The Façade Continues to Crack

Another scientist joins the flat earth, deniers of anthropogenic global warming climate change and tells the truth about Al Gore's go-to chicken little, James Hansen. Money quotes from Hansen's former boss, Dr. John S. Theon:

...climate models are useless....My own belief concerning anthropogenic climate change is that the models do not realistically simulate the climate system because there are many very important sub-grid scale processes that the models either replicate poorly or completely omit. Furthermore, some scientists have manipulated the observed data to justify their model results. In doing so, they neither explain what they have modified in the observations, nor explain how they did it. They have resisted making their work transparent so that it can be replicated independently by other scientists. This is clearly contrary to how science should be done. Thus there is no rational justification for using climate model forecasts to determine public policy.


Hansen was never muzzled even though he violated NASA’s official agency position on climate forecasting (i.e., we did not know enough to forecast climate change or mankind’s effect on it). Hansen thus embarrassed NASA by coming out with his claims of global warming in 1988 in his testimony before Congress.

It was funny to note how characteristically Hansen played the bullying victim Ann Coulter describes so well by claiming he was "muzzled by the Bush administration despite doing 1,400 on-the-job media interviews!" Some muzzle.

Pre-industrialization levels of CO2, say, 280 ppm, produce 95% of the possible 'greenhouse' effect and any increase of CO2 above 280 has almost no effect on mean global temperature. That's an inconvenient rock of a fact on which Gore's and Hansen's fantasy ship of anthropogenic global warming has struck and is rapidly foundering.


The sea is darkening, the ph is dropping, the acid rain falleth on just and unjust.

The PH of the sea is dropping as more CO2 is dissolved into the sea, but the sea is basic and is becoming slightly less basic not acidic. Not even close. Could the dropping in the basic PH value of the sea cause problems with sea creatures? Certainly. Is it? No one knows. Would it do more damage than our 'scoop up everything' big trawlers? Again unknown, but I think unlikely. I have to admit that I hate most farmed salmon, so I don't know of a remedy yet.
Acidification of the ocean is no good for coral reefs.

Manwaydan ap Llyr
Slightly less basic sea water might have a slightly bad effect on everything in the sea that creates a hard shell, but again, there are a thousand things we do that has a bad effect on coral. Having anchors dropped on them is not good for coral either. Nor is algae blooms, nor dust blown in from dry areas or a thousand other things. Life is hard and then you die and go to Hell. Thanks for the dialogue.
