'They treat unbelievably tiny differences in temperature that exist only as a statistical artifact as if they told us something! For instance they contrast the 2013 anomaly of .62C with 2010, which is .66C. The difference is only 4 hundredths of one degree Celsius!' -- 'NOAA also has 2013 as the 4th warmest year, at 0.62 deg C above the global 20th century average of 13.9 deg C. Note that only 0.09 deg C [nine hundredths of one degree] separates their top ten warmest years.' - 'Is there any point at which they would concede that a difference is too small to be taken seriously? Thousandths of one degree? Millionths of one degree? Medieval theologians used to debate how many angels could dance on the head of a pin. Theology is alive and well among Warmists!'
'A first-class summary of the rise and fall of Michael Mann's bogus Hockey Stick graph, and the Mann-made global warming alarm along with it'
McIntyre and McKitrick found '99% of the time you could process random data using Mann’s techniques and it would generate a Hockey Stick shape. This meant that Mann’s claim that the Hockey Stick graph represented an accurate reconstruction of the past climate was in tatters'
Lakeland Ledger - December 29, 1974: 'Jule Charney, professor of meteorology at M.I.T.: 'I don't think we can predict climate now and I wouldn't trust anyone who said he could. The atmosphere is just too complex to take some of these vague statistics and try to use them to predict with. You can always find a single physical mechanism that will 'cause' one thing or another, it just gets too complicated...Anyone who says he can tell you more than a few days ahead of time what the weather is going to be is practicing necromancy.' (A form of magic involving communication with the dead)
Joseph Smagorinsky, director of the laboratory (the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory in Princeton N.J.) agrees: "There are all sorts of natural climatic cycles we don't understand yet. One man's trend is simply another man's periodicity -- it just depends on whether you are using a telescope or a microscope. To go directly from a hand-waving hypothesis to contingency plans for moving six million people is a little frightening."
Turney: 'There is an increasing body of evidence, including by the AAE members, that have identified parts of the East Antarctic which are highly susceptible to melting and collapse from ocean warming'
Prof. Roger Pielke, Jr. in 2009: 'So a warming Antarctica and a cooling Antarctica are both 'consistent with' model projections of global warming. Our foray into the tortured logic of 'consistent with' in climate science raises the perennial question, what observations of the climate system would be inconsistent with the model predictions?'
