Global Warming

Has Earth Climate Warming Trend Stopped?

Global warming stopped or paused - that is the question. ...even after GISS Nasa updated its GISTEMP files. I just plotted a graph for the past 10 years global surface stations, with monthly resolution, by means of the GISTEMP file: http://climatepatr ol.wordpress.com/2 008/01/11/global-w arming-stopped-or- paused/. 2007 appears to be the second warmest year on record (together with 1998), 2008 will be cooler according to the Met Office Hardley.  (Jan 11, 2008 | post #364)

Scientific consensus: humans cause globe warming?

Hi JRS. Thanks for vising my site and for your encouragment. I just found the site about avarage cloud formation. It seems that after the sun output has reached the max, the cloud formation, most particularly lower clouds went down. Could this be because of more cosmic rays? Svensmarck again? Whatever the case, I am prepared for a long, cold winter this time. The mountains in Southern Italy have just had a blizzard, as reported in the news today...In fact there would be so much to write and talk about...You are right, it is excited.  (Oct 22, 2007 | post #58)

Swiss nationalists seek election surge

You have to understand the Swiss. The history of Switzerland started with a bunch of naysayers who stood together in a brotherhood of oath that they will always help each other out against any oppression from Habsburg. www.swissreviews.b logspot.com  (Oct 20, 2007 | post #1)

Global Warming

Scientific consensus: humans cause globe warming?

It is time I stop my paranoia with you:-). You have a good heart. I was just referring to the two split-off groups from the seame organization. You make a very honest ample statement regarding political opinionating that speaks to my heart. In Wikipedia, it said that the U.S. Republicans stifled reporting of scientific progress, using the word climate change. But I just discovered myself that the mentioning of the word "climate change" in scientific paper abstracts has become important in order to receive public funding, thus the suspicion of the Republicans. That's why I don't blame them for that. People like you and me who seek the entire truth maybe have a hard time to find an audience. In my attempt to be as balanced and accurate as possible in my reporting in my blog http://climatepatr ol.blogspot.com, I am not sexy but - I guess - rather boring. But one thing I found out in my research: One particular example can be found here. In this exemple "there was consensus" assumeing that a warmer world will bring more temperature variability with more severe storms, etc. etc. The Swiss survey demonstrated just the opposite: http://climatepatr ol.blogspot.com/20 07/10/new-evidence -on-future-climate .html Since their findings did not confirm what they were looking for to support the accuracy of climate models, what they did was to try to find an explanation - a guessing game - in order not to challenge the consensus position on global warming. It is very subtle, I know. But your statement is so precious. Would you mind me to quote you on what you said? It is quite important to the Swiss. Liberals in Switzerland are not left, just to give you an example of how important it is to tell the Swiss audience what is going on in the U.S. in particular, and in the media in general. I couldn't say it better than you.  (Oct 19, 2007 | post #47)

Swiss Parliament takes aim at immigrants

Small is beautiful. Xenophobia towards "Big" is a side affect. Little dog Switzerland barks, big dog U.S. bites. None of them is better than the other. The target of the black sheep poster has absolutely nothing to do with US or Canadian citizens in Switzerland. Xenophobia towards the American subcontinent rather comes from the left wing, from those who hate the U.S. because of the Republicans et al... www.swissreviews.b logspot.com  (Oct 19, 2007 | post #11)

Thanks for the link. You are referring to an article released by "Citizens for a Sound Economy Foundation". Are you an "American for Prosperity" or a "Freedom Works"er?:-). Can you make a statment regarding the following Widipedia review: On July 23, 2006 the Washington Post reported on the organization's tactics in signing up as members people who did not even know about the organization, by enrolling them as members during unrelated transactions in order to boost membership numbers. The group obtained over $638,000 and about 16,000 members through the sale of insurance policies in this way.[1]  (Oct 18, 2007 | post #34)

Scientific consensus: humans cause globe warming?

Okay. I am a sceptic. I don't trust anybody who does something for money, weather it be government funding or private funding. Heck, here in Switzerland many people believe that all scientists who are dependant on private funding are somehow hooked up with the oil industry, and thus their science is wrong. But if it is public funding (GISS NASA, MET Office, IPCC, it is immaculate science. I am sick and tired of it. That's why I am here:-). Because I don't trust blindly what comes from the IPCC, I did some research and posted the summary here: http://climatepatr ol.blogspot.com/20 07/09/consensus-an d-sea-ice-record-t andem.html . You see, I am a sceptic who accepts a certain consensus;-)  (Oct 17, 2007 | post #24)

Gore, U.N. Body Win Nobel Peace Prize

Okay. I try to answer your question in the context that everybody in the forum can see. If the newer sample of the dataset of peer reviewed paper containing "climate change" indeed challenges a particular consensus position on climate change, then it is indeed a very significant number IF the media say that the science is settled on THIS particular matter. Anyway, that's only a tiny bit of the story, right?  (Oct 16, 2007 | post #1528)

6%, a significant number? Excuse me, are you trying to pull me a leg? Could you be a bit more precise in your question? What are you up to?  (Oct 16, 2007 | post #1523)
