Climate change modelling "a fools paradise".

    All those youtube videos he keeps putting up are indirectly from the Heritage foundation - we all know who provides their funding.

    Fossil fuels receive a huge amount of subsidies compared to renewables. There is no money to be made from working in climate science, apart from distorting and lying about it for oil companies.

    Throughout threads on climate change, the science has remained consistent - anthropogenic CO2 is warming the planet, the rate of warming is increasing, and the consequences are getting worse. There is warming above natural variation, this heat is being absorbed at CO2 wavelengths and this CO2 has an isotopic footprint showing human origin. Your arguments against this have ranged across a huge amount of different objections, depending on which videos you have been watching,

    It has consistently changed data to fit the AGW hypothesis, in that they have been very consistent.

    AGW is a massive propaganda campaign with nefarious political intentions:


    And just for good measure:

    I don't have lexus on 'ignore' but these days I just don't bother reading his posts.

    It saves the job of having to wade through a lot of the tiresomely uninformed, crankish nonsense that clogs up other threads besides this one.

    It's not a level playing field on here and some posters just aren't worth the bother.

    The stupidest post on this thread.

    And right up there with the stupidest things I've ever heard.

    Also in 1918 the Carolina parakeet became extinct yet there was no news coverage at all.

    Steve/Tony seems to have missed this from the report he pulled the data from:

    "Over the year, it snows more than it melts, but calving of icebergs also adds to the total mass budget of the ice sheet. Satellite observations over the last decade show that the ice sheet is not in balance. The calving loss is greater than the gain from surface mass balance, and Greenland is losing mass at about 200 Gt/yr."


    Regarding the manipulation of weather datasets -

    So Tony got the increased icing over the last couple of years but failed to get the greater ice loss? Isn't that called cherry-picking? New Scientist highlighted the arctic fires but considered those in Siberia while Tony was dealing with American fires.
    1867 Alaska was purchased from Russia. When forested areas such as those in Canada are developed, surely burning can be an attractive clearage method?

    Is Yosemite in the Arctic?
