'The Marcott et al. conclusion that “Global temperatures are warmer than at any time in at least 4,000 years” is clearly contrary to measured real-time data and thus fails the Feynman test, i.e., it is are wrong...Claim of 'A heat spike like this has never happened before, at least not in the last 11,300 years' is clearly contrary to measured real-time data and thus fails the Feynman test, i.e., their conclusion is wrong'
'Loyalty is expected. Zeal replaces scientific caution. Dissent is penalized, sometimes harshly so. Scientists are no longer simply esteemed researchers. They have assumed the role of society's policemen, crusaders, and protectors. And the proven means of getting more expenditures for next year's budget is to prove that one's project is confirming the worst of all possible fears'
'Considering the lack of adequate dating of the Antarctic ice cores and lack of correlation with New Zealand and global YD chronology, what this means is that their entire Antarctic curve is incorrect and needs to be shifted by nearly 2,000 years, taking with it the CO2 curve. This means that their entire argument for CO2 preceding warming during the last glaciation falls completely apart'
'They dismiss all other causal mechanisms by simply stating that they are only of 'regional importance', similar to the tactic of dismissing the MWP and Little Ice Age as only regional climate changes, not global. They also totally ignore the complete lack of correlation of CO2 with Holocene climate changes'
Easterbrook: 'Claims such as these can only be considered geofantasy, unsupported by scientific data & contrary to a vast amount of data to contrary...Globally synchronous Little Ice Age glacial advances & retreats are also well documented in geologic literature, as well as Medieval Warm Period. Well-defined glacial moraines lie downvalley from almost every glacier in world!...The claim cannot be considered credible'
Book: 'Objectively gathers and analyzes scientific data concerning patterns of past climate changes, influences of changes in ocean temps, the effect of solar variation on global climate, and the effect of CO2 on global climate to clearly and objectively present counter-global-warming evidence not embraced by proponents of AGW'
Easterbrook: 'The announcement that sun spots may disappear totally for several decades is very disturbing because it could mean that we are headed for another Little Ice Age during a time when world population is predicted to increase by 50% with sharply increasing demands for energy, food production, and other human needs'
