Sorry -- I'm with the flatpack at the moment.
The article takes data points, extrapolates them. This is what science is supposed to do. Shortly after that some of the statements run off the rails.
Do NOT get the idea that I am a climate change denier. Most definitely the climate we're living is is changing. Rather rapidly over the last 20 years of my experience.
What is also (measurably) changing is the amount of C02 we're dropping into the atmosphere.
Also changing - known variables in the climate models such as;
total volume of arboreal mass (C02 eating material)
total thermal values of water masses
insolation variation levels both historical and current
corrective variations in both historical and current measurements of localized temperatures.
Now, I can look out my window at my spottily covered lawn that in *my* past would have had upward of two feet of snow on it at this time of year and say - yup - its kinda warm out there. So, yes dammit the climate is changing.
As long as the IPCC supporting groups keep having to *change* values in the models *every single* iteration - then those models are not conclusive. Once we can run those models consistently without having to massage the data in inconsistent manners we'll have models that come close to being conclusive.
What *I* and rather a *lot* of intelligent folks who do have basic comprehension of science are saying is that some of the *political* actions that are occurring are not in any way shape or form going to solve *any* of the issues we're concerned about with global warming. That some of the actions are motivated *solely* by financial gain of entities that will do the least they can but charge the most, justifying their actions by "save the children, save the planet". That the most efficient, most effective, and best understood technologies are being ignored in cases where they are truly the best interim solution. That decisions about climate based energy solutions are being made without contemplating .... the fact .. that ... CLIMATE IS CHANGING.
The level of greed, ignorance and outright bigotry in regard the climate change issue and the political bullshit being spewed in *all* directions in the mass media by various groups of allied idiots is staggering.
Yes the climate is changing. Yes - C02 numbers are sky-rocketing. Yes it shirley looks like C02 is to blame.
But - the models don't work without *lots* of number management, the data values are being challenged by non climate types who have *every* reason to be listened to from their neck of the woods, scientists all. Yes 96% of climate scientists agree the climate is changing. **NOT** all of them like the data in the models.
That intelligent, considered discussion is possible amongst some is a good thing. It helps if you have a clue about the systems involved, but committing to spending the equivalent of several dozen years of GDP to a solution *right here right now* needs to be done in a manner that will not leave our grandchildren destitute, starving, cold and in the dark.
