Cartoon Of The Day!!!!!!

Most of the readers here have been at this too long to think this is funny.  But, it is real ….. sort of.  The fact is, we still haven’t come up with a way to accurately measure our global temperature, and then relate what we think we know about the temperature today, vs the temperature of yesteryear.  There simply is no realistic way of doing so.  Even the recent satellite temps are unreliable in that they have undergone several iterations, each time, believing it was better than the last iteration, but, offering no realistic proof that it is.  The surface based observations (thermometer readings) are even in a worse mess …. a much worse mess. 

The problems, but, not limited only to what I’m going to state, are the amount and distribution and the environment around our thermometers are not static, they never were static. 

We planted a few thermometers in places where mostly Western Civilization existed.  Later, as other places became exposed to Western culture, we planted some more.  Even today, there are huge expanses of land and water which have no thermometers.  Worse, most of the thermometers move!  That is to say, the thermometers we orginally planted in most places are not exactly where they were when we planted the original ones.  But, then, they’re not even the same types of thermometers and were not calibrated the same way.  The exceptionally few places which remain static are in entirely different environents than when they were originally planted.   There is absolutely no way or manner in which we can relate our current concept of global temperature to the global temperatures of the past.  It is simply impossible.  But, some are sure of our global temps, and how they relate to the temps of yesteryear to the precision of 1/100ths of a degree. 

Anyone who doubts what I’ve stated above either hasn’t looked into the issue, or, is simply too passionate in their belief that mankind is a malicious imposition to nature. 

So, given that we cannot prove nor disprove the concept of our globe warming, how can we possibly come to the conclusion that it is warming because a very slight increase of CO2 in our atsosphere?  It’s utter idiocy.

There are, of course, many,many more problems with the notion of global warming, such as the problem with IR and the output of the sun vs the earth, ….. as mentioned in the cartoon, the modeling, the constant tinkering with historical data, the constant failure to meet the expectations (predications) one would have with a warming globe, such as no longer snowing, increases in hurricanes, tornadoes and other natural events.  Oddly, despite the constant predictions of starvation, the world has continued to increase crop production even to outpace population increase. 

Now, as we are heading to the 2020’s, we should recall the dire predictions and alarms sounded in the 80’s regarding the potential catastrophe of the said “global warming” (which no one can prove).  It’s been damned near 4 decades of predictided doom and gloom, and death and dispair. 

Global warming is as real as the fictional character Dilbert.

  1. I can’t think of a better argument than ‘cow farts’, to turn oneself into a cartoonist.

    The fictional character, Dilbert, is more real than global warming. I’ve seen the equivalent in action at my former place of work. (So has Scott Adams.)

    Adams is a warmist. He is not even questioning AGW! He did, like Christy, question the economic impact. And the alarmists are melting down and of course calling him a denier, just like the cartoon!

    They are literally the self fulfilling prophylactics!

    • cdquarles says:

      I’ve visited his blog. He says that he is agnostic on the subject because he cannot sort through the science. Given that, he plays to his strengths and acknowledges that he is biased and that all of us are biased. He does not come across, to me, as a warmist. He comes across as someone analyzing human nature.

      • philjourdan says:

        He is not a warmist in the sense that he is out carrying a sign saying we are doomed. But he is more like Judith Curry- he knows man is having an impact. Beyond that, he is not committed to an ideology.

        And yes, he sticks to his strengths. With one strip, he has gotten more publicity and talk than millions of dollars of advertising could have brought in. He is no dummy.

        • dirkhblog says:

          The day James posted this my boss here in Germany showed me the strip, as I have a reputation for being a climate denier round here. He collects Dilbert strips.
          Which is quite a fad amongst otherwise mentally enslaved German programmers.
          Scott Adams is wreaking havoc with their conditioning. Very nice.

        • cdquarles says:

          Of course man has an impact. It is local. All other life also has an impact, also local. My issue is the misuse of temperature, since so many don’t seem to know what the thermodynamic definition is; and statistics, so they don’t know that an average is a description of a set, not a thing on its own.

          I say that, now that so many live in cities, they don’t know what the rest of the planet is like. Just as ant mounds and bee hives are warmer than the rest of the area surrounding it, so are man’s cities. Just because the cities are warming does not make the planet have to do the same. I can tell people until I’m blue in the face (figuratively) that it is not warmer now than it was when my grandparents are born. Sure, the calculated average changed, but the real world mostly hasn’t; again in particular, away from the big metropolis.

          How many know how sensitive the arithmetic mean happens to be to outliers? What happens when you have a less variable maximum and a more variable minimum? /rhetorical Even more so, which world would you rather live in? One that is prone to a wide range or one with a more limited range that overlaps the optimum for your survival?

        • Latitude says:

          Since most of the time this planet has existed it has been way below optimum…and the few optimums are just tips on the top of the temp charts
          …the set point is obviously a lot colder

          Only people would complain about that

  4. Latitude says:

    They been trying to “prove” this science is settled for decades…and haven’t been able to shut a denier down yet….
    ….and the saddest part is, it should be something very simple to prove
    If they can’t prove water is wet by now…they will never be able to

    • dirkhblog says:

      What’s fascinating is that these lardasses never DISCOVERED ANYTHING. Yet they continue to insist that they are scientists.

      • Since climate is a chaotic system, it would be nice to know what the actual attractors and strange attractors are. Unfortunately, like the case where “if your only tool is a hammer everything is a nail” analogy; since CO2 is their only tool, we get very little advancement of the science. They are stuck on stupid.

        Jim

        • Advancing the control of people and their money was allowed to take over. Witch doctors and their snake oils. Again.

        • cdquarles says:

          One thing, to me, is this obfuscation of things. Weather is a chaotic system. Climate is a statistical summary of the previously realized weather, specifically and particularly that of an arbitrary set of premises and a specific location. A woodlot’s climate, usually called a microclimate, is not the same as seen in the grassy field’s, nor is it the same as a sandlot’s.

        • In climate research and modelling, we should recognize that we are dealing with a coupled nonlinear chaotic system, and therefore that long-term prediction of future climate states is not possible.

          IPCC Third Assessment Report (2001), Section 14.2.2.2, page 774

          Need I say more?

          Jim

        • cdquarles says:

          Correct, for to do that, one must be able to know each and every one of the series of now’s finite results in order to have a range of states to predict. Again, the chaotic system is the weather, not the climate. The climate is a statistical summary of the previously experienced weather.

          This is, in my mind, where they go wrong. They are far too overconfident in too narrow a range, using an ill-posed problem to ask the wrong questions.

  5. Me says:

    Here is one real threat! And the Glo-bull whining isn’t as bad but ends the same way! Those with power controlling everything! Freedom be damned! Bottom line!

  6. Me says:

    Bwaaahahaha! Now they are changing their tune that they got what they wanted, Seen Skeletor and Frankenstein do the same lately!

    • Me says:

      Oops, I forgot Mrs James Brown hair diddy the same and the center of this, Mr glassy eyes pretty creepy guy, here front and center is doing the same? Why is that happening suddenly????? Wouldn’t be cause election time is rolling around??? LMAO! But it wouldn’t matter anyway, they are the last on that sinking ship, all trying to be Capt. Ahab!

      • Me says:

        And if Mr glassy eyes pretty creepy guy is offended, then he should be blaming Holly weird for their way of portraying serial predators! Again all on the same sinking ship! Bottom line, and everyone knows it!

  7. Me says:

    Well here is somethang ya think is real? But you have the second! And that is where reality meets fantasy!

    • dirkhblog says:

      Mao actually destroyed all the remnants of old martial art schools including Shaolin monastery.
      What they present today is a tourist trap, with choreographed impressive moves.
      Ain’t actual fighting.
      There’s a reason the boxer rebellion was called boxer rebellion. They pretty much boxed and grappled, which is one of the more effective techniques. No fancy schmancy Kung Fu moves.

  8. Me says:

    Fake stream media doing what they always do like the leftarded Click they are!

  9. Latitude says:

    Gotta love the liberal media….analyzing whether Trump sounded presidential or not.

  10. Latitude says:

    People are complaining about Trump letting them down…..
    Hillary and the democrats are not president….Gorsuch is on the supremes

    …that’s more than enough for me

    • leftinflagstaff says:

      Agreed.

      I never expected that most of it to be achieved through politicians and elections anyway. Those days are gone.

    • >>

      I’m worried that he might burn out before completing his term. A friend keeps wishing he’d stop tweeting. Some of his tweets are stupid, but most of what he does makes the liberals’ heads explode. I’m all for that.

      He also has a lot of “hidden agenda” people lying in wait throughout the federal government (thanks to Obama). He’s doing a lot of upstream paddling trying to clean all the muck out of the swamp. It’s going to take time–if he doesn’t burn out in the process.

      And he’s not a perfect conservative–but he’s better than anything we’ve had since Reagan.

      Jim

      • Jim, I wish this was only about ‘Obama Hidden-Agenda People,’ or ‘the swamp.’ I think it’s much more serious than that. The ‘United’ States is over. It’s now just back to two vastly opposing people vying for control of the same landmass. I think all that’s left to be determined is, how long can these skirmishes between our two nations remain political only.

      • suyts says:

        Jim, you’re right, except it isn’t just because of Obama. There are people in our government, not appointed by our president, who simply despise the American people. They are globalists and leftists and they are entrenched. With some, it literally takes an act of congress to remove.

        • leftinflagstaff says:

          Weird. In your comment, after ‘an act of”…. ‘an armed citizenry ‘ auto-corrected to ‘congress.’

          😀

    • philjourdan says:

      that’s more than enough for me

      The first half is enough for me. The second is icing on the cake.

    Funny how you betray the people you count on and then this happens!
