Lionel Mandrake: So it's OK for me to burn my tire pile?
Uncle Tractor: [i560.photobucket.com image 802x576]Hm ...Should I believe the people who have dedicated their lives to studying the climate, or should I believe the people who are making huge fortunes on fossil fuel ...? Decisions, decisions ...
Marcus Aurelius: where all the heat is going
Il Douchey: All these people who have dedicated their lives to studying climate, and yet none of them, not one, predicted the fifteen year (and counting) "hiatus" from global warming that we are currently experiencing. How did all those models miss that so completely? What else are they missing?
djseanmac: I wonder where his research grants come from?
Mikey1969: I know that I sure as shiat would LOVE to live in a hiatus zone.
quatchi: Republicans embrace climate science denial because the party has been firmly in the back pocket of various big energy concerns for decades.
Garet Garrett: Mikey1969: I know that I sure as shiat would LOVE to live in a hiatus zone.Pretty sure you already do. Do you even know what the "G" stands for in AGW?
Garet Garrett: We have an entire industry that is 100% dependent on responsible for climate change
ModernPrimitive01: We've got no chance as a species
JRoo: Uncle Tractor: [i560.photobucket.com image 802x576]Hm ...Should I believe the people who have dedicated their lives to studying the climate, or should I believe the people who are making huge fortunes on fossil fuel ...? Decisions, decisions ...But millionaire scientists who get all their grant money through an international conspiracy of falsified data!
Il Douchey: Hmmmm...All these people who have dedicated their lives to studying climate, and yet none of them, not one, predicted the fifteen year (and counting) "hiatus" from global warming that we are currently experiencing. How did all those models miss that so completely? What else are they missing?The true believers have staked their professional reputations on this being real and as they say it is. For them, there is no turning back -no matter what
dwrash: Science should just shut up until it has a reproducible model that has been verified for a handful of years
oryx: It must be true that GW is caused by humans. The German and American governments told the UN scientists to say so.
MindStalker: Not a 15 year hiatus, 1998 was an exceptionally hot year, the overall trend is still up. But yes they didn't accurately predict that the ocean would absorb much of the C02, because it had never happened before. The ocean absorbing the CO2 ISN'T a good thing. It ultimately leads to more problems down the line.
Garet Garrett: Curious about your chart, though: The average global temperature is 0.5C?
LouDobbsAwaaaay: "I think that the latest IPCC report has truly sunk to level of hilarious incoherence," Dr. Richard Lindzen told Climate Depot, a global warming skeptic news site. "They are proclaiming increased confidence in their models as the discrepancies between their models and observations increase."It's easy to throw out these hatchet-pieces to friendly, agenda-driven media outlets. Let me know when you plan to submit your analysis to a reputable, peer-reviewed journal, Dick.
Garet Garrett: djseanmac: I wonder where his research grants come from?This line of attack is laugh-out-loud funny. We have an entire industry that is 100% dependent on climate change, whose spending, just in the US, has run into the multiple HUNDREDS of billions of dollars over the last decade or so. If climate change stops being a hot issue, many, many of these folks will be out on their butts, preparing skinny lattes for their also-out-of-work art history colleagues.But sure, anyone who dissents from what the most dependent of them claim to be the "consensus"? It must be because getting 5% of their annual operating income from a "multinational" has corrupted them beyond credibility.
joeshill: You might want to look up Richard Lindzen on Google Scholar.
joeshill: Here are the actual numbers from the study.[img.fark.net image 564x329]
MithrandirBooga: Someone's whitewashing something, but it's not the UN...
Sybarite: Lindzen isn't just some amateur contrarian, he's a professional.
deadsanta: From Linzen's wiki page, take with salt grain:"In November 2004, climate change skeptic Richard Lindzen was quoted saying he'd be willing to bet that the earth's climate will be cooler in 20 years than it is today. When British climate researcher James Annan contacted him, however, Lindzen would only agree to take the bet if Annan offered a 50-to-1 payout."So, he's a climate denier, but only if he gets 50-1 odds lol.
Rev. Skarekroe: Look, if you can't be 100% sure about something, then you shouldn't do anything. That's always the best policy.
