Does chitin have carbonates in it or just polysaccharides?

Here's some fake news that will boost the claim of a new ice age, told you it was coming much soon than anyone anticipated. :rofl :rofl :rofl

This year may see even bigger disasters, especially if a number of glaciers collapse during the northern summer. Then when the next southern summer comes along, we may see one of Antarctica's biggest glacial ice sheets slide into the sea. The rate of movement to the ocean off all ice sheets and glaciers are accelerating rapidly, which means sea rises of well over 2 metres may occur within the next couple of years and then the shit will l hit the fan for everyone.
They are going to build an all weather all seasons landing strip on Casey station, because there are now area's where there is no snow all year round.

Where I live, the sea temp at this time of the year was always around 12-14deg C, now it's 18-20deg C. All the kelp beds have died, the crayfish have soft shells from the growing acidity of the ocean and many fish species have disappeared.

"The Antarctic has registered a temperature of more than 20C (68F) for the first time on record, prompting fears of climate instability in the world’s greatest repository of ice."

Judith Curry has made a prediction for 2020-2040: gonna cool.

Of course, she predicted that for 2000-2020 too. She reckons due to get more vulcanism. You can’t predict that.

Why do people believe in this crap?

Yup, when I bothered to read the comments of the cretins posting to a Dubyne monetised YouTube a fairly constant refrain was “We know something other people don’t.”

Yes, deniers do give governments the ability to just keep going down the fossil fuel burning path. That is why I battle them on Twitter, show denialism is not universal and has no science behind it.

Ice age now is little minds, frightened at what is happening, invent stories, GSM means Ice Age! to stop them being scared. World is still warming tho. A GSM will cause just the tiniest blip in the temperature record.

I suspect for a significant percent of those who deny global warming more is involved than an attempt to ignore a terrifying future. Our species has always had (and always will have?) a number of deluded individuals desperately wanting to believe they’re in possession of ’secret knowledge’ the rest of us can’t see. This time around it’s worse than anything like a flat earth theory. The power such idiocy hands to governments thinking only up to the next election threatens us all, even the denialists.

PhilPerth tries to inject some facts into the debate. But facts are not what is wanted there, feelings rule there.

Yes, Mann v Ball was still in the discovery stage. The judge took pity on Ball “an old, sick, irrelevant nobody” (Ball’s lawyers’ own words!) and terminated the case as judges can do when cases drag on too long. Terminated, not dismissed. No trial, no vindication for either party.

Mann’s data and computer code are here and have been since 2003:
http://www.meteo.psu.edu/~mann/shared/research/MANNETAL98/

One of the most pernicious lies about Mann is that he refuses to supply his data and code. The above link shows that that is false! A Mod should not allow lies to stand, over to you Booby!

Now to Valentina Zharkova, Professor of Mathematics at Northumbria University. She studied two cycles of the sun and thought she knew it all. She developed a simplistic model but when she tried to demonstrate it it did not hindcast known past GSMs. Her model is simplistic and worthless. There is a huge PubPeer thread (look up the “And then there’s Physics” blog run by Ken Rice—he devotes a few pages to the Zharkova saga and has a link to the Pubpeer thread.

Now to the ice age nonsense.

1. A GSM cools globally by 0.2°C tops (do some googling and you will find that I am, as always, right.)

2. AGW warms by 0.2°C per decade. Plenty of authoritative charts by NASA/NOAA/MetOffice/Japanese Met organisation etc.

So a GSM by itself cannot cause what is misleadingly termed a Little Ice Age.

So what did cause the LIA? This was pretty much a North America/Europe event, triggered by huge volcanic eruptions and maintained by increase in albedo, flow of cold meltwater from the Arctic entering the North Atlantic and stopping or slowing the Gulf Stream. Again, none of this would cool us now by enough to get anywhere near LIA conditions—and AGW will continue warming the globe a smidge under 0.2°C per decade.

There will not be another LIA again.

Not only that, there will likely not be a major ice age again. Milankovitch Cycles, perturbations in Earths orbit and inclination cause less insolation above 65°N so freezing the Arctic and causing major ice ages. However, Milankovitch Cycles are weak and only caused the ice ages when CO2 had dropped below 300ppm. It is currently 412ppm and climbing—no more regular major ice ages.

You watch Booby will be too gutless to post this. He has already lied about one of my posts in the last few hours.

Booby can read this then apologise for slandering me:

Here is my apology

“I am sorry you are brainless fuckwits Booby and Ajax. I would suggest a course in critical thinking for you two but you don’t actually think, do you?”

Re: New Ice Age

Post by HBS Guy » 10 Feb 2020, 16:26

Booby says I am a follower of Mann, like the moron used to say I was an Al Gore fan. No evidence for either statement of course, Booby is not into thinking or evidence, just feelings.

Mann was not defeated by Ball—there was no actual fucking trial you zombie!

The willful ignorance blatantly displayed by that clown Ajax in OzPol is getting on my tits!

For FUCKS sake Ajax, Mann did not lose the case against Tim Ball: the case was still in discovery, not trial (get an adult to explain this) when the court took pity on “an old, sick, irrelevant fool” (the words of Ball’s lawyers!) and terminated the case. Mann had what he wanted—a retraction and an apology from the website that published Ball’s diatribe—and let the case drag on (easy as Ball had several long absences for medical procedures.

Nothing Mann had worked on or published was affected in any way. There was no trial, no judgement, a case that had dragged on too long was terminated because the judge took pity on Ball.

AGW was validated in 1949 in studies for the US Navy and Air Force!

Booby if you have donated to Dubyne I would see about getting that money back. You will never get back the time you wasted watching those stupid videos by the charlatan and reading the ill informed comments to them.

Don’t double down on that wasted time by believing another charlatan.

Re: New Ice Age

Post by HBS Guy » 06 Feb 2020, 17:50

Maybe Booby should read:
https://climatefeedback.org/we-are-not-heading-towards-a-mini-ice-age-contrary-to-claims-in-some-media/

and this:
https://www.livescience.com/amp/61716-sun-cooling-global-warming.html

and:
https://t.co/4hfhQYROQO?amp=1

Probably beyond his comprehension but he should stick to it, finish at least one of those articles.

The case for no mini ice age because of a GSM can be made fairly simply:

1. We are rather warmer now than during the Medieval Warm Period.

2. AGW is warming the globe at about 0.2°C per decade.

3. Cooling from MWP to LIA was no more than 0.5°C, not huge. The same cooling factors now would not take us back to LIA type temperatures—we have warmed 1.2°C since 1880, about 0.8°C of that since the end of the 1970s so that cooling would only take us back to the 1980s level temperature.

4. A GSM cools by 0.2°C tops—note from point 2 that AGW warms by that amount in a decade and will throughout a GSM.

5. A GSM is the sun emitting a little less UV. That would not stop AGW warming the globe. Deniers do not realise this but their heads are filled with nonsense from charlatans.

6. With heat from the oceans buffering any temporary cooling and AGW still going it is likely we wouldn’t even notice a GSM when one happens. That is unlikely to happen in the next 2-3 decades. When it happens AGS has warmed us by at least 3 x 0.2 = 0.6°C, even less likely an ice age will result.

As the Himalayan snowfields retreat and meltwater that waters 1/4 of the worlds population diminishes I expect a war, probably nuclear, between India and China.

David Dubyne is no authority on anything much, could give masterclasses in grifting and scamming I suppose. Zharkova’s model did not work, Booby, it could not hindcast the Wolf, Maunder or Dalton GSMs. Zharkova is no authority on the sun or climate!


It will be interesting to see how certain parties react when reality catches up with them.
In fact the farmers around me, no matter what their view on global warming was a few years ago, are all terrified of what they are now having to deal with, let alone where it’s going to take us. It may sound smug but I suggest our species is about to achieve the extinction it deserves if not through climate change then through the political instabilities it triggers and the resultant wars, very possibly nuclear, biological,chemical or any combination of the three.

Has Princess Gobby already given up on the Zharkova nonsense? John Taverner did rather put a dampener on the ice age bullshit by showing Cycle 25 will be the same as Cycle 24, no GSM.

Will the Princess ever face reality? Doubt it.
