Skip to comments.Top MIT scientist: Newest UN climate report is ‘hilariously’ flawed

Not all scientists are panicking about global warming one of them finds the alarmism hilarious.
A top climate scientist from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology lambasted a new report by the UNs climate bureaucracy that blamed mankind as the main cause of global warming and whitewashed the fact that there has been a hiatus in warming for the last 15 years.
I think that the latest IPCC report has truly sunk to level of hilarious incoherence, Dr. Richard Lindzen told Climate Depot, a global warming skeptic news site. They are proclaiming increased confidence in their models as the discrepancies between their models and observations increase.
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change claimed it was 95 percent sure that global warming was mainly driven by human burning of fossil fuels that produce greenhouse gases. The I.P.C.C. also glossed over the fact that the Earth has not warmed in the past 15 years, arguing that the heat was absorbed by the ocean.
Their excuse for the absence of warming over the past 17 years is that the heat is hiding in the deep ocean, Lindzen added. However, this is simply an admission that the models fail to simulate the exchanges of heat between the surface layers and the deeper oceans.
However, it is this heat transport that plays a major role in natural internal variability of climate, and the IPCC assertions that observed warming can be attributed to man depend crucially on their assertion that these models accurately simulate natural internal variability, Lindzen continued. Thus, they now, somewhat obscurely, admit that their crucial assumption was totally unjustified.
Scientists have been struggling to explain the 15-year hiatus in global warming....

OK!! Everybody pay attention!
Lesson for today:
1. The sun is 1,300,000 times as big as the earth.
2. The sun is a ball of fire that controls our climates.
3. The earth is a rock.
4. The earth is a speck in comparison to the size of the sun.
5. Inhabitants of the earth are less than specks.
Study Question: How do less-than-specks in congress plan to control the sun?
If there is so much heat going into the ocean, why aren't there more hurricanes?
Exactly how does all that extra heat end up hiding in the deep ocean?
Oh don’t be ridiculous.....
I LOVE that
Yet this Kool-Aid drinker is in tears over the latest AGW blather. Business Insider is all over it.
It is worth noting that one of the greatest weaknesses of the generally accepted beliefs about global warming/climate change/whatever weather is that A causes B in a simple, linear mental model in which one factor (fossil fuel burning) causes undesirable climate. There are other factors discussed but the dominant factor is fossil fuel burning. However, the climate is what scientists call a complex system and does not behave linearly nor is it simple, gradual, smooth cause-and-effect relationship over time. The author is at MIT, which is one of the homes, if not THE home, of dynamic, complex systems thinking. Freepers might use this bit of knowledge when accosted by climate change people who are guided by these simple mental models.
Also, why don’t kids boil when they play on the beaches in CA?
“Exactly how does all that extra heat end up hiding in the deep ocean?”
The Global Warming pseudo-scientists put it there so the skeptics couldn’t find it.
UN fraud alert for later......
This is quotable.
Two common answers come to mind. Feel free to pick either.
1) Global warming causes that
2) Its Bush's fault
Ba-da-bing! I'll be here all week. Try the veal.
