    Thanks Ari. After reading the conclusion and a couple other chapters, Dr. Curry recognizes the AMO, natural cycles and addresses some of the alarmism out there. But, still warmist, she still assumes CO2 has magical warming powers and supports scenarios of sea level rise in the next 8 decades of 8 inches to 2 feet (and possibly but highly unlikely up to 5 ft.), which is pretty much in line with what I recall came out of AR5. So, although she recognizes natural cycles, she still assumes that curbing CO2 output would slow down warming and sea level rise.

    • Ari says:

      Her minimum of 8 inches by 2100 comes out about the same sea rise of today which means zero faster rise because of GW. That still is a pretty good conclusion even if she does have to “protect” herself while giving also the higher estimates. Still I don’t think this makes much difference to the alarmist media with their 20 feet predictions.

      That is disturbing. CO2 and warming has nothing to do with sea level rise. Sea level IS going up and Greenland and Antarctica are most probably where the extra water is coming from. BUT contrary to the usual headlines, Greenland and Antarctica can’t melt. It’s way below freezing there nearly everywhere nearly all the time. But they can lose ice if more ice calves into the sea than forms from snowfall. Since the snowfall and calving of bergs is separated by decades or centuries – Temperature doesn’t have anything to do with it.

    Okay, it is the Guardian, an easy target. Feels like mocking the mentally ill.

    But WTF is “the biggest and fastest thing that nature has ever done” supposed to mean?!
