Doom! DOOM!! And Other Stories

Chilled Monkey Brainz from its inception in 1999, then known as “Jaeger’s Rants,” was never meant to be anything more than “Short Stories, Flick Reviews, Rants, and Raves.” It was never meant to be a forum for serious, (or not so serious, as the case may be) discussion. To be honest, I am perfectly happy to have the fan page for that sort of thing. However, today we were supposed to have part two of the Summer Flick Preview, but instead you are getting this because I do believe it is an important issue to discuss.

The biggest fallacy of the Global Warming Doomsayers is the erroneous assertion that carbon dioxide is a pollutant, which it is not. Carbon dioxide (CO2) is a colourless, odourless, tasteless, non-toxic gas which is essential to all life on Earth. All green vegetation requires carbon dioxide as plant food, and the process of photosynthesis, in which plants take in carbon dioxide, absorb solar radiation, store the carbon and emit oxygen. As concentrations of carbon dioxide increase, the rates of growth of plants also increase. Flowers and vegetables grown in hothouses are frequently fed with extra carbon dioxide for faster growth and higher yields. This is science fact, not fiction.

Every time a story on global warming is featured on TV, either a background image of a cooling tower from a power station, with its plume of minute water droplets above, or a smoke stack belching forth dark plumes of soot, ash, and other particulates, is shown. In this mendacious way, carbon dioxide is identified as a serious pollutant, and the USA and Canada are always labeled as the world’s greatest polluters. Mark Steyn said “In the past third of a century, the American economy has swollen by 150 per cent, automobile traffic has increased by 143 per cent, and energy consumption has grown 45 per cent. During this same period, air pollutants have declined by 29 per cent, toxic emissions by 48.5 per cent, sulphur dioxide levels by 65.3 per cent, and airborne lead by 97.3 per cent.”(1)

One of the other things that bugs me is when people like Al Gore say that ”Unless anthropogenic (that means HUMAN for you that don't know - Jaeger) emissions of carbon dioxide are reduced by 50–60 per cent of current levels by the year 2050, by 2100 our descendants will have to endure global temperatures of between 1.4 to 5.8°C warmer than the present.”

This claim is at the heart of the global warming scam. It is based on projections
coming out of models run on the most powerful computers which purport to simulate the behaviour of the atmosphere as it responds to changes in carbon dioxide concentrations. The claim that computer models can do this and produce meaningful results is regarded as nonsense by leading scientists in the fields of fluid mechanics, numerical modeling of complex systems, and climate science.

For example, Hendrik Tennekes, wrote recently, “the task of finding all nonlinear feedback mechanisms in the microstructure of the radiation balance probably is at least as daunting as the task of finding the proverbial needle in the haystack. The blind adherence to the harebrained idea that climate models can generate ‘realistic’ simulations of climate is the principal reason why I remain a climate skeptic. From my background in turbulence I look forward with grim anticipation to the day that climate models will run with a horizontal resolution of less than a
kilometer. The horrible predictability problems of turbulent flows then will
descend on climate science with a vengeance.”

Reid Bryson, Emeritus Professor at the University of Wisconsin, and regarded by
many climatologists as the ‘father of climatology’ has written, “A model is nothing more than a formal statement about how the modeler believes the part of the world of his concern actually works … it may be years before computer capacity and human knowledge are adequate for reasonable simulation … the main models in use all have similar errors, but it is hardly surprising, for they are all essentially clones of each other.”

Australia’s Bill Kininmonth, director of the National Climate Centre from 1986 to
1998, writes, “The apparent ability of the computer models to simulate the global surface
temperatures of the 20th century comes with too many assumptions and
shortcomings. Despite the IPCC advocacy, it is not possible to isolate
anthropogenic greenhouse gases as the cause (or even a major cause) for
the observed warming of the last two and a half decades of the 20th century.
The world-wide advance of mountain glaciers until the mid-19th century,
and their steady retreat since, point toward large-scale natural processes
systematically affecting the climate system over prolonged intervals.
Whether the systematic processes are internal to the climate system, an
outcome of external forcing, or a combination of these, cannot be
determined with any confidence from existing data and analysis tools. As a
corollary, the sensitivity of the earth’s temperature response to greenhouse
gas forcing cannot be scaled by reference to the magnitude of recent global
temperature increase and the forcing by anthropogenic greenhouse gases
as represented in computer model simulations of the 20th century.”(2)

Now don’t get me wrong, I believe that the Earth goes through periods of climate change, just look at the history of the planet as proof of that. One hundred million years ago the Earth was a much warmer place than it is now, and there were no people, or SUVs. Ten thousand years ago there was a great Ice Age, and a smaller one just over five thousand years ago, and in the seventies David Suzuki was saying we were defiantly heading into another, but these days the money is in “warming” and the so-called threat that it represents and that is why the media is all over the Global Warming scam these days.
