The opinion of God
I love all the pretty graphs, more graphs I say! The trajectory of the entire planets future can fit on a graph.
Interesting article from emeritus professor Garth Paltridge, who used to be the chief research scientist at the CSIRO's division of atmospheric research.
https://quadrant.org.au/magazine/201...limate-change/In the light of all this, we have at least to consider the possibility that the scientific establishment behind the global warming issue has been drawn into the trap of seriously overstating the climate problem—or, what is much the same thing, of seriously understating the uncertainties associated with the climate problem—in its effort to promote the cause. It is a particularly nasty trap in the context of science, because it risks destroying, perhaps for centuries to come, the unique and hard-won reputation for honesty which is the basis of society’s respect for scientific endeavour. Trading reputational capital for short-term political gain isn’t the most sensible way of going about things.

If I were to say that the increase in ice in Antarctica (which is true) showed that global cooling was accelerating - I would be misrepresenting the facts.

That article received quite widespread publicity. So trade winds have caused cooling. Does that mean that trade winds can also cause warming? What is driving the trade winds? The answer is they do not know.
England also says the following in that paper:
- the world might only warm by 2.1 degrees C this century (which is well below the original predictions)
- there has been a pause in warming that 95% of models did not predict.
But I guess you won't believe England on those statements because they are in line with what skeptics have been saying. ie. the models are wrong and they exaggerate the warming.
Do you trust England with those comments?
