Bummer: Globull Warming Theory Has Failed

Joseph D’Aleo, CCM, Weatherbell Analytics, has put together a long list of just how badly “climate change” theory has failed over at Icecap

AGW theory has failed all tests, so alarmists return to the ‘consensus’ hoax

  1. Warming not ‘global’. It is shown in satellite data to be northern hemisphere only
  2. It is now not warming. Warming (global mean and northern hemisphere) stopped in the 1990s
  3. Models suggest atmosphere should warm 20% faster than surface but surface warming was 33% faster during the time satellites and surface observations used. This suggests GHG theory wrong, and surface temperature contaminated
  4. Temperatures longer term have been modified to enhance warming trend and minimize cyclical appearance. Station dropout, missing data, change of local siting, urbanization, instrumentation contaminate the record, producing exaggerating warming. The GAO scolded NOAA for poor compliance with siting standards.
  5. Those who create the temperature records have been shown in analysis and emails to take steps to eliminate inconvenient temperature trends like the Medieval Warm Period, the 1940s warm blip and cooling since 1998. Steps have included removal of the urban heat island adjustment and as Wigley suggested in a climategate email, introduce 0.15C of artificial cooling of global ocean temperatures near 1940.
  6. Forecast models have failed with temperature trends below even the assumed zero emission control scenarios
  7. Climate models all have a strong hot spot in the mid to high troposphere in the tropical regions. Weather balloons and satellite show no warming in this region the last 30 years.

D’Aleo goes on for a total of 25 points. Noticeably absent is the notion that most Warmists, especially the leaders, fail to practice what they preach at best, and are massive climahypocrites at worst, but, then, D’Aleo was focusing on the failure of the science, not the part where this whole movement is about far left Progressive politics.

Given the failures of global warming science, just a few mentioned here, the most disreputable alarmists like Oreskes, Cook and Trenberth and the demagogue party have tried to convince the uniformed by using the consensus argument. See the latest failed attempt here. It was also described on Forbes here.

“Historically, the claim of consensus has been the first refuge of scoundrels; it is a way to avoid debate by claiming that the matter is already settled. Whenever you hear the consensus of scientists agrees on something or other, reach for your wallet, because you’re being had. Let’s be clear: the work of science has nothing whatever to do with consensus. Consensus is the business of politics.” Michael Crichton 17 January 2003 speech at the California Institute of Technology

Warmists are still pushing consensus hard, especially the new and ridiculous “97% consensus” study, which is actually only about 33% consensus, and includes those studies that claim mankind is responsible for less than 50% of the warming.

Oh, BTW, I’m eagerly awaiting the Warmists claims that Tropical Storm Andrea is caused by “climate change”, all because you drove an SUV and took a shower longer than 2 minutes this morning.
