    I Love It! Pruitt to head EPA is Obama's Worst Nightmare

    President-Elect Trump has pierced the veils surrounding the holy of holies wherein reside the eco-dogmatists of the EPA and the U.N. and promises the rightful return of respect to the essence of scientific research…skepticism. In 1746, philosopher Denis Diderot penned, “Skepticism is the first step towards truth.” Billions of taxpayer monies have been spent by our progressively bent government and its crony supplicants to turn that concept on its head. Mass media acolytes wordsmithed “skeptic” into a dirty word. Emulating the harsh but masterful government propaganda machine of 1930s Germany, they successfully convinced much of the public and ruling class that the life-sustaining trace gas, carbon dioxide, is an earth-destroying pollutant. Federal agencies promoted the concept and dispensed billions of dollars in lavishly funding those scientists and commercial interests willing to pervert the term “climate change,” a constant feature of geohistory, into a man-made threat and a money-making commercial enterprise. Classical scientific inquiry relies on axioms governing the formation of a tentative hypothesis, a nascent theory, and subsequent rigorous comparisons of predictions based on such a theory and real-world observations. Climate computer-derived forecasts have consistently failed to match long-term climate reality. Much of the error results from the dogmatic insistence by activist researchers that the model is reality, rather than a much simplified theoretical construct. A trusting public expects the tax monies and gifts showered on universities and researchers to result in scientific reports and validated findings based on an impartial process. What did it get? It got Al Gore putting the carbon dioxide temperature change before the global temperature change horse. It got “ClimateGate.” It got a Supreme Court that ruled that the Earth’s greenhouse gases are air pollutants covered by the Clean Air Act. It got the “carbon dioxide endangerment finding” by the EPA administrator du jour that gave legal power to the federal bureaucracy to regulate greenhouse atmospheric concentrations because they “threaten the public health and welfare of current and future generations.” It got “ethanolized” gasoline, to the delight of corn farmers, but also a gas tank brew that gives lower mileage and more net pollution. It got wind and solar power advertised as “clean and free energy sources.” It got to see the resultant mountaintop destruction of natural habitats, and the conversion of farmland into automobile fuel stock. It got to see wind turbine slaughter of eagles become a federally countenanced collateral damage cost. It also thereby got needlessly more expensive and less reliable electric energy. It got higher tax bills as complicit state legislators mandated increasing use of highly subsidized renewables. It got “free solar” residential electricity subsidized by federal and state tax giveaways paid for on the backs of the poor. It got to see the oxymoron “crony capitalism” in action. It got to see scientifically illiterate Hollywood stars become climate and energy experts, forgetting that great actors become great by making the audience believe that what is not true seems true, and by mouthing words written by others. It got to see the dire computer-generated scare stories of coming climate catastrophes fail to materialize on schedule. It got to see a progressive waning of sunspot activity, and now a renewed concern about an approaching period of significant global cooling such as characterized the “Little Ice Age” of the 15th-18th century. Echoing Ross Perot, the next great sucking sound should be that of the Washington, D.C. swamp being drained and taking away the accumulated detritus of pseudo-science coopted in the service of false dogma and political favoritism, with the subsequent restoration of “skepticism” to its place as a benchmark for the advancement of scientific knowledge. Soon to be ex-president Obama is throwing as much sand as possible into the energy machinery on his way out the door. What can only be interpreted as a petulant and defiant act of sabotage, he is poisoning the well of energy and environmental reform promised by president-elect Trump. Labor employment figures may take a hit for a bit, as the newly unemployed bureaucrats, non-tenured university researchers, renewable energy businesses shorn of governmental subsidies, commercial mega-farmers of corn-for-ethanol, and the supporting cast of radical environmentalists and NGOs look for gainful employment. http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2016/12/the_next_great_sucking_sound.html

    Trump Should Quickly Rescind Obama’s Drilling BanIn his enviro-extremism, President Obama is attempting to tie President-elect Trump’s hands by blocking vast swaths of the Arctic Ocean and stretches of the Atlantic from oil and natural-gas drilling. The gambit, announced by the administration on Tuesday, is part of an eleventh-hour wave by which Obama is flooding the regulatory zone: Promulgating so many rules – of the unpopular, hard-left variety that Democrats dare not unveil before Election Days – that he hopes the Trump administration will find it too cumbersome to undo all of them. The incoming president should not let his predecessor get away with it. Obama’s lawyers apparently believe they’ve found a loophole that could make the anti-drilling ban stick. President Trump, however, will have the power to rescind it, and should do so promptly....

    Okay, so when you paint yourself into a corner, your method is to delete posts and pretend you never wrote it? This is what you wrote two days ago ... But now you've "reinvented" your knowledge on this and you're no longer ignorant of polar orbiting spectral measurement. Good. But then what did you do? You try to confuse mm-wavelength light with micron-wavelength light, as if you knew about satellite RS all along. Look at both of those quotes there with your name on top of them ... are you actually that indebted to the shitfight that you're willing to lie to yourself like that? How can you possibly be scientific with any approach if you can't even be honest with yourself on your own lack of knowledge? The most learned people are the ones who realize how little they know. But you ... You just lie to yourself that you know all. That, NGS, is one of the hallmarks of the most effective disinformationist. They have to believe their lies to lie with the greatest convincing authority. still laughing at you Wolsey.

    Another good way to do it if you are short on time is take a float plane up from Seattle or Vancouver to Powell River where you can charter. Great way to do Desolation Sound.

    Didn't say that was my photo. This is. Same harbor, my son exploring in the rib. Looks like you're a powerboater. No surprise there. We always charter a power boat in BC. Too little wind and not enough time to get places.

    Lie. You wrote a couple weeks ago that the Greenhouse Effect is insignificant. You obviously know nothing about the Earth's atmosphere to write something so purely wrong. My comments addressed the greenhouse effect of carbon dioxide which diminishes with concentration and the fact that the principle absorption bands at 400ppm are essentially, for all intents and purposes, saturated. This is what I said. The ability of CO2 to absorb infrared diminishes with concentration logarithmically such that each doubling (from 200-400, 400-800ppm etc) produces the same amount of warming, roughly 1 degree C. The current concentration in our atmosphere is about 400ppm or .04 percent where the effect is for all intents and purposes saturated. That is basic physics. Millions of years ago, the concentration was much higher, by some 20x, but it never reached levels you are talking about and never will. If you read about the carbon cycle you will understand why this is true. CO2 is not driving temperatures to any great extent. The greenhouse effect is a real effect, don't get me wrong. But it is trivial, diminishing and probably not even measurable. But carbon dioxide is having one very beneficial effect. It is driving up agricultural productivity and greening the planet because carbon dioxide is plant food. And owing to plant physiology, which I won't delve into, it is doing other things like making plants more resistant to drought and lessening water use. This greening which is taking place is very spectacular, actually measurable from space with satellite observations. Some of the photos of this from NASA are quite spectacular. Greenpeace and other environmental organizations should be celebrating. In a subsequent post I provided additional information to educate you about the basic physical principles involved: "The effective cross-section of CO2 of absorption for CO2 in its rotational bands is also well known (HITRAN). Using the current concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere it is also clear that essentially all the radiation emitted by the surface in these bands is already absorbed by CO2 at pre-industrial levels. In fact spectra from space show that the main CO2 bands are saturated in the lower atmosphere with minimal emission from the high atmosphere. The absorption of radiation follows a logarithmic law with distance assuming a uniform concentration of CO2 in air. All that happens if you double the concentration of CO2 in air is that the absorption length is halved." -- Clive Best, PhD "There are 3 main CO2 bands of IR absorption at wavelengths 1388, 667, 2349 cm-1 (HITRAN) and these are already saturated at current levels of CO2 in the atmosphere. Infra Red measurements from space show that the atmosphere is opaque at these wavelengths." "The absorption length for the existing concentration of CO2 is around 25 meters i.e. the distance to reduce the intensity by 1/e. All agree that direct IR radiation in the main CO2 bands is absorbed well below 1 km above the earth. Increasing levels of CO2 merely cause the absorption length to move closer to the surface. Doubling the amount of CO2 does not double the amount of global warming. Any increase could be at most logarithmic and this is also generally agreed by all sides." The claims that the earth has been warming, that there is a greenhouse effect, and that mans activities have contributed to warming, are trivially true and essentially meaningless in terms of alarm. -- Richard Linden, PhD(Chairman Emeritus Department of Atmospheric Physics, MIT) http://i.telegraph.c...ns_2148505a.pdf You can paste an encyclopedia into your posts, but it doesn't change what you wrote. And what you wrote was so perfectly wrong that it demolishes every other thing you write on this subject. If you can't understand the very basics of the Greenhouse Effect, then you can't understand anything about atmospheric molecules, and spectral absorption. Maybe stick to politics, you're clearly not a scientist. Or become trained as a scientist. But pasting in other people's words does not mean that you understand it, you lack the ability to differentiate science from disinformation. I stated the well-known and basic physical spectral properties of CO2 in the atmosphere and quoted two physicists as support, the same physics, by the way which are described by the IPCC. You are simply wrong and I am right, and I can provide many additional references to help you along. Just let me know. PS. Still laughing about your claim that the polar orbiting satellites used to generate the global temperature datasets are measuring IR.
