Fears and Tears About Global Warming a Big Teraflop

Why must we bury the AGW hypothesis, throw the money-changers out of their temples in Copenhagen and close down for good all of the margarita bars in Cancun where feckless UN-approved science authoritarians gather to vote on what is fact or fiction? Because there must no longer be a place reserved in Western science for those who only come to burn a witch or kick a Jew or hack off the limbs of the few so that the many will learn some terrible lesson we must all learn for our own good.

No longer can we afford to suffer those would abuse our good natures merely because they feel impelled to expel evils that only they see–at our expense! We must stop spending public funds to underwrite the activities of those who only wish to stir the pot of revenge in the hearts of self-defeating and hypocritical atheists who now find it impossible to live without their new global warming religion.

The global warming catastrophist’s conclusions about the future, “is woefully short of either theoretical or observational support. In part, of course, this is because the AGW hypothesis provides almost nothing in the way of a statement or a prediction which can be falsified. This difficulty in falsification of the hypothesis, while perhaps attractive to the proponents of the hypothesis, inevitably implies a corresponding difficulty in verification or support of the hypothesis,” as Dr. Eschenbach observed. And of course, Dr. Eschenbach would remind them too that continuing on this way means they must continue to ignore all of the “arguably cogent and certainly feasible scientific objections [that] have been raised against … [AGW theory] from the nature and sign of the forcings considered and unconsidered, to the existence of natural thermostatic mechanisms.”

Let’s face it: we all should exercise a greater degree of scientific skepticism. Obviously there will always be many idiots and ideologically-driven charlatans who do not care about the truth. Should we be among them? We must be honest enough, for example, to understand that the Earth has been in a cooling trend for a decade.

Finally, to that we have to add the general failure of what few predictions have come from the teraflops of model churning in support of the AGW hypothesis. We haven’s seen any acceleration in sea level rise. We haven’t seen any climate refugees. The climate model Pinatubo prediction was way off the mark. The number and power of hurricanes hasn’t increased as predicted. And you remember the coral atolls and Bangladesh that you and the IPCC [and Dr. Trenberth] warned us about… the ones that were going to get washed away by the oncoming Thermageddon? Bangladesh and the atoll islands are both getting bigger, not smaller. We were promised a warming of two, maybe even three tenths of a degree per decade this century if we didn’t mend our evil carbon-loving ways, and so far we haven’t mended one thing, and we have seen … well … zero tenths of a degree for the first decade…  (Willis Eschenbach)


About Wagathon

Hot World Syndrome—fear of a hotter, more intimidating world than it actually is prompting a desire for more protection than is warranted by any actual threat. A Chance Meeting– We toured south along the Bicentennial Bike Trail in the Summer of 1980, working up appetites covering ~70 miles per day and staying at hiker/biker campgrounds at night along the Oregon/California coast (they were 50¢ a day at that time). The day's ride over, and after setting up tents, hitting the showers, and making a run to a close-by store, it was time to relax. The third in our little bicycle tour group, Tom, was about 30 yards away conversing with another knot of riders and treating himself to an entire cheesecake for dinner. He probably figured Jim and I would joke about what a pig he was eating that whole pie and decided to eat among strangers. Three hours later after sharing stories and remarking on a few coincidences that turned up here and there, Tom and one of the former strangers realized they were cousins, meeting in this most unlikely place for the first time. ~Mac
