warming

Question by Joe in texas: Liberals: Are we all clear now – there is no global warming crisis?
Or are you going to hold on to this mistaken belief.

The academic at the centre of the ‘Climategate’ affair, whose raw data is crucial to the theory of climate change, has admitted that he has trouble ‘keeping track’ of the information

Professor Phil Jones his record keeping is ‘not as good as it should be’.
The data is crucial to the famous ‘hockey stick graph’ used by climate change advocates to support the theory.

Professor Jones also conceded the possibility that the world was warmer in medieval times than now – suggesting global warming may not be a man-made phenomenon.
And he said that for the past 15 years there has been no ‘statistically significant’ warming.

Gerti: what climate has to do with Liberalsism? It’s one more excuse to stick it to the capitalists and their evil carbon spewing factories.

Who is going to get hit with a Carbon tax? Green peace?
This is not US data. This Professor is English and his data was used by the United Nations IPCC.

15 years? That guy is a quack. The earth is far too old to use the last 15 years as a timeline for measure. Not even Gore understood that.

Btw, to make an adequate argument, you need to provide the most up-to-date, esteemed data on both sides of the table. As you’ve failed to do so, you haven’t proven your point. You do what creationists do, where they take one unfounded argument and use that as all-encompassing fact.

Question by Mortaro: global warming: Is it not true that the earth has always gone through cycles of warming and cooling?
Studies of climate show cycles of warming and cooling long before industry and machines could have had any possible effect. As one scientist put it, effects of industry could have no more than .01 degree (one hundredth) rise in temperature.
Also, for the past 10,000 or so years, earth has had a relatively stable climate, even with the “little ice age” of medieval times. Before then, the climate showed instabilities beyond anything we have experienced or imagined. There is the possibility, even probability, that these times could return, with hurricanes of 400mph winds and as large as a hemisphere, with flash freezes that occur in minutes bringing
-100 degree temperatures. Man does not know or understand everything about our climate. We are lulled into a sense of security and safety with the stable climate of today. Read and study climatology. Don’t just go by what politicians and the news networks say; they don’t take the time or effort to do their homework and be objective.

Okay about every 10 000 years there is something called an ice age so yes but because of global warming our ice age the one to come is going to be coming sooner or later if it comes later we are not going to be around that much longer.

Question by Patriot gal: Now that Climategate has finally shown the deception of global warming, will libs admit B0s platform is a lie?
The Manipulation of evidence, private doubts about whether the world really is heating up, suppression of evidence, and the attempts to disguise the inconvenient truth of the Medieval Warm Period all point to a house of cards for Obama.

It certainly makes cash for clunkers, cap and trade, and “clean energy” stimulus packages look pretty foolhardy

Question by CrazyConservative: Do we need more warming and higher CO2?
If your head is permanently stuck in the sand, you may have missed this article. I am not sure why this has not been covered on the nightly news..wait, oh yea, I do know why, they only run stories which promote AGW. More and more stories are surfacing which shows the benefit of warmer temps. The Romans knew it during the medieval optimum, and we have been lucky enough to benefit. Now if only the supporters would realize it.

Question by Richie: Why another U-turn as scientist at centre of row finally admits there has been no global warming since 1995?
How can any alarmist ever believe in this junk when this top guy from the IPCC admits that:

* Data for vital ‘hockey stick graph’ has gone missing
* There has been no global warming since 1995
* Warming periods have happened before – but NOT due to man-made changes

The academic at the centre of the ‘Climategate’ affair, whose raw data is crucial to the theory of climate change, has admitted that he has trouble ‘keeping track’ of the information.

Colleagues say that the reason Professor Phil Jones has refused Freedom of Information requests is that he may have actually lost the relevant papers.

Professor Jones told the BBC yesterday there was truth in the observations of colleagues that he lacked organisational skills, that his office was swamped with piles of paper and that his record keeping is ‘not as good as it should be’.

The data is crucial to the famous ‘hockey stick graph’ used by climate change advocates to support the theory.

Professor Jones also conceded the possibility that the world was warmer in medieval times than now – suggesting global warming may not be a man-made phenomenon.

And he said that for the past 15 years there has been no ‘statistically significant’ warming.

Phil Jones never said that “there has been no global warming since 1995″. And here is the transcript to the actual interview from which the Daily Mail took a quote out of context and spun it: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/science/nature/8511670.stm

What he actually says was that the climate has been warming an average of 0.12°C per decade over the past 15 years.

Such warming is exceptional and falls within the 93 percentile. However, in statistics, it’s the 95 percentile that is “significant.” Therefore, according to Phil Jones, from 1995 to the present, there has been no “statistically significant” global warming.

Jones also stated, “Achieving statistical significance in scientific terms is much more likely for longer periods, and much less likely for shorter periods.”

“Significant” and “statistically significant” are two different things. Phil Jones should have been more careful explaining this and should have assumed that (A) most people don’t understand statistics; and (B) the denial machine would try to spin what he said and present a misunderstanding to those who don’t really understand science or math.
