You see this behavior not only in science, you see it on college campuses and religion.

Substitute the word population control for climate control. Either way its population control.

Re: NASA Study Indicates Antarctica is Gaining More Ice Than It's Losing -

@Vassago:

While I am a skeptic on the cause of the climate issues, I stand side-by-side with you on the health effects of pollution. I have tried to make that clear in this and related discussions. When it comes to climate cause and effect, there are very few articles that don't use correlation. But correlation is not causation.

For the last 50+ years, however, strict mechanistic pathways of "pollution causing a specific disease" have been published. In my original training as a chemist, I worked with a professor who was researching specifics of phosphate-based pollutants and ways of more precisely detecting them in minute quantity quickly. FYI, the phosphates come up in certain weed killers. He wasn't my primary advisor but he WAS on my committee and he would "borrow" me when computer-related stuff came up.

So I'm all for cleaning up pollution. Not because it will help the climate; I'm not at all convinced about that. But it WILL help the long-term health of my grandsons. And I will hope that whether anyone agrees with me on climate issues, they will recognize that I want the same kind of cleanup they want. Just a different motive, but the same result.

Re: NASA Study Indicates Antarctica is Gaining More Ice Than It's Losing -

The BBC website today published a very clear summary of climate changes over the past 140 years or so together with other relevant data
https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-46384067

That article doesn't include the increase in Antarctic sea ice but there are many other articles which cover possible reasons for that. For example
https://insideclimatenews.org/news/3...global-warming
https://phys.org/news/2013-10-antarctic-sea-ice.html

It is of course worth noting that the decrease in Arctic sea ice is significantly greater than the increase in Antarctic sea ice

Re: NASA Study Indicates Antarctica is Gaining More Ice Than It's Losing -

Surprising what one can run across when browsing. I ran accross the following video by Ivar Giaever "Global Warming is Pseudoscience". He causaly touched on a few points that I have been alluding to in the thread: Population Control - An inconvenient truth. So I was thrilled that he did so. Basically, Giaever contends that CO2 emissions are overrated as a principal cause of global warming and that we need to consider, in part, the (adverse) human effects on the environment. Such as: population increase, urbanization, and deforestation.

To clarify Giaever's theme a bit, he does not consider human impact to be significant either. What he does suggest, is that those who push global warming need to consider other possible contributors to global warming, such as human impact, but they ignore this potential factor.

Additionally, Giaever contends that if one takes a long view of the Earth's heating/cooling cycles, that the current rise in global temperatures is within "normal" patterns. He also tossed in the unanswerable concept of what is the ideal temperature of the Earth? So we shouldn't be going nuts over current climate change (global warming).

Since posting, this video popped-up: Lord Christopher Monckton - Global Warming is a Hoax

Thanks for the references, Steve. It is time that more people publicly denounced the "poor practices" (I'll avoid calling it pseudoscience) of the "Global Warming" crowd.

Re: NASA Study Indicates Antarctica is Gaining More Ice Than It's Losing -

Ivar Giaver has zero credentials in anything related to climate science.
The rapidly rising temperatures are not within the normal patterns.
The notion of debating the ideal temperature of planet as though wormer might be better is a concept only raised by ignorant fools.

Monkton has no scientific credentials at all. Moreover he is a despicable person.

It appears young Frenchman would rather have a baguette on their table today, then worry about climate change tomorrow.

Re: NASA Study Indicates Antarctica is Gaining More Ice Than It's Losing -

Found this YouTube article that I think is relevant to the climate change talk.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=phaBUQ3NU1w

It will take about 5 1/2 minutes of your time. I knew that SOMEONE had to have looked at the long-term cycles. Now I've found something that makes sense to me based on tree ring history, ice cores, and other long-term observations. OK, I'll admit that I have a bias towards believing this article's premises and conclusions. But this kind of evidence is not so susceptible to chance correlations or accidental parallel correlations.

Doc

I did watch the last two videos you posted / discussed here & at the Mind Tavern. IIRC, the first was an interview on Fox with a scientist who had worked all his life for organisations such as the Cato Institute funded by the coal industry. The second was a talk by Ivar Gleavar who is a Nobel Physicist in quantum tunneling but with absolutely no experience or qualifications in climatology. Both were highly selective with the facts presented.

Its more than a bias. You have been selectively posting videos which are from climate change deniers and ignore any opposing evidence. I haven't watched any of these 3 videos yet but I would be very surprised if these are more balanced than the previous ones you posted

Talking Re: NASA Study Indicates Antarctica is Gaining More Ice Than It's Losing -

OMG! CATO "funded by the coal industry". Really? LOL

Did you associate Cato's foundation assistance by the Koch brothers - so the research is automatically wrong?
Or is it because the billionaire industrialist Koch brothers, gave a $25 million grant to the United Negro College Fund? President Obama personally and publicly recognized that it saved this valued institution.
Kochs gives to Nova(PBS) and Smithsonian Human Evolution among other institutions that freely promote generally one-sided global warming theory.

The School of Mines in Golden Colorado has huge support from all mining industries. Where does their research fall on a moral judgement?

What about the Royalty of England? in 1800 Britain produced about 90% of the world output of coal. The Royal Family did build up a nice tidy stash of profits that carried the family forward from that? The history there of children chained and abused are historic. Should we burn all of the research funded however small or indirect from this source too?

I think Tree rings are too short of a time period. Tree rings are affected by different aspects of CO2, sunlight (e.g. volcanic ash clouds), water and other factors. The research on our Sun, a variable star, counting all radiation including magnetic indicates a larger impact on the Earth. Of course that research is funded by NASA and other science groups that receive funds from taxing oil/gas, coal, and other sources. So lets ignore them too.

Another nail in the coffin of "man-made global warming"...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AA3OA_2S4QY

John Coleman, a meteorologist with some credentials on atmospheric science, points out that the models used for the global warming doom-and-gloom predictions have TOTALLY failed to predict global temperature profiles. Their model is WRONG and is (in the technical or scientific sense) DISPROVED. I.e. no correlation to reality.

Re: NASA Study Indicates Antarctica is Gaining More Ice Than It's Losing -

Galaxiom, the ultimate proof of this is to see what happens in 2019 and 2020. We should clean up toxic pollutants and if this also means cleaning up CO2 as a health issue, I am for it. But the math used by the gloom-and-doom crowd regarding global warming / global climate change simply DOES NOT PREDICT REALITY. The temperatures continue to diverge - downward - from the predictions made by those IPCC equations.

I think I have said all along that there were problems with the math. At the time, I was just uneasy and therefore uncertain. It made no sense to me. Now I know why.

The predictions on global warming were made based on the OLDEST FALLACY THERE IS. If you make a prediction using method XYZ, you presume that XYZ is appropriate for use in that context. But even a linear correlation would find a straight line across a buckshot dispersion pattern on graph paper. Math ALWAYS gives an answer. It is just that to get the right answer you have to use the right math.

When you look at historical temperature cycles, you realize that what happened was that the predictions were made on ONE SIDE of what is essentially a bell curve. What SHOULD have been analyzed using some variant of Fourier analysis was instead analyzed using some formula that presumed a logarithmic growth pattern. The error is that it focused on a NARROW subset of available long-term temperature data.

Early on in this discussion I knew that there was a problem in that people were neglecting Earth's natural temperature cycles based on solar activity. But I didn't have precise enough data. Someone else, however, DID - and some of those links I have included showed the long-term and short term cycles in proper context.

Greg, I have always been the skeptic. Now I feel that enough is on the table that I have a stronger feeling about my position. Al Gore was looking for an excuse to tax your carbon footprint because he's a tax-and-spend Democrat from the word GO. And it didn't hurt for him to get acclaim and recognition and lucrative speaking engagements out of the bargain. Mr. "I invented the Internet" has ALWAYS been full of himself and full of something else, too.
