Physicians For Mental Incompetence

Pennsylvania doctor packs an unbelievable amount of bullshit into four short paragraphs

Many have been lulled into a sense of “business as usual” with the cold winter and cool spring we have been experiencing. Nevertheless globally, April tied for being the hottest April ever. What we don’t see can hurt us.

Utter nonsense. Satellite temperatures show that globally, April was close to the median since 1979.

Science, armed by 3000 worldwide ARGO underwater robots constantly measuring ocean temperatures, knows that the planet continues to rapidly warm. It shows  that 97 percent of the heat trapped by the excess greenhouse gasses goes into the oceans. It does cause the water to expand, contributing to sea level rise and to more moisture in the atmosphere. Recent studies show that the warmer oceans are increasing the melting of ice in Antarctica and Greenland from below and they each are on a path to raise sea level by 4 feet.

Sea level is barely rising at the majority of tide gauges.

This heat will also “bite” us, as it is released to the atmosphere by such events as a likely El Niňo. So expect heat waves, droughts, storms, floods and wildfires to be frequent events.

Complete bullshit. Not one shred of evidence to back up any of his claims. All of the things he listed have always been frequent events.

All the respected scientific societies (such as National Academy of Science and the Royal Society) state that the planet is heating, mostly from human causes, and that this is serious and does require action now as many of these gasses remain in the atmosphere thousands of years. Nature will not listen to the denying political talk.

This guy is an embarrassment to the medical profession. The only dangerous gas in the vicinity is the hot air from people like James Jones, M.D.

    Imagine being treated by an imbecile like this one … you’d ‘recover’ real fast … to prevent any further damage to your health.

    • Let’s distill it down:

      The ocean heat will be released to the atmosphere and bite James E. Jones, M.D. in New Cumberland, PA.

      Dr. Jones included the above statement in his recent proclamation. There is no indication that he was provoked and it seems he wrote his letter in a premeditated way, while in possession of a valid Pennsylvania medical license.

    “Many have been lulled into a sense of “business as usual” with the cold winter and cool spring we have been experiencing..”

    Apparently, when it’s supposedly hotter, there’s no “lulling” into being alarmist.

    “Science, armed by 3000 worldwide ARGO underwater robots constantly measuring ocean temperatures, knows that the planet continues to rapidly warm.”

    Wow.. it must be right because 3000 is a big number. It’s pretty dilute considering there’s nearly 400 million sq km of sea surface, and his data is wrong anyway.

    “So expect heat waves, droughts, storms, floods and wildfires to be frequent events”

    They were frequent before; having a poor memory (or simply denying history) doesn’t change reality.

    “All the respected scientific societies (such as National Academy of Science and the Royal Society) state that the planet is heating..”

    Same kind of guys that swore black and blue that the continents didn’t drift.

    “Physicians for Social Responsibility”

    One would hope that social responsibility would exclude making claims of science by consensus; he should already know that from the history of the medical profession.

    Interesting how 97% of the heat is hiding in the ocean … the hide and seek heat must be related to the 97% of the scientists that drank the kool-aid 😉

    • -=NikFromNYC=- says:

      The physical basis of glass thermometers is how liquids like mercury or alcohol expand with raised temperature. It’s not quite the ideal gas law of PV = nRT, but it’s somehow related. I used to wonder about that, how the trapped gas above the liquid might ruin the liquid expansion, by pushing back, hot too. But the ocean is another liquid thermometer, and no, the sky above it isn’t similarly sealed.

        And the sea level has gone down since the highstand during the Holocene Optimum.

        Mid to late Holocene sea-level reconstruction of Southeast Vietnam using beachrock and beach-ridge deposits

        Abstract

        Beachrocks, beach ridge, washover and backshore deposits along the tectonically stable south-eastern Vietnamese coast document Holocene sea level changes. In combination with data from the final marine flooding phase of the incised Mekong River valley, the sea-level history of South Vietnam could be reconstructed for the last 8000 years. Connecting saltmarsh, mangrove and beachrock deposits the record covers the last phase of deglacial sea-level rise from − 5 to + 1.4 m between 8.1 to 6.4 ka. The rates of sea-level rise decreased sharply after the rapid early Holocene rise and stabilized at a rate of 4.5 mm/year between 8.0 and 6.9 ka. Southeast Vietnam beachrocks reveal that the mid-Holocene sea-level highstand slightly above + 1.4 m was reached between 6.7 and 5.0 ka, with a peak value close to + 1.5 m around 6.0 ka….

        Another paper:
        http://www.soest.hawaii.edu/ericg/kap_paper.pdf

        CONCLUSION
        We have constructed a new Holocene sea-level curve for Oahu showing mean sea level higher than today between ~5000 and ~2000 yr ago with a maximum ~2 m above present ca. 3500 yr ago….

        Can’t really fault for Nik not knowing this (after all, he’s not a Physics major), but, when it come to the compressibility of a gas vs that of a liquid, there really is no contest …

    Like profiteering arrest quota cops, so too do Doktors profit off of torturing aged old folk just before they naturally and otherwise peacefully die, into a short half MILLION dollar world of Hell:

    The CPR breaks old folk’s rib cages, “if they do it right.”

    Actual doctors say no.

    No CPR, for *themselves*.

    These doctors should be flogged in public, before that.

  7. Colorado Wellington says:

    True. For me it started in 1965 when a classmate said that a man running like a horse on hind legs is faster and will beat a man running like a man. I found it hard to believe but he was willing to race me.

    He must have been working on perfecting his gait but I got slightly ahead of him anyway. Just before the finish mark the man-horse stepped into some deep mud during one of his galloping steps, nearly fell and finished far behind. When he recovered from the mishap he said his style was faster and better suited to avoiding natural obstacles. What more could I do?

    I debated him.

    • Gail Combs says:

      ERRRrrr, I happen to agree that the “human gallop” is better for avoiding obstacles IF you have a lot of practice. In racing down rocky slopes (with a pack) I could far out distance the rest of the group. All were very fit college age climbers and male.

      There is a hesitation in the pace that allows an easier change of stride for avoiding obstacles and for checking the speed of descent. It is not as fast as a flat out run though.

      One of my favorite past times as a grade schooler was running down the side of a very rocky terminal moraine and being horse mad, the gallop was my favorite gait. Then I got a horse and preceded to run him all over rough terrain. As an adult I graduated to driving a pair to a wagonette over terrain that should have gotten us all killed.

    At Syracuse.com a month or so ago, another doctor who belongs to this group wrote a similar letter. Many debunked the highly politicized and inaccurate alarmist nonsense. Who’s to know when a doctor such as these ones are properly treating patients when they are so highly politicized and wrong?

    • Gail Combs says:

      The doctor at Rochester university’ Strong Menorial Hospital killed my mother by using her without her knowledge or permission in the US governments secret radiation experiments. Worse I baby sat for three doctors in our neighborhood who KNEW what was going on (They called that doctor ‘The Butcher’) but did not tell us.

      That same summer my best friend’s mother died in the same hospital from sepsis caused by a dirty IV needle and my boy friends mother from an incorrect diagnosis of cancer. They put her on chemo when she had a stomach flu and the suppression of her immune system allowed the infection to kill her.

      I have had doctors diagnose me as having
      Scarlet Fever – it was a rash from an allergy
      Diabetes – Midnight raid on the frig
      nervous disorder – bad case of poison ivy

      My husband recently had rocky Mtn Spotted fever diagnosed as a minor stroke “don’t worry about it – nothing to see here move along” This was even though the doctor saw the tick bite a week before, had received the CDC alert on rocky Mtn Spotted fever for NC and my husband was running a fever of 103.

      Do I believe a doctor with out back up information? HECK NO!!!

          Only if you apply it to human physiology … but you still need the MD (medical degree) to be fully omniscient (or, at least thinking so.)

        • Gail Combs says:

          Don’t tell the US government, but I know of vets using vaccines meant for animals on themselves because none were approved for humans and they were at risk of catching the disease.

        • usJim says:

          I think you are missing the humor here Gail, such as the suggestion of becoming omniscient with the addition of the MD. Perhaps you have fallen into this trap too (like the doctors?)

          .

        • Gail Combs says:

          No, I got the humor. I find doctor in general obnoxious.

          Vets, having spent many hours with their arm up a horse’s rear end, (and getting kicked, stomped and otherwise mauled) so are not nearly as obnoxious as doctors. Vets are also used to having to improvise.

          Some old timers, (having good sense) refused to see a doctor preferring the horse doctor instead. (Perhaps you were not aware that Chuck Yeager had his vet treat him before he went on the flight to break the sound barrier. )

        • usJim says:

          A number of us share that same issue that vets are faced with; my ‘patients’ aren’t often able to voice their complaints either, and after a battery of tests even one must go on one’s best guess estimate based on past experience and intimate knowledge of the internal workings of the beast (slang reference to an integrated unit e.g. a complete transceiver) or ‘module’ …

          .

        • Gail Combs says:

          usJim,
          You have it worse than a vet. At least animals bleed and will indicate where the pain is even if they can not talk English. You just have to be able to ‘hear’ what they are telling you. After horses, cows, sheep and goats, dogs are super easy to understand.

        • usJim says:

          Gail, the nice thing about living tissue and organisms is, given proper circumstances (rectify the original problem) they can ‘heal’ (get better) by themselves … a run of tower-top amplifiers, not so much.

          .

    • At Syracuse.com a month or so ago, another doctor who belongs to this group wrote a similar letter.

      The proper authorities should pay attention to their writings. We’ve learned from Santa Barbara and similar cases that these warning signs must not be ignored.

    I am not really too concerned,

    • PJ London says:

      Sorry, I entered it as a table but it got reformatted.
      Expansion between 5C and 35c = 1% with sea temps at 35c, we might have more serious problems that expansion.

  12. Bob Johnston says:

    Doctors are the worst. They’re generally smart which leads them to believe their shit doesn’t stink and highly susceptible to major cases of cognitive dissonance. They’ve been trained to manage symptoms with drugs rather than actually curing the underlying disease and it doesn’t help that the diet heart hypothesis is the medical equivalent of CAGW.

    I would go see a doctor if I needed a broken bone set or a wound stitched up but I don’t believe they have a clue when it comes to chronic disease.

    • Gail Combs says:

      +1

      A very good doctor told me when I was young that doctors, at least at that time, were not required to take a single nutrition course.

      For example a doctor rather hand out antihypertensives for high blood pressure rather then try diet changes first even though that is the recommendation from the Mayo Clinic. Of course a lot of that is the fault of the patient. They do not take a real interest in their health and insist on knowing all the options. They just want a pill to fix it. In return the doctor does not trust the patient and figures a pill is easier than a life style change.

      I had a doctor recommend back surgery once, he was very surprise when I asked him what would happen if I did not have surgery. He told me my back would heal on its own in about seven years if I could put up with the pain. Another doctor I consulted had told me if I did have surgery, because I was very active in sports, I would be looking at more surgery 10 years down the road because the fusion of the disks would put additional strain above and below the original injury. I put up with the pain and the back did heal on its own reasonably well. That was 35 years ago.

      With the internet there is now plenty of information out there including peer-reviewed studies and given Obummercare, you are a fool if you do not spend a few hours figuring out the best life style/diet for your health.

        Agreed. I spend an inordinate amount of time following the CAGW debate but I bet I spend double that amount of time following nutrition and health. So many of the things we think we know about nutrition are so wrong and so baseless of good science practice it really blows my mind. The 50 years we’ve wasted demonizing cholesterol and the money (trillions?) we’ve spent on drugs that are ineffective at best and life threatening at worst just saddens me.

        CAGW alarmism is bad, our conventional wisdom in health and nutrition is worse.

        • Gail Combs says:

          Agreed. I did not spend the time that you have but enough to change my live style and nutritional habits. I now feel better at 60+ then I did at 40.
