Well if that is all true ,and it is hard to tell these days.
Its good news.
What do you think CM ,wheres the balance or is it all good.

Glaciers by their nature have, are now, and always will move, albeit slowly.
Even if they were all receding at the melt end (they are not) it would still not be Empirical Evidence of Human causation.
In the same vain, even if Climate Computer Models could predict Climate accurately (they cannot) it would still not be Empirical Evidence of Human causation.

I'm following your revelations since a while and wanted to say thank you to find so much dissenting but profound research in one place.

The Franz Josef and Fox glaciers in South Westland have been advancing for nearly 30 years now I believe. These glaciers could be important in understanding how climate can increase snow fall even during potential warming. It is interesting hearing how AGW believers try and explain this away, not realising that citing increased precipitation due to warming can also mean glaciers in Antarctica could gain mass through exactly the same process.

Any time you hear a sweeping, simplistic statement about the real world, you can pretty much assume it is wrong. Even sea level does not go up and down evenly around the world because the overlying air masses also vary, some regions typically and consistently difference from the rest (I believe the Indian Ocean High might be a good example).

The problem is that, as soon as you start qualifying the answer, the listener starts to detect that the observation should be taken with reason and not with alarm - a totally rational approach.

Alarmists are crippled by the real world.

do you observe the extreme changes in the earth in the last year? is incredible how much, our planet little by little is becoming like a living organism, one that in this moment is trying to eliminate the worst plague, US!!!

Quoting:
' Prominent sceptic now agrees global warming real

Mon, 31 Oct 2011 8:27a.m.
By Seth Borenstein

A prominent physicist and sceptic of global warming spent two years trying to find out if mainstream climate scientists were wrong. In the end, he determined they were right: Temperatures really are rising rapidly.

The study of the world's surface temperatures by Richard Muller was partially bankrolled by a foundation connected to global warming deniers. He pursued long-held sceptic theories in analysing the data. He was spurred to action because of "Climategate" - a British scandal involving hacked emails of scientists.

Yet he found that the land is 1.6 degrees warmer than in the 1950s. Those numbers from Muller, who works at the University of California, Berkeley and Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, match those by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and NASA ....... '

"A prominent physicist and sceptic of global warming spent two years trying to find out if mainstream climate scientists were wrong. In the end, he determined they were right: Temperatures really are rising rapidly."

Unfortunately. It appears to be yet another 'whitewash, AGW/CC 'jackup/swindle/fraud' of the temp record as claimed by Muller.


Even the Co-author of the project is distancing herself from Muller's claims. Climate Scientist Judith Curry.


Besides the claims from Muller haven't even been peer reviewed either!

Looks like some changing of tunes by the CO2 AGW/CC political propaganda riddled faux science of the IPCC.

IPCC on extreme weather: no climate change for next 20-30 years


New IPCC report is going to say that science doesn't know whether CO2 has an effect on most climatic observables

It's a start, Acid... maybe!

"It's a start, Acid... maybe!'

Well the inconvenient truth was even Muller's own BEST temp data showed NO statitical warming . Basically flat for the recent last decade or so. 11-13yrs depepending on interpretation of the data.

That of course was 'deceitfully' left off the original Temp graph and PR press release on the BEST data.

That was one of the reasons for the spat that broke out between Judith Curry and Muller. They've since apparently kissed and made up. :-)

Uh oh, global warming loons: here comes Climategate II!

Breaking news: two years after the Climategate, a further batch of emails has been leaked onto the internet by a person – or persons – unknown. And as before, they show the "scientists" at the heart of the Man-Made Global Warming industry in a most unflattering light. Michael Mann, Phil Jones, Ben Santer, Tom Wigley, Kevin Trenberth, Keith Briffa – all your favourite Climategate characters are here, once again caught red-handed in a series of emails exaggerating the extent of Anthropogenic Global Warming, while privately admitting to one another that the evidence is nowhere near as a strong as they'd like it to be.

AGW/CC carbon footprint hypocrite. The UK equivelent of Al Gore?


Climate Minister buys a castle with 16 bathrooms... and a massive carbon footprint

He is the climate change minister who pledged to ‘lead by example’ in the fight against global warming.
But Charles Hendry is facing accusations of hypocrisy after buying himself a 20-bedroom castle – with a potentially massive carbon footprint – as a second home.

The tribalistic corruption of peer review – the Chris de Freitas incident


From New Zealand Climate Change, this goes beyond “noble cause corruption”. This is outright malicious interference with the scientific process, and it’s damned ugly. I can’t imagine anyone involved in professional science who could stand idly by and not condemn this.
