Response to “Let’s Talk Climate, But Make It Quick” by Michael MacCracken and James J. McCarthy, Unedited Here, Distributed by MCT Information Services, published in the Saturday, Albuquerque Journal, 12/15/2012, A7, The article in the Albuquerque Journal was an abridged version of the above link.
I am responding to Michael MacCracken and James J. McCarthy’s article in the Albuquerque Journal, (Saturday, December 15, 2012, A7). These gentlemen have stop being “scientists” and have instead become false prophets. Yes, these two have “together spent decades studying how and why our climate is changing.” Regrettably, their computer models continue to be wrong. IPCC computer models FAR, SAR, TAR and AR4 all have failed to predict the lack of global warming in the last ten years. http://wattsupwiththat.com/2012/12/14/the-real-ipcc-ar5-draft-bombshell-plus-a-poll/ Further, the latest IPCC draft observes, ‘No significant observed trends in global tropical cyclone frequency…does not support AR4 conclusions regarding global increasing trends in droughts…low confidence regarding the sign of trend in the magnitude and/or frequency of floods on a global scale…there is currently no clear and widespread evidence for observed changes in flooding’ , http://climatedepot.com/a/18800/Prof-Pielke-Jr-Analysis-of-UN-IPCC-Draft-report—IPCC-shows-almost-complete-reversal-from-AR4-on-trends-in-drought-hurricanes-floods so the article’s comments on ‘Frankenstorm Sandy’ are also not scientific.
It is the sun that drives the weather, not carbon dioxide levels in our atmosphere. Rather than ever admit their errors, Mister MacCracken and Professor McCarthy long ago left “science” for their expensive tax-funded pagan Gaia religion homilies. They should remove their green priestly robes and return to the computer lab to fix their broken weather models.
America needs cheap, clean energy. The earth is abundant in natural resources, eager to fuel our energy driven economy. It is much easier and cheaper to clean up coal, gas, oil, hydro and nuclear energy than to be forced into the straight jacket of wind and solar “low carbon” [high cost] energy production of MacCracken and McCarthy false religious beliefs.
