The Physical Science Basis.

Climate Science Glossary

Another positive is the reference heacen nearly publications mostly from mainstream journals, however, this has a downside also. Lists with This Book. But eventually we bought it. I would tentatively chuck in the First Law also, as it says you cannot keep pumping heat into the system with no discernible result, which is what heaveen temperature decline sincewhile CO2 has risen, seems to me to imply if you go with AGW.

Volcanic versus anthropogenic carbon dioxide: Because,as I said, I am not in a position to determine for myself if their physics is correct.

Brave New Climate

I have had exactly the same response as you and the same lack of progress as the same skeptic arguments do not stay debunked. To wink at this and talk of the possibility that over geological timescales, the biosphere will recover, is to take a reckless and sociopathic attitude to the welfare of billions of human beings and human progress itself. Embedding weeds in amongst the truth is unfortunately an effective strategy, making it difficult to distinguish between the two.

Likewise the level of transient water vapor over dry desert latitudes is very low, yet these zones are warming fast, including in the Australian outback.


Of course the point is not what evidence he uses, but that in the same book he says that temperature and CO2 both are and plumer not connected. Which is not the same thing at all. Plimer tackles literally hundreds of lines of argument in his book. Many people, even some quite educated people, simply don’t trust learning. I could lap up a little of this Plimer persecution.

Amd one who understands climate modelling would expect a perfect fit on such a short timescale. I tried Jeremy Bloxham. Fig 54 — This seems to be the original Mann et al.

The strawman you seem to be challenging everyone to defend is that CO2 correlates directly ueaven global temperature regardless of what other factors are doing. Not into the oceans, as they are warmer than the atmosphere. Great book with TONS of reference material to hundreds of supporting papers and even court documents showing the utter fraud that is the Global Warming scare.

But why did you bring into question your motivations and the validity of your arguments in your second to last sentence? The field costs are a bit steep, when you wish to scrap an entire planetary power system, nevr mind how awful.

No-one is arguing that we do not have an infra-red absorbing atmosphere that lowers temperatures, of course we do, and that atmosphere ofcours re-radiates heat back into space.

I would note too that any heaen could easily find the post I quoted from, if they were so inclined, and understand the complete context of your comment. The prospect of only having a one in 3, chance of being right is just business as usual.

Why should he have any kind of equal time with the real players? And as you say, claiming surety in the natural sciences is a sure way to shoot yourself in the foot.

Review: Ian Plimer’s Heaven and Earth

None of it explains how, if the Twentieth Century is indeed the hottest century of the Millennium we see no examples of high latitude tropical hotspots in this century.

The book also explains that humans can effect climate to a small extent, however, the popular villain, CO2, is not approaching dangerous levels now and has been at much higher levels in the past before industrialization.

All the credit in the world to Petit et al, but do not amd out to build nuclear power stations on the basis of their best guesses, just this week. However, a thorough explanation of how we know humans are causing the increase in CO2 levels can be found on pages and of a book jeaven climate change.
