Climate Experts Spencer and Lindzen Lash Out as Pet Theory is Trashed

Normal
0

Two irate top climatologists launch into a flurry of name-calling and innuendo as their beloved greenhouse gas theory collapses threatening to take their careers with it.

 Dr. Roy Spencer this week followed the lead of Dr. Richard Lindzen in spitting insults after fellow skeptic scientists debunked the greenhouse gas effect (GHE). Lindzen confined his insults to private emails. But Spencer openly blogged his personal attack after reading how cutting-edge scientific research by specialists in astrophysicists, space engineering and mathematics had exposed Spencer’s weak grasp of physics; something particularly identified by NASA’s former Apollo Mission engineer, Dr. Pierre R. Latour.

 Highly credentialed scientists, among them Latour, Professor Nasif Nahle, Dr. Matthias Kleespies and other leading experts in their respective fields have been remorselessly debunking the GHE in a series of articles and peer-reviewed papers. The GHE is the cornerstone of the man-made global warming hysteria.

Discussions Terminated After Tempers Fray

With unseemly venom Spencer and Lindzen have scorned further dialog from several fellow man-made global warming skeptics for refusing to toe the line over the increasingly discredited greenhouse gas theory (GHE).

 Like many climatologists, Spencer and Lindzen have built successful careers as skeptics of the man-made global warming narrative, but all the while they've denounced anyone who has pinpointed errors woven into the GHE. Some quarters refer to such skeptics as 'lukewarmers.'

But in recent months a paradigm shift has been underway and a whole slew of hard core GHE contrarians are no longer prepared to stay silent – and can you blame them?  Satellite measurements prove that atmospheric levels of carbon dioxide have gone up over 30 percent in recent decades while global temperatures have fallen since 2003; that's real world data starkly contradicting the predicted warming of the GHE ( Lindzen foreseeing a 1 degree Celsius rise).

 Like all other religionists who subscribe to the ‘greenhouse gas effect’ these two giants of climate skepticism are profoundly at fault for believing the atmosphere ‘keeps our planet warmer than it would otherwise be.’

While an increasing number of fellow scientists are abandoning belief in the GHE these two American skeptic academics stand out for stubbornly sustaining the GHE falsehood – and because they believe in the crazy ‘cold’ space fallacy.

Space has no Temperature: So Says Space Scientists

For months earnest behind-the-scenes discussions have been to no avail. Space scientists and other experts have despaired as they have tried and failed to show Spencer and Lindzen the errors of their way. Astrophysicist Joe Postma, who works for the Canadian and Indian space agencies, sums it up:

“Everyone who has studied thermodynamics knows space doesn’t have a temperature. That’s the first trick question you get on the first day of the first semester of introductory thermodynamics. That 2.7K is the "temperature" of the CMB radiation found in space.  It is not the temperature OF space!  See the logical difference?  Of course academia can’t handle that level of logic anymore; 2.7K would be the induced temperature of a physical body in space with no other heat sources, but it is not the temperature of the empty space itself.”

 Spencer and Lindzen wrongly assumed that the so-called cosmic 'microwave' – the background radiation (or CMBR, generated by the ‘Big Bang’) is what the rest of vacuum space registers as temperature (the CMBR is quoted at around 2.7K).

 But even that pro-green online encyclopedia, Wikipedia knows there is no ‘real’ temp in space – they refer to the “color temperature of the decoupled photons” which they say “has continued to diminish ever since [the 'Big Bang']; now down to 2.72548 ± 0.00057 K,[3]

‘Thermos Flask’ analogy More Compelling than ‘Blanket Effect’

 Time and again independent scientists have demonstrated to leading climatologists in private emails that space has no temperature because it is an empty vacuum and as such acts as a perfect insulator (like a thermos flask). Thus it inhibits the escape of heat energy from Earth’s atmosphere; only the cooling effect of ‘wet’ gases in our turbulent atmosphere dispose of the excess heat energy via convection and conduction.

 Time and again the Spencers and Lindzens cling onto their falsities. Once this fundamental fact is understood they will appreciate Earth endures a ‘thermos flask-like effect’ influencing our planet to retain (not lose) heat.

People who say that ‘space is cold, because of the CMBR’ will often concede they have no training in thermodynamics.

 “It is perfectly ambiguous and a red-herring/straw man, just like the way they argue with the greenhouse effect,” says Postma. Thankfully, the reverse of the alleged greenhouse gas effect  is true – atmospheric gases act to keep out planet COOLER than it would otherwise be.

Global Warming Science: Built on Arrogance, Stupidity and Deceit

Categorically, space does not have a temperature, only matter has a temperature – only matter can make a sound and you can only hear that sound if there is matter in between you and the source of the sound.

Does anyone hear you if you clap in space? It’s basically the same question. There’s no matter in space – therefore no one hears the vibration of your two hands slapping together propagating outwards and making a sound.

Space scientists know radiation does not have a temperature. It can only induce a temperature when it encounters matter that is susceptible to the radiation it receives. Some humility now needs to be shown by climate scientists and they must admit that the GHE and the whole man-made global warming fraud was built on ignorance, stupidity and/or willful deception.

What the Spencers and Lindzens of this world need to understand is that the radiation that is found in space might indicate a temperature, but radiation is NOT space.

Radiation is energy, and indeed it can have what space scientists call a Black Body temperature spectrum (this is where the confusion would come in).  But ponderable temperature is actually only created when that energy gets absorbed into an object/matter and the molecules/atoms start vibrating/bouncing around.

To say that the radiation that is found in space IS the temperature of space is convoluted nonsense; it is either lack of knowledge or purposeful misdirection.

Wikipedia Begins Media Whitewash of Climate Criminal Peter Gleick

Wikipedia, the “free online encyclopedia,” has set about swiftly whitewashing the self-confessed criminal conduct of climatologist, Dr. Peter Gleick. Skeptics will regard such action as further evidence that the website is an organ of man-made global warming propaganda.

Despite his full public admission to be a co-conspirator in criminal activities against the Heartland Institute, a charity sympathetic to skeptics, Wikipedia is at pains to hide the fact Peter Gleick yesterday admitted to this felony published here at the Huffington Post  .

In it’s latest entry (H/T: Paul Sheridan) added today (February 21, 2012) the Wikipedia entry for fraudster, Peter Gleick reads thus:

On February 20, 2012, Gleick issued a statement in the Huffington Post explaining that he had received anonymous documents in the mail that seemed to contain details on the climate program strategy of The Heartland Institute, a pro-business think tank. He admitted to soliciting and receiving additional material from the Institute "under someone else's name," calling his actions "a serious lapse of my own and professional judgment and ethics."[17] Andrew Revkin wrote at the New York Times that "Gleick has admitted to an act that leaves his reputation in ruins … " [18]

How many other media outlets that claim to serve the public but are in fact controlled by our self-serving elite, will also engage in this despicable cover up?

Breaking: Eminent Scientist May be Jailed for Faking Climate Emails

In a sensational public confession a leading climatologist, Peter Gleick has admitted to taking part in a high-profile climate emails forgery that has backfired; says it was done to intentionally injure skeptic foundation.

 

Britain’s pro-green national daily, ‘The Guardian’  was the first major newspaper to break the news that Dr. Peter Gleick had confessed to unlawfully libeling the prominent climate skeptic supporter, the Heartland Institute (HI). Heartland is a 28-year-old national nonprofit organization with offices in Chicago, Illinois and Washington, DC. Its mission is “to discover, develop, and promote free-market solutions to social and economic problems.”

Stopping short of specifically admitting he was the author of the faked Heartland Institute document, Gleick nonetheless spilled the beans that he was a co-conspirator, via the Huffington Post  late last night (February 20, 2012).  Gleick admits that his political bias on climate catastrophism led him to commit “ a serious lapse of my own and professional judgment and ethics.” 

 In reply Heartland Institute President Joseph L. Bast immediately issued an official statement declaring,

 "Gleick's crime was a serious one. The documents he admits stealing contained personal information about Heartland staff members, donors, and allies, the release of which has violated their privacy and endangered their personal safety.”

 Climate Criminality to Promote Failing  Alarmist Agenda

 Gleick, an eminent climate scientist promoting the man-made global warming meme, had jumped off his lofty establishment pedestal to admit that he had knowingly intented to cause injury and defame HI, a registered charity.

 Dr. Gleick added he would “not comment on the substance or implications of the materials.” But there can be no doubt that the tone of his letter suggests it was drafted under the direct guidance of an attorney.

Heartland Institute lawyers have announced they will mount a prosecution in a civil court for knowingly using a fraudulent instrument to inflict intentional injury upon the prominent skeptic foundation.

 Jail Time Possible for Conspiring in a Criminal Conspiracy

 The consequences for Gleick are very grave. HI President Bast added, “A mere apology is not enough to undo the damage.”

So not only does Gleick face being financially ruined by a civil prosecution, he is also liable to a criminal investigation as such falsification of documents is a well-known brand of white collar crime

Gleick, a water expert, has implicated himself in passing along copies of documents that he admits he knew to be false. In most states, including Washington D.C., falsifying a document is a crime punishable as a felony. He may serve jail time if convicted.

No Way Back for BBC's "Visionary on the Environment"

 But in addition, Dr. Gleick very probably will be compelled to step down from public life and resign his prominent positions now his reputation is in tatters. Gleick is president and co-founder of the Pacific Institute and UC Berkeley Alum. {C}{C}

In 2001, Gleick was dubbed a "visionary on the environment" by the British Broadcasting Corporation. In 2006 he was elected to the National Academy of Sciences, Washington, D.C. Here is a video of Gleick denouncing skeptics at UC Berkeley's Annual Sustainability Summit in April 2011.

 But on a broader front, the debacle constitutes a devastating own-goal for the billion-dollar climate alarmist industry.

 From the outset of the leak, trumpeted by global doomsaying mouthpiece, DeSmoglblog, Heartland's president Joseph Bast had announced that the two-page memo was a fake – "A mere apology is not enough to undo the damage," Bast said in a statement. But extremist climate alarmist outlets had failed to heed Bast’s warning that HI would sue for damages anyone who re-published the counterfeit correspondence. Now DeSmogblog, Gleick and other unprincipled accomplices will surely face heavy civil liabilities if Bast’s lawyers file suit for damages.

Richard Littlemore, of DeSmogblog, has already defiantly refused to remove the material Gleick admits is fake. The most egregious lie in Gleick's mendacious memo was the claim that skeptics were out to repress science, the kind of fakery Littlemore has form for promoting.

DeSmog Blog, laughingly claiming its mission is to “clear the PR pollution that clouds climate science,” is suspected of being implicated in the Gleick fraud. It is now in line to suffer defeats in three climate libel lawsuit – adding to the two vexatious claims against Canada’s most popular climatologist, Dr. Tim Ball, a vociferous campaigner against climate criminals.

Heartland Calls Gleick Confession “Unbelievable”

Gleick disingenuously claims he received the fake document “At the beginning of 2012” and that he “solicited and received additional materials directly from the Heartland Institute under someone else’s name.”

But this statement appears at odds with the timeline and forensic evidence and was promptly denounced by Bast who responded, “This too is unbelievable. Many independent commentators already have concluded the memo was most likely written by Gleick.” Bast also disputed Gleick's account that he had received the first document – the faked two-page memo – from an anonymous source.

But diehard zealots of the climate cult are rallying behind their man. One such crank is Scott Mandia, co-founder of the climate science rapid response team, who chipped in, “He [Gleick] is the hero and Heartland remains the villain.”

Although fellow pro-green activist, Andrew Revkin was more restrained admitting,Those actions may have undercut an entire career.” Revkin went on to accept that "Gleick's use of deception in pursuit of his cause after years of calling out climate deception has destroyed his credibility and harmed others."

No doubt retractions of such vituperative invective, as found on the Vancouver Sun, will surely proceed apace and grovelling apologies will be published. Heartland’s statement on the matter is so bullish and legally compelling that any pro-green media outlets declining to comply are  best advised to lawyer up pronto.

Top Weather Forecaster Slates UK Government Drought ‘Swindle’

World leader in long-range weather forecasting, Piers Corbyn mounts a scathing attack on British government ministers for ‘connivance in swindling the public’ and ignoring proven successes of world-leaders, WeatherAction.

The outburst (February 20, 2012) was in response to an announcement that Environment Secretary Caroline Spelman today called a meeting of water companies, farmers and experts to discuss ways of tackling the growing British drought problem.

This winter has been the driest for 40 years. East Anglia, the East Midlands and the South East have been the worst affected. Warnings are being issued that restrictions on water use for households and businesses could be introduced, unless there is significant rainfall soon.

Pauline Smith from the Environment Agency said: "We've had two dry winters now, and as a consequence of that, reservoirs haven't refilled, underground water stores haven't refilled, and it means we are heading towards a summer that could be quite difficult." The 'drought summit' – organized by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs – will meet on Monday February 20, 2012.

Piers Corbyn of WeatherAction.com, an acknowledged world leader in successful long-range weather forecasters, immediately hit back:

"The Govt, Environment Agency and some water companies say they are worried about potential drought conditions developing this year, however they appear to be not interested in knowing whether such conditions might actually develop.”

Barbecue Summers and Mild Winter Fiascos Discredit Met Office

Anger is building among those whose livelihoods depend on reliable long-range forecasts because the Met Office, the British Government's advisers, has failed to forecast ANY of the extreme seasons/months since 2007. By contrast, Corbyn’s maverick service has maintained a steady success rate above 80 percent accuracy.An infuriated Corbyn blasted,

"WeatherAction correctly forecast the key features in all the extreme months/seasons since 2007 while the Met Office failed. The relative successes being 7 to zero.“

The London-based WeatherAction’s front man pointedly drew attention to the fact the Met Office has been consistently and diametrically wrong in it’s predictions (remember those supposed 'barbecue summers' which turned into floods and the supposed 'mild winter months' which turned out record cold?).

In stark contrast Corbyn’s forecasts for Summer and Autumn 2011 and Winter 2011-12 have been widely praised.

Corbyn cites the reason for the obstinacy of ministers to listen to him: the lingering man-made global warming scam. The Met Office has been the biggest spin-doctor of the climate catastrophism and has benefited to the tune of hundreds of millions for riding the climate gravy train.

"If the Govt and water companies and others involved want to know what Spring and Summer will be like they could ask us to help,” says 65-year-old Corbyn.

However (apart from some notable exceptions in the water industry and farming) it seems the UK’s political elite actively aren’t bothered in sound science because Corbyn has been a vociferous critic of the global warming scam.

Summing up the predicament the avuncular Londoner lamented, "It seems to me the Coalition like the previous government goes along with this disgraceful dereliction of public duty and connivance in swindling the public. We urge them instead to put public interest and proven accountable science before ideology and failed non-science. Thank you"

Underwear Bomber Trial : Attorney Exposes U.S. False Flag Conspiracy

Attorney Kurt Haskell’s five minute statement at the trial of the infamous ‘underwear bomber’ exposes government complicity in false flag terror attacks on American citizens. Michael Leiter of the National Counter terrorism Center finally admits the U.S. Government frequently enables terrorists to attack America.

Some readers may wonder how this relates to my journalistic activism against man-made global warming fraud. Well, read on and join the dots. Yesterday Haskell, in measured voice, delivered to a stunned courtroom a devastating five-minute litany of government complicity in false flag terrorist crime. The sober-suited Michigan attorney’s damning evidence now sets the stage for him on a long road to sue the federal government in a sensational civil suit.

Haskell exposed complicity to block key evidence by a federal prosecutor who had conceded it might be “obtained by third parties, who could use it in a civil suit against the government”. Read more on this appalling revelation here.

In effect, the government admits it could be implicated in a ‘false flag’ terrorist attack on its own citizens. Such evidence would prove that restrictions on our freedoms as a consequence of the ‘war on terror’ are, in fact, acts of a self-serving government undermining and manipulating the people it was elected to serve.

If anyone is still unaware of the concept, a ‘false flag’ attack is when governments or organizations (usually connected to the former) stage highly sophisticated attacks on their own or foreign soil with the purpose of placing the blame on a desirable enemy foreign or domestic, one who has otherwise done no wrong. Essentially a setup, it provides the government entity with an excuse via fabricated evidence in complicity with media to fulfill its various agendas (i.e. war or law making). It’s here that the ‘official story’ on terror and climate change are so sinister.

For those who doubt such heinous acts are so meticulously planned by our governments then I suggest they research the 1962 Pentagon Operation Northwoods document. In it we find a covert operation rejected by murdered U.S. President John F. Kennedy, that planned to commit similar such acts. In that operation U.S. secret servicemen were to deliberately blow up ships, expending the lives of their own soldiers and civilians in order to provide an excuse for Cuban invasion.

This latest litany is yet another example of how the twisted minds of those who rule us are hell-bent to control us by fear, whether that fear be generated through the threat of possible terrorist attacks or man’s so-called climate-altering emissions of a benign trace gas, carbon dioxide.In this instance, thanks to the outspoken bravery of Kurt Haskell we still have some chance to preserve our hard-won freedoms. For too long the public have been duped by malign forces within our unprincipled governments (be they clean-cut CIA operatives or avuncular climate scientists) and all to coerce the ‘ninety-nine percent’ to the will of an ‘Elite.’

If only the mainstream media would fairly report on the apparent mendacity of our ‘public servants’ we would all be better equipped to coordinate a citizens’ lawful rebellion against this obdurate tyranny.

But then who owns the mainstream media? The blogosphere is seemingly the last bastion of honest news reporting and in our courts brave men like Kurt Haskell and Canadian climatologist, Tim Ball shall defeat this evil.

Sierra Club Caught with it’s Grubby Hand in the Gas Frakking Till

New evidence shows the Sierra Club, darling of Big Green, taking multi-million dollar clandestine payments from "fossil fuel" gas frakking company, Chesapeake Energy. The slush money was used to file lawsuits against competitors from the coal industry.

The revelations are set to trigger a howl of protests from  environmentalists sensing betrayal at the hands of the self-serving Sierra Club where insiders cash in on kick backs from the natural gas frakking fraternity.

Irish Central writer, Ed Farnan in his article, 'Sierra Club was the secret hired gun of the gas industry' details his take on how this toxic "news bombshell exploded" and why the Sierra Club had surreptitiously taken $26 million from Chesapeake Energy between 2007 and 2010.

Farnan explains just how the Sierra Club's covert strategy actually works, "What better way of cornering the market and setting yourself up as the bully on the energy block than by knocking out or crippling your main competitor in the energy industry: Coal."

The story is yet another example of how double-dealing corporates behind Big Green actually operate – underhandedly advancing their preferred hydrocarbon fuel interests while publicly paying lip service to environmentalism.

Yet coal, as Ed points out, has been "the backbone for cheap energy that has fueled Americas amazing economic growth. Great improvements in technology, especially over the past 30 years have brought us to where you can look a modern coal fired power plant smoke stack and it is hard to tell whether it is burning or not."

Meanwhile Bryan Walsh, who first broke the story (Time: February 2, 2012), pinpoints how the scandal may cause yet untold harm to the Club’s relationship with corporations.

“The chapter groups and volunteers depend on the Club to have their back as they fight pollution from any industry, and we need to be unrestrained in our advocacy,” Michael Brune, the Sierra Club’s executive director since 2010, sums it up neatly for Time. “The first rule of advocacy is that you shouldn’t take money from industries and companies you’re trying to change.”

International Scientists & Economists Expose Biofuels Boondoggle

The insanity of the biofuel boondoggle is devastatingly exposed in coordinated new action by international scientists and economists. Over 200 experts with Phd's in climate, energy and economics have put their names to a damning statement issued to European policymakers to abandon biofuels and avert a spiraling worldwide food crisis (H/T: Dr. Matthias Kleespies).

The backdrop to the latest plea for sanity is a 21st Century world of cooling temperatures and extraordinarily vast new oil and gas finds that confound last century  'peak oil' and man-made global warming fears. The experts' letter to the European Commission entitled, 'International Scientists and Economists Statement on Biofuels and Land Use' urges the EC to "recognize and account for indirect land use change impacts as a part of the lifecycle analyses of heat-trapping emissions from biofuels."

Planet Suffers Seven Percent Loss of Arable Land Due to Biofuels

Scientists are concerned that the unintended consequence of the mad rush to biofuels has inflicted a crippling loss of 7 percent of arable land to food production causing the price of basic foodstuffs to rocket in third world nations. They are issuing this heartfelt public plea for other concerned scientists to come forward and be counted by adding their names to their EC letter.

As land used for food or feed production is turned over to growing biofuel crops, agriculture has had to expand elsewhere. This has caused a totally avoidable new rush towards deforestation and destruction of other ecosystems, particularly in tropical regions in the developing world, according to the statement published by the Union of Concerned Scientists  (UCS).

Last year, after an alert from Canadian geophysicist, Norm Kalmanovitch, my report that a whopping 6.5 percent of the world’s grain is now permanently stripped from the global food supply went viral ( see: Global Warming Fraud Creates Third World Food Crisis').

Such a catastrophic cut in food supply can trigger a tipping point so that Third World hunger explodes into mass starvation. But what caused this?

The answer lies enshrined in the now discredited Kyoto Protocol, the global warming treaty that required world governments to reduce their reliance on hydrocarbon fuels and to cut emissions of carbon dioxide. However, 50 leading climate experts insist that our planet is in the midst of a stubborn cooling trend.

Global Cooling & Huge New Hydrocarbon Finds Invalidate Biofuels

So with global temperatures falling naturally this century there is no longer any compelling reason to impose starvation on the world's poor by creating an unnecessary 85 billion liters of ethanol fuel per annum to appease the dictates of the discredited UN Kyoto Protocol on Climate Change.

Add to this the fact that the world has suddenly discovered huge new reservoirs of extractable cheap oil and gas and any non-expert can readily join the dots to see that peak oil is as bogus a Chicken Little scare story as catastrophic man-made global warming.

This scandalous sham is still being propped up by the beneficiaries of these scare stories: the mega corporatists (that insidious  'one percent' ) and ecological extremist hell bent on human depopulation.

In essence, basic food staples are being remorselessly removed from the global food supply for no other reason other than to serve the misguided selfish interests of a global elite. Canadian Kalmanovitch laments, " the wealthier portion of the world’s 6.6 billion people end up paying substantially more for their food but the poor simply starve, making this Kyoto Accord a true “crime against humanity” and those who have fabricated the false science on which this crime is based are therefore guilty of being complicit in this “crime against humanity."

The UCS is thus appealing to all scientists working in related specialisms who possess key insight on this matter to add their signatures to their letter to signify a powerful message to policymakers to bring to an end the insanity of biofuels and the devastating plunder of agricultural land.
