John O’Sullivan writes a devastating piece about James Hansen.
While I won’t replicate it in its entirety, I highly recommend people read it. It touches on many topics, including the history of this madness of greenhouse gas theory (GHE). It also documents some of the “sleight of hand” tricks many of the alarmists employ. Including the shape-shifting ways of James Hansen. From data and graphical manipulation, to his flip-flopping rationalizations of why the earth’s climate isn’t cooperating which his frequent pronouncements of doom. It also documents how other data disputes what is accepted by the catastrophes.
Much of this has been documented here as well. The piece also adds some beautiful irony in regards to the CAGW discussion. As we are often called “flat earthers”, “deniers” and “anti-science”, O’Sullivan points to the fact that the theory used to calculate the earth’s energy budget, employed by the alarmists, is a model of the Earth as a flat disk! Thus, making alarmists truly “flat earthers”. This is important to understand. They’re regarding earth as a two dimensional object which flips back and forth. (day/night), and then try to incorporate that math into the earth’s 3 dimensions which rotates. Read here (short pdf) for an explanation.
But, one of the things this article barely touches on is the response from the science community about the shape-shifting dichotomy held by Hansen and others and the constant manipulation of the data necessary for it to conform to the theory de jour.
Yours truly and many others have documented this dynamic view of history. For instance, O’Sullivan writes about the decline in our sea levels. This was recently “fixed”.
The first graph is measurements Envisat, the second graph is the same measurements altered to conform to Hansen’s and other’s proclamations of doom. Immediately after “fixing” the data, they reported that Envisat had “died”. They continue to manipulate the data of the Jason satellites. Just look at the unimaginable, reality denying revisionism going on today.
Jason II has never had an approach to the apex look like this. The apex has never come this late in the season. The last date of Jason II’s data input is Feb 15. Which was added last month. Jason I’s is in January. Maybe they both died as well?
It isn’t now, nor was it ever a question of science.
