Is Global Warming Caused by Too Little Government?

How does a hoax like a belief in human-caused climate change (AGW) die?

It happens over time as previous global warming believers find the courage to face facts, to stand up to the fraud and corruption that their peers have participated in, embrace truth and admit they were wrong. “Time to catch up folks; global warming alarmism is on its deathbed.” ~Bob Carter

The only rational response to climate change is to use empirical, observable evidence. Rational people can point to results from 28 million radiosondes, 6000 boreholes, 30 years of satellites, 3000 ARGO ocean diving thermometers, raw data from thousands of surface thermometers, as well 800 peer reviewed references which include studies of corals, caves, pollen grains, ocean floor sediments, ice cores, and diatoms. ~JoNova

A hoax dies when people look at the facts and give reality a chance. Unlike AGW True Believers skeptical scientists are not afraid of the facts and they celebrate the truth. Real scientists do not do not engage in the politics of fear.

Rational people understand that we have been in a global cooling period for a decade. And, there is no end to the global cooling in sight. Global warming may resume; perhaps after 30 to 70 years. Or, we may be heading into another ice age.

Meanwhile, the AGW True Believers still believe global warming is caused by too little power in the hands of federal government. Public-funded academia still fiddles as it waits for the productive to deal with reality. The Left still continues to demonize capitalism even when our future depends on a vibrant free market economy to be prepared for whatever happens, from wherever it may come. And, science authoritarians in the EPA are destroying science and civil discourse in the name of the enviornmental movement:

Some activists simply couldn’t make the transition from confrontation to consensus; it was as if they needed a common enemy. When a majority of people decide they agree with all your reasonable ideas the only way you can remain confrontational and antiestablishment is to adopt ever more extreme positions, eventually abandoning science and logic altogether in favour of zero-tolerance policies. ~Patrick Moore, Confessions of a Greenpeace Dropout…

There are no liberal Utopian societies out there that are going to help bail out America as America faces economic crisis.

Given that this has become a quasi-religious issue, it is hard to tell. However, my personal hope is that we will return to normative science, and try to understand how the climate actually behaves. Our present approach of dealing with climate as completely specified by a single number, globally averaged surface temperature anomaly, that is forced by another single number, atmospheric CO2 levels, for example, clearly limits real understanding; so does the replacement of theory by model simulation. In point of fact, there has been progress along these lines and none of it demonstrates a prominent role for CO2. It has been possible to account for the cycle of ice ages simply with orbital variations (as was thought to be the case before global warming mania); tests of sensitivity independent of the assumption that warming is due to CO2 (a circular assumption) show sensitivities lower than models show; the resolution of the early faint sun paradox which could not be resolved by greenhouse gases, is readily resolved by clouds acting as negative feedbacks. ~R.

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
