THE HOCKEY SCHTICK: New paper finds the 'fingerprint of man-made global warming' doesn't exist
A new peer-reviewed paper published in Energy & Environment confirms from the latest satellite data that the tropospheric "hot spot" or so-called "fingerprint of man-made global warming" predicted by climate models does not exist. The authors find surface warming exceeds tropospheric warming, the opposite of model predictions, suggesting there are fundamental flaws in the physical assumptions of the models.Some more thoughts on advocacy in climate science | Doug McNeall's blog
If you are a climate scientist, you are not here to save the planet. It is incredibly arrogant to see yourself as some kind of planetary doctor, able to save the planet. You cannot save the planet. You can (probably incrementally) increase the sum of human knowledge about the planet. That is a good and extremely valuable thing.Climate Change on Track to Occur Faster, Say Woods Senior Fellows | Stanford Woods Institute
Two Stanford climate scientists report the planet is undergoing one of the largest climate changes in the past 65 million years, and it's on pace to occur at a rate 10 times faster than any change in that period. [So how fast was the climate changing during the century starting 50 million years ago?]PJ Lifestyle » Climate Change and the Problem of ‘Press Release Science’
All these pressures lead to press release science: glowing or terrifying reports of what could be, or could be prevented, if only some particular research is funded. These are sales pitches, intended not to report results, but to attract further funding.
