Freeman Dyson “Crazy to try to reduce CO2 “It’s everything good”

  1. Comments:

    Exchange with Freeman Dyson

    Houston

    Professor Dyson

    Saw your Vancouver Sun interview.

    I agree that CO2 is beneficial. This will be even more so in future because it is more likely than not that the earth has already entered a long term cooling trend following the recent temperature peak in the quasi-millennial solar driven periodicity .

    The climate models on which the entire Catastrophic Global Warming delusion rests are built without regard to the natural 60 and more importantly 1000 year periodicities so obvious in the temperature record. The modelers approach is simply a scientific disaster and lacks even average commonsense .It is exactly like taking the temperature trend from say Feb – July and projecting it ahead linearly for 20 years or so. They back tune their models for less than 100 years when the relevant time scale is millennial. This is scientific malfeasance on a grand scale. The temperature projections of the IPCC – UK Met office models and all the impact studies which derive from them have no solid foundation in empirical science being derived from inherently useless and specifically structurally flawed models. They provide no basis for the discussion of future climate trends and represent an enormous waste of time and money. As a foundation for Governmental climate and energy policy their forecasts are already seen to be grossly in error and are therefore worse than useless. A new forecasting paradigm needs to be adopted. For forecasts of the timing and extent of the coming cooling based on the natural solar activity cycles – most importantly the millennial cycle – and using the neutron count and 10Be record as the most useful proxy for solar activity check my blog-post at http://climatesense-norpag.blogspot.com/2014/07/climate-forecasting-methods-and-cooling.html

    The most important factor in climate forecasting is where earth is in regard to the quasi- millennial natural solar activity cycle which has a period in the 960 – 1020 year range. For evidence of this cycle see Figs 5-9. From Fig 9 it is obvious that the earth is just approaching ,just at or just past a peak in the millennial cycle. I suggest that more likely than not the general trends from 1000- 2000 seen in Fig 9 will likely generally repeat from 2000-3000 with the depths of the next LIA at about 2650. The best proxy for solar activity is the neutron monitor count and 10 Be data. My view ,based on the Oulu neutron count – Fig 14 is that the solar activity millennial maximum peaked in Cycle 22 in about 1991. There is a varying lag between the change in the in solar activity and the change in the different temperature metrics. There is a 12 year delay between the neutron peak and the probable millennial cyclic temperature peak seen in the RSS data in 2003.http://www.woodfortrees.org/plot/rss/from:1980.1/plot/rss/from:1980.1/to:2003.6/trend/plot/rss/from:2003.6/trend

    There has been a cooling temperature trend since then (Usually interpreted as a “pause”) There is likely to be a steepening of the cooling trend in 2017- 2018 corresponding to the very important Ap index break below all recent base values in 2005-6. Fig 13.

    The Polar excursions of the last few winters in North America are harbingers of even more extreme winters to come more frequently in the near future.

    I would be very happy to discuss this with you by E-mail or phone .It is important that you use your position and visibility to influence United States government policy and also change the perceptions of the MSM and U.S public in this matter. If my forecast cooling actually occurs the policy of CO2 emission reduction will add to the increasing stress on global food production caused by a cooling and generally more arid climate.

    Dear Norman Page,

    Thank you for your message and for the blog. That all makes sense.
    I wish I knew how to get important people to listen to you. But there is
    not much that I can do. I have zero credibility as an expert on climate.
    I am just a theoretical physicist, 91 years old and obviously out of touch
    with the real world. I do what I can, writing reviews and giving talks,
    but important people are not listening to me. They will listen when the
    glaciers start growing in Kentucky, but I will not be around then. With
    all good wishes, yours ever, Freeman Dyson.

    Professor Dyson Would you have any objection to my posting our email exchange on my blog?

    Yes, you are welcome to post this exchange any way you like. Thank you
    for asking. Yours, Freeman Dyson.

There Is A Disturbance In The Doomsday #Climate Change Farce

CO2 emissions are UP for the last 18 years 5 months with NO Warming in sight! Yet Climate activist know nothings like the Pope, UN, EPA and President Obama close their minds and say LAH LAH LAH while demonizing anyone who dares to disagree with them http://wp.me/pPrQ9-wSD  


Moreover per top Google Engineers so called Green Energy Renewables “Won’t Work” http://wp.me/p7y4l-v3Q and can’t sustain civilization http://bit.ly/1zxiLOL So without big bucks from government tax payer subsidies there would be no green energy if people had to pay for the real cost of said energy. In other words rich elite greens are getting rich at the expense of poor people whose electric cost “skyrocket” to feather the nest of the green cronies.


The bottom line the doomsday scare mongering climate change movement is nothing more than a money and power grab.


For the real cost of the anti poor Climate change agenda see what is happening in the UK They: 
Can’t Keep Lights On
-ReduceCO2 and 
– The Poor Get Whacked Making Electricity So High Cost Only the Rich Can Afford It http://wp.me/p1R7BZ-3Ot

The @pontifex Top Adviser A “Notorious Anti Semite” Communist Blasts Pope’s #Climate Encyclical Critics

Cardinal Oscar Rodriquez Maradiaga blasts US #climate skeptics http://thehill.com/policy/ener… 

“The ideology surrounding environmental issues is too tied to a capitalism that doesn’t want to stop ruining the environment because they don’t want to give up their profits,” Rodríguez said, according to the Boston Globe’s Crux blog. 


“To put it most simply, Rodriguez Maradiaga is an out and out Jew-hater. He has said that “the Jews” are to blame for the scandal surrounding the sexual misconduct of priests toward young parishioners! The Jews? How did Rodriguez Maradiaga ever come up with this hair-brained idea? Here is his “logic.” He begins by asserting that the Vatican is anti-Israel and pro-Palestinian (as he says it should be). It follows, therefore, that “the Jews” had to get even with the Catholic Church, while at the same time deflecting attention away from Israeli injustices against the Palestinians. The Jews managed to do this by arranging for the media—which he says they control—to give disproportionate attention on the Vatican sex scandal.

Listen to Rodriguez Maradiaga’s own words:


 “It certainly makes me think that in a moment in which all the attention of the mass media was focused on the Middle East, all the many injustices done against the Palestinian people, the print media and the TV in the United States became obsessed with sexual scandals that happened 40 years ago, 30 years ago. Why? I think it’s also for these motives: What is the church that has received Arafat the most times and has most often confirmed the necessity of the creation of a Palestinian state? What is the church that does not accept that Jerusalem should be the indivisible capital of the State of Israel, but that it should be the capital of the three great monotheistic religions?”

You only have to compare Sea Surface Temperatures (SST) from HADSST3 with estimates of Global Mean Surface Temperatures (GMST) from Hadcrut4 and RSS.


This first graph shows how global SST has varied since 1850. There are obvious changepoints where the warming or cooling periods have occurred.

This graph shows in green Hadcrut4 estimates of global surface temperature, including ocean SST, and near surface air temperatures over land. The blue line from RSS tracks lower tropospheric air temperatures measured by satellites, not near the surface but many meters higher. Finally, the red line is again Hadsst3 global SST All lines use 30-month averages to reduce annual noise and display longer term patterns.

Strikingly, SST and GMST are almost synonymous from the beginning until about 1980. Then GMST diverges with more warming than global SST. Satellite TLT shows the same patterns but with less warming…

The Delusional Brain Of Doomsday #Climate Change Believers: Shaft The Poor – Get Rich – Feel Good About It



 1. Reality disagrees with the Doomsday Climate Predictions – There has been no warming for over 18 years and Severe weather was worse in the past when there were no SUVs. 



 2 Carbon aka CO2 is not a pollutant. CO2 makes the earth green and grows crops that feed the poor. 



 3. Pre fossil fuel life was short and brutal and slave labor was the norm. Post Fossil fuel life expectancy soared as did the standard of living of billions of people. Denying the poor of the 3rd world access to cheap and reliable energy from fossil fuel is immoral. 



 4. Renewable Energy is weather dependent thus when no sun or wind it requires a fossil fuel backup to keep people from freezing in dark. In Germany where billions have been spent on wind and solar the import of coal has skyrocketed to keep the lights on. Electric rates have skyrocketed making electricity a good only the rich can afford. 


 5. Even if the Doomsday climate models are correct (and they are not) blowing billions of useless green energy will do nothing to mitigate climate change. Al it will do is line the pockets of the rich crony green capitalists at the expense of poor people.

Ivo Vegter: When environmentalism becomes a crime against humanity

Do #Climate #Divest Environmentalists Want To Commit Genocide? http://wp.me/pPrQ9-wdC

vitamin-aGuest Post from Ivo Vegtor
These are strong words, but they’re no exaggeration. By whipping up groundless fears about genetically engineered foods and misinforming governments in developing countries, Greenpeace and other anti-GMO lobby groups are condemning millions of people to easily preventable malnutrition and death.

Patrick Moore, a co-founder* and former member of Greenpeace, has accused the environmental group of crimes against humanity over its opposition to Golden Rice, a genetically-modified variety that fortifies rice with vitamin A.

“They [Greenpeace] are wealthy Westerners flying in jets around the world telling other people to stop using fossil fuels,” he writes in an email to me. “They are well fed and they would deny a healthy diet to millions of poor children. They are guilty of a crime against humanity as defined by the International Criminal Court as they are ‘knowingly contributing to the suffering and death of civilian populations’.”

The Warming of the Global Oceans – Are Manmade Greenhouse Gases Important or Impotent?

Global sea surface temperatures have warmed over the past 30 years, but there is no evidence the warming was caused by anthropogenic greenhouse gases. No evidence at all.

This post was written for persons who have seen my posts around the blogosphere for the past three and a half years, or have seen other bloggers discussing them, and have wondered what I was yakking on and on about—with the El Niño this and La Niña that. This post is a basic, down-to-Earth discussion of the causes of the warming of global sea surface temperatures over the past 30 years. It’s how data, not models, account for the warming. I’ve tried to make it as non-technical as possible.

Causes and Consequences of the Climate Science Boom

CJ Orach - peopleneedpower:

The forces that drive the Climate Change Movement are a combination of two strong human emotions. Pure greed and the quest for spiritual meaning in life. The irony that the life giving gas CO2 is their number one enemy completely escapes them. So in their quest to “save the earth” from CO2 emissions from fossil fuel they blow billions of tax payer dollars on useless “renewable” energy sources like wind and solar that require the use of fossil fuel from cradle to grave and is toxic to the environment. This wasteful expenditure of money fulfills two goals. It lines the pockets of the greedy green capitalists and fulfills the delusional spiritual needs of the environmentalists to “save the earth” The fact millions of poor people are doomed to death by fuel poverty so greedy people in the West can get rich and the environmentalists can “feel good” about themselves never dawns on them and if it does they sluff it off as everyone has to die some day .

Abstract

Scientific disciplines, like economies, can and do experience booms and busts.  We document a boom in climate science, sustained by massive levels of funding by government entities, whose scientific direction is set by an extra-scientific organization, the IPCC, which has emerged as a “big player” in the scientific arena, championing the hypothesis of anthropogenic global warming.  We note the difficulties in obtaining definitive empirical clarity due to the complex nature of climate, the feedback between the effects of the IPCC’s advocacy and the government’s willingness to fund the science, the ideological and political agendas at play, the dangers to the integrity of scientific procedure in the context of ideological bias, and the…

Is Obama turning America into a Police State?

The prosecution and targeting by the IRS of President Obama’s political opponents are the tactics of an autocrat. So is his Rule by Executive Fiat when Congress won’t pass his agenda as is his witch hunt against ideological opponents like the Climate Skeptics who disagree that the life giving gas CO2 is destroying the earth http://www.climatedepot.com/2015/03/06/watch-mits-dr-richard-lindzen-on-fox-news-we-are-demonizing-a-chemical-a-molecule-essential-to-life-co2/ 

But what is Obama’s end game? Is his aim not to build but to destroy the U.S.? In the preface to Dreams From My Father Obama makes clear he views “Western imperialism, racism, colonialism” as the “Core” Reason for Radical Islamic Violence and most of the ills of the world.  http://shar.es/1W8oJi Is this why he is willing to negotiate with Iran and provide them with the capability and materials to develop Nuclear Weapons?


Is Obama’s utopian vision to reconstruct the the United States along the concepts of Social Justice; Equality; and The Elimination of the Profit Motive via the use of government force? In other words transform America from a Capitalistic Nation into a  Socialistic/Communistic Nation? If this is his aim why is his Administration infested with filthy rich crony greens like Tom Steyer? Elitist rich who profit from the redistribution of private wealth by government fiat that line their pockets and impoverish the poor. The poor who end up being biggest victims of this utopian vision of “social justice”  that in main is driven by the quest for power and money.
