Climate scientists attack new paper predicting a catastrophic 13-degree temperature rise

arctic-glacier-calvingWhen #Climate Change alarmists think your new paper is too alarmist, you know you’ve got a problem. That’s what happened to Carolyn Snyder of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), who published a study in “Nature this week warning of a catastrophic 13-degree Fahrenheit rise in temperatures. Snyder reached her conclusions by doing an extensive, time-consuming reconstruction of past temperatures using two million years of global sea surface temperatures.

Snyder used ocean sediment cores to create the temperature timeline by cataloging 20,000 such reconstructions and then weighed each one to build a time series of average surface temperatures. After creating this climate record, she says capping all man-made greenhouse gas emissions today still won’t prevent future temperature increases. She calculated a 7-degree Celsius (13 degrees Fahrenheit) rise in a couple thousand years. Other studies have shown that only a complete power shutdown can avoid any future warming.

‘Problematic conclusions’

Climate scientists say the conclusions drawn from the research don’t have the data to back up such claims. Even chief climate guru Gavin Schmidt of NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) called the study’s conclusions “simply wrong,” saying there might be a 0.5 to 1.5 degree Celsius or even 2-degree rise if all man-made emissions are stopped now.

Jeffrey Severinghaus of the San Diego Scripps Institution of Oceanography said Snyder’s conclusions aren’t in sync with the data she collected and are based on one fundamental error: the sensitivity of CO2 on glaciations. He says the “problematic conclusion doesn’t flow from the main meat of the paper.”

    So now the EPA are stepping out of their regulatory box to manufacture scary global warming stories that other scientific organizations gag on ? Who did the peer review of Snyder’s paper ? How can so called reputable science organizations be hundreds of percent different on their scary global warming predictions and the best actual measurement tool ,satellites ,show virtually no warming in 20 years ? Hhm !!
    Now quick before a dog at the EPA eats the source data and climate model program
    let’s see the modelers calculations that created this bit of fantasy . No doubt Nature would have been provided a copy too.
    Gee can’t wait to see if her scary projections are right …in a couple thousand years .
    At least Al Gore was a bit braver with the prophesies of an ice free Arctic that never happened in his time frame . In any event who cares as long as we continue warming
    the plants and animals will be overall far better off than a cooling trend once it sets in again .
    Can we expect an even greater number of scary global warming stories prior to the election ? Although a 13 Degree F projection going out 2 thousand years from now is a big whooper to top there must be someone in the scary global warming industry that can do it . So what exactly was the IPCC projection ?
    In any event lets hope she is right . Think about how much less fossil fuel will need to be used and the fish will have a way bigger play pen too . Plants and trees will be going ballistic with growth .

      Amber,
      Hello from Australia where we have so called scientists, and other odd folk, in competition with each other to win Gold, Silver and Bronze in The Climate Catatastrophe Olympics.
      I believe Carolyn Snyder has made a spectacular Jump of the Shark to take the lead but i assure you that our Australian Institutions will be on Red Alert and beavering away, day and night, to best this complete and utter Science Fiction.
      Prior to this my favourite Climate Study was by Aussie Joelle Gergis.
      This paper is well explained at Climate Audit under …Joelle Gergis, Data Torturer…
      ‘Gergis says that the only problem with the original article was a “typo” in a single word. Rather than “taking the easy way out” and simply correcting the “typo”, Gergis instead embarked on a program that ultimately involved nine rounds of revision, 21 individual reviews, two editors and took longer than the American involvement in World War II. However, rather than Gergis et al 2016 being an improvement on or confirmation of Gergis et al 2012, it is one of the most extraordinary examples of data torture (Wagenmakers, 2011, 2012) that any of us will ever witness…
      You may be aware of this sheer stupidity and nonsense paper but any search involving Gergis and Typo will give you plenty of further info.
      As you mention …how do these junk studies get published by so called reputable journals and that Peer Review they are always claiming as magnificent but lets such worthless junk as Snyder and Gergis thru?
      May I finish with a Back To The Future Gag?
      Who were her co authors,. Professor Emmett Brown and Mr Marty McFly and out of The Carolyn Snyder Paper and The Jetson Family Cartoon Show which is the more ‘Science Fiction’ of the pair.
      Cheers from The Land of the Kangaroo.

    Hello , You raise an excellent point … These people are beginning
    to make Al Gore and the IPCC modest in scary predictions .
    If Nature is prepared to publish complete crap their credibility is gone
    and so will be their business . As they flame out they do more bizarre things to
    draw attention . Sort of like many thinly talented pop stars with costume malfunctions and other tricks to get their name out . The USA election has gone to nutville stage for example when both mega liars have ” fact checkers ” .
    Maybe people accept being lied to because it’s now a culture of unaccountable .

      Some of the so-called ” fact checkers ” are mega-liars and cheap leftist propagandists.

      The demorats have so many ways of lying and propagandizing that they make Joe Goebbels look like a pre-K reject.
