climate alarmism proved invalid …

Abridged Research Report Second Edition, April 2017

A just released peer reviewed Climate Science Research Report has proven that it is all but certain that EPA’s basic claim that CO2 is a pollutant is totally false.

This was the biggest scientific furphy one could imagine, over the past hundred years. Hundreds of billions of dollars thrown into the swamp for nothing. I have over 550 posts on pindanpost and many more on Facebook showing that CO2 is not a pollutant.

Press Release and Research Report “On the Existence of a “Tropical Hot Spot” & The Validity of EPA’s CO2 Endangerment Finding: April 24, 2017

As a prelude to the Press release and Research Report, I have chosen to post the introduction on the press release and significance of this research report by Dr. Alan Carlin, a report reviewer and Retired Senior Analyst and manager EPA from his web site.

Second Edition of path breaking Research Report Further Shows the Scientific Invalidity of Climate Alarmism

From the Second Edition Report:

ABSTRACT

The objective of this research was to determine whether or not a straightforward application of the “proper mathematical methods” would support EPA’s basic claim that CO2 is a pollutant. These analysis results would appear to leave very, very little doubt but that EPA’s claim of a Tropical Hot Spot (THS), caused by rising atmospheric CO2 levels, simply does not exist in the real world. Also critically important, this analysis failed to find that the steadily rising Atmospheric CO2 Concentrations have had a statistically significant impact on any of the 14 temperature data sets that were analyzed.

The temperature data measurements that were analyzed were taken by many different entities using balloons, satellites, buoys and various land based techniques. Needless to say, if regardless of data source, the structural analysis results are the same, the analysis findings should be considered highly credible.

Thus, the analysis results invalidate each of the Three Lines of Evidence in its CO2 Endangerment Finding. Once EPA’s THS assumption is invalidated, it is obvious why the climate models EPA claims can be relied upon for policy analysis purposes, are also invalid. And, these results clearly demonstrate – 14 separate and distinct times in fact— that once just the Natural Factor impacts on temperature data are accounted for, there is no “record setting” warming to be concerned about. In fact, there is no Natural Factor Adjusted Warming at all. Moreover, over the time period analyzed, these natural factors have involved historically quite normal solar, volcanic and ENSO activity. At this point, there is no statistically valid proof that past increases in atmospheric CO2 concentrations have caused the officially reported rising, even claimed record setting temperatures.

——–

Icecap Note:

To not be able to invalidate the hypothesis (commonly called prove) that CO2 was a major (i.e., statistically significant) driver of changes in global temperatures, what are called simultaneous equation parameter estimation techniques must be applied. If CO2 in fact does not have a significant impact, it is rather straightforward to test how much of the earth’s temperature variation can be explained by natural factors (e.g., solar, oceanic and volcanic activity.) It turns out that once these natural factor impacts are removed, the NF Adjusted Temperatures have a flat trend and bear no statistical significant relationship to CO2. These analysis results were found for 14 separate topical and global temperature data sets. This research finding leaves no room for CO2 to have any measurable impact on global atmospheric and surface temperatures. The scientific method requires that such analyses findings be fully reproducible.  And, these are.

Unlike most peer (pal) reviewed papers, the authors made available to our peer reviewers and anyone (including you) access to the data sets. Also a blueprint to the methods was explicitly described in the Preface and a full set of summary statistical results in the report. Anyone with knowledge of the proper use of regression analysis involving simultaneous equation systems can fully understand and replicate this work. However reading the Preface would lend those without simultaneous modeling experience, the ability to fully understand the findings of this work.

RIP, Fairfax News media? …

They wont be missed, as the heady days of journalism is long gone, leaving a once large media firm in such dire straits that the journalist’s strike will not make an iota of difference to anyone but themselves. Good luck with that. The ABC has taken your readers away, free of charge.

Tim Blair notes: “There may be a few spare desks in Canberra next Tuesday:”

Back to Fairfax, the printing goes on:

Fairfax continues publishing during strike – Sky News

6 hours ago – Fairfax Media has continued publishing as hundreds of journalists hold a week-long strike against job cuts.

This is also a test post to see if Fakebook is censoring me, as it sure seems like it, as I do know it censures readers and contributors. Censorship is not free speech, nor does it fit a media organization with ethics.

Fortunately most people are aware that social media and search engines like Google have become highly politicized, so fact checking is essential. I hereby ban Fakebook for as long as I decide to.

This kind of leftist fantasy gets President Trump 4 more years, and probably Pense the following eight.

These two posts from the master blogger himself, Professor Glenn Reynolds, where the culprit of the former, may need a use for the latter, a court jester for the deranged left, while spitting hatred at President Trump.

But Colbert’s gay-bashing doesn’t just reveal how awful Colbert is, but how awful is the audience that eats his schtick up.

is there anything more CO2 isn’t good for …

Yes, really:

Elevated CO2 Enhances the Removal of Cadmium and Lead Contamination from Toxic Soils (28 April 2017)
According to the authors of this study, “elevated CO2 benefited the microenvironment in the rhizosphere of R. pseudoacacia seedlings under Cd and Pb stress by increasing the concentration of dissolved organic carbon and organic compounds, microbial population, and microbial and enzyme activity”…

Esperance, in Western Australia’s south suffered a severe lead problem at the Port, forcing a closure to operations after birds were dying all over the town. Maybe this method of clean-up would help.

Burn more gas.

a weird landscape …

Low tide on the north side of La Grange Bay, SW of Broome

The area pictured here has not been seen by a paleontologist it seems. Might ask Dr Salisbury if he knows these tracks in the Port Smith, to La Grange Bay. That could mean another trip to Broome for his team. I recognize the False Bossut Creek mouth.

These images, taken by my late brother-in-law, Ian Vigar, who passed through here every year for many years. Click to zoom.

malaria vaccine gets closer …

This breakthrough on a Malaria vaccine could have been achieved much sooner if so much money wasn’t wasted on a non-existent global warming exercise in stealing taxpayer money.

FASTER, PLEASE: After Decades of Work, a Malaria Vaccine Is Here. “Three African countries have been chosen to test the world’s first malaria vaccine, the World Health Organization announced Monday. Ghana, Kenya, and Malawi will begin piloting the injectable vaccine next year with young children. The vaccine, which has partial effectiveness, has the potential to save tens of thousands of lives if used with existing measures, the WHO regional director for Africa, Dr. Matshidiso Moeti, said in a statement. The challenge is whether impoverished countries can deliver the required four doses of the vaccine for each child, the AP reports. Malaria infects more than 200 million people worldwide every year and kills about half a million, most of them children in Africa.”

It’s a start.

Socialist Democrat politics, religion and science uncovered … shots fired

Following on the so-called March for Science, events now show that it was politics that interfered with science. These actions tell me that President Trump and the Republicans who voted for his government are on the right track after 8 years of scientific malfeasance, culminating in the withdrawal of hundreds of fraudulent papers. Shots fired, reports Jonova: Warning shots fired at Christie/ Spencer UAH Building?

News just coming in suggests someone took some pot shots at the building the UAH satellite data is analyzed in.

Shots Fired into the Christy/Spencer Building at UAH

April 24th, 2017 by Roy W. Spencer, Ph. D.

A total of seven shots were fired into our National Space Science and Technology Center (NSSTC) building here at UAH over the weekend.

All bullets hit the 4th floor, which is where John Christy’s office is (my office is in another part of the building).

Given that this was Earth Day weekend, with a March for Science passing right past our building on Saturday afternoon, I think this is more than coincidence. When some people cannot argue facts, they resort to violence to get their way.

Maybe the “March For Science” should have been called the “March To Silence”.

More discussion at Roy Spencers Blog and also at WUWT.

Roy Spencer adds in an email:

I doubt any media have covered it yet. I doubt the police have even written a report yet. From what I’ve heard, it sounds like the police believe the shots were fired from a passing car, and some shell casings were recovered, as well as fragments of bullets inside the building. You can quote me.
 
Things that feed mindless hate: Namecalling, poor science education  and mangled English. When the old accurate meanings are destroyed, there is almost no chance of a proper conversation. How can two views be reconciled when people don’t speak the same language?
 
Best wishes to Roy, John and the whole team. If this suspicious event happened to a believer it would be front page hyperbole, “Death Threats to Climate Scientists.”

Then the data tampering that has become an epidemic, especially in climate science, but below, even the Agriculture Department is not immune: Nearly 10% of USDA scientists believe their work has been tampered with

 A survey of Dept of Agriculture (USDA) scientists by the agency’s inspector general suggests some very fishy things are going on in government science:

[Darryl Fears, Washington Post]   According to the survey’s findings, nearly 10 percent said their research has been tampered with or altered by superiors “for reasons other than technical merit,” possibly because of political considerations.

Looks like  Monopsony Trouble: When almost all the research in some fields is done by government funding (one buyer), there is no competition. In answer to that, instead of finding ways to encourage competition, the government set up an agency instead — the SIP.

That didn’t work either. […]

Outrageous!

[…] The story goes on to describe Lundgren’s 2014 whistleblower experience of suddenly having odd rules selectively enforced against him, but not against other researchers. Et Voila…

And this is only agriculture. You might think it would be tame.

internet therapy needed for TDS …

I guess Facebook helped these find friends, just some pathetic stuff I found today.on Fakebook. so many Looney losers, suffering Trump Derangement Syndrome. I have a ‘friend’ who has need of therapy. Or is he just researching very imaginative Flakebook names? President Trump owns their heads:

 

The real James Woods,  offers  a description:

However, I offer this piece I found at Instapundit as therapy, but it’s more likely to trigger a search for a safe space:

ROGER KIMBALL ON TRUMP VS. OBAMA: A STUDY IN CONTRASTS:

As we approach Trump’s hundredth day in office, however, I am happy to say that I sense a change in the anti-Trump dynamic. The anti-Trump venom is as widespread and hysterical as ever. But as the days go by and Trump governs not as Hitler but as a deliberate executive, toting up victories here, setbacks there, rain checks and extenuations and opportunities, more and more people will say, “This guys is the real deal. He gets things done. He delivers on his promises. He really is making America great again.” The effect of that sentiment will be to marginalize the mainstream media.  If you want a vivid example of exactly how that is done, contemplate what’s about to happen next Saturday when Trump skips the White House correspondents’ dinner and holds a big rally in Pennsylvania instead. I’m sure there will be lots of snide remarks, anti-Trump jokes, and the air will be thick with contemptuous self-satisfaction.  What might not be obvious to the attendees, but what will be blindingly obvious to the rest of us, is that no one who is not crowded into that fetid atmosphere will care. A process of marginalization and emasculation is underway.  If Trump’s second 100 days is as successful as his first 100 days, that process should be essentially complete by the end of the year.

Read the whole thing – and note that in regards to the DNC-MSM’s Trump-as-Hitler meme, as Glenn would say, all is proceeding as Scott Adams has foreseen.

Broome town …

The architecture of the town of Broome in Western Australia is unique. Tropical, to desert climate, including heat waves to 44C and cyclones, that mostly pass by, have helped create this style of building, similar to a century ago.

Corrugated iron, and steel frames, with new buildings designed to withstand the fiercest cyclonic weather, is the end result. Modern powerlines are underground, with only a small part of town left with poles, the oldest parts. The oldest here:

Then, some new and newer.

Then the older Roebuck Hotel, refurbished many times.
