Guess what; the argument for man being the primary mover behind climate change is being debunked by studies provided by the believers in man being the primary mover behind climate change. That is right, climate alarmists are realizing their computer models fail to predict the present pause. The have begun to look for excuses. Their new conclusion is that nature may play a role.
The blogs Watts up With That and Hockey Schtick came up with, at least, 52 studies conducted by climate alarmists (a list that keeps growing by the day). Many of the studies conclude that interaction with natural events mitigated human activities upon climate. What these studies have done is to reinforce what climate realists have stated all along; that there are natural events affecting climate change.
The significance is two-fold. First, many alarmists had to admit their computer models have serious problems in predicating the future. Second, alarmists have to admit that natural events are a significant factor in climate change. If they are intellectually honest, at least. The debate now shifts as to what extent man’s interaction with natural events affects climate change. This is the position that climate realists expressed all along.
Meanwhile, the climate alarmists are going overtime to push their agenda. What we are finding is their agenda is not about saving Earth. It is just another excuse to end capitalism as our economic model. The recent march in New York saw more signs about social justice and the evil of capitalism than about climate change. For those of us who have followed this debate for the past couple of decades, this is no surprise. As their science implodes, the more desperate they become.
One of their favorite tactics is simply to lie about their opponents. One way is the use of the word climate denier with the implication of comparing climate realists with Holocaust deniers. The problem with this argument is that climate realists don’t deny climate change is occurring but dispute there is scientific proof that human activities are the prime mover behind climate change. The alarmists are far more deniers about climate and energy development. There are some 1900 studies with some 700 scientists at some 400 institutions showing that the present climate change has occurred in the past 1000 years. But climate alarmists deny this! Climate alarmists view the planet being run by a thermostat. All we have to do is adjust our energy policy and viola, we have the perfect climate. (Of course, no one really knows what the ideal climate is or even the correct amount of CO2 levels but that is another debate for another time).
It is the climate alarmists who act like mini-Fascists. In the recent march, Robert Kennedy called for the imprisonment of the Koch brothers. This is not the first time this has occurred among alarmists. Kennedy is but the latest who claim that realists are criminals or committing treason against nature. Among those who have called for a Nuremburg trial for climate realists includes former NASA scientist James Hansen. Again that Nazis-Realist connection. But it is the alarmists who uses cherry picked data to rewrite climate history. This is the equal of writing about Hitler and not mentioning the holocaust. It is alarmists who demand their opponents be jailed or exiled from the public square.
New scientific ideas occur all the time. Old scientific ideas are forever being challenge and sometimes reversed. What we know or believe is different than what we believed a generation back since new evidence comes forth. Recent science is challenging the alarmist world view. Instead of engaging in debate, the alarmist seek to silence debate by equating their opponents to mini-Nazis. The reality is that they are the ones behaving like mini-Nazis.
