What More Can Anybody Say About Global Warming?
|Global Warming was a scientific hypothesis, but it has been thoroughly tested and falsified. It is now a dead theory. [Insert Monty Python parrot sketch here].|
|There is no scientific theory of Climate Change. It is just a political and commercial slogan. It means bad weather.|
|The baseless demonization of that stuff of life, carbon, and its wholly benign dioxide is one of the most destructive perversions in the history of human thought. It has brought Europe, for example, to the edge of the economic abyss.|
|The theory and models for global warming rested almost solely on putative positive feedback mechanisms.|
|There is evidence that the modellers searched almost exclusively for potential positive feedback mechanisms.|
|Positive feedback makes models unstable, so that the outputs always ramp up regardless of inputs. The unscientific secrecy surrounding the modelling programs makes this impossible to investigate.|
|The primary input to the weather system, the Sun, is routinely ignored.|
|The observed stability of the climate indicates that actual feedback mechanisms are negative and that Le Chatelier-Braun Principle applies.|
|The claimed temperature rise over years is very small and inconsequential, also probably below the practicable level of detectability.|
|Smoothing processes, such as averaging, preserve low frequency noise, which is often mistaken for trends.|
|The attempts to measure and calculate global temperatures have been fraught with dubiety; including ramshackle instrumentation systems, unexplained data adjustments and, frankly, downright fraud.|
|The history of the subject closely follows Langmuir’s laws of bad science (more accurately symptoms of pathological science, I originally wrote “laws” as I did not have a section on symptoms).|
|The debate has now reached Langmuir’s symptom number 5. (Criticisms are met by ad hoc excuses thought up on the spur of the moment). Searching for the “lost” heat in the deep oceans, for example, is nothing more than a pathetic joke.|
|Climate change was symptomatic of the gross intrusion into science by politics. The grotesquely corrupt practices revealed by Climategate, for example, were only exceeded in sleaze by the crudity of the subsequent political whitewash of that sordid episode.|
|It has all become extremely boring.|
Not holding my breath waiting for anything like factual debate from our ruling parasites. Their record of refusing to debate says it all.
John is the compiler of the very amusing Warmlist of things the media have promised us global warming is causing. Looking at it shows how very far from in any way honest our MSM are.
