Like Hercules With The Hydra

When combating “Climate Change” alarm, we feel often like Hercules with the Hydra – you chop off one head and it just grows another!

It is also very much like combating Creationism – people will believe what they want to believe and disregard the rest – you knock down one argument and they just ignore you and proceed along their way with another.

Simon & Garfunkule –
“I am just a poor boy.
Though my story’s seldom told,
I have squandered my resistance
For a pocketful of mumbles,

Such are promises
All lies and jest
Still, a man hears what he wants to hear
And disregards the rest.”

 ” … Heracles courageously attacked the beast, flaying at each head with his sword, (in some versions a scythe) but he soon realized that as one head was severed another grew in its place. Heracles called for help from Iolaus,…

A UK Court of Law determined that one of the many faults in “An Inconvenient Truth” was that yes, carbon dioxide levels do mimick the temperature record in Antarctic ice cores – they match very well – BUT – the CO2 levels follow the temperature levels, not the other way around – DURH! (temp. causes CO2 rise, CO2 does not cause temp. rise)
( http://www.telegraph.co.uk/earth/earthnews/3310137/Al-Gores-nine-Inconvenient-Untruths.html )
This of course has had to be fixed.
Here is an article that works on the temperature record so it now closely follows the carbon dioxide record and thus can be used to “prove” “Climate Change”.

This is “The Science” of Global Warming – “revision” “correction” “reconstruction” – “projection” – always has been.
(the new “reconstruction” does not change the original data of course – in the original ice core data used by Al Gore, the CO2 record stills FOLLOWS the temperature record – that has not changed – the earth warms up and a hundred years later the CO2 levels are also up – just like CO2 bubbles appearing in a warming-up Coke bottle! Whodivethunkit!)

Cuckoo, cuckoo, cuckoo… Read the initial debunking at the end of the article –

WUWT
A new paper in Nature suggests CO2 leads temperature, but has some serious problems
Posted on April 4, 2012by Anthony Watts
This is an attempt to redefine the graph made famous by Al Gore in An Inconvenient Truth that showed temperature leading CO2.

We have the same problems with the ARGO float data which has failed to show any warming of the oceans (in fact a slight cooling) and also has to be fixed, “revised”, “corrected”, “reconstructed”, with backward “projection” to “earlier data” – SHEESH!

“In the clearing stands a boxer,
And a fighter by his trade
And he carries the reminders

Of ev’ry glove that laid him down
And cut him till he cried out
In his anger and his shame,
“I am leaving, I am leaving.”

But the fighter still remains”

Lie-la-lie…

of course you never get the “Scientists, Dismiss, Debunked NATURE Climate Change Paper” headline do you?
