Ringer BS: Where's the Global Warming (1541* d) RE: BS: Where's the Global Warming 14 Jan 10


"Sawzaw's link above is to a piece by well-known climate change skeptic Zbigniew Jaworowski" (GUEST,TIA, 30 Dec 09 - 02:29 PM)

Is that meant to be an argument? I seem to remember you responsing similarly when I cited Prof Morner to you. I could equally respond that TIA is a "well known warmista" and thereby discount anything you say.

"Global Warming could more accurately be called Global Climate Change." (GUEST,TIA, 11 Jan 10 - 05:28 PM)

That's right: when even the least observant can see that things ain't warming, change the subject of the debate: "Well, ectually, 'Global Warming' is more correctly called climate change, and individual weather events are becoming more extreme." Climate has always changed and always will. Some of it may even be anthropogenic - but not as much as you think.

I live in the UK, whose Met Office (well known warmistas, so much so that their web-site now lists them as "weather and climate change") has predicted that the last two summers would be "barbecue summers" (both were washouts) and that the last two winters would be milder than usual (both were - this one is so far - colder than usual). Their forecasts for six months into the future are laughably inaccurate - but they purport to tell us what the climate will be like in a hundred years and we believe them? How absolutely cretinous is that? If you answer one thing on this post, please answer me this: why should we trust the decadal forecasts of these incompetents when we can't trust their mensal forecasts? If their models didn't predict this decade of non-warming, why should we trust their models?

"Google the 'precautionary principle'" (GUEST,TIA, 13 Jan 10 - 09:58 PM)

But the implications of the "precautions" you warmistas advocate in your patronising manner are beggary. You just love to tell other people what to do. Like Pachauri, jetting round the globe at others' expense, to tell others not to jet round the globe. When the science is settled (and anyone with half an eye can see it's not, even the University of East Anglia's Climatic Research Unit - "The fact is that we can't account for the lack of warming at the moment and it is a travesty that we can't.") then you may encourage us to take precautions; until then we'll continue to hold you in derision.
