"Sire, I have been misunderstood.I will explain.There are two kinds of prophecy.One is the gift to foretell things that are but a little way off, the other is the gift to foretell things that are whole ages and centuries away.Which is the mightier gift, do you think?"—Hank Morgan, the Connecticut Yankee, in A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court
In Mark Twain’s classic A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court, Hank Morgan, who calls himself the Yankee of the Yankees, uses science over and over to create the illusion of magic to support the notion that he is in fact the mightiest magician of all-time. In the end, the illusion, along with misapplied technology is what does him in.
Today, global warmists use magic to create the illusion of science, misapplying technology along the way. And those illusion are killing them right now.
Yesterday I wrote about how increasingly frustrated global warming alarmists were, practically throwing tantrums as real-time data shows that global warming models do not accurately model temperatures.
Their illusions, in other words, are being increasingly shown as delusions.
The UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has recently been forced to concede that a whole raft of predictions they’ve made have been incorrect. Global temperatures have risen to only 25% as high as predicted according to the IPCC models; as recently as the late Middle Ages, the earth enjoyed a period of approximately 300 years which were as warm if not warmer than today; and the IPCC is at a loss to explain why an Arctic sea ice is accumulating rather than shrinking as they had predicted.
In Australia’s New South Wales, the state government has ordered municipal governments to ignore IPCC estimates of sea rise that when measured against historical records, have been off by as much as 90%.
Some municipalities have taken aggressive action based on the too-aggressive forecasts by the IPCC writes The Australian.
“The scientific delusion, the religion behind the climate crusade,” says Maurice Newman, a business advisor to Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott, “is crumbling. Global temperatures have gone nowhere for 17 years. Now, credible German scientists claim that ‘the global temperature will drop until 2100 to a value corresponding to the little ice age of 1870’.”
The German scientists have recently released a research that purportedly shows that temperature is determined by the solar cycles, along with Atlantic/Pacific oscillations (AMO/PDO) of 65-year time spans.
“The solar activity agrees well with the terrestrial climate,” say Prof. H. Luedecke and C.O. Weiss. “It clearly shows in particular all historic temperature minima. Thus the future temperatures can be predicted from the activities – as far as they are determined by the sun (the AMO/PDO is not determined by the sun).”
Indeed, as seen in the chart above the German scientists are predicting that global temperatures will decline for the next 80 years based on a 200-year solar cycle.
But that’s not stopping the alarmists, who continue to make prediction about the next two-hundred years even though they haven’t gotten the last two-hundred years right, yet alone the last two decades.
New models cranked out almost daily by them show that, “oh, no! global warming will be even worse in the future than we had predicted!”
One such report by the University of New South Wales and the Université Pierre et Marie Curie in Paris, alleges that warming will be twice as high as the average alarmist predicts currently.
“Climate sceptics like to criticise climate models for getting things wrong, and we are the first to admit they are not perfect, but what we are finding is that the mistakes are being made by those models which predict less warming, not those that predict more,” said Professor Sherwood, lead author of the report according to the Guardian.
That’s because as Mark Twain’s Connecticut Yankee explained to King Arthur:
"Yes, a genuine expert can always foretell a thing that is five hundred years away easier than he can a thing that's only five hundred seconds off."
It’s magic, which of course, you wouldn’t understand.
It's too mighty for you.
