Validity and accuracy of carbon dating
A giant corporation lied about science and got caught. Given that current computer models have failed to accurately represent what is occurring now, particularly in terms of the divergence between projections and actual global temperatures, the computer models from the 70s and 80s must have been notoriously inept at producing realistic projections of the future.
I notice that you couldn’t help throwing in the word “deny,” as if I am denying some facts and information which you apparently presume I haven’t considered.
How about the US government’s yearly subsidies of .5 billion to the Global Change Research Program, a giant pro warming bureaucracy?
To dispel any doubt as to what their position is here is a quote from the intro to their National Climate Assessment (NCA) report: “Global climate is changing.
The above list barely scratches the surface of the vast complex of vested interests that stand to gain through implementation of carbon remediation measures. Not any more than has been normal throughout the centuries. We have not seen anything like some of the well-documented droughts that have occurred around this planet for thousands of years, long before we humans were driving SUVs.
Several dates ranging over 400 years may indicate the beginning of the Little Ice Age: 1250 for when Atlantic pack ice began to grow 1275 to 1300 based on radiocarbon dating of plants killed by glaciation 1300 for when warm summers stopped being dependable in Northern Europe 1315 for the rains and Great Famine of 1315–1317 1550 for theorized beginning of worldwide glacial expansion 1650 for the first climatic minimum. To this date half of all US states, that is 25 of the 50, have all-time high temperature records which were set in the 1930s and have not been exceeded since.
What actual empirical evidence, independent of adjusted computer models, is there that most of the warming of the last century is due to human activities when the global climate actually began warming at the end of the Little Ice Age in the mid-19th century, nearly a century before significant introduction of fossil fuel derived CO2 to the atmosphere? This data is directly from the National Weather Service and has been spared the endless “adjusting” such as the IPCC performs on the raw Had CRUT data in order to proclaim “the hottest year on record” (by not much more than a hundredth of a degree)− a record, I might add, that is barely over a century old, and appallingly incomplete.
