It should have been obvious to everyone when these guys changed their stand from “Global Warming” to “Climate Change”… and now I hear they prefer the term “Climate Chaos”.
As if changing the name made the idea so much more relevant or the “science” more correct but it was, at best, half-baked pseudo-science run amok and at the worst: political activism at its most heinous.
I can imagine the whole thing started when one guy happened to notice the graph of the CO2 levels seemed to match the rise in temperature. Naturally, he assumed since they were so closely aligned, they must be related. He must have pointed this out to some wizard who yelled “Eureka!” or “Bingo!” or whatever it is these charlatans yell when they suddenly see a vast array of dollar signs.
When Al Gore made his mighty splash, the thing had been in lock-step between the two graphs for several years and it seemed a pretty good bet. But then the graph lines diverged. Many held their breath, waiting for the sanity to return to the graphs but no such luck. Others are struggling mightily to find another graph that matches what we are seeing. Perhaps the one labeled “per capita donut consumption by police officers in relation to the number of… blah blah blah.”
I’ve seen better progressed horoscopes align to natal readings than this stuff. You see, the natal horoscope presents the basis for the annular chart done every year since birth but it also established the starting point for the “progressed chart” which works on the scalar model of one day to one year. In this manner, the angles calculated for the thirtieth day since the nativity relates to the thirtieth year.
Simple, huh? Yes, but very math intensive!
What?! You exclaim, that is a pseudo-science!!
Well, so is this climate change bunkum. And at least the progressed horoscopes make a better predictive model than these guys have latched onto. Next time fellas, do some research yourself before you cast aspersions.
The entire global warming (a.k.a. climate change a.k.a. climate chaos) pseudo-science was based on a graph that did not go back far enough. Claiming the CO2 produced by Man could not have caused the last two know periods of global warming but that sort of “evidence” did not interfere with the pseudo-science of these global warning prophets of doom.
So, today we find that the “rapidly rising temperatures” we had been told to fear had somehow leveled off even as the CO2 levels continued to rise. The first couple of years brought very little notice… two years could just be a little blip. But now that ten such years have passed, they are getting worried.
Even the big names in the global warming racket are starting to doubt the theory. One guy from Germany (Dr. Hans von Storch, the Lead Author of the U.N. IPCC) now claims it appears the theory is “seriously flawed”. That’s a start, I suppose, although “non-existent” is closer to the truth.
Unfortunately, most of the pedantic followers of the warming litany still cling to their faith that the – *cough* *cough* – science of global warming will be vindicated.
Well, don’t hold your breath.
The funniest thing about this whole story is the fact that there are still websites and bloggers out there clinging desperately to the con that they will not entertain any interruptions from sanity.
I swear… these guys give pseudo-scientists a bad name!
Most pseudo-sciences are not nearly this bogus.
