The Real Climate Deniers (Plus A Prediction On Berkeley Earth Surface Temperature’s Results)

For as long as predictions will be difficult, especially about the future, “denialism” will as a matter of course remain appropriate only in the context of past facts, i.e. in the “denial” that they actually occurred.

So let’s set aside the widespread, idiotic name-calling against anybody having any question regarding impending climate catastrophes: because the real Climate Deniers are very easy to spot.

And it’s the people that to this day still live in the fantasy world where Climategate was a non-event and had no consequence (esp. on the science of climate change). You know, the people that haven’t read Andrew Montford‘s GWPF report, or the findings of the Muir Russell review, or Lord Oxburgh’s comments about reconstructing temperature trends for the past 1,000 years (Q36 in the link) (or, erm…my preface to the Italian translation of Montford’s report).

Or they have read the lot, but due to their denialist attitude they can’t fathom the meaning of what’s written in there.

Everybody else might have instead noticed by now that a major. widely-funded, “independent, replicable, inclusive, transparent…approach [to] estimate…global temperature change” (and “the uncertainties in the record“) is expected to come to fruition sometimes next year. And yes, Climategate had an important role in getting Berkeley Earth Surface Temperature (BEST) up-and-running.

QED…all those labelling of non-believers as “deniers” has simply been a kind of preventative attack. And finally, it has backfired.

ps my predictions on the BEST results:

  • According to the Berkeley group, the Earth’s surface temperature will have risen (on average) slightly less than what indicated by NASA, NOAA and the Met Office
  • Differences will be on the edge of statistical significance, leaving a lot open to subjective interpretation
  • Several attempts will be made by climate change conformists and True Believers to smear the work of BEST, and to prevent them from publishing their data
  • After publication, organised  groups of people will try to cloud the issue to the point of leaving the public unsure about what exactly was found by BEST
  • New questions will be raised regarding UHI, however the next IPCC assessment’s first draft will be singularly forgetful of any peer-reviewed paper on the topic
  • We will all be left with a slightly-warming world, the only other certitude being that all mitigation efforts will be among the stupidest ideas that ever spung to human mind.

    Packing the constant climatic changes in the same sentence with the phony GLOBAL warming; is not helpful for getting the truth to the public. Climatic changes are a natural phenomena; GLOBAL warming is a phenomenal lie: http://globalwarmingdenier.wordpress.com .

    Mandas – I’m impressed. All we have is four unpublished papers, and a media blitz, but you already know how things will turn out to be at the end. Please pass some lottery predictions will you.

      They can predict that one correctly – because they are creating the lies. Same as Arsonist predicting correct time, when your house will be on fire.

    Sooooooooo, let’s just review these predictions and your position on the issue:

    “….According to the Berkeley group, the Earth’s surface temperature will have risen (on average) slightly less than what indicated by NASA, NOAA and the Met Office….”

    Wrong!

    “…..Differences will be on the edge of statistical significance, leaving a lot open to subjective interpretation…”

    Wrong!

    “….Several attempts will be made by climate change conformists and True Believers to smear the work of BEST, and to prevent them from publishing their data….”

    Correct! Denialists all over the world are attempting to smear the results of BEST, including – and this is the hilarious part – people like Anthony Watts who faithfully promised to accept the results, even if they went against him. I wonder how that is going with Anthony now?

    “….After publication, organised groups of people will try to cloud the issue to the point of leaving the public unsure about what exactly was found by BEST…”

    Correct! Denialist organisations all over the world are now claiming that they never said the world wasn’t warming, just questioning the cause. Yeah right – and if you believe that I have a bridge to sell you.

    “…New questions will be raised regarding UHI, however the next IPCC assessment’s first draft will be singularly forgetful of any peer-reviewed paper on the topic…’

    Wrong! UHI has been put to bed once and for all. The evidence is in. Climate scientists knew what they were doing all along, and BEST confirms this.

    “….We will all be left with a slightly-warming world, the only other certitude being that all mitigation efforts will be among the stupidest ideas that ever spung to human mind…”

    Wrong! BEST confirms what climate scientists have been saying all along. And given that the evidence keeps piling up regarding the harmful effects of cllimate change, anyone who thinks that mitigation efforts are stupid have got their ideology mixed up with facts.

    So not going too well are you? But here’s my prediction. You will obfuscate, lie, twist the truth, and refuse to accept the overwhelming evidence that has been there all along, and which BEST simply confirms. I think that’s why they call people like you a denier. You deny the evidence. You deny logic and reason. And you even deny your own words – or are you going to demonstrate a modicum of integrity that has eluded you so far and admit you were wrong?
