My personal musings about anything that gets on my radar screen--heavily dominated by politics.


Bad Week for Al Gore and the Church 

Let me just say this once again: if the science is crap, then the conlusions are crap!

First, Phil Jones, the head of climate science at East Anglia University in England (yes, that East Anglia--the one with the emails) gives an interview in which he basically admits that the warming we've seen in the last several years is, essentially, no different from warming observed in the late 1800s and again in th eearly 1900s. Now, let's see . . . I'm no historian, but I don't think Abe Lincoln arrived at the theater in an SUV . . .

Then, John Christy (who I've written about before) released a study demonstrating that many of the temperature variances measured by the IPCC were due to urbanization. One of the weather stations was located next to an incinerator, and others next to waste treatment plants.

And from the same Times of London article, Ross McKitrick, economics professor, released his analysis of the latest IPCC Report. To say the least, his conclusions are damning:

We concluded, with overwhelming statistical significance, that the IPCC's climate data are contaminated with surface effects from industrialisation and data quality problems. These add up to a large warming bias.

I think it's time for people who believe in anthropogenic global warming nee climate change to reassess their theology. And it's about time for serious people in Congress ( I know--really small group) to call Cap n' Trade what it is: the buying of Indulgences.
