abbott’s speech

For scientific papers on AGW, record happenings in the Arctic and the Greenland, Himalayan and Antarctic icesheets. Also weatherstorms and higher than average rainfalls and other extreme weather events.

Open to guest posting.

abbott’s speech

Some lies I can see:

Climate change is by no means the sole or even the most significant symptom of the changing interests and values of the West. Still, only societies with high levels of cultural amnesia – that have forgotten the scriptures about man created “in the image and likeness of God” and charged with “subduing the earth and all its creatures” – could have made such a religion out of it.

Subdue, maybe—tried to subdue a volcano recently? The science of AGW has nothing to do with scripture or religion. God does not exist so fuck that shit!

Beware the pronouncement, “the science is settled”. It’s the spirit of the Inquisition, the thought-police down the ages. Almost as bad is the claim that “99 per cent of scientists believe” as if scientific truth is determined by votes rather than facts.

If the science is settled it is because we know from measurement of CO2 and thermal IR blocked from escaping to space that the “greenhouse effect” is real. Search OzPol or Skeptical Science for Harries and Feldman papers. Show the greenhouse effect unequivocally! AGW is science truth. We know the molecular and submolecular workings of greenhouse gas molecules and photons of thermal IR. We also see the retreat of glaciers, sea ice and destabilisation of the four main ice sheets (Greenland, Himalayan, West Antarctic and East Antarctic) and consequent rise of sea levels. Ton of evidence.

Palaeontology indicates that over millions of years there have been warmer periods and cooler periods that don’t correlate with carbon dioxide concentrations. The Jurassic warm period and the ice ages occurred without any human contribution at all. The medieval warm period when crops were grown in Greenland and the mini-ice age when the Thames froze over occurred well before industrial activities added to atmospheric carbon dioxide.

AGW is not the only thing affecting the atmosphere and climate: volcanoes spew out aerosols that rise to the top of the atmosphere and reflect sunlight cooling the earth, the precession of the equinoxes, shape of the orbit of the earth etc but right now we are heating the globe and that is causing ever larger, more destructive wildfires (Spain and Portugal facing fires again well into fall!) and sea level rise.

That stuff about crops is more crap. Wasn’t the inability to grow crops saw the Vikings leave Greenland, the native inhabitants adapted and survived.

Prudence and respect for the planet would suggest taking care not lightly to increase carbon dioxide emissions; but the evidence suggests that other factors such as sun spot cycles and oscillations in the Earth’s orbit are at least as important for climate change as this trace gas – which, far from being pollution, is actually essential for life to exist.

Certainly, no big change has accompanied the increase in atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration over the past century from roughly 300 to roughly 400 parts per million or from 0.03 to 0.04 per cent.

At least the clown didn’t say “plant food.” Sunspot cycles last 11 years, don’t affect weather or climate. No big change tho? Sea level rise? Greenland losing nearly 300gigatons of ice a year, 1million square kilometres of Arctic ocean was found to be free of ice. Nothing really :roll :roll :roll

And on and on it goes. Crap, bullshit and lies.
Abbott & Co are going to cause the mother and father of all recessions—be prepared!
