    OT but related somehow: Looks like Lief has flip flopped on Solar climate relationship

      Great find! 🙂
      Now I want to hear him say it explicitly, i.e., that the Sun is the main driver of climate, but I’m not holding my breath though.
      As the hockeyschtick comment says, the Sun plus oceans give almost all of Earth’s temperatures, I’m absolutely convinced of that.
      If he’s really changing his mind it’d be very important if he says it clearly, to open the door for others to follow.
      OTOH, he’s clear about his belief that we could be entering a period like the Maunder minimum, in connection with the L&P effect- the Maunder period is the only one he calls grand minimum in recent centuries, while the Dalton period was just a “normal low” period.
      IMO he’s correct in both counts, although the L&P effect is probably caused by some indirect magnetic effect, associated with the increased ratio of small-over-big spots noted recently, but probably not the original idea, which Livingston doesn’t support anymore although Penn still does,
      The following graph is one of the most impressive I’ve seen regarding how different the present cycle is in comparison with previous ones,
      We’re certainly *not* in normal cycle, and the aa-index just confirms it

      If we are entering a new Maunder and if solar forcing is the main driver of Earth’s climate, it’s easy to conclude what’s coming in the remaining decades of this century. Abdusamatov and others have been talking about this possibility too,

      You just got to love a “solar expert” that does not understand photon flux.

      Only in “climate science”….

      L. S. Had his rear end handed to him by the gang of engineers over at Jo Nova’s about a month ago. Maybe he has been ordered to eat crow so as not to lose to much ground with sceptics.
      and again

      These are towards the very end of the 800plus comments:
      The discussion is why L. S. insist his flattened TSI reconstruction must be used in Dr. Evan’s model instead of the data that Dr. Evans used. Dr Evans does use L.S. reconstruction data and shows it in the top of the post yet L.S. continually bashes Dr. Evans for not doing so getting a bit nasty with thinly veiled accusisations…. weirder than snake shoes.

      “one must first know the ‘true value’ which you are trying to measure.”
      Especially an engineer should know that this is a question of error bars and measurement precision, not about ‘knowing’ anything [Emphasis mine].

      How could I have missed this choice comment? It says it all. It is not about ‘knowing’ anything. Finally an honest statement from the man. He doesn’t know anything but thinks that doesn’t matter.

      Because of his lack of knowing and abundance of *believing*, he gets to assert anything and the rest of us are supposed to genuflect in front his superior mystical insight into the hidden workings of the universe. We mere mortals are unworthy of such awesome magnificence. Even the Wizard of OZ must bow to his brilliance. Toto, not so much. Calling him a putz is an overvaluation of what he is.

      Isn’t it interesting? The more he posts the more he exposes himself for who and what he actually is. That is the way it works. If we say anything at all, we expose our inner self. If we say enough, we become totally exposed. Here he stands stripped of all pretense for all to see in his own words. This even as he desperately tries to hide behind a squid like squirting of words.

      As was once said, it is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and prove it.

      …[Leif,]I looked at the “tim” link document. They presented as “The Science” the non existent greenhouse effect driven by a non physical back radiation adding to the energy absorbed by the surface of the earth. Why should I consider anything else on that website to be valid or relevant to anything in this universe? Don’t you have anything better than this kind of pseudo scientific garbage?

      Again, I don’t have to prove a damn thing to you. It is YOUR responsibility to prove you are not a troll sent here by your puppet masters to disrupt the process.

      There is a fundamental principle of systems analysis: The purpose of a system is what it does.

      I judge you by what you have done. So far it is the work of a troll dancing on the end of strings controlled by someone else. There is no substance to anything you say.….

    Oooops … They better delete or ‘adjust’ this file to show Warming!!

  3. Steve, are you suggesting a correlation between warm temperatures and revolutions? 😉

    • Gail Combs says:

      The actual link is between cooling temperatures and revolutions. Famine has a nasty habit of doing that. Think French Revolution.

      The CIA was getting a bit worried about it in 1974.

      A Study of Climatological Research as it Pertains to Intelligence Problems

      … Since 1972 the grain crisis has intensified…. Since 1969 the storage of grain has decreased from 600 million metric tons to less than 100 million metric tons – a 30 day supply… many governments have gone to great lengths to hide their agricultural predicaments from other countries as well as from their own people…

      pg 9
      The archaeologists and climatotologists document a rather grim history… There is considerable evidence that these empires may not have been undone by barbarian invaders but by climatic change…. has tied several of these declines to specific global cool periods, major and minor, that affected global atmospheric circulation and brought wave upon wave of drought to formerly rich agricultural lands.

      Refugees from these collapsing civilizations were often able to migrate to better lands… This would be of little comfort however,… The world is too densely populated and politically divided to accommodate mass migration….

      And the Donkey’s Rearends in our government DESPITE this history did away with the US strategic grain reserves in 1996. By 2008, the USDA announced “The Cupboard is bare” and there were food riots in 60 countries.

        LIke JIhadis seeking to inflict ‘death to infidels’, our Rearends hold similar views. Did the Malthusians get inspiration from Islam? The world may never know :P.
