Sea World LIES

Having no shame about the hundreds of tonnes of greenhouse gases that they produce themselves by refrigerating a large outdoor pool to keep bears in a subtropical climate, or ignoring the simple fact that Polar Bear numbers have rebounded and are very healthy, or that despite the fact that astronomical global greenhouse gas output has produced no significant temperature rise yet, the Aussie Sea World have celebrated Polar Bear Day by claiming on Channel Nine that they are endangered . http://youtu.be/KR90M8AL5_s

The claim that there is a “dramatic decline in numbers in the wild” is a BLATANT LIE

Threatened? 
They are also threatened by an asteroid strike, which at present seems just as likely as human fossil fuel burning causing the planet to overheat, and the bears not being able to adapt to it.
Melting sea ice is obviously not going to threaten the whole species even if it does start melting and a few of them accidently drown.

Cartoonist Rick McKee – Augusta Chronicle

We in aussie get the usual superstitious bullcrap every time we get a summer heat wave so I have to resist the hypocrisy of pointing out that the record cold winters we are seeing in the northern hemisphere lately are consistent with the lack of sunspot activity seen in the Maunder Minimum/Little Ice Age.

I just thought this was amusing, that’s all.

While other deniers are dancing, I am sorry to see him go.
I hope the UNIPCC don’t replace him with someone with talent and charisma.

Global Governance

Here is some support for my contention on the sidebar of this blog that “Climate” is a massive plot to institute global governance by Leftists via the UN.

WUWT
The UN Climate End Game
Anthony Watts / 3 days ago February 18, 2015 
Guest opinion by David Archibald http://wattsupwiththat.com/2015/02/18/the-un-climate-end-game/

g“Everybody Wants To Rule The World” was a 1985 song by Tears For Fears. Now in 2015, a number of parties are doing their best to that end – ISIS in the Middle East, Russia chewing up the Ukraine, China in the East and South China Seas and the UN Climate Change Commission. A draft document out of Geneva gives details of the UN plan to rule the world.

ISIS, Putin, China et. al. are already constrained by international pressures, especially economic, this makes the threat of global governance a real worry. It is a worry because it is essentially anti-human.

Perspective On Modelling.

A computer model is just a model. It does not predict anything. It just models what might happen. It is purely specious to gather like minded models and present them as credible prediction. You can average data and get a useful result, if you average models you just get another model.

This expert delivers an expose’ on UNIPCC claims which are based on modelling.
Of course, this doesn’t matter, incorrect claims are just shrugged off. “Climate Change” is a belief system and disbelievers are “deniers”.
You can watch the lecture here - http://wattsupwiththat.com/2015/02/20/believing-in-six-impossible-things-before-breakfast-and-climate-models/if you want some science.

I just liked these images that he uses – this one shows the global temperature on the full range of temperature found on the planet. You will need to click on it to notice the tiny variations.
1988 was when it started warming, 1998 was when it stopped warming and 2014 was supposed to be the “hottest year ever”.
real temperature hotest yr

 

and this is why the UNIPCC climate models cannot be predictive and are just illustrative of their doomsday theory.

“…The climate system is a coupled non-linear chaotic system, and therefore the long-term prediction of future climate states is not possible…”
So states the IPCC’s Working Group I: The Scientific Basis, Third Assessment Report (TAR), Chapter 14 (final para., 14.2.2.2), p774.
http://www.ipcc.ch/ipccreports/tar/wg1/501.htm ipcc-models-predict-future
full paragraph -
” Further work is needed in eight broad areas:-
• Improve methods to quantify uncertainties of climate projections and scenarios, including development and exploration of long-term ensemble simulations using complex models. The climate system is a coupled non-linear chaotic system, and therefore the long-term prediction of future climate states is not possible. Rather the focus must be upon the prediction of the probability distribution of the system�s future possible states by the generation of ensembles of model solutions. Addressing adequately the statistical nature of climate is computationally intensive and requires the application of new methods of model diagnosis, but such statistical information is essential.”

Warmest Year In History – WRONG

It would be quite simple for our news media to pick up the phone and get a balancing comment when Climate Change claims are made.
There are any number of very qualified sceptics around.

In all the years I have been blogging I have NEVER seen that happen.
Here is a belated rebuttal to the recent global “hottest year on record” claims.

BOSTON GLOBE

No, 2014 wasn’t the ‘warmest year in history’
AP/file 2014
By Jeff Jacoby Globe Columnist  January 29, 2015 http://www.bostonglobe.com/opinion/2015/01/29/global-temperature-what-does-that-even-mean/YBuZQuXqAB5dJYznrRyVKI/story.html

” …All of which reasonably leads to the conclusion not that the planet has been relentlessly warming, but that the warming trend that peaked at the end of the 1990s has neither resumed nor reversed. Global warming has more or less been on hold since the turn of the 21st century. That hiatus poses something of an inconvenient truth to those who believe that anthropogenic carbon-dioxide is the key driver of climate change, since CO2 emissions have continued without letup.
         
You don’t have to be a scientist to realize that climate is complicated and hard to get right. Climate models have so far been unable to accurately predict changes in global temperature. Experts didn’t foresee the global cooling that began in the 1940s and didn’t anticipate the warming cycle that started in the late 1970s. Climate science is still in its infancy, and it would be folly to treat any single explanation for changes in global temperatures as impervious to challenge or skepticism…. “

Causes-all-the-bad-weather Theory.

The Earth’s temperature is not static, it constantly changes from a relatively warm period to a relatively cool period.
We have had a roman warm period, a medieval warm period, a little ice age, and even a global cooling scare in the nineteen seventies.

It is axiomatic that global temperature changes.
It is axiomatic that climate changes.
It is axiomatic that when global temperature changes, climate changes.

To claim that Global Warming will cause serious Climate Change is dogmatic.

It is dogmatic because the Green philosophy contends that the Earth without humans is perfect and static and that anything that humans do to it spoils it badly. They treat humanity as a virus infecting the natural environment.
That is why human Global Warming is always bad, never good.
The Vikings named a large island Greenland and their colonies prospered there for a long while, today that would be classified as the evil destruction of a pristine habitat for pengiuns, seals and big cuddly white polar bears.

If you are seeking definitive science, or even some kind of explanation, on why a warming of the globe causes seriously bad weather you will not find it in any of the reports put out by the UN IPCC.

This interesting scientific paper attempts to predict what effect global warming would have on atmospheric turbulence.

I think what they are trying to say is that the global temperature is remarkably stable and self-regulating.

Sceptics In Trouble Downunder

~meThe ALP/Greens look like winning Government in the large Aussie State of Queensland and this is putting huge pressure on the P.M. Tony Abbott and the rightists in the conservative Liberal Party.

Groan.
Why do we have to depend on Rightists for Climate scepticism?

The Queensland win was despite “saving-da-planet”, not because of it.
“Climate” hardly rated a mention – it is a dead issue with voters.

B8tZM5kCAAAo_RJThere are a lot of theories why they are in trouble of course but I see two main reasons, one is that Tony Abbott doesn’t know how to be Prime Minister - he didn’t consolidate their position. He became overwhelmed by his own importance.
The other reason is that both conservative Governments tried to pull the old Its-worse-than-we-thought-we-now-need-savage-cuts routine. (well, if you didn’t know the true fiscal position you should have known and should not have made promises!)

HA HA HA – U Do Get a Laugh Sometimes!

antarctic2These 23 greenies return from their Antarctic Junket after NOT finding any Global Warming!

Antarctica’s Totten Glacier, twice the size of Victoria, ‘melting from below’ – ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation) http://www.abc.net.au/news/2015-01-26/sea-water-melting-totten-glacier-in-antarctica-from-below/6047076

“But he said it was too soon to tell if the glacier was melting as a result of a changing global climate.”

But they could see where it had been!

They discovered that the liquid water beneath the ice was warmer than the frozen water in the ice – brilliant!

How much did we pay for this, again?!

They will spend more millions torturing the data they collected until they do find some Global Warming and keep going down there until they find the required Global Warming.

That may be somewhat futile, considering the Antarctic sea ice is the highest “on record”!

Antarctic Sea Ice hits another record 900,000 square kilometers above average « JoNova http://joannenova.com.au/2013/08/antarctic-sea-ice-hits-another-record-900000-square-kilometers-above-average/

In a TV interview the scientist admitted that it was shear good luck that they got anywhere near the Glacier!

These Greenies really do need a new Raison d’être – the Chinese will soon start to eclipse them with some real science out of the continent.
