Alarmist global warming claims melt under scientific scrutiny

June 30, 2007
BY JAMES M. TAYLOR

In his new book, The Assault on Reason, Al Gore pleads, "We must stop tolerating the rejection and distortion of science. We must insist on an end to the cynical use of pseudo-studies known to be false for the purpose of intentionally clouding the public's ability to discern the truth." Gore repeatedly asks that science and reason displace cynical political posturing as the central focus of public discourse.

If Gore really means what he writes, he has an opportunity to make a difference by leading by example on the issue of global warming.

A cooperative and productive discussion of global warming must be open and honest regarding the science. Global warming threats ought to be studied and mitigated, and they should not be deliberately exaggerated as a means of building support for a desired political position.

Many of the assertions Gore makes in his movie, ''An Inconvenient Truth,'' have been refuted by science, both before and after he made them. Gore can show sincerity in his plea for scientific honesty by publicly acknowledging where science has rebutted his claims.

For example, Gore claims that Himalayan glaciers are shrinking and global warming is to blame. Yet the September 2006 issue of the American Meteorological Society's Journal of Climate reported, "Glaciers are growing in the Himalayan Mountains, confounding global warming alarmists who recently claimed the glaciers were shrinking and that global warming was to blame."

Gore claims the snowcap atop Africa's Mt. Kilimanjaro is shrinking and that global warming is to blame. Yet according to the November 23, 2003, issue of Nature magazine, "Although it's tempting to blame the ice loss on global warming, researchers think that deforestation of the mountain's foothills is the more likely culprit. Without the forests' humidity, previously moisture-laden winds blew dry. No longer replenished with water, the ice is evaporating in the strong equatorial sunshine."

Gore claims global warming is causing more tornadoes. Yet the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change stated in February that there has been no scientific link established between global warming and tornadoes.

Gore claims global warming is causing more frequent and severe hurricanes. However, hurricane expert Chris Landsea published a study on May 1 documenting that hurricane activity is no higher now than in decades past. Hurricane expert William Gray reported just a few days earlier, on April 27, that the number of major hurricanes making landfall on the U.S. Atlantic coast has declined in the past 40 years. Hurricane scientists reported in the April 18 Geophysical Research Letters that global warming enhances wind shear, which will prevent a significant increase in future hurricane activity.

Gore claims global warming is causing an expansion of African deserts. However, the Sept. 16, 2002, issue of New Scientist reports, "Africa's deserts are in 'spectacular' retreat . . . making farming viable again in what were some of the most arid parts of Africa."

Gore argues Greenland is in rapid meltdown, and that this threatens to raise sea levels by 20 feet. But according to a 2005 study in the Journal of Glaciology, "the Greenland ice sheet is thinning at the margins and growing inland, with a small overall mass gain." In late 2006, researchers at the Danish Meteorological Institute reported that the past two decades were the coldest for Greenland since the 1910s.

Gore claims the Antarctic ice sheet is melting because of global warming. Yet the Jan. 14, 2002, issue of Nature magazine reported Antarctica as a whole has been dramatically cooling for decades. More recently, scientists reported in the September 2006 issue of the British journal Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society Series A: Mathematical, Physical, and Engineering Sciences, that satellite measurements of the Antarctic ice sheet showed significant growth between 1992 and 2003. And the U.N. Climate Change panel reported in February 2007 that Antarctica is unlikely to lose any ice mass during the remainder of the century.

Each of these cases provides an opportunity for Gore to lead by example in his call for an end to the distortion of science. Will he rise to the occasion? Only time will tell.

lets consider the source and who pays them. exxon mobile spent 19 million to disprove the human cause. noone disputes that there are warming and cooling cycles that occur naturally, with or without man. but there is also conclusive proof that man contributes the lions share of green house gasses. also man creates all signifigant polltants that aren't airborne. toxic dumps etc. poisoned water etc. the dumb thing about fools like shit pacnguy is that he and his unfortunate relatives have to live in a polluted world as well as those who care about children and their future. they will suffer the same fate as the rest of us. more unfortunately it will be the poorest countries, which contribute the least to the pollutants, which will suffer the most.

2005 did not see the biggest falloff of an ice-sheet like in 2006 it did. You should also notice that just because it has been colder, that precipitation has not been the usual so, no net gain of glacier buildup.

Antarctic Ice Sheet Is Melting Rapidly
New Study Warns Of Rising Sea Levels

By Juliet Eilperin
Washington Post Staff Writer
Friday, March 3, 2006; Page A01

The Antarctic ice sheet is losing as much as 36 cubic miles of ice a year in a trend that scientists link to global warming, according to a new paper that provides the first evidence that the sheet's total mass is shrinking significantly.

The new findings, which are being published today in the journal Science, suggest that global sea level could rise substantially over the next several centuries.


It is one of a slew of scientific papers in recent weeks that have sought to gauge the impact of climate change on the world's oceans and lakes. Just last month two researchers reported that Greenland's glaciers are melting into the sea twice as fast as previously believed, and a separate paper in Science today predicts that by the end of this century lakes and streams on one-fourth of the African continent could be drying up because of higher temperatures.

The new Antarctic measurements, using data from two NASA satellites called the Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE), found that the amount of water pouring annually from the ice sheet into the ocean -- equivalent to the amount of water the United States uses in three months -- is causing global sea level to rise by 0.4 millimeters a year. The continent holds 90 percent of the world's ice, and the disappearance of even its smaller West Antarctic ice sheet could raise worldwide sea levels by an estimated 20 feet.

"The ice sheet is losing mass at a significant rate," said Isabella Velicogna, the study's lead author and a research scientist at Colorado University at Boulder's Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences. "It's a good indicator of how the climate is changing. It tells us we have to pay attention."

Richard Alley, a Pennsylvania State University glaciologist who has studied the Antarctic ice sheet but was not involved in the new research, said more research is needed to determine if the shrinkage is a long-term trend, because the new report is based on just three years of data. "One person's trend is another person's fluctuation," he said.

But Alley called the study significant and "a bit surprising" because a major international scientific panel predicted five years ago that the Antarctic ice sheet would gain mass this century as higher temperatures led to increased snowfall.

"It looks like the ice sheets are ahead of schedule" in terms of melting, Alley said. "That's a wake-up call. We better figure out what's going on."

Velicogna acknowledged that it is hard to predict how fast the ice sheet will melt in the future but said, "I don't expect it's going to stop in the next couple of years."

Scientists have been debating whether the Antarctic ice sheet is expanding or shrinking overall, because the center of the sheet tends to gain mass through snowfall whereas the coastal regions are more vulnerable to melting.

Velicogna and her co-author, University of Colorado at Boulder physics professor John Wahr, based their measurements on data from the two GRACE satellites that circle the world more than a dozen times a day at an altitude of 310 miles. The satellites measure variations in Earth's mass and gravitational pull: Increases or decreases in the Antarctic ice sheet's mass change the distance between the satellites as they fly over the region.

"The strength of GRACE is that we were able to assess the entire Antarctic region in one fell swoop to determine if it was gaining or losing mass," Wahr said.

But some scientists remain unconvinced. Oregon state climatologist George Taylor noted that sea ice in some areas of Antarctica is expanding and part of the region is getting colder, despite computer models that would predict otherwise.

"The Antarctic is really a puzzle," said Taylor, who writes for the Web site TSCDaily, which is partly financed by fossil fuel companies that oppose curbs on greenhouse gases linked to climate change. "A lot more research is needed to understand the degree of climate and ice trends in and around the Antarctic."

At the other end of the temperature spectrum, two South African researchers are reporting today in Science that their computer models indicate that by 2100 climate change may rob the south and west of Africa and areas in the upper Nile region of a significant portion of their current water supply. Warming may reduce the rainfall needed to replenish up to 25 percent of Africa's surface water, said Maarten de Wit and Jacek Stankiewicz at the University of Cape Town in Rondebosch, South Africa.

"Water is essential to human survival," they wrote, "and changes in its supply can potentially have devastating implications, particularly in Africa, where much of the population relies on local rivers for water."

Congressional Democrats, including Sen. John F. Kerry (Mass.) and Rep. Henry A. Waxman (Calif.) said yesterday that the two new papers show that the United States must act quickly to impose mandatory limits on carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases. The Bush administration opposes such curbs on the grounds that they could hurt the country's economy and has instead invested money on new technology to limit greenhouse emissions and further climate science research.

"Climate change is not just someone else's concern but a very real threat to the lives and livelihood of people across the globe," Kerry said.


Each of these cases provides an opportunity for Gore to lead by example in his call for an end to the distortion of science. Will he rise to the occasion? Only time will tell.

PAC, you've been posting some really good threads lately. This is one of them. The subject needs to be debated because of so much disinfo. I'll add this in response to global warming and for global COOLING!

Global warming has finally been explained: the Earth is getting hotter because the Sun is burning more brightly than at any time during the past 1,000 years, according to new research. A study by Swiss and German scientists suggests that increasing radiation from the sun is responsible for recent global climate changes […] Dr Solanki said that the brighter Sun and higher levels of "greenhouse gases", such as carbon dioxide, both contributed to the change in the Earth's temperature but it was impossible to say which had the greater impact.

As the underwater volcanoes heat the oceans, the rate of evaporation of the ocean water increases. As the evaporation increases, it increases the amount of moisture rising into the sky. With more moisture in the sky, the amount of precipitation must therefore also increase ... When this increased precipitation begins falling in the winter, you have the makings of an ice age ........

Our seas, heated by underwater volcanism, are leading us directly into the next ice age . . . and we don’t even know it.´

"That´s what El Ni&#65533;o is all about," Felix explained . "Warmer seas send excess moisture into the sky, leading to increased precipitation. .....

The bottom line here is cold, frigid air keeps driving south from the polar regions which the Global Warming hucksters keep telling us are warming and that the polar ice cap is melting. They hope we´ll forget the simple fact that a disappearing ice cap and warming polar regions cannot produce and send bitterly cold air southward.

That frigid air meets warmer air coming up from the tropics and the colder the air from the poles and the warmer the air it meets, the more violent the weather. ......

If you look around the world you´ll note a lot of tectonic activity, especially underseas where red hot magma is boiling up from under the ocean bottoms and heating the oceans. Like a teapot with boiling water shooting steam upward, the superheated oceans are sending greater and greater amounts of moisture aloft where it is converted into the precipitation that is causing record breaking massive rainstorms and blizzards.

"Published originally at EtherZone.com : republication allowed with this notice and hyperlink intact." [link to www.etherzone.com]

"In geological prospective, the case for cooling is strong ... If this interglacial age lasts no longer than a dozen earlier ones in the past million years, as recorded in deep sea sediments, we may reasonably suppose the world is about due to slide into the next ice age."

Think about it. CO2 skyrocketed 100,000 years ago and helped bring on an ice age, but has any body suggested that the CO2 levels were boosted by auto emissions or the burning of fossil fuels? Of course not -- there weren't any 100,000 years ago. There wasn't a Toyota or a backyard barbecue in sight.

Beloved Mother Nature did it all on her own.

And the snow cover at the poles has continued to grow, not melt as the global warming cult expects.

The omens are there. The iceman cometh.

Did you not have this same thread before? With the same article I mean...

I think I remember that, though perhaps someone else posted it.

Still, this is not a very good article if you are up on the actual science. This is nit picking in the dark, hoping to fool a few people not up on the fact, or "Preaching to the choir" so that people that do not want to think anything bad will ever happen can rally together and use such things as "Proof".

Here are my questions if you are going to follow this path, perhaps answering them would really be a helpful exercise.

1. Who benefits from the "Global Warming Hoax". What happens in fifteen/twenty years when nothing happens?

2. Is the data showing warming fake? If so, how come so many scientists are "in on it" how come the main body of scientists against this are "old guard" those notorious for disliking change? (On almost all topics BTW...)

3. As more and more data comes in showing not only increased temperatures, but the greater likelihood of it being man made or contributed to by man, how does this effect your theory?

4. Who is paying for the "anti-global warming" side of things? Who then is paying for the "pro Global Warming" side of things?

5. If this is all about a "Carbon Tax" what are these governments demanding such going to do when it turns out (per your theory) that nothing is happening? Don't you think they can just tax people anyway, and in fact, ARE taxing people anyway? Why force a Carbon tax, when almost anything would work? (And does work...Tea party oh Tea party wherefore art thou...)

6. How come almost NO scientific work is coming from the Anti-Global Warming side and most of the work and verification of work is coming from the other side, when the Anti-global warming side is spending nearly as much money? (Slightly more I hear, 18 Billion to around 12 billion or some such, over the course of almost a decade.)

If these can all be answered with real info, not just "cause I said so!" then I am willing to really look into these ideas, and not just disregard them because the science is not there. (Science is only as good as the scientists are honest...Either they are being honest and your theories are just hot air from unknowledgable folk OR All these scientists are liars, and some of the above questions may point to that...)
All power is largely an illusion.

:)
