Hurrah for Aglukkaq!

Leona Aglukkaq has confirmed her heretical status with the climate catastrophists. This is what the Canadian Minister of the Environment was told by her department to say in response to the latest political statement of the IPCC:

Federal Environment Minister Leona Aglukkaq set aside a proposal from her department earlier this year to publicly state that the Harper government recognized scientific evidence that humans were “mostly responsible for climate change” and that it took this threat “seriously.”

Let’s review the facts. The global temperature (and there is severe doubt that such a statistical aggregate makes any sense) has failed to rise for 17 years. The CO2 content of the atmosphere has roared past 400 parts per million. Yet man-made CO2 is assumed to cause global warming. If atmospheric CO2 has risen as much as it has, and global mean temperatures have not, then there is a whole lot of missing heat to explain.

The promoters of  this scam are trying to persuade the more gullible that the  missing heat is somehow being hidden in deep ocean currents, despite the fact the heat rises, and cold sinks.

The disjunction between cause and effect must be alarming to the faithful, but appears not to register with them.

Once again I am appalled by the gap between what is printed in mass media (shame! horror!heresy!) and what is known to anyone following the anthropogenic global warming scam in the blogosphere.

I suspect many Canadians especially those living in Winnipeg would like some global warming. Winnipeg had its second coldest December in over 100 years. Only December 2000 was colder of the December’s since 1900. Much of Northern Europe has had a very mild December but that’s after having four back to back colder than normal wintersm

One other number that is meaningless it the “400 PPM” CO2. No one except God Himself could take enough samples in enough places to even come close to getting an accurate number. It’s not like CO2 is uniformly distributed across the globe. The CO2 levels on a LA freeway at rush hour is higher than the CO2 levels at Alert.

Actually CO2 levels outside urban areas are fairly consistent. The problem is CO2 is only one of the many contributors to climate. Sun spots, earth’s rotational axis, water vapour, ocean temperatures all have just as great an impact. Never mind SO2 has a cooling effect which is why in the 60s and 70s the earth cooled. While the West has largely eliminated SO2, China uses a lot of it (I was there recently and smog which comes from SO2 is bad) so it’s quite possible increased SO2 from The BRIC Countries is causing a lull in warming if not coolingm

Monkey you obviously live in an urban environment and likely read a few books on life outside of same without any real life experience. CO2 levels vary widely outside of the urban environment depending on the environment. Some areas are CO2 sinks with large amounts of plant growth consuming the CO2. Other areas add more CO2 to the atmosphere than is consumed. Warm oceans release CO2 whereas cooler oceans absorb CO2. etc etc etc. That being the case it is impossible to take all the atmosphere and come up with a definitive number such as 400 ppm. I know I know it is contrary to the academy to question their statements but trust me the world is not a neat little package that you can simply extrapolate X from Y. For instance did you know that no matter how good your ‘greenhouse’ is, it will still freeze if there is insufficient heat provided? IOW its the sun son.
