There seems to be a buzz in the alarmosphere about the gulf stream stopping because emissions. I must admit I don’t have much time to spare at the moment for dealing with the ramped up rhetoric about ‘man made climate change’, but I spotted a typical tweet from Professor Ray Wills which I thought was worth a quick reply.
This is of course, nonsense.
I did a quick overlay plot of the subpolar gyre by adding the 10be proxy. Guess what:
The last few 10Be datapoints are missing off this, but we can refer to a plot I was sent recently by Rick Salvador, which shows 10Be vs the latest iteration of our solar activity model.
10Be is inverted in this plot as a solar proxy, but you can see the trend is in the same direction all the way to 2000, along with our prediction to 2100 for solar activity. Incidentally, Rick had a ‘Eureka moment’ and added a non-linear scaling to our model to mimic 10Be production’s relationship to solar activity, which has much improved the correlation we get for the last 4000yrs between Steinhilber et al’s 10Be based TSI proxy and our simple harmonic resonance model of solar system dynamics:
Apologies to Steinhilber for the mis-spelling of his name on this plot.
So I think we can safely conclude that most of the variation in the ocean circulation is more to do with the variation of the enormous nuclear reactor in the sky than it has to do with Al Gore, Mann and their alarmist friends jetting about the planet emitting co2 and hot air.
Contributor Jaime Jessop took Mann to task on facebook about this. Her comments, and Mann’s reply were deleted.
If Jaime can supply a more legible screenshot, I’ll post it here.
Censorship in science is something which will be discussed in a forthcoming book I’ve been working on with Nils Axel Moerner.
