Micheal Mann: "level of warmth that we’ve now reached is unprecedented in tens of thousands of years"

Postby kramer » Wed Oct 10, 2018 3:57 pm

Michael Mann: We Are Even Closer To Climate Disaster Than IPCC Predicts (<<-- Fordama, since you've taken it upon yourself to be the decider of 'what is and isn't a prediction', please check that the IPCC actually made a real prediction and not some wild-assed claim and then report back to us with your high-info findings...)

MICHAEL MANN: Yeah, so 1.5 degrees Celsius warming over the time scale of a century is unprecedented. As far back as we can go, we have not seen rates of warming that large. And in fact, the level of warmth that we’ve now reached is unprecedented in tens of thousands of years.


Couple of observations:

1) "time scale of a century is unprecendeted?"

Really?

From Physorg:
Researchers show that global warming happened just as fast in the past as today

"Climate change in the earth's past faster than previously thought"
https://phys.org/news/2015-11-global-fast-today.html

Bonus enlightenment from kramer: "...than previously thought" is code speak for saying that previous peer reviewed studies were wrong. If you pay attention to some of the current MSM and science articles, they state this fairly often. Meanwhile, the socialist UN is leveraging this weak science in order to spend up to slightly over 100 trillion dollars to make the weather better and the world a better (socialist) place.

Bottom line: Mann's statement looks specious. And is he a dupe for socialists?

2) "the level of warmth that we’ve now reached is unprecedented in tens of thousands of years."


The picture below is of a tree stump around 5,000 years old, 100km north of the current tree line. That means, 5,000 years ago, it was so warm that there were trees 100km north of the current tree line.


Again, this picture makes the second statement by Mann looks specious.

Mann is the creator of the hockey stick graph of temperature. It was later found out that some of his statistical methods were wrong and that if you fed his computer program data from a random number generator, it would create a hockey stick.

The end of the Permian Age was about 250,000,000 years ago, and the climate change probably caused the extinction of about 90% of the life on Earth.That's more than tens of thousands of years by a considerable margin.

I am because if the entire world goes socialist, i think there's then a good chance it'll soon become communism controlled.

Doesn't matter. It's happened before and more than once. 10,000 years out of 4 billion is a tine fraction of time.

Doesn't matter.
Yes, I get that facts, context, and overwhelming evidence doesn't matter to you.

Anything to maintain your political imperatives no matter the reality. You are as well indoctrinated as any mid-twentieth century Marxist.

It is I who provides the facts w/links to back them up and you who provides the BS and occasional comment that is untruthful.

Where is the "overwhelming evidence" that CO2 is the temperature control knob and bad weather control knob?

Almost every developed nation is either socialist or a capitalist/socialist hybrid. The only purely capitalist nation (no rules and free market) that comes to mind is something like Somalia. And for some reason no one is building or buying condos on the Horn of Africa.
They told me if I voted for Hillary Clinton the president would be emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable. They were right. I voted for Hillary Clinton and got a president that is emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable.

That sounds a helluva lot more like your side Fordama.

Ford, I have to admit I've never heard conservatives screaming, "It's hollow, it's hollow!" But for years I've listened to liberals screaming, "The sky is falling, the sky is falling!"

Isn't picking sides Step 2 of the scientific method? Right between "1. Remember who you're working for" and "3. Start with a conclusion"?
