    Excellent – thanks for posting this!

    I think I’d liked to have heard more about the 2 degrees limit that is mentioned in Paris and how close we are to that measured from when?

  3. Henry P says:

    You should look at the climate in multiples of
    Schwabe cycles (11 year)
    Hale – Nicholson (22 yrs)
    Gleissberg (87 years)
    De Vries (210 years)
    These are things that were not discussed at the hearing, but this is crucial to understanding climate change.

    Note tables II and III which strongly support the 87 year cycle observable from the sun’s temp. effected on earth [that which is coming through the atmosphere]

      Both sides in the climate debate simply ignore this empirical fact: The Sun is the Creator & Sustainer of every atom, life and planet in the solar system !

      After watching the entire debate, I am convinced the AGW debate cannot be won if AGW doubters accept the false premise of AGW believers: The Sun is NOT the Creator & Sustainer of every atom, life and planet in the solar system !

      Climatology has too many uncertainties and too few (yes/no) issues. E.g.,
      _ a.) Does interstellar hydrogen collapse into stars, or
      _ b.) Do stars make and discard hydrogen to interstellar space?

    Every time someone says 97% of scientist agree I LOL.
    It is a thin excuse for not thinking!

    • 97% of snake oil salesmen say it can cure cancer

      • OrganicFool says:

        Interesting that at one time snake oil was considered a curative and is still used in parts of the world.

        It has many of the same qualities as fish oils, such as cod liver oil and contains essential fatty acids EPA, arachadonic and linolenic. The Inuits ingest seal oil and dip meats in the oil to help preserve it and add fat. It’s why we should eat sea food and fish on a regular basis. Animal fats have many healing and nutritive properties, now demonized by the AGW world. They want us all to eat soy.

        Many fish oils and Omega-3s have actually shown to cause harm and contribute to cancer and heart disease. This is most likely because they are rancid through the distillation, bleaching and deodorizing process, or exposure to heat and light.

        Omega-3s are fragile because they are polyunsaturated. Raw snake oil would actually be a safer form!

    Excellent! see Cruz @ 1:28:45-1:29:20

  6. lectrikdog says:

    Near the end Titley says “We built human civilization based on (a time period of) climate stability.”
    Since when has the climate ever been stable or unchanging? In his time period we have 1) the ice age Aleutian land bridge across which countless Asians migrated to N & S American continents; 2) the end of the ice age when sea levels rose dramatically; 3)Vikings settling and leaving Greenland; 4)Roman Warm Period; 5)Medieval Warm; 6)Maunder Minimum; 7)Dalton Minimum; 8)Modern Maximum; and etc.(I may have left some things out), But this doesn’t look to me like Climate Stability, Mr. Titley.

  7. gofer says:

    IPCC chief:

    “Multiple lines of evidence SUGGEST the earth is warming.”

    Now that is a statement of real confidence.

  8. OrganicFool says:

    Adm. Titley: “We only have one planet.”

    Earth-centric solar system once again? And they compare themselves to Galileo?

    Climate change is happening on many planets and moons.

    Minute changes in the sun don’t affect climate, but minute increase in CO2 does? CO2 at .0004 atmosphere up from .0003 is more powerful than the sun. Makes total sense.

    • I worry about the preparedness of the U.S. Navy when I see a political careerist like Rear Admiral Titley being promoted as a ”nationally known expert in the field of climate, the Arctic, and National Security. [emphasis mine]

      One has to only go back to the run up to Pearl Harbor to start feeling bad. Adm. Richardson, a real Japanese warfare expert, protested FDR’s order to deploy the Pacific Fleet from San Diego to Pearl Harbor because he knew it was indefensible at the time. When FDR fired him as the Commander in Chief of the U.S. Fleet, he was “demoted” to Rear Admiral and replaced by Adm. Kimmel. After the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor proved Richardson right, the Navy—and the country—had the good luck that another competent Rear Admiral was ready to fight the War against Japan: Chester Nimitz.

      I hope we have some competent Rear Admirals waiting in the wings today. I’m sure the climate racket pays Titley well but as a security expert he’s as useful as tits on a bull.

    I was disappointed that during the hearing this graph wasn’t used:
    http://dailycaller.com/2015/06/15/americas-most-advanced-climate-station-data-shows-us-in-a-10-year-cooling-trend/

    I believe that graph that Cruz used shows satellite data showing no warming has actually been adjusted to to show no warming, if it were un-adjusted then it would also show cooling, yes?

    • AndyG55 says:

      Actually Sam.. because of the recent El Nino, trend has changes slightly.

      Updated to November, the trend is +0094ºF/year.

      ClimDiv has a trend over that period of -0.0135ºF/year

      These are , of course, indistinguishable from ZERO TREND.

      ie, US temperatures are remarkable stable. almost unprecedentedly stable. 😉

      • AndyG55 says:

        On that note.. I have a theory, born out by many data, and a bottle of red………

        ….. . adding CO2 to the atmosphere STABILISES the atmosphere.

        I mean, look at Venus… not much change day or night ..

        CHEERS all !! 🙂
