We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
All of the doomsday computer modeling on climate rely on a positive feedback hypothesis, which has often been discussed by Watts Up and Climate Skeptic.
The existence of a positive climate feedback loop, however, is purely theoretical and, as many have noted, nature tends to be more about negative than positive loops. Furthermore, the computer models have yet to show any predictive power.
Watts Up now has evidence for negative feedback loops in climate. It's time to start over with the climate models - and it's time for the modelers to show a little humility. After all, those genius Wall Street quant modelers haven't done too well, have they?
Since when has any modern American shown any 'humility?' About anything. The words 'humility' and 'I was wrong, I screwed up' have literally vanished from the English language, especially from the language of those who have screwed up.
I think it's Bill Clinton's fault. Anyone who can say "I did not have sex with that woman" in the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary will never, ever, have any humility.
I, on the other hand, have said I was wrong since I was a small child. And I was, sometimes, too.
I'm not quite sure if my way of interacting with the climate can reach the levels you good people are showing at this site, but I asked a chemtrail about climate, about itself and that was how it all began.
