CLIMATE SCIENCE : Who Are The Real “Deniers”?

Climatism GROUPTHINK SHEEP.png


“There is no such thing as consensus science. If it’s consensus, it isn’t science. If it’s science, it isn’t consensus. Period.”
“Historically, the claim of consensus has been the first refuge of scoundrels; it is a way to avoid debate by claiming that the matter is already settled. Whenever you hear the consensus of scientists agrees on something or other, reach for your wallet, because you’re being had.”
“I would remind you to notice where the claim of consensus is invoked. Consensus is invoked only in situations where the science is not solid enough. Nobody says the consensus of scientists agrees that E=mc2. Nobody says the consensus is that the sun is 93 million miles away. It would never occur to anyone to speak that way.” 
– THE late, great Michael Crichton

ONE of the biggest problems with the “climate change” debate today is that so many have been irresponsibly and irreparably brainwashed by political memes; “the science is settled” and that there is a “consensus of scientists” who know with “97%” certainty that humans are destroying the planet thanks to their excessive lifestyles and ‘frivolous’ use of cheap, reliable energy – fossil fuels.

THIS mantra has become so widespread and ‘believed’ that it has unfortunately robbed many of individual sense and reason and the ability, desire or need to investigate objectively information pertaining to the issue.

THEY are then no better than a cheerleading member of a herd protected by the belief system of the mob. A position demanded by the authority where enquiry is discouraged, thus discovery and advancement in knowledge and in ‘science’ is quashed!

A CLASSIC CASE IN POINT (repeated over and over and over again, everyday on social media):

MEET, anonymous “RetroBacklash“,

BIO : “Author-in-training, despiser of far right politics”

*

HE, she or it didn’t like certain data presented (if even looked at) and immediately defaulted to classic groupthink, learned rhetoric :

“Which scientific journal was this published in?”

“It’s a blog… That’s not a peer reviewed article published in a respected scientific journal, it’s just a blog. Is this seriously where you get your info from?”

RetroBackslash (@nmax63) | Twitter

NOT once did he, she or it question the origin of the data. Rather, quickly dismissed it because it came from a “blog”. Might I remind “RetroBacklash” that not every blog is wrong. The NYTimes has a “blog”. Are they wrong all the time “RetroBacklash“?

NO, what we are witnessing here is living and breathing “denial”. A direct result of empirical data directly contradicting the ‘belief’ system of the what has been cemented and established by “RetroBacklash‘s” mob.

THIS comes from the problem with believing in UN IPCC ‘science’. Their assumptions have not changed in the 30 years of their multi-billion dollar, taxpayer funded existence. But why would their assumptions change? Why destroy their own theory when so many egos, reputations and money are now at stake?

THIS post identifies a classic case of “cognitive dissonance”. And here it lives – in your face…

RetroBacklash” REPLY :

NOTE, the lack of any “science” or data in retort. And, in particular note the use of ad-hominem as the key licence to his argument – “gullible”, “where do you get your info from”, and the classic use of ‘appeals to authority’ – That’s not a peer-reviewed respected scientific journal” and “Which scientific journal was this published in?”.

LET’S CHECK THOSE DASTARDLY “BLOGS” TO FIND OUT :

(Government data and any “peer-reviewed” science annotated in RED CAPITALS by Climatism)

Against The Forecasts: Sea Ice Grows…Surface Temperatures Fall… Troposphere Cools…Polar Regions Stable!

German climate and weather analyst “Schneefan” (Snow Fan) here writes a summary of the first half of 2018 thus far. All data show that the surface temperature of the globe has been cooling strongly over the past months and polar ice mass growing.

He writes that in the first half of this year we have seen weak solar activity and La Nina conditions acting to cool the globe’s surface. Moreover Arctic and Antarctic ice mass have grown in comparison to the previous years.

Surface temperatures cool (NCEP GOVERNMENT DATA)

The 2-meter surface temperatures have reached there lowest levels so far this year:

Huge sea ice surprise

“Especially amazing” Arctic ice volume

DATA SOURCE: DMI (Danish Meteorological Institute) DATA PORTAL

Schneefan reports that what’s “especially amazing” is the “powerful growth” in Arctic sea ice volume, which has surged well above the mean of the previous years, according to the data from the Danish Meteorological Institute (DMI):

 

Super-cooled Antarctic: ice grows significantly

Antarctic sea ice area has also grown significantly since last year and has rebounded to a normal level. As of July 5, sea ice extent was just under 12 million sq. km.

DATA SOURCE: AWI, University of Bremen

Greenland ice mass balance surges

Recently NASA expert Jay Zwally confirmed that Antarctic ice mass was on the increase.

Schneefan also reports that Greenland ice mass balance grew for the first time in the current century, and was just recently (July 1st) some 75 billion tonnes above the WMO 1981-2010 climate mean.

Cooling troposphere

Also the mid troposphere at about 7500 meters altitude (400 hPa) shows a very cool temperature level compared to the other years since 2002:

CONCLUSION

DEAR “RetroBacklash“,

THE information that you had direct access to all along is official government data, of which no “peer-review” is necessary.

MOST blogs that I follow and respect contain information translated directly from “peer-reviewed science” and from government data. Maybe next time, click the link and check for yourself, rather than defaulting to groupthink denial and submitting to cognitive dissonance when the data doesn’t fit your preferred narrative, ideology and belief system.

*

WAHT we really have here is a ‘shoot the messenger’ scenario where the scenario disagrees with the belief system of the individual “RetroBacklash” coupled with an obvious lack of knowledge pertaining to the climate change debate. Hence the name-calling and appeals to authority – standard operating procedure.

GROUPTHINK multiplied by cognitive dissonance = the problem with “climate change” and debate we see today.

SADLY, the “RetroBacklash‘s” of the debate are run by ideology, feelings and emotions, and NOT self-informed by data and empirical evidence – because much modern climate data destroys long-held, tired, and rhetorical alarmist arguments. Convenient denial though eternally lazy and dangerous to discovery and truth.

MOREOVER much of the latest government data simply does not accord with the overheated climate models that drive the Climate Crisis Industry into the arbitrary 2100 UN-derived date of doom!

*

THE real tragedy of the daily occurrence identified above is that thanks to the repetitive and engrained “climate change is all our fault” mentality, drummed home daily by the climate-theory-obsessed mainstream media and invested eco-lobby groups, those like “RetroBacklash” will still believe that the government data provided here – exactly what he is asking for – is somehow fake, or created by “deniers’ ….

LET that sink in for a minute.

AND, so who really are the climate science “deniers” then?

    Just watch a Potholer54 video and you will see where they get this crap from. He bashes blogs constantly, and hides behind the “Peer Review” shield. He’s the Pied Piper of brainwashed alarmists that feeds them a constant stream of cherry picked bullshit.

    Skeptics, deniers and scientists cannot answer this question.

    Why did “Global Warming / Climate Change” STALL at (+/-) 1.0 degrees Celsius (1.8 degrees F) from a Mean of 15 degrees Celsius (56.7 degrees F) 10,000 years ago to present?

    First you need the information to contemplate where I get that. You will find Earth History Graphs of temperature online that the past 5 Glacial Periods lasted millions of years with average Means of (+/-) 12 degrees Celsius (54 degrees F). Those graphs also show 4 Interglacial Periods with the Mean Hot of (+/-) 22 degrees Celsius (72 degrees F) that lasted millions of years. This gives the average Mean of 17 degrees Celsius (63 degrees F). Earth’s temperature STALLED after Global Warming to (+/-) 1 degrees Celsius (1.8 degrees F) at 15 degrees Celsius (56.7 degrees F) some 10,000 years ago to present. Meaning our Earth would have to get 2.0 degrees Celsius hotter, to just reach the Global Average Mean of 17 degrees Celsius of the history of Earth’s temperature fluctuations.

    So while we are debating Global Warming and Climate Changes, with semantics of 1.0 degrees Celsius fluctuations – over the past 1.3 century – as being detrimental to all life on Earth. We are still technically in an Ice Age that never ended, because Earth has not surpassed that 17 degrees Celsius at all.
