Why The World Stopped Warming

I can’t help but wonder what the net offset is in reality. I mean, sure the particulate ejection may block some sunlight, but the massive quantity of CO2 released during eruptions would seem to offset most of any benefit achieved due to reflection. I don’t have any science to back this assertion up, but then, neither do they.

The impact of volcanic eruptions on global warming could provide a new explanation for the so-called “pause” used by sceptics to deny climate change is happening, scientists have said.

According to a study in the US, models for predicting the rate at which temperatures around the world would rise from 1998 onwards did not take into consideration the measurable impact volcanoes can have.

Rather than contributing to global warming, eruptions release particles into the air that reflect sunlight – causing temperatures to drop.

Experts from the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in California said this phenomenon was not taken into account when predictions were made – offering an explanation for why the world seemed to stop heating up.

I swear these people think we are fools. They throw excuse after excuse into the public domain – even blaming reality for f-k’s sake – to explain why their shitty models don’t match up with hard data. Here’s a novel concept: Stop front-loading your models to achieve a political objective and try practicing some real science. You know, “science”… that stuff you’re supposed to use a method for, which must be observable and repeatable? Otherwise, it’s just a theory at best and pure ideological hokum, at worst.

    “Global Dimming”

    Particulate in the air, not necessarily volcanic ash. Have you see pictures of the foul air in China? India?

    In January that foul shit from China made the West Coast and inland via the jet stream.

    Or maybe it was all of Gore’s jet fuel in the upper atmosphere that they left out of the modeling.

    Or maybe these control freaks just need to admit that Nature fluctuates and there is some shit that is just bigger than them.

    From 6 years ago this information with comments differs with the “uniform concentration” theory…it is wrong, and JPL and NASA agree.

    The model calls for warming. The world didn’t warm so, obviously, there is something wrong with the world.

    Volcanoes, they have decided, are what is wrong with the world. They are what is keeping reality from matching their divine and sacrosanct model.

  4. R.D. Walker says:

    Their model says that human released CO2 ‘forces’ an increase in atmospheric water vapor which, they all agree, is the real engine of global warming. That is one of those things 98% of scientists agree on.

    If, however, the increase in water vapor results in an increase in both cloud cover and snow cover, that would cause one hell of a lot more sunlight reflection than does particulate from volcanic eruptions.

    It also makes a hell of a lot of sense that an increase in water vapor would result in an increase in cloud cover and snow cover, doesn’t it?

    So why do they ignore it? Because it would mean that the planet has a natural thermostat that controls runaway greenhouse effect as well as runaway socialism. They can’t have that.

    “Science”, if you want to call it that, has been unable to predict cloud cover.

    Come on Guys, Be Nice. Just send Big Al a few bucks to plant more trees. That’ll take care of the problem.

    Is Vulcanism some newley discovered process? If not, any climate change model that doesnt take it’s potential affects into consideration is not much of a model. It would be like having a global temp. model or graph whose author ingnored a known historic warming period, such as the MWP.

    Anybody remember the sun is in a 30 year lull for sunspots? Duh?
