Spot The Deliberate Mistakes

This article on Jo Nova’s Blog cites the AUS Attorney General in a foray into Climate Change and free speech.

Climate change believers are using ‘medieval’ tactics to silence debate says George Brandis http://joannenova.com.au/2014/04/climate-change-believers-are-using-mediaeval-tactics-to-silence-debate-says-george-brandis/
Originally from here – http://www.spiked-online.com/freespeechnow/fsn_article/the-state-should-never-be-the-arbiter-of-what-people-can-think#.U1GUKI2KDIW

imagesGeorge Brandis made three mistakes.

ONE   He “doesn’t see why asking questions about the science should evoke a shocking form of authoritarianism and anti-intellectualism“.
This is because doubt is the enemy of Alarmism, if there is any doubt in the mind of the public they will want to wait and see, not accept the we must act now precautionary principle and the whole thing will fail to launch. That is why sceptics must be attacked as “deniers” George.

TWO   He “describes as ‘deplorable’ the way climate change has become a gospel truth that you deny or mock at your peril
This is because Climate Change is more a spiritual belief and people get very upset if you deny their spiritual beliefs, George.

THREE    He “describes how Penny Wong, the Labor Party senator for South Australia and minister for climate change in the Julia Gillard government, would ‘stand up in the Senate and say “The science is settled””
George, the “science is settled” claim is an oxymoron – science that cannot be argued and debated and disproven is, by definition, not science.

~meIt is very ironic that a staunch conservative is bemoaning freedom of speech, when I was young man “The Left” had the high moral ground.
George is right, but he has to get people to vote for him every three years, better to smile at Greenies, pat them on the head, agree with their spiritual beliefs but never take them seriously, that is the practical political position, George. Oh, and starve them of funds.

Storm In A Proverbial Teacup.

storm ina cupHa ha ha.

The response by Greenies to the latest Alarmist report has gone from farcical to ridiculous.

This Greenie article carries on as if the world is taking them seriously – WRONG.

Uh, Nick, mate – NOBODY CARES!

Climate Change, terminally ill, will slowly die out as its life support (billions of dollars) is cut off.

“The Left” really do need to find a more productive cause célèbre – the Climate Revolution with World Governance via the UN has failed.

UN IPCC Deprecated On “The Drum”

The bourgeois trendy inner city activists in the Green/ALP Coalition are still ignoring the hapless aussie battler who doesn’t believe in more and more sacrifice to try and get the Globe to follow our expensive self-destructive example to save-da-planet.

Now even the Trendy Intellectuals on “The Drum” (Mon 14/4/14) have deserted them. OMG – whodive-thunk-it!

All that remains is to choke off the huge money flow to the sterile “Climate” Research and Renewables industry and to call the AUS ABC to account for their failure. They have sniggered and sneered at “Deniers” for years and decided to spare us almost any counter-argument for our own good right from the start.

Crazy Alert Indeed

I thought I would debunk this article of trite pap for you – easy peasy. My comments in pink.

Anna Jane Joyner on Years of Living Dangerously and Climate-Change Skepticsinspiredglamour.com

http://www.glamour.com/inspired/blogs/the-conversation/2014/04/how-to-shut-down-a-climate-cha.html

Crazy alert: Despite rising sea levels, extreme weather events, acidifying oceans, and a major report by the UN that predicts the impacts of global warming to be “severe, pervasive, and irreversible,” a recent Pew poll revealed that only four in 10 Americans consider climate change to be a major threat. (Excuse me while I pick my jaw up off the floor.)
You can fool some of the people all of the time and all of the people some of the time but you can’t fool all of the people all of the time. Sealevel rise – normal. Extreme weather events – normal. Acidifying oceans – normal. A major alarmist report from the UNIPCC – normal. Waiting, waiting, waiting…

On left: Anna Jane Joyner and her father, Pastor Rick Joyner; on right: Anna Jane telling Dad how it is.

Luckily for us, environmental activist Anna Jane Joyner, who is featured alongside correspondent/TV vampire Ian Somerhalder in the new James Cameron documentary Years of Living Dangerously (premiering on Showtime this Sunday, April 13, at 10 P.M. ET/PT), has some experience dealing with skeptics. As campaign coordinator at the Western North Carolina Alliance, Anna Jane, 29, uses her evangelical background to persuade congregations and preachers in her community to join the fight against climate change. But her biggest challenge is convincing her own father. Pastor Rick Joyner is the founder and executive director of Morningstar Ministries—an evangelical empire consisting of churches, schools, and even a publishing house—and his conservative ideology leaves him doubting the (ahem, NASA-approved) science. Anna Jane told Glamour how she makes her case at the dinner table with her dad, so you can steal her comebacks the next time you’re in a global warming showdown.

The Argument: Climate change is natural.

Anna Jane’s Comeback: “One of my dad’s theories is that the planet goes through natural warming and cooling cycles. But what’s unnatural is the amount of carbon we’re pouring into the atmosphere and the rate at which we’re doing it. The fact is, 97 percent of climate scientists agree that climate change is happening and that humans are causing it. If you had cancer, and 19 out of 20 doctors told you to seek treatment immediately, would you believe the one who said ‘it’s just a natural cycle’?”
The “97 per cent” claim has been debunked, but more telling is that Oct , 2005  two Australian scientists were awarded the Nobel prize for medicine for their discovery that stomach ulcers can be caused by a bacterial infection – over 99% of scientists and Doctors believed that this was impossible and over 99% of them were WRONG!

The Argument: There’s not enough evidence.

Anna Jane’s Comeback: “My dad thinks we should wait for even more evidence before taking action. There is so much misinformation out there funded by people with industry interests, and it’s been tragically successful—science is one of those areas where any element of doubt, no matter how small, will stall individuals from taking action. But when nearly every major scientific organization in the world agrees about the risks of climate change, it’s time to move forward. I don’t have a Ph.D. in climate science, but I have enough sense to pay attention to the people who do! We are the last generation to get a say on our planet’s future, and we don’t have the luxury of dragging our feet.”
Scientific organisations reflect their membership and a lot of their membership are making a good living out of Climate Change have you ever tried to get a doctor or a lawyer to criticise a fellow professional – good luck!

The Argument: But this winter was freezing! 

Anna Jane’s Comeback: “While parts of the U.S. spent the winter bundled up thanks to the polar vortex, Australia was on fire, and California was in one of the worst droughts we’ve ever seen. Climate change doesn’t just bring higher temperatures, it accelerates and worsens extreme weather patterns, threatening our way of life and costing us billions of dollars in disaster relief. We filmed part of my Years segment on the Gulf Coast, where I grew up, and being back there—watching the sunset, smelling the salt air—it really reinforced why I do this work. It’s about protecting the places and communities that we love. How can you argue with that?”
Climate Change is based on Global Warming. The Globe is not warming. When it was warming it was well within natural variability. Picking out isolated examples of what may happen is insulting to our intelligence.

The Argument: It’s a liberal agenda.

Anna Jane’s Comeback: “Because it was Al Gore who put climate change on the national stage [with his film An Inconvenient Truth], conservative evangelicals like my dad (and many other high-profile Republicans, like Rush Limbaugh and Donald Trump) see it as a liberal, politicized issue. Climate science is confusing, complex, and scary, and sometimes the easiest thing to do is to write it off as a left-wing conspiracy. But it’s not a political issue; it’s a scientific issue—and more than that, it’s a moral issue. Trust me, you don’t want to be on the wrong side of history on this one.”
The instigators of Climate Change ARE all leftists. Their big success was to corrupt some on the centre-right who had a well-meaning desire to help the environment. The big-government, global-governance agenda of the demanded solutions soon disabused them of that!

Want to help, but don’t know where to start? You don’t have to be a full-time activist to fight climate change. There are lifestyle choices you can make, like biking or taking public transportation to work, eating local foods, or practicing Meatless Mondays. You can also get involved with your local Beyond Coal Campaign, whether it’s by donating money, reposting petitions on social media, or volunteering your time. Go to sierraclub.org to find out more.

Oh, and don’t forget to check out the trailer for Years of Living Dangerously below. The series features Jessica Alba, Olivia Munn, Matt Damon, Harrison Ford, and others. Not a Showtime subscriber? You can still watch the first episode online at yearsoflivingdangerously.com.
So tragic that “The Left” of politics have embraced the fundamentally anti-human philosophy of environmentalism which demands so much sacrifice from the billions of impoverished people on the earth in favour of a rich elite.

Methane – NOT

This excellent essay not only debunks Methane as a “greenhouse gas”, but it allows you to parley your high school physics into an understanding of how the greenhouse gas thing works as a whole.

Water vapour is by far the most dominant GHG and carbon dioxide and methane are only effective to a small extent where their absorption effects extent outside the overwhelming effect of water vapour.

WUWT
Methane The Irrelevant Greenhouse Gas  Watts Up With That#more-107326#more-107326 http://wattsupwiththat.com/2014/04/11/methane-the-irrelevant-greenhouse-gas/#more-107326

Farmers” …CO2 has absorption bands centered around 2.5 microns, 4.3 microns, and has a broad band out beyond 13 microns. Consequently, CO2 adds a small contribution to the greenhouse effect. Notice that sometimes CO2 bands overlap with H2O bands, and with vastly more H2O present, CO2 doesn’t matter in those bands.

Looking at the second graph in the figure, methane (CH4) has narrow absorption bands at 3.3 microns and 7.5 microns (the red lines). CH4 is 20 times more effective an absorber than CO2 – in those bands. However, CH4 is only 0.00017% (1.7 parts per million) of the atmosphere. Moreover, both of its bands occur at wavelengths where H2O is already absorbing substantially. Hence, any radiation that CH4 might absorb has already been absorbed by H2O. The ratio of the percentages of water to methane is such that the effects of CH4 are completely masked by H2O. The amount of CH4 must increase 100-fold to make it comparable to H2O.

Because of that, methane is irrelevant as a greenhouse gas. The high per-molecule absorption cross section of CH4 makes no difference at all in our real atmosphere.

Unfortunately, this numerical reality is overlooked by most people. There is a lot of misinformation floating around, causing needless worry. The tiny increases in methane associated with cows may elicit a few giggles, but it absolutely cannot be the basis for sane regulations or national policy.”

NOTE – “The amount of CH4 must increase 100-fold to make it comparable to H2O.”

Natural Forcings Paper.

Cosmic RaysThe UNIPCC dismiss “natural forcings” as to small and to long term to affect their doomsday global temperature alarm.
The research below may explain the pause in global temperature rise which their climate models have failed to do.
Fact is their theory is falsified by “the pause”. Whatever the cause, “natural forcings” have neutralised global warming for over ten years now and cannot be dismissed anymore.
Perhaps one day we will be able to accurately predict natural temperature fluctuations and discern them from manmade ones and the UNIPCC can be taken seriously again.

This paper is the latest in the growing evidence that solar activity and the cosmic ray flux are having a much more direct direct on global temperature by affecting cloud cover.

The NON Governmental Panel

Every year the NIPCC produces a large, fully peer reviewed scientific report on the Global effects of an increase in a biologically very active tiny trace gas in the atmosphere – Carbon Dioxide.

Every year it is ignored by the MSM.
Who wants to read about what is not going to happen?!
It is disappointing that they treat their readers with such contempt. Just as well their readers also have the Internet!

The New UN IPCC Report

The UN IPCC have had to resort to the usual tactics again.

ONE   Pre-publicity to prime the media.
TWO   Leaks – “we have obtained an exclusive copy and it’s worse etc., etc.”
THREE   The generation of a gargantuan report which nobody actually reads.
FOUR   The creation of a P. C. summary of the report in secret.
FIVE   Leak the summary to sympathetic journals - “we have obtained an exclusive copy and it’s worse etc., etc.”
SIX    The release of the summary and the report together with great fanfare.

SEVEN   Duck for cover and ignore the storm of criticism.

These two News Limited articles from the Mainstream UK media summarise the process and the deception.
