Lord Christopher Monckton on Global warming

You can say he hammers the last nails into the coffin if this mega-lie constructed to bring fear to us, increased taxation and money to the likes of Mr. Damian Al Gore.  A superb presentation by Lord Christopher Monckton.

Let this be the last words on the subject!  -Nuff said.

Physicist Howard Hayden’s one-letter disproof of global warming claims

The Honorable Lisa P. Jackson, Administrator
Environmental Protection Agency
1200 Pennsylvania Ave., NW Washington, DC 20460

Dear Administrator Jackson:

I write in regard to the Proposed Endangerment and Cause or Contribute Findings for Greenhouse Gases Under Section 202(a) of the Clean Air Act, Proposed Rule, 74 Fed. Reg. 18,886 (Apr. 24, 2009), the so-called “Endangerment Finding.”

It has been often said that the “science is settled” on the issue of CO2 and climate. Let me put this claim to rest with a simple one-letter proof that it is false.

The letter is s, the one that changes model into models. If the science were settled, there would be precisely one model, and it would be in agreement with measurements.

Alternatively, one may ask which one of the twenty-some models settled the science so that all the rest could be discarded along with the research funds that have kept those models alive.

We can take this further. Not a single climate model predicted the current cooling phase. If the science were settled, the model (singular) would have predicted it.

Let me next address the horror story that we are approaching (or have passed) a “tipping point.” Anybody who has worked with amplifiers knows about tipping points. The output “goes to the rail.” Not only that, butit stays there. That’s the official worry coming from the likes of James Hansen (of NASA GISS) and Al Gore.

But therein lies the proof that we are nowhere near a tipping point. The earth, it seems, has seen times when the CO2 concentration was up to 8,000 ppm, and that did not lead to a tipping point. If it did, we would not be here talking about it. In fact, seen on the long scale, the CO2 concentration in the present cycle of glacials (ca. 200 ppm) and interglacials (ca. 300-400 ppm) is lower than it has been for the last 300 million years.

Global-warming alarmists tell us that the rising CO2 concentration is (A) anthropogenic and (B) leading to global warming.

(A) CO2 concentration has risen and fallen in the past with no help from mankind. The present rise began in the 1700s, long before humans could have made a meaningful contribution. Alarmists have failed to ask, let alone answer, what the CO2 level would be today if we had never burned any fuels. They simply assume that it would be the “pre-industrial” value.

  • The solubility of CO2 in water decreases as water warms, and increases as water cools. The warming of the earth since the Little Ice Age has thus caused the oceans to emit CO2 into the atmosphere.

(B) The first principle of causality is that the cause has to come before the effect. The historical record shows that climate changes precede CO2 changes. How, then, can one conclude that CO2 is responsible for the current warming?

Nobody doubts that CO2 has some greenhouse effect, and nobody doubts that CO2 concentration is increasing. But what would we have to fear if CO2 and temperature actually increased?

  • A warmer world is a better world. Look at weather-related death rates in winter and in summer, and the case is overwhelming that warmer is better.
  • The higher the CO2 levels, the more vibrant is the biosphere, as numerous experiments in greenhouses have shown. But a quick trip to the museum can make that case in spades. Those huge dinosaurs could not exist anywhere on the earth today because the land is not productive enough. CO2 is plant food, pure and simple.
  • CO2 is not pollution by any reasonable definition.
  • A warmer world begets more precipitation.
  • All computer models predict a smaller temperature gradient between the poles and the equator. Necessarily, this would mean fewer and less violent storms.
  • The melting point of ice is 0 ºC in Antarctica, just as it is everywhere else. The highest recorded temperature at the South Pole is -14 ºC, and the lowest is -117 ºC. How, pray, will a putative few degrees of warming melt all the ice and inundate Florida, as is claimed by the warming alarmists?

Consider the change in vocabulary that has occurred. The term global warming has given way to the termclimate change, because the former is not supported by the data. The latter term, climate change, admits of all kinds of illogical attributions. If it warms up, that’s climate change. If it cools down, ditto. Any change whatsoever can be said by alarmists to be proof of climate change.

In a way, we have been here before. Lord Kelvin “proved” that the earth could not possibly be as old as the geologists said. He “proved” it using the conservation of energy. What he didn’t know was that nuclear energy, not gravitation, provides the internal heat of the sun and the earth.

Similarly, the global-warming alarmists have “proved” that CO2 causes global warming.

Except when it doesn’t.

To put it fairly but bluntly, the global-warming alarmists have relied on a pathetic version of science in which computer models take precedence over data, and numerical averages of computer outputs are believed to be able to predict the future climate. It would be a travesty if the EPA were to countenance such nonsense.

Best Regards,

Howard C. Hayden
Professor Emeritus of Physics, UConn

Music: Real Rap

Liberatorium: Fremtidsutsikter for mat og klima

Det blir svært interresant å se på de kommende tallene i mars/april; om hvordan vinterens avlinger har utviklet seg.  USDA (det amerikanske landbruksdepartementet) og bøndene forteller vidt forskjellige historier om hvorvidt matproduksjonen blir fantastisk (USDA) eller katastrofal (bøndene).  Amerikansk vinterhevete er et viktig bidrag til verdens matforsyninger. Det er nærliggende å tro på de som faktisk sitter på traktorene, og ureasalget var uvanlig lavt i fjor, noe som tyder på at det ble plantet lite.

Det kommer også stadig inn meldinger fra rundt om kring i verden om feilslåtte avlinger pga. kulde og tørke.  India har allerede innført forbud mot mateksport, og problemene vil øke i omfang ettersom den globale nedkjølingen blir kraftigere i årene fremover. NASA spår gradvis nedkjøling minst frem til år 2022, og kanskje så lenge som 50-60 år. (“The slowdown we see now means that Solar Cycle 25, peaking around the year 2022, could be one of the weakest in centuries”). De globale matvarelagrene er samtidig på laveste nivå siden tidlig på 1950 tallet, og den gjennomsnittlige storby har forsyninger til ca tre dagers forbruk.

Økonomiske parametre blir trolig snart snudd på hodet, hvor verdens nasjoner i stedet for å gjøre stadige forsøk på devalueringer for å styrke sin eksport, heller vil prøve å revaluere for å gjøre matimport billigere.. Det vil være signalet på at ting virkelig holder på å gå galt.. at f.eks. kineserne, (som har valutareserver og dermed muskler til dette) styrker sin valuta for å kunne fø på sin befolkning. Dette kan for eksempel utløse en krig mellom Etiopia og Eritrea. Erik Solheim og han’s meningsfrender vil ende opp med millioner av liv på samvittigheten; å konvertere mat mat til biodiesel er et indirekte folkemord! ..håper bare at det ikke er med overlegg. Disse menneskene er fiksert på ideen om en såkalt overbefolkning. FN utarbeider stadig mer ekstreme planer for å redusere verdens befolkning, og ønsker en global ettbarnspolitikk sammen med sterilisering av de fattige.

I tillegg til klimaendringer og globale gjeldsubalanser (en lang rekke nasjoner er teknisk konkurs!), har vi også demografiske trender som jobber imot en økonomisk innhentning. De industrialiserte nasjonene vil etter 2012 få en voldsom økning i antall pensjonister i forhold til antall unge mennesker i arbeidsfør alder når de store etterkrigskullene gradvis pensjoneres. Et politisk opprør blandt unge mennesker, med krav om å senke skattene og å samtidig heve pensjonsalderen, kan forventes.. den perfekt storm er på vei. Eventuelle revalueringer er verdt å følge med på.. pluss selvfølgelig å holde et øye med prisene på agro:

The Truth: Population Reduction Is The “Cheapest” Way To Reduce Carbon Emissions

For the environmental extremists attending the U.N. climate change summit in Copenhagen, fighting global warming is not just about reducing carbon emissions or promoting alternative energy.  Rather, public documents released by some of the most important organizations represented at Copenhagen reveal an absolute obsession with population control and a bizarre belief by environmental extremists that population reduction is the “cheapest” way to achieve a reduction in carbon emissions.  You see, to many of those gathered in Copenhagen, the math is simple.  Less people = less carbon emitters.  In fact, a carbon offset initiative launched by the Optimum Population Trust even allows people to offset their “carbon footprint” by making online payments to support “family planning” in poor countries.  In other words, you can now be forgiven for your carbon “sins” by paying for a baby on the other side of the world to be killed.

As bizarre as this may seem, it is actually happening.

Liberatoriums predictions: Food shortage and cold freeze

…wheat (and soy etc) should be up pretty much until 2022,
as the environleninists have set us up for foodshortages,
converting food to diesel, just when global cooling sets in.
climategate is gathering momentum, both in the americas and in europe.

I am buying into norwegian fishfarms, and DAG (2x long agro)
and am looking for an entry into stocks such as CRESY…

this guy has a lot of useful info and links, although I’m not necessarily
in agreement with his conclusions.. food crisis for dummies

nr 1 market timer in the world, Tom McClellan, has a piece at decisionpoint,
outlining his expectations for a sideways and choppy market into the year 2022.
this fits very well with the kondratieff cycle and solar activity.
“The slowdown we see now means that Solar Cycle 25, peaking around the year 2022,
could be one of the weakest in centuries,” solar cycle #24 is set to peak may 2013.
there has been some uncertanty whether the mini ice age has allready started,
or if the real cooling will have to wait until after next solar maximum arround may 2013.
.. the weather conditions over the last couple of months is giving credence to the former.
changes in the sun’s surface to bring next climate change.

the demographic time bomb is also set to detonate during this period.. harry dent

we are running out of time for the market to do it’s thing before
the next sunspotcycle kicks in with increasing solar activity.
solar maximum is scheduled for may 2013, so an economic upturn
should be maturing by then, and likely be nearing it’s completion.
there has never been a recession that initiated while the monthly
number of sunspots was increasing, and ongoing ones have soon faded.
not since 1913 has there been a comparatively long period with
minimum activity such we are witnessing today.. 1913 was a tragic year!

I don’t think all markets made their final bottom last march,
like crb for instance, which did not trade below the 2001 low.
martin armstrong’s economic confidence model, the pei cycle,
has a major inflection point estimated for this upcoming march/april.

as to what may trigger such dramatic moves in the markets,
a domino effect of souvereign defaults seems to be the most probable.
the next stage of the credit crisis … barton biggs on the likelyhood of anarchy
the founder of shadowstats, John Williams: we’re screwed!
a note of appreciation from the rich … the earth plus 5%

sooner or later, the words of Lord Acton will materialise.. he said:
“… the issue which has swept down the centuries and will have to
be fought sooner or later is THE PEOPLE VERSUS THE BANKS.”
