What is the evidence base for Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW)? Amazingly, it doesn’t exist. There are no classic texts on the subject and non-Western scientists liken climatology to the science of ancient astrology, practiced by tea leaf readers, and promoted by charlatans and flim-flammers–like Al Gore to flocks of bureaucrats and superstitious schoolteachers to children in dropout factories.
What we do have is a relative few number of pseudo scientists who are dedicated to isolating one lone factor from a complex dynamic multivariate system to add a needed gravitas to their one-dimensional preconceived notions, anecdotal opinions and apocalyptic view about the destruction of ecosystems if Western civilization is not forcefully inhibited by global central planning provided courtesy of a Governmental-Education Complex full of liberal utopians who hate capitalism. To that end we now have filing cabinets full of repetitive and narrowly focused global warming research with circular citations and biased data, all debunked by the cold slap in the face of perhaps many decades more of cooling oceans.
We also have simplistic weather programs called Global Circulation Models (GCMs) dreamed up by students that failed statistics that fail validation testing. GCMs simply do not agree with real world observations; none of them demonstrate any predictive ability whatsoever. That’s all the AGW ‘evidence’ we have and it’s god-awful.
AGW is a wacky story of an enviro-cum-religious-cum-Leftist political movement. And, the religion survives still. The AGW religion is one of the most hypocritical Western urban elitist snob inventions ever, complete with fantastic predictions by doomsday prophets about rivers running red, coastal inhabitants inundated by rising seas and hot waters hiding in the depths of the ocean ready to boil to the surface and rise like the Phoenix raining fire and brimstone on the wicked.
What about the global warming politics? Should it matter that it is impossible to ‘detect’ within the natural variation of the continually changing climate any global warming due to human activities? The liberal mainstream media and the ethical and moral relativism of the Left says, “Hell Nyet!“
The number of those who once were ‘believers’ and who now decry all of the AGW hooey are legion. No sane person ever goes the other way: no skeptic of AGW becomes a believer after spending the time to thoroughly understand the science and after having their noses rubbed in the deception and incompetence of the fearmongers of foul climate.
