The blizzards are from the warming

The NYT would have us believe that the record low temperatures, record snow fall, and lack of hurricane activity for that matter, is a all due to global warming.

Most climate scientists respond that the ferocious storms are consistent with forecasts that a heating planet will produce more frequent and more intense weather events.

This was exactly the prediction for the previous two year’s hurricane seasons, in that climatologists predicted a record number of hurricanes, and predicted that a record number of them would be of the largest variety.  Problem was that didn’t happen in either year.  Despite climatologists bests information they were flat wrong.  Both seasons were neither above normal, nor did either create an unusual number of intense storms.

I understand well the difference between climate and weather, but the problem is that the climatologists that make these statements can neither accurately predict these conditions, nor explain on a global scale how or why they happen.  In layman’s terms they don’t know what they don’t know.  And that is what separates true scientists from evangelists.  The scientists look for truth and do not start with pre-conceived notions, or at the very least are willing to modify their beliefs based upon the evidence before them.  An evangelist is someone that acts on faith.  Evidence is not necessarily the foundation of their beliefs.  Tell me, is that not what we are seeing from the global warming crowd?

It smacks horribly in the face of fact and history that global warming predictions do not, and in truth can not, account for the known cyclical climate changes that are known to have occurred in the earth’s history.  I’m not suggesting that the global warming climatologists are ignorant of the fact the earth has gone through cooling cycles, broken by warming cycles otherwise known as ice ages.  I’m suggesting that the simple question is being ignored.  Why did the earth have ice ages, and how is climate change now different from previous climate changes?

There are many factors that affect earth’s climate.  Sun activity, volcanism, green-house gases to name but a few.  The question I have in my mind is how do global warming climatologists know, as they have often stated, that human activity is the driving force behind current climate change.  If there is even such a thing occurring now — something that is not even established beyond doubt as climate is something that can only be measured over long periods of time.

Climate is, by definition, a measure of decades and centuries, not months or years.

If “climate change” is caused today by humanity and humanity’s emittance of carbon dioxide how does that square with the fact that humanity only emits 4% of the total amount of carbon dioxide annually

Carbon dioxide generated by human activity amounts to only about four percent of yearly atmospheric uptake or loss of carbon dioxide, but the result is that the concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere has been growing, on average, by four-tenths of one percent each year for the last 40 years.

Of the total amount of carbon dioxide that is emitted globally annually, only 4% of it comes from human activity.  96% comes from other sources.

While we are able to accurately measure the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, much about the processes that govern its atmospheric concentration remains a mystery. Scientists still do not know precisely where all the carbon dioxide in our atmosphere comes from and where it goes.

Yet according to global warming climatologists human activity is the driving force and to counteract that we need to lower global emissions and redistribute wealth to the less developed nations as “reparations” for the climate damage the more developed nations have heaped upon them.  The former is demanded by the scientists, the latter is demanded by the politicians.

What isn’t discussed, or if discussed is dismissed out of hand by the global warming clique are the damning emails (collectively referred to as ClimateGate) released in November 2009 that showed a very unseemly, behind the scenes, wide-spread attempt to strangle climate change critics.  These emails show a concerted effort by many of the main global proponents of the global warming theory to allow only accommodating “science” to be peer-reviewed.  Which of course has the effect over time, of making people believe the “science is settled”.  Something we’ve all heard many times, have we not?

Additionally, damning evidence that the United Nations climate panel (IPCC) last report wasn’t actually even based on science, but rather was based on magazine articles only add to the problem.  Taken together it shows that climate science — and I use that term loosely — being conducted today to prove climate change is shoddy, is being conducted by people who are more fervent in their beliefs than true scientists should be, and even if take on face value do not even prove that human activity is causing any “harm” to the climate in the first place.
