The Science Is Settled – But Send Us More Money

Seeking Certainty on Climate Change: How Much Is Enough? – Scientific American

“It is true that the scientific basis of global long-term trends is settled. We know that sea levels are rising, average temperatures are increasing, and glaciers are dying. We know that business as usual will put our and future generations at risk of great suffering.”

  1. The science is ‘settled’ in the sense that Piltdown man and canals on Mars were ‘settled’, and indeed, if debate on these issues had been suppressed as it is on global warming, these would be the ‘facts’ to be found in every elementary textbook. The ‘science’ behind global warming is not only refutable; it is EASILY refuted, which largely explains the dread these charlatans have of proper debate.

    Adaptation and mitigation, what, really????? Sounds like they never heard of municipal engineering and all the great engineering accomplishments over the past few hundred years that have helped humans prosper and grow? Morons, spuing their garbage and fake science.

    We are absolutely sure that it is happening, but we don’t quite know how it’s going to play out. We’re absolutely 100% sure that humans are causing it, but we’re not very sure of what it actually is. We have the perpetrators, but not yet the crime. We know there will be a crime, big crime, once we invent one, but Nature isn’t cooperating. She’s forcing us to fib a little, so let’s keep that our little secret.

      I’m sorry, but it looks like you have absolutely no idea what you’re talking about.
      FYI, there is no abnormal warming of earth’s atmosphere, and therefore there is no one to blame for it. Since there is no problem, there is no need to fix anything, and no need to worry what would happen if we don’t fix it.
      BTW, even if there was a man-made global warming problem, there would be no sensible way to fix it, but I digress.
      I sincerely hope this helps, but in case you’re still worried about climate related issues, I’d like to recommend that you start getting informed, for real (not propaganda), and Tony’s blog Real Climate Science would be a great place to start the process.

    A declaration of orthodoxy, then the ‘but.’

    I suppose the declaration is required to be allowed to speak at all.

    ‘For example, current global climate models can’t represent cloud systems using the laws of physics because the grid spacing is too coarse (a hundred kilometers or more). In the models, therefore, clouds are represented by highly simplified empirical formulas that describe the clouds’ true properties in a relatively crude way.’

    In other words, the models are FAKE FAKE FAKE. Then, the orthodox dance continues.

    I have watched a number of Hossenfelder vids on YT. She’s quite educational, in spite of her sometimes heavy accent.

    Joseph Goebbles, Adolf Hitler’s Minister of Public Enlightenment and Propaganda, said, “If you repeat a lie often enough, it becomes accepted as truth”.

    Scientific American, indeed most of the world, has fallen for a lie, often repeated. Climate Change.

    Where is the evidence for a change of climate, anywhere on the planet?
    The continental US has the longest and most detailed weather records, of anywhere on earth. Do they show a change of climate, anywhere?
    Does a rise, (or fall), in temperature of 2, 3, or even 4 degrees Celsius, in the average temperature of the entire planet, constitute, “climate change”?
    If we take the middle of the Medieval Warm Period as a benchmark, instead of nearly the end of the Little Ice Age, (1750, as the IPCC does), we have just returned to, “normal”.
    There has been no, climate change, nor is it happening, let alone, is it “real”.

    It is really sad that Miss Hossenfelder is spouting such bullshit.
    She usually has some interesting and critical opinions on science
    about really advanced stuff,
    but she is somehow not able to sea that the sea level rise is a nothingburger by simply comparing high tide photos from 50-100 years ago with current ones.

    I guess she knows her carreer will go the way of Bidens brainas soon as she tells the truth.
