Prof Singer KOs Climate Change

fredsinger2He whacked it with a left jab on sea level rise belowhttps://greenhousebullcrap.wordpress.com/2013/08/09/sea-level-defined/ – and now he follows up with a right hook to the staggering “Climate Change” alarm.

He confirms with scientific data that while there has been a spectacular rise in atmospheric carbon dioxide it has not produced any signifigant global warming.

He laments the distortion of science by the politics and dogma. Amen to that!

A Tale of Two Climate HockeySticks
By S. Fred Singer

Conclusion
Upon reflection on these temperature and CO2 data of the last thousand years, I conclude that the evidence presented here will cause unhappiness for both extreme alarmists and extreme skeptics.  Maybe that’s a good thing.

However, it still leaves open the question of climate sensitivity (CS), i.e., the actual influence of CO2 on global temperature.  CS has been steadily decreasing, from 3oC (for CO2 doubling) in the initial IPCC report.  I believe confidently that the real CS values may be much lower — although not quite zero.  I base it on what Dr. Rajendra Pachauri, chairman of the IPCC, has delicately called the 17-year “pause” in global warming of the near-surface, and on the near-absence of tropical atmospheric warming, as seen by weather satellites since 1978.

The scientific puzzle is why IPCC climate models predict large values for CS while the observations only show only small ones.”
