In the field of global warming freedom from ignorance is the wisdom to know man is not all-powerful. Not to give the Sun its due is just nuts! Observations from Lindzen & Choi (2009) are very telling, as follows:
The cause. “Surface temperature is near-solely determined… by how much sunlight actually strikes the Earth’s surface… (Soon, 2009).”
Heat goes where? The oceans, where all parties agree 80-90% of all heat held in the atmosphere by greenhouse gases must go, show no net accumulation of heat energy in 70 years and slight cooling for 6 years (Douglass & Knox, 2009).
What stops the Sun? More, cloud cover will offset the warming, not amplify it as the IPCC had thought (Spencer, ’08).
What else is the IPCC wrong about? The tropical upper air, predicted by the IPCC to warm at thrice the surface rate if we caused global warming, has warmed no faster than the surface… (Douglass et al., 2008), and, climate sensitivity is less than one-sixth of the IPCC’s central estimate. Its models all predict that as the Earth warms less radiation will escape to space, but the measured reality is that more radiation gets out, so less warming arises.
So, what’s going on? Government is funding a disinformation campaign and academia is beating the drum, warning us all of a non-problem. Why are they lying about global warming? Who is trying to extinguish the torch of individual liberty in America? Who is using global warming to sabotage capitalism and to take over the free enterprise economy to save the world?
When Job #1 is to prevaricate, fabricate and fornicate truth while it is the job of the rest of humanity to work for a living to pay enough taxes to keep the fornicators in their crapulent lifestyles of pseudo-scientific anti-Americanism, that is an inescapable clue that you now live in a Leftist, liberal fascist society. Those who depend on transfer payments from a secular, socialist government could care less about the personal freedom of others. The death of America makes all of humanity a victim: Judeo-Christian, industrialized America has been the only active participant on the globe supporting people yearning for freedom from tyranny, despotism, atheism and liberal fascism.
End of scare: Climate sensitivity of 0.5 C [i.e., not 3° C as the UN-IPCC claimed] is thus determined. ~Lindzen & Choi, 2009
With such a small amount of climate sensitivity, teasing out any human influence supposedly due to increased atmospheric CO2 — within the variance of climate change due to natural causes — would be extraordinarily difficult — actually, impossible — even if the reliability of data was not in question. That is why the mathematics of McShane and Wyner is so important and should be taught in schools as the chalkboard squeak heard ’round the world: statistically, there is absolutely no human signal in the data used by the ‘hockey stick’ fabricators of global warming alarmism.
Perhaps some may wish to debate whether the use of proper mathematics in the field of climatology is optional but the debate over. The AGW hypotheses certainly favors the view that ‘mathematical realism’ independent of the intuition and beliefs of researchers is indispensable. Without the independence and objectivity of honorable users of the scientific method, all of the conclusions of the global warming alarmists amount to nothing more than dogma, politics and propaganda.
In the debunking of MBH98/99/08 (aka, the ‘hockey stick’ graph) the M&W paper should inspire other statisticians and that may be their greatest contribution. Real scientists do not have to take side: nature speaks for itself. That global warming is a hoax is not even the issue because the proper use of math shouldn’t be a debate. M&W proved that by simply picking up the chalk and outlining the dead bodies.
The Medium is the Message and that message is clear: There never was a human ‘signal’ in tree ring proxy data that Michael Mann used to fabricate the ‘hockey stick’ graph that the Eurocommies and Western academia used to demonize and loot America. The UN-IPCC ‘consensus of opinion’ is shot to hell. Global Warming Theory is essentially a ‘science’ without mathematics: sort of like the Sun without the heat and vice versa.
AGW is not a problem it is a symptom of a problem. The claimed consensus concerning global warming is really just the opinion of those who have been destroying the culture, society and science all along and all who sign onto the AGW bandwagon are really outing themselves as pariahs of science.
