Re: 50,000 Posts

If climate researches had actual science to share (e.g. data), then they will share that. When they offer their personal opinion it is NOT science and they shouldn't be using their credentials to push it.

I simply disagree. Science is [more]

Re: 50,000 Posts

All of the climate spokesmen that allow their personal opinion on climate trump their scientific rigor, need to be Excommunicated from climate research and replaced with researchers able to more objectively assess the science.

Re: This just in!

That is not a trend - That is cherry picking the data - If you include more years, then there is absolutely no trend!

Sure - I'm cherry picking the data by using all the available data!

Re: This just in!

But when the period of no global warming gets longer than the period of actual global warming, what is the climate trend then?

It's curious that articles making claims like this never actually seem to show any data. That's [more]

This is the data point I am remembering, the whole theory hangs on 0.056%

Ajax, every scientist knows that it doesn't WORK the same way a greenhouse does.

This is a bit of a common misconception. Of course, actual greenhouses have the advantage of trapping any heat generated, whereas in the open air it [more]

They are used for verification of Cowtan and Way and of GISTEMP, both of which interpolate over the Arctic Ocean. They are used for the DMI Arctic Temperture estimate which confirms Arctic warming shown in GISTEMP and Cowtan and Way.

Re: What is the risk

... meaning, you do not need CO2 to have a sea level rise.

No, you don't -- and no-one is saying that. Orbital forcing will do that (raise sea levels) just fine without help from CO2.

But that doesn't mean the converse isn't [more]

Re: What is the risk

Re: IR Astronomer: It's The Water, Not The CO2

Bottom line, the planet can radiate a lot of the heat straight into space unimpeded by CO2.

But, Ajax, the radiation is NOT unimpeded by CO2. Otherwise the emission would follow the 320 K blackbody emission curve all way out to longer [more]

Windchasers: No, that's not right. Even a body at 70°F radiates substantially in the >18 micron range. You're confusing the peak radiation wavelength with the entire radiation spectra.

No,the prominent "bite" shown between 13-18 microns is there because the Earth is not radiating anything in that range.
