In need of a crash course in geology, logic and science

As world leaders get ready to head to Paris for the latest pact on cutting CO2 emissions, it has emerged that there isn't as much urgency about the matter as had been thought.

A team of top-level atmospheric chemistry boffins from France and Germany say they have identified a new process by which vast amounts of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are emitted into the atmosphere from the sea - a process which was unknown until now, meaning that existing climate models do not take account of it.

The effect of VOCs in the air is to cool the climate down, and thus climate models used today predict more warming than can actually be expected. Indeed, global temperatures have actually been stable for more than fifteen years, a circumstance which was not predicted by climate models and which climate science is still struggling to assmilate.

The Register - Biting the Hand that Feeds it.

Global warming is indeed a scam, perpetrated by scientists with vested interests, but in need of crash courses in geology, logic and the philosophy of science.

  1. The Earth and climate could not have survived this long with out some pretty powerful feedback loops to counter any and everything that gets thrown at it. I've had no doubt that the Earth would survive the climate changes - even those brought on by humans.... the only question I have is... can humans survive Earth's cure?

    Increased VOC's (in the form of Isoprene) in the air we breathe does not sound human-friendly, to me.
    From "Overall evaluation: Isoprene is possibly carcinogenic to humans (Group 2B)."
