what's it like to be a climate change denier in 2016?

I imagine it's been pretty bad for them since the Kochs paid a skeptic for a study that definitively concluded climate change was a thing and humans caused it. 4 years ago.

skeptics keep quiet during the summer, but they'll be back out to show how they totally misunderstand the problem when we have our first winter storm of the season

Quote :
"The new Antarctic sea ice record reflects the diversity and complexity of Earth’s environments, said NASA researchers. Claire Parkinson, a senior scientist at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, has referred to changes in sea ice coverage as a microcosm of global climate change. Just as the temperatures in some regions of the planet are colder than average, even in our warming world, Antarctic sea ice has been increasing and bucking the overall trend of ice loss.

“The planet as a whole is doing what was expected in terms of warming. Sea ice as a whole is decreasing as expected, but just like with global warming, not every location with sea ice will have a downward trend in ice extent,” Parkinson said."

PSA: Go watch Before the Flood. Aired tonight on National Geographic.

For the life of me I do not get people that deny Climate Change. Like why would you be against saving the Earth and doing things to help our atmosphere?

Singles Day, the "Black Friday" for Alibaba, will generate an estimated 1 billion boxes. It will take over 2 million trees to create said boxes.

I've never really been a huge denier of global warming - I'm more in the camp of "it's cyclic but we're definitely adding to it." But it is hard for me to take our efforts as a country seriously when there are other countries doing just as much, if not more harm, to our planet.

I'm also not saying that we're better - I'm sure Black Friday racks up similar totals.

Let's just cancel Black Friday and Singles day altogether.

Seeing an "independent paper" (read: probably not in a journal) from August making the rounds on the anti-AGW blogs. Looking for rebuttals. Or is it just a "we kept it out of the journals, so we won't even comment on it because we're gate-keeping."

Daily reminder that the Koch Brothers funded a climate change denying scientist to do a research project disproving AGW. He ended up concluding that yes, the earth is warming and humans are the cause. Yet, 5 years later, people are still pretending that it isn't a thing. Woops!

^lol of course a non-peer reviewed paper is "making the round" of the conspiracy theory web. Kooks and crackpots are the only thing they have on their side.

The tldr is they are doing some funky stuff when they calculate "cumulative MEI." The link above is more precise in discussing it (some parts which are over my head) but you can tell something is up when you look at figure VI-1 in their article. It almost looks like when they calc the "cumulative MEI" it's a running average of annual MEI (although according to the link above they ACTUALLY used biannual MEI). Notice how cumulative MEI is higher in the years between 1999-2015 even though Annual MEI peaks much more frequently and higher between the years 1976-1998 (because that time period is making up for the negative peaks between 1950-1976).

So adjustments to the temperature record would decrease the 1999-2015 by too much and would decrease (and even increase temperatures during the early part of the time period) temperatures between 1976 and 1998 by too little.

This is also perfect for this convo:



http://www.skepticalscience.com/graphics.php?g=67

They are grouping years based on the ENSO effect and each group is still showing the expected warming trend. No need to come up with some new cumulative metric as in that unpublished paper. Also note this is Berkeley Earth data, which typically means temperature stations aren't "adjusted" (due to heat island, screwed up instruments, etc) but instead are statistically "smoothed" according to nearby stations (which was huge in convincing me that climate change is very real).

Every time scientist go back and revise temperature datasets, they keep finding that their original adjustments were too conservative, which is to be expected considering how science operates.

I'm really fascinated at thinking how history will remember climate science and scientist. Science should be sober and cold, at the same time a significant part of this country only seems to respond to hysterical screaming or chest beating.

Hottest year in satellite era by 0.02°C. Of course the margin of error is +/- 0.10°C.

^^I'm looking but not having any luck with that. The stated margin of error I quoted was from the blog post where I grabbed that graph.

^^^that's a long list, but for starters:
-When highly inaccurate computer models are stopped being used for policy making decisions and/or referred to as facts/evidence
-When UN IPCC policies aren't thinly veiled attempts at wealth transfer to underdeveloped nations
-When AGW figureheads like Al Gore & Bill Nye stop spreading alarmist propaganda, bad science and false information (if the evidence is so clear cut this is totally unnecessary)
-When dissenting scientists aren't forced out of their positions/have careers hurt for not toeing the in fashion/politically favored stance.
-When the IPCC reports aren't drastically altered when entered into the Summary for Policy Makers
-When AGW believers start to support the advancement and expansion of nuclear power generation. Without this I don't take any policy makers seriously as this is the single biggest thing that could be done, today, to help reduce CO2 emissions.

Everyone knew 2016 would be the hottest due to the strong El Nino. Only someone completely ignorant of global climate current events would have thought otherwise. To claim this is evidence of AGW is mostly ridiculous, unless there's evidence that AGW causes stronger El Ninos of course.

There have actually been some great discussions recently over on Scott Adams' blog:

^^^^can you link to the blog post then?

The only reason I'm making a big deal about it is
A) clicking around "watts up with that" looking for the post fucking spikes my blood pressure more than just about anything on the internet

B) that data is most likely UAH TLT version 6.0, which is still allegedly at the "beta" stage only. Meaning it's still on the review process (though not formally peer reviewed yet, that is allegedly supposed to come later). The only reporting of error I've found is in Spencer/Christy's OG blog post releasing the adjusted data and it was listed as 0.04C/decade. Calculating confidence/error is always complicated as fuck for these types of data sets so I'd like to see how they came up with a 0.1C error

No, that's not it in the least. Apologies for not ranking my bullet points, they weren't organized in any fashion.

Quote :
"-When highly inaccurate computer models are stopped being used for policy making decisions and/or referred to as facts/evidence"


So this is political and not a problem with science? I'm pretty sure on here I've never disputed the changing conditions/temperature of the planet. I've taken issue with the sometimes shady methods of collecting that data, interpreting that data, accuracy of the data, and so forth. Really no point in me digging further into the science of this as I'm sure we've already laid that argument out in this thread 10+ times.

Yeah no problem, though the blog post states the margin of error, doesn't really point a finger in the right direction - which I guess is what you're after. Just gimme a moment to pull it back up.

The authoritarian left religiously supports a problem in theory that can only be solved by more government control and regulation? No way!

If you are even remotely skeptical of a heavily-politicized theory, you are anti-science

If you religiously believe global warming/cooling/change, you are pro-science

I mean, it's not like the authoritarian left would ever value their marxist ideology over science, right?

I just like watching them get triggered when they can't respond to something they disagree with.
