    SD –

    the WORST thing about the real-science article is that GEOLOGISTS were doing the puzzled talking. In today’s watermelon greenie-world, the only people more unscientific than engineers are geologists. Absolute baby-eating pariahs :) Fit only for digging holes in the ground, which everyone knows any fool can do with a shovel

    This is quite noticeable in the meeja (MSM). Fairfax has gone as far as airbrushing geology out of the scientific disciplines, never to be mentioned except perhaps disparagingly as an agent to destroy aquifers. And as for engineers – they build ugly, planet-destroying smokestacks, don’t they ?

    Besides, 1939 … well, people didn’t really know any better then

    Yes ianl, as sceptics know, it’s the agenda, not the science and ironically those NZ glaciers have since advanced.

    And they call us deniers….

  3. Comment from: Neville


    Interesting temp record of Nuuk Greenland certainly shows warmer temps in the 1930s and has been cooling over the last 100 years.

    Lomborg also talked about the Greenland temp record and came to the same conclusion.

    Why not celebrate the new year with some real science http://www.seaci.org/publications/documents/SEACI-2Reports/Program_Annual_Report_2010_11.pdf

  5. Comment from: spangled drongo


    Real science, eh?

    If I thought I could believe it I’d be happy to wade through all that “science” but when it is modelling based on more CO2 = more heat and more heat = less rainfall, you can include me out.

    Particularly when I am see out my window more CO2 = less heat and less heat = more rainfall.

    And I’m not claiming that’s the full story but somehow I know it won’t even get a guernsey in your pretty picture book.

    Amazing it just seems the hockey stick won’t stop rolling over. Interesting email from Mann HS co author Bradley airing his doubts about their reconstruction.

    Interesting he states that if there was medieval warming he thinks the forcing at work would have been the Sun. But of course the Sun can’t have any forcing worth talking about in the modern warming can it? Just think about it we’re wasting billions because of this frudulent nonsense.

    The average max temp in my region for December is -4.8C below the longterm average. The min is 2.1C below the average.

    Yet they are freeking out over .8C warming over 100 years.

  8. Comment from: ianl8888


    @Neville

    The actual waste of $billions has become immeasurably worse in the last few days

    The EU Brussels Commissariat has decreed that any commercial flights landing or leaving the EU zone be “carbon taxed” for the full flight distance. This development has been brewing for quite a while now, but is cogent because an EU judge has decreed that such a tax does not “interfere with the sovereignty of other nations”

    China, amongst others, disagrees and is developing responses, including a possible trade war

    Try the calculation of a return flight from Sydney to the UK or Holland, acknowledging that the EU demands that it collects the full-distance tax, regardless of which non-EU countries the plane flys over before finally landing (both ways). Then multiply this by the number of weekly passengers from Aus and all other more distant countries

    Also a cutesy-poo way of helping them fill the $$hole left from their own profligacy

    As I said, real damage is now being done … not arm-chair waving anymore. These people are really dangerous

  9. Comment from: spangled drongo


    Today, Christmas day, is another king tide the same as Nov 26 however we also now have a semi-cyclone just offshore, big surf on the ocean beach, a higher SOI and quite low barometric pressure, all contributors to higher sea levels.

    But guess where it came to on the top of the tide? [and I waited around till it started to ebb in case I missed anything]

    “Still Waiting For Greenhouse”! as the late, great John Daly would say.

    Similar to last year, about 9 inches below half a century ago.

    We’ve almost reached the longest day of sunshine. It’s 7.28pm and it’s still shining.

    SD -see this from one of your own band

    http://kenskingdom.wordpress.com/2011/12/05/sea-level-change-in-australia-whats-likely/

    There is no way SL is going down from any angle

  12. Comment from: spangled drongo


    Gav, did you read any of that?

    It’s a report by Ken Stewart on a report from the Climate Commission.

    Flummery’s mob.

    And did you also read Morner’s report?

    http://www.spectator.co.uk/essays/7438683/rising-credulity.thtml

    And you know from your own knowledge of Ross’ mark at Port Arthur that there is nothing different happening.

    But thanks to stupid green politics predicting these SLRs, councils are making people import fill to build higher on their land which, in a flood/sea surge [which are common in coastal Aust], will displace flood waters higher into established buildings and affect existing homes which wouldn’t otherwise have been affected.

    These same councils had adopted policy after past flooding not to do this [import fill] for this very reason. You could only fill and increase your relative level by excavating your own land [if possible] and using that fill so you did not increase the overall flood level by raising the flood plain.

  13. Comment from: Luke


    Morner – just another flim flam big noting himself after being rebuked in the literature by his peers – and pretending to be someone he’s not. I love the people you drag up.

    “Dr Morner was, quite some time ago, president of one of INQUA’s commissions, indeed, the commission on sea-level changes. That commission no longer exists, as such, but is now part of our Commission on Coastal and Marine Processes. Dr Morner’s views concerning sea-level change are his own and are not endorsed by the current Executive Committee of INQUA, nor have previous INQUA Executive Committees endorsed Dr Morner’s views. On several occasions INQUA has requested of Dr Morner that he not inadvertently represent his views on sea-level change as if they have some connection with INQUA.” http://scienceblogs.com/deltoid/2009/11/the_australians_war_on_science_42.php

    or perhaps dowsing ? from Wikipravda Mörner has written a number of works claiming to provide theoretical support for dowsing. [1] He was elected “Deceiver of the year” by Föreningen Vetenskap och Folkbildning in 1995 for “organizing university courses about dowsing…”.[2] In 1997 James Randi asked him to claim The One Million Dollar Paranormal Challenge, making a controlled experiment to prove that dowsing works.[14] Mörner declined the offer.[15]

    Your guy SD !!

    As for Ianl comments about CAGW supporters on engineering and geology. What fantasy. All part of the sceptic meme to represent climate science as soft science.

    Soft science that SD ducks and ran a mile away from when confronted with what real modern climate science from SEACI looks like. Something NOT from dowsers.

    In fact what do 8 august geological bodies really say about AGW http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scientific_opinion_on_climate_change

    BTW as for sea level rise in Qld – well tabulated and reported as it is – hardly hidden …

    http://www.derm.qld.gov.au/register/p02256bl.pdf page 228

  14. Comment from: kuhnkat


    So Little Lukey,

    with all that well documented sea level rise, could you point to one of those endangered isalnds just centimeters above the water line which has gone under??

    Could you point to lost land that has been inundated, as opposed to eroded somewhere due to all that evil sea level rise??

    Sorry about that well documented then.

  15. Comment from: John Sayers


    Luke – have you read the INQUA statement on climate change?

    http://www.inqua.org/documents/iscc.pdf

    Have you checked out who is heading this august scientific body? It’s headed by a palaeoecologist from South Africa, most are biologists and only one of them has any sea level experience which has been limited to the Mediterranean and surrounds.

    Morner on the other hand has studied sea level globally for 35 years, he’s been to the Maldives, Bangladesh the Pacific Islands etc.

    So why do you take the word of a group of biologists over the word of a serious researcher on the subject. I’ll tell you why, it’s because INQUA support your pathetic theories on climate as they parrot the IPCC in their reports.

    http://wattsupwiththat.com/2011/12/01/hiding-the-decline-down-under-inconvenient-papers-censored/

    BTW there’s a dowser in Tenterfield who is flat out trying to keep up with the demands from the local farmers.

    “BTW as for sea level rise in Qld – well tabulated and reported as it is – hardly hidden …”

    R U Kidding?

    This is simply a paper of “no data” [25 years and in that time these gauges have even been moved]

    It’s based on IPCC predictions, the Stern Report and GCMs!

    Quelle science!!!!

    The only thing I found believable was the paleo graph and even then they claim that 3.5 meter increase in SLs back then was “around present day height”

    My data is better than theirs.

    No wonder people who know a bit about the history of SLR, like Morner, are sceptics.

    And when people like you and the govt spout this crap and use it to formulate long term policy it makes any normal person very sceptical and very wary.

  17. Comment from: Robert


    When sea level is constant, when temps are regular, when catastrophes, even in this age of instant reportage, are rare…then we will indeed be experiencing profound climate change.

    Water-divining, moxibustion and crystal healing are rightly regarded as unfounded and probably false. They differ from climate modelling in that climate modelling MUST be false.

    Sometimes one really can hear the laughter coming from the future. It’s not our tatts or our planking fatalities or middle-class white rappers which the future finds so amusing. It’s our climate models – where the superficial meets the complicated as an explosion of mindless conjecture.

  18. Comment from: spangled drongo


    John, thanks for those links. This one shows about what’s happening:

    Robert, I bet luke has tatts.

    Oh Ho, Resident Dipstick

    Your quote:

    >As for Ianl comments about CAGW supporters on engineering and geology. What fantasy. All part of the sceptic meme to represent climate science as soft science.<

    I was commenting on the predilection of the MSM meeja to disparage geology and engineering (NOT actual hard science viewpoints), but your squawk exactly fits your constant argumentum ad hominen dipstickeries and feeble strawmen

    As a perfect recent example, we have seen many purported cross-sections of the geology of the Surat and Gunnedah Basins published in both Fairfax and News outlets. Simple diagrams to be sure, but purporting to show how destructive of the Artesian Basin aquifers CSG is …yet not one of these diagrams shows that the coal seams are 200m+ BELOW the Artesian Basin sedimentary aquifers. In fact, they don't include the coal seams at all anywhere in the sedimentary sequence – because this would then destroy the greenie propaganda value

    Unlike the Resident Dipstick, I prefer evidence before I post.

  20. Comment from: Luke


    Yo my man – lotsa 8′s – don’t worry about greenies old mate – it’s the FARMERS who want you out ! They’ll just keep monitoring the increasing hydrocarbons in previously clean groundwater – doesn’t have to be artesian now does it …. now off you go quietly …

    SD – I said “as it is”

    Tatts – only on the willy – says “WENDY” http://www.ebaumsworld.com/jokes/read/474827/

    Anyway I did enjoy the latest denialist expose http://www.skepticalscience.com/peter-sinclair-on-climate-sun-and-cosmic-rays.html

  21. Comment from: John Sayers


    Yeah SD – that Fort Dennison data matches Morner’s prediction of 100mm over 100years +/- 100mm. :)

  22. Comment from: spangled drongo


    That Wendy joke, eh, Mon, that’s as old as your old fella.

    It’s one thing for a movie producer to massage a bit of data [look what fat Al did and you still believe it], let’s face it, that’s what they do, but when skippy sci, Tony Jones, and luke are happy to ignore our science leaders, AKA the hockey team, doing it with the lights on and their pants down, yet prefer to make an example of Durkin’s forgotten efforts, it speaks volumes, particularly about how desperate you-all are for any argument to support “the cause”.

    Address the issue, you malignant dummy !

    Here it is again:

    "As a perfect recent example, we have seen many purported cross-sections of the geology of the Surat and Gunnedah Basins published in both Fairfax and News outlets.

    Properly sealed drillholes solve minor leakage issues, but you still won't know the difference between Cenozoic and Jurassic sediments.You happily mix all this up in your tiny, dim little headspace and pretend this is science – well, soft science anyway (very soft)

    You are a perfect example of my point. Run away from a hard fact and make up c…p to cover your ignorance and cowardice. I've observed your endless pattern – argumentum ad hominen, straw men, irelevant links, sleazy evasion

    Ho hum, what a typical Watermelon

  24. Comment from: Luke


    ooooo – a bucolic ram-raiding geologist assuring croppers there won’t be problems when there obviously are. Lock the gates and shut the bastards out. Keep your benzene and toluene to yourselves. A diversionary spray against greens when its croppers rights and best cropping land in the nation that are the issue. So typical isn’t it of your industry just bullying its way across the landscape.
