The Magnificent Disinformation Engine

A better title for this post would be "cite your sources" but I need to mirror The Magnificent Climate Heat Engine at WUWT. Guess what? Just a few days after totally missing the importance of heat transport within the climate system WE has finally noticed it. WE read my posts, of course, because several people pointed him at them in the WUWT comments, although he was careful not to engage with those. So he's managed to learn something from me, which is good, but doesn't have the basic honesty to acknowledge that, which is effectively plagiarism, which is expected.

Naturally, he doesn't link this back to his previous post, because to do that would be to point out that his new discovery has totally destroyed his previous, which would be embarrassing. It will be interesting to see if any of the commentators there are both awake and bold.

Its shooting fish in a barrel, of course, but you must go and read Another uncertainty for climate models – different results on different computers using the same code [WebCitation]. The issue here is a well-known one - it dates back to Lorenz's original stuff on chaos. That trivial differences…
This is a guest post from John Mashey.

Ah, the (self) pity of it. AW has a long lame series of excuses for why he went all the way to Bristol to hear Michael Mann talk but did not ask, or even try to ask, any questions. Sou takes it to pieces, but you really don't need that. Obviously it wasn't necessary to ask a question in order to…

Did you notice Willis's response to the comment about climate scientists taking note of this common sense approach? Rather ironic given that it does indeed appear to be a "correction" motivated by your earlier post.

If one thinks would ask how many cars planes trucks airplanes factoriesoil and gas burning devices and humans were there on earth 100 years ago? So some would have you believe this much exhaust released into our world has no effect on climate? I would say that would be a person who holds alot of stock in oil coal and gas etc. These individuals are often brain washed by lush dimbaugh type radio and focus on political arguing not science.G-d save us from bread and circus solutions...Shalom jim ainoris
