Stop The Devastation of Peoples Lives By Speculating with No Data: Remembering Cattle And Methane Emissions

Fantastic read.

Dr Tim Ball maps out the historical proliferation of ‘methane (CH4)’ alarmism via governments and activist groups, highlighting the economic and social damage that such environmental misinformation and hysteria inflicts on our lives.

Ergo, CO2 alarmism…

Watts Up With That?

Guest Opinion: Dr. Tim Ball

Release of early data from NASA’s OCO2 satellite triggered the typical nonsense. The usual people talked about the modern equivalent of how many angels on the head of a pin, when they haven’t even established the existence of angels. The initial OCO2 data appears to show most estimates and assumptions were wrong. This might explain NASA’s hesitancy to release all the information, especially with regard to sources and sinks. If nothing else, the maps show the CO2 is not well mixed. The wider truth is that every piece of data in the climate debate is a very crude estimate created for a political or scientific agenda, including those used by many skeptics.

Kip Hansen’s essay “Are we Chasing Imaginary Numbers?”speaks to an important point about approximations. It reminded me about learning navigation and taking what was called “a three star fix”. The…

NSIDC Demonstrates How To Construct An Arctic Ice Scam

Real Science

The National Snow and Ice Data Center in Boulder, Colorado has demonstrated how to construct an Arctic ice scam. The key feature of the scam is a graph like the one below, which necessarily starts in the Arctic record cold year of 1979, and appears to show a linear loss of sea ice headed towards zero.


What you would not want to do is include the 1990 IPCC/NOAA Arctic sea ice data which shows that 1979 was a peak, and that 1974 had about 1.8 million km² less ice than 1979. that would wreck your linear trend scam.

You would also not want to include this 1971 National Geographic map showing ice extent not terribly different from 2015.

The composite map below shows that ice extent in 1971 (brown) was much less than September, 1979 ice extent. It also shows that 1971 ice was much less than the NSIDC median…
