Met Office claims to have found the AGW fingerprint

The Reference Frame
Friday, March 5, 2010

The Guardian just published a report about a text published by the Met Office:

Met Office analysis reveals ‘clear fingerprints’ of man-made climate change

In fact, there are two articles in the Guardian that “know” in advance that the Met Office will “strengthen” the case for human-induced climate change: the witches and prophets told them. The second article has a title that unmasks what is the real motivation behind the Met Office report:

How public trust in climate scientists can be restored

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, exactly 100 days after the AGW alarmism largely collapsed, the Met Office just found the fingerprints of Man imprinted everywhere in the climate. Because there hadn’t been any fingerprints before the paper, we must ask: How did they realize this ambitious goal? ;-)

We learn that they didn’t even need a single research paper to do so. One review was enough! :-)

Well, it’s somewhat harder to find what the “holy grail” or “fingerprint” actually is. The Guardian article seems to be nothing else than another dose of the nonsense saying that everything about the climate is getting worse – and it must therefore be due to Man who is the only source of sins in the world. Amen. You can’t even find the actual paper – which is claimed to be a review paper summarizing 100 other papers. Even when you look at the Met Office website, there only seems to be a press release with a couple of big mouths who claim to suddenly know everything. Doesn’t sound too good.

Met Office claims to have found the AGW fingerprint  fingerprintThere really doesn’t seem to be a single glimpse of a man-made fingerprint in the first Guardian article. They just say many wrong things about particular regional questions. For example, wet places are getting wetter and dry places are getting drier, we learn. That’s a pretty bizarre statement given the recent observations that Sahara is greening.

But even if the statement about the escalating droughts were true – and probably none of their statements about the regional weather is true – how could it reveal a fingerprint of the Man? It self-evidently makes no sense whatsoever. The human fingerprint would have to look like something specifically human, e.g. the picture on the left.

This is true about all other statements in the article. None of them shows anything like a man-made fingerprint. And many of them actually show a disagreement with the man-made fingerprint. Look e.g. at this basic map of the 1970-2004 temperature change across the globe which they also included:

Met Office claims to have found the AGW fingerprint  Climate460

Does it reveal a man-made fingerprint? Well, we must know how the man-made fingerprint looks like. If the warming were due to the enhanced greenhouse effect, it would have to be global, i.e. uniform over the globe. In particular, it should have the same values in the Northern and Southern hemispheres because the concentrations of CO2 become rapidly uniform by diffusion.

At most, you could see some enhanced feedbacks in the polar regions but they should be North-South symmetric.

Instead, what the graph above shows is a warm fingerprint in Alaska. It could have been caused by the warm hand of Sarah Palin. But in that case, it would be a woman-made fingerprint, not a man-made fingerprint. We see some warming in much of the Northern Hemisphere, and cooling in southern parts of the Southern Hemisphere (much of the blue/green region conveniently has “insufficient data”). The North-South asymmetry represents a big disagreement with the “greenhouse fingerprint”. And of course, many more detailed disagreements of this kind – when the dependence on the altitude is considered – are known. The greenhouse theory just doesn’t seem to work as an explanation of any of the “details”.

But even if you were hiding the North vs South problem above, how could the map above be considered a “man-made fingerprint”? A more sensible interpretation of the map is that the temperature in different regions is changing somewhat independently, randomly, and the regions which were warming from 1978 to 2004 just seem to be somewhat larger than the regions that were cooling. But that’s not too shocking. After all, there are no quotas in Nature that would guarantee that 50% of the globe must be cooling at every moment. Random numbers don’t work like that. And moreover, Nature is not quite random.

They try to criticize the Sun as a driver of climate change (they must really hate this star which gives us pretty much all the energy) – but there are lots of other obviously important causes of climate change that they’re trying to hide. It’s clear that much of the climate change results from regional changes, modified patterns of the ocean and atmospheric circulations at various spots. They not only failed to rule out them as an explanation: it’s impossible to rule them out because they surely do play some role. And there’s no reason why the “overall” effect of the changes to the oceans should be constant time time. We know it’s not.

For example, a very recently discussed paper by German and Russian climatologists claims that it’s normal for the climate to oscillate in the observed way at this place of the glaciation cycle, before a new ice age arrives: Register, paper.

One more comment about the format. It’s supposed to be a review paper. But such things are just a matter or propaganda, education, or presentation. They don’t actually bring the original evidence in favor or against various theories. If there had been no convincing “fingerprint” found in the expert literature before 2009, one cannot find it in review papers, either. The only reason why someone would prefer to “support” a hypothesis by a review paper citing 100 other random papers is that none of the 100 papers can actually settle the question. None of them really bring any convincing evidence that could be shown to others – so the author of the review just wants to impress some people by the quantity instead of the quality.

But for scientific arguments, it is always just the quality that matters. 100 lousy arguments and vague proclamations that someone like AGW are just not enough to beat 1 solid argument in real science. It’s not shocking that 100 papers trying to support AGW have been written – the AGW research industry has swallowed tens of billions of dollars and you can surely hire typists who can write millions of pages of text for the money. However, this extensive and expensive activity hasn’t produced any evidence supporting AGW – much like the millions of monkeys who almost never write Shakespeare’s plays. The main reason is that what they’re trying to prove for the money is not true.

The funding for climate science has increased by a factor of 10 in the last 15 years or so – so you can also say that only 10% of the funding is for the legitimate old-fashioned climate science and 90% of the money they’re getting today are bribes for them to get AGW-alarming results. The whole field is completely corrupt but being completely corrupt is not a sufficient condition for being able to produce the actual scientific evidence.

So the work of the Met Office is just about propaganda. It’s not science. It’s about their attempts to intimidate people by suggesting that there are hundreds of people who may disagree with you if you disagree with AGW. But none of them actually has any argument that would be ready for a detailed promotion in isolation. It’s only the quantity, the brute force of the people who have a vested interest for the panic to continue.

That’s not how science can be done. I think that the British should abolish the existing Met Office and start from the scratch because the institution has been so brutally contaminated that it is no longer useful for the society. It is not useful for the climate projections but it is not useful for the weather forecast, either. In fact, it may be more harmful than useful.

And that’s the memo.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's all happening now big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale". This site must be on some list at GCHQ/NSA as my AdSense revenue which I rely on has gone down by a third. Either people are not helping out by visiting sponsors sanymore or I am being blackballed like many YouTube sites.

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally I know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know some people in prison now for the content they had on their "secret private group". Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer Wickr. If you really need to, buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA/GCHQ to hack into. Ensure it has no GPS tracking on it and that the battery can be removed. These are usually built for old people to get used to technology storing only a set of numbers to call. However they have no games, applications to install or other ways people can exploit the computer tracking device you carry round with you most of the day - your smart phone. If you are paranoid ensure that you can remove the battery when travelling around and do so to prevent GPS tracking or phone mast triangulation. Even with your phone in Flight mode or turned off, it can be turned on remotely and any features like front or back cameras, microphones and keylogging software can be installed to trace you.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering rubbish) then I could REALLY do with some..

Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box and throw a few pound my way each month, it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why.


Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material.

Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and tag any tweets with alternative news from the mainstream with the #altnews hashtag I created to keep it alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
