The Science and Environmental Coverage Mission
Quote of the Week – “In God we belief, all others convey knowledge”. – Motto of the Apollo Staff and the Johnson House Flight Middle
Variety of the Week: 5.5 million sq. km (2.1 million sq. mi.)
By Ken Haapala, President, Science and Environmental Coverage Mission (SEPP)
Lengthy Overdue – Prediction Functionality: Of the about 50 newspapers and internet sites TWTW evaluations weekly, solely the UK International Warming Coverage Discussion board (GWPF) talked about an August 30 White Home memorandum that will grow to be necessary. The memorandum “Fiscal 12 months 2021 Administration Analysis and Growth Finances Priorities” was signed by Russell Vought, Performing Director of the Workplace of Administration and Finances, and Kelvin Droegemeier, Director of the Workplace of Science and Expertise Coverage. A key paragraph reads:
Earth System Predictability: Figuring out the extent to which parts of the Earth system are practicably predictable – from particular person thunderstorms to long-term world change- is vitally necessary for bodily understanding of the Earth system, assessing the worth of prediction outcomes, guiding Federal investments, creating efficient coverage, and bettering predictive ability. Departments and companies ought to prioritize R&D that helps quantify Earth system predictability throughout a number of phenomena, time, and area scales. Strategic coordination and leveraging of sources throughout companies on analysis and modeling efforts is required to speed up progress on this space. Moreover, companies ought to emphasize how measures of and limits to predictability, each theoretical and precise, can inform a wide selection of stakeholders. In addition they ought to discover the applying of AI and adaptive observing techniques to reinforce predictive ability, together with methods for acquiring substantial enhancements in computational mannequin efficiency and spatial decision throughout all scales. [Boldface added.]
Sadly, not one of the US authorities sponsored world local weather fashions have been validated; thus, they don’t have any worth for prediction.
Assessing the power of fashions to foretell may be troublesome, however it’s needed if one is to have real looking confidence within the predictions / projections of the mannequin. A gaggle of retired and extremely skilled engineers and scientists from the Apollo, Skylab, House Shuttle and Worldwide House Station eras volunteered their effort and time in conducting an goal, unbiased evaluation of the anthropogenic world warming (AGW) alarm and actuality of the particular risk. The group is named The Proper Local weather Stuff group (TRCS) and their web site provides a wonderful overview of the necessity to adhere to the scientific technique with a view to tackle advanced issues resembling local weather change. There have been no textbooks on the way to get to the moon, however many concepts. The scientists and engineers of the Apollo group persistently examined their concepts, hypotheses, and many others. in opposition to exhausting proof, knowledge, with strict adherence to the scientific technique.
The TRCS web page emphasizes this, particularly a 19-minute video by Hal Doiron, the previous chairman of the group: “If you’ll use a mannequin to information selections, it have to be validated. You should present it agrees with experiment or it agrees with mom nature.” [TWTW side comment: something Nature Magazine will not do.]
Early within the video Doiron presents a slide with the tile:
“Fallacy of Alarming International Warming Predictions
v Alarming world warming predictions should not in keeping with necessities of The Scientific Technique
Ø Predictions are primarily based on un-validated local weather simulation fashions
Ø The Scientific Technique requires that hypotheses and theories be confirmed by bodily knowledge, not by fashions that don’t agree with bodily knowledge
v Public coverage and army planning ought to be primarily based solely on fashions validated by bodily knowledge
v Validated fashions mission a lot much less future warming than overly advanced local weather simulation fashions
Ø Most well-liked by the UN IPCC
Ø Used for the US Nationwide Local weather Evaluation”
He emphasizes that:
“Any alarm concerning our nationwide safety coming from scientists who don’t comply with the scientific technique is mostly a risk to our nationwide safety
“The scientific technique requires hypotheses and theories agree with bodily knowledge, not with fashions that don’t agree with bodily knowledge.”
Among the many issues is that the extent of worldwide warming from Greenhouse Gases (GHG) utilized by the is dependent upon two key components:1) the sensitivity of earth floor temperature to atmospheric GHG and aerosol concentrations; and a couple of) what’s the anticipated use of fossil fuels sooner or later?
If GHGs are outlined as carbon dioxide (CO2), methane, N2O and Halocarbons (the human contributions); then CO2 is the first GHG and different circumstances and aerosols contribute about 50% of the first warming impact of CO2. Nevertheless, naturally occurring water vapor is far more necessary greenhouse gasoline affecting earth floor temperature. But, water vapor is basically ignored in IPCC calculations till the top.
The 2 metrics utilized by the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Local weather Change (IPCC) and its followers can outlined solely by the worldwide local weather fashions: Equilibrium Local weather Response and the Transient Local weather Response. That is nonsense. TRCS group needed a metric that may be outlined by bodily knowledge. It makes use of transient local weather sensitivity outlined as doubling of CO2 within the environment as it’s truly taking place – at a gradual charge.
TRCS group makes projections of temperature will increase for CO2 concentrations of 600 elements per million (ppm) utilizing the vitality move mannequin within the literature by Trenberth, Fasillo and Kiehl (2009).
Doiron identifies his technique because the Observational Technique, it isn’t a speculative technique. He emphasizes that poorly understood issues don’t want untimely selections with vital opposed penalties. Moderately than make a regrettable resolution, it’s higher to collect knowledge to check hypotheses and fashions.
Utilizing the floor temperature knowledge from the Hadley Middle and the Climatic Analysis Unit (UK), HadCRUT, TRCS group discovered that temperatures will rise from all greenhouse gases by lower than 1 deg C by 2100. A doubling of CO2 ought to a most temperature rise of 1.2 deg C. Local weather fashions that separate CO2 from different greenhouse gases unnecessarily complicate the problems. The nation has an excessive amount of time to find out, utilizing the scientific technique, whether or not controls on CO2 are wanted.
As a facet observe, TWTW finds some difficulties with the HadCRUT knowledge, however it’s the greatest long-term, greater than 30-years, floor knowledge out there. See hyperlinks below Difficult the Orthodoxy and Change in US Administrations.
The Greenhouse Impact – US Modeling: The profitable Apollo Missions 50 years in the past had been a triumph for American science, engineering, and know-how. They clearly confirmed how these abilities may be employed, the significance of modeling, and the crucial want to stick to the scientific technique, together with frequent testing in opposition to bodily knowledge. In contrast with in the present day, laptop know-how was in its infancy, and satellite tv for pc orbits had been estimated by human calculators, not digital gear. As Hal Doiron discusses, in some methods, the modeling abilities demonstrated by US authorities entities seem like diminishing, not rising with increasing laptop know-how. Important testing in opposition to bodily knowledge is just not being carried out.
The August 24 and August 31 TWTWs mentioned the NOAA GFDL Fashions and the NCAR Fashions, funded by the Nationwide Science Basis. Of the fashions examined by John Christy and his colleagues, introduced in December 2013 and mentioned by Hal Doiron in his lecture, the GFDL-CM3 carried out the worst when put next with atmospheric temperature traits for the tropical mid-troposphere from 1979 to 2013. Over the time interval, the satellite tv for pc and balloon knowledge confirmed an increase of about Zero.2 ºC; the typical of 102 CMIP5 mannequin runs confirmed an increase over Zero.9 ºC and the GFDL-CM3 mannequin confirmed an increase of about 1.5 ºC – 7 instances the noticed rise. This margin of error ought to be unacceptable to NOAA.
The NCAR mannequin, CESM1, did barely higher than common, however enormously overestimated the warming of the tropics in comparison with what occurred, by over 3 times. Their 2018 finances was $227 million, many instances that of Christy’s Earth System Science Middle, College of Alabama in Huntsville. NCAR has no excuse for not testing their fashions in opposition to bodily knowledge.
Because the 1979 Charney Report discusses, local weather modelers claimed that warming brought on by carbon dioxide (CO2) could be enormously amplified by will increase in water vapor. On the time, there was no skill to check this assumption. Since then, the US has developed quite a few strategies to measure what is going on within the environment and to check the assumptions within the local weather fashions in opposition to bodily knowledge. Amongst others, John Christy has performed this and has proven that the assumptions should not justified. As Hal Doiron demonstrates, fashions may be developed and examined in opposition to bodily knowledge, exhausting proof, and validated. However the world local weather fashions haven’t been so examined.
US coverage needn’t be restricted by local weather modelers who’re trying to justify assumptions made 40 years in the past after they couldn’t be validated. In impact, the efforts of the local weather modelers seem like trapped by the boundaries of their very own making 4 many years in the past. There is no such thing as a purpose why US coverage ought to comply with the fashions as in the event that they had been Gospel. To stick to the brand new White Home memorandum described above, authorities entities that fund local weather modeling want to regulate their necessities and fund solely modeling efforts that embrace rigorous testing in opposition to bodily knowledge, observational or experimental. Testing in opposition to unvalidated fashions, or in opposition to elements of fashions ought to be dismissed. See hyperlinks below Difficult the Orthodoxy and the previous two TWTWs.
September Information Fad – Hurricanes: It’s hurricane season and a harmful storm, Dorian, hit an island within the Bahamas and stopped. Then, because it moved slowly in direction of Florida it dissipated, and turned north. Dorian first prompted nice hypothesis by those that don’t have any information of the historical past of hurricanes that storms are extra intense than earlier than. Then, the trail prompted nice hypothesis as to why and whether or not it’s a results of rising CO2. If the CO2 hypothesis the place right, then these residing on the US east coast would expertise extra—and extra violent— hurricanes. They need to be grateful that the hypothesis is simply hypothesis, as a result of they’re being spared of main hurricanes, class Three or better.
On his weblog, Climate and Local weather Science, Cliff Mass has a number of posts on the storm, together with one explaining the uncertainty in predicting what would occur with Dorian and what steers hurricanes. Typically the power to foretell climate occasions is way lower than generally supposed. See hyperlinks below Altering Climate
The Peter Ridd Controversy: The Federal Circuit Courtroom of Australia thought-about the case of Peter Ridd vs. James Prepare dinner College. Merely, the tenured professor was terminated for talking out in opposition to efforts to suppress his beliefs about distortion of science concerning the Nice Barrier Reef. Ridd was awarded $1.2 million (AU, provisional on submissions). Earlier, Ridd sought re-instatement, however later selected financial damages. After 35 years of labor on the Nice Barrier Reef, he believed that the harm to the reef from world warming / local weather change was enormously overstated by Australian authorities entities and publicly acknowledged so.
That is the second resolution in opposition to those that attempt to suppress scientific inquiry. On August 22 a Canadian courtroom discovered in opposition to Michael Mann in his litigation in opposition to Timothy Ball and awarded Mr. Ball courtroom prices, that will embrace all his authorized charges and related prices. See hyperlinks below Suppressing Scientific Inquiry and the August 24 TWTW.
The New Fram: The unique Fram was a picket three-masted schooner designed by Norwegian Arctic explorer Fridjof Nansen in hopes of being locked within the Arctic ice to float over the North Pole. Nansen had grow to be well-known for main the primary celebration to cross Greenland, on skis. He used the information gained to design the Fram. He knew freezing ice would crush a typical boat. He designed the boat to have shallow draft (Four.6 m, 15 ft), virtually no keel, a thick sloping hull with an outer layer of greenwood, be virtually one-third as huge as lengthy (10.6 m by 39 m), be nicely insulated, and have an electrical generator and wind mill for electrical lights. The propulsion system included a 220 HP steam engine. The design allowed the boat to drift up on the ice as soon as it froze. As soon as locked in ice, the Fram was on the mercy of Arctic Ocean currents, the wind, and the ice. It held as much as 16 folks and had provisions for as much as 5 years.
In the course of the first voyage, from 1893 to 1896, the Fram didn’t attain the North Pole, and Nansen set out on skis however failed as nicely. The Fram was used on an 1898 to 1902 expeditions to the Canadian Arctic islands and later used within the well-known South Pole expedition by Amundsen from 1910 to 1912. Fram didn’t sink, holds the data for crusing farthest north and farthest south of any picket ship, and may be considered in a museum in The Fram Museum in Oslo.
In accordance with studies a analysis trendy icebreaker, RV Polarstern, will depart Norway to spend the winter trapped in sea ice. The Polarstern has a displacement of 17,300 tonnes (metric tons), a crew of 44, a capability of 124 individuals, and 4 diesel engines totaling 19,00Zero hp. The aim is to check the Arctic and the way present local weather change is reshaping it. The expedition is predicted to final 13 months and value $130 million. Hope the brand new Fram is as nicely suited to the duty as the unique, even when the unique didn’t attain its goal. See hyperlinks below Altering Cryosphere – Land / Sea Ice.
SEPP April Idiot’s Winner: The winner is AOC by a landslide! Though many distinguished and never so distinguished folks had been nominated, resembling Ola Royrvik of the Norwegian Nobel Institute, Invoice Nye the supposed science man, Joachim Schellnhuber of the Potsdam Middle for Local weather Impacts, and Greta Thunberg, the younger factor; Alexandria Ocasio Cortez outpolled all of them – by far.
Though it’s troublesome to find any legislative accomplishments by AOC, one may say she has achieved a terrific deal in direction of incomes this prestigious award of a lump of coal. AOC, and her press, has helped provoke candidates for the nomination for President by the Democratic Get together into an absurd race to spend probably the most cash to destroy a dependable, useful system of vitality, significantly electrical energy, with costly, unreliable electrical energy.
The race to destruction relies on fears generated by fashions that haven’t been validated, and when examined in opposition to bodily proof, fail. Since regular science is dependent upon rigorous software of the scientific technique, one can time period this worry as paranormal science, supernatural. AOC’s former chief of workers, Saikat Chakrabarti, has been reported to say it’s not in regards to the setting, it’s about management. That’s the situation, increasing authorities management over the American public when it’s clearly not wanted. See hyperlinks below The Political Video games Proceed.
Variety of the Week: 5.5 million sq. km (2.1 million sq. mi.). By a number of organizations, the Amazon rainforest is estimated to be about 5.5 million sq. kilometers or about 2.1 million sq. miles. The world of the entire US is Three.eight million sq. miles, barely smaller than Europe. The world of the decrease 48 is about 2.96 million sq. miles (7.7 million sq. km), about the identical as Australia.
When claims that the Amazon is burning are made, no dialogue of the particular areas concerned are introduced or comparability of precise burning with areas of the US or Europe made. See hyperlinks below Speaking Higher to the Public – Make issues up.

1. A Scientific Roundup
The EPA intervenes in opposition to California’s rogue most cancers regulation.
Editorial, WSJ, Sep Three, 2019
SUMMARY: The Editorial Begins:
“Maybe you’ve learn that science ought to rule when figuring out environmental requirements. So why aren’t progressives cheering an Environmental Safety Company order declaring that the chemical glyphosate doesn’t trigger most cancers?
“In a unprecedented intervention, the EPA not too long ago mentioned it’ll not approve product labels that declare glyphosate is carcinogenic to people. Glyphosate is the energetic ingredient in Roundup, the favored weed killer. The herbicide has been on the U.S. market since 1974, and the scientific consensus is that it isn’t carcinogenic in people.
“The letter is a rebuke to California, which in 2015 mentioned it will add glyphosate to its official listing of carcinogens below the state’s 1986 Secure Consuming Water and Poisonous Enforcement Act, generally known as Proposition 65. California cited the World Well being Group’s Worldwide Company for Analysis on Most cancers’s discovering that glyphosate ‘in all probability’ causes most cancers.
“That is the U.N. outfit that has warned in opposition to most cancers from pickled greens, caffeine and dealing the night time shift. California’s transfer has impressed a flood of lawsuits in opposition to Roundup-maker Monsanto, together with a $2 billion jury judgment (decreased to $86 million by a decide) in Could for a California couple claiming glyphosate precipitated their most cancers.
“EPA’s letter is an try to revive science to the glyphosate debate and counter California’s rogue regulation. The letter cites EPA’s in depth evaluation of the scientific literature on glyphosate, in addition to the concurring judgments of regulators in Canada, Australia, the European Union, Germany, New Zealand and Japan.
“The company additionally cites its labeling authority below the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act, which ought to pre-empt state legislation. The EPA letter says it ‘considers the Proposition 65 warning language primarily based on the chemical glyphosate to represent a false and deceptive assertion.’
“The EPA letter also needs to be proof in present litigation introduced by farm teams in opposition to California. In 2018 a federal decide issued a preliminary injunction in opposition to California, discovering the farm plaintiffs would seemingly prevail of their claims that the state’s cancer-label requirement violates their First Modification rights.
“California’s Workplace of Environmental Well being Hazard Evaluation responded to the EPA letter by calling it ‘disrespectful of the scientific course of,’ however the reverse is true. California is the regulatory outlier trying to impose its requirements regardless of the precedent that federal legislation units nationwide requirements on well being and security when Congress’s language is evident.”
Boldface added. The editorial concludes with the assertion that the California state judges have largely excluded EPA’s conclusions as proof within the courts.
2. CNN Local weather Present Wasn’t Simply Boring
Trace to inexperienced media: Voters would possibly truly be extra liable to act if informed the reality as a substitute of lies.
By Holman Jenkins, WSJ, Sep 6, 2019
SUMMARY: The journalist states:
CNN’s seven-hour local weather city corridor with the Democratic presidential candidates was the rankings bomb you anticipated, and no surprise since there was little debate. If it was unwatchable, although, it wasn’t unwatchable sufficient for some. The Columbia Journalism Evaluate’s “public editor for CNN,” Emily Tamkin, beforehand insisted that moderators ought to proceed “on the idea that the local weather is in disaster,” and restrict themselves to calling for motion and faulting inaction.
In different phrases, make it an train in liturgy, not inquiry, in addition to a repetition of probably the most failed experiment in historical past: attempting to bully viewers into accepting predictions of a pending local weather catastrophe.
All this comes because the sixth “evaluation report” of the Intergovernmental Panel on Local weather Change, nonetheless two years off, is prone to supply nothing new on the vexed, contentious 40-year-old stalemate over how a lot warming truly may be anticipated from a given quantity of CO2.
It comes simply days after the stunning suicide of Harvard local weather economist Martin Weitzman, rightly praised in obituaries for an perception missing within the CNN city corridor: A local weather catastrophe is way from assured. It’s the low however not insignificant probability of a “fats tail” worst-case catastrophe that we should always fear about. (Mr. Weitzman put the chances at Three% to 10%.)
It comes as Weitzman’s scholar, collaborator and co-author, Gernot Wagner, tellingly has centered his personal consideration currently on geoengineering relatively than the seemingly misplaced reason behind carbon discount.
Phrases hardly serve to explain the mediocrity of local weather journalism, together with CNN’s. However at the least Elizabeth Warren had an fascinating second when she admonished a community character for attempting to rile up viewers “round your gentle bulbs, round your straws and round your cheeseburgers.”
After discussing different “distractions” the journalist concludes with:
The blame clearly can’t be laid solely on the ft of local weather press. There’s a lot else happening, by which journalists are however lockstep automatons. And right here it’s: With their resolution to resort to a method of hysterical exaggerations, vilifications and hackneyed partisanship, the greens have now succeeded in convincing voting publics that any local weather technique have to be catastrophic to their life, transferring trillions from their pockets to inexperienced particular pursuits.
Worse, voters are proper. Many local weather campaigners are extra occupied with social revolution than in local weather science. Some are extra occupied with expressing their longing for humanity’s loss of life and interesting in apocalyptic playacting than in bettering the human situation.
So to reply CNN’s non-debate and the concerns of the late Prof. Weitzman, if the small however not negligible probability of a local weather disaster is borne out, we already know what the reply goes to be: to throw a bunch of particles into the environment, at a value of maybe $2 billion a yr, with a view to block the estimated 1% of daylight essential to hold earth’s temperature in test.
And everyone throughout the scientific spectrum understands that is the place we’re headed. How this actuality may go unmentioned in seven hours on CNN is explicable solely by the controversy not being a debate.
Yet one more level: When and if the IPCC resolves its manifest struggles over local weather sensitivity (i.e., how a lot warming may be anticipated), the end result will essentially be to cut back uncertainty concerning the good chemistry experiment within the environment. Due to this fact it’ll cut back, or at the least reframe, the fat-tail danger that Weitzman’s followers fear about in the present day, which is basically a product of unresolved and proliferating uncertainties in in the present day’s extremely insufficient local weather fashions.
