When Al Gore was elected vice-president in 1992, only 17% of climate scientists accepted his junk science, and everyone accepted the Medieval Warm period.

This did not make fraudster Al Gore happy, so he fixed it by cutting off funding for skeptics like Bill Gray. Gore’s creative use of funding made the Medieval Warm Period disappear, and created the 97% consensus.

IPCC Third Assessment Report – Climate Change 2001

Last night Hillary said the only reason skeptics believe what they believe, is because the Koch Brothers are paying us and tell us what he have to say.

President Obama Proposes $10 per Barrel Carbon Tax

Watts Up With That?

obama head

Guest essay by Eric Worrall

President Obama has proposed a $10 per barrel carbon tax to fund renewable energy, and to “encourage” people to stop using oil.

From the Whitehouse Statement;

For too long, bipartisan support for innovative and expansive transportation investment has not been accompanied by a long-term plan for paying for it. We need a sustainable funding solution that takes into account the integrated, interdependent nature of our transportation system. Travelers choose between walking, biking, driving, flying, and taking the train; and companies choose between trucks, barges, airplanes and rail lines. So to meet our needs in the future, we have to make significant investments across all modes of transportation. And our transportation system is heavily dependent on oil. That is why we are proposing to fund these investments through a new $10 per barrel fee on oil paid by oil companies, which would be gradually phased…

Initialization practices disqualify UN IPCC global circulation models from use for most climate change forecast purposes

Watts Up With That?

Guest essay by Michael G. Wallace Hydroclimatologist, Albuquerque, NM

The United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change UN IPCC features and endorses decadal global climate forecasting products. Those in turn feed into numerous downscaled regional climate forecasts. In published representations of forecast skills to date, all within this collective appear to include the poorly disclosed practice of annual boundary condition re-initializations. At one time, such initializations were isolated to obscure attempts to improve forecasts of seasonal climates (lead time 4 months). Now the initializations have become institutionalized, and they direct multi decadal predictions throughout the field of global and regional climate forecasting. The results would be more transparent to peers and the public if the true decadal history matching skills of the models (without initializations) were highlighted.

Most would agree that global circulation models (GCMs) are primarily designed to address a range of global and regional moisture and temperature prediction…
