Michael Mann and his ‘trust me’ science

If you can’t tell the truth about something easily verifiable, why would anyone believe you on something that can’t be verified.

So here is say-anything Michael Mann in the NYTimes on December’s weather:

How he knows what he claims is a mystery. But you should believe him because he repeatedly told the truth about winning a Nobel prize:

  1. Mike likes to “hide the decline”. For more info see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WMqc7PCJ-nc . And expressions of pudendal shame about disclosing “proprietary” records won’t excuse less than full disclosure. Just make a clean breast of it Mike, and go where it takes you.

    Adopting the role of a missionary for use of the police power of the State to impose huge regulatory burdens on ordinary people should require a high standard of proof. It also makes proponents public figures, subject to a high degree of public criticism. We’re all interested to get an inside look at Mike’s taxpayer-funded “proprietary” work product.

    Maybe climate is warming. It is supposed to be warming, because earth is emerging from an ice age. Which begs the question why some scientists and government agencies would pad the record by “adjusting” prior-period temperature data.

    Our present climate is pleasant and productive. I like it, and hope it warms further. But that warming is not caused by fossil fuels use. Spending $44 trillion (as estimated by the IEA) to limit fossil fuels is madness. That is a waste of nearly 30% of the cumulative savings of mankind, and $7,000 for every human being.

    Carbon dioxide emissions and fossil fuels use are beneficial, and climate change is a false premise for regulating them. See Patrick Moore’s recently released lecture http://www.thegwpf.com/28155/.

    There is no empirical evidence that CO2 from fossil fuels affects climate. Human activities cause only about 3% of all carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions to the atmosphere. The rest are the result of decomposing plant material.

    CO2 is in equilibrium. While a weak greenhouse gas in theory, its actual climate effects are nullified by stronger forces, particularly the formation of mineral carbonates from atmospheric carbon dioxide. Warmer weather from other causes increases natural CO2 emissions from rotting vegetation, and results in a higher equilibrium level of ambient CO2, as measured by Keeling.

    Mineral carbonates are the ultimate repository of atmospheric CO2. Anyone who passed 10th grade chemistry can know this using public information. Limestone and marble are the most familiar forms of mineral carbonate. CO2 is an essential component of mineral carbonate (CaCO3, for calcium). For more detail see the paper http://bit.ly/1NziTF4 by Danish researcher Tom Segalstad, and http://quadrant.org.au/opinion

    Carbonates form in seawater and soils through biological and chemical processes. The formula is CO2 + CaO => CaCO3. Anyone can make magnesium carbonate in a kitchen by mixing carbonated water with milk of magnesia.
