This e-mail discovery is great! I didn't even need this to believe Global Warming was a myth. But it sure is great to be vindicated!

This is on the same level as Enron. Scientists cooking the books to get more grant money.

This e-mail scandal is the "Jump the Shark" moment for the Global Warming Alarmists!

I am arguing nothing of the sort there spanky. I am saying there is a bunch of information getting ignored while everyone screams "FRAUD" at the tops of their lungs.

Fraud is an intent to deceive. The documents that I linked explain what they were doing and why. When pulling averages from multiple sources you can have a source under shade, a source on a tall freight liner, a source directly on the water etc. etc.. At any given time not all would be reporting back, some could even report impossible data.

The modifications are for homogeneous data. Not for deception.

Certainly, with such a drastic reduction in overall carbon emissions (according to EPA numbers), we should certainly see some sort of "local area" temperature reduction over a 36-year time frame, yes?

— Doc Velocity


Here is an article showing that from 1970-2005 coastal California had a decline in it's summer temperatures.

findarticles.com...

Of course, there is many who speculate the cause....

One speculation is increased cloud cover. Well I wrote an article on ATS explaining how human pollution can cause droughts by seeding clouds constantly, and not allowing large cloud formations to form. A reduction in emissions can probably cause more cloud cover....

That all is besides the point anyway. You can not determine if CO2 effects the weather by just watching CO2 levels because there are many other factors that come into play. If you would have watched the video I put in the OP it explains a lot of that.

For instance, solar activity could have changed the results. So even if CO2 levels are down, and it is effectively cooling the Earth, a large Sun spot can come along and ruin all that cooling. It could even evaporate water which then releases CO2 that the water had trapped in it, along with other greenhouse gases.

Of course they are, the work is seen as tainted, it was seen as such before anyone even asked the CRU what it was, before the CRU even had a chance to address it the website "climategate.org" had already gone into full gear.. They could bring out a thousand feet of micro printed data on paper and hold panels ever hour for a year and people would still accuse them of fraud. Every senator would constantly scream about it to assist whatever lobby hurled them a hawaiian vacation that week.

There is no point in wasting the energy on it under the mass-scale attack. It is better to focus on other data to try and find a solution. People care more about knee-jerk reactions and dramatic language than they care about facts and evidence.

I realize it is all over the code. I have actually looked it over as well as websites that scream it is proof of something nefarious.

I am saying you need to actually investigate the reasoning that they did it. Which is clearly defined in published papers. Whether the method was correct or not is one thing. To claim it is fraud though without actually looking into things shows a lack of caring about what is actually going on, and more interest in chest thumping.

And I raise with this:

snip


As for decisions about the most appropriate baseline period to use for the
series, that is as you point out an important issue and one we have to
consider with some circumspection, especially if a "modern" calibration
(e.g., 1931-1960) to the instrumental record gives a substantially
different alignment
from the more 19th century-oriented calibration you describe. The tradeoff
of course is that the instrumental series itself is considerably less certain
prior to the 20th century while, as you point out, the non-climatic influence
on tree growth may be setting in by the mid 20th century. Something I think
we can iron out satisfactorily at the next juncture.

You just showed either A you don't know how to read, or B you just don't know what they are talking about.

The purpose of using tree ring data is to find the temperature of the area. However, their tree ring data was showing a decline in temperature, when in actuality their records of temperature changes from other measruing devices show differently.

You just quoted them saying that they have more accurate temperature data than what is found on the trees. Since they don't have accurate temperature data before 1960, they had to use the trees data...

You don't even know what you are quoting!

Let's clear up another misconception, then, while we're at it... Land-based vegetation is not the primary CO2 "scrubber" on planet Earth. The Earth's oceans — covering over 70% of the planet's surface in a life-bearing medium that supports uncounted billions of tons of carbon-absorbing plant life in a water column 2 miles deep on average — is the primary "scrubber" of CO2 in Earth's atmosphere.

We could wipe out the entire Amazonian rain forest tomorrow without significantly impacting the Earth's capacity for absorbing and storing atmospheric CO2.

That's the oceans' job.

Beyond that, in the USA, we have actually replenished more forested lands than originally existed on this continent at the time of its discovery by western explorers in the 15th century. That's right, the North American continent now has more forested lands than it did 500 years ago.

So much for the "mass deforestation" theory.

Ummm...CO2 is in lime water normally. Now unless there has been a massive change in the oceans turning them into salted soft drinks, I have to wonder how you get CO2 from H2O without adding a carbon and oxygen molecule.

As I said before, research your information.

yeah?

what exactly is your point?

what part of this are you not understanding?

explain to me why the proxy data before 1960 is valid while the proxy data after 1960 is not valid.

all they do is say a "non-temperature signal" causes a divergence, they do not provide an explanation as to what caused the "non-temperature signal".

Without an explanation, THAT MEANS ALL THE PROXY DATA IS GARBAGE BECAUSE IT COULD ALL BE SUBJECT TO THE SAME "NON TEMPERATURE SIGNAL"

TOTAL FRAUD!

I am sorry, perhaps you should re-read what I said. I did not indicate anything about the priority of it's role. I simply said it would logically slow down the scrub process. ie: less scrubbing units = less being scrubbed at any given time.

This means the tree rings were showing drops that were contradicted by things such as observable thermometers.

The trees were showing things that were not backed up by the local weatherman and thermometer data.

In otherwords the trees that were cited were being affected by another force which tainted the data.

(edit to add some more clarity)
This also implies that other dating methods were backing up the data otherwise used to sample for homogeneous data.

Once again you show your lack of knowledge on this subject.

The oceans (water) are natural carbon sinks. They absorb CO2. However when the oceans are warmed, they loose their ability to absorb CO2 and they actually release CO2 they have captured.

How you don't know this is far beyond me. And why you are even daring to debate without basic knowledge of this is even more illogical.

You can now stop posting on this topic since you just proved you don't even know the basics of how CO2 interacts with Earth.

Then we should see a much more erratic progression of atmospheric CO2 levels over the life history of the Earth; for, while land-based vegetation has never been a constant in the Earth's capacity to process CO2, the Earth's oceans have been uniformly constant in scrubbing the atmosphere for hundreds of millions of years — much more constant than the transient plant life of Earth's limited land masses.

And I comprehended your writing quite well the first time — you're an eloquent and intelligent communicator.

You are aware that the oceans only absorb ONE THIRD of CO2 in the atmosphere right? So that means we are creating more CO2 than the oceans can handle.

Also, warming of any type limits the oceans ability to absorb CO2. So it's not constant.
