British Met Office publishes Climate Data

met_office-1
The British Net Office now makes data available data on their internet site that were falsified recorded by 5113 weather stations in the last 150 years. As always, the respective news release was issued in German so that the Friends of Science cannot read it.

Als im November 2009, kurz vor der Uno-Klimakonferenz in Kopenhagen, mehr als tausend E-Mails britischer Klimaforscher veröffentlicht wurden, geriet eine eigentlich für sicher gehaltene Annahme ins Wanken: Erwärmt sich die Erde wirklich? Skeptiker sahen in den E-Mails den Beweis, dass die Klimaprognosen auf windigen Berechnungen beruhten, dass die Forscher unsauber arbeiten würden - und sich dessen durchaus bewusst seien.

Eine unabhängige Untersuchungskommission kam ein halbes Jahr später zum Ergebnis, dass die Mitarbeiter der Climatic Research Unit (CRU) an der University of East Anglia
sauber gearbeitet hatten . Die sogenannte "Climagate" -Affäre war damit eigentlich beendet, doch die Angriffe von Skeptikern haben seither kaum nachgelassen. Read More...

Water Witching (Dowsing) works for Climate-Change Deniers!

09water-600
Schweinsgruber says: We recently reported on Barry ‘The Coop’ Cooper, who cited ’scientist’ and water dowser Nils-Axel Moerner in support of scientists against global warming. We at FoGT don’t think water dowsers are no scientists as this testimony demonstrates. You can take dowsing classes, too. Just sign up here!


My uncle Louie considered himself a skilled dowser. I am a Professor of Exploration Geophysics so you might expect me to be skeptical, but I believe my uncle Louie could find water by dowsing.

Uncle Louie improved upon the traditional method of using willow twigs. He used bent welding rods. Willow twigs are long and slim. Welding rods have more mass and are even slimmer. He would bend
ends of the welding rods down at a 90 degree angle. Then the rods look like this: Read More...

Michael Specter, "Denialism: How Irrational Thinking Harms the Planet and Threatens Our Lives" [Audiobook, unabridged]
Recorded Book | 2010 | ISBN: 1440779503 | MP3@64 kbps | 8 hrs 35 mins | 240.84 Mb

Although denialists, according to Specter, come from both ends of the political spectrum, they have one important trait in common: their willingness to replace the rigorous and open-minded skepticism of science with the inflexible certainty of ideological commitment. Specter analyzes the consequences of this inflexibility and draws some startling and uncomfortable conclusions for the health of both individuals and society. For example, though every reputable scientific study demonstrates the safety of major childhood vaccines, opponents of childhood immunization are winning the publicity war; childhood immunizations are tumbling and preventable diseases are increasing, often leading to unnecessary deaths. Specter, a New Yorker science and public health writer, does an equally credible job of demolishing the health claims made by those promoting organic produce and all forms of alternative medicine. Specter is both provocative and thoughtful in his defense of science and rationality—though he certainly does not believe that scientists are infallible. His writing is engaging and his sources are credible, making this a significant addition to public discourse on the importance of discriminating between credible science and snake oil.

Bones of Frederick Seitz exhumed from ‘Pilgrimage’ Grave

FSeitz
WUNSIEDEL, Germany - The remains of tobacco lobbyist Fred Singer’s deputy Frederick Seitz have been exhumed from a grave in Bavaria after it became a pilgrimage for thousands of free marketeers and other right-wing extremists.   
 
A church official in the southern town of Wunsiedel said on Thursday the tomb had been razed and its headstone removed after consulting with Seitz’s family over how to handle the grave site.   

“The bones were removed and brought to the crematorium, and the ashes are to be scattered at sea,” Peter Seisser said.               

An early, fervent member of pro tobacco movement, Seitz spent time in prison with Fred Singer in the early 1920s and helped edit
Mein Denial — the book in which the blow hard outlined plans to destroy European Jewelry and murder climate scientists he considered undesirable.      Read More...

Earth's Climate History: Implications for Tomorrow

james-hansen
By James E. Hansen and Makiko Sato – July 2011

The past is the key to the future. Contrary to the
Friends of Science’s APEGGA engineers’ popular belief, climate models are not the principal basis for assessing human-made climate effects. Our most precise knowledge comes from Earth's paleoclimate, its ancient climate, and how it responded to past changes of climate forcings, including atmospheric composition. Our second essential source of information is provided by global observations today, especially satellite observations, which reveal how the climate system is responding to rapid human-made changes of atmospheric composition, especially atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2). Models help us interpret past and present climate changes, and, in so far as they succeed in simulating past changes, they provide a tool to help evaluate the impacts of alternative policies that affect climate.

Lord Monckton runs wild in Wellington Streets

Green-Yellow-Red-Monckton
A mystery sheep ran wild through the streets of central Wellington before it was apprehended by police, who took the animal to cells in the back of a patrol car.

Wellington police Senior Sergeant Anita Dixon said police received three or four calls from concerned members of the public who saw the sheep bolting down Ghuznee Street and along Vivian Street at around 11.30pm last night.

A police unit was dispatched find the sheep were about to give up until they found it cornered in the Briscoes carpark on Taranaki Street by a group of people.

"Some members of the public had jumped on it and held it down in the carpark," Dixon said.

With no other clear options, and mindful of the havoc it could cause to late-night revellers and traffic, the officers bundled the sheep into the back of their vehicle and headed back to Wellington Central Station.

Climate group keen on stormy debate

Plans are under way to pit outspoken climate sceptic Christopher Monckton against top New Zealand scientists in a debate designed to stir up controversy.

A climate change sceptics group is trying to arrange a visit by the high-profile British peer on the back of his trip to Australia.

Richard Treadgold, of the Climate Conversation Group, said there was support from within the group and other climate sceptic groups to bring Lord Monckton to New Zealand in the first week of August.

Finally Free From Family First's Fraudulent Fuckwit Fielding Festival Flops

theo3
Australian warmists have suffered a double defeat this month. Firstly, as reported previously, Viscount Monckton brilliantly outflanked warmists' attempts to silence him, by silencing himself as venues such as German clubs cancelled his bookings in response to Monckton's portraying climate advisor Ross Garnaut with a swastika. The final straw was that even Rugby clubs found Monckton unacceptable. Events in the UK conspired to save a final engagement speaking at the National Press Club. With a large fraction of Australian newspapers owned by Rupert Murdoch, journalists did not feel in a position to regard even Monckton as too disreputable for them.

The warmists less public defeat was the failure of what had become known as the F9 event: the Finally Free From Family First's Fraudulent Fuckwit Fielding Festival. July 1 marked the arrival of the newly elected senators and the departure of those elected in 2004, including
Steven Fielding of the Family First party. Read More...

News Limited Updates Genocide Smear

965317-genocide_large
Attempts by climate confusionists to smear climate scientists with the odium of genocide go back go back at least Peter Sawyer's 1990 book Greenhoax. Michael Crichton did the same in his appendix to State of Fear. A more personal attack came in the Wall St Journal when Fred Seitz drew the analogy with "ethnic cleansing" to accuse IPCC author Ben Santer of "scientific cleansing". (Rupert Murdoch liked the WSJ so much that he bought it.)

Last month, NSW parliamentarian
Peter Phelps has likened climate scientists to totalitarian planners. Shortly afterwards, Viscount Monckton brilliantly outflanked warmists' attempts to silence him, by silencing himself as venues cancelled his bookings in response to his portraying climate advisor Ross Garnaut with a swastika.

Predictably, the counter-meme has been to compare the confusionists to holocaust deniers or HIV-deniers. There is of course an important distinction. Comparing climate confusionists to those spread untruths about genocide is felt to be deeply offensive. In contrast, comparing climate scientists to those who actually conducted genocide is felt to be a helpful and valid comparison.

U.S., Australian navies help Climate Scientists with Research in Pirate-infested Waters

REUTERS JULY 14, 2011

SINGAPORE — Climate scientists have turned to the United States and Australian navies to deploy robotic measuring devices in the Indian Ocean where pirates have made the area too dangerous for researchers.

About one-quarter of the Indian Ocean is now off limits to climate scientists trying to complete a global network of deep ocean devices that gather data crucial to climate change studies and weather forecasts.

"We can't send anybody in that area. Research voyages have been cancelled and I know there's a report of at least one ship that hired an armed escort," said Ann Thresher, an oceanographer with Australia's Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization.

FoGT's new Evangelical Declaration on Global Warming

creation

WHAT WE BELIEVE

  • We believe Earth and its ecosystems—created by God’s intelligent design and infinite power and sustained by His faithful providence —are robust, resilient, self-regulating, and self-correcting, admirably suited for human flourishing, and displaying His glory.  Earth’s climate system is no exception. Recent global warming is one of many natural cycles of warming and cooling in geologic history.
  • We believe abundant, affordable energy is indispensable to human flourishing, particularly to societies which are rising out of abject poverty and the high rates of disease and premature death that accompany it. With present technologies, fossil and nuclear fuels are indispensable if energy is to be abundant and affordable.
  • We believe mandatory reductions in carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gas emissions, achievable mainly by greatly reduced use of fossil fuels, will greatly increase the price of energy and harm economies.

Petro Engineers in Climatology Pt. 3

TURN YOUR ATTENTION TO THE CLIMATE CHANGE ELEPHANT

When it comes to the global warming debate, let’s forget the red herrings and minutiae and focus on the elephant in the room — temperature data and mean averages. Earth does not have just one temperature. It is not in global thermodynamic equilibrium, neither within itself nor its surroundings.

Just because we can compute something analogous to a ‘‘global temperature’’ does not mean that it is meaningful. Individual telephone numbers are both meaningful and useful, while averages of telephone numbers in a directory have no meaning.

APEGGA IGNORES ITS DUTY OVER CLIMATE CHANGE MISINFORMATION

APEGGA IGNORES ITS DUTY OVER CLIMATE CHANGE MISINFORMATION

Geophysics is a broad discipline that includes atmospheric and planetary physics, as well as the more engineering-like aspects of geophysical evaluations and mapping. The latter are commonly assumed to be the entire practice of geophysics.

When our provincial act placed geophysical practice under the auspices of APEGGA, the Association was mandated to protect the public from unprofessional and unskilled practice over the entire spectrum of geophysical endeavours. This includes atmospheric physics, and therefore APEGGA is mandated to verify that none of its members have exceeded their knowledge base and presented false information to the government on climate.

Is Climate Change Caused by Solar Inertial Motion?

chara2010

From our Friends the Friends of Science - and as endorsed by Barry Cooper:

Solar Inertial Motion refers to the movement (predictable “wobble” of the sun about the centre of gravity of the solar system under the influence of the orbits of the giant planets (mainly Jupiter and Saturn). It forms the basis for a hypothesis by Czech geophysicist Ivanka Charvátová that correlates cycles of solar activity (and thus Earth’s climate) to SIM patterns. She discovered that every 179 years the Sun’s motion returns to a regular “trefoil” pattern (lasting about 50 years) interspersed with 62-90 year periods when the motion is chaotic. During the trefoils sunspot activity (and Earth’s temperature) are maximized, while the reverse is true during the chaotic periods (e.g., Wolf, Spörer, Maunder and Dalton Minima). According to SIM researchers, solar activity and temperatures in the first half of the 21st century should decrease.

Global Warming Making Earth Fat

Fat_Earth
An article in press in AGU journal Geophysical Research Letters describes how the satellite-based Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE) has detected that melting ice from Greenland and Antarctica is being redistributed as liquid water around the equator, providing yet more proof that climate change global warming is bad for the health of the planet. “The oblate spheroid is rapidly becoming an obese spheroid, and obesity demands immediate action, or at the very least moral panic”, says FoGT Director of Scientific Content, Karl Freiherr von Monckhausen.

Because GRACE can
detect changes in the global distribution of mass, the cause of the increased waistline can be correctly attributed. We at FoGT had earlier speculated about an increase in planetary density due to the human population having become thicker with time, disagreeing with our colleague the famous blog climatologist Baron von Monckhofen who interpreted an increase in population mass. However, GRACE has now convincingly demonstrated that neither density nor mass are being gained, but mass is rather being rearranged. Read More...

More Spanking for 'The Coop'

Not warm to Barry
BY JOSH SILBERG, CALGARY HERALD JULY 4, 2011
 
Re: "Scientists grow cool to global warming theory," Barry Cooper, Opinion, June 29.

volcano3
Among the many regurgitated, baseless claims political science professor Barry Cooper makes in his article on climate change, one in particular stood out. His claim that volcanoes emit more carbon dioxide than all humans ever was based on evidence submitted by -somebody.

A simple search finds peer-reviewed scientific articles
refuting that claim. But, when you have a source like "somebody," why would you question it? If a student in one of his classes submitted an essay with such a reference, what mark would they get?

No Climate Debate: Friends of Science twist Everything

Merchants-of-Doubt_591
From our Friends the Friends of Science:

Tom Harris, executive director of the International Climate Science Coalition, reports on an end-of-May meeting of a thousand geoscientists from Canada, the US and other countries in Ottawa. The lead symposium was Earth Climate: Past, Present and Future, and though there were many presentations, only one was consistent with IPCC claims of dangerous AGW. According to the symposium chairman, people on the IPCC side will not debate. Mr. Harris has been attempting to get the Canadian Meteorological and Ocean Society to participate in a public, climate-science debate, but the CMOS, and other climate alarmists, continues to maintain their narrow-mindedness that the science is settled and debate unnecessary.

Schweinsgruber says: How can one
debate science? Science is a matter of facts and not a matter of opinion. And: there was no ‘lead’ symposium at this meeting. So if you are left with the impression that the most important scientific urge of Canada’s geological community is climate change denial, then you got plimered! Also, the symposium in question was not organized by Tom Harris but by Andrew Miall from the University of Toronto. In summary, Tom Harris is a mechanical engineer, who has absolutely nothing to do with climatology or the Geological Association of Canada, in as much as the Friends of Science have nothing to do with science.

Barry Cooper supports Water Dowser

Clouded 'science'
BY JAMES K. FINLEY, CALGARY HERALD JULY 2, 2011

Re:
"Scientists grow cool to global warming theory," Barry Cooper, Opinion, June 29.

It's depressing that cranky old men like
Barry Cooper feel it necessary to spout off about matters that are far outside their area of expertise. But since he is a political "scientist," I guess he feels that he has the credentials. If he's wrong, he won't be around to apologize, nor will it matter.

Predictably, he cites fools to support his inflammatory opinions. With his dismissive: "And yet, science moves on," he champions geophysicist Nils-Axel Moerner in "flatly contradicting the IPCC predictions of an ice-free Arctic."

Moerner is another cranky old man, who, among other things, believes in the metaphysical art of
water dowsing, and who was elected "Deceiver of the Year" by Foreningen Vetenskap och Folkbildning in 1995 for "organizing university courses about dowsing." Trust the deceivers.
