Climate Change

The climate is the most complex system on Earth. Is it really possible to project with any precision what it will be like 20, 40, or even 100 years from now? Steve Koonin, former Undersecretary for Science in the Obama Administration, challenges the confident assumptions of climate alarmists.

Script:

Hubris is a Greek word that means dangerously overconfident. Based on my research, hubris fairly describes our current response to the issue of climate change.

Here’s what many people believe:

One: The planet is warming catastrophically because of certain human behaviors. 

Two: Thanks to powerful computers we can project what the climate will be like 20, 40, or even 100 years from now.

Three: That if we eliminate just one behavior, the burning of fossil fuels, we can prevent the climate from changing for as long we like.

Each of these presumptions—together, the basis of our hubris regarding the changing climate—is either untrue or so far off the mark as to be useless. 

Yes, it’s true that the globe is warming, and that humans are exerting a warming influence upon it. But beyond that, to paraphrase a line from the classic movie The Princess Bride, “I do not think ‘The Science’ says what you think it says.” 

For example, government reports state clearly that heat waves in the US are now no more common than they were in 1900.

Hurricane activity is no different than it was a century ago.

Floods have not increased across the globe over more than seventy years.

Greenland’s ice sheet isn’t shrinking any more rapidly today than it was 80 years ago. 

Why aren’t these reassuring facts better known?

Because the public gets its climate information almost exclusively from the media. 

And from a media perspective, fear sells. 

“Things aren’t that bad” doesn’t sell.

Very few people, and that includes journalists who report on climate news, read the actual science. I have. And what the data—the hard science—from the US government and UN Climate reports say is that… “things aren’t that bad.”

Nor does the public understand the questionable basis of all catastrophic climate change projections: computer modeling. 

Projecting future climate is excruciatingly difficult. Yes, there are human influences, but the climate is complex.  Anyone who says that climate models are “just physics” either doesn’t understand them or is being deliberately misleading. I should know: I wrote one of the first textbooks on computer modeling.   

While modelers base their assumptions upon both fundamental physical laws and observations of the climate, there is still considerable judgment involved. And since different modelers will make different assumptions, results vary widely among different models. 

Let’s just take one simple, but significant assumption modelers must make: the impact of clouds on the climate. 

Natural fluctuations in the height and coverage of clouds have at least as much of an impact on the flows of sunlight and heat as do human influences. But how can we possibly know global cloud cover say 10, let alone 50 years from now? Obviously, we can’t. But to create a climate model, we have to make assumptions. That’s a pretty shaky foundation on which to transform the world’s economy.

By the way, creating more accurate models isn’t getting any easier. In fact, the more we learn about the climate system, the more we realize how complex it is.

Rather than admit this complexity, the media, the politicians and a good portion of the climate science community attribute every terrible storm, every flood, every major fire to “climate change.” Yes, we’ve always had these weather events in the past, the narrative goes, but somehow “climate change” is making everything “worse.” 

Even if that were true, isn’t the relevant question, how much worse? Not to mention that “worse” is not exactly a scientific term. 

And how would we make it better?

For the alarmists, that’s easy: we get rid of fossil fuels.

Is There Really a Climate Emergency?

Gramps Radio 878.5K views October 25, 2021 5:00 am

March 19, 2021

Overheated rhetoric has politicized and misinformed the public about the earth’s climate. Renowned physicist Dr. S. Fred Singer’s classic book on global warming—and antidote to unscientific claims—"Hot Talk, Cold Science" has been updated and expanded (twice the size of the previous edition), incorporating numerous recent scientific findings, making this fascinating and complex subject accessible to general readers.

Dr. Singer passed away in April 2020, but not before updating and expanding his much-discussed book with the co-authors, and atmospheric scientist Anthony R. Lupo (University of Missouri) and climatologist David R. Legates (University of Delaware).

In this Lighthouse Briefing video, Dr. Lupo is interviewed by Independent Institute Executive Director Dr. Graham H. Walker. Merging recent developments in science, economics, and public policy, "Hot Talk, Cold Science, Third Edition" is a much-needed, peer-reviewed, de-coding book to a sprawling, highly technical literature, giving readers a clear understanding of what scientists and policymakers know about climate change—and what they don’t. The book allows independent thinkers to better detect and reason beyond the hyperbole and propaganda all-too-common in the politics and media coverage of this heated subject.

In the book, the authors explore the inaccuracies in historical climate data, the limitations on and failures of climate models, solar variability along with the effects of clouds, ocean currents, and sea levels on global climate, plus factors that could mitigate any human impact on world climate. This single book on climate science and policy serves as both an authoritative but accessible guide for both lay readers and those already versed in these complex and vital issues.

Dr. Anthony R. Lupo is a Research Fellow at the Independent Institute and Professor of Atmospheric Science and Principal Investigator of the Global Climate Change Group in the School of Natural Resources at the University of Missouri (MU). He received his PhD in atmosphere science from Purdue University, and he has been a Member of the Working Groups I and III for the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), Research Scholar at the Belgorod University in Russia, Fulbright Research Scholar at the Russian Academy of Sciences, Associate Editor of the Monthly Weather Review, and Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at the University at Albany. He is the author of 135 peer-reviewed publications in major scientific journals, 277 conference pre-print papers, and the contributor to numerous scholarly volumes. Dr. Lupo is also the Chief Editor of "Recent Developments in Tropical Cyclone Dynamics, Prediction, and Detection."

Is There a Climate Crisis? Science vs. Politics | Anthony R. Lupo Interview by Graham H. Walker

Professor Guus Berkhout, President of CLINTEL, the climate intelligence group out of the Netherlands, is challenging National Academies of Sciences, beginning with that of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences/KNAW where he is a member, to speak out against the flawed fundament of the Paris Agreement - namely, that 'the science is settled' on climate change.  Dr. Berkhout has sent open letters to a number of key scientific organizations. CLINTEL has published a Scientific Manifesto of 10 propositions that should govern the process of scientific inquiry, especially on matters that have great public implications, like climate change policies.  Climate change policies affect energy prices, integration and subsidies for renewables (which are 3 to 9 times the cost of conventional power), carbon taxes and various limitations or additional taxes/restrictions on public freedoms (i.e. flying, choice of electric or gas/diesel fueled vehicles, financing of mass public transit/limitation of vehicle access, etc).  In this video, Michelle Stirling, Communications Manager for Friends of Science Society, discusses a few of the key points from the CLINTEL Scientific Manifesto, which is titled:  "Audiator et Altera Pars"  (Let Both Sides Be Heard), advocating for open debate and academic freedom which is based on evidence-based scientific rigor, rather than climate models (simulations), and for the separation of politics from science.  Indeed, climate science has become so politicized, with demands for a state-run 'Green New Deal', one must consider the thought that climate policy may be a new form of Marxism.
