Just how credible are these climate models?

6 Nov

They’re Not

In other words, over the past third of a century—the period with the greatest amount of anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions—the behavior of the real world (i.e., reality) falls far below the average expectation of climate models and, in fact, is clearly inconsistent with the range of model results. Less than 2.5 percent of model runs show that global warming is really global luke warming to the degree that real-world observations indicate.

Basically, the models don’t work.

This reality ought to be enough to stop the anti-fossil fuel (via carbon dioxide emission restrictions) crusaders in their tracks.

But it won’t…

Alarmist – in – Chief

Back after a little time off – I managed to let the “Shutdown”, the “NSA” the “Defund” and even the “Obamascare” go by without comment- all of which are classic progressive communist debacles. Now this…

Obama orders government to prepare for impact of global warming

“The question is not whether we need to act,” Mr. Obama said at the time. “The question is whether we will have the courage to act before it’s too late.”

Meanwhile…

Inside China: Nuclear submarines capable of widespread attack on U.S.

Chinese calculations for nuclear attacks on the U.S. are chillingly macabre.

“Because the Midwest states of the U.S. are sparsely populated, in order to increase the lethality, [our] nuclear attacks should mainly target the key cities on the West Coast of the United States, such as Seattle, Los Angeles, San Francisco and San Diego,” the Global Times said.

Obama will deal with the Chinese threat, as soon as he fixes the Internet….

Oh Noes…Kinder Morgan’s Oil Spill Cover Up…Wait…What?

Activists are outraged… A way of Life Ruined…

Oh the humanity… the land will “never” recover!

These guys won’t make it to the big leagues of eco-facism until they learn photo-shop…

I wasn’t prepared for what I saw. The top of the Coquihalla Summit is the highest point of any pipeline in Canada. From the that point near the Summit, the pipeline descends over three hundred metres vertically in a very short distance. The age of the pipe and the steepness of the descent would surely increase the likelihood of a major spill,” said Hale.

Citing himself as an authority…Show me the bodies.

These guys are anti-oil and anti-enterprise – pipelines are the safest, cleanest and most environmentally sensitive way to move the petro-products that are used to make the iPhones and Macs they use to send this drivel.

Climate “Social Cost” Model – ‘close to useless’

13 Aug

When You Lose The MIT Liberal …

A plethora of integrated assessment models (IAMs) have been constructed and used to estimate the social cost of carbon (SCC) and evaluate alternative abatement policies. These models have crucial flaws that make them close to useless as tools for policy analysis: certain inputs (e.g. the discount rate) are arbitrary, but have huge effects on the SCC estimates the models produce; the models’ descriptions of the impact of climate change are completely ad hoc, with no theoretical or empirical foundation; and the models can tell us nothing about the most important driver of the SCC, the possibility of a catastrophic climate outcome. IAM-based analyses of climate policy create a perception of knowledge and precision, but that perception is illusory and misleading

Meanwhile…somewhat related

if one looks only at pristine stations, they show a temperature increase of 1.1° Fahrenheit over the years 1979 to 2008. That is noticeably lower than the government estimate of 1.7° Fahrenheit,

But I thought “moderate Muslims” were the majority?

10 Jun

Canada’s 18 Moderate Muslims…

I’ve personally seen hundreds, even thousands, of not-so-moderate Muslims assembled on the streets of Toronto, again and again and again. So have you.

But this was the biggest number of “moderates” this event could attract, despite being advertised widely on social media.

According to one attendee on Sunday, an organizer gave him the usual “excuse”:

That there are hundreds, even thousands of “moderate Muslims” in the Toronto area, but they are “afraid of being photographed and intimidated.”

Or in the words of the current Turkish Prime Minister…

First of all, the ‘moderate Islam’ concept is wrong. The word ‘Islam’ is a simple word — it is only Islam. If you say ‘moderate Islam,’ then an alternative is created.”

If there is no alternative, there is only one solution.

Ethical Oil – Fueling the Obama Economy

29 May

Oil companies paid the most in taxes

… last year Exxon and Chevron ranked in the top two companies that paid the most in taxes. ConocoPhillips ranked sixth in terms of taxes paid, reports USA Today. In 2012, Exxon paid $31.05 billion, Chevron paid $20 billion, and ConocoPhillips paid $7.94 billion.

“The oil and gas industry gets no subsidies, zero, nothing,” said Jack Gerard, president and CEO of the American Petroleum Institute — the nation’s largest oil and gas lobby. “We get cost-recovery benefits, much like other industries. You can go down the road of allowing economic activity, generating hundreds of billions to the government, or you can take the alternative route by trying to extract new revenue from industry by increasing their cost to do business.”

Meanwhile…

In fact, the big three oil companies paid multiples more, in both total dollars and effective tax rates, than such administration favorites as Apple, Google and General Electric.

What the F*ck is Up With the Jews at Great Neck?

10 Apr

Freedom of Speech is a Figure of Speech

As the notoriety and media exposure of the planned program this Sunday have increased, so has the legal liability and potential security exposure of our institution and it’s [sic] member families. In an era of heightened security concerns it is irresponsible to jeopardize the safety of those who call Great Neck Synagogue home, especially our children, even at the risk of diverting attention from a potentially important voice in the ongoing debate. Accordingly, the Great Neck Synagogue Men’s Club will no longer be sponsoring the appearance of Pamela Geller this coming Sunday, and no event will be taking place in our facility.

News Flash Jews – the Islamists hate you and would like to “cleanse” the world of  your entire religion…then they’ll come for the rest of us.

it could never happen here…

“I’ve grown old waiting for the promised global warming”

Global Warming: Was It Just A Beautiful Dream After All?

So where’s the warming? Where are the gondolas pulling up to the Capitol? Where are the encroaching seas in Florida? Or anywhere? Where is the climate change which, for 33 years, has been just around the corner?

A generation and a half into climate change, née global warming, you can’t point to a single place on earth where the weather is noticeably different from what it was in 1979. Or 1879, for that matter.

… maybe it was a huge left wing conspiracy…

Guess Who Pays For Green Energy…

Relax , Your Electric Meter is Working Perfectly

In addition to the political gains, it was not lost on the Liberals that the “caring” about the environment was a great way to raise revenue through increased taxes and fees — and they went about saving the planet by raising revenue with a zeal usually reserved for parties on left.

The fly in the ointment, of course, is that the entire premise of climate change is based on the demonstrably false hypothesis that increased CO2 in the atmosphere raises global temperatures. B.C.’s hydroelectricity produces no CO2. Increased use of B.C. hydropower cannot “contribute to climate change.”

Global Cooling – We Are So Screwed…

3 Apr

Global Cooling – Methods and Testable Decadal Predictions…

  1.  Significant temperature drop at about 2016-17
  2.  Possible unusual cold snap 2021-22
  3.  Built in cooling trend until  at least 2024
  4.  Temperature Hadsst3 moving average anomaly 2035  – 0.15
  5.  Temperature Hadsst3 moving average anomaly 2100  – 0.5
  6.  General Conclusion – by 2100 all the 20th century temperature rise will have been reversed,
  7.  By 2650  earth could possibly be back to the depths of the little ice age.
  8.  The effect of increasing CO2 emissions will be minor but beneficial  – they may slightly ameliorate the forecast cooling and help maintain crop yields .
  9. Warning !!  There are some signs in the Livingston and Penn Solar data that a sudden drop to the Maunder Minimum Little Ice Age temperatures could be imminent – with a much more rapid and economically disruptive cooling than that forecast above which may turn out to be a best case scenario.

Good thing we have all that wind power and pixie dust to keep us warm…
