Thankfully, the anti-science propaganda campaign surrounding man-made climate change seems to have lost some of its effect.

Are you seeing storm clouds on the horizon? Two recent studies suggest that the latest anti-science campaign is following its forerunners--the propaganda campaigns attempting to refute science that tobacco causes cancer, that CFC's caused the hole in the ozone layer, and so on—into oblivion. Global warming denial seems to have climbed to a peak in 2010, and global warming acceptance is now climbing. This bodes well for rational public policy.

Are all those words yours, or are you again misleading us, or do you not understand attribution, or are your ashamed of your sources?

This does all rather invite the question: if the climate establishment is really so sure of the solidity of the science underpinning its doomsday predictions, how come it needs to adopt such desperate, unethical and unscientific methods to shut out dissenting voices?

The Bengtsson scandal comes at the end of an exceedingly bad week for the cause of climate alarmism. In other news, still further scorn has been poured on the methodology of the Cook et al paper on the “97 per cent consensus

The reason, quite simply, is that it shows the climate change establishment in such an appalling light. These people have long traded on the public’s acceptance that they are the “experts”, the guys we can trust. Yet here they are shown behaving not like loftily-minded seekers-after-truth but simple playground bullies. One German physicist is said hysterically to have compared Bengtsson’s decision to join the Global Warming Policy Foundation (a politically neutral think tank) to joining the Ku Klux Klan. Another warmist scientist – an American one this time – petulantly refused to be named as co-author on any of Bengtsson’s papers, a form of professional assassination.

Finally, it seems, the MSM is beginning to wake up to something it really ought to have picked up on long ago: the greatest and most expensive scientific scandal in history, in which a cabal of lavishly grant-funded, activist-scientists from Britain to Australia, Germany to the US, has exaggerated the evidence for “man-made global warming” and attempted ruthlessly to suppress the work of sceptical scientists who dispute the “consensus.”

Professor Bengtsson’s McCarthyite purging may one day come to be seen as the climate alarmists’ “Bridge Too Far” moment. As Judith Curry, climatologist and chair of the School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at the Georgia Institute of Technology, has argued, “It has the potential to do as much harm to climate science as did the Climategate emails.”

In truth, to anyone familiar with the Climategate emails there will be nothing surprising or unusual in this incident or this claim. As the emails leaked in 2009 made abundantly clear, the organised suppression of sceptical papers in learned journals by the alarmist establishment has long been rife within the field of climate science.

What’s more significant is that this story has made it to the front page of the Times. Like most of the mainstream media, the Times has been remarkably slow to latch onto the corruption, malfeasance, waste, dishonesty, bullying and lies which are rife throughout the climate change industry. If it hadn’t been for the internet and sites like Watts Up With That? and blogposts like this one the Climategate scandal would have passed almost without notice.

One of the peer-reviewers reportedly wrote:

‘It is harmful as it opens the door for oversimplified claims of “errors” and worse from the climate sceptics media side.’

This, Prof Bengtsson told the Times, was “utterly unacceptable” and “an indication of how science is gradually being influenced by political views.”

He added:

‘The problem we now have in the climate community is that some scientists are mixing up their scientific role with that of a climate activist.’

CLIMATE MCCARTHYISM: THE SCANDAL GROWS

Liberals lying to preserve their religion of radical environmentalism!?? Say it ain’t so…

At this point we may wonder how could organizations studying global warming miss data like this? How could Al Gore win the Nobel Peace Prize for his film? How can the IPCC continue to push global warming if this data explains everything? The reality is that most of what is presented from those sources is more political than it is anything else. The science that they use to draw claims relies on a belief that substantial global warming is critically dependent on the assumption that the climate system never changes by itself naturally. This, as we know from the Vostok data, is false. Drawing this conclusion negates what the IPCC and Al Gore claim regarding global warming, CO2 being the cause and that humans are responsible.

420,000 Years of Data Suggests Global Warming is Not Man-Made

Excellent article.

"This is a very important paper because it constitutes the first direct experimental refutation of the theory that increased atmospheric CO2 from industrial activity is the cause of increased global average temperatures."

Exactly. 1000's of papers have been published, yet only this one directly experimentally refutes the conclusion that CO2 causes climate change.

Thank you for supporting the scientific consensus, Tiredofit. Let's see if this outlier paper stands up to peer review.

Reference Humlum, Ole, Stordahl, Kjell, Solheim, Jan-Erik, The phase relation between atmospheric carbon dioxide and global temperature, Global and Planetary Change (2012), doi: 10.1016/j.gloplacha.2012.08.008

This idea that variations in climate can be explained in terms of ocean instabilities is not new. The effects of the ocean instability in the Equatorial Pacific, El Niño, have been known for some time. The idea that other random or quasi-periodic variations in ocean circulation exist and have similar climatic consequences is a reasonable assumption.

The alarmist view that observations of the steadily increasing atmospheric CO2 concentrations of the 20th century are due entirely to industrialization is not supported by the analysis of Humlum et al. Instead it seems more likely that it is due to the upwelling of deep ocean water masses. This may be questioned by oceanographers since there is no smoking gun. However degassing of CO2 by upwelling water is impossible to measure because of the abundance of respiring plankton in such places. Oceanographers naively assume that the oceans are always in steady state and completely ignore major forcing due to hydrothermal vents and submarine volcanoes.

Explanation (b) fits the one year lag of the Humlum et al observations and also explains the multi-century lag which occurs when the earth was warmed during ice-age terminations. The different time lags are explicable in terms of the different water masses being warmed or cooled. Short term variations only affect the mixed layer, the upper 100m or so of the ocean, whereas long term changes affect the deep ocean. The circulation of deep ocean currents takes centuries. When an opened can of soft drink warms up when it is removed from the refrigerator it loses its CO2 bubbles at a faster rate. When the earth comes out of an ice age and the deep ocean warms up, it also loses its dissolved CO2 at a faster rate.
