And while you’re all recovering from the joy at realizing that House Haji Lugosi will make your energy costs to up by 30% in order to “address glowball wormening” by reducing emissions of CO2 which has not been linked to temperature changes (unless you’re talking about the fact that higher CO2 levels follow higher temperatures, something any first-year student of physics could tell you), we’re happy to tell you that the infamous heap of junk “science” known as the “hockey stick” has been smashed… Again.

Read the whole post, it’s pure gold all of it, but it looks like NASA, or a certain Goreacle-worshipping somebody at NASA named Hansen had been finagling his numbers for a while, refusing to release his algorithms for verification which, among intelligent lifeforms, is generally a sign of something being not quite right. So some enterprising geniuses reverse-engineered the scamgorithms that Hansen didn’t want anybody to see and reached the conclusion that the “record temperatures of the 90s” used as “proof” of the devastating effect of all of those SUVs weren’t quite, you know, records as such. Try the 1930s instead.

I just KNEW it. Glowball Wormening was clearly caused by Hitler re-arming Germany. All of those damn Volkswagens that hippies and other retards love so much DESTROYED GAIA!!!

And Hansen, much like every other Disciple of the Church of Gore, looks to be quite the little fraud.

    Greenhouse emissions don’t cause global warming. Greenhouses do. I can make a hockey stick graph correlating the temperature increase and the rise in the number of greenhouses. Therefore, Lowes and Home Depot are causing global warming.

    Anyone who has looked at this for the last twenty years can tell that both the data and the programming has been “cooked.” GIGO still operates.

    Looks like more of the real reasons for the Gaia-worshipping fucktards not wanting a “debate” are coming to light.

    First, the NYT dudes saying that, GASP!, killing the enemy mercilessly just MIGHT be working…

    Next, TNR getting their shriveled little dicks handed to ‘em on a silver platter after they published whole-cloth lies about our incredible military people, who happen to be killing said enemy mercilessly…

    Once again, I have no interest in Gore. We’re staunch Democrats, but spouse despised him so much that he wouldn’t vote for him.

    Personally, I would love for global warming not to be true. However, I would wait to see what a more reliable source has to say. It’s not that I pick and choose what I want to believe–I distrust blogs of all ideologies unless I am very familiar with their affiliations.

    1) the term for the 1934 data is “statistical outlier” I don’t want to go through it again, but it looked overall like it was cooler earlier in the century, although there were definitely exceptions.

    2) coyoteblog is the blog of a small business owner in Phoenix. He appears to be very knowledgable about global warming, but is not the cutting edge of science. His link to the guy he works with wouldn’t go through for me.

    3) I don’t know about the algorithm hiding thing. You would have to publish your alogrithm when you publish. He’s published up the ass. I downloaded the latest paper that looked the highest profile with about 15 authors. A lot of the methods are cited in previous papers, and I’m leaving on a trip tomorrow–haven’t even started the laundry. I can’t put a lot of time into this and look them all up. However he does give a web site for how the ozone calculations were done. It’s a 45 page PDF–I could only skim a few things.

    I did post within the last couple days that the junkscience guy says he found an error of one of Hansen’s calculations, but it was a late night post to Tsubaki and probably went unread. I scanned the JS site for that, but it didn’t jump out at me. Maybe I missed it.

    Also, there are other researchers, even if this guy is a screw-up.

    Hey call ‘34 or ‘21 outliers all you want. The simple fact is the reverse engineering of his algorithms coupled with his rather outspoken views, should tell most rational, sentient beings that the majority of the mythology of the Church of Gaia’s Great Goreacle is based on BULLSHIT. Virtually each, ever more somber, chicken-little proclamation used this as it’s baseline, including the IPCC.

    That wasn’t too bad.

    The research I’ve seen looked at temperatures over the past million years. I don’t think they can go any further back. Primordial ooze temp isn’t really relevant anyway. It was such a weird atmosphere.

    There is other research besides the hockey stick. My interest is in having a good climate. I hope the whole thing is a crock and that I was wrong to argue in favor of the theory. But it worries me that it might not be. I would agree with you about temp preferences.

    Why are you posting from Florida when you should be out here with the Zaca Fire? Did you not know that any area in which I live is therefore the center of the universe? I freaked when I saw we bordered 2 of the 4 fire zones.

    Yeah, with the Earth having a MUCH higher “mean temperature” many times in that short (geologically-speaking) timespan. Hell, only a mere 15,000 years ago there was a 1.5 MILE-THICK ICE SHEET covering the majority of North America. Tell us, again, how those woolly mammoths caused that thing to melt in the blink of a gnat’s eye? (Geologically-speaking, again.) Were they driving around in Mastodon Motors™ SUV’s?

    As a researcher in the UK, recently ’splained, a change in diet can significantly reduce the methane gas produced by mammalians (and reduce AGW). Maybe the Mammoths went to a high-methane diet, from the Mastodon Motors other business, Woolly Bully’s Burritos™?

    Actually, JB, I think the extraordinary amount of heat was the friction of a young (relatively-speaking) Helen Thomas’ labia rubbing together while she was running after the Eeeevil Neo-Anderthal, President BVSH (the “U” hadn’t been invented yet), trying to get him to admit that he’d made a mistake by invading the peaceful village of Irock.

    Good to know that I’m neither rational nor sentient, but then how could I post?

    Show me a reliable scientific source about the reverse engineering of the algorithms, and I’ll take it very seriously. I’ve been trying. My browser won’t open up the Watts site. I looked up the latest issue of Science, to see if it’s discussed in there, which is not. It may well be true, but for me right now it’s hype on a blog. If it’s real, it will show up in more legitimate places. Then I’ll study it. I did look at the NASA data, but the graphs based on them didn’t look all that differerent.

    I’ll be away for a few days. It will get wide coverage if it’s true, and my addiction to current events should pay off.

    You know there are other researchers in the field using different approaches. If a theory consisted of one person’s work, that would be really odd.

    Like I posted above, I hope the global warming theory is wrong. I don’t know why you’re being so hostile to me because I don’t believe information from a blog I don’t know anything about. Especially since it appears to have been wrong about the algorithms being hidden. Also, one person’s claims mean very little. They need to be analyzed and verified by other people before you can take them as being true. Wouldn’t it be kind of suspicious that the basic information used would be wrong? That kind of thing gets checked, especially the basic temp info. That’s not like some complicated equation that could have a variable wrong.

    That text in that blog looks like it was lifted from somewhere. They cite Tigerhawk, but .com looks like some kind of company

    PsychoChick:

    No, I was talking about the “professional” Greenies. There is a difference betwen people who show normal concern for the environment (don’t litter, clean up the sewage, etc.), and the people like alBore, Dr. Hansen (of NASA’s Goddard Institute), and other control freaks. The ones who make money screaming “The Sky Is Falling!”, and the political class that pander to them to expand their own power. Perhaps I should have made such clearer in the post.

    Wait on it, PC. More news is coming down the pike on this issue.

    Did you know that about 10% of the world’s weather recording points were in the old Soviet Union? After the disolution of the CCCP, the points were ignored, left to rot, dropped like a bad habit, due to lack of funding. Now, Russia, et al., is a pretty frigid area. When the data was lost from these sites that were no longer reporting, was any correction applied? Not a chance. Take a wild guess where this time period is on the famous “Hockey Stick”.

    That’s just one example of what I mean.

    I have a long and extensive “Better Dead” list (although not nearly as long as a few years ago. :em93: ) You are not on it. I do not, and have never had an issue with someone who disagrees with me, so long as it is an HONEST disagreement. However, koolaid drinkers and frauds should avoid being alone with me.

    the coyoteblog guy has an engineering degree from Princeton and an MBA from Harvard, so he would probably be a good one to analyze data. I was wrong to dismiss him. I still wouldn’t believe anything he says until it gets discussed in the scientific literature. I was trying to get a better grip on his arguments, but its 4:30 AM. The manner in which he questions other people’s high profile work leads me to question his.

    I will be out of town just to let you know in case I ignore a post that I should be answering. I will link this thread in case somewhat wants to discuss or harangue me. Normally, I would pop in from wifi, but spouse really hates this blog for several reasons (including making me more argumenative), so it might be wise not to visit.

    When I get back, I am going to go hardcore into the lit on the hockeystick model. Historically, it’s really complicated, and there’s pro and con, leaning to pro with the hardcore science journals. I’m curious how the numbers issue will shake out. I will devote a week to it if I need to. By the way, this is not a trivial undertaking. It would take a very long time to review GW lit. I’m going to try to just stay focused on this issue.

    That is disturbing about USSR data collection. I do want to read up more on the temp collecting issues. There was something about freezers being installed and the temp changing at that collection center. I woud be ecsatic if the model weren’t true, but there are other lines of evidence that I’m too tired to go into.

    Well, I’m glad you don’t want to kill me, but I didn’t really think you did.

    Me thinks that it was due to the Nuclear testing and the Nuclear explosions that the global warming trend during the first half of the 20th Century was reverted. Since, according to the “Experts”, the temperatures are back on the rise, we should, without wasting more time, choose a couple of good targets and nuke them dead. It’s for the children, you know?

    A few weeks ago, Kim du Toit posted on this article, which talks about the controversy, and from there I was able to locate this site containing the work of one of the two people who first looked into the Hockey Stick graph issue.

    According to McKitrick’s site, their main site, Climateaudit.org, is currently down, apparently due to a DDoS attack. Interesting.

    Oh, and according to Card’s article, McIntyre and McKitrick actually found Mann’s original code, as well as the “duplicate” data, because it turned out to have been stored somewhere that was accessible to the public (just never identified as such, and apparently placed there accidentally). And yes, they are the ones who first found that the Hockey Stick turns up even if you feed it randomly generated data.

    OT, but this makes my blood boil.

    Illegal immigrant rapes 5 year old. 5 years old! Then threatens the family if they report him. Murders execution style 3 college students. But here is what makes my blood boil. This could have been prevented.

    Immigration officials apparently were aware of Carranza’s illegal status since his prior arrests, according to Essex County Sheriff Armando Fontoura.

    I still wouldn’t believe anything he says until it gets discussed in the scientific literature. I was trying to get a better grip on his arguments, but its 4:30 AM. The manner in which he questions other people’s high profile work leads me to question his.

    It’s easy, Psychochick…the liberal schmucks at NASA actually determined he was correct and thusly changed their mistakes. For them to a) admit they were wrong, and b) to believe one of the Nazi-esque Gore-Dismissers who is questioning their unquestionable data, it surely makes it clear that he’s got his shit together.

    Even the faulty data discredited the Gorebats - if global temps peaked in 1998, that means there hasn’t been any warming since 1998.

    I’m . . like . . really torn on that one. Caracas and their Clown-in-Chief barely rise above the level of aggravation (so far, of course). They can’t do that much damage, short term (being as there are only a couple of refieries outside the U.S. capable of handling the crappy sludge oil), so, for entertainment sake, I’m willing to put up with a bit of their barking and yapping.

    ‘Course, someday, they will piss me off personally, and then we go straight to “Kill them all, GOD will surely know His own!” on the silly bastiches.

    Staci,

    Yeah, I heard about the arrest, hearing it on Nightline last night. But, I did not hear that the creep was an illegal, or had previously raped a 5 years old. And he has the nerve to say that he’s not quilty when his prints were found at the scene. What was he doing there, selling ice cream to those 4 kids before 3 of them got whacked and the fourth one got wounded? Please, give me more credit for knowing a sack of garbage when I see one. If he was so innocent why in the world did he do the drama to give himself up to the mayor? Probably hoping that they’ll take it easy on him when he’s found quilty by a jury of his so-call peers. I hope not. I hope they’ll makee an example of, along with the rest of the scum who did the deed with him. *SPIT* :em96:

    Oh yeah we’re just warming, and warming, and warming.

    Here it is August, in Louisiana, and with our central AC running 24/7 (set to 78 degrees), and a window unit in the bedroom running 24/7 (about the same setting) and a window unit in the livingroom running in the afternoons (we have an old house) our electric bill was an astounding $150.00.

    I just wish these fucking assholes would leave power generation to the power companies. Fine, do not let them deliberately or negligently poison their customers, but leave it there. As a resident of Central Kalifornia I have first hand experience with govermental ineptitude. Let’s not talk about the five hundred and fifty dollar PG&E bill I had last July…….. Yes, a big time heat wave, triple digits for weeks. But those of us here know all too well what our boys in Sacramento have done to us. You can’t build generation plants, we import power often now. And this state generates enormous amounts of power. You see huge windmills on the hills, ungly fucking things they are, and now they kill eagles. The only pretty windmills I ever saw were on Holland or on small farms. You can’t win with these people. Yet I drive underneath those massive power towers in parallel with the one fifty-two on my way home. Now that our state is being overrun with illegals, we need more power……. As for me, I got tired of this shit, dropping ten grand making my house energy efficient, new HVAC, the gauntlet. My bill this july one hundred and thirteen, with AC running. And thanks to the ecofreaks preventing or delaying construction of new plants, I have deemed it incumbent to own two small generators, a one kilowatt and four kilowatt. Enough to run wall unit AC units the fridge and this computer. Yeah, I get pissed off……

    1) the term for the 1934 data is “statistical outlier” I don’t want to go through it again, but it looked overall like it was cooler earlier in the century, although there were definitely exceptions.

    Considering similar data to the 1934 data repeated in 1921, 1931, 1953, 1938, 1990, 2001, 2006, etc… we’re not looking at statistical outliers. We’re looking at a cyclical pattern. *one* incident could be an outlier. Several incidents spread apart is more likely indicative of a larger pattern.

    I still wouldn’t believe anything he says until it gets discussed in the scientific literature.

    Like Nature, the ’scientific literature’ magazine with an established editorial bent towards global warming theory and a reputation for refusing to publish anything that refutes it? Or Scientific American, which does basically the same thing?

    Speaking of Dracula, I’ve suggested that the world needs more vampires to fight global warming. They use little power for lighting, sleeping during the day and avoiding bright lights at night. They don’t need to cook. They can fly, so they don’t need to use cars as much. The ultimate in carbon footprint reduction.
