Models Schmodels: The Climate Scaremongers Take Another Hit February 25, 2014 8:00 AM | Tagged as Flat Earthers, Kerry
WSJ February 20, 2014 Page A15: “Why Kerry is Flat Wrong on Climate Change” by McNider and Christy
This article should convince all but the most ardent ideologues that the scaremongering of the radical environmental lobby is phony. Most political experts know that the left’s recent re-pandering to the enviros is aimed to build their base for 2014 and 2016. This not only is to build constituency and votes, but also to tap the bulging bank accounts of the Big Enviro lobby.
McNider and Christy agree that there has been a modest increase in global temperatures since 1979, but vehemently disagree that the forecast models for the future are accurate. Climate models are pesky little creatures. You see, after a period of time, actual data can be used to validate or invalidate their accuracy. The data are in! THE CLIMATE MODELS ARE PHONY!
Just look at the graph in their article. These models have been “consistently and spectacularly wrong”, to quote the article.
McNider and Christy clearly state the 102 climate models are almost entirely the work of biased people. Predicting the future of global temperatures is a complex, multiple variable problem. Very difficult in itself. It is made more difficult when the modelers themselves are biased toward a Big Enviro position.
McNider and Christy are well credentialed academics in the core field relating to climate change. They are both professors of atmospheric science at the University of Alabama in Huntsville and fellows of the American Meteorological Society. No slow leaks, they.
The Biz Bucks Guy remains a skeptic, in spite of Secretary of State John Kerry’s vitriolic metaphor that any disagreement with his global warming plank of his new presidential run comes from “Flat Earthers”.
