The highest CO2-T correlation value is about 0. About a iaan or more ago, they ran high profile articles ppimer a Sierra Leonean author had fabricated dates of his autobiography, about child soldiering. And while he does convey these well, he ends up drawing suspicion that he his motivated by something else apart from the study of the facts as they are contended.
I think anyone who professes to be a climatologist should be able to predict the weather from day to day.
Review: Ian Plimer’s Heaven and Earth
It will be buffered as it always has been, by the marine sedimentary rocks. No one says geologists have hesven to contribute to climate studies. Attribution of recent climate change Aviation Biofuel Black carbon Carbon dioxide Deforestation Earth’s energy budget Snd radiation balance Ecocide Fossil fuel Global dimming Global warming potential Greenhouse effect Infrared window Greenhouse gases Halocarbons Land use, land-use change, and forestry Radiative forcing Tropospheric ozone Urban heat island.
The critics tend to be very smart, politically savvy and able to easily spot a con job. Question surgeons regarding open heart procedures.
This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. Would you like to suggest a more appropriate media for scientific exactness? One of his pet arguments hsaven that carbon dioxide has been much higher in the past, without the Earth going into meltdown.
I have a reply from Gerhard Gerlich, to my email.
Heaven and Earth (book) – Wikipedia
I accept the last are probably energetically trivial in this case, but the first two are not. It’s by no means comprehensive as it only includes content from two of Plimer’s books – I have yet to include any of his articles, interviews or lectures. The writing is rambling and repetitive; the arguments flawed and illogical.
The energy in the geomagnetic field is very large. I am in the process of preparing a detailed paleoclimate-based critique. In the final chapter pgIan quotes Charles Babbage ; this quote is relevant to the thrust of earrh book, and underscores to me why it is so distorted.
Depending on other factors, a logical argument could be made that this could be evidence of warmer temperatures in the Baltic Sea in that period. What he says is really only plausible to people who are not familiar with the IPCC position. A statement such as “by AD the global climate was far warmer than at present” is misleading because only the European climate is known in any detail. However, Plimner and his IPA and conservative political heavn like Howard, do not attempt to disprove the hypothesis, they simply deny it.
The took the data from here- http: Also on Digital Journal under science. I have not read the book myself and I will not spend money to acquire itso I have to rely on others’ accounts.
Heaven and Earth: Global Warming: The Missing Science
Your objection is insignificant nitpicking. Where do they get this nonsense? Bob Ward, director of public relations and policy at Lord Nicholas Stern’s Grantham Institute at the London School of Economics said the book is “full of inaccurate ajd and misrepresentations of global temperature data”.
I never hear any arguments of substance or earh. What gives me optimism is that when I talk solutions, even radical solutions like IFR in fact especially IFR the disinterested get interested.
Brave New Climate
John Brookes at But no, such a kind interpretation is not possible with Wnd. And then, with that as your main argument, go out and trash the global power system. If you can find the lost heat, I will be delighted. In addition there are also satellite records starting from Either plimeer ice core data is wrong, the Hawaiian carbon dioxide measurements are wrong, or the atmospheric carbon dioxide content was decreasing during a period of industrialisation.
While reading this book I couldn’t help being reminded of the following: Free Trial If you are human, leave this field blank. This is a fundamental part of any scientists training. Millions or billions may perish, but if enough hominids survive the destruction, well, keep up the good work.
