Maybe the denialists are right?

I’ve always dismissed the findings of the Bolt/Blair School of Global Warming Denialism believing that climate scientists themselves would be the best people to consult on such issues. I always assumed they didn’t have a strong grasp of the details of climate science and that they couldn’t make the distinction between weather and climate, or that they would cherry-pick from the available data to make their case. But I’ve been doing some analysis of the data myself and I’m reluctant to report that based on the evidence, they’re right. Observe:

I’ve mapped the temperature data for Sydney over the last six days (Source: Australian Bureau of Meteorology.)

Sydney Week

Note the distinctive downward trend for the maximum temperature over the given time period. Global Warming Prophets of Doom say that AGW will lead to higher temperatures, yet the data shows precicesly the opposite.

But that’s not all.

Below is a graph of Sydney’s temperature record for the 12th of May, 2008. The graph maps the recorded temperature from around lunch time until 11:30PM. (Source: Australian Bureau of Meteorology.)

Sydney Day Temp

Again, notice the distinctive downward trend. It appears we are not undergoing a period of global warming, but global cooling.

I wonder, how will the IPCC spin these latest “inconvenient truths”?

    Yes, the denialists are right. Check out the missing solar cycle.

    Better jump on the denial train or you’re gonna feel like a total retard for decades. You’ll be like the dude who argued with Pasteur over germ theory.

  2. And here a list of famous deniers in history:

    1) Capurnicus

    2) Galileo

    3) Newton

    4) Pasteur

    5) Einstein

    6) Just about every scientist who has made a major discovery.

  3. Excellent post!

    By the way, the list of “famous deniers” is bull. Newton was never at odds with the scientific community, in fact they nearly deified him for the brilliance of his insights. The same is true of Einstein’s relativity; his only substantive disagreement with scientific concensus was about quantum mechanics, and in that case Einstein turned out to be wrong.

    But denialists love to compare themselves to Galileo, even though he wasn’t persecuted by scientists — he was persecuted by *religious* leaders.

    Thanks mick but I think I’ll still side with the climatologists on this one.

    At least try to be civil. And you’ll have to do better than listing some well known scientists and calling them “deniers” when trying to make your case. You have to actually offer some form of argument.

  5. You tracked the climate for six days??!? That’s way more comprehensive than that Al Gore fraud – who has an electric bill, don’t forget! If you did science for almost a week, I’m convinced.

    It’s really a lot more accurate than “core samples” and other kind of guessing. I bet you even had a thermometer and everything!

    I better change my ways and buy a Hummer.

  6. Whether they are right or not is irrelevant. L. Ron Bolt and his Carbon Pinkies are organising, and that is downright scary.

  7. LMAO!

    Nice Troll.

    The Warmers have been cherry-picking information for the media for decades and every time a study undermines something they cherry-picked, the Warming train just keeps on trying to roll along on some other falsehood.

    I am an atmospheric scientist. There is no consensus nor is the science settled. But within the next few years, I think final knife in the heart to the theory that the warming is man-made will come about. Hopefully, the idiots in political office don’t screw up the world more by buying the BS put out by Gore and the rest of the green power elite.

  8. Those Damn Denialists are at it again! We try to tell them about the cause, and they keep turning to the data! Don’t they know, you’ve just gotta drink the Koolaid, and BELIEVE!

    And what’s today’s data? “I didn’t think I’d need a jumper when I went out to get the paper this morning but it was actually quite brisk”?

  10. Here is 1,000 years of cooling. Do you want to go back to the Holocene Optimum when it was warmer for more cherry picking? You know, back before the SUV during times when there was more CO2 and colder air and less CO2 and warmer air? Face it, my friend, the climate refuses to cooperate with the man-made global warming myth, and many climatologists agree.

    In the same way “many” scientists doubt evolution?
