Tony Heller has a question to ask about climate scientists, here.

    And 97% of All lemmings agree: A higher cliff is better to jump off of. Viva Lemminghood!

    Warming, if you can spot it, looks very tame on Dr Roy Spencer’s satellite data graph.

    Especially weak in the 21st Century years. Where’s the supposed correlation to CO2 levels?

    This is the worst post I have seen on this blog. It denigrates a politician for no reason. It is a silly question, It is intended to create heat and not light on the matter.

    “This is the worst post I have seen on this blog. It denigrates a politician for no reason. It is a silly question, It is intended to create heat and not light on the matter.”

    Can you answer the question?

    ‘It is intended to create heat and not light on the matter.’ No! Do the 97% have any concept of science except ‘political science?

    Hello Wyoskeptic.

    Lemmings don’t jump off cliffs. It was all faked.

    I too was subject to this bit of film idiocy when I was a kid.

    Magnetic activity of the sun was high and the polar vortex was strong.

    Therefore, the temperature in the stratosphere over the polar circle very low.

    The low temperature also in the lower latitudes.

    Antarctic ozone today: Ozone depletion is now extensive and the ozone hole covers Antarctica. The ozone hole grew rapidly from mid August onwards and is near its largest at some 25 million square kilometres. This is a larger hole than the average of those over the last decade.

    @ Ray Tomes

    I can understand some people not liking the in-your-face style of Tony Heller, but the point he makes about excessive claims for the supposed ‘climate-changing’ power of tiny amounts of carbon dioxide is still important to make IMO.

    Hmm… I’m going to cheat and ask my own questions. Is CO2 in the atmosphere subject to vibrational energy change due to the kinetic battering from other high temperature molecules in the atmosphere? If the answer is YES, then how does CO2 absorb any radiation from the surface when most CO2 molecules are far warmer than the -30C which is peak temperature for just the 13 micron band? Never mind the all the other bands down to 18 microns.
    Sure CO2 has good reason to radiate over the 13 to 18 micron bands but is that back radiation? Remember, the kinetic energy level of the N2, O2 and Ar molecules was derived from much higher temperature levels than can be replicated by photons over the the 13 to 18 micron bands of which only about half will reach the surface.

    The idea that the Earth is ‘hotter than ever’ or similar does not square with the facts e.g:

    ‘Two expeditions to Antarctica by scientists from the UK, USA and Australia analysed an area of ice spanning 500,000 metres squared, using a robot known as SeaBed.

    The survey discovered ice thickness average between 1.4m and 5.5m, with a maximum ice thickness of 16m.’

    We’re in an interglacial between regular long-lasting ice ages.
