The final nail.
[I'm a couple days late in catching the significance of this, but wanted to note it here for my own records if nothing else.]
Up till now, all the 'discussion' on the Global Warming crime has been about time patterns of temperature. These patterns have shown the dissenters to be accurate and correct every time, and these patterns have shown the Gaian religious fanatics to be completely false every time. Still, this set of measurements was always a few steps removed from the basic problem.
Temperatures are the result
of a difference between incoming heat energy and outgoing heat energy. If you try to fill a bucket with no bottom, you'll never get it done because the water output always matches the input. Similarly, if you try to fry an egg with a candle in subzero conditions, you'll never get it done because the heat input from the flame is immediately stolen by the heat output to the frigid wind. You'll only succeed if you can shelter the egg from the subzero, keep some of the heat circulating under a lid or a Dutch Oven or a house. And similarly with heating an atmosphere. If you want it to get hotter, you need some kind of lid so the sun's heat escapes more slowly than it comes in.
The temperature patterns have always been enough for me, because I'm an experimentalist, a black-box thinker.
Twenty years ago I saw one graph showing that CO2 lags behind heat, and that's all I needed. If it lags, it can't be the cause. Period.
I don't care what the theory says, and I don't care how many layers or complications the whole setup has. In this case we have reliable
temperature records for more than a century from many constantly rural locations, and these records show no particular trend
over the last century. We also have less reliable records from urban locations that show rapid increases
. This pattern tells me that whatever is happening in the last century, it's NOT GLOBAL, therefore it can't be caused by any global effect like greenhousing. If these patterns have any meaning at all, it must be a REGIONAL meaning, so we should be looking at REGIONAL causes like urban heat islands and ocean current changes.
Longer-term records by various proxies agree almost perfectly with sunspot waves, which gives you a sufficient GLOBAL cause at the longer scale.
But the temperatures aren't enough for some of the dissenters, who are apparently more theory-minded. They need to see direct evidence that the bucket has a big hole in it, that the pan has no lid. Or more precisely, that the pan's lid isn't as solid as the CO2 theory needs it to be.
Nothing will be enough for the Gaians, because they're operating outside science, logic and sanity. The only thing that will change them is a big hole in their buckets of money, power and glory. When the money and prestige start leaking madly, they'll gradually go silent. Or more precisely, the genocidal laws and agencies will continue to roar ahead full speed, slaughtering the human race with remarkable efficiency. Laws and agencies are never repealed. But the former scientists who turned evil and lent respectability to the crime will attempt to salvage whatever picoparticle of conscience remains in their psychopathic crania.
Now Roy Spencer has come up with the evidence for the theoreticians.
Study co-author Dr. Roy Spencer ... U.S. Science Team Leader for the Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer flying on NASA’s Aqua satellite, reports that real-world data from NASA’s Terra satellite contradict multiple assumptions fed into alarmist computer models.
“The satellite observations suggest there is much more energy lost to space during and after warming than the climate models show,” Spencer said in a July 26 University of Alabama press release. “There is a huge discrepancy between the data and the forecasts that is especially big over the oceans.”
In addition to finding that far less heat is being trapped than alarmist computer models have predicted, the NASA satellite data show the atmosphere begins shedding heat into space long before United Nations computer models predicted.
Last nail for the 'lukewarmers'.
