Communists At Realclimate.org (fuckthedata.com) Asking the Wrong Questions.

`We’d go running in the mornings and there was always mist in the air. We were a long way above sea level and the fogginess was a ubiquitous feature of the morningtime.

When the sun did rise you would know what direction he was at. But then again you could never tell his outline. Not least until he had gotten up quite high in the sky.

But I always could smell some small amount of smoke in the air. And I wondered about it whether the mist was real mist or just trapped smoke. So I asked the locals and then not being sure they were right I’d ask them again.

They always said it was mist. And now thinking about it this was a pretty stupid attitude on my part because if it had been primarily smoke….

((((rather then as is likely just-a-little-bit-smoke-and-mostly-mist……… ))))

….If it had been substantially smoke then it would have been around in the early evening as well.

You see what made me suspicious that they might be wrong other then a burst of stupidity and just general uber-skepticism was that there was no rubbish trucks that came into this rural area.

Though this was indeed a rural area, yet the houses weren’t spaced apart very much and still there were people everywhere. People everywhere and my goodness THE WOMEN.

Anyhow there was no rubbish trucks coming round in the early mornings when I went jogging and so later on in the day the villagers would be burning all their garbage in their back yards.

But there was one truck I did see and that was the ice truck.

The ice truck would come around and deliver huge amounts of ice to the shops which were almost all houses. And to some of the houses….. many of which were shops……. or places that doubled as mini-factories.

So someone somewhere had this fucking big freezer.

Someone had a huge fucking freezer and a bunch of trucks and it saved a lot of other folks from having to buy a freezer their own selves.

I saw the odd fridge here and there for sure. And I saw these softdrink and beer display cabinets like you have in the Western World too.

But never did I see a freezer in the village. Which is not to say dudes didn’t have any since I wasn’t going house to house.

But what there tended to be was these giant ice boxes.

And it was a magnificent thing too because there was just so many cold drinks at the ready.

I was staying at one of the houses that doubled as a shop and people would come around and they would buy the ice.

If you ever want to see how valid Austrian Economics is…. and most particularly George Reismans economics……… then go to Thailand and stay with friends in one of these villages.

Because you can see these economic principles in action since the relative capital accumulation between there and Australia means they do everything quite differently.

Plus there is this other benefit of seeing some of the cutest, most gorgeous, spoilt and unspoilt, WOMEN!!!!….. you are ever going to see this side of Rio.

We must have free trade with the Thais.

We must stay friends always.

And we must help protect their sheilas from the COMMUNISTS!!!!!!
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
And that is what I’m here to complain about today people.

COMMUNISTS.

Most specifically those watermelon-commies at realclimate.org (fuckthedata.com)

http://www.realclimate.org/index.php/archives/2007/02/what-triggers-ice-ages/

Now after such pleasant memories of simple honest village folk…… 3 babes on 1 motorbike… no licenses necessary and scarcely a helmit in sight…. And one of the honies yelling out GRAEME! which may well be the only English she knew……

Now after such pleasant memories we dive into the tendentiousness of realclimate.org.

Now to be fair this is a pretty good article for these guys. You see its mostly for the bad kharma they’ve generated in the past that I abuse them so.

Not that they’ve reformed their act mind you.

I think such watered-down-“objectivity” as these ideological science-workers can muster is only there resultant from people like myself who have seen through their science-JIVE!!!!!!! and unmasked them as the leftist pretenders that they clearly are.

So it is for their own sakes that I spit on them.

Tough-Love.
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

The Poet said that “A Rose By Any Other Name Would Smell As Sweet”

But then Shakesepeare was never a Florist and if we re-branded “ROSES” as “POOPY-PANTS-PANSIES” its NO cut-and-dried matter whether sales-volumes-and-prices would thereafter live up to supplier expectations.

You would think that being righteous, rational and honest people, dedicated only to bringing more good things and LOVE to this world….

… You would think that good people wouldn’t need to be careful of their terminology. They wouldn’t need to worry about getting all the concepts and entitities properly named.

And that is the case within the mind of an individual thinker, dedicated only to spreading reason, capital goods, decency and LOVE!!!! about the place…

….Well for such a person PEDANTS are a chore and just one extra burden.

BUT WHEN IT COMES TO THE PUBLIC DEBATE GETTING THE DEFINITIONS RIGHT IS ABSOLUTELY CRITICAL.

And this is because the public debate is, or can be seen as, a marketplace of ideas. And if we don’t get the terminology right the dumb-left-wingers and bully-boy-advocates-of-the-commie-intellectual-status-quo will take hold of the language and just confuse everyone.

>>>>>>>>>>

The article is called “WHAT TRIGGERS ICE AGES?”

And they haven’t gotten out but four words in the title and already from this PEDANTS point of view they’ve fucked up in about 5 ways.

The article is by Rasmus Benestad (He’s a communist) with “contributions” from Caspar (The ghost of a communist) and Eric (pssst: take this communist out the back and shoot him.)

For starters the question: WHAT TRIGGERS ICE AGES? suggests to me that this fellow doesn’t realise that we are in an ice age now and have been in it for about 39 million years.

Furthermore as stated MANY times before we are in an ice age that has been getting more and more severe every relevant time period (lets say every 5 million years).

Whats worse then that is that in the last 3 and one half million years we have been in the most SEVERE!!!!!PHASE!!! of any ice age that the planet has seen in 300 million years at least……. and perhaps even in 500 million years.

But this is not what Rasmus means. We will get onto what Rasmus means later.

But lets just take things on a 5-MILLION-YEAR-AVERAGE-BASIS shall we.

Now my STRONG understanding (and stop me if I’m wrong) is that for 55 million years every 5-million-year-period has been on average colder then the last.

Now let me take some time to beat up on my many girlfriends……. because this is very fucking frustrating.

How is it that we can be getting colder….. in a pretty definite way…. with a clear downward trend…. all this last 55 million years………..

How can this be the case and these communists are telling us that its runaway greenhouse we have to worry about?
>>>>>>>>>>

Now we go to the last 3 and a half million years. And this is where North and South America fused.

And it was a fucked planet to live on ever since. So fucked up in fact that it forced….. through pumping-holocaust-evolution……. the happenstance of intelligent life on earth.
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

So to answer Raggamuffins question LITERALLY:

I would say that Ice Ages are caused by a three-way deal between:

1. The average strength of the suns output.

2. Continental layout….. and:

3. The level of stored heat radiating up from the Earths Core.

BUT THIS IS NOT WHAT RASMUSSEN IS TALKING ABOUT!!!!!
>>>>>>>>>>

You see.

We have been in an ice age for 39 million years.

But these communists, for tendentious and hateful reasons, have changed the meaning of the phrase. They’ve taken the colloquial meaning and turned it into the “scientific” meaning in order to pull the wool over your eyes.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Now how about his ACTUAL rather then his LITERAL enquiry?

“WHAT TRIGGERS ICE AGES?”

You see he means WHAT TRIGGERS GLACIATIONS. Because within ICE AGES we have these glacial periods and we have these interglacials.

By the way these periods are unforgiveably sloppily defined in terms of their definition.

HOW LONG HAVE WE BEEN IN AN INTERGLACIAL PERIOD?

Well thanks to the definitional sloppiness of the science-workers we don’t have a clear idea of this.

We ought to bite the bullet and come up with a clear definition.

May I propose one?

Since our Canadian friends did not show up to target practise and thereby (along with the New Zealanders) let the team down I propose that we don’t recognise a glaciation until the Canadian border is coverered with ice.

But the problem is that while I may be clear and careful with definitions the fact that others aren’t makes it hard to figure out what people mean when they say stuff and that set of circumstances is just a playground for the watermelon-communists.

>>>>>>>>>>>

Having said this, however, I can be quite sure, on a conservative basis, that the last 3 and a half million years has seen us for at least 3 million of these years IN A FUCKING FREEZER.
>>>>>>>>>>>>

Now do you see part of the problem with this question?

“What triggers ice ages?” is FUNDAMENTALLY THE WRONG QUESTION.

Raggamuffin means “WHAT TRIGGERS GLACIAL PERIODS?”

But even more soundly formulated there is still something wrong with this question. CAN YOU SEE IT?
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

What is wrong with it is that…….

…… GLACIATION IS THE NORM!!!!!!! AND WE MIGHT MORE CORRECTLY TRY AND FIND OUT HOW IT IS WE CAN STAY IN THIS INTERGLACIAL AGAINST THE NATURAL PLANETARY BIAS.
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Now having said this Ragamuffins query is not without meaning.

What series of events will occur before next we are plunged into catastrophic cooling?

(OR CATASTROPHIC-“WARMING”……….. IF WE WANT TO SAIL RIGHT OFF INTO FUCKING FANTASY-LAND WITH ELVIS TO THE RIGHT OF ME AND MARY MOTHER-OF-JESUS FIXING UP SOME VITTELS FOR YOU IN YOUR KITCHEN)

We will resolve the science of this by looking at ROGERS’-HEAT-CONTENT-CYCLE.

By analysing whats going on in Rogers-oceanic-imbedded heat-content cycle we will find the obvious potential for a drastic fall in this heat-content, which depending on the context, could lead us into the tyrrany of the moving wall of white death.

A disaster so vicious it would resemble an endless Trench-Warfare, eating away at humanity, not for 5 years but for 50 000.

Roger is of course the climate scientist Roger Pielke senior. And don’t discriminate against him due to the shabby state of his proffesion because he is a true gentleman, an authentic SCIENTIST.

You know…..

A SCIENTIST!!!-Scientist and not just a run of the mill science-worker.

As I described him before… “He is a fallen angel in an ocean of unrisen apes.”

Now as we’ve discussed in the past:

The oceans hold far more then 1000 times the energy of the atmosphere. This combined with the fact that it is the atmosphere that sits above the oceans and not the other way around….

……. these two realities taken together mean that if we want to follow CUMULATIVE warming or heating trends it is not the (!@#$%^&;*) air temperatures that we are after. Rather we want to find a pattern, or a trend in what is happening with oceanic heat-energy content.

That is to say with “ROGERS-CURVE.”

Now because I’m an unreconstructured Luddite I should like you to go through the now familiar practise of setting up two browsers. Make the left one skinny and thats for my commentary. And make the right one such that you have ROGERS-CURVE in front of you.

  1. I think if you did a search and replace on your text and replaced the word “then” with the word “than” you would have in total less errors than you do now.

    Think about it.

  2. graeme
    maybe you should just adopt the default rule of using THAN over THEN all the time. the error rate will also be lower that way.

  3. Right.

    I’ll try that. And you tell me when this blanket rule lets me down.

  4. Is this a Kiwi thing. Are you typing phonetically?

  5. Edney
    Have you found that evidence for catastrophic warming yet for my cozzie bro, Useful Idiot?

  6. Very nice site!
