Re: More On Consensus

Did you see where I explained it already or should I try to repeat? The 0.28 is the max we hit in the mid 90's, but the CO2 is increasing and higher than was and so I imagine WORST case (you know I will) it could be half again as much. Not more. [more]

Re: Warmist turned Skeptic- Good Interview

For a long time the misinformation that there must be a tropospheric "hot spot" has been part of the mantra from the paid shills.

The problem is that this, while having fallen out of the models, is not required by the [more]

Re: More On Consensus

In the preceding 100 years we saw the trend at 0.17 degrees/decade... and that is a well established trend. I should have been clearer that 0.4 might be had as a SHORT term (decade or so) trend.

We also saw (as I linked) that when the other [more]

Re: More On Consensus

The last 20 years remain the warmest we know of, in spite of a lot of things working to make them cooler.

When warming resumes with the CO2 at higher level that it will have achieved in the interim, the temperature change can be half again [more]

Re: More On Consensus

The number of forcing parameters in the models apart from CO2 is 5 or 6, and you persist in your misunderstanding of how models need to be used and interpreted.

Re: More On Consensus

In other words, using a simplistic assessment of what the temperature will do, assuming it is entirely CO2 and ignoring any differences in any of the other forcings is the best way to assess the accuracy of the projections. Nobody who is not [more]

Anyone who is smart enough to actually look at the entire temperature record can see that there is AMPLE reason to expect it to resume. In the past 180 years it always has. So you are wrong about thhat claim.

Re: More On Consensus

Ah... yes... you used a lot of words to cover the fact that you formed your opinion based on the contents of a book, a work of fiction, that he wrote. Complete with imaginary science and imaginary scientists, about as realistic as Lord of the Rings.

Re: More On Consensus

The probability of warming over the last 15 years approached unity too.

You ENTIRELY misunderstand or misrepresent the long term temperature record, the probabilities inherent in it, and what has warmed and what hasn't in that [more]

That's the problem then.

What are the odds that the problems will be catastrophic?

We know that the probability of us going over 3 degrees is approaching unity. That is the scientific information.

We are still not getting an answer about the science and the scientists and the problem of what to do.

If you agree that the science is good, and that the results CAN be catastrophic, then any rational application of risk management says [more]

Re: Hype or next big thing?

We've known about flow batteries for a while. I've never seen a small/portable version and it isn't clear exactly what they're using but I want one.

This may be a signal of the tech we're looking for.

OK... we got a decent version of "who you don't trust"... but by saying it as you just did you make it clear that do not trust the science or the scientists because that IS the consensus.

Except that the bio that DD cited DID make the point that Crichton accepted the concept, assigning it a low impact. That makes him a lukewarmer, but does not make you "right". I quoted the words to you, direct from the link that DD [more]

As noted by the IPCC, increases in temperature up to 2 degrees are apt to give us somewhat better productivity at equilibrium. at equilibrium
