Revisiting The Facts on Climate Change

sunEvery now and then I am tempted to look at Warmist websites in order to learn what they mean. So I had a look at ‘about.com’  In case you don’t know it is not the Globe that is warming – oh no! – it is the Atmosphere – quite literally, I am assured. (I like this use of the word literally. The atmosphere is ‘literally warming up’ according to this Warmist website. Where did they place the thermometer?)

What Is Global Warming?

Global warming is, quite literally, when temperatures of the world’s atmosphere rises. Between 1956-2005, the average earth’s temperature rose .13°C per decade. This might not seem like much, but it was double the rate for the 100 years from 1906 to 2005. Temperatures in colder areas, like the Arctic, rose twice as fast as the average.
http://useconomy.about.com/od/criticalssues/p/global_warming.htm?utm_term=facts%20on%20climate%20change&utm_co 

The atmospheres are some 62 miles high wrapped round a Globe hurtling through space round the Sun in a mighty ellipse. There is no such thing as a temperature of the atmosphere – such an animal does not exist. Even in the troposphere there is a huge range of temperatures, as the temperature declines by 2 degrees centigrade for every 1,000 feet of altitude. There is simply no way that the temperature of the Earth can be gauged.

Oh yes! There is an average, but what is it an average of?  Answer: A few measly pinpricks on the surface to the Planet. But that is ridiculous, since we already know that the near surface is the warmest part of the atmosphere. So an average of these pinpricks is meaningless – in no way does it indicate an average of the temperatures of the four levels of atmosphere.

It is so obvious to a normally intelligent person that there is no way to take the temperature of anything so vast and so constantly in flux as the atmosphere. Some smart bloke wrote that what goes up stays up, referring of course to Carbon Dioxide. He simply has not noticed that rain falls down, gravity, and at this very moment snow is falling down outside my window. He omits to mention winds, which transport vast masses of the atmosphere, from one area to another. Presently we have bitter winds from the East, and hopefully before too long we will receive warmer air from the Sahara. He evidently has never heard of the Coriolis effect nor that hot air rises.

I am accused by my adversaries of not ‘believing’ in climate change. But that is absurd. Every day, every hour, every minute and every second the weather everywhere is changing. There is constant change, inevitable change, and this constant inevitable change has been happening to the Biosphere since it was first created. Of course some of my learned adversaries declare that they are not talking about the weather – oh no because any Tom Jack can observe the weather for themselves – oh no they are talking about climate and the climate is – wait for it – an average of the weather in a particular place over a pre-determined period of time.

So we have the truly wonderful argument so often repeated on the Science pages of the BBC that climate change is producing climate change and we must not do nothing, we must fight to oppose climate change, since in their opinion changes of climate are the biggest danger to mankind – bigger than the threat of ISIS. So absurdity is piled on absurdity.

Then I hear again the cries of ‘climate justice’. Tell me what has climate to do with justice? They are two disparate concepts. Or are they railing against Great Nature? Or worse, do they imagine in their ignorance that mankind can control Great Nature? Well, yes, that is exactly what they do imagine. They imagine that by limiting emissions of Carbon Dioxide into the atmosphere they can control a Global Temperature that does not exist. There is no one Global temperature, but there is a huge range of temperatures constantly changing.  Likewise there is no meaningful ‘average’ temperature – such an animal only exists in the machinations of charlatan scientists with a political agenda to push.

I sometimes write that the Sun is 109 times bigger than the Earth. But the truth is even more dramatic.

To put it simply, the Sun is as big as more than 1 million Earth masses put together. It is 1,287,000 times bigger than a solitary Earth. The Sun has a diameter of 1,392,000 km (865,000 miles) while the Earth’s diameter is only 12,742 km (7,918 miles). In terms of weight, the Sun is 333,000 times heavier than the Earth and accounts for 98% of all mass in the solar system.

From http://planetfacts.org/how-big-is-the-sun-compared-to-the-earth/

Of course the Warmists don’t do the Sun, just as they don’t do clouds. They only do Carbon Dioxide and Fossil Fuels. They mostly don’t even know what Carbon Dioxide is, but rail against all carbon, and they hate fossil fuels with an intensity that borders on insanity. They still believe and even teach that 0.04% of the atmosphere is causing the Globe to warm up. Nothing could be more ridiculous, but they persist. They believe that in repeating their nonsense ad nauseam that it will be believed. Unfortunately they have a point. They have repeated this nonsense so often that even quite intelligent humans are taken in by this hysteria. There are still people that believe that heat can be trapped. Heat can be generated in a variety of ways but heat can never be trapped. For if heat could be trapped we would have no need of fires or central heating, we would have no need of sources of energy – we could trap heat each and every one of us once and for all and that would be that.

The truth is that Great Nature has supplied us with an abundance of fossil fuels, coal, gas and oil. In history the Luddites broke up machinery for fear of losing jobs. Modern Luddites oppose fracking, when fracking could free the United Kingdom, for one, from dependence on foreigners for 70% of their gas. Yet this gas is right beneath our feet, opposed with a vehemence that only total ignorance permits.

Not only is the Sun the major source of energy on this Planet, but also we may be affected by many other constellations in space. I quote from a recent email received:

This region of space contains several super-massive stars that will one day explode as supernovae. Aldebaran, the brightest star in Taurus and only 65 light-years away, has exhausted its hydrogen fuel and will assuredly blow up. It may be within a few thousand or a million years, or it may be tomorrow morning.

So also will Betelgeuse, at 640 light-years, in neighbouring Orion. But its explosion will be dwarfed by that of Eta Carinae in the southern sky. The demise of this star, although 7,500 light-years distant, will be a “hypernova” rather than a supernova on account of its huge mass, 120 times the Sun’s. It could even strip away Earth’s ozone layer, threatening all life.

(in email from Philip Foster 02.02.2015)

What caught my eye was the Hypernova with a mass 120 times that of the Sun! The Warmists seriously contend that a molecule invisible to the naked eye is causing dangerous warming. The only thing that is truly dangerous is this dangerous nonsense.

So dangerous is this because the adherents of this false religion are now calling on children to murder their own fathers if they are sceptical. You don’t believe that? Think again. Some bonehead has done just exactly that to David Rose as he wrote in an article in the Mail on Sunday. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2934540/What-happens-dare-doubt-Green-prophets-doom.html

Why are the Warmists so sickeningly belligerent? Yet David Rose is a lukewarmer, God knows why. He actually also believes that the Earth is warming, but not dangerously. But what is the basis of such a belief? The average temperatures produced by the Goddard Institute or the Climate Research Unit? But David even if we lay aside that these two institutions are driven by noted Warmists, even if we allowed that there is no chicanery in the results they produce, their results are not Global temperatures, are they? Their results are not temperatures of the Atmosphere, which is 62 miles high more or less? No, because what they are measuring is an average of temperatures some 5ft off the ground in louvred boxes.

Such measurements are totally insignificant. We do not have a temperature of the Earth. We do and cannot have a temperature of the atmosphere since it has a thousand temperatures in a constant state of flux. The Warmists have not got the wit to conceive of anything so massively complicated, so they come up with such howlers as the residence time of CO2 in the atmosphere.

For the Warmists the world is static, just as their understanding of the Universe is static. They cannot define the globe, they talk about global warming yet never declare exactly what’s warming, they talk about climate as if there were one static climate, they are so divorced from reality that it is amazing that so many people have been taken in. They are so wrapped up in their self-obsessed guilt that they wish to spew their sickness on everyone else. God forbid!

    [quote name=”JB”]”Some smart bloke wrote that what goes up stays up, referring of course to Carbon Dioxide.”
    I was told at school that carbon dioxide was heavier than air hence it remains close to the ground. At work we were warned that holes in the ground could contain near toxic levels of carbon dioxide.Then I read about Lake Nyas in Africa. Could someone please explain how does carbon dioxide go up and stay up.[/quote]

    It mixes and is carried like every other part of the atmosphere except that green plants and blue green algae take it up, use the carbon to build their structure and release the Oxygen for us to breathe. We then give off CO2, the more CO2 the faster the green plants grow, with greater speed and crop yield, sometimes 30% and more. There is no known “dangerous” level of CO2 for the atmosphere or for life.

    As you say, there is no single temperature for the atmosphere — but in fact, the most important marker for CAGW quite simply has not been observed, in spite of millions of measurements. There are a lot of possible causes that might lead to an average temperature increase of the earth, but the distinguishing indicator that the cause is an increase in CO2 was predicted to be a warm spot in the upper troposphere.

    Even if there were proof of warming, unless the tropospheric warm spot is observed, there is no reason to think that the cause is CO2.

    Let me repeat that: Even if there were proof of warming, unless the tropospheric warm spot is observed, there is no reason to think that the cause is CO2.

      And if there were a Warm Spot, Jason, it would surely rise up and cool! Mind you there are some very hot molecules in the Thermosphere, but they are surrounded by ’empty’ and you cannot heat nothing.

    Actually, the sun is moving into total dormancy. That means the earth will likely
    cool for awhile.
    CO2 is no competition for the sun.

    I thinks it’s amusing when warmists tell us that weather is not climate, and then fail to see the irony in trying to explain climate using instruments that were designed to measure the weather.

    Is that the best he can do, they are not taking the temperature right? The Kosh brothers spent 65 million dollars trying to this prove climate change. CO2 works like glass, lets the heat in, but doesn’t let it out. To get a better idea of that, go sit in your car on a hot day with the windows rolled up. In my own little world, my sister lived up in the Yukon for over 40 years, she said that when she first moved up there they would get 3 months of -40 weather in the winter, when she left, she said that they were lucky to get a week of -40 weather in the winter. In my own home town, which is way farther south, we used to get 3 heavy dumps of snow a winter, now we get 1 heavy dump of snow every 5 to 8 years. Smarter people then this writer have tried to disprove climate change, seems like 97% of the really smart people know it is happening.

            People usually revert to name calling when they run out of intelligent things to say, looks like you ran out real quick. And what does growing grain in Greenland a 1000 years ago have to do with our quick climate change now?

            And it got cooler, we are suppose to be slowly moving into an ice age, which is cause by earth moving away from the sun, and the earth titling more so the north half gets less sun. But it isn’t happening, we are warming up, 2014 is been the warmest year yet……. does this have anything to do with Viking and them growing grain……

            We are in an interglacial, and interglacials warm until the inception of the next ice age faze. It has all happened before.

            The alarmists claim that for the first time in 4,500,000,000 years, natural variability is not the cause. The burden of proof is on you.

            I never knew Lipsky was part of the JP Morgan meltdown, or that he was a ‘one percenter’, and then the utter destruction of Lisa Rich in cross examination was more fun than I have had for days. 😆

            I almost felt sorry for Lipsky, for taking advice from those crooks and liars.
