Επιστήμονες & πάπας κατά Γκόρηδων για το κλίμα.Γιατί;



Θα προσπαθήσω να βάλω σύντομα τη μετάφραση.
Τι ξέρουν άραγε οι σύμβουλοι του πάπα (ο οποίος, σημειωτέον, άλλαξε πρόσφατα και την πάγια θέση των αυταρχικών θρησκειών περί «αυξάνεσθε και κατακυριεύσατε»…), και δημοσίευσαν το (κατά των λαμογιών των "υπερθερμασμένων" κονδυλίων) πρωτοχρονιάτικο μήνυμά του τόσες μέρες πριν, στο Μπαλί;
Γιατί δεν είναι καθόλου θερμοί με το δημόσιο διάλογο οι κατευθύνοντες τα περί «υπερθέρμανσης»; Φοβούνται μήπως καούν;

Pope condemns climate change prophets - Στη Daily Mail
11 Dec 07 - "Pope Benedict XVI has launched a surprise attack on climate change prophets of doom, warning them that any solutions to global warming must be based on firm evidence and not on dubious ideology.
"The leader of more than a billion Roman Catholics suggested that fears over man-made emissions melting the ice caps and causing a wave of unprecedented disasters were nothing more than scare-mongering.
"The German-born Pontiff said that while some concerns may be valid it was vital that the international community based its policies on science rather than the dogma of the environmentalist movement.
Senior cardinals close to the Vatican have "expressed doubts about a movement which has been likened by critics to be just as dogmatic in its assumptions as any religion."
In October, the Australian Cardinal George Pell, the Archbishop of Sydney, noted that the atmospheric temperature of Mars had risen by 0.5 degrees celsius.
"The industrial-military complex up on Mars can't be blamed for that," he said in a criticism of Australian scientists who had claimed that carbon emissions would force temperatures on earth to rise by almost five degrees by 2070 unless drastic solutions were enforced."

Climate warming better explained by solar variability

Greetings from UN Conference in Bali .
An inconvenient new peer-reviewed study published in the December 2007 issue of the International Journal of Climatology. Press Release from The Science & Environmental Policy Project - 10 Dec 07

Climate warming is naturally caused and shows no human influence:

Climate scientists at the University of Rochester, the University of Alabama, and the University of Virginia report that observed patterns of temperature changes (‘fingerprints’) over the last thirty years are not in accord with what greenhouse models predict and can better be explained by natural factors, such as solar variability.
Therefore, climate change is ‘unstoppable’ and cannot be affected or modified by controlling the emission of greenhouse gases, such as CO2, as is proposed in current legislation.

These results are in conflict with the conclusions of the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and also with some recent research publications based on essentially the same data. However, they are supported by the results of the US-sponsored Climate Change Science Program (CCSP).

The report is published in the December 2007 issue of the International Journal of Climatology of the Royal Meteorological Society [DOI: 10.1002/joc.1651]. The authors are Prof. David H. Douglass ( Univ. of Rochester), Prof. John R. Christy ( Univ. of Alabama ), Benjamin D. Pearson (graduate student), and Prof. S. Fred Singer ( Univ. of Virginia ).
The fundamental question is whether the observed warming is natural or anthropogenic (human-caused). Lead author David Douglass said: “The observed pattern of warming, comparing surface and atmospheric temperature trends, does not show the characteristic fingerprint associated with greenhouse warming. The inescapable conclusion is that the human contribution is not significant and that observed increases in carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases make only a negligible contribution to climate warming.”
Co-author John Christy said: “Satellite data and independent balloon data agree that atmospheric warming trends do not exceed those of the surface. Greenhouse models, on the other hand, demand that atmospheric trend values be 2-3 times greater. We have good reason, therefore, to believe that current climate models greatly overestimate the effects of greenhouse gases. Satellite observations suggest that GH models ignore negative feedbacks, produced by clouds and by water vapor, that diminish the warming effects of carbon dioxide.”
Co-author S. Fred Singer said: “The current warming trend is simply part of a natural cycle of climate warming and cooling that has been seen in ice cores, deep-sea sediments, stalagmites, etc., and published in hundreds of papers in peer-reviewed journals. The mechanism for producing such cyclical climate changes is still under discussion; but they are most likely caused by variations in the solar wind and associated magnetic fields that affect the flux of cosmic rays incident on the earth’s atmosphere. In turn, such cosmic rays are believed to influence cloudiness and thereby control the amount of sunlight reaching the earth’s surface ¬ and thus the climate.”
Our research demonstrates that the ongoing rise of atmospheric CO2 has only a minor influence on climate change. We must conclude, therefore, that attempts to control CO2 emissions are ineffective and pointless. – but very costly. S. Fred Singer, PhD, President Science & Environmental Policy Project

Ας επαναλάβουμε για άλλη μια φορά ότι
η φιλειρηνική θέση υπέρ άμεσης διεθνούς εκεχειρίας, αναδασώσεων των ερήμων σταδιακά με σπορές, αποκέντρωσης των βαβυλώνων και απλής εκπαίδευσης για την πιο αρμονική ζωή σε αυτάρκη αγροκτήματα-περιβόλια, ήδη άρχισε να κυκλοφορεί σε διεθνή συνέδρια, και ελπίζουμε να έχει θεραπευτική δράση σε όσους αδιαφορούν ακόμα για όλα τα κλιματικά ενδεχόμενα, εχθρεύονται τις συλλογικές αποφάσεις και νομίζουν ότι θα …σωθούν αυτόματα αν, ο μη γένοιτο, μια μεγάλη απότομη καταστροφή (όπως μια καθόλου αποκλειόμενη τεράστια ηφαιστειακή έκρηξη…) οδηγήσει την ανθρωπότητα σε μεγαλύτερο κανιβαλισμό από αυτόν που την αναγκάζουν οι ίδιοι να υφίσταται σήμερα…

"Sea ice — ice that forms from sea water — covers 40% less area than it did 26 years ago off the West Antarctic Peninsula. Warmer temperatures mean that the atmosphere can hold more moisture, which in turn brings more snow".

Να προσαρμοστούμε, όχι να κανιβαλίσουμε!
The IPCC Summaries for Policy Makers are the most widely read IPCC reports amongst politicians and non-scientists and are the basis for most climate change policy formulation. Yet these Summaries are prepared by a relatively small core writing team with the final drafts approved line-by-line by government representatives. The great majority of IPCC contributors and reviewers, and the tens of thousands of other scientists who are qualified to comment on these matters, are not involved in the preparation of these documents. The summaries therefore cannot properly be represented as a consensus view among experts.

Dr. William Alexander, Emeritus Professor of the University of Pretoria in South Africa and a former member of the United Nations Scientific and Technical Committee on Natural Disasters, warned poor nations and their residents that the UN policies could mean more poverty and thus more death.
"My message is specifically for the poor people of Africa. And there is nothing happening at this conference that can help them one little bit but there is the potential that they could be damaged," Alexander said.
"The government and people of Africa will have their attention drawn to reducing climate change instead of reducing poverty," Alexander added.

Ο Πύρρος έκανε κατακτητικά σχέδια.
- Κατ' αρχήν θα υποτάξουμε την Ελλάδα, έλεγε.
- Και μετά; λέει ο Κινέας.
- Θα προωθηθούμε στην Αφρική.
- Μετά την Αφρική;
- Θα περάσουμε στην Ασία, θα κατακτήσουμε τη Μικρά Ασία, την Αραβία.
- Και μετά;
- Θα πάμε στις Ινδίες.
- Μετά τις Ινδίες;
- Α!, λέει ο Πύρρος, τότε θα αναπαυτώ.
- Γιατί, λέει ο Κινέας, να μην αναπαυτείς από τώρα;
Ή, για να μεταφερθούμε στα σημερινά, γιατί να μην αποφασίζουμε ειρηνικά για την προσαρμογή όλων;
