'Elites' Flock to Google Summit in 114 Private Jets, Mega Yachts to Talk Climate Change

They are gathering to strategize on how to limit the rights of ordinary people to use fossil fuels to better their lives.  Make sure you carve out exceptions for the elite.  Their meetings, their travel, their mansions and their AC are a little more important than yours.

I certainly can see how the likes of Kate Perry who has sung stolen songs and claims she writes them
has the merits to help change the Earth's weather

she must be someone's girl friend

maybe Eric Schmidt who probably goes there though retired

Pathological Science - "Global Temperature"
« Reply #1002 on: August 20, 2019, 09:13:04 AM »

"while it is possible to treat temperature statistically locally, it is meaningless to talk about a a global temperature for Earth. The Globe consists of a huge number of components which one cannot just add up and average. That would correspond to calculating the average phone number in the phone book. ...  it does make sense to compare the currency exchange rate of two countries, whereas there is no point in talking about an average 'global exchange rate'."
A few years after the University of Copenhagen report was published, University of Guelph economist Ross McKitrick, one of the report’s authors, noted in another paper that “number of weather stations providing data . . . plunged in 1990 and again in 2005. The sample size has fallen by over 75% from its peak in the early 1970s, and is now smaller than at any time since 1919.”

Not to mention biased adjustments to measured data...

Michael Mann forfeits his case, won't release his pathological data adjustments
« Reply #1003 on: August 27, 2019, 06:42:46 AM »
British Columbia Supreme Courts ruled against the climate fraud Michael Mann and ordered him to pay his opponent's court costs.  The 30 day clock to appeal this ruling is ticking.

At issue, Dr. Tim Ball has said that "Michael Mann should be in the state pen not at Penn State", meaning the hockey stick graph is a fraud.  Mann sued for libel.  Ball asserted the truth defense.  Mann refused to release the data behind his work, Mann's R2 regression numbers, that either support the hockey stick graph or the fraud characterization.  Had Mann released the source data, it would be game over for the alarmism industry.  As one analyst put it, you can put baseball scores into Mann's climate model and get the hockey stick graph.

Two graphs, which one is right?
Mann's original paper:

Amazon fire greatly exaggerated

From looking at all the close ups of the forest that burning one would think the entire northern half of S America is going up in flames.

More fake news.

due in part to deforestation

Well, global warming killed us all off around 2000, so we are ok.

Europe doing great in reducing deforestation
« Reply #1007 on: August 30, 2019, 04:54:34 PM »

or not doing great?:

Boomer news says no:

This is a perfect example of the total bullshit in the news about climate "change"
you can't believe anything

Europe tells Brazil it should stop the deforestation while they do it unmercifully.

Ship with Climate Change Warriors caught in ice, Warriors evacuated
September 4, 2019
"Arctic tours ship MS MALMO with 16 passengers on board got stuck in ice on Sep 3 off Longyearbyen, Svalbard Archipelago, halfway between Norway and North Pole. The ship is on Arctic tour with Climate Change documentary film team, and tourists, concerned with Climate Change and melting Arctic ice. All 16 Climate Change warriors were evacuated by helicopter in challenging conditions, all are safe. 7 crew remains on board, waiting for Coast Guard ship assistance.
Something is very wrong with Arctic ice, instead of melting as ordered by UN/IPCC, it captured the ship with Climate Change Warriors."

Fossil fuel powered ship rescued with fossil fuel powered aircraft.  'nuff said.
