subsequent physiological responses and consequences, maybe it was infection, or exercise or the environments temperature etc etc etc.
    I do hope this shows how utterly ridiculous the methodologies are to PROVE?? AGW.

    counterintuitive isn’t it?

  • Anonymous

    I apologise for spamming you. 
    Returning to my medical analogy, I can support each stage of my theory with accepted and recorded scientific theory (if you need me to).
    i) (For example) Since the industrial revolution, heart attacks and strokes have increased in incidence, exponentially and are recognised public health risks.
    ii) During the same time period, apparently CO2 atmospheric levels have increased likewise.
    iii) Environmental levels of CO2 are higher in urban areas.
    iv) Deaths from heart attacks and strokes are more prevelant in urban areas.
    v) Increased CO2 intake causes increased physiological responses, such as increased breathing rates, increased heart rate, and increased blood pressure (and by theoretical default) increased body temperature.
    vi) Prolonged incidence of increased heart rate and blood pressure (and by theoretical default) body temperature, predispose to heart attacks and strokes etc.
    vii) Skin colour change, increased sweating, increased heart rate, increased blood pressure and decreased urine output can all be signitures of heightened body temperature.
    viii) MY OWN SPIN ON THE ABOVE, to produce a vaccine that dampens down the bodies natural physiological responses to excessive CO2 stimulation, which will therefore reduce body temperature, and the other potentially harmful physiological characteristics of increased CO2 exposure.

    You see, I also have the scientific evidence to support to my theory ;)
    All I need to do is publish this theory along with the supporting evidence (above) in a medical journal, get it endorsed by several prespective international pharmaceutical firms, pay off a few leading cardiologists, cardiovascular surgeons, neurologists, obtain public funding, as it is a solution to a leading public health problem, get the Greenies and environmentalists on board (**Key for free propoganda**) and we have a model for a brand new succesful line of medicine/industry. We can make it financially self propogating, thanks to a policy to take regular body temperature readings for the urban population, If they are higher than the normal range, we can administer a safe vaccine to reduce the bodies physiological propensity to respond to CO2. This is an annual booster (increased revenues). *Note if the increased temp was caused by any other factor, this booster will not affect that, so it is safe to administer this as a precautionary measure.
    As a second stage business proposal, we can roll this out to non-urban populations as CO2 levels increase there also ;)
    Do you see why your production of scientific papers or scientific organisation acknowledgement, means nothing? Just because it is published does not mean it is either good science or correct information. Just because a counter argument is not published does not mean it is worthless and without merit. Your reliance on science to ‘watch your back’ is rather pathetic, and if I can give you a small piece of advice, you need to analyse each paper on its merits rather than the blind faith you have demonstrated upto this point.
    **For note** we haven’t even gone down the historical, political and beaurocratic nature of this theory yet. Thats a whole other world to explore. Needless to say, when significant individuals in the UN are saying in the late 1960s that they will use pollution to unite mankind, before any research had been carried out into global warming, it seems coincidental that pollution is the method the UN is utilising to carry out its agenda. Politicised Science in a Nutshell. Thankyou and goodnight.

    I will get back to you.  You are throwing back multiple objections about science I didn’t write so I’ll have to read a bit more before replying.  But let me point out that, unlike most of the skeptic papers, the research supporting anthropogenic global warming (AGW) is peer-reviewed.  This means certain things I shouldn’t need to address because they have been by default through publication.  For example, temperatures to a tenth of a degree.  You can’t even publish that in a paper unless your range of uncertainty is small enough based on the data.  This is learned in freshman college science classes and should be a given for research on this level.  So for many of your questions (e.g. tenths of a degree) you should find your answers by reading the research, rather than asking me to read it and tell you why a whole team of scientists allowed it to be published.  And no, I’m not a climate scientist, I’m far from it.  But I have an advantage:  besides some educational background, the actual science is on my side.  That’s not bluster, a review of the actual science will show this to be true.

    I’d like to pose this basic question; which is that same

    global political question of who or what is the cause of global

    warming? Causing climate change? Is it just a natural phenomena

    that occurs throughout the course of time on this

    thousand mile an hour, spinning rock we call earth or is it

    man-made. To Kyoto or not Kyoto, that is the question? Slanderous

    accusations from the global community are given because

    the United States government currently won’t sign the

    Kyoto Treaty.

    Well, I’m telling you here and now, both theories regarding

    those for or against Kyoto are still wrong. The asinine

    way people have pose this question especially prominent

    politicians and the major media mules that carry their message

    is backwards. The wrong way we think and judge this

    matter is the heart of the problem, manifested by our sinful

    human nature. Mankind always seeks to judge and solve

    problems from the outside in instead of the inside out. That

    foolish fallacy trying to correct the wrong by attacking the effect

    instead of the cause is the fundamental common day

    blunder of every man, woman and child born on the earth. If

    Kyoto is ratified today by all nations but the wicked hearts of

    mankind goes unchanged, still, “our Armageddon will be at

    our door” Gen. Douglas Mc Arthur. The landlord will allow

    the face of the earth to be destroyed. Not because of the
    type of cars we drive on it but because of the billions of

    I understand the ice cores are that old.  My question is how does one know that in drilling from the surface to the maximum depth, that one has a continuous climate record preserved in the cores?  How is it that today, surface ice is melting away, presumably taking many hundreds of years of ice record along with it, yet we apparently assume that did not happen in the past?  If you are familiar with geologic terms, how does one know an unconformity does not exist in the ice core record?  And if unconfomities do exist, how can we know with certainty that that the CO2 level has never been higher in the history of the earth than it is today with ice cores as the sole indicator of past CO2 levels?

    “foolish fallacy trying to correct the wrong by attacking the effect instead of the cause”  That’s the rub right there, isn’t it?  If humans are causing global warming (effect), then humans should undo the actions causing the effect.   It’s pretty simple, whether we bring God into it or not.

  • Anonymous

    (replying to your more recent post)  For your questions about the ice cores, if you want to know, read the paper and let us know what you found.  Seriously.  Or you can be like the lawyer who tries to cause doubt rather than seeking actual facts.  A couple of quick points though:  How does one know how old a tree is?  (every year there’s a summer and a winter — a “nonconformity” would be a year without seasons where the earth somehow did not tilt on its axis)   Ice “cores” are by definition not surface ice, so they don’t melt away.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_DMX4NH2Q2C77QASAQCOEYVDYJY Yankster

    You do understand that for ice core data to be used to determine pre-historic CO2 levels that said ice had to be exposed to the atmosphere at some point in the past?  If it were not, it could not be used as a record to determine CO2 levels at all.  Glaciers are formed due to  the
    resultant build up of of snow, compressed yearly by more snow until it becomes ice.  So all ice in a glacier at some point in time was surface ice/snow.  Does it not then follow that during periods
    of increased global temperature that surface snow/ice would
    be exposed to melting?

    I had skim through the paper, but I did not see where it addressed CO2 levels from glacial ice cores.  I entered this thread to discuss CO2 levels as determined from ice cores because I have never seen the issue of ice melt addressed in scientific papers that use ice cores to estimate pre-historic CO2 levels.  The paper you cited primarily deals with temperature changes from 1600 forward.  That is a microcosm of the earths history.  Those postulating that man is causing a runaway global temperature increase rely on data that goes back as far as ice cores for a reason.  They have to acknowledge that temperatures have fluctuated significantly in the past – how else did we come to have the widespread abundance of Carboniferous plant life from which fossil fuels formed?  What was the mechanism that drove pre-historic climate change?  It could be the same mechanism that is driving climate change today.  Except those who want to profit from regulating CO2 emission postulated that CO2 in the atmosphere is driving the current climate change.  That theory is supported entirely by estimating pre-historic CO2 levels based on ice core data.  I am questioning the completeness of that data set.

    I hear you and I do apologise for bombarding you. Thankfully, my comment is much more brief and to the point this time :)

    On Tuesday I spent a few hours reading 180 pages of Climategate e-mails. Now, unless you have read those e-mails, not relied on third party analysis (either for or against, as I had done to a certain extent) then you can NOT start to comprehend the disgraceful science ethics at work by your so called scientists, i.e. Mann, i.e. Jones and many other well known IPCC contributors. If this had occured in medical science, I am pretty sure they would be brought to some form of professional justice for their conduct. Why? because the consequences of bad medical practice is worth lives, whilst bad ethical practice in the climate field WILL NOT, no matter how much you fear monger. In addition you have the political and media propoganda machine crushing counter arguments, whilst jumping on the green bandwagon (You should see what is happening in Australia, and what has happened in the UK over the last 10 years), so your argument about what is and what is not peer reviewed or published is untenable.  
    Are you a mathmatician then? Its just that you have defended the (in)accuracy of proxy temperature reading processes previously, by virtue of the algorithms that they are subjected to. Well, I am sorry, but as I mentioned earlier, any set of numbers can be crunched to give you whatever figures you want, as long as you do it right. I could easily show comparitive figures demonstrating the increase of various medical conditions in relation to atmospheric co2 levels. I could produce a scale for body temperature measurements by virtue of visual observations rather than specific thermometer readings. I could say these are accurate, no sweat, using algorithms, but the absolute truth is that there is significant doubt over my algorithms findings, due to uncontrolled variables, as is the case with their tree ring analysis or their bore hole analysis, or their paintings/diaries and documentation analysis. The link you gave me from the Science Academy acknowledges these (briefly), you have obviously opted to ignore these, whilst I point out the elephant in the room.
    The sole reason that they use this methodology is that they HAVE to, to produce semi useful findings, quickly (they feel they can’t wait 400 years to get 400-500 year accurate temperature readings, though they should for accuracy). So for the greater good of mankind (how noble?) the science field tolerates these proxy findings, and so it takes the child in the crowd to point out that the king is wearing no clothes.
    So feel free to wax lyrical about the science supporting your argument, but when the scientists who are producing the results and the reports are admitting (in private) they have no idea what is going on, or that they fudge data, or that they professionally crush any scientist who disagrees with them, including blocking and interfering with the peer review process you refer, you are inadvertantly supporting the worst science I have ever encountered. What more would we expect from a politicised pseudoscience being pushed by the single biggest unelected beaurocracy over the globe?
    I did end up rattling on afterall, sorry ;)

    Question? With all this scuttlebutt about lowering CO2 emissions did anyone tell Biden, Gore, Obama or any of the rest of the nutjobs the plant life on earth THRIVES on CO2! 
    The higher the CO2 the better the trees, grasses, flowers, veggies, fruits, berries, etc, etc, thrive and the more OXYGEN they make.

    Sorry sir… you demand your opponent prove a negative… instead you must present the model which DOES accurately predict future climate conditions and you can’t do that because it doesn’t exist.

    You present a “theory,” then demand that anyone who disagrees with your premise present an alternate theory, but that’s not what makes good science. Good science need only poke holes in YOUR theory, not come up with an alternate theory. YOUR theory, by the way, now looks like Swiss Cheese.

    Science, by the way, is the “pursuit of knowledge” and not the attainment of information which promotes your point of view. The moment you find yourself “convinced” you have departed the scientific realm and entered the political realm…

    Relativity’s not a bad example, actually.  The theory has broad implications for society, and has had applications for everything from powering your GPS to making nuclear bombs.  Parts of it don’t explain certain actual phenomena, yet at its core it is a true and useful theory.

    GRusling, JohnK made the claim that *every* anthropogenic global warming (AGW) model was fudged, I asked him to show *one* that is fudged, and he has not.  There’s a mountain of scientific studies; he, presumably a non-scientist says they are all fudged, so yes he bears some burden of proof!

    The burden of proof for poking sufficient holes in AGW has not been met in the scientific arena — where AGW theory remains the near-consesnsus view — or in this discussion thread.  Here people have advanced “proofs” ranging from “it’s just a cycle” to “plants love CO2″ to “the-model-can’t-tell-me-accurately-what-the-Thursday-morning-temperature-will-be-in-2063-therefore-its-worthless-even-though-I-might-be-underwater-by-then.”  

    Show me the holes that have been poked.  These are pin-pricks on the skin of an elephant.  

    There’s theory and then there are some (inconvenient) facts.  Observationally, our climate is rapidly changing.  Volcanoes, solar activity etc are all unable to explain it yet the CO2 greenhouse effect is.  There is also burden of proof for AGW skeptics to show an alternative cause for the warming that has already occurred.

    I believe I’ve read every word you’ve said.  Congratulations on being the only person in a 100-post thread here on GBTV willing to discuss any specific scientific studies about Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW).  This tells me you must be at very least a somewhat conscientious person.  I don’t doubt that we could joy a beer and find common ground on many topics, perhaps even this one.  I can’t respond to every question you scatter concerning an entire field of science; I’ll try to respond to some of the more important ones.  

    The hockey stick graph of temperature appears in nearly every credible climate paper, regardless of source.  So even if you had grounds to throw out hockey sticks supported by data from Mann & Jones (I don’t you think you do have grounds), there are still many other hockey sticks corroborating them. 

    Here’s more information on tree ring reconstruction methods:
    http://www.nap.edu/openbook.php?record_id=11676&page=48#p200108c09970048001

    I’m not criticizing Giaever’s credibility as a physicist, the field of science he was successful in, but his rationale and conclusions regarding Climatology, a field of science he did not work in.  

    I’m sorry that I do not recall your meteorologist analogy. 

    “Can you also tell me why there have been periods of no warming (over the last 15 years)”  Yes, it’s a fallacy that the earth has stopped warming.  Here’s a paper from another Jones — David Jones from Australia that should make interesting reading:  http://www.aussmc.org/documents/waiting-for-global-cooling.pdf

    Summary: data variability makes successive record year-over-year temperatures unlikely, even during an ongoing warming trend.  Subsequent to Jones’ paper, I believe that 2010 was the warmest year on record, and here’s what the data curve looks like:
    http://www.skepticalscience.com/2011-Global-Climate-Status_WMO.html

    This data gets cherry-picked by global warming denial-ists to say the planet stopped warming in 1998.  It doesn’t take much education to look at the full data set and see what the trend is.

    “Do you see why your production of scientific papers or scientific organisation acknowledgement, means nothing?”  No I’m sorry, I do not see that at all.  Thanks for trying to assemble a complex analogy, I find it easier to directly discuss the topic of climate change.  

    By the way, are there any other entire fields of science currently held hostage by global political conspiracies right now, or is it just climatology?  And if only climatology, then how convenient it is for you, rhetorically, to not have to address the entire field of science that is pertinent to the topic at hand!

  • Anonymous

    I’ve read Climategate emails and don’t like them — shows too much jockeying among scientists and cynical “politics” among them.  However, I didn’t find any evidence of falsified data, I haven’t seen any evidence that their scientific findings can be thrown out as a result.  And even if their findings were ignored there’s plenty of support from other scientists (I was stunned when I sifted through the alphabetical references in the National Academy of Science report — this work represents a ton of science).  Their emails *still* strike me as more objective about climate change than what I read right here on GBTV, which albeit is just a political website at the end of the day.

    Let me call you on a couple of unfounded statements.  “Any set of numbers can be crunched to give you whatever figures you want, as long as you do it right.”  Sure, you can correlate body temperature to CO2, but since correlation is not causation, you need additional science (like the greenhouse effect) to show cause.  You also state emphatically that regional measurements cannot be compiled to make global conclusions.  I assume you are aware you are overstating the case since there are tons of methodologies (political science, social science, earth science etc.) that use sampling data to make aggregate conclusions.  There is a scientific method to sampling!  So it sounds like you’re attacking the whole idea of sampling when really you’re just saying that the methods in these studies are not rigorous enough — presumably without you having read the studies or examined the actual method.  In short, you disagree with the conclusions.

    If I remember correctly, in my very first post to you, I made mention to the fact that there are too many facets of this topic to argue/discuss, on this forum? I think these words are finding a basis. 
    Initially, please don’t be mistaken by the fact that when I said the earth had had ‘PERIODS of NO WARMING over the last 15 years’, I wasn’t merely regurgitating ‘cherry picked, global warming denial-ists’ data, as you suggest. I was indeed regurgitating opinion as offered by Phil Jones et al. I appreciate the paper you include from Jones (Oz), which at first glance looks pretty kosher, but I am sure I will find fault eventually ;)
    However, I would suggest there is a significant concensus that my assertions maybe correct. Now, I loathe to go down the whole, ‘my scientist is tougher than your scientist’, approach, but there are so many conflicting reports to Oz Jones, from acknowledged Warmists –
    Dr Vicky Pope, Head of Climate Change Advice (2010, in relation to global temperature readings for the past decade) – Said that pollution (Asian aerosols) could be cooling the earth?
    Which begs the question, maybe we should throw more pollution up there to cool the earth back down, but I digress.
    Then we have the published paper by Kaufmann et al (2011) which confirm that global temperatures remained steady between 1998 and 2008, and once again blamed it on Chinese emmisions.
    Mojib Latif (A warmist) claims that the temperature curve has reached a plateau and suggests a couple of decades of cooling.
    Jochem Marotzke is another who is confused by the sudden remission. Finally we have the Hadley Centre for Climate Prediction, who confirm the above between 1999-2008 (and have since been accused by the Russians of tampering with data relating to Russia temperatures since 1900, oh dear).
    Now, I am not hypocritical enough to say, ‘there you go, Oz Jones is wrong’, because what it tells me, more importantly, is 2 things A) that anyone can make any set of data, say whatever it is they want and B) They don’t really have a damn clue as to what is going on, either in the short term (with accurate measuring equipment) or in the long term (with proxy findings). If they can’t agree what has happened over the last 10-15 years, can they really say for sure where we are heading?
    Which brings me nicely, to my second point, that you raise on one of your most recent answers to me about my medical analogy of correlation and your insistance it was not an example of causation (it was, the scientific evidence for the things I wrote exists, i.e. a human inhales increased CO2, they WILL experience physiological changes, including body temp, but that is besides the point right now).
    IF atmospheric CO2 = increased global temperatures, i.e. the cause and effect you allude, but which CAN NOT be proven, strongly believed by some? Yes. Conclusively proven? No. How can we then suggest, when the data doesn’t fit our (sorry your) models predictions, that CO2 increases actually cause lower temperatures, even for a short period of time? Its a simple point, either CO2 increases temperatures or it doesn’t. It can’t be both. Its like saying that adding too much fuel, heat or oxygen, to a fire will eventually cool it down. No it won’t, it’ll exacerbate the situation, afterall that is why we are all being taxed to death to reduce our CO2 output, to slow global warming. It would appear if Pope and Kaufmann are to be believed that we are doing the exact opposite of what we need to. Maybe that is it, maybe they know this and reducing CO2 will actually increase global temps thus proving/supporting their theory, afterall it was Jones who said, he hopes the world heats up just to prove his theory right. How honorable??? (Climategate emails), but you know that don’t you seen as you have read all of the them??? What do you think to Jones fixing Manns nomination for professional recognition? ;)
    If you had, and you had ignored the things they were discussing, then I may as well quit now, because those e-mails discuss in detail about the sham they have made of the peer review process for example that you harp on about, or their professional alienation, victimisation, pressure (or similar words) for editors and journals who dared to run articles disagreeing with the mantra. Amongst other topics.
    Your comments on sampling are confusing. How can ice core sampling from the Arctic, be relevant to temperatures in Equitorial Guinea for example? What about tree growth in Siberia during the 1700s, does that have relevance to Tree Growth in Alice Springs during the same period? Its as I questioned you about the example of the meterologist who used half a dozen different methods to record temperature in a given area, are his findings reliable? Of course they are not. If you have a quantifiable subject like temperature, it really isn’t that hard to plot a methodology that will record such over a given period of time, semi accurately, i.e. you use the same recording apparatus and procedure over the length of the investigation to give you an average (after submitting the data to a simple equation) which is relevant to the situation you have just tested, i.e. indoors, outdoors, at a specific altitude, with specific equipment and methodology etc etc etc. Once you start mixing and matching you lose significance and accuracy to apply findings to a larger area or greater population, BASICS.
    Which brings me on to my final point for now, and to reiterate my main problem to date. If you can not say with certainty what the global temperature was historically, how can you say conclusively it has gone up since? Could I say that my homes internal temp had increased over the past 12 months, if I had only started recording/measuring the temp over the past week, but I used my diary, my memory, how much my plants had grown, how much my electric bills were due to AC usage etc etc etc for dates previous to this? Not with absolute accuracy, I couldn’t, but you’re suggesting I could.
    I could go on and on and on (as you know) I will leave it at that for now. Cheers.

    I believe that you understand my concern.  The paper you’ve referenced is a great piece summarizing the research going on for studying climatic change over the past 2000yrs.  Certainly, we can cross reference many source materials to help fine tune the accuracy of the models these sources are producing. However, I am unaware of any that cover periods of time beyond the most recent 1000s of years.  Ice cores stand as the primary evidence for temperature fluctuation on the 120,000 year cycles.  And the data gathered from the ice cores is reliant upon cross referencing recent ice core data with other “modern” data sources and extrapolating those references into the past.  Aside from the possibility that ice core data has melted in the past warm periods, leaving gaps in the record, this also assumes a steady state environment, which is not necessarily the case.

    I’ve always been aware of climate change. I call it WEATHER. I just look out the window each day so I know how to address the climate change of the day. They keep telling us that the ocean level is rising, and polar bears will fall from the sky, but fail to say that we would all be starving if we slipped back into an ice age. Weather tends to go in cycles, just like fashion trends seem to come around again every 20 years or so. The climate change agenda is another way to tax us, control what we do, and how we live. To sign a treaty entering into a global climate change will rule over our constitution, and give a foreign unelected body the right to govern us. Some in the world have been working for their New World Order, oops, I mean Global Government, for many years. This is a brillant way to achieve it, since water and air transcends every border in the world!

    Is he suppose to site the same science that states we all came from a single cell organism? Wow, that single cell certainly developed a lot of diversity when it decided to crawl up out of the mud and create life. I suppose it was better to go with the single cell that created life instead of ape evolving into man, because the ape stopped developing into man! If the government had their way, they would stop all births from happening because it will affect our weather by the resources they would use. Stop worshipping the creation, and try worshipping the Creator. Nature is not MORE important than humans.

    Trees are mostly cellulose, or (C6H10O5), That’s 5 carbon atoms, 10 hydrogen atoms, and 5 oxygen atoms. Since the hydrogen comes from water, and the oxygen comes from water or air, and the carbon comes from CO2 in the air, in order for a tree to increase mass (grow) it HAS TO take in more carbon than it releases. It has to take in more CO2 than it releases. As for CO2 to oxygen, since the oxygen comes either from water or CO2, the tree will have to release either hydrogen or oxygen. Since the H and O components of cellulose are made from water, and the carbon from CO2, it releases oxygen. To say “[trees] are nearly as likely to give off CO2 than O2,” contradicts the law of the conservation of matter.

    There will always be oil but it gets more costly to extract as it gets harder to extract.  Returns in TX when fields where first tapped there in the 30′ was 100:1.  The dirty bichimen oil in Alberta has a return of 2:1 and is the 2nd fastest rate or deforestation next to the Amazon.  Why are they so desperate  for this dirty, dirty oil?  And the cancer rates never seen before by the local native tribes because of polluted ground water. Basic economics-energy return on energy invested.  Eventually it gets to costly to extract oil and people claim science will solve everything but we are finding that is BS.  Plus many other negative impacts to the environment.

    Oh REALLY….I got news for you skewermark…there is more pollution coming out of the mouths of Gore and Obama and the other climate bubbleheads than oil ever produced. If you believe global warming is man-made I have beach front property, a bridge, and a tower I want to sell you. This is about MONEY…and the way to get more of it by passing Cap and Trade. Better get off the slopes, put your sticks away and study on it.

    GB is a hypocrite for posting a video about a drunk when he has admitted to being in AA.  Amd he wants to divide the country in half with a wall!  But I have actually tried to connect on common ground but people name call and like the division.  I have said from the beginning that this country will fail if we don’t work together and when you boil away all of the BS…most people wan the same thing.  Most people on here make up things and call me names for no reason.  I am not part of OWS but I do support the middle class ( now lower class) who have been robbed from corruption.  The problem is most people fail to see both sides are equally corrupt and only blame Obama and the middle class (OWS) which is wrong.  Yes there are a few bad apples but they would be that way no matter what.  They did not create this problem.  The rich elites ho who want more money and power did and it is both the Right and the Left.  If people fail to recognize this and think that the same corruption on the Right with the next election will change anything is highly mistaken!

    More name calling and making lies from GBTV followers.  I have tried to work with GBTV people but you have no arguments or points to make. YOu are a hater and lie because you can’t prove or disprove anything.  You only come back with hate as counter arguments with no truth.  Go do something meaningful with your life like volunteer for a charity.  I am seriously worried about your health with how much hate and aggression you have.  Find a healthy way to channel it.  Stop trying to divide and ruin this country.

    There will always be oil but it gets more costly to extract as it gets harder to extract.  Returns in TX when fields where first tapped there in the 30′ was 100:1.  The dirty bichimen oil in Alberta has a return of 2:1 and is the 2nd fastest rate or deforestation next to the Amazon.  Why are they so desperate  for this dirty, dirty oil?  And the cancer rates never seen before by the local native tribes because of polluted ground water. Basic economics-energy return on energy invested.  Eventually it gets to costly to extract oil and people claim science will solve everything but we are finding that is BS.  Plus many other negative impacts to the environment.  Not to mention the CO2 output from one of the largest industrial projects ever seen on Earth and the removal of Billions of tons of Earth.Edit

    If you think that the 100 million barrels of oil burned everyday into the atmosphere has no negative impact, suck on an exhaust pipe for a while and tell me what happens.  The problem is unburned hydrocarbons.  Just saying that if you believe that this much oil burned everyday has no negative impact, you must really have the blinders on.

    Again you return to bashing the rich. You do have to have someone to blame for the Nations ills, don’t you?

    Lets talk about those hated rich you keep bringing up, shall we?

    Take a look around you, what do you see? A computer, a TV running in the background, carpets, furniture, windows, clothes, microwave, lighting, a car in the garage, maybe two, streets, fire trucks, heat coming out of the vents, radios, cell phones, ect, ect, all brought to you by someone who had an idea, the drive and the willingness to take a risk. They have made this country the most socially advanced in the world. The rich are the innovator, the risk takers, the people who said to themselves “I can make that better” or “I can solve that problem to make life more comfortable”, you know the makers of stuff that you depend on every day.

    Well what about the Bankers and Wall Street? Lets take on w
    Wall Street first, shall we? The people on Wall street arrange to sell stock (raise money) for up and coming businesses whit an idea. Anyone can buy that stock but there’s no guarantee that the company will be a success. If they make a profit they can expand, if they don’t they go out of business, removing jobs from the economy.

    Under Bush, the percentage increase in after-tax income tilts greatly in favor of those making over $1 million, for one, especially when compared to Americans making between $40,000-$50,000. And at a time when the country is sunk in $14.3 trillion worth of debt, it’s adding vastly to deficit, too. Indeed, the cost of the upper-income tax cuts is roughly equal to the Social Security shortfall in that span.

    Obama, September 08, 2011 Before a Joint Session of Congress: “I am also — I’m also well aware that there are many Republicans who don’t believe we should raise taxes on those who are most fortunate and can best afford it. But here is what every American knows: While most people in this country struggle to make ends meet, a few of the most affluent citizens and most profitable corporations enjoy tax breaks and loopholes that nobody else gets. Right now, Warren Buffett pays a lower tax rate than his secretary — an outrage he has asked us to fix. (Laughter.) We need a tax code where everyone gets a fair shake and where everybody pays their fair share. (Applause.) And by the way, I believe the vast majority of wealthy Americans and CEOs are willing to do just that if it helps the economy grow and gets our fiscal house in order.”- http://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2011/09/08/address-president-joint-session-congress

    Todd, this guy does this conversation steering bit all the time. Once he gets someone engaged, he projects, twists, fabricates and misinterprets what the other person has said, and it gets to the point that he is telling that person what they said – the only thing is what he says the other person said isn’t anything like the original statement in any way, shape or form.

    ST and I have had a run in with him a time or two in the past week or so, and like a true liberal/progressive all he ends up is reciting talking points and assigning blame. Then if you respond he accuses you of hate. It’s MtClayBore all over again.

    AGW scientists oddly all seem to be affiliated with the corrupt IPCC, and the UN. Hmmm. You have not done your homework, the majority of temp change is clearly driven by the sun (wow doesn’t that just make sense), affected by patterns that LexBob talks about. Please research the latest authoritative papers by THE scholar on this whole topic, Professor Richard Lindzen of MIT, who isn’t on the payroll of those with political agendas, and maybe you’ll begin to wake up. He has proven, by meticulous OBSERVATION RATHER THAN BS COMPUTER MODELS, that this whole thing is a stinking pile of …………., that the impact of extra CO2 is only a tiny fraction of computer model guesswork (CO2 being a very weak “greenhouse gas” to begin with). Please consult the commentary of the distinguished Lord Monckton of Britain for why you are so thoroughly being deceived by sources you thought you could trust. And when reviewing your trusted AGW devotees, don’t forget to check out Steve McIntyre, slayer extroidinaire, of the ridiculous, fraudulent “hockey stick” graph that is the centerpiece graph of the IPCC studies as well as Al Whore’s fictional film “An Inconvenient Truth”, a film that had the audacity to suggest, among many other lies, that CO2 drives temperature, when honest science, and irrefutable ice cores have proven that it is the other way around, that in the geologic record, when TEMP increase, THEN!!!! CO2 levels rise, not the other way around (wow, doesn’t that just make sense).

    Corporate profits were higher than ever and the middle class is now poor with hard working people unable to save money.  So giving the rich more money will not create better paying jobs and more jobs. Its common sense, which you have none of.  The rich got richer and the poor got poorer under this brainwashed belief of yours.  

    The depression started in 2008 after 8 years of war where no WMD’s were found and Haliburton profited from the war and 53% of taxpayer money funded this war.  Also, greater tax breaks for the wealthy have eliminated the middle class and you want more of the same.  You are either high, or really brainwashed because nobody is that dumb.

    Ya because most people with money are greedy and need more to keep their expensive lifestyles.  Corporate profits were more than ever because of greater tax breaks for the richest and the middle class has shrunk.  Tax increases also makes the gap between the rich and the poor grow because corporate profits are increasing and real-living wages are less than ever. Either way the rich get richer and the poor get poorer.  Its a lose, lose situation for the now lower class.  

    COMMON SENSE..nobody believes these lies spewed by the wealthiest.  Just get out of your little bubble and talk to the average American who is now poor by American standards. Just ask the average American (not people within your little bubble) if they believe in bigger tax breaks for the rich.  They see that this is a LIE.   But that is okay because we still have it better than the rest of the world.  When it is not okay.  When the average American lives like the Chinese?

    Their is greater interest than WMD’s which were never found in Irag either.  I said they would close the strait were much of the world’s oil passes through and now Iran is threatening to close the strait.  If we attack them they will definitely close the strait.  Either way the cost of oil will sykrocket even more putting an ever bigger stranglehold on the now lower class.  But as long as taxpayer money pay for this war and corporations benefit through the military-industrial complex, who cares.  Not you greedy buttholes.

Iraq also had Scud missiles which by definition are WMD’s. Stay stupid skeirmark, it fits you. A little military experience will teach you more than you want to know about WMD’s.

    Wait, you want to increase taxes on the rich because there is a gap between the rich and the poor right?

    Then explain how you writing this makes sense with that: “Tax increases also makes the gap between the rich and the poor grow because corporate profits are increasing and real-living wages are less than ever.”

    If tax increases increase the gap why do it?

    Are you aware that only two countries have a higher Corporate tax rate than the United States? When was the last time you heard of a company moving jobs to Japan or Germany?

    The Center on Budget and Policy Priorities’ Jared Bernstein notes that “corporate profits as a share of GDP, after tax, were the highest last quarter of any quarter in the history of these data going back to 1947.” Bernstein uses this stat to push back against conservatives who claim that corporate tax breaks will lead to hiring. “Why should we believe that even higher after-tax profits would make a difference?” Bernstein asked. “All these supply-side tax cuts will do is boost their already high bottom lines.” Corporate cash holdings are alreadyup 59 percent since 2008.

    I’m sorry…nearly half of the country is now poor.  Corporate profits are higher than ever, up 59% since 2008 and there are less jobs, so the belief that more money to corporations will add more jobs is insanity-doing the same thing over and over expecting a different result.  I am worried that people aren’t buying it.  Some of the GOP candidates want 0% corporate tax rates and I am afraid that this will lead to an Obama reelection.

    Which GOP candidate proposed 0% Corporate Tax rates?
    Ron Paul: 15%
    Santorum: 0% on Manufacturing only to bring back those jobs.
    Bachmann: Is open to the idea proposed by Sarah Palin, who is not RUNNING.

    Income inequality: “The U.S. has the fourth-highest level of income inequality among 34 developed countries, a new international report finds. A widening wage gap is a big reason, but so is the declining role that income taxes and cash benefits play in redistributing income in the U.S. compared to other OECD countries. One reason inequality isn’t worse, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development report found, is that low-income workers put in 20 percent more hours in 2004 than in 1986″.

    Hey, idiot, LOW-INCOME does not equate too POOR. Being BELOW POVERTY LEVEL MEANS POOR. Since you want to move the goal posts. Only 15.9% are POOR, that is NOT EVEN CLOSE TO A MAJORITY, remember that takes 50%+1?

    From the SBA: “While small and large firms provide roughly equivalent shares of jobs, the major part of job generation and destruction takes place in the small firm sector, and small firms provide the greater share of net new jobs. In some ways this role as a major creator and destroyer of jobs is a result of being the major creator and destroyer of businesses in general. The term for this in small business research circles which was popularized by Joseph Schumpeter (1942) is “creative destruction.”” – archive.sba.gov/advo/research/rs359tot.pdf

    Corporation are keeping money on hand because they cannot get loans from the bailed out banks, that money ends up on the P&L report as a Profit. That also makes the Company more healthy, meaning they hopefully will not be firing people. Economics is not just a one stat proves everything topic, and you cannot even get your facts right.

    “She said she was open to the idea.” That is proposing it how when she was asked about it in an interview?

    Still waiting for you to prove (need something other than you untrustworthy word) that Corporate profits have increased by 59% over the last Four Years.

    Hey Dillweed, according to your OWN SOURCE, only 49.1 MILLION are POOR, that is 15.9%, not eve n close to a MAJORITY, it is actually less than 1/4th. What a freaking moron. LOW-INCOME is not the same as POOR.

    You do realize there is more than one way to reduce unemployment? When people stop looking for a job they are not longer counted as unemployed. The labor force (those looking) was reduced by 315,000 in November, these people just gave up.

    Government employment continued to trend down in November, with a decline in the U.S. Postal
    Service (-5,000). Employment in both state government and local government has been trending down
    since the second half of 2008.” -BLS Dec 2, 2011 http://www.bls.gov/news.release/pdf/empsit.pdf

    Sure looks like the Government did not have a lot to do with the increase.

    The Center on Budget and Policy Priorities’ Jared Bernstein notes that “corporate profits as a share of GDP, after tax, were the highest last quarter of any quarter in the history of these data going back to 1947.” Bernstein uses this stat to push back against conservatives who claim that corporate tax breaks will lead to hiring. “Why should we believe that even higher after-tax profits would make a difference?” Bernstein asked. “All these supply-side tax cuts will do is boost their already high bottom lines.” Corporate cash holdings are alreadyup 59 percent since 2008.

    The gap is 10%+1 not 1% you moron.

    40% ≠ 50%+1 (Remember that is a MAJORITY)

    To break this down for you since you are slow. 40% of the population being in poverty (poor) does not equal 50%+1 of the population. So there is a gap of 10%+1.

    However, lets look at your first source shall we? http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/nationworld/2017018125_lowincome15.html

    49.1 Million live BELOW the poverty threshold. That is 16% after rounding of the Population that are POOR. 97.3 Million live in the LOW INCOME category, that is 31.7% after rounding. NETHER OF THOSE IS A MAJORITY.

    You need to study metrics.

    See how your argument is weak, ndn not mine. Mine are at least based in facts.

    No, it is not. POVERTY is the divider. Those below poverty level are poor, the next level are low income, and so on. The Data used by the Seattle time that you posted was 49.1 Million BELOW POVERTY LEVEL, these people are POOR. 4.91 Million/307 Million= 16% Still with me?
    The next level is LOW INCOME, you might notice that the Settle Times used “Poor or low income” in the article, that had 97.3 Million in it, follow along now, 97.3 Million/307 Million=31.6%

Together with the 49.1 million who fall below the poverty line and are counted as poor, they number 146.4 million, or 48 percent of the U.S. population.

    Income Inequality exist yes. But that is apart of a Capitalist Nation. The problem comes in when there is Economic Injustice, not just inequality. You will always have a CEO that makes 300 times what his secretary makes. But the problem is when CEO’s, Bankers, and Wall Street Execs purchase influence with politicians that favor legislative proposals that increase their bottom line, at the expense of the domestic economy. Examples of this include:

    Bundling Mortgage Derivatives as AAA stocks to get loans off their books, so other people can be hoodwinked into buying them, so they can find out that they are crap and have a massive sell-off of stock, to bankrupt the banks, who then fire their employees, whose CEO’s then beg for a socialist tax agenda (which they purchase) to bail out their mistakes (instead of failing like true capitalist) who take the money and reinvest into Global Initiatives, never rehiring the people they fired which does two things:

    Makes people unemployed through no fault of their own.
    Makes people unable to get a job, even though they are qualified.
    Makes the economy suffer as unemployed people can’t purchase products and services.
    Thus puts us into a recession.
    Thus adds to our deficit with lower GDP
    Thus forces us to cut services and benefits to the unemployed, poor, middleclass, and seniors
    Thus creates (you guessed it)…

    ECONOMIC INJUSTICE

    Which is why we need a President that supports policies that positively and directly affect the poor and middleclass and not the influential Rich and Wealthy.

    You are a pawn for the Rich who are conducting classwarfare, corporatism, crony capitalism, and a tax policy based on socialism.

  • http://www.occupywallst.org (CAR)

    Yes, because the top 1% can collectively purchase billions of dollars of influence, advertising, endless debates that feature one side of an argument, countless lies that are later discovered by Factcheck.com and Politico, yet are still force fed into our media – they will continually vote against their own interest for one reason.

    Americans are spoiled, greedy, lazy, brats who think they are God’s gift to the world. So they hire people who feel the same way.

    Todd Softy is a pawn who works for the rich.

    He can only argue that more tax breaks for the rich is what we need.

  • Anonymous

    I agree but most GOP candidates want greater tax breaks for the wealthiest and it failed under 8 years of Bush.  The recession started in 2008 when Obama started in office.  Bush isn’t to blame for everything but either is Obama.

    I agree that corporate influence in elections should not be allowed.  Money has the greatest influence in elections and nothing gets done in office because they have to return the favors to who got them elected.

    Yes Americans are greedy and spoiled brats.  I for one bust my ass at a dirty job and the pay isn’t that great.

  • Anonymous

    No, because you are mislead by the rich and have the blinders on.

  • Anonymous

    I agree that the problem is injustice and not inequality.  I don’t hate the rich because I know that it leads to innovation and new technology.  But yes, when they get richer at the EXPENSE of the now lower class, which is destroying this country, it makes millions of people upset.  

    Thank you for intelligent posts and not name calling like so many others do with no real arguments.

  • http://www.occupywallst.org (CAR)

    exactly, but what do you think billions of dollars in advertising get you? ToddScheller’s approval.

  • http://www.occupywallst.org (CAR)

    You work at a dirty job with not great pay. What if you had a government that had zero or low federal debt, wasn’t a war mongerer, has a stable and balanced economy and encouraged ample opportunities in education, small business, and ‘as Rick Santorum would say’ and elevator out of poverty into the upper class.

    What would you say if you could have that kind of government?

  • http://www.occupywallst.org (CAR)

    Exactly. Man Todd hates facts!

  • http://www.occupywallst.org (CAR)

    Tax Breaks for the wealthy or the middleclass do one thing: move money from one class to another. In Bush’s case it has helped to concentrate wealth to the top 1%. Obama is trying to rebalance that bad equation.

    The recession started under Bush, which is why he passed Tarp 1. Remember Bush said if we didn’t bail out the banks you wouldn’t get paid on Friday and your ATM wouldn’t work ‘exact words’. Then he covered his tracks as much as possible and it was only later that we found out how bad things really were.

    In comes Obama. Let’s see what he did in office?

    Losing 700,000 jobs a much to now gaining 150,000 jobs a month

    Stock Market droping to historic lows, near 6000, to now stock market rebounded to 12,000 (DOUBLE)

    Millions of Non-stop foreclosures, to refinances, credit unions, homeowner rights, and an end to foreclosures, new home purchasing power aka best time to buy.

    Banks, Insurance Companies and Financial Institutions going bankrupt firing thousands, millions to almost no bankruptcy’s and record business profit, business growth, and over two trillion dollars in wealth that corporations are sitting on.

    How many more examples of then vs now do you need to claim this President has taken the country out of a ditch, put all new tires on the car, pushed us onto the highway, filled up the car with gas and watched us as we take off at 55 mph. The only problem this President has is that the Job Market did not get in the car. It is the only thing lagging in this economy. And it is not his fault. Corporations do not want to hire who they fired because they do not want to invest in the American Worker because they are too expensive.

    Only now they are realizing why they invested in the American workforce to begin with. Becuase it will help the economy when they buy your products and services.

    If you want your company to grow, you have to hire people so they have money to spend buying your or other companies products.

    The Private industry has to stop this vicious cycle and stop sitting on their hands.

    HIRE AMERICANS!!! HIRE AMERICANS!!! HIRE AMERICANS!!! HIRE AMERICANS!!! HIRE AMERICANS!!! HIRE AMERICANS!!! HIRE AMERICANS!!! HIRE AMERICANS!!!

    (skiermark we agree on a lot)

    Over 50% of taxpayer money pays for these fake wars that we can’t afford.  No WMD’s in Iraq and Iran.  Why is there so much concern in the middle east but we have never focused on other regions of the world where there is a bad ruler?  People are so brainwashed into hating the muslim world and yet most of them have never been to a muslim country.  They have way more class and are way more generous than greedy Americans!

    You hit it on the head.  Thank you so much for your  intelligent posts and I will spread the good word to others.  I never realized how bad things were for Obama and how he is actually turning this shit storm into something manageable.  Hope you have a great day CAR.

    I think its a real shame that people can instigate our leaders to go to war (Michelle Bachman, Rick Santorum, Rick Perry, Bill Orielly, Sean Hannity) But if we do go to war – 1, they won’t have to pick up a gun and travel in a humvee being pelted with 100 mm bullets and constantly barraged by IEDs in the middle of the night, and two, they won’t pay for it, the middle class will, and their taxes will be further reduced as the country faces recession.

    If you ain’t apart of our armed forced you have no grounds to intimidate us into war. If you’ve never served and are not now serving you have no place forcing the US to go to war with Iran, Syria, Iraq or Afghanistan.

    Rich people? We love Rich people: Bill Gates, Oprah, The owners of Google, even Chase Bank I dare say. But you dare put the wants of the rich over the needs of the poor? WTF has this country come to?

    To trust $1,000 a year to middle class individual who pays taxes to help improve the economy by spending their own money however they want, and to say we have to give some rich oil tycoon an oil pipeline that he will sell to China?

    Fact:
    In 2009, the US exported 15,985,000 barrels of crude oil. WHY ARE WE EXPORTING OIL TO OTHER FRIGGIN COUNTRIES?????????????????????????????????????????
