Scientific Method vs. Abuse of Power—

Left wing Ideology, Climate activists exposed as Junk Science
Top climate scientist breaks ranks with ‘consensus’
‘Our models are Mickey-Mouse mockeries of the real world’
A group of 500 scientists and professionals in climate science wrote a letter to the United Nations contending there is no climate crisis and that spending trillions on the issue is “cruel and imprudent.”
To perpetuate their giant, politically driven hoax, junk scientists have totally abandoned empiricism, AKA “the Scientific Method”. Instead they rely totally on opinion and wishful thinking. ~C.D.
Scientific Method: a method of research in which a problem is identified, relevant data are gathered, a hypothesis is formulated from these data, and the hypothesis is empirically tested.
Empiricism: The practice of relying on observation and experiment, esp. in the natural sciences.
See the PragerU video:
An MIT-trained scientist who has specialized for nearly 25 years in abnormal weather and climate change has published a book explaining why he believes the data underpinning global-warming science are unreliable.
Mototaka Nakamura, who earned a doctorate of science from MIT, has conducted his work at prestigious institutions such as MIT, Georgia Institute of Technology, NASA, Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology and Duke University, reports the website Electroverse.
In his book “The Global Warming Hypothesis is an Unproven Hypothesis,” Nakamura explains why global mean temperatures before 1980 are based on “untrustworthy data.”
“Before full planet surface observation by satellite began in 1980, only a small part of the Earth had been observed for temperatures with only a certain amount of accuracy and frequency,” he says. “Across the globe, only North America and Western Europe have trustworthy temperature data dating back to the 19th century.”
Last week, a group of 500 scientists and professionals in climate science wrote a letter to the United Nations contending there is no climate crisis and that spending trillions on the issue is “cruel and imprudent.”
They got right to the point in their letter, leading with, “There is no climate emergency.”
They attached their European Climate Declaration, which, according to the letter, argues that “general-circulation models of climate on which international policy is at present founded are unfit for their purpose.”
“Therefore, it is cruel as well as imprudent to advocate the squandering of trillions on the basis of results from such immature models,” the scientists wrote. “Current climate policies pointlessly, grievously undermine the economic system, putting lives at risk in countries denied access to affordable, continuous electrical power.”
They urge the U.N. to “follow a climate policy based on sound science, realistic economics and genuine concern for those harmed by costly but unnecessary attempts at mitigation.”
Testing ‘regarded as heresy’
Electroverse noted that today’s “global warming science” is built on the work of a few climate modelers who claim to have demonstrated that human-derived CO2 emissions are the cause of recently rising temperatures “and have then simply projected that warming forward.”
“Every climate researcher thereafter has taken the results of these original models as a given, and we’re even at the stage now where merely testing their validity is regarded as heresy.”
Richard Lindzen, an emeritus professor of atmospheric sciences at MIT who has published more than 200 scientific papers, says in a video produced by PragerU “it seems that the less the climate changes, the louder the voices of the climate alarmists get.”
He pointed out that the United Nations International Panel on Climate Change, the IPCC, admitted in its 2007 paper that the “long-term prediction of future climate states is not possible.”
The truth is, the professor said, that climate-change scientists and “skeptics” in the scientific community agree that the climate is always changing and that over the past two centuries, the global mean temperature has increased slightly and erratically by about 1.8 degrees Fahrenheit.
So, why are so many people panic-stricken, including some who are warning the world has only 12 years left to save itself?
Richard Lindzen, Climate Scientist, points to Abuse of Power
He points to politicians, activists and media.
“Global warming provides them, more than any other issue, with the things they most want,” he said.
For politicians, it’s power and money. For activists, it’s money for their organizations and “confirmation of their near-religious devotion to the idea that man is a destructive force acting upon nature.”
For the media, Lindzen says, it’s ideology, money and headlines.
“Doomsday scenarios sell.”
