Skip to comments.Top MIT scientist: Newest UN climate report is ‘hilariously’ flawed
Posted on 09/29/2013 2:00:43 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
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.
actually heat rises... I think
“5. Inhabitants of the earth are less than specks.
Study Question: How do less-than-specks in congress plan to control the sun?”
We need 6. Congresscritters are millions of times more worthjless than less-than-specs.
Study Question: What is the minimum cost of eliminating, crushing, and removing all knowledge of congresscritters?
Hey, what the heck, they get to make up science, I get to make up science.
They are not sure because they are only ignorant politicians, but they do know they can look like they are doing something if they just tax us more.
There’s this game too: The summary is a political document that has almost nothing to do with the scientific report (released tomorrow). The politicians talk about the summary, the scientists talk about the science report but they are talking about two very different things.
The UN-scientists (aka: unscientists) should be forced to read their less than worthless dissertations. In their case, PhD means piled higher and deeper.
“Study Question: How do less-than-specks in congress plan to control the sun?”
By taxing Americans and giving that money to the DNC. Was this a trick question?
“Two common answers come to mind. Feel free to pick either.
1) Global warming causes that
2) Its Bush’s fault”
You sir are a racist.
The HuffPo has a piece on the IPCC report praising their efforts. One of my comments was to paraphrase, “Why is climate change only affecting America?”
I was flagged.
Sounds to me like BI is behind him.
Well so far, these highly-funded recipients of grants to “study” GW have been laughing all the way to the bank ...
Its not about controlling the sun, or the earth, or the temperature.
Its about controlling the people.
How is the heat getting into the ocean?
The 'climate deniers' are scaring the heat. That's why it's hiding in the oceans, silly.
Karl Rove's weather machine.
Now that's where you'd be wrong, Mr. Smartypants!
The overwhelming consensus of scientists proves that all that extra heat from your SUV dived into the oceans, and is scared to come out because you continue to disbelieve!!!
It's people like you who are killing Mother Gaia!!!!!
No coincidence that the two biggest myths in our modern time...Man Made Global Warming, and, Free Trade....are pushed by many of the same folks...
Starting with Al Gore....
I think just heating up the top layer from air temperature and sunlight, and currents push the warm water into deeper layers. How this is actually supposed to work, since heat rises and will simply rise back up to the surface, I don't really know.
Should be easy to drop a temp gauge way down and see if its really true.
hint - its not true
Exactly...its about controlling people
Note that the Global Warming Hoaxster and Environmental folks give a pass to big polluting nations like Communist China, India, Brazil.
Someone tell these idiots that we know its a money scam a world wide money scam
“The Global Warming pseudo-scientists put it there so the skeptics couldnt find it.”
Uh-Oh ! I see MIT losing federal monies due to this !
Perhaps the classic example of the abuse and misuse of a popular information resource. That sentence is a complete lie. The IPCC is a political intergovernmental body.
Most people don't know and don't care how the IPCC came about, and have no clue of its genesis. The briefest summary is:
Maurice Strong, who created the fake world crisis, which led to the Kyoto agreements, which in turn prompted the creation of the IPCC, ridden throughout its history with shoddy "science," contradictions, frauds, scandals, and misrepresentations masquerading as science...
People should look into all the items shown in bold above as thoroughly as possible to grasp the extent of the monumental scam.
Many of the ignorant supporters of Anthropogenic Global Warming were not even born when the scam began.
Let's start with the creator, often referred to as the shadowy "George Soros of environmentalism."
The subject of this thread, Dr. Richard Lindzen was, as I recall, a lead scientist author on a chapter of a previous IPCC report, and he knows, first hand, better than anyone, the scam the political IPCC has been promoting since 1988, behind the fake façade of "science."
Duh, silly rabbits. Everybody knows that heat sinks and cold rises... duh.
Of course not.
Unicorns keep livestock at the bottom of the ocean - they put the extra heat in their underwater barns... (My story's as likely as theirs....)
