Re: RoRR2UCA

Climate alarm belongs to a class of issues characterized by a claim for which there is no evidence

Really? No evidence? None at all?

Re: No Net Cost To Tackle Climate Change

Philip Morris made that argument once. Smoking saves money by killing people off faster:

Re: Antartic Ice More Again

They seem to be saying they know the OHC (and presumably the temperature) to one part in ten thousand, which is odd considering the standard error is in the 5% range.

Since they clearly give the standard error, there is nothing wrong [more]

Re: Apple has "forced" free stuff on u

Funny ad. It's fake, but still amusing.

Re: Fact #4:Greenhouse fx on global temp is limited

Now this is a fact I can agree with. Yes, the greenhouse effect on global temperature is limited. It is not infinite.

Re: Hansen's Predictions Of Global Warming Doom

The NOAA page is only greenhouse gas forcing. I think Tamino is showing total forcing. It is not surprising they are different.

My calculations put us just at Scenario C.

Re: Antarctica ice is declining

I'm curious; where did you get the 97% number?

It would have been better to use "vast majority" and "small minority" rather than trying to quantify the number.

Re: Antarctica ice is declining

What's obvious is that it is a serious argument and is "what's left".

I agree, it is what's left. And it is the argument made by the 3% of climate scientists who don't think climate change is a serious risk. But the evidence [more]

Re: Antarctica ice is declining

The obvious -- climate sensitivity is low.

That is a statement, not an argument with supporting evidence. The totality of the evidence does not support this claim with any certainty.

Re: Antarctica ice is declining

EVERY skeptic knows the arguments supporting climate change. We also understand why you think it is true. Very few warmists can legitimately claim the reverse.

Yet the temperature history is not repeatable. Temperatures are recorded on various instruments (itself a variable that would go against the tenets of scientific method) and will never be able to be retested, re-proven, re-confirmed. Very [more]
