Alarmists Finding New Ways To Spin The Catastrophic Failure Of Climate Models

This MIT article admits that Mann-made global warming is BS, then goes on to spin even more BS to make it sound like that isn’t want they are really saying.

This is the only sentence in the article which has any substance.

Will we actually ever see the longwave trapping effects of CO2 in future observations? I think the answer is probably no.”

They can’t leave it at that, so they go on with paragraphs of BS to make it sound like they are saying something completely different. This one is the punch line.

As longwave radiation gets trapped by CO2, the Earth starts to warm, impacting various parts of the climate system. Sea ice and snow cover melt, turning brilliant white reflectors of sunlight into darker spots.

These geniuses just contradicted their entire thesis about longwave radiation (not) being trapped by CO2. Not to mention the fact that the amount of sea ice on Earth is above normal, and that winter snow extent has been increasing and is at record highs.

The takeaway from the article is that the authors believe that Mann-made global warming is nonsense, but can’t say it for political reasons.

    This is Science? And from MIT no less.

    ….The Earth absorbs incoming visible light from the sun, called “shortwave radiation,” and emits infrared light, or “longwave radiation,” into space…..

    What happened to the rest of the spectrum? Visible is only a small part.

    …spent many a late night throwing out guesses as to why climate models generate this illogical finding before realizing that it makes perfect sense…..

    Why the heck are they bothering with models instead of looking at field data?

    They found the answer by drawing on both computer simulations and a simple energy-balance model. As longwave radiation gets trapped by CO2, the Earth starts to warm, impacting various parts of the climate system. Sea ice and snow cover melt, turning brilliant white reflectors of sunlight into darker spots. The atmosphere grows moister because warmer air can hold more water vapor, which absorbs more shortwave radiation. Both of these feedbacks lessen the amount of shortwave radiation that bounces back into space, and the planet warms rapidly at the surface.

    Got that wrong too. Not only is sea ice especially in the Antarctic increasing but they again leave out UV and Ozone and more important the effect they have on the location of the Jet Stream.

    The study sorts out another tricky climate-modeling issue — namely, the substantial disagreement between different models in when shortwave radiation takes over the heavy lifting in global warming. The authors demonstrate that the source of the differences lies in the way in which a model represents changes in cloud cover with global warming, another big factor in how well Earth can reflect shortwave solar energy.

    Again this is NOT about what the real world data is saying but about what the MODELS are saying.

    This would barely get a C- in a high school general science class.

    “While this study does not change our understanding of the fundamentals of global warming, it is always useful to have simpler models that help us understand why our more comprehensive climate models sometimes behave in superficially counterintuitive ways”

    At least the scamsters have good reason to feel sorry for themselves when they take note of reality 😉

    I find it utterly, completely incomprehensible that the most important greenhouse gas — water vapor — is NEVER mentioned in such analyses! My understanding is that not only does it absorb more LIR energy molecule for molecule, but that it exists in the atmosphere at 25- to 100-fold the concentration of CO2. Yet, CO2 is apparently the ONLY greenhouse gas that counts for anything. And only 4% of that is due to human activity.

    I’m missing something, I’m sure…

      The Climastrologists get that high CO2 climate sensitivity by making water a FEEDBACK of CO2 and therefore multiplying the actual CO2 climate sensitivity threefold. This is the heart of the BIG LIE. They swap cause and effect.

      From NASA:

      …. “Everyone agrees that if you add carbon dioxide to the atmosphere, then warming will result,” Dessler said. “So the real question is, how much warming?”

      The answer can be found by estimating the magnitude of water vapor feedback. Increasing water vapor leads to warmer temperatures, which causes more water vapor to be absorbed into the air. Warming and water absorption increase in a spiraling cycle….

      No Mr. Dessler, not everyone agrees. MA Nature disagrees and she trumps all your cards.
      Water (ocean temperature) drives CO2 as seen by the known few hundred year lag in the ice records. Instead the scammers are saying CO2 increased DRIVES water vapor increases and dance around the fact CO2 levels FOLLOW the ocean temperature increases.

      The present day data shows the lie too. CO2 has steadily increased according to Climastrologists, while NASA satellite data shows a decline in water vapor

      NOAA Atmospheric Specific Humidity Graph. also shows a decline.

      And Albedo declined until 1998 when it started increasing and the global temperature went flat.

    I have saved up a series of Climate posts to re-post and they are all good and should be read. I will be putting this same message in all of them to save time.
