Perspective Needed in Climate Debate

Unfortunately the IPCC shows little interest in perspective, preferring to trumpet absurd 8.5°C warming scenarios.

I went to school with a lot of great forecasters. One of them was Scott Chesner, who is an on-air meteorologist in Tyler, Texas. Scott tweeted something this week that I thought was quite profound regarding the current generation’s “consensus” on climate:

“One problem with global warming hysteria is ‘perspective.’ The warmer global temps of recent yrs. are relatively meaningless as we only have detailed records for~200 yrs. out of the Earth’s age of 4.5 billion yrs. That=30 sec. out of a person’s 80 yr. life!”

As you know, I am a big satellite-era proponent as far as temperatures are concerned. We have simply seen too much adjustment to older temperature records, and that has to at least raise questions. In almost every single case, temperatures are adjusted down in years before the satellite era.

This has some merit, given most errors on thermometers…

    Good piece well conveyed by Joe. I do have some misgivings about old thermometers tending to read high but I’m OK with adjustments when they are fully and scientifically justified. What I’m totally NOT OK with is the destruction of the original data with I believe has happened.

    Stephen, I agree with you about the wanton destruction of the original data bur the UN Church of Climatology requires it because they think it will save them from being convicted of fraud when the scam unravels.

    Teapot Dome was like a crooked lemonade stand compared to this AGW/IPCC scam.
