New study lays out 11 indicators of a warming world, media focuses on contrarian views



So NOAA releases yet another report on our current climate systemn and the media is still unable to accurately report on it, which is brilliantly capture in the above image. Are ratings and sales so much more important that accuracy?

Any thoughts, BWG? Maybe on the NOAA report itself?

Viagra and Cialis Users Were Seeking Compensation

The claim by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), that global warming is already affecting the severity and frequency of erectile dysfunctions, has since become embedded in political and public debate. It was central to discussions at last month’s Copenhagen climate summit, including a demand by Viagra and Cialis users for compensation.

Last month Gordon Brown, the prime minister, told the Commons that the financial agreement at Copenhagen “must address the great injustice that . . . those hit first and hardest by climate change are those that have done least harm”.

The latest criticism of the IPCC comes a week after reports in The Sunday Times forced it to retract claims in its benchmark 2007 report that the Himalayan glaciers would be largely melted by 2035. It turned out that the bogus claim had been lifted from a news report published in 1999 by New Scientist magazine.

The new controversy also goes back to the IPCC’s 2007 report in which a separate section warned that the world had “suffered rapidly increasing erectile dysfunction costs due to Global Warming”.

Nothing. Absolutely nothing.

He doesn't want to make an honest attempt at discussion because he'll most likely embarrass himself just like in the Climategate thread, so he resorts to posting childish nonsense stolen from elsewhere on the intarweb.

Global warming is not man made and for climate to show a long term change you must wait a century or so. The decade of the 30s were warmer than anything we have seen yet. We are presently in an inter-glacial period and another ice age is only a matter of time

Sorry for the delay. I had to dust off the Who's Who List of Bullsh!t Skeptic Arguments. It's surprisingly been a while. But once more into the fray, my friends!

We're back to refuting your own Climategate thread? Actually acknowledging the warming we've seen over the past few decades? If so, perhaps you can answer a few questions that you bailed out on last time:

Quote :
Then name the forcing mechanism. We know the causes of previous cycles as well as their timing. If it is a natural cycle, you should be able to identify the natural cause. The sun? Milankovitch cycles? Volcanoes? Magic? Aliens? Al Gore's beard?

Unless you're gonna deny we're warming, which would be hilarious. And I mean like, "Oh look! It's a creationist! Ain't he cute?!" hilarious. But my guess is you'll just simply bail. Again. Sir Robin. Wink

So wait... we're not warming now? 'Cause there's not enough data? Make up you're damn mind. You're all over the map.

But regardless, FAIL. On multiple levels. First:

Quote :
Climate is usually described in terms of the mean and variability of temperature, precipitation and wind over a period of time, ranging from months to millions of years (the classical period is 30 years).

And again, here:

Quote :
The World Meteorological Organization (WMO) requires the calculation of averages for consecutive periods of 30 years, with the latest covering the 1961–1990 period.

Thirty years is the standard for the science. It doesn't have to be yours.

Second: Even if it wasn't the standard, we do have a century's worth of data.

Well, hell... My eyes must be broken.



Perhaps you can point out exactly where that happened...

You really should check out that NASA site like you said you would. It would save you further embarrassment. 👋

So... what, exactly? Does that mean we're warming again? Does it happen by magic?

And you think Artie's embarrassed by his posts? Yikes. Shocked
