Oops! One wrong equation caused the #climate scare!

When Reality Disagrees With Climate Change Theory Reality Is Not Whats False: Reality: No Warming For 18+Years; #Climate Alarmists Predictions Are B.S.; Green Energy Is Unreliable, High Cost, Whacks the Poor and Destroys Natural Habitats and Wildlife pic.twitter.com/8T1sjJDmJN

Reposted from the Climate Sceptic Party. H/T the Hockey Schtick

How did many usually sensible experts get “GLOBAL WARMING” so very wrong?

VERY SIMPLE…..

Oops! One wrong equation caused the climate scare!

feedback-equation

RED FACES all around among the profiteers of doom. A wrong equation that falsely triples the tiny direct warming caused by doubling CO2 concentration has been discovered and exposed in a major peer-reviewed paper just published in the Science Bulletin of the Chinese Academy of Sciences  (LINK – pdf), one of the world’s top peer review science journals.

No rogue equation means no climate crisis.

Important New North American East Coast Proxy Data

New Ocean Sediment Data Shows Past Holocene Era Warmer Than Present by 4 to 8 Degrees C. “Remarkable Holocene Warmth: 4 to 8 Degrees Warmer Than The Present”.

Climate Audit

One of my long-standing interests is the location of ocean sediment series that enable apples-to-apples comparison of the 20th century to the mid-Holocene.   These are not nearly as common as one would think.   Ocean sediment series covering the Holocene typically stop prior to the 20th century due to core recovery problems and, on the other hand, high-resolution series (especially from box cores) that provide detailed 20th century information are not necessarily accompanied by corresponding Holocene information (even on “intermediate” resolution.)

Last week, Sicre and coauthors archived two very high resolution alkenone series from Placentia Bay and Bonavista Bay, offshore Newfoundland (5 and 9 years respectively), covering the last two millennium, with their most recent portion dated through the 20th century.   While the proximity is not ideal, the cores do appear to be close enough to three Holocene alkenone SST series from Sachs et al 2007 to compare…

Temperature Adjustments Around The World

Can’t See Any #Climate Change? No Problem Just Adjust World Temperatures & Abracadabra Now You See It

NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT

By Paul Homewood

Green False Prophets Of Doom Pitching Quack Cures To “Save The Earth”

Nothing Green’s are pitching to “Save the Earth” is based on reality. None of their prophecies of doom have been borne out by reality. CO2 has gone up but there has been no global warming for 18 plus years now.

All of their Doomsday Predictions have been proven FALSE by reality!!!
Their cures to “Save The Earth” from Catastrophic Climate Change like Green Energy don’t work. For example it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that when there is no sun at night or on a cloudy day Solar Panels produce ZERO power. Ditto Wind Turbines. When there is no wind there is NO power. Thus some source of conventional power like fossil fuel or batteries are required to back wind and solar up which is counter to the Greens goal of a no carbon energy source.
Moreover Wind and Solar require the use of non-renewable toxic rare earth elements for their manufacture; are high cost which hurts the poor the most; and are destructive to wild life and natural habitats. So calling wind and solar “Renewable” or “Clean” or better for the environment than fossil fuel is another BIG LIE of Green Catastrophic Climate Change Believers. After all is said in done this means solar and winds Energy Return On Investment (EROI) is
so low they cannot sustain modern civilization.
So who in their right mind would invest in Green Energy that doesn’t work most of the time; generates as much if not more CO2 as fossil fuel during their life cycle (from manufacture to disposal); is non renewable and toxic to the environment? Only the so called geniuses who know best in government would that’s who.
Other bat shit crazy ideas of Greens include Al Gore’s call for government enacting a law banning cars from all major cities and Academy of Science Call for Zero Carbon Emissions recommendation which equates to ZERO life
as there would be no life on planet earth without CO2.
So instead of facing reality and admitting they have been wrong about Catastrophic Climate Change they resort to Exploding Kid Movies; Behead The Disbelievers; Holocaust Denier Hate Speech; Blatant Lies & Fraud http://wp.me/pPrQ9-vDz

The Great Blizzard Of 2015 Climate Policy Lessons: When Bad Predictions Equals Bad Policy The People Pay The Price

Climate Change aka Carbon dioxide mitigation to “Save The Earth” craze has attracted a hodgepodge of greedy for power and money opportunists like a magnet: 
  • Leviathan government bureaucrats and politicians who hunger for more power;
  • Green crony capitalists sucking on the tit of tax payer subsidies;
  •  Communists; 
  • Anti Nuclear Power Activists;
  • Carbon Traders; 
  • Neo-Malthusian over-population and resource-reduction Activists; 
  • Academia who prosper by linking Catastrophic Climate Change Predictions with Government Funding; 
  • Anti industrial/fossil fuel green activists like Friends of the Earth and their ilk who want to go back to an agrarian civilization or even further back to a hunter gatherer era when life was short and brutal
  • Foreign powers like the Saudis and Russians-who profit by quelling Western Fossil Fuel development  
All of the above power hungry and greedy Climate opportunists use speculative catastrophic climate predictions that are based on reality-free Climate Models as a justification for their bad and destructive to society Climate Policies: 


The Climate Change “Sky is Falling” Craze can best be described as way of providing income and purpose in life for people who would otherwise be unemployable and aimless. As a result billions of people suffer, their lives are disrupted, more poverty is created and billions of dollars are blown on useless green energy.
 
Judith Curry has a good description of what happens when bad Climate and bad Weather predictions make for bad policy.

“I believe the Blizzard of 2015 for New York City is a political teaching moment. Amongst predictions of an unprecedented storm, hurricane wind strength, snow accumulations of 24 to 30 inches, NYC was shut down, transportation stopped, La Guardia closed and JFK only partially open, flights from the West Coast were stopped idling airplanes at LAX & SFO all in the name of the precautionary principle. Everything predicted based upon models

What transpired was an accumulation of 3 to 6 inches, winds 5 to 7 MPH. All transportation previously shut down due to the impending storm are back up running.

Now the teaching moment: What did the shut down of the East Coast, and in particular NYC cost? For one day, the airlines lost $ 1 billion dollars. Think of the lost wages, tips, and commerce, sales, deals, not made because of the precautionary principle.

See if one can find videos of the politicians who just yesterday talked about the largest storm ever! Read the pundits who were speaking of extreme and unprecedented weather.

Now, not being recorded as of yet, think of all the people whose lives were disrupted, lost money, lives which were made just a little be more difficult, think of all these people when they hear words like: weather, unprecedented, extreme, models and all due to man’s doing. Think of what will be recorded in the minds of people when Gavin Schmidt at Columbia University NYC and head of Goddard Institute of Space Studies, is on some talking head’s show stating knowingly about dire and calamitous events are yet to come.

The precautionary principle regarding weather, climate and models as evidence, etc. has real consequences when non-knowledgable and unsophisticated average Joe/Jane hears the forecast and then sees the reality….what do you expect people to do the next time politicians tell us the sky is falling and you need to pay-up and this will hurt? We will see how many politicians are apologizing today. I don’t expect President Obama will be apologizing for leading environmentalism down the rabbit hole either.

Greens Aren’t Communist – Their Far Worse Than That

Greens abhor industrial civilization and yearn to go back to a pre industrial agrarian utopia. Whereas Communists understand very well that industrialization is required to support a population of 7 billion people on planet earth. Let’s face it, to achieve the Green’s vision of an agrarian utopia at least 5 billion people would have to be erased from the face of the planet.
The Movie 12 Monkeys is a pretty good portrayal of the Green Ideology carried out to its logical conclusion:
  • An unknown and lethal virus has wiped out five billion people in 1996. Only 1% of the population has survived by the year 2035. A convict (James Cole) reluctantly volunteers to be sent back in time to 1996 to gather information about the origin of the epidemic. It turns out that the lethal virus was developed by a Green virologist Dr. Peters, who is motivated to exterminate mankind based on the conviction that the “planet cannot survive the excesses of Man” and hence deserves to be wiped out. 

  • Although Greens and Communists use the force of government to meld society into their respective visions of Utopia, Greens are far worse than Communists as followed:

  • Communists are for economic growth – Greens want zero or negative growth.
  • Communists want workers to unite to form a world wide industrial society that feeds, cloths and provides shelter for a growing number of workers – Greens want local production of everything (food, clothes, medicines, bicycles, everything) via small communities of workers in an pre industrial agrarian society.
  • Communists wants a strong military. The Greens want to abolish the military.
  • Communists imprison or kill their enemies. Greens want membership in ISIS and Al Qaeda to be legalized.
The Telegraph article below is a more complete description of the Greens Ideology vs Communism
Below is an image of Green KXL Pipeline Protestors showing how delusional and hypocritical Greens are utilizing all the benefits of an industrial fossil fuel based civilization while protesting it’s existence.
 The ultimate outcome of both Green and Communist Ideology is the lack of basic necessities and the death of individual freedom. But in the case of Communism their goal is to bring about the end of poverty not the creation of poverty like the Greens want.

Q & A To Understand The Temperature Record

Zeke Hausfeather of BEST states:

href=”http://judithcurry.com/2014/07/07/understanding-adjustments-to-temperature-data/”>Understandingjustments to Temperature Data.

……Nearly every single station in the network in the network has been moved at least once over the last century, with many having 3 or more distinct moves. Most of the stations have changed from using liquid in glass thermometers (LiG) in Stevenson screens to electronic Minimum Maximum Temperature Systems (MMTS) or Automated Surface Observing Systems (ASOS). Observation times have shifted from afternoon to morning at most stations since 1960, as part of an effort by the National Weather Service to improve precipitation measurements.

All of these changes introduce (non-random) systemic biases into the network. For example, MMTS sensors tend to read maximum daily temperatures about 0.5 C colder than LiG thermometers at the same location. There is a very obvious cooling bias in the record associated with the conversion of most co-op stations from LiG to MMTS in the 1980s, and even folks deeply skeptical of the temperature network like Anthony Watts and his coauthors add an explicit correction for this in their paper…..

Nearly every single station in the network in the network has been moved at least once over the last century, with many having 3 or more distinct moves.

From what I understand they do some fancy dancy statistics looking for ‘breaks’ in the data and use that as an excuse to adjust the data.

I can see two reason why that is completely bogus.
#1. They are complaining about station moves of less than a few miles generally speaking but they have ZERO problem smearing the temperature of 1(ONE) data station over half the Arctic or half the Antarctic. Does Not Compute…Does Not Compute…

#2. Meteorology: A Text-book on the Weather, the Causes of Its Changes, and Weather Forecasting By Willis Isbister Milham 1918

On page 68 he says a thermometer in a Stevenson screen is correct to within a half degree. It is most in error on still days, hot or cold. “In both cases the indications of the sheltered thermometers are too conservative.” On page 70
“The Ventilated thermometer which is the best instrument for determining the real air temperature, was invented by Assman at Berlin in 1887…will determine the real air temperature correctly to a tenth of a degree.”

He then goes on to say on page 77:

If a good continuous thermograph record for at least twenty years is available, the normal hourly temperatures for the various days of the year can be computed….

“the average temperature for a day is found by averaging the 24 values of hourly temperature observed during that day”

If the normals are based on twenty years of observations, it will be found that there is not an even transition from day to day, but jumps of even two or three degrees occur….

I maybe reading the situation wrong but that says to me that the ‘breaks’ in the data that BEST uses may well be naturally occurring jumps in the data from a chaotic system. If BEST and GISS are doing ‘adjustments’ based only on those jumps or breaks without any underlying testing such as running both sets for a few years to determine the true bias then all they are doing is introducing additional error to the system. Heck I am not sure they are even determining if the station was actually moved or had some other system change like a replacement thermometer.

Real Science

Why do you massively tamper with the temperature data, and turn a cooling trend into a warming trend?

You can’t use the raw surface data. It is a mess, affected by station moves, TOBS, different types of thermometers, missing data, etc. It needs large adjustments to be meaningful

Sounds bad – why not just use modern satellite data instead? It has much better coverage.

Satellite data has problems, and needs to be adjusted. The surface data is our most reliable data source.

In The Real World President Obama’s Progressive Policies Are Making Everyone Poor

The Progressive Left aka the Democrats like President Obama believe they know best not the American people. Progressives are so arrogant they believe their intellectual and moral superiority gives them the wisdom to rule America and transform her into a better society where everyone is equal. Equality being one of the Progressives prime dogmas. Forget the fact Progressives live in an Ivory Tower with no real world experience. Their self advancement and arrogance deludes them into believing their decisions are superior to the decisions created by millions of people competing in the free market of ideas. Free Market competition is another thing progressives abhor as the majority of times their decisions would never survive in the free market. Even with the use of government force most of their decisions fail but they pay no price for being wrong. Their swooning media makes sure of that. It is the American people that pay the highest price for Progressives bad decisions. Bad decisions that lead to the loss of freedom, security and the pursuit of happiness for all but the elite Progressives in power ruling America.

As the below YouTube Video clearly shows Progressive Policies Don’t Work In The Real World!!!
Chicago Activists Respond to SOTU: He Doesn’t Care about Our People

“In my world, on the south side and the west side of Chicago” Gresham says, “everything you (President Obama) spoke of in your speech, it doesn’t affect us. The stock market is at a record high, at 17,000. I can’t invest in the Dow Jones.”

McKinley say’s “the country is more racially divided” since President Obama took office six years ago, and the president has failed to correct it.

Watson had a message for new Republican congress, saying, “We hope that congress defunds Obamacare. We pray that congress do away with your amnesty executive order, giving and providing illegal aliens and immigrants work permits to make sure black don’t get jobs in our own community.
