All Scientists are Sceptics ~Professor Bob Carter

Whenever someone asserts that a scientific question is “settled,” they tell me immediately that they don’t understand the first thing about science. Science is never settled. Dr David Deming

Perhaps the most frustrating aspect of the science of climate change is the lack of any real substance in attempts to justify the hypothesis ~Professor Stewart Franks

Gore's Bull-tish broadsided by Climate Depot's Marc Morano

Al Gore has been gored so many times recently, it's a wonder there are any believers in Man-made Global Warming Alarmism. It's a wonder that anyone could want to be a Gore's Climate Connectors.

Aspen has an Amazing Winter Season 2010-11
What about it, Cate Blanchett? What to review your thinking? Read Climate Depot's Marc Morano's destruction of Al Gore's speech to the Aspen Institute in Colarado. (Aspen had an Amazing Snow Season!)

Defeated Gore unleashes: 'It's no longer acceptable in mixed company, meaning bipartisan company, to use the goddamn word 'climate'...we cannot possibly come to an agreement on it' - August 5, 2011 

Marc says that "the movement Gore helped found, is dying scientifically, politically and economically."

Gore Claim: 'It may be volcanoes.' Bullshit!'
Reality Check: Gore has not been keeping up on the latest dat and peer-reviewed studies. Yes, volcanoes can and do have a big impact on global warming.

Gore Claim: 'It's not getting warmer.' Bullshit!'
Reality Check: Gore may want to scream 'Bullshit' as his pal, UN IPCC Chair Pachauri who has acknowledged global warming has stopped.

Marc addresses point after point giving links to quotes and papers. 

Cate Blanchett and all other Climate Connectors as well as your Union Sponsor/Partners.
Go to The Climate Depot site and see how the foul-mouthed Gore stacks up against "the Science."

  1. The thing you need to focus on is the fact that the Earth's surface is only an intermediate interface with the atmosphere which, in the first millimetre or so, is at pretty much the same temperature as the ground. So blackbody radiation theory is irrelevant and it is not radiation that emits most of the heat, but simple diffusion (conduction due to collision of molecules of air with the surface molecules.) This warms (mostly) nitrogen and oxygen molecules which then rise by convection and, as they cool, emit photons which cannot be captured by carbon dioxide molecules. This is where the IPCC models went so wrong - it is explained in detail at my site Note also that the Second Law of Thermodynamics does not apply in an open system with differing pressure, so even if heat were trapped in the upper troposphere it can only return to the surface (or oceans) by radiation, never by convection downwards - warm air rises. All warming by the sun each day is only temporary heat - witness Singapore with its minimum 25 or 26 deg.C and maximum 31 0r 32 deg.C every day of the year. It is the ground (and ocean) temperature which maintains a "base" temperature each night, while solar insolation flows into and out of the surface every day with any small build up in summer being cleared by winter.

  3. The thermal energy "stored" in C02 is also "lost" as chemical energy as the the conversion of CO2 to fixed carbon (via photosynthesis) requires that the energy state of C02 exceeds a certain level. Even the conversion of C02 to carbonic acid in soil moisture creates entropy... then the kinetic energy of evapotranspiration... then.... etc etc...

    Talk of “unmitigated climate change” and “glimmer of hope” just adds to the increasingly obvious fact that the whole issue of climate change is shaping up as a worldwide debate between Climatologists (such as Trenberth) who are no doubt good at forecasting local weather, and Physicists (such as Prof. Nahle, Knox and Douglass and Cotton) who are now coming in on the act and pointing out in no uncertain terms (a) that there has been no climate change since 2003 and (b) that the physics of quantum mechanics does not support the “theory” that CO2 can have any significant effect, other than perhaps a slight extension (by a few minutes) of the warming of the day into the early evening. All heat from the day dissipates to space usually by the early hours before the next dawn, and, on a seasonal basis, by the next winter.

    Read about Prof Nahle’s experiment pointing out that heat transfer from the surface to the atmosphere is mostly by conduction then convection, and that it is warm air rising by convection that got trapped in the original laboratory experiments in the 19th century – not air that was heated by trapped radiation.

    Then read how Knox and Douglass rubished Trenberth’s figures and his “missing energy” which would be even worse if he had used correct data. They showed that ocean heat has not increased at all since 2003.

    There is a good review of the debate at

    Now, ocean heat is 90% of all heat, so NASA “sea surface” data is the best indication of trends. So, see for yourself how 2011 is shaping up as being cooler than 2003: (Select “sea surface” in the listbox and tick 2003 and 2011 in the checkboxes.)

    I suggest that NASA data confirms what Knox and Douglass are saying. There has been no net positive radiation since 2003 and consequently no accumulation of heat in the oceans.

    Yet CO2 levels have been the highest in modern history.

    At the very least, why is the world worrying so much now, when the rises last century have passed by and probably just had something to do with a build up to what was the biggest El Nino on record in 1999.. Such El Ninos can, at least to some extent, act as a safety valve releasing excess heat straight through the atmosphere and out to space. Certainly that seems to have been the effect once it all settled down by 2003.
