Climate models

Computer models are something magical. As powerful computers, located at famous universities and authoritative government agencies are involved, model output is often considered to be a substitute for reality.

But it's not.

A computer model is nothing more than a simulation of reality. No mater how powerful the computer, model accuracy depends on the rules that define it. If one of the model rules states "1+1=3", the model output will always be wrong, even if you run it on the fastest supercomputer available.

Climate "science" heavily depends on models. There are thousands of climate computer models trying to predict the climate for the coming decades and even centuries. All IPCC-reports are based on these models and governments implement the policy recommendations included in those IPCC-reports.
Obviously without even checking if the models are right, because if they would do so, any rational person would give it a second thought.

In the above graphic we see the global temperature forecasts of 32 different climate models used by the IPCC. The first thing that draws the attention is the huge difference between the models.

There's only one reality, so only one can be right and all the other models must be wrong!

In any normal scientific process, this would automatically disqualify any conclusion based of this data, but in climate "science", the "solution" is to use the average of the wrong models. No, I don't make this up, that's how it works and yes, they call it "science."

The thick red line in the graphic shows the average of 102 wrong models used in the IPCC reports.

The second obvious shortcoming of these models is the fact that they don't predict the real-world measurements. And they're not off by 5% or 10%... The average model predicts the global temperature anomaly over the 40-year period from 1977 to 2017 to be three times as high as the measured anomaly.

In any other scientific discipline, models with this kind of deviation would directly be discarded as worthless and useless. But in the case of climate "science" the models can't even be questioned. And if you do, you'll be called a "climate denier".

Even this abysmal, 200% deviation from reality does not stop governments from all over the world to use these models and the IPCC-recommendations based on them for their long-term energy policies, legislation and projects.


Back to the models

When model output does not match real-world measurements, one or more of the rules that define the simulation must be wrong. We should isolate the problem in order to fix it.

Luckily, among the climate models there's one positive exception. The Russian Imncm4 model does track the real-world measurement quite well. The difference with all other climate models is that the Imncm4 model definition recognizes CO2 only as a very small factor when it comes to modelling the climate. It's the model that uses the smallest CO2-forcing of them all.

Imncm4 is the "climate denier" under the climate models. But it's the one that closest matches reality.

It seems quite obvious that CO2 is not the main climate "control knob". Models that are based on the CO2-hypothesis all predict way too much warming, while the only model that uses a small CO2-forcing matches real-world measurements much better.

I think the time has come to start an independent investigation, using traditional scientific methods, about this issue.

Why did the warming stop?

The political reports of the IPCC are based on the hypothesis that CO2 is the most important control knob of the Earth's temperature. The problem is that this hypothesis does not correspond at all with the empirical data available to science. Forecasts are made using models that are not capable of 'predicting' the past.

Temperature versus CO2 – the big picture

When discussing “Climate Change” it’s good to have an understanding of how the Earth’s climate has changed in the past. That will give us a reference in order to decide of the current changes are normal or not.

Global temperatures have varied a lot over the last 500 million years. Depending on the timescale used, the current temperature is either cold or hot, so when you want to know the “normal temperature” you’ll have to indicate what timescale you’re using.

The "Green Lungs of the Earth" Myth

This must be the environmental myth with the deepest roots of them all (pun intended). It's compulsory subject matter in public schools around the globe, it's passed from generation to generation and if you dare to question it in public, disbelieve, rejection, jeering and even exclusion from the conversation will be your treat. That's the typical way people react when their beliefs and primary "knowledge" are challenged.

The myth:

Woods, forests and jungles are Earth's "Green Lungs" that generate and produce the oxygen we need to breath and live.

Glacier Logic

Last month, the New York Times website published a page titled "Glaciers Are Retreating. Millions Rely on Their Water." It shows a dramatic image, zooming out of a person walking down a dry glacier bed with the following text:

"In Central Asia, a warming climate is shrinking the Tuyuksu glacier. It’s losing ice every year.

Around the world, vanishing glaciers will mean less water for people and crops in the future."

450 non-warming graphs and papers

Notrickszone presents a collection of 450 peer-reviewed scientific papers that question Global Warming Part 1 / Part 2. The collection contains a representative graphic from each paper. For some of the papers, a short excerpt of the conclusions is added.

Most of the papers have been written after the year 2000. They contain studies from the whole Holocene interglacial, but most of the work concentrates on the last 2,000 years.

Failed predictions

Since the start of the Global Warming scare numerous predictions have been made about all kind of things related to the climate. As this scam is going on for over 30 years now some of those predictions have reached their due date and the time has come to check the results.

Sustainable - Contamination

You can't make this up


Firewood is considered "biomass", and politicians seem to believe that the CO2 produced by burning biomass is different from CO2 produced by burning fossil fuels. They also believe CO2 is a dangerous contaminant.

So, according to the UN, the IPCC and your national government (depending on where you live), firewood cooking is considered "sustainable", while cooking with natural gas is "contamination".
