Miskolczi's model getting more attention

06/22/2008

“[Miskolczi’s] theory implies that adding CO2 to the atmosphere would reduce the relative humidity. So, has relative humidity been falling with increasing CO2 concentrations?

Here is a graph of global average annual relative humidity at various elevations in the atmosphere expressed in milli-bars (mb) from 300 mb to 700 mb for the period 1948 to 2007. The data is from the NOAA Earth System Research Laboratory here.

This graph shows that the GCM assumption of constant relative humidity is wrong and is yet another proof that the climate predictions of the International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) are wrong. …

The new Miskolczi theory of the greenhouse effect provides the detailed explanation of why the greenhouse effect is limited to its current value for a constant external Sun forcing. Adding CO2 to the atmosphere just replaces an equivalent amount of water vapour to maintain a constant greenhouse effect.

The global warming the Earth has experienced over the twentieth century is mostly due to the Sun, including the Sun’s effects on clouds via cosmic rays. Increasing Sun activity adds to the greenhouse effect by increasing the specific humidity; increasing CO2 concentration in the atmosphere does not.” ““Saturated greenhouse effect” wrecks climate models

"NASA GISS Biggest Outlier Again"

06/21/2008


“ENSO and the longer term PDO are the real drivers for decadal climate change, used to support the greenhouse gang from 1979 to around 2002 but now has them on the defensive. If the cooling continues as we believe it will, they will have to resort to even more creative data manipulation to keep the hoax alive. But this will become increasingly apparent because they have no control over the satellite measurements.” “May global data all in – NASA GISS biggest outlier again

I can only add that the Sun drives oceanic cycles and is the ultimate climate driver.

"Nationalize this!"

06/21/2008

“Which makes us wonder: Do they even know that socialism — state ownership of the means of production — has been completely discredited by history?

For 74 years, we struggled against this evil system, and it ultimately collapsed of its own internal contradictions. Yet, apparently, many Democrats are keen to replicate its worst features here.

What’s ironic about this nationalization mania is that government, specifically bad decisions made during decades of control by Democrats, is to blame for our current energy woes.

Whether it’s their failure to build nuclear power plants or oil refineries, their refusal to drill for our plentiful oil, their reliance on market-destroying price controls or their absurd belief that windfall profit taxes will somehow bring us more energy, Democrat-led Congresses have failed us over and over again.” “Nationalize this!

“Among other things, the Democrats called for the government to own refineries so it could better control the flow of the oil supply. …

Rep. Maurice Hinchey (D-NY), member of the House Appropriations Committee and one of the most-ardent opponents of off-shore drilling: “We (the government) should own the refineries. Then we can control how much gets out into the market.”” “House Democrats call for nationalization of refineries

What idiots.

Lower your demand!

“When it comes to the current crisis over high oil prices, the new twist in McCain’s June 17 speech is his plan to increase domestic supplies. The Democrats, in contrast, say that it’s easier and quicker to tame high prices by lowering demand. Reducing “energy consumption-and not the mantra of drilling-is the solution to our energy crisis,” says Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.).” “Offshore oil drilling opponents are rethinking
