The climate science meta-narrative: invent models to explain why you agree with whatever the government wants to hear and pay for. It’s easy too because models can be made to say anything. Any model, including those predicting climate doom, can be tweaked to yield a desired result. I should know. ~Robert J. Caprara, (Confessions of a Computer Modeler)
We may learn someday that Western climatologists are like Douglas Adams’ clueless McKenna the “Rain God” (So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish) who to his vexation was followed everywhere by rainclouds. Instead of causing rain, climatologists and their mathematical models create an inexorable rise in average global temperatures where before global warming there was only weather.
Armed with the results of these models the government is there to help with theoretical solutions to all of life’s illusory problems, especially those that have arisen as a consequence of the unquenchable global warming that climatologists created using computers to input parameters into mathematical models that crunch mountains of recalibrated data.
Government scientists have eagerly taken on a supporting role in this endeavor much like the story of the farmer having problems with chickens that weren’t producing. The farmer went to a climatologist for help. After some quick modeling of the situation the climatologist says, I have a solution but it only works for spherical chickens in a vacuum.
With Western academia and media and all of the Eurocommies of Western Europe allied with the secular, socialist government bureaucracy – Americans face a tough time getting out from under the tyranny of scientists’ global circulation models. About all we can get agreement on is that these GCMs are in serious need of a “re-start.” Rather than shit-canning them altogether all we can hope is for statisticians to demand that the next generation of GCMs must recognize solar energy as the key independent variable in the climate change equation (scientists must admit that it’s been the sun all along).
Talking about an article in a recent issue of Science [June 13, 2014], Dennis Avery (see, Canada Free Press: ‘Science Recommends Climate Model Re-Start’), says some scientists are beginning to realize that, “the computer climate models are not effective at forecasting… [and] still cannot represent such huge variables as clouds and shifts in ocean currents… At the same time, new studies are revealing that the sun has an even bigger role in climate… One of the new papers finds that the amount of time the sun is obscured from the earth by clouds is highly correlated with temperatures over the past 50 years.”
We’re learning what goes up also goes down. Jan-Erik Solheima, et al., are predicting, an average temperature decrease of at least 1.0°C from solar cycle 23 to solar cycle 24 (The long sunspot cycle 23 predicts a significant temperature decrease in cycle 24). We’re also learning that academia’s modeling skills have been embarrassingly juvenile and woefully incomplete when it comes to taking account of the solar energy and ocean-atmosphere mechanisms that working together drive changes in the climate, as follows:
Formation of NADW [North Atlantic deep water] represents transfer of upper level water to large depths. The water is transported and spread throughout the Atlantic and exported to the Indian and Pacific oceans before updwelling in Antarctic waters. The return flow of warm water from the Pacific through the Indian ocean and the Caribbean to the North Atlantic, a distance of 40,000 km, takes from 13 to 130 years… There appears to be solar “fingerprints” that can be detected in climate time series in other parts of the world with each series having a unique time lag between the solar signal and the hydro-climatic response… with various lags from 0 years (Indian Ocean) to 34 years (Mississippi river flow) and 70 years (Labrador Sea ice)… [and] the top-down stratospheric response of ozone to fluctuations of shortwave solar forcing and the bottom-up coupled ocean–atmospheric surface response, acting together, can amplify a solar cyclical pulse with a factor 4 or more. (Solheima, et al., supra)
There is a lot we don’t know and never will know. What is certain is many in academia have sold us a bill of goods called global warming; and, the counterculture of the 60s that is now the dominant power in Washington is selling the soul of America down the river to hang onto political power.
We see the world piece by piece,
as the sun, the moon, the animal, the tree; but the whole,
of which these are shining parts,
is the soul. (Emerson)
