David Mann you are a data fraudster, and after 8 years of a BC Judge ordering you tro show your data, you refused, had to PAY ALL OF DR. TIM BALL’S LEGAL FEES; you lost David!
That would proove it inside a Court of Law, “Under Oath”, your hockey stick graph is faked. You really do belong in the state pen i say!
Dr. Tim Ball revealed your IPCC Terms of Reference that prohibit mention of Earth made CO2 being >19X CO2. Man made CO2 is 3.5%, but lets call it 5% for this Word Problem you cannot seem to solve.
You are Climate Gretta, and your Solar Yacht has sprung a water leak, and is leaking IN 100 Gallons of water per minute. You and your crew with 100% effort, are capable of bailing out 5 Gallons per minute. Why do you insist on bailing at all. When will you see your shame you shameless fraudster?
Perhaps the law of unexpected consequences will work in our favor for a change. The reaction to Trump’s nonsense may cause a back lash and result in movement in the right direction which didn’t occur under advocacy for sensible action. Just the other day, I heard a bunch of GOP (pronounced gop) senators propose a carbon tax. I had to read it over a few times to believe what I saw. Fingers crossed.
North Dakota is trying to pass legislation that will likely make wind farms a thing of the past.
Thanks, Jack. I was intrigued by your idea that “Big Green” was bigger than the oil industry, so I looked it up. You know, facts. So it turns out that the US oil industry rakes in about $150 billion a year, although, since they keep most of the profits offshore, the world oil industry at $1.2 trillion might be a better baseline. Then I looked though a lot of right-wing stuff like the Washington Examiner to find out just how Green big Green was, and couldn’t find anyone who thought the environmental groups in the US made any more than, say, $2 billion a year, tops, for all of them. Just FYI.
The fossil fuel industry has nothing on Big Green, the climate fascists who control the research and the media.
“Big Green” does not finance climate change research; most of the $ comes from government sources.
That was for Mr Big Green….seriously Big Green? I wish there was money in being an environmentalist.
So, I’m a publicly funded climate scientist, and I know a large fraction of the climate science community. If your conspiracy theory is right, it’s a) extraordinarily secretive, given I’ve never heard a single person mention it, or the possibility of it, ever (in 15 years of hanging out in climate modeling centers). That we are involved in a conspiracy is laughable to everyone I know. It’s very hard to get contrarian scientists to agree on anything! It’s also b) pretty paltry, given that where I live, climate scientists can’t afford to buy a house in the same town…
Haha what…… you are joking right?
“Lions” of the Serengeti? More like jackals. (In full expectation of the inevitable sharply worded rebuke from Biologist/jackal researchers. ;-)
Public information are spun by the media which know how fickle we are with our spun source. Sensationalism works on we, creatures of habit who get their boring lives hyped with curiosity. You ever look back at the public be headings & hangingso & think, who were these people, our forefathers & foremost hers who were so spell bound by the vengeance? We may have gained some civility, but we are still spell bound by the hype.
So now we have taken the lesson of how to manipulate the curious & fickle public opinions, to sway them into a well paid fossil fuel interest, $$$ & paid deniers line up in the Republican house & senate with reasons or treasons, willingness to do those rich oil & other fossil fuel money their, sold & paid for, favors.
Our only saving grace ithe seems, is in the fact that those wells & drilled fuels are of a finite resource. We can hope that this Era will see the end of its nod in favor & not be profitable for too much longer.
I know that synopsis leaves no hope for the climate. Simmorly, is this Trump’s bow to them now.
Eventually you figure out that we could all be wiped out in a near term by a tyrant vs tyrant rage with WMD’s from NK. I’ll fight for truth & reason in everything but, I’ll laugh & take as much fun as I can get today.
My deepest respect to Professor Michael E. Mann. I’m sorry you were targeted & you Sir, deserve retribution from these witch hunters.
When confronted by conflicting views, fallibility is the first principle to get lost. At most one side is right, and of all possible paths forward the likelihood of either path, in this case – suspend judgement or resolve at any cost – is justified is slim. The “Serengeti Strategy” works in both directions. Keeping out alternative approaches out is not the best strategy against a hidden agenda.
The alternative approach that has gotten virtually no support is modeling the earth’s thermal control system as both a short term Active System and a long term Passive System similar to that designed for the International Space Station. Improving both the flow of heat to the poles and to the night side of the planet (radiator panels) so it can be more efficiently radiated to space is just as important as making the atmosphere (skin of the platform) a less resistive to infrared radiation. While it may take hundreds of years to improve the GHG composition of the atmosphere, reducing cloud cover, humidity and sea ice at night while increasing these barriers during the day could potentially stabilize climate in the short term at little cost.
Doing nothing would not be acceptable on either the International Space Station or on the earth.
