Climate Science: Put Up or Shut Up

That’s the theme of an article by Rowan Dean in The Courier-Mail, Australia:  Time for climate scientists to produce evidence that carbon dioxide emissions affect climate  Full text below with my bolds and images.

IT’S time for so-called climate scientists to either cough up one single, solitary shred of genuine scientific evidence that proves that the climate is being changed by mankind’s carbon dioxide emissions, or ‘fess up and admit that the whole thing is a gigantic hoax.

That’s the bottom line.

Asked at the beginning of this year for one of those “predictions for 2017”, I claimed that this would be the year the Australian public wakes up and realises they are being hoodwinked by the whole climate change/renewables scam.

I told Paul Murray’s lively late night TV show on Sky News that 2017 would be the year the climate con comes to an end. So how is my prediction going?

Well, so far this year two extraordinary books have come out, and one insightful film, that support my argument that the public is indeed waking up to the tricks of the climate change/renewables fraud.

Climate Change: The Facts 2017, a series of essays published by the Institute of Public Affairs, not only debunks the entire scare campaign about the Great Barrier Reef, but in a piece of superb investigative work Dr Jennifer Marohasy exposes the Bureau of Meteorology’s embarrassing manipulation of temperature data.

The book has sold out three print runs and gained serious attention overseas. Then came the surprise hit film Climate Hustle by sceptic Marc Morano, which was, ironically, more popular than the scaremongering Al Gore film it challenged.

And this week a new book is coming out by Australia’s Ian Plimer, one of our greatest geologists.

Called Climate Change Delusion and the Great Electricity Rip-off it’s a must-read for anyone who still believes they’re saving the planet by paying through the nose for electricity.  Because you’re not. The planet is doing just fine with or without your financial impoverishment, and whatever changes may or may not be occurring to our planet’s climate, it almost certainly has nothing to do with your gas bill.

As Plimer points out, Australia is blessed with an abundance of the cheapest and cleanest energy on the planet, yet we are paying the highest electricity prices on earth.

Put simply, that doesn’t add up. And when something smells fishy, it’s because it is.

Australian taxpayers are being ripped off by deluded luvvies (Turnbull is one of the worst) pandering to the voracious leeches of the renewables industry and their greedy investors gorging on a bloated smorgasbord of your cash which they siphon up via subsidies, targets and bills.

Yet, as Plimer points out, it’s all in vain. With rigorous scientific and geological data, Plimer provides evidence that the climate “experts” fail to provide. He shows that Earth has frequently warmed up, cooled down, and warmed up again, but this process has never had anything to do with CO2.

Indeed, the geological evidence is that Earth’s coldest periods often had far higher atmospheric CO2 levels than we do now. What’s more, the mild warming we may currently be experiencing (we are, geologically speaking, still in an Ice Age and moving slowly out of it) has always been associated in human history with increased health, wealth, fertility and prosperity.

Mankind’s most successful times have been in periods such as the Roman era or medieval warming when the Earth was warmer than it is now.

Indeed, we are currently seeing flora around the globe getting greener and more fertile as CO2 levels increase.

Meanwhile, desperately trying to reinvigorate the whole tiresome climate change alarmist nonsense, this year we got Al Gore’s latest horror flick-cum-ad for his own renewables investments An Inconvenient Sequel (what an unoriginal title).

Showing suitably terrifying footage of storms, floods and hurricanes, the film was a box-office flop that received lacklustre reviews at best. Oh, and the other day an ANU “climate scientist” made the hysterical (and unprovable) claim that Sydney and Melbourne “could” roast in 50 degree summers by the end of the century.

Global Mean Temperature from land and ocean expressed in absolute degrees F.

That’s it. And still no proof that man-made carbon dioxide emissions are warming the planet. Still no proof that a warmer planet can be avoided, or would actually be a bad thing. Still no proof that removing civilisation’s reliance on coal is even remotely feasible. Still no proof that even if we did do all the things climate fanatics want us to do and destroy our economies and lifestyles, it would make the slightest difference to global temperatures. And still no proof that we even need to.

The biggest con of all is that Australian voters are denied any political leadership courageous enough to call out this scaremongering for what it is, cancel all our subsidies, targets and the Paris Agreement, which only enrich renewables carpetbaggers, and return us to a land blessed with cheap, abundant energy.

    The poster child for fraud and corruption based on weak at best climate predictions is New Zealand’s Turitea wind farm. This nonsense which has led to a city being sacrificed to the Emissions Trading Scheme. All political parties own this fraud and the GCSB and NZSIS with Google’s help are covering up. http://newzealandjusticeandpolitics.weebly.com/

      Be glad that New Zealand does at least have a Libertarian Party. Voters have nobody to blame but their own lack of resolve. Other countries are not so fortunate.

    At the root of the assumed chain of causation from emissions to the alleged catastrophic consequences climate change is the notion that changes in atmospheric CO2 levels are driven by emissions; but there is no empirical evidence for that relationship. Please see
    https://ssrn.com/abstract=2997420

    Climate science has attempted to establish the required relationship between the rate of emissions and changes in atmos co2 as well as the rate of warming in terms of a correlation between cumulative values called the TCRE (transient climate response to cumulative emissions). The so called path independent carbon budget (a fixed amount of total emissions that will raise temperature by 2 deg C) is based on the TCRE. This whole line of reasoning and apparent empirical evidence is spurious because it contains a fatal statistics flaw. Please see
    https://ssrn.com/abstract=3000932

    In fact there is no correlation between the rate of emissions and the rate of warming. Please see
    https://ssrn.com/abstract=3033001

    Until climate science can address these issues there is no credible “theory of anthropogenic global warming”

    The temperature graph is clearly a depiction of data massaged to reverse the cooling trend. More irritating is recitation of the oxymoron “climate scientist.” People who dismiss physics and chemistry to claim that bearded prophets resurrect the dead are at best priests and at worst fools, charlatans, con artists or the fifth column of a hostile industrial power. Observe that all of the nuclear winter advocates of unilateral disarmament and surrender to soviet socialism are today’s warmer climate charlatans.
