Climate “Science” on Trial; The Smoking Gun Files

just-the-facts

The Evidence:

Smoking Gun #1: Al Gore’s Ice Core CO2 Temperature Chart
Smoking Gun #2: 600 Million Year Geologic Record                    
Smoking Gun #3: The IPCC Climate Models Fail…Miserably           
Smoking Gun #4: There simply isn’t enough Anthropocentric CO2 to make a difference
Smoking Gun #5: Water Vapor is by far the most significant Green House Gas (GHG)
Smoking Gun #6: Antarctica isn’t warming
Smoking Gun #7: Antarctica isn’t warming, but the Oceans are
Smoking Gun #8: Atmospheric Temperatures follow ocean temperatures, not atmospheric CO2.
Smoking Gun #9: Atmospheric CO2 follows ocean temperatures, not man’s combustion.                                                                      
Smoking Gun #10: Record High Day Time Temperatures is NOT evidence of AGW
Smoking Gun #11: The Scientific Method is Ignored, The Null is not Rejected
Smoking Gun #12: Doubling CO2 has NO MEASURABLE IMPACT on the lower atmosphere temperature, none
Smoking Gun #13: The ground measurement data supporting the AGW Theory is very suspect
Smoking Gun #14: The relationship between CO2 and Temperature simply isn’t linear
Smoking Gun #15: Climate “Science” Temperature Reconstructions are not reproducible outside the “Peer Review” community
Smoking Gun #16: The rate of change in the Sea level is not increasing (2nd derivative)
Smoking Gun #17: The rate of change in Temperature is unaffected by Anthropogenic CO2.
Smoking Gun #18: The rate of change in atmospheric CO2 isn’t related to Anthropogenic CO2 production.
Smoking Gun #19: The  Equatorial Upper Tropospheric “Hot Spot” simply doesn’t exist.
Smoking Gun #20: 35 Years Ago We Had A Coming Ice Age and a 10 Year Supply of Oil
Smoking Gun #21: The Climategate Emails expose scientific collusion, malpractice and highly unethical, deceitful, deceptive and unscientific practices.
Smoking Gun #22: Climate “Science” isn’t science at all. Some described it as “Politicized” science, but in reality, it is just cleverly disguised politics.
Smoking Gun #23: The costs of fighting climate change are astronomical, and the benefits are basically immeasurable.
Smoking Gun #24: What Einstein concluded Global Warming and more CO2 are bad anyway?
Smoking Gun #25: Atmospheric temperature follows atmospheric H2O, not CO2?
Smoking Gun #26: PDO/ADO and other Natural Cycles You’ve Never Heard of…and for good reason.
Smoking Gun #27: The Climate Slush Fund; wasting other people’s money, tracking where it goes, and finding better uses for it
Smoking Gun #28: The Global Warming Inquisition; documenting the Climate Bullies and their unhindered workplace harassment
Smoking Gun #29: Global Sea Ice Sophistry
Smoking Gun #30: The Consensus is more Con and NonSense than Science
Smoking Gun #31: CO2 Cools the Atmosphere
Smoking Gun #32: Data Chiropractors “Adjust” Data
Smoking Gun #33: CO2 is a weak GHG, it has no Dipole
Smoking Gun #34: Confirmed Mythbusters Busted Practicing Science Sophistry
Smoking Gun #35: All Science is Numbers, if you understand something, prove it with a valid model
Smoking Gun #36: Dr. Judith Curry has a list of her own Smoking Guns
Smoking Gun #37: The corruption of government funded research was outlined in the 1960s

The bottom line is this “science” would “not stand up in court.” The global warming movement isn’t about science, it is about persuading public opinion. Once this “science” does get dragged into court, the Climate Alarmists get convicted for sophistry. Focus on the real science, and the Climate Alarmists will lose every argument. If the Climate Alarmists do win, it will cost society an absolute fortune, and the benefits will be immeasurably minuscule.stupid-people-quotes

What Can You Do?

  1. Balance must be restored to our Research Universities. Current staffing statistics demonstrates an extremely concerning systematic discrimination against conservatives. Both sides of the story must be known to reach the truth.
  2. An open source approach must be taken towards the global temperature reconstructions and climate models. Way too much power is entrusted into the hands of a very few, highly biased and unethical activists masquerading as “experts” and “scientists.” Transparency is needed to ensure accuracy and appropriateness of the temperature “adjustments” and factors and data used in the models. No open source temperature reconstruction would accept “Mike’s Nature Trick…to Hide the Decline,” and no open source model would put so much weighting on CO2, or accept the highly inaccurate and biased results of the current models.
  3.  Research grants can no longer be given intending to produce a given result. Public policy should be based upon the science, the science should not be based upon the public policy.
  4. Any research used to support a public policy that will result in spending taxpayer dollars must be independently verified using statistical methods like double-blind testing. The data and research conclusions reached in the field of climate “science” would never pass the rigors required by the FDA for drug approval. If Wall Street brokerages used the statistical methods and “adjustments” similar to the climate scientists the SEC would have them all behind bars. Bottom line, we need a watchdog to ensure the accuracy, validity, reproducibility, efficacy and that the benefits outweigh the cost to society.
  5. Federal grants should be limited to Universities that demonstrate a staff inclusive of conservatives, and the research projects should be broken apart similar to building a new weapon system where no one researcher knows the big picture. The key is, the desired result can not be known to the researcher in order to ensure an objective conclusion. Financial conflict of interests must also be removed.
  6. Fight back against the left-wing climate bullies, don’t support their causes or unAmerican boycotts, blacklisting and/or censorship efforts.
  7. Demand Environmental NGOs start delivering products to the market. If a commercially viable solutions exist, produce it, and stop encouraging the spending of taxpayer dollars on unproven concepts. Left-wing groups use the US Treasury like it’s their piggy-bank and treat agencies such as the EPA like they are a venture capital firm.
  8. The opposition/climate alarmism is extremely well funded, and for good reason, fortunes are being made through government spending on the “green economy.”. The only way the truth can win is through solid arguments and evidence. Fortunately, even with the fortunes being spend on spreading this nonsense, the message just isn’t resonating with the American people.algoresoros

The Climate Files: The Prosecution’s Case

The Prosecution: Talking Points to Win the Case

maxresdefault

Prosecution Talking Points:

  1. Evidence of Global Warming is not evidence man or CO2 is causing the warming.
  2. Climate change is the norm. No one doubts that the climate is changing or that temperatures have increased since the end of the last ice age.
  3. CO2 has been as high as 7,000 ppm and never caused catastrophic warming.
  4. Always tie the observation back the CO2’s mechanism to affect climate change. CO2’s only mechanism is through absorbing long wave IR (LWIR) between 13 and 18 microns. Yes, the oceans are warming BUT how does CO2 cause it? LWIR between 13 and 18 microns won’t warm water.
  5. The Climate Alarmist will almost certainly point to disappearing ARCTIC Ice, which has been declining, but global sea ice has not. How can CO2 cause more ice in the South and less ice in the North? Artic ice floats on water and is influenced by the ocean temperatures. Ocean temperatures aren’t impacted by CO2.
  6. Ice ages begin when CO2 is peaking, and end when CO2 is hitting a minimum. There is no mechanism by which CO2 could either end or start an ice age. Clearly, other major forces control the climate.
  7. CO2 and temperatures simply aren’t highly correlated, and what correlation does exist shows CO2 lagging temperature.
  8. There is nothing abnormal about the temperature variation over the past 50 and 150 years when compared to the entire Holocene.
  9. The Minoan, Roman and Medieval warming periods all had temperature peaks above today’s level and lower CO2.
  10. The Mt Kilimanjaro Glacier is not melting, it is at 19,340 ft and temperatures never get above freezing. Ask the Climate Alarmist how a glacier “melts” is sub-zero temperatures.
  11. No IPCC climate model accurately models global temperatures, and all overestimated the current temperature change. Climate “Scientists” have a “consensus” on a theory that their models disprove.
  12.  Meteorologists can’t predict the weather 5 days out, Wall Street Investment houses can’t predict the S&P 500  5 days out, Climate “Scientists” can’t predict the infinitely more complex global climate 100 years out.
  13. The costs of fighting the war on climate change far outweigh the benefits. The fortunes being spent would be far better spent on solving real problems.
  14. The same people that told you we had a coming ice age, a 10 year supply of oil, that you can keep your doctor, that Obamacare would lower health care costs, that raising the minimum wage will create jobs, that a baby is a choice not a life, that ISIS/ISIL was the JR team, that giving Iran nuclear material will make us safer, that competition is bad for the public schools, that tough gun control laws lowers crimes, that “safe spaces” are appropriate for our Universities, painting cops as pigs is “art,” and that Trump had no chance of getting elected are the same people telling your that the coming ice age, global warming, climate change has a “consensus” and is “settled” science.
  15. Record high daytime temperatures are evidence of global warming, BUT NOT AGW, they are evidence that more incoming energy is reaching the earth. The GHG effect only traps OUTGOING LWIR, and has little or nothing to do with daytime temperatures.
  16. There are no trends of worsening droughts, tornados, hurricanes, floods, extreme weather, accelerating temperatures or accelerating sea level increases. None.
  17. Global warming is more religion and superstition than science.
  18. Coral reefs and sea life developed during periods of much higher CO2 levels. Coral is made out of calcium carbonate, and like plants needs CO2 to survive.
  19. When the answer to “are we warming” is best answered with “it depends on what data set or time period is chosen,” you know there are real problems.
  20. The temperature reconstructions like the “Hockey-Stick” are not independently reproducible. No independent unbiased researchers would accept statistical methods like “Mike’s Nature Trick…to Hide the Decline,” or start with an objective of “getting rid of the Medieval Warming Period.

Climate “Science” on Trial; The Forensic Files: Exhibit Y

Exhibit Y: Atmospheric temperature follows atmospheric H2O, not CO2?

h2o-and-temperature-cross

Talking Points:

  1. The above graphic about says it all. Where there is H2O in the atmosphere, there is warmth. Atmospheric temperature does not follow CO2 which is an even 400 ppm all the way up to 80 km.co2-h2o-atmospheric-concentration
  2. Water vapor by far is the most significant green house gas.absorption
  3. Atmospheric temperatures follow H2O, not CO2. This graph alone should pretty much end all conversation about CO2 being the major GHG.h2o-and-temperature-cross
  4. Doubling CO2 does absolutely nothing to the energy balance in the lowest 1 km of atmosphere WHERE ALL GROUND MEASUREMENTS ARE TAKEN.
    400800
  5. Areas of the globe that are natural controls for CO2, which have no atmospheric H2O show no warming at all over the past 50 years, regardless of CO2 level.antarctica1captureamundsen
  6. Even areas that are humid haven’t shown much warming over the past 300 years+.central-england

Climate “Science” on Trial; The Forensic Files: Exhibit X

Exhibit X: What Einstein concluded Global Warming and more CO2 are bad anyway?

global_warming

Talking Points:

  1. Civilizations and nature thrive during warming periods, they die during Ice Ages.
  2. Crop yields increase with higher CO2, reducing starvation, improving the standard of living and lowering the cost of food.
  3. CO2 has lead to a “Greening of the Earth.clip_image095_thumb
  4. One of the easiest ways to greatly improve the lives of people is to get them an inexpensive energy source, and the cheapest energy sources are carbon based.
  5. The Little Ice Age was defined by starvation, plaque, hardship, social unrest, and violent revolution. People tend to move out of cold regions and into warm regions.74809051
  6. While catastrophic global warming is 100% pure speculation and something that has never occurred during the past 600 million years, even when CO2 was as high as 7,000 ppm. The likelihood of an Ice Age is almost a 100% certainty. Wind and solar power won’t work when covered in a mile of ice. Preparing for global warming leaves society completely unprepared for the far more likely and catastrophic event of an ice age.geological
  7. This graphic says it all, we simply get far more food out of far less land with higher CO2. I would think that would he every environmentalist’s dream come true considering we are cutting down the rain forest to grow food/fuel crops.
  8. The push for biofuels has resulted in the destruction of the rain-forest and other sensitive ecological areas. Oil and fracking are infinitely more environmentally friendly requiring an extremely small foot-print to deliver vast amounts of energy, whereas biofuels require plowing, planting, fertilizing, herbiciding, pesticiding million and millions of acres of land that could be used for far better uses. BTW, you have to burn huge amounts of petroleum-based diesel to run the tractors, trucks and production facilities required to produce the extremely inefficient biofuels like ethanol.
  9. The green solution to the energy problem is to burn food while people are starving. By some metrics, ethanol’s production consumes more energy than its combustion produces. In other words, ethanol is a net negative energy source.

Climate “Science” on Trial; The Forensic Files: Exhibit W

Exhibit W: The costs of fighting climate change are astronomical, and the benefits are basically immeasurable.

ab91d8b7c91b300c59e28e96388036b3

The costs of waging a war on climate change are astronomical and measured in percentages of GDP. The benefits are basically immeasurable. For the following talking points, I’ll use the lower estimate of $42 billion per year.

Talking Points:

  1. At $50,000/yr, $42 billion could pay 840,000 teachers/year.
  2. At $2,000,000 each, $42 billion could build 21,000 bridges/year.
  3. At $4,000,000 each, $42 billion could build 10,500 schools/year.
  4. At $1,000,000,000 each, $42 billion could develop 42 new drugs/year.
  5. With a population of 320 million, $42 billion could give every American $131/yr.
  6. At $500,000/mile, $42 billion could paive 82,000 miles of road/year.
  7. The same argument can be applied to buying up and preserving the rainforest, building endangered species breeding farms, hospitals, water and sewage treatment facilities and/or any number of projects that will make a real impact on humans and the environment. The current spending simply produces a marginal amount of extremely expensive and unreliable energy sources.percentage-of-electricity-produced-with-renewable-resources-in-g20-countries-combined
  8. Even the smartest, most arrogant, idealistic and naive kids in the room, the know-it-alls at Google failed miserably at developing an alternative energy solution. All that time, effort and money could have been spent or solving real problems and making a real difference. Silicon Valley just seems to think that solving the energy problem is as easy as writing code and that everyone else should pay for their naivety/ignorance/ideas/failures.cartoon-gw-dollars

Climate “Science” on Trial; The Forensic Files: Exhibit V

Exhibit V: Climate “Science” isn’t science at all. Some described it as “Politicized” science, but in reality, it is just cleverly disguised politics.

af550529de28bac667cee145727ace0a

Whether it is a coming ice age or global warming, the “solution” is always the same; less freedom, greater government control over our lives, fewer choices, higher costs and a lower standard of living.

Talking Points:

  1. The documentary “The Great Global Warming Swindle” highlighted the political foundation of Global Warming movement early in its development.
  2. Another documentary “Iron Mountain; Blue Print to Tyranny” was another documentary, but made before the Global Warming movement. It highlights the MO used by left-wing politicians to gain control and power.
  3. Unlike the Free Market, socialism isn’t self-sustainable. Socialism is dependent upon funding from taxes generated from the free market system. If a capitalist wants more money, they produce a good or service for the market. If a socialist wants more money, they have to motivate the public to want to pay higher taxes. Preventing global warming, saving the earth, fear mongering and other tactics are all commonly used by the left-wing. The key point, however, is that the truth isn’t important, the ability to raise money is what is important.cartoon-gw-dollars
  4. Anti-capitalism and anti-human politics dominate the environomental movement.
  5. Bigger government, less freedom more interference in our lives.ab91d8b7c91b300c59e28e96388036b3
  6. In any real sciences, results like this would result in a rejection of the hypothesis. In the field of climate “science” it results in greater confidence.b40bb-haroldhaydenipcc
  7. No real science would ignore evidence like H2O, ocean temperatures and the sun contribution to the warming, and instead, reduce the infinitely complex climate down to a single variable CO2.h2o-and-temperature-crossmilankovitch_cyclessolartemperature-co2
  8. Climategate emails expose the “cause” converting science into political activism.
  9. Even the IPCC admits that very little is known about some of the most important factors impacting climate. How can one “settle” a real science and reach a “consensus” without largely understanding the major significant factors?ipcc-forcings
  10. The arguments presented against the “skeptics/deniers/flat-earthers,” are largely strawman arguments.  Everyone agrees the climate is changing, changing climate is the norm. Everyone agrees it has been warming, it has been warming since the end of the Little Ice Age. Everyone agrees CO2 is a greenhouse gas, and that the greenhouse gas effect traps outgoing radiation resulting in an atmosphere warmer than it would be without the greenhouse gas. Everyone agrees man can and does impact the climate through the urban-heat-island, agricultural production, building roads and producing greenhouse gasses. Those are all points of agreement, not disagreement. The point of disagreement is about how much of an impact man-made CO2 has on the climate, not whether or not there is an impact. urban_heat_island_celsius
