Posted on 10/25/2018 10:42:34 AM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer
The latest report from the worlds climate scientists has made clear the size of the challenge if the world is to stay below the global warming limit hoped for in the Paris climate agreement. Unfortunately, with current trends we are likely to cross this threshold within the next two decades because we are already two-thirds of the way there.
But how do we know what is driving these climate trends? It comes down to the same kind of detective work that typifies a crime scene investigation, only here we are dealing with a case that encompasses the whole world. Let me give you my view, which does not necessarily represent the position of NASA or the federal government.
Like forensic detectives, climate scientists have developed a new array of tools in recent decades designed to skillfully calculate what the fingerprints of these changes look like, and more important, how they differ from one another.
When this is all put together, the conclusions are inescapable: Without human activities the planet would not have warmed over the past century. When scientists include all of the effects that humans have had on the climate system, they can match them with these many independent and varied observations. Our best assessment is therefore that humans, at least the ones responsible for the bulk of carbon dioxide emissions, have been responsible for all of the recent trends in global temperatures.
The forensics have spoken, and we are to blame.

Gavin Schmidt is a climate scientist and director of the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies in New York.
Joseph Goebbels was a German Nazi politician and Reich Minister of Propaganda of Nazi Germany from 1933 to 1945.
OK!! Everybody pay attention!
Lesson for today:
1. The sun is 1,300,000 times as big as the earth.
2. The sun is a giant nuclear furnace that controls the climates of all its planets.
3. The earth is one of the suns planets.
4. The earth is a speck in comparison to the size of the sun.
5. Inhabitants of the earth are less than specks.
Study Question: How do less-than-specks in congress plan to control the sun?

“It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends upon his not understanding it!”
“But how do we know what is driving these climate trends?”
Fake computer models that assume the result.
We’ve entered a Cooling phase. So everything they’ve said about the Warming was false. Doesn’t matter. They will just say all the same things about the Cooling.
The answer lies in Climate Forensics?
Of course, why didn’t we go down this path before?
Ah! The Cooling! The Coming Ice Age!
That was the “climate crisis” of the early 1970’s.
Ooh! Sounds all scientificky; like CSI and Star Treck Next Gen. Those were all true, right?
Hey, the fix is cheap. Just kill off 6.5 billion people and tax the survivors a few trillion per year.
Temps are below normal for my area. Quite a few nights of below-freezing temps.
Because who needs hard science when you can have this dipshits opinion?
When we cool, they have two choices, but they typically take the first;
We would have cooled more without man-made warming
Global warming is making system changes more drastic, including more inclement weather and storms, and bounce-back cooling.
Spin is easy. The koolaid drinkers buy it no matter what.
Good spin is difficult. You would make disbelievers doubt
NYT preaches to the choir. Like a cult leader, they just need to repeat the fanatic affirmations so that the sycophants don’t lose focus. They don’t care about good spin, let alone truth. They just need to keep up the believers
Schmidt is a walking, talking crime scene.
His Federal funding needs to be cut off.

Not buying it, NYT.
You jokesters writing about science is about as believable as Al Gore discussing calculus.
IPCC 1st-4th reports: models show AGW will cause 2-4 degree temp increase. 2 degree warming is BAAAAAAD
Politicians: Give us money to stay under 2 degree warming
IPCC 5th report: models now show AGW will cause 1.6-4 degree temp increase (we don’t want to say they’ve gotten worse, but they’ve gotten less reliable). Oh, and 2 degree warming is still BAAAAAD
Observational scientists: Observation shows temp increase will be 1.2-1.8 degrees. 2 degree won’t happen, we’re ok.
Politicians (Paris): Give lots of money to stay under 1.5 degree warming
Politicians-to-IPCC: Nobody believes our 1.5 degree BS after 25 years of 2.0 degree BS and not science to justify the decrease to 1.5 degrees (but we have say 1.5 because science says we may not hit 2.0)
IPCC special report “by invitation” (2 weeks ago): 1.5 degree warming is BAAAAAAD
note: no scientists were injured in the change from “2.0 is BAAAAAD” to “1.5 is BAAAAAD”. It was all done with IPCC bureaucratic magic and did not involve “science”.
But wait...wait...didn’t they say we would already be inundated by rising oceans at this point, but moved it back many, many times? (maybe it was Obama who saved us)
And of course, that was only after telling us a decade or two earlier we were all going to die from a second ice age.
