How Did Climate Science Get It So Badly Wrong?

The long term cooling trend pictured above is likely due to colliding continents and other large-scale geologic and cosmologic phenomena. The short-term cooling trend Earth is currently experiencing, seems to be due to multidecadal oceanic climate oscillations--the PDO and the AMO.

Imminent global cooling due to changes in solar activity, is a more ominous possibility, Another little ice age spawned by a 21st century "Maunder Minimum" would condemn hundreds of millions of third worlders to death by famine. NASA has finally come out in the open about the current historic solar minimum currently detected by advanced satellite. This new information opens the door to the Svensmark Phenomena of cosmic ray induced global cooling.

Climate catastrophe has been vastly overrated, and derives from the most corrupted sector of science known to history, with the exception of Soviet and Maoist science in the communist dark ages. When politics takes over science--as it has in the case of the IPCC and the climate science mafia (PDF)--that area of science is no longer reliable.

We are living at an energy-critical period of time. Advanced civilisation relies upon abundant energy supplies to provide its citizens with both the necessities and luxuries of living. If erroneous scientific theories choke civilisation of the energy it needs to progress--as is happening under the current US Congress, the current European Union, the current government of Australia, etc.--progress will stop, economies will falter and fall, and most people will remain clueless as to the reasons that life became so hard and cruel, so quickly.

This is the pivot point between a time of true abundance, and a return to widespread poverty, famine, and pandemic. It is not a decision for our descendants nor our ancestors. It is our choice right now. If we choose to let foolish politicians choke our economies by choking our energy supplies, we will never see the singularity, never live the next level. All of the amazing advances discussed by Kurzweil and other visionaries are possible eventually. But not if we cut ourselves off at the knees by following erroneous "science."

We are already suffering from bad decisions made in the past by politicised science. As bad science is piled onto other bad science, we run the risk of chasing our own tails--digging ourselves more deeply into the dirt that will become our own graves. Worse than mere distraction, we are spending more and more of our hard-earned surplus on unsupportable theories--thus depriving our future selves and descendants of the infrastructure of abundance that would make their lives better than ours.

But I believe The Science Channel is or has shown a segment about all of the "ingenious" ways different organizations are attempting to cool the earth.


The upside is that we will be able to eat as much as we want and justify it as an "adaptation" to our cold climate.

The list is pretty well endless and I'm at a loss to figure out where to start. Perhaps climate "science" when wrong when the practioners started worrying more about future funding than about finding root causes?

Dear Al:
Thank you so much for telling the truth. I have stopped reading the newspapers, stopped listening to the news, stopped reading the science magazines, and I certainly don't listen to politicians like McCain. All of these are lying to us. You and Exxon are now my only source of information; the rest are filtered out.

Yes. Unfortunately, Mann, Hansen, Briffa, Jones, Schmidt, etc. are doing to climate science what junk bonds, affirmative action lending practise, and credit default swaps are doing to Wall Street.

Why, you poor sweet dear! You really must try harder to get out more, dear.

Consult the posting above for many excellent sources on climate information. Consult the Al Fin sidebar for hundreds of sources on all topics. You owe it to yourself!
