If you don't know who is in charge of the World inviromental Watchdog,it's none other then Gorbachev,the ex leader of the USSR,and once big dog of the KGB.He was,and probably still is a "COMMUNIST".This position has given him the tools to finally destroy his arch enemy "CAPITALISM...It appears to me we,the United States seems to be the main target of the inviromentals attacks.And this bunch has done some serious damage to our industries,so now they are going to put a "carbon"tax on us individuals....Wouldn't be surprised if we don't all will lbe required to wear a devise that measures the Co2 we exhaul after each breath we all take.OPPS!,I might have given the Leftist Inviromentalist an idea!!!!.....
Na,I'm sure they have some Lefties looking into it....After all this whole "GLOBAL WARMING"is a H O A X!,much like Obama and Algore are!...

Frankly, what his work demonstrates is that there is a robust relationship between GHG levels and global temperatures, where he couldn't go TOO far wrong with just rough data.

In his time there was no "aerosols" to worry about and the 'broadening of the bands' for CO2 was not known. Nor is his 'match' to present warming correct in that our rate of warming is slower (matching his erroneous values) while his 'equilibrium' warming is and was wrong.

Science has progressed and the so called 'correctness' of his calculations is more of a 'beginners luck' than accurate. A competent scientists but without all the data.

These are some of the major avenues laid out by science since Callendar's work. Science builds solid infrastructures in our understanding. How do we know for example about the layers of our atmosphere?
You really have a comprehension problem...

"Callender’s calculations track much more closely with actual temperatures than the formulas that are used by alarmists today."

Duh.

If you can't get a clue, borrow one. You're embarrassing yourself.

Aww you are 1000 SBL units.

Try to comprehend this in support of what I posted:

Here, we present evidence that a human-caused signal can also be identified relative to the larger "total" natural variability arising from sources internal to the climate system, solar irradiance changes, and volcanic forcing. Consistent signal identification occurs because both internal and total natural variability (as simulated by state-of-the-art models) cannot produce sustained global-scale tropospheric warming and stratospheric cooling. Our results provide clear evidence for a discernible human influence on the thermal structure of the atmosphere.

Can we take it that you're accepting what Callendar said, the world has warmed and we're responsible, and warming will continue?

LOL. First you misread the graph and prove yourself a clown, and then you demand a serious discussion about what the graph shows.
Look, either the insurance company added new data to their database so the numbers changed, or they are in the conspiracy with the climate scientists.
Which one is easier to believe?
Pivot again with you. If you say I misread the chart, then you need to explain what the chart is saying. You can do this by answering the questions I posted.

1. So do you really believe that Munich RE a re-insurer who tracks natural disasters around the world (to include storms, hurricanes, tornados, forest fires, droughts floods, and extreme temperatures) only tracked 14 natural disasters worldwide in 1993? If you believe that, then Munich Re is saying there were only 3 natural disasters worldwide in 2009. Do you also believe that to be true?

2. If each bar represents a total count for worldwide disasters in a single year, how does the count change for that single year whether the chart starts at 1950 or starts in 1980?

3. According to caveman:“How the bars could change using different numbers of years or time periods is exemplified by Hurricane Camille was once number one before 2005. It became #2 following Katrina. Extend the chart to 2012 and you pick up Sandy, which is now #1 (I think), making the other two fade back. As the years go on and the storms get stronger, Camille may drop off the chart at some distant date.”

Can you even explain how a hurricane that was counted in the natural disasters in 2005 would fade back and drop off the chart? Why would a hurricane that was counted in 2005 be dropped off the count of natural disasters in 2005?

If I'm misreading the chart then it should be really easy for you to answer the questions, especially the first question. If you won't answer the questions, then it is safe to say you are misreading the chart.
