Climatic Change is Not a Problem of the Future

The diagnosis of the future of the planet cannot be gloomier. To the numerous elements that damage the environment, we must now add others, like the direct consequences of turning food into fuel, established as the economic policy guideline of the United States, designed and defended at all costs by the US president.

The issue has been presented on many occasions as a warning of the potential danger that, if continued, will affect the indispensable conditions for the life on the planet. Evidently at the service of the large transnationals, which produce 25 percent of the contaminating gas emissions, the White House has justified its position and has systematically refused to sign the Kyoto Protocol.

The inhabitants of the planet are required to act urgently. Maybe it's not too late.

That article does not debunk the Great Global Warming Swindle. Not even remotely...

The Science in The Great Global Warming Swindle (Fred Singer, Ph.D. Physics, Princeton University)
http://www.independent.org/newsroom/article.asp?id=1945

"The scientific arguments presented in The Great Global Warming Swindle can be stated quite briefly:

1. There is no proof that the current warming is caused by the rise of greenhouse gases from human activity. Ice core records from the past 650,000 years show that temperature increases have preceded—not resulted from—increases in CO2 by hundreds of years, suggesting that the warming of the oceans is an important source of the rise in atmospheric CO2. As the dominant greenhouse gas, water vapor is far, far more important than CO2. Dire predictions of future warming are based almost entirely on computer climate models, yet these models do not accurately understand the role or water vapor—and, in any case, water vapor is not within our control. Plus, computer models cannot account for the observed cooling of much of the past century (1940–75), nor for the observed patterns of warming—what we call the “fingerprints.” For example, the Antarctic is cooling while models predict warming. And where the models call for the middle atmosphere to warm faster than the surface, the observations show the exact opposite.

The best evidence supporting natural causes of temperature fluctuations are the changes in cloudiness, which correspond strongly with regular variations in solar activity. The current warming is likely part of a natural cycle of climate warming and cooling that’s been traced back almost a million years. It accounts for the Medieval Warm Period around 1100 A.D., when the Vikings settled Greenland and grew crops, and the Little Ice Age, from about 1400 to 1850 A.D., which brought severe winters and cold summers to Europe, with failed harvests, starvation, disease, and general misery. Attempts have been made to claim that the current warming is “unusual” using spurious analysis of tree rings and other proxy data. Advocates have tried to deny the existence of these historic climate swings and claim that the current warming is "unusual" by using spurious analysis of tree rings and other proxy data, resulting in the famous “hockey–stick” temperature graph. The hockey-stick graph has now been thoroughly discredited.

2. If the cause of warming is mostly natural, then there is little we can do about it. We cannot control the inconstant sun, the likely origin of most climate variability. None of the schemes for greenhouse gas reduction currently bandied about will do any good; they are all irrelevant, useless, and wildly expensive:
Control of CO2 emissions, whether by rationing or elaborate cap–and–trade schemes
Uneconomic “alternative” energy, such as ethanol and the impractical “hydrogen economy”
Massive installations of wind turbines and solar collectors
Proposed projects for the sequestration of CO2 from smokestacks or even from the atmosphere

Ironically, even if CO2 were responsible for the observed warming trend, all these schemes would be ineffective—unless we could persuade every nation, including China, to cut fuel use by 80 percent!

3. Finally, no one can show that a warmer climate would produce negative impacts overall. The much–feared rise in sea levels does not seem to depend on short–term temperature changes, as the rate of sea–level increases has been steady since the last ice age, 10,000 years ago. In fact, many economists argue that the opposite is more likely—that warming produces a net benefit, that it increases incomes and standards of living. Why do we assume that the present climate is the optimum? Surely, the chance of this must be vanishingly small, and the economic history of past climate warmings bear this out.

But the main message of The Great Global Warming Swindle is much broader. Why should we devote our scarce resources to what is essentially a non–problem, and ignore the real problems the world faces: hunger, disease, denial of human rights—not to mention the threats of terrorism and nuclear wars? And are we really prepared to deal with natural disasters; pandemics that can wipe out most of the human race, or even the impact of an asteroid, such as the one that wiped out the dinosaurs? Yet politicians and the elites throughout much of the world prefer to squander our limited resources to fashionable issues, rather than concentrate on real problems. Just consider the scary predictions emanating from supposedly responsible world figures: the chief scientist of Great Britain tells us that unless we insulate our houses and use more efficient light bulbs, the Antarctic will be the only habitable continent by 2100, with a few surviving breeding couples propagating the human race. Seriously!"

Swindle and Mid-20th Century Cooling (Climate Audit)
http://www.climateaudit.org/?p=1266

"Their data derived from a Hansen version, but the graphic artist made a plotting error in the horizontal axis which had the effect of dilating the second half of the second 20th century. They say that they corrected the graphic for the 2nd screening and sent me a copy of the new graphic, which reconciles to a Hansen version."


Debate hots up over climate-change dissidents (The Guardian)
http://environment.guardian.co.uk/climatechange/story/0,,2033170,00.html

"With regard to reports that one contributor says he was "misled" by the programme and "misrepresented" within it, Channel 4 has a detailed correspondence which shows this is not the case. The view that Professor Egil Friss-Cristensen, head of the Danish Space Centre, "incorrectly handled data" and used "faulty methods" in his research is contested in his response, and he has demonstrated a good correlation between solar-cycle length and temperature. Professor John Christy, head of the Earth System Science Centre at the University of Alabama, also disputes the claim that he has been "proved wrong", and his most recent (2005) data on the heating of the lower atmosphere have not been challenged. There were many other voices in the film that present a powerful argument."


Move to block emissions 'swindle' DVD (The Guardian)
http://environment.guardian.co.uk/climatechange/story/0,,2064925,00.html

"This contemptible attempt at gagging won't work. The reason they want to suppress The Great Global Warming Swindle is because the science has stung them. By comparison look at the mountains of absurd nonsense pedalled in the name of 'manmade climate change'. Too many scientists have staked their reputations and built their careers on global warming. There's a lot riding on this ridiculous theory. The DVD will be on sale shortly at a shop near you."


C4 accused of falsifying data in documentary on climate change
http://news.independent.co.uk/media/article2521677.ece

"In the course of translating complex data to a stylised television graphic, an inadvertent error occurred in the short sequence of data of solar activity between 1625 and 1700. This point of detail has been rectified for future transmissions. It does not affect the argument of the film."


Addendum by Eigil Friis-Christensen (Eigil Friis-Christensen, Director of the Danish National Space Center)
http://folk.uio.no/nathan/web/statement_bak.html

"Alternatively, this could indicate that solar cycle length is not (as is the case for the sunspot number) a perfect descriptor of solar activity associated with climate."

"The last sentence above illustrates the dilemma for the physicist and the limitations of correlation analyses. For a physicist a break down of a correlation where you would expect one is just as – or sometimes even more - informative as a good correlation when it comes to the ultimate goal, which is to understand the physics. Climatologists are more concerned whether the observations fit their preconceived model and prefer to describe solar activity by one single parameter. But solar activity can not be described by a single number. There are many different manifestations of the turbulent and 3-dimensional distribution of energy release from the Sun, and for a physicist the real challenge is to find those parameters of solar activity that best correlate with climate in order to provide a clue regarding the exact physical mechanism that could be responsible for a cause and effect relationship. The present case illustrates how science works. In 1997 the results of a parallel line of research indicated a more direct physical link between solar activity and climate (Svensmark and Friis-Christensen, 1997 [Journ. Atm. Sol. Terr. Phys., 59:1225-32]). This result was later refined with more and better observations and documented that during the last two solar cycles there is a very good correlation between the solar modulation of the cosmic rays and the low altitude cloud cover (Marsh and Svensmark, 2000 [Space Science Review, 94: 215-30]). So therefore, and in spite of the fact that the solar cycle length seemed not to explain the most recent temperature increase after 1985, solar variations still do have direct effect on important climate parameters. How large this effect may be on the global temperature is currently being investigated, and is outside the scope of this comment. But there is no reason to neglect a contribution from man made greenhouse gases. The question is how much. Only increased understanding of the physical processes can give us the answer."


Swindle and the Stick (Climate Audit)
http://www.climateaudit.org/?p=1542

"The Swindle complainants should be careful what they ask for. If Durkin had to re-do the section on the Stick, he might well come up with something that is much more powerful than what he’s presently got."

Global Warming – Part 1 nice article about global issue today i talking about this global issue is these day women are also drink wine too much this is very bad thing and also when they are pregrent they did't not stop smoking and drinking is effect to her baby which she birth it become many diaseses to brith baby

tony

women drinking wines in her pregency and that not just effect on her health its effect on her birth baby its also have some diasese in these days this is also a global issue

jackee

Global Warming – Part 1 nice article you must write about it global warming tell us more about it now in these days wine is also a problem there are two many bars pubs and wine club in one area that the major problem

Tiffany

I totally agree with you.
Global Warming will happen regardless of what people do and it's pointless to worry about it..
besides..
if it is going to happen, our generation will be long gone so it doesn't really matter either way to me..
and...
we're known to adapt to culture.. evolve or whatever.. so who knows, maybe mankind will adapt and live on...

Mike Williamson

Don't forget the worst culprit in global warming--WATER VAPOR! 95% of the greenhouse effect is water vapor.

Luckily, we have the technology to lay giant sheets of mylar over the oceans to prevent this!

Because, after all, life was so much better during the Ice Age.

Dammit, now I have to go burn another tire.

Mike Williamson

Some Dweeb named Dave said:
I don't understand how hard it is to understand that people burning fossil fuels releases CO2 and other greenhouse gasses, that that is heating the planet, and that heating is causing the climates to change world-wide. It's pretty straightforward actually.
~~~

Really? So explain how CO2 was quintuple the current levels during the late Carboniferous, with a lower average global temperature.

After all, it's straightforward, right? Which is why we've had 99.999% accurate weather forecasts for the last century.

Oh, and we're going to run out of oil by 1980.

And generate so much heat that Mars, Jupiter and Pluto will feel it.

I have a simple solution to the debate: every time some nutter wets his pants about TEOTWAWKI, I go out back and burn another tire. For Dave, I'll burn two.

Tom Simpson

In his debunking of the "Swindle" video DurangoBill uses an interesting graph; the one that shows a corrolation between Methane, CO2 and Temp. over the last 500,00 years or so. There appears to be an enormous spike in all three lines every 100 to 125 thousand years and we are approaching the tip of the most current spike now, right on schedule.
So my question is: If "Man" is causing the current round of "Global Warming" what caused the one 100 thousand years ago and the one 100 thousand years before that one?
Also, the current spike is not as high as the previous ones, yet.

Oli

Haha, I love the way the guy claims that global warming debunker uses manipulated data and then proceeds to use some himself a few sentences later.

He also claims that several graphs showing correlation are absolute definative proof of global warming without really discussing which is the cause and which is teh effect.

The truth of the matter as far as I can see is that the earth if following its normal temprature cycle, looking at ice core samples the average world temprature has been measured going back to before the new testamant. The earth is currently suffering from a cool period that it is just starting to come out of, the global warming has been predicted for near a century, and if you do a quick search on google for predicted temprature changes caused by changes in the earths orbit and axis you should come up with a few reliable predictions.

Considering how little carbon emmisions we produce compared to nature itself I cannot believe we are going to be the death of the world through global warming, especially when 'prominant global warming specialists' hired by the various governments put together a report based on carbon levels including types of carbon that do not store heat.

Pollution is one problem we need to solve though, we are polluting the worl with a huge number of contaminants that are killing off the things we need to survive.

Dave Sag:

I checked one claim that they "debunk". Specifically the claim that other planets are warming as well. In a nutshell, the response they advocate is "That's an interesting coincidence, but it is up to the believers in a natural phenomenon to produce proof of their idea. Those who say global warming is human-caused get a free pass." I grant that the actual wording is more complex; but that is the general meaning.

They assume their conclusion at the onset and use it to "debunk" dissenters. I am not impressed with people who call that effective.

I think it boils down to this -
cities are the pimples on this Earth.
Are they just infected pores
or fatal measles?
Until we find a doctor
who can correctly diagnose a plantary ailment,
we won't know.

I think pimples are more likely, but that doesn't mean the planet's not growing warmer, just that we are too insignificant to be causing it. What kind of ego could believe humans could warm the planet?
