THE HOCKEY SCHTICK: Warmists admit they sound sanctimonious & hypocritical for flying to international conferences

An editorial titled "Guilt Trip" published in the May 2012 edition of Nature Climate Change admits the extensive practice of climate scientists taking unnecessary, fossil-fueled flights to international conferences "is a fraught area where it is difficult not to sound sanctimonious or even open to the charge of hypocrisy." The piece notes, "many have started to seriously question whether the extent of travel to international conferences is defensible." Furthermore, the editorial admits that trying to ausauge warmist guilt by buying carbon offsets "does not in itself stop or necessarily even reduce global emissions in the longer term." No mention is made of the digital age, which offers the 'guilt-free' alternative of international conferences and communication via the internet.

PNAS Study Shows Powerful Correlation Between Sun And Climate Over The Last 9000 Years

The IPCC thinks the sun plays nary a role on climate and that anthropogenic factors explain almost the entire warming since 1850.

It’s been completely ignored that Gerard Bond was able to show more than 10 years ago that the last 10,000 years have been characterized by a global temperature roller coaster that runs up and down in sync with solar activity (Bond et al. 2001).

Has CO2 warmed the planet at all in the last 50 years? It’s harder to tell than you think. « JoNova: Science, carbon, climate and tax

Even most skeptics agree that the world has been warming during the last 50 years, but there is apparently no significant underlying warming trend in 46 out of 47 years of data. Something decidedly unusual happened to the world in 1977 and we don’t know for sure what it was. The world got warmer, and the change “stuck”. But there were no extra emissions of CO2 in that year, so there is no reason to pin this to CO2.
