Climate prat of 2016 – We have a winnah!

Posted: December 25, 2016 by oldbrew in alarmism, climate

And the winner is…a loser. Such is the world of climate obsessives.


I did wonder if it was worth running this years competition, because it seemed to me there would be little or nothing in the way of any excitement occurring, since there only appeared to be one horse in the race, and he was already galloping over the horizon before it had even began.

The rest would be plodding along miles behind him, morosely contemplating not so much a race track ahead of them but a road sloping down to end inexorably at the gates of the knacker’s yard, out of which they would be reemerging as either glue or inside tins of guaranteed organic dog food.

All through the year there’s been a real dearth of dedicated monomaniac climate prats. It was like a team fallen on hard times with the best of their talent permanently injured or retired out of the game altogether. Where were the great free-range climate prats of the golden age? The Hansons…

    Oh, well, I might as well be a prat. Just how is CO2 a greenhouse gas? The sun warms the ground, the ground warms the air by conduction, the warmed air rises and cools. Okay so far?
    Does heat transfer by conduction stop as altitude increases? NO! CO2 molecules in the air will be at local air temperature and radiating away over the 13 to 17 µm bands until air temperature falls below -30c and that will reduce the 13 µm radiation only. In the mean time half of all that radiation from the CO2 molecules reaches the surface and NON OF IT IS BACK RADIATION.
    If the surface is already radiating over those bands it CANNOT absorb the those photons from the CO2 above. At best it can delay surface cooling by ~9%. Now consider that radiation from 6kg of CO2 over 1 square metre of stoney ground, is the rate of cooling going to be affected?
    I suggest you go live in a desert for a while and experience the rate of night time cooling, however hot it got during the day. Under clear night skies the desert surface temperature can drop to nearly freezing. In fact the Romans made ice in the desert simply by digging a hole and placing a tray of water at the bottom.
    When will this farce end?

    nice article.

    Maybe focusing on personalities is a bit of a distraction, but here we have a whole government department in the frame for ‘climate prats of the year’:

    ‘The cost of the botched renewable heat incentive (RHI) scheme to the Northern Ireland taxpayer will be £490m, the Department for the Economy has said. The scheme was run by offering £1.40 in subsidies for every £1 spent on heating.’

    Needless to say the offer of free money brought some cheats into action. So-called renewables and government stupidity ‘generosity’ with public money often seem to go hand in hand.

    Rather disappointed that Wadhams didn’t even make the shortlist.

    If oil prices stay low enough that might do it.
