Posted on 04/16/2013 10:16:22 AM PDT by Kaslin
A new paper that recently replaced the old paper that settled the science of global warming is now out - and not a moment too soon, either.
Because the new paper essentially says: “Um, guys? Never mind.” :/).
Ok, they don't really say that, but actually they really do.
“Sea level rise is one of the big issues of global warming. It could potentially swamp coastal cities or make them far more vulnerable to storms, such as Hurricane Katrina,” says Science World Report, apparently a wholly owned division of Wayne’s World Publishing, operating under the motto “It Certainly Does Suck.”
“Now, though, a study has revealed that it's possible to greatly slow the rate of sea level rise by cutting ‘short-lived climate pollutants,’” continues Science World, “as opposed to more long-lived greenhouse gases, such as carbon dioxide.”
If you’re like me you are wondering how they greatly slow the rate of sea level rise by cutting these short-lived climate pollutants.
The answer: The short-lived climate pollutants seem to have an outsized influence on global warming when compared to carbon.
I’m glad that they finally, absolutely, 100-percent and finally- did I say finally?- understand ALL the mechanisms behind global warming.
To think all this time they were blaming carbon when it was actually these Johnny-come-lately short-lived-climate pollutants, that we’ll now call Teenage Mutant Short-Term Pollutants for marketing and branding purposes.
If I were carbon, I’d be pissed. Or at least half pissed.
“Mitigation of the four short-lived climate pollutants (Teenage Mutant Short-Term Pollutants),” writes Nature Climate Change, “methane, tropospheric ozone, hydrofluorocarbons and black carbon, has been shown to reduce the warming trend by about 50% by 2050.”
Carbon alone isn’t responsible for so-called global warming, say these federally funded international scientists. They don’t say it, but really, that’s what they are saying.
For federal funding purposes, however, the scientists say that we must act now against these new threats or risk…you know it’s coming… even bigger temperature increases later that could possible result in even more federal funding!
“If the [Teenage Mutant Short-Term Pollutants] mitigation is delayed by 25 years,” says Nature, “the warming from pre-industrial temperature exceeds 2 °C by 2050,” exceeding current estimates…somehow.
But that’s not the only settled science that has been revised by the April edition of Nature Climate Change.
In the April edition, Nature acknowledges that global warming has been paused, at least between the period from 2000 to 2010. This time the culprit is much more insidious- and wet.
It seem the “ocean”- that is the body of water that makes up 70 percent of the globe and acts as an ideal energy absorption mechanism- has been slowing down the increase in temperatures. Its almost as if nature designed it that way.
To think! The largest energy absorption mechanism in the world is responsible for sucking up excess energy?
Quick: Ban all high-capacity bodies of water over 16 oz.
And we all thought Mayor Bloomberg was an idiot for trying to ban Big Gulps. Ok, he is an idiot, but he’s also a scientific trendsetter.
No, as we will see shortly, being an idiot and a scientific trendsetter isn’t mutually exclusive.
“Despite a sustained production of anthropogenic greenhouse gases,” writes Virginie Guemas, Francisco J. Doblas-Reyes, Isabel Andreu-Burill, and Muhammad Asif, in Retrospective prediction of the global warming slowdown in the past decade, “the Earth’s mean near-surface temperature paused its rise during the 2000–2010 period. To explain such a pause, an increase in ocean heat uptake below the superficial ocean layer has been proposed to overcompensate for the Earth’s heat storage. …Here we show successful retrospective predictions of this warming slowdown up to 5 years ahead, the analysis of which allows us to attribute the onset of this slowdown to an increase in ocean heat uptake.”
To those of us who lack both the federal training and the federal funding that these scientists have, it might seem like this study “proves” that previous global warming models, which failed to predict this pause in warming, could be flawed in their ability to predict the future.
But that’s where federal scientists come in and deploy massive funding that you and I frankly just won’t ever have access to.
Because with that funding they find: “Our results hence point at the key role of the ocean heat uptake in the recent warming slowdown. The ability to predict retrospectively this slowdown not only strengthens our confidence in the robustness of our climate models, but also enhances the socio-economic relevance of operational decadal climate predictions.”
See? Nothing to worry about.
Being wrong, in retrospect, just proves how right they were all along.
Glad they settled that bit of science for us.
Otherwise us non-scientists might get the impression that they were, well, wrong.
And just think of all the federal funding that would go to waste, retrospectively.

I’m all confused now- Are we evil humans now or not? Should I stop loathign myself and wishign I was never born for all the envirosins I’ve doen to mother earth or not? Please tell me, is man still to blame for natural cyclical warmign cycles or not?
Doh- if opnly someoen woudl tell me how to feel abotu myself- I’m all mixed up now
You jest, but...
the main reason that “global warming” is so attractive to sheeperals is that it gives them a reason to “matter”.
They’re “good people” because they “care about the erf”.
Take global warming away from them and they don’t have their reason to matter and don’t have a way of proving to themselves what good people they are.
Is it any wonder they cling to the idea despite evidence to the contrary?
The real reason for the “reported” rise is sea levels can be directly attributed to liberals peeing on all of us and tell us it is raining.
CO2 was the political gas these frauds tried to shove down our throats to grow big government and regulations to tax the crap out of us. That’s how the left makes their living. If anyone has the cods many in the EPA and other government agencies that were so easily led by the nose into funding this scam should see jail time.
It really does not matter to the votaries of AGW what the truth might be.
I think that was my favorite moment in this piece.
I'm sure that you should continue the self loathing. You can, however, attenuate the pain by giving your money to the "right" people, thereby knowing that you are helping. Still, lest you get too comfortable, please understand that you are almost certainly racist too.
I think that was my favorite moment in this piece.
Hey, don't scoff. I predicted just yesterday that the SF Giants would win the 2012 World Series and I was absolutely correct. (As a bonus, I even predicted the team that they beat.)
Please, have a little more respect for retrospective predictions - they're a lot more accurate than any other kind. :=)
THAT actually got published...in NATURE....unbelievable.
[[You can, however, attenuate the pain by giving your money to the “right” people,]]
Phew- I was hoping there was something- ANYTHING I coudl do to make my lifem uch worse to pay for my envirosins
[[Still, lest you get too comfortable, please understand that you are almost certainly racist too.]]
Yeah I was wondering if I was racist or not- I guess I shoudla just asked a liberal if I was or not- I’ll have to look up how to be racist as I’m ot really even sure how to be- but I’m sure witrh practice I can be a truly dispicable self-loather-
[[THAT actually got published...in NATURE....unbelievable.]]
Yup- unbeleivably they actually beleive evweryoen is stupid enough to beleive their BS- they are geniuses AFTER the fact of course- no matter which way the wind blows, they cand simply ‘readjust their models’ and then claim they had predicted it all along-
They are like psychics or soemthing- psychics that ONLY ‘predict’ events AFTER they happen
[[could be flawed in their ability to predict the future]]
For a week straight recently the weather reports said it was goign to be 60 degrees- EVERY day they put their ‘prediction’ 1 more day ahead- then finally the4 temp did reach the temp they said it woudl a week earlier-
Just keep makign predictions and if enough predictiosn are made, it will cover everyhtign and soemthign is bound to ‘be proven’ at soem point-
