Things Are Heating Up – 17 The Finale!

But wait Laura, If it is the Sun that is heating Earth why aren’t the other planets warming as well? They are. *1 *2 Further, Mars has been losing ice from its polar regions. *3 It is the Sun.   *1 Link: Mars is warming: http://www.nasa.gov/centers/ames/research/2007/marswarming.html *2 Link: Other planets are warming: http://www.livescience.com/1349-sun-blamed-warming-earth-worlds.html Share this post: Blog this!

Things Are Heating Up – 16 Let’s Do The Math!

AGW / CC alarmists will loudly proclaim that the cause of global warming cannot be the Sun. They have been saying this same thing since the beginning of their movement; a movement that precedes the technology to actually know what the Sun is doing. In the previous blog entry I demonstrated three points of agreement between solar activity and Earth temperature, but could the Sun actually be the primary causal agent of the apparent warming of Earth? Now, this is a difficult matter. While I have no problems accepting a time domain local warming of Earth, I do not simply accept as reliable any of the numbers presented to us by climatologists. Most current climatologists are earning their money providing the papers upon which AGW / CC alarmism is based. There is more than sufficient evidence that the alleged science is rarely science at all. There is evidence of data tampering and poor quality of mathematics used in the process of this “science”. I long ago in this series called attention to the figure of 0.74C warming per century in the recent era and that certainly the four hundredths of a degree is a matter of precision of calculation, and … Continue reading

Things Are Heating Up – 15, But Why?

There would seem no good reason to accept the current alarmist position on the Earth’s climate. No, the climate is not precisely what it was a year ago or ten or five thousand. There is no normal and proper year, change is the normal. Further, the data that AGW / CC proponents cite is tainted by cherry picking of data, data “adjustments”, poorly sited measurement locations, and bias. The math used by AGW / CC proponents is poor and poor unidirectional; which is to say that the examples of poor math used by proponents of the alarmist position seem always to exaggerate their claims and never errors or fudging in a direction which would diminish their claims. The very language of the AGW / CC alarmists is not that of science, but of public relations and advertising and politics. Many of the people shouting the most loudly are reaping major profits from their orthodoxy and the studies are government funded and then lead inexorably to a need for even more government on all levels. None of their predictions have been accurate; whether that arctic ice would entirely disappear, *1 or that snow would never fall again in England, *2 or … Continue reading

Things Are heating Up – 14, Nearing the End!

Nothing is actually either statically or positively stable. Given time, everything changes. Given the passage of enough time our Sun will cease to oscillate happily between its current small and large poles of diameter. At some time in the future it will fall past that small diameter pole without sufficient increase in fusion as to trigger its thermal expansion. It will do this because it will finally have burned so much of its fuel that the reactivity needed to spark thermal expansion will not occur. It will fall through that diameter that was, even in the previous contraction phase of its cycle, the small diameter pole, and then reach a different ignition; a different fuel. At that time *1 the Sun will expand greatly to become a red giant. *2 The sun is dynamically stable. It oscillates from a pole of large diameter to a pole of small diameter and back. It passes through its nominal diameter again and again in a dynamic, self correcting series of excursions; pole to pole. It will, when it runs critically low on fuel, fail to ignite at the small pole and then transition to a different state. It will be dynamically stable again … Continue reading

Things Are Heating Up – 13, Short and Sweet

One person that some scientists truly dislike is Karl Popper. Now, the esteemed Popper was not strictly speaking a scientist…or was he? *1 many scientists dislike him for one thing that he wrote. What Popper wrote that honks off so many scientists is that real science has to do with falsibility. That is to say that a scientific statement must be falsifiable. That means that if the statement is untrue, that untruth must be available. any scientific statement must be subject to faslification. Any statement which is not so subject to being found false. if it is false, is outside science. Now, the AGW / CC proponents will ascribe any and every apparent weather event to the effects of their hypothesis. If any weather is the result of AGW / CC then there is no falsification possible. Sorry AGW / CC people  but you demonstrate again and again that whatever your position is; *2 it is not science.   *1 To my mind that which makes a scientist is not a specific degree nor a job within science, but rather a positive answer to the following question? Does this person understand science, and can this person employ scientific method? I … Continue reading
