Climate Change/Global Warming Hysteria with graphs!

Post by robinson »

I became a skeptic in Feb 2010.

Why? What does that even mean?

I remember like it was yesterday. I was helping a neighbor shovel snow after the third blizzard in DC. It was either Snowmageddon or snow Paco lips, we had actually run out of names for what had happened. Everything was just buried in snow, the power out, roads impossible, the government shut down, and the US post office closed for the first time in history. I said, half in jest, “oh well this is global warming”, and he looked at me and laughed, and said “yeah right”, and something clicked. So I started looking at the data

The climate gate emails that come out months earlier, And a lot of things shown there were bothering me, so I was already questioning. But it really was the data that got me really skeptical

I'm still hoping you will narrow down your skepticism a bit--I think these are three reasonable buckets to choose from:

- Doubt that a warming trend is occurring at all.
- Agree that there is a warming trend but doubt that it is significantly driven by human activity
- Agree that there is a warming trend that is significantly driven by human activity, but that we are choosing the wrong solutions.

If there's a different category by all means describe it. Too many people dance around all three when they are nearly exclusive positions.

Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

I’m going to label the buckets to save typing -
A) Doubt that a warming trend is occurring at all.
B)Agree that there is a warming trend but doubt that it is significantly driven by human activity
C)Agree that there is a warming trend that is significantly driven by human activity, but that we are choosing the wrong solutions.


After thinking about it, it appears that there really are only two questions that involve data.

Putting these to rest
A) Doubt that a warming trend is occurring at all.

The question is not exact enough for an answer.

B)Agree that there is a warming trend but doubt that it is significantly driven by human activity

Can’t be answered for same reason

C)Agree that there is a warming trend that is significantly driven by human activity, but that we are choosing the wrong solutions.

Can’t be answered same reason.

“A warming trend” is not scientific. My skepticism is specific, about many things being claimed, based on the basic global warming theory. BGWT

Claims about the BGWT, using computer models, and even old fashioned calculations, were the first thing I looked at.

In the ten years since that epic winter, a lot more data has been gathered. One thing that BGWT definitely predicts (not a projection) is the most warming will be observed in winter, with the most warming happening over land, at extra tropical latitudes, and high elevations. And at night.

This is simple to explain. CO2 caused warming (carbon) is supposed to be happening where water vapor (WV) isn’t overwhelming any carbon effect. WV usually dominates any carbon heating, the original objection to the BGWT

Plass and others brought the theory back showing a carbon effect at high altitudes, where the dry air is free from WV, and this led to calculations and the BGWT coming back as the main driver of climate change (explaining the ice ages)

So while the ice ages were once again explained by the BGWT, a water vapor feedback was added to try and explain some of the unsolved parts of the theory.

The biggest problem was, and still is, how can an ice age start the glacier building phase when carbon is at the peak levels? Just because the AGW theory replaced BGWT as the dominating factor, did not make this huge problem go away.

If you are objecting already to these statements, which is most often the case, you may get be in over your head already.

One reason I rarely even try to discuss this shit online is the self expert idiot problem. If you don’t know anything about the BGWT, how the fuck can you chime in about it?

Of course the science is the BGWT. It’s always a delight to encounter the internet blowhard that can’t even describe the theory.

I get nervous when i see univariate regression. You have made me nervous.

The first question is wtf is this data? What does it purport to represent? Does, it then, actually represent it? In other words is it valid. "Alabama temperature" is simply meaingless.

The meaning of the data shown in the graphs is the combined data from GHCN STATIONS. Tmax is daytime highs, Tmin is night time lows.

If I have to explain monthly or seasonal graphs and what February means I will have to kill you.

the stations are GHCN STATIONS

You are definitely getting ahead in the thread. The issues of station sighting, station changes, instrument changes, changes in surrounding vegetation and land use, all of these factors are considered when dealing with the global historic climate stations.

GHCN (Global historic climate network) stations are the ones used for climate. They are rural and have requirements to meet in order to be used. Questions about the validity of the data from them are many and the issue are very contentious

Btw, to what extent have they monitored thw water table? As you know, that acts as a heat sink and moderates temperature. In many areas the table is lowering. This fact should obviate data from some stations.

May we assume that this has been adequitely accountted for? If so we can go over the details. We are a long way from even graphs.

I already provided the sources for the following graphs. The first one is from a website that promotes global warming and tries to convince people that it’s really bad.

Image

They only show the trend from 1970, one of the coldest periods In our short climate history. This gives the illusion of great nighttime warming in February, usually the coldest month in Alabama. Why this would be important is only known to a small group of people. People who understand the basic global warming Theory

If you are skeptical you might check the data they used by to create their graphic, and find it tells a different story.

This is a small example of the reeking horseshit that is easy to find all over

For the truly ignorant, the graphs show an adjusted dataset created by averaging all the Tmin days for February, from all the GHCN stations in Alabama
