36000 Physicists Say “No” To Climate Miscreants

From Aus, Andrew Bolt states that AGW is the greatest scientific scandal of our lifetime Institute of Physics damns the Climategaters’ “science”.

However, Al Gore, Nobel Prize winner and inventor of the internet is still breathing I expect. What is Al Gore inventing now? Providence only knows.

AGW was never science. AGW was always statist fantasy. 36000 Physicists have said “no” to statist fantasy. That is using a shotgun to kill a roach, scientifically speaking. Why it took so long? Now you have me.

2. The CRU e-mails as published on the internet provide prima facie evidence of determined and co-ordinated refusals to comply with honourable scientific traditions and freedom of information law. The principle that scientists should be willing to expose their ideas and results to independent testing and replication by others, which requires the open exchange of data, procedures and materials, is vital…

3. It is important to recognise that there are two completely different categories of data set that are involved in the CRU e-mail exchanges:

· those compiled from direct instrumental measurements of land and ocean surface temperatures such as the CRU, GISS and NOAA data sets; and

· historic temperature reconstructions from measurements of ‘proxies’, for example, tree-rings.

4. The second category relating to proxy reconstructions are the basis for the conclusion that 20th century warming is unprecedented. Published reconstructions may represent only a part of the raw data available and may be sensitive to the choices made and the statistical techniques used. Different choices, omissions or statistical processes may lead to different conclusions. This possibility was evidently the reason behind some of the (rejected) requests for further information.

5. The e-mails reveal doubts as to the reliability of some of the reconstructions and raise questions as to the way in which they have been represented; for example, the apparent suppression, in graphics widely used by the IPCC, of proxy results for recent decades that do not agree with contemporary instrumental temperature measurements.

6. There is also reason for concern at the intolerance to challenge displayed in the e-mails. This impedes the process of scientific ‘self correction’, which is vital to the integrity of the scientific process as a whole, and not just to the research itself. In that context, those CRU e-mails relating to the peer-review process suggest a need for a review of its adequacy and objectivity as practised in this field and its potential vulnerability to bias or manipulation.

7. Fundamentally, we consider it should be inappropriate for the verification of the integrity of the scientific process to depend on appeals to Freedom of Information legislation. Nevertheless, the right to such appeals has been shown to be necessary. The e-mails illustrate the possibility of networks of like-minded researchers effectively excluding newcomers…

Sea Level NOT Rising (2)

Excellent story here from the excellent site Ice Age Now

Another IPCC Scandal – Sea levels NOT rising
 

According to expert reviewer for the IPCC 

26 Feb 10 – Dr Nils-Axel Mörner, geologist, physicist, and one-time expert reviewer for the IPCC, announced this week that, contrary to IPCC claims, sea levels are not rising.

“Sea level is not changing in any way, ” said Dr Mörner in an hour-long interview with Kim Greenhouse of “It’s Rainmaking Time.”

Dr. Mörner, who received his PhD in geology in 1969, is one of the greatest – if not the greatest – experts on sea levels in the world today. He has worked with sea level problems for 40 years in areas scattered all over the globe

There is no change, says Mörner. There is absolutely no sea-level rise in Tuvalo, there is no change here, and there is zero sea-level rise in Bangladesh. If anything, sea levels have lowered in Bangladesh.

We do not need to fear sea-level rise, says Mörner. However, “we should have a fear of those people who fooled us.”

Moscow Record Snow

The 1966 snowfall record in Moscow is shattered.

Government can satisfy a narrow purpose; forecasting climate is explicitly not included. Providing health care and financing mortgages are other significant and perpetual government failures.

The bigger the government, the narrower the purpose potentially satisifed.

My prediction is next summer in Moscow will not be very warm. The year after next will be colder still. This is a better prediction than you can possibly get from all government, any government.

This is not true at all because you got if from me for nothing; compared to whatever you pay to government.

Useful climate predictions, healthcare, education, home mortgages, and energy resources are not obtained from government. Government cannot produce anything.

Record snow fall blankets Russian capital

Russians may have scoffed at what US President Barack Obama called “snowmageddon” earlier this month on his country”s east coast, but now Muscovites have been stunned by a snow fall that has broken their own 1966 record.

Four days of blizzards dumped 67 centimeters (26 inches) across the Russian capital by Tuesday, breaking the Feb record of 64 cm experienced at the height of the Cold War 44 years ago, and much more is expected this week, the Moscow weather bureau said.

Sea Level No Longer Rising

Scientists have been forced to withdraw a study on projected sea level rise due to global warming after finding mistakes that undermined the findings.

Climate scientists withdraw journal claims of rising sea levels

The bastards have been forced – I’d say that captures the moment. They resisted, valiantly, to preserve the lie as long as they possibly could, and to “hide the decline.” But the lie is over.

Even noble climate scientists must acquiesce to the truth, eventually. But is this their end? What further ignominy awaits them?

Justifiable legal charges of fratricide, I’d say. Given that vast economic waste could have been usefully devoted to dealing constructively with historically documentable circumstances including perioidic global little ice ages. Next, the noble climate scientists will comprise an endangered species, requiring a new government legal defense fund.

For fraudsters, there is no end of financial opportunity. One fraud feeds on another.

How Unusual Is The Current Minimum?

The current solar minimum is very unusual, at least in the history of our ability to observe solar magnetism closely. But evidence is clear to those who are concerned – similar events have had mortal significance far into the past.

Russ Steele “Dalton Minimum Returns” has been cautioning Americans about the dangers of periodic solar minima since 2006.

The story is here: Dalton Minimum Return Gaining Attention

The HOT area of science is no longer phoney, useless greenhouse models!

You can find the real science in detail here.

“Sun’s open magnetic flux is lower now than at any time during the space age.”

I think “far lower,” though, from the video, is appropriate.

Periodically, solar minima have resulted in human misery, hunger, and death. Those who forget history are truly doomed.

Missing: Al Gore

Al Gore has made himself scarce this winter.

But never fear. Public education is still pushing Gore’s snake oil in “An Inconvenient Truth.”

Our children are being indoctrinated in the greatest pack of lies since Lenin. Himalayan glaciers disappearing, indeed.

Americans need more energy, and cheaper energy, if only to stay warm.

Warm is good.
