Dr John Christy testimony US House Committee 2 Feb 2016
Comparison between local politicians’ opinions on climate and Professor John Christy’s testimony at US senate committee hearing.

The full text of Christy’s testimony to the Senate Science committee. It really reinforces the little clip above and is so clear and easy to comprehend.

[begins] I am John R. Christy, Distinguished Professor of Atmospheric Science, Alabama’s State Climatologist and Director of the Earth System Science Center at The University of Alabama in Huntsville. I have served as Lead Author, Contributing Author and Reviewer of United Nations IPCC assessments, have been awarded NASA’s Medal for Exceptional Scientific Achievement, and in 2002 was elected a Fellow of the American Meteorological Society.
It is a privilege for me to offer my analysis of the current situation regarding (1) the temperature datasets used to study climate, (2) our basic understanding of climate change and (3) the effect that regulations, such as the Paris agreement, might have on climate. I have also attached an extract from my Senate Testimony last December in which I address (1) the popular notion that extreme climate events are increasing due to humaninduced climate change (they are not), and (2) the unfortunate direction research in this area has taken.
My research area might be best described as building datasets from scratch to advance our understanding of what the climate is doing and why. Cont/

    They adjust the ship data to agree with the buoy data which is then adjusted!

    For how long do we have to be thrashed by a cat of nine tails by these 97% of climate scientists who can only be called charlatans.

    They are certainly not statisticians, mathematicians, or even arithmeticians.

    They are presenting a conclusion they believe and then justifying it by completely dodgy data that they create!

  2. Gurglars

    By his calculations if the US ceased to exist (and therefore no effect on global climate), there would only be a 0.8 degree change in monthly temperatures which is less than the difference between monthly mean temperatures. Thus the Paris climate accord was a complete waste of time.

    Follow the money guys, follow the money. And if that fails, follow the BS.

    Is he one of the Borgia’s? There does seem to be a likeness.

    Lucretia? Or was that the Addams family?

  7. Only disappearing species know the good oil on Climate Change, and they’re not sayin’ (actually, they wouldnt ‘say’ anyway). Tom McKinlay’s “Cool Heads on Climate Change” (ODT), is worth revisiting. We get a bit dualist with DCC decisions in the Meso, and Global concerns in the Macro. Because Council has adopted a position, it does not follow that the entire topic is spurious.

    • The Dystopic Music Hall: I say, it’s an anthropocenic day! Oh yas, what’s an anthropocene? It’s a scene with men in it! Do tell. How’s your CO2 extractor? Confiscated by the Photosynthesis Detector Van! Looney Detector Van, you mean. What a performance, just because fellas 200 years couldn’t do without coal and gas. I hear their wives went to the West Indies. Did they make them..? There’s something not quite right about this sketch..
