Why do True-Believer Alarmists cling to the Falsified AGW hypothesis?
Carolyn GregoireSourceIn a HuffPo piece, Carolyn Gregoire, wrote, under the heading and sub-heading:Why Some Conservatives Can’t Accept That Climate Change Is RealIt’s never really been about the science.Photoshopped ImageMaybe it wasn’t Carolyn’s headings and the photoshopped image that headed her article, but her opinion piece is easy to tear apart. And her piece wasn’t about the science!She begins with POTUS Trump’s quoted statement:”I am not a believer. Unless somebody can prove something to me, I believe there’s weather.”And to try to tear down POTUS Trump’s statement, Carolyn pulls out the many times exposed as false statement – “97 percent of climate scientists insist climate change is real.”When will these clowns realise that this is a flawed statistic?See: (iner alia)97% NON-CONSENSUS with CAGW;The Consensus Myth: 97% of NothingThe Myth of the Climate Change ‘97%”97% Of Climate Scientists Agree’ Is 100% WrongThe “97% Consensus” Debunked yet again.And of course, the greatest deception of the fake 97% consensus – the Cook et al piece that was so flawed:0.3% CONSENSUS, NOT 97.1%The latest paper apparently showing 97% endorsement of a consensus that more than half of recent global warming was anthropogenic really shows only 0.3% endorsement of that now-dwindling consensus.Carolyn continues:Sea Levels are rising:Yes, we are still coming out of the Little Ice Age (LIA). The Little Ice Age was from ~1300 to ~1870. As Land Ice melts, so sea level rises (SLR). However, the rate of SLR has slowed down.Global temperatures are rising:The article was written in November 2015. Carolyn says: this year is on track to become the hottest on record. Well, if you count proxies for the MWP, Roman Warm Period, The Minoan Warm Period, there was no way that 2015 was the hottest on record.However, in the satellite era, it could have been an insignificantly warm year. However, as James Taylor explains:Forget what global warming activists would lead you to believe – 2015 was not even close to the hottest year on record. Satellite temperature readings going back to 1979 show 1998 was by far the warmest year in the satellite era, followed by 2010. 2015 comes in third. And these results are only for the period since 1979. Glaciers are meltingYep, Glaciers are melting as we come out of the little ice age. A NASA study that came out one month before Carolyn’s piece:A new NASA study says that an increase in Antarctic snow accumulation that began 10,000 years ago is currently adding enough ice to the continent to outweigh the increased losses from its thinning glaciers.I would have to ask Carolyn Gregoire:How is it possible to deny this overwhelming evidence that the falsified man-made global warming hoax is a scam?AND what do the Alarmists do?From Carolyn again: They seek out information that confirms their beliefs — and ignore anything that challenges them.Yet, although there has been a plateau in the warming for ~20 years, they DENY the plateau and create excuses for it.Many papers have been published by the “Plateau Deniers” to try to explain why there has been no warming for around 20 years. Many Alarmists are fudging the data to erase the plateau.All they are doing are disgracing the name of science to push their political agenda.What a sorry state of affairs.
