All Scientists are Sceptics ~Professor Bob Carter

Whenever someone asserts that a scientific question is “settled,” they tell me immediately that they don’t understand the first thing about science. Science is never settled. Dr David Deming

Perhaps the most frustrating aspect of the science of climate change is the lack of any real substance in attempts to justify the hypothesis ~Professor Stewart Franks

UNSkeptical UNScience's Manufactured Myths.

Cartoonist Cook: SS
The Cartoonist and PhD student  (in cognitive psychology) John Cook runs a site misleadingly called Skeptical Science (SS). We prefer to call it UNSkeptical UNScience. It lacks both elements - 

Scepticism  and Science.



Cook and his conniving cronies have posted a page of, what they call:


Continuing in Cook's Comical Credentials the page is a catastrophe of chaotic confusion and contrived conclusions.

Let's examine a few of the flawed feeble failed fallouts.

UNSkeptical UNScience:

"Climate's changed before" Climate reacts to whatever forces it to change at the time; humans are now the dominant forcing. 
This links to a page which erroneously states:
Greenhouse gasses – mainly CO2, but also methane – were involved in most of the climate changes in Earth’s past. When they were reduced, the global climate became colder. When they were increased, the global climate became warmer. When CO2 levels jumped rapidly, the global warming that resulted was highly disruptive and sometimes caused mass extinctions. Humans today are emitting prodigious quantities of CO2, at a rate faster than even the most destructive climate changes in earth's past.
A recent peer reviewed paper (An Estimate of The Centennial Variability of Global Temperatures: Philip J. Lloyd) rebuts this:
This suggests that while some portion of the temperature change observed in the 20th century was probably caused by greenhouse gases, there is a strong likelihood that the major portion was due to natural variations. 
Let's examine the parts of SS' flawed fabrication:

Greenhouse gasses – mainly CO2, but also methane – were involved in most of the climate changes in Earth’s past.

In fact, as agreed by ALL climate scientists, in the Earth's past, temperature increased before rise in atmospheric CO2,  (LINK: Jo Nova)
But, in 1999 it became clear that carbon dioxide rose and fell after temperatures did. By 2003, we had better data showing the lag was 800 ± 200 years. CO2 was in the back seat.

When CO2 levels jumped rapidly, the global warming that resulted was highly disruptive

As can be seen, temperature JUMPED before rise in CO2.

Humans today are emitting prodigious quantities of CO2, at a rate faster than even the most destructive climate changes in earth's past.

That may and probably is true, however, for ~20 years atmospheric COhas risen unabated whilst global temperatures have plateaued. 

More debunking of Cartoonist Cook's Global Warming and Climate Change Myths to follow.

  1. Proof has been hiding in plain sight that change to the level of atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) does not cause climate change. The science is solid. Fudging the numbers hasn't hidden the proof. Only existing data and the fundamental relation between physics and math are needed or used.

    Proof that CO2 has no significant effect on climate and identification of the two factors that do cause reported climate change are at http://agwunveiled.blogspot.com (now with 5-year running-average smoothing of measured data, R2 = 0.97+ since before 1900)

    1. Mr. Pangburn, I was pleased to see your work appear in the peer-reviewed literature. The paper I speak of is titled:
      Influence of Sunspots on Global Mean Surface Temperature
      and has a DOI number of 10.1260/0958-305X.25.8.1455.
      I thank you for this work, as I had seen your comments at The Hockey Schtick and wondered if they had sufficient merit so as to be published in a peer-reviewed journal.
