Average Global Temperature – Lies, Damned Lies, and Statistics

News stories from time to time raise the specter of anthropogenic global warming that must be arrested and/or retarded to prevent the death of all mankind.

My business is measurement and control, sometimes for production processes, most of the time for indoor climate control systems, and a growing business sector of self-funding energy retrofits.

The proponents of the supposed anthropogenic global warming/climate change declare a rise in average temperature.

In my business, if there is to be a measurement of airflow through a large aperture, say an air handling unit, we know in advance there is no single-point measurement that will accurately represent the average rate of airflow.

Typically, across the face of the aperture, the opening through which air flows, we require a minimum of one sample per square foot. If the aperture is a large filter bank of MountainRangeTennisRacket_zpsa5da6447some dimension, we mark off a grid where grid lines cross at one-foot intervals. For example, if the filter media surface is six feet high by 20 feet wide, the total number of samples will be 180, one per square foot of area.

Assuming the surface area of the earth to be 197,000,000 miles2, and each mile2 accounts for 2,878,400 feet2, what will be the number of samples I would measure and record to derive an average global temperature? Let’s do the math.

197,000,000 miles2  X 2,878,400 square feet per mile = 5.4920448 X 1015 square feet of surface area, therefore this same number of samples. Naturally, the samples must all be collected in real time, therefore there must be one sensor per square mile. The reader immediately recognizes the astronomical cost to place precise temperature sensors and supporting electronics over such an area.

If you compare one sensor per square mile, you will readily see how the accuracy is very low. Yes, I know, NOAA uses NASA satellite data. But the data is highly inaccurate because it derives from infrared temperature (IR) observations. Without telling you how to build a watch, let it suffice to say IR is not a good means to accurate measurements.

The alarmists like Al Gore attribute global warming to human activity. How does the sum of human activity compare to the heated core of the earth or, better still, that blazing ball of fire 93 million miles distant?

Given 7.5 billion people and an average weight of 137 lbs./person, the sum of all human flesh adds up to approximately 1.0275 X 1012 pounds of flesh. How does the sum of all human flesh compare to the mass of the nearest star (our sun) that is 1, 300,000 times the mass of the entire earth?

Consider a USA Today news story titled California’s endless winter: 8 feet of snow still on the ground in June (7 June 2017). From this story I quote, “the amount of snow on the ground in the central Sierra region was twice as much as usual, marking its biggest June snowpack in decades”.

Next, from The Next Grand Minimum (7 June 2017), Solar Update June 2017–the sun is slumping and headed even lower. I quote: “The F10.7 flux shows that over the last three and a half years the Sun has gone from solar maximum through a bounded decline to the current stage of the trail to the minimum. Solar minimum is likely to be still three years away.”

One would have to have an ego as large as Al Gore’s houseboat to believe a mere man can affect the global temperature of the earth.

We elected a REAL Republicans but we must now defeat FAKE Republicans

So-called old-guard Republican insiders actually want the Congress and our newly elected stop-feeding-rinosPresident to adopt leftist policies that run contrary to genuine science and common sense.

Bloomberg Headline of February 7, 2017, 6:34 PM CST, updated February 8, 2017, 10:19 AM CST:

Old-Guard Republicans to Push Carbon Tax at White House Meeting

“The Republican and business leaders, calling themselves the Climate Leadership Council, lend their stature to an approach for addressing climate change that mirrors an idea already advanced by Exxon Mobil Corp.Supporters say the tax is a conservative solution to climate change that replaces a regulatory regime with a free-market approach for addressing the greenhouse gas emissions.”

First and foremost, this is not “a conservative solution to climate change”. This is an ignorantly promoted end-around play by RINOs to solve a problem that does not exist. This is to say there is zero, nada, scientific evidence of anthropogenic climate change, formerly called global warming.

Contact your two U.S. Senators and your Representative. Tell them not to support the outlandish proposal by RINOs to create a carbon tax to appease the environmentalists. We won. Let’s, for once, behave like winners.

In my part of Texas (CD-4), these are the lawmakers you should contact:

Senator John Cornyn https://www.cornyn.senate.gov/contact

Senator Ted Cruz https://www.cruz.senate.gov/?p=form&id=16

Global Warming (aka Climate Change) predicted by the globalists isn’t happening. Do you know why?

why-so-few-tropical-storms-in-2016

Here is the ‘rocket science’.

Hurricanes spawn when the surface temperature of the oceans is between about 5 and 20 degrees of latitude is 80 degrees F. or warmer. If no warm water, no hurricanes. Period. Got it? Reference: NOAA OCEAN EXPLORER http://bit.ly/2gIDPeQ

What is the source of heat for the surfaces of the oceans? It’s that bright light in the daytime sky, the sun. Reference: NASA The Water Cycle: Heating the Ocean http://go.nasa.gov/2gjUARG

It’s neither the coal-fired power plants nor your automobile that elevate the surface temperature of tropical seas. It’s the sun. Got it?

The Sun, by the way, is moving into a Maunder Minimum phase during which solar activity is, well, minimal. Few to no sunspots. All this means is less solar heating of the surface of the earth. Our earth.

End of ‘rocket science’ lesson.

Obama’s globalist policies leave over 61,000 coal miners unemployed. Global warming and climate change cannot possibly be anthropogenic (man-caused).

Let’s set aside the globalist who would reduce the United States of America to something less than a caveman way of life.

Let’s make America great again by first returning to the faith of our Founding Fathers. The election of Donald Trump cannot be attributed to anything but divine intervention. As scripture says, “He controls the course of world events; he removes kings and sets up other kings. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the scholars.” – Daniel 2:21

Even God wants to “Drain the Swamp!”

Global Warming/Climate Change & Rising Sea Levels

6 March 2016 AD

palacios sea wall near pavilion
Seal Wall in Palacios, Texas – Looking East from Old Pavilion Boardwalk
Regarding claims of rising sea levels, this I have witnessed all my life in Palacios, Texas where I was born and raised. My hometown’s slogan is “City by the Sea”.
 

How fast do tides rise? It’s amazing. No, it isn’t a matter of weeks, months or years. Tides rise TWICE EACH DAY, in fact, every 12 hours and 25 minutes.

 

Like clockwork, it takes 6 hours and 12-1/2 minutes for tides to go from high tide to low, then another 6 hours and 12-1/2 minutes for tides to go from low tide to high.

 

How much does sea level change between high and low tides? Wind speed and direction are a major factor. That big shiny object 230,000 miles above us excerpts most influence on tides.

 

The picture below is of the Palacios sea wall. The view is to the east from the old Pavilion boardwalk. This is how tidal waters looked sixty years ago; this is how they appear sixty years later.

 

Fear mongers touting anthropogenic global warming/climate change tell of rising sea levels that threaten islands of the sea. Recently, this sitting president reported how rising sea levels threaten Norfolk, VA.

 

Following the above claims of rising tides, one must conclude the tides of Trinity Bay undergo rising tides due to anthropogenic global warming/climate change. Sea water laps into Baytown homes during high tides. Is this not proof of man-caused climate change? Well, not exactly.

 

Baytown, TX, Norfolk, VA and the islands of the sea experience land subsidence. Several factors cause land subsidence, chiefly extraction of ground water.

 

“Subsidence is a global problem and, in the United States, more than 17,000 square miles in 45 States, an area roughly the size of New Hampshire and Vermont combined, have been directly affected by subsidence. More than 80 percent of the identified subsidence in the Nation has occurred because of exploitation of underground water , and the increasing development of land and water resources threatens to exacerbate existing land-subsidence problems and initiate new ones. In many areas of the arid Southwest, and in more humid areas underlain by soluble rocks such as limestone, gypsum, or salt, land subsidence is an often-overlooked environmental consequence of our land- and water-use practices.”

If by now you don’t know, you should know the vacuous nature of climate-change/global-warming hysteria is all based on junk science and junk science is simply not science at all.

If you have fallen for the deception, you are not alone. My own professional organization, the American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air-conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) promotes terms like Global Warming Potential (GWP) and climate change remedies, instead of standing by the scientific method.

Jesus says, “You shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free.” What is truth? Truth is the way things really are.

2006-2016: The Decade of Duplicity

January 27, 2016 ADIT'S ALIVE ALGORE

Former Democrat VP, self-certified climate expert, and Nobel Peace Prize recipient Al Gore awoke this morning to a startling surprise: The Earth is still very much alive.
 
24 years ago, Mr.Gore wrote a book titled “Earth in the Balance: Ecology and the Human Spirit” in which he decried the perils of global warming, ozone depletion, air and water pollution, deforestation, depletion of top soil, waste disposal and loss of biodiversity. [Fact check: for what it’s worth, today we have more trees than at the time of Columbus’ landing in the Americas.]
 
On the matter of “biodiversity”, this has been a consequence of the Second Law of Thermodynamics: the universe continuously and irreversibly loses energy, thereby affecting all life on earth. As one scientist elegantly stated, “As usable energy is irretrievably lost, disorganization, randomness, and chaos increase.” Yes, Algore, we have been continually losing animal and plant species since the creation of the world. This is why we have no T-Rex and Brontosaur running about our neighborhoods today.
 
Moving right along, Gore published a second book on his favorite subject in 2006 called, “An Inconvenient Truth: The Planetary Emergency of Global Warming and What We Can Do About It”. In this book of false prophecy, he predicted the earth as we know it would come to a miserable end within 10 years. Well, here we are 10 years later on and now I can say, “It’s alive, Algore! It’s alive!!”
 
From the very beginning of the well-engineered hysteria over our imminent demise as a species, governance has been on a long march from statehood to global governance. Yes, the end game of the false prophets like Mr. Gore is a one-world government.
 
Obama pushes decision making into the hands of the UN. The Trans-Pacific trade agreement is Obama’s biggest deal to date. Under the terms of this agreement, We the People of the United States of America surrender our sovereignty without so much as a whimper from Congress.
 
Leftists never sleep. We on the right just want to get on with our lives, raise great children, serve our fellow man, then retire in ease. It’s time for all good men and women to come to the aid of their country.
 
Inform yourselves. Get involved. Communicate within your community and with your lawmakers, local, state and federal. While the earth is not coming to an end this year, America, the last best hope of the world is heading toward totalitarian tyranny. We the INFORMED People are the only defense.

Open Letter to Representative John Ratcliffe – Restore NASA’s Mission

Subject: President Unlawfully Uses NASA As His Propaganda Ministry

John,

I remember well when NASA was founded back in 1958. The nascent National Aeronautics and Space Administration put us into the race for space. My memory of President John Kennedy’s stated goal of landing a man on the moon within ten years is as fresh today as it was in 1961. 1969 marked two life-changing events for me: marriage to my lifemate and the landing of the Lunar Module on the moon, both events within thirty days of one another. Still later, through friendship with our former Congressman Ralph Hall, I was privileged to meet and speak with astronauts of that era, including Neil Armstrong. Later still, my aerospace employer, the Norden Company, manufactured components for NASA spacecraft.

There were eight clear objectives outlined in the National Aeronautics and Space Act of 1958.

  1. The expansion of human knowledge of phenomena in the atmosphere and space;
  2. The improvement of the usefulness, performance, speed, safety, and efficiency of aeronautical and space vehicles;
  3. The development and operation of vehicles capable of carrying instruments, equipment, supplies and living organisms through space;
  4. The establishment of long-range studies of the potential benefits to be gained from, the opportunities for, and the problems involved in the utilization of aeronautical and space activities for peaceful and scientific purposes.
  5. The preservation of the role of the United States as a leader in aeronautical and space science and technology and in the application thereof to the conduct of peaceful activities within and outside the atmosphere.
  6. The making available to agencies directly concerned with national defenses of discoveries that have military value or significance, and the furnishing by such agencies, to the civilian agency established to direct and control nonmilitary aeronautical and space activities, of information as to discoveries which have value or significance to that agency;
  7. Cooperation by the United States with other nations and groups of nations in work done pursuant to this Act and in the peaceful application of the results, thereof; and
  8. The most effective utilization of the scientific and engineering resources of the United States, with close cooperation among all interested agencies of the United States in order to avoid unnecessary duplication of effort, facilities, and equipment.

From my youth until 2009 NASA was known to be dedicated to the exploration of and dominance of outer space and resolution of aeronautical issues within earth’s atmosphere.

NASA’s mission was compromised in 2009 when Barack Obama became president. He appointed Charles Bolden, a retired United States Marines Corps major-general and former astronaut to head the agency. Said Bolden of his goals assigned to him by President Obama,

One, he wanted me to help reinspire children to want to get into science and math; he wanted me to expand our international relationships; and third, and perhaps foremost, he wanted me to find a way to reach out to the Muslim world and engage much more with dominantly Muslim nations to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science, math, and engineering.” – Source: The Telegraph

One would assume this sitting president thought he should make Muslims around the world proud of their accomplishments, like all the modern inventions of Muslims that we find in use around the world today. I would list these “accomplishments”, but it seems no ready record of them exists.

This president now uses NASA to produce “climate change” propaganda based on very bad science. I give only one significant point of bad science: sea levels. NASA propaganda touts rising sea levels. You perhaps heard Obama decrying rising sea levels in Norfolk, VA. What is the status of sea levels? First of all, the Atlantic Ocean isn’t rising in Norfolk. Norfolk is sinking; a matter of land subsidence. Second, good science, data actually acquired by NASA indicates global sea level is falling.

“The good news is that Antarctica is not currently contributing to sea level rise, but is taking 0.23 millimeters per year away.” – NASA Study: Mass Gains of Antarctic Ice Sheet Greater than Losses, October 30,2015

Thankfully, data collected by NASA disproves the president’s climate-change theory. Unfortunately, the truth isn’t a goal of President Obama; control of the American people is his objective. Political propaganda is the tool by which he undermines our energy and industrial enterprises.

Therefore, I request that you work with your colleagues to restore the original mission of NASA. Future NASA budgets should prohibit the use of this federal agency as a political tool.

Thank you for your consideration of my proposal.

Ever Evolving Environmental Exactitude – Tyranny In Your Air Conditioner

9 July 2015
22 Tammuz 5775

Just for fun, let’s examine this graphic created by California minds. The technical article from which it comes talks about the importance of ozone (O3) in the stratosphere and how man made fluorocarbons deplete this vital barrier against harmful ultraviolet rays. I quote:

Source: University of California
Source: University of California

The ultimate source of the ozone is the simple reaction O2+ O = O3; the oxygen atom O is formed when the sun’s ultraviolet radiation breaks apart an oxygen molecule O2. The ultimate loss of ozone is through nearly the opposite reaction O3 + O = 2O2 that results in regular oxygen molecules again. The actual processes are considerably more complicated, involving catalysts which help speed production or destruction. Without human intervention, the production and destruction processes result in a relatively fixed amount of ozone, much like a bathtub would remain at a constant level if the amount of water flowing from the tap exactly equaled the amount going down the drain.” – California Agriculture

Conclusion of the above cited scientific article is without human intervention, we are doomed. Well the article goes on with a discussion about “good ozone” and “bad ozone. It goes on to add the newest term of “global warming potential” due to secondary CO2 emissions.

Going back a few years, do you remember all the interest, hysteria, around the deadly ozone hole? Yes? Well, then I ask you, where is the ozone hole? After reading the referenced article, one might conclude the deadly ozone hole rests over California where only human intervention can save  that part of the planet.

Well, the ozone hole isn’t over California. It ‘s also not over our Lone Star State. Let’s look to NASA to discover the location of this dastardly ozone hole that threatens all humanity with all manner of crises from crop failures to “climate change” due to secondary CO2 emissions.

Source: NASA
Source: NASA

Do you recognize the area of the earth over which this menacing ozone hole lies? It’s Antarctica, not California, not Texas, not over any populated areas. If fluorocarbons from your mom’s air conditioner, refrigerator and hair spray cause ozone depletion, why isn’t there an ozone hole over Kansas?

Fluorocarbons do indeed deplete ozone and ozone depletion over Antarctica is indeed the sinister work of rogue fluorocarbons, but they don’t come from any man made system or product. It’s a natural phenomena. I list below reports for your enlightenment.

  1. Volcanic Halocarbons: Chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) in Volcanic Emissions – The writer of this paper attempts to discredit another scientist who actually studied CFC emissions from volcanoes.
  2. Mt Erebus Volcano Causes O-Hole – “Mount Erebus spews more [man made] ozone-gobbling chlorinated gasses into the atmosphere in one year than all of the CFCs combined.
  3. Halogen and sulfur content of volcanic emissions from Mount Erebus, Ross Island, Antarctica – a scientific study of gaseous emissions from the White Island [New Zealand] and the Mount Erebus [Antarctica] volcanoes.

Anti-human environmentalism is not science. It’s a religion whose belief system ever evolves. The core belief of the environmentalists is they must protect their Mother Earth at all costs, even to the point of de-populating the world. Out of this pagan belief system proceed the abortion movement, campaigns against vaccinations, eugenics and radical assaults on energy production and consumption. Global warming has undergone a metamorphosis to now be known as “climate change” with the newer caveat of “global warming potential”, despite the scientific  facts that tell us a new ice age comes upon us, as discussed in a Daily Caller article titled Scientists Fear Another ‘Little Ice Age’ Is On The Way.

In order to understand truth, one has to be willing to not be misled by unqualified sound bites and atheistic-environmentalist pretensions. Your Google works as well as mine. As it is written, you shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free.

Enlighten the people, generally, and tyranny and oppressions of body and mind will vanish like spirits at the dawn of day.” — Thomas Jefferson
