Proved: Global warming is bullshit

April 3, 2013
By

The Gaian faithful’s doomsday is nowhere to be seen:

In a lengthy article this week, The Economist magazine said if climate scientists were credit-rating agencies, then climate sensitivity – the way climate reacts to changes in carbon-dioxide levels – would be on negative watch but not yet downgraded.

Another paper published by leading climate scientist James Hansen, the head of NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies, says the lower than expected temperature rise between 2000 and the present could be explained by increased emissions from burning coal.

For Hansen the pause is a fact, but it’s good news that probably won’t last.

International Panel on Climate Change chairman Rajendra Pachauri recently told The Weekend Australian the hiatus would have to last 30 to 40 years “at least” to break the long-term warming trend.

But the fact that global surface temperatures have not followed the expected global warming pattern is now widely accepted.

Research by Ed Hawkins of University of Reading shows surface temperatures since 2005 are already at the low end of the range projections derived from 20 climate models and if they remain flat, they will fall outside the models’ range within a few years.

“The global temperature standstill shows that climate models are diverging from observations,” says David Whitehouse of the Global Warming Policy Foundation.

“If we have not passed it already, we are on the threshold of global observations becoming incompatible with the consensus theory of climate change,” he says.

Pachauri and his ilk are the science-deniers. They simply discard any scientific facts, so that they can cling to their outdated beliefs.

    So far, in my scant 40 years on this earth,
    I have lived through:
    1)A coming Ice Age (I bet this one makes a comeback)
    2)Overpopulation leading to mass starvation
    3)The world running out of fossil fuels- REPEATEDLY (we always seem to be 10-15 years from disaster)
    4)Everyone getting three heads and glowing in the dark due to Nuclear reactors
    5)The end of the Ozone layer, and its resulting calamitous effects on our health and the oh -so – fragile ecosystem
    6)The repeatedly predicted collapse of said same oh- so -fragile ecosystem
    7) everyone suffocating from CO2 poisoning because the rainforests are going to disappear.

    …..and now Global Warming.

      Genetically modified food?
      Microwave and/or cell phone towers causing cancer?

      I’m sure there’s more, anything to make a buck.

        DAMN!!!!!
        How’d I miss those!!!

        Good catch- wife mentioned all kids living within a few hundred yards of power lines will become serial killers, too.

        Sad state of affairs when popular science becomes chicken little…

      a good rule of thumb to decide if something is true is to de-politicize it. in my life this has led to disregard for politics altogether.

      that said, climate change exists. it has always existed. summer highs and lows fluctuate, air composition does too. the dinosaurs apparently breathed air that contained 31% oxygen. ours today is 21%. changes are caused by every process on earth, including human processes. so climate change is real.

      but “man-made climate change leading to impending doom” is bullshit. sure, we cause changes (problems you could say in a small time window of observation) but so does every living thing that exists everywhere. essentially that is the definition of an ecosystem; multiple organisms constantly adapting to the adaptations and processes of each other.

      if you want to look at some things humans are doing, look at 1/3rd firtility rates in humans from 40 years ago and reduced fertility rates in all sexual animals on earth due to estrogen-immitating compounds found in plastics. co2 is small potatoes. that ones pretty bad. but you dont hear it on the news. because it isnt politicized, and it isnt profitable.

      still, its a human process. humans are animals, we have processes that affect our ecosystems where we live, there is an impact followed by a delayed adjustment to new conditions as has always happened. the reason we make a big hoopla about our impacts is because our processes are plain wierd compared to everything else.

      Vaccines causing autism?

      • Maybe not... on May 15, 2013 at 6:24 pm

        But do you have a theory as to what is causing the rapidly increasing autism rates?

        • Bob on May 19, 2013 at 10:08 am

          How about misdiagnoses? I’ve seen kids that are clearly hyperactive (attention deficit disorder) who have been diagnosed as autistic and lack any symptom of autism.

        • Lhogan on May 29, 2013 at 1:26 pm

          Autism diagnosis is an education system enhancement, not a medical diagnosis. More autism diagnosed students, more money for the school.

          • Jack Munro on October 25, 2013 at 2:02 am

            That is just straight out incorrect, Lhogan. Autism is a medical diagnosis, in fact schools cannot access funding for autism without the diagnosing doctor signing off on the paperwork. And I can tell you from experience that the funding provided for an autistic student doesn’t even come close to covering their actual needs.

      Lets us not forget the “end of the world” in 1975/1980 etc every five years predicted by the Jehovahs witmesses. HOWEVER the real things to worry about get talked about by Alex Jones and Jesse Ventura.

      Todays “paranoid nutjobs” are the real seers!

      All the real calamities will be mad made by the US govt.!

      That’s because fools who either know nothing of or reject chaos theory fail to understand the innate insanity of trying to predict outcomes of a dynamical chaos system such as the climate. The fact that these morons attribute every little weather spike to climate change is a hallmark symptom of their special brand of myopic disease that falls breathtakingly short of appreciating the multi-variate nature of modeling climate disaster.

      “Well if we do nothing we risk losing everything”

      Again a failure to understand the nature of a chaotic system. Doing something may very-well be worse than doing nothing.

      And climate models do not forecast disaster, they forecast warming and nothing more. Allegations of climate disaster are purely speculation on par with aliens and UFOs and anal probes.

  2. archtop on April 3, 2013 at 4:42 pm

    The “Global Warming” scare has never been about science but about politics. Just look at the Keystone pipeline project. It could employ thousands of people and help reduce our dependence on foreign oil, but the insane climateers and their Hollywood sycophants have fooled themselves into believing that it will trigger massive hurricanes and floods and cause the global temperature to rise 10 degrees. Boggles the mind, really…

    • dtrumpet on April 4, 2013 at 11:50 am

      It would also have the affect of taking a lot of the money supplied to terrorist organizations out of it and make the MidEast of only passing interest to us.

    Time for him to launch into his Chicken Little hysterics.

      Nice framing of the debate, kenny, nothing better than preemptive character assassination.

      Now go back to sleep, bub.

        Cal:

        “nothing better than preemptive character assassination.”

        I didn’t mean to bruise your delicate sensibilities. You’ve played the fool willingly.

        • Bob on May 19, 2013 at 10:14 am

          Are you guys talking about that scoundrel who’s gotten filthy rich speaking about “global warming” and selling carbon offsets and who recently purchased beach front property that he said would be underwater in a few years?

  4. EMcS on April 4, 2013 at 7:44 am

    Has anyone noticed that the flatline global temps more or less coincided with deployment of satellites and ocean buoys which publish temperature data readily available to all? Since this data is incontrovertible and in the public arena, it allows no chance for “Climatologists” to cherry-pick, hark back to absurd “computer models”, or otherwise cheat, lie, so on… When questioned about their methodology, they can no longer claim that the dog ate their data, or it was accidently misplaced or destroyed. I’m enjoying this…

    Hey Guys,

    It’s a cool paper, but they have a lot of errors on their site, including this one where they identify the ‘Brooklyn Bridge’ as the ‘Manhattan Bridge:”

    http://www.theaustralian.com.au/news/world/gallery-e6frg6so-1226611739756?page=5

    I hope they were more conscientious in their reporting on climate change and got the planets right—and that they’re not actually talking Tatooine.

    Don’t forget … ominous drum roll…ACID RAIN!!! That was the big horror in the 70’s that was caused by Midwestern factories (always caused by business, of course) that was going to destroy every last daffodil in New England.

    • Gerry Owen on April 4, 2013 at 4:21 pm

      ACID RAIN! That was a good one….. Good catch, I’d forgotten about that..

    • Bob on May 19, 2013 at 10:18 am

      All those factories are now closed and replaced by much more poluting ones in China.

  8. Budahmon on April 4, 2013 at 4:23 pm

    You guys forgot “Silent Spring”….

    • Setnaffa on April 4, 2013 at 7:04 pm

      There are millions dead because of Rachel Carlson lies. DDT could have safely killed mosquitoes that spread malaria and other diseases that kill children in Third World countries.

      • Bill O on April 6, 2013 at 5:33 am

        That’s just another conspiracy myth. DDT was never banned for use for mosquito netting. It was banned for use as a pesticide for crops.

        • Scott_K on April 7, 2013 at 11:27 am

          Oh good – then I can buy some DDT for my hammock+netting at an outdoor supply store. Could you list a couple that sell it – I can’t seem to find any.

          • Phineas Gage on April 7, 2013 at 1:37 pm

            It is easy to find a conservative that will distort the DDT story into a propaganda weapon.

            It is impossible to find a conservative willing to budget dollars against malaria.

            That is called hypocrisy.

          • Uranus on April 7, 2013 at 2:34 pm

            Phineas is a jerk as usual. Baseless strawmen, to throw his shit around.
            Baseless, assinine, repulsive and ignorant. That applies to his comment too.

          • Bob on May 19, 2013 at 10:22 am

            It’s much easier to find a conservative willing to give to a charity fighting malaria than it is to find a liberal willing to give to any charity.

            They all believe that taxes should be collected for the government to do that kind of work, then try their darndest to avoid paying those same taxes themselves.

  9. You forgot one on April 4, 2013 at 5:06 pm

    Y2K

    How quickly they’ve forgotten the dreaded “Y2K”.

    • Gerry Owen on April 5, 2013 at 4:44 pm

      Y2K-
      planes falling from the sky, Elevators full of people stuck for days in darkened cities- yeah, I worked in Tech during that period, made a crapload of cash.That was a joke, I tried to tell people that it was waaaay overblown….oh well.

      • Bob on May 19, 2013 at 10:26 am

        Sounds similar to the craploads of cash being wasted on global warming. Even if it’s real, no one wants to believe that it’s natural and has been going on since the last ice age ended. I guess the neanderthals were responsible for that.

  10. Ripley on April 4, 2013 at 11:38 pm

    Ripley is a SELFISH BRAT

    Thanks for the compliment. As Curly would say: “Hey, I resemble that remark!”
    I’m no scientist, but I am grateful that the Arctic is becoming ice free, because I want to get my hands on all the oil that may be up there, so whatever is happening is good news indeed.

    Oh, don’t forget when they made us take the lead out of gasoline and other stuff. What a complete waste of time.

  11. Cal on April 7, 2013 at 3:40 am

    The global warming threads just don’t get the traffic that they used to. There still are the local nutters, jibber jabbering like monkeys in trees, trading their lovingly cared for talking points. Difference is that there are so few nutters now.

    As always, Poli cherry picks. For example, here is the gist of The Economist’s view, from the accompanying editorial:

    “If the world has a bit more breathing space to deal with global warming, that will be good. But breathing space helps only if you actually do something with it.”

    In other words, The Economist has NO DOUBT about the veracity, and seriousness, of global warming. They even use the word “if”, regarding their thesis that the warming might have slowed.

    Cherry pick, indeed.

    • Gerry Owen on April 7, 2013 at 6:47 pm

      Poi takes the factual portion of the article and forms his own opinion. You whine because he doesn’t post the opinion portion (which, BTW, I do not believe the Economist’s opinions are “peer reviewed”).
      You can follow the links to the article, read it yourself.I do.

      It is problematic on a copyright basis to post the whole article. Stop being a whiny turd.

    • ken_phd on April 8, 2013 at 9:34 am

      Cal:

      You are perfectly cast as Don Quixote. Bravo!

    We should listen to the other kids in my class who think we will all die unless we stop turning on the lights and running our cars. They haven’t been brainwashed by their communist teachers and their liberal parents at all. Maybe we need to stop driving to work and start using earth friendly mopeds. Maybe we should stop drinking out of plastic bottles and instead drink from ponds. Let’s not forget that we waste water by washing our hands. And of course, we must ban plastic bags at grocery stores and replace them with reusable mesh bags.
    …their logic hurts my brain. The world’s been ending since the 60’s.

  14. Piotr on September 17, 2013 at 1:12 am

    Yep! Global warming is bullsh*t. But Fukushima radiation can be real and may have the impact on entire planet.

  16. chad on April 27, 2014 at 9:34 pm

    Global warming was ‘invented’ by the UN to tax all of us, to give them more money, also they want countries to sign treaties which would render their constitutions useless. The UN wants to form a one world government to rule the world, and is trying to use global warming as a vehicle to help achieve their evil purpose. The UN/Illuminati was responsible for the JFK murder, most wars, 9/11, boston marathon atrocities and many more disasters in this world. They also use ‘HAARP’ as a weapon against the world. All these leaders should be tried for crimes against humanity.

  17. Jim Boland on May 6, 2014 at 10:51 pm

    Here’s another one – Swine Flu – with people getting hauled off at gunpoint for sneezing on an airplane. That was the closest I ever felt a real risk of total Marshall Law. The government reflex to pwn everyone for the common “safety” was palpable. This strain of flu was less lethal that the regular seasonal flu by a wide margin, but truth was not getting in the way of the machine.
