    MANIPULATING THE WEATHER FOR WAR

    In his 1931 book The Scientific Outlook, Lord Bertrand Arthur Russell,

    DISCUSSED MANIPULATING THE WEATHER.

    “It may be that God made the world,” Russell proclaimed, “that is no reason why we should not make it over.” (in 1950 he was the winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature)

    THE WEATHER MODIFICATION TECHNIQUE AND DEVELOPMENT AS AN INSTRUMENT OF WAR USED SEEDING UNITS COMPOSED OF SILVER IODIDE WERE STARTED IN 1949 AT THE NAVAL WEAPONS CENTER IN CHINA LAKE CALIFORNIA.

    WEATHER MODIFICATION (CLOUD SEEDING) WAS USED AS AN INSTRUMENT OF WAR 1966 IN VIETNAM.

    Cumulative rainfall into midweek could surpass a foot across the northern California coast ranges and west-facing slopes of the Sierra Nevada. Two to 8 inches of rain are expected across the Sacramento and San Joaquin valleys.

     “THE SIEGE OF STORMS HAS THE POTENTIAL TO WIPE OUT OR GREATLY ERASE THE LONG-TERM DROUGHT CONDITIONS IN THE REGION,” ACCUWEATHER SENIOR METEOROLOGIST ALEX SOSNOWSKI SAID.

    The rain will have a hard time absorbing into the soil with each passing storm. AS A RESULT, INCIDENTS OF URBAN FLOODING, RIVER FLOODING, MUDSLIDES AND ROCK SLIDES WILL ONLY INCREASE INTO MIDWEEK.

    Significant flooding, mudslides and rock slides were reported shortly after the first wave of rain moved ashore on Sunday.

Since 1980, droughts have cost the United States more than $200 billion. The drought last year caused widespread and serious impacts for communities, agriculture, industry and the environment. As drought is predicted to continue in the coming years and as communities throughout the United States face significant water-security challenges, it is a crucial time to evaluate and develop new strategies at the national level.

     Albedo modification  AKA…. “geoengineering”
    ————————————
    Unedited full text

    Budgetmakers in the U.S. Senate want the Department of Energy (DOE) to study the possibility of making Earth reflect more sunlight into space to fight global warming. Earth’s reflectivity is known as its albedo, and the request to study “albedo modification” comes in the details of a proposed spending bill passed by the Senate appropriations committee to fund DOE, the Army Corps of Engineers, and related agencies for fiscal year 2017, which begins 1 October. The bill does not specify how much money should be spent on the research.

    Critics argue that albedo modification and other “geoengineering” schemes are risky and would discourage nations from trying to reduce their emissions of carbon dioxide, the heat-trapping gas that comes from the burning of fossil fuels and that is causing global warming by absorbing increasing amounts of energy from sunlight. Still, climate researchers say they should find out what its potential of albedo modification might be.

    “The recommendation is great,” says Joyce Penner, an atmospheric scientist at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. Albedo modification “is not a solution to global warming, it is only a way to avoid, perhaps, a tipping point in the climate.” David Keith, an atmospheric physicist at Harvard University, says, “Ignorance is not a good basis for making decisions, so learning more about this is extremely valuable even if we find out that it will never work.” Keith adds, however, that the few existing studies suggest albedo modification could help ameliorate some effects of global warming.

    The call for further research comes in a bill that would provide $5.4 billion for DOE’s Office of Science next year. It also builds on the recommendations of a February 2015 report from the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) entitled Climate Intervention: Reflecting Sunlight to Cool Earth. That report warned explicitly that albedo modification shouldn’t be deployed now because the risks and benefits were far too uncertain. Still, the committee urged further research to find out what those risks and benefits might be.

    The Senate appropriations committee wants DOE to do that research. “As other nations have launched research programs on albedo modification, the Committee recommends the Department review the findings of the NAS report … and leverage existing computational and modeling capabilities to explore potential impacts of albedo modification,” says a report that accompanies the Senate budget bill. The direction is included in a section outlining priorities for the Office of Science program in biological and environmental research, which currently has an annual budget of $609 million.

    Albedo modification would work by lacing the atmosphere with tiny particles or aerosols that would reflect sunlight and mimic natural processes. For example, in 1991 the volcano Mount Pinatubo in the Philippines spewed 20 million tons of sulfur dioxide into the stratosphere, which spans altitudes from 10 to 50 kilometers. There, the sulfur dioxide produced aerosols that reflected enough sunlight to reduce global temperature by an estimated 0.3°C for 3 years. Albedo modification might also work by using aerosols to seed cloud formation in a lower atmospheric layer called the troposphere.

    However, the NAS report also noted that the potential effects of albedo modification remain poorly understood and quantified. Scientists lack even the observational tools to measure the effects of albedo modification, the report states. To make up for those shortcomings, the report called for a research program, including smaller scale field trials, whose goal “should be to improve understanding of the range of climate and other environmental effects of albedo modification, as well as understanding of unintended impacts.”

    For decades studying albedo modification has been taboo in the United States, Keith says, for fear that it would distract from the ultimate goal of zeroing out carbon emissions. But given the potentially catastrophic effects of global warming, scientists have an obligation to study the idea, he says. “Because the burden will fall so disproportionately on the poor I think there’s a moral imperative to do it,” he says.

    Even if albedo modification won’t work, the research would pay big dividends, Penner predicts. Among the most uncertain elements in climate models are the effects of aerosols and their interactions with clouds—just the things involved in albedo modification—she says. Because of those uncertainties, researchers can estimate only that doubling atmospheric carbon dioxide from preindustrial levels would increase global temperature between 1°C and 5°C. “If we knew the aerosol forcing we could reduce that range,” Penner says.

    If the federal government turns a blind eye to albedo modification, the research will be done anyway by countries such as China and researchers sponsored by nongovernmental organizations such as the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Keith says.

    So the real choice is between exploring albedo modification openly or in relative secrecy, he says: “I believe in sunshine and democracy, and I really think this should be done by the U.S. government and in a transparent way.”

    The Senate language is a long way from becoming law. The full Senate has yet to act on the measure, which ultimately would have to be reconciled with DOE spending levels approved by the House of Representatives. Any final bill would have to be signed by the president.

    Carbon Dioxide Removal and Reliable Sequestration
    Reflecting Sunlight to Cool Earth
    CLIMATE INTERVENTION IS NO SUBSTITUTE
    for reductions in carbon dioxide emissions andadaptation efforts aimed at reducing the negative consequences of climate change. However, as our planet enters a period of changing climate never before experienced in recorded human history, interest is growing in the potential for deliberate intervention in the climate system to counter climate change.
    ——–
    This study assesses the potential impacts, benefits, and costs of two different proposed classes of climate intervention:
    (1) carbon dioxide removal and
    (2) albedo modification (reflecting sunlight). Carbon dioxide removal strategies address a key driver of climate change, but research is needed to fully assess if any of these technologies could be appropriate for large-scale deployment. Albedo modification strategies could rapidly cool the planet’s surface but pose environmental and other risks that are not well understood and therefore should not be deployed at climate-altering
    scales; more research is needed to determine if albedo modification approaches could be viable in the future.
    ———————————————-
    To date, most research on countering the impacts of climate change has focused on
    mitigating climate change by reducing greenhouse gas emissions or on adapting human and natural systems to make them more resilient to the effects of a changing climate. In contrast, climate intervention—purposeful intervention in the climate system to counter climate change—has received little attention.
    ———————————————–
    Despite growing interest in climate intervention (also called geoengineering)
    ———————————————————————-
    over recent years, there is a lack of information on the impacts, benefits, and costs of these technologies. These reports provide a scientific assessment to help inform the technological, ethical, legal, economic, and political discussions surrounding the topic of climate intervention.
    ———————————————————-
    Box 1.
    Proposed Climate Intervention Strategies
    This study considers two proposed classes of climate intervention:

    Carbon dioxide removal strategies would actively remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and sequester it reliably.–

    Albedo modification strategies would reduce the amount of sunlight absorbed by Earth in order to cool the planet’s surface.
    As the Committee analyzed specific carbon dioxide removal and albedo modification
    strategies, it became apparent that there are vast differences in the research needs, and the extent of the environmental and social risks associated with the two classes of approaches.This led the Committee to separate the climate intervention topics considered in this study into two separate reports
    ———————————————–
    Box 2.
    Carbon Dioxide Removal Strategies
    Considered in This Study
    •Changes in land use management to enhance natural carbon sinks such as forests and agricultural lands
    •Accelerated weathering in the ocean and on land to enhance natural processes that remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere •Bioenergy with carbon capture and sequestration
    •Direct air capture and sequestration of carbon dioxide
    •Ocean iron fertilization to boost phytoplankton growth
    and enhance take-up of carbon dioxide
    ———————————
    Box 3.
    Albedo Modification Strategies Considered in This Study
    •Stratospheric aerosols that help reflect sunlight back into space
    •Marine cloud brightening to enhance reflection of sunlight
    ———————————————————————-
    ALBEDO MODIFICATION POSES POORLY UNDERSTOOD RISKS
    Theoretical and observational data indicate albedo modification has the potential to offset some of the consequences of global warming within years and at a relatively low direct cost. However, deploying albedo modification techniques at climatically important scales
    would bring an array of environmental, social, legal, economic, ethical, and political risks.

    CONCLUSION
    Climate change is a global challenge, and addressing it will require a portfolio of responses with varying degrees of risk and efficacy. There is no substitute for dramatic reductions in greenhouse gas emissions to mitigate the negative consequences of climate change, together with adaptation of human and natural systems to make them more resilient to changing climate.
    However, if society ultimately decides to intervene in Earth’s climate,
    the Committee most strongly recommends any such actions be informed by a far more substantive body of scientific research—
    encompassing climate science and economic, political, ethical, and other dimensions—than is available at present ———————————————————-

    The call for further research comes in a bill that would provide $5.4 billion for DOE’s Office of Science next year.

And, he said, There is a 17 page thing that will give them about 70% and another 12th grade level thing that will give them 90% of Everything CITIZENS Need to Know? ABOUT CLIMATE CHANGE? NATIONAL SECURITY? AND PUBLIC POLICY?

    ———————————————–
    What is the point of this academic exercise? It seems to be to indoctrinate CITIZENS by using K-12 literature to establish the same positive political feedback loop around global warming that has existed between the federal government and the nation’s colleges and universities for the past two decades.

    The unedited comment
    Ice Station Obama
    Wayne MADSEN 06.06.2014 00:00
    Although President Obama’s «pivot to Asia» is receiving media attention, his little-known push to establish American hegemony over THE RAPIDLY MELTING ARCTIC POLAR ZONE HAS GONE LARGELY UNNOTICED. Using three NATO allies, all of them monarchies, Obama is trying to establish a U.S.-led condominium of the United States, Canada, Norway, and Denmark over the Arctic,
    CONSPICUOUSLY LEAVING RUSSIA OUT OF THE EQUATION.
    Obama’s military and intelligence push into the Arctic could be taken from the pages of the 1960s Cold War thriller by Alistair MacLean, «Ice Station Zebra», WITH THE DEPLETION OF THE ARCTIC ICE PACK OPENING UP FORMERLY NON-NAVIGABLE ARCTIC MARITIME ZONES TO SHIPPING, Obama and his Wall Street handlers are eyeing the Arctic as America’s new region for natural resource exploitation. And, as always, the Pentagon and the U.S. intelligence Community are ready to act as the centurions for the investment bankers and hedge fund tycoons.
    U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel’s Arctic Strategy was unveiled in Halifax in November 2013. Hagel said the Pentagon’s «Arctic Strategy» is centered upon the U.S. bolstering its military capabilities in the Arctic region with the opening of new sea lanes for natural resource «exploration»,
    THE FIRST STEP OF THE OBAMA «POLAR PIVOT» HAS BEEN TO MILITARIZE IT UNDER THE NATO UMBRELLA. The Svalbard Treaty of 1920, ratified by 40 nations, agreed to demilitarize the Norwegian-owned Arctic archipelago of Svalbard and to permit commercial activities on the islands by the signatories. Only Norway and Russia (and the former Soviet Union) exercised the right to commercially exploit the resources of the islands, mainly by mining coal. Russia has largely withdrawn its commercial interests from the islands with only some 370 Russians and Ukrainians remaining in Svalbard, many of them living at the mining community in Barentsburg, the Russian research station at Ny-Ålesund, and the small mining outpost at Sveagruva.
    A dependency of Norway, Svalbard has seen its Norwegian population grow with many of the Norwegians living in the capital of Longyearbyen. As signatories of the Svalbard Treaty, Americans, Canadians, and Britons are free to travel and reside on Svalbard without restrictions imposed by Norwegian authorities. Americans first started to arrive in Svalbard as part of the team that oversees the operation of the Svalbard Global Seed Vault, a project of Global Crop Diversity Trust, which stores most of the world’s crop and botanical varieties in an underground vault.
    Russia believes that NATO has violated the Svalbard Treaty by covertly operating military functions at the Svalbard Satellite Station at Ny-Ålesund, which is connected to Harstad and Andoya, Norway by the Svalbard Undersea Cable System. Andoya was the site of a Norwegian Sound Surveillance System (SOSUS) array, art of the U.S. Integrated Undersea Surveillance System (IUSS) that acoustically tracked Soviet and Russian submarines. There is a belief that the Norwegians have continued to employ acoustic intelligence devices against the Russians and that Svalbard is part of the Norwegian monitoring activities, in violation of the Svalbard Treaty. The U.S. also maintains a Globus II HAVE STARE radar station in Vardo in the Norwegian Arctic, which is used to collect electronic intelligence for the U.S. National Security Agency from Russian military targets across the Norwegian border.
    THE MUSHROOM-LIKE RADOME THAT CONCEALS THE HAVE STARE RADAR IS A TELL-TALE SIGN OF A U.S. MILITARY-INTELLIGENCE PRESENCE.
    RADOMES HAVE APPEARED IN INCREASING NUMBERS FROM THE NATIONAL SECURITY BASE AT MENWITH HILL, ENGLAND to northern Norway, Svalbard, Greenland, Iceland, the Faeroes, northern Canada, and even remote and uninhabited Jan Mayen Island in the Norwegian Sea.
    ———————————————————————————–
    my comment
    And, MUSHROOM-LIKE RADOMES HAVE APPEARED IN INCREASING NUMBERS, even in remote areas of the Olympic Peninsula in WA STATE U.S.A ….
    ————————————————————–
    Complementing America’s operations in Svalbard and Norway is the increasing use by NATO of Sweden’s Arctic Lapland for military purposes. Most NATO activities in Sweden involve NEAT, which stands for NATO Exercises and Advanced Testing.
    The U.S. is also expanding its military presence at the Thule airbase in Greenland as part of the U.S. Air Force 21st Space Wing’s missile defense network. Thule provides missile launch sensor data to the North American Air Defense Command (NORAD) and the Air Force Space Command. A number of Greenland «home rule» governments have wanted the United States to withdraw its military forces from Greenland but Washington and Denmark, which remains the sovereign authority over Greenland through the contrivance of calling Greenland a self-governing country within the «Kingdom of Denmark,» have rejected Greenlandic calls for the demilitarization of Greenland. The «kingdom» contrivance has also been used to keep the independence-minded Faeroe Islands in the Norwegian Sea firmly under Denmark’s, and by default, NATO’s, control. The Faeroes and Greenland are part of Denmark’s Joint Arctic Command, which in turn reports to NATO.
    Although Greenland’s Prime Minister Aleqa Hammond of the social democratic Siumut Party favors independence, she, like other past leaders, face determined opposition from Washington and Copenhagen, where NATO lobbyists exercise final say. Hammond stated «We will stand up as a people and demand what is rightfully ours.» According to a document found in the CIA archives, The U.S. has always believed it has ultimate authority over Greenland. And Denmark has not always been such an obedient slave to the dictates of Washington. A formerly TOP SECRET CIA document, dated January 31, 1947, states that the U.S. Minister to Denmark, Josiah P. Marvel, Jr., raised the issue of Greenland with the Danish Foreign Minister, Gustav Rasmussen. The U.S., at the time, was interested in wresting control of Greenland from Denmark to use it as a military base against the Soviet Union. When Marvel insisted on discussing the future of Greenland with Rasmussen, the Danish Foreign Minister replied, «While we owe much to America, I do not feel we owe them the whole island of Greenland.»
    What a difference a generation makes. Former Danish Prime Minister and outgoing NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen, nicknamed the «Fogh of War» by his many critics, handed Greenland to the United States on a Georg Jensen silver platter and warned the Faeroes not to even think about independence. Whatever the Americans paid for Rasmussen’s knee-jerk loyalty, it was worth it to Washington.
    U.S. dominance over the Arctic is spelled out in the Pentagon’s National Strategy for the Arctic Region, a policy that was developed under the stewardship of Daniel Y. Chiu, the deputy assistant secretary of defense for strategy. Chiu sees the rapid climate change that is affecting the Arctic facilitating a greater U.S. naval and other military presence in the region.
    Last February, U.S. forces participated in the first airborne operation north of the Arctic Circle. The exercise, codenamed SPARTAN PEGASUS, saw paratroopers from the Army’s 25th Infantry Division parachute into Deadhorse on Alaska’s North Slope.
    In 2012, the commander of the U.S. Northern Command (NORTHCOM) and NORAD signed the Tri-Command Framework for Arctic Cooperation with the Commander of Canadian Joint Operations Command. The agreement «enhances military cooperation to support safety, security and defense operations in the region.» NORTHCOM has assumed sole responsibility for military operations in the Arctic region, placing Greenland, Svalbard, Jan Mayen Island, and the North Pole within NORTHCOM’s jurisdictional domain.
    And NORTHCOM has not been shy about ORDERING U.S. FIGHTER PLANES TO ENGAGE RUSSIAN MILITARY AIRCRAFT in dangerous «cat-and-mouse» games over the Bering Sea between Siberia and Alaska.
    NORTHCOM has increased its presence in Canada’s first Inuit-ruled territory, Nunavut. In March, NORTHCOM conducted Exercise ARCTIC WARRIOR/GUERRIER NORDIQUE in Iqaluit, Nunavut. The Stephen Harper government in Ottawa has increasingly stymied the rights of Native Canadians over the natural resources on their lands. The presence of NORTHCOM military units in the Nunavut capital of Iqaluit last March was a message by Ottawa and Washington to the local leaders that their self-government has «limits,» just like those imposed by Washington and Copenhagen on their Inuit cousins in Greenland. The same restrictions by the neo-colonialists of Ottawa and Washington will be imposed on the emerging Deline Gotine nation, the first native Canadian self-governing entity in Canada’s Northwest Territories. In addition, the people of Deline Gotine will have no authority to ban natural gas fracking in their territory.
    NATO has urged Denmark and Canada to resolve a dispute over ownership of Hans Island, a 1.3 kilometer barren uninhabited island between Greenland and Canada’s Ellesmere Island. The island will be ruled as a shared condominium between Canada and Denmark. Left out of the agreement are Greenland and Nunavut, the two Inuit governments that actually would have had no problems resolving sovereignty issues between the same native people. HOWEVER, IN THE ARCTIC, THE DECISIONS ARE MADE IN WASHINGTON, WHILE THE NATO PUPPETS OF OTTAWA, COPENHAGEN, AND OSLO OBEDIENTLY WAG THEIR TAILS.

     HOW WILL PEOPLE KEEP THEIR FAMILIES WARM?

    Historically, even in a normal WEATHER year, using outdated data from on line

    In 2009, poison control centers reported 3,551cases of CO exposure among

    children ages 19 and under. Because of their high metabolic rates and high tissue oxygen demands, children are biologically at increased risk of CO poisoning when exposed to CO.

    PERSONS HOSPITALIZED WITH CARBON MONOXIDE (CO) POISONING ARE AMONG THE MOST SEVERELY POISONED CASES. ALTHOUGH UNINTENTIONAL CO POISONING CAN ALMOST ALWAYS BE PREVENTED,

    CO IS THE MOST COMMON CAUSE OF POISONING DEATHS IN THE UNITED STATES

    and every year more than 20 New Mexicans die as a result of accidental or unintentional exposure to this toxic gas. Patients who survive are likely to develop long-term neurological problems.

    The co poisoning hospitalizations data can be used to assess the burden of severe co poisoning, monitor trends over time, and to inform co EXPOSURE PREVENTION, education, and evaluation efforts to prevent poisoning.

    WITH AN AVERAGE OF 430 CARBON MONOXIDE POISONING DEATHS PER YEAR OCCURRING IN THE UNITED STATES, in a normal WEATHER year.

    Carbon monoxide incidents over the last 21 months have been rising faster than our charity has ever seen before. Carbon monoxide incidents I believe will go up even faster due to more and more people families being forced to live in poverty. Food banks are popping up everywhere and the last thing on any ones mind will be to make sure ALL their fuel burning appliances are serviced and their chimney if they have ones is swept. I am keen to prevent this from happening to anyone else living/working in the UK but I and the charity need much more support to do this.

    For info:

    Carbon Monoxide Awareness is an independent registered charity run “entirely” by unpaid volunteers founded by myself along with the charity’s Carbon Monoxide Awareness Week. The “Charity’s 9th Carbon Monoxide Awareness Week” runs from Monday 17th November to Sunday 23rd November 2014. The aim of the week is to warn those living/working in the UK that:

    • Carbon Monoxide is produced by the “incomplete combustion” of ANY hydrocarbon fuel coal, charcoal, wood, biomass, oil, petrol, diesel, natural gas and LPG and not just natural gas as so many people believe.
    • You can be poisoned by carbon monoxide while in your own home, from an adjoining property, in a car, campervan, caravan, tent, holiday accommodation or on a boat.
    • The need to get all their fuel burning appliances serviced and their chimney swept every year.
    • Letting tenants know what their landlords should do to protect them.
    • Please see: http://covictim.org/articles/details/pledge-your-support-to-charity-s-9th-national-carbon-monoxide-awareness-week-

    The charity and I urgently need your support to help prevent what happened to my family from happening to someone else who lives/works here in the UK before they become the next victim of this silent killer.

    If your company is looking for a new charity of the year for 2014/15 please think of us.

    (complete text below)

    ————————————————————–

    THE CLIMATE CHANGE PHENOMENA?

    Ten facts about climate change

    1.     Climate has always changed, and it always will. The assumption that prior to the industrial revolution the Earth had a “stable” climate is simply wrong. The only sensible thing to do about climate change is to prepare for it.

    2.    Accurate temperature measurements made from weather balloons and satellites since the late 1950s show no atmospheric warming since 1958.  In contrast, averaged ground-based thermometers record a warming of about 0.40 C over the same time period. Many scientists believe that the thermometer record is biased by the Urban Heat Island effect and other artefacts.

    3.    Despite the expenditure of more than US$50 billion dollars looking for it since 1990, no unambiguous anthropogenic (human) signal has been identified in the global temperature pattern.

    4.    Without the greenhouse effect, the average surface temperature on Earth would be -180 C rather than the equable +150 C that has nurtured the development of life.

         Carbon dioxide is a minor greenhouse gas, responsible for ~26% (80 C) of the total greenhouse effect (330C), of which in turn at most 25% (~20C) can be attributed to carbon dioxide contributed by human activity. Water vapour, contributing at least 70% of the effect, is by far the most important atmospheric greenhouse gas.

    5.    On both annual (1 year) and geological (up to 100,000 year) time scales, changes in atmospheric temperature PRECEDE changes in CO2. Carbon dioxide therefore cannot be the primary forcing agent for temperature increase (though increasing CO2 does cause a diminishingly mild positive temperature feedback).

    6.    The UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has acted as the main scaremonger for the global warming lobby that led to the Kyoto Protocol. Fatally, the IPCC is a political, not scientific, body.

    Hendrik Tennekes, a retired Director of Research at the Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute, says that “the IPCC review process is fatally flawed” and that “the IPCC wilfully ignores the paradigm shift created by the foremost meteorologist of the twentieth century, Edward Lorenz“.
    7.    The Kyoto Protocol will cost many trillions of dollars and exercises a significant impost those countries that signed it, but will deliver no significant cooling (less than .020 C by 2050, assuming that all commitments are met).

    The Russian Academy of Sciences says that Kyoto has no scientific basis; Andre Illarianov, senior advisor to Russian president Putin, calls Kyoto-ism “one of the most agressive, intrusive, destructive ideologies since the collapse of communism and fascism“. If Kyoto was a “first step” then it was in the same wrong direction as the later “Bali roadmap”.

    8.    Climate change is a non-linear (chaotic) process, some parts of which are only dimly or not at all understood. No deterministic computer model will ever be able to make an accurate prediction of climate 100 years into the future.
    9.    Not surprisingly, therefore, experts in computer modelling agree also that no current (or likely near-future) climate model is able to make accurate predictions of regional climate change.
    10.   The biggest untruth about human global warming is the assertion that nearly all scientists agree that it is occurring, and at a dangerous rate.

    The reality is that almost every aspect of climate science is the subject of vigorous debate. Further, thousands of qualified scientists worldwide have signed declarations which (i) query the evidence for hypothetical human-caused warming and (ii) support a rational scientific (not emotional) approach to its study within the context of known natural climate change.

    GLOBAL WARMING  PHENOMENA?

    LAYING TEN GLOBAL WARMING MYTHS

    Myth 1     Average global temperature (AGT) has increased over the last few years.

    Fact 1       Within error bounds, AGT has not increased since 1995 and has declined since 2002, despite an increase in atmospheric CO2 of 8% since 1995. 

    Myth 2     During the late 20th Century, AGT increased at a dangerously fast rate and reached an unprecedented magnitude.

    Facts 2      The late 20th Century AGT rise was at a rate of 1-20 C/century, which lies well within natural rates of climate change for the last 10,000 yr. AGT has been several degrees warmer than today many times in the recent geological past. 

    Myth 3     AGT was relatively unchanging in pre-industrial times, has sky-rocketed since 1900, and will increase by several degrees more over the next 100 years (the Mann, Bradley & Hughes “hockey stick” curve and its computer extrapolation).

    Facts 3      The Mann et al. curve has been exposed as a statistical contrivance. There is no convincing evidence that past climate was unchanging, nor that 20th century changes in AGT were unusual, nor that dangerous human warming is underway.

    Myth 4     Computer models predict that AGT will increase by up to 60 C over the next 100 years.

    Facts 4      Deterministic computer models do. Other equally valid (empirical) computer models predict cooling. 

    Myth 5     Warming of more than 20 C will have catastrophic effects on ecosystems and mankind alike.

    Facts 5      A 20 C change would be well within previous natural bounds. Ecosystems have been adapting to such changes since time immemorial. The result is the process that we call evolution. Mankind can and does adapt to all climate extremes.

    Myth 6     Further human addition of CO2 to the atmosphere will cause dangerous warming, and is generally harmful.

    Facts 6      No human-caused warming can yet be detected that is distinct from natural system variation and noise. Any additional human-caused warming which occurs will probably amount to less than 10 C. Atmospheric CO2 is a beneficial fertilizer for plants, including especially cereal crops, and also aids efficient evapo-transpiration. 

    Myth 7     Changes in solar activity cannot explain recent changes in AGT.

    Facts 7      The sun’s output varies in several ways on many time scales (including the 11-, 22 and 80-year solar cycles), with concomitant effects on Earth’s climate. While changes in visible radiation are small, changes in particle flux and magnetic field are known to exercise a strong climatic effect. More than 50% of the 0.80 C rise in AGT observed during the 20th century can be attributed to solar change. 

    Myth 8     Unprecedented melting of ice is taking place in both the north and south polar regions.

    Facts 8      Both the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets are growing in thickness and cooling at their summit. Sea ice around Antarctica attained a record area in 2007. Temperatures in the Arctic region are just now achieving the levels of natural warmth experienced during the early 1940s, and the region was warmer still (sea-ice free) during earlier times.

    Myth 9     Human-caused global warming is causing dangerous global sea-level (SL) rise.

    Facts 9      SL change differs from time to time and place to place; between 1955 and 1996, for example, SL at Tuvalu fell by 105 mm (2.5 mm/yr). Global average SL is a statistical measure of no value for environmental planning purposes. A global average SL rise of 1-2 mm/yr occurred naturally over the last 150 years, and shows no sign of human-influenced increase. 

    Myth 10   The late 20th Century increase in AGT caused an increase in the number of severe storms (cyclones), or in storm intensity.

    Facts 10    Meteorological experts are agreed that no increase in storms has occurred beyond that associated with natural variation of the climate system.

    Embarrassing Predictions Haunt the Global-Warming Industry

    It is often said that non-scientists must rely on “expert opinion” to determine whether claims on alleged “catastrophic man-made global warming” are true. Putting aside the fact that there is no global-warming “consensus” among experts, one does not have to be a scientist, or even proficient in science, to be able to review past predictions, and then form an informed opinion regarding the accuracy of those predictions.

    Suppose, for example, you regularly watch a local TV weatherman forecast the weather for your area. Would you need a degree in meteorology in order to decide for yourself how reliable, or unreliable, the weatherman’s forecasts are?

    Warnings have been issued for many decades now regarding catastrophic climate change that forecasted certain trends or occurrences that we should already have witnessed. Yet such predictions have turned out to be very, very wrong. This was certainly the case with the alarmist predictions of the 1960s and ’70s that man’s activities on Earth were causing a catastrophic cooling trend that would bring on another ice age. And it is also the case with the more recent claims about catastrophic global warming.
