Climate Scientists Demonstrate Again That they Are Incompetent Zealots

Sep 30, 2014

Scientists are fairly confident that global warming increased the severity and likelihood of extreme heat events in 2013 in Australia, New Zealand, South Korea, Japan, China and Europe.

Blistering heat waves recorded around the globe in 2013 were linked to human-caused global warming, according to a broad survey of studies on extreme weather events published yesterday.

I’m completely confident that these scientists are clueless. The EPA shows that by far the worst heat waves occurred 80 years ago, with CO2 at 310 PPM.

The clearest climate signals emerged in Australia, which is the driest continent on Earth. In 2013, the nation faced its hottest year on record since measurements began in 1910. The year was also exceptionally dry, leading to the colloquial name the Big Dry.

That is total BS. Australia has tons of records from before 1910. January, 1896 was by far the hottest month is Australian history.

Temperatures in Australia plummeted over the next 50 years, as CO2 began to rise.

    It’s pretty obvious that all of these young scientists have been indoctrinated, not educated, over the last couple of decades. They have accepted CAGW as “fact” so now all of their research is done with blinders on and preconceived notions. They disregard any and all historical evidence that refutes the CAGW claims and they view anything out of the ordinary (such as periodic and customary setting of records) as “proof” of their position. The scientific method has been set on its ear by the new generations of “climatologists.”

    • Phil Jones says:

      Right…the root cause of everything is mann-made CO2 induced Global Warming..,

      They act as if these weather occurrences have never happened before… Ignorant of Climate History… Selectively picking data…

    • Phil Jones says:

      Read the comments at the Bottom of this (un) Scientific American…

      Some people get it…

      It’s as if the Author just wanted to write about CACW this week.. Promote the cause… Make himself feel better… Win friends in the break room… Total garbage, not one smidgen of data was provided in the Article,

      • Gail Combs says:

        Don’t forget Phil this was the UN Climate Summit Week in NYC. (un) Scientific American HAD to come out worth some sort of Warmist gobbledegook.

        On the subject of the Climate Summit, China really sticks it to the USA:

        Climate change? China rebuts Obama

        While President Obama challenged China at the United Nations to follow the U.S. lead in pushing for drastic reductions in national carbon emissions to save the planet from “climate change,” it appears that China has dramatically different ideas. As in: no.

        According to a document deposited at the Geneva-based U.N. Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in advance of a planned meeting next month, China…insists that the U.S. and other developed countries endure most of the economic pain of carbon emission cutbacks, and need to make significantly more sacrifices in the months ahead…
        Among other things, the Chinese communist regime insists that the incentive payments it demands must come from “new, additional, adequate, predictable and sustained public funds”
        [read a US carbon tax paid directly to China] – rather than mostly private financing, as the U.S. hopes…

        A promised $100 billion in annual climate financing that Western nations have already pledged to developing countries for carbon emission control and other actions by 2020 is only the “starting point” for additional Western financial commitments that must be laid out in a “clear road map,” which includes “specific targets, timelines and identified sources
        Western countries also need to remove “obstacles such as IPRs [intellectual property rights]” to “promote, facilitate and finance the transfer” of “technologies and know-how” to developing countries in advance of any future climate deals

        Twist the knife a bit more why don’t you. Did I ever mention what I think of Clinton’s dealings with China?

    • omanuel says:

      Indoctrinated over the past seven decades (after WWII) to hide the source of energy that powers nuclear bombs, reactors, stars and galaxies – part of a futile effort to save world leaders and planet Earth from nuclear annihilation.

  2. philjourdan says:

    SciAm is only off by 180 degrees. They said “fairly competent”. It is clear they are “totally incompetent”.

  3. QV says:

    More confirmation bias.

  4. lance says:

    If they can “claim” that the heat was due to GW, then in the same breath, they are going to have to admit that GC hit the USA last winter…..(not holding breath)…

  5. Louis Hooffstetter says:

    Reputable scientists who published in Scientific American when it was a first rate journal must be spinning in their graves.

    From the Scientific American page in Wikipedia:
    “In the fall of 2008, Scientific American was put under the control of Nature Publishing Group.”

  6. Phil Jones says:

    I’m imagining the Parrots falling out of the treed ….

  7. henrythethird says:

    And Australia still holds the record for the longest period of temps of 100 degrees or better: 160 days from 31 Oct 1923 to 7 April 1924 (Marble Bar, W Aus).

    The closest Death Valley could come to that was 154 days in the summer of 2001.

  8. Justa Joe says:

    If you are going to swallow the AGW guff you have to believe that the weather would naturally be pleasant and mild ALL of the time if not for mankind. As if the weather (Gaia) had some kind of contract with humanity that humanity wasn’t abiding by. Ironically the warmists would be leading the charge to bash the intelligent design folks.

    This is one of the first stumbling points for the whole humanist cAGW concept.

  9. Pathway says:

    I’m begining to wonder if CO2 has a moderating effect on climate. Hurricane numbers are down. Tornado numbers are down. NA temperatures are down. Here in the high desert of the upper Colorado Plateau the rainfall is up.

    • emsnews says:

      All the hurricanes are in the Pacific offshore of Mexico. A very few peetered out over the Atlantic Ocean. Now, there are none. This is the quietest hurricane season I have ever seen.

  10. Dave G says:

    Again, we shoud always ask the question… what exactly would the temperatures be right now if we were still at 300ppm CO2…. silence (or just perfect whatever perfect is).

    • mjc says:

      If as a number of folks suspect, there would be little to no difference.

      We know that there is a point, on the low side, where ‘bad things’ start to happen…like plant growth slows down/stops, Also, since water vapor and CO2 have overlapping absorption bands, is there a point, where there isn’t enough water vapor in the atmosphere to overshadow CO2?

      What happens if there is NO CO2 in the atmosphere?

      • Gail Combs says:

        “What happens if there is NO CO2 in the atmosphere?”
        We are all dead and so is most of the rest of the life on this planet.

        So much for CO2 being a pollutant.

        • mjc says:

          Well…there’d be a lot less O2 in the atmosphere, not just nothing to eat.

          But my take on it is that the ‘greenhouse effect’ of CO2 was just enough to allow liquid water…then water took over. And it’s more of a ‘governor’ than a driver.

        • mjc says:

          Water is the ‘governor’…and CO2 is plant food.

  11. omanuel says:

    Zealotry – “the fanatical and uncompromising pursuit of religious, political or other ideals; fanaticism” – will get worse as society spirals into collapse.

    We do not need to decide “Who caused the problem?”

    1. The UN?
    2. The Jews?
    3. The Hindu’s?
    4. The Christians?
    5. The Capitalists?
    6. The Communists?
    7. The USA/UK alliance?
    8. The USSR/China alliance?

    It does not matter who thought they could play God and take totalitarian control of mankind. The empirical fact is just this:

    The Sun is the Creator, Destroyer & Sustainer of every atom, life and world in the Solar System – a volume of space greater than the combined volumes of ten billion, billion Earths !

    The Sun is an ordinary star – one of the seemingly limitless number of stars that fills our seemingly infinite Universe.

    The neutron-rich core of each star is like the nucleus in each living cell of God – The Great Spirit of the Universe that created and endowed us with inalienable rights and still controls our daily lives today.

  12. Andy DC says:

    Who are you going to believe, our leading, cutting edge 21st Century climate scientists or some blokes in the Outback during the 19th Century? Given the relative moral depravity of former, I would pick the blokes every time!

    • Gail Combs says:

      The blokes has no reason to lie. Our leading, cutting edge 21st Century climate scientists on the other hand are paid to lie.

    • Robert B says:

      The measurements were usually taken by the post master in towns. It was the days of very few professionals so it would have been one of the more intelligent members of the community. Temperatures were recorded to the nearest F but would have been instruments capable of measuring to 0.1F. There was a concerted effort to standardise measurements in 1896 so many measurements in major towns were taken in Stevenson Screens. There were temperatures of 4F more than the official highest ever recorded of 123F so you can not discount these because of equipment. No official thermometer has recorded higher since 1960 and automation means that that higher temperatures of short spans would not have been missed as is possible with hourly observations.

  13. stargazer says:

    I have an idea for an experiment concerning the effects of CO2.

    Construct a large closed, sealed, bio-dome, divide it in half. Take all the Anthropogenic Global Whacko scientists and put them in one half of the dome. Put a control group of climate scientist (nonAGWers) in the other half. Suck out all the CO2 in the section holding the AGWers, might want to paint their half of the dome black to block out the sun. (Since the AGWers don’t think the sun has much to do with climate, might include that as part of the experiment.) Push the CO2 in the other half to double, triple… heck 5 times the atmospheric level now measured. Leave both groups for a couple of years. Let both groups of scientists do their experiments showing that CO2 is a bad/good thing. The two groups can then publish their research…..

    Cannibalism is not allowed.

    Debate solved.

  14. Robert B says:

    I used my own Extreme Heat Index earlier in the year to check out the claims about SE Australia. I called it F in honour of Tim Flannery. It was the difference between average summer maximum temperatures (32C) and maximums above this, squared. That is, a 10 C higher temperature is 100 times worse than a 1C higher temperature.

    For Adelaide (witch switched from park land site to amongst buildings in 1979) and Melbourne.

    the sum of these

    This was done before the end of summer this year so the final value should be higher. They show that even the officially recognised temps show that its not getting worse.

  15. Truthseeker says:

    Australia does not have hot summers, we have “angry summers” …

    It is in wikipedia, so it must be true …

    hottest year on record since WE BEGAN ALTERING measurements GOING BACK TO 1910.
