More Fear And Doom From The Church Of Climatology
Posted by Tory Aardvark
Climategate has raised many questions about the science of Climate Change, the AGW alarmists always respond with the “science is beyond doubt” or “the science is proven”. Science is supposed to be questioned continually as we learn more, when you cease to question something it has become a belief system commonly know as religion.
Copenhagen was founded on the politics and science of fear, and following on from it’s spectacular failure the alarmists are going to step up the fear message.
Let us pretend that the UN’s central estimate of equilibrium “global warming” caused by CO2, allowing for all temperature feedbacks, is correct. In that case, temperature change, in Celsius degrees, is equal to 4.7 times the logarithm of the proportionate increase in CO2 concentration.
First, check that this equation is correct by working out how much warming would occur if we doubled CO2 concentration. The warming would be 4.7 ln 2 = 3.26 Celsius degrees, exactly the central estimate given by the UN’s climate panel in its 2007 assessment report.
It is also commonly understood that the recent melting of Arctic ice was caused by warm Pacific Ocean water flowing into the Arctic Ocean in combination with strong Arctic winds which pushed the sea ice into the open ocean.
Doesn’t fit either the computer models or the environmental hysteria, does it?
