Stop Whining About Wine

Stanford is getting lots of publicity about their claims that Napa wine is doomed due to global warming – but their computer model “does not compute.” Napa maximum temperatures showed no sensitivity to the last 80 ppm of CO2, and there is no reason to believe they will behave differently for the next 80.

California has a huge body of very cold water offshore which regulates the temperature. One might expect that people at Stanford would be aware of that fact.

    YOU ARE KIDDING! RIGHT?
    Wannabe scientists at Stanford aware of facts? Probably the chemical composition of their favorite designer meds! The rest is make believe and it is a Travesty. Or was it that they need to be either effective or honest and they chose option one?

    they did forget…, they are running there models and forgot to look outside!
    Actual evidence is not necessary when you have robust models.

    It is more complicated. When hordes of pikas, climate refugees from the high Sierras, are forced to wander in their desperate search for sustenance, they will become a serious pest in the vinyards with predictable results on the quantity and quality of wine production.

    This will become worse as temperatures skyrocket.

    Having worked in and around higher education most of my life, I have developed a maxim that holds true. Once you reach PhD level, your learning stops and your stupid starts.

    Spazism:

    Partisanship is the wooly merit of fair weather fags, and “early retirement” armchair amusement choirs.

    GO OUTSIDE

    Report on that.

    Tell *stories*.

    Facts don’t affect?!

    Don’t circle jerk fuck yourself over, forever.

    Forgotten fools.

    Nothing here is ventured.

    I duly note,

    Patting each other’s back.

    That’s not social science.

    It’s bad steak sauce.

    The aerosols are saving the wine industry and the ski industry. Maybe they aren’t so evil after all. But they can never stop global weirding.

    Stanford aren’t interested in the past, nor in local conditions; they’re interested only in projected global averages, and extrapolating that locally. ie, the usual crackpot alarmists.

    Chincken Little was true story. Honest. He had a PhD too.
