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
The lack of warming has caused much of the global warming community to cross the line into blatant fraud. Cold is not caused by heat or lack of ice. Fewer hurricanes and tornadoes does not mean more hurricanes and tornadoes. Filling in pink temperatures will not make the Earth warmer. Lying about the Arctic will not make the ice disappear.
Albert Einstein once said, “No amount of experimentation can ever prove me right; a single experiment can prove me wrong.”

A complete rejection of the hypothesis, in its current form, would certainly be warranted if the ocean continues to cool (or fails to warm) for the next few years.
The first is the complete failure of all climate scientists – and their cheerleaders in the media – to investigate the relationship between the atmospheric concentration of carbon dioxide at Mauna Loa (the mountain in Hawaii which is the official source of the IPCC’s data on atmospheric CO2) and temperatures at Mauna Loa.Louis Hissink followed up (here) with:
The exceptionally inconvenient truth is that there is no correlation between atmospheric carbon dioxide and temperatures when both are measured at Mauna Loa. It only requires ability to use Google to verify my assertion. Neither James Hansen of NASA-GISS and NOAA nor Phil Jones of HadleyCRUT at Exeter and Norwich chooses to log temperature at Mauna Loa itself. Instead they prefer to represent Hawaii’s temperatures by those at Honolulu Airport, where the arrival of Boeing 707s in 1960 and 747s by 1970 had a very direct impact on temperatures there. But of temperatures at Mauna Loa, selected by the late and estimable Charles Keeling for its pristine lack of purely local influences, there is no mention by the aforesaid Hansen and Jones.
Tim Curtin has pointed out that the temperature record at Mauna Loa does not support the core climate change assumption that an increase in atmospheric CO2 will cause a rise in global temperature.Louis downloaded and plotted up the data and concludes:
Extending the period to 1981 still shows no trend so clearly the AGW hypothesis has to be falsified.
According to the NOAA State of the Climate 2008 report, climate computer model simulations show that if observations find that the globe has not warmed for periods of 15 years or more, the climate models predicting man-made warming from CO2 will be falsified at a confidence level of 95%:
“Near-zero and even negative trends are common for intervals of a decade or less in the simulations, due to the model’s internal climate variability. The simulations rule out (at the 95% level) zero trends for intervals of 15 yr or more, suggesting that an observed absence of warming of this duration is needed to create a discrepancy with the expected present-day warming rate.”According to Phil Jones, there has been no statistically significant warming since 1995 [16 years, 3 months ago]. Ergo, the climate models have already been falsified at the 95% confidence level and it's time to revert to the null hypothesis that man made CO2 is not causing global warming.
Just one Job? Too late, it has already cost Kevin Rudd his PM's job, it has cost Malcolm Turnbull the opposition leader's job. That's two. It is threatening Julia Gillard's job. Probably threatening Paul Howes' job as well, as Union members wake up to the fact that it is a tax based on a flawed hypothesis.One of Australia's largest steelmakers says jobs will be lost if the industry is not fully compensated for a carbon tax.
Yesterday, Australian Workers Union national secretary Paul Howes said the steel industry was facing unique challenges and should be exempt from the carbon tax or fully compensated for it.
Mr Howes warned the Government would lose his union's support if there was just one job lost as a result of the tax.
THE Gillard Government is considering further compensation for high-polluting export industries hit by its carbon tax, including steel manufacturers.
Labor faces demands for a series of handouts for industries after a number of large unions warned the carbon tax could cost jobs.
A two-page document entitled The Green Agenda is being circulated by Catholic agencies and through schools. It states the party's human rights and social policy areas are in direct conflict ''with the beliefs and values of virtually all religious people, and the beliefs of many other people as well''.One item that the Greens letter outlines is " the Greens' treatment of personal drug use as a health and social issue ''and therefore acceptable''
''Greens who are elected will bring a whole set of policies. You cannot pick and choose. They are not only concerned for the environment,'' it reads.
Can anyone on the committee please explain why, if Australia cuts its man-made emissions by 5% it will mean that the world-wide emissions will be reduced by $0.000000etc... Google it!I cannot watch Terrible Tony smarming away on QandA. My TV set would not last the night. However, one of our members has pointed out that a couple of good questions were made on QandA 12/4/11.
Atmospheric CO2 is less that 0.04% and the man-made emissions are around 3.4% of that. Australia's proportion is about 1% of total man-made emission and Julia and Bob want to kill Australia's international trading position for ( you can work it out on your calculator)
CO2=0.04x3.4%x1%x5%. Is that going to make a difference?
I recommend you review the program from the 51 minute mark.Tony: Our next question tonight comes from Carly Abrams(?)
Jones, Wong and Hunt were all disgraceful in dismissing the science even though Carly Abrams quoted from the latest IPCC Report.
Nobody addressed her second question which was: “Why aren’t Australians getting a vote on this really important question?”
I'll let the reader judge whether Mr Flannery is a good communicator and whether you believe your $5.6 million is being spent wisely.
“Tim Flannery's a good communicator - I wish him well leading this commission which has got a really important job, which is informing the people of Australia.”
The commission, which met for the first time today(10/2/11) for initial discussions on how it will measure its progress, will cost $5.6 million over four years.

Not since Communism’s heyday has a dubious concept so haunted and crippled the intelligentsia. Fears of so-called “global warming” (or whatever cognate term it’s traveling under these days) have now spanned the globe. Worse, they’re determining how policy makers in Africa and the Third World (or whatever the U.N. likes to call those underdeveloped countries) respond to energy development:
To suggest that impoverished nations must worry more about CO2 than about tuberculosis, cholera or malaria is absurd. To tell them their energy options must be limited to expensive, unreliable, insufficient wind and solar power is immoral. To impose anti-hydrocarbon restrictions on poor countries ensures that they will remain poor and diseased, with life expectancies in the low forties.
Doctors must take a leading role in highlighting the dangers of climate change, which will lead to conflict, disease and ill-health, and threatens global security, according to a stark warning from an unusual alliance of physicians and military leaders.
